PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD (PEMF) THERAPY


Cellular Exercise and PEMF Therapy

Poor diet, lack of exercise, harmful electromagnetic fields from electronics, toxic chemicals, air pollutants and environmental factors have all been proven to contribute to chronic pain and illness.

The key to overcoming this lies right inside of your body.

When we look at the human cell it functions much like a capacitor, accumulating and holding an electrical charge. Just as a cell phone battery holds a charge, the cells in our body also hold a charge.

A normal, healthy cell carries a voltage of 70 millivolts. Whenever an area of the body is ill or injured, the voltage in those cells drops. In fact, people who are sick, may experience a voltage drop to around 20 millivolts. As a result, not enough ATP is produced to power the cell.

PEMF builds energy within cells, oxygenation and alkalizing them. This causes blood cells to separate, creating more surface area for oxygen and waste exchange, normalizing cellular voltage levels, offsetting illness or injury.

This means that PEMF can alleviate pain, inflammation, but it also facilitates tissue healing. So PEMF doesn’t just cover up symptoms, but also helps the body to heal faster.

PEMF therapy is cleared by the FDA for several conditions including:

  • Stimulating bone growth
  • Treating post-operative edema and pain
  • Treating depressions in patients unresponsive to medication

Below is an x-ray taken of a doctor who broke his arm on the 10th of march. The doctor applied PEMF using the same technology we have in our clinic to the site of the fracture for 9 days for one hour a day.

The after picture was taken 9 days after the first picture on the 19th of March and as you can see, the bone has grown back together.

While this demonstrates the effect PEMF has on the healing of bone, keep in mind, it is having this effect on all the cells and tissues of your body.

PEMF INCREASES:

  • Circulation
  • Bone density
  • Range of Motion
  • Muscle strength
  • Nerve response
  • Energy production
  • Lean muscle mass
  • Stamina
  • Endurance

PEMF DECREASES:

  • Pain
  • Stress
  • Edema
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasms

PEMF changes your energy level at the cellular level

PEMF affects the capacitance of all the cells it contacts, improving their ability to hold a charge. Capacitance is the ability of a cell to store an electrical charge. Recharging the cells accelerates the body’s natural healing ability.

PEMF stimulates GABA

PEMF has been found to induce GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter that calms and relaxes) in certain parts of the brain. When the body relaxes, the parasympathetic nervous system takes control and the body can start or continue its natural healing process.

PEMF improves sleep and relaxation

PEMF increases GABA levels and counteracts the sympathetic nervous system response in the body. This promotes better sleep and reduced stress.

Dr. Andrew Basset, M.D., a researcher at the Columbia University Medical Center, while studying the effect of PEMF on the cellular function of connective tissue concluded:

“A wide variety of challenging musculoskeletal disorders has been treated successfully over the past two decades. These include nerve regeneration, wound healing, graft behavior, diabetes and myocardial and cerebral ischemia (heart attack and stroke), among other conditions. Preliminary data even suggest possible benefits in controlling malignancy.”


Conditions that benefit from cellular exercise and PEMF therapy

  • Arterial insufficiency
  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Bone fractures
  • Bronchitis
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hepatitis and liver disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation and pain
  • Insomnia and sleep issues
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Osteopenia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Ovarian Cysts
  • Painful menses
  • Parkinson’s
  • PMS
  • Sprains
  • Shingles
  • Sinus issues

Pulse Centers

At our facility, we use PEMF equipment from Pulse Centers. The Pulse Centers systems produce up to 10Hz of pulsing power and generates a magnetic field more than 3 times stronger than any Cellular Exercise system in the US.
