Magnet Therapies use electromagnetic energy to diminish the symptoms of various diseases including cancer. BEMER is recognized as a Class II Medical Device in the European Union. Patients may go to a clinic that offers BEMER Therapy or purchase a BEMER device to use at home. MiraMate is another company that offers magnetic therapy devices at a more affordable rate than BEMER.
BEMER Therapy works to optimize the body’s circulation and oxygenation by boosting microcirculation through the use of electromagnetic energy. The system promotes blood flood through the smallest vessels in the body, the capillaries. By promoting blood flow, the BEMER system improves oxygenation in the body which in turn promotes self-healing. Patients with a variety of disorders have experienced significant improvement in their symptoms using BEMER Therapy . Patients with the following disorders are regularly treated with the BEMER machine in Europe:
- Multiple sclerosis 
- Cradle cap
- Skin injuries
- Back pain
- Common Cold
- Peripheral artery disease
- Wound healing
- Torn ligaments
- Bone fractures
- Sprains and strains
- Cancer 
The BEMER system, though initially developed as a vascular therapy, uses low-dose electromagnetic fields (EMF) to manipulate cellular process. BEMER therapy can normalize the microcirculation using a low-frequency, pulsed EMF pattern which contributes to the overall health of cells. Studies of cancer cells from the lung, head, neck, colon, rectum, and pancreas have shown significant changes in their metabolic cycles following treatment with BEMER. Cancer cells become more radiosensitive, and may become sensitive to certain chemotherapy drugs (such as doxorubicin, for example) using BEMER .
Research has shown significant effects in mice on T-cell lymphoma EL4 using low-frequency, pulsed electromagnetic fields created by a BEMER device. Exposure to EMF-BEMER slowed tumor growth in the mice and prolonged their survival, particularly in mice that were immuno-compromised .
The BEMER system is officially authorized as a class IIa medical device in the European Union (CE0483) . BEMER-Signal is a worldwide-patented device that’s used in over 40 countries throughout the world. In several countries in both South America and Asia, BEMER systems are state-approved medical devices .
Safety and Effectiveness
Studies done on mice has shown that EMF-BEMER does not accelerate tumor growth in experimental animals. Rather, this treatment device slows tumor growth particularly in animals that are immune-compromised .
Scientists have shown that BEMER-type electromagnetic fields contribute to gene regulation and gene expression. While the BEMER system appears to have an effect on cellular metabolism and cellular matrix structure, this machine did not cause an increase in the expression of cancer-related genes in human mesenchymal cells or chondrocytes .
How BEMER Therapy is Administered
BEMER Therapy is administered through a machine that connects to one of several devices that deliver electromagnetic frequencies to the body including the following:
- Light treatment for skin issues (660 nm; 4000 mcd intensity)
- Body pad for small-scale treatment
- Seat cushion for small-scale treatment
- Full body mat for full body treatment
- Armchair with built in BEMER system 
Patients can find a doctor or health practitioner who administers BEMER treatments or they can purchase BEMER products online at https://shop.bemergroup.com/en_US/home.
Possible Negative Effects
According to Dr. William Pawluck, a self-professed authority on magnetic field therapy, reactions to magnetic therapies happen about 5% of the time, but the negative effects from therapy usually go away if the patient continues with the treatment. Full body exposure to electromagnetic frequencies tends to cause a reaction more often than localized treatments .
Magnetic therapy can lower blood pressure and decrease heart rate in some patients, which is generally positive but could be a concern in patients on high blood pressure medication. Patients who are sensitive to magnetic fields may experience the following side effects when undergoing BEMER Therapy:
- Metallic taste in the mouth
- Brain fog
- Increased urination
- Warm or cold sensations in the body
- Colors in the visual fields
- Heart palpitations
- Heaviness in the extremeties .
