All vital processes, particularly the metabolism of each 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 in metabolic processes. 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 Field 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. 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 via 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-Electro-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, while a pulsed magnetic field envelops you. It is entirely painless and free of side effects. It originates in Germany and has been scientifically validated in many studies.
HOW DOES PEMF 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. PEMF 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 PEMF 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 fulfill its functions the cell requires energy. 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. When chronic disease is present, cell membrane potential is reduced to 30-40mV; cell voltages drop to as low as 15-20mV when cancer is present. At levels below 60mV the membrane structure becomes distorted, and below 10mV the cell dies. PEMF therapy has been shown to restore the cell membrane voltages to health levels. 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 synthesized. 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 PEMF 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 dark field microscopy this low pO2 can be seen by the formation of the red blood cells into rouleaux [like stacks of coins]. After treatment with PEMF the cells separate, indicating a sufficient oxygen supply. Thermographic photography shows that the improvement in circulation starts in the head, then moves down to the torso and finally the limbs. 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 is too intense it has the reverse effect. This also applies if the body 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.
