Essential Details & Technical Questions
What is Bemer?
Bio-Electromagnetic Energy Regulation. The working mechanism of BEMER consists of the transmission of a patented multi-dimensionally configured signal (waveform). This unique signal is transmitted into the body via an electromagnetic field meaning that it is the BEMER signal and not the electromagnetic field that acts as the “agent” that stimulates the circulatory response.
What are the physics behind the Bemer Therapy?
Electromagnetic fields arise as a result of electromagnetic interaction. In general, wherever ions or electrons are moving, i.e., where electricity is flowing, a magnetic field arises perpendicular to the flow direction. This magnetic field in turn acts on electrically charged particles.
Will Bemer therapy cause electric shock?
No. The device is subject to appropriate approvals in terms of the electrical safety of medical devices.
How does the Bemer signal go through my body?
Low-frequency pulsating magnetic fields used in magnetic field therapy diffuse at the speed of light and have wavelengths of thousands of kilometers in length. Due to these very long wavelengths they permeate all matter, including the human body. However, an electromagnetic field weakens very quickly with increased distance, losing its intensity.
Will overuse of Bemer Therapy cause any issues?
The BEMER supports the body’s natural regulating mechanisms. However, it is important to follow the recommended Basic Plan as outlined in the user manual to ensure that the appropriate levels are being used to strengthen the body’s own regulating mechanisms. The intensity levels used are based on the desired depth of penetration and are not necessarily reflective of the overall effect of BEMER Therapy.
How does Bemer work?
BEMER is designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport. Oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g., hormones) and immune cells are all transported through our blood. When our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and metabolic waste products are removed, our bodies become healthy and function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring good levels of health and fitness.
What does circulation mean?
Circulation is the transport mechanism that involves the whole body, from the largest vessels to the smallest. The capillary level is where it is crucial to maintain the exchange of nutrients and oxygen and the removal of metabolic waste products such as carbon dioxide, which accumulates because of normal cellular function. There is a huge network of extremely small blood vessels in our body, some of which are four times thinner than a strand of hair. These beds of small vessels surround all organs and tissues in the body and are vital to cellular function.
Why is proper circulation so important for a person's well-being and physical performance?
Scientific findings confirm that correctly functioning circulation is of crucial importance in ensuring a person’s well-being and physical performance. In all advanced organisms blood circulation regulates the nourishment of cells with oxygen and nutrients, the removal of waste products and many other processes.
Can the Bemer Therapy cure disease?
BEMER is not a disease-specific application. Its effect on the circulation and the resulting improvements to the supply and removal of substances to/from the body’s cells allows these cells to produce and supply increasing amounts of energy, and therefore carry out their tasks (production) in a more functional manner.
Is there any science research and/or study on Bemer?
Yes. Over the past 15 years, BEMER has been scientifically studied from several perspectives and results published. Please check out www.pubmed.gov
How does Bemer work with other treatments?
BEMER supports diverse, naturally self-regulating mechanisms and therefore a broad efficacy spectrum. No evidence exists of any dangerous side effects from long-term use. BEMER can be easily combined with all other treatment methods and suitable for the adjunctive support of conventional medical therapies. BEMER’s effects are scientifically proven and its mode of action is grounded in practice and theory, having been tried and tested over a long period of practical application. The BEMER technology and the BEMER Pro/Classic systems are tested and registered as medical devices. They are equally suited for both medical professionals and for home use by the end user.
Can I use the Bemer with metal implants, or should I consult my doctor first?
Because of the low intensity of the magnetic field used to transmit the typical Bemer signals, the Bemer can be used with all metal implants (e.g. surgical screws, discs, suture clips, etc.).
Can Bemer be used by people with electronic implants like pacemakers?
The electromagnetic fields used in BEMER technology cannot cause any faults to pacemakers or defibrillators, if the implant complies with European standard 45502-x for these implants and that the doctor uses the device correctly. [Report by Dr. Lampadius (10/25/2012).] However, check with the manufacturer of the implantable device to confirm that it will not be adversely affected by the electromagnetic field the BEMER emits. The maximum average flux density (intensity) of BEMER on its highest output level is 150 microTesla.
Are there any side effects of using Bemer Therapy?
Side effects are understood to be undesirable accompanying effects such as allergies, bleeding, etc. To date, no dangerous side effects have been detected with long-term application.
How have Bemer therapies been utilized in conventional medicine?
Bemer already forms part of conventional medicine as a complementary application. It is currently accepted by specialist medical bodies and is a key topic in medical working groups and a current object of research in a number of universities.
Will Bemer purchase be covered by my health insurance?
BEMER is not covered by health insurance. Many private health insurers have some plans for complementary medical treatments. As a result, the assumption of costs for BEMER differs between private health insurers.
What is the attitude of doctors towards Bemer?
Doctors are increasingly opting for “integrative medicine”. In this respect, Bemer is very widely accepted. Doctors and clinicians alike use Bemer in private practice as an adjunct therapeutic modality to complement conventional treatments.
How is Bemer Therapy applied?
