PEMF Therapy can Reduce Inflammation And Boost the Health of Immune System
Inflammation is an important physiological process, but prolonged inflammation can indicate health problems, and it can negatively affect your quality of life. There are several things you can do to reduce inflammation in the body, including PEMF therapy.
What is inflammation?
Inflammation happens because your body identifies a threat. Your immune system tries to combat harmful stimuli, and inflammation is one of the ways your body tries to protect itself.
Different things cause inflammation. Acute inflammation may result from infection, injury or illness. Chronic inflammation may be caused by chronic conditions such as arthritis, or from an auto-immune disorder.
Inflammation isn’t always a bad thing. It’s actually a part of the body’s healing process. Injured areas swell or become inflamed because your body wants to protect that area.
However, inflammation becomes a problem when it lasts longer than it should, or because there is unnecessary inflammation.
Inflammation can cause discomfort, irritation, pain, swelling, and redness. It can limit mobility and reduce range of motion. It can also cause disability and decrease a person’s quality of life.
So how can you reduce inflammation?
Eat an anti-inflammatory diet
The foods you eat, and the foods that you don’t eat, can influence inflammation in the body.
Some foods have been linked with increased inflammation. Reduce or cut out:
- fried foods
- highly processed foods
- refined carbohydrates, such as white flour
- soda and sweet beverages
- foods using lard or margarine
- highly processed meats like breakfast sausage, bacon, and hotdogs
Some foods have anti-inflammatory properties:
- olive oil
- fish with omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon and tuna
- spices such as cinnamon, rosemary, ginger, garlic, and turmeric
Staying active can help you maintain a healthy weight, which can help you manage inflammation. People who are overweight or obese tend to have more inflammation than those at a healthy weight.
Stress, depression, and anxiety have been shown to increase inflammation in the body. Stress management techniques can help reduce stress. Set aside time for yourself each day to improve your mood, relax, and manage stress.
- Listen to soothing music.
- Read a book.
- Stretch or do yoga.
- Color, draw, or paint.
- Pick up a hobby.
Heat and cold therapies
Both heat and cold therapies can be used to relieve inflammation and the pain that often accompanies it. Cold therapy, or cryotherapy, is especially helpful in reducing inflammation in the body.
One of unique advantages of PEMF therapy for inflammation reduction is that it works to reduce inflammation on multiple fronts. PEMF therapy promotes improved immune response, it reduces inflammation directly, it can improve your mood and treat depression, it triggers the body’s natural healing processes, and it promotes overall wellness.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is a safe and effective way to reduce inflammation, pain, and swelling in the body, and it provides numerous other health benefits:
- improves immune response
- improves circulation
- oxygenates cells
- helps you stay active
- promotes healing and decreases recovery times
- improves cell health and function
- improve moos and decreases stress
- FDA approved to treat anxiety and depression
- improves cellular metabolism
Why choose PEMF therapy?
PEMF is a non-invasive and drug-free therapy that compliments other therapies and, together with a combination of regular exercise and a healthy diet, can aid acceleration of the healing process. However, individuals are advised to consult their physicals before changing any medication.
If individuals are living with constant pain, they would likely have already tried different forms of therapy; if unsuccessful they may have taken certain painkillers to conceal the pain and organize their daily routine around their pain.
This cycle is followed for such a long time that resistance builds up in the body. Long-term pain medication can also lead to other consequences such as internal bleeding and stomach problems. PEMFs can accelerate the healing process, reducing pain and allowing individuals to move more freely.
For sleep management
At EMF8000 one recurrent piece of feedback is that PEMF therapy improves people’s sleep quality. PEMFs are not only useful for deep relaxation but also help with falling asleep and sustaining sleep throughout the night.
PEMF therapy relaxes both the mind and the body and facilitates the release of two hormones called Melatonin and Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which are crucial for longevity and deep sleep, thus improving people’s sleep.
Through theta-delta frequencies, the brain is induced with the traditionally known frequencies for deep relaxation and sleep. Melatonin is one of the most vital hormones for anti-aging and sleep. PEMF therapy stimulates its production in the pineal gland.
HGH is another vital hormone that plays a role in deep sleep and is also stimulated by PEMFs. During deep sleep, both Melatonin and HGH hormones are produced which are also known to have anti-aging properties.
