Mental fitness is closely tied to physical health. And it is precisely here that BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy contributes considerably to positively encouraging a healthy and balanced diet and regular physical exercise. BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is no substitute for a fountain of youth, but it does offer the means to remain mentally agile as we grow older and to tackle the challenges that our work and private lives present. Overall, this creates a much better quality of life.
Is there scientific proof of the effectiveness of BEMER therapy?
Over the past 15 years, there have been 46 publications and 12 scientific studies published in PubMed on the topic of BEMER therapy. The available study results reveal that BEMER Therapy has been shown to provide protection and prophylactic effects. The effectiveness of BEMER in wound healing, performance increases and also in regeneration has been proven in numerous double-blind trials.
A fountain of youth for eternal youth and health?
The desire for a fountain of youth as a source of eternal youth, health and long-lasting mental capacity is surely as old as mankind itself. But as wonderful such a dream of eternal youth is, it is one that will unfortunately never come true. Nature has set natural limits on our lifespan. A key role here is played by our heart, the central organ of the cardiovascular system. It pumps and distributes blood throughout our body, no rest, no interruptions, every minute, hour and day – from the day we are born to the day we die. An adult's heart rate (the number of heart beats a minute) is approximately 60 to 80. With each heart beat, around 60 to 70 ml of blood is pumped into the aorta. If we assume an average life expectancy of 70 years for calculating heart performance, this works out as 200 to 250 million liters of blood transported with the aid of 2.5 billion heart beats. Microcirculation plays a key role in ensuring that this work is to the benefit of the body.
Significance of Microcirculation
Microcirculation is very important to our organism. It represents a major reservoir of blood, affects blood pressure, facilitates heat exchange, and transports oxygen and nutrients to the cells. In return, waste products and toxins are removed from the cells. This makes microcirculation part of the circulatory system, which includes the smallest blood vessels (capillaries, arterioles, venules). However, this too is subject to the limits of nature, because the performance of microcirculation declines with age. This is also related to a reduction in mental capacity, affecting among other things perception, memory, learning, problem-solving, attentiveness and creativity. Even if some don't notice it, declines in mental capacity often begin as early as in the third decade of life, even if this is usually unnoticeable. The first signs manifest themselves in the form of declining concentration and mental strain, symptoms that can have fatal results in our high-performance society. This applies not only to our professional lives, but also to our private lives and interpersonal relationships, because mental balance also plays a major role here. It is particularly fatal when impairments of the microcirculation prove a problem during an apprenticeship or degree.
Can mental capacity be influenced for the better by means of improved microcirculation?
Microcirculation is a natural process that can be influenced by a range of factors. Examples of this are a healthy and balanced diet, sufficient and peaceful sleep, and plenty of exercise. But often, these factors stand in opposition to the effects of our society's dependence on prosperity – constant pressure to perform, longer working hours, increasing and sustained stresses of professional and everyday life, air pollution, environmental toxins, and noise. When we add nicotine, alcohol and drugs to this, we see the high levels of risk that the microcirculation is exposed to. High blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and diabetes are also typical factors of a dysfunctional microcirculation. Result: Restricted or dysfunctional microcirculation causes cells to age more quickly and the immune system to weaken, which in turn causes a high susceptibility to infections, poorer defense against free radicals, and impaired mental capacity. This shows how, overall, restricted microcirculation is the cause of many diseases and malaises. A restricted flow of blood through the microvessels can manifest itself in a wide variety of symptoms. If, for example, the flow of blood through the brain is affected, this can cause a decline in memory and concentration. Dizziness and tinnitus can also be results of impaired microcirculation. Ultimately, however, microcirculatory disorders affect the entire body, thereby critically affecting our health and ability to perform. This affects not only older people, but also younger people where risk factors are present. This can quickly result in serious problems, because younger people in particular are expected to demonstrate high mental performance and mental capacity in an increasingly demanding professional environment. Concentration, attentiveness, problem-solving capabilities, word finding and the ability to reach conclusions are also important in all walks of life.
