Microcurrent is a method of treatment that falls into fields of medicine, such as Bioenergetic Medicine or Electromedicine. Microcurrent Therapy has been studied for nearly a century, but only recently has it seen a reappearance in the medical field. It explores the use of microcurrent frequencies to treat a variety of health conditions, including those physical and emotional in nature. Microcurrent therapy devices utilize specific frequencies to enhance health and well-being.
You may not think of it, but your body is a complex electrical system. Your brain, your heart, and cells are all electrically active. Electricity is how the cells in your body interconnect with each other – and good communication between cells, organs, and tissues promotes healing. In fact, it’s key to good health.
With microcurrent, you actually use electricity to change and correct how this communication happens in the body to promote healing and pain relief. Microcurrent is a medical technology that gently delivers electrical impulses at an extremely low frequencies, typically between 0.5 and 2500 hertz. These exact same electrical frequencies are found naturally in the human body. This is significant because if you want to use microcurrent to get your body functioning normally again, you need to use an electrical current compatible with what your body is already using.
Microcurrent is so body-friendly that it doesn’t shut down, disrupt, or cause shock or injury to the body’s systems. It also doesn’t make you feel well when you’re not, like many conventional pain treatments. Instead, the microcurrent helps to gently correct communication of the systems in ways that promote real healing, regeneration, and long-term pain resolution.
Microcurrent is the only electrical treatment that uses the same range of frequencies as the body itself – triggering long-lasting results.
Microcurrent therapy has already been widely used in the cosmetic industry, especially in facial equipment as in anti-wrinkle/anti-aging devices, as well as in Acupuncture, injury recovery, and the treatment of pain. Microcurrent devices are approved by the FDA in the category of TENS devices.
Conventional TENS devices deliver milliamp current, which blocks pain messages that are trying to the brain. Microcurrent, on the other hand, delivers a very low-level DC current, which is a 1000 times less than traditional TENS devices. It has been shown that during microcurrent treatment production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) can be increased up to 500%. ATP is a most important energy source for all biochemical reactions in the human body.
Dr Robert Becker, MD, an Orthopedic surgeon and author of “The Body Electric” noted that because the body’s nervous system runs on DC current, the most effective healing occurs with DC stimulation. It is noted that the human nervous system appears to not respond well to strong, disruptive stimuli such as delivered by TENS units.
German psychiatrist Rudolf Arndt (1835-1900) and German pharmacologist Hugo Schulz (1853-1932) stated that “weak stimuli increase physiologic activity, while strong stimuli inhibit activity.” When working with pain, it suggests that less electricity could be more effective than more of it. Arndt-Schulz law may also explain why micro-amperage currents may be more effective than milli-amperage currents for pain relief.
Avazzia Microcurrent Biofeedback treatments are available. Avazzia RSI device is an FDA approved, single channel microcurrent device to treat chronic and acute pain. It may also help to decrease inflammation, accelerate healing, detoxify, reduce swelling, reduce sinus pressure, improve organ functions, reduce neuropathy, reduce appearance of scars, reduce adhesions, and many more.
What Does it Feel Like? Microcurrent, when properly used, is entirely painless. Many people report not feeling anything at all. Those who do feel something report a slight tingling sensation or even an overall feeling of relaxation. When performing microcurrent protocols, you will quickly figure out the ideal intensity level that works best for you based on your results and how you feel afterward.
Side Effects? The beauty of microcurrent is that it doesn’t carry the same side effects of traditional pain treatments like long recovery periods, painful injections, or invasive surgeries. Best of all, microcurrent is not addictive or habit-forming. Still, it’s always smart to consult with your doctor before embarking on a new health regimen or treatment. Those with problems relating to the brain, patients with pacemakers, and pregnant women should approach microcurrent only with explicit approval from their doctor.
Why Does Microcurrent Work Better Than Other Treatments for Chronic Pain and Disease?
Inflammation is the root cause of almost every disease known to man. Inflammation is a natural reaction by the immune system to the presence of abnormal conditions in the tissues. It happens when the body tries to protect a damaged area from an infection, or a toxin. And it is an electrochemical event.
When you experience inflammation, the flow of electrical communication in the body is blocked. It’s not meant to last more than a few days, but when it does, the problems arise. When the body develops an inflammatory over-response, chronic disease and pain that can last for years takes hold.
To resolve your pain permanently, you need first to resolve the inflammation. Only then can the blockages in your body’s communication flow be addressed and resolved.
