Harnessing the Power of Thermal Stress — Applications

In the theory post, we outlined how the application of reverse thermal stress, when executed with the right magnitude and duration, can help eliminate targeted stress, while at the same time provide hormetic effects, ultimately triggering favourable functional adaptations in the body.

Harnessing the Power of Thermal Stress – Theory

Throughout a long evolutionary history, nature has endowed us with a fine-tuned thermal-regulatory  mechanism. Despite its limitations, we still owe much of our survival to its automaticity (i.e., operates independently of volition) and plasticity.

Gauging Myopia Improvement — Snellen Chart and Beyond

Myopia rehabilitation won’t make much sense unless we can somehow keep track of our refractive status. Without any knowledge about how to gauge myopia improvement, any reasonable person will eventually want to give up. As with any other long-term project, the ability to track progresses can help us get on the right tracks, and provides the ultimate incentives to carry on with our effort. In what follows, we present: Continue reading Gauging Myopia Improvement — Snellen Chart and Beyond
