PEMF: A Powerful Anti-Aging Therapy

Humans are biological, chemical, and electrical beings. As such the health of our 100 trillions cells are constantly being challenged through the natural aging process and environmental factors such as Wi-Fi, cell phones, power transmissions, and food additives. This takes a significant toll on our cellular health. Enter PEMP (pulsed electromagnetic field therapy), the sole proven technology for enhancing our health on a cellular level through the increased flow of electrons. This powerful therapy reduces chronic pain and inflammation, eliminates toxins, increases bone density, improves brain function (FDA approved for Alzheimer/Parkinson’s) and more. PEMF regenerates all cells and accelerates the healing process.

Resilience Is Critical For A Happy Life

Charles Darwin once said: “It’s not the strongest or the most intelligent that survive, but those who are most adaptable to change”. Control is an illusion that we all wrestle with in our own way. The “good” and the “not so good” comes and goes in everyone’s life, with the only real constant being change. One of the biggest source of unhappiness lies in not being able to adapt to the change that comes into our lives. When we dwell and cling to the dissappointment of unmet expectations of what was supposed to happen but didn’t see coming, it makes it more difficult to adapt, shift and change course. Being able to shift gears, grieve and welcome new direction and possibility opens flow. What we choose to focus on affects our happiness and how empowered we feel in the world.
