PEMF therapy is based on more than 30 years of worldwide research carried out by renowned scientists and many years of practical experience by thousands of doctors, chiropractors and therapists. Millions of treatments have already been successfully done with Curatron PEMF systems, in more than 80 countries worldwide, improving dramatically the quality of life for numerous people!
Because we are partial to Bayesian analysis here at SBM, we like to consider both plausibility and clinical evidence. There is almost no plausibility to the claims being made by EMP Pad. Low power electromagnetic fields have never been shown to have clinically significant effects on animals or people. There is no way to magically “heal” cells or make them live longer, or affect overall health with simple magnetic fields.
There are 30 trillion cells in our bodies and they all have a life cycle – some are replaced daily, others weekly, others annually, and some only every 7 years. It is important that we ensure new cells are ‘born’ into a healthy tissue. It is equally important that old cells die, as they should. Regular use of a PEMF Mat can help keep the cycle running smoothly. Far infrared waves stimulate and strengthen the body’s nervous, endocrine, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy isn’t typically as well-known as other forms of treatment such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy. Therefore, many people assume that it’s a relatively new remedy, leaving it wide open for speculation when it comes to its positive effects. However, the truth is, PEMF has actually been used to help people live a healthier life for quite a long time.
I was scared. The doctor said, “There is a very large ‘something’ in your abdomen.” My world stopped. I went to my husband’s office next to mine, and I sat down and started crying. I underwent surgery to remove the tumor. It wasn’t until later I learned how important nutrition is. I learned you have to be diligent, but there is something that you can do.
Enseignement transmissif : L'enseignement transmissif, communément associé aux méthodes dites traditionnelles, est une approche de l'enseignement dans laquelle l'élève est récepteur d'un savoir donné par le maître. La séance d'enseignement transmissif commence par la règle qui est donnée "toute faite" par le maître. Une fois la règle expliquée, l'élève exécute des exercices d'application de la règle. L'élève rencontre souvent des difficultés à réutiliser spontanément les règles qu'il a travaillées dans des exercices où il n'avait que cela à penser. C'est pourquoi les méthodes traditionnelles le complétaient par une pratique très régulière de la rédaction et des problèmes de mathématiques concrets.
There are quite a number of PEMF systems available now in the US, for daily in-home use, that can help meet your unique needs. Some are FDA-approved and many more are available over-the counter or from various experienced practitioners. Some whole-body systems have been available in the US for over a decade and have been used in Europe by tens of thousands of people for a wide variety of problems without significant negative effects for over 20 years. One PEMF system has been studied through NIH-supported research at the University of Virginia for Rheumatoid Arthritis. These whole body systems have been used worldwide, not only by health-conscious individuals for health improvement and maintenance, but also by world-class and Olympic athletes for increased endurance, enhanced performance, and faster recovery.
Back in 2002, a pilot study was carried out to objectively assess the effectiveness of EarthPulse. In the study, some 11 patients suffering from chronic pain for more than two years were placed on a PEMF therapy in order to determine how EarthPulse influences sleep patterns and pain reception. After a few months of treatment, 7 of the 11 patients, having been subjectively evaluated by Visual analog pain scales, reported significant alleviation of pain. The report on the study was tremendously positive.
The original PEMF devices consisted of a Helmholtz coil which generated a magnetic field. The patient's body was placed inside the magnetic field to deliver treatment. Today, the majority of PEMF wellness devices resemble a typical yoga mat in dimensions but are slightly thicker to house several flat spiral coils to produce an even electromagnetic field. A frequency generator is then used to energize the coils to create a pulsed electromagnetic field. A wide variety of professional and consumer PEMF devices are sold and marketed as FDA registered wellness devices. The majority are manufactured in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and are imported into North America as electric massagers or full body electric yoga mats. They are either placed on a massage table for clinical use or directly on the floor in the home to practice simple yoga postures. The companies that sell and manufacture them as "general wellness products" are not permitted to make medical claims of effectiveness in treating disease.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, with other less commonly used interventions, was not included in this list, and its evidence for efficacy was therefore not assessed. However, as emphasised by Dr Pfeiffer, an evidence based evaluation of all other interventions would be of interest and could be considered for inclusion in the next round of evidence based guidelines.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy replicates the Earth’s natural magnetic field, which we were once strongly connected to. Over time this magnetic field has gotten weaker (an estimated 10% weaker since the 19th century) and due to industrialization and modernization, we are further separated from the Earth’s natural magnetic field. The therapy actually originated from NASA’s research involving the benefits of pulsed electromagnetic fields on astronauts for fatigue, depression, bone loss and other symptoms following even short trips to outer space. Scientists discovered that the cause was due to astronauts being without this beneficial natural field emanating from our Earth.

We carry a varied line of PEMF therapy products to support the needs of veterinarians to pet owners. All of our PEMF Therapy Systems target tissue to help reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate healing. Dogs and cats can find relief from common conditions such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, muscle, tendon or ligament injuries, fractures, neurological conditions and stiffness and soreness associated with age.
Cold applications diminish the inflammatory condition by acting as vasoconstrictors and reducing metabolic activity.118,119 Cooling also diminishes discomfort associated with the acute shoulder injury by increasing the threshold of pain in stimulated nerve fibers.120,121 Through this cold-induced analgesia, normal shoulder motion can be facilitated.122 Cold therapy can be effective with ice massage for 15 to 20 minutes with the arm positioned in abduction (Fig. 41-8).
