Although oxygen is inherent to life, too much oxygen can become corrosive in the body, which can lead to free radical damage. A free radical is an atom, or an oxygen containing molecule, that has one or more unpaired electrons. When an atom is unpaired, it can be unstable and highly reactive. It can either donate an electron to, or accept an electron from other molecules. The unpaired atom will chemically interact with cell components such as DNA, protein or lipid and steal their electrons in order to become stabilized. This, in turn, destabilizes the cell component molecules which then seek and steal an electron from another molecule, therefore triggering a large chain of free radical reactions. To protect from Free radical damage, the body needs antioxidants, which are substances that can inhibit this oxidation effect. The body cannot manufacture these micronutrients so they must be supplied in the diet or supplementation, or through the NanoVi™.
Free radical damage can result from aging, exercise, poor diet, environmental toxins, pharmaceutical drugs and stress. This damage can disrupt redox signaling1,2, which is considered normal cellular communication. When this signal is disrupted, it can impair tissue repair, influence gene transcription, affect immunity and normal homeostasis. Free radical damage may cause a host of health problems and has been seen as a component of aging3,4 , Parkinson’s Disease5, diabetes6, cardiovascular disease7, cancer8, neurodegenerative disorders, liver function9, autoimmune disorders10, cataracts and vision health11, rheumatoid arthritis12, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Lyme Disease and other chronic conditions12. Needless to say, it is an important component to address in any health journey, whether that is managing a chronic condition, or maintaining good health.
NanoVi™ is specifically designed to help repair cells after the damage has already occurred. Using a specific electromagnetic wave that has precisely the same wavelength as the ‘good’ Reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced in cells, it works by triggering oxidative response. In this way, the body is stimulated to counteract oxidative stress damage caused by free radicals. This signal is initiating cellular repair in the same way that Redox Signaling works. The signal is transferred to humidity to increase efficacy and is breathed in by the patient.
Studies on the NanoVi™ technology show that it helps produce less lactic acid, generate more energy, reduce resting heart rate, improves immunity, encourages faster DNA repair, improves inflammatory response, creates a reduction in oxidative stress, promotes healthy aging, and contributes to fighting chronic conditions. NanoVi technology was tested to verify that it produces the exact “bio-identical” signal required13.
The NanoVi™ device is used at Ananta Health for those with chronic conditions like Lyme Disease, or other conditions with free radical damage and immune dysfunction. Using a nasal cannula, the mist or “humidity” is inhaled, and sessions are pain-free and done in a relaxed environment. For those with chronic illnesses, it is often recommended to have sessions up to three times a week for 30 minutes. There is no danger to over use, as it is a natural, bio-identical signal triggering natural responses in the body.
