Last Sunday, The Westchester Marriott hosted a wellness fair that spanned Healthcare Modalities, ranging from the hi-tech to what was cutting edged thousands of years ago and across cultures to American innovators making a place for themselves today and into tomorrow.
Among the latter would be Karen Beth, executive director of Biopro (www.mybiopro.com/kbeth). “Experts are predicting an epidemic,” she says of the real health risks of cell phone usage.
The brain sees the excess of microwaves being transmitted back and forth between cell tower and cell phone as an invader. In turn, cell membranes instinctively harden – thus
Intercellular communication breaks down in the short term and your brainwaves actually begin to change – possibly resulting in fatigue, stress and headaches. Over the long haul, red blood cells begin to clump and the immune system falters, pointing to a future epidemic in malignant brain tumors, according to experts such as CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
With consequences even more concerning among adolescents due to thinner, less developed skulls, Francehas actually outlawed cell phone use for children under the age of 12, according to Ms. Beth. On the other hand, in America, the telecommunications industry essentially regulates itself, she says, so Biopro is doing what it can to help us stay ahead of a possibly troubling future. A $35 patented and scientifically tested chip inserted into your phone, she says, “Neutralizes the effect of the harmful radiation that is naturally emitted from your phone.”
Sound doesn’t have to hurt, especially for clients of Beth Mullin of Metta Healing Touch (www.MettaHT.com) in Bethel and Carmel, New York. A member of the American Holistic Nurses association, she became a student and expanded her healing knowledge as a result of her own back pain.
Setting clients down on a table, seven Water Singing Tibetan Bowls are placed around the patient to correspond to each Chakra. Based on ailments such as insomnia, stress, anxiety, fatigue or pain, the water filled bowls are struck in a specific sequence that goes back 3000 years. Alluding to an almost carbonating effect the strike has on the water in the bowls, she says, “Healing happens on a cellular level since we are 90% water.
Not in the same neighborhood but from a very similar timeframe, Mona Vie Acai Blend uses the Acai berry, which ancient South American Indians used as an energizer. Maybe known or not to its earliest benefactors, Acai is rich in the anti-oxidents that help neutralize the effects of harmful free radicals, according to distributor Anne Avenius (www.TheGreatProduct.com/anne)
With an extra electron in the outer shell, free radicals raise cholesterol levels, incidence of cancer and wreak havoc on our bodies. Anti-oxidents like Acai and other fruits bond naturally to these radicals – thus ending their free reign on us. Mona Vie spikes its liquid drink, coming in three varieties, with various healthy supplements and equates its twice daily four ounce sips to 13 servings of fruit.
Bringing it back to the future to also make a difference now in women’s health is Suzanne Pyle MS, CCT of X to Rays (www.XtoRays.com). With offices in Bridgeport, East Windsor, New Canaan and Stamford,Connecticut and Brewster and Nyack, New York, doctors use and interpret Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging that well outpaces what mammograms can do. “We can detect cancerous activity eight years before mammograms can find a tumor,” she says.
DITI detects the early blood vessel growth that can signal the beginnings of a problem. Early on as anything else, for example, supplements then could turn the bad estrogen to good rather than developing into a malignancy. Of course, early detection can lead to a whole range of approaches to head off the problem.
Around since 1982, DITI didn’t catch on in hospitals and among the medical community because without initial standards or protocols to decipher the information, the technology came across in a bad light. Today X to Rays have doctors interpreting all the results, as Ms. Pyle hopes DITI can make a bigger dent into a mammogram entrenched healthcare infrastructure.
Dr. Anthony Sayegh began making his way into the same infrastructure as a premed student in college but that changed when he got into a car accident and went to a chiropractor. Quickly getting better, he realized, “The body can heal itself.”
Of course, from Holistic Healthcare of Westchester in White Plains (www.vitalitynow.us), he knows whether it’s Holistic, Western or Eastern in origin – no approach works for every individual or condition.
From this common sense belief, he became compelled to seek out a diverse array of knowledge and figure out the commonalities that were inherent to them. “The patient’s intention to get well,” he says is one that he found and like to focuses on.
In our American model, he says, it’s never addressed and decisions are based on fear rather than love and trust. So Acupuncture, Reiki or Something called Injury Recall, do you believe in the therapy and intend to get better or just get by.
In the end, The Gelb Center (www.gelbcenter.com) in White Plains could offer a simple mouth piece to solve a sophisticated sleep apnea problem, Spiritual Coach Renee Drummond (447-4147) helps remove the stumbling blocks that obstruct us from the magic of life and Five Corners Holistic Fitness (www.fchf.us) inScarsdale weaves the physical, mental and spiritual into a comprehensive workout plan. In other words, with even much more, the fair provided plenty get us all by and much better.
