Origin of SME Technology in agriculture

Preventing Johne’s Disease in dairy: An example of the relevance of ElectroMagnetic Field treatments for animal health.

“The characteristics of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP), the causative agent of Johne’s Disease, and the absence of a cure or an effective vaccine against Johne’s Disease ask for constant monitoring of livestock and drastic herd management measures to restrict transmission within and between herds.” (Barkema et al., 2014).

Experimental evidence using the technology called SMET (‘Stimulated Magnetic Energy Technology’), developed by the late Prof. Noordenbos and the late Mr Theo Bijkerk, makes it plausible that MAP bacteria can be negatively affected by weak low frequency electromagnetic fields. The treatment either directly weakens the bacteria or it activates the immune system of its host.

This emerging SME-Technology may offer a breakthrough, as current preventive measures are quite drastic and are only realized on a limited number of farms.
