“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”
~ Mother Teresa
It’s so easy in our everyday lives to become consumed by all all the things we have to do, as well as the financial pressures we must endure when money is tight. Feeling down and negative about it all, from time to time strikes all of us, but even when you feel your own stress building up inside you, did you know that perhaps the very best thing you can do is put on a happy face? Yes, even if it means you have to force a phoney smile.
“Peace begins with a smile.”
~ Mother Teresa
It has been said that a photograph or the on camera face of a wholesome female model or actress (perhaps actor), looking right into the camera induces people to buy products–so we know advertisers know the power of a smile! We all inherently know the power of a smile too! We feel good whilst smiling and we feel good when we are smiled at.
Recently however, we find that the simple, natural act of smiling actually helps our health by lowering our heart rate and relieving our stress levels.
An interesting study, took place at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, required participants to hold a variety of facial expressions while enduring stress-provoking situations. The researchers recruited 169 college-age volunteers, of whom half were men and half were women. They were provided with chopsticks and taught to hold them in their mouths while making certain facial expressions. They produced a neutral look, a smile that only involved the mouth, and a Duchenne smile, which is more of a true smile that requires activity in muscles of both the mouth and the eyes. To half of the subjects, the suggestion was made that the Duchnenne smile was to be made like a smile. The other half was simply directed on the muscular action needed.
The entire group of participants were told they would be multi-tasking while holding the chopsticks in their mouths and keeping a particular expression on their faces. The tasks they needed to perform were designed to be difficult and therefore heighten their stress levels. For instance, the volunteers were made to trace a star shape using their non-dominant hand working off a mirror reflection or plunging a hand into ice water (not something we usually would want to smile about).
The researchers monitored the heart rates of the subjects both during and after the tasks. The smilers had lower heart rates than those wearing neutral expressions. The greatest difference was found in those who executed a Duchenne smile that is most similar to a true smile. However, even the participants who formed a smile with their mouths only had lower heart rates than those keeping a neutral face, suggesting that any sort of grin–even a completely fake smile–can be beneficial.
Researchers know today that we produce greater quantities of both adrenaline and cortisol when undergoing stress. This “fight or flight” or as I add even faint reaction, increases the heart rate and affects blood flow to ensure the vital organs of the core of the body are receiving their fair share at the expense of the extremities. Therefore, having a lower heart rate means we are not feeling or reacting to the stress nearly as much.
According to the results of this study, smiling would appear to have some sort of calming effect. In fact, blood pressure rates were also noted to be lower in many of the smiling volunteers, but not all. Since the same hormones in the body that affect heart rate also increase blood pressure, it’s interesting that those results were not as consistent. The difference could possibly be due to high blood pressure being a long-term condition that develops over time and is affected by overeating and other poor health habits, whereas a quickened heart rate is generally short term. Then again, in some people the higher blood pressure could have been the result of hardened arteries, which would not have changed no matter how much one smiled.
Earlier research about smiling has produced mixed results. A 2011 study at Michigan State University in East Lansing found that people who had to be polite all day at work and produce fake smiles ended up with overall worse moods than others. Yet, when those same subjects were told to conjure their smiles based on happy thoughts, both their moods and their productivity levels increased.
Most of us have heard that when we smile we release a chemical message deep within our brain known as an Endorphin. Once released these Endorphins travel down our spine sending feel good messages throughout the rest of our body.
These Endorphins are known to be strong enough to reduce symptoms of physical, or emotional pain, as they
envelop us in a nice warm feeling of well being. They are a chemical of approximately the same strength as another pharmaceutical chemical that we all know of known as Morphine.
Endorphins have that wonderful ability to make us feel happy, and whenever we all smile, we release them. So even if you are not happy when you begin to smile, you will be afterwards, and the more often that you smile then the happier you will feel!
I think, since it costs us nothing to smile and I know I feel better when I do then why not smile as often as possible. If the first thing we would do when faced with stressful people or situations was smile we might unnerve them to such a degree that we neutralize the stressful event right in its tracks. This might even turn into a giggle or full on laugh fest.
It’s nice to see that this has been the subject of scientific scrutiny but, If you think about it, there really is no downside to smiling. It’s time to be proud of our laugh lines which I think are far better than frown lines. And besides stress is very dangerous for all of us: to our mental status, physical health, and overall well-being, it even upsets our companion animals, so for their sake, smile!
A smile may not be a ‘cure all’ but it certainly seems to help us get through all that is going on in the world, or even some of the problems in our own life. It would truly be great if we could truly lower or normalize our heart rate and stress level even if just by a tiny bit; it’s certainly a start.
The act of smiling at or with the one you love can keep you both in the most healthful stage of all known as the honeymoon stage of a loving relationship!
I’ll take smiling over taking blood pressure or anti-anxiety medication or developing a stress-induced ailment. It’s worth remembering that smiling is contagious and you have the power to make other people smile, and you can do this by simply passing your smile on to others.
Let’s starting spreading smiles because they might just turn to all out laughter, just like what happened to these folks on a German train before everyone knew it, everyone was laughing!

