The cells, the energy producers of our body
To function well, our cells need energy. They obtain it thanks to the molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate). If our cells lack energy, they die. If they receive sufficient energy, they are (usually) healthy, which is reflected in our organs. Then, the proper functioning of each of our organs is necessary for our general health.
Effects on our cells
Our cells are renewed regularly. Each time, an identical copy of the predecessor is created, equipped with everything needed for a cell to live. This is a very delicate process and very susceptible to disturbances. Inadequate food, natural aging, stress and environmental influences make our cells struggle. Their ability to produce energy and regeneration decreases and they lose their vitality. In this sense, our cells are a direct reflection of our lifestyle. Thus, we ourselves are responsible for the health of our cells. The loss of energy can not only be perceived at the cellular level, but is also felt as a general loss of vital energy.
Increase the energy in our cells
Through mechanical vibrations, andullation generates electrical micro-currents, which enter our cells and activate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This process increases the amount of energy in our cells, which, in turn, has a positive effect on our organs and our overall health.
Thanks to andullation, the pain signals can be ‘repressed’. In the first instance, andullation creates positive signals in our body, which, as it were, repress the painful signals. As a result of this repression, the brain receives more and more positive signals, which ultimately results in a reduction of pain. Secondly, regular application of andullation releases endorphins. Endorphins are considered our ‘natural painkiller’. They further increase the effect of repression.
By the action of blood, our body is supplied with nutrients. When the blood circulation is insufficient, this process is disturbed, causing fatigue or illness. This is a determining factor for the health of our blood. The blood cells of a sick blood coagulate and dry up. As a result, they lose their vitality and carry less and less nutrients. Andullation reactivates the blood and releases the coagulated blood cells again. The blood becomes more liquid and the transport of necessary nutrients is restored. We feel healthier again and we enjoy greater vitality.
Through constant activity, muscular tensions settle in the body. As a result, the muscles are not nourished enough, and pains appear. By the infrared heat of the andullation, the blood vessels dilate, and thanks to the mechanical vibrations the muscles are better irrigated with blood. Nutrients are absorbed again and tensions dissolve. Many complaints are due to poor blood supply.
Stress has a detrimental effect on our nervous system. The human nervous system has two parts: a stimulating part (sympathetic) and a soothing part (parasympathetic). In stressful situations, the sympathetic system is over-activated. To restore equilibrium, andullation produces, through mechanical vibrations, positive signals which, so to speak, ‘relativize’ the negative signals of the sympathetic system. Thanks to infrared heat, vibrations can penetrate deeper into the tissues. This helps to relieve stress.
Lymph is a milky, slightly turbid body fluid that circulates in the lymphatic vessels. Lymph has a detoxifying function and plays an important role in tissue drainage (drainage = elimination of body fluids). In fact, the lymph eliminates superfluous tissue fluids through the lymphatic vessels and treats them as part of the metabolic process. These are mostly fats and proteins that, because of their volume, fail to enter the blood vessels through the capillary walls. After the blood circulation, the lymphatic system is the most important transport system of the human body. It is specially equipped for the transport of nutrients and waste, and it eliminates above all external pathogens. Therefore, andullation allows a better metabolism in the lymphatic system, as well as a more efficient immune system in that, thanks to the elimination of pathogens, diseases are prevented.
