We are more than meets the eye.
>At our OsteoStrong Centres we also have amazing biohack devices that can regenerate you at a cellular level and provide a boost to your immune system, helping you build your defence against viruses. Everyone knows that prevention is the key. Your body is able to fight off infection and viruses, if given the proper tools. So, one of the smartest things you can do right now is to boost your immune system. We are calling this the OsteoStrong Proactive Immune Boost System.
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 that danger signals from injuries and inflammation activate an immune response, but also activate mechanisms that will later on 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.
There is strong supporting evidence that our biohacks can boost your immune system, and these studies can be made available on request.
PEMF treatments can play a vital role in improving blood flow and boosting our immune system health.
PEMF mat therapy is fast gaining ground as an alternative therapy for various types of medical conditions. Practitioners and members attest to its benefits for relieving pain, reducing inflammation, increasing energy and enhancing the function of the immune system.
PEMF treatments help you achieve a higher-level cellular health. Here’s how it works. Our bodies emit an electromagnetic field with varying frequency. By staying indoors and wearing rubber-soled shoes, we insulate our bodies from the natural electromagnetic field of the earth, which happens to be the frequency that our cells function at their best. Over time our bodies develop a different frequency to the earth.
The PEMF mats help to realign your body to a healthier frequency. Additionally, the resonating pulse of the field emitted by the PEMF mats has an interesting effect on your blood cells, allowing them to separate from small clusters. This can allow for more oxygen and white blood cells (immune cells) to move throughout your body tissues. Many users of our PEMF mats report better sleep and reduction in inflammation and joint pain. Learn more about PEMF here:
Benefits of PEMF include;
- Improved energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation
- Improved sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol level
- Improved uptake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells.
- Balancing the immune system and cell regeneration
- Relax muscles to reduce stress and anxiety.
Hydromassage can improve lymph flow and drainage, promoting white blood cell (immune cell) transport, boosting our immune system and removing toxins.
One of the keys to your immune system is your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials.
The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. Unlike your cardiovascular system, your lymphatic system does not have a pump. As a result, your lymph glands can accumulate fluid and toxins over time.
The lymphatic system helps maintain fluid balance and plays an important role absorbing fats and fat soluble nutrients. Lymph nodes or glands located along the lymph system throughout the body are part of the immune system. They filter harmful substances like bacteria and help fight infections.
The spleen is the largest lymph gland and controls the amount of red blood cells and blood storage in the body and helps fight infection.
Apart from providing an amazing soft tissue massage,the Hydro Massage lounge and bed at OsteoStrong are an excellent way to support lymphatic drainage, and they feel pretty amazing too! Lymphatic drainage massage also aids in purifying and regenerating tissues, while normalising organ function, enhancing metabolism and boosting our immune system.
Normatec boots use dynamic compressions (pulsing) to help transport fluids out of legs including lymph drainage.
Designed by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood, lymph drainage and speed recovery, the NormaTec PULSE Massage Pattern employs three key techniques— pulsing, distal release, and gradients—all to maximize your recovery and improve your health and immune system. The patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs.
Compression has been proven effective in reducing the stress hormone cortisol, which also helps boost the immune system.
We really love our Red-Light therapy devices!
Simply put, these FDA approved devices produce a biochemical effect in your cells, which stimulate your mitochondria. These are the power houses of your body’s cells. Our red-light system can help reduce inflammation, prevent fatigue, reduce pain and improve healing.
Red Light therapy can also increase nitric oxide, the compound that heals the cells and improves blood flow which may stimulate healing to defend against disease, regulate your blood pressure and reduce inflammation.
Studies have proven demonstrated that Red Light therapy can strengthen your immune system.
Stimulate lymphatic drainage and boost immune function
As part of every OsteoStrong session we use VibePlate therapy to stimulate the Central Nervous System.
Being on the vibe plate stimulates the lymphatic system to combat lymphatic congestion, which helps the immune system. It can also increase circulation and lymphatic drainage, which is the body’s way of removing toxins and broken down fat cells.
Osteogenic loading has been proven to improve bone health which boosts white blood cell production and enhances the immune system.
Red blood cells and white blood cells (immune cells) are created in bone marrow inside your bones. Studies show a direct correlation between white blood cell count and healthy bone mineral density.
And guess what? Our Spectrum machines stimulate osteogenesis, which promotes healthy bone cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts. These cells are critical to keep bones and blood healthy. So, the healthier your bones are, the healthier your immune system is.
