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.

Treat Both Chronic and Short-Term Health Conditions With Ultrasound Therapy Machines

Reduce Joint Pain

Many individuals want to enjoy therapeutic treatments at home with quality equipment. At Health and Medical Sales Inc., we make it easy to order ultrasound therapy machines to reduce pain from conditions such as osteoarthritis or bursitis. Traveling to medical facilities for physical therapy is difficult for someone with an injury. In many cases, a health insurance plan will pay for a limited number of sessions for an injury or illness. Ultrasound treatment is simple to use at home with affordable devices that have applicators or transducers that are applied gently to the skin. You place a specialized gel on the application wand to help the ultrasonic waves absorb into tissue to relieve pain.

Increase Blood Flow

Ultrasound therapy machines are suitable for treating both chronic and short-term health conditions. When you move the application wand over a body part, the motion soothes the tissue while reducing scar tissue. The ultrasonic waves increase blood flow to stiff muscles and tendons helping damaged tissues to heal faster. In addition, the massaging techniques and ultrasonic waves help to decrease swelling caused by edema to relax tissue and joints. Medical researchers have discovered that ultrasonic therapies will also reduce calcifications in the feet caused by plantar fasciitis helping individuals to walk without discomfort. Athletes can find relief from rotator cuff injuries by applying the wand to their shoulder area to eliminate inflammation caused by overuse.

Heats Underlying Tissue

Portable ultrasound therapy machines are simple to order at our online specialty store because we ship products quickly while providing a 14-day money-back guarantee. Customers can choose from a variety of products with different power levels and price points to use at home for therapeutic treatments. All of the ultrasonic wave equipment from Health and Medical Sales Inc. arrives at customer’s homes with written directions that make it easy to understand how to use the devices immediately. Our company’s ultrasonic devices provide quiet low frequency sound waves while slowly heating underlying tissue to increase healing. Each therapeutic machine from our shop also has its own lightweight carrying and storage case.

Find the Perfect Remedy in Portable Far Infrared Saunas

Therapeutic Devices

Portable far infrared saunas are the perfect remedy for individuals with medical conditions such as arthritis that cause pain in muscles and joints of the body. Taking prescription or over-the-counter pain medications each day can lead to side effects including nausea and blurred vision. Purchasing your own spa equipment from Health and Medical Sales Inc. is also less expensive than visiting a physical therapist’s facility. You can look at full color photographs and read descriptions of products before making an order at our online specialty store. At the end of a stressful day at work, coming home to use therapeutic health care devices is easier than driving to a medical office.

Applies Heat

Applying heat to your entire body by using portable far infrared saunas is also a good way to eliminate unsightly skin problems caused by eczema, acne or psoriasis. In the past, physicians often recommended direct sunlight to patients to heal chronic bumps and rashes on their skin tissue. However, long-term exposure to natural sunlight’s ultraviolet rays can damage your skin causing wrinkles and cancer. The high quality and inexpensive spa equipment sold at Health and Medical Sales Inc. never use dangerous light rays that cause skin damage. In addition, the equipment is easy to assemble and use on a daily basis because it does not require filling containers with water to create steam.

Affordable Equipment

Customers ordering portable far infrared saunas for home use will enjoy their privacy while relaxing instead of needing to disrobe in a public facility such as a beauty salon that is noisy and crowded. Health and Medical Sales Inc. sells spa devices that require no special electrical wiring or installation to improve your mental and physical well-being. Getting inside the systems is easy by unzipping the device before sitting comfortably on a small chair. This makes it easy for our customers to use the affordable spa equipment in different rooms of homes. You never need to worry about injuries from high temperatures or slippery surfaces because the equipment is made to work at safe heating levels without moisture.

Ionic Detox Foot Baths Help Rid Your Body of Negative Ions

Caring for your feet is just as important as caring for any other part of your body. Some people might argue that it is even more so important to care for your feet since they do the brunt of the work daily by carrying your entire body around. Every once in a while it is ideal to have a relaxing foot bath that pampers your feet. Why not make your foot bath one that offers you health benefits as well, though?

An ionic detox foot bath helps rid your body of negative ions that could potentially harm it and weigh it down. Detoxing is simply the process of getting the toxins and wastes out of your body, and there are a variety of ways that you can detox. Some people use saunas to induce sweat and detox, and others drink certain types of teas and other drinks to help themselves shed toxins. An ionic detox foot bath allows you to shed toxins from your body via the pores in your feet.

The way that an ionic detox foot bath works is by targeting the ions in the water and then splitting them into H+ and OH- ions. The ions are then able to enter your body through the 40,000 pores on your feet. This offers you a completely natural way to cleanse and revitalize your body. Once the ions are absorbed into your body, then your circulatory and lymphatic systems transport them throughout your body where they neutralize oppositely charge toxins that are usually slow to exit the body. By doing this, they speed up the release of toxins from the body and stimulate all the organs in the body to operate more efficiently than they do on their own. After the ions have optimized the body for optimum function, then the toxins are released from your body through the natural processes of sweating, urination and defecation.

No matter what your age or sex, ionic foot baths can help rejuvenate your body and lead to a healthier lifestyle. Investing in an ionic foot bath can not only give you the relaxation that your feet desire from time to time, but it can also offer you health benefits.

Redmond Clay Prevents My Daughter from Needing Stitches

Yesterday, my 17 year old daughter discovered that our cat had caught herself a rabbit. She then took this opportunity to dissect the rabbit (I wonder if she will be a Veterinarian some day). But, in her enthusiam for discovering the rabbit brain, the scalpel cut deep into her hand, so that we could see the fatty tissue of the hand quite a lot. We quickly got a rag and put some pressure onto it and got her inside. Then we got out the jar of Redmond Clay and put her cut into a bowl of the clay. At our house, we always have some Redmond Clay pre-mixed and ready for use. In my opinion, Redmond Clay should be found in all first aid kits. The pain left as soon as the clay touched her hand! After a few minutes, she left the clay and got up to wash her hand and inspect the damage. While her hand was under water, she noticed just how deep the cut is. It was bleeding quite a bit and throbbing a lot! After she was done cleaning herself up, we put a glob of clay onto the cut and then wrapped her wrist and hand in plastic wrap and then a bandage. OH, and she has absolutely zero pain or throbbing with the clay on! Today, her hand looks like a raisin, but it the wound is closing up and healing. I love Redmond Clay — it my favorite product lately! It has hundreds of applications.
