Doctors wanted to put Joy on countless antibiotics for a chronic rash. Sure enough I found food reactions to corn and soy. We also supplemented her diet to help get rid of some toxins and get rid of fungus and yeast.

The rash started to disappear in no time. And after a few months she was able to go back and eat both corn and soy with no problems.

It’s one thing to diagnose a food sensitivity, but it’s a whole different story to actually correct them, and that’s just what we did. In most people the process will take a few months. Then, they can go back and eat the food again.

Fungus, yeast, viruses, bacteria, and parasites are actually quite easy to pick up with kinesiology methods. Now, obviously I can’t say for certain that somebody has them due to legal issues. However, the kinesiology testing can suggest the patient has these problems.

These problems are VERY common in our society.



Forget Johnny Weir rockin’ the tassel, I think I rocked the hair net pretty darn good.

What do you think?

If you get a chance to volunteer for the group Feed My Starving Children…


My wife Nicole and I went with some friends and had an absolute blast.

It was held at Eaglebrook Church in White Bear Lake. You need to make reservations because it fills up fast. Then show up and get your hair net (you get to keep it..score!) They’ll show you a video about how they are helping victims of the Haiti earthquake and other children.

Most of the kids are lucky to get 1 meal a day and they’re considered rich if they get 2.

Well, our friends and a whole room full of caring people packed enough food in an hour and a half to feed 126 children for an entire year.

They get a combination of a chicken flavored mix, dried vegetables, soy protein, and rice. It’s a specially formulated blend by Cargill to be vegetarian. A large part of the world is vegetarian for one reason or another so they made it for everybody. Some are vegetarian for religious reasons, and some because they don’t have access to meat regularly.

Everybody had a job from scooping food into a funnel, to holding the bag below the funnel, keeping the workers supplied with food, packing the boxes, sealing the bags (my job), and more.

The people that work for Feed My Starving Children were fun, had a great sense of humor, and played music the whole time.

There was whooping and hollering, people cheering when their group packed a box, and just a lot of energy in the place.

In short…

It was an absolute blast.

And, you feel so good walking out because you made a difference.

As I write this I am ironically doing an Isagenix cleanse day. It’s about 11:00 in the morning and I’m a little hungry, but it pales in comparison to those kids so many thousands of miles away.

If you can’t do one day without food to better your health every month or so, I would suggest learning more about what these children have to go through EVERY day.

We are so lucky, yet we squander our good fortune away.

These children are born into lives where good health is not much of an option…

while we CHOOSE to throw our already good health out the window.

Our oldest son Owen is always wondering when his next meal is going to be and what we are having. Both my wife and I said we wish he could have been there to see how lucky he has it.

We are definitely going to do more of this and include our kids when they get older.

Go to Feed My Starving Children to learn more.

Believe me you won’t regret it.

I have one request. Send this post to everybody you know. Post it to your Facebook account. If you have a Twitter account hit that green button up there and retweet it.

Everybody needs to have the option of experiencing the joy we had helping other people.

Oh, and feel free to leave some comments on how well we looked in those hair nets!


Dr. Larsen and Friends At Feed My Starving Children


Can you imagine being given a 5 pound weight restriction for life? Yikes. After a few disc herniations in Mikes’ lower back and neck this is exactly what the medical doctors told him.

Now Mike is able to ride four wheelers and do basically anything he wants to.

You’ll see a common theme on this website and that’s…


The ability to work with the tendons, ligaments, muscles, discs, and joints is unparalleled. If you want to get rid of your back pain rapidly and get down to the root cause you need a kinesiologist on your team.

End of story.


Those of you who don’t like the traditional twisting and popping of regular chiropractic, listen to Charles talk about his experiences. He was seeing a traditional chiropractor once every week for several years when he made the switch to chiropractic kinesiology methods. Like most people, he was skeptical at first, but watch until the end and you’ll see how happy he now is.

His wife noticed he was much more relaxed after his visits in our office, and his health has dramatically improved.

All of the changes you hear Charles talk about were accomplished with visits no less than 3-4 weeks apart. The body is a miracle and will respond very favorably when worked WITH, not against.

It’s been a pleasure getting to know Charles and his wife, and I’m happy I could be of service.



Not many people like hard forceful chiropractic adjustments. In fact, many are scared of them. That’s why I always try to do everything with the least amount of force possible. We have many options available such as the drop table, Arthrostim adjusting instrument, Vibracussor, and other kinesiology techniques.

So don’t live in pain out of fear! Linda is now backpacking for 3 weeks at a time with her daughter and granddaughter.

Arthritis Pain Relief Part 1

In this video I run through the first half of common reasons for arthritis pain.

Arthritis is NOT soley due to old age.

Instead, it’s what you’ve done to your body that is causing most of the problems. I hope  you learn something. Watch the video and leave me some comments below.



