Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do I Need Electro Lymphatic Drainage Therapy?

The lymphatic system works synergistically with the rest of the body. When it becomes congested with stagnant toxins, disease starts to happen and you start to feel negative symptoms. For instance, the lymph is directly correlated to the immune system, and a person might experience allergies because the immune system is compromised. When lymphatic stagnation occurs, sluggish lymph interferes with the ability of lymphatic fluid to carry toxins away from the cells and to transport healing oxygen, nutrients and hormones into the cellular tissue. When the lymphatic system cannot clear fluids efficiently, cellulite, weight gain and illness can occur. This stagnation weakens the immune system, compromising the integrity of the cell and encouraging inflammation, which is know to be the beginning of many common illnesses as well as premature aging. It has been well documented that lymph congestion underlies a host of autoimmune and inflammatory conditions from cellulite to cancer. Improving lymphatic circulation contributes to healthier cells, a more alkaline environment of the blood, a slowing of the aging process and reduction of pain and inflammation.

 

How Does The Lymphatic System Affect Cellulite?

Cellulite is most often a lymphatic condition. It is influenced by poor lymphatic circulation and excess acidity in the body. Dissipating stagnant lymph and increasing lymphatic circulation can reduce toxic fluid buildup and has been found to be one of the few techniques to be successfully used in the lasting reduction of cellulite. Lymphatic enhancement therapy is targeted to address the actual cause of the condition, unlike liposuction, creams and wraps which may reduce the appearance of cellulite temporally.

What Causes Lymphatic Stagnation?

The main cause of congested stagnant lymph is stress. Unlike the circulatory system, which is pumped by the heart, the lymph system has no pump. It relies solely on muscle movement and respiration, or breathing. Shallow breathing is an involuntary reaction to stress. Over time this decreased movement slows down lymphatic circulation and contributes to stagnation. Lack of exercise, pollution and wireless technologies also contribute to lymph congestion.

Electro Lymphatic Therapy VS. Manual Lymphatic Massage:

Electro lymphatic therapy is up to 10 times more effective at relieving edema and lymphatic congestion than manual lymphatic drainage. This reduces the time and complexity of the therapy dramatically. Manual lymph drainage does assist the body in increasing the flow of fluids by a gentle pumping and pushing motion. The distinction between manual and electro lymphatic therapy is significant. Electro lymphatic accomplishes two critical things that manual therapy does not. It breaks up blockages of bacteria and blood proteins that have congested in the nodes or filters of the body. It also converts the thick stagnant lymph fluid back to more of a thin watery consistency so it can flow more easily.

How Many Sessions Of Lymphatic Therapy Will I Need?

This varies with every person and every situation depending on their individual health issues.  It's a good idea to be consistent whether it's helping a chronic illness or preventative maintenance. Regular sessions are highly recommended, as results are accumulative and build upon one another.

Who Can Benefit From Electro Lymphatic Therapy?

Because the lymphatic system is involved with all the other systems of the body it is a safe and highly effective tool for those seeking prevention and self care. Lymphatic drainage is a time proven positive adjunct to any health, weight loss or detoxification regimen. Anyone can benefit from lymphatic therapy because it is a holistic approach that set’s the precondition for the body to heal itself by supporting the elimination of excess fluids and stored toxins.

How Can Lymphatic Cleansing Support Breast Health?

Electro lymphatic therapy can be a powerful adjunct as it relates to the health of the cell in the breast area. The proper filtering and functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to the body’s ability to clear stagnant fluids, filter toxins and deliver healing oxygen. Lymphatic drainage has been found to be beneficial in improving healthy flow of lymphatic fluids, promoting the prevention of conditions of the breast through normal functions of the axillary lymph nodes. Over 85% of lymph from the breast enters the axillary nodes found under the arm.

Why Use The IonCleanse Foot Detox?

The IonCleanse is the most comprehensive, noninvasive, full-body detoxification machine in the world. Some find it more effective and faster than any herbal or fasting protocol. The quality of the IonCleanse is far superior. It has a patented system that produces dual polarity, crating both negatively and positively charged ions. Dual polarity attaracts both positively and negatively charged ions, yielding a more thorough detox. The IonCleanse is the only system that uses a medical grade power supply and the only system that has both the FCC and CE safety approvals.

What Is The Chemistry Behind The Ionic Foot Bath?

