The main layer of ThermoGem 3 Gems Mini Mat 20 components system consists of thousands of Untreated, Unpainted, 100% Natural Tumbled Crystals of Purple Amethyst ( 2 lb ) from South America, Natural Green Jade from China Xiuyan county ( 0.8 lb ), Natural (not ceramic) Black Tourmaline from China Lingshou county ( 0.8 lb ) and 38 hexagon shaped Ceramic Tourmaline disks. Mini has 12 x 660 Nm Wavelength Red Light LEDs and 3 x PEMF Coils with 50-100 Gauss intensity 10Hz Pulsation Bio Magnetic Fields
PEMF has also shown positive effects with Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s, cancer, heart disease, depression, diabetes, endometriosis, epilepsy, headaches, glaucoma, hepatitis, kidney problems, lung disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s, sexual disorders, sleep disorders, spinal cord injury, stroke, Tourette’s, ulcers, urinary problems, and more.
When it comes to joints, arthritis is often one of the biggest concerns. However, PEMF helps not only with arthritic symptoms, but also potentially the cause as one piece of research in the Indian Journal of Experimental Biology found that “the use of PEMF for arthritis cure has conclusively shown that PEMF not only alleviates the pain in the arthritis condition but it also affords chondroprotection, exerts anti-inflammatory action and helps in bone remodeling.” 4

Thousands of research studies have shown that PEMF therapy promotes healthy cell function. This is likely because PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field  therapy stimulates electrical charges in the cell and creates an improved energy supply, which then reactivates and revitalises cells whose function has been restricted: This becomes even more vital for those of us over our 50's and older!

More recently our bodies have been bombarded with unnatural and harmful EMF's. As well we are working and living in unnatural environments which block the natural earth emf's (which we need). This is a similar experience of astronauts in space who were affected by the lack of the natural earths emf's and then negatively affected. With all this advent of “modern” technology now we require these other methods of PEMF Therapy to help bring our bodies back into balance. And there are many other things (pollutants, improper nutrition, and many others) which take the body out of its natural balance where PEMF Therapy is essential. The other factors such as proper nutrition etc.still need to be addressed.

The list of conditions that have been studied using PEMF therapy is extensive and the research continues today. Pulsed electromagnetic field mats have become a more commonly used device in the last 5 years, and studies have shown that it has been a welcome change for those who are unable to find relief from other therapies, or when surgical procedures have failed.

It is important to note that PEMF effects are immediate and are not limited by pharmacokinetics because the induced currents are instantaneously present when the coil applicator is transmitting into the affected area. For example, studies designed to assess PEMF effects on pain and edema in a carrageenan rat hind paw model have reported a 100% inhibition of pain and a 50% reduction of edema in treated animals over a time span of 225 minutes62 compared with aspirin or nitroaspirin, which only caused about 50% pain inhibition at 200 minutes, using maximum dose in the same model.63 It is also important to note that resting cells (in homeostasis), in which there is no transient increase in cytosolic free Ca2+, do not appear to respond to PEMF, providing one explanation for the reports of no known side effects from PEMFs since the clearance of BGS devices in 1979.
“He was in shock. After 40 years he was able to wiggle his toes and flex his foot with very little pain! I had him walk a little. He could do so without the use of his cane at a better pace than before. It has now been a week later. He can still flex his foot/toes and walk without the use of his cane. Even up and down stairs. Houston we have his attention!!”

"In October 2008 the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of PEMF therapy for treatment of major depressive disorder in PD patients who failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from very high dosages of antidepressant medications. Several studies reported PEMF therapy improved cognitive functions and motor symptoms. For example, an investigation involving three elderly PD patients with cognitive impairment assessed the effect of PEMF therapy on a disorder of the body image in which the patient perceives a part or parts of his body as disproportionately large. After receiving PEMF therapy, PD patients’ drawings showed reversal of macrosomatognosia (assessed by Draw-a-Person test) with reduction of the right parietal lobe dysfunction." 

Figure 6 illustrates typical configurations of the PEMF units used in aesthetic surgery. Figure 6, A has a dual coil applicator for breast surgery. Figure 6, B demonstrates a single coil that is used for local pain relief following abdominoplasty in which the experience of one of the authors (BS) has shown that postoperative pain and edema is rapidly resolved and patients are ready for discharge on the first postoperative day following abdominoplasty for massive weight loss.
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.
Good Health, well-being and life in general depend on a functional micro-circulation, the blood flow in the tiniest blood vessels of our bodies, the capillaries. It is exclusively there where nutrients and oxygen, metabolic waste products and carbon dioxide are exchanged with all of the body’s cells. This microcirculatory system represents about 74% of our bodies’ entire network of blood vessels and is therefore one of the most important factors for normal, healthy body function. As we age, our capillaries become less perfused, and the flow of blood to the cells slows. The result is an increased risk of disease, fatigue and premature aging. However, we are able to significantly influence this process with PEMF Technology.
While in the past people relied solely on the information and education of their doctor, today’s consumers hold the power of the internet to educate themselves and access beneficial information outside of their doctors scope of knowledge. Today’s health-focused consumers now have the ability to empower themselves with accurate, up-to-date information so they can determine which health devices are worthwhile and helpful, and which ones are expensive wastes of money and time.
The initial development of PEMF technology and its evolution over most of the last century was marred by poor presentation and, in many cases, insufficient knowledge of the scientific basis of action. However, plastic and reconstructive surgeons have been early adopters of the therapy and pioneers, along with their basic science colleagues, in developing what is now a significant and rigorous body of evidence around the mechanism of action. In this review, we describe the history, development, and eventual transformation of a marginal therapy into a technology that, should it fulfill its promise, will become a standard part of surgical care and may lead to other, more significant therapies for a variety of acute and chronic conditions.
- je consacre le début de la séance aux CP. Découverte d'une notion ou explication du travail, par ex. Je précise grosso modo le temps que cela va me prendre pour que les CE1 et les CE2 sachent dans combien de temps je serai disponible. Ceux qui rencontrent des difficultés pendant ce temps vont trouver les copains. Et c'est très satisfaisant pour l'ambiance de classe (on le ressent quand, au cours du conseil hebdomadaire, un élève en remercie un autre pour l'avoir aidé dans son travail.), c'est valorisant pour celui qui aide, c'est un gain de temps, ...
