Q: IS THERE A WAY TO BALANCE or REGULATE ENERGY METABOLISM ACCURATELY & PRECISELY ENOUGH TO PROMOTE HEALTH, WELLNESS & REJUVENATION ? A: SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY A: SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY

7 MY BACKGROUND SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY INITIAL SKEPTICISM INITIAL SKEPTICISM FAMILY NEED FAMILY NEED CLINICAL BIOPHYSICS & CASE STUDIES CLINICAL BIOPHYSICS & CASE STUDIES

8 WHY SHOULD SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WORK ? LIVING ORGANISMS HAVE A BIO-ELECTRIC / BIO- MAGNETIC FIELD (HEART > BRAIN, LIVING MATRIX) LIVING ORGANISMS HAVE A BIO-ELECTRIC / BIO- MAGNETIC FIELD (HEART > BRAIN, LIVING MATRIX) UNIFIED THEORY OF MATTER-ENERGY UNIFIED THEORY OF MATTER-ENERGY EINSTEIN: e = mc2 EINSTEIN: e = mc2 WAVE……………PARTICLE CONCEPT WAVE……………PARTICLE CONCEPT LIFE-COMMUNICATION-INFORMATION REQUIRES ENERGY LIFE-COMMUNICATION-INFORMATION REQUIRES ENERGY

9 WHAT IS SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY ? SOPHISTICATED BIOFEEDBACK TECHNOLOGY – REGISTERED BY FDA AS A CLASS II MEDICAL DEVICE SOPHISTICATED BIOFEEDBACK TECHNOLOGY – REGISTERED BY FDA AS A CLASS II MEDICAL DEVICE NOT TO DIAGNOSE or TREAT DISEASE NOT TO DIAGNOSE or TREAT DISEASE NON-INVASIVE TECHNOLOGY USED TO DETECT IMBALANCES IN THE BODYS ENERGY FREQUENCIES & DELIVER SPECIFIC LOW ENERGY EM FREQUENCIES FOR SELF-REGULATION & BALANCING OF THE BODY NON-INVASIVE TECHNOLOGY USED TO DETECT IMBALANCES IN THE BODYS ENERGY FREQUENCIES & DELIVER SPECIFIC LOW ENERGY EM FREQUENCIES FOR SELF-REGULATION & BALANCING OF THE BODY

10 WHAT ARE THE KEYS TO SUCCESS OF SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY ? CLINICAL SUCCESS IS BASED ON PRECISE BIOPHYSICS & INDIVIDUALIZED BIOFEEDBACK: CLINICAL SUCCESS IS BASED ON PRECISE BIOPHYSICS & INDIVIDUALIZED BIOFEEDBACK: SPECIFIC SPECIFIC PULSED PULSED LOW INTENSITY LOW INTENSITY EXTREMELY LOW / LOW FREQUENCY EXTREMELY LOW / LOW FREQUENCY BIOFEEDBACK BIOFEEDBACK

11 SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WHY SPECIFIC ? THE HYDROGEN ATOMS OF DIFFERENT TISSUES RESONATE AT DIFFERENT, SPECIFIC FREQUENCIES [SISKEN & WALKER, 1995] THE HYDROGEN ATOMS OF DIFFERENT TISSUES RESONATE AT DIFFERENT, SPECIFIC FREQUENCIES [SISKEN & WALKER, 1995] ~ MRI ~ MRI H ATOM – MOST ABUNDANT IN BODY, ODD # PROTONS & HAS SPIN H ATOM – MOST ABUNDANT IN BODY, ODD # PROTONS & HAS SPIN TOXINS, DISEASE, TRAUMA, INJURY, INFLAMMATION & THE AGING PROCESS ALTER THESE FREQUENCIES (BY CURRENT OF INJURY) vs. HEALTHY, YOUNG TISSUES. THIS PHENOMENON HELPS US TO DETECT PROBLEM AREAS. TOXINS, DISEASE, TRAUMA, INJURY, INFLAMMATION & THE AGING PROCESS ALTER THESE FREQUENCIES (BY CURRENT OF INJURY) vs. HEALTHY, YOUNG TISSUES. THIS PHENOMENON HELPS US TO DETECT PROBLEM AREAS.

