I've bought both the full size body mat and the small travel pad from Naljor. You won't be disappointed if you buy. I had many questions before and after I bought the mats because they were big investments for me. Especially if they didn't work. I've read several books, it's all very fascinating and each one tells you this works best or that works best etc, both my mats work great. I have multiple skeletal issues such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, spondylosis, severe bursitis both hips etc. have been a floor nurse 30 years and before that I fell out of a barn at 8 on my head on cement. so, have always been in pain. The full body mat I lay on 2 times a day for 20min. I set it on phase one which is a variable magnetic pulse from 0-39, that continues to recycle. if I explain this wrong Naljor can correct me. Our body, like the earth emits 8 hertz and when we are sick or full of inflammation we need the earth to health us which is what the increased magnetic pulse does. It regenerates and gets rid of all the toxins and waste and helps us to heal. We also have to take responsibility and eat healthy, exercise, don't smoke drink etc if you want to be at 100%. Anyway, in finding Naljor and all his experience and knowledge has been a God send and he also donates his profits to an organization to help people. ( can't remember what it is called.) It is a big investment but this is truly so much better than standard medicine. Good luck and hope this helps someone.

ORL : L'ORL, Observation réfléchie de la langue, est une démarche d'enseignement de la grammaire introduite par les programmes de 2002. Elle consiste à partir de textes d'auteurs dont on dégage un aspect par l'observation. Le but de cette observation ciblée est à la fois de produire une règle et de réutiliser en production écrite ce qui a été constaté. En raison de la difficulté à mettre en oeuvre cette pédagogie et du manque d'outils disponibles, elle n'a été réellement mise en place que dans un faible pourcentage des classes. D'autre part, il est faux de dire comme on l'entend souvent que cette démarche est une nouveauté de 2002. En effet, elle avait fait l'objet d'environ 20 ans de recherche avant 2002 et on en trouve des traces à l'époque de Napoléon III* ou de Jules Ferry.
Valone said that it was two years short of the 20th century when Tesla reportedly addressed the American Electro-Therapeutic Association, telling its members that “ One of the early observed and remarkable features of the high frequency currents,and one which was chiefly of interest to the physician, was their apparent harmlessness which made it possible to pass relatively great amounts of electrical energy through the body of a person without causing pain or serious discomfort.”
Stationary (or “static”), non-varying, magnetic fields from magnets have fixed strengths. They are used in mattresses, bracelets, knee wraps and the like. Most have very shallow penetration into the body, resulting in a very limited ability to affect deeper tissues, and they rarely treat all the cells of the body simultaneously. Only skilled practitioners may guide you to get the best results from these approaches.
Did you know that the OMI mat is the primary PEMF product that consumers use to get renewed energy and better sleep? This is what most individuals turn to for a more complete approach to PEMF therapy. The OMI PEMF therapy mat is lightweight, easy to use, easy to clean and it is beautifully designed with a soft microfiber surface comfortable enough for anyone to use.
Results: Low-back pain scores for the 42-µs group decreased by 40.2% (p = 0.028), compared to 18.6% for the 38-µs pulse width group (p = 0.037) and 25.6% for the sham group (p = 0.013 per protocol population). Average leg pain scores decreased by 45.0% (42 μs, p = 0.009), 17.0% (38 μs, p = 0.293), and 24.5% (sham, p = 0.065). The proportion of subjects responding to therapy, time to 30% reduction in pain scores, and Patient Global Impression of Change were improved with the PEMF 42-μs device over the sham control, although results were associated with p-values >0.05.

