What exactly does Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy do? Through the increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields help cells increase their energy (or "charge") by up to 500%. Extensive research in Europe has shown that very specific pulsing of a magnetic field can open capillary flow, thus restoring blood supply at the micro-circulation level.
There are several instruments that do this, but we recommend BEMER (Bio Electro Magnetic Energy Regulation). BEMER is today a globally operating company with hundreds of employees and over a million users around the world. In fact, the BEMER is a FDA certified Class II medical device in the United States. This means that many doctors are prescribing its use as treatment for patients, 8 minutes twice a day.
The BEMER and similar PEMF devices are particularly relavant today in terms of their effect at the microcirculation level. Of the 45,000 diseases today, 80% are due to problems with microcirculation. Studies show that BEMER specifically improves blood flow after two minutes, allowing nutrients to be better transferred from blood plasma to tissue via capillaries, and bio-rhythmically defining blood flow for higher oxygeneration.
With better microcirculation comes better wound healing, and can relieve migraines, arthritis, kidney impairment, insomnia, depression, and even cancer over time (as cancer cannot survive in a well-oxygenated environment). Note the overlap in the four general groupings of PTSD symptoms: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, or changes in emotional reactions.
So in addition to promoting healing of any physical wounds of returing soldiers, there is also hope for mental trauma, as the BEMER has shown promise in treating the negative feelings about oneself inability to experience positive emotions, emotional numbness, lack of interest in activities previously enjoyed, hopelessness about the future, and memory problems that overlap between PTSD and depression.
