At The Remedy Room, we are continuously researching and testing the most promising, safe and effective natural ways to optimize quality of life. In a world where overstimulation and stress have become the norm, we are always looking for ways to calm the body and brain and restore the natural rhythms of the nervous system. These are the most promising options that have found their way into our stress relieving routine for good.
Far Infrared Sauna
Unlike the sauna or steam room at the gym or spa–far infrared saunas are one of the most effective methods of inducing a detoxifying sweat to carry toxins out of the body through your pores. The deep penetration of infrared heat does more than soothe sore muscles and ease accumulated tension–it breaks up and releases toxins from the fat layers just beneath the skin to be eliminated during perspiration. Many people don’t know that after moving through your organs, some toxins are stored in your fat cells, where they stay for long periods of time, wreaking havoc on a plethora of cellular processes. This is why it’s so important to use both exercise and far infrared heat to break apart and release those toxins. Deeply relax while detoxing at the same time? It’s hard to say no to that. Book your sauna session at the Remedy Room Metairie today.
We offer two forms of magnesium that can help reduce anxiety naturally. Our Remedy Room Migraine IV is full of magnesium to help you relax and is the most effective and fast acting way to get magnesium inside the cell. When vitamins and nutrients are given intravenously, we can deliver those compounds directly to the cells, skipping the GI tract where oral vitamins are often broken down in excess, causing them to be partially ineffective.
In addition to the Migraine IV, we also carry oral magnesium in a highly bioavailable, optimal powder form. This powder consists of multiple specific chelated forms of magnesium (threonate, glycinate and malate), meaning that the vitamin is broken down in the right form and associated with the right salts to carry it into the cells for maximum effect. This effect is of course to relax and soothe muscles. But don’t forget! The effects of magnesium go beyond sore, cramping muscles and charlie horses. Your blood vessels are made of smooth muscles, meaning when these vessels relax, blood pressure is naturally lowered causing an anti-anxiety effect. This is also why magnesium is so effective in regulating bowel movements and aiding in winding down for quality sleep.
Not all magnesium is the same! Most magnesium sold on the market, like magnesium oxide and magnesium citrate found in a popular product called Calm that everyone “loves”, is mixed with salts that don’t increase the intracellular (inside the cell) magnesium. These powders and pills are often less expensive, but do little more than flush the bowels!
The Alpha-Stim is a non-invasive FDA cleared medical device that provides fast, safe and effective treatment for anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain. If you come to The Remedy Room, chances are you’re always looking for the most natural, least invasive, most cutting edge solutions out there, which is why we’re so excited to have multiple Alpha-Stim devices available to use during your IV treatments or as a stand alone therapy. Using the Alpha-Stim is easy, takes about 20 minutes and the results are often immediate and can have a cumulative effect for lasting benefits. The device works by delivering a natural level of microcurrent (just millionths of an ampere) through little clips that attach to your earlobes. This microcurrent stimulates and modulates specific groups of nerve cells to increase alpha waves in the brain. The treatment is totally painless. Most people report feeling nothing at all during the session and only some report a slight vibration sensation on the ear lobes. Alpha waves are the brainwaves of our “rest and digest” or parasympathetic state of the nervous system, so an increase in alpha waves results in significant anxiety relief, mood normalization, and better sleep. Add an alpha-stim session to your next infusion or come in for a session on it’s own!
Let’s talk about the one thing that is rarely discussed and extremely important- a healthy and happy sex life. Regular oxytocin release (whether from orgasm or even just a hug!) has been proven to increase overall mood and sense of well being. But do we really need a study to tell us that healthy and satisfying intimacy (with ourselves and/or with others) contributes to feeling our best? Sex and intimacy can be a stress reliever and a mood enhancerall in one- but sadly a vast number of men and women silently struggle with difficulties achieving optimal pleasure.
As you know, at The Remedy Room, no conversation is off the table and we are committed to cutting edge natural solutions for the whole body. New technologies, such as the O-SHOT for women and P-SHOT for men are making it easier to achieve optimal pleasure, using your own body’s rich and robust PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and new nerve endings causing more blood flow and more sensation. For more information on either the O-Shot or P-Shot, give us a call.
Vitamin D is one of the most important things you can take to support your immune system and cardiovascular health, but the benefits go far beyond. Vitamin D promotes healthy bone formation and mineralization and plays a critical role in weight management and a healthy mood. The majority of the US population is deficient in vitamin D– and environmental toxins (including some sunscreens!) are further blocking our ability to convert vitamin D in our skin from the sun. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with numerous diseases and disorders, including cancer, multiple sclerosis, depression and more. If you’re looking to put yourself at ease knowing you’re doing what you can to prevent disease before it happens, you must add a high quality vitamin d3 supplement to your regimen now. The brands we recommend are free from unnecessary, problematic fillers and binders, and contain our preferred combination of D3 and K2. Remember to have your doctor check your vitamin D levels 2-3 months after beginning supplementation to ensure your dose is right for you.
GABA is our primary calming neurotransmitter in the brain and is important for checking and balancing our often over-stimulated system. Healthy GABA levels ensure quality sleep and feelings of calm. Progesterone is one of our most important hormones that creates GABA. As women age and approach menopause, many suffer from a lack of GABA due to decreases in progesterone and remaining unopposed estrogen levels. Additionally, many women who have undergone full or partial hysterectomies (removal of the uterus), are often told by their doctors that since they no longer have a uterus, they do not need progesterone. To this we remind you that rarely does a chemical compound have one and only one isolated purpose for existence in the human body, and as you’ve learned, in addition to its role in the female reproductive cycle, progesterone is essential for the production of GABA, which keeps us feeling calm. We offer GABA in cream and pill forms to keep your levels balanced and help relieve stress and anxiety.
Lying on the Amethyst Richway BioMat is one of our favorite ways to release stress both in the muscles and the mind. Based on Nobel prize-winning scientific research pioneered by NASA, the core of the Richway BioMat technology is a combination of far infrared heat rays, negative ions and the conductive properties of amethyst crystals. These three powerful health stimulators work together to ease muscles and improve overall circulation. The BioMat is FDA approved for temporary relief from minor spasms, minor sprains, minor strains, minor joint pain associated with arthritis, minor muscle pain and more. If you’re coming to The Remedy Room with stress, anxiety, muscle soreness or any type of pain, the BioMat is the perfect add on to your IV treatment.
Looking for the ultimate de-stressing self-care setup? Picture yourself laying on the Biomat, Alpha-Stim device turned on, magnesium IV in your arm, with our wonderful staff taking care of you. You deserve it.
