PEMF Whole Body Recharger

The Russians won the space race with Yuri Gagarin’s historic flight around the Earth. Even though his whole trip lasted only an hour and forty-eight minutes, when he arrived back to Earth he suffered greatly with depression, bone loss, muscle degeneration, decreased metabolism and impaired perception. Since that historic flight, “Zero Field Studies” have confirmed that if living cells do not receive the electromagnetic fields of the Earth, they die.
    Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) acts like a spark or impulse that keeps the cells of the body charged at an ideal voltage or energy level. The 70 trillion cells in the human body are like little batteries where the cell membrane converts the Earth’s magnetic pulse into electrical potential energy which “charges” the cells. This energy drives cell metabolism and helps to enhance oxygenation, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production and overall absorption of nutrition and essential elements into the cell and removal of wastes out of the cell. Without this energy, the cell voltage weakens and disease and illness set in.
    While we can always go outside and lay on the Earth to get this energy, over the past 300 years the Earth’s magnetic field has declined by more than 50 percent. Many theorize that we are in the process of a pole shift over the next couple of thousand years. On top of that, people spend too much time indoors, wear insulated shoes, drive insulated cars and walk on paved roads. The other problem is that we get too much of the unhealthy PEMFs, such as electro-smog or dirty electricity, from power lines, computers, cell phones, smart meters, TVs, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. These unhealthy energies block the natural frequencies from the Earth that are vital for life.

What is PEMF Therapy? All energy is electromagnetic in nature and nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange between cells. We are all familiar with the electro-cardiogram (EKG) and electro-encephalograph (EEG) which measure the electromagnetic activity of the heart and brain. When electromagnetic activity ceases, life ceases. Electromagnetic energy controls our chemistry. Disruption of this energy in cells causes impaired cell metabolism, and if our cells are not healthy, our body is not healthy—in whole or in part. 

What are some basic cell functions, and how do electromagnetic fields facilitate them? All cells need energy to function. Cellular energy requires ATP which is fundamental to all cells as well as to bodily function—it is necessary to sustain life itself. ATP regulates cell metabolism by transporting chemical energy within our cells. Low ATP levels cause cells to be sick and decrease 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 percent.

What is the history of PEMF and has it been studied or approved for any conditions? Although electromagnetic therapy became widely adopted in Western Europe, its use in North America was restricted to animals. Veterinarians became the first health professionals to use PEMF therapy, and this was usually to heal broken legs in racehorses. From that success, professional sports doctors took note. Using PEMF off label, they used the veterinarian devices on professional athletes. This ultimately led to legally licensed devices for human use in the United States.  
    In 1979, the FDA approved PEMF devices that were non-invasive to stimulate bone growth.
    In 2004, PEMF devices were approved by the FDA as an addition to cervical fusion surgery in patients at high risk for non-fusion.
    In 2011, PEMF therapy obtained FDA approval for brain cancer. A study published in 2006 found melanomas shrunk by 90 percent within two weeks of using TTF (tumor treating fields), a form of PEMF treatment. It has been demonstrated that cancer cells function at a significantly lower voltage than regular healthy cells and are weakened by electromagnetic stimulation.
    NASA was awarded patents US 6,485,963 B1 and US 7,601,114 B2 for their research on PEMF. As an adjunct to the NASA tissue repair patent, PEMF was also used to stimulate the growth of stem cells.
    As clinical evidence continues to mount and patients drive the demand for effective yet safer medical therapies, more devices will be approved in the very near future. Since the FDA cleared the first therapeutic PEMF device over 30 years ago, there have been no safety alerts issued, reflecting the overall safety of short sessions of therapeutic PEMFs.
    The benefits of PEMF therapy have been documented in multiple peer-reviewed clinical studies for a wide range of medical conditions. Randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trials using PEMF therapy have shown beneficial effects for chronic low back pain, fibromyalgia, cervical osteoarthritis, osteoarthritis of the knee, lateral epicondylitis, recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery, recovery from interbody lumbar fusions, persistent rotator cuff tendonitis, depression and multiple sclerosis.
    While no two PEMF devices are the same, you must keep in mind they are not all created equally and there are specific benefits to certain devices over others. There are also ideal frequency ranges and signal types to take into consideration.
