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.