Valone said that it was two years short of the 20th century when Tesla reportedly addressed the American Electro-Therapeutic Association, telling its members that “ One of the early observed and remarkable features of the high frequency currents,and one which was chiefly of interest to the physician, was their apparent harmlessness which made it possible to pass relatively great amounts of electrical energy through the body of a person without causing pain or serious discomfort.”
PEMFs have been used extensively for decades for many conditions and medical disciplines, and results can be seen in animals as well as humans. The National Institutes of Health have made PEMFs a priority for research. In fact, many PEMF devices have already been approved by the FDA, some specifically to fuse broken bones, wound healing, pain and tissue swelling, and treat depression. Most therapeutic PEMF devices are considered safe by various standards and organizations.
On the show, world-class pain specialist Dr. James Dillard mentioned electromagnetic portable pads to Dr. Oz. These mats produce a therapeutic pulsed electromagnetic field that can surround the entire body. They are not FDA-approved and are not made in the USA. PEMF mats are primarily advertised and distributed over the Internet, often used without medical supervision. Retail price is $2000 to $3000, and often renting is possible for a weekly rate. There are a dozen different companies that make these devices. Three examples are the Mediconsult iMRS/MRS2000, Medithera Home System, and Quantron Resonance System QRS-101.
“The magnet is brilliant and we are sleeping on Recovery mode all the time now, most obvious thing is the amount of energy we have on waking up and throughout the day; no pushing through the day anymore. Jimena, (whom I recommended), also says the same, she is more than happy with her results too. Wind under load readings very high very quickly also.”
In addition to its benefits on fractures displaying a failed healing response, LIPUS can substantially accelerate the rate of repair of fresh fractures. LIPUS also promotes greater bone content in fracture callus, more rapid endochondral ossification, and quicker recovery of stiffness in ovariectomy-induced osteoporotic, as well as diabetic, rats. In humans, LIPUS can reduce the time for recovery of clinical and radiographic union by 30–38%. This represents a reduction in healing time of 58, 37, and 19 days in tibial diaphyseal, distal radius, and scaphoid fractures, respectively.
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.
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.
It is important to understand that PEMF therapy or any energy medicine device for the matter does not treat disease like a pharmaceutical synthetic drug. What it does is to assist the body so it can heal itself. The body is self-healing, self-regulating and self-regenerating and can heal itself if it is given energy and the right elements needed to sustain life.
PEMF has also shown positive effects with Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s, cancer, heart disease, depression, diabetes, endometriosis, epilepsy, headaches, glaucoma, hepatitis, kidney problems, lung disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s, sexual disorders, sleep disorders, spinal cord injury, stroke, Tourette’s, ulcers, urinary problems, and more.
Diathermy-based RF PEMF has been employed in (1) double-blind clinical studies for chronic wound repair, in which actively treated pressure ulcers closed by 84% versus 40% in sham-treated wounds in one study7 and 60% versus no closure in the control group in another study8; (2) studies showing that a decrease in edema in acute ankle sprains was sevenfold versus the control group9,10; (3) studies showing a pain decrease in acute whiplash injuries of 50% and a range of motion increase of 75% in treated versus control patients11,12; (4) skin microvascular blood flow studies, in which blood flow was enhanced by about 30% in both healthy13 and diabetic14 individuals; and (5) studies in which postmastectomy lymphedema was reduced by 56% and skin blood flow increased fourfold.15
Speaking of how you may feel when receiving PEMF therapy, most people claim to feel nothing, however do not be surprised if you feel a slight tingling sensation from the electrical static produced by the PEMF. Others have claimed that whilst receiving PEMF treatment they experienced stress relief as the treatment progressed, so if you are a highly stressed individual (like myself) this may just be the thing for you.
After conducting in-person interviews of more than 23,000 American adults, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (in conjunction with the National Center for Health Statistics) found that almost 40 percent of those surveyed used some type of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in an effort to obtain and retain a higher level of health.1
Is your approach being embraced by the professionals researching the rehab/recovery work? I would be really interested to hear more. You may be interested in the work of Body Intelligence/biodynamic craniosacral therapy, Pain is Really Strange (FB and blog site) - although name implies about pain, it's that full mix of what you have been exploring yourself (Steve Haines, craniosacral therapist).
While in the past people relied solely on the information and education of their doctor, today’s consumers hold the power of the internet to educate themselves and access beneficial information outside of their doctors scope of knowledge. Today’s health-focused consumers now have the ability to empower themselves with accurate, up-to-date information so they can determine which health devices are worthwhile and helpful, and which ones are expensive wastes of money and time.
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.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields PEMF Therapy is recommended as a long-term application. The positive effects of PEMF Therapy last for a long period of time, but this depends fundamentally on the individual lifestyle of the user in question. The aim of the treatment is the preservation of physical capability and health until well into old age. It is less important how old one is, but rather the way in which one gets old (and with what quality of life).
Pulsed signal therapy is the result of three decades of research designed to characterise the piezoelectric signal that normally stimulates chondrocyte activity by creating a streaming potential in the extracellular matrix when bone is subjected to pressure. Although the transmission of this signal is impaired in OA, PST can reproduce this streaming potential in affected joints under no load, and the nine one-hour daily non-invasive treatments are devoid of any adverse side effects. Long term follow up confirms sustained pain relief, improved mobility, and a high safety profile as assessed by validated instruments (WOMAC, OMERAC, modified Ritchie scales) as well as evaluations by doctors and patients.
