Whether you have pain that just won’t budge or you want to enhance your immune health system, these patches can be used with or without PEMF therapy. I’m a believer… Of both.
Try them out! Lifewave x39 patches.
Activate your stem cells with Patented phototherapy that is designed to elevate a peptide known to enhance stem cell activity.
Backed by over 10 years of research and development, as well as many clinical studies, X39® has been shown to provide an abundance of health benefits related to:
To further understand the technology of the patches, we must understand a biological principle, namely that our body is as much electromagnetic as it is chemical. The patches are activated by a combination of body heat and the presence of the body’s electromagnetic aura.
These patches are made of amino acids and sugars and arranged molecular (nanotechnology) to become a sort of radio transmitter… sending magnetic signals that instruct the body’s cells to complete a certain function.
However In order for these mechanisms (to be able to respond to light), the cells of our bodies have what are called “photoreceptors”. The pharmaceutical model works with some type of drug or nutrient to produce a chemical response. Our cells can take in photons of light and produce chemical changes in the presence of different frequencies of light to be used for healing.
Get started now with these health enhancement patches. They compliment any other modalities you have in your anti-aging and health tool kit.
Well, let me begin by welcoming you to my hip journey. I think we all can agree that we are first told we need a hip replacement (or two) – everything starts moving in slow motion and we leave our bodies. I was told I was too young and lingered in pain for two years and until I could no longer walk without a cane. I began to keep a journal and wrote in it daily as I hibernated from the outside world. The journal became a WordPress blog and a place for me to release my emotions as rapidly as they came up. Three years and two hip replacements later, I began rebuilding my life. I, like many, had complications which triggered me even more into googling, connecting, writing and remembering to breathe. Breathe. Breathe. S L O W down.
No matter how you applaud yourself (or if you even do after everything you’ve been through)…we applaud you… as you have now become a proud member of the Hipster Club… a community of bionic men and woman around the globe.
No one understands bone-on-bone pain or the landscape of the unknown until they face the challenges of a reduced quality of life and the fear of surgery. And, until you have sources of information, support and the knowledge that experience brings…it can be a scary process… Especially to go through or face alone.
For example, I would never have known, if I didn’t receive some good tips from a fellow hipster, to ask for anti-nausea pills in the hospital (caused by the pain medication). I wouldn’t have known what special devices to get (my grabber was incredible), or to hook myself up with a buddy to go on walks with or bring me food or take care of my pet in the early days after my hip replacements.
That’s why I created Hipster Club!
So, I welcome you to the land of becoming bionic and I thank you for finding your way here to The Hipster Club.
Look through the site and find resources, research, emotional support and the newest technologies to strengthen your body and begin your healing journey.
Thanks for finding The Hipster Club….if you got here – You or someone you know, are, or are soon to be, TOO hip. We are a community of hipsters initiated by pain.
No one knows bone-on-bone pain until you have experienced it…woken up in the middle of the night with excruciating no-cartilage pain when turning over…locked and jolted when standing up after sitting for a while…that limp that causes people to do a double-take on your gait. We could go on and on…
Soon, the operation day arrives side by side with your fear of the unknown. Your fear of pain, pain medication and the what-ifs of surgery wakes up before you do. The ‘fat lady has sung’, we bit the bullet and soon we, like magic, wonder why we ever waited so long.
We are here to support, educate, inspire and transform our hipster status, by becoming and remaining our own advocates. And this includes helping others…so, all I ask is to pay it forward.
Beyond Doctor’s Orders
Succeeding with a chronic illness involves more than just following doctor’s orders. If you’re willing to work at it, these five habits will ensure you live successfully with arthritis:
1. Learn all you can.
Knowledge is power. Read everything you can, and locate trusted sources of news and information (online or offline); find out where exercise classes are being held in your community; and ask lots of questions – of your doctor, your physical therapist and other health-care providers.
2. Pay attention to your emotions.
Living with a chronic condition such as arthritis ups your chance of developing depression. Warning signs include constant tiredness, lack of appetite, trouble making decisions, disrupted sleep and feeling worthless. To head off depression, develop a network of family and friends who raise your spirits and can help you keep active.
3. Make your doctor your partner in care.
You’re more likely to find success if you and your physician make informed decisions together. Make sure your doctor spends time with you discussing treatment options and answering all your questions. Talk about ways to improve your functioning, such as losing weight, becoming more active or reducing stress. Don’t be embarrassed to talk to your physician about anything, including admitting when you haven’t followed her advice. Agree to disagree when the two of you have different opinions – and keep talking about it.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
Arthritis involves the breakdown of cartilage. Cartilage normally protects the joint, allowing for smooth movement. Cartilage also absorbs shock when pressure is placed on the joint, like when you walk. Without the usual amount of cartilage, the bones rub together, causing pain, swelling (inflammation), and stiffness.
You may have joint inflammation for a variety of reasons, including:
