PEMF THERAPY: Chicken Soup for the Body's Electric Soul
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- It may be surprising to learn that just as household appliances require electricity to operate; the body too works by electricity! Science has shown that life depends upon electrical energy, called bioelectricity, to thrive. Anatomically speaking, from macrocosm to microcosm, the human body is organized into a collection of organs, tissues, cells, molecules, and ultimately atoms.
Nerve and muscle cells generate their own voltage spikes and thus are self excitable. All cells work like household batteries, in that they possess a milli-voltage called a membrane potential; produced by the tension created between the concentration gradient of intracellular verses extracellular electrolytes (charged atoms or ions). In fact, cells even produce a current that is dependent on the electro-motive nature of charged atoms and polar molecules. Electro-diagnostic tests for the heart (ECG), brain (EEG), skeletal muscle (EMG) and peripheral nerve (NCV) are commonly used to ascertain their state of health. NO electrical activity or flat-lined EEG/ECG signifies death! Read full article at www.fortlauderdaleconnex.com

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- How we carry ourselves has much to do with how we feel. Good posture or alignment begins with the foundation of the body - the feet. For many people pain anywhere up the skeletal chain can begin from the ground up, thus giving new meaning to the expression "feet first".
The feet do an incredible amount of work carrying us around. In your lifetime, your feet will take over 100 million steps with each step making an impact on the entire body. Have you considered that the pain you may be experiencing in your foot, ankle, knee, hip, low back, or neck maybe caused or aggravated by the abnormal effects of faulty foot alignment or function on the entire body?
