Has anyone tried PEMF? If so, what results did you achieve? Thanks!

I am using "Bemer 3000", (a kind of PEMF) since past 6 weeks. I go there thrice a week. yet to experience any positive effect.

I cured an inflammatory heel condition with it (not the Bemer, I don't like those), so I know it can work. The machine broke, so I couldn't try it on anything else.

I am seeing some talk about Pemf having healing properties for RA. (Not sure how effective it is) Are there any studies yet on PEMF therpy reliving AS symptoms??

I was very skeptical of such a pseudosceintific sounding idea. But I trust the scientist that I saw in this interview. She said that she studied it and it worked in-vitro (in a petri dish).

#revitalize2016 - How To Prevent, and Heal Chronic Lyme Disease
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1EdRYFPDWM

The goal was to stop microbial growth in Lyme Disease. Perhaps RA is also caused by microbes at the location of inflammation -- septic arthritis.

However, I have learned of studies on how microwaves (Wi-Fi) excite microbes in a petri dish and make them become pathogenic/or grow. I can't remember which it was but it wasn't a positive effect.

So, I am not sure what the difference between the two cases is -- positive for Lyme and negative since it makes microbes become virulent in a different case.

I tend to think that the driving force of AS is microbial from the gut and also may have a microbial component in microbes that like the collagen in the spine.

Just my 2 maos.
