I know many people with PD have similar problems around food, digestion and medication ineffectiveness.  The reason for this, I believe, is in the role of the primitive Dorsal (Vegetative) branch of the Vagus Nerve in digestion, the specific part of the Nervous System also responsible for immobization/freeze responses in humans. Essentially, when a lot of food hits the digestive tract, this can send the enteric nervous system of people with PD into shock, activating the Dorsal Vagus, but in a way which then also inhibits the Ventral (Smart) Vagus Branch responsible for relaxed digestion. This enteric stress therefore results in increased motor symptoms. See

While it’s true not that all pain could possibly healed by a single method, as the causes of the pain matter most and may not be treatable by PEMF, which targets to heal the cause of the pain as well. For example, PEMF is not effective in pathogenic environments as the microorganisms will also find PEMF nutritious and thrive in it. In such pathogenic environment, such as in case of Lymes Disease, electric zapper devices might be the best electrotherapy mode rather than PEMF. PEMF could employed for rapid recovery after the pathogens are over-powered or vanquished by using electrotherapy.
Jusqu'à présent, je ne les utilise pas au cp. Mais je viens justement de recevoir le fichier de fin de CP, que j'ai commandé  dans l'idée de faire quelques fiches avec mes élèves pour qu'ils connaissent le fonctionnement et que l'an prochain, ils puissent débuter le fichier Ce1 dès les premiers jours. Après un premier aperçu, je trouve toutefois le contenu en-deça de celui des fichiers PEMF Ce1 et CE2. J'aime bien le fait que la progression soit lente (travail important sur les nombres jusqu'à 10 sur une bonne moitié de l'année) mais je trouve qu'il manque quelques stratégies de calcul importantes en fin de CP. Enfin ce n'est qu'un premier avis car je l'ai reçu hier.
Or, you can get your own equipment. PEMF devices aren’t classified as regulated medical devices, so you don’t need to be a doctor or a chiropractor to buy a PEMF device. If you can afford it, you can get a PEMF mat, pad, or ring. Affording it is the tricky part. The cheapest PEMF mats go for $1,300 or more, and the prices go up from there. As with anything, you get what you pay for, and higher-quality devices run into five figures.
Those who need more localized treatment for the joints, extremities, head or neck area, may wish to consider using the OMI PEMF ring. This ring can be easily and comfortably placed around the neck to address pain or other health concerns in those areas. This could be a gentle form of therapy for those with injury to the cervical spine, as well as for those who suffer from chronic headaches.

Cold applications diminish the inflammatory condition by acting as vasoconstrictors and reducing metabolic activity.118,119 Cooling also diminishes discomfort associated with the acute shoulder injury by increasing the threshold of pain in stimulated nerve fibers.120,121 Through this cold-induced analgesia, normal shoulder motion can be facilitated.122 Cold therapy can be effective with ice massage for 15 to 20 minutes with the arm positioned in abduction (Fig. 41-8).
Although I am certified in cardiology and gastroenterology, a significant portion of my practice is now devoted to exploring how PST achieves its benefits.10 I have treated 1000 patients, most of whom had knee OA, with very gratifying results similar to those reported in the literature. The panel cited two prior efforts to establish guidelines for treating knee OA, emphasising that these “primarily represent consensus statements from expert panels” and “The type and strength of evidence to support such guidelines remain unclear.” Their stated objective, therefore, was to “develop guidelines relating to clinical issues in OA management, and to indicate clearly the level of evidence to support individual statements”. However, electromagnetic therapy approaches were again omitted, though at least one of the members is quite familiar with PST. The reason for this exclusion is not clear and I believe that your readership deserves to be aware of this extremely safe and effective option.

The original PEMF devices consisted of a Helmholtz coil which generated a magnetic field. The patient's body was placed inside the magnetic field to deliver treatment. Today, the majority of PEMF wellness devices resemble a typical yoga mat in dimensions but are slightly thicker to house several flat spiral coils to produce an even electromagnetic field. A frequency generator is then used to energize the coils to create a pulsed electromagnetic field. A wide variety of professional and consumer PEMF devices are sold and marketed as FDA registered wellness devices.[9] The majority are manufactured in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and are imported into North America as electric massagers or full body electric yoga mats. They are either placed on a massage table for clinical use or directly on the floor in the home to practice simple yoga postures. The companies that sell and manufacture them as "general wellness products" are not permitted to make medical claims of effectiveness in treating disease.[9]

