Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy or PEMF Therapy is one of the most exciting and useful discoveries in the history of complementary and alternative health-care. PEMF is a form of energy therapy that uses devices that emit pulsating electromagnetic fields. These electromagnetic vibrations are tuned at specific frequencies.
PEMF Therapy is more than 60 years old with thousands of peer-reviewed study’s proving both its safety and effectiveness. Because it is not a drug and not easily profited from, it has been swept under the rug and remains largely unknown, even to the most well known medical professionals.
PEMF Therapy can produce miraculous short and long term benefits both physiologically and neurologically for it’s user. Pulses are focused using specific frequencies that help fine-tune cells’ mitochondria. Improved mitochondrial efficiency results in enhanced cell energy, lower oxidative stress, more effective detoxification resulting in faster recovery time and more complete healing. This results in a rapid and lasting enhancement in the health and daytime performance of the user.
PEMF Benefits include:
PEMF therapy for arthritis is proven to alleviate pain and stimulate recovery. Almost every bone health issue such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, among many other orthopedic disorders are benefited with the use of regular Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy.
Several studies reported PEMF therapy improved cognitive functions and motor symptoms of PD. For example, the elderly PD patients with cognitive impairment perceive a part or parts of their body as disproportionately large, but after receiving PEMF therapy, the drawings of the PD patients show the reversal of macrosomatognosia with reduction of the right parietal lobe dysfunction.
In another research, PEMF therapy is applied to treat the stage 3 PD patients, resulting in a marked improvement in motor and non-motor symptoms such as mood swings, sleeplessness, pain, and cognitive dysfunctions.
PEMF therapy is also effective in improving visuospatial deficits in PD patients, as assessed by the clock-drawing test.
Moreover, PEMF therapy does improve PD-associated freezing, a symptom manifesting as a sudden attack of immobility that is usually experienced during walking.
Better Sleep: PEMF therapy for sleep re-tunes your brain for maximum efficiency. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy works for better sleep by a process known as brainwave entrainment. By stimulating the brain with a low frequency PEMF, the brain starts locking into the signal that mimics deep sleep state.
Faster Trauma Recovery
Mood Elevation: Whether depression or PTSD and other neurological disorders, PEMF offers a wide range of benefits.
All vital processes, particularly the metabolism of each single cell, are based on electromagnetic energy. The self-regulating and self-healing powers of the cell only function in an organism sufficiently supplied with energy. Modern Western lifestyles and pollution lead to a detrimental energy balance and impairment of the metabolism. The results are a decrease in vitality, degenerative processes, chronic diseases and a greater susceptibility to infectious agents.
By the application of specially designed electromagnetic impulses, called Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Frequency Therapy [PEMF], the cells can produce more energy and the metabolism is activated. Disturbed control systems function again, and the self-healing powers are supported. What's more, frequencies specific to each condition being treated are utilized to maximize the potential for success.
In fact, applying an electromagnetic field to the body can help almost any condition. The human body is created in such a way, that if it has a sufficient supply of energy, it can compensate for illness by self-regulation and self-healing. Each form of illness has, at its foundation, an energy deficit. Most of us suffer from lack of vitality, which is due largely to environmental and emotional stresses, overwork, pollution, poor nutrition or lack of exercise.
With Bio-Electra-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation [BEMER], you can now do something to correct this lack of energy within each cell in the body. The therapy is applied by means of a mat upon which you lie or sit, while a pulsed magnetic field envelops you. It is entirely painless and free of side effects. It originates in Germany, has been scientifically validated in many studies, and has won international acclaim for advances in Technology.
Thus with BEMER therapy, based on the natural laws of life, an optimum state of health can be regained.
HOW DOES BEMER THERAPY WORK?
All functions of the body are controlled by electromagnetic signals, much of which is generated by moving across the surface of the earth i.e. exercise. Motion promotes muscle growth, strengthens organs and the immune system: without motion the tissues suffer from insufficient levels of electromagnetic energy. Humans can survive without gravity but not without magnetism. Exercise also stimulates the circulation and thereby the oxygenation of our tissues. Insufficient oxygen in the cells is thought to be the root cause of most illnesses including cancer. BEMER not only increases the electro-magnetic energy of all the cells, it also improves the circulation and oxygenation of the tissues. This encourages each cell in the body to function optimally and to correct metabolic and energetic abnormalities, which result in freedom from disease. Thus the physiological effects of BEMER treatment are similar to the benefits of exercise.
[a] Bio-electromagnetic processes in the cells
The human body contains about 100 trillion cells, which are coordinated into a harmonious ensemble of tissues and organs. Every thought and nerve impulse, every communication by hormones depends on the optimum function of each cell and their intercommunication. If the cell is healthy, the organism is healthy.
In order to fulfil its functions the cell requires energy, which process requires a supply of oxygen and nutrients. 50% of the energy is used to convert ADP to ATP, and the other 50% is needed to maintain the cell membrane potential. This electrical charge around the healthy cell should be 70-90mV. In disease the membrane potential is found to be reduced to 30-40mV, and in cancer even as low as 15-20mV. At levels below 60mV the membrane structure becomes distorted, and below 10mV the cell dies. BEMER therapy has been shown to restore the membrane potential to normal.
The absorption of substances and the excretion of wastes are also controlled by electromagnetic energy, which, if deficient leads to poor function and ultimately cell damage. Enzymes, which are vital to metabolic processes, are activated and repair proteins are synthesised. Detoxification of cells is intensified and the immune system is stimulated.
[b] Bio-electromagnetic effects on blood and circulation
Dilation of blood vessels
Improvement of circulation especially the microcirculation
Increase in oxygen saturation and oxygen partial pressure [pO2] of arterial blood
Improvement in the flow properties of blood, and thereby reducing the risk of thrombosis.
The optimal pO2 of arterial blood is 96 mmHg. Due to lack of exercise most people have a much lower pO2 value; below 80 is a critical level. Each treatment with the BEMER increases the pO2 by 6-8 mmHg, but this only lasts for 4 hours. If the treatments are repeated this value gradually climbs until the optimal level is reached by 4-6 weeks. If treatment is stopped the level will gradually decline over several months, but this can be maintained by exercising. Your level can be estimated by measuring your resting pulse on waking.
Less than 50 b.p.m. = top fitness
60 b.p.m. = good oxygen supply
75 b.p.m. = “normal” for average population
Greater than 80 b.p.m. = cells are screaming for oxygen.
With a Dark Field Microscope this low pO2 can be seen by the formation of the red blood cells into rouleaux [like stacks of coins]. After treatment with facial oxygen or BEMER the cells separate, indicating a sufficient oxygen supply.
With Thermographic Photography it can be shown that the improvement in circulation starts in the head, then moves down to the torso and finally the limbs i.e. this is a central not a local action.
The magnetic field also acts on the autonomic nervous system to relax and dilate blood vessels. It also produces more Nitrogen Monoxide, which dilates the capillaries, but if the magnetic field used is too intense it will have the reverse effect. This also applies if the system is very acidic [as it would be if the person is unwell or unfit], so the treatment must start at a low level and gradually build up as the energy improves.