Age and Mental Capacity
As previously stated, a decline in capacity occurs from around the age of 30. Average curves generated from intelligence tests provide information on this. These show that our mental capacity rises until around the age of 16. This refers not to an intelligence based on knowledge, but rather on the ability to think logically and solve problems. The mental viability remains at this level for around 10 to 15 years until it experiences a constant decline from around the age of 30. But regardless of your age, action must be taken when the first signs of mental impairment start to show, especially when this is caused by a dysfunction or restriction of the microcirculation.
Action must be taken if microcirculation is restricted.
It is certainly no easy thing to change your lifestyle so radically to ensure positive changes to the microcirculation. And just as a fountain of youth remains a dream, so too are we still exposed to negative environmental effects. But this is no cause to give up, because medical engineering has also made progress in the field of microcirculation, advances that would have been unthinkable decades ago. The BEMER GROUP has laid milestones in physical vascular therapy. Ground-breaking knowledge of biorhythmics in local and overarching microcirculatory regulation processes has been gained from years of work. This knowledge has been applied to BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy. This vascular therapy supports the natural reactive capability of the immune system and strengthens the body's own regulatory mechanisms to activate its self-healing powers, thereby providing support for the healing of wounds and injuries and all regenerative processes in the organism. BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy also has a positive effect on the aforementioned processes of concentration and attentiveness, word finding and the ability to reach conclusions.
At the core of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is a multidimensional signal structure that provides effective stimulation for restricted or dysfunctional microcirculation. It supports the body's key control mechanisms for prevention, healing, recovery and regeneration processes. It is BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy that generates improvements in microcirculation.
Which diseases of a dysfunctional microcirculation can be eased using BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy?
Remarkable successes with BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy have been achieved with
* Back pain,
* Sleeping disorders,
* Bone fractures,
* Metabolic disorders,
* Stress-related disorders,
* Disorders of the immune system and
It also helps achieve a noticeable increase in mental capacity. Even if mental capacity is not necessarily related to a primary disease, it is a factor that significantly affects the quality of life of a person.
Health and Preventative Medicine
Our health is a valuable asset and a key requirement for well-being and happiness. Good health is a gift that should be treated with care and respect. Unfortunately, too many people don't recognize the value of this gift until they get sick. But there is certainly a lot you can do to maintain your health, because many diseases have a preventable history. Strategic preventative healthcare enables our state of good health to be maintained and nurtured, possibly even into old age. And even if we are sick, the effects of many diseases can be reduced if we can recognize the risks associated with them early enough. But what about in our youth? As fatalistic as it sounds, many people insure themselves in their youth against many risks, including accidents, loss of income in old age, unemployment, sickness, vacation risks and much more. But these are usually protection from financial risks. But protecting our health gets left by the wayside all too often, even though there are many medical options for preventative medicine. The popular saying "prevention is better than cure" is unfortunately forgotten all too often! And yet it seems relatively easy to take preventative measures – a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, a reasonable amount of relaxation, plenty of sleep, don't use stimulants, avoid stress and mental imbalance, and take a positive attitude to live. These are considered important factors in protecting our health and offer a good way of remaining fit until old age. But it is also important to protect your health in terms of blood circulation. Why is this? A circulatory system that works well in our organism provides a fundamental basis for vitality, performance, health and well-being. Only with an effective circulation can an adequate supply of the cells with nutrients and oxygen and the disposal of toxics and metabolic by-products be ensured. This shows how taking preventative measures in good time for your circulation is just as important.
