Reduce Symptoms by Stimulating Cells
Kathie Gonzales, ARNP-BC
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) began in the 1800s when Nikola Tesla discovered it was harmless to use on the human body. Since then, much biotechnological or energy medicine research has been done to understand both its effects and benefits. PEMF devices such as the Bemer are FDA registered for bone healing, but perhaps the best validation of the science behind Bemer is their collaboration with NASA in the development of the next generation of space suits.
The body inherently has electrically charged molecules and atoms, so using PEMF pulsed with a frequency and a given amplitude allows for a dilation of small blood vessels, reducing the blood’s velocity while improving tissue perfusion and stimulating the immune system. Bemer therapy has been shown to improve microcirculation by up to 30 percent.
Autism, aging and chronic disease are caused by cells losing their ability to produce energy, damage to the mitochondria and an increase in oxidative stress. A well-known physician, Mark Hyman, documented research from UC Davis that mitochondrial damage in the autistic children studied was not found solely in the neurons in the brain, but from a systemic energy deficit.
Autism, aging and chronic disease are caused by cells losing their ability to produce energy, damage to the mitochondria and an increase in oxidative stress.
The goal of any treatment in autism is to reduce symptoms by stimulating cells and improving blood flow which allows for improvement in cognition, communication and anxiety. PEMF therapy is not a cure but can be used as adjunct therapy in addition to eliminating environmental toxins; mercury, lead and food allergens; gluten, processed sugar and nutrient deficiencies; and supplementation with omega 3, vitamin D and zinc.
Eight minutes of daily Bemer therapy is a noninvasive, general wellness therapy that may help to reduce the impact of chronic disease and improve one’s quality of life. However, it is contraindicated in anyone with a pacemaker, cochlear implant or bleeding disorder.