The therapy is carried out using the whole-body application module B.BODY following a predetermined usage plan, which can improve the general circulation and the overall energy state if used daily on an ongoing basis. The twice-daily application of the BEMER following the outlined basic plan is the fundamental basis and cornerstone for systemic support to our circulation. For local applications, there are the additional modules B.SPOT, B.PAD, and B.SIT. For applications related to the skin, there is the “light application module” B.LIGHT, which can be used complementary to the B.BODY application module. The BEMER can be applied twice daily either in a professional setting or at home.
Why are there different application modules in the Bemer Pro and Classic set?
There are two aspects to the application of BEMER:
- The basis of all BEMER usage: application of the whole-body module (B.BODY) together with the basic plan for the general improvement of blood circulation and all other specified effects.
Supporting the general application and all effects through additional local stimulation in affected body regions with the B.SPOT (relatively limited area), B.PAD (larger area), and/or B.SIT (comfort cushion).
What is the Basic Plan?
The basic plan has been consistently adapted and optimized based on years of experience and considering device technologies as well as continuous user feedback. The basic plan constitutes the manufacturer’s fundamental usage recommendations, and is the basis for optimal application of BEMER Therapy.
How soon will I see results from Bemer Therapy?
Improvement in overall circulation occurs with each application and the results are cumulative. The first noticeable improvements may be detected within in a very short time of use for an individual who is in moderate to good health and longer (4-6 weeks) for those users more metabolically challenged or with chronic health concerns. The BEMER is most effective when the basic plan is followed consistently and regularly.
How frequently can Bemer be applied?
BEMER Therapy is recommended as a long-term application. The positive effects of BEMER Therapy last for a long period of time, but this depends fundamentally on the individual lifestyle of the user. The average user can expect a single application to last half a day or more.
What does Bemer feel like?
The perception of the BEMER application differs from user to user. Some users experience a light feeling of warmth or a tingling sensation. Most feel noticeably relaxed and invigorated after the application.
What is the best way to ensure Bemer Therapy works optimally?
Drink a sufficient amount of non-carbonated water to maintain an optimal fluid level.
Eat a balanced and nutritious diet. Avoid alcohol and nicotine or keep consumption to a minimum to avoid inflicting stress on the body. Carry out as much outdoor activity as possible without putting excess strain on the body.
Does Bemer Therapy work with my prescriptions and supplements?
As a preventative measure, BEMER serves to strengthen the body and improve the its innate self-regulating mechanisms. It never replaces a conventional medicinal therapy prescribed by a doctor, but in optimal cases could lead to a reduction in the dosage of prescribed medication.
Can I use Bemer during chemo treatment?
The BEMER Therapy may also be used in conjunction with both allopathic and/or naturopathic interventions, although there may be certain medications that a BEMER user should be more cautious with. For example, individuals receiving chemotherapy should always consult with their oncologist before using BEMER. BEMER is known to increase general circulation and therefore potentially enhancing clearance/detoxification of the medication. The amount of chemotherapy drug that is within the blood stream to be delivered to the target tissues is highly controlled for effectiveness (pharmacokinetics). Despite this, it may be advantageous to apply BEMER Therapy after chemotherapy to support the recovery process as conventional medicine is limited in this regard.
Can I use intensity level 10 on the B.BODY?
Level 10 use on the B.Body it is not generally recommended. The Basic Plan (outlined in the user manual) has been put together based upon the measurements of multiple people and the resultant optimal effects. Levels 7-10 are only for younger, very fit athletes. Rotation of levels 3-6 on the B.Body and application of the programs with the special applicators is recommended for general use.
Can Bemer Therapy be used on someone who has been using beta receptors long-term?
Individuals taking beta-receptor antagonists over a long term should consult with their prescribing doctor to discuss the use of BEMER, which acts upon the same region of the vessels where these receptors are present. In a few rare cases the beta-receptor antagonist may not work well with the BEMER.
Can I use Bemer with corticosteroids medication?
With corticosteroids, or for any “anti-inflammatory”, the BEMER may not have the same extent of beneficial effects. BEMER supports the natural self-regulation process in the body (inflammatory cascade) to facilitate the shift to the regeneration phase of inflammation. Corticosteroids suppress this process. While BEMER has been utilized for many years with people on these and other drugs, it is pertinent to consult with your doctor about BEMER use and to adjust medication if any heartbeat irregularities occur.
Can I use Bemer Therapy and the Magnetico bed system at the same time?
It is not recommended using BEMER simultaneously with the Magnetico or any magnetic bedding system as the magnets may have an effect on the field distribution and disrupt the action of the BEMER
Can I use Bemer Therapy after stem cell treatment?
Stem cell treatment is not a contraindication for BEMER therapy. BEMER therapy may be beneficial for patients after the stem cell treatment. The full body application (B.BODY) should be used at low level, following the Basic Plan. The local applicator(s) such as B.PAD or B.SPOT may be used right after full body application, starting with program 1. Individuals should also consult with their primary physician on post-op progression.
Can I use the Bemer application on the head?
While there is not a set rule for application of the BEMER applicators around the head region, it is recommended to limit the application to Program 1 without the plus signal.
If lower levels are desired, intensity levels 1-3, without the plus signal may also be used.
Application around the head region may be done at the same time as the B.Body or following the B.Body use.
