The research to date has shown that the mechanisms by which PEMF works are complicated and likely involve many pathways. In addition to increasing cell metabolism, perhaps PEMF’s greatest power is in its ability to ameliorate the effects of inflammation by decreasing inflammatory cytokines. it is also conceivable, as suggested by Gordon et al, that another important effect of PEMF is the ability of the magnetic fields to restore “equilibrium in ROS (free radical)/antioxidant chemistry. It is unequivocal that all chronic diseases result from a lack of homeostasis between free radicals and antioxidants. While both free radicals and antioxidants are normal and vital for processes such as cellular respiration and immunity, an imbalance could lead to cell and tissue death, DNA damage, and protein and fat degradation.
What does it promise? A technology first used by vets to treat injured racehorses, the electromagnetic charges thrown out by PEMF equipment are thought to stimulate your body’s cells, which can aid recovery from injury, reduce headaches, improve your immune system and blood circulation, provide improved sleep, and boost your general energy. People swear by it. Admittedly, one of those people is Noel Edmonds.
Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) transduction mechanism based on evidence to date that many athermal PEMF effects depend upon nitric oxide cascades. PEMFs can be configured to modulate calcium-binding kinetics to calmodulin. Calcium/calmodulin then activates nitric oxide synthase and the relevant cascade ensues dependent upon stage of tissue repair process. This mechanism has been proposed as a working model for PEMF therapeutics.61
The ergogenic athletic performance enhancement effects of our PEMF systems exceed anything reported in the scientific literature for increasing strength, stamina, VO2 Max or averting training-induced soreness. Unlike hypoxic training, hyperbaric oxygen or PEMF therapy systems, EarthPulse™ PEMF takes absolutely no effort at all other than turning it on when going to bed. It works synergistically with all nutritional programs and appears to qualify as an adaptogen and anabolic when paired with rigorous physical training.

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
More recently our bodies have been bombarded with unnatural and harmful EMF's. As well we are working and living in unnatural environments which block the natural earth emf's (which we need). This is a similar experience of astronauts in space who were affected by the lack of the natural earths emf's and then negatively affected. With all this advent of “modern” technology now we require these other methods of PEMF Therapy to help bring our bodies back into balance. And there are many other things (pollutants, improper nutrition, and many others) which take the body out of its natural balance where PEMF Therapy is essential. The other factors such as proper nutrition etc.still need to be addressed.

RASED : Le RASED, Réseau d'aide spécialisé aux élèves en difficulté, est une structure qui (quand il est complet) regroupe un psychologue scolaire, un maître E et un maître G. Les maîtres spécialisés interviennent auprès de petits groupes d'élèves en difficulté pour les aider dans leurs apprentissages (spécialité E) ou à mieux appréhender leur "métier d'élève" (spécialité G). Le psychologue scolaire a uniquement un rôle de diagnostic, de coordination et d'orientation vers les bonnes prises en charge. Il ne reçoit qu'après accord écrit des parents et ne fait pas de psychothérapie lui-même.
In an episode of the Bulletproof Radio podcast, PEMF expert Dr. Gary Ryan, known as “The Energy Doctor,” explains, “Based on a lot of research that was done at Yale, it is apparent that just about any pathology in the body is preceded by a drop in cell charge. Now we have technology that will reach down to the level of a cell that has lost charge and, due to the high intensity of the pulse, bring that pulse back to normal or a more normal situation, which allows it to replicate and produce a more normal cell.”
“When I ordered your device, I was taking a leading sleep med on and off just so I could get a few hours of sleep. I have been using the EarthPulse device for seven nights now, at Sleep 4, Last night was the first night in a very long time where I only woke up once during the night and then returned to sleep . RBH – first time (prior to use) was 90 seconds. Second time (5 days later) was 125 seconds. Wow!”
As per published research, PEMF therapy has been proven to be beneficial for a variety of disorders that affect the brain as well as the whole body. PEMF-Devices.com blog is covering many such conditions one-by-one. We also endeavour to find out the extent of healing that happens in various conditions due to PEMF therapy. Finally, we cover PEMF devices for which there are reviews from users that explain their experience as well as the techniques and use guide for these conditions based on reviews and research.

CONCLUSIONS: This review shows that plastic surgeons have at hand a powerful tool with no known side effects for the adjunctive, noninvasive, nonpharmacologic management of postoperative pain and edema. Given the recent rapid advances in development of portable and economical PEMF devices, what has been of most significance to the plastic surgeon is the laboratory and clinical confirmation of decreased pain and swelling following injury or surgery.
PEMFs are frequency-based, applied to either the whole body or parts of the body. PEMFs may only be needed for short periods of time, while the effects last for many hours, setting in motion cellular and whole-body changes to restore and maintain balance in metabolism and health. The body does not acclimate, or “get used to,” the healthy energy signals of therapeutic PEMFs, even if used for a long time, compared to magnets.

