PEMF therapy is more commonly used in Europe to treat many ailments, including cancer. Although only two clinical studies have used PEMF therapy for cancer treatment, these studies show that PEMF therapy is safe and promising compared to other available cancer therapies. PEMFs could be used not only as primary therapy but also in combination with other common antineoplastic therapies. Given that new portable and affordable PEMF devices are increasingly available on the market, future controlled clinical studies are expected to further determine the potential of PEMF therapy in conventional oncology.
This entire range of effects because your cells and their mitochondria get an electronic “tune up” each night from the long duration exposure to these very-weak, frequency-specific pulsed electromagnetic fields. The mitochondria respond by improving cell respiration i.e. oxygen metabolism. See our 10 Hz citations to learn about the mechanism; beginning with a 2 & 3 fold increase of the two key enzymes required for oxygen transport into and inside the mitochondria. Hood 1998.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEFM) Therapy is not a disease-specific therapy. Its effect on the microcirculation and the resulting improvements to the supply and removal of substances to/from the body’s cells allows these cells to produce and supply increasing amounts of energy and therefore in turn carry out their tasks (production) better. This “production increase” and the resulting increased supply to cell products allow the body to reactivate its control cycles, meaning that the body helps itself and can promote the healing process.
In all advanced organisms, blood circulation regulates the nourishment of cells with oxygen and nutrients, the removal of waste products, vital information about hormones and chemical messengers, immune defenses and many other processes. The performance and functionality of every individual body cell and of muscles, joints, organs, glands and the immune system etc. depend on the optimal supply and removal by means of microcirculation.
Besides their well-known side effects like addiction and toxicity, most modern remedies for pain can only soothe pain temporarily and are ineffective for the treatment chronic pain; the underlying condition causing pain has to be resolved. Ground breaking achievements in the field of Biomagnetics seem to be paving the way for the emergence of more tenacious way to manage and reduce pain in the form of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) and heal the underlying condition at the same time.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields have always existed, in fact the Earth is constantly generating one, in basis, we are always exposed to a pulsating field of electromagnetic energy. However, due to the broad spectrum of other Electromagnetic Fields that currently inhabit the air; the effects of the PEMF are lost in so much “Static Electromagnetic energy”. For a large amount of human history, we were unaware of the benefits this PEMF was generating, the realization dawned on scientists after the first few successful space missions due to the effects that extended time in space were having on astronauts.
This is just a short list of the benefits PEMF therapy has based on a small sample of the numerous studies performed. The list of all the benefits would take up pages and the list is every growing as new studies are finding more positive applications for PEMF therapy. Basically PEMF therapy shows the ability to aid the body in all cellular functions relating to repair, regeneration and correcting cellular operations.
Nonhealing episternal abscess wound in an elderly male following cardiac surgery. A, The open cardiac wound is seen following drainage of abscess and start of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). B, Wound closure is shown 8 weeks after 30-minute PEMF treatments twice daily. Patient was cared for in a hospital for 1 week and was then transferred to a nursing home with a portable PEMF unit until complete healing occurred.
Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) has been shown to have significant beneficial skeletal effects. Ultrasound refers to a high-frequency nonaudible acoustic energy that travels in the form of longitudinal mechanical waves. Traditionally used by physical therapists to intervene in injuries to soft tissues, it is most commonly used with intensity in the range of 0.5–2.0 W/cm2. In comparison, to intervene in injuries to hard tissues (such as bone) pulsed-wave ultrasound with a spatially averaged, temporally averaged intensity (ISATA) of below 0.1 W/cm2 is preferred. ISATA refers to the average ultrasound power over the area of the ultrasound beam (spatial-average) and the average of this intensity over a complete pulse cycle (ultrasound ‘on’ and ‘off’ period; temporal average). Pulsed-wave ultrasound with an ISATA below 0.1 W/cm2 is termed LIPUS and is preferred in the intervention of fracture healing, as its low ISATA significantly reduces the risk of any thermal or cavitational tissue damage—LIPUS has US Food and Drug Administration approval to be applied to bone.
I purchased my first PEMF device in August of the year 2000 from a friend in Austria after having browsed Dr Thuile's book 'Practice of Magnetic Field Therapy' with its many positive testimonials from MD's and patients alike covering a host of diseases from tumours, metabolic, eye, ear, nose and throat to insomnia relief, pain relief, allergies, and bone fractures, just to mention some of them!
En formation initiale : Outre le tutorat des fonctionnaires stagiaires et l’accompagnement des étudiants en stage (stages d’observation, stages de pratique accompagnée), les PEMF devront intervenir prioritairement dans les ESPE, au sein d’équipes pluri-professionnelles. Ils seront aussi amenés à accompagner les stagiaires en M2, dans leur travail de recherche, dans le cadre du mémoire professionnel et à participer à des dispositifs de recherche-action initiés dans les ESPE.
