Last week we learned that PEMF stands for:

Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field

We also discussed how everything in the world is energy, including us. So what does that mean exactly and how and why does this thing work?

For a better and clearer understanding on the science behind PEMF and why it works, let’s look at the entire spectrum of frequencies of electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) and some of the more well-known devices that use them. On the extreme end, there are devices such as x-rays, satellites and even your wireless headsets that register frequencies over the quintillion Hz range. In the mid-range, there are devices such as microwaves which register frequencies in the 10 billion Hz range.

We know the devices mentioned above can have a serious impact on cells, cardiac rhythms and even your DNA. We’ve all heard the horror stories of brain tumors from cell phone use and we know everyone having an x-ray room must wear a protective cover because of the serious consequences that can be had.

But…just as with anything in nature and our world, there is a positive to counter the negative.

This is where the science of PEMF therapy comes in. Its energy pulses penetrate and stimulate the cells within the body to promote regeneration and healing. PEMF expert Dr. Gary Ryan states “Based on a lot of research that was done at Yale, it is apparent that just about any pathology in the body is preceded by a drop in cell charge. Now we have technology that will reach down to the level of a cell that has lost charge and, due to the high intensity of the pulse, bring that pulse back to normal or a more normal situation, which allows it to replicate and produce a more
normal cell.”

PEMF machines emit pulsed, therapeutic, low range, frequencies that mimic those you would find in nature. These range from 5 – 30 Hz. To give some perspective, that is less than is emitted from a thunderstorm. I like to think of the frequencies of the PEMF machine as being my conduit to becoming one with the energy of the
earth…literally. For more on how they work check out the work of a former professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Dr. William Pawluk.

Until next week.