Effective Circulation – One of the Factors in Preventative Medicine
Our blood supplies all of our organs, joints and our musculature, every cell of our body, with oxygen and nutrients. Consequently, good circulation is required to maintain our body's functions and is therefore essential for our life. Overall, good circulation throughout our cardiovascular system is essential for maintaining or recovering our health, and microcirculation – a quite significant part of the overall circulatory system – plays a critical role here. Even smaller problems in the microcirculation of the individual organs can have major effects on daily life. As part of caring for your health, you should therefore watch for the alarm signals that indicate poor or restricted microcirculatory blood flow. There are plenty of these, including consistently cold hands, tingling, numbness or pain in the legs, pains in the buttocks and upper thigh, pain when walking, migraines, difficulties concentrating, tinnitus, problems sleeping, and frequent tiredness. But what is microcirculation? An easy-to-understand explanation is provided below.
Preventative Medicine and Microcirculation
As mentioned above, microcirculation involves both the supply of nutrients and oxygen to and the disposal of waste and toxins from the tissue, initiated by the circulation. Dysfunctional microcirculation in turn means that the cells are poorly supplied, resulting in cellular aging and even cellular death. Effective microcirculation can counteract this, however. The basis for microcirculation is the heart. The heart can be understood to be a motor or pump for the circulatory system. The left ventricle pumps the blood into the body's circulation, while the right ventricle pumps the blood into the pulmonary circulation. The body's main artery – the aorta – runs from the left ventricle. Two other major arteries then branch off from the aorta, and these continue to branch off again and again with increasingly smaller cross sections. At the end of these are the capillaries, the smallest vessels in the organism. The capillaries and the sections just before and after them are referred to as the microcirculation. Around three quarters of blood flow in human beings takes place in the microcirculation. Moreover, it is useful to know that all vessels in the human organism (except the capillaries) are surrounded by a layer of muscle. Whenever these muscles contract, the vessels are squeezed together, causing the blood to try and take an alternate route. There is no way back into the aorta, however, because of the pressure of the heart. As a result, the only way for the blood is to move forwards through the capillaries. The rhythmic tensioning and relaxation of the muscles that surround the microcirculation is referred to as vasomotion. In a healthy person, there are between three and five vasomotions a minute, while it will be accordingly fewer in a sick person. Fewer vasomotions result in the cells and tissue no longer receiving adequate supplies or disposal, and in the long term, this causes the performance of the body and mind to deteriorate. Pain, a state of poor well-being, and sickness may also develop. To prevent this, we take preventative measures or undergo treatment for an existing health condition to find a means to improve the restricted microcirculation and achieve effective blood flow. And where the topic of such a method for preventative healthcare and the treatment of circulatory disorders has arisen, it is certainly a good point to mention BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy.
The Use of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy in Preventative Healthcare and Complementary Treatment
As previously stated, dysfunctional microcirculation can cause cells to age faster and cause many diseases and malaises. The regular application of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy can help counteract these processes effectively. This therapy can also provide a valuable contribution to preventative medicine. At the core of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is a multidimensional signal structure that can provide effective stimulation for restricted or dysfunctional microcirculation. It supports the body's key control mechanisms for prevention, healing, and regeneration processes. BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is used in many applications, not just in preventative medicine. For example, this therapy can be used on a prophylactic basis as a complementary treatment in the event of sickness, to strengthen the immune reaction, and to activate the body's self-healing powers. This therapy can also have a positive effect on general well-being, on health, and also improve sleep. As an example, the BEMER Sleep Program, part of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy, is a highly effective treatment method for microcirculatory compensation disorders related to various sleep disorders. This is all the more important, because a quiet and healthy night's sleep in the interest of prevention not only has an effect on our general well-being and our performance, but also on our quality of life. Almost certainly of interest to younger people is the optimization of mental capacity that the microcirculatory stimulation offered by BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy can generate. And what about sports? Sportspeople, whether they be hobbyists or professionals, can also experience positive effects from BEMER therapy. In professional sports, for example, not only is preventative medicine extremely important (professional careers have been interrupted by poor preventative healthcare or even brought to a premature end), but regeneration times have also been shortened and training units extended thanks to the positive effects of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy. Sporting injuries too can be prevented with prophylactic measures, and even when they do occur, they can be healed at a faster pace.
