MME is a treatment method that consists of the application of high (3,000 to 5,000 gauss) direct current electromagnetic fields. An MME device consists of two very large and strong electromagnets, with the patient lying in a focal point between the two electromagnets.
The human body is electromagnetic, being composed largely of charged particles such as atoms, electrons, protons, and ions (e.g. potassium, sodium, etc.). These all perform vital life functions.
The Theory behind MME treatment goes like this:
When a patient is placed in the MME device there is a temporary increase in the magnetic force on the atoms composing the cells of his/her body in the area of the MME focal point. The force results in a higher velocity of some of the orbiting electrons. This increase in velocity of some electrons and not others causes precession or wobble of an atom and a higher charge on the valence electrons. Combined, the higher velocity and increased charge, leads to enhanced electron transfer. Electron transfer is the basic action in all chemical reactions in the body.
So, the magnetic field of the MME device acts as a catalyst to improve chemical reactions occurring in the human body. This improves a variety of body functions in the area of the MME focal point, such as oxygen carrying capacity, assimilation of nutrients, manufacture of enzymes, metabolic waste removal, reduction of free radicals, tissue regeneration, and most importantly healing.
