FIR-Real Portable Sauna Donations/Ginger Roth Update

Here at HealthandMed.com we want to be a part of the change to help others in need! Over the past few years we have asked our customers for help by purchasing our FIR-Real Portable Sauna systems. We then took $15.00 from every sale and donated the money to help our dear friend Ginger Roth. Ginger is a young girl who is suffering from severe Cerebral Palsy. Thanks to all of our HealthandMed.com customers we were able to donate a service dog named Cocoa to help Ginger with the many needs she has day to day. Mark Axelson, Owner of HealthandMed.com had the great privilege to  meet Ginger Roth this past weekend and said that Ginger and Cocoa seemed very happy together and look very cute together(as you can see from the image below). Ginger said that Cocoa helps her with numerous daily tasks that she may struggle with like carrying things that Ginger cannot. Cocoa straps on a special carrying case over his back and away they go! Cocoa also helps Ginger with things like entering buildings with Handicap door openers. So once again HealthandMed.com would like to thank each and every one of our customers that have purchased a FIR-Real Portable Sauna system and made it possible for us to help out someone in need like our good friend Ginger Roth and Cocoa! Best of wishes to all of you and remember STAY HEALTHY! Check out our systems here at http://www.healthandmed.com/c-314-infrared-steam-saunas.aspx

Frequently Asked Questions for Ionic Foot Detox Machines

We often get calls and questions from customers about how to use their Ionic Foot Detox Machines or why their Ionic Foot Bath isn’t working. These troubleshooting questions are usually easy fixes that could be avoided by understanding a few things. Today I thought I’d write a blog post to help users troubleshoot some of those issues. If this article doesn’t cover your questions give us a call (888-649-3650) or click here for more information about Ionic Foot Detox Machines.

My Foot Detox Machine Keeps Beeping At Me And Shutting Off? 

When your machine is continually beeping at you it means you have put too much salt in the water. This excessive salt causes the amperage of the machine to exceed the 2.0 mark. If the machine exceeds 2.5 it will shut itself down. Some machines will say “add water.” So what does this all mean? It simply means that the extra salt in the water is conducting too much electricity.  To avoid this, simply turn your machine on without putting any salt in the water. From there, check the amperage reading on the machine. If it is below 1.3 then go ahead and add one small pinch of salt in between your finger and thumb. Make sure to give the salt and water a few seconds to dissolve before looking at the amperage reading again. Continue this process until you get the machine to the target level of 1.5-2.0. If you have already added too much salt, simply add more water if possible, or dump out the water and start again.

The Machine Isn’t Showing Any Numbers At All?

If the machine isn’t showing any amperage readings at all there could be one of a few problems. The first thing you will want to do is add salt to see if you can get the amperage to raise to a readable level. If adding salt does not fix the problem it is likely your array has reached the end of it’s usage period. Use another array to see if the machine will work properly with a new array. If neither of these two options work double check the instruction to make sure you have the machine on correctly, the power/voltage switch is set to the correct side, the fuse is still good, your wrist strap is on and secure (if your machine uses one), and the mode is set to the recommended setting.

Amperage Is Jumping Around

It is typical for the amperage of a machine to fluctuate in between .1 to .2. However, if your foot detox machine starts jumping by .5 or more this is usually a sign that your array is starting to fail. These large jumps in the amperage readings

My Favorite New Product – Redmond Clay!

Here at HEALTHandMED.com we have some amazing, life changing products. Often times as I’m testing the product I get to see first hand how amazing they truly are. The below story is an example of this.

My wife Ingrid was recently visiting her friend Jen who had just spent the entire day outside in the yard gardening, while wearing a swimsuit.  The temperature was not too hot (in the 70′s), so Jen didn’t realize that she was “cooking” her skin.  However, by the end of the day she had an excruciatingly painful sunburn.  Ingrid asked what she had applied to the skin to provide relief (both ladies love and use natural healing products).  ”Did you try aloe vera,” asked Ingrid.  ”Yes,” replied Jen.  ”Coconut oil, vinegar, or homemade lotion,” asked Ingrid?  ”Yes,” Jen replied to all.  None of these treatments had helped and she was still highly uncomfortable.  Then an idea came to Ingrid.  “What about Redmond Clay,” asked Ingrid?  ”No, I haven’t tried that, but I am a little afraid, my skin hurts when it touches anything,” replied Jen.   So they decided to try some Redmond Clay in a small spot.  “Hey, not only does it not hurt, but it actually feels nice and cool.”  So Ingrid proceeded to apply a thick coat of Redmond Clay all over her shoulders and back.  The Redmond Clay soon became warm, almost as if it was drawing the heat out of the skin.  Later on that night, Jen was able to use a shower without pain!

This isn’t a unique story. The amazing properties of this unique clay have a drawing and pulling power. This enables the clay to be used both internally and externally in a variety of ways! You can see those uses here. Some of the most common uses refer to detoxification, skin irritants (rashes, sun burns, stings, bites), and stomach health. Not only this, but the Redmond Clay company has created an entire line of products that expound upon the amazing properties of this unique clay. Please comment or email us to inform us how this clay has helped you!

Low Back Pain Solution!

About a month ago I was lifting at the gym and hurt my lower back. The back pain had been coming on for a few months, however, this particular day of lifting put it over the edge. Growing up in a family of chiropractors I knew some of the benefits of traction tables, which gently pull the upper and lower body causing your back and spine to stretch. Personally I love using these machines, but they are quite expensive to use on a regular bases. So I decided to try out the Teeter Inversion Table.

