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.

Watch these BEMER® testimonials on YouTube or take some time to read the evidence.

The Value of Your Health

Of all the assets you possess, do you consider your health to be the most valuable?

And, if you could sell your health then do you think someone else would want to buy it?

Maintaining the integrity of one’s financial portfolio requires special attention, this we know. But how much of your attention is being given to the state of your health – equally, how much investment is required to improve or maintain it?

If you understand that the state of your health directly influences your Quality of Life and Work then you will do everything to maintain and enhance your mental & physical performance.

It is your capacity to create and share new life experiences (and remember the previous ones) with the special people in your life that really matters.

If you want to add considerable value to your life and those closest to you then making informed decisions about your health (and theirs) is absolutely paramount.

We all want to live a longer, fuller life – learn how BEMER is already doing this for almost 7’000 South African families every day.

Reclaim your well-being with BEMER.

BEMER is a ‘no nonsense’ Physical Vascular Therapy that effectively optimises several crucial physiological processes in your body in under eight minutes.

It is the only Physical Vascular Therapy currently available that has been scientifically proven to opitimise microcirculation parameters in under eight minutes, with no known side effects.

So what does this mean?

This means that when you are exposed to BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy the smallest blood vessels in your body (micro-vessels or capillaries) are more efficient at carrying oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the cells that comprise all the organs of your body.

When the cells of your body do not receive and adequate and consistent supply of oxygen and nutrients then they become acidic and begin to dysfunction. After a sustained period of not receiving adequate oxygen and nutrients one starts to experience symptoms of a lifestyle/chronic disease that seems impossible to shake.

So how can BEMER change your life?

It can change your life by influencing how your blood flows through your body. Every living cell in your body needs the right ingredients to perform very specific functions so that your body can efficiently heal itself.

Your body knows exactly how to function and heal itself but it needs an efficient microcirculation system to deliver blood to all the cells of the body. The body’s metabolic functions are totally reliant on the adequate supply of oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to all cells of the body.

Why don’t doctors know about BEMER?

Many doctors do know about BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy and they use it to effectively treat their patients in their consulting rooms. Many of their patients are so impressed by the life-changing results that they buy their own systems to use daily in their own homes.

There are also some doctors that are not familiar with BEMER technology and so they unfairly dismiss BEMER’s health benefits. Always ask for proof when trying something new. BEMER has been rigorously evaluated and we will gladly produce the scientific reports that support BEMER’s medical claims.

We’ll also educate your doctor about BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy should you wish us to do this on your behalf.

When your body is battling to cope with life’s demands and you begin to experience the symptoms of what could become a chronic disease then you should give BEMER a chance. The benefits are unavoidable!

The Ultimate Anniversary Gift

No anniversary gift could be better than giving each other a better quality of life.

And better quality of life is solely dependent on good health.

If your anniversary with your partner is imminent then you are probably considering the most special gift to fit the budget.

Nothing is more important and more satisfying than feeling healthy; having the mental and physical capacity to make new memories by enjoying fun times with family and friends, or just as a couple, is invaluable.

Consider investing in a reliable therapy that will give you proven health benefits every single day for the rest of your life in the comfort of your home.

Consider BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy. It has been scientifically proven to safely, reliably and measurably optimise blood circulation, immune system function and bone density.

You can use BEMER every day to give your body what it needs to experience genuine relief and/or recovery from chronic diseases. You will also recover quicker after surgery and BEMER will enhance physical and mental performance, regardless of your health status.

BEMER has been subjected to international independent research and clinical evaluations since 1998. It is the world’s most advanced Physical Vascular Therapy currently available.

What is your health worth to you and your partner?

When our health deteriorates so does our life experience. As a species on planet Earth we are consuming more pharmaceuticals every year. The increasing number of people with chronic diseases escalates  in every country, regardless of an individual’s financial status.

It is up to you and your partner to make an informed decision about your health by learning how your body works and what it needs to work efficiently – without any side effects! This 5 minute video will explain how BEMER influences some of the most important physiological mechanisms in your body so that it can heal itself.

