Alzheimer’s disease: improvement of visual memory and visuoconstructive performance by treatment with picotesla range magnetic fields; Sandyk R; Int J Neurosci. 1994 Jun;76(3-4):185-225. The author had previously reported that external application of electromagnetic fields (EMF) of extremely low intensity (in the picotesla range) and of low frequency (in the range of 5Hz-8Hz) improved visual memory and visuoperceptive functions in patients with Parkinson's disease. Since a subgroup of Parkinsonian patients, specifically those with dementia, have coexisting pathological and clinical features of AD, the author investigated in two AD patients the effects of these extremely weak EMF on visual memory and visuoconstructive performance. The Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure Test as well as sequential drawings from memory of a house, a bicycle, and a man were employed to evaluate the effects of EMF on visual memory and visuoconstructive functions, respectively. In both patients treatment with EMF resulted in a dramatic improvement in visual memory and enhancement of visuoconstructive performance which was associated clinically with improvement in other cognitive functions such as short term memory, calculations, spatial orientation, judgement and reasoning as well as level of energy, social interactions, and mood. The report demonstrates, for the first time, that specific cognitive symptoms of AD are improved by treatment with EMF of a specific intensity and frequency. The rapid improvement in cognitive functions in response to EMF suggests that some of the mental deficits of AD are reversible being caused by a functional (i.e., synaptic transmission) rather than a structural (i.e., neuritic plaques) disruption of neuronal communication in the central nervous system.
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.
Centuries later, during the Middle Ages, use of these types of stones was again recorded, thistime referring to them as “lodestones” which were placed upon the patient’s body in an effort to achieve greater health. Then, in the late 1800s, science increased our understanding of electrons and electro-magnetism, prompting healthcare professionals to consider using magnetism and electricity for a number of different ailments, ranging from an inability to sleep to actual physical convulsions.
Some people report a mild headache after their first few PEMF therapy sessions. Since Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields stimulate neurons1 and enhance cellular repair2, these effects are temporary and are a small cost to pay for the repair that takes place. Eventually, the pain relief3 effects start appearing after the user is acclimatized to the magnetic field. Others report no such symptoms and take to PEMF like fish to water with zero negative side effects of PEMF therapy.
EVS : Les EVS, emplois de vie scolaire, ont été recrutés à la rentrée 2006 pour aider aux travaux matériels et administratifs dans les écoles. Ils ne peuvent pas être utilisés pour enseigner ou éduquer auprès des enfants mais peuvent occasionnellement faire acte de surveillance. C'est un dispositif d'aide au retour vers l'emploi, donc réservé en priorité aux bénéficiaires du RMI.
I was scared. The doctor said, “There is a very large ‘something’ in your abdomen.” My world stopped. I went to my husband’s office next to mine, and I sat down and started crying. I underwent surgery to remove the tumor. It wasn’t until later I learned how important nutrition is. I learned you have to be diligent, but there is something that you can do.
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…
The biophysical mechanism(s) of interaction of PEMF on biologic tissues and the biologic transduction mechanism(s) have been vigorously studied.27 One of the first models created was a linear physicochemical approach,22,24,27,28 in which an electrochemical model of the cell membrane was employed to predict a range of PEMF waveform parameters for which bioeffects might be expected. The most generally accepted biophysical transduction step is ion/ligand binding at cell surfaces and junctions that modulate a cascade of biochemical processes, resulting in the observed physiologic effect.25,29–31 A unifying biophysical mechanism that could explain the vast range of reported results and allow predictions of which PEMF signals and exposures are likely to induce a clinically meaningful physiologic effect has been proposed.22,28 The general application of this approach led to the BGS signal in use today. However, that signal is often only marginally effective because further dose quantification needed specific knowledge of the ion, the target site, its binding kinetics, and the cascade involved.
The development of modern PEMF has followed two separate pathways. The first pathway originated in more conventional (and still useful) electromagnetic field technologies broadly known as radio frequency (RF) diathermy.4 Continuous RF produces heat, the therapeutic component frequently employed in physical therapy. One early user of diathermy suspected that it could produce a nonthermal biologic effect.5 To test this idea clinically, the RF signal was intermittently pulsed, thereby eliminating heat. Positive outcomes, especially in treating inflammatory conditions, were reported.5 The first therapeutic RF PEMF device, the Diapulse, was commercialized in 19506 and was eventually cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the postoperative treatment of pain and edema in soft tissue. Clinical devices in use since that time typically have consisted of a large signal generator and a bulky coil applicator positioned over the area of injury that delivers therapy noninvasively, through either dressings or clothing. Early devices were expensive, nonportable, and produced significant electromagnetic interference (EMI); these factors restricted more widespread use in outpatient and home settings.
Curating this bibliography since 2002 has contributed to our designing the most powerful, yet portable PEMF therapy devices for sale anywhere. Routine night-long EarthPulse™ PEMF therapy through your existing mattress enhances the sleep process, radically accelerates short & long term recovery, slows down the aging process and radically increases strength & stamina with no effort whatsoever.
Je n'évalue de toute façon quasiment plus rien de manière formelle. Sur les conseils de notre inspecteur, tout le monde est passé à une évaluation continue à travers les exercices quotidiens et l'observation et la connaissance fine que nous avons de nos élèves. Dans le cadre de la numération et du calcul, les test de fin de série me permettent effectivement de situer l'élève. Soit il a réussi, et il continue. Soit il a raté, et on revoit la notion. Qui finit donc par être acquise (sauf cas de difficulté profonde).
