The fast pace and daily demands of life can have anyone run down, especially those who are prone to stress, burnout, and physical ailments. And unfortunately, trying to regulate your health with diet and exercise sometimes isn’t enough to improve your quality of life. Is there anything else you can do to help yourself? At 1st Choice Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine in Bellevue, WA we are proud to be the first Washington clinic to offer revolutionary BEMER Therapy: a new way to improve your overall health.
Is BEMER Therapy Right for You?
How do you know if BEMER Therapy is right for you? It’s a good question. Generally speaking, this is a therapy that is appropriate for most patients who are interested in combining it with any of their current acupuncture, herbal remedies, or medications. But to truly know if BEMER is right for you, you should consider what this therapy can help with. BEMER Therapy addresses three main causes of chronic low health, including:
Stress, Pain, and Fatigue
What is the primary reason you constantly feel sluggish or not quite at full health? Usually, it’s because your body is coping with the adverse impact of stress, pain, and fatigue. In particular, these three factors are the leading causes of repeated concerns, such as headache, body aches, lack of interest, low concentration, mood swings, and much more. Interestingly, these three factors also interact. If you are in pain, you are more likely to be stressed and fatigued, for example.
Stress, pain, and fatigue are all contributing risk factors for many major health concerns. High levels of stress, for instance, are a leading cause of cardiovascular disease. Chronic pain is a known cause of a lowered immune system, and fatigue is a contributor to disturbed sleep and appetite, particularly weight gain. By using this therapy, patients can drastically reduce their levels of stress, pain, and fatigue, which greatly reduces risk factors for developing other ailments.
Low circulation or poor circulation is an indicator of many health concerns, especially those related to cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological health. Poor body circulation can be a contributing factor in fatigue as well as a cause for a slower metabolism. BEMER technology is specifically designed to improve the body’s circulation to encourage better oxygenation of the blood and a more robust metabolism. Circulation is also responsible for carrying nutrients around the body to assist in the body’s natural regenerative abilities: particularly blood plasma and antibodies contained within the blood.
The immune system is the backbone of health. Our immune system is the body’s only defense against viral and bacterial infections as well as other abnormalities. In particular, our immune system is able to tailor our antibodies to be internal one-man armies to counteract infections and disease. But even our immune system needs help sometimes.
One of the best ways to support the immune system response is to make sure that the rest of the body is operating at full capacity without any resources being diverted to responding to other issues. Our immune system is incredibly responsive to stress, pain, and fatigue, which means that chronic issues take away from our body’s ability to defend and heal itself. Aside from ensuring the body is equipped with all the micronutrients and macronutrients it needs to defend itself, the strong immune system also relies on overall good health to maintain itself.
Will This Treatment Help You?
If you struggle with any of these three causes of chronic low health, then it is likely that BEMER treatment is right for you. This therapy is one of the best tools of integrative medicine to help resolve issues associated with a poor immune system and chronic stress, pain, and fatigue. If you are seeking a treatment that can reduce multiple health concerns at once, then this treatment is likely right for you.
Benefits of BEMER Therapy
There are several benefits of this therapy that are appealing to prospective patients. BEMER treatment is a high-tech solution inspired by centuries of medical understanding. This treatment addresses the root causes of health concerns to help improve your overall bodily function and quality of life. Some benefits of this therapy include:
This is a non-invasive therapy. In fact, this treatment is unique in that the only thing required of the patient is to lay down on a padded electromagnetic mat and allow pulses of energy to stimulate the body’s internal responses. As a non-invasive treatment, there is no need for general or local anesthetics, and the treatment itself can be completed within 1 hour.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. After patients have completed their therapy, they are free to return to all normal daily activities, including driving, work, errands, and exercise. We encourage patients to follow this treatment by drinking an adequate amount of water and eating a balanced diet, but there are no additional requirements otherwise. Patients are able to drive themselves home after therapy is complete.
Safe for Everyone
This is a therapy that is safe for everyone, regardless of age, weight, gender, or physical ability. In fact, this therapy is especially beneficial for patients who have chronic health conditions or physical disabilities. This treatment is also approved by the FDA as a Class I medical device to help improve the circulation of the blood to reduce fatigue and pain. Medical devices and therapies with FDA approval have passed rigorous testing that determines the treatment safe for patients.
One of the main benefits of this treatment is the fact that it is so versatile. This is a treatment that can address the causes of many physical or health concerns at one time, including injuries sustained at work or permanent disabilities. This treatment is both a therapy for current conditions and a preventative therapy to protect against developing other health conditions.
Compatible With Other Treatments
The final benefit of this therapy is its compatibility with other treatments. BEMER is a treatment that complements our acupuncture treatments and herbal remedies and is often combined to enhance the results of these treatments. This therapy is also compatible with Western medicine, including medications that manage chronic ailments, and has been known to reduce the side effects of medications.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does BEMER Therapy Work?
BEMER works by emitting electromagnetic pulses from a specially designed padded mat. The patient lays on the mat and absorbs the gentle pulses of energy, not unlike a massage. The internal processes of the body, particularly circulation and self-healing mechanisms, are then stimulated by the electromagnetic pulses, which then improves overall health. This is because many of the functions of the human body are reliant on natural electricity generated by the brain and the nervous system; the electromagnetic pulses of BEMER treatment send out similar messages to stimulate whole-body health.
Why Is Circulation Important?
Circulation refers to the way blood flows through the body from the heart to the extremities and back. Circulation is one of the most vital body processes because it is responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, as well as transporting mechanisms belonging to the immune system, such as antibodies. When the circulatory system is in trouble, the rest of health will soon decline, meaning protecting circulation is a priority in medicine.
Why Does Oxygenation Matter?
Oxygenation is the process of oxygen being carried through the body to the cells, particularly the lungs. Oxygenation is a function of the circulatory system and refers to the ability of the blood to supply each part of the body with oxygen so that body cells can function properly. Oxygenation is important to overall health for much the same reason as circulation is. This is because oxygen is a vital component of the functional integrity of the cells. Without oxygen, cells do not have the energy to perform their jobs, and the processes of the body will shut down.
What Are Self-Healing Mechanisms?
The human body is an incredibly resilient machine, and part of the reason why humans are resilient is our internal self-healing mechanisms. The human body is capable of massive feats of natural regeneration, including healing from wounds, recovering from disease, and building protections against bacteria and viruses. There are several self-healing mechanisms that are part of the body, such as the plasma in the blood that is responsible for clotting and healing wounds. The body’s immune system is also a major self-healing mechanism that works to protect the body from harmful diseases.
Will You Need Multiple Treatments?
This therapy works best with regular treatment sessions, sometimes spaced about two weeks apart. The effects of this treatment gradually build to improve health and continue to support improved health with each session. We recommend patients have regularly scheduled sessions for this treatment, sometimes in tandem with acupuncture or herbal remedies if desired. We will help you determine how often you require this treatment to improve and maintain your overall health.
Will You Need a Consultation?
Our consultation will help us determine if this treatment is the best fit for your particular needs. At our consultation, we will gather information about you, including current medical issues and your health concerns. We may explore the possibility of combining this treatment with any of our other acupuncture or integrative health treatments. The consultation is a standard formality to make sure your expectations for treatment are established, including the aspects of your health you want to prioritize.
Who Are Good Candidates?
