The site listed is where I bought my PEMF therapy device two months ago that was specifically recommended for Lyme, and it didn't cost anywhere near that, about one-fourth that amount. The site offers reviews and information on over a dozen different models for a multitude of ailments/conditions. The $20,000 price quoted was for a professional grade device. That being said, having used this device diligently as instructed for two months, I CANNOT explain how phenomenal my results have been. My expectations have been surpassed beyond anything I hoped was possible.
I first noticed signs of what was Lyme in late 2014 and wasn't diagnosed, despite almost monthly Dr visits and repeated lab work, until late February 2015 by a positive WB. By this point I was quite infested with it and co-infections, but I was grateful to have a dx. Like so many with Lyme, I've taken many different antibiotics, anti-malarials, anti-parasitics, probiotics, herbs, vitamins, etc, some intolerable, some more helpful than others. Of course, I altered my diet, resulting in some relief.
My symptoms included debilitating insomnia, anxiety, irritability, depression, brain fog, hyperacusis (sensitivity to sound), light sensitivity and other vision issues, pain to touch, severe upper/lower GI symptoms (lost 35 lbs total, 12 in 21 days one time due to abx intolerance or herxing), exacerbation of prior fibromyalgia and my degenerative disc/joint disease, dysautonomia and orthostatic intolerance (low BP), which caused dizziness, shortness of breath, near fainting, more fatigue and slow gut motility, and the list goes on. I was very ill.
My hormone doctor -- I have hypothyroidism -- finally figured it out and referred me to a prominent Lyme literate practice within an hour of my home. I thought Yippie! That was premature and extremely naive. LD is so complicated. One of the many treatments offered at this LLMD office is PEMF therapy. I tried PEMF treatments at several different locations, resulting in remarkable pain reduction and increased mobility. My research began and I eventually found many available in-home devices.
Like I said, I've been using mine for two months with phenomenal results. It's a whole body mat type, and the first night of use, I slept better than I have in over 15 years. While not all of my symptoms are gone, the difference is quality-of-life altering. I feel like my body now has a fighting chance to help heal itself, and I know I still have a ways to go. Now that I understand the principles behind this technology, I can see myself using this device forever. My husband has used it for low back and other joint pain and now believes in its effectiveness and especially for me.
Sorry to be so long winded, but I needed to get it all out there. If one person can be helped by this information, it's time well spent.
