Will I live doctor? Yes, but…

Taking chronic medication for the rest of your life is not normal.

It’s merely the best solution that modern medicine can offer you to ‘get by.’

You always have the freedom to educate yourself and learn about proven healthcare solutions. But you can only make a decision if there is documented evidence to support it.

With the growing prevalence of chronic diseases of lifestyle it is very clear that modern medicine is not providing reliable (or adequate) solutions for our 21st century health challenges. Hypertension cases are increasing daily – the same goes for hyperlipidaemia, diabetes mellitus type 2, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, arthritis, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, the list goes on.

Drugs mostly treat the symptoms of your condition so that you can manage the discomfort and dangers of your health status. Despite daily medication the underlying physiological problems still lurk inside your body and they are probably still progressing.

Responsible healthcare practitioners will advise you to exercise regularly and eat better foods. Sure, exercise has its benefits but what is a better diet? With the current controversy around the ‘normal’ (low-fat) diet (which has contributed to the global prevalence of chronic diseases of lifestyle) and Banting (low-carb high-fat diet), who knows what one should actually eat?

Also, not everyone wants to go to the gym and exercise. Yes, the medical schemes will do anything to get you into the gym or running at least 5kms every day. Some will even give you a wearable monitoring device to record your every move and then they might take it away from you if you don’t move enough. So, where does this leave you?

There is a practical solution for everyone: just press a button.


A BEMER® button.

BEMER® Physical Vascular Therapy has been scientifically proven to optimise vasomotion which is responsible for ensuring the efficient delivery of blood through the capillaries. Your capillaries are the essential link between your blood and every single living cell in your body. Every cell requires a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients to optimally perform its special metabolic functions.

The reason we acquire a chronic disease of lifestyle is because poor lifestyle habits interfere with important biochemical pathways, which can then reduce the normal vasomotion rate. This then leads to impaired microcirculation (the vast network of capillaries comprising 74% of all blood vessels) function, which starves the cells of oxygen and nutrients.

When your cells are starved of oxygen and nutrients over a sustained period you will certainly experience some type of ailment or medical complaint, which may vary in severity from person to person. Chronic diseases of lifestyle are NOT NORMAL, even if you are told that they are normal.

Your quality of life is more precious than you could ever imagine.

Everyone wants to be healthy until they die naturally. Death is not a pleasant thought but suffering for years until one dies is an even more unpleasant thought. No one wants to lose their faculties and suffer in their golden years.

Simply rent or buy a BEMER® system from us today and start feeling the benefits. Even if you are an ultra-fit sports person you will still experience the proven influences of BEMER® Physical Vascular Therapy. Thousands of professional and amateur sports teams and individuals use BEMER® for rapid recovery and peak performance.


BEMER® Physical Vascular Therapy is your lifetime investment.

If you drive a premium vehicle every day then you acknowledge that exclusive value comes at an exclusive price. But just how much are you investing in your health? Do you value your driving comfort more than the quality of your life? Your automobile provides your body with no health benefit whatsoever yet it absorbs a substantial portion of your capital to afford you a sense of comfort, pleasure and status.

Surely your body should be in better shape than your wealth portfolio or your vehicle? Because without optimum health, your life experience will be limited by your physical and mental capacities.

When you invest in a new BEMER® System you immediately take control of your health and your future: you experience appreciative health benefits every time you use it.

You should also consider buying a BEMER® System for your staff. Let your employees experience measured health benefits with a daily 8-minute BEMER® treatment during work hours. Give your business the BEMER® advantage by reducing absenteeism and increasing productivity, simply, reliably and safely.

Hypertension is dangerous. So fix it!

Did you know that hypertension is the most prevalent chronic condition in SA?

It also leads to other serious life-limiting health conditions.

“Hypertension (HYP) was the fastest increasing cardiovascular condition, increasing by 33% between 2008 and 2013 (from 65.5 to 87.2 per 1 000). In 2013, more female than male beneficiaries received treatment for hypertension (90.9 per 1 000 vs. 83.3 per 1 000 respectively).”  – Council for Medical Schemes (Prevalence of chronic diseases in the population covered by medical schemes in South Africa – January 2015).

