The number of prescriptions for powerful pain killers, such as codeine and tramadol, have risen from 12m to 24m in the past 10 decade. If this wasn’t scary enough, one of the highest increases in prescriptions during this time has been for Oxycodone, an opioid pain killer 1.5 times more potent than morphine. We are now resorting to ever stronger and more aggressive ways to try to combat pain, which unsurprisingly comes at a great cost to our well-being!

One of the main concerns of such powerful medication is the very real risk of becoming addicted, which can potentially pave the way for hardcore drugs. Alarming research has highlighted that one in three 18-24 year old now take painkillers every single day, often at the slightest sign of pain. This simply has to change and awareness of non-pharmacological interventions available to reduce our reliance on opioid medication needs to drastically improve.

It is, therefore, hardly surprising that more and more people are looking for much safer, longer term alternatives to provide relief from pain. One of these alternatives is the iMRS 2000 system, which utilises low frequency and intensity PEMF therapy and is designed for everyday use. To help demonstrate the great potential of this natural approach to pain relief, we will take a look at Natasza’s story.

Natasza’s story:

Natasza Telfer“In 2006 I was blown up whilst serving with the Army in Iraq. My legs and hips were severely injured. Despite years stuck in a wheelchair I can walk with crutches now but take an absolutely ridiculous amount of pain medication, with the main one being 80 times more potent than morphine going continually into my body, and a mass of pills at stupid strengths. Even still, I live every day in excruciating pain and everything I do makes it worse. I have tried everything for just a few seconds of relief but have had no luck. I also weight lift but between that and my crutches, my back and hands can really suffer as they can’t rest. I would do anything for just a little relief.

I am part of a dragon boat racing team which is made up of all injured serving or ex servicemen and women. We race against the able bodied teams in the national league and are aiming for the Invictus Games next year as well as international competition. It is a very very physically demanding sport that uses your whole body when paddling, unlike how you would row in a much more static position. The problem for us as a team is recovery. It takes a lot longer for us to recover and we can really really suffer after training and racing (although that would never stop us). Most of us suffer from PTSD and the mental effects of living with chronic pain, a large number of us also have physical injuries of varying extents and types.

I started using the EMPpad iMRS in September 2016, first thing in the morning and again before bed at night. Within the first few weeks I noticed my pain levels starting to reduce and become easier to manage. As a result of this I was even able to go horse riding for the first time since my injury! In addition to this I also noticed improvement in my sleep, which is something that has been disrupted for a long time.

Last month the EMPpad helped me to achieve something I have wanted to do for 9 years and that is march with my regiment in the Cenotaph parade on Remembrance Sunday. This year I did it, which included 3 hours standing on parade before even starting the 2-3km marching where I had to keep in time, step and stride with everyone else. I have attached a photo of me after the parade – wobbly but incredibly happy.

I love it, and once again will take the opportunity to thank you for the EMPpad trial”.

The iMRS system uses very low intensity and frequency pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology, which targets the cells within the body and can help to improve the way they function. PEMF therapy has been repeatedly shown to stimulate the production of the body’s own painkiller, known as endorphins. It is remarkably effective, and as strong as 10mg of Morphine!

The iMRS system does more than just help relieve pain. It can also address the cause of pain by promoting increased tissue repair, reducing inflammation and relaxing associated muscular tension. The pain relieving effects of the iMRS are body wide, and reproducible on a daily basis.

Daily use of the iMRS system can help to stimulate the body’s own pain relieving ability. Completely safe to use, it can also work to complement other natural approaches to pain relief such as exercise, appropriate supplementation, and manual therapy. For further details of the natural pain relieving potential of the iMRS 2000 and to discover how you can take an EMPpad trial of this remarkable system visit www.emppad.com.
