Pulsed electromagnetic frequency (PEMF) is most commonly known to be used as a reparative technique in the field of orthopedics for the treatment of non-union fractures, failed fusions and depression. With over 40 years of clinical studies, researchers suggest that the pulsed signal in PEMF activates the body’s chemistry to heal more rapidly.
Having healthy cells is vital to your overall health and well-being. By restoring the body’s natural electro-magnetic energy through PEMF therapy, cell metabolism is boosted, blood cells are regenerated, circulation is improved, oxygen carrying capacity is increased and inflammation is reduced.
PEMF provides stunning regenerative effects because these magnetic fields result in cells generating so much naturally derived energy that they are able to heal themselves. A magnetic switch turbocharges cellular energy production and reduces oxidative stress.
How Does PEMF Work?
We can think of PEMF as a battery charger for our cells. The voltage of a healthy cell is about 70-110 millivolts and when we get sick that voltage drops below 50 millivolts or less. Once our cells drop below that level they are unable to heal and remain dysfuctional. By inducing a mild electrical magnetic current into damaged cells, PEMF therapy slows or stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, increases blood flow of the cells, and re-establishes normal cell interaction. With reduced inflammation, pain decreases, energy increases, and faster tissue healing occurs.
PEMF therapy has shown to be effective at reducing pain both in the short-term and long-term. The ways by which PEMF therapy relieves pain include pain blocking, decreasing inflammation, increasing cellular flexibility, increasing blood and lymph circulation and increasing tissue oxygenation.
Blood Circulation & Lymphatic Vessels
As PEMF therapy mechanically stimulates blood vessels and blood flow, the blood vessels pump blood and oxygen into the cells. Simultaneously, PEMF therapy mechanically stimulates the lymphatic vessels and waste products are hauled away from the cells more efficiently. PEMF therapy supports immune health by mechanically stimulating lymphatic drainage and blood flow.
PEMF therapy treats the cellular source of swelling by recharging the cells with a mild electromagnetic current. This stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, reduces inflammatory fluids and allows an increase in blood flow, therefore increasing oxygen intake. This helps the cells heal faster with less swelling, pain and bruising.
Tissue and Muscle Flexibility
PEMF therapy successfully increases membrane and skin flexibility by increasing the synthesis of collagen, a crucial protein that supports membrane elasticity, within the fibroblasts. In doing so, PEMF therapy increases tissue and muscle flexibility, and increases range of motion.
Cellular Growth and Repair
The many intra/inter cellular processes and activity stimulated by PEMF therapy lead to faster cellular and tissue regeneration. This fact is shown by the results of many studies on a variety of tissues, including bones, spine, cartilage, intestines, blood vessels, nerves, brain and muscles.
Bone Growth Stimulation
PEMF enhances the electrical polarity by inducing an electrical field at the fracture site which supports the natural healing process and stimulates fracture repair. PEMF bone growth stimulation generates a time varying magnetic field within the body. Thus, the electric potential created by PEMF stimulates fracture healing.
PEMF is thought to help correct electrical signaling and chemical imbalances in the brain. Magnetic fields are sent through the scalp and skull to a particular area of the brain. When the magnetic field enters the brain it creates a small electrical current. This electrical current stimulates the brain cells (neurons) in a targeted brain area and causes them to fire (or send an electrical impulse).
PEMF restores and enhances the efficiency of the cells mitochondria and production of ATP, the vital element for charging up the cell walls. When sufficiently charged, the cell will then expel toxins and waste products more efficiently. Cellular pH alkalinity increases allowing for better oxygen uptake and suppression of harmful toxins and infection.
Effects of PEMF Therapy
PEMF therapy can prove to provide positive results for various conditions. Physicians around the world are observing improvements in patients’ energy levels and feelings of being ‘recharged’ when they are treated with PEMF. They also report the absorption of nutrients increased; detoxification is enhanced; and emotional health is improved.
Additionally, physicians are also reporting that patients with extremely bad blood values, severe gut or joint inflammations and have high acidity, benefit greatly from PEMF therapy. Their most powerful observation is the increased activity, size and movement of the white blood cells. PEMF improves circulation so the conversion of nutrients and oxygen inside the body can occur at optimum performance.
With PEMF, the immune system also becomes healthier; the nervous system relaxes; bones and joints become stronger; and liver, kidneys and colon can rid themselves of impurities thus detoxifying the body. PEMF Therapy can reduce pain and improve the quality of your life by allowing your body to function as it was designed to do.
Reported Benefits of PEMF Therapy:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Increased range of motion
- Faster functional recovery
- Reduced muscle loss after surgery
- Increased tensile strength in ligaments
- Faster healing of skin wounds
- Enhanced capillary formation
- Accelerated nerve regeneration
- Reduced tissue necrosis
What We Treat with PEMF Therapy
PEMF therapy does not treat medical conditions; instead it up-regulates the body’s functions and optimizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Improvements can be seen in the following:
- Bones, joint, muscles: arthritis, sprains, bursitis, osteoporosis, post-surgical wound healing, and jaw/tooth disease
- Skin and connective tissue: Diabetic ulcers, radiation and thermal burns, surgical incisions, muscle firming, reduction of wrinkles
- Organs: Heart, lungs, liver, kidney, prostate, uterus, etc.
- Brain: Memory, concentration, depression, Parkinson’s, ADHD, and mental focus
Unlike other systems that produce extremely weak magnetic fields, a major advantage of our systems is their enhanced magnetic field strength (about 1,000 times more powerful), which substantially improves treatment results. The systems are completely safe with absolutely no side effects.
