Understanding PEMF Energy Medicine – Your path to superior health and wellness.
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy, commonly known as PEMF, is energy medicine. Electromagnetic therapy is modeled after the earth’s own electromagnetic pulse to improve circulation and cell metabolism. PEMF Therapy introduces a low frequency pulsed electro-magnetic field (PEMF) that recharges the cells of the body to enhance circulation, oxygenation and hydration. When the blood is oxygenated, so are the organs and tissues, reducing disease. Recharged cellular function facilitates the absorption of nutrients and removes toxins from the body.
PEMF works at a cellular level. All the cells are affected and the body’s systems which deliver oxygen and nutrients while removing toxins, are enhanced. This revitalization results in the body’s components being able to perform the tasks they were designed for with optimal efficiency. For example, the liver removes toxins from the blood and stores glycogen, which is broken down into glucose and dispersed into the blood when the blood sugar levels are too low.
The liver also decomposes tired blood cells and produces hormones which are injected back into the blood. This process happens through the capillaries which pass through the liver. Toxins are removed, while sugars, proteins and hormones are added back into the blood.
Cartilage is the flexible connective tissue in joints between bones, in the rib cage, ears, nose, bronchial tubes and intervertebral disks. Cartilage does not contain blood vessels and therefore is difficult to heal. Injuries can affect the cartilage, but also joints will wear out over time, giving way to Osteoarthritis where the cartilage thins out. PEMF has been shown to directly affect bone healing and cartilage regrowth. The pulses electro-magnetic fields stimulate the cells responsible for regrowth.
The body handles pain by producing endorphins (endogenous morphine) in the central nervous system and pituitary gland. Endorphins block the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Modern medicine deals with pain by prescribing opiates such as Morphine, Oxycodone, Percocet, Opium and other drugs which are addictive and harmful to the liver, kidneys, and bowel, especially during prolonged periods of exposure. PEMF energy medicine stimulates the production of natural endorphins and therefore is very effective in dealing with pain, especially chronic pain, without the damaging side effects of pharmaceuticals.
PEMF helps the cells heal the underlying pathology and addresses the root cause and symptoms simultaneously.
Enhanced Immunity: The human body is protected by the immune system. When the circulation system is working, the lymphatic system is able to dispatch its resources to fight foreign substances present in the body such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, toxins and cancerous cells in the body.
The body requires a sufficient level of oxygen circulation, balanced glucose levels, consistent temperature, and optimal voltage (pH levels) to maintain health. When a high acidity levels are found in the body, bacteria, viruses, parasites and cancers thrive causing sickness and disease to spread. PEMF boosts circulation for the blood and lymphatic system to facilitate the body’s immune defences in a natural way without the dangerous side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
Insomnia is on the rise in our stress-related culture and is typically followed by functional impairment while awake. Pulsed magnetic fields stimulate the pineal gland to produce Melatonin, which is the most important hormone for sleep, anti-aging, and is also a powerful antioxidant. PEMF also stimulates the pituitary gland to produce the human growth hormone (HGH) to incite growth, cell reproduction and regeneration.
PEMF has a holistic effect on the body’s function, because it operates at a cellular level. All the issues of aging are addressed by PEMF as cells are energized to perform at their optimal level, restoring a quality of life as they perform the specific tasks they are designed for. Benefits include vitality, sleep improvement and metabolic stimulation.
What can I expect?
There are hundreds of studies showing a wide variety of applications for pulsing electromagnetic fields (PEMF). Many studies confirm that, providing basic rules are being observed regarding applied therapy parameters and the use of high quality equipment, the benefits for the patient are substantial. Overall success rate for this form of therapy varies between from 50 to 80%. Evaluation of more than 3000 patients at a large university hospital using Curatron systems has shown an overall success rate of 87%!
What causes pain in joints?
Cushions of cartilage lie between our bones. When these layers wear out the bones begin to grind against each other, causing extreme pain. Under normal circumstances, tiny electrical signals are created inside our body to replace cartilage. Due to diseases, e.g. osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, aging or injury, the normal replacement of cartilage is disturbed, causing pain and inflammation.
Will bone density increase?
A study at the Pacific Health Research Institute in Honolulu was designed to provide concrete data on the restoration of bone mass in post-menopausal females. Bone density increased an average of 5.6%. At the University of Graz in Austria a similar study also showed an increase in bone density after one year of around 6%. These results make all the difference between functioning in good health or having an increasing risk for spontaneous fractures. A proportionate increase in fracture risk is directly related to decreased bone density.
Does PEMF penetrate the whole body?
Absolutely. The combination of the generated energy level and the speed of change of the pulses guarantee full body is penetrated by the magnetic field, under condition that the minimum amount of energy generated is also sufficient.
Does PEMF influences oxygen levels within cells?
Yes, when the pulsing electromagnetic fields penetrate sufficiently deep within the human body. The electrical influence and increase of the membrane cell potential causes an increase in oxygenation, which in turn increases the supply of nutrients. This results in disposal of waste products from the cells and cell detoxification.
How do I know that more oxygen is distributed through my body?
Evaluation has been done by means of thermography (measuring the heat coming from a body by means of infrared technology). There are striking differences between a temperature scan before and after PEMF treatment, clearly showing an increased perfusion and thus an increase of oxygen supply.
How does PEMF reduce pain in joints?
Pulsating electromagnetic fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Increased calcium transport stimulates the repair and growth of cartilage which decreases pain dramatically.
How does PEMF relieve back pain?
PEMF has proven to be very effective for osteoporosis treatment because of improved blood supply and increased oxygen levels activating and regenerating cells. This results in improved calcium transport and absorption in the bones, decreasing pain dramatically. This additional bone density results in improved fracture healing and less risk of breaking bones.
Why do osteoporosis patients often have back pain?
Due to ‘brittle’ bones, osteoporosis patients often suffer from very painful micro-fractures in the vertebrae of the spine. After a few weeks of Curatron treatments, pain relief is obtained because these micro-fractures heal.
How does PEMF help sports injuries?
PEMF stimulates the body to repair damaged tissue and speed up the healing process, quickly reducing swelling. There is a dramatic reduction in pain and inflammation in treatment for sports injuries.
What is Electromagnetism?
The physics of electricity and magnetism is called electromagnetism. An electromagnet is a piece of soft iron with electrical wire wrapped around it. When an electric current flows through the wire, it produces a magnetic field and the iron is magnetized – the greater the current, the stronger the magnetic field. By coiling up the wire many times, the magnetic field will be made stronger.
Electricity within the human body?
It is long known that there is electricity in our bodies: electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG) and electromyogram (EMG). In 1956 the piezoelectric effect in bone was discovered by Fukada and Yasuda; a physicist and an orthopaedic surgeon in Japan. Pulsing electromagnetic fields induce electrical changes on a cellular level within the body and cell metabolism is influenced.
What about wound healing & varicose veins?
Pulsing electromagnetic fields improve peripheral circulation and oxygenation, causing better transport of nutrients and improving wound healing. In women with varicose veins there is fast pain relief and less fatigue in legs.
How is the system beneficial for Health & Fitness?
This is the beauty of PEMF: there are no side effects. There are no medications or invasive procedures. Occasionally someone might feel some tingling from improved circulation, but this is not a contraindication. Some also have a nice warm, comfortable feeling during therapy. However, there may be side-effects if used during pregnancy and thus it should not be used then.
