The electric currents then induce seizure towards the patients, which makes neurons fire rapidly, increasing metabolism within the brain. This process may be painful, but modern day doctors use anesthetics and sedatives so patients won’t feel any pain. Doctors do not actually know how this process works, but patients with severe depression who do not respond to other therapies usually Author: Lecio. As the blood passes through the electric fields produced within the electric conductive tubing 11 it will be subjected to and treated by biologically compatible electric current flow through the blood or other body fluid with a current density of from one microampere per square millimeter (1 A/mm) of electrode cross sectional area exposed to. An electrical injury is damage to the skin or internal organs when a person comes into direct contact with an electrical current. The human body conducts electricity very well. That means electricity passes very easily throughout the body. Direct contact with electrical current can be deadly. While some electrical burns look minor, there still.

The issue of the use of electrotherapy for blood electrification and disease treatment. By: Steve Haltiwanger, M.D., C.C.N. I have been asked to write a synopsis of the scientific uses of electrotherapy devices. I am a medical doctor who was Board Certified in Neurology and Psychiatry in   Originally, tDCS targeted a specific brain region by sending an electrical current first through the skin, skull, blood vessels and cerebral fluid.

Some researchers say that approach makes it difficult to determine where the current actually enters and exits the brain. Electric Currents And An 'Emotional Awakening' For One Man With Autism: Shots - Health News Switched On author John Elder Robison says the emotional empathy he gained after receiving transcranial.

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is a claimed sensitivity to electromagnetic fields, to which negative symptoms are has no scientific basis and is not a recognised medical are characterized by a "variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to electromagnetic fields".

Those who are self-described with EHS report Risks: Nocebo. Electrotherapy is the use of electrical energy as a medical treatment.

In medicine, the term electrotherapy can apply to a variety of treatments, including the use of electrical devices such as deep brain stimulators for neurological disease. The term has also been applied specifically to the use of electric current to speed wound : D The CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus.

There are ongoing investigations to learn more. This parasitic neglected tropical disease (NTD) affects over million people in 72 countries worldwide. Find out which antiviral drugs CDC recommends for people at high risk of flu complications. Infectious disease may be an unavoidable fact of life, but there are many strategies available to help us protect ourselves from infection and to treat a disease once it has developed.

Some are simple steps that individuals can take; others are national or global methods of detection, prevention, and : Madeline Drexler.

Most chapters start with a title, a brief description of the topic, common clinical signs and symptoms of each disease, the diagnosis and differentials, investigations, treatments and.

Most electrotherapy machines kill or eradicate viruses and bacteria (some machines even work for fungi and some cases of parasites). It works by using frequency or emitting electric current that is induced to the body to strike the viruses, bacteria or fungi.

After treatment cover the body over the bronchial tubes and the upper part of the back with warm flannel. BRIGHT' S DISEASE. Electrical treatment is of great value in this disease, especially in its first stages.

Use sponge electrodes and place one over each kidney. Use the secondary current. This condition is known as “Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome” (PTLDS), although it is often called “chronic Lyme disease.” For details on research into “chronic Lyme disease” and long-term treatment trials sponsored by NIH, visit the visit the National Institutes of Health Lyme Disease web site external icon.

References. Hu LT. by Barry Keate. Meniere’s disease is of unknown (idiopathic) origin, so treatment is is recognized by a combination of symptoms: extreme vertigo, progressive hearing loss, tinnitus and ear fullness.

The good news is that our understanding of the disease has recently increased, and there is a new treatment which consistently produces positive results.

Bioelectric therapy is a safe, drug-free treatment option for people in pain. It is used to treat some chronic pain and acute pain conditions. It relieves pain by blocking pain messages to the brain.

Thanks, Angel and Borderlyme, yes, I suppose these increased and intensified since starting Lyme treatment -- but I'd say that covers about a 3 yr period. And it is not only at night, it is daily also.

Again, I distinguish between 'shock-like' feelings, more like a shooting electrical current -- I do not know how else to describe this. The process of recording of the electrical currents of the heart muscle Elephantiasis A parasitic disease generally seen in the tropics that involves excessive swelling, usually of the external reproductive organs and legs and caused by obstruction of the lymphatic vessels by parasites.

Defeating Diseases with Energy. The cell's mitochondria generate 90% of a body's energy. Could scientists harness that power to fight disease and perhaps even aging. Nikola Tesla. Called a madman by some, a genius by others, and an enigma by nearly everyone, Nikola Tesla was possibly the greatest inventor the world has ever known.

"He created machines that flooded the human body with electrical currents and strong vibrations, intended to soothe aches and promote healing. but also a method of killing. Talking about the cardiac electrical system and abnormal heart rhythms can be very confusing.

When we talk about heart disease, many people think of blocked coronary arteries that can result in a heart attack or the need for bypass surgery. Yet, problems with the electrical system may occur even if your heart muscle is normal. The current level should be chosen based on the amount the patient can handle.

Usually choose a small amount of current to stimulate the point for 1 to 2 minutes, and once the patient becomes accustomed to the stimulation, increase the current.
