How Does Magnetic Therapy Work?

How does magnetic therapy work, you ask? First, the full name of the therapy is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field thereapy, or PEMF for short. Before explaining how PEMF treatments work, let's define the problem.

The Problem

Imagine trying to listen to a radio station that is not quite tuned in. the "message" is garbled and blurred by static. While some of the message may come through in parts, it is sporadic and inconsistent.

Your body's ability to communicate with itself is no different. Being out of sync with the singular magnetic phase we are all born with can cause fatigue, irritability and digestive issues.  This makes the body susceptible to chronic disease.

Singular Magnetic Phase

When we are born, our body exists in a singular magnetic phase. As we mature and age, this phase is bombarded, interrupted and infringed upon by many outside sources.  These range from electronics, atmospheric boundaries, computers, cell phones as well as everyday pollutants and toxins.

When our bodies encounter this interference, it becomes out of tune or out of sync with the singular magnetic phase.  This cause dis-ease and the body is no longer able to maintain itself at optimum levels.

PEMF stimulates autophagy, a process of removing sick and dying cells.  The people who have the most sickness or injury will benefit most from PEMF therapy.

How Does Magnetic Therapy Work?

Science teaches us that everything is energy, is always dynamic and has a frequency. All energy is electro-magnetic by nature - all atoms, chemicals and cells produce EMF's.

Every organ in the body produces it's own bio-electromagnetic field and all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange. When the electromagnetic activity of the body ceases, life ceases.

When an injury occurs and tissue is damaged, positively charged ion within the body move to the affected area, causing pain and swelling. For healing to take place, the injured site must be restored to its natural negative electromagnetic charge. Pain and inflammation must be removed and oxygen and nutrients transferred to this area.

The application of a magnetic field to an injured or dis-eased area helps restore the normal electromagnetic balance. While using a magnetic healing therapy device, the magnetic field relaxes capillary walls and surrounding muscle and connective tissues, allowing for increased blood flow and nutrients to the injured or dis-eased site promoting accelerated healing.

What does PEMF do?

Many have experienced directly and studies have shown that over the past 30 years, PEMF:

  • Increases cellular oxygen absorption and cellular energy
  • Promotes faster healing of injuries
  • Increases blood and fluid circulation
  • Repairs torn tendons and fractured bones and accelerates tissue repair
  • Reduces all types of pain
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Works as a catalyst to increase bone density and muscle mass
  • Opens the cells thru electroproration, allowing for detoxification
  • Improves cell hydration
  • Improves degenerative nerves and tissues
  • Helps in reducing blood pressure
  • Restores cell membrane integrity
  • Stimulates endomorphin and serotonin release in the brain to improve depression/anxiety
  • Heals fractures and improves osteoporosis
  • Stimulate stem cells

Is Magnetic Therapy Safe?

Along with the question "How does magnetic therapy work?", one must also ask the question "Is it safe?" The answer is yes. PEMF therapy is safe. No complications have ever been reported with its proper use. There are certain conditions where magnetic therapy should not be used, such as having an implanted electro-medical device like a pacemaker.  It should also be avoided if one is pregnant. The FDA has approved PEMF for certain medical conditions. (See Magnetic Healing Therapy)

How Much Therapy Will Make a Difference?

Because PEMF devices vary in intensity, the answer depends on the machine you are using.

Medical grade PEMF devices can be found and used at chiropractic offices, wellness centers and many other locations that believe in a natural health approach. Assuming you choose a medical grade device - one that generate 19,200 gallops per pulse and frequencies as high at 30-Hz, then relief can be experienced in as little as 10 minutes.

Because a medical grade PEMF device dispels errant fields from the human body, with a single 10 minute session the body begins to return to the singular magnetic phase.  It initiates the process of functioning at optimum levels.  Depending on the injury or dis-ease, more than one session may be needed to create lasting relief. In addition, individual cells can encounter up to a 200% increase in oxygen content. This in turn produces an increase in function, alleviates pain, promotes healing and invigorates the body with energy and focus.

Chronic Pain

If you have been experience chronic pain or have any of the following conditions, magnetic therapy may be the answer for which you have been looking.

  • Stress
  • Anciety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Chest Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Osteoporosis
  • Surgery Pain
  • Tension
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Neuropathy
  • Sports Injury
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Inflammation
  • Parkinson's
  • Alzheimer's
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Stroke Victims
  • Migraines
  • Tinnitus

How does magnetic therapy work?  Quite well is the simple answer.