GET WELL NOW! It’s easier than you think

So many people feel frustrated with their health status but simply don’t know what to do to get well again.

Besides, how do you know which habits are the healthiest ones to adopt? There are so many trends out there that change like the weather and it’s difficult to decipher which ones you can trust.

It can also be very disappointing to commit to new habits after New Year only to see them fall away before the end of January. New habits are never easy to start and sometimes its just seems like too much hard work.

The most important thing to understand is that your body always wants to perform perfectly. If you give your body the right ingredients (nutrients and oxygen), in the right environment, then it will do this with ease.

Remember that your body is always doing its best to never let you down!

You know that your body comprises billions of cells that all perform specific functions. For instance, your liver has different types of cells compared with the cells of your brain and those too are different from muscle cells. There are several identical attributes however that all the living cells of the body share:

  • They all require an adequate oxygen supply to function correctly.
  • They all require nutrients to metabolise and perform their very specific functions.
  • They all need to discharge metabolic waste products otherwise they may become acidic and begin to dysfunction.
  • They all need an efficient and consistent delivery system to ensure that they receive oxygen & nutrients and that the waste products are carried away. This delivery system is the blood circulation network and it is in the microcirculation (the smallest blood vessels or otherwise named capillaries) where the exchange of oxygen, nutrients and waste products takes place.

When microcirculation no longer works efficiently or is impaired the cells of the body begin to suffer and we then start to notice symptoms of chronic diseases of lifestyle (arthritis, osteoporosis, autoimmune disorders, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cancers, etc).

There is only one technology currently available that can positively influence the functioning of your microcirculation with no known side effects and in the comfort of your home in under eight minutes. This is BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy. You need to watch this video to understand how it works…

Private individuals, doctors and other healthcare professionals use BEMER daily to optimise microcirculation so that the body is in a better state to heal itself. The body knows how to do this but adequate oxygen and nutrients are essential for a healthy metabolism and the delivery system (the microcirculation) needs to work properly to allow this to happen.

More than 6’000 South Africans use BEMER daily to regulate and optimise the physiological mechanisms that encourage a healthy microcirculation system. This allows the cells of the body to perform their special tasks of keeping you alive and well.

There is a great deal of scientific evidence proving BEMER’s process-based efficacy. More than 1’000’000 worldwide daily BEMER applications take place in 40 countries – you can rest assured that you too will experience the amazing health benefits from daily BEMER application. It’s pure physics and proven science.

Always ask for proof when device or pharmaceutical manufacturers make medical claims. BEMER is the only Physical Vascular Therapy of its kind that has the scientific evidence to support its claims.

BEMER is 100% safe and has no known side effects. It has been licensed for sale by the South African Department of Health (549/7826) and continues to be evaluated and researched by independent academics across the globe.

Contact us today to arrange a demonstration at your home or office so that you can take the first step towards a healthy and happy 2015.

Don’t get well soon. GET WELL NOW.

A New Healthcare Paradigm

When last did you walk through a hospital ward and cast an eye to the faces in the beds as you passed by the rooms?

Besides people that have congenital disorders; have experienced an acute trauma; or have contracted a life-threatening communicable disease, every other patient in the hospital has been admitted because they are suffering from at least one non-communicable disease (NCD), accelerating their approach to an early grave.

This observation can be very disturbing and every time I experience it I remind myself that there is something very wrong with the way we are taught to care for ourselves from a very young age.

We are taught mathematics, chemistry, physics, languages, how to design, build, make, you name it, but the fundamental of learning how to take care of our bodies and growing one’s own food is, for the most part, omitted from mainstream elementary education.

What puzzles me is that we are perpetually at work in the world’s most advanced labs trying find medicines to remedy our self-inflicted health problems. Billions of dollars are spent annually on drug discovery yet the prevalence of non-communicable diseases is on the rise in every country. Imagine if all that money and human capital was harnessed to teach people how to grow their own life-giving food and take care of their own bodies? The global healthcare picture would be vastly different to the one we are seeing right now.

