You've probably heard of PEMF therapy and wondered what's the buzz all about. Well, we are going to take a deep dive into this exciting technology that has shown great promise in alleviating chronic pain. You can find the episode
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy has been around for a while but has recently started gaining traction.
It is a noninvasive way of managing pain arising from musculoskeletal disorders and other inflammatory conditions.
Increasing evidence from scientific studies has shown it to be a safe alternative to conventional invasive treatments for chronic pain.
Besides pain relief, PEMF therapy amplifies our natural energies, which has the effect of helping the body heal itself from numerous conditions, including those of the digestive system.
This technology is so important that NASA equips its spacecraft with devices that produce these magnetic fields to maintain the health of its astronauts.
Our guest in episode 3 has consulted with NASA and also developed tissue engineering technologies for the Department of Defense. In addition, he has used PEMF therapy to recover from a lower back injury he sustained as a volunteer firefighter in 2006.
PEMF Therapy tries to mimic the earth's electromagnetic field by producing pulsating electromagnetic fields. These electromagnetic fields are critical to support life; without them, we couldn't survive.
The science behind this technology has been known for centuries and was first used for therapeutic purposes by Nikola Tesla at the end of the 19 century.
Later, many scientific studies have been done to study the health benefits of using this technology as an alternative treatment for chronic pain and inflammation.
Our body cells have an electrical current, which conducts electricity albeit in a small way. This helps with the basic functioning of cells and supports functions such as healing.
Due to the modern way of life, this electrical current and its surrounding magnetic field get interfered with. This is where the PEMF therapy comes in.
A specific frequency pulse of an electromagnetic field is dispensed to the body to enhance the basic functioning of the cells. This amplifies our natural energies and has the effect of helping the body heal faster, fight inflammation, and alleviate chronic pain.
This is a common question that people have regarding this technology. It is important to note that even if the earth does produce these electromagnetic fields, we no longer live the way we used to centuries ago.
The average person spends virtually all their time inside a building. These huge blocks of cement and steel interfere with the natural electromagnetic field.
In addition, we are surrounded by gadgets, all high emitting levels of EMF, which ultimately interfere with the natural EMF. This affects the natural way our bodies interact with the earth's EMF, which in turn lowers our bodies' ability to repair and heal.
This is a big concern for many people who want to try out this alternative healing mode but are afraid of its safety.
This technology, when used as instructed, is completely safe. Research studies done to ascertain its safety on human beings have proved that it is safe when used in the correct frequencies.
Besides, PEMF is noninvasive and only uses the natural magnetic frequencies that surround us.
Many doctors and researchers have recently started paying more attention to this technology and the possibilities that remain untapped.
Taking into consideration that alleviating pain costs Americans upwards of $650 billion a year and the promise that this technology has shown, Robert believes that there is a Nobel prize or two to be won here.
"Chronic pain strips the humanity from us, it's worse than being in a gulag" Robert Dennis .
When applied together with other treatment modalities, PEMF has been highly effective.
Functional and integrative medicine practitioners have reported accelerated healing rates when they combine PEMF therapy with other modalities for the treatment of chronic pain and other conditions.
"PEMF is a good adjunct therapy; there's a lot of therapies that go well together. And this is one that I think we have to all take a serious look at" Damon Ernst. .
PEMF therapy and Ozone therapy are a powerful combination in alleviating pain, helping the body heal itself naturally, and reducing dependency on pharmaceutical drugs.
Unlike the pharmaceutical industry, with their pill for every ill paradigm, PEMF and Ozone therapies ****link to Episode 7**** deal with the root cause of the problem.
When used with other modalities adjunctively, PEMF therapy can help with:
This is a personal decision that you'll have to make. If you are tired of the traditional solutions and are willing to find out new alternative ways to achieve healing, then you should indeed consider looking into it.
