There really is nothing more fundamental to our health than water, so let me ask you this very simple question. How much actual water do you drink? I’ve just been told that my water requirement, given not too much exercise, normal environment, should be about 3 liters a day. That’s about thirteen and a half glasses. Given that, on average we spend eight hours each day asleep, that works out on average to about 1 glass of water every hour. I don’t know about you, but my intake’s not even close. Worse still, that’s just me. At 3 liters a day, my household of five should consume 105 liters, 28 gallons of water every week or 1442 gallons in a year. That’s a lot of water, so the next question clearly is where should I get it? [Read more…]

We were recently introduced to the DPL Therapy System. â€œDPLâ€ stands for â€œDeep Penetrating Lightâ€. The DPL is a FDA approved/cleared system with infrared and red LED lights used for pain treatment and skin rejuvenation. This review includes our impressions of the DPL from out of the box to real usage on a variety of skin and pain conditions. I also describe the technology behind the system.
LED Therapy Advances Through NASA Research
LED technology developed by NASA for plant growth experimentation indicated that this technology could be effective in promoting human tissue growth and wound healing. LEDs do not produce significant heat and were selected for their plant growth experiments in space. After the success of this application of LEDs, NASA looked to them for helping astronauts heal from injuries.
While in space, astronauts are subject to muscle and bone atrophy. Also, injures that happen in space will tend not to heal until the astronaut returns to Earth. NASA found that infrared light [Read more…]
