Excerpts from Power Tools for Health - How PEMFs Help You
by William Pawluk, MD
"Change comes slowly, even with great science. Our hope is that through such solid science and a reservoir of peer-reviewed studies, we can help empower you to take charge of your health. Be your own advocate, and the architect of your own health"
Magnetic Fields affect charged particles, so all the elements or processes of the human body that rely on charge to function can be directly affected by magnetic fields. PEMFs have been found to enhance the function of cell membranes, helping to equalize the charges on either side and revitalizing the cell."
"Treating the body at a chemical level will typically only help at that level or below. However, treating the body at an electromagnetic level will affect the entire body, not only at the electromagnetic level but ultimately into the chemical and tissue levels."
"Some of the most basic actions of PEMFs on the body are involved when dealing with heart conditions. A PEMF stimulus increases nitric oxide productions, which improves calcium ion movement. These processes alone play a large role in the improvements PEMFs have on the heart. Other PEMF actions include positive responses of cardiac muscle, the autonomic nervous system, blood vessels and blood viscosity, vasodilation, and microcirculation, among others. The heart is dynamic, electrically and as a tissue type, and responds readily to an electromagnetic stimulus."
" Yale University School of Medicine studied the use of PEMFs in arthritis, but also found that they could be useful in the treatment of other bone disorders, including osteoporosis." "PEMFs penetrate bones without any blockage or absorption, meaning they can stimulate the entire volume of the bone in ways that beat almost any other approach".
" PEMF Therapy has positive effects on calming the brain and on regulating circadian rhythms which have an important role in controlling sleep patterns and cycles. One four week-week study with 100 people with insomnia found 90% were helped by PEMF therapy "
" PEMFs can't make tissues do anything they aren't natually capable of doing anyway. Higher intensity and more time do not always get the job done faster or better. Finding the right balance of time and intensity becomes the determining factor in the success and timing of healing. It's preferable to do daily treatments with your system as opposed to infrequent treatments".
"Magnetic Therapy should be applied as soon as possible after a problem begins. PEMFs can influence acute issues more rapidly than chronic or pathological problems. Consistent use provides the best results."
When using PEMF therapy, it is important to maintain the proper levels of magnesium in the body. Magnetic fields cause a great deal of ion motion in the body, especially calcium ions. Magnesium is what calcium latches on to as it moves in and out of the cell, so a magnesium deficiency may undermine the value of the magnetic field treatment."
Based on a plethora of clinical research, both with the express intention of determining safety, and the thousands of studies done
otherwise, magnetic field exposure has shown no important adverse side effects. PEMFs of wide ranges of intensity and treatment times are safe, regardless of the area of the body being treated, or the gender or age of the patient. Even pets and other animals do not appear to have issues. Of course, there are contraindications and a small fraction of people may experience unpleasant reactions. Unelss expressly stated as a caution or contraindication, such reactions are little more than disagreeable and can be reversed with a protocol adjustment."
