What is PD?
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases in the world, which is only second to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In 2015, more than 6.2 million people suffered from PD and resulted in about 117,400 deaths worldwide. It more commonly occurs in people over the age of 60 and males are more often affected than females. The average life expectancy after diagnosis is 7 to 14 years.
As Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, the symptoms will appear slowly over time.
Signs and Symptoms
PD is characterized by motor and non-motor symptoms. Movement (Motor) related symptoms are the most recognizable symptoms in Parkinson’s disease. The following are motor
and non-motor symptoms for PD:
- the slowness of movement (bradykinesia)
- postural instability
- autonomic dysfunction
- disorders of cognition
- depression, apathy, and anxiety
- sensory, especially altered sense of smell
- sleep difficulties
PD is caused by the gradual loss of structure and function of dopaminergic neurons in the ventral tegmental area, and the dense fraction of the substantia nigra in the midbrain, which causes the subsequent damage to the basal ganglia (BG).
Cumulative evidence proves that PD is the result of a complex interaction between genetic abnormalities, environmental toxins, and mitochondrial dysfunction.
What is PEMF Therapy?
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy, better known as PEMF, is a way of healing illness and disease by increasing your body’s natural vitality.
It’s a safe and natural way to literally recharge your body. It does this by targeting your body at a cellular level to stimulate cell metabolism and improve your health. It’s been shown to provide a wide range of health benefits for illnesses and diseases, including Parkinson’s disease, Arthritis, Asthma, Alzheimer’s, Symptoms of depression, Migraines, Pain relief, IBS and many more.
What’s more, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of PEMF therapy for treatment of the major depressive disorder in PD patients. It’s an alternative good choice for the PD patients who failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from very high dosages of antidepressant medications.
PEMF Therapy has proven to be enormously beneficial in a wide range of health problems, and that this is strongly backed by science: “Worldwide more than 2,000 double-blind studies have demonstrated that PEMF therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions, as well as to promote and maintain general cellular health and function.”
Apparently, NASA has already spent millions researching PEMF therapies, as when astronauts are outside the Earth’s natural EM fields for some time, this results in health issues.
Does PEMF Therapy Work for PD?
Several studies reported PEMF therapy improved cognitive functions and motor symptoms of PD. For example, the elderly PD patients with cognitive impairment perceive a part or parts of their body as disproportionately large, but after receiving PEMF therapy, the drawings of the PD patients show the reversal of macrosomatognosia with reduction of the right parietal lobe dysfunction.
In another research, PEMF therapy is applied to treat the stage 3 PD patients, resulting in a marked improvement in motor and non-motor symptoms such as mood swings, sleeplessness, pain, and cognitive dysfunctions.
PEMF therapy is also effective in improving visuospatial deficits in PD patients, as assessed by the clock-drawing test.
Moreover, PEMF therapy does improve PD-associated freezing, a symptom manifesting as a sudden attack of immobility that is usually experienced during walking.
Treating Parkinson’s Diseases Using Mini Magic
Mini Magic is a new portable and affordable PEMF device for treating Parkinson’s Diseases, which can be used daily with confidence. If you can flick a switch, you can use Mini Magic.
After using Mini Magic for a couple of weeks, its impacts on the user’s PD symptoms are immediate and very noticeable. These initial benefits, for the users, included:
- significant symptom relief (much less pain, rigidity, brain fog);
- increased access to movement throughout the day (more “on” time per dose medication, less “misses” when a dose doesn’t kick in, less medication required overall);
- improved ability to cope with better cognitive abilities, mood and energy, and less of the busy and anxious thoughts.
You can also experiment with timing and positions, PEMF therapy may offer the substantial quality of life benefits for people with various forms of PD.
What’s more, if you are gradually using it consistently for longer times, keeping it on through several cycles of the PD drugs, you will find that Mini Magic can reduce the prolonged “off” periods in which the drugs wear off completely. Thus, consistent use of the device is helping to keep pain and rigidity symptoms at bay, and to also extend the time of action of each dose too, allowing a lower drug burden overall. Therefore, you will get less, and less severe, dyskinesia – the large-scale uncontrolled wriggling movements which long-term use of the PD drugs tends to cause (side-effect of medication).
