microcurrent therapyWith the popularity of microcurrent facial and its celebrity status,

it’s easy to think that it’s just another beauty treatment fad.  But, the truth is, microcurrent therapy has been around for decades as a viable treatment for pain, both chronic and acute, various diseases and health conditions like slipped disc and back pains and most recently, for all inflammatory diseases.

The best microcurrent therapy is the use of low level electrical current with a waveform that mimics the body’s natural electrical charge. Our body needs electricity to function. At the cellular level, our body has its own powerhouse, an energy producing organelle called the mitochondria.

Mitochondria are the earliest remnants of life on earth and are essential to the growth and function of all cells and accomplish a multitude of metabolic tasks.  There can be as many as 500 to 2000 mitochondria scattered throughout the cytoplasm of every 7 trillion cells in your body. The amount is specific to the location of the cell in the body, the brain and the heart having the most. Mitochondria are the organelles for aerobic respiration and energy production and contain their own DNA.  They act as storage units for energy converted from food nutrients.  These nutrients like sugars, amino, and fatty acids are metabolized through the Krebs Cycle and converted into electrons via the "electron transport chain."

microcurrent - Citric Acid (Krebs) cycleSad to say, our fast-paced lifestyle, plus our exposure to blue light depletes our body’s natural electrical charge.  As a result, our energy levels go down. And once this happens, our body’s natural defenses against diseases are stressed and weakened.

This electron deficiency is the reason why we are plagued with inflammatory respiratory, circulatory, musculoskeletal, digestive diseases.

Advanced microcurrent treatment stimulates the body’s nerve fibers and causes them to release neuropeptides and neuromodulators to support the body’s natural healing system. The secretion of neuropeptides, neuromodulators is like the body's own pharmacy.  These protein-building blocks rejuvenate your damaged tissues.

The current medical microcurrent model states that microcurrent therapy triggers impulses to facilitate a chemical reaction to activate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) at the cellular level.

However this model is outdated and simplistic and few people understand the true nature of electricity, the “secret sauce” of the eBodyFUSION research and training.

How does microcurrent therapy compare to TENS?

Many readers are confused or led into thinking that TENS and microcurrent is just the same. You can read more information about TENS machines and how they compare to microcurrent devices like SCENAR.

Another groundbreaking concept in the field of electrotherapy and microcurrent is earthing therapy or simply grounding therapy. Are you familiar with this? By touching the ground with your bare feet or merely touching the surface of the earth, you could get the wide benefits of earthing therapy by being electrically charged up with energy, just like a rechargeable battery. With the use of grounding sheets, you get similar results as if you are using any microcurrent machine. However, people still ask, how on earth is that possible? Does the earth have an electrical charge and the earth having current and giving it off to us with every barefoot step we make? How is that possible? Get the answers here.

Microcurrent Therapy is not new

Microcurrent electrotherapy

Microcurrent is a branch of electrotherapy or the use of electrical currents to treat diseases and other health problems. The use of electricity to stimulate the body goes way back in history.

The use of electricity for healing had been used by ancient civilizations. In Egypt, Greece and Rome, they used electric eels in therapy for headaches and neuralgia. It may sound outdated for modern health and wellness procedures but the effect of the electric current coming from the eels was well-regarded for its beneficial healing, and historic records proved that succeeding generations used it as well.

In the early 1900s electrotherapy was big in Europe as well as in America, and electrotherapy had become hugely popular with doctors who used electricity to successfully treat an amazing range of different diseases. The demise of electrotherapy started in 1910 when the Flexner Report outlawed electrotherapy, and by the 1950s all electric equipment had ended up in back rooms with sheets put over them. Doctors could loose their license when practicing any of it.

It was only in the 1970s-1980s when electrotherapy resurfaced.  Several types of electrotherapy came into the picture: interferential therapy, self controlled electrical neuro adaptive regulation (SCENAR), transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), dermal electical neuro adaptive stimulation (DENAS), and other acronyms.