Lie on the PEMF mat for approximately 30 minutes a day to maximize your benefit from the sessions. You can always split the 30 minutes into smaller time periods if you cannot stay on the mat for that time. This being said, every mat is made differently and this instruction is just a general guideline. Follow the recommendations on the instructions for your PEMF mat for optimal results.
EMFs fall on a wide spectrum — everything from x-rays and satellites to your wireless headphones emit EMFs at different frequencies. High-frequency EMFs, like X-rays that register frequencies in the hundred quintillion Hz range (yes, that’s a number and it’s big) are the most disruptive to your body. That’s because they are ionizing — which means they have enough energy to break electrons off of atoms, which charges them. This changes the way your cells work.
On the show, world-class pain specialist Dr. James Dillard mentioned electromagnetic portable pads to Dr. Oz. These mats produce a therapeutic pulsed electromagnetic field that can surround the entire body. They are not FDA-approved and are not made in the USA. PEMF mats are primarily advertised and distributed over the Internet, often used without medical supervision. Retail price is $2000 to $3000, and often renting is possible for a weekly rate. There are a dozen different companies that make these devices. Three examples are the Mediconsult iMRS/MRS2000, Medithera Home System, and Quantron Resonance System QRS-101.
EarthPulse™ PEMF enhances magnetic field every night. Feel a decade (or two+ younger in 90 days or return it. And you’ll probably notice the difference in one night, but we give you 90 days. Nothing has that guarantee and you have nothing to lose but your feeling bad and poor sleep. Magnetic Field Deficiency was first identified by the Japanese scientists long ago.
Also on the show, family physician Dr. William Pawluk discussed the OrthoCor Active Knee System. This is an FDA-approved device that combines PEMF energy and thermal therapy to increase circulation and thus reduce swelling, relieve chronic pain and arthritis, as well as improve range of motion. The device’s technology consists of a cuff that surrounds the knee. It has a coil and heat pods that send magnetic pulses and heat through the injured tissue. Patients can walk while the OrthoCor device is in operation. OrthoCor sells its products through orthopedic clinics, physicians and health care practitioners.
Omnium1 PEMF Mat - https://myjoyfulhealth.com Email JoyfulHealthStore@gmail.com .... - The term PEMF means Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields and describes in modern medicine the specific application of unique pulsed, electromagnetic frequencies and intensities for the health benefit of human beings and animals.

You may have heard that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that come from things like wireless routers, microwaves, and airplanes disrupt your biology. EMFs can alter your DNA[1][2][3][4] and reconfigure your genes,[5][6] which can leave your cells not really knowing what to do. That can result in a lot of havoc, ranging from being tired all the time or ending up with DNA damage and cancer.[7]
Dr. Pawluk also introduced a small, disposable PEMF device called Acti-Patch by Bioelectronics Corp. In Canada, ActiPatch is a Class II device and is sold over-the-counter. Health Canada has approved it for relief of musculoskeletal pain. It is not FDA-approved for musculoskeletal pain, so the efficacy of these patches is still unclear. It may have some benefit with superficial pain and edema.
Although the evidence for this isn’t unanimous, some of the best and most recent PEMF trials are unambiguously positive.3Bagnato GL, Miceli G, Marino N, Sciortino D, Bagnato GF. Pulsed electromagnetic fields in knee osteoarthritis: a double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. Rheumatology (Oxford). 2016 Apr;55(4):755–62. PubMed #26705327. PainSci #53404.

Heading up NewMed is Business Development Manager Andy Smith. His father, and parent company director, suggested that Andy use PEMF therapy after he experienced complications following stomach surgery. After such a positive experience using PEMF therapy himself, Andy thought there would be no better advocate for it in the UK and that’s how NewMed began…
PRP injections are being utilized for partial rotator cuff tears. There are mixed results in the literature. A randomized controlled trial (level I evidence) with a 1-year follow-up demonstrated no benefit from a single PRP injection in comparison with placebo (Kesikburun et al, 2013). Biologic type injections may have a role in the treatment of partial rotator cuff tears; however, the exact platelet count and leukocyte concentration in PRP for optimal growth factor activity has yet to be definitively proven in the literature.
Determining whether the injury is traumatic or is related to overuse is the first step to frame the treatment strategies. In the athlete with a trauma history, the initial goal is to control the pain and to restore full shoulder/scapula mobility and strength. The treatment for a partial rotator cuff tear in the overhead throwing athlete centers on the underlying deficiencies seen, such as loss of shoulder motion, scapula dyskinesia, and rotator cuff weakness. Mechanical flaws in the throwing or overhead motion may also need to be corrected.

Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technologies have shown usefulness as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of both delayed-union fractures1 and chronic wounds.2 These relatively simple devices use an external, non-invasive PEMF to generate shorts bursts of electrical current in injured tissue without producing heat or interfering with nerve or muscle function. Recently, increased understanding of the mechanism of action of PEMF therapy has permitted technologic advances yielding economical and disposable PEMF devices. With these devices, PEMF therapy has been broadened to include the treatment of postoperative pain and edema in both outpatient and home settings,3 offering the physician a more versatile tool for patient management.
EarthPulse™ makes the only devices of their kind. EarthPulse™ PEMF devices allow for all night brain stimulation for a deeper state of sleep, while simultaneously enhancing and helping promote mitochondrial oxygen metabolism. More energy from every breath of air! More efficient O2 metabolism lowers oxidative stress and promotes cells resiliency to other metabolic stress producers like WiFi and other types of RF (radio frequency). The E-Stim does what a strong magnetic stimulator costing over $10,000 would do for just $399!
As with back pain each of the possible contributing factors need to be examined and included in the treatment plan as appropriate (Kent et al 2005). This means that instead of lumping groups of symptoms together (e.g. rotator cuff symptoms) it has been suggested to split and recognise factors that cause laxity, impingement and/or lesion and provide treatment as the clinician sees fit. So far:
Some systematic reviews (Green et al 2003, Faber et al 2006) have supported a combination of manual therapy and exercise for patients with impingement for improvements in pain and function. Manual therapy interventions may be appropriate for restrictions in the glenohumeral joint, shoulder girdle, cervical and thoracic spine, and ribs and are discussed in more detail in Chapters 11, 12, 15 and 20.
What’s more is that, PEMF treatment is pulsed and brief, so you don’t have extended exposure like you would sitting under a cell phone tower all day. Most PEMF treatments last 10-20 minutes and deliver short bursts the whole time, instead of constant exposure. So, you can get all of the benefits of PEMF without the negative effects that come with man-made EMF sources like electronics.

EarthPulse™ PEMF is the only wellness device in the world harnessing and enhancing the natural circadian sleep & recovery states for improved repair and greatly enhanced daytime performance. The ergogenic effects (athletic performance enhancement) resulting from sleeping in the EarthPulse™ pulsed electromagnetic field  is unmatched by anything in the published literature.
In an episode of the Bulletproof Radio podcast, PEMF expert Dr. Gary Ryan, known as “The Energy Doctor,” explains, “Based on a lot of research that was done at Yale, it is apparent that just about any pathology in the body is preceded by a drop in cell charge. Now we have technology that will reach down to the level of a cell that has lost charge and, due to the high intensity of the pulse, bring that pulse back to normal or a more normal situation, which allows it to replicate and produce a more normal cell.”
Effect of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, configured for the calcium/calmodulin pathway, on (A) a cutaneous full-thickness wound and (B) a transected Achilles' tendon healing in the rat. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy treatment was administered for 30 minutes twice daily for 21 days. The results showed a 59% increase in the tensile strength of the treated wound and a 69% increase in the tensile strength of the tendon. (Courtesy Strauch et al.49,50)
After plugging in your mat, turn up the temperature to the maximum setting for 10 minutes to allow the mat to warm up. Doing this allows the copper coils in the mat to become fully heated, releasing more PEMF waves. After 10 minutes, reduce the temperature to a desired temperature and once the mat reaches that temperature, lie down on the PEMF mat and begin your mat session.
Magnetic therapy is simply the therapeutic application of magnets and can be delivered in many forms. In a 12-week, randomized trial, subjects with MS laid down on a metal mat for 8 minutes twice daily. The device delivered low-frequency, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. Another study had subjects with MS wear wristwatch-size, magnetic pulsing devices called Enermed for 10 to 24 hours daily for 2 months. Another device also delivered low-frequency magnetic stimulations at 37.5 mT and a sequence of pulses at 4 to 7 Hz three times weekly for 2 months. These studies demonstrated consistent benefits in reducing fatigue but no benefit for depression in subjects with MS.53
All energy is electromagnetic in nature. All atoms, chemicals and cells produce electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Every organ in the body produces its own signature bio-electromagnetic field. Science has proven that our bodies actually project their own magnetic fields and that all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate via electromagnetic frequencies.
The most recent studies of the PEMF transduction pathway have concentrated upon the Ca/CaM-dependent nitric oxide (NO) cascades. It is within this system that the effectiveness of PEMF is now understood to function. However, those linkages were dependent on the discovery that NO is a signaling molecule.41 NO is synthesized via nitric oxide synthase (NOS), that has several different isoforms.42 When injury occurs, large amounts of NO are produced by long-lived inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). In this cascade, tissue levels of NO persist and the prolonged presence of this free radical is proinflammatory,43 which accounts for the leaky blood vessels associated with pain and swelling.44 In contrast, the endothelial and neuronal nitric oxide synthase isoforms (eNOS and nNOS, respectively) produce NO in short bursts that can immediately relax blood and lymph vessels.45,46 These short bursts of NO also lead to the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate, which in turn drives growth factor production.47 Interestingly, iNOS is not dependent on CaM,43 while the constitutive or cNOS (eNOS or nNOS) cascade is dependent on the binding of Ca/CaM. Therapies that could accelerate Ca/CaM binding, therefore, should impact all phases of tissue repair, from initial pain and swelling to blood vessel growth, tissue regeneration, and remodeling.42
It works! After my first session on the pre programmed P1 setting, I had energy! Natural energy! I was so sluggish and could not get out of the funk I was in. A friend told me about the mat so I got one. I use it daily! LIFE CHANGER!! No more naps! I feel like my old self again! And Best of all...off my antidepressants that were so bad for me! Go rent one on their website to try it out for 3 months! It is AMAZING and LIFE CHANGING!!

