Electromagnetic field therapy, which can be used optimally with the BEMER, is complex. This therapeutic method not only improves the circulation and the oxygen supply, but is also beneficial for metabolism. The following general effects of the BEMER Therapy are significant for the treatment of allergic illnesses, i.e. for the stabilisation and optimisation of the immune system:
- The blood circulation is improved.
- The oxygen concentration is increased.
- The metabolism of the cells is better regulated.
- The immune system is boosted
Additional positive results can be achieved through the anti-inflammatory, anti-edematosic, and congestive effects that occur due to the activation of the repair proteins and the optimisation of the wound-healing processes.
The harmonising/relaxing effects on the autonomous nervous system and the bronchial musculature are significant factors in the reduction of bronchial hyperreagibility.
BEMER Therapy is consistently successful in strengthening the self-healing abilities of the organism, to support accompanying measures and possibly to reduce the side effects of medicamentous therapies.
The effects of the BEMER Therapy have been documented in a study on humans conducted by doctors under the auspices of the Academy for Bioenergetics. In total 2031 cases of illness were evaluated of which 283 cases are shown in the graph below. The average therapy lasted for a period of 6 weeks.
NB: is it important to note that as the therapy was extended after the initial 6 weeks, the ‘no change’ percentage decreased and the ’complaint free’ percentages increased.
Information about Allergies
Allergies result from an overreaction of the body’s own immune system to certain substances. In principle, any substance in our environment, nourishment or medication can serve as a trigger of an allergy. Based on current estimates, it is assumed that 15% of the population of the industrialised world reacts allergically to one or more substances, and that there exist approximately 20 000 substances that can serve as an elicitor.
The immune system’s function is to recognise and eliminate any potentially harmful substances, e.g. viruses, bacteria and other causes of illness. Allergies are the result of a defect in the system, i.e. it overreacts to some substances that are not dangerous (e.g. pollen, cosmetics, food).
The body is exposed to relatively harmless substances (allergens) through the breathing system, the digestive system, or body contact. The immune system mistakenly identifies them as a danger and produces antibodies that attach themselves to the supposedly dangerous substances and neutralises them. The combination of antibodies and allergens cause the body’s cells to burst and release histamine. Histamine is a cue to the walls of the blood vessels to widen and become porous so that entire cells can pass through them. Normally this is a very useful function, enabling the antibodies to reach the site of the foreign substances and to eliminate them. Aside from the unnecessary formation of antibodies, the histamine released is so strong that, depending on the location of the allergens, the typical or local allergic complaints occur. The typical, general complaints are evident when the allergic reactions occur in the blood circulation. These affect the heart-circulation system, which reacts by accelerating the heart-beat frequency and lowering the blood pressure. The most extreme and life-threatening reactions can lead to anaphylactic shock.
Local allergic reactions occur at the point of contact with the allergens. The range of symptoms is extraordinarily broad.
The basic causes of allergies have still not been satisfactorily clarified. Frequently it is hereditary, although this does not appear to play a major role in the outbreak of the allergies. Further causes range from environmental toxins to exaggerated hygienic behavior, learned during childhood, which lessens the training effect for the immune system.
The chief method of combating allergies is the avoidance of the substances that trigger the allergy. This is easily achievable with contact allergies to particular substances and foods. It is much more difficult to hinder the inhalation of allergens, e.g. pollen, dust, etc.
