WHEN SOMETHING NEW APPEARS WHICH IS CONTRARY TO THE PREVAILING PARADIGM THERE WILL ALWAYS BE OPPOSITION, SOME NAY-SAYERS AND OUTRIGHT ANIMOSITY. THAT IS TO BE EXPECTED. BUT IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE TRUTH.
After 18 years in the BEMER business as a well-qualified technical person with a strongly developed scientific background I have had my share of skeptical, sometimes aggressive and sometimes simply rude and ignorant opponents to the BEMER treatment. Usually I found, the stronger the opposition, the more it was based on bias, opinion and prevailing paradigm, ie belief system, than the facts.
One can, in a rational and reasonable discussion, discuss the facts with a skeptic and possibly convert the person to gain a new insight.
An aggressive person can also be convinced of looking at the facts differently when they calmed down and let them draw their own conclusion once they have the facts. Even if the understanding and acceptance takes a while.
However, blatent hostility in a framework of ignorance is much more difficult to tackle. How do you argue with ignorance plus arrogance?
We had the case a few years ago of a vascular surgeon and a Professor of Physics who banded together to attack the BEMER System pronouncing it a fake, indeed the Prof called it a swindle and a fraud. Those are strong words and then I took the trouble to counter each of their erroneous arguments systematically, factually and invited both to discuss this matter together with me, as reasonable, scientific minded people. Unfortunately I didn’t get an answer ever, even when following it up with both of them a few months later.
I won’t loose sleep over it but we know that when there is a breakthrough of some sort, or a new critical insight, the critics are usually not far behind. Paradigm shifts are difficult to implement. This is a well-known major obstacle to progress in science which, by the way, is called the Thomas Kuhn effect.
And that stands in direct contrast to the over 1 million BEMER applications per day worldwide and with a more than 90% success rate in the eyes of the users. “Success” here means the user is better off in terms of their health, their medical condition, their performance, their quality of life.
Come on Skeptics, “Look at the facts”.

( The above comments are not to be construed as a diagnosis and should be discussed with a medical practitioner who understands the significance of an improved micro-circulation. The BEMER System is registered as a Class 2a medical device internationally. Although it is not a “Wonder Weapon” in the defeat of disease, it is surprisingly effective when it comes to the improvement of the blood micro-circulation which is one of the KEY Physiological Parameters for ensuring good health)
