The George J. Goodheart Scholarship in AK is a newly established program to
help further the advancement of the scientific foundation of Chiropractic,
alternative health care, and Applied Kinesiology. The scholarships are awarded
at various schools, and each is hosted by a different sponsor. The Southern
California University of Health Services (SCUHS) sponsor, Metagenics, Inc.,
was founded in 1983 and is the leading developer of natural, science-based
nutriceuticals. Their mission is to help patients "achieve their genetic
potential through targeted nutrition." For more information on Metagenics,

The scholarship's namesake, Dr. George Goodheart, a chiropractor, developed
a new system of evaluation in chiropractic during the 1960s. He found that
assessment of normal and abnormal body function could be accomplished by using
muscle tests. Since the original discovery, the use of muscle testing has been
applied to over 30 different therapeutic systems to evaluate which therapy
is appropriate for each patient. This system is called "applied kinesiology" or
AK. Dr. Goodheart has annually published his observations since 1964 and regularly
produces audio tapes with current information. He has published You'll
Be Better, The Story of Applied Kinesiology, which describes his contribution
to AK. Dr. Goodheart was the first chiropractor to be officially appointed
to the Sports Medicine Modalities Committee of the US Olympic Committee, and
he served at the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics, as well as the first ICAK-USA
Research Director, a position he retains today.