While the researchers ultimately recommended that more research be conducted on this particular treatment method to be able to clearly say that it is effective for a variety of different health conditions, they also noted that“ Acute adverse effects have not been reported.” This was after reviewing 11 PEMF studies in total,each of which had anywhere from 12 to 71 participants.
Female subjects must be post-menopausal, surgically sterile, abstinent, or practicing (or agree to practice) an effective method of birth control if they are sexually active for the duration of the study. (Effective methods of birth control include prescription hormonal contraceptives, intrauterine devices, double-barrier methods, and/or male partner sterilization).
Conventional medicine continues to be dominated by mechanical/chemical thinking (surgery and medication treatments). However, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields Therapy already forms part of conventional medicine as a complementary treatment method. It is currently accepted by specialist medical bodies and is a key topic in medical working groups and a current object of research in a number of universities.
The feasibility of PEMF therapy for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has also been investigated in a single-group, open-label, phase I/II clinical study. Forty-one patients with advanced HCC received very low levels of PEMFs modulated at HCC-specific frequencies (100 Hz–21 kHz) and received three-daily 60 min outpatient treatments. No adverse reactions were observed during PEMF treatment. Five patients reported complete disappearance and two patients reported decrease in pain shortly after beginning of treatment. Four patients showed a partial response to treatment, while 16 patients (39%) had stable disease for more than 12 weeks. This study shows that PEMF therapy provides a safe and well-tolerated treatment, as well as evidence of antineoplastic effects in patients with HCC.
La cour des comptes elle-même vient de pointer le fiasco que représente la prétendue nouvelle formation des enseignants. Depuis quelques années, l’institution a choisi de faire des économies en faisant appel à des MAT (maître d’accueil temporaire) plutôt qu’à des PEMF (professeur des écoles maître formateur) pour accueillir des étudiants en stage dans leur classe.
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.

Many people are aware of the negative effects Electro Magnetic Fields have but it is important to understand not all Electro Magnetic fields are bad and in the case of PEMF therapy we are using them to recharge our cells. Each cell in the body has its own small electromagnetic field with all our cells operating between around 0-30Hz. The Earth also has a magnetic field fundamental resonance frequency which is usually around 7.83Hz which is referred to the Schumann Frequency and this is the type of magnetic field our bodies have evolved to operate properly in. The problem is with increasing technology our world is getting filled with electromagnetic pollution that is filled with higher frequency electromagnetic fields our bodies are unable to properly function with and is making us sick.
Taping patients may support retraining of correct movement patterns. However, using asymptomatic subjects Cools et al (2002) showed that tape application intended to inhibit the upper and facilitate the lower trapezius had no effect on electromyographic activity in the serratus anterior or all three portions of the trapezius with resisted or un-resisted flexion and abduction of the shoulder. The authors suggested altered timing as a possible explanation for the clinically observed effects of taping. In contrast, in patients with subacromial impingement Selkowitz et al (2007) did show that similar taping decreased upper trapezius and increased lower trapezius activity during a functional overhead-reaching task and that it decreased upper trapezius activity during shoulder abduction in the scapular plane. Mechanisms suggested to be involved in taping include facilitation or augmentation of proprioceptive cutaneous input, tension when movement occurs outside of the movement pattern allowed by the taping application, and inhibition or facilitation by taping shortened overactive muscles in a lengthened position, whereas the tape might be used hold lengthened under-active muscles in a shortened position. Various taping techniques appropriate for patients with impingement have been described in the literature (Morrissey 2000, Kneeshaw 2002) (Fig 16.5). Morrissey (2000) suggested that when the positive effect on the movement pattern or on symptoms was maintained, taping could be discontinued.
Several mechanisms of PEMF therapy have been elucidated with regards to cancer. These studies have shown that PEMF therapy may exert proliferative inhibition and mitotic spindle disruption, block the development of neovascularization (blood supply) required for tumor growth and exacerbate an inherent or induced genetic instability by reducing the stringency of the late-cycle (G2) checkpoint. PEMF therapy also modulates gene expression and protein synthesis, interacting with specific DNA sequences within gene promoter regions. PEMFs have also an immunomodulatory effect, as supported by in vivo evidence showing an increase in tumor necrosis factor alpha levels that induce an anti-tumoral response.
La rémunération des PEMF n’était pas à l’ordre du jour, le SNUipp a cependant demandé que le régime indemnitaire des PEMF ne soit plus lié à l’exercice de certaines missions mais à leur fonction et qu’il soit aligné sur celui des CPD-EPS et CP. Le ministère a répondu que le contexte budgétaire ne permettait pas de prévoir une augmentation conséquente pour les PEMF, mais prévoit de passer l’indemnité de fonction de tutrat à 1000 euros au lieu de 929 euros actuels.
Widely used in Europe, and growing in popularity across North America, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been used for decades by doctors, chiropractors, naturopaths and even veterinarians. In the past, PEMF devices were quite large and prohibitively expensive for most of the general public. Today, however, PEMF devices are used in many homes, and costs have fallen considerably.
A systematic review aimed to examine the efficacy of rTMS on improving physical function and motor signs over the short- and long-terms in people with PD; Effect of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Physical Function and Motor Signs in Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis; Chung CL; Brain Stimul. 2016 Jul-Aug;9(4):475-87. Twenty-two trials comprising 555 people with PD were included in the review. The pooled evidence suggests that rTMS improves upper limb function in the short-term, walking performance and Unified Parkinson’s Disease rating Scale (UPDRS III) in the short- and long-terms in PD sufferers.
ZIL : Le ZIL est un professeur des écoles titulaire remplaçant qui s'occupe essentiellement des remplacements courts, urgents et non prévus. Mais il peut aussi remplacer sur des congés maternité. Lorsqu'il n'a pas de remplacement, il reste dans son école de rattachement où il aide ses collègues. Le ZIL se déplace en théorie dans un rayon de 20km autour de son école de rattachement, en pratique dans toute sa circonscription.

