RESULTS: Sixty-six patients were included, and 60 completed the study. After 1 month, PEMF induced a significant reduction in VAS pain and WOMAC scores compared with placebo. Additionally, pain tolerance, as expressed by PPT changes, and physical health improved in PEMF-treated patients. A mean treatment effect of -0.73 (95% CI - 1.24 to - 0.19) was seen in VAS score, while the effect size was -0.34 (95% CI - 0.85 to 0.17) for WOMAC score. Twenty-six per cent of patients in the PEMF group stopped NSAID/analgesic therapy. No adverse events were detected.

Martin grew up working with his father, Maurice Bales, at Bales Scientific, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of medical devices. Maurice’s first two machines were infrared cameras — the same model that Martin uses in his practice today. His father’s second invention and popular medical device was the Photonic Stimulator — the machine used for photon therapy.Martin decided he liked working with patients, so he decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine — acupuncture, Chinese herbology, and other modalities.Over the course of Pacific College’s 4-year master’s program, Martin studied the effects of photon therapy in combination with acupuncture for pain management. He was very impressed with the results and now offers this innovative combination therapy at the Center for New Medicine.Dr. Bales has worked extensively with cancer patients, starting with a 1 year internship on the Oncology floor of Rady Children’s hospital in San Diego. At Center For New Medicine and Cancer Center for Healing, Dr. Bales runs the Photon, Class IV Laser, PEMF, and Acupuncture therapies for Cancer patients. These therapies provide both primary and adjunctive-focused treatments to address increasing bioavailability of Hyperbaric Oxygen and IV therapies and providing non-invasive pain management when needed.
* Dans la circulaire du 7 octobre 1866, le Ministre de l'Instruction Publique Victor Duruy parlait déjà au sujet de l'enseignement de la grammaire de "compter, dans cet exercice, encore plus sur cette logique et cette grammaire naturelle qu'ils portent en eux que sur le vieux bagage d'abstractions et de formules dont on accable leur mémoire sans profit pour leur intelligence."
They can be. Evidence is mounting that a new form of pollution called “electrosmog” is a very real threat because it is disruptive to cell metabolism. Manmade, unnatural EMFs come from electrical wiring and equipment, for example, power lines, communications towers, computers, TVs, cell phones – everything from the wiring in our homes to fluorescent lighting to microwave ovens, hair dryers, clock radios, electric blankets and more.
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.
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.
Senbursa et al (2007) compared a home programme of rotator cuff and scapular strengthening exercises, active range of motion, and stretching with 12 sessions of glenohumeral soft tissue and joint mobilization, ice application, stretching and strengthening exercises in patients with impingement. At 4 weeks there were significant between group differences with regard to pain and function favouring the manual therapy group. Kachingwe et al (2008) showed significant changes with regard to pain, pain-free range of motion, and function for patients with impingement treated with 6 sessions of supervised exercise only, supervised exercise with glenohumeral grade I–IV glide and traction mobilizations from midrange, supervised exercise with a Mulligan mobilization with movement (MWM) shoulder flexion technique, or a control group receiving only physician advice; there were no between-group differences. Although power in this pilot study was extremely limited, the three intervention groups had a greater improvement in function and both manual therapy groups improved more with regard to pain measures. Active range of motion increased most for the MWM and least for the mobilization group.
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.
However, simply because I haven’t found a negative to PEMF treatment, it doesn’t mean there isn’t one, it simply means I couldn’t find it. But for now, it looks like a simple way to help your body recharge and work at an optimal level, so I will not boycott it. If you do choose to use it, please leave a comment or let me know how you got on, I’d love to hear from you!
METHODS: In this randomized [with equal randomization (1:1)], double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, patients with radiographic evidence of knee OA and persistent pain higher than 40 mm on the visual analog scale (VAS) were recruited. The trial consisted of 12 h daily treatment for 1 month in 60 knee OA patients. The primary outcome measure was the reduction in pain intensity, assessed through VAS and WOMAC scores. Secondary outcomes included quality of life assessment through the 36-item Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form version 2 (SF-36 v2), pressure pain threshold (PPT) and changes in intake of NSAIDs/analgesics.
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
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain, also caused by arthritis and osteoporosis, may disappear completely.
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.
“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!!”
Recently, I've started using it consistently for longer times, keeping it on through several cycles of the PD drugs. In doing so, I've found that this can reduce the prolonged "off" periods in which the drugs wear off completely. Thus, consistent use of the device is helping to keep pain and rigidity symptoms at bay, and to also extend the time of action of each dose too, allowing a lower drug burden overall. I also therefore get less, and less severe, dyskinesia - the large scale uncontrolled wriggling movements which long term use of the PD drugs tends to cause (side-effect of medication).
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.
