Optimizing Blood Flow with PEMF

The fine capillaries where important exchanges take places in the body
Normal Blood Flow
Blood flows from the heart and into a miniature system of vessels called capillaries, which exchange water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and many other nutrients and waste chemical substances between the blood and the surrounding tissues. Blood is manufactured in the marrow of the bones and stays on active duty for approximately 100-120 days before it is recycled. Blood circulates through the body every 20 seconds.
Rouleaux Reduced Efficiency
According to a study published by Intech, a typical human blood cell has a diameter of 5-10 μm and a surface area of approximately 135 μm2. Therefore, the maximum efficiency of the blood cell is reached when the surface area of the cell is free to perform its functions.
Scientists examining blood cells during live cell analysis have observed a phenomenon called the Rouleaux effect. Blood cells can stick together like stacked coins forming a Rouleaux (clumping of cells). If two cells stack, the combined surface area is reduced from 270 μm2 (2 x 135 μm2) to 193 μm2 or 71%. Their efficiency is reduced further as the number of cells stacks up. For example, a stack of eight or more cells reduces their total cellular efficiency by 50%.
Cell ineffectiveness due to the Rouleaux Efficiency
This fact is alarming enough, but another factor must be taken into account. Capillaries are so tiny (5-10 μm) that blood cells can only pass through them in a single file. The Rouleaux Effect is about the stacking cells and the formation of Rouleaux stacks into combined branches. Cells that are stacked in this way cannot pass through the capillaries, as capillaries can only accept free-flowing singular and independent red blood cells.
Blood that cannot pass through the capillaries cannot absorb or dispel toxins or carbon dioxide, neither can it absorb and dispel nutrients or oxygen. Blood affected by the Rouleaux effect recirculates without performing the task it is sent to undertake. If the blood cells are subjected to the Rouleaux effect, disease results because blood flow throughout the body is restricted, and the oxygen level in the blood is drastically reduced. Bacteria are anaerobic, meaning they thrive without oxygen so disease will thrive in blood deprived of oxygen. Parasites and viruses also thrive in anaerobic acidic environments.
This problem affects all the major systems in the body.
PEMF and the Rouleaux Effect
Blood passes on nutrients and oxygen while absorbing toxins or enzymes from all the major organs by the use of capillaries. Blood cells which power down lose their charge and stick to one another, causing the Rouleaux effect. If the Rouleaux effect is present in the blood, these organs cannot be properly serviced by the blood.
PEMF positively charges blood cells so that they repel one another (like-magnetic charges repel), making it impossible for them to stick together, maximizing the ability of the blood cells to perform their tasks in the capillaries of all the major organs. The work of the lungs, liver, intestines and kidneys is optimized when proper and complete blood flow occurs. When the blood is oxygenated, so are the organs and tissues, reducing disease, which can produce imbalances, sickness and eventually cancers.

Fine capillaries exchange carbon dioxide and oxygen in the lungs.
Fine capillaries clear toxins from the blood in the liver.
Fine capillaries absorbe nutrients and minerals the small intestines
Fine capillaries remove excess glucose and waste products in the blood.
Capillary blood transfer
The lungs absorb oxygen through the capillaries located in small air sacks called alveoli through a process called diffusion. Oxygen is absorbed, while carbon dioxide is expelled. Oxygen is then carried to all the major organs for use in energy production (ATP). The byproduct of energy production is carbon dioxide, which is brought back to the lungs and exchanged for oxygen.
The liver removes toxins from the blood and injects biochemicals necessary for digestion. The liver stores glycogen, which is broken down into glucose and dispersed into the blood when the blood sugar levels are too low. The liver also decomposes tired blood cells and produces hormones injected into the blood. This, and much more, happens through the capillaries, which pass through the liver. As a result, toxins are removed, while sugars, proteins and hormones are added back into the blood.
The small intestine absorbs nutrients and minerals found in food. The small intestine absorbs proteins, fats (lipids) and carbohydrates. The intestine is lined with microscopic brushes called villi and micro-villi, which contain networks of capillaries. The villi absorb the nutrients into the capillaries, where they are transported by the blood vessels and distributed throughout the body. Villi are like the alveoli of the lungs, just performing a different function.
The kidneys remove excess organic molecules, such as glucose and the waste products of metabolism from the blood. The kidneys regulate the acid-base balance and the blood pressure (through salt-water balance). They remove all soluble wastes and send them to the urinary bladder. Again, this filtering process includes blood travelling through the capillaries.