Good Health, well-being and life in general depend on a functional micro-circulation, the blood flow in the tiniest blood vessels of our bodies, known as capillaries. It is exclusively there where nutrients and oxygen, metabolic waste products and carbon dioxide are exchanged with all of the body’s cells. This microcirculatory system represents about 74% of our bodies’ entire network of blood vessels and is therefore one of the most important factors for normal, healthy body function. As we age, our capillaries become less perfused, and the flow of blood to the cells slows. The result is an increased risk of disease, fatigue and premature aging. However, we are able to significantly influence this process with BEMER Technology:
BEMER Technology, a biophysical application to optimize the body’s own natural vitality and wellbeing is the state of the art “Information Medicine”. By means of sending a unique signal to the body, BEMER stimulates the rhythmic pumping action (vasomotion) of our bodies’ tiniest blood vessels – the microcirculation. Distribution of the very essences of life is improved with its use. The benefits of BEMER technology is the support of the body’s own healing and maintaining abilities; they reach the entire body and can be experienced by everyone with no known negative side-effects. The signal itself is carried on pulsed electromagnetic fields. We chose Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) because it is safe, and because it is technologically and economically feasible. The use of PEMF however, is merely incidental to that purpose and not causal to the biological effects observed. It is just the carrier medium. We could as well use light waves or mechanical waves like ultrasound, etc. That is why BEMER is not to be considered a PEMF device per se. It is in fact very different from the many PEMF devices that are advertised on the market which really have not much in common with the BEMER technology at all. However, the Internet is full of self-proclaimed “review” websites who misrepresent material facts about the BEMER technology and its brand. BEMER is one of the pioneers and at the forefront in the new field of “Information Medicine” and with this, shifting an entire paradigm of holistic and preventive medicine and its therapeutic applications. It is compatible with and complementary to conventional medical treatments and procedures. A fast growing number of hospitals, medical professionals (physicians and practitioners) as well as athletes and individual BEMER enthusiasts of all demographics in over 40 countries around the world are successfully using clinically proven and FDA registered BEMER devices to improve the quality of their lives.
The BEMER Signal is the result of 15 years of ongoing scientific research (clinical trials, double-blind, placebo controlled studies in addition to the FDA study which is currently being conducted) in collaboration with independent research facilities such as medical faculties of diverse universities, independent institutes, health professionals and BEMER Group’s own research resources. Hundreds of thousands of BEMER applications all over the world and empirical observations by means of real-time images, using combined hi-tech intravital microscopy and laser-doppler flowometry, have ultimately led to the patented BEMER signal configuration. Since 2012, NASA is contemplating the possibility of integrating BEMER technology into their own developments as the BEMER signal is recognized as the most researched, most advanced and most effective signal for the enhancement of microcirculation and other physiological regulatory processes. In metaphoric words, it is precisely this unique signal configuration that constitutes a newly deciphered letter in the alphabet of a universal signal “language” that is understood by the body to trigger physiological processes. With these discoveries, BEMER is at the forefront in the new field of “Information Medicine.”
We often hear or read about different brands of “PEMF” devices who base their claims on the effect which pulsed electromagnetic fields somehow have on our bodies. It is often mentioned that biological effects are caused by certain energy outputs and frequencies which are to be high or low or user adjustable, etc. However, what is really important (and yet often neglected) is actually the presence of a very specific signal configuration in which the waveform plays an extremely important role as well. This specific signal configuration is what constitutes the “information” which is transferred to the body and which appears to cause the observed effects. In other words: It’s not the pulsed electromagnetic field per se, but the “information” carried by the field. Think of radio-waves which modulate our voices and carry spoken word. If the station is on air but nobody speaks, there is no information. So, the field is only the carrier medium. Indeed, just like PEMF can be used, other media could be used as well, for example light waves. In fact, BEMER research recognized this fact and developed light applicators which produced the same remarkable effect as its PEMF modules.
Analogies may help us understand this technology much easier!
Let’s imagine the BEMER signal as a popular song, as a beautifully composed sequence of musical notes (signal configuration) and its accompanying lyrics (information). Playing these notes in the right order, with the correct rhythm and with the right volume, we are able to recognize a well-known melody. Interestingly enough, it does not seem to matter what instrument we play the melody on. Whether played on a piano or a saxophone (carrier medium), we always recognize the song. The melody catches our attention and makes us receptive for the lyrics contained. And given these exact lyrics, that song becomes meaningful to us as it tells a story or is associated with memories, hence able to trigger emotions or other reactions. The song is the signal, and we react to it. So, if you will, the BEMER signal is just that song to our bodies.
But should users be able to adjust the signal, as other manufacturers suggest? Let’s look at the analogy again: If we changed the notes, changed the sequence, the tones, the rhythm, etc. of a complex composition, we would most likely change the melody beyond recognition. No one would recognize the song anymore. The uniquely characteristic melody is lost and with it, the song itself, the memories, the associations. Unless we were skilled and talented composers and musicians, by changing the notes and rhythm we would most likely end up creating a dis-harmonic noise. Additionally, with the lyrics changed to a language we don’t understand, this noise now would have become completely meaningless to us. Chances are we would not react to this type of “signal” anymore. It is as good as ‘honking’ a horn.
