Perhaps the easiest way to understand PEMF is to think in terms of each cell in your body as if it were a little battery. Like with any battery, sometimes your cells become tired and worn, whether due to age, stress, overuse, or damage, making it more difficult for them to fight off any type of potentially damaging force or illness. Our skins, bones, and organs are composed of tiny cells. The membrane of a healthy cell has both positive and negative charges that are required for the exchange of potassium, sodium, and calcium ions. When cells become distressed from disease, trauma or toxins, they lose their ability to function efficiently. PEMF restores the positive and negative charges in the cell, enabling it to perform its natural function while speeding tissue recovery. In essence, PEMF is like a “battery re-charger” for your depleted cells. PEMF therapy has several years of clinical success in relieving pain at the source by pulsing electromagnetic waves at precise frequencies, speeding the body’s recovery at a cellular level. PEMF therapy was approved by the FDA in 1979 specifically for the healing of non-union fractures, which came after a Columbia University study that was encouraged by NASA, and has recently gained attention in the U.S.
PEMF technology was developed after WWII (though its origins go back much further) and was researched and adopted by NASA. PEMF 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.
PEMF technology has been FDA approved for 25 years for bone healing, post-surgical pain and healing, pain and inflammation, knee pain and even depression. PEMF technology efficacy is established in more than 20,000 well-documented clinical studies, trials & Research carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists, physiotherapists, and neurologists.
The existence of electrostatic currents inside human body can be seen using ECG, EEG and EMG. Human body is like a Bio-battery made up of 70-100 trillion cells. Each cell carries an electric charge known as the “cell membrane potential”. A healthy cell has membrane potential between 70 mV to 90 mV that powers the biology of our lives & controls the daily activities such as thinking, talking, moving, digesting foods, and coping with diseases. This membrane potential decreases with the age, sedentary lifestyle, & a variety of pollutants, stress, & acidified foods. Once the cell membrane potential drops below 70mV, nutrient, oxygen, and H2O cannot get in; waste and carbon dioxide cannot get out; and too much toxins, sodium and hydrogen stay inside the cell. It becomes an unhealthy cell and a cause for disease.
High electric potential works like a battery charger for human cells. It can generate effective stimulation to recharge these body cells, which vitalize them, reconstruct nervous system & purify blood to revive and maintain a good body condition. It also helps to increase the negative ions in the body, enhance our immune system. When the amount of negative Ion’s increase, the Gamma Globulin in the blood increases resulting in blood rich in protein and antibodies. Negative Ions purify blood cells. According to Dr. Tanaka, when – Ionization is introduced, the Ions in calcium and natrium (common salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by increased blood alkalinity. Negative Ions control the autonomic nervous system. Dr. Tanaka found that negative Ions control the balance in the Autonomic Nervous System between the insulin and adrenal functions. This provides strong resistance to diseases. Negative Ions revive the cell. When the amount of negative Ions in the blood is increased, the function of a cell is activated. The electrical material exchange speeds up the cell function, and, as a result, nutrition is fully absorbed by the cell and waste material is eliminated. Metabolism is increased and the function of the cell is gradually revived. High electric Potential Therapy enhances The Power of Natural Healing.
The human body requires electricity to send signals through the body and to the brain. PEMF therapy works effectively to re-align the electric potential of our cells. Resting cells are negatively charged on the inside, while the outside of the cell is more positively charged. The flow of charges across the cell membrane is what generates electrical currents. When a cell is stimulated, it allows positive charges to enter the cell through open ion channels. The inside of the cell then becomes more positively charged, which triggers further electrical currents that can turn into electrical pulses, called action potentials. Our bodies use certain patterns of action potentials to initiate the correct movements, thoughts and behaviours. A disruption in electrical currents can lead to illness. High Voltage Micro Currents can restore the disruption of the electrical current to its normal state, therefore, helping restore the cell.
You can think of the cells in our bodies as tiny batteries generating energy. They need to be recharged, in the same way your cell phone’s battery needs to be recharged. Low voltage in our cells is what causes them to malfunction, resulting in illness and pain. We can think of High Voltage Micro Currents as a cells energizer.
