Wellness in Lavender
While exploring my Lavender neighborhood, I chanced on a wellness center that uses a US$50,000 German-import, a Biological Cell Regulation machine that stimulates cell repair and regeneration to eliminate pain and restore health. When they said the machine regenerates cells, the first thing I thought of was regenerating brain cells! Recent findings conclude that brain cells do regenerate, contrary to what has been accepted before (that they do not). I'm not sure though if it can do that. When I told the owner I'm a yoga practitioner, she offered treatment to see how it works on a fit body. I didn't say no.
They asked me to lie down and then attached some wires from the machine to various parts of my body. After setting up the machine, they left me for about 30 minutes while the machine was activated. It felt like being on an EEG machine where electrodes are attached while the machine monitors and records its reading.
Pushing the Limits
After, they showed me the chart and read the diagnosis - normal. But here's the thing - I wasn't in pain and I wasn't sick. So how do I measure the machine's effectivity? I had an idea. I know my limits when I work out. So, how about I push myself to those limits? Will I feel an added strength to push it some more? That's what I did the following day - went to the park and went to my edge, doing yoga, abdominal strength training and rope skipping. I added pranayama (breath control exercise) and meditation for good measure. I did feel strong but not exactly Superman-strong.
restoring health...on workouts and on a Biological Cell Regulation machine
I returned the following day for another treatment to see if the charts would show any improvement. They were amazed at what they saw. According to them, they haven't seen such results from anyone before, even from people half my age. The 4 lines on the chart were all at the vertical middle - it means my body is at its optimum peak. Normally, one line or two would be at the middle while the other lines would either be on top or below, denoting illness, pain or imbalance.
Health and Fitness
The chart was a good validation of my current health status. With yoga, pranayama, meditation and my rope skipping, I could actually feel my strength. And it's not just strength - I also feel a heightened energy level that makes me want to devour life. I don't take any medication, no maintenance pill or even vitamins. I can't even remember the last time I saw a doctor.
The 'before' and 'after' chart shows an improvement. But what exactly did the machine do for me? How do I validate its health contribution from a performance perspective? At this point, I am not sure because I was already fit to begin with. And pushing my limits to feel the difference was not conclusive.
But given the way I look at things, if the machine regenerates cells, why wait until you get sick to avail of it? Health is not a measure of not being sick. Health should be a measure of vitality allowing you to enjoy what life has to offer. I would even consider this machine as a tool for preventive maintenance - an ounce of prevention always better than a pound of cure. The machine is not invasive, it doesn't insert needles or prescribe medication, and it claims to work at the cellular level.
Only one way to find out if it works for you.
