Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field therapy, also known as PEMF, is a drug-free, non-invasive, pain-relief alternative treatment, which also promotes accelerated healing for ailments and injuries. In addition, PEMF therapy improves sleep, mental focus, and the body’s overall performance by helping the energy output and regeneration of the body’s cells.
How does PEMF therapy work?
Without an electromagnetic exchange between cells, nothing happens in the body. Human chemistry is controlled by natural electromagnetic energy. The cells are impaired when this electromagnetic energy is disrupted (for instance, from a bad diet, a small bruise to an injury, or merely from getting older). The body is not healthy if the cells are not healthy.
When a complementary electromagnetic field is introduced into the body, healthy electromagnetic exchanges can be reestablished. This is the reason why PEMFs are considered to be extremely useful; they are capable of stimulating all levels of the body. When applied externally, the PEMF therapy completely penetrates the body and affects individual cells, organs, tissues, and thereby the entire body.
At least 800 peer-reviewed papers are available that supports the fact that electrical currents and electrical shock can promote accelerated healing in bones and other tissues such as ligaments and tendons. However, the problem has invariably come down to two factors:
- Locating electrodes that are adequately close to the tissues to be stimulated electrically
- The reality that free electrical current follows an arbitrary path of least resistance
This problem is solved by PEMF therapy devices that use magnetic fields compared to direct electrical fields, further enclosing a larger area of the body.
These devices are designed to sustain the electrical surface tension of all cell membranes in the body. When the electrical surface tension of the cell membrane is maintained, neuron, tissue, and muscle cells are able to increase their productivity because nutrients remove waste by moving readily and efficiently into the cell.
Moreover, when the electrical surface tension of the cell membrane is maintained, there is improved blood supply allowing the red blood cells to distribute more amounts of oxygen across the body and ultimately boosting the immune system to encourage more rapid healing. By and large, better cell function ensures better performance of the entire body.
What types of conditions can PEMF therapy treat?
Since the cellular reaction takes place in every body, magnetic fields are not condition specific. As a result, PEMF therapy can be used to assist with the majority of conditions. In fact, clinical studies have demonstrated that PEMFs are capable of:
- Increasing circulation
- Decreasing inflammation
- Accelerating bone healing
- Enhancing muscle function
- Reducing the effects of stress
- Improving blood oxygenation, and much more
