The following effects of BEMER are of great importance for the treatment of migraines:
- Improvement of circulation
- Increase of oxygen concentration in the blood
- Improvement of the viscosity of the blood
- Activation of metabolism in the cells
- Improvement of function, differentiation and regeneration of cells
Effects on blood vessels and nervous system:
- Activation of the body’s own carbon monoxide systems
- Improvement of the micro circulation in the muscles and the brain
- Improvement of the metabolism in the brain
- Improvement of the central regulation processes and feed-back mechanisms
Electromagnetic therapy with the BEMER stimulates complex processes, which not only improves the circulation and oxygenation of the blood, but also activates the all-over metabolism. In addition, we recommend balanced nutrition, sufficient exercise, and elimination of individual risk factors.
A physicians` User Study conducted in Europe with the BEMER system includes all treatments and results based on therapy duration of at least 4 weeks, or where a significant improvement was recorded earlier than 4 weeks. The number of valid protocols so recorded was 1116. As there were patients with multiple ailments, the total evaluation comprised 2031 illness conditions. The average therapy duration comprised 6 weeks. The following results are from this user study (313 cases over 6 weeks):
NB: is it important to note that as BEMER therapy is continued over time , the ‘no change’ percentages decrease and the ’complaint free’ percentages increase. Information about Migraines
Migraines are suddenly occurring severe headaches, mostly limited to one side of the head. The pain, which is piercing, pounding, and torturing, usually begins in the area of the forehead or temple and spreads over half of the skull. In some cases the pain may be felt over the entire head. Migraines can last for several hours to several days, and are often accompanied by nausea, sensitivity to light and/or disturbances of vision. Sometimes there are also muscle cramps, weakness in one arm, or noises in an ear or both.
The migraine attack can be caused by fluctuations in the blood flow of the vessels in the brain. First there is a brief, spastic constriction of the blood vessels, which causes a lack of oxygen in the tissues and produces pain. "Pain is the cell screaming for oxygen". This leads to widening of the arteries, as well as to the activation of a number of biochemical processes, which causes further pain. The disposition toward migraines seems to be hereditary.
Many of those affected can name initiating factors:
Foods that tax liver function like chocolate, certain kinds of cheeses, fatty substances, and alcohol; for women hormonal changes during the monthly cycle and pregnancy; physical or psychological demands; environmental influences like weather or bright light, or stress. Many patients with migraines suffer from a prolonged stress level. When this is over and a period of relative relaxation begins, they experience a migraine attack (e.g. weekends, vacations, or after an important decision has been made).
