Bemer Therapy

We can go without food or water for days and still survive. But if we stop breathing, we die within minutes. Oxygen cannot be stored. It must be replenished continuously and steadily.

The blood circulation system transports oxygen all over the body, down to the smallest of cells. As we discussed in last week’s article, Sitting is the New Smoking, good blood circulation is vital for optimal health. If your blood circulation is not functioning at its best, cells and tissues don’t get enough nutrients. In addition, waste products start to build up. Over time, this starts to have an impact on your overall health.

Symptoms of Poor Blood Circulation

A poor supply of nutrients and a chronic build-up of waste products in your cells can start to show up in the following ways:

  • Stress
  • Discomfort
  • Restlessness
  • Lack of focus
  • Low energy
  • Exhaustion

These are all very general symptoms. If you were to go to your primary care doctor and complain about these issues, they would probably tell you that it is part of getting old and that you should try to get more rest. However, they can all be signs of poor blood circulation.

BEMER Therapy Improves Blood Circulation

For over two decades, Bemer Therapy technology has been improving blood circulation with a non-invasive, non-chemical mechanism that improves blood flow. A 2015 study showed that BEMER physical vascular therapy reduced pain and fatigue in the short term in patients with chronic low back pain, while long-term therapy appeared to be beneficial in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Findings from another study that focussed on dementia, showed that BEMER therapy may contribute to an improvement of blood flow to the brain. This could improve the quality of life in people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

Simply put, when your body’s cells, tissues, and organs are adequately nourished and metabolic waste products are regularly removed, your body becomes healthy and functions properly.

How does BEMER Therapy Work?

BEMER technology is simple to use. It consists of a mat-type application on which you can sit or lie down. Using electromagnetically transmitted signals, it stimulates the pumping movement of the smallest blood vessels. In an ideal situation, BEMER treatment should be applied for 8-16 minutes twice a day. Even once a day for 5 days a week will have remarkable benefits.

Is It Safe?

There are no known side effects of BEMER treatment. You generally feel relaxed while having treatment, although some may feel a slight tingle as the flow of blood improves. The amount of electromagnetic energy administered is less than that of the earth’s natural magnetism.

Sitting is the New Smoking

We all know that sitting too much and not exercising is bad for our waistline. But did you know it is also bad for your health? In fact, sitting is so bad for your health that some people say it is the new smoking. Why is sitting so damaging to our bodies? One of the reasons is that it slows down our blood circulation. Poor circulation is linked to several chronic diseases including heart disease, stroke, and respiratory disorders.

What is Blood Circulation?

We need good circulation in our bodies. Our blood vessels are our body’s transportation system: from the multi-lane highways and freeways all the way down to small streets and narrow lanes. These blood vessels are making the deliveries of food and oxygen that is vital for our organs, muscles, and tissues to be able to do their job. These same blood vessels are also taking away the garbage, the waste products our body no longer needs. Now that you have an idea of how our circulation works, imagine traffic on these roads not moving more than 25 mph. It is not a good situation. And the same goes for your blood circulation. It means that blood is not getting to where it needs to be.

Why Do We Need Good Blood Flow?

Our heart is the main pump in our body and is the driving force behind our blood circulation. In addition, when we move our bodies, the movement of our muscles puts pressure on the blood vessels and squeezes them. This helps to move the blood and fluid all around the body even down to the tips of your toes. Our blood circulation suffers when we sit all day hunched over our screens or laptops. When our circulation is impaired, it slows or blocks the blood flow. That means the cells in your body can’t get all the oxygen and nutrients they need.

Can You Improve Your Circulation?

What can you do if your job requires you to sit in front of a screen all day? Standing up every hour and moving around will help. You could also consider getting a standing desk. Obviously, exercising and working out a few times a week will improve your circulation. But what else can you do? Chiropractic is great at improving the flow of blood and fluid in your tissues. By gently adjusting and manipulating the bones in your spine and other parts of your body, the pressure on muscles and nerve tissues is released, and this allows the blood to flow more freely throughout your body.

Introducing BEMER Therapy

A great supplemental treatment to Chiropractic care that helps to improve blood circulation is BEMER Therapy. BEMER Therapy improves microcirculation and promotes the blood flow in the smallest blood vessels. Next week we will go into detail about what exactly BEMER Therapy is and why everyone should consider using it to improve their health.
