After a shock diagnosis with MS (multiple sclerosis), Amanda Campbell was given a 50/50 chance that she could ever walk again. Within six weeks, she didn’t walk, she ran. Determined to understand how she achieved the nearly impossible, Amanda swapped her career in fashion for work in Kinesiology. Since then, she has become an accredited kinesiologist, and founded Bend Like Bamboo, her private practice. There, she dedicates her time helping others rebuild their lives from illness and stress. Specialising in autoimmune disease and the emotional stress caused by said diseases, Amanda has since made even more life-changing steps,”Taking a balanced approach,” Amanda believes that “nourishing her body on a cellular level, understanding her mind, and connecting with herself again, gave her the best chance of recovery and living a happy fulfilling life.” Discover her incredible journey and how she saves lives every day by following her on Instagram and Facebook.
EPISODE 54: AMANDA CAMPBELL – ON MS, AUTOIMMUNITY AND KINESIOLOGY
May 25, 2017 by Jules Galloway
Meet Amanda Campbell from Bend Like Bamboo. She’s a passionate kinesiologist with a special interest in autoimmune conditions. You see, when Amanda was in her 20’s, she was diagnosed with MS, and autoimmune condition that many would consider to be a life sentence.
From hardcore steroids and months spent in rehab in hospital, to finally being able to wriggle her toes, and then learning to walk again, Amanda’s road to recovery looks like a long and arduous uphill struggle. Then she discovered kinesiology, mindset changes and wholefood eating, and this became her turning point for transformation.
“I do believe I wasn’t listening, and life said, Alright – if you’re not going to slow down, I’m going to slow you down.” In this episode you will find out:
- Why Amanda believes she became sick in the first place
- The mindset shifts that had to happen in order for her to get well
- How she eats to maintain her health now
- The links between stress and disease
- What kinesiology is and how it works
- Who might benefit from kinesiology
- Why it’s important to see the body as a whole (taking emotions into account)
- What your different body parts might be trying to tell you about your emotions
- What she says to anyone who says kinesiology is “pseudoscience”
