Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) has been used extensively for decades for many conditions and medical disciplines, and its results can be seen in animals as well as humans. The National Institute of Health has made PEMF a priority for research. In fact, many PEMF devices have already been approved by the FDA, some specifically for broken bone fusion, wound healing, urinary incontinence, migraine headaches, pain and tissue swelling, and treating depression and anxiety.
The science of PEMF is based on the fact that humans are electrical beings. Your body’s cells, and the surrounding fluid, carry electrical charges that permit the flow of important nutrients into and out of your cells. According to Dr. Harold Saxton Burr, a professor at Yale University, School of Medicine, voltage imbalances, either too high or too low, can cause cells to malfunction. He also discovered that cell voltage imbalances precede the onset of disease. Healthy cells usually measure from 70-100 millivolts. Heart cells usually measure from 90-100 millivolts. The cells in people with chronic illnesses and chronic fatigue usually measure from 30-50 millivolts. The cells in people with cancer usually measure from 15-20 millivolts. In other words, if your cells have energy, then you’re healthy – and if your cells don’t have energy, then you get sick.
Science has found that nerve cells must maintain a resting membrane potential of -70 millivolts (mV) to conduct impulses. According to the research of Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D., we need double the electrical energy of a normal cell to repair or make new cells or tissue in the body. In other words, you need extra energy to get the work done. This is where PEMF comes in. With over 2,000 published studies to document its effects, PEMF safely delivers pulsing magnetic fields to cells, giving them the energy duplicate, heal and repair. PEMF helps repair damaged cells making it among the most advanced injury repair and pain elimination technologies available.
We at Kure Spa have found that PEMF can be used as an immense catalyst for detoxification. We have seen detoxification increase by a factor of 2 to 3 when it is paired with Vibrosaun and Massage therapy. The opening of the detox channels in each cell allows massive discharge of toxins which would normally not be possible. A patient group at the Swiss clinic Paracelsus, using PEMF therapy during chelation, had a much higher wash out of heavy metals, resulting in lowering their levels of toxicity (as compared to the group without PEMF).
Cellular Effects of PEMF
- Improves intercellular fluid and blood flow
- Stimulates the production of ATP
- Increases Cellular Energy Levels
- Increases Cellular Oxygen Levels
- Promotes Cellular Healing
- Stimulates Inter-Cellular Communication
- Stimulates Electron Transport In Cells
Biological Effects of PEMF
- Significant Pain Relief
- Accelerates Tissue Repair
- Accelerates Cell Growth
- Increased Blood and Lymph Flow
- Promotes Faster Healing of Injuries
- Reduces Fibrous Tissue Formation
- Reduces Swelling and Inflammation
- Stimulates The Release of Endorphins
PEMF works to:
- Reduce pain, inflammation, the effects of stress on the body, and platelet adhesion.
- Improve energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the uptake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells.
- Balance the immune system and stimulate RNA and DNA.
- Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue.
- Relax muscles.
Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, became the first man in space on April 12, 1961. Yet, for his one hour and 48 minutes of making a single cycle around the earth, the man paid a heavy price. He came back to earth in near-critical condition, in spite of having had sufficient water, food and oxygen. He had severe bone loss, muscle degeneration, decreased metabolism, loss of perception/disorientation, and debilitating depression. He committed suicide at the an early age of 37.
The question of what caused Gagarin’s physical debilitation had to be answered before another flight was scheduled. Within short order, the puzzle was solved.
It was Gagarin’s separation from the natural pulsed magnetic energy of the earth that was the problem. Since that initial flight, all space-suits and space-stations have been equipped with pulsed magnetic devices. Science has documented that all living cells need exposure to pulsed magnetic fields; without this exposure, for even short periods of time, the effects on the body are the same as what Gagarin experienced. Within hours of non-exposure to the pulsating magnetic field of earth, cells die.
Cleopatra was probably the first celebrity to use magnets. Stories say that she slept with a Lodestone (magnetic stone) to keep her skin youthful. The therapeutic knowledge was passed to the Greeks who have been using magnets for healing since 2500 BC. Aristotle and Plato also referred to the benefits of Lodestones in their work.
The way in which the therapeutic value of magnetic pulse was first scientifically discovered has an interesting back-story. It begins when the telegraph copper cable was being laid in the ocean between London to NY. When there was a break in the cable, the technicians had to determine exactly where the break was. After all, they couldn’t just send a diver down into the depths of the ocean with a flashlight. Instead, they sent a high voltage pulse of electricity. Wherever the electric charge hit a break in the cable, it would jump and create a spark gap which made a noise . Acoustical equipment on a ship near-by could hear the sound. They were then able to send a diver down to the exact spot where the noise was coming from. Technicians on land would then shut off the electricity, and the diver would fix the break in the cable. But the men on land feeding the pulse through the cable with the high voltage machine noticed an interesting phenomenon: various pains that they had been suffering from disappeared.
Think of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy as a whole-body battery re-charger.
