The following article was in my latest newsletter from Dr. Joseph Mercola:
After a search on ThisIsMS, I found there were several entries for this piece of equipment. This one seemed to be the most appropriate for Mercola's article. Fellow members may be interested in the information. "Jugular" cautioned that people with stents should not use this machine.
Dr. Mercola states that the PowerPlate helps to reduce visceral fat – I found this especially interesting because visceral fat (which can be present in thin, normal, or obese people – it is interior fat which is deposited around the organs) secretes cytokines (also called adipokines). These chemicals irritate or poison the liver. I believe these chemicals also stimulate the pancreas to produce excess insulin, which, as you all know, I suspect to be the key to MS.
Once again, just sharing.
