PEMF Therapy: Everything You Need to Know
What is PEMF Therapy
There are over hundreds of millions of Americans who suffer from daily chronic pain. With modernization and new technology, individuals are currently seeking alternative therapies to provide relief, that do not necessarily require the use of medical drugs, painful injections and surgeries. PEMF is considered to be part of these forms of treatments, a therapy that is characterized as safe, quick and painless. PEMF Therapy is short for Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency Therapy.
What PEMF Therapy does, is that it uses pulsed energy waves to heal injured and damaged parts of a patient’s body. This includes any type of bone related pains and conditions as well. PEMF is actually a practice that has been around for thousands of years, having the proven ability to heal patients and help them to live happier and healthier lives for long periods of time.
PEMF is known to be able to treat a range of conditions that an individual may be suffering from. These include chronic body conditions, head and neck problems, back pains, and joint issues such as arthritis. PEMF therapy is really a fantastic treatment.
The History of PEMF
Despite most individuals today straying towards alternative methods of therapy due to modernization and new research concerning the negative effects that certain medical procedures may have, the origins of PEMF therapy stem back to hundreds and thousands of years.
PEMF therapy is not a new remedy or form of treatment like some may assume it to be. Interestingly, the use of magnetic therapy itself, is actually something than can be traced all the way back to 2000 B.C. During that time, various health issues were known to be treated via magnetic stones. Further down across the years, magnetic stones known as lodestones—stones that acquire natural magnetic properties—where typically placed on a patient’s body with the attempt to improve his or her health.
Electromagnetic field therapy, specifically, has been used ever since the invention of electricity in the 19th century. PEMF therapy specific technology, however, was as a matter of fact developed during the mid 20th century, right after the end of the Second World War. PEMF therapy originated subsequent to NASA’s examination concerning astronauts and their health symptoms following their return to earth. On their return to our planet, astronauts suffered from symptoms such as bone loss, fatigue and depression, amongst others.
NASA invested $3.5 million on research and examination and found that there were significant benefits to pulsed electromagnetic fields on symptoms that astronauts suffered from following their return to our planet. PEMF therapy was used to successfully repair astronauts’ tissue trauma, to heal broken bones, to ease symptoms of neurodegenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and to also grow new tissues for transplants.
These valuable NASA conducted research findings can be found in the study “Physiological and Molecular Genetic Effects of Time-Varying Electromagnetic Fields on Human Neuronal Cells.”
How Does PEMF Work?
To be more specific, the way that PEMF works is not by directly treating a specific condition, rather, what PEMF therapy does, is that it is able to optimize the natural self-regulating and self-healing functions of your body. This way, PEMF therapy assists the body to fight and treat what needs to be treated.
As previously mentioned, PEMF works by using a pulsing, safe and low level electromagnetic field. These energy waves are able to pass through your skin and make their way deep into parts of your muscles that cannot be easily reached by other methods such as massages and physical therapy.
They are even able to target tendons, organs and bones, activating and stimulating your cell’s energy to encourage the body’s natural repair mechanisms. More specifically, this electromagnetic field of energy waves boosts and powers your mitochondria—known to be your cell’s battery packs. In a sense, it is almost like powering and energizing your body’s batteries. This in turn allows your body to heal and perform at optimal levels. PEMF therapy is a safe, quick, painless and incredibly effective procedure.
PEMF devices, which are used during the procedure of PEMF therapy, produce completely safe and effective results. It is important to distinguish the difference between regular electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that can be harmful to human health and the human body, and the safe, secure and harmless electromagnetic energy waves that are used during PEMF therapy.
The duration, and most importantly, the frequency of PEMF therapy via PEMF devices, are what make all the difference and greatly distinguishing these two forms of electromagnetic fields. The therapeutic frequency and duration of energy that PEMF devices exert are similar to the frequencies that we encounter on a daily basis in nature.
To put things into perspective, the frequency of the energy waves that PEMF devices deliver to our bodies through PEMF therapy, are in actuality less than those that we receive during a thunderstorm. In other words, our bodies know how to naturally deal with and react to the frequency of energy waves of PEMF therapy. PEMF therapy is an absolutely safe procedure, that does not display any level of potential harm. PEMF Therapy is an absolutely safe procedure, that does not display any level of potential harm.
A PEMF mat is part of what makes PEMF devices whole; a PEMF mat is the part of the PEMF device that has physical contact with the patient’s skin. A PEMF mat is a portable mat, and is what is able to deliver the pulsed electromagnetic waves to a patient’s body. The healing energy that a PEMF mat passes through to the body provides the patient with a deep tissue massage, providing relaxation and reducing stress and actually dropping your blood pressure by 20-30%. PEMF therapy is really like a “spa treatment,” providing you with benefits that you would not be able to obtain through other forms of more ordinary treatments.
PEMF Treatment: What can PEMF Therapy Treat?
PEMF can help to treat a great range of conditions. PEMF Therapy can help with stress management and emotional health, brain focus and brain function, immune system support, recovery and performance, sleep and relaxation, the health of bones and joints, metabolism, energy levels, and even blood circulation. PEMF Therapy is even able to treat chronic body conditions such as cancer, kidney problems, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Tourette’s, stroke, epilepsy, diabetes, spinal cord injury, glaucoma, pancreatitis, Lou Gehrig’s, multiple sclerosis, lupus, hepatitis, endometriosis, depression, headaches, lung disease, sexual disorders, sleeping disorders, ulcers, urinary issues, and a lot more.
What are the Benefits of PEMF Therapy?
PEMF Therapy Optimizes Electric Potential of Our Cells
Our bodies require electricity, in order to be able to send signals to and from the brain and through the entire body. During PEMF therapy, the electric waves that are absorbed through your skin effectively re-align and optimize our cells’ potential.
The resting cells in our bodies have a negative charge inside of them, and a positive charge on their outer part. What is able to generate electrical currents, is the flow of charges across the cell membrane. When our cells are stimulated through PEMF therapy, this positive charge is then able to enter the inner part of the cell via open ion channels. The positive charge of the inner part of the cell is then able to trigger additional electrical currents throughout the body, in turn become electrical pulses, what is also known as “action potentials.” This helps to ensure that our bodies are able to initiate the precise thoughts, movements and behaviours. Not obtaining the correct movement of our electrical currents could potentially cause illness. PEMF Therapy helps to prevent this, as it is able to restore our electrical currents to their regular-functioning states.
PEMF Therapy Has Proven Success
PEMF Therapy has over 60 years of proven success, ever since it first started in the mid 20th, right after Nikola Tesla invented the first magnetic loop coil. There are a good number of evidence-based studies that really prove the positive effects and successful results that PEMF therapy has on treating patients with a wide range of conditions that patients suffer from, including and not limited to clinical surgeries.
PEMF Therapy Is Safe
The difference between regular electromagnetic fields (EMFs) is that EMFs are ionizing and can be harmful to human health and the human body, due to their high levels of radiation. The high levels of radiation that EMFs create could potentially cause DNA and cellular damage. The electromagnetic energy on the other hand that is used for PEMF therapy, uses electromagnetic energy waves that are non-ionizing and have very low levels of radiation. This makes PEMF therapy safe, secure and harmless to patients that are undergoing this procedure.
