Health Wellness Devices were developed based on research conducted in the mid 1970s by the scientist W.R. Adey, who discovered that it is possible to stimulate the biological system by using extremely low frequency and low intensity electromagnetic fields.
Over the following years, Carl Blackman, a scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), discovered that these results were critically dependent on the direction of application of the electromagnetic fields.
In 1984 Prof. A.R. Liboff, interested at the time in the biological effects of cosmic radiation, hypothesized that the discoveries of Adey and Blackman could easily be explained by assuming that the terrestrial magnetic field, or geomagnetic field (GMF), interacted with the applied variable fields, producing a phenomenon known as ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) directly inside tissues.
The phenomenon of ICR is well known to physics: it requires the simultaneous application of two parallel magnetic fields, one static and one variable through time. Assuming that the effects observed in the laboratory by Adey and Blackburn were caused by ICR, Liboff demonstrated that, on the basis of the frequencies used and the values of the GMF, the range of intensity of the GMF on the Earth’s surface corresponded with ICR frequencies, so that very low physiologically significant frequencies were capable of increasing the wellbeing of people.
In 1987 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the first medical application of ICR-like therapy to treat delayed consolidation of bone fractures, and a few years later a second medical application was approved to assist spinal fusion (in cases of spina bifida). These treatments were administered locally in the area of the lesions or symptoms.
It has been established that electromagnetic fields that are similar in intensity and frequency to the GMF can be safely used to promote health and well being. Health Wellness Devices generate electromagnetic fields whose characteristics are compatible to the GMF.
Health Wellness Devices can help promote relaxation, helps with stress management, mental acuity, helps to promote sleep management and improves general mobility. They are used to promote well being and support the work of healthcare providers during traditional courses of patient therapy.