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.”


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.


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.

I feel like a new person! I’m learning how to live a healthy lifestyle through videos played in the office…through the many conversations and directions given by Dr. Pacelli on a weekly basis…and through his written materials. It’s been a real wake-up call to learn about the toxins in our environment and from the foods we eat. I have no doubt my quality of life will be tremendously improved as I continue to follow the advice of Dr. Pacelli. He’s definitely knowledgeable, caring, and highly invested in helping people get well and live the life we were created to live.”


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. Omnium1 PEMF Mat http://www.joyfulhealthstore.omnium1
It is important to understand that PEMF therapy or any energy medicine device for the matter does not treat disease like a pharmaceutical synthetic drug. What it does is to assist the body so it can heal itself. The body is self-healing, self-regulating and self-regenerating and can heal itself if it is given energy and the right elements needed to sustain life.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, with other less commonly used interventions, was not included in this list, and its evidence for efficacy was therefore not assessed. However, as emphasised by Dr Pfeiffer, an evidence based evaluation of all other interventions would be of interest and could be considered for inclusion in the next round of evidence based guidelines.
To apply PEMF therapy, an electrical current is run through a copper coil which produces a magnetic field. This has been incorporated into various types of devices, with a full body therapy mat being  the most effective and oft-used device. One either lays on the mat or places the applicator in the region that needs to be treated. PEMFs will enter through the body targeting the muscle tissue, cells, and even bones.
The EMP pad, in my opinion, is a typical quack device – it is sold with wishy-washy structure-function claims and vague claims of dramatic health benefits. It uses sciencey jargon about resonance and magnetic fields, the appeal to nature fallacy, and irrelevant references to scientific studies that don’t even come close to establishing their claims.
The EarthPulse is one of the most widely used PEMF device, and is primarily designed to facilitate deep delta rhythm sleep. Deep sleep causes recovery to accelerate and thereby reduces pain faster more naturally. The EarthPulse PEMF device is contrived to generate magnetic fields that “entrain” the brain by setting it in a cycle of regularized sleep rhythm. Thus it not only delivers PEMFs but also uses it in a much more effective manner by auto-shifting the frequencies to provide brainwave entrainment. It could just be the most effective brainwave entrainment tool too (and not just PEMF!). Brainwave entrainment basically means training your brain to operate at the best level of consciousness at any given time of the day. When a good circadian rhythm is established, the body performs best, recovery happens optimally and many types of pain vanish faster.
“The PEMF Therapy and all the other treatments by Dr Pacelli is the best decision I could have made! In the 4 months I’ve seen huge improvements in my health. The psoriasis is diminishing…my energy has greatly improved…my color is wonderful…my weight is decreasing…my blood sugars are totally normal…and I’ve shown my medical doctors that I don’t need the Statin drug they were trying to force on me…because my LDL and cholesterol levels are now totally normal.
How does the PEMF machine work then? As each pulse of electromagnetic energy runs through the body, it improves the cells micro-circulation, simultaneously increasing the blood flow and amount of oxygen available to each cell, which in turn improves the electron transport chain efficiency. In turn this causes the ATP in cells to increase, making them function at optimal levels, making the body expel toxins, absorb nutrients and produce more energy.

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.

