We begin with gut health as your gut wall houses 70 percent of the cells that make up your immune system. You might not attribute digestive problems with allergies, arthritis, autoimmune diseases (irritable bowel syndrome, acne, chronic fatigue), mood disorders, autism, dementia and cancer, but it is a well documented scientific fact that all illness begins in the gut. If you want to fix your health, start with your gut. So in your 1st session, we check your digestive enzymes and ensure they are working correctly. If they are low, it can give rise to an environment in your digestive system where toxins can flourish and ultimately create dis-ease.
Once toxins are removed and you are digesting your food correctly, we work on repairing the gut lining, replenishing your digestive system with good bacteria (probiotics) and we also deal with any other imbalances that may show; hormonal, chemical, energetic or emotional. Depending on the problem a client has, we also check steroid hormone pathways, thyroid, ATP (energy) production & liver pathways and inflammatory markers Th1 / Th2 & immunoglobulin markers.
Maeve’s current specialism areas are digestion, hormonal & emotional issues and she has a particular interest in autoimmune issues having undergone 4 major surgeries in the past for Ulcerative Colitis. Maeve’s own health journey led her to kinesiology 7 years ago and she began her training in 2015 and has been practicing since then. Maeve is currently studying to become a Master Practitioner with Australian Bush Flower Essences for emotional health. She is extremely passionate about personal development and is a huge fan of positive thinking, the principles of the ‘law of attraction’, the power of affirmations and the effect of using these for emotional and mental health.
She has a wealth of experience to offer her clients who may be suffering with digestive issues or in chronic pain and through BioKinesiology she has successfully managed and reversed her own autoimmune symptoms and inflammation levels using all natural supplements and herbs.
Maeve says; “Our genetic make up may load the gun, but our diet & environment-(chemical, emotional and physical) pull the trigger! We may have a genetic predisposition to autoimmunity or a certain illness, but if we heal leaky gut/ the gut lining, we can help the body to return to health.”
Maeve treats many clients with IBS, Chronn’s Disease & Ulcerative Colitis and also has experience in helping clients adjust to gluten free/dairy free diets, providing nutritional information to clients after consultation. Along with much success in treating IBS/ IBD, she has had excellent results in treating skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis etc. She has also had many success stories with people suffering with anxiety and depression, chronic fatigue and chronic pain.
Maeve holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education (2:1), having graduated from DCU as a Secondary School Music & Religion Teacher in 2008. She worked in the Education Recruitment sector for 8 years and has managed two Education Recruitment Agencies. However, with Midlands Kinesiology becoming increasingly busy, Maeve left her management role and is delighted to be working full time helping clients improve their own health. Her clinic is in Athlone town.
