    Anyone have experience with this?

    Today in one of my classes we had a doctor come in and explain it. Some of the stuff was REALLY far out there but it was really interesting. He explained how things like sugar, dairy, meat, and other foods, depending on the person, can have a serious effect on your body.

    He did an experiment on 3-4 people. He pushed down on their arm to show the resistance of the muscle, then had them put a small amount of sugar on their tongue and showed the resistance just with sugar on their tongue. I don't know if they were faking it but all of them had their resistance drop significantly!

    I am not usually one to believe in this type of stuff but it was really weird that they all experienced the same thing. He had one of the kids put water in his mouth and when he pushed on his arm it showed no change, but then he put coke in his mouth and his arm just collapsed when he pushed on it. His reasoning was that sugar is poison to the body so your muscles and body react accordingly.

    Im kinda skeptical but it was pretty interesting, something I might look into more :dunno:

    I've never heard of anything like that. Unless he had a god damn force gauge to show that he was acutally applying the same force I don't believe any of it.

    Suger is a poison to the body give me a fucking break. So if I put some FRUCTOSE in my mouth that is from FUCKING FRUIT. IT IS POISON TO MY BODY? GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK.

    Was this in college? At MSU? If so, I'm suddenly ashamed to go here. That was hardly a good "test," and in no way proved anything. Check out the ideomotor effect.

    Cliff notes: it's bullshit.

    chiropractor or something with a focus on like weird shit....he did this thing on my professor where the professor put his hand on a certain meridian or something and if his arm muscle became weak when the doc pushed down on it, then that means something is wrong with his gull bladder or cranial bones

    No, no it wouldn't.

    we had a high school health teacher ask a fairly in shape girl to come up to the front of the class, he then asked for a cigarette, he knew someone there had one. He said no one would get in trouble. He got a cig. from one of my classmates.

    Then he had her hold out both her arms out to her sides, asked to resist him pushing down on one arm. Then he had her squeeze the cig for a few seconds and while it was in her hand he pushed down on that arm, her resistance was weakened significantly with the side the cig was on.

    :dunno:

    maybe just power of suggestion/placebo, but it was interesting.
