Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Energy and Red Light Therapy – a powerful duo!
When you enter our Wellness centres, you are not just embarking on a “bone density strengthening program”. There is SO MUCH MORE that we offer, and our experienced & knowledgeable team are just bursting at the seams to not only educate but support you in all elements of health & wellness. Our goal is to support to live a life of maximum physical freedom and functional performance.
You may have heard us talk about our regenerative technologies that do some cool things to our internal world.
How many of our amazing technologies have you tried?
Some of these can develop you at a cellular level and provide a boost to your immune system, helping you build your internal defence.
Everyone knows that prevention is the key and that is exactly what we practice at OsteoStrong. Your body is awesome at fighting off infection and viruses, if given the proper tools. So, one of the smartest things you can do is to ensure you know the best ways to boost your immune system.
There is a lot of ongoing and up and coming research to support the theory that there is interconnection between the immune system and bone conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside bones that produces red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells.
Lymphocytes (our white blood cells) are of fundamental importance in the immune system because lymphocytes are the cells that determine the specificity of the immune response to infectious microorganisms and other foreign substances. In human adults, lymphocytes make up roughly 20 to 40 percent of the total number of white blood cells. They are found in blood and are concentrated in central lymphoid organs and tissues, such as the spleen, tonsils, and lymph nodes, where the initial immune response is likely to occur.
Our immune system is comprised of a complex network of organs, cells and tissues that interact with other organ systems. This network allows the immune system to keep its dynamic equilibrium (homeostasis) through activating and inhibitory signals, allowing it to adapt to environmental clues. There is significant scientific evidence that shows danger signals from injuries and inflammation activate an immune response, but also activate mechanisms that will later negatively regulate immune cell activation.
Having a healthy immune system permits us to interact with our environment safely, keeping invading pathogens under control, including bacteria and viruses.
Today we are going to highlight two of our immune boosting technologies, that work quite nicely together!
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field mat and Red Light Therapy!
PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field mat):
We often get questions around our PEMF mats like “what does it really do?” and “how is it helping me when I can’t feel anything?”. Quite simply, these mats match the earth’s magnetic fields which are low frequency and low intensity, to pulse throughout the body working at an internal level, stimulating your muscle cells to give you numerous long term benefits. In fact, PEMF is widely used as a treatment by hospitals in Europe, as well as professional athletes all around the world for preparation and recovery!
Think about when you go to the beach & kick off your shoes to walk in the sand. Other than the actual “feeling” of the beautiful soft sand beneath your feet, do you really feel & understand the benefits you are receiving? Probably not! Other than the feel-good factor you get…unless of course you have researched the positive effects of grounding & earthing. To put it simply, when you connect to the Earth barefoot, you are absorbing electrons & the amount you absorb is determined by the amount your body needs to balance the electrical charges inside you. This means that we become “electrically stable” through these electrons in the ground … this in turn leads to better blood flow, reduces inflammation, improves your immunity & pain management, as well sleep, and decreases stress in our bodies.
Red Light Therapy:
As for the Red Light, we get questions like “what are those panels?”, “what does it do?” and “am I going to get burnt”
Our Red Light Therapy stimulates the mitochondria (power generator cells) which increases cellular energy to boost your immune system. The exposure to red light produces a fascinating biochemical effect in your cells, which stimulate your mitochondria. These are the power houses of your body’s cells and you really want them working at their best! Our red-light system can help reduce inflammation, prevent fatigue, reduce pain, and improve healing.
So, you can see with the combination of both technologies the opportunity to create an environment for internal healing is extraordinary!
With this greater understanding of bone loss and the increasing recognition of the close interactions between bone cells and immune cells, it gives rise to many more questions that will continue to be researched in the future.
When the immune system is strong, it couples nicely with our osteogenic loading equipment (Spectrum) that strengthens your foundation. A no brainer for optimising and accelerating the results many, if not most, of our members are wanting to achieve!
If you haven’t yet tried and experienced the regenerative technologies as part of your membership, reach out to your centre and session coaches to find out how it can really accelerate your health and wellbeing.
