What if it were possible to increase the level of collagen in your physiology by way of a bio-field energy treatment? A bio-field energy treatment is where a specifically trained individual sends specific intentions to a recipient energetically and they absorb and digest the impact of these intentions into their physiology.
If this idea appeals to you, then read on, because there is scientific data supporting the transfer of collagen directly into human bone cells via LifeForce energy transmissions. Results from a scientific study done last year indicate boosts in the level of collagen to be in excess of 600%.
This transmission happened long distance too, in fact, it happened halfway across the globe. The transmission was instantaneous and the targeted cells were allowed to incubate for a period of forty-eight hours before the results were measured. Given the intelligence displayed by the energy, we believe this energy source has the potential to be more bio-available for the receiver to assimilate into their physiology, too.
Recent advances in understanding normal bone structure and function have revolutionized the nutritional approach to optimizing bone health. Researchers are now discovering the vital importance of collagen for achieving optimal bone tensile strength.
Most people will be very surprised to know that collagen, a resilient type of protein molecule, makes up most of the structure of bone1. The spongy matrix of collagen fibers and crystalline salts within bone is crucial to absorbing compression forces to resist stress fractures2, much as the tensile supports of steel bridges provide flexibility so that the bridge can withstand gale force winds and heavy traffic.
Amazingly, the compressional strength of bone is even greater than that of reinforced concrete3. Many fractures, however, result from twisting or torsional forces, and neither bone nor concrete has a very high degree of torsional strength. However, the dynamic collagen matrix within healthy bone allows it to better redistribute and deflect a variety of forces, thereby reducing fracture risk.
Like suspension cables on a bridge that sway to absorb forces that might otherwise disrupt the main structure, collagen fibrils within bone are made up of strings of alternating collagen molecules and hydroxyapatite crystals that are connected by weak chemical bonds within the strings and between them4.
Force applied to collagen fibrils in bone causes some of these weak bonds to break. This is actually a beneficial action because by allowing stretching within the collagen matrix to spread the pressure over a broader area, the result is a protective effect on stronger bonds within the collagen molecule itself1,4. Without both collagen and minerals, bone becomes brittle and can be easily fractured, much as a bridge with a missing cable could snap under the weight of one too many cars.
Surprise, surprise! The most abundant protein found in your body is collagen, which plays a vital role in providing support and elasticity to connective tissue, such as cartilage, bones, tendons and ligaments. Collagen also provides structural support to the skin, so your skin looks young, supple and wrinkle-free.
Cartilage is a firm, rubbery material that covers the end of bones in joints. Over time, cartilage wear off due to ageing and repeated movement. As a result, tendons and ligaments stretch, and bones rub against each other, causing pain. Collagen provides support for the growth and repair of cartilage tissue, as well as relieve joint inflammation and pain. Boost collagen intake for your body, so you can sustain an active lifestyle and achieve your fitness goals.
Type II collagen is primarily found in joints, which are areas of the body more prone to wear and tear. When it comes to choosing a joint supplement, look for one that contains collagen as a key active ingredient to support joint comfort, flexibility and mobility. This is especially beneficial if you experience joint discomfort and pain, are a sports enthusiast, or suffer from arthritis.
Proven effective in supporting and protecting your joint health, collagen looks to be a promising and safe alternative to the common joint supplements out there.

While collagen is most frequently mentioned in the beauty industry, its benefits are beyond skin deep:
There is no shortage of products and procedures claiming to be the magic elixir for beautiful, youthful skin, luxurious hair, and beautiful long, strong nails. For the most part, there is next to no research backing up those claims, with the exception of collagen. Collagen has been shown in clinical studies to improve skin elasticity, moisture, and retention. In others, collagen has been found to help regrow hair and improve the rate of skin wound healing.
Your intestinal tract can become stressed from any of the following: psychological stress; physical stress; side effects of certain medications; bacterial and/or fungal infections; exposure to dietary allergens; and/or ingestion of toxins. This stress can cause the tissue in your intestinal tract to become damaged, inflamed and irritated- and when paired with unhealthy microflora- creates a condition called leaky gut syndrome. This is where toxins, pathogens, and other matter pass through the intestinal tract and make their way into the bloodstream and then other tissues in the body. Studies have found that people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) have decreased blood serum concentrations of collagen. Supplementation of collagen and consumption of collagen from foods helps soothe, seal and repair the intestinal tract.
The production of collagen requires vitamin C and the amino acids proline and lysine. However, so does the production of arterial plaque! If the body is using vitamin C, proline and lysine to make collagen in the body, it decreases the amount available to create plaque. In this way, supporting healthy collagen production helps support cardiovascular health. Additionally, collagen gives blood vessels their elasticity and thus a decrease in collagen would lead to hardening of the arteries. (All the more reason to give the body what it needs for healthy collagen production.)
Collagen is essentially the glue that holds our tissues together. Increasing collagen in tissue not only helps create a healthier structure for the tissue itself but in the case of muscle, it increases muscle mass. Muscle, especially skeletal muscle, burns more calories than any other tissue in the body. An increase in muscle mass increases the rate of metabolism to support the tissue. Healthy, increased collagen production means a healthy increase in muscle mass and thus an increase in metabolism.
Collagen is beneficial for joints as it concentrates where they meet and where the connective tissue binds together. Oral supplementation of collagen has been found to be absorbed in the intestinal tract and incorporated into cartilage tissue in the joints. In a small study focusing on individuals with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), collagen supplementation was found to significantly reduce swelling and pain in joints. In fact, 4 of the 60 participants experienced remission of their condition during the 3-month study, hinting that collagen supplementation may be an effective supplement for individuals with RA.
Let’s take a closer look at the link between collagen and your bones. It’s most commonly known that collagen keeps our skin elastic and plump looking, but its benefits go much deeper than that– bone-deep, in fact. Collagen is actually found everywhere in our bodies: our muscles, bones, and skin cells. It’s the most abundant protein in our bodies.
Your bones are made of protein and minerals, and 90% of bone matrix proteins are made of collagen. In fact, the combination of calcium and collagen is responsible for giving our bones strength and flexibility, which helps minimize stress dissolving your bones.
Here’s the frustrating thing though – as we age, our ability to produce collagen diminishes.
This is where the bio-field energy treatments come in. These collagen treatments have significantly improved the bone health parameters and could be a powerful alternative nutraceutical supplement to combat deficiency and fight against various bone related problems.
