Whether you’re in pain, want to look better or just need some R&R, our Corona health center might be the answer you’ve hoped to find. Many doctors are now looking at alternatives to medication that can cause dangerous side effects or looking for ways to help patients that haven’t had the success they had hoped to achieve. It’s one reason there are alternatives that either boost the present medical treatment or provide a different approach to the “take-a-pill” method. Some of these include float therapy, cryotherapy, infrared sauna and meditation.
Cryotherapy has been around since the 1970’s and uses the bodys natural healing ability.
Cryotherapy involves stepping into a chamber or using super cooled air that’s approximately -200 degrees Fahrenheit and -256 degrees Fahrenheit for three minutes. The body reacts initially by constricting the peripheral blood vessels and sending the blood deep inside to keep it warm. It loads up with oxygen and nutrients and when you step out, increases circulation to send them to all parts of the body. It also boosts the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain reliever. It can bring relief of pain and help speed healing, while also dealing with a number of other conditions.
If you want to boost healing, have trouble sleeping or need some relief from stress, float therapy might be your choice.
Float therapy removes all the stimulation from the senses and allows you to really relax. You float effortlessly in a pool of body temperature water that’s super-saturated Epsom salt. The salt makes it almost impossible not to float. It lowers cortisol levels and has been shown effective in reducing blood pressure and boosting the feeling of well being. The magnesium in the Epsom salt can help muscles relax. It’s a perfect alternative for anyone under stress or who suffers from insomnia and far better than chemical alternatives that can become habit forming.
An infrared sauna can help you heal faster.
An infrared sauna uses the heat that is similar to that which comes from the sun, but without the dangerous UV rays. It boosts circulation, so it can help heal injuries faster by sending oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the damaged area, while warming the tissues and improving range of motion and flexibility. It boosts the immune system and encourages sweating that helps eliminate toxins. It even helps with the pain of arthritis.
- Alternatives to traditional medicine should be used to supplement medical treatment. If you use them to replace your present treatment, always consult your physician first.
- Many of these treatments are also good for improving your appearance. The infrared sauna and the cryochamber are exceptional for reducing the appearance of cellulite. Cryotherapy improves the skin.
- Consider halotherapy for relief from allergies, sinus conditions, eczema, acne, psoriasis, cystic fibrosis and COPD. It uses micronized salt in the air to help heal skin and breathing conditions.
- Meditation can help reduce stress and nothing boosts meditation like the Lucia N°03 Hypnagogic Light Machine that can advance a beginner quickly.