Research shows that Hypertension is caused by lifestyle risk factors: poor diet, lack of exercise and smoking. Hypertension is the condition where blood is not being adequately transported through the tiniest blood vessels (capillaries).

Significant volumes of blood collect in arterioles and venules, starving organs of vital oxygen and nutrients and placing a dangerous demand on the heart muscles. It is an indication that the blood-pumping mechanism, called vasomotion, is no longer functioning optimally.

When this is sustained over a long period we find the onset of other chronic diseases of lifestyle: cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, kidney failure, including acute emergencies like stroke and heart failure.


BEMER® Physical Vascular Therapy increases vasomotion rates within eight minutes.*

*The Institute for Microcirculation, Berlin, has documented  scientific evidence of BEMER®’s influence on this essential blood circulation function. No other therapy or drug can achieve this without any negative side effects in eight minutes.

BEMER® is comfortably integrated into your bed so that you cannot avoid applying the completely safe therapy before and after sleep. There are no excuses! What’s more is that the two BEMER® models have a special sleep function, giving your body enhanced regenerative capacity while you’re dreaming.

When Pills & Age Collide.

You may be super fit, totally unfit, immobile or moderately healthy. You may even have a chronic or infectious disease.

But how do you effectively and safely enhance your quality of life and performance, regardless of your health status?

Chronic diseases.

Most of our clients have suffered from one or more chronic diseases of lifestyle. It’s an international trend to see more and more people of a younger age present symptoms of chronic diseases. These are no longer considered to be age-related diseases but rather diseases that are related to sustained unfavourable lifestyle habits and activities: poor diet, lack of movement, social and work stress and substance abuse (including alcohol and smoking).

If you have experienced some type of pro-longed discomfort or physiological dysfunction then you will probably have received a chronic medicine prescription from your healthcare practitioner. You will almost certainly be taking this medication for the rest of your life.

Sorry, but let’s face the facts.

Generally, the underlying cause of a chronic disease cannot been remedied by medication. It is the symptoms of the disease that are managed by drugs. This means that despite taking medication every day for the rest of your life, your diagnosed condition and related complications will not go away. More often than not, your health will still deteriorate over time, unless you take drastic action.

Of course, you can get well again. You can change your lifestyle and become more health conscious, start exercising and relax more often. But how many of us will actually do this?

Some wonderful news.

Science advances at a such rate that new technologies and therapies are presented to us daily as alternatives to drugs. The frustrating thing about a lot of them is that they don’t substantiate their medical claims with scientific facts or evidence.

This is why individuals, families, business executives and sports people rely on BEMER® every single day.

They rely on 17 years of international research.


The efficacy of BEMER® has been scientifically proven to effectively enhance the body’s intricate and delicate self-regulatory mechanisms, predominantly observed in the microcirculation.

The microcirculation is where the exchange of oxygen, nutrients and metabolic waste takes place, between your blood and all the cells of your body. Where you find impaired microcirculation function you will certainly find the onset or prevalence of disease.

Before you continue your day obsessing that your health is only going to get worse over time, you should rather spend that energy learning about BEMER®.

It is fascinating. And we will only give you the scientific facts.

BEMER® is available in 40 countries and more than 6’500 families and healthcare practitioners in South Africa apply it daily. It carries the CE & ISO certifications for medical devices verifying quality, safety and medical efficacy. It is also registered with the SA Department of Health and is licensed for sale (549/7826). LEARN MORE.

Make the best health decision you’ve ever made because being healthy is not a luxury.

It’s an absolute necessity.

You can safely and effectively use BEMER® every day to:
  • optimise and maintain excellent heath;
  • find measured lasting relief or possibly experience full recovery from a chronic disease;
  • rapidly recover from surgery, trauma, bone fractures, burns, non-healing wounds;
  • enhance your performance for sport and work.

BEMER® is not a substitute for medicine and you are urged to continue with your prescription until such time as your registered healthcare practitioner advises you otherwise.

We will include a pulse oximeter and a blood pressure monitor when you purchase a new BEMER® Classic System or BEMER® Professional System through Get Well Now.

The three BEMER® Systems are subject to the EUR/ZAR exchange rate and could change without notice. The prices include VAT, couriered delivery and a 3-year factory warranty.
