What is PEMF? Since the body has a magnetic field just as critical as the earth’s field, the Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field stimulator acts to strengthen the body’s magnetic field and thus affect all bodily systems and tissue. Just as we use MAGNETIC resonance (MRI) for diagnosis, so we can use magnetism for treatment. PEMF can heal and regenerate damaged tissue for faster recovery from sports injuries, torn tendons, fractured bones, and especially “incurable” neuropathy (numbness and pain in the feet). This form of PEMF therapy enhances cellular protein synthesis and improves circulation. It has also been shown to improve many psychological conditions such as depression and PTSD by modulating neurotransmitter levels in the brain.
Dr. William Pawluk’s book on PEMF: Magnetic Therapy in Eastern Europe explains how PEMF can provide a basic anti-aging strategy. Pathology starts in the magnetic field first and then in individual cell tissue, rising from damaging agents such as stress, pollutants, oxidation deprivation, chemical agents, genetic derangements, radiation, or drugs.
PEMF only affects damaged cells by reestablishing a normal magnetic field around them. The normalized field then induces normal tissue regeneration. PEMF penetrates all biological tissue unlike laser or ultrasound, going right through casts and splints. This stimulator, so popular in Europe and the Middle East, can affect every bodily system since electromagnetic fields surround the body as well as every organ and cell. PEMF:
—Activates the metabolism.
—Helps repair torn muscles and ligaments. Revitalizes skin tissue.
— Boosts the body’s defenses: Toxins & waste products are more rapidly broken down.
—Boosts Energy and healing processes through better micro-circulation.
—Increases formation of the body’s natural protective substances to combat free radicals, and strengthen the immune system.
— Improves the rolling and adhesion behavior of white blood cells that fight infection.
—Increases usable oxygen and ATP, the body’s own energy supplier.
I use acupuncture and massage with the PEMF for an enhanced synergistic effect. Most patients feel energized, relaxed, and usually pain free–immediately or within hours. Just as in every other field of science and industry dependent on field theory, for our own bodily health we must all begin to THINK FIELDS…!
