Hemochromatosis and the use of Beemer for blood flow

Posted by martymac @martymac, Jun 23 9:31am

Is the purchase of a Beemer for magnetic blood flow any benefit? Is it an expensive gimmick at $6000?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Blood Cancers & Disorders group.

Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder where too much iron builds up in the body. Over time it can cause serious damage to organs. A phlebotomy procedure is done to remove blood from the body, reducing the iron load. If that can’t be done, then a process called cleation is used to remove excess iron.

The Bemer magnetic flow mat/system is used to increase blood flow in the body. That won’t change the genetics of the blood or reduce the ferritin level. So for this application, in my opinion, I’d say it would do nothing for the hemochromatosis.

Have you been diagnosed with hemochromatosis? Are you undergoing any treatments at this time?

Yes, having phlebotomies. Wife thinks the Beemer might help with energy levels. Skeptical that it’s a gimmick.

I have no experience with using a Bemer product or any of the other magnetic systems that claim to increase blood flow and energy levels. I’ve seen the ads and some athletes swear by them. I’d suggest more research and I think some alternative medicine practitioners use this, such as a chiropractor. You might be able to experience this in person before shelling out 6 grand on something that might not work.
Your original question was connected with hemochromatosis so that’s the route I took. I don’t believe it do anything for that.
But boosting your energy? Not sure.
What do your blood numbers say? What’s your hemoglobin and oxygen level readings in your blood?
Have you asked your doctor about this trying the magnetic blood flow stimulator?

Hello
Apologies I’ve been absent for so long
I feel bad as I’ve received such support from you all
6months now since,Michael died
House so terribly quiet ,and he’s missed so much
But I’ve been to Spain twice to visit my daughter and granddaughters
I went for her first holy communion
The principal asked me if I’d like to return for grandparents day
And I did
It was wonderful to be needed,
the little girls joined me for tea afterwards..☕️🧁
So happy to be there with them.
I still make my own wreaths and do my 5k to the grave
Trying to make the most of each day,so very sad
Bye for now💖

Oh, Miss Heart, I’m so happy to see you this morning. You’ve been on my mind and I wanted to write to you…this week got away from me.
Having visits with your granddaughters has to be what turns your days around. I bet they’re just a joy to hug! It’s really great you’re getting to travel to be with them. Sometimes a break in routine really helps to recenter yourself. I know Michael would want you to enjoy life and live it to the fullest.
It is wonderful to be needed! It has so many positive rewards. One of my fellow mentors posted a really good article about the benefits of volunteering. I’m going to give you the link to that. You’ll see it sparked quite a good discussion afterwards. Take a peek! https://connect.mayoclinic.org/comment/611334/
Have you thought about volunteering at a local school or church group?