Microcurrent and BodyElectricOne of the most intensive research on electricity and healing was conducted by Björn E. W. Nordenström. His researches contributed to the growing knowledge of electrotherapy. A member of the Nobel Prize Committee in 1983 he showed how our tissues generated electrical stimulus potential that is not related to the nervous system’s electrical activity.  This was followed by Dr. Robert Becker’s work, The Body Electric. Becker showed that endogenous electricity, along with adaptations in the polarity of tissue elicited through injury or illness, may actually promote the primary mechanism of the healing process - electricity.

Around that time, the Russian SCENAR conducted an extensive clinical trials on 18,255 patients from all major diseases group: circulation, respiratory, digestive, musculoskeletal, male and female urogenital and nervous systems. The results showed that using microcurrent SCENAR therapy on these patients achieved an average 80.25% cure rates.

1,245 people with diseases of the circulations system - 72.46% cured
2,172 people with diseases of the digestive system - 88.12% cured
345 people with diseases of the ear - 89.86% cured
7,320 people with diseases & trauma of musculoskeletal system - 90.40% cured
2,908 people diseases of respiratory system - 89.40% cured
1,447 people with female urogenital diseases - 77.11% cured
1,872 people with male urogenital diseases - 87.06% cured

These results from over 30 years ago, from tiny electrical currents, are still being obtained today to solve your pain, boost your energy and rejuvenate tissues.

Microcurrent therapy is more than skin deep

 

Does microcurrent therapy work?Microcurrent facial benefits is just one aspect of the phenomenal results you can reliably get from using microcurrent therapy. Bear in mind that microcurrent stimulates the very nerve fibers of your body. As a result, it can bring fantastic results, not just facial toning, facial lifting and anti aging rejuvenation.

For instance, gold medalist sports coach Chris Hoffman discovered the amazing healing benefits of microcurrent thanks to a long search on the internet and trained with microcurrent expert Benedick Howard at eBodyFUSION.

Now, Chris uses DENAS PCM 5 (the 5th generation model of the DENAS PCM 6) and ENART 911, helping his athletes get back on track twice as fast. No matter what kind of sports injury, his athletes recover 2X faster so that they and the team can keep winning as if nothing happened.

A former soccer player and Bikram yoga instructor Sean Coakley had a dreadful accident when he fell off a cliff. He broke both scapula, his collarbone, all the ribs on his left side and several microfractures in his spine. He went to the best osteopaths, chiropractors, physical therapists and acupuncturists hoping to relieve his pain. The chronic pain got worse and he refused medications and it affected his personal life. He had trouble interacting with his wife and kids, and the pain made going to social gatherings impossible. He spent a lot of his time in seclusion and endured the pain, day after day.

Sean used the Avazzia Best Pro 1, a hand held microcurrent machine for pain relief and solving the underlying issues. He trained with Benedick Howard for 3 months at eBodyFUSION.  At first, but only for a few weeks, he was skeptical about the benefits of using microcurrent therapy biofeedback and years later he still has zero pain.

 

Understanding electrical current in the practice of microcurrent therapy

 

microcurrent therapy comparison chart
The specific frequencies and waveforms of electrical stimulation used for health, sports medicine and cosmetology

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) –Often called e-stim, these devices cycle specific “waveform”.  EMS is effective for muscle stimulation, contraction, and re-education.

Transcutaneous Electrical Neuro Stimulators (TENS) –TENS units are used to provide relief from pain and more recently other conditions too.

Electroacupuncture - devices are used as a substitute for acupuncture needles to augment the flow of energy in the meridians.

Interferential Current - achieves deep tissue penetration with a combination of two electrical currents and large impulses.  Interferential is primarily used for joint injury, trauma disorders, and pain.

