Dr. Kokayi interviews fellow practitioner Erin Davis, and instructor Ken Campbell, on the practice of kinesiology as taught by the International College of Applied Kinesiology. Erin Davis practices with Dr Kokayi both in Manhattan and at his Manhasset office and Ken Campbell is a senior faculty member for the College. The practicality and depth of kinesiology is discussed in regards to a study that has been completed in South Hampton, UK, documenting in the strictest scientific controlled format, the efficacy of this system. Moreover this system of kinesiology has been used effectively in a maximum security prison in South Africa with the result that several inmates have been granted the privilege of teaching in minimum security prisons, something totally unheard of. Dr Kokayi also has Erin review her handling of a couple of his patients to emphasize the power of a wellness model of health where you start from the unlimited potential that each client can tap into when trying to realize their health and life goals .

Its been a couple of years since Dr Kokayi has dialogued with Dr Kellerman about his unique laboratory exam that helps clinicians to figure out exact formulations to balance brain neurochemistry. Dr Kellerman describes the role that excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters play in helping us to keep our emotional and behavioral balance. His lab is now able to legally operate in NY and most major medical insurances are accepted. Patients desiring to get off of psychotropic medication can have their progress monitored with this test whereupon custom blends of amino acid formulations can be taken to restore balance to the nervous system. Dr Kokayi has performed over one hundred of these tests which he has used to assist him in the treatment of such problems as anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