Water exists as a chemically neutral molecule of two hydrogen atoms combined with one oxygen atom. However, water in its natural state also self-ionizes in small amounts all of the time, breaking apart into H+ and OH- ions and then recombining to the neutral H2O. When an array is placed in the water of a footbath and a direct current is passed through its poles, ionization is magnified many times. With the IonCleanse dual polarity array electrical flow alternates between the positive and negative poles of the array. When current flows to the positive pole, water breaks down into an abundance of OH- ions according to the formula: 4H2O + 4 e- (electrons) —> 2 H, + 4 OH-. When the current flows to the negative pole, water breaks down into an abundance of hydrogen ions according to the formula: 2H2O —> O2 + 4 H+ + 4e-. Negative ions attract positively charged atoms and molecules and positive ions attract negatively charged atoms and molecules.

 

How Often Can I do IonCleanse Foot Detox?

Generally speaking, the IonCleanse can typically be done twice a week. One 30 minute session will continue working in the body for up to 48 hours. It's important to be hydrated and drink plenty of fluids.

Is The Biofeedback Technology Doctor Approved?

Yes. Doctors were the first ones to use this technology decades ago. It’s still used worldwide today in their practices. The technology keeps improving all the time. Now it’s being used by other health practitioners such as acupuncturists, naturopaths, chiropractors and homeopaths, etc. The biofeedback technology allows the practitioner to quickly and simply assess a wide variety of health factors. No other device compares.

Do I Need To Prepare For Testing?

Yes. It’s very important to come to the appointment well hydrated with lots of water (at least 2 liters) the day of and the day before the session. Also get plenty of rest the night before. Please avoid hand lotions and wearing any fragrances/perfumes the day of appointment. 

Are Needles Used During Testing?

No needles, drugs or shots are used. It is an effective and non-invasive process. The testing is performed electrodermally and safe for all ages including children. 

What Type Of Conditions Does Biofeedback Help?

Fatigue, anxiety, depression, headaches, ADD, ADHD, trauma, addictions, stress, sleep troubles, pain, food intolerances, allergies, digestive issues, chemical sensitivities, insomnia, hormone imbalances, eyes, kidneys, eczema and many more. The list is endless.

What Can I Expect During The First Appointment?  

Your first appointment will be an hour long. To save on time, please have all your paperwork  completed prior to the appointment. The beginning of the consultation will be to hear from you and the main reason why you are seeking wellness. We will go over your forms and discuss your concerns. We will then do the appropriate comprehensive assessment including organ function and toxicity evaluation.  I’ll answer any questions you might have before you leave. You will leave with a homeopathic remedy tailor-made to you.

How Many Biofeedback Sessions Will I Need?

This varies from person to person depending on each situation and how the body is responding. A lot will also depend on how many issues we uncover and your symptoms. 

Can You Determine If My Supplements Are Benefitting Me?

Absolutely. We can check your supplements and vitamins to see if your body needs them, causing you stress or if they’re effective. With biofeedback, a practitioner can fine-tune a nutritional program specifically for the patient's needs. For instance, there may be 5 brands of Vitamin B. We can test for which one works best with the patient's biochemistry.

 

Can You Help Alleviate My Allergies?

Yes, we can help minimize symptoms caused by something that is stressing the body and bring it back to balance. Allergy studies show that computer technology similar to that used by biofeedback is highly compatible with food challenge tests and other allergy testing methods.

What Happens To A Person During A Biofeedback Session?

The patient holds a brass probe in one hand. The practitioner then touches specific points on the patient’s hands with a specialized probe tip in order to measure electrical resistance. The probe will not pierce the skin. The patient can't feel any current. These measurements give the base readings indicating where the weaknesses or stresses in the body are located.

Does Biofeedback Replace All Other Testing Methods?

No, it can't do it all. It is a very powerful tool, but it is no substitute for the practitioner's training, knowledge, and experience. It provides very complete and powerful information which can be combined with other types of testing.

How Can Biofeedback Help A Healthy Person?

The Biofeedback testing starts with an overall health assessment.  It can also detect underlying allergies and sensitivities or test to see if the vertebrae are out of alignment, pinching the nerve flow and altering health.  The idea behind this technology is that a person's health requires constant attention and care in order to be properly maintained. A person should not wait until they are sick to start worrying about their health.
