BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy

The “root cause” of about 95% of all health issues is poor blood flow. BEMER has been clinically proven in independent laboratories as the BEST method known today to substantially increase blood flow. Exercise can help increase blood flow about 5 – 7%, PEMF (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field) devices about 7 – 10%; but nothing comes close to achieving the approximate 30% increase in blood flow like BEMER provides (with no side effects). Substantially increasing blood flow feeds and nourishes and oxygenates trillions of cells in your body; removes more toxins and waste products; and allows your body to correct itself, heal on its own and perform at its best. This can be accomplished in only 8 minutes sitting on the Bemer mat. For more Bemer info and Distributor Opportunity, click here.
