Believe it or not, our environment can affect our health and well-being massively. We believe that the way to well-being is by integrating nature’s wisdom with best-in-class technology. Our Red Light Therapy panels replicate the benefits from the sun. Our PEMF Therapy emulates the grounding frequency of earth’s core.
Light is essential for our health and well-being. There are many studies that show how increased hours of sunlight increases the brain’s production of serotonin, a mood-enhancing hormone. The more sunlight we are exposed to, the more serotonin we produce. Ensuring that we receive adequate levels at the appropriate times of day benefits our alertness, mood, productivity, sleep pattern and many aspects of our physiology.
Natural light has a lot of health benefits, but it can be hard to get enough of it, especially if you spend most of your day indoors. When we spend a lot of time exposed to artificial light, our levels of melatonin decrease, causing a disruption to our circadian rhythm, our ability to sleep malfunctions and our blood pressure to deregulate. Living with a circadian rhythm disruption, increases our risk of developing illnesses and disorders such as diabetes and depression.
If you are currently experiencing depression or mood swings, changing your light exposure can be the solution to your problem. For instance, if you are spending too much time indoors and not getting enough natural light, red light therapy can help you increase your light exposure, and prompt biological responses that will make you feel more energetic and alert.
At Expand Health, our panels deliver red light at 600nm (which is readily absorbed by surface tissues and cells, leading to enhanced skin health and healing) and 850nm (which is near infrared (NIR) light and is invisible to the human eye, and penetrates deeper tissues, leading to enhanced recovery and inflammation support). During your sessions, you will simply stand or sit in front of our whole-body system, allowing the red light to be absorbed by your skin. Just relax…use this time to reflect in peaceful solace and harmony.
The earth’s surface has a virtually limitless supply of mobile electrons that gives the ground we walk on (as well as lakes and oceans) a natural negative electric charge. When your body is in direct contact with the ground, it dissipates static electricity and extraneous environmental electrical charges that accumulate in you. At the same time, you receive a charge of energy in the form of free electrons and your body synchronizes with the natural frequencies of the earth. This is called being grounded.
Walking barefoot on grass, sand or soil has been proven to increase antioxidants, reduce inflammation and pain, reduce stress levels, improve sleep and improve circulation of the blood. Other studies have shown that it can rewire the brain in significant and positive ways. Research has also shown that earthing can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. More holistically, earthing is about synchronising with the earth’s natural energies, which in modern society we tend to forget about.
What if you can’t get outside barefoot as much as you’d like? If you don’t live near nature, or it’s too cold to go outside, consider PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy. PEMF technology seeks to mimic the resonant frequencies we’d naturally get from the earth through grounding to help recharge our cellular batteries.
PEMF sends electromagnetic waves through your body to help promote your body’s own recovery process. Unlike the harmful electromagnetic waves found in devices like X-ray machines and microwaves, PEMF waves are delivered in small bursts at a low frequency, mimicking the same kind of electromagnetic waves you’d find in nature. The longer you use it – both over time and during your PEMF session – the more you will feel the long-term benefits.
