William Work, M.D., of California, and his dedicated staff incorporated ONDAMED® into their practice at the end of 2009. Since then, they have continued to implement this type of treatment with much success. They documented one such case involving a patient with Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune disorder affecting muscle strength and movement. They reveal the results of their study below.
June is Myasthenia Awareness Month, as designated by the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA.) This month marks a pivotal time for patients, loved ones, doctors and anyone who wishes to increase understanding and general awareness to help eliminate this disease. ONDAMED is doing its part by partnering with doctors, providing a highly effective form of treatment, with no harmful side effects.
Patients are increasingly turning to complimentary forms of therapy and medicine in order to achieve optimal results. One such therapy is ONDAMED, which offers a unique biofeedback methodology, communicating with the biological system and identifying any physiological weakness, from inflammation to infection to even detecting past emotional trauma at the cellular level.
Many patients think blood tests are all they need in order to detect disease, but the problem is that while most of these tests will reveal inflammation, they do not provide information as to where the inflammation is coming from. This makes treatment difficult, as most anti-inflammatory drugs treat the entire system, not one specific area. ONDAMED sets itself apart from both conventional treatments and even other biofeedback solutions by combining biofeedback with specific field stimulation, meaning the practitioner identifies specific areas of stress through the patient’s unique biofeedback loop.
It is known that inflammation is primarily caused by stress, a determining factor in many diseases. By identifying these hidden areas of stress in the body, ONDAMED is then able to stimulate the exact location rather than the entire body, making it much more effective than standard or other complimentary treatments. ONDAMED offers a unique solution by stimulating the stressed area with focused pulsed electro-magnetic fields which stimulate local tissue and the patient’s nervous system. Some of the benefits include reducing localized stress, improving metabolism and lymphatic flow, all of which result in reduced pain, swelling and inflammation, and increased stress tolerance.
Chronic conditions, when stimulated with ONDAMED, transform into a sub-acute level. Once this occurs, the immune system recognizes the sub-acute inflammation and responds accordingly. The actual source of the inflammation is treated, not just the symptoms.
Once such disease is Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune disease causing several chronic symptoms affecting one’s quality of life. It causes the muscles in your body to fatigue and become weak easily. Typically, when one is at rest, the symptoms disappear, or lessen, but when one resumes action, the symptoms return.
Most commonly affecting the muscles responsible for your eyes and eyelid movements, typically the first symptoms one will notice are drooping of the eyelids, blurred or double vision.
In a case study performed by William Work, M.D., and his staff, they discovered that by using the ONDAMED Biofeedback System, a patient made a full recovery from symptoms. The patient initially came to his office complaining of severe muscle weakness throughout her entire body, marked facial muscle deterioration on the right side, including a drooping eyelid, loss of facial expression on right side, extreme fatigue, trouble sleeping, incontinence, and equilibrium/balance issues. The patient was extremely fatigued during the daytime and would be unable to get her rest at night, and was also falling down frequently. Her symptoms were affecting her daily life and her quality of life.
By her fifth therapy session, she was sleeping more soundly. By her second month of intervention, or eighth session, she had achieved six full hours of undisturbed sleep and was no longer napping during the daytime. Around this time, her energy levels improved, as did her outlook on life. She was transforming into a happier person.
After 17 full sessions with ONDAMED, she achieved 100% mobility in her face and now walks around symptom free and has a much improved quality of life. After 3 years, the patient is still reporting same results with monthly maintenance sessions.
While traditional medicine offers much in the clinical sense, it lacks the valuable healing effects of the psyche. Biofeedback combined with focused field stimulation provides the answer for many patients suffering from chronic symptoms of pain, inflammation and a generalized decreased quality of life. The patient’s immune system is altered and strengthened, lymphatic flow is improved and even body tissues are positively affected, including soft tissue, cartilage and bone.
ONDAMED may be the answer for patients suffering from Myasthenia Gravis, giving them their life back, one therapy at a time.
