In a quest to develop safe and Non-Invasive treatment for cancer and arthritis, continuous research culminated into establishment of SBF Healthcare Centre.
Pioneered by Wg Cdr (Dr) VG Vasishta (Retd) former Professor and Head of Department of Radio diagnosis & Imaging at Institute of Aerospace Medicine (Indian Air Force) Bangalore, India, Sequentially Programmed Magnetic Field Therapy developed into one of the prime and foremost non-invasive treatments for Arthritis and Cancer.
Under the valuable guidance of Wg Cdr (Dr) VG Vasishta (Retd) and continued unrelenting dedication of SBF staff, SBF has been able to scale new heights in delivering cutting edge technology treatment for arthritis and cancer.
SPMF® Therapy is pioneered by Wg Cdr (Dr) VG Vasishta (Retd) former Professor and Head of Department of Radio diagnosis & Imaging of Institute of Aerospace Medicine (Indian Air Force) Bangalore India. It is a novel, unique, non-invasive method of treatment for Arthritis and cancer.
How Does It Work?
Exposure to SPMF® Therapy sensitizes and re-creates the missing physiological piezo-electric stimulus necessary for cartilage regeneration.
OA is caused by progressive degeneration of articular cartilage. Articular cartilage is an avascular a neural structure adherent to the articular ends of bone. The continual internal physiological remodelling of cartilage happens due to piezo-electric stimulus i.e. during compression of the cartilage there is generation of weak electro-magnetic fields and thus help in regenerating the cartilage.
As such the articular cartilage has very limited regenerative capacity due to limited anabolic capacity and absence of piezo-electric stimulus in regeneration, does not allow healing. SPMF® Therapy restores the missing physiological stimulus thus leading to cartilage regeneration.
The cell membrane potential of cancer cells are about -15mV to -30mV. Exposure of cancer cells to SPMF® Therapy will normalize this potential, thereby halting the process of cell proliferation. A cascade of effects follows normalization of cell membrane potential, i.e. increased influx of Calcium, Potassium ions and Magnesium and efflux of Na & H2O out of cells, and reduction in intracellular acidity.
SPMF® Therapy increases the impedance of mitochondrial membrane potential and restores energy production. At the same time, it reduces the vascularity of the tumour tissue, as exposure to these magnetic fields causes swelling of endothelial cell lining of blood vessels, occluding the lumen, cutting down O2 and nutrient supply to the tumour tissue.
Studies have demonstrated that electromagnetic fields cause anti-tumour activity and significant increase in apoptosis in tumours of treated animals together with reduction in immuno-reactive p53 expression. SPMF® Therapy exposure to cancer cells is also believed to restore p53 function.
The normal cells are not influenced by the SPMF exposure as the Magnetic Field Generators (MFGs) are aimed at the core of the tumour. Furthermore, the signals are modulated depending on the proton density of the tumor tissue.
Safety of SPMF® Therapy
SPMF® Therapy a technology that delivers highly complex Sequentially Programmed Magnetic Fields, which can be precisely aligned onto the target tissues. These are non-ionizing, non-thermal and have no known side effects thereby enabling it to be a very safe treatment option.
Dose calculation is done on proton density of target tissue; therefore, it does not cause any damage to surrounding tissue.
The international Commission for Non-ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) has defined emission level that is considered safe for human use. The magnetic field emissions from SPMF exposure are well below the level specified by ICNIRP.
Benefits of SPMF® Therapy
