    BEMER

    WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO DO TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH?
    INTRODUCING THE BEMER – BIO ELECTRO MAGNETIC ENERGY SYSTEM

    BEMER is the abbreviation for Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation and is the result of the highest level of research and development in the field of electro-magnetic applications.  BEMER delivers a unique, patented and extremely broad-band impulse with low intensity, direct current which creates an electro-magnetic field that has been shown to enhance human microcirculation.  Activation of the body’s own regenerative ability is the BEMER’s key to preventative care.

    Microcirculation is the flow of blood through the smallest of capillaries in the body.  At this microscopic level each cell is supplied with nutrients, including oxygen, from arterial blood, while it simultaneously releases wastes and toxins for removal through the venous blood and lymph vessels. These activities are basic to the life of a cell and essential to strengthening our natural defense mechanisms.  Circulation is extremely important to our health; consequences of blocked flow anywhere in our bodies can be devastating.  The BEMER action opens blocked capillaries to allow natural healing to happen.

    Every day we experience stress in hundreds of forms -- environmental toxins, poor nutrition, sedentary habits, dehydration, addictions, breathing difficulty, sleep deprivation, excess sound/noise and the list goes on.  By promoting better circulation, BEMER improves by more than 15% the delivery of nutrients to your cells and the efficiency of removing waste products.  This helps our cells to do their many varied activities:  metabolism, self-healing through the reduction of swelling and inflammation (pain), creating ATP (the cell’s energy molecule), all brain, muscle, organ and gland functions and much more.
