Electromagnetic Brain Pulse
What is Electromagnetic Brain Pulse?
Depression, anxiety disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and SUD or Substance Use Disorder affect the brain significantly. Individuals who suffer from such conditions act differently; their memory is affected, and some even develop dysfunction. These are precisely what EMBP or electromagnetic brain pulse neurostimulation is made for.
Electromagnetic brain pulse is an advanced technology developed and patented by NoetherTech. Dr. Yi Jin, who discovered brain-wave-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment, released an advanced EMBP protocol in 2020, together with his First Principles Research Group.
EMBP’s goal is to identify and record an individual’s brain activity and condition using EEG or electroencephalogram. It then improves or corrects the brain condition through personalized pulse-matching, electromagnetic stimulation known as TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
Electromagnetic brain pulsing technology is based on previous research involving energy metabolism, electrical oscillation, mental disorders, cognitive function, and the brain’s physiological nature.
EMBP is an effective and safe treatment for depression, ADHD, anxiety, SUD, and other mental disorders.
What Are EEG and TMS?
EEG and TMS are medical devices used in electromagnetic brain pulse treatments. EEG stands for electroencephalography and is the technique that helps collect electrical activities from the brain. It measures voltage fluctuations produced by electrical activities that take place between the brain and neurons.
A typical EEG procedure uses a signal amplifier and a computer for the recording and storing of information. With the help of auditory tones, light flashes, and other sensory, auditory processes, the patient is relaxed and at rest while different electrodes are positioned on his scalp. Some cases will require patients to perform specific actions.
Some specialists integrate PET, MRI scans, and other similar imaging technologies in recording brain activity. EEG data is analyzed in real-time through the computer monitor.
TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is used to stimulate the brain’s nerve cells with the aid of magnetic energy pulses. It is a non-invasive, no-pain treatment that focuses on the parts of the brain controlling an individual’s moods. It is primarily used to help people suffering from depression, PTSD, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, nicotine addiction, and those who are recovering from a stroke.
There are two types of TMS treatments: rTMS and dTMS.
rTMS or Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation uses an electromagnetic coil that delivers short but intense electromagnetic pulses repetitively. The coil is placed on the left side of the patient’s scalp. It has several side effects, including tingles in the face, jaw, or scalp, and in a few cases, seizures.
EMBP and rTMS both use Class II TMS medical devices but differ significantly. While rTMS stimulates and collects data from only the left side of the brain, EMBP uses data that comes from each patient through their EEG. As such, it is more personalized or customized.
dTMS or Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is used to stimulate the deeper and larger areas of the brain. It uses H coils in reaching these different areas. The patient puts on a cushioned helmet that produces magnetic fields. Unlike rTMS, it does not cause side effects such as memory loss or seizures.
What Happens During an EMBP Procedure?
The EMBP process is divided into three steps:
1. The patient’s EEG is recorded while he is at rest.
2. The EEG data is analyzed using Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology.
3. A customized electronic magnetic pulse sequence is generated.
However, a more detailed process has five phases: consultation, EMBP trial, primary treatment, secondary treatment, and maintenance.
Patients need to consult with their EMBP specialist or physician to diagnose and determine treatment options.
The patient will undergo a trial phase that includes EMBP treatments spread over four (consecutive) days, EEG, and clinical evaluation.
Once the trial phase is completed, primary treatment starts, and this can last for more or less one month. The treatments are administered daily in addition to weekly EEG sessions. Clinical evaluations follow after each session.
If the specialist or physician determines that additional EEGs and EMBP treatments are necessary, a secondary treatment phase is scheduled.
Maintenance is necessary to ensure the treatment’s efficiency and efficacy. The patient has to continue visiting the physician for EMBP treatment, although this won’t be as frequent as the previous sessions.
EMBP treatment results vary from one patient to another; one patient’s experience is never the same as the others’. For some, the results show up right after the primary treatment, while other patients’ calming effect can take longer to show. There may even be patients who won’t respond to the treatments at all (depending on factors such as psychosocial interferences and chronic illnesses).
EMBP’s main goal is to restore the normal brain state of the patient. It is not intended to explain clinical symptoms and their causes.
After successful EMBP treatments, patients can enjoy the following benefits
Electromagnetic Brain Pulse treatments also help patients’ visual analog scale (VAS) scores improve. VAS scores rate the intensity of chronic or acute pain a patient feels.
EMBP is generally used to treat neuropsychiatric disorders. Its most significant advantages are its non-invasive characteristics and the personalized, customized treatment it delivers. It is also neuromodulation technology, which directly targets the nerves, addresses chronic pain and facilitates brain stimulation. By monitoring, recording, and analyzing brain health and activity, EMBP helps optimize and bring back brain functionality.