NCDs are avoidable. The sooner we accept this fact the sooner we will have the courage to take responsibility for our own health status. We have brought NCDs upon ourselves and it’s not up to the healthcare system, a medical scheme, a doctor or a pharmaceutical company to fix an NCD. It’s up to us to adopt new habits that will allow us to live longer, healthier and happier lives.

We have surrendered our bodies to the current healthcare paradigm because that is what we have been taught to do and it is clear that this way of thinking has exacerbated the global healthcare burden. We are taught to trust a healthcare paradigm that does not trust the inherent physiological mechanisms of the body to self-regulate and self-heal. We are treating the mounting global healthcare burden the same way we are treating the patient – we’re masking the symptoms without addressing the underlying causes.

Healthcare can manage chronic diseases but without addressing the underlying causes of an NCD the biochemical pathways in the body will progressively dysfunction. Add the possible side effects of medicines to the mix and one realises that it’s not going to be an easy ride to that early grave. It’s going to be an uncomfortable and unpleasant journey.

This grim picture can only change when our personal healthcare paradigm shifts and we take responsibility for our own bodies. We somehow feel disconnected from our physical being and that’s why we consult a healthcare professional when the warning light comes on, surprised by the negative change in our condition and oblivious to how we have been treating our bodies for years, sometimes decades.

Preventative Wellness should be a compulsory elementary education course – but this might only happen when the burden of NCDs is such that their management becomes totally unfeasible for governments to sustain. The good news: we are moving closer to this situation and it will be the innovators and free-thinkers that will provide the most realistic and practical solutions for societies.

In the meantime one should eat the most nutrient-rich foods one can grow or find and frequently participate in moderate exercise activities. You don’t have to become an Olympic athlete to tick the ‘exercise box.’ Simply working up a mild sweat a few times a week works wonders.

Without optimal blood circulation you cannot sustain good health no matter how perfect your diet and other lifestyle habits may be. Excellent blood circulation is the precursor to excellent health.

For the past ten years I have been actively promoting BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy. It significantly optimises blood circulation and immune system parameters (amongst other critical physiological mechanisms) within eight minutes of application, regardless of one’s condition. It is this technology that could play a significant role in shifting the global healthcare paradigm. Let’s see!

If you want to know more about BEMER and how it positively influences the health status of every single employee, reduces absenteeism and increases productivity then contact me to book a BEMER mini-workshop for you or your team.

The scientific evidence of BEMER’s efficacy is fascinating and the content of mypresentation is a refreshing break from the mainstream employee and personal wellness perspective. Give it a try. But be warned: paradigms can shift!


BEMER is registered as a Class 2A medical device and is licensed for sale by the South African Department of Health (549/7826). It is also officially represented in more than 40 countries with over 1 million applications every day. More than 6’000 individuals and healthcare professionals in South Africa own and use BEMER daily for NCDs, acute conditions, convalescence, peak-performance (sport) and preventative purposes.

Who should use BEMER?

A simple answer: EVERYONE!

BEMER is ideal for every person on Earth. No matter how ill you may be or how super-fit you’ve become, BEMER will give you daily health benefits that are physiologically activated in your body in under 8 minutes of application.

It’s like making a cellular phone call to any valid cellular number in the world knowing, with absolute confidence, that it will connect. The science and physics involved in the GSM cellular process is undisputed, repeatable and measurable. It works perfectly every time, just like BEMER.

The Swiss and Finnish Olympic teams have many BEMER systems to enhance recovery and performance. The world’s most successful male tennis player has been using BEMER for years including the famous veteran, Boris Becker. A dominant Super 15 Rugby team from South Africa has 7 BEMER systems to help players recover significantly faster from injuries.

Many European mountain biking champions use their own BEMER systems daily to compete with a legal advantage. BEMER has also previously featured as a free service to riders during the Cape Epic.

No matter who you are or what it is you do for business, leisure or sport, BEMER is your ultimate wellness companion.

And using it everyday is so easy.

Who on Earth doesn’t want to have a healthy functioning body? And is there anything more important than having good health?

Our lives and experiences are governed by the limitations dictated to us by our individual states of health. Endeavour to make the state of your health your absolute priority because you, your family, your income, your happiness, your experiences and your dreams cannot survive without it being in good order.
