One of our challenges is the FDA will not permit us to make any claims about cures etc for any disease as the Curaton and I believe all other PEMF devices have not been listed/certified/approved by the FDA for the treatment of any disease.
What is Lyme disease?
Lyme disease is an infection caused by a spirochete (say “SPY-ROH-KEET”) that humans can get from the bite of an infected deer tick. The spirochete’s scientific name is Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease is called “The Great Imitator” because its symptoms mimic many other diseases. It can affect any organ of the body, including the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, and the heart.
People usually get Lyme disease from ticks infected with Lyme spirochetes. Most human cases are caused by the nymphal, or immature, form of the tick. Nymphs are about the size of a poppy seed. Because their bite is painless, many people do not realize they have been bitten.
Ticks are tiny crawling bugs in the spider family that feed by sucking blood from animals. If the animal is carrying Lyme disease spirochetes, the tick sucks them up as it feeds and they multiply in the tick’s gut. The tick may then transfer them into the next animal it feeds on.
Where Do Ticks Live?
Tick density is linked to local micro-climate, flora, and fauna and can vary dramatically from one spot to another even within a single yard. Density and infection rates also vary from year to year in a single location.
Ticks prefer humid environments. Adult ticks climb up grasses and bushes on the edges of trails to wait for an animal to pass by. In hot, dry weather they are less active. Immature ticks are often found in leaf litter under oak trees. Nymphs may climb up onto downed logs.
What about PEMF? How can it help?
PEMF Systems do not cure Lyme disease but the Curatron can help reduce the effect of the symptoms such as pain and swelling. Anecdotally, we hear from time to time how high power of the Curaton systems can reduce swelling and pain, improve circulation in the soft tissue around an inflammation and reduce the symptomatic challenges.
