What Is PEMF?
PEMF is a powerful healing tool, for muscle recovery, resetting the central nervous system, strengthening the immune system, and improving cellular health. There are SO many benefits to a PEMF therapy session – it’s out-of-this-world, literally: astronauts use PEMF to recover from a debilitating space mission.
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. This type of therapy sends bursts of low-level magnetic frequencies directly into the body. These low frequencies pass through the skin to penetrate and heal muscle, bones, tendons, and even organs. Many people like PEMF therapy as a non-invasive way to treat injuries, chronic pain, and even long-term issues like depression and diabetes. The goal is to expedite recovery from the inside out.
Our bodies are electric – every heartbeat generates electromagnetic waves throughout the blood vessels of the body, stimulating tissues at a cellular level. External magnetic fields and the normal electric and electromagnetic fields produced by the body interact.
So, a magnetic field passing through our whole body will have an electromagnetic effect on each of our 70 trillion cells. As a result, magnetic fields act in basic and fundamental ways on molecules and tissues. They affect the most basic functions of all cells- human, animal, and plant included.
Some of the basic actions of a cell are to generate energy, to eliminate waste, to repair and regenerate itself, and perform its predetermined functions based on the cell’s type and location in the body.
How It Helps You
Magnetic fields cause or increase motion of ions and electrolytes in the tissues and fluids of the body. It’s both easy and quick to move an ion or electrolyte in a living organism using magnetic fields. This movement stimulates a vast array of chemical and electric actions in the tissues of the body, helping them to rebalance or heal themselves where necessary.
All cells need energy to function. Cellular energy requires ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and is fundamental to all cell and body functions and is necessary to sustain life itself. ATP regulates cell metabolism by transporting chemical energy within our cells. Low ATP levels cause our cells to be sick, and decreases their ability to heal, regenerate, or function properly. Through the increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields help cells increase their energy (or “charge”) by up to 500%.
Magnetic fields also affect the charge of the cell membrane, which allows membrane channels to open up. These channels are like the doors and windows of a house. By opening cell channels, nutrients are better able to enter the cell, and waste is more easily eliminated from the cell. This helps to rebalance and restore optimum cell function. If you restore enough cells, they will all work more efficiently.
Cells of the same type come together to make tissues, and those tissues come together to make organs. So, by restoring or maintaining cellular function, you will, in turn, restore or maintain organ function, allowing the entire body to function better.
We all know that the body ages over time. Maintaining the function of every individual cell at an optimal level every day is an important part of slowing aging.
Additionally, PEMFs clear the body’s energy circuits, the acupuncture and chakra system, as shown by meridian stress assessment testing. Reducing the stress responses in the body will allow individuals to be proactive in slowing the aging process.
