May is National Mental Health Awareness month. And in light of COVID-19, which has brought with it public health crisis, global economic upheaval, and widespread uncertainty, mental health is undeniably a topic of eminent prominence.
Stress triggered fight-or-flight response is not always a bad thing. It isn’t good when there’s too much stress and you are feeling amped up all the time. Stress-related problems can include digestive issues, insomnia, and a weakened immune system.
The human brain is a three-pound wonder that regulates everything we do. Given the centrality of the brain, its health is a priority. Studies in both animals and people have shown that stress can negatively affect brain functions like memory, mood, and sleep.
During these stressful, unprecedented times, how do we manage our brain health as we grapple with the new normal?
There are plenty of articles addressing this topic. A healthy diet, sleep, and adequate exercise have all be shown to be beneficial. And there is also the lesser mentioned, light.
The application of light energy to the brain is called photobiomodulation (PBM). The process transfers light energy to brain cells, triggering the natural alteration, or modulation, of neurophysiological activity to help reestablish normal neural balance. It also enhances brain cell energy metabolism, which translates to clearer, more focused thinking and a more balanced mood.
That is why we are excited to tell you about our first PBM clothing-form wearable designed to provide convenient, effective brain health care Anytime, Any-Wear!
We believe that to effectively take care of your brain health, we need to create clinically-validated solutions that can deliver care in a way that’s non-intrusive, comfortable and truly wearable. That is why we didn’t choose to design a miniaturized device but opted for clothing as our wearable form factor.
Clothing is universal and designed to fit the wearer’s natural physiology. The form factor also doesn’t carry the stigma that could be associated with conventional medical devices and provides numerous potential as a “wear” that fits into multiple lifestyles.
Start today and take charge of your brain health with our PBM-embedded wearable solution. Visit our Store.
