I approach each client as a whole person. Each recommendation and plan is client specific supporting the entire body.

A good thing to evaluate is how often you are having bowel movements. Your skin is also know as your third kidney. If your body has no way to flush through the kidney's or the bowels it will get rid of the toxins through the skin- AKA sweating. They first step would be to get you moving in the bowels.

I use muscle testing to find the root cause of your pain & dysfunction. Solutions include: chiropractic, deep tissue , reiki, dietary changes, emotional release, yoga therapy, herbs, and much more!

It seems like your nervous system is trying to detox something; on the chemical level maybe a toxin, on an emotional level maybe a generational trauma, or you could have a physical imbalance such as too much pressure on the nerve that regulates your hormones. There could be a variety of root causes that only muscle testing can really provide an answer to, but once the root of the problem is addressed, you will blossom higher than ever before!

Hyperhidrosis is abnormally excessive sweating that isn't due to exertion or heat. It can be generalized (all over the body) or focal (just in certain areas like the hands and feet). The hypothalamus gland is in charge of what is called "thermoregulatory sweating" or the type of sweating related to exertion or heat regulation. Emotional sweating is governed by the limbic system. Primary hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet is linked to a malfunction of the emotional sweating system. Secondary hyperhidrosis is usually caused by a problem in the nervous system. SOOOO this means there are many additional questions to ask and answers to chase down before a practitioner can know best how to help a person with this condition. A few questions I would have are: 1) Is there an issue with the hypothalamus? 2) Is the person taking any substance that might be creating the problem such as excessive alcohol or caffeine use, or having a reaction to a medication? 3) Is there a hormonal imbalance such as elevated estrogen, or hyperthyroid disorder, or a thyroid hormone replacement dose that's too high? 4) and, I would definitely want to rule out malignancies such as Hodgkin's disease. These are just the beginning. There are often many layers of complication so it is important to work with a qualified healthcare practitioner to tease apart the answer to what might be driving something like hyperhidrosis.