This device simply grasps your feet and allows you to tilt backwards stretching out your back! Immediately when I tilted back I could feel enormous amount of pressure being taken off of my lower back. Its hard to explain how great this stretching, relieving effect felt. The better part of the effect is this doesn’t just aid back pain relief, but aids in the healing of the back. Often times as our backs get compressed and pinched, the circulation stops flowing to these areas and relief can never be found. By stretching the spine and allowing fluids to enter into these areas, the body will begin healing and regenerating these damaged tissues. This means that prolonged use of a Teeter Inversion or traction tables will allow for long term healing and relief, as well as, short term pain relief.

On top of this, after I used the Teeter Inversion Table I walked over and got on our Professional Vibration Machine to try to loosen up my back where it was pinching. This was the icing on the cake! After the stretching, decompression effects of the Inversion Table, the Vibration Machine shook up my lower back and allowed it to slip back into its proper alignment. Keep in mind that there are a variety of ways to use the vibration machine, which enable you to focus movement on specific areas of the body. I focused on stretching the lower back by leaning on the handle bars while holding my legs straight, getting on my knees while resting my forearms on the plate, and sitting my butt on the plate while leaning forward to touch my toes. These three simple movements allowed the machine  to focus on my lower back and cause amazing pain relief!

This blog post highlights the benefits the devices posed for me, but the awesome thing about these items is that there are many more uses! The Vibration Machines we offer at HEALTHandMED.com create a variety of opportunities for healing and exercise to all users. If you have specific questions about what these machines can do for you, please comment below and we will be sure to respond! Thanks for reading and be healthy!

Benefits of Infrared Saunas

You may wonder what is so special about Far Infrared Heat. Is it a natural health item? What health benefits does it pose for me?

Infrared is an extremely natural heat source that is emitted by the sun! It is what causes plants to grow and the world to function accordingly. This energy can enter our bodies and heat it from within. Due to these penetrating properties, this particular heat source enables deeper healing and detoxification. As the heat pierces the body and muscles it increases blood circulation and metobolic rates. This increase enables the body to heal faster and more efficiently.

Take into consideration when you get sick or your body is trying to rid itself of illness, the bodies first reaction is to raise the bodies temperature in the form of a fever. Fevers are a way of healing and detoxing the body of impurities. Far Infrared Heat could be compared to giving your body a fever so it doesn’t have to take all the energy to do so itself. Not only that, but it enables your body to heal and purify itself to a level beyond what you’ve experienced before! Individuals often use infrared heat to combat and beat illnesses such as Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, and heavy metal poisoning.

Beyond healing from illnesses , using Far Infrared Saunas is an effective way to lose weight. As mentioned before the heat source enters the body to increase the circulation, but also increases metabolic rates. This means an increase in calories burned! Some compare the amount of calories burned to that of a workout at a gym!

If you need help healing, detoxifying or losing weight Infrared Saunas are a great place to start. We specifically carry our own brand of Fir-Real Saunas to help guarantee quality and support of our products. Any Fir-Real Sauna purchased through HEALTHandMED.com come with an exclusive 1 year warranty to insure your satisfaction.

Alkaline Water – Why pH Matters

Alkaline Water is a key component to raising your bodies pH levels. You may not remember your high school biology class, but a quick refresher tells us that a pH level of 0-7 is said to be acidic, while 7-14 is known as alkaline. Now that this is clarified you may ask, “Why would I want to raise my pH level?”

Over the centuries there has been continual research that has shown that individuals with a blood pH level (alkaline level) prove to have better overall health. The body tends to regulate its pH levels around 7.35 by using alkaline buffers. When we eat or drink something acidic, our bodies must use these buffers to raise our pH levels. If we eat and drink too much with acidic content, our body will not be able to keep up with the amount of buffers needed, thereby dropping our pH levels. This is where ionized alkaline water treatment comes into play. By using an Alkaline Water Ionizer that turns the pH level of the water to alkaline, it enables our body to raise its overall pH level.

As you look at the chart below you can see how many of the foods we eat today are acidic! If we don’t try to control this it presents hazards to our health. Doctors describe the benefits of higher pH levels as a well oiled  and cleaned machine. Higher pH levels allow our bodies to lubricate joints, keep blood more clean of impurities that lead to heart ailments, assist with chronic diseases, and even help the fight against cancer.

The easiest way to receive these benefits and many more is to drink water with a higher pH level (alkaline level). Chansons Water Ionizers allow everyone to take part in this. Chanson is known to be the best in the industry of water ionizers and many more materials to read here. Here at HEALTHandMED.com we offer long warranties on the products and have more information as well. Remember to use Paypal Bill Me Later if you want the benefits, but are not sure you can afford it today!

Types of Vibrations & Their Benefits

Inside of the vibration plate machine category, there are 3 different types of motions to consider when making a purchase.

The first and most popular is the oscillating motion. This motion acts as a see-saw allowing the vibration plate to go up and down pivoting over a center point. This up and down motion translates into specific benefits. Oscillating motion helps to increase lymphatic drainage, aid weight loss, and improve fast twitch muscles.

The second most common motion is the triplanar motion. This motion doesn’t move the vibration plate side to side, but rather straight up and down, as well as, forward and back. These variations of movements create a spiral type motion. This type of vibration has coined the term “tri-planar.” This motion is great for increasing muscle strength, bone density and more. You do have to be a little more careful though, because this motion is harder on the joins and body. That being said, most professional sports teams, rehab clinics and chiropractors purchase and used this type of machine prior to the introduction and affordability of the dual motion machines.

The last motion to be discussed is the dual motion. This is the newest style of motion and the most useful. Their vibration plate movement includes the see-saw oscillating and the triplanar motions at the same time. They also give you control to do one motion or the other when you want to. This level of control and movement enables all users to use the machine as intended for their specific needs.

Here at HEALTHandMED.com we carry two different styles of the dual motion (motor) vibration plate machines. You can view and compare the differences here. These machines are some of our top selling items due to the fact that our customers see results.
