GETTING TO THE HEART OF IT!

MyoTechnology - Getting to the heart of it
The year was 1989, I remember the first day of my apprenticeship like it was yesterday. As I stepped into the clinic, I was quickly overwhelmed with the amount of activity going on around me. The front office receptionist was busy answering phones and helping clients, in a large area to the left of the front desk, two rehab techs were working with clients on their exercise programs, while a third tech was explaining the benefits of proper posture and body movement to a small group. It was amazing to watch this all unfold in front of me!

In the time span of about 3.5 minutes, I was aware of at least 3 different languages being spoken all the while a 3 to 4 year old little boy, wearing faded, blue overalls stood in front of the huge fish tank in the front lobby, pressing his mouth and as much of his face into the front viewing glass, humming a song to his new fishy friends, and dangling his fingers over the top edge of the tank! Just a few moments ago, I was standing in a peaceful courtyard outside of this lobby, looking in, and completely unaware of world I was about to step into.

It was the first day of the rest of my life

One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned as a healthcare provider is to focus on the cause and not the symptoms! That is, not to say that it is unimportant to alleviate your client’s pain and inflammation; however, it is important to identify what is causing the symptoms, or as I like to say, “Getting to the heart of the matter.” A good rule of thumb with this perspective is that it can sometimes be a process of elimination to identify the root cause of the problem. It is important to not only look at the small individual details of the human genetic and physiological function, but you also need to step back and look at the human body as a network of systems that work together as one complete system. The more you understand the body’s needs the more effective you will be at helping the body recover, rebuild, and repair.

As humans, many of us have been conditioned to see aging as a negative phenomenon! And to complicate matters many of us find it difficult to intellectualize our own mortality. Aging is a beautiful and natural process, it is the opportunity given to every living organism to express itself within its present life span, and it is truly an amazing gift. Our goal should not be to live forever, but instead it should be to have the best quality life while we are here!

There are a number of effective ways to enhance an individual’s odds of attaining a better quality of life. Some of the more standard approaches take into account food and nutrients intake, while others address exercise and lifestyle choices, and some practitioners even offer genetic predisposition testing to pinpoint a client’s genetic weakness, which then allows an individual to modify their lifestyle with the hope of minimizing potential illness later in life.

There are a variety of medical modalities that can be beneficial in helping the body rebuild itself

Oxygen Therapy: boosts energy levels, increases your endurance during physical activity, helps cells recover more quickly from physical exertion, provides relief from stress and pollution, increases your mental capacity, and improves quality of sleep.

Vitamin Injection: contain the highest quality ingredients at the correct potencies without fillers or contaminants. Following administration, the active ingredients are completely absorbed by the body and do not undergo first-pass metabolism. The nutrients are immediately available for utilization to correct nutritional deficiencies. Because of the depot effect and the fact that more of the nutrients reach target tissues, conditions that include asthma, migraine, fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, cardiovascular disease, upper respiratory tract infections, allergies, athletic performance, and hyperthyroidism have been showed to improve over a short amount of time

Chelation Therapy: this therapy is a treatment used in conventional medicine for removing heavy metals (including mercury) from the blood. It involves intravenous injections of a chelating agent, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid. EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that they can be excreted in the urine. In addition EDTA can reduce the amount of calcium in the bloodstream, and because calcium is found within the plaque that can line diseased blood vessels, some health practitioners claim that chelation can be used to treat atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by reopening arteries clogged with plaque. They maintain that using chelation for this purpose is an effective and less expensive alternative to coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasty, and other conventional medical treatments.

Renew Therapy: One of the most effective therapies in the health industry today, which works on the simple principle of increasing blood flow to and from the heart there by increasing the amount available nutrients and oxygen to every cell in the body. In addition, it enhances the body’s ability to eliminate harmful toxins and byproducts. Benefits are as follows:

  • Increase in Energy & Exercise tolerance
  • Release in growth factors
  • Increase alertness (brain function)
  • Reduce or eliminate symptoms of chest pain
  • Reduce symptoms of Shortness of Breath
  • Reduce symptoms of Fatigue
  • Reduce leg pains from peripheral vascular disease
  • Increase in perfusion of arteries in heart as well as other organs such as the lungs, kidneys, liver, and the brain
  • Sustainable Increase in Coronary Perfusion
  • Improvement in sexual function for men
  • Reduce symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
  • Reduce symptoms of Dementia
  • Decrease workload of the heart
  • Retrograde Arterial Flow (Shear Stress) increases endothelial function
  • Peripheral Training effects (similar to exercise)
  • Improvement in oxygen consumption (VO2)
  • Improvement in ventricular function
  • Increase in Cardiac Output
  • Decrease in Cardiac Workload

DELIVERING THE PROMISE

myotechnology - Delivering the promise

There are two symptoms that I can say I see quite often in my clinic; “Muscle pain” and “fatigue”. It seems that no matter what the initial presenting symptoms that my client came in to see me for, whether it be for stress, insomnia or any other medley of presenting complaints, inevitably, during the review of symptoms, the client usually will share that he or she struggles with some type of pain or fatigue.

When clients come in with these two common symptoms, the cause is usually related to some type of acute or chronic injury. However, in some cases symptoms may be caused by nutrient deficiencies, endocrine or autoimmune issues, even adrenal fatigue. On occasion, it is necessary to refer a client for further testing.

So, imagine my surprise and frustration, when one of these clients walked into my clinic and after evaluation and treatment of these major categories, the client did not improve in his or her symptoms of fatigue and generalized muscle aches and pains.

It’s for this reason that I have spent many hours researching, investigating and testing numerous therapies that could possibly assist the human body to repair, rebuild and enhance an individual to achieve a higher quality of life.

Common knowledge tells us that healthy blood circulation equates to a healthier and longer life. Blood delivers the oxygen and nutrients necessary for the body to rebuild itself at the cellular level; anything we can do to help our body with that process is of great value.

In my experience, Renew therapy has proven to be an incredibly versatile tool for this purpose. My clients will often feel relief from inflammation, spasms, stiffness and PAIN within a few sessions. It is a drug-free, non-invasive procedure that is proven to accelerate tissue healing and improve circulation. Promoting natural healing in this way helps to alleviate symptoms with no side effects, no scar tissue; and the effects are cumulative!

How does Renew therapy work? Renew is designed to utilize compression to enhance the flow of blood penetration to the tissue in order to stimulate cells to produce more nutrients and draw more oxygen to the damaged areas. This deep penetrating blood flow activates a biochemical cascade of events that result in rapid cellular regeneration, normalization and healing.

This type of treatment also releases tissue endorphins and affects nerve cells, resulting in a decreased perception of pain. It also reduces edema through the dilation and constriction of the lymphatic vessels and accelerates healing with the increased blood flow.

The procedure, itself, is pain-free. Clients merely experience a mild to moderate and comfortable squeezing rhythmic sensation on the legs and thighs, which can have quite a calming effect after the client has adjusted to the sensation.

Amazing Results – Patients often notice relief of pain after only a few sessions. Their need for medication reduces, even sometimes leading to the eliminated need for narcotic pain medications. People report being able to sleep better and have a true appreciation for their improved quality of life.

Life, Go get it!
