‘Charge’ Your Cells for Natural Health
I have heard Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (“PEMF”) described as a battery charger for your cells. It’s a simple, yet accurate description. So just like your phone needs a charge, so does your health.
What is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy?
PEMF uses devices to emit electromagnetic waves at different wavelengths in order to stimulate and encourage your body’s natural recovery process.
PEMF technology is popular with both physicians and patients due to its effectiveness and safety. It has been approved by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) for over 20 years for bone healing, post-surgical pain and healing, pain and inflammation, knee pain and even depression. And in 2011, the FDA approved PEMF Therapy for treatment of brain cancer (source).
Health Benefits of PEMF
Here are the ways Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy can improve your health:
Your whole body – skin, bones, and organs – is composed of cells. As you age, your cells deteriorate or get injured and lose their magnetic charges. They also lose the ability to exchange ions. When this happens, you can experience inflammation, fatigue, and pain.
PEMF restores your cell’s charges, enabling them to perform their natural functions. This technology is also known to help cells detox. Between the chemicals found in our food, water, air, and personal care products, we live in a toxic environment. PEMF helps cells regenerate, which is essential to remove toxins and free radicals from our bodies.
PEMF “helps to improve blood circulation, not by increasing blood pressure or heartbeat, but by optimizing energy of the very cells in the capillaries and arteries. Improved circulation also alleviates pain by reducing edema (swelling), regenerating diseased and damaged tissue, and repairing fractured and torn bones and tendons” (source).
When your cells struggle to function, so does your brain. At the same time, brain inflammation can also be responsible for any brain fog or decline in cognitive function, depression, stress and anxiety.
When PEMF is introduced, it’s absorbed into your brain cells and helps facilitate the repair of cells that may have been damaged. PEMF therapy has anti-inflammatory effects on the brain tissues, just like any other part of the body.
One study found that after five weeks of active treatment with low intensity transcranial PEMF, there was a 62% reduction on a Depression Rating Scale among those in the active T-PEMF group (source).
This electromagnetic therapy is designed to increase the energy of cells; this actually makes cancer cells unhappy. Click here to watch an interview with Dr. Martin Bales speaking about PEMF therapy.
When PEMF was studied for glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain cancer, the FDA found that “the unique shape and electrical characteristics of dividing tumor cells make them susceptible to damage when exposed to the machine’s electrical fields and temporarily stop tumor growth” (source). And patients did not experience any side effects.
One testimonial I read said, “I felt like I had napped for an extended period of time and left in a state of extreme relaxation” (source). As a busy mom, wife and business owner that appealed to me as much as the health benefits. But in all seriousness, PEMF therapy works on a cellular level to boost your health.
