Subtle factors like diet, minerals, emotions, allergies, and air pollution can separate Olympic-class competitors that are compared by inches and fractions of a second. For instance, sub-clinical dietary deficiencies may reduce endurance, affect sleep, cause muscle cramps, and impair performance and recovery in countless ways.The earliest signs of distress are exhibited by the body's bio-field, and only Electrophysiological Reactivity (EPR) testing is capable of this kind of subtle measurement. The INDIGO Biofeedback System measures the athlete's own reactions, using their own baselines as the control, rather than comparing them with a norm, though results correlate well with standard diagnostic tests when cases are more advanced. This way, each athlete's individual needs can be ascertained and corrected proactively.
The program also includes high-end 3D graphics intended to allow the athlete to visually interact with the program, which triggers a mind-body connection.
When athletes are healthy,
balanced, and have good stress management strategies, like EPR
biofeedback, then the probability for injury is decreased. By
monitoring the athlete for the earliest signs of distress, it easier
to identify and treat over-training, poor recovery, insomnia,
nutritional imbalance, or other factors that increase the chance of
injury. Of course, not all injuries can be prevented.
When an injury occurs, INDIGO Biofeedback bioresonance programs should be used in conjunction with standard medical interventions to dramatically accelerate healing and recovery.Results are surprising, especially when done frequently.
The excessive demands of
world-class training require quality rest and recovery. All current
EPR biofeedback athletes are impressed with the improved recovery
time they experience when using the device regularly. Quick recovery
translates into better training tolerance and improved contest
preparation (particularly between heats or events). During
high-volume training cycles and as athletes get closer to peaking,
they often struggle more with sleep, digestion, and rejuvenation.
As the body becomes more stressed, the autonomic nervous system gets stuck in a sympathetic-dominant state, which increases the likelihood of injury, infection, and emotional distraction.
One of the most intriguing
abilities of the INDIGO Biofeedback System is in providing insight
into mental and emotional states. With a skilled operator, very
specific emotional stress and historical information can be uncovered
with uncanny accuracy and effectiveness. Discussing relevant
emotional stress with athletes helps to validate their emotions and
helps them to consciously comprehend the impact that emotional
factors have on performance.All athletes have full lives, and
athletics are only a part. Their ability to deal with concerns about
family, peers and coaches, finances, relationships, competition
pressure and other events in their lives have profound impact on
This capability serves as a perfect complement for sport psychology and mental conditioning performed by the athletes' trained counselors and coaches.