SCENAR Self Controlled Electrical Neuro Adaptive Regulation - is a microcurrent therapy diagnostic and treatment handheld portable device.  It is specifically designed to also stimulate the long peptogenic "C" fibers to release neuropeptides and neromodulators.  It automatically diagnoses and measures the skin impedance and then delivers a Measured Dose of electrical waveforms and frequencies to the skin in order to correct any electrical imbalances and to prevent the body from adapting to the stimulation.

Sinusoidal or Diadynamic Current – this current has two waveforms, MF (monophase) and DF (diphase).  It can be used singularly or in tandem.  The current generally produces a surged rhythmical muscle contraction suitable for large areas of the body and not for facial muscle stimulation.

Faradic Current –An alternating and interrupted current, resulting to a mechanical reaction. It is often referred to as “passive exercise,” as it noticeably can cause muscles to contract involuntarily. It can generate erythema, increase metabolism and circulation.  It is popular in Europe for cosmetology purposes.

Galvanic Current – Galvanic current (very early devices) works on the sensory nerves and motor nerves, instigating a prickly or stinging sensation and is generally used to introduce solutions into the tissue (iontophoresis) or for disencrustation.  Not recommended for “facial toning”!

Frequency Specific Microcurrent - uses two frequencies to augment the effect and based on research done in the early 1900s.

At any time the body has over 100,000 resonating electrical impulses that transmit signals through living tissues, utilizing electrons, chemicals, and electromagnetic bonds.  The body’s tissues are lined with water-hydrated matrixes that act as semiconductors to permit the transfer of electricity.  Each cell, tissue, and organ has its own specific frequency that synchronizes its activity within the body.  Microcurrent supports the intricate biological and physiological phenomenon that has been exhibited throughout electrotherapeutics in clinical history – electricity will take path of least resistance as it flows through tissue.

 

Nobel Prize for Microcurrent Therapy

 

Microcurrent therapy - Dr. Bert Sakman and Dr. Edwin NeherDr. Bert Sakman and Dr. Edwin Neher received the 1991 Nobel Prize for Physiology/Medicine for their work regarding the response of microcurrent on the physiology of human cellular membranes.  According to Sakman and Neher, microcurrent allows cells to “communicate” as if sending signals to one another and speeding up the healing process by releasing the needed enzymes.

Dr. Sakman’s and Dr. Neher’s research further illustrates that each cell contains between 20 and 44 different ion channels, each being specific for a particular nutrient: calcium, magnesium, sodium, and so on. They determined that electroporation of the cell via electrical stimulation could detoxify the cells through pulsation.  Through electroporation it was possible to exchange both toxins and nutrients via cellular membranes.  This discovery has had great implications for the medical field.

Microcurrent therapy rule: Less is more

 

Microcurrent Therapy - Schulz-Arndt principleThe idea that less electrical current is better than more electric current was discovered by Hugo Schulz and Rudolf Arndt. Known as the Schulz-Arndt principle, this became the backbone of microcurrent therapy. Strong electrical current caused skin burns, discomfort, and tissues to atrophy, which only aggravated the patient’s condition.

Microcurrent delivers less than 650 microamperes, is bi-polar, and is considered sub-sensory, implying that the intensity does not cause any visual jolting muscular movement.  Sub-sensory activity also implicates that the recipient of the treatment should feel “no sensation.”

Does microcurrent therapy hurt?

 

Microcurrent Therapy - shockNo, well yes. Microcurrent therapy is said to not be painful.  However, I can assure you that it can be painful if you turn up the power too much!!

Less is More, right!

The skin reacts to the electrical stimulation based on a number of factors.  Remember that the amount of current flowing through the tissue is dependent on voltage and resistance of the tissue.  The electric current flows from the electrode, on older microcurrent machines through gel or oil, penetrates the skin, stimulates the underlying tissue and flows back to the electrode.  Fat and bones are greatest resistant for electrical current.  And the sensations are felt as “tingles”, the finger tips and lips are particularly sensitive.

Even though Microcurrent has a low current it is perfect for charging the cells with life giving electricity and electrons just like charging a car battery.
