Cell Wellbeing - Epigenetic Testing

Epigenetics is the study of the everyday influences in diet, environment and lifestyle affect how genes express. 
In some cases, up to 98% of gene expression (the way the body is physically, mentally and emotionally) is controlled by the environment.

To a large degree yes, genes have the ability to express in a number of ways, sometimes thousands of ways for the same gene. By changing the environment, you can find the best gene expression to support wellness.

No, not necessarily as we are not physically measuring the amount of the nutrient to compare with deficiency tables. These could be within normal levels by conventional measure but still require more of a certain nutrient because of a lifestyle factor, like exercise or stress for example. The reports are based on relevancy.

The system is not a measurement as it does not have a scale by which data can be compared. Through the process of resonance, we determine the relevancy of an item by the ability of the system to detect resonance within the digital sample and reflect this in the size of the chart segment.

When two systems have frequencies which are comparable they come into resonance. When the opera singer hits a note which resonates with the glass, it is able to absorb the energy from that note, until so much is stored, that the glass shatters.

Only within the context of the chart that it is in. As a chart can only add up to 100% of the total picture for that category, you cannot compare a chart with 3 categories with one that has 17.

Those segments with outlines are designated as ‘consider’ items, which still have moderate relevance but are not priority issues.

No, we are not physically assessing immune response to the foods and they are not on the allergy spectrum. If there are foods to which you know or suspect your clients are allergic, then you should avoid these even if they are not on the restrictions list.

There are some foods to which we have limited genetic experience, we often have natural aversions to these. 
There are others which we eat too much of because we are creatures of habit and from time to time certain foods are just not compatible with our lifestyles. These foods are best restricted for a 90-day period.

The system does not physically measure toxins in the body and so cannot be used to confirm their presence. 
The resonance can be epigenetic in nature meaning that the toxins could cause some poor gene expression if exposure does occur.

The report does not confirm the presence of parasites (although we all carry them) but only the resonance indication that could be a predisposition to parasites and eating the right foods may help with this.

When you change your diet, environment and lifestyle, it takes time for the body to react physically. After 90-days your body has gone through a reasonable support cycle and can be effectively checked again.

At a pure epigenetic level the body is homeodynamic, which means constantly adapting to the environment in a non-linear way. As we age, changes jobs, eat differently, get married, have kids, read a different paper, start exercising, stop exercising and hundreds upon hundreds of different daily/weekly/monthly changes, so our bodies need supporting in different ways.

That’s impossible to say as there are so many variables and each person and set of circumstances is unique. You should notice change within the first 30 days but it can take up to 90 days and even beyond in some cases.

Not in the short term as the epigenetic information that is mapped reflects the underlying energy status of the body which never adopts the same state twice. It is homeodynamic in nature and not homeostatic. Over time patterns of epigenetic tendencies can be seen in the reports and you get to know factors need addressing in the long run.

The Formostar - Weight loss Management

The customer is wrapped for 50 minutes, with around 10 minute machine warm-up.

There are six high-density silicone treatment pads providing several wrapping options. For most women, the silicone pads are wrapped around the thighs, hips, abdomen, and arms. For men, the usual configuration is thighs, abdomen, chest, and shoulders. If the shoulders don't need much toning up, the calves can be wrapped instead. The heat to each of the silicone pads is individually controlled therefore the level can be set according to the client's comfort level.

The answer greatly depends on the physiological make-up of each individual. Generally, the greater the excess weight being carried, the faster and more dramatic the reshaping results will be. Some people will not experience significant weight loss at all but will see improved body shaping, losing inches or dress sizes. Extremely physically fit people that don't carry excess weight or inches can experience much improved muscle tone. Obviously, the more physically active a person is, the greater the benefits that can be achieved from Formostar. Common sense dictates that if a client is on a Formostar program and then eats or drinks excessively most of the results will be negated. Ideally, Formostar will be of most value with a balanced exercise and eating program. Clients that lead a very sedentary lifestyle can still achieve great results over a longer period assuming that they exercise adequate control over dietary and other general health factors. Experience worldwide indicates that the rule of thumb is one clothes size reduction in 6 to 10 sessions with 2 to 3 days between each session. However, as previously indicated, results will be dependent on each persons particular make up and physiology.

Far infrared energy is a part of the natural light spectrum minus the UV element. The Formostar Far Infrared Body Wrap has been designed to output energy in the 5.6 to 25 micron infrared ray band also peaking around the 9.4 micron level to achieve maximum effectiveness. When Far infrared energy penetrates through the skin it transforms from light energy to heat energy and elevates the temperature of the subcutaneous layers. The body's absorption of this energy simulates a workout, burning up to 900 to 1400 calories in a 60 minute session providing body shaping and detoxification.

This will depend on a person’s lifestyle. If a person is very physically active undertaking significant walking, jogging, working out, or competitive sports, then Formostar treatments can be as often as every 2 days. For best results it is preferable right before a workout as this will help burn the most dramatic amount of calories and also has maximum impact on body definition. With relatively physically inactive people, a minimum of 3 days between sessions is recommended. More regular sessions are unnecessary and may actually be detrimental to results. Upon reaching the intended body shape, it is possible to revert to maintenance only schedule, which for most people, should be around 2 to 4 times a month.

Both the Formostar and a tanning bed give off infrared heat therefore it is possible to receive a burn or heat rash if both sessions are undertaken on the same day. It is not recommended, especially if the client is fair skinned and prone to burning. Tanning the previous or the next day should be perfectly fine.

Virtually everyone from all walks of life can gain benefit from a Formostar Far Infrared program. However, sessions should not be undertaken unless clients have received their Doctor’s advice where any of the following conditions exist: Over activity of the thyroid gland, cardiac infarction, cardiac weakness, constriction of the coronary blood vessels, marked high or low blood pressure, diabetes requiring insulin treatment, disturbances to the function of the kidneys and associated organs, fever, severe general infection, contact allergies, skin diseases, open wounds, newly acquired shingles, pregnancy, prescribed medicines causing increased sensitivity to physical stimulation (for example antibiotics), cases of severe varicose veins. As always, if any doubt exists, it is recommended that clients seek their doctor’s or health practitioner’s advice.

It is recommended that drinking room temperature water before, during and after a session allows the body to stay hydrated and replaces body fluids that have been sweated out during the session.

Of course any diet and lifestyle improvement will be of benefit whether or not people decide to undertake a Formostar program. However, if a client has made the commitment to the Formostar program then more value will be derived from that commitment if other lifestyle improvements are also undertaken.

Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.

The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns; 0.76‾1.5 microns-near;1.5‾5.6 microns-middle;5.6‾1000 microns-far infrared. Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform.
