Osteoporosis

The absolute simplicity of using the BEMER, coupled with the fact that it is non-invasive, drug-free and that it improves metabolism of bone tissues and structure, as well as the overall wellbeing of the entire body, makes it the Osteoporosis treatment of choice.

The BEMER has long been used to induce a mild electrical current in the bone, which stimulates bone growth and bone healing even in the absence of mechanical weight or movement.

What effect on bone does the BEMER have?

  • Loss of bone can be slowed or prevented due to the recreation of the Piezo-electrical effect
  • Building of bone substance is possible due to the activation of the calcium metabolism and stimulation of calcium deposits in the bone
  • Indirect effects due to regulation of the hormone system, which plays a crucial role in regulating metabolism of minerals
  • Improvement of overall well-being and increased activity will have a positive impact on symptoms of Osteoporosis

What is the “Piezo-electric” effect?

The Piezo-electrical effect of the bone explains the mechanisms on which bone growth, bone structure, and bone healing are based. With mild pressure on the bone, a weak negative electrical current develops, and with a mild pulling force on the bone a weak positive electrical current is developed. These electrical impulses direct the bone growth and formation of the characteristic spongy bone through calcium deposits, and make sure that the proper kind of bone structures develop corresponding to individual anatomical patterns of movement and usage.

BEMER-therapy can be used to improve the circulation and to give general support to the body’s self-regulatory mechanisms. Through the following scientifically proven effects, BEMER therapy can lead to the improvement or stabilisation of physical well-being and can contribute significantly to the complementary treatment of osteoporosis:

  • Positive physiological effect on the condition of microcirculation, and increased Utilisation of oxygen in the capillary tissue
  • Positive effect on the protein biosynthesis (repair proteins)
  • Improved micro-hemodynamic conditions for the first steps of immunological processes, and thereby in indirect strengthening of the body’s own defense mechanisms
  • Positive effect on the autonomous nervous system

BEMER therapy is a complex method that optimises energy production by the individual cells (ATP) through improved circulation and increased oxygen utilisation, thereby contributing to the overall regulation of the body’s metabolism. It is therefore an important and essential foundation for strengthening the body’s self-healing mechanisms, supporting other treatment measures in the environment of a holistic approach, and increases effectiveness of clinical treatment concepts.

A European physician’s user study under the direction of the AFB documented the effects of the electromagnetic field of the BEMER therapy system. A total of 1116 patient protocols were captured. Since several patients presented with more than one clinical condition, 2031 cases of illness were documented. A therapy span of 6 weeks and observation of 52 subjects showed the following results.

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.

Osteoporosis is a loss of bone density that exceeds the normal age-related physiological degree. Since all bones are subject to a life-long process of bone formation and bone resorption, the condition can be caused by an abnormal slowdown of bone formation as well as an abnormal increase in bone resorption.

We differentiate between primary and secondary osteoporosis, with the primary form occurring much more frequently, like post-menopausal and senile osteoporosis. For women, the decline in estrogen after menopause seems to play a significant role. Other factors can be a lack of calcium or vitamin D, as well as well as a lack of exercise and being underweight.

Secondary osteoporosis occurs because of metabolic disorders like diabetes, over-active thyroid, and other illnesses.

Very often there are virtually no symptoms in the earlier stages, so the disease is not detected until it has progressed. Some of the first symptoms often are dull or pulling bone pain, especially in the spine. Due to the thinning of the bones’ micro-structure which gives them their stability, the vertebrae become increasingly porous and fractures of the vertebrae can result. The visible results are shrinking of height (up to 4 inches) together with a bowing of the back (kyphosis), and myogelosis, a condition in which the muscles of the back harden through bulging and knotting. In order to keep the pain at bay, affected patients adapt to a pain relieving posture over time.

Another adverse effect is the steadily increasing risk of bone fractures. The loss of bone substance diminishes the weight-bearing capacity to such an extent that even the smallest force on the bone can lead to a fracture (broken ribs when coughing, broken hip when stumbling, etc.). Since part of the normal treatment for a fracture is immobilization of the affected area, the resulting period of forced immobility and lack of exercise is detrimental especially to the elderly. Physical activity, however, is an essential variable for the regulation of metabolic activity in the cells as well as the entire body. Therefore, if there is serious limitation of physical activity due to injury, some of the important regulatory mechanism may cease. Weak metabolic conditions in the elderly combined with forced inactivity may lead to illnesses or infections that become a serious danger to their health.

It is extremely important to detect osteoporosis in its early stages, in order to avoid more advanced stages along with the accompanying complications. A number of diagnostic tools are available to the health practitioner. X-rays normally do not show a loss of bone mass unless it has reached about 30%; therefore, if osteoporosis is suspected, the more common diagnostic tools are computed tomography, digital radiography, bone density scans, and in extreme cases bone biopsies. A new method being tested is the use of ultrasound, in the hope of finding a method without damaging rays for early diagnosis.
