14 Seconds To Lower Back Pain Relief – What NASA Learned

NASA LogoImagine having relief from your back pain…right now! Research from NASA tells us how the VacuPractor allows you to do it here on earth.

It would take you more than 14 seconds to walk to your medicine cabinet. And longer still before the pain pills start to give you any relief of your lower back pain.

But when you take advantage of this unique therapy, that has no side effects, you will experience lower back pain relief faster and safer than virtually any drug on the planet…simply by harnessing the gentle power of gravity and decompressing your lumbar spine.

Discover why thousands of people a day use decompression therapy to relieve their back pain and sciatica. You’ll see how you can uses decompression at home to improve your health, fitness and even rolls back the clock on aging to end your lower back pain

The Curse, and the Cure both use GRAVITY

The Curse of gravity, and how the VacuPractor harnesses the power of this force of nature to reverse this curse is what makes the VacuPractor so special.

Do you ever feel like the whole world is on your shoulders? Well in a way, you are right it is. We all suffer the harmful effects of gravity pushing down on us every day.

I know that sounds a little strange, but here is the science.  The same force that holds the moon in orbit and controls the ocean tides also pulls our bodies downward – placing every muscle, bone, ligament, and joint in your body under constant stress and strain.

By far, the part of the body affected most by gravity is your spine. Why? Because the spine is standing almost straight up, opposing gravity. Between every pair of vertebrae in our spine is that spongy, soft protective disc made of over 70% water. These discs give our spine flexibility and provide the cushioning that is essential for daily activities like sitting, standing and walking. Not to mention that fun stuff like biking, playing golf and chasing the kids.

Every day, all day gravity pulls your vertebrae downward, squeezing those spinal discs ever tighter. Your discs thin out as this compression forces the fluid out of them. During a typical day, you can lose as much as 3/4 of an inch in height from spinal compression. [Ref1]

You’ve probably noticed the effects of this yourself… do you feel taller in the morning then at night? Do you adjust the rearview mirror up in the morning then back down later in the day, is it because your spine has compressed?

But guess what happens when you remove the constant downward pull of gravity from your spine?

Skylab LogoNASA Findings

Astronauts on extended early space missions like Skylab and the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project found they grew as much as 2 inches taller after a week in zero gravity. [Ref2]

But it didn’t occur immediately upon entering the weightlessness of space. According to the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project post-mission medical report [REF3], the astronauts only noted a half inch of height gain during the first few days. This was attributed to a loss of spinal curvature after removing the load of gravity. But after a week in zero gravity, they rapidly gained new height. Lost fluids were reabsorbed into their spinal discs leaving them fully hydrated – restoring the astronauts’ true natural height.

Every night when we sleep we undergo a similar transformation. Much of the compressible weight of gravity is removed from our spine. Fluid is slowly absorbed back into our spinal discs and similar to the astronauts we regain some of our lost height as our spinal discs recover while we rest.

What to Do – if you can’t go to the Moon?

Using the VacuPractor – for 5 to 15 minutes, acts like 8 hours of sleep. In that using gravity and your body weight and suction to pull, not push we can decompress the spine and change the concentration gradient and hyper hydrate the discs thus reversing spinal compression, and eliminating lower back pain so you get similar benefits of zero gravity.

The VacuPractor is not a substitute for good sleep, and one of the big reasons we need eight hours of sleep each night is to re-hydrate our spine. Also, we don’t get the benefit of zero gravity to take the entire load off our spine. At best we only experience about a 75% reduction in spinal compression when we sleep. [Ref 4]

This means each night our spinal discs can recover most of their lost fluid… but there’s still a gradually accumulating deficit thanks to the slight compression that’s present even while we sleep. With regular use of the VacuPractor, we can correct this.

Over the course of a lifetime you could shrink up to two or more inches of lost height. [Ref 5]

shock-absorberAs your shock absorbers shrink, (your discs) there is less distance between your vertebrae. What does this mean? It can result in nerve root pressure – leading to back pain, neck pain and sciatica. Enough downward pressure and you make a slight twist the wrong way and a herniated disc, or a pinched nerve could result. Also, let’s mention the far more common, muscle-based back pain which is far more common than nerve-based back pain. Everyday muscle strains, poor posture and muscle imbalances caused by everything from sitting, to golf, to running or lifting the grand kids become major contributors to back pain.

Use the VacuPractor to HEAL Yourself

Your body was made to naturally heal itself. Increased blood flow brings in oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood through your arteries and removes waste through your veins and lymphatic system.

So, until we all can take a rocket to outer space, we invented the VacuPractor to help you offset the negative effects of gravity. VacuPractor turned gravity from the problem to the solution!

In short, reversing the negative effects of gravity, and you will HEAL Your Back Pain!

Decompressing the lumbar spine and reversing gravity to improve your health is the principle behind the VacuPractor. You can reverse the harmful effects of spinal compression simply by reversing the direction gravity pulls on your body, decompressing your spine daily, or anytime you need relief.
