Principles of Nuga
WHAT IS ACUPRESSURE
The Eastern art of acupressure evolved from acupuncture, an ancient art estimated to be about 6,000 to 12,000 years old. It is one of the oldest and yet most commonly used medical procedures in the world. It is based on the core principle that there is energy called Chi or Qi flowing through one's body and mind along pathways called Meridians.
When one's body is in balance, one is healthy. The overall well being requires that the individual's energy and spirit to flow freely throughout the body and mind. Theoretically, the blockage of Chi or Qi at any point may result in an illness. In order to restore health, traditional Eastern practitioners insert thin needles into the skin along the meridians to unblock the energy flow by stimulating the nervous system.
Acupressure is based on the same theory, with the exception that no needles are used, only focused pressure is applied. Eastern medical practitioners have mapped the human body with specific acupuncture points, many of which lie along and near the spine. There are 365 acupuncture points comprising the 12 primary Meridian pathways, crucial for the well being of one's health.
Nuga Best adopts the effect of acupuncture without the discomfort of inserting needles into the skin. Instead, pressure is applied, along with a combination far-infrared light and heat therapy, which function in similar ways but have proven to have much more effective results than by acupuncture or acupressure alone.
Acupressure can help with the following:
Relieves stress and tension.
Relaxes the mind and body.
Increases blood oxygenation and circulation.
Aids in the removal of toxic wastes.
Provides relief from head, neck and shoulder aches.
Stimulates speedy healing of injuries.
Increases energy levels.
Increases overall feeling of psychological and physical well-being.
Decreases labour pains.
Moxibustion, besides acupuncture, is an another important form of treatment in oriental medicine. As a well-known therapy within oriental medicine, moxibustion's purpose is to restore the circulation of energy and / or blood in the body. Traditionally performed by the burning of special herbs (mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris) at certain acupuncture points and thus helps to re-energise the body. These burnings can be done in different ways.
One of the ways is to place loose moxa herb in a moxabox and ignite it where the heat generated from the burning moxa is transferred to the large surface area of the box and onto the body.
The best way to use moxa is by burning it directly of the needle itself. The pressed moxa herb is put on the shaft of the inserted needle and ignited.
The heat is transferred in a different way to the moxabox: rather than transferring via the outer-layer of skin, the heat is transferred in a narrow channel through the needle and direct to the inner layers giving a very pleasant and effective method.
The nugabest's product components such as the jade ball and tourmanium ceramic implement the concept of moxibustions far infra-red heat transfer to stimulate the blood circulation and qi flow.
Massage therapy is widely known and go well beyond just simple enjoyment.
The benefits of a massage include: relaxation of the muscles and tendons, an increase in flexibility, reduces anxiety, reduces insomnia, balances the muscles, increases circulation and blood oxygenation, reduces pain, and many more.
Nuga Best automatically massages the muscles and tendons around the spine, relaxing the hardened nerve roots, relieving tension, and improving the flow of Chi.
Your central nervous system is the centre which controls and coordinates your body.
Your spinal cord is located within the spinal canal. Your spinal cord extends throughout the whole length of the spine, and your nerves branch off from the spine to every muscle and organ of your body.
Good health, in terms of your Chiropractor, is when your nervous system functions properly and is free from any interference caused by subluxations.
FAR INFRA-RED RAY
Infrared light is part of the sun's invisible spectrum. We can, however, feel this type of light, which we perceive as heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Our atmosphere has a "window" in which it filters infrared rays ranging between 7 to 14 microns to safely reach the earth's surface.
Our bodies radiate infrared energy in the 3-50 micron range, where the output is at 9.4 microns. Our palms emit infrared energy at 8-14 microns. Palm healing is a 3000 years old tradition in China and is based on the healing properties of these natural infrared rays. One of the characteristics of the Far-Infrared Ray (FIR) is how easily this light is able to penetrate through human tissue.
When this occurs a natural resonance is created, which has many beneficial properties. Dr. Toshiko Yamazaki, M.D., author of "The Science of Far-Infrared Therapies" reports that one of the reasons FIR has such beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is its ability to remove toxins, which happen to be the core of many health problems.
For example, when toxic gases such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide or toxic substances such as lead or mercury meet large water molecules, they are encapsulated by clusters of water in the body. When these toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired.
However, when a 7 to 14 micron FIR wave is applied, the water begins to vibrate breaking the ion bonds of the atoms held together by the water molecules. As the breakdown of the bond occurs the encapsulated gases and other toxic substances are released.
FIR therapy has been used for over thirty years to treat patients with various health problems and have exhibited positive results. These conditions include but are not limited to: TMJ, arthritis, high blood pressure, benign prostrate hypertrophy, high cholesterol, pain, hemorrhoids, cystitis, gastritis, asthma and bronchitis, sore throat, muscle tension, muscle spasms, adhesions on cold hands and feet, poor skin tone, acne, body odor, eczema and psoriasis.
FIR light therapy is considered to be harmless and can be found on the market today. Studies have shown that the patients have displayed minimal to almost no side effects and produced various positive results.
It does so by reducing the sensitivity of the neural pathways of the nervous system, triggering the body to release endorphins, natural morphine-like substances known to block and reduce pain.
The precious jade stone has been known to man for 7,000 years. Finally recognized for its exquisiteness, in 3000 BC the jade was considered the royal gem in China, where its worth is comparable to gold and diamonds here in the West.
