Tissue Responds to Absence of Ambient High EMF Implications for chronic pain treatment and recovery
Written by Jack Taunton, MSc, MD
Electro magnetic fields (EMF) are well identified and the subject of much discussion among such organizations as the World Health Organization (WHO), BC Hydro, California Hydro, Health Canada and the Tsawwassen power lines group, also in British Columbia. These organizations primarily discuss health problems caused by the presence of EMF, in association with cellphones, microwave ovens and power lines. A somewhat different perspective is to examine what happens in the absence of ambient EMF. Clinical research, including research involving fibromyalgia patients, has been published showing that the absence of EMF decreases chronic pain.
Early Recovery Reduces Hospital Cost and Faster Rehabilitation
Globe and Mail Wednesday, October 10, 2012: A new research study including recovery following leg amputation associated with diabetes is being presented in Vancouver at the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine October 11-13, 2012. The study conducted at Vidant Hospital, Greenville, North Carolina and published by Eastern Carolina University demonstrated faster post surgical wound healing. The study used innovative technology with Farabloc fabric and Mirror Therapy in post operation care with results including improved healing and edema reduction.
Living With the Ghost: An Update on Phantom Limb Pain.
O & P Business News
Studies suggest that up to 80% of amputees will experience phantom pain in their lifetime. With few questions answered, patients and practitioners find their own ways of handling the agonizing affliction.
Phantom Pain is No Phantom
An article in The O & P Edge, an online publication of www.oandp.com, the global resource for orthotics and prosthetics information.
Phantom pain—what does it imply? To the uninitiated patient or family member, it connotes a condition in which the pain experienced is not real. It reveals something psychologically sinister and threatening—a kind of medical delusion. It limits patient motivation and family/friend support by labeling a patient as weak, prone to imagine or exaggerate, or even as a hypochondriac. At the least, the term diminishes the legitimacy of suffering—a bad modality to connect to any form of medical intervention or physical rehabilitation.
Pain Killers, “The Inventor”
Article by Vicki O’Brien in BC Business Magazine
Frieder Kempe grew up in a house of pain. His father lost a leg in the 1944 battle of Monte Cassino and suffered excruciating phantom limb pain. Kempe wanted to help. “Whenever the pain came, my father would predict rain. I realized that his scar had no healthy skin covering, hence no protection from electromagnetic
The answer, he decided, was to create a ‘second skin’ that would shield sensitive tissue, calm damaged nerve ends and stimulate blood circulation.

Farabloc is now the “Standard of Care” for Phantom Limb Pain
A report by Cecil Hershler, MD, PhD, FRCP(C) who states, “I first encountered Farabloc during a research study in 1990 (University of British Columbia, School of Rehabilitation). Together with Dr. Tali Conine, we examined the efficacy of using Farabloc to manage phantom limb pain in amputees. The study utilized a randomized, double-blind, crossover design to find in favor of Farabloc. The outcome was consequently published in a number of medical Journals, among them, this 1993 article in the Canadian Journal of Rehabilitation
