BEMER in treatment of Sarcoidosis
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 sarcoidosis:
- 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. BEMER therapy is an important and essential foundation for strengthening the body’s self-healing mechanisms, supporting other treatment measures, and decreasing the side effects of cortisone medications, and therefore of great value to patients with sarcoidosis.
Information about Sarcoidosis
Sarcoidosis (Boeck’s Disease) is an inflammatory disease of the supportive and connective tissues that can affect all organs (liver, spleen, skin, eyes, and heart) as well as the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints). It causes the development of granulomas, which are masses resembling little tumours. They are made up of clumps of cells from the immune system. In almost all cases of the disease, the lymph nodes near the lungs are involved and in over 90% the lungs themselves.
The causes of the disease are still unclear. Besides a disturbance of the immune system due to inhaled substances (recent discussions focus on an infection with certain kinds of mycobacteria), a genetic defect seems to be a factor in increasing the risk for the disease.
Sarcoidosis can be categorised into acute and chronic forms. Diagnosis is often difficult or delayed because the first symptoms are of a non-specific nature, like general malaise, decrease in energy, fatigue and flu-like symptoms.
As the disease progresses a persistent cough and shortness of breath become apparent, along with symptoms of other affected organs like changes in and spots on the skin, eye infections and reduced vision, and cardiac rhythm disturbances caused by inflammation of the heart muscle, etc.
There are 3 stages to the progress of the disease, which manifest themselves markedly in the lungs. The initial stage is characterized by swelling of the hilus lymph nodes and inflammation of the alveoli (or the mesenchym respectively). The increased reaction of the immune system to these inflammations leads to the next stage of the disease with development of additional granulomas. The 3rd (last) stage is characterized by scar tissue in the granulomas, and in some cases fibromas.
Acute sarcoidosis often proceeds in episodes and disappears on its own within a few weeks or months in over 90% of the cases. The chronic form of the disease has a promising prognosis as well. In order to prevent progression of the disease to the 3rd stage, which is accompanied by an irreversible formation of scar tissue in the connective tissues, a timely intervention based on regular check-ups is required.
