Have you wondered what is PEMF (pulsed magnetic therapy) and how can it benefit you? Then take a look below for more information on this therapeutic treatment.

 

What Is PEMF?

  • PEMF (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields) is a therapy that uses pulsating magnetic fields to treat and promote health. It is sometimes called PEMFT or PMF. Magnetism has been used medicinally in China for over 2,000 years. It is only in recent years that it is being used in the West by doctors and therapists.
  • All living cells generate a natural electrical charge. This is created by the movement of ions in and out of the cell membranes.  These impulses are responsible for all the functions of your body. When you get an injury or become sick, age or are exposed to toxins, your cells lose their charge and are unable to transport oxygen, or take up nutrients.
  • In PEMF therapy, a safe electromagnetic pulse is applied to the body. This repolarizes cell membranes which regenerates the injured cells and stimulates the body’s own natural healing process.

 

Benefits of PEMF?

Pain Relief

  • When you’re in pain, you reach for pain-killing drugs. However, they can have harmful side-effects, especially if you’re taking them over a long period for a chronic condition.
  • PEMF is a safer form of pain relief. It stimulates the production of natural endorphins to relieve your pain and does not have the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
  • PEMF also stimulates the healing process to alleviate the condition causing the pain.
  • It has been used for pain relief in a variety of conditions such as soft tissue and musculoskeletal injuries, post-surgery, headaches, and migraines

 

Reduces Inflammation 

  • Inflammation is a natural process of repair in response to injury or illness. However, it can persist longer than necessary and chronic inflammation may result in conditions such as tendinitis, arthritis, or psoriasis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and many other conditions. Chronic inflammation is also a cause of chronic pain.
  • PEMF reduces inflammation and swelling by increasing the permeability of the cell walls. This allows oxygen and nutrients to flow into the cell and remove damaging toxins and waste.
  • When PEMF is used, wounds heal 2 to 3 times faster with less scarring.

 

Improves Blood Oxygenation

Oxygen is essential for maintaining and repairing your body cells. Your cells need proper blood-oxygen levels for cell metabolism, the energy necessary to function properly. This helps aid memory and

This helps aid memory and concentration accelerates the healing process and keeps skin healthy and young looking. PEMF helps this process and is particularly of benefit if you suffer from a breathing, lung or heart condition.

 

Improves Blood Circulation

PEMF helps with tissue healing and regeneration by opening and dilating (widening) the arteries and capillaries. This keeps blood flowing through the vessels. Improved circulation helps tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need and expels waste and toxins more quickly. This helps reduce inflammation, swelling, and bruising and aids wound healing. PEMF is an effective treatment for reducing blood pressure and in heart attack and stroke.

 

Bone and Joint Problems

PEMF is effective in treating many musculoskeletal disorders. It has been shown to accelerate bone healing and cartilage regrowth. Bones can heal up to 3 times faster than normal.

The pulsed electromagnetic fields stimulate the osteoblast cells (bone germination cells), to produce bone matter. It is an effective therapy for people who have arthritis or osteoporosis, or who have broken bones following surgery or injury.

 

Stimulates the Immune System

PEMF therapy stimulates cell metabolism and the lymphatic (detox) system. This offers numerous benefits to your body and immune system to fight off toxins, impurities and invaders like viruses and bacteria.

It also helps liver function. Your liver, a vital organ, is also involved in dealing with toxins and waste.

 

Improves Muscle Function

PEMF improves muscle energy production. A study conducted by NASA found that PEMF stimulated growth and repair in muscles leading to faster recovery.  It also helped relax muscles that are contracted or in spasm.

 

Reduces Stress

Too much stress is very harmful to your body, and accelerates aging. Stress is responsible for at least 65% of our illnesses so stress reduction is vital.  PEMF has been found to have many stress-reducing effects as it is soothing and relaxing.

 

Improves Sleep

If you have problems sleeping, PEMF can help you get deeper, less interrupted sleep. This is due to its relaxation effect.

PEMF is an effective therapy for treating many conditions. We hope you now have a better understanding of what PEMF (pulsed magnetic therapy) is, and how it can benefit you.

What Kind of PEMF Treatment Is Available?

The easiest treatment available with PEMF that we have found is by the use of a heating mat. These natural stone heating mats from Healthy Line have built in 7.8 Hz PEMF, that operates independently.
