    Default Bemer

    Has anybody here had any experience with electromagnetic field therapy. A couple of friends were talking about these Bemer machines and I had no idea what they were talking about but they swear by them. It looks like they are sold through a MLM which makes me have my doubts but just wondering if anybody had any info.

    PEMFT devices have some legitimate uses, but so do essential oils.

    The problem arises when unscrupulous MLM types make claims that are accepted and promulgated by credulous nitwits. The Bemer is sold as a "general wellness device" which means they are prohibited from making any claim about fixing/curing/treating a specific medical condition.

    If crystals, essential oils, and other various quackery are your thing then you should consider a Bemer, but any legitimate medical use of a PEMFT device requires a prescription.

    What are the legitimate uses for essential oils? As a pesticide maybe?

    Pesticide, perfume, perhaps a topical soother, and of course the placebo effect.

    I wasn't intending "legitimate" in the first sentence to mean "medical".
