QRS update

Those who have been receiving this newsletter for some time or are patients of mine are probably familiar with a treatment I recommend called QRS (Quantron Resonance Systems). This treatment is administered through a German-made mat on which people can sit or lie for brief periods of time while it produces pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs).

Although too few Americans are familiar with PEMFs, devices like the QRS are well known in Europe and are often provided in hospitals. In addition, there are volumes of research supporting the benefits of PEMFs for health and some exciting new research discussed in past issues of this newsletter focuses on their benefits for brain function and regeneration, and even severe depression.

To understand the benefits of PEMFs consider that the human body is electric. Nerve signals follow electrical impulses. Healing and regeneration of tissues occurs following electrical signals. Detoxification and absorption of nutrients are driven by electricity, and so forth. Devices like the QRS have the capacity to activate and normalize electrical activity in the body.

Can pulsed electromagnetic fields make your (or your child’s) brain grow stronger?

Yes, concludes a study recently reported by New Scientist magazine. The study was carried out at City University in New York where researchers used pulsed electromagnetic fields directed at the brains of mice for a period of five days.

At the end of the experiment, the mice were sacrificed and their brains analyzed under a microscope. What the researchers found was remarkable: compared to controls, the brains of treated mice had developed stronger connections between neurons, indicating better function.

This by itself would have been significant enough, but researchers found more: in treated mice the brains showed proliferation of stem cells in areas associated with learning, memory, and moods. It is now known that stem cells are present and divide throughout life in the brain, where scientists believe they play a determining role in preserving health and repairing damage. Therefore any therapy found to activate stem cells could also stimulate healing of the brain and, conceivably, recovery from conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and possibly even autism.