Once it was established that Ca2+ binding to CaM was a potential transduction pathway for PEMFs, the electrochemical model was employed to configure RF signals that would efficiently couple to Ca2+-binding kinetics28 using rate constants, which are well studied for the Ca/CaM system.39 This enabled the diathermy-based PEMF signal to be reconfigured so that its frequency spectrum more closely matched the dielectric properties of Ca2+-binding kinetics at CaM. The result is a PEMF device that uses 100 times less peak power to produce a biologically effective signal dose in the body. Initial confirmation of these predictions of the electrochemical model were reported for the MLCK enzyme assay, neurite outgrowth, and bone repair in a rabbit model.40 All of the limitations of the original diathermy-based devices were therefore addressed, potentially providing the physician with a more versatile and economical tool for postoperative pain and edema management with no known side effects.3
Exercise therapy interventions for patients with impingement are intended to restore the frontal and transverse plane glenohumeral force couples and normalize scapular motion. Generally they consist of progressive resistive exercises for the rotator cuff and scapular muscles and stretching of tight structures but they should also address the motor control deficits identified in patients with impingement. More detail on shoulder exercises is provided in Chapters 21 and 22. Exercise interventions have been supported in a number of recent randomized trials (Werner et al 2002, Walther et al 2004, Lombardi et al 2008) and systematic literature reviews for producing improvements in both pain and function (Green et al 2003, Trampas & Kitsios 2006, Faber et al 2006). In a Cochrane review (Green et al 2003), exercise was noted as effective in terms of short-term recovery in rotator cuff disease (RR 7.74; 95% CI 1.97–30.32) and for longer-term benefit with regard to function (RR 2.45; 95% CI 1.24–4.86). It should be noted that in patients with Neer stage I–II impingement there are no significant between-group differences (at 6 and 12 weeks) with regard to pain and function for patients treated with a supervised exercise programme or a home programme in which they are instructed by a physical therapist (Werner et al 2002, Walther et al 2004).
PEMF Therapy has been proven to be a very effective method to restore and maintain cellular function by re-balancing the cellular membrane functions and improve oxygenation of the cells and nutrient flow and as well as to detoxify the cells. As more cells are re-balanced the natural regeneration process occurs. PEMF Therapy has also been shown to be effective in counteracting the negative affects of the BAD EMF's.
PEMFs have been in clinical use for generations. For most of that time, however, PEMFs have been relegated to second or even third tier status, with some ardent supporters, a number of skeptics, and most clinicians and patients simply unaware of their benefits. Without substantive information about a mechanism of action and frequently being the subject of overzealous marketing and inflated claims, PEMF devices lacked credibility. When the knowledge base in basic sciences allowed for the critical examination of PEMF in the laboratory and provided techniques for both targeting and engineering, the system advanced and the many effects of PEMF signals could be rationalized within at least 1 biologic cascade—one that is dependent on an electrochemical process and can be affected by exogenous signals. It was clear from this work that different PEMF signals and configurations produce widely different results depending on how well targeted those signals are to naturally occurring and biologically salient electrochemical processes. As this body of evidence grows and clinical experience widens, the gaps in the current knowledge (especially concerning optimal treatment regimens for specific conditions) will be filled. At the same time, we anticipate that improved signals and products that are more effective and more ergonomically designed will be developed, and that other electrochemical pathways will be targeted for additional indications. This may finally be the century of electrotherapy. In the meantime, plastic surgeons have at hand a powerful tool for the adjunctive management of postoperative pain and edema and wound repair. PEMF therapy is simple, cost-effective, has no known side effects, and may well play a large role in treatment of otherwise intractable wounds while reducing the cost of health care.
RESULTS: Sixty-six patients were included, and 60 completed the study. After 1 month, PEMF induced a significant reduction in VAS pain and WOMAC scores compared with placebo. Additionally, pain tolerance, as expressed by PPT changes, and physical health improved in PEMF-treated patients. A mean treatment effect of -0.73 (95% CI - 1.24 to - 0.19) was seen in VAS score, while the effect size was -0.34 (95% CI - 0.85 to 0.17) for WOMAC score. Twenty-six per cent of patients in the PEMF group stopped NSAID/analgesic therapy. No adverse events were detected.
Merci beaucoup pour tous ces éclairages supplémentaires, c'est beaucoup plus clair pour moi ainsi. Je sors juste d'une réunion de l'icem justement, et cela a soulevé énormément de questions... du coup, ça m'a paru très riche et en même temps très frustrant car j'aurais eu des milliers de questions pour mes collègues qui fonctionnent en classe coopérative.
