Imagine your cells as batteries — daily stressors slowly drain them of the energy they need to function optimally. By the end of the day, your body, mind, and soul may feel completely depleted. That’s where PEMF technology comes in. PEMF generates energy at the cellular level without medically invasive procedures. This amplification of your natural energy encourages your body to function more effectively for overall wellness. By stimulating and exercising the cell, PEMF addresses dysfunction where it starts (at the cellular level). Users often report feeling relaxed during a PEMF session and energized afterwards!
What is PEMF?
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field. PEMF is the application of pulsed magnetic fields to the entire body and/or targeted areas of issue. Our Pulse Centers devices utilize PEMF technology that emits electromagnetic waves at different frequencies in order to stimulate and encourage your body’s natural recovery process. The waves created by PEMF devices occur in extremely brief burst and are very low-frequency, like the electromagnetic waves found in nature. In fact, most waves involved in PEMF treatments have a lower frequency than you would be exposed to during a thunderstorm.
How does PEMF help you feel better?
Your whole body, including skin, bones, and organs, is composed of cells. The membranes of healthy cells have positive and negative magnetic charges. These charges are required to exchange ions carrying the chemical elements your body needs to function, like calcium and potassium. Over time your cells deteriorate or get injured, and when that happens, they lose their magnetic charges – and with them, the ability to exchange ions. Symptoms like inflammation, fatigue, and pain are the result of damaged cells with low charges. PEMF technology targets the affected area and restores cells’ healthy electromagnetic charges.
The Science Behind PEMF technology
According to the Pulse Centers Website: “We can think of PEMF as a battery charger for our cells.”
“The voltage of a healthy cell is about -20 to -25 millivolts. We start to get sick when that voltage drops below -15 millivolts. Once our cells’ voltage drops below that level, they are unable to heal and become dysfunctional. By inducing a mild electrically induced magnetic current into damaged cells, PEMF therapy slows or stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, increases blood flow to the cells, and re-establishes normal cellular interaction. With reduced inflammation, pain decreases, energy increases, and faster tissue healing occurs.”
“Chronic disease and loss of well-being is always defined by low electrical charge. With enough voltage and raw materials, the body can heal almost anything.” – Jerry Tennant, MD, Healing is Voltage.
Dr. Jerry Tennant also states, “The cells in the body are designed to run at -20 to -25 millivolts. To heal we must achieve -50 millivolts. We experience chronic illness when voltage drops below -20 millivolts.”
It is not intended to treat a specific condition. Exposure to the pulsed electromagnetic fields can optimize the body’s natural self-healing and self-regulation functions. There are over 2,000 medical studies that report a positive effect of PEMF on the body. More studies are being published every day that conclude that PEMF gives positive outcomes in a variety of conditions, including Arthritis, Cell Regeneration, Circulation, Skin, Wound healing, Pain, and Refractory Depression.
One of the biggest barriers to your healing is good cellular health! You are only as healthy as your cells.
In the late 1800’s the great innovator Nikola Tesla discovered that it was harmless to pass electrical current through the human body [this is the reason magnetic field strength is measured in Tesla (T)]. Tesla also found that this was completely possible without making contact. Since then, the science behind PEMF has been well-studied.
- The FDA started approving PEMF back in 1979 for stimulating bone growth and nonunion fractures.
- In 1987, the FDA approved PEMF for post-operative edema and pain.
- In 2004, the FDA approved PEMF as an adjunct to cervical fusion surgery.
- In 2011, the FDA approved PEMF for treatment of glioblastoma multiforme, a common type of brain cancer.
- On October 13th, 2015, the FDA reclassified PEMF devices from their existing Class 3 category to a Class 2 status, and most PEMF devices that are sold today in the United States are FDA registered as wellness devices.
Out of more than 10,000 research papers and over 2,000 double blind studies on PEMF; one thorough and conclusive study that stands out is the 4-year NASA study lead by Dr. Thomas Goodwin, PhD, on the ability of PEMF to improve the growth and repair of tissues in mammals. NASA discovered that the benefits of low frequency, low intensity, rapidly varying PEMF includes better healing and regeneration of damaged or diseased tissue, greater cell longevity, accelerated cell growth, improved cellular voltage (mainly observed in nerve cells), upregulation of genes related to collagen production, cell restoration and growth.
This study is a landmark in proving the efficacy of PEMF on human cells for healing, growth and regeneration, specifically human nerve cells. Researching for many years led to the discovery that the lack of the earth’s magnetic field was making these astronauts ill and drained of their energy. NASA decided that it was time to add pulsating electromagnetic fields to the space capsules. Once NASA equipped space capsules with Pulsating Magnetic Fields, the astronauts no longer faced the same problems with sickness and lack of energy.
NASA scientists’ ultimate goal for magnetic therapy is to create an astronaut suit that would provide a countermeasure for the muscle atrophy and bone loss associated with space flight. NASA’s findings in regards to Magnetic Therapy to sustain astronauts’ well-being while in space have been instrumental in validating ongoing scientific studies and the development of PEMF devices.
Should I Explore PEMF?
PEMF uses no drugs and it has never been associated with any negative side effects, so it follows the tenants of wholistic medicine – to “First, do no harm”.
Many users have reported a marked decrease in their level of localize pain, and with continued use, an improvement in their overall health. If you suffer from pain – whether from an injury or the wear and tear that comes from overuse – PEMF may be able to help. Of course, you should always listen to your body and consult your doctor before trying any new methods of pain relief.
Pulse Centers PEMF technology is founded by years of research and practical application. They recognize that all PEMF based on this science is good for the user, but what sets their technology apart from others is the ability to adjust frequencies, intensities, and their unique accessories for maximizing PEMF benefits. At Pulse Centers, they have bridged the gap between early pioneering discoveries and modern technology to give us a natural, noninvasive complement to overall greater wellness.
