Do you ever notice how when your physical health is good, your mental health tends to be better? That is no surprise.
Mental health cannot be separated from physical health. It is not mind over matter! That old paradigm of toughing it out rarely works out well in the long run. Keeping a stiff upper lip will certainly lead to having stiff joints eventually. When the mind tries to overpower the body, for a short while it may lead to fruitful results, like powering through the last kilometer in a 10k race. But in the long run, disconnecting the mind and the body leads to poorer health both physically and mentally. So how does the body influence the mind? A good example to begin with is if there are any inflammatory factors in the bloodstream, the brain gets them too. If there are any injuries of the body, the brain is working extra hard to heal the affected area and manage the symptoms. Harmful EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies like wifi and cell/tv towers and discs) affect not just the body but the mind as well. This can cause symptoms like cloudy thinking and unclear communication, a lacking sense of self, or even depression. Being hypersensitive is also a sign of cellular overload. For us to be in optimal health mentally, we need to take care of our cellular health physically. The Omnium1 system provides a fantastic tool to take care of our physical and mental health in a single session!
The brain is not only connected to the body, but also a literal part of the body. There is still so much yet to be discovered about the functions and mechanisms of the brain, it remains somewhat of a mystery to most of us. Our brain waves behave differently at different times of the day, and during sleep our brains do completely different actions than they do in the morning. The OmniBrain and Omnium1 PEMF mat is designed almost like a mindfulness hack. If you have trouble meditating, a great workaround for that is a session with the light therapy goggles. The lights flash at specific intervals that move your brain into more optimal wavelengths for a calmer mind and more aligned thinking. Meditation, prayer, and silent contemplation also share the same common goal - to rewire the brain to a more equanimous, or less excitable and calmer state. There are many different mindfulness techniques which can all be combined with PEMF sessions to make them more effective. Since PEMF helps optimize cellular functioning by stimulating the cellular membranes, calmer mind states are achieved with less effort since the brain and body are both being stimulated. The mind-body connection is so important to notice. To feel each breath as it passes through your nostrils, to describe the temperature of the breeze on your skin, both examples of mindful exercises that use the body as a point of reference.
Do you struggle to keep your “monkey mind” at bay? Do you ever feel like you need a little break from life? To slow your thoughts down. The OmniBrain system is a perfect tool help you steer clear of reactive states of being and regain control of your thoughts while improving your cellular functioning. It's like a meditation and cellular reboot at the same time. And it is portable! Take a quick 15-minute break to reset your brain during the day and see how the quality of your thoughts improve! You can use it with or without the PEMF mat, for a reboot to your system. Using mindfulness techniques is a highly effective tool to flex the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest) and get out of a hyperarousal state. Mindfulness can also help with bringing hyperarousal (shut down & apathetic) states back into balance. PEMF helps calm the nervous system when used at a low intensity setting.
Why is it important to take care of our mind and thoughts? The brain controls every single action of your autonomic and sympathetic nervous system. Think digestion, breathing, cellular regeneration for autonomic and fight flight or freeze for sympathetic. Our thoughts have an incredible power to change our nervous system response. Positive and loving, kind, compassionate thoughts improve our cells, and the opposite rule applies to harbouring negative, judgmental and thoughts.
The 70 trillion cells in your possession all respond to the thoughts and electrical impulses generated in your brain and nervous tissue to fuel them into action. We truly are biological machines. We need to treat our bodies well for our brains to work optimally, fueling our best lives. When our bodies are happy, so are our brains!
Both the Omnium1 2.0 and the iMRS Prime possess the features to support mindfulness and are something worth a try! If you are not quite sure just yet you could always rent a PEMF system and try it in the comfort of your home! Try PEMF through pemfglobalrentals.com and feel the difference.
Lyme disease, is an infectious disease caused by the Borrelia bacterium which is spread by ticks. The most common sign of infection is an enlarged red rash, that appears at the site of the tick bite about a week after it occurred. The rash is typically neither itchy nor painful. Approximately 70–80% of infected people develop a rash. Other early symptoms may include fever, headache, and fatigue. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.
Ticks can attach to any part of the human body but are often found in hard-to-see areas such as the groin, armpits, and scalp. In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted.
Most humans are infected through the bites of immature ticks called nymphs. Nymphs are tiny (less than 2 mm) and difficult to see; they feed during the spring and summer months. Adult ticks can also transmit Lyme disease bacteria, but they are much larger and are more likely to be discovered and removed before they have had time to transmit the bacteria. Adult Ixodes ticks are most active during the cooler months of the year.
Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks.
The CDC (Canadian Centre for Disease Control and Prevention) currently recommends a two-step testing process for Lyme disease. Both steps are required and can be done using the same blood sample. If this first step is negative, no further testing is recommended. If the first step is positive or indeterminate (sometimes called “equivocal”), the second step should be performed. The overall result is positive only when the first test is positive (or equivocal) and the second test is positive (or for some tests equivocal).
It is worth noting that most Lyme disease tests are designed to detect antibodies made by the body in response to infection. Antibodies can take several weeks to develop, so patients may test negative if recently infected.
Most cases of Lyme disease can be cured with a 2-to-4-week course of oral antibiotics. However, in untreated people, the infection often disseminates to the nervous system, heart, or joints, possibly causing permanent damage to body tissues.
Some patients can have nonspecific, subjective symptoms such as fatigue, joint and muscle aches, or cognitive difficulties for more than six months after recommended treatment for Lyme disease. This condition is called Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS).
It is unknown why some patients experience PTLDS. Some experts believe that Borrelia burgdorferi can trigger an “auto-immune” response causing symptoms that last well after the infection itself is gone. Other experts hypothesize that PTLDS results from a persistent but difficult to detect infection. Finally, some believe that the symptoms of PTLDS are due to other causes unrelated to the patient’s Borrelia burgdorferi infection. Patients with PTLDS usually get better over time, but it can take many months to feel completely well again.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF Therapy)
As symptoms of Lyme Disease can include fatigue, headaches, joint and muscle pain, and cognitive difficulties, PEMF therapy may be used as a natural, non evasive approach to help combat these symptoms.
PEMF Therapy supports optimal cell function. When cells are exposed to PEMF it allows for the increased intake of minerals, nutrients, and oxygen which supports the production of ATP (the body’s energy supply), increased ion transfer, cellular voltage, and circulation. PEMF also facilitates the removal of toxins, CO2, and Water, maximizing cellular performance.
As the production of ATP is increased, the body’s energy supply increases, helping to battle the fatigue often experienced by Lyme sufferers.
The secret of PEMF lies in the improvement of microcirculation, the circulation of blood in the smallest blood vessels of the body. Research has found that PEMF therapy is an effective tool to combat and reduce joint and muscle pain by reducing inflammation.
The Omnium1 PEMF therapy mat delivers a specialized therapeutic waveform to target these very small blood vessels promoting improved blood flow and increased oxygen and nutrient supply to tissues and organs.
This improved microcirculation and overall optimization of cellular function increases the human body’s ability to heal and repair chronic illness and injury.
With very few treatment options for Lyme Disease, PEMF therapy could be a good avenue to explore. Renting a PEMF system to see how it works for you could be the best next step. Many clients with Lyme have had amazing results from using their Omnium1 2.0 or iMRS Prime PEMF systems. They report more energy, better sleep, a reduction in pain and inflammation, and more.
