MULTIPLE SLEROSIS (MS) 🦠 🧠 & WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY 🥶
.
.
doctors have been sending some of their patients with multiple sclerosis to us specifically for them to do cryotherapy. As health professionals, we wanted to know everything possible there is to know about MS and how our whole body cryotherapy can help them. Some patients have shown up with no visible outward signs of having MS while other patients clearly showed signs such as rapid, involuntary eye twitching/blinking, stuttered speech. By NO means is cryotherapy a cure for MS - it is simply a way to possibly help alleviate some of the symptoms- and as always, results vary from person to person.
.
.
MS is a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves.
In MS, resulting nerve damage disrupts communication between the brain and the body.
.
.
Multiple sclerosis causes many different symptoms, including vision loss, pain, fatigue, and impaired coordination. The symptoms, severity, and duration can vary from person to person. Some people may be symptom free most of their lives, while others can have severe chronic symptoms that never go away.
.
.
There is strong evidence that multiple sclerosis (MS) is characterized not only by immune mediated inflammatory reactions but also by neurodegenerative processes. ... Whole-body cryotherapy (WBCT) treatment may improve both survival and neurological outcome in MS patients.
.
.
Whole-Body Cryotherapy (WBC) has 4️⃣ properties that may make it an effective technique for the management of MS and its symptoms 🧠 🥶:

1️⃣WBC is known to fight oxidative stress. In a 2013 article in the journal Clinical and Developmental Immunology, researchers explained, “The inflammatory environment in demyelinating lesions leads to the generation of oxygen- and nitrogen-free radicals as well as proinflammatory cytokines which contribute to the development and progression of the disease. Inflammation can lead to oxidative stress and vice versa.”

2️⃣WBC is known to mobilize the immune system. A 2010 paper in the European Journal of Applied Physiology found that repeated sessions of WBC have a “mobilization effect” on the immune system in healthy people.

3️⃣WBC is known to reduce inflammation. A 2010 paper in Physical Therapy Reviews reviewed cryotherapy research in animal models and found “Cryotherapy can have an influence on key inflammatory events at a cellular and physiological level after an acute soft tissue injury.”

4️⃣WBC feels good. You don’t need research to demonstrate that stepping out of the cryo chamber buoys your spirit and your body. This is the result of a flood of endorphins throughout your body. It’s like a runner’s high, only without the running. It’s an effective way to relieve pain and it’s a mood enhancer.

why we will be better than ever when this is over⁉️⁉️⁉️ BECAUSE OF OUR PEOPLE ❤️ 👊🏼

we have built our community since Day 1 and we go above and beyond to make sure people know that we are so much more than a “local business” and that our clients are not just “customers” but closer to us than some of our own families.

We will always take care of our people. we will always know who bought a shirt or a gift card to support us, who bought a workout plan, who messaged us to check in on us, who kept their billing going knowing we would let them use their services at a later date. THOSE are the people who were with us before and those will be the people who are with us after. BIGGER - BETTER - STRONGER. together. Let’s gooooo 💥

practicing what we preach 👊🏼 staying active is so easy sometimes.. and then literally the hardest thing ever. how we feel about exercise is like being on a never-ending roller coaster of emotions 🎢 one day we are like 🦁 and next day we are like 🐱

we are super thankful we have awesome clients who care about our health just as much as we care about theirs. every week, we get to go on a bike ride with some of our most valuable customers / people on this 🌎. .

this isn’t just regular bike riding like when you’re a kid 🚴🏼‍♀️ this is like hardcore gravel biking 🚵‍♀️ we aren’t saying go steal a kids bike and hit the trails- but try to do something you haven’t done since you were a kid or something that actually makes you feel accomplished [and happy and proud of yourself]. .

this is perfect time to surround yourself with those people who push you and challenge you to go outside your comfort zone.

if we have all learned one thing throughout this - it’s that HEALTH - is in fact - WEALTH 🧬 = 💰 .

