Farabloc Development Corporation: Innovative Fabric Relieves Pain

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 15, 2007) - This weekend The Holistic World Expo opens at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre offering the latest in natural healing and health care. One of these innovative products is Farabloc, a highly effective, yet little known fabric, that looks and feels like linen but is made up of extremely fine stainless steel fibers and nylon. Originally developed to stop Phantom Limb Pain suffered by amputees, Farabloc has undergone extensive international research and is now successfully used to treat many forms of chronic pain.

Frieder Kempe, the originator of Farabloc, first developed the product in the hopes of reducing the excruciating Phantom Limb Pain that afflicted his father, a WWII amputee. Kempe utilized the principles as laid out by Michael Faraday, inventor of the Faraday Cage as a guideline for his research. Based upon Faraday's findings Kempe determined that creating a magnetic barrier would block out the high Electro-Magnetic Field (EMF) that seemed to be an irritant to the damaged tissue; in this case the scar on the amputated limb. Other benefits provided by Farabloc's patented weave are the relaxation of the muscles, increased circulation and the reduction of creatine phosphokinase (CPK) levels typically associated with injury or stress to the heart, the brain, or muscle tissue.

Farabloc has undergone 25 years of research with papers published in leading international medical journals. The most recent article, 'The Efficacy of Farabloc, as an Analgesic in Primary Fibromyalgia', was published March 2007 in the distinguished British medical journal, Clinical Rheumatology. This paper conveys the results of a 4 year study involving 150 patients that were hospitalized for a period of 21 days. Each patient was given either a gown made from Farabloc or a non-active placebo fabric to wear to bed each night. What they found was that the patients that wore the Farabloc garments received significant benefit over the patients that wore the placebo garment. As printed in Clinical Rheumatology, the authors made the following statements;

"Patients with Fibromyalgia had less pain after sleeping in a gown made of Farabloc than with a placebo fabric. The changes from admission to discharge were assessed in each group separately. Statistically significant changes were shown in quantity of pain, quality of pain, and total paracetamol use."

Mr. Kempe and Dr. Don Nixdorf, DC, Executive Director of the British Columbia Chiropractic Association will be attending the World Holistic Show in Toronto this weekend. Dr. Nixdorf, a guest speaker at the show will present, 'Chronic Pain Prevention and Treatment using Farabloc', on Saturday, March 17 at 7:00 pm. Both Mr. Kempe and Dr. Nixdorf will be available for interviews.
