Off Topic: Vascular Therapy

This post directly relates to three keen interests of mine: endurance/hard-core cycling, overall health and well-being, and recovery from my severe concussion, for which effects still linger and I expect will do so for some months, even though I feel normal most of the time now.

For many years now, I’ve writen in my cycling blog about my view that cycling preserves youth and health in various ways, a theory of mine now proven specifically with cyclists.

To be photographers and to live well, we have to be healthy, because without health little else matters. So while this post is ostensibly “off topic”, it is actually very much on topic for anyone who wants to be out and about making images, particularly me (landscape photography with rigorous hikes).

My working theory as to why cycling (or similar exercise) is beneficial has been twofold: (1) it increases blood flow throughout the body, flushing out toxins and delivering oxygent and nutrients to all tissues of the body, and (2) it increases muscle tone and strength and quantity, and reduces body fat, particularly visceral fat. Not to mention endorphins, which is why after 200 miles I can feel great., as with the first two double centuries this year.

Exciting new vascular therapy

Very recently I ordered a class 1 medical device (no prescription needed, class 2a in Europe) that provides vascular therapy by greatly increasing blood flow in the smallest capillaries in the body. This increased flow supports the body’s own healing processes for anything that can benefit from increased blood flow. Medically proven in double-blind studies and with many case study papers, it is no gimmick, and it hugely outperforms devices operating on a “similar” technology, as proven in testing against 5 other devices.

My interest started out very simply: a personal one in treating myself. However, readers of my cycling blog know that the interest goes beyond personal, as per the hundreds of health-related posts in my cycling blog.

Regardless of whether it is prevention, regeneration, healing and recovery processes, improving the effectiveness of medication, preventing unnatural aging processes or increasing physical or mental performance—all of these body processes are directly related to the effectiveness of microcirculation.

Thus any activity or device that improves microcirculation in effect is a turbo boost to the body’s own mechanisms—not a cure, not a solution in itself, but an acceleration of internal physiological processes. Sedentary or injured people or anyone unable to exercise regularly and vigorously should find it particularly intriguing. Athletes like myself should find it highly beneficial in clearing out lactic acid and similar waste byproducts after a hard workout, as well as repairing overused muscle tissue. There are many other potential benefits, but I am not allowed to make such claims, only to refer to proven studies and such. Thus the generalizations. But consider that any kind of tissue repair requires a healthy blood flow; consider the diabetic amputee, the Olympic or casual athlete, the wound that won’t heal.

Getting a demo / getting one

It is my view that this device can improve the quality of life, considerably so for some people. In this regard it is compelling to me: improving my own health and well-being and that of others is a mission to be proud of. It is/was my original founding principle for founding this web site: helping myself by helping others. Different areas, same principle.

Why don’t I name this device? Well, I like this device so much that I have become an independent reseller of it, so I want the sale—I benefit if you buy one via a commission and/or if you yourself become an independent reseller. Put simply, I want (and need) to make money, and I hugely prefer to make it by helping people in some way. That’s why this site still exists after a decade—it does both.

If you are in the bay area and would like a personal demo, contact me. If you are not in the San Francisco bay area, we could talk on the phone. My time is valuable, so serious interest only please.
