Papimi & PEMF studies
A therapy using magnetic impulses may be able to bring people suffering from long-term dementia back to the land of the living.
The Munich non-fiction writer Georges Bourbaki has campaigned tirelessly for many years for a promising therapy for dementia sufferers. His crusade against forgetfulness was prompted by his mother, whose inexorable slide into Alzheimer’s deeply affected him. Today Bourbaki is himself an elderly gentleman of 75, who says fate had “deliberately placed a little Alzheimer’s egg in my own nest.” His own treatment lasted just two months, from August to September 2009, until all the symptoms of senile dementia had completely disappeared—yet probably not forgotten! “Before, I had started to suffer from dreadful mental deficits, for example I would forget things that you really shouldn’t, or I would no longer remember familiar street names, etc.,” Bourbaki recalls. “Fortunately, I had a friend who pointed out my mental lapses.” His previous dealings with the subject of Alzheimer’s meant that Georges Bourbaki had already acquired from Greek professor Panagiotis Pappas a magnetic impulse device known as PAP-IMI (similar devices are the Rehatron or Theracell). For about half an hour every day Bourbaki wore a magnetic coil linked to the device on his head; after just a few weeks, all signs of Alzheimer’s had gone.