I have recently taken a career break from the NHS to follow my passion for cranial work and develop how I integrate the understanding that comes from cranial teachings with movement based practice. Your findings sit so in harmony with my experience. I have to say that I haven't gone out of my way to look further into similar approaches to P.d. - from what I see on you website, you appear to be pioneering a way forward - is this all your own research, or can you point me to other sources too?
In the overhead throwing athlete, shoulder rehabilitation should be directed at the underlying deficits, most commonly loss of shoulder internal rotation and poor control of the scapula. A four-phase approach is described by Wilk & Macrina (2014) in the nonoperative treatment of throwing shoulder injuries. In phase 1, the “acute phase,” the primary goals are to diminish pain/inflammation, improve motion, activate the appropriate muscles, create dynamic stability and muscle balance, and restore proprioception. The athlete’s level of activity is adjusted according to symptoms, which usually require the athlete to abstain from activity. Internal rotation motion is addressed; the preferred stretches are the modified sleeper’s stretch and supine horizontal adduction with internal rotation stretch (Fig. 6A.2). A horizontal adduction stretch with manual patient assistance into internal rotation is performed. Assessment of scapula positioning is also recommended, with strengthening of the scapula retractors and the lower trapezius and additional stretching of the pectoralis minor. The primary goals of phase 2, the “intermediate phase,” are to progress the strengthening program, improve the range of motion, and facilitate neuromuscular control. Core strengthening is also initiated during this phase. Kibler et al (2013) have emphasized the need to evaluate and treat the entire system to restore the athlete’s kinetic chain. Phase 3, the “advanced strengthening phase,” involves aggressive strengthening drills to promote power and endurance as well as functional drills, and throwing is gradually introduced. “Return to throwing phase,” phase 4, incorporates the progression of an interval-throwing program. This program controls for distance, intensity, and surface, in that for pitchers, throwing from the mound is the last advancement. It is important to be aware that when athletes are told to throw with 50% effort, they actually throw at 83% of their maximal speed, and when asked to throw at 75% they are actually throwing at 90% of their maximal effort (Fleisig et al, 1996).
Sleeping inside the infrasonic cocoon created by our patented, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field each night, precisely “tuned” to Mother Nature’s very special low-low (infrasonic) frequencies will leave you feeling clear headed, sharp, full of energy, and with a renewed zest for life. Our entire frequency range is under 15 Hz; and with these magnetic frequencies, we can give you the best sleep you’ve had in decades, or, alternatively help wake you up at a specific time in the morning; or keep you alert through most of the night with less caffeine.

Apparently, these PEMF therapy induced, oxygen (metabolism) effects are accelerated under load. While our U.S. Swimmers increased their static-breath-hold by 19% and 20% in 21 days, their underwater swim increased by 50% from one length of a 50M pool, to being able to turn and swim 1/2 way back. 75M with a turn in between! One NFL star running back increased his vertical jump by over 2 inches! These types of ergogenic effects are simply unprecedented. We’re the super-secret weapon of many professional sportsmen. Improving their dollar-value and extending their careers while they sleep. Priceless!…that’s EarthPulse™.
The research to date has shown that the mechanisms by which PEMF works are complicated and likely involve many pathways. In addition to increasing cell metabolism, perhaps PEMF’s greatest power is in its ability to ameliorate the effects of inflammation by decreasing inflammatory cytokines. it is also conceivable, as suggested by Gordon et al, that another important effect of PEMF is the ability of the magnetic fields to restore “equilibrium in ROS (free radical)/antioxidant chemistry. It is unequivocal that all chronic diseases result from a lack of homeostasis between free radicals and antioxidants. While both free radicals and antioxidants are normal and vital for processes such as cellular respiration and immunity, an imbalance could lead to cell and tissue death, DNA damage, and protein and fat degradation.
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.
The PEMF devices described in this review (Ivivi Technologies, Montvale, NJ) have been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of postoperative pain and edema and are currently available. PEMF therapy is typically used for postoperative pain management with the expectation of a significant reduction in the use of narcotics and/or nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, earlier hospital discharge, and/or an earlier return to function. As indicated in this review, PEMF may also be used in challenging cases such as irradiated tissue or other wounds in poorly vascularized tissue. In practice, PEMF is delivered via a circular coil that is always placed so that the tissue target is encompassed within the coil perimeter. The device can be applied over dressings, braces, or clothing. Treatment regimens may be manual or automatic. For postoperative use, treatment begins in the recovery room and is generally administered every 4 hours for 30 minutes for 3 days, and then every 8 hours for the next several days until pain and edema are not significant. For the treatment of chronic wounds, the regimen is 30 minutes twice a day until healed. PEMF device operation is simple and patients may easily be instructed on its use in both outpatient and home settings.
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.
In addition to its benefits on fractures displaying a failed healing response, LIPUS can substantially accelerate the rate of repair of fresh fractures. LIPUS also promotes greater bone content in fracture callus, more rapid endochondral ossification, and quicker recovery of stiffness in ovariectomy-induced osteoporotic, as well as diabetic, rats. In humans, LIPUS can reduce the time for recovery of clinical and radiographic union by 30–38%. This represents a reduction in healing time of 58, 37, and 19 days in tibial diaphyseal, distal radius, and scaphoid fractures, respectively.
More than 33% of Americans suffer from chronic pain, and people are searching for solutions other than drugs, unnecessary surgeries and deep injections to provide relief. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF or PEMT) is a non-invasive, painless treatment for various injuries, bone related conditions and pains. The treatment works by emitting a pulsating, varying intensity and frequency electromagnetic field, coming from a solenoid placed around the patient. The application of pulsed magnetic fields has, through research findings, been shown to help the body to restore normal potentials at an accelerated rate, thus aiding the healing of most wounds, regenerating tissue and reducing swelling faster.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, with other less commonly used interventions, was not included in this list, and its evidence for efficacy was therefore not assessed. However, as emphasised by Dr Pfeiffer, an evidence based evaluation of all other interventions would be of interest and could be considered for inclusion in the next round of evidence based guidelines.

