Since cellular reaction takes place in every body, magnetic fields are not condition specific. As a result, PEMF therapy can be used to assist with the majority of conditions.
As far back as 1890, the American Electro-Therapeutic Association conducted annual conferences on the therapeutic us of electricity and electrical devices by physicians on ailing patients. Today, Pulsing Electro-Magnetic therapy is approved by the FDA to promote the healing of non-healing bone unions.
The human body is extremely complex and wonderfully made. Everybody knows that the body needs the nutrients in food as well as water, oxygen in the air we breathe along with adequate sleep. Most of us, however, don’t realize that life cannot be sustained without the magnetic forces that surround us and permeate our body. Disturbances in these magnetic forces are resulting in pain, sickness and disease and we are pleased to announce that we have Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy available in the clinic, a tool that can greatly improve the quality of your life.
What is PEMF Therapy?
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy is a revolutionary approach that produces healing at the cellular level. Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy bathes the cells of the body with the electro-magnetic frequencies of health. Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy creates bio-currents, which improve the flow of blood and oxygen to the tissues and the flow of ions and nutrients into the cells. It puts energy back into the body by exciting the mitochondria (the cells’ power producers) and the extra energy produced will be stored in the body from 4 hours to 10 days, enabling your body to use it as it needs it.
Over the past 40 years scientists from around the world have investigated the effects of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy (PEMF) on nearly every organ and every disease in the body, resulting in over 2,000 published clinical studies, which show the many benefits provided by PEMF. In addition there are many years of practical experience by thousands of physicians.
How PEMF Therapy Works
The explanation of a very complex process will be made as easy to understand as possible:
The earth has magnetic North and South poles and an invisible magnetic field that surrounds the earth and permeates the atmosphere.
The earth’s invisible magnetic field is everywhere, it saturates the space we live in and it powers metabolism in the human body. The human body is electro-magnetic in nature. The body is driven by a nervous system powered by electricity and magnetism. These two forces produce electro-magnetism, the fundamental energy of the human body and the force that enables the trillions of cells within the body to perform the functions they were designed for.
The body contains about 100 trillion cells and each of them depends on the flow of ions, or energy, in and out of the cell. This dance of electromagnetic energy governs cellular energy production which in turn allows the organs in the body to orchestrate the complex wonder in our body we call life. Life and metabolism cannot be sustained without the earth’s magnetic field. This magnetic field is growing weaker with time, resulting in a lowering of magnetic potential within the cells of the body. The electrical and electronic pollution we are exposed to in the world today lowers magnetic potential within the cells of the body to an even greater degree.
The result is greatly reduced cellular ‘trans-membrane potential’ or TMP. Every cell in the body is a tiny battery with a trans-membrane potential, or TMP, which is a measurement of the electrical charge of the cell. In order for a cell to bring nourishment in, and let metabolic waste out, the cell membrane potential needs to be fully charged. Poor nutrition, together with chemical and electrical pollution, causes damaged and diseased cells to have abnormally low TMP, up to 80% lower than healthy cells. This results in greatly reduced metabolism and in particular, impairment of the sodium-potassium pump that moves waste products out of cells, and nourishment into cells. Impaired sodium-potassium pump activity causes unhealthy, inefficient and ‘clogged-up’ cells which results in edema (cellular water accumulation) and a tendency toward fermentation within cells, a condition known to result in a host of chronic degenerative disease conditions, including cancer.
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy improves trans-membrane potential and increases the circulation across cell membranes, causing the intracellular sodium/potassium exchange to take place more efficiently. Toxins are moved out of cells faster, and nutrients are quickly moved into cells. PEMF helps to ‘unclog’ cells and helps to restore normal cell metabolism and cell healing. Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy ‘recharges’ the cells of your body like you would recharge a battery that’s run down. Notice improvement in just one therapy session.

The Benefits of PEMF Therapy
Here are few of the benefits provided by Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy:
Stimulates pain relieving endorphins
Reduces the enzymes that create inflammation by up to 75%
Improves cell hydration, or water content
Improves circulation by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries
Repairs torn tendons and fractured bones
Causes the pH to become more alkaline, allowing for better oxygen uptake
Increases cellular oxygen absorption up to 200%
Improves ion exchange at the cell membrane, thereby increasing oxygen utilization for damaged or diseased tissues
Repairs damaged and diseased tissue
Works as a catalyst to increase bone density and muscle mass
Reduces pain, swelling and inflammation
Improves calcium transport and absorption in bones and cartilage in joints
Improves energy, or ATP production, in cells
Enhances the synthesis of proteins in cells, restoring intracellular bioenergetics
Stimulates the mood improving neurotransmitter Serotonin
Helps the cells and organs to detoxify and release toxic chemicals and heavy metals.
PEMF and Cancer
The cellular conditions that allow renegade cancer cells to grow are in some ways similar to the painful inflammation and swelling of muscles and joint pain, but more complicated because of the primitive metabolism of cancer cells. Every cell in the body is a tiny battery with a ‘trans-membrane potential’, or TMP, which is a measurement of the electrical charge of the cell. In order for a cell to bring nourishment in and let metabolic waste out, the cell membrane potential needs to be fully charged.
In 1937, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi won the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells obtain energy for growth from anaerobic or fermentative metabolism — using sugar without oxygen. Actually, cancer cells cannot grow in the presence of oxygen. In fact, many cancer therapies focus on re-establishing oxygen based metabolism within cancer cells which will cause them to undergo programmed cell death, or apoptosis. Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy improves the trans-membrane potential of cancer cells, helping them to activate aerobic metabolism as well as reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and increase cellular oxygen absorption by up to 200%.
“A wide variety of challenging musculoskeletal disorders have been treated successfully over the past two decades. These include nerve repair, wound healing, graft behavior, diabetes, and myocardial and cerebral ischemia (heart attack and stroke), among other conditions. Preliminary data even suggest possible benefits in controlling malignancy. (Cancer)”