White Bear Lake Man Drops 7 Strokes On His Golf Game

Kurt came in basically with chronic pain throughout his muscles and joints. With applied kinesiology testing it was suggested that he had a heavy metal poisoning.

I had him take a few supplements to help his body clear the metals, and on his next appointment about 3 weeks later he was a new man.

Not only was his pain drastically reduced, but over the next few months he dropped 7 holes off his golf game for 9 holes.

Not a bad investment I would say.



This was a really fun case. It just goes to show that you need to treat the person, not necessarily where the pain is. We are living in the most complex time in history. Electrical pollution is a mounting problem. In this case it was quite severe from a very powerful piece of military equipment, but it can come from computers, cell phones, etc. just as easily.

Electrical pollution is real and easy to demonstrate.

Just as an FYI, people with Lyme disease also tend to have this problem. The bugs cause some kind of change to the electrical system in the body. If it isn’t corrected, recovery is very difficult.



After her son hops on his cross country skis and charges down the hill, Kathy decides to take after him. One wrong turn and she ends up bent over backwards injuring both knees and re-injuring a shoulder we had just finished fixing. She came in a week later in pain and about 20 minutes later was feeling much better.

I really have no idea how people live without kinesiology. That injury would have taken several more weeks with standard chiropractic treatments. But with a knowledge of the muscular and ligament systems, applied kinesiology gives a deeper insight into the presenting problems.

It’s always a joy helping people so quickly.



What Is Applied Kinesiology?

Imagine for a moment that you had a chiropractor, acupuncturist, naturopath, homeopath, and nutritionist all on your health care team. Now imagine they are all in the same room communicating with each other on the best route to take for your health needs. And as a bonus, they all understood each other.

You would feel like you were in good hands wouldn’t you.

If this sounds intriguing to you then you need to be under the care of an Applied Kinesiologist. Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a diagnostic technique like none other. Born out of traditional chiropractic and nurtured with Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts, AK gets to the root of ill health, and gets there fast. At times for AK practitioners, it almost seems too easy.

In the midst of our current health care debacle, we need a radical shift in how we treat patients, and AK affords just that. A way to simplify the process and get back to the roots of human physiology. Expensive procedures are usually not needed.

So what is it?

Applied Kinesiology is a system of evaluating body function by means of muscle testing. It is both a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. Muscle testing acts as a functional neurological tool that tells the doctor how well the patient’s nervous system is able to communicate with the organs, glands, joints, and other bodily structures.

AK is an interdisciplinary field and takes techniques from many other healing art disciplines such as physical medicine, osteopathy, acupuncture, and nutrition, and combines them into a workable and reproducible system that any doctor can use in his practice.

AK has many techniques that can be used to treat a wide variety of problems such as disc bulges and small herniations, TMJ dysfunction, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc. The techniques of muscle testing can also test for problematic areas such as food/chemical sensitivities, chronic infections, inflammation, and some organ dysfunction. All of the test findings are then correlated with the patient’s history and any other imaging procedures such as MRI, x-ray, or blood testing.

At the heart of the philosophy is the Triad of Health, comprised of the three main factors to good health. Structure, chemistry, and emotions.

Applied Kinesiology Minnesota

Each of these factors must be balanced to achieve, lasting good health. If one side of the triangle becomes deficient, poor health is the result.

Forming the base of this triad is structure. It has been said that structure determines function. Without a proper functioning structural system, undue strain is placed on the body.

Structure: This includes the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and organs of the body. Muscle dysfunction found with AK, causes abnormal strain across joints causing pain and dysfunction. But the ramifications don’t stop there. Without proper spinal joint function, conditions like allergies, indigestion, headaches, and the like are much more prevalent.

Without proper joint motion, the nerves of the body are stressed. Many of these nerves lead to organs and glands throughout the body. Stressed nerves equal stressed organs and glands.

Chemical: The chemical side of the triad is very important, and a cause of concern in our modern world. At no other time in history have we eaten food with such minimal nutritional value and been exposed to so many toxic substances. Not to mention the enormous amounts of drugs the population is taking directly, and indirectly through the food chain.

Without proper nutritional balance it is impossible to have a healthy body free of disease. The digestive system become dysfunctional, the immune system crashes, and the toxins are too much to handle.

Applied Kinesiology can aid the practitioner in finding the exact right combination of supplements, and the right diet for each individual person. This is invaluable in recovering from an illness or condition quickly and keeping yourself healthy for the long haul.

Mental: The emotional side of the triad of health can also not be ignored. Negative habits, repressed memories, limiting beliefs, and flat out mental stress can have drastic consequences on a persons structure and body chemistry.

AK has several techniques to help diffuse the stress and reprogram limiting beliefs and negative habits.

All in all, Applied Kinesiology brings together the best of the best in terms of therapies and diagnostic tools into one integrated system. It is truly the health care of the future. Very effective, and very cost efficient.
