The usual feelings of work- or school-related anxiety may be elevated due to COVID-19, making learning, creativity and productivity more difficult. By optimizing physical health and supplying the body with defensive tools it needs to fend off infection, a healthier mental state will follow. Tried-and-true methods for living well, such as a vegetable-rich diet, exercise and meditation are helpful, but research shows that these habits are just one piece of a larger puzzle. Each person’s needs, challenges and goals are unique, and STANDwellness has stepped away from a one-size-fits-all approach to health.
Located in Water Mill, STANDwellness offers a fleet of services designed to boost immunity, calm the mind, and lower risk factors for chronic disease. Epigenetics, the study of activation and deactivation of genes, can be used as an instruction manual for nutrition and lifestyle practices. Using testing from DNAlife, STAND determines the presence of gene variations known to have a significant effect on health and susceptibility to conditions like osteoporosis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Using these results, nutritional deficits can be pinpointed and mitigated using customized wellness tool-kit and dietary guidelines.
This new DNA-informed lifestyle can be blended with STAND’s other energy-boosting treatments. PEMF, or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, uses high-intensity, short-duration electromagnetic pulses of energy that safely penetrate the body to stimulate better cell function, addressing common ailments like fibromyalgia, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease and acute injuries such as bone fractures, sprains and inflammation. To combat fatigue caused by poor diet, toxin exposure and aging, inhaled hydrogen (H2) therapy can be used to raise the body’s pH levels, reducing oxygenated stress. For COVID-19 prevention on the go, STANDwellness has also introduced the “Back To Life” kit, a package of organic, essential oil-based, antimicrobial mask wash, hand sanitizer, Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray, and sugar-free vitamin C, zinc and probiotic lozenges.
