PEMF health benefits.
Joint and muscle pain
Stress relief ...and others
The list of health conditions that have been studied using PEMF therapy is extensive and much of that research has been applied to the development of the Sedona Pro PEMF product. Pulsed electromagnetic field mats have become a more commonly used device in the last 5 years, and studies have shown that it has been a welcome change for those who are unable to find relief from other therapies. We also have seen good success with people that have challenges using the NES Infoceuticals.
Many who suffer from pain in multiple areas find that they get great relief by using the full body PEMF mat. Individuals may experience different results with PEMF therapy. Some report that they notice a difference after their first session. Others have reported results within as little as a few days to a few weeks or longer. It is best to be patient. Your body deserves it!
REDUCTION IN INFLAMMATION
Inflammation is a body’s natural response in self-protection. Our white blood cells protect us from infection, such as bacteria and viruses. Although, the immune system may also trigger an inflammatory response when bacteria and viruses aren’t present. This is referred to as an autoimmune response. There are a number of autoimmune diseases, in which the immune system harms itself. Whatever the cause of your inflammation, one of the top 10 health benefits of PEMF therapy is without a doubt its ability to re-energize damaged cells and reduce inflammation and increase range of motion. PEMF therapy works on a cellular level to encourage the body to heal itself.
One of the most basic effects magnetic fields have on the body is increased circulation, not by increasing heartbeat or blood pressure, but by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries. When a cell (such as a red blood cell) does not hold its ideal charge, the red blood cells can “stick” together and stack like coins, which is called the 'Rouleau' effect. This effect inhibits proper cell oxygenation to the cells because the red blood cells do not circulate well enough to deliver oxygen where it is needed.
There is a simple explanation why the 'Rouleau' effect occurs, and it is related to voltage. When your cellular voltage is low the positive charge on the outside of the cell is diminished, which allows the cells to stick together. When a magnetic field passes through the cell, the membrane becomes properly charged, allowing the cell to repel itself and keep separate from other cells, thereby increasing circulation. Good circulation helps tissues with cellular function (get the nutrition they need, while expelling the waste they produce), nutrition, healing, and regeneration. Poor circulation makes tissues unhealthy and prone to disease and breakdown.
IMPROVED BLOOD OXYGENATION
Just as a fire cannot burn without oxygen, our cells cannot produce heat and energy without oxygen. PEMF helps with the process of extracting oxygen out of the air we breathe and helps it to be better transported into circulation. The absorbed oxygen is then transported through the body to all the cells, where it is absorbed into the individual cells. Proper blood oxygen levels at the cell level (not just in the blood) allow this process to continue quickly and efficiently.
ENHANCED MUSCLE FUNCTION
Muscle energy production improves following PEMF therapy sessions. This allows muscles to work harder and longer, and recover more quickly from their work. PEMFs maximize growth factors by increasing nitric oxide production effectively reducing exercised induced inflammation and improving vascular function.
For anyone trying to improve strength and muscles size, PEMF can help maximize that process. This would apply if you are in your later years treating sarcopenia (the medical term for muscle loss and weakness). It would also apply if you are just trying to recover from hard workouts to add lean muscle. Not only can PEMF help muscles recover faster, it also helps your entire nervous system recover faster as well. Faster recovery means better performance.
INJURY RECOVERY & WOUND HEALING
PEMF therapy enhances the oxygenation of the blood flow through the body. This really helps the body to heal itself. On average the healing process is increased by about a third of the time it would normally take without use of PEMF therapy.
PEMF encourages the body to create micro-currents that run through neuro-pathways. This response denies C fibers from accessing neural gateways that trigger the pain response. PEMF has been shown to provide long-lasting, immediate pain relief within just a few minutes of the initial session to those suffering from chronic or acute pain. The ways by which PEMF relieves pain include pain blocking, decreasing inflammation, increasing cellular flexibility, increasing blood and lymph circulation, and increasing tissue oxygenation.
SLEEP AND STRESS REDUCTION
If you struggle with insomnia, restless fitful sleep, or are stressed, PEMF therapy may benefit you. Stress is responsible for at least 65% of our illnesses, so stress reduction is necessary for all of us. Stress-reducing activities performed only now and then will allow too much stress-related damage to accumulate over time. PEMF has stress-reducing effects. Regular use of PEMF can help to reduce the negative effects natural stresses have on our bodies. There is an apparent relaxing of the vascular system within minutes of completing a PEMF therapy session, which lowers the heart rate and can drop blood pressure by 20% to 30%.
PEMF therapy encourages muscles to relax, decreases stress levels and promotes deeper natural sleep.
DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
PEMF therapy may be a great complementary modality to address depression and anxiety. A recent Harvard study utilized PEMF to treat depression with great results. The findings showed that along with better oxygenated blood, PEMF helped the glucose metabolism areas of the brain that contribute to depression and anxiety. PEMF stimulates the electrical activity of neurons which then change the parts of the brain that affect our mood. PEMF therapy may also decrease the fear and anxiety reactions that are associated with depression.
BONE MENDING & WOUND HEALING
PEMF therapy improves the quality of calcium produced and mends bones in one-third of the normal time. The skin of the bone seems to develop cells more like the DNA dictates. PEMFs work to repair bones, whether damaged by surgery, injury, or disease and have been found to improve bone regeneration such as occurs with osteoporosis and osteopenia, among other bone destroying conditions.
Because PEMF supports cellular health, damaged tissue and wounds generally heal much faster, in one-third to one-half the time with less scarring.
Energy loss from stress and environmental pollution compounded by dietary setbacks drain us of vital energy that keeps us healthy. When this energy is compromised, cells no longer function at their best. This triggers a chain reaction, poor circulation, premature aging, degenerative disease, illness, injury and/or poor performance.
To help the body maintain its natural state, we need to recharge our cells batteries so they can be their best and keep us performing at ours. PEMF therapy may help recharge our cells energy and thereby help restore our bodies self-healing abilities.
PEMF promotes detoxification.
