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.

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.

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.


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

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.

Case Study: Curatron improves bone density!

Daily treatment with the Curatron device makes bones stronger and decreases fracture risk!

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…)

Square Wave Gated Sine Wave Carrier Frequency

The wave form generated and the power or magnetic flux density of our applicators is what sets us apart from all the others.

The Curatron waveform is unique and very difficult to create. Other systems use simple waveforms such as a simple square wave, a simple triangle wave or a a simple sawtooth wave. Each of those do not provide a high slew rate, rate of rise or Speed of Induction that is all too important in the world of PEMF. (more…)