Changes in blood pressure, skin electrical resistance, and pulse amplitude in 163 oncology patients exposed to tumor-specific PEMF frequencies have also been reported suggesting that PEMF therapy does not only target neoplastic cells, but may also have systemic effects. However, long-term PEMF treatment has been shown to be non-toxic, and employs 100,000 times lower frequencies as compared with radiofrequency ablation that is also employed for treatment of many cancers.
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.
Bone regeneration can be accelerated in osteotomies made 3.5–4.5 cm distal to the head of the fibula in dogs. A voltage field was induced in the fibula by inductively coupling pulsed electromagnetic fields of low frequency and strength directly to the bone across the skin. Not only did the stimulated osteotomies heal faster than control osteotomies but the regenerated bone was also more highly organized and stronger than control regenerated bone, even though the mass of callus formed was less than in controls. This method has been used to successfully treat tibial pseudoarthroses in young patients. Pseudoarthrosis is a rare, local bone dysplasia that has a very low probability of correction by conventional techniques. Pulsed electromagnetic fields have also been used as a noninvasive postoperative treatment for lumbar vertebral fusion.
A simple way to understand the how EMFs impact our cells is comparing the EMF to a battery charger and our body to a large number of small batteries (our cells). Every battery is made to operate properly within a certain voltage range. If you overcharge the battery it will burn out, this is similar to what happens to our cells when exposed to high frequency EMFs our cells are not compatible with. In comparison if you use the correct Battery Charger voltage the battery will charge properly, this is what the correct PEMF does for our cells. PEMFs charges our cells with the energy they are designed to operate at and need to operate at their maximum potential. BAD EMF's will burn out our body cells and other illness's will cause effectively a discharging of our body cell's.
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.
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.
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)

We bought this through Amazon and have had it about 2 months. Here is the deal: This does work. Yes, it is low power compared to the high power (MagnaWave, Pulse, Curatron, etc.) systems. Those I believe are useful for injuries and seriously infirm people - broken bones, Parkinsons, diabetes, etc. Those will also detox your body very quickly, sometimes leading to herxhiemer effects, flu-like symptoms, acute exhaustion as your body deals with toxins released from your cells. THIS system will give you energy, relieve chronic low-level arthritis, minor injuries and minor neuropathy. You will generally NOT deal with strong detox from the OMI-Mat, as it's lower power. The trick with the OMI-Mat is that you MUST use it 20-30 mins EVERY day for at least 3-4 days (on program P-1, in the morning or early afternoon) BEFORE you notice the effects. I did, and realized that I literally "just wasn't tired anymore" at the end of the day. Gave me energy to keep working late, WITHOUT exhaustion. This is the REAL deal and it works wonders if you give it a chance. You can miss a day or two during usage, but after a while, at least for me, the effects wear off somewhat. But, if you use the energy to start exercising, to "get over the hump" if you will, then capitalize on your use of this and move into better health and even more energy. If you are elderly and homebound or sedentary, this can be the most important tool for better circulation and energized blood. There is nothing close in this price range.
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.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEFM) Therapy is not a disease-specific therapy. Its effect on the microcirculation and the resulting improvements to the supply and removal of substances to/from the body’s cells allows these cells to produce and supply increasing amounts of energy and therefore in turn carry out their tasks (production) better. This “production increase” and the resulting increased supply to cell products allow the body to reactivate its control cycles, meaning that the body helps itself and can promote the healing process.
In all advanced organisms, blood circulation regulates the nourishment of cells with oxygen and nutrients, the removal of waste products, vital information about hormones and chemical messengers, immune defenses and many other processes. The performance and functionality of every individual body cell and of muscles, joints, organs, glands and the immune system etc. depend on the optimal supply and removal by means of microcirculation.
Enseignement constructiviste : L'enseignement constructiviste est une approche de l'enseignement dans laquelle l'élève est acteur de son propre apprentissage. L'enseignement constructiviste part du principe que l'élève a déjà des représentations (parfois fausses) sur ce qu'on souhaite lui enseigner et qu'elles peuvent bloquer la transmission du savoir. L'enseignant doit donc commencer la séance en faisant ressortir ces représentations et en mettant en place des situations qui invitent les élèves à les remettre en cause ou à les compléter. Cette remise en cause conduit à des situations de recherche et des échanges parfois enflammés entre les élèves. Une fois que ces recherches et ces échanges ont permis de construire un savoir plus élaboré, on procède à une phase dite d'institutionnalisation, c'est à dire que ce qui a été trouvé par une partie des élèves est validé par le groupe et évidemment par l'enseignant comme étant un savoir nouveau. La trace écrite de ce savoir nouveau est établie en faisant participer les élèves et devient alors une leçon. Comme cet enseignement prend pleinement en compte la grande différence qui existe d'un élève à l'autre, la préparation des leçons demande plus de réflexion et de travail que pour un enseignement transmissif.
