Serrapeptase – The Little Miracle Enzyme!

Proven to be a safe and effective natural alternative to NSAIDs (drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), Serrapeptase breaks down long protein chains into amino acids that the body needs. It helps to reduce pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis, joint pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, and post-operative swelling. It even thins out mucous which in turn eases chronic sinusitis. Serrapeptase should be in a delayed release or enteric-coated capsule taken on an empty stomach. This allows the Serrapeptase to pass through the stomach to the small intestine, where the enzyme is then released.

Choosing an Orthopedic Brace

Orthopedic braces are medical devices designed to address musculoskeletal issues that may arise from disease, a congenital condition, or an injury. They are used to properly align, correct the position, support, stabilize, and protect certain parts of the body (particularly the muscles, joints, and bones) as they heal from injury or trauma. Orthopedic braces are available for many parts of the body, including knees, shoulders, back, hands, and feet. A qualified medical professional can determine what type of orthopedic brace is ideal for you, as well as the fit, type of support, function, and level of stability or protection.

Kids and Stress

Children face stress every day. It is important to recognize that every child is different, and so are their triggers and reactions to stress. It is helpful for both the children and their parents, to know some active ways to deal with everyday stress. Try some of these stress reducing activities to help alleviate symptoms. Breathing exercises, heading outdoors, exercise, practicing meditation, good sleeping habits, listening to music, playing with the family pet, doing puzzles, taking a bath, or simply talking to friends and family are a few ways to help your body relax and cope.

Avoiding Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is an impact or blow that causes your head to jerk forward or backward and can cause neck strain. The sudden force stretches and strains the muscles and tendons in your neck. Reduce your risk by ensuring the top of the head restraint in your vehicle is at least level with the top of your head. Position the head restraint so it’s as close to the back of your head as possible. Whiplash injuries respond well when assessed and treated by a physiotherapist. Prescribed exercise programs focused on stretching and strengthening are effective in managing these types of injuries.

Boosting Your Body’s Biofeedback

In the metatarsal part of your foot (the ball of your foot), you have over 2,000 receptors, each designed to give biofeedback to your brain. This feedback system is your neurological system. The brain uses that feedback to create homeostasis, or balance in your body of your various biological systems. VoxxLife’s HPT technology is based on decades of research and improves that biofeedback so your brain can better achieve homeostasis. By improving homeostasis in the brain, you put your body’s “self-healing mechanism” in the best position to work on your overall wellness.
