A Brief History of Electromedicine
Electromedicine, or the use of electricity to treat physical ailments, is considered one of the oldest and most documented sciences known. Medical professionals of ancient Greece learned that the electrical impulses emitted from electric eels in clinical foot baths relieved pain and produced a favorable influence on the blood circulation. Doctors Largus and Dioscorides (cc 46 AD) documented substantial therapeutic results with electrical currents and circulatory disorders and in the management of pain from neuralgia, headache, arthritis and gout.
In the 1700s, European physicians used controlled electrical currents from electrostatic generators almost exclusively for numerous medical problems involving pain and circulatory dysfunction. During that period, Benjamin Franklin also documented pain relief by using electrical currents for "frozen shoulder."
In fact in the early 1900s, approximately 50% of all U.S. physicians used electromedicine in their practice daily. Unfortunately for the science, an incorrect and unfair report emerged at this time. This report, produced by powerful special interest groups, discredited the value of both electromedicine and nutrition in medical practice. With fear of condemnation from certain medical institutions (that were funded by the special interest groups), almost all American physicians abandoned electromedicine and nutrition from their practices.
Although nutrition has re-established itself as a credible medical discipline in the U.S., electromedicine is just now starting to re-emerge and is becoming more widespread and accepted for treatment of Pain. Due to its unique technology, people are seeing the fastest and longest lasting results using the WellnessPro electrotherapy system.
In summary, electromedicine is fast becoming recognized as a very safe, efficacious and certainly one of the most cost effective treatments of choice in the 21st Century, and it has ZERO side effects! Time will show other great benefits of electromedicine and its affects in restoring and maintaining functional homeostasis.
