PSA* level drop from 8.9 to 1.4

“What are we doing for our future health?” Rob asked his wife some eighteen months ago.

He had survived testicular cancer some years earlier having undergone surgery and chemotherapy. He had a great life in the Hawkes Bay, a great business and he felt very blessed. He was in his late sixties and was noticing that his friends were becoming stricken with various illnesses.

“We had all the material comforts,” Rob confessed, “But it was apparent if we didn’t put some real emphasis on health – it would all be worthless. Having had one scare I was aware that I needed to protect my health. I wanted to live out the rest of my life happy and healthy.”

“I was reading an article in a magazine about the work of Health Evolution in Kapiti and I decided to get in touch. The article I read was about PEMF (pulsed electro-magnetic field therapy) and it sounded scientifically valid! It was natural, there were no drugs and I thought it was worth looking in to.”

Rob’s wife Louise was not quite so enthusiastic about all of her husbands passions! Rob loved new ideas, new adventures and new toys. When he decided to find some healing modalities to prolong his life, she was skeptical.

“I didn’t tell her about the PEMFs right away – I had a feeling that she wouldn’t be too thrilled I was spending more money. I have a lot of toys at home – some great cars and a mammoth motor home. Louise isn’t so inclined as I am to splash out and sometimes it gets me into trouble. However, I really believed that if you don’t have health, you don’t have much!”

So Rob contacted Health Evolution and rented a QRS system to use at home. It didn’t take long for him to see benefits and after slowly getting Louise used to the idea, he purchased the system. “I use it when I get home from work.” says Rob who owns a business in Havelock North. “I sit in a comfy chair and I give my back pain treatment while I’m relaxing. It is so simple and I’m discovering multiple benefits.”

Rob’s improved health increased his interest in other modalities so he visited Health Evolution in Kapiti and became inspired with the results achieved on clients using hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).

He tried the therapy a few times and was impressed with the difference that it made to how he felt. “My eyesight really improved! I could read small print and everything looked so much clearer!” He decided to purchase his own chamber and use it at home….

“It was going to be a lot harder to conceal from Louise than a QRS!” Laughed Rob, “…a chamber is a bit more difficult to hide under the bed!” Little did he know how important it would become in the year that followed.

After an extremely stressful year, a visit to the doctor revealed that his PSA* (Prostate Specific Antigen) levels had climbed to 8.9! Rob didn’t panic, he knew what to do, he got on his QRS home system more regularly and he used his chamber every day for six months.

He returned to the doctor and sat in the waiting room with everything crossed hoping that he had done enough. Stress had played a big part in his life over the proceeding twelve months and he was still working long hours and running a large business at the age of 69. His daily treatments using oxygen and PEMF had helped to lower his stress and get on top of his PSA levels… or so he hoped.

And what were those results? His PSA levels had dropped from 8.9 to 1.4! He was pleased to tell his wife that paying attention to his health had seen him escape the worst outcome and he would be around to annoy her a lot longer! He watches his stress levels, does his treatment, is careful to eat well and is confident about his future health.

Good on you Rob! Health Evolution salutes you!

*PSA levels under 4 are considered healthy in men, however this is age dependent.

What are Pulsed Electro-magnetic Fields (PEMF)?

All energy is electromagnetic in nature, and nothing happens in the body without an electro- magnetic exchange between cells. We are all familiar with ECG (electro-cardiograph) and EEG (electro-encephalograph) tests which measure the electromagnetic activity of the heart and brain, respectively. When electromagnetic activity ceases, your life ceases.

Electromagnetic energy controls your chemistry. Disruption of this energy in cells causes impaired cell metabolism, and if our cells are not healthy, our body is not healthy, in whole or in part. In short cell voltage or energy, is life.

How do PEMF’s work?

As we now understand, electromagnetic fields affects the behaviour of anything with charge in the vicinity of the field. Our bodies are electric-every heartbeat generates electromagnetic waves throughout the blood vessels, stimulating tissues at a cellular level. External electromagnetic fields and the normal electro-magnetic fields of the body interact. So, a magnetic field passing through our whole body will have an effect on each of our 70 trillion cells. As a result, magnetic fields act in basic and fundamental ways on the molecules and tissues. They affect the most basic functions of all cells-human, animal and plant included.

The Function of Cellular Exchange & Metabolism

Magnetic fields also affect the charge of the cells membrane, which allows the membrane channels to open. These channels are like doors and windows of a house. By opening cell channels, dietary nutrients are better able to enter the cell, and waste is more easily eliminated from the cell. This helps to rebalance and restore optimum cell function . If you restore enough cells, they will all work more efficiently. Cells of the same type come together to make tissue, and those tissues come together to make organs. So, by restoring or maintaining cellular function, you will, in turn, restore or maintain organ function, allowing the entire body to function better. We know that the body ages over time. Maintaining the function of every individual cell at an optimal level every day is an important part of slowing ageing and thwarting chronic illness.

What is mHBOT?

mHBOT is a specialised therapy that uses an increase in the atmospheric pressure to allow the body to incorporate more oxygen into the blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid and joint fluids at greater volume.

How does mHBOT work?

To understand mHBOT, a good analogy is a can of fizzy drink. The can is a pressurised vessel, in the can there is liquid, then add a gas. According to Henry’s law, gas under pressure will dissolve into the liquid. Hence the “fizzy” in the drink.

In the Hyperbaric chamber, as the pressure goes up, more oxygen is “pushed” into the fluids to boost oxygen levels. Supplementary oxygen can be added to the chamber via the use of an oxygen concentrator.

This oxygen will become infused into all the body’s fluids, blood, plasma and cerebral fluids. Red blood cells become saturated with oxygen and all remaining oxygen dissolves directly into other body fluids and tissue.

Why is oxygen so important?

Nature dictates that healing cannot take place without adequate oxygen levels in the body’s tissues. Cells and tissues without oxygen die, or become hypoxic. Hypoxia is a condition in which the body, or a region of the body, is deprived of oxygen. Hypoxia is a major factor in the development of stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer’s, dementia and cancer.

Oxygen has natural healing properties and increasing the amount circulating throughout the body promotes faster and more effective healing for a wide variety of diseases and illnesses. It also provides numerous preventative health benefits.
