BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy uses electromagnetically transmitted signals to stimulate the pumping action of the smallest blood vessels, enabling the re-normalization of microvascular blood flow. The body's cells are better supplied and are able to perform their various functions. Diseases and pain can be better fought with the help of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy, the healing process for wounds can be sped up, energy can be provided for physical and mental activities, and regenerative processes can be assisted. Even in sports, be it professional or amateur, BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy can provide valuable support. Adequate blood flow through the microvessels enables shorter warm-up and wind-down phases, faster regeneration, and therefore also more effective training units. It is often even possible to speed up the healing process of microinjuries.
On the whole, BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy supports the body's control mechanisms for prevention, regeneration and rehabilitation processes. It is
an effective complementary treatment to:
- improve the supply to organs and tissue, thereby aiding regeneration,
- reduce susceptibility for infection,
- support the immune system,
- increase physical performance,
- increase mental performance,
- reduce the consequences of stress.
As previously stated, BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy also achieves astonishing performance in sporting activities. It can increase the maximum intensity of the exercise, improve the effectiveness of training, shorten regeneration phases in sports training, and reduce the risk of injury.
The Scientifically Proven Effectiveness of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy
Numerous studies and observations have provided scientific proof of the effectiveness of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy. Among them, increases of up to 30 percent in oxygen usage have been demonstrated in tissue. This is the key effect of this physical therapy, including in dysfunctional regeneration or rehabilitation. It would therefore not be unreasonable to say that BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy can be considered to be a milestone in physical vascular therapy due to the major contribution it has made towards blood flow and consequently to regeneration and improving vascular performance.
Regeneration – A Critical Factor in a Healthy Organism
The desire for a fountain of youth is surely as old as mankind itself. But sadly, such a fountain will never exist, because nature has set natural limits on our lifespan. Nonetheless, many people understandably wish to live a long life – and of course to do so in good health and happiness. The realization of this wish does not seem so unreasonable when we consider the process of regeneration that human cells undergo. Astounding as it seems, mathematically speaking we become entirely new people every few years. This is achieved by cell regeneration. In medicine, this refers to the replacement of cells or tissue in the organism – be it once, several times, or constantly. Stem cells exist for almost all organs and tissues, and these are responsible for regenerating the cells. However, the lifespan, or the rhythm and mechanism of cell regeneration, varies greatly. The human organism breaks down between 10 and 50 million cells a second, replacing them with new ones. While some cells are true miracles of regeneration and renew themselves in a short time, other cells are retained for years, if not for our entire lives. In physiological regeneration, for example, a human being generates so many new liver cells that they would theoretically suffice for almost 20 new organs. Even structures that appear to be highly static like bones are constantly broken down and regenerated by the body. Red blood cells are regenerated on average every 120 days. Brain cells and nerve cells, however, are believed to be retained and not regenerated. On the whole, however, the regeneration of cells – the process of renewal and recreation – plays a key role in ensuring that the organism continues to function well. This requires that all cells perform at their best. There are phases where cells perform at the limits of their function, for example when performing physical work and other physical activities (e.g. sport), and also phases where processes of replacement and regeneration take place. Our sleep cycle is the most prominent example of this, but also noteworthy is the regeneration that takes place during recovery and rest phases. In all phases, it is important that organs and tissues be as well supplied as possible. Given the aforementioned fact that the human body breaks down between 10 and 50 million cells a second and replaces them with new cells, it is very important to search for means to support these regenerative processes. But how can this be done? A key factor lies in supporting the microcirculation, which is responsible for supply and disposal in tissue cells and therefore also for regeneration.
Microcirculation as a Key Element of Regeneration
In microcirculation, the tissue is supplied with nutrients and oxygen, and waste by-products and toxins are disposed of. This is the regeneration of the organism. But what is microcirculation? To understand this, it is important to first consider the macrocirculation, which encompasses the heart and the connected arteries. The pressure generated by the heartbeats pumps the blood through the aorta into the major arteries. Given that an adult's heart rate (the number of heart beats a minute) is approximately 60 to 80 a minute, and that each heartbeat pumps around 60 to 80 ml of blood into the aorta, we can see that the heart puts in an incredible performance over the course of a human's life. If, for example, the lifespan of a human being was 70 years, between 200 and 250 million liters of blood would be pumped through the blood vessels during this time by 2.5 billion heartbeats. But let's go back to how the blood travels through the arteries. These arteries continue to branch out while their cross sections become ever smaller. At the end of these are the capillaries, the smallest vessels in the organism. Now we reach the microcirculation, which covers the capillaries and the sections just before and after them. These are considered to be the most important element of the entire supply system and of cell regeneration, because it is here that the actual supply and disposal processes in our cells take place. Only with the help of these supply processes can the body's cells perform their wide range of life-sustaining tasks and supply the body with energy. Ultimately, the circulation is the most important supply system in the human body. But first, let's look at what happens to the blood then. All blood vessels, with the exception of the capillaries, are surrounded by layers 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, however, because it is driven on by the pressure of the heart. As a result, the only way is to move forwards through the capillaries. The rhythmic tensing and relaxation of the muscles that surround the microcirculation is referred to in medicine as vasomotion. In a healthy person, there are between three and five vasomotions a minute. Vasomotions also regulate blood flow in such a way that areas that currently require more are more effectively supplied than those that temporarily do not need as much. For example, when performing physical activities, the supply needs of the muscles are high, while the inverse applies to mental activities. This is how the regenerative phases, the need for which varies, can be influenced.
