What are electromagnetic fields? What are PEMFs? How does it affect my body?
Electromagnetic fields exist everywhere in our environment but we cannot see them. The earth’s magnetic field is what makes a compass point north. These fields can be natural or man-made. Everything from x-rays and power outlets to radio, TV and telephone antennas produce electromagnetic fields. Some of these electromagnetic fields can cause damage to the body. It is important to distinguish the difference between the electromagnetic fields that are used for therapeutic purposes and those that exist within our man-made environment that can be harmful to us.
PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields. They are used to improve circulation and metabolism of the cells. A pulsed electromagnetic field is very dynamic and can penetrate through the body and have a positive effect of the cells.
An electromagnetic field affects us because our bodies are electric! With every heart beat we are creating electromagnetic pulses that stimulate cellular activity. This causes a reaction with all of our 70 trillion cells affecting the basic function of the molecules and tissues, not only in humans but animals and plants as well.
What are the benefits of a PEMF on my body?
Improved Circulation – Magnetic fields are very effective in increasing circulation. When a cell is damaged or sick, it will not hold its ideal charge. This causes them to cling together slowing our circulation. The magnetic field helps the membrane of the cell to become properly charged so it can function optimally. PEMF’s increase some of the chemicals in the wall of the blood vessels causing them to dilate thereby improving the circulation of the blood flowing through the vessels and increasing the amount of oxygen going to the tissues. Poor circulation creates an atmosphere for disease, while improving circulation helps the tissues to promote healing and regeneration resulting in reduction of swelling and injury.
Improved Muscle Function – Our muscles can work harder and longer with properly charged cells. They can contract and relax and recover better from tension and spasms which helps to reduce or eliminate pain.
Decreased Inflammation – Inflammation is your body’s response to infection or illness. While it is necessary and beneficial, it often persists longer than necessary causing chronic inflammation which results in pain. PEMF’s can help reduce chronic and damaging inflammation while positively affecting the flow of useful enzymes through the cell membranes.
Reduced Stress – Stress is a normal human response but too much can be harmful and accelerate aging. 65% of our illnesses are caused by stress and if not managed will accumulate over time. PEMF’s help to reduce the negative effect that stress has on our body.
Healing of Bones – Because they can pass through the body including the bones, PEMF’s can help repair bones damaged by injury, disease or surgery and can help regenerate bone lost from osteoporosis and osteopenia.
Blood Oxygenation – Adequate oxygen is necessary for proper cell function. Oxygen is extracted from the air we breathe and delivered to the body and the organs through the blood in our arteries. It is used for all our cell functions. The veins then carry the deoxygenated blood back to the heart to be recycled. PEMF’s help to improve oxygen levels in the body.
