BODY BALANCE and the 6 factors that influence OUR WELL BEING
There is little we can do about our genes. But scientific studies are revealing that genetics play an important part in many physiological factors, for instance there are now a handful of genes that significantly contribute to longevity, such as Gene FOXO3A, which is a strong marker in centenarians. Fortunately there are many tests we can take that can reveal a predisposition to a condition and we can act accordingly. Over time we age and our chromosomes are responsible for this process. As chromosomes replicate themselves thousands of times a day they are susceptible to external sources of radiation and free radicals in our bodies that can lead to mutations.
Still very little is known about sleep, there are 4 kinds of sleep N1, N2, N3 and REM. Rapid Eye Movement occurs for about 20-30% of our sleep. Scientists are not entirely sure why but 2 sleep patterns of REM per night will give us an ideal night sleep. Sleep is linked closely to our Circadian Rhythms (our internal body clock which can be affected by travel and shift work) and the production of melatonin and adenosine. Two things have been proven, if you don’t sleep properly you will be physically and mentally worse off. There have been many studies on the benefits of negative ions on our sleep patterns; the exact reason for the results is still up for debate.
3: PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Aerobic exercise primarily involves the oxygen system of the body. Long distance running is an extreme Aerobic exercise. The body, is trained to breath well and carry oxygen to the muscles through the blood.
Examples of Anaerobic exercise are weight lifting, strength training or short sprints. The aim being to stimulate growth, power and speed.
Yoga or interval training, are good examples of activities that are balanced between aerobic and anaerobic.
Many athletes who endorse Body Balance have experienced increased physical stamina and reduced pain from existing injuries, check out our testimonials!
As defined on Wikipedia: Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes in living organisms. Biochemistry governs all living organisms and living processes. By controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism; biochemical processes give rise to the seemingly magical phenomenon of life. Examples of biochemical’s you may have heard of are testosterone, human growth hormone, insulin, estrogen, endomorphism, cortisol, GH and norepinephrine. There are probably thousands of biochemical’s in the body, each with their own function. Biochemical’s are measured milligrams, a tiny fluctuation invisible to the human eye can have profound effects on our body and mental health. Bio chemical activity is affected by the presence of free radicals; the best way to neutralize free radicals is by keeping your body in its optimum alkaline state and neutralizing them with negative ions.
Food is broadly categorized into 5 categories (not including water) protein, carbohydrates, fats/oils, minerals and vitamins. Fortunately the supply of food for energy is no longer an issue for many of us. Now the battle lies in consuming a healthy diet and avoiding the ever present supply of relatively cheap confectionaries that are full of simple sugars and transfats. Being exposed to negative ions and natural scalar frequencies is much like eating a healthy diet; it dramatically increases your chances of well being.
6: The X Factor
Each of the paragraphs above are tiny descriptions of very, very complicated subjects, they probably describe less than a millionth of what knowledge there is at present. To make matters even more complicated each factor above can be influenced by one or more of the others. For example what we eat can affect our biochemical activity, so simple sugars give us insulin spikes and eating protein can stimulate the release of Leptin, which can reduce appetite. Human Growth Hormone is primarily released when we sleep and endomorphines are released when we do exercise. Cortozol and norepinephrine are the "fight or flight hormones" that are released when we are stressed, this is not just a psychological state, some major changes take place in the body when these chemicals enter the blood stream. Anxiety and hypertension can manifest themselves if the body relentlessly releases these compounds. "Happy" compounds like Melanin is released when we are exposed to sunlight and you can get a burst of serotonin just by listening to a good song. Body balance products help aid your mood, can help control hormone levels and act much like an antidepressant.
THE GREAT UNKNOWN
There is still so much we can’t explain
- Why do people generally feel relaxed and calm when near a flowing water, is this because the sound is relaxing or because of the abundance of negative ions?
- Why have male sperm counts dropped so drastically since the 40’s?
- Is autism on the increase or are we just better at diagnosing the condition?
- Why does interaction with dolphins often leave people feeling happy?
- What is my physical and mental potential?
And the list goes on, one thing is for sure, in the last 100 years we are now exposed to more chemicals than ever before, in the food we eat, in the creams we put on our skin, in the air we breathe and in the drugs we are prescribed. The atmosphere now conducts millions of messages through satellites and mobile phones and we are relentlessly exposed to electromagnetic fields.
