The physical and biomedical basis of the Rhumart phenomenon is discussed in greater details in a document called Scientific Basis and Bioelectricity, an excerpt from the RHUMART Journal (Vol.1, No.1).

The following summarizes the foundations of the physiological effects induced by this wide-ranging therapy.

First, the three basic physiological effects (relaxation, improved circulation and tissue repair) are induced in the human body by means of specific resonance effects, enhancing the transmission of neuro-signals responsible for sensory and motor activity of the nervous system. These biophysical resonances improve the effectiveness of communication between all cells, tissues, organs and higher centers in human beings, including the brain. This is so because the Rhumart wave form is so close to that of nerve impulses: human cells recognize the Rhumart signals as those of the nervous system.

Second, the weak directional magnetic-field impulses generated by the Rhumart Self-health system exert a driving force on red-blood cells due to the presence of magnetically sensitive molecules in those blood cells. The circulation of blood in partially blocked capillaries is greatly improved by this biophysical effect: the spectacular results obtained in cases of chronic varicose ulcers confirm this fact.

Third, due to the general relaxation of the nervous system induced by the Rhumart MAXI applicators and the resulting vasodilation of blood vessels, the resistance to systemic blood circulation is reduced, causing a neurological reflex action that gradually tends to normalize blood pressure; hence, Rhumart is an essential therapy for people suffering from "chronic" high blood pressure.

Finally, the relaxation and pain-killing effects of Rhumart are always associated with a significant anti-inflammatory effect, helping control chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis and osteoarthritis. The anti-inflammatory effect of Rhumart can also help prevent heart attacks. Indeed, it was recently discovered that inflammation is a major cause of atherosclerosis, leading to heart attacks, and that inflammation is involved in over 80 percent of chronic health problems.

The role of inflammation leading to atherosclerosis (and eventually to hypertension, causing heart attacks) has been well established, as reported in recent textbooks and scientific articles. Peter Libby, a specialist in the vascular biology of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular medicine, concludes his scientific article “Atherosclerosis : A new View ” (Scientific American, May 2002 pp 46-55) by affirming that:

"Atherosclerosis causes chest pain, heart attacks and stroke, leading to more deaths every year than cancer."
