PEMF and Lyme Disease

PEMF and Lyme Disease


What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is an infection caused by a spirochete (say “SPY-ROH-KEET”) that humans can get from the bite of an infected deer tick. The spirochete’s scientific name is Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease is called “The Great Imitator” because its symptoms mimic many other diseases. It can affect any organ of the body, including the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, and the heart.

The Curatron system will not cure Lyme Disease, however, it can help considerably with the treatment of the symptoms such as pain and inflammation. What we can say is that the effects of the Curatron 2000 Family will place the body in a better place in terms of blood oxygenation, reduction of toxins allowing the body to hopefully heal itself.

Lyme Disease patients who are affected by wandering pain can also experience very quick pain relief using our FLASH PEMF System.

The FLASH System is a different kind of PEMF.

People usually get Lyme disease from ticks infected with Lyme spirochetes. Most human cases are caused by the nymphal, or immature, form of the tick. Nymphs are about the size of a poppy seed. Because their bite is painless, many people do not realize they have been bitten.

About Ticks

Ticks are tiny crawling bugs in the spider family that feed by sucking blood from animals. If the animal is carrying Lyme disease spirochetes, the tick sucks them up as it feeds and they multiply in the tick’s gut. The tick may then transfer them into the next animal it feeds on.

Where Do Ticks Live?

Tick density is linked to local micro-climate, flora, and fauna and can vary dramatically from one spot to another even within a single yard. Density and infection rates also vary from year to year in a single location.

Ticks prefer humid environments. Adult ticks climb up grasses and bushes on the edges of trails to wait for an animal to pass by. In hot, dry weather they are less active. Immature ticks are often found in leaf litter under oak trees. Nymphs may climb up onto downed logs.

What about PEMF? How can it help?

PEMF Systems do not cure Lyme disease but the Curatron can help reduce the effect of the symptoms such as pain and swelling. Anecdotally, we hear from time to time how high power of the Curaton systems can reduce swelling and pain, improve circulation in the soft tissue around an inflammation and reduce the symptomatic challenges.

Here are a couple of links you may find useful to read about PEMF and Lyme Disease.





Introducing The Curatron FLASH

Introducing The Curatron FLASH

2017 is beginning with a bang or maybe a FLASH. Ben Philipson, the developer of the Curatron family of products has done it again. The new FLASH is what the industry calls a RINGER system. I don’t really know why but perhaps you do. The FLASH is new and it’s function is to provide very fast but perhaps short-term relief. The Curatron 2000 Family of true PEMF High Magnetic Flux Density machines take a little longer perhaps to effect pain relief but the effects are longer lasting and sometimes permanent.

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from a new customer asking about the FLASH. I am placing a copy of the text from that email below along with my reply.

I am interested in the Curatron FLASH but I need to find out some details.

  1. In my reading, I came across that it is a ringer and oscillating PEMF. does that mean it is like your other oscillating machines below 900 G then it’s different at 2000 G that’s when it’s a ringer? If you could help me make sense of this because I like the effects of both types of machines but don’t have the money to buy both?
  2. What types of applicators are available for the flash?
  3. With the software for the flash is it the same as the software for your pc model which has the 68+ programs?
  4. Can I buy the software later down the road? Is there a shipping cost?
  5. When I get the software how much freedom do I have with creating programs like freq, time, and power?

Please tell me all the freq, time, and power settings I would have to create a program.

My reply was as follows:

I had to check a few things and do some website updating before I could reply properly.

