As holistic healing becomes more mainstream, new products are hitting the market.
According to The American Journal of Medicine, 42% of Americans used some form of holistic healing in a 2010 survey and it’s only been gaining in popularity since.
While traditional holistic healing therapies like acupuncture, herbal supplements, and chiropractic care have also been gaining momentum again, technology companies have jumped on the bandwagon too. They're realizing that people want options to feel better that don’t involve taking drugs.
These technology companies have really started to deliver! Whether you’re looking to boost your immune system, lessen stress, or relieve pain, there are new products that are a great fit for you. Here are some of the latest and greatest.
At-Home Infrared Sauna
Most people have heard that applying heat can relax tense muscles. It’s one of the reasons saunas are so popular in spas and wellness centers. The heat causes your blood vessels to widen, which increases blood flow, causing muscles to relax. The relaxation makes the muscles more elastic, which allows the nerve endings to be stimulated to block pain.
Not only that, but a 2015 study concluded that regular sauna use significantly lowers the risk of cardiovascular and stroke related deaths. According to the study, those who used the sauna 4-7 times per week had the lowest death rates.
While daily trips to the sauna at a club could be time-consuming and costly, luckily there are affordable at-home options like an infrared sauna. There are many styles of portable home saunas on the market, including individual pods that look like pop-up tents and blanket saunas that look like sleeping bags.
These little patches appear to work like magic, but there’s really a whole bunch of complex science at work. Thanks to bio-frequency technology, which is derived from quantum physics, these patches work with your body’s natural energy field to bring your body back into a healthy balance.
BioActivate patches don’t contain any drugs or ingredients and are a completely holistic way to treat yourself. While learning quantum physics in a single blog post is impossible, a simple explanation comes from your grade-school science teacher.
Remember when your teacher told you that everything is made of energy? Well, that includes you! Scientists have figured out how to charge these patches in a specific way, so they interact with your body’s energy to create the desired effect.
Forest bathing came from Japan and is used for physical and mental health. It’s gaining traction in the U.S. forest-bathing. Basically, you’re out in the forest, and you’re breathing in certain chemicals or essential oils from the trees. There seems to be a very interesting immune benefit from being exposed to certain essential oils emitted from the trees in the forest. Forest bathing could potentially provide not only immune benefits but stress lowering benefits as well. It’s incredibly important to do what you can to strengthen your immune system.
