Used at most fast excitatory synapses in the brain and spinal cord. And also at most synapses that are "modifiable", i.e. capable of increasing or decreasing in strength (thought to be involved in the brain's main memory-storage).
Excessive GLUTAMATE in the synapse can lead to excitoxicity causing cell death. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is commonly added to foods today to fool the brain into thinking the food tastes better by causing neurons to fire excessively ---this so called excitoxicity can cause nerve damage.
Chronic low-level inflammation (CLII) involved in almost all health problems
"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
