What is PEMF?

Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy, commonly known as PEMF is energy medicine. Electromagnetic therapy, is modeled after the earth’s own electromagnetic pulse, is used to improve circulation and cell metabolism. Human bodies are alive because of electromagnetic exchanges between cells. We measure brain waves with EEG tests and cardiac waves through EKG tests. When a person goes into cardiac arrest a defibrillator is used to deliver a therapeutic dose of energy to the heart to restart it.
PEMF therapy introduces a low frequency pulsed electro-magnetic field (PEMF) that recharges the cells of the body, allowing them to float freely, increasing their effective functioning surface area and consequently enhancing circulation, oxygenation and hydration. At the same time cellular ability to absorb nutrients and remove toxins from the body is greatly increased.
When NASA sent its astronauts to live in space for extended periods of time, they realized the reduction in exposure to the earth’s magnetic field had an adverse health effect. To rectify this problem they researched the positive effects of PEMF. One study, put out by the Johnson Space Center entitled “Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields – A Countermeasure for Bone Loss and Muscle Atrophy,” states the following in an article on NASA’s website:
Currently, there is a critical need to develop effective countermeasures for bone loss and muscleatrophy to enable future human space exploration to the Moon, Mars and beyond. Progressive muscle atrophy can lead to weakness, fatigue, the inability to perform efficiently assigned tasks, and compromised emergency egress operations. Bone loss causes increased risk of bone fracture and kidney stones, which can also negatively affect mission objectives and success. The purpose of these studies is to develop a pulsed electromagnetic field device for use as a noninvasive countermeasure to enhance bone retention, prevent or alleviate muscle atrophy, and augment natural healing/regeneration processes. This research represents a major contribution toward enabling humans to live and work safely in space, and is especially relevant to projected human space exploration. On Earth, this device could be useful in the treatment of various muscle diseases, age- and cancer-related muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, and other bone diseases.
To understand the benefit energy medicine and PEMF we need to understand how the human body works.