Deep sleep is promoted by PEMF therapy, thereby recharging the body and providing people with an increasing amount of energy during the day. Sleep issues should be tackled to ensure a good quality night’s sleep, because sleep revitalizes and heals the body. So, it is important to get plenty of sleep.
For mental focus
The programs in PEMF therapy promote an alpha state, wherein the mind is awakened but relaxed, and set to learn and simultaneously retain much more without continuous reviewing.
Beta brain waves are induced by another program, where the ability for data processing, problem solving, and multitasking is increased, allowing individuals to prevent distraction, have focused control, and be highly productive.
For stress reduction
Studies have demonstrated that when PEMF therapy is regularly used, it changes the body’s stress responses by directly acting on major related components, such as the endocrine and nervous systems, along with the cells or organs of the body.
In addition, PEMFs can make the body less reactive to extended episodes of stress. Transcranial PEMF was approved by the FDA in 2011 for treating severe, drug-resistant depression.
For injury, recovery and healing
Use PEMF therapy to prepare, perform and recover; if PEMF therapy is performed regularly, it allows muscles to work harder for a longer period of time and recover more rapidly. PEMF therapy triggers the process of energy production in muscles and also increases the cellular energy by as much as 500%.
In addition, PEMF therapy provides a gentle way to trigger the production of heat stress proteins prior to exercise. These proteins not only prevent the breakdown and wear and tear of cells, but also encourage accelerated healing from injury.
Studies show that with PEMF therapy, the uptake of oxygen into muscle increases by at least 1%, which is sufficient to considerably improve endurance and performance. PEMF therapy also stimulates blood vessel growth, which increases circulation further aiding tissues to receive their required nutrition, while expelling their generated waste.
For the casual exerciser, this means less pain and tenderness the day after activity. For the competitive athlete, this means reduced recovery time between training and more effective training. For everyone, it means building a healthier environment within the body, which is less likely to become susceptible to injury.
Why do I need treatment at a cellular level?
The charge of the cell membrane is affected by magnetic fields, causing the membrane channels to open up. These channels are similar to the windows and doors of a house. When the cell channels are opened, nutrients enter the cell more easily and the cellular waste is more easily removed, helping to rebalance and restore optimum function of the cell.
If sufficient cells are restored, they will all perform more efficiently. The same type of cells come together to make tissues, which in turn come together to form organs. Therefore, when cellular function is restored or maintained, organ function is also restored or maintained, enabling the whole body to function in a better way.
Can anyone use PEMFs?
PEMF therapy should never be used if the applicators have to be placed over implanted electrical devices like intrathecal pumps, cochlear implants, and pacemakers. This precaution is taken to make sure that the magnetic field does not affect the performance of these devices.
Further than that, PEMF therapy can be safely used by everyone and anywhere. In addition, applicators can be placed over sensitive organs, for example prostate, over the eyes, and the brain. In effect, study has demonstrated that when applicators are placed the over the heart, they can improve congestive heart failure.
Can PEMFs protect me from future injuries and ailments?
Improper functioning of the cells, regardless of the reason, can lead to serious illness. Magnetic fields improve energy, circulation, and the repair process in order to protect against cell malfunction. They also help to increase unique stress proteins present in the cells.
Cell breakdown, caused by wear and tear, can be prevented by using these proteins, which also encourage rapid recovery from injury. Magnetic fields are capable of balancing bodily functions and tissues at extremely fundamental levels, even before problems and damage take place.
What is a PEMF therapy device and how does it work?
To apply PEMF therapy, an electrical current is run through a copper coil which produces a magnetic field. This has been incorporated into various types of devices, with a full body therapy mat being the most effective and oft-used device. One either lays on the mat or places the applicator in the region that needs to be treated. PEMFs will enter through the body targeting the muscle tissue, cells, and even bones.
While the use of PEMF therapy does not affect many people, there are some who can have mild adverse reactions. Since magnet therapies have a wide range of actions within the body, it is common to experience some mild discomfort, particularly when initiating treatment.
The majority of these reactions are temporary and mild. In people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity and electrical hypersensitivity, these reactions are not only increasingly common but also more uncomfortable, yet magnetic therapy is seldom discontinued in this situation. Usually, the issues can be resolved by slightly adjusting the treatment.
