Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields (PEMFs)
Our Earth has a magnetic field that fluctuates (pulses) and this pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) is a key component for life. The Earth's PEMF acts as
- a guidance system for planes, birds, and bees, etc.
- a catalyst for every biochemical reaction that happens on Earth.
- Early proof of our need for the Earth's pulsed electromagnetic fields, (often referred to as "PEMFs"), was observed after Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin from the Soviet Union circled the Earth in April 1961. Yuri returned from space and suffered from depression, decreased metabolism, impaired perception, bone loss, and muscle degeneration and died at the age of 34 from mysterious circumstances. And he was only in space (and without the magnetic field of Earth) for less than two hours!
Subsequently, research confirmed human cells deprived of pulsed magnetic fields die quickly; in fact many researchers refer to PEMFs as "The Fifth Element." Along with food, water, oxygen and sleep, the body needs PEMFs to survive. Unfortunately the Earth's magnetic field is getting weaker and some research suggests that it is almost 100 times less powerful as it was during the time of dinosaurs.
Each of the approximately 75 trillion cells in your body vibrates or oscillates. Using the appropriate frequencies, electromagnetic impulses can induce resonant vibrations to stimulate a variety of cellular functions. However, only specific range or spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies are readily accepted by the body (called the biological window) trigger physiological responses.
One key function of the cell membrane is to regulate the environment for biological processes inside the cell. This is achieved through selectively allowing water, nutrients, and elements to enter or leave the interior of the cell. One way the cell membrane achieves selective "permeability" is through the establishment of a membrane potential. The membrane potential of a cell is the voltage difference between the interior of the cell and the exterior of the cell. The cell's normal membrane potential is 70-90 mV (milliVolts). In a state of illness or disease, the membrane potential is reduced to 30-40 mV. PEMF normalizes cell membrane potentials.
PEMF therapy is similar to charging a battery, which is each and every one of your cells. PEMF stimulates atoms, increases electronic spin, aligns molecules, and generates very small microcurrents that tend to run along nerve pathways. This leads to an increase in intercellular communication, metabolic processes in part due to increased circulation, oxygenation, alkalization, ATP production(the form of energy used by cells to perform work such as running enzymes), and optimized cell membrane potential. As a result, cells regenerate, oxidative stress and inflammation is reduced, immune responses are more robust, the feel-good endorphins are boosted, depleted adrenal and other endocrine gland functions are restored. Healing, rejuvenation, and regeneration. This is the foundation of PEMF therapy.
In summary PEMFs enhance cell membrane permeability and cell membrane potential –leading to:
micro-circulation dilates (through NO)
Blood oxygenation up to 200%
Oxygen and carbon dioxide diffusion
Alkalization ( pH up to 100x)
cellular function and repair
bone healing /tendon repair
range of motion
stamina /endurance/ strength
re-growth of neurological tissue
Inflammation (up to 75% in enzymes)
The FDA only recognizes PEMF applications for bone repair, for which it has been used in the US to treat non-healing fractures since the 1970s. Thousands of University level articles have been published on research and clinical studies of PEMF.