  • In my reading, I came across that it is a ringer and oscillating PEMF. does that mean it is like your other oscillating machines below 900 G then it’s different at 2000 G that’s when it’s a ringer? If you could help me make sense of this because I like the effects of both types of machines but don’t have the money to buy both?
    • The term ‘ringer’ was created a couple of years ago and, for the life of me, I can’t really define this type of PEMF system by using the word ‘ringer’ The new FLASH actually has a peak intensity of 4000 Gauss, quite a bit higher than our competition.
    • Please take a look at the table on this page: See
    • Perhaps the key difference between this and the Curatron 2000 PEMF family is that the FLASH will make the pain in a localized area go away quite quickly, perhaps within a treatment or two. Whereas; the Curatron 2000 will take longer but the effects will be longer lasting and perhaps permanent.
  • What types of applicators are available for the FLASH?
  • With the software for the flash is it the same as the software for your PC model which has the 68+ programs?
    • The software is different. It will have no pre-programmed protocols, those are built into the machine itself. You will be able to create your own protocols, store them as a treatment name or a patient’s name in the case of clinical use. One cannot directly program ‘intensity’ as that is a fallout of the setting of the frequency. As you go up in frequency, the intensity declines. This is a function of ALL ringer systems. I will write an analogy in the last answer below to help you understand the way a ‘ringer’ system operates.
  • Can I buy the software later down the road? Is there a shipping cost?
    • Yes, the software will be available for you to purchase and download later on. There will be a charge for the shipping of the cable which you will need to connect your MAC or PC to the FLASH control unit.
  • When I get the software how much freedom do I have with creating programs like freq, time, and power? Please tell me all the freq, time, and power settings I would have to create a program.
    • The software will permit you to create a stage time in one-minute increments and for that stage, you will select a frequency. Take a look at the images at the bottom of this page (
    • The intensity is a fallout of the frequency setting. Look at the table near the top right of this page and you will see that as frequency rises, the intensity per pulse drops off. Note, that at 0.67 Hz, the intensity is 4000 Gauss (400,000 micro Tesla) and at 33 Hz, the intensity falls to 200 Gauss (20,000 micro Tesla)
    • Imagine the capacitor (Energy Storage Device) is at full charge. When you dump energy at a slow rep rate then all the energy from the capacitor can be dumped into the load (in this case, the coil) and then it will have time to recharge before being switched again, assuming a low rep rate.
    • At higher frequencies, the capacitor begins dumping its stored energy and does not have time to recharge if it needs to send another pulse to the load (coil). With charging time available limited by frequency, power per pulse drops off. This is a function that is present in ALL PAPIMI and Ringer systems. Overcoming this would be extremely expensive and a true engineering challenge. This challenge is met in radar systems. These radar systems cost several million dollars. The technology used in these very expensive radar systems is unnecessary in ringer systems.


Health Canada has Licenced the CURATRON for use in Canada – Great News Eh!

Health Canada has Licenced the CURATRON for use in Canada – Great News Eh!

As I’m a British Born Canadian living in the USA. It makes me very happy to have learned that Curatronic has been granted a licence for the Curatron Family of PEMF systems for use in Canada.

Health Canada Licence the Curatron 2000

December 2, 2016

Health Canada Licence / License


Curatronic has successfully registered the Curatron with Health Canada as a Class 2 Medical Device.

Curatronic offers different models to choose from according to individual needs. A wealth of information can be found on the website, both extensive technical explanations as well as practical applications. Ben Philipson, CEO of Curatronic Ltd. said “We are very excited to be the only company in the world to obtain a Medical Device Licence in Canada for our full body

Ben Philipson, CEO of Curatronic Ltd. said “We are very excited to be the only company in the world to obtain a Medical Device Licence in Canada for our Full Body High-Intensity PEMF systems. Clinics in Canada are now able to legally treat patients with our state-of-the-art Curatron PEMF systems. Further information can be found at this Curatron website

Curatronic is a leading innovator in Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy. Founded in 2000, the company has already established itself as the undisputed leader in the field of PEMF therapy devices in more than 90 countries around the world.

Amjo Corp is among the first distributors around the world and we remain the most knowledgeable and effective distributor of the Curatron in the USA and around the world. Amjo has represented Curatronic since May of 2000.

Technical Excellence and Reliability

Technical Excellence and Reliability

As a person involved with the electronics and medical business for over forty years. I have never, yes NEVER, come across a product with the reliability and performance of the Curatron. For over fifteen years, Amjo has represented Curatronic Systems. In that period of time I have seen fewer than perhaps five equipment failures. That level of reliability simply does not exist in other electronic devices and each of these problems was dealt with immediately and I don’t believe that any of our customers was without their Curatron for more than a week.