The Mayans and Aztecs believed it to be the stone of magic that only Priests, Kings and Gods were worthy of wearing. In traditional Eastern medicine, the jade is believed to possess healing qualities by emitting a gentle steady energy that strengthens the lungs, heart, thymus, immune and nervous system, as well as increasing kidney filtration and blood detoxification.
The jade is a natural transmitter of far-infrared rays in the same wavelength as from the human body. It contains vital elements essential for the human body such as calcium and magnesium. The jade also produces negative ions which encourage the cells metabolism, which in turn increases one's vitality, strengthens one's immune defense and enhances endurance.
It is well known in the Orient for slowing down the process of aging as well as maximizing the body's ability to strengthen its natural defenses and healing abilities.
The health benefits of jade are also now becoming known in the West. In a study done performed in Germany, it was reported that the jade lowers high blood pressure and improves poor circulation. Mice fed with jade filtered water displayed a decrease in high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels as well as reflecting an increase in sperm count and regenerative functions
What is Tourmaline?
From all existing hard minerals on Earth is the only tourmaline which holds a permanent electrical potential, also known as polar crystal; also known as piezo-electricity.
Effect of tourmaline on the body include helping to rebuild the endocrine system and affect positively against diseases caused within the liver,autonomic nervous system, blood circulation and skin. Tourmaline support switching of oxygen in the blood, enhances the immune system, endocrine system and lymphatic system and assist the recovery from oncological diseases. Due to these characteristics, tourmaline been nicknamed the "wonderful doctor" for its positive effect on health.
What is a germanium?
The most prominent property of Germanium is its electrical property as a semiconductor that lies between Metals and Non-Metals. Since this property leads to a principle of healing human illnesses, it is often called an 'Element of Miracle.' Germanium has four electrons in its atomic structure that combine easily with other ions in human body and actively move between electric currents.
When Germanium comes into proximity with an abnormal element in a human body, one of the four electrons that is farthest from the Germanium atomic core pops out with negative polarity while the other three stay, to establish a balance with human body.
This property of Germanium provides a therapeutic principle which has been used over the centuries in the Oriental Medicine in the form of Acupuncture, Moxibustion, and Finger Pressuring that enhance flow of ions among cells.
What is a volcanic rock?
Volcanic rocks are in the form of very small crystalline structure and mineral particles because it is made from the swift cooling of magma.
The characteristics, chemical ingredients and mineral formation of a volcanic rock are very diverse, thus there are many types of volcanic rocks.The Nuga Medical uses basic and non-harmful alkaloids and does not use volcanic rocks that contain acidity or alkaloids harmful to the body.
What are elan rocks?
Named based on its looks, the elan rock is listed on the botanical list is listed as "impressive" and "perfect," and is good for swelling and epidermic diseases as it contains no poisonous materials. It is also known to be effective for age prevention, antibiotics, relieves fatigue and cancer prevention.
You may have felt body becoming more refreshed when you are in the forest or waterfall or near a hot spring. This is due to the negative electric charge from the air called the anion.
Anions promote the metabolism of cells and increases one's vitality, refreshes the blood, relieves fatigue, increases appetite and brings stability. Thus, it is even called the vitamin of oxygen.
The standard distribution of anion per 1cc of air in forests, hot springs, waterfalls and the beach varies from 800 to 2000 atoms.
The effects of anions on the activation of the human body
Blood purification effect
The healthy blood is a weak alkaloid. Positive ions turn the blood into sick alkaloids. Anions neutralize the acidic blood into a weak alkaloid. This prevents geriatric diseases, cancer, and many allergies.
Stabilizes the mind
Anions stimulate the parasympathetic nerves to calm the soul and the mind and activate the endorphin hormone which amplifies happiness.The beta-endorphin within the brain is nicknamed 'the happiness hormone' and functions to stabilize the mind. Thus gives the power to drive out diseases.
Controlling the autonomic nervous system
One person out of three will break down from stress and that is the hard reality of today. People suffer from insomnia, headaches, feeling of cold, climacterics, shoulder aches, lumbago and many other illnesses. These illnesses are said to be caused by positive ions. There is a problem in the nervous system. Anions work to restore balance in the nervous system (The nervous system takes over the control of organs and tissues within someone's body and there is the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous systems.)
Strengthens the immune system
The intestines and the liver are at the center of immunity. Modern men have weak intestines and liver. You can carry on a healthy life if you strengthen your intestines and liver. Change your life by making your intestines and your liver happy.
Strengthening your lungs
Many people are affected by colds or pneumonia these days. This can be explained by the presence of large amounts of positive ions in the lungs. This is often derived from the polluted air. The anions induce the discharge of carbon dioxide and increase the transfer of oxygen. You can recover from colds and pneumonia when your oxygen transfer increases.
On the cold and rainy days of low pressure, many people with arthritis complain of chronic rheumatic pain to the fingers, back, knees. This also can be explained from the air full of positive ions and with the introduction of negative ions to the body, the ions balance out inside your body easing the pain.
Activation of cells
The inside and outsides of a cell are full of ions, where positive ons are based around the outside and the anions on the inside. Both the positive and negative ions participate in the metabolism process. During this process, the positive ions replace the anions when a cell transfers from the suspension state to activation state. We call this state the depolarization and the anions lead this process. Thus meaning, the process of cell activation is carried out by anions.