This is precisely where BEMER’s research of signal configurations over the past 15 years has led to; remarkable discoveries and developments of very peculiar and unique signal configurations which must not be altered. It it is important to preserve these signal configuration, unaltered.
Today, the BEMER signal is a well composed “song” carrying precise information which is recognized by our bodies, stimulating vasomotion and thus improving our microcirculation
BEMER Group has evolved to be a cutting-edge technology leader in the field of Information Medicine. Its patented signal configuration is the most effective signal developed so far. BEMER research has only just begun to uncover the elements of the universal “language” in which our bodies communicate and control our biological functions. It is a new holistic paradigm of medicine in which our bodies return to do what they were designed to do best: To live in health.
Let’s take a look at what we might find on line about BEMER technology!
Like almost everything you ‘google’ search today to research, you find some conflicting information, (I know I did when I first ‘vetted ‘ BEMER). Let’s remember that the Internet is an open forum for everyone to explore a vast source of information…and… unfortunately also misinformation. We hope that you will do as I did, and that is come to your own conclusions about the validity of the notorious claims and statements made on websites that say, “Don’t buy BEMER” which are often sponsored by competitors. You will find interesting that some self- proclaimed “review” websites are actually written precisely by representatives of BEMER’s competitors offering alleged objective comparisons. Needless to say that their devices are always found to be the best. Whatever one may think, it seems quite remarkable, to observe that some companies deem it necessary to engage in misinformation campaigns of this kind, posing as “reviewers” and citing scientific work which is in fact unrelated to their respective product. If you wonder why you will never find similar kinds of websites or statements from BEMER, it is because the BEMER company has anchored “ethics” very strongly in their mission statement. But besides that, and quite frankly, BEMER finds such behavior pitiful, unnecessary and more revealing about the author or company who runs these websites rather than the product. BEMER’s success in over 40 countries across the globe is the inevitable result of 15 years of extraordinary scientific achievements, technological developments and ethical business conduct based on integrity. As a mature and competent enterprise, BEMER just does not waste energy on putting others down, and certainly sees its financial resources better spent on research & development and true contributions to science and medical progress than on paying Google for primitive, hostile ad- campaigns, search-engine placement, spam and other non-sense. Instead, BEMER is a company that prefers to share it’s remarkable achievements with the world.
Ask for the Science!
I would like to encourage you to actually speak with companies like the one behind “Don’t buy BEMER” and ask them directly which scientific work specifically used THEIR particular devices and/or signal configuration. Next to hearing crickets, you will find that a lot of them (if not all) are quite remarkably vague on this significant detail. Instead, they mostly just jump on the bandwagon of generic PEMF research conducted by institutions unrelated to their business, making unspecific and unproven claims as to the applicability of the research to their devices. In other words: The all so often cited science has not much, if anything, to do with their products. Not so with BEMER. At BEMER you will find clinical trials that have been conducted using genuine BEMER devices and/or BEMER’s signal configurations.
The Truth about NASA
Despite the impressing NASA logo on some manufacturers’ websites (which by the way, is illegal to be used in this context of private marketing), NASA is neither endorsing these companies or any of their statements, nor has the signal used by them anything to do with what NASA is currently researching. In fact, the BEMER Company is currently in talks with NASA about a possible joint venture research project after its signal configuration and its bioactive efficacy had caught the attention of NASA. The “NASA square waveform” proudly cited by one of BEMER’s competitors is, quite simply, non-existent. But despite NASA’s interest and advanced relationships with the BEMER company, BEMER would not abuse its genuinely scientifically motivated relationship and illegitimately stamp the NASA logo on their website in an attempt to “gain some weight”.
Why is BEMER Technology different?
The BEMER signal is not based on mere mathematical predictions and theoretical presumptions about simple wave-forms, but empirically researched through real-time observations using combined intravital-microscopy and laser-doppler flowometry in the Institute of Microcirculation in Berlin, Germany and other institutes. Few research-centers in the world have this multi-million dollar equipment available with which BEMER technology has been thoroughly investigated, researched and developed over the last 15 years. The amount of scientific evidence produced with genuine BEMER equipment, is unprecedented.
What about the FDA?
Another misrepresentation of a material fact commonly found on “review” websites is the claim that BEMER is allegedly not registered with the FDA. This is incorrect and yet another untruth. BEMER is listed as a medical device and registered with the FDA. The records are available to the public and anyone can look them up on the FDA’s public website. In fact, BEMER is currently conducting clinical trials as part of an FDA study that will lead to BEMER being the first, and so far only, device of its kind to obtain an FDA approval (not a mere ‘registration’) for its physiological efficacy in its field of investigation.
BEMER Medical Usage
In Germany, BEMER is fully recognized as a class 2a medical device, successfully used in hospitals, by clinicians and hundreds of health professionals across the country. “BEMER Vascular Therapy”, an officially established therapeutic treatment modality, has its own billing codes and is reimbursable by various health insurance carriers. Medical doctors can and do “prescribe” BEMER Vascular Therapy and BEMER devices for home use.