The primary function of our magnetic fields in the body is to naturally increase circulation by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries. When PEMF Therapy is used, a magnetic pulse passes through the cell which enables the membrane to become charged. The cells then separate from each other which helps to promote proper circulation and an increase in cellular oxygen.

With regard to medical management, Green et al (2003) reported that for rotator cuff disease, corticosteroid injections might at times be superior to physical therapy. Buchbinder et al (2003) noted that for rotator cuff disease, subacromial steroid injection demonstrated a small benefit over placebo in some trials. Pooled results of three trials showed no benefit of subacromial steroid injection over NSAIDs. In the context of surgery it should be noted that no significant differences have been reported in outcome between arthroscopic and open subacromial decompression, although four trials did report earlier recovery with arthroscopic decompression (Coghlan et al 2008).
“Paul – Well I have put the EarthPulse through enough testing that I can confidently say the device has real merit. There was for me a trial period so as to find out what settings worked best for my recovery. This has thus far been the results of my experimentation. Deeper sleep. 80% reduced hip pain. I can now sleep without throbbing pain. You have my full endorsement. God Bless.”

Because we are partial to Bayesian analysis here at SBM, we like to consider both plausibility and clinical evidence. There is almost no plausibility to the claims being made by EMP Pad. Low power electromagnetic fields have never been shown to have clinically significant effects on animals or people. There is no way to magically “heal” cells or make them live longer, or affect overall health with simple magnetic fields.
I feel like a new person! I’m learning how to live a healthy lifestyle through videos played in the office…through the many conversations and directions given by Dr. Pacelli on a weekly basis…and through his written materials. It’s been a real wake-up call to learn about the toxins in our environment and from the foods we eat. I have no doubt my quality of life will be tremendously improved as I continue to follow the advice of Dr. Pacelli. He’s definitely knowledgeable, caring, and highly invested in helping people get well and live the life we were created to live.”

Adjuncts in diminishing the chemical reaction of the inflammatory process are rest, therapeutic modalities, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. When the inflammatory mechanism is inhibited, the patient should experience an associated decrease in pain and swelling. Success in achieving these goals has been accomplished through an array of modalities to include laser, microcurrent, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, iontophoresis, and phonophoresis.117 My (MAK) anecdotal choice of modalities to treat the acute inflamed shoulder include cryotherapy and low-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).
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.

It is this amplified electron spinning which restores the cell’s potential (its energy), regulating its volume at the same time. And, unlike some other forms of CAM, this positive cellular effect lasts for as many as four days after the treatment session has ended. With that, PEMF therapy is: The induction of electricity into the cells to help stimulate or promote healing.