If one adds to this remarkable reliability record, I can add that fewer than five systems have been returned to Amjo because of a customer’s satisfaction. The Curatron always meets or exceeds our customer’s expectations.

If you need help, then we are always here.

I decided to write this post as I became a little angry with one of our competitors whose news release implied that they now have computer control and as I looked into it, I found their iPhone and Android Apps are just vehicles to spread the word about their hardware.

The only system offering Computer Controlled PEMF Systems for clinical use is the Curatron 2000 PC and Curatron 2000 3D

One of our competitors today, released a smartphone app for Android and iPhone. I thought I’d download it to check it out but I became a little fearful. The install screen warned me that this App simply was too risky to install. The list of things it had access to were well outside the range of what it should have access to? Why would the app need access to my camera? Why would it need access to my photos and media files? Why would it need access to my microphone? Why would it need my device id and phone number?

The actual list on the install screen is:

This app has access to:

  • Device & app history
    Allows the app to view one or more of: information about activity on the device, which apps are running, browsing history and bookmarks
  • Location
    Uses the device’s location
  • Photos/Media/Files
    Uses one or more of: files on the device such as images, videos, or audio, the device’s external storage
  • Camera
    Uses the device’s camera(s)
  • Microphone
    Uses the device’s microphone(s)
  • Wi-Fi connection information
    Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and names of connected Wi-Fi devices
  • Device ID & call information
    Allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call
  • Other
    receive data from Internet

I opted not to install it and I’d prefer not to identify the competitor.
The install info on my Android reads:

Discover the Secret that Keeps Top Athletes in the Game a and now YOU!

ADDED July 18, 2016

I am an Android user. Over the past weekend I received some criticism from an iPhone user who said that my rant about permissions was not accurate. Below, I have included the details that Google Play displays when installing this app.
Version 1.0 can access:
Device & app history
  • read sensitive log data
  • retrieve running apps
  • precise location (GPS and network-based)
  • read phone status and identity
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage
  • modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
  • read the contents of your USB storage
  • take pictures and videos
  • record audio
Wi-Fi connection information
  • view Wi-Fi connections
Device ID & call information
  • read phone status and identity
  • receive data from Internet
  • read Google service configuration
  • prevent device from sleeping
  • full network access
  • view network connections
  • send sticky broadcast
  • pair with Bluetooth devices
  • access Bluetooth settings
  • control vibration
  • draw over other apps

These sorts of warnings scare me off. I did not do the install 

Not being an iPhone user, I did try twice and came back to the Android world, where I’ll stay.

There are a couple of options that came to mind:

  • iPhone software does not advise the user what risks he or she is taking.
  • The Apple folks required the developer to clean up his act.
  • The iPhone software allows items like the above and does not give the user the chance.


Plantar Fasciitis is just plain painful (Healing the Heel)

Plantar Fasciitis is just plain painful (Healing the Heel)

This tale is a little old in that I contracted Plantar Fasciitis one day and learned how important my feet are when I’m trying to walk. Up and down stairs was no problem because I could sit on my butt and transfer myself to the next step one at a time. It was a little slow and bumpy but it works. On the other hand, or perhaps the other foot, walking was virtually impossible.

I did manage to get to a chiropodist, foot doctor or podiatrist, whatever the proper name should be. I received a cortisone injection and a suggestion that I roll my foot on a frozen drink bottle. The frozen drink thing actually helped but its effects were short lived.

I am a bit scatterbrained once in a while, because finally, I remembered that I sold Curatron PEMF systems at

I did happen to own a Curatron 2000 XP and High Energy Coil “A” This combination would provide a 450 Gauss level of magnetic flux density. The results were amazing, within two to three days, I was walking well and within two weeks my foot was essentially normal again. This experience was over ten years ago and I have never had a recurrence. I doubt if everyone would have the same experience. We have sold systems to folks with Plantar Fasciitis over the years and they all had a similar experience to the one I had.


