Electrical Devices can help with the following:
 
 
Circulation  Arrhythmias/Dysrhythmias
 Cardioversion is a procedure used to treat abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). The most commonly treated arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation. An electrical "shock" is delivered to the heart to restore its rhythm to a normal pattern. The electrical energy can be delivered externally, with electrodes placed on the chest or directly to the heart using paddles on the heart during an open chest surgery. Alternately, the energy can be delivered through the electrodes of a permanently implanted device called a cardioverter-defibrillator.

Digestion

  Nausea, Vomiting
 The ReliefBand® Device is a drug-free remedy which has received FDA clearance for treatment of nausea and vomiting due to pregnancy, chemotherapy, motion sickness, and as an adjunct to antiemetics for post-operative nausea. ReliefBand® Device is a class II medical device. Further information can be viewed on their home page.

Environment / Toxicity

  Electrical Hypersensitivity
 The use of electrical appliances can be minimized, but more importantly, long term exposure to current carrying wires should be avoided. Beds should be moved away from electrical wiring where possible.

The use of an instrument like The CellSensor can help you detect areas in your home where you should not be spending a lot of time. Easy to use, you just walk through your house with the simple instructions not to put furniture or beds where the meter finds a hot spot over 2 milligauss.

Headaches, fatigue, depression, pain, all have been linked to these hot spots.

Another product is called Dr. Gauss Meter.

Infections

  Lyme Disease
 Here are a couple testimonies on the use of Beck's Electrifier and Magnetic Pulser in the treatment of Lyme disease.

Metabolic

  Headaches, Migraine/Tension
  A hand-held device which fires magnetic pulses into the brain could offer relief to millions of migraine suffers.

The transcranial magnetic stimulator has been recommended by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) after clinical trials showed it was effective at reducing pain.

Of 164 patients treated with the device during trials, 39 per cent were found to be pain free after two hours. And 30 per cent were still without pain after 24 hours.

In a separate study, three-quarters of patients with migraine who were treated repeatedly with the device had a reduction in headache frequency.

Nervous System

  Motion Sickness
 The ReliefBand® Device is a drug-free remedy which has received FDA clearance for treatment of nausea and vomiting due to pregnancy, chemotherapy, motion sickness, and as an adjunct to antiemetics for post-operative nausea. ReliefBand® Device is a class II medical device. Further information can be viewed on their home page.

Organ Health

  Barrett's Esophagus
 BARRX Medical, Inc. today announced that 70% of the patients enrolled in a multi-center clinical trial were free of a precancerous condition called Barrett's esophagus one year after treatment. The data was published in the February issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, a medical journal for gastroenterologists who perform advanced endoscopic procedures. In the report titled, "Circumferential Endoscopic Ablation of Barrett Esophagus using a Balloon- Based System: One-Year Follow-up of 100 Patients," patients with Barrett's esophagus were safely treated with the HALO360 Ablation System.

"Publication of the one-year results of the AIM (Ablation of Intestinal Metaplasia) Trial represents a very important milestone in the advancement of this ablative technology for our patients with Barrett's esophagus," says Dr. Sharma. "Until now, the patient with Barrett's esophagus was relegated to a lifetime of frequent endoscopic surveillance procedures to watch for progression to more dangerous forms of the disease, like dysplasia and cancer. The results of this study suggest that we can safely and proactively eliminate Barrett's esophagus at the very earliest stage, rather than limiting ourselves to passive observation of the disease for progression. This has been a welcome change in the management strategy for our patients with Barrett's esophagus."

In this study, patients with the earliest stage of Barrett's esophagus (intestinal metaplasia) received ablation using the HALO360 Ablation System, a balloon-based radiofrequency device designed to remove the diseased cells using controlled heat.

The procedures were performed non-surgically, using endoscopy, which allowed the patient to return to normal activity after treatment. Follow-up visits over 12 months included frequent endoscopy with biopsy procedures to determine if the disease was fully eliminated. At one year, 70% of patients were cured of Barrett's, while the remaining patients had near-complete resolution of their disease.