Inflammation is caused by the body attempting to heal itself after experiencing injury. PEMF Therapy helps to reduce the inflammation by charging the cells with a gentle electromagnetic pulse. Once charged, the cells then increase their oxygen carrying ability which promotes healing, reduces swelling and pain. The electromagnetic pulse that flows through the body stops the release of inflammatory mediators and increases blood flow.
Although PEMF therapy may seem like a novel technology, it has been safely and effectively utilized across America and Europe for over five decades. PEMF therapy is surrounded by more than 7,000 studies and clinical trials, including those from NASA, that have demonstrated the advantages of PEMFs. PEMF is a popular therapy used for better health and improved performance of both humans and animals worldwide.

“The magnet is brilliant and we are sleeping on Recovery mode all the time now, most obvious thing is the amount of energy we have on waking up and throughout the day; no pushing through the day anymore. Jimena, (whom I recommended), also says the same, she is more than happy with her results too. Wind under load readings very high very quickly also.”

Illustrations of some current postsurgical uses of portable/disposable pulsed electromagnetic field devices with signals configured for the calcium/calmodulin/nitric oxide pathway. A, Application to breast augmentation/reduction. The devices are incorporated in dressings/bras and activated immediately after surgery. B, Application to abdominoplasty. The device is incorporated into the dressing and activated immediately after surgery. The device is applied over the dressing and autoactivated every 4 hours for 72 hours and then every 8 hours for 72 hours and, finally, twice a day until it is no longer needed.

Three years later, this concept was taken one step further when Georges Lakhovsky shared his ideology and theories that the reinforcement of cell oscillation with radio waves increased their ability to fight off damage or disease. It did this by making them stronger and more resilient, Lakhovsky ascertained. Over the course of the next several decades, many researchers—Royal Raymond Rife, Antoine Priore, Robert Becker, and Abraham Liboff, to name a few—would each identify and research various pieces of information which, together helped create PEMF as we know it today.

Many PEMF mats come with other therapies programmed into the mat. If your mat has more than one therapy, try not to enable all the therapies at once. Instead, enable 1-2 therapies every 3 days (ex. With a top of the line 5 therapy mat ). Enabling therapies gradually will allow your body to adapt to the different waves passing through it, which will result in a more positive healing experience.

PEMF may seem like a new technology, however it has been used throughout Europe and other countries for 50+ years. Over 2,000 double blind medical studies have documented the neurological, physiological and psychological positive effects of PEMF. It has repeatedly shown IMPROVED tissue repair in far less time, with NO adverse reactions. In fact, PEMF has received a boost in exposure since NASA used the therapy to treat astronauts.
The scientific reviews of PEMF used for this purpose are unstintingly positive.1Shi Hf, Xiong J, Chen Yx, et al. Early application of pulsed electromagnetic field in the treatment of postoperative delayed union of long-bone fractures: a prospective randomized controlled study. BMC Musculoskelet Disord. 2013;14:35. PubMed #23331333. PainSci #53405. “Fracture patients treated with an early application of PEMF achieved a significantly increased rate of union and an overall reduced suffering time compared with patients that receive PEMF after the 6 months or more of delayed union, as described by others.” 2Assiotis A, Sachinis NP, Chalidis BE. Pulsed electromagnetic fields for the treatment of tibial delayed unions and nonunions. A prospective clinical study and review of the literature. J Orthop Surg Res. 2012;7:24. PubMed #22681718. PainSci #53378. “PEMF stimulation is an effective non-invasive method for addressing non-infected tibial union abnormalities. Its success is not associated with specific fracture or patient related variables and it couldn't be clearly considered a time-dependent phenomenon.” When does this happen in musculoskeletal medicine? Never, that’s when!
En formation initiale : Outre le tutorat des fonctionnaires stagiaires et l’accompagnement des étudiants en stage (stages d’observation, stages de pratique accompagnée), les PEMF devront intervenir prioritairement dans les ESPE, au sein d’équipes pluri-professionnelles. Ils seront aussi amenés à accompagner les stagiaires en M2, dans leur travail de recherche, dans le cadre du mémoire professionnel et à participer à des dispositifs de recherche-action initiés dans les ESPE.