MLM Customers Beware – CAVEAT EMPTOR

MLM Customers Beware – CAVEAT EMPTOR

I have always disliked MLM (Multi Level Marketing) companies and now I have one more reason to dislike them.

I was astounded on May 3rd, that BEMER’s distributor policy does not allow product returns. I learned this from a customer who attempted to cancel his order for a BEMER before he received his unit. He told me that he placed his order for the BEMER over the phone and was offered the opportunity to become a distributor for the BEMER by paying $300.00 more at the time of order. What our prospective customer did not know was that a BEMER distributor does not have the same rights as a BEMER standard end user, the distributor does not have the right to return a product or cancel an undelivered order.

Our customer was proud that he had placed an order for a BEMER and bragged a little to a friend. His friend told him that he might have made an error. He told him that there are systems such as the Curatron available with much higher power and effectiveness. This resulted in a phone call to me, the customer said that he’d call BEMER, cancel the order and place an order with us. To his surprise he learned that he could not cancel his order and also that he would not be permitted to return the unit as he was a distributor.

I guess one really does need to check the fine print.

This post is actually being written on the day I learned of this issue but I have chosen to schedule it’s release on this blog until July 3rd to make sure that our customer and BEMER have a chance to work this out before this gets published.

Spark Systems versus PEMF Systems

Spark Systems versus PEMF Systems

We consider the Curatron to be a full PEMF system in that it genuinely generates magnetic pulses rather than RF pulses, The PMT120 and others generate probably what can be called an RF pulse similar to those generated by Marconi, Tesla and others demonstrating early forms of radio communication. Marconi used a spark gap that would fire when the voltage across it was high enough to discharge across a preset air gap in the way that lightning occurs when a cloud’s voltage is so high that it has to discharge by creating a spark between the cloud and the ground.

Recall the famous drinking bird who recharges with water to cool himself down

Recall the famous drinking bird who recharges with water to cool himself down

Think of a spark gap and a capacitor in the same way that you would think of water flowing into a tipping bucket that tips and empties itself when the water level reaches a point when gravity takes over causing the bucket to tip. In the case of Marconi and others, they used a tuned circuit so the energy dispensed when their spark gap fired would generate a single frequency and its harmonics into an antenna. The spark systems are similar but there is no tuned circuit and the antenna is the coil or length of wire attached.

A true PEMF system creates a magnetic field caused by a high current in a coil like an electromagnet. PEMF systems are highly controllable. Spark systems generate a series of pulses. The pulse magnitude is dependent on the size of the capacitor (bucket) and the pulse frequency (time between pulses) is dependent on the firing point of the spark gap, basically a semi-controllable bolt of lighting. Maximum voltages in the Curatron system are very low, perhaps 100 Volts or so in comparison to tens of thousands of volts in a spark system where the voltages can reach 30 to 40 kV It’s the high current passing through coil(s) that generate magnetic energy.

It’s a shame that the spark systems use the PEMF name. They really should be called something else to differentiate them from PEMF machines. I remember when MRI machine technology was called NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). the word nuclear, scared everyone and the name became MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) was born. Of course the word nuclear was used as it is the nucleus of the atoms in our bodies that was referenced, not nuclear energy.

In January 2008, J.N., a trim, active older female, came into the Viera Diagnostic Center and was diagnosed with a modern Lunar bone densitometer.  According to the classification of the World Health Organization, a T-score lower than -2.5 shows that a person suffers from osteoporosis.  (more…)

Pooping Dogs and Magnetic Fields Align!

Pooping Dogs and Magnetic Fields Align!

Dogs-PoopIt’s peculiar that perfectly picky pooches prefer pooping in unexpected ways.

Dogs preferred to excrete with the body being aligned along the North–South axis under calm MF conditions. This directional behavior was abolished under unstable MF. The best predictor of the behavioral switch was the rate of change in declination, i.e., polar orientation of the MF.

This is found in a paper published in 2013 the magazine “Frontiers in Zoology”

PBS reported on this in early 2014. See >>>