🇺🇸 currency = dollar. 🇧🇷 currency = real. 🇬🇧 currency = pound. 🇹🇭 currency = baht. 🇨🇳 currency = yuan. WHAT IS THE CURRENCY FOR HEALTH ⁉️

our money might be different than your money but one thing is for sure: none of us can BUY our health. Yes, money can buy possible preventions and treatments etc but NOTHING is guaranteed ❌ .

in times like this, we should be looking at our lifestyle choices that have been made up to this point. how are you going to be “wealthier” once this is over❓❓❓

a lot of our health services deal with the lymphatic system. This got us thinking 💭 do most people even know what the lymphatic system is or what it does? You hear the terms “lymphatic drainage” or “lymphatic massage” thrown around a lot but we want to make sure our clients know exactly what it is before they sign up for a service that deals with lymphatic health 🧬🦠🧫
.
.
The lymphatic system, or lymphoid system, is a part of the circulatory system AND the immune system. It is made up of a large network of lymphatic vessels, lymphatic or lymphoid organs, and lymphoid tissues. [the spleen is the biggest organ in the lymphatic system 🤓]The vessels carry a clear fluid called lymph towards the heart.
The lymph fluid carries the waste products and destroyed bacteria back into the bloodstream. The liver or kidneys then remove these from the blood. The body passes them out with other body waste, through bowel movements (💩) or pee.
.
.
Unlike blood 🩸, which flows throughout the body in a continue loop 🔄, lymph flows in only one direction ⬆️ — upward toward the neck. [lymphatic massage & lymphatic drainage peeps know to push everything 🆙] Lymphatic vessels connect to two subclavian veins, which are located on either sides of the neck near the collarbones, and the fluid re-enters the circulatory system ♻️
.
.
Your body's lymphatic system is part of your immune system, which protects you against infection and disease . The lymphatic system includes your spleen, thymus, lymph nodes and lymph channels, as well as your tonsils and adenoids.

‼️ HOW TO CHECK FOR A TORN ACHILLES ‼️

‼️HOW TO CHECK FOR A TORN ACHILLES ‼️

the first thing we do is gather data (what were they doing to cause this, what sound did they hear if any, what sensation, what level of pain, description of their signs / symptoms). 🤕

It’s important to KNOW YOUR ANATOMY ‼️Achilles is a tendon. Gastrocnemius is a muscle. Soleus is a muscle. Know the difference of a tendon tear vs muscle tear ‼️

Simmonds' test (also called the Thompson test or Simmonds-Thompson test) is used in lower limb examination to test for the rupture of the Achilles tendon. The patient lies face down with feet hanging off the edge of the bed. If the test is positive, there is no movement of the foot (normally plantarflexion) on squeezing the corresponding calf, signifying likely rupture of the Achilles tendon.

luckily this test was NEGATIVE 👎🏼 for a torn Achilles.

Under Armour 1/4 zips...Nike hoodies...long sleeves... short sleeves. we finally received our order and despite it being pretty delayed (among all the other things we have endured over the last few weeks)- we are super happy with the outcome. they are available now or we can even ship it to you if you want (little bit extra cost).

every penny we make goes directly back into the business. thank you in advance to whomever supports us.

a couple of days ago, we received a message that Chad & Ellen, owners of @thecoderschoolashburn 🧠 💻 , had purchased a gift card on our website with a note that said, “hang in there. Keep up the awesome work”. — here’s the thing- we have NEVER even met Chad & Ellen. We were so grateful that we wanted to put up a post and say something nice about them, their generosity to donate a gift card to us (without ever meeting us in person but only following us on social media). We drove over to take a photo in front of their building (so we could create this post as a sign of our appreciation). .

we figured no one would be there but when we saw someone inside we were like oops this could get awkward. we went to introduce ourselves and luckily it was Ellen, who was there doing some admin work. We finally got a chance to meet her and thank her in person (Chad- you’re next). .

social media has shown the ugliest sides of people lately and to know that two fellow business owners who could easily be jealous, greedy, [insert all the negative words here] at a time like this - reached into their own pockets to help us. seriously, how awesome of them. .

thank you @thecoderschoolashburn from the bottom of our hearts ♥️ . we want to remind everyone that it’s not about the monetary amount, it’s about the gesture. If you have something to offer, and it doesn’t even need to be money, you should consider offering it to someone in need. Even a few nice words can go a long way. We look forward to reciprocating their generosity and hope this POSITIVE story inspired you.

