What is Computerized Biofeedback?

Computerized Biofeedback testing and Bioresonance treatment is a highly effective way of testing and treating the body. This computerized analysis identifies underlying imbalances in organs and tissues. It also identifies impurities such as, chemicals, metals, toxins, yeasts and viruses, that can cause or trigger health problems. Additionally, the testing will indicate if there is a deficiency of vitamins, minerals and proteins in the body. If an imbalance, deficiency or impurity is identified, they can then be treated with a Bioresonance wave or frequency. This wave helps to stimulate correction of the affected area or imbalance, to help your body function optimally.

Know the Signs of Stroke

Stroke is the No. 2 cause of death worldwide, which means it’s important to know the warning signs. Remember F.A.S.T. (face drooping, arm weakness, speech difficulty or slurred speech – if you see any of these signs, it’s time to call 911). Other signs that someone is suffering from a stroke include sudden vision loss, a severe headache (caused by swelling in the brain), dizziness or imbalance, and nausea and vomiting (both of which are very common early signs of stroke). By understanding what to look for and taking the signs of stroke seriously, you could save a life!

How Old Are Your Arteries?

Your arteries carry oxygen-rich blood from your heart to your entire body. When you’re young and healthy, they’re wide enough to allow the blood to flow through easily, and their walls are elastic, so they can expand and contract as needed. But as you age, your artery walls might harden, as plaque — made up of cholesterol and fat — builds up within them, narrowing the vessels. This process, called atherosclerosis, puts you at risk for heart attacks and stroke. The Meridian Digital Pulsewave Analyzer is an FDA approved cardio wave analyzer that measures arterial stress by tracking the way blood moves through the arteries. It’s non-invasive and takes only minutes to analyze.

Gut Feeling

Poor gut health has been linked to fatigue, mood disorders like depression and anxiety, and a variety of conditions associated with nutrient deficiencies, such as anemia.
Fibre is a great way to keep things regular and increase the elimination of toxins and waste from your digestive tract. Eat a variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains and grasses. If reaching the recommended 10 servings of vegetables per day seems unattainable, consider adding a greens powder to your daily routine to make things easier. Look for a product that is gluten-free, contains probiotics, and is cold-pressed, as this maintains enzymes that improve the digestion and absorption of nutrients.

Releasing Guilt and Resentment

Our lives can feel like a big experiment with choices, options decisions and challenges that come our way to grow and learn from. Sometimes we are not always able to see the bigger picture and how our decisions might impact ourselves or others when making them. When we tightly hold onto guilt and resentment, it holds us hostage, punishes and keeps us entrenched. Once we can learn from our decisions, release the need to dwell negativity and gently begin to forgive ourselves, then and only then we can transform our feelings of guilt, disappointment and shame, giving ourselves permission to find a new-found calm and peacefulness inside. The power of healing work, allows us to forgive ourselves with compassion, then our energy begins to change, feel lighter and can allow ourselves the permission to live more freely and fully.

Physio for Lower Back Pain

There are numerous reasons people experience lower back pain—a sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, lifting things improperly, and weak stomach muscles are just a few of the causes of pain in this area. After a professional evaluation, a customized physiotherapy program can be created to help reduce and, ideally, eliminate lower back pain. Your program will include a combination of manual therapy, movement exercises, and strengthening exercises. While it can be tempting to avoid doing the exercises, they’re critical to healing the problem and ultimately ensuring the pain does not come back. By making changes at the causal level, you can heal lower back pain forever.

The Hearing Loss/Alzheimer’s Connection

Recent research suggests that improving hearing loss with hearing aids reduces the risk for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. In 2011, a team of Johns Hopkins medical school researchers discovered a significant association between hearing loss and the risk of developing these unwanted cognitive conditions. The worse someone’s hearing gets, the greater their risk of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia. The researchers believe their findings could have substantial implications for individuals and public health because hearing loss is treatable with hearing instruments. These findings underscore how important regular hearing tests are as part of preventative health care.