12 SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WHY PULSED ? WHEN THE EMF IS ON, RESONANCE or ALIGNMENT OF HYDROGEN ATOMS OCCURS. ALIGNMENT OCCURS IN 1 of 2 STATES, ONE LOW- ENERGY (LONGITUDINAL) & ONE HIGH-ENERGY (TRANSVERSE). WHEN THE EMF IS ON, RESONANCE or ALIGNMENT OF HYDROGEN ATOMS OCCURS. ALIGNMENT OCCURS IN 1 of 2 STATES, ONE LOW- ENERGY (LONGITUDINAL) & ONE HIGH-ENERGY (TRANSVERSE). WHEN THE EMF IS TURNED OFF, HYDROGEN ATOMS RELAX FROM THE HIGH ENERGY (TRANSVERSE) STATE TO A LOW ENERGY STATE INDUCING ELECTRON FLOW & PHOTON RELEASE OF A SPECIFIC WAVELENGTH. WHEN THE EMF IS TURNED OFF, HYDROGEN ATOMS RELAX FROM THE HIGH ENERGY (TRANSVERSE) STATE TO A LOW ENERGY STATE INDUCING ELECTRON FLOW & PHOTON RELEASE OF A SPECIFIC WAVELENGTH.

13 SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WHY PULSED ? WHEN THE EMF IS TURNED OFF WHEN THE EMF IS TURNED OFF ELECTRON FLOW & PHOTON RELEASE IS INDUCED QUELCHES FREE RADICALS ULTIMATE ANTI-OXIDANT RELIEVES INFLAMMATION REJUVENATES & ENERGIZES TISSUES

14 SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WHY LOW INTENSITY ? SPECIFIC PEMF NEEDS TO WORK AT BIOLOGIC or PHYSIOLOGIC LEVELS, WHICH ARE LOW INTENSITY ENERGY LEVELS. SPECIFIC PEMF NEEDS TO WORK AT BIOLOGIC or PHYSIOLOGIC LEVELS, WHICH ARE LOW INTENSITY ENERGY LEVELS. IN CONTRAST, HIGH INTENSITY ENERGY IMPULSES GENERATE HEAT / DESTRUCTION & ARE NOT USED IN THIS BIOFEEDBACK TECHNOLOGY. IN CONTRAST, HIGH INTENSITY ENERGY IMPULSES GENERATE HEAT / DESTRUCTION & ARE NOT USED IN THIS BIOFEEDBACK TECHNOLOGY.

15 SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WHY EXTREMELY LOW to LOW FREQUENCY ? EXTREMELY LOW FREQUENCIES (ELF) EXTREMELY LOW FREQUENCIES (ELF) DEFINED AS < 100 Hz DEFINED AS < 100 Hz CLINICAL FREQUENCIES USED TO 32,000+ Hz CLINICAL FREQUENCIES USED TO 32,000+ Hz BIOLOGIC or PHYSIOLOGIC FREQUENCIES BIOLOGIC or PHYSIOLOGIC FREQUENCIES VERY LONG WAVELENGTH, LESS PARTICLE-LIKE VERY LONG WAVELENGTH, LESS PARTICLE-LIKE IN CONTRAST, HIGH FREQUENCIES (e.g., X-RAYS, MICROWAVES) ARE DAMAGING & ARE NOT USED IN THIS BIOFEEDBACK TECHNOLOGY. IN CONTRAST, HIGH FREQUENCIES (e.g., X-RAYS, MICROWAVES) ARE DAMAGING & ARE NOT USED IN THIS BIOFEEDBACK TECHNOLOGY.

16 SPECIFIC PEMF THERAPY WHY BIOFEEDBACK ? INDIVIDUALIZED BIOFEEDBACK IS NECESSARY TO INDIVIDUALIZE CLINICAL USE OF THIS TECHNOLOGY INDIVIDUALIZED BIOFEEDBACK IS NECESSARY TO INDIVIDUALIZE CLINICAL USE OF THIS TECHNOLOGY THE VASCULAR AUTONOMIC SIGNAL (VAS) IS ALTERED WHEN THE CURRENT OF INJURY INTERFERES WITH THE (CORRECT, SPECIFIC EXTERNALLY APPLIED) PEMF THE VASCULAR AUTONOMIC SIGNAL (VAS) IS ALTERED WHEN THE CURRENT OF INJURY INTERFERES WITH THE (CORRECT, SPECIFIC EXTERNALLY APPLIED) PEMF BY SCANNING THE BODY & USING VAS BIOFEEDBACK, THE MAIN FOCUS FOR APPLYING THE PEMF CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY SCANNING THE BODY & USING VAS BIOFEEDBACK, THE MAIN FOCUS FOR APPLYING THE PEMF CAN BE IDENTIFIED
