- Why is the Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Stimulator [PEMF] useful to help with one’s overall health terrain? Will it help a person dealing with cancer?
- In 1931 Dr. Warburg won his first Nobel Prize for proving cancer cells are low in oxygen primarily because they shift to a more primitive form of respiration which utilizes sugar instead of oxygen.
It is the cancer process itself which causes most of the lack of oxygen, not the lack of oxygen which causes the cancer process.
- He came to the conclusion that it is primarily pollution which leads to cellular stress and inflammation resulting in cellular dysfunction.
- The PEMF stimulator can open the pores of the cell membrane thus helping to promote oxygenation and revitalization. I am not stating that PEMF can cure or prevent cancer. Simply that it helps create an underlying terrain that can be beneficial toward balancing all inflammations and irregular functionings such as cancer.
- PEMF corrects imbalances in the electromagnetic field that surrounds each cell. Just as we use EEGs and EKGs to measure the electromagnetic fields of the brain and heart, so every cell of the body has fields to measure and affect.
- Each cell is a tiny battery. The trans-membrane potential or TMP is the measurement of the cell’s electrical charge. In order for a cell to allow the passage of nutrients IN and metabolic waste OUT, the cell membrane needs to be fully charged. In cancer cells, the cell voltage drops from a normal of 70 millivolts to less than 40 millivolts. At this low level of cell energy, only five substances can pass in or out of the cell: water, sugar, potassium, cesium, and rubidium. Because of the new aberrant cell behavior, Oxygen IS NO LONGER ABLE to enter. This gives room for the cancer to flourish since it is anaerobic and cannot flourish WITH oxygen.
- So the good news is that anything that can help facilitate reoxygenation of the aberrant cells will be beneficial. There IS light [and oxygen] at the end of the tunnel…!
What are those marks on Michael Phelps? By now the public is hearing the term ”cupping.” Since I was interviewed last year by Agence France Press to do a demonstration of this procedure for their global media outreach, I will explain cupping again. Seems the sighting of Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston with cupping marks on their backs had put this ancient practice in the news…You can view it at this link: http://www.democratandchronicle.com/videonetwork/2571529145001/Remedy-of-the-Stars-Cupping-Leaves-Its-Mark-on-Hollywood.
“Cupping,” is the term for an ancient Chinese technique to eliminate the stagnant blood that typically occurs around the neck and shoulders. A small glass jar with a vacuum inside creates a suction that pulls this stuck blood to the surface capillaries. From there this ‘old’ blood can easily return through the capillary system to the heart to be re-oxygenated to restore more active blood circulation. (Here Jennifer’s marks have faded from red to white.) Other partakers are Victoria Beckham and Jessica Simpson.
I did two versions in French and English, shown worldwide. A French friend caught it on TV in Brazil. In 1975, when actress Lee Grant was up to win an Oscar for “Shampoo,” she declined this treatment before the gala so as NOT to have marks. We did it the day AFTER… It took 40 years to become fashionable!
What did not get included in the segment was my contrasting of cupping with another similar technique called Gua Sah, a friction rub that achieves the same results with some added benefits. It may look dramatic but it is not painful and most of the time actually feels great even while it is being applied! And especially afterwards. As in cupping, these are not bruises–only the presence of stagnant blood come to the surface. The marks recede in a day or three, depending on one’s circulation.
In my estimation, it is more comfortable and controllable, less labor intensive and more thorough. In the news clip another acupuncturist’s cupping shows the unnecessary, potentially uncomfortable side effects. Temporary raised red welts resulted from the strong degree of suction that can hurt when pulled off. This is not necessary to achieve results.
But both techniques perform a simple yet critical action of stimulating of blood, lymph and chi circulation around the neck and shoulders, and sometimes elsewhere on the body. These trapezoid muscles work overtime to hold up the 12 pound “bowling ball” that we carry around all day. And when it is hanging over a computer or a steering wheel, the head is more the equivalent of 20 lbs…Cupping and Gua Sah to the rescue!