People have worked too hard to let their fitness gains & their physiques turn to mush during this Covid 19 lockdown. Our once private, customized fitness plans are now available for anyone to purchase.

Due to demand, we will be offering a pricing tier system starting at $99. Whatever plan you choose comes with a ONE TIME FEE and you only pay again if you want to change your plan.

HERE IS HOW OUR PLAN IS DIFFERENT ‼️ instead of a “one size fits all” program that most people offer, you will submit a photo or video of all YOUR equipment to us, and we will customize either a 2x week, 3x week or 5x week workout plan for you based off of the equipment that you actually have access to. Yes, this might entail a phone call or FaceTime to go over your goals/injuries— but it will have SUCH A HIGHER RATE OF ADHERENCE + ACCOUNTABILITY.

your plan will include video demonstrations, voice over on how to do the exercise properly, 24/7 access to our staff, modifications (progressions & regressions) to any exercises. To purchase, contact us directly 703-944-2626 and there will be a purchase option on our website no later than Monday 4/6.

With the recent threat of COVID-19, a respiratory illness, I wanted to share some data on vitamin D and general respiratory illnesses. I shared this data a couple of years ago when it was first published but it seems very relevant to remind people during a time when they will be spending more time indoors since they may not be making as much vitamin D3 in their skin from sun exposure.

Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that controls the activity of close to 5% of the protein-encoding human genome. Many vitamin D-regulated genes are involved in immune function. A meta-analysis of 25 randomized controlled trials found conducted in 14 countries found that vitamin D supplementation cut the risk of infection with respiratory illnesses by 50% in people that were vitamin D deficient and by 10% in people with normal vitamin D levels.

According to the endocrine society, blood levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D below 20ng/ml is considered deficient, less than 30ng/ml is inadequate. Individuals with levels between 30-60ng/ml are considered adequate. Meta-analyses have shown that people with serum levels between 40-60ng/ml have the lowest all-cause mortality. Studies have shown that typically supplementation with 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 per day can raise serum levels by ~5 ng/ml.

With this COVID-19 illness, older people are disproportionately impacted. While I want to be clear that I am not suggesting some magic cure for COVID-19 (please be aware), it is a fact that is beyond reproach that vitamin D status is an immune-impacting factor that strongly declines with age that is easily remediable with supplementation. This is an issue with older people because it’s generally thought that a 70-year-old is almost 75% less efficient at producing vitamin D from the same dose of sunlight as their former 20-year-old-selves.

Moral of the story ⁉️ Take vitamin D supplements, especially if you are aging and especially if you are limited on sunlight exposure ‼️

#currentsituation is SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST... and we mean that in every way possible: physically 💪🏽 mentally 💭 emotionally 🧘🏽‍♂️

as clichê as it sounds, this too shall pass and when it does- you gotta keep f*cking going. you don’t just get to give up on life. worse things have happened before and worse things will happen again.

we need to be positive and strong and show all the good vibes for ourselves, our staff, our clients (and even those who don’t even know us).

Darwin’s Theory of Evolution by natural selection is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits. Changes that allow an organism to better adapt to its environment will help it survive. 🦍➡️ 🧍🏻‍♂️🧍🏽‍♀️🧍🏾‍♂️🧍🏻‍♀️

Now, more than ever, the world will see who can adapt and survive. maybe you’re physically fit but struggle mentally. maybe you are super strong mentally but physically have a terrible immune system. Maybe emotionally you are falling to pieces but you have never gotten sick in your life. All we know is that we will continue to be positive and uplifting in a world that is uncertain and ever evolving because we know we can adapt with it and hope you can too 🌎 🙏🏼

we are just going to assume that whoever called the Health Department to try to report us and sent the Loudoun County Sherriff’s Office to our business this morning had our best interest in mind 🤷🏼‍♀️🙄

what did the sheriff’s say to us? That we are absolutely allowed to be open, that they were very impressed with our bio’s on our website, that they need to try our services one day and that they were very sorry that someone even tried to report a business that is legally allowed to be open. They also gave us a print out of the Governors Executive Order to put on our desk for any people who come in with questions or need clarification. once again, thank you to those who truly support and understand what we do here, especially during times like this.
