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
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields PEMF Therapy is recommended as a long-term application. The positive effects of PEMF Therapy last for a long period of time, but this depends fundamentally on the individual lifestyle of the user in question. The aim of the treatment is the preservation of physical capability and health until well into old age. It is less important how old one is, but rather the way in which one gets old (and with what quality of life).

Post-surgery, approximately half of the participants engaged in PEMF therapy while the other half served as a control.After evaluating the patients’ statuses at one,two, three, six, and twelve month intervals, the researchers concluded that, “There were no differences in the incidence of adverse events in the two groups, indicating that the use of PEMF stimulation is safe in this clinical setting.” It’s important to note that, although PEMF was deemed safe in this study, there was still one major difference between the group who participated in this therapy and the group that did not.


Dr. Valerie Hunt placed 2 humans in an “Mu metal cage” to test humans in a near-zero magnetic field environment where they were cut-off from the earth's natural magnetic field. In a very short period of time they began to sob and said they felt like they were “falling apart” emotionally. Shortly after they started loosing muscle control, coordination and started showing abnormal cardiac readings. This showed the critical need for the environment of the Earth's natural magnetic fields.

Through PEMF therapy, your batteries (i.e. your cells) essentially become recharged. The energy supplied via PEMF waves gives them the energy they need to ward off whatever is threatening them, whether it’s a trauma or disease-based threat. This makes it easier for your patient’s body to restore its health naturally, simply by using the electrical currents and impulses that are already interacting within and throughout their cells. In essence, high-powered PEMF is like a “battery re-charger” for your depleted cells.


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?
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.
Besides their well-known side effects like addiction and toxicity, most modern remedies for pain can only soothe pain temporarily and are ineffective for the treatment chronic pain; the underlying condition causing pain has to be resolved. Ground breaking achievements in the field of Biomagnetics seem to be paving the way for the emergence of more tenacious way to manage and reduce pain in the form of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) and heal the underlying condition at the same time.
The Earthpulse™ PEMF generator is small and portable, yet stronger than all but the large and non-portable $10,000+ pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device systems. Strong enough to effectively penetrate a 16 – 18 inch (40 – 45 cm) thick mattress. A steep enough electromagnetic pulse to induce microampere current in tissue, yet small enough to easily fit in a handbag or briefcase; at a fraction of the cost of low-energy mat based pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device systems.

"PEMF therapy applied to a 49-year-old male PD patient with stage 3 disease, as assessed by Hoehn and Yahr scale, resulted in a marked improvement in motor and non-motor symptoms such as mood swings, sleeplessness, pain and sexual and cognitive dysfunctions, suggesting that PEMF therapy should be tested in large cohorts of PD patients as monotherapy and should also be considered as a treatment modality for de novo diagnosed PD patients. PEMF therapy was also effective in improving visuospatial deficits in four PD patients. Moreover, PEMF therapy improved PD-associated freezing (a symptom manifesting as a sudden attack of immobility usually experienced during walking) in 3 PD patients".
Effects of a pulsed electromagnetic therapy on multiple sclerosis fatigue and quality of life: a double-blind, placebo controlled trial; Lappin MS; Altern Ther Health Med. 2003 Jul-Aug;9(4):38-48. This study is a follow-up to a placebo controlled pilot study in which multiple sclerosis (MS) patients exposed to weak, extremely low frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields showed significant improvements on a composite symptom measure. This study was a multi-site, double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover trial involving 117 patients with MS. Each subject received 4 weeks of the active and placebo treatments separated by a 2-week washout period. Paired t-tests were used to assess treatment differences in the 117 subjects (81% of the initial sample) who completed both treatment sessions. Improvements in fatigue and overall quality of life were significantly greater on the active device.
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.

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).

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.”
NASA (National Aeronautical and Space Administration) also saw the need to develop a means of preventing and treating bone and muscle loss of their astronauts as they explored the moon and other regions of the galaxy. Methods were developed to enhance bone retention, prevent or alleviate muscle atrophy, and enhance natural healing and regeneration whilst in a space environment with little access to conventional treatments.
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]
Our Human Bodies and all living creatures are fundamentally electric in nature. We live in the world which has a natural magnetic field and there is the global “Schumann” electromagnetic field resonances (vibrations). Our bodies naturally interact with the earth's magnetic fields and has historically evolved to be in balance with this natural phenomena. Magnetic fields affect our body chemistry at a cellular level. PEMF Therapy helps to stimulate and re-balance our bodies at the cellular level. PEMF easily passes through all our body tissues to provide this effect and is a holistic stimulation.
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.

La clarification des missions avec un repositionnement en formation initiale dans les ESPE était attendue par les PEMF, tout comme la nécessité d’accorder une décharge de service suffisante pour couvrir toutes les missions. Si le chantier a permis de redéfinir les missions en distinguant ce qui relève de la formation initiale et de la formation continue, en donnant la priorité à la formation initiale, la question du temps de décharge de service n’a pas eu de réponse. Avec un temps de décharge insuffisant et l’absence de cadrage nationale pour intégrer les PEMF dans les équipes pluri-professionnelles, rien ne garantit leur participation effective au sein des ESPE. Malgré les interventions du SNUipp-FSU pour faire évoluer le régime indemnitaire, l’indemnité de tutorat que tous les PEMF ne touchaient pas est maintenue et reste liée au suivi effectif des fonctionnaires stagiaires. Le SNUipp-FSU va continuer d’intervenir notamment dans le cadre de la réecriture de la circulaire pour que les missions des PEMF ne soient pas que reconnues mais puissent être effectives.


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.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been extensively studied by Hannemann et al. (see Chapter 23).20 With regard to pulsed low-intensity ultrasound therapy, Mayr et al. performed a single-blind randomized controlled trial with patients sustaining scaphoid fractures type B1 or B2 (Herbert classification). 29 patients (30 fractures) were divided into two groups; all patients were treated with a below-elbow cast with immobilization of the thumb until radiologic consolidation occurred. The intervention group additionally underwent a pulsed low-intensity ultrasound treatment of 20 min daily. The consolidation was assessed by a CT scan every 2 weeks. The time until consolidation was 43.2 ± 10.9 days in the intervention group, compared with 62 ± 19.2 days in the placebo group, a significant difference (P = .0055). Limitations of this study include the small groups, lacking sample size calculation, a single-blinded design, and more importantly the imprecision and unreliability of the primary outcome time until consolidation, despite the fact that evaluation by a CT-scan was performed every 2 weeks.21 No further publications considering both subjects have been found in the literature.


PEMF is clearly kin to TENS, part of the electrotherapy family. And yet it’s a different beast, much more exotic, with a more mysterious mechanism of action. PEMF is hypothesized to directly stimulate cellular repair, and not for nothing: it seems to really do that, and the effect is almost magical, speeding up bone fracture healing, and even restoring it in cases where healing has failed completely.

- 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, ...