There have been thousands of scientific studies on the effects of PEMF Devices. PEMF accelerates the healing of: soft tissue injuries, inflammatory joints, delayed and non-union fractures, and improves circulation and cellular metabolism. PEMF THERAPY is used in some clinics for the following conditions: Acid burns, Arthritis, Asthma, Bone fractures, Burns, Coronary disease, Depression, Eye disease, Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Infections, Inflammation, Insomnia, Leg edema, Liver problems, Lumbago, Menopause complaints, Migraine headache, Muscular atrophy, Muscular cramps, Nephritis, Nephroses, Neuralgia, Osteoporoses, Period cramps, Pigmentation, Poor circulation, Post – operative pains, Psoriosis, Rheumatism, Sexual disturbances, Skin problems, Tennis elbow, Tinnitus, Tooth extraction, Ulcus cruris, Wound healing.
Successful studies typically use frequencies between 1-100 hz and with some very specific applications up to 1000 Hz have been used. Our Earth's natural environment and occurring magnetic field's though is what we humans have evolved with and we require. This is the best indicator of suitable PEMF frequency to bring back the body into it's natural state. The primary Schumann resonance would have the most effect although the other resonance points would also have an effect.
The primary function of our magnetic fields in the body is to naturally increase circulation by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries. When PEMF Therapy is used, a magnetic pulse passes through the cell which enables the membrane to become charged. The cells then separate from each other which helps to promote proper circulation and an increase in cellular oxygen.
I know many people with PD have similar problems around food, digestion and medication ineffectiveness. The reason for this, I believe, is in the role of the primitive Dorsal (Vegetative) branch of the Vagus Nerve in digestion, the specific part of the Nervous System also responsible for immobization/freeze responses in humans. Essentially, when a lot of food hits the digestive tract, this can send the enteric nervous system of people with PD into shock, activating the Dorsal Vagus, but in a way which then also inhibits the Ventral (Smart) Vagus Branch responsible for relaxed digestion. This enteric stress therefore results in increased motor symptoms. See
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) uses electrical and magnetic fields to address a variety of health issues. Cancer is seldom found isolated from other conditions; many of our patients have multiple diagnoses, coupled with their cancer challenge. PEMF alleviates the pain, inflammation, and circulation issues associated with many of these conditions, allowing it to influence the outcome of cancer therapy protocol, both directly and indirectly.
IUFM : L'IUFM, ou Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres, est un établissement d'enseignement supérieur chargé de la formation des enseignants. Pour le premier degré, il accueille des étudiants qui préparent le concours de professeur des écoles (PE1) et des fonctionnaires lauréats du concours de recrutement en formation par alternance (PE2).
Common shoulder problems that can cause pain are strain or tendinopathy of the rotator cuff (supraspinatus, subscapularis, infraspinatus and teres minor), glenoid labral tear, glenohumeral instability or dislocation, acromioclavicular sprain and/or fractured distal end of the clavicle, and muscle strain or tear of the pectoralis major or long head of the biceps. Other common causes of shoulder pain can be based on referred pain from the cervical or thoracic spine, or pathology of the brachial plexus.
Recently I published the first new feature article for PainScience.com in quite a while: Zapped! Does TENS work for pain? The peculiar popularity of being gently zapped with electrical stimulation therapy. I’ve now added an interesting new section to it about pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). It’s amazingly positive, and inspired by some fresh science …
PRP injections are being utilized for partial rotator cuff tears. There are mixed results in the literature. A randomized controlled trial (level I evidence) with a 1-year follow-up demonstrated no benefit from a single PRP injection in comparison with placebo (Kesikburun et al, 2013). Biologic type injections may have a role in the treatment of partial rotator cuff tears; however, the exact platelet count and leukocyte concentration in PRP for optimal growth factor activity has yet to be definitively proven in the literature.
While the researchers ultimately recommended that more research be conducted on this particular treatment method to be able to clearly say that it is effective for a variety of different health conditions, they also noted that“ Acute adverse effects have not been reported.” This was after reviewing 11 PEMF studies in total,each of which had anywhere from 12 to 71 participants.
PEMF is clearly kin to TENS, part of the electrotherapy family. And yet it’s a different beast, much more exotic, with a more mysterious mechanism of action. PEMF is hypothesized to directly stimulate cellular repair, and not for nothing: it seems to really do that, and the effect is almost magical, speeding up bone fracture healing, and even restoring it in cases where healing has failed completely.

What’s more is that, PEMF treatment is pulsed and brief, so you don’t have extended exposure like you would sitting under a cell phone tower all day. Most PEMF treatments last 10-20 minutes and deliver short bursts the whole time, instead of constant exposure. So, you can get all of the benefits of PEMF without the negative effects that come with man-made EMF sources like electronics.
Circonscription : Une circonscription regroupe une partie des écoles d'un département. Sa gestion est confiée à un Inspecteur de l'Education Nationale (IEN) qui est assisté dans les tâches de formation du personnel par des conseillers pédagogiques. Un département rural est généralement divisé en 4 à 6 circonscriptions alors qu'un département fortement peuplé peut en compter plus d'une dizaine.
