What Is PEMF?


You may have heard about PEMF therapy on the news or in a magazine. You may have even heard that NASA uses PEMF therapy to reduce or slow the process of bone loss and muscle atrophy. But what is it, really? How does it work? Read along to learn the details and which conditions Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy can treat. 

How the Body Works

To understand how PEMF therapy works, you must have a general idea of how the body works.

The entire body is composed of cells. Think of these cells as batteries; they can be charged and depleted. Healthy cells contain positive and negative magnetic charges. These magnetic charges require ion exchange to carry chemical particles such as sodium and potassium throughout the body. These elements are essential for the body to function properly. Without an electromagnetic interaction between cells, the body would do absolutely nothing. This is why a “flatline” on an EKG machine indicates death; there is no electromagnetic activity in the heart. 

Cells start to deteriorate and get damaged over time. This causes a decline in the cell’s ability to exchange ions. Furthermore, germs can invade a vulnerable cell easily and cause infection. 

These same cells come together to form tissues, and tissues come together to form organs. Therefore, when cellular function is healthy, organs are also healthy and maintained, optimizing the whole body to function better. 

These three fundamental symptoms are associated with weak or damaged cells:

  • Pain – a warning sign for damaged cells.
  • Inflammation – this is essentially the first process that happens when anything in the body goes awry.  
  • Fatigue – many weak cells cause a fatigued body as a whole. 

These symptoms are seen in many diseases, from the Flu to Rheumatoid Arthritis. Therefore, PEMF therapy can treat various conditions as well as optimize natural body functions. 

Let’s get into how it works, shall we? 

How Does PEMF Therapy Work?

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy generates energy at the cellular level using non-invasive procedures. It is a pain-relief alternative treatment that accelerates healing for a variety of physical ailments and injuries. Essentially, PEMF therapy promotes regeneration of the cells, resulting in better overall body performance. 

PEMF technology emits an electromagnetic field through a copper coil at different frequencies. This technology is incorporated into several devices that stimulate the body’s natural recovery process. Waves that the PEMF device creates have a low frequency, similar to electromagnetic waves found in nature. Earth’s vibrational frequency resonates at 7.8Hz and 10Hz, also called the Schumann Resonance. These are typically the same frequencies incorporated into PEMF technology. 

PEMF’s completely penetrate through the body and target the affected cells, restoring healthy electromagnetic charges.

Studies show that the uptake of oxygen into muscles is increased by at least 1% with PEMF therapy, considerably improving overall endurance and performance.

Although PEMF technology may seem like a novel discovery, it has safely and effectively been used across America and Europe for over five decades. 

What is PEMF Used For?

PEMF therapy can help with various diseases, disorders, injuries, and diseases. It is not used to treat one particular condition. Instead, the technology works as an optimizer for the body’s natural functions. However, let’s get a tad more specific and look at certain ailments PEMF therapy is used for. 

Pain and Inflammation

As mentioned above, PEMF’s accelerate the healing process, reducing pain, and promoting range of motion. Some of the most common conditions associated with chronic pain are:

  • Back pain
  • Arthritis pain
  • Cancer pain 
  • Neurogenic pain

Another common type of pain is caused by injuries or postsurgical pain after an injury. PEMF therapy gently triggers the production of heat stress proteins that not only prevent the breakdown of cells but also accelerate healing from an injury. Common injuries that PEMF’s can help with are:

  • Muscle strains/sprains
  • Bruises
  • Leg and arm fractures
  • Typical recovery in athletes between workouts
Sleep Management

Evidence shows that PEMF therapy helps individuals with sleeping difficulties. The miraculous treatment allows for falling asleep quicker and staying asleep. Here’s how, PEMF’s:

  • Stimulate the pineal gland to produce Melatonin – a hormone responsible for the sleep cycle.
  • Facilitate the release of Human Growth Hormone (HGH), another essential hormone for deep sleep.
  • Promote deep sleep by relaxing the body and the mind, recharging the body, and providing individuals an increased amount of energy throughout the day. 
Mental Clarity and Focus

Research shows that PEMF therapy can have a positive impact on brain health and neuro-wellness. It can help fight against brain fog commonly seen in modern society. This typical brain fog may result in a decline in cognitive functioning and lead to: 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress 

PEMF’s have an anti-inflammatory effect on the brain, providing mental and cognitive performance enhancement….giving you a boost of serenity. By enhancing cellular respiration, PEMF technology balances hormones that include:

Serotonin – Also called the “happy hormone,” serotonin is a mood stabilizer. It is a chemical that nerve cells produce and helps to: 

  • Reduce depression
  • Regulate anxiety 
  • Promote wound healing
  • Maintain bone tissue

Dopamine – A neurotransmitter that plays a role in how we feel pleasure. Dopamine affects overall behavior and body functions such as:

  • Heart rate regulation
  • Learning
  • Mood stabilizer
  • Sleep patterns

Cortisol – Also called the “stress hormone,” it is your body’s natural alarm system. This hormone fuels the sympathetic nervous system, or the “fight or flight” instincts by:

  • Boosting energy in a stressful situation, such as running from a predator. It then restores balance afterward. 
  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Playing a part in the sleep/wake cycle
  • Increasing blood sugar
Reducing inflammation

According to Dr. William Pawluk, “Pulsed magnetic fields reach deep into the brain and help all layers and areas of the brain without risks or side effects.” 

Feel Better by Expanding Your Consciousness

Now that you understand how Pulsed Electromagnetic Field technology works talk to your doctor and see if this therapy is right for you. Pain is the most profound indication that something is wrong. It is your body’s way of telling you that the body’s natural energy systems, also known as the chakras, are blocked or unbalanced. 

The NeuroWrap Pulse removes these blockages, allowing you to rejuvenate the body at a cellular level. The Pulse helps you establish a connection with your higher self, by supporting the transition into the theta or delta states. Expand your self-awareness with Earth’s natural substances. Turbocharge your cells (batteries) and get to feeling better faster!
