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.

Dyslexia and Vision Problems

Did you know that symptoms that look like dyslexia can actually be a vision problem? Here are 3 vision problems that frequently mimic dyslexia: 1. Laterality/Directionality Problem – Many young children haven’t yet developed directionality skills. That’s why you might see a child holding their hands in an “L” shape to determine their left hand from their right. 2. Visual Fatigue – A child whose eyes grow fatigued will likely read at a considerably slower pace. 3. Poor Control of Eye Movements – Some people view extremely choppy reading as a symptom of dyslexia. However, functional vision problems are often at the root of some of these same symptoms.

Optimize Your Health

Optimize your neurology and you optimize your health! Did you know that the metatarsal area of your foot has over 10,000 nerve receptors? Their main purpose in life is to report back to your brain, via your nervous system, what is happening in your body. A neurological problem, such as MS, Parkinson’s, and Fibromyalgia can compromise messaging to the brain. Voxxlife HPT helps to improve that communication. VOXX HPT is a very specific sequence and pattern of neuroreceptor activation on the bottom of the feet that triggers a signal that aides in the brainstem reaching homeostasis.

Need a Lift?

Have you ever found yourself unable to get out of your chair? Although it looks like a regular recliner, a lift chair is designed with mechanisms that help it to act as a mobility aid. With the touch of a button, a lift chair can help comfortably maneuver you to a standing position with little to no help from others, providing you with increased independence. You can choose from a two position, three position, or infinite position chair, depending on whether you want to recline fully. There are lift chairs available to suit a variety of budgets and mobility needs!

Bioresonance for Kidney Health

The kidneys play a crucial role in maintaining overall health but are rarely appreciated until they become damaged and can no longer do their jobs. They work day and night, 24/7 to filter out the harmful toxins we are exposed to on a regular basis. When the load of toxins gets too much for your kidneys to handle, their functioning slows down, making one susceptible to kidney stones, infections, cysts, tumours and then finally a shut down. Do you know how healthy your kidneys are? If you have never done a kidney detox before, now is the time.

Alternative Therapies for Dementia

Dementia is a devastating disease that only gets worse over time. While there is little research on the impact of using alternative therapies for seniors struggling with dementia, many options help with relaxation and enjoyment in the moment, and that’s always beneficial. Researchers are examining alternative therapies to see if they have any effects on seniors. Without the research to back up beneficial claims, it’s best to use therapies of your choice to give seniors with dementia a pleasant experience and harness other benefits, such as the improved mobility or increased energy that acupuncture or chiropractic can offer.

Physio for Hip Pain

Hip pain can have various causes, including arthritis in older people and repetitive movements in younger, athletic people. Many parts of the body impact the hips and all must be considered when designing a physio program to help reduce and even eliminate hip pain in some cases. Your physio program will depend on the source of your hip pain and will ultimately focus on relieving pain and improving functionality, balance, and range of motion. Exercise is extremely beneficial for anyone who is suffering from hip. Gently opening up the hips helps strengthen muscles and improve range of motion so be sure to stick to your exercise program between physio treatments.

Spring Into Love

Spring is a season of clichés — birds singing, bees buzzing and people falling madly in love. The love sickness can be blamed on one very real thing. Dopamine! Dopamine is a naturally occurring chemical your brain uses to make you want things. There are other systems involved in love, but when it comes to new love, dopamine is the main culprit. The newness of spring provides an ideal context for starting a new relationship. The changing weather and sunshine energize us — especially after hibernating all winter. We’ve survived winter and now it’s time to start your search for love with the help of an experienced matchmaker.

Allergy Season Is Back

Many people suffering from head pressure, itchy eyes, and a runny or stuffy nose this allergy season will find only temporary relief, or no relief at all, from over-the-counter remedies. Alternative approaches, such as nutritional supplementation and Biofeedback focus on more than just symptomatic relief. They enable the body’s ability to remove existing allergens imbedded in the sinus tissues, thereby minimizing the histamine and inflammatory reactions. This stops the over-production of mucus that the body makes to try and push the allergens out. Take a different approach this allergy season – treat the cause, not just the symptoms.
