The Bio Electro Magnetic Energy Regulator (BEMER) is a well-known treatment modality in Europe and is just gaining popularity for its beneficial effects here in the U.S. It uses a low level pulsed electromagnetic field, similar to that of the earth’s electromagnetic field, to bathe your entire body with a soothing energy that has a positive effect on every cell.
What is BEMER? BEMER is a technology that influences the most important part of the circulatory system: the microscopic capillaries. The capillaries comprise 74% of your vascular system. If you took all of the body’s capillaries and put them end to end you would circle the Earth three times! These tiny vessels are responsible for getting blood to every single cell in the body. Without that blood carrying oxygen and nutrients to the cells, cells can’t function properly and/or they die. Blood flow, then, is vital to optimal cellular health, which then determines bodily health!
What is BEMER used for? BEMER is intended to enhance general blood flow and cardiac function. By doing so, now more nutrients and oxygen are brought to all of the cells and the waste from cell metabolism is better removed. Our body works best when the cells receive the optimal amounts of oxygen and nutrients, and of course, when metabolic waste is regularly removed from the cellular environment.
Why is this important? When the cells don’t have the oxygen and nutrients they need they don’t function at their best. With diminished blood flow through the blood vessels, oxygen and nutrients cannot get through. The result? Every single part of your body doesn’t function at its best, opening the way for breakdown and disease.
Cell Metabolism Produces Waste That Must Be Carried Away And Out. Your cells create waste as a by-product of metabolism (i.e., when you eat you have waste to eliminate; similarly, when the cells “eat” and process they produce waste that needs to be eliminated). When the blood doesn’t properly flow through the system, the fluid surrounding your cells has waste build-up, further hampering proper function and healing.
Why Could There be a Problem with Blood Flow? Remember that atherosclerosis (or plaque buildup in the arteries and arteriole branches, which are the larger blood vessels) is a serious health problem and gets worse with age, particularly due to modern processed food and high-stress lifestyles. What most people don’t realize, and what medications cannot affect successfully, is that the inflammation and blockages can build up in the tiny capillaries too!
How and Why Does BEMER Work? Discovered by two Harvard doctors in 1972 who went on to be Nobel Prize winners in 1998, we say BEMER was then created in 1998. BEMER is a PEMF device (or pulsed, electromagnetic frequency device). The fundamentals of BEMER’s effect is due to the unique wave form it uses (holds 5 international patents). It is a complex sinusoidal proprietary combination of 10 and 30 hz. wave form which stimulates optimal blood flow and positively affect systemic circulation. BEMER’s unique wave form reaches millions of cells in body and far more efficiently. One 8-minute session improves general blood flow and cardiac function for 12 – 16 hours! BEMER also reduces red blood cell clumping (called “agglutination”), which further improves getting more oxygen to more cells.
When comparing BEMER to any other PEMF devices, even most complex of them have a wave of maximum 300 per second and their pulses only reach a certain number of cell frequencies. But BEMER’s unmatched wave signal delivers 1,200 per second. More signals to more cells equals more effect. In addition to this signal and wave form, BEMER has a unique EMF distribution which enables BEMER to affect multiple cellular processes simultaneously. Of these many processes and effects, the most profound of BEMER’s EMF is on the body’s hemodynamics (blood movement) or systemic circulation. BEMER has a sleep program to help the body in its natural circadian rhythm. It has a light program that assists circulation in the skin, and attachments that concentrate the BEMER signal for enhancing blood flow to specific body areas, like a shoulder, hip, knee, etc.
HOW is BEMER affecting the blood vessels specifically? The wave form is one aspect of why this is happening, but the manner in which this is delivered through timely variation. The frequency BEMER deploys to affect the blood flow through the body are 10 and 30 hz. The 10 hz. has a direct nerve effect for the larger arterioles. The 30 hz. has an effect on the smaller arterioles by stimulating production of nitric oxide – a vasodilator. The BEMER displays its effect through a neuroendocrine mechanism of action. It is important to note also that the BEMER switches polarity about every 2 minutes so that the body does not accommodate to a unidirectional field.
