Introducing the BodyStat 1500 MDD

I am so excited to introduce a fabulous piece of modern hospital and research quality technology to the new clinic in Castletroy.

The BodyStat 1500 MDD

I did a lot of research comparing this system against the Tanita brand and although it cost me a LOT more than systems such as the Tanita ironman or Tanita SC-240MA which I was looking at, or more simple devices that have you stand and hold I couldn’t ignore that that these devices are not as accurate or reliable and an aim for my clinic (and myself personally) is honesty and integrity and gold standard when possible; hence my investment.

Dual frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysers (BIA) such as the BodyStat 1500 MDD have been shown in clinical settings to be reliable and comparable to the gold standard DEXA test (Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry now known as DXA) and a whole lot more practical (have you ever seen a DXA scanner!).

I am currently doing a lot of research into the applications of all the information for elite and professional athletes as well as us Joe soaps so I will have a more extensive blog up in the future; suffice to say it is exciting when knowledge is added to all the data provided by the test.

PEMF an intro….
iMRS 2000 pulsed wave electromagnetic field treatment system

PEMF an intro….

Hi folks,

I just wanted to add a short blog to provide you with further links to information about the superb PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic wave field) therapy device that I have been using for healing energy treatment with clients for the past number of years.

Not only do I have this superb device but I also added an integrated sound-light relaxation system to the device. This is called the iSLRS; to read more about this system please see here:

After seeing these devices at a top functional medicine seminar in San Diego in 2013 I set about doing further research and some saving as many of the units are $$$. I learnt along the way that this technology originates in Europe with many many years of research. And also most importantly that with these frequencies more is not specifically better; it is indeed a case of less is more. The ideal frequencies being those not generally felt during a session.

I was very impressed by the IMRS 2000 device and so have invested in this for all my patients to benefit from in the clinic.

The healing energies from this device assist the body in healing where imbalances are be they emotional, physiological, pathophysiological or pathological. The pulsed magnetic frequencies assist in the healing and restoration of balance in the various organs and tissues. How long this can take and how significant the healing depends on the extent of the cellular imbalance/ injury, the level to which you support the healing journey with nutrition and other strategies and the amount of committment that you can make to PEMF sessions.

Patients attending to see me; time and health permitting will get to enjoy a treatment as part of their appointment. Here is a photo of the bed in my clinic (on the right facing the window); wouldn’t you just love to fall asleep here! And also some photos of a client getting set up for a session. The finger device measures the heart rate (heart rate variability) and feeds back to the machine so that it can customise the frequencies of the treatment as it works through an 8 minute cycle according to the organ clocks and individual HRV according to feedback from finger monitor.

This device has many effects to mitigate the chronic and acute effects that stress has on the body read more here:

 

If you click the link here you can read more about this system which the company called iMORE – in short:

The iMRS Wellness system now includes the iMORE (Interactive MOnitoring and Regulation System). The iMORE uses Heart Rate Variability (HRV) as a bio- feedback loop to automatically adjust the intensity of the system. This is like putting the iMRS mat on autopilot, as it will intelligently adjust to what the user needs.

Over time, the iMORE technology (in combination with the iMRS applications) is able to train and improve your personal HRV by creating homeostasis in the body. HRV monitors the balance and ability of the Autonomic Nervous System to react to changes in the environment. It’s not a measure of heart rate, but rather the health of the central nervous system of the individual.

Spring Detox e-book

by Andrea Cullen

February 14th 2014

Hello all,

Spring is on the way! We have had some warm days here in Reno, although I see that at home Ireland is taking a battering from storms and high tides 🙁

How’s this for some contrast:

And a satellite from this past week of the wonderful power of Momma Nature as she shouts out across Ireland and the UK.

Here in Reno, Nevada where I am on a break writing and studying; the weather is such a contrast with very little rain if any. Here are some photos from my walk home yesterday across the wetlands.

So are you ready for Spring?

Need something to focus on that is positive while winter is still kicking ass? To prepare you to emerge from the cocoon of winter into spring?

We are excited to share this e-book with you!

From: Cara, Singapore 

A guide that reflects Andrea’s comprehensive knowledge and extensive research into the topic of gluten, the potential repercussions of intolerance, and how to begin healing and continue a healthy lifestyle. Her passion for her work is tangible in these pages.

I just read Andrea Cullen’s E-book and I can now say that it is the go to guide that I will use with clients. It’s practical and sympathetic to the challenges of gluten-free living while also dispelling many of the myths around this increasingly relevant topic. After 3 years of living “primal” I can say that removing gluten from the menu has been part of the process for me being the healthiest, strongest and happiest I’ve ever been.

Thanks to Andrea and of course Dr Thomas O’Bryan for their efforts in making this health issue known and providing a working solution. I have had several athletes eliminate gluten with amazing results. While not all athletes are gluten intolerant there are few who don’t notice becoming leaner and experience faster recovery when they eliminate gluten from their menu. This resource makes the process of educating athletes, clients and their families a much simpler one. Thanks again!
