PEMF For Healing and Prevention

Updated on January 11, 2023

What is PEMF Therapy (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy)? 

PEMF Therapy is a type of energy therapy that uses the earth’s natural condition to produce pulsing electromagnetic fields. The frequency of the earth’s natural electromagnetic frequency (EMF) is roughly 7.8 Hz, with a strength of about 1 pico tesla.This is the Schumann Resonance, which we have been experiencing our entire lives. It is all around us. Astronauts’ bodies begin to disintegrate as soon as they leave the ionosphere since they are no longer in this Resonance – we need the earth’s EMF to stay healthy.The earth’s electromagnetic field is as important to humans as air, water, food, and sleep. We wouldn’t be able to exist without EMF. 

PEMF is a cutting-edge non-invasive therapy that uses inductive coils to send electric and magnetic fields into the tissues to treat a range of acute and chronic diseases. PEMF therapy has been more popular in the last decade, however portable PEMF devices have been used for therapeutic purposes for over a century. Clinical data supports the use of PEMF treatment in people and animals for acute and chronic medical problems. A PEMF device produces electromagnetic fields that are beneficial to a range of biological functions. 

PEMF treatment may be used to treat a variety of ailments in both animals and people. PEMF improves bone repair, wound healing, antimicrobial qualities, and pain, inflammation, and edema reduction. PEMF has recently acquired favor among veterinarians. PEMF can be utilized in veterinary medicine as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other therapies. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized PEMF machines for sale in humans to treat orthopaedic disorders such certain bone fractures, plantar fasciitis, edema, and post-operative pain.

History of PEMF therapy

PEMF science dates back thousands of years, when ancient Greek and Chinese societies used magnetic fields for medicinal purposes. Nikola Tesla invented the ‘Tesla Coil,’ an electromagnetic device that he employed on his patients at the end of the nineteenth century. He discovered that they generally felt instant alleviation from their discomfort. Clinical research on electromagnetic fields were done in Russia and Japan in the 1960s, and over 30,000 papers have been published since then showing the benefits of pulsing electromagnetic fields for a wide range of health problems and general human health and welfare. 

Bassett and his colleagues pioneered a novel way to treating delayed fractures in the 1970s, a technique that used a highly particular biphasic low frequency signal to treat non-union/delayed fractures. Alan Dwyer of Australia was the first to try electrical stimulation in the lumbosacral area.

Prior to the year 2000, a great deal of scientific work was being done in scientific isolation behind the Iron Curtain, in parallel with PEMF research being done in Western Europe, the United States, and Japan, as summarized in a detailed technical report, showing scientific evidence for promising benefits from the use of PEMF for a wide range of applications, including peripheral vascular disease. 

The first health practitioners to utilize PEMF treatment were veterinarians, who used it to try to repair broken legs in racehorses. The FDA authorized a pulsed electromagnetic field device as an adjuvant to cervical fusion surgery in patients at high risk of non-fusion in 2004.

On September 8/9, 2020, the FDA proposed that PEMF wellness devices be moved from Class 3 to Class 2. Although ideas that electricity may help bone regeneration date back to 1841, scientists did not devote substantial research to the issue until the mid-1950s.

Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized PEMF devices for use in humans to treat orthopaedic disorders such certain bone fractures, plantar fasciitis, edema, and post-operative pain.

How Does PEMF Therapy Work? 

PEMF’s objective is to improve the body’s natural cellular communication mechanisms as well as the cells’ ability to produce energy. As a result, internal cell integrity improves and cellular healing improves. 

Consider the body’s cells in the same way as a battery does. When we are sick or damaged, the voltage in our cells is lowered, and our capacity to operate efficiently is also reduced. Energy, or the ability to replenish your batteries, is required for your body to repair. PEMF Therapy sends out helpful natural magnetic waves that reach every cell, tissue, and organ in the body. Electrical impulses are generated by the waves, which charge the cells to their correct voltage. The effects increase cellular metabolism, function, and efficiency, allowing the body to begin healing and regulating itself to restore its natural balance. Sentient Element PEMF machines has the highest intensity and widest range of frequencies in today’s market.

Role of PEMF in Healing and Disease Prevention

The earth’s magnetic field (Schumann Resonance) has decreased by 50% in the last 300 years. Because of changes in society, the typical person spends 90% of their time indoors, living and working in concrete structures, driving metal automobiles, and wearing rubber soled shoes, we are shielded from naturally occurring beneficial PEMF. As a result, cell membrane integrity has been impaired, resulting in weakened immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, and sadness. 

Another aspect of modern life is that we are exposed to harmful high-level EMFs via power lines, computers, mobile phones, microwaves, and televisions, among other things. These high levels of EMF produce a “sub-molecular electronic disruption,” which necessitates the use of lower levels of helpful PEMF to restore damage to cell membrane ionisation and integrity. 

The following advantages of PEMF Therapy’s can help in healing and prevention of diseases:

  • Reduces pain, improves sleep, and alleviates insomnia 
  • Increases energy and vitality by improving circulation and increasing oxygen absorption. 
  • Enhances Metabolism 
  • Reduces Inflammation and Swelling 
  • Improves the immune system, increases bone density, and aids in the healing process 
  • Injury Recovery Time is Reduced 
  • Improves nutrient absorption 
  • Increases range of motion, which lowers stress and improves athletic performance. 

What Conditions Can PEMF Therapy Treat?

PEMF can be used in the following conditions for healing, providing symptom relief and prevent worsening of the condition as standalone treatment  or alongside other treatments:

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Stress
  • Sleep disorders 
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Musculoskeletal or neurologic conditions like Parkinson’s 
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Lyme Disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Fractures
  • Tendonitis 
  • Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)
  • Chronic wounds
  • Diabetic neuropathy and diabetic wound 
  • Post-operative pain 
  • Cognitive dysfunction 
  • Migraines
  • Crohn’s disease 
  • Eye and hearing disorders
  • Cancer
  • Faster healing of traumatic injuries and surgical wounds

Is PEMF Therapy a Safe Treatment? 

PEMF is a non-invasive, safe healing technique that uses only natural magnetic frequencies that fall between the 0.5 and 15 Hz ‘biological window’ of the earth’s natural frequencies. PEMF therapy is well tolerated by humans and animals. The FDA and other international certifying organizations have certified it as the most scientifically investigated and documented field of energy medicine. Pulsed electromagnetic field treatment is currently being discovered and used by a number of well-known doctors and researchers. Specialized PEMF therapy is only doctors or a licensed therapist under direct supervision of a doctor, to ensure safety and efficacy.
