The benefits of Electrotherapy and Copper.
Various forms of copper have been used for medicinal purposes throughout the history of mankind. The ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Persian, Hindu and Aztec writings record various consistent medicinal uses of copper.1 Today, as more information becomes available, alternative health care and home remedies are gaining popularity. Health publications include copper bracelets as a home remedy to possibly ease the pain from arthritis in some people who seem to get an insufficient amount of copper from their food.
Similarly, the galvanic coupling of metals, copper and zinc, and the resulting micro-electro fields are well researched for forms of therapeutic relief for a range of symptoms.
How micro electro-therapy assists the body:
It has long been known that biological processes can be affected by electrical treatment. As much as two thousand years ago, Roman physicians used electric eels to ease the pain of gout-swollen feet.
The brain can be affected by external electrical fields to increase or decrease its activity. This type of therapy may eventually lead to methods of improving memory, concentration and learning ability.
The US Food and Drug Administration has given their seal of approval to bone healing using electro-therapy.
There is evidence that certain kinds of nerve cells and tissue can be regenerated with micro-electrotherapy. Calcium accumulating in swollen joints as a result of bursitis or a sprain, can be broken up and then dispersed with small amounts of micro electro-therapy.
The body can repair and renew itself under the direction of the brain. By introducing an external stabilising current of micro-electricity into the body to prevent fluctuations, the body can use its tremendous capacity for self-healing, to cure existing illnesses and possibly prevent the contraction of new ones.
Micro electro-therapy can also influence healing by stabilizing ions in the blood, thereby helping to restore PH balance and enriching oxygen content in the circulatory system.
This can have a dramatic effect on the immune system in bringing healing and pain relief. Tissue swelling following bruising or laceration can respond favourably to micro-electrical fields, and be reduced by pulsed electromagnetic therapy; new skin growth over burns can be similarly accelerated
Present knowledge indicates that all biological processes are fundamentally electric; central nervous systems in particular generate and transmit minute electric currents which regulate development, growth and healing.
