It is important to distinguish between the electromagnetic fields we use for therapeutic purposes, and other man-made electromagnetic fields (harmful EMFs) from power lines, microwave ovens, cell phones, etc., which can cause damage to our bodies. The PEMF devices we recommend all produce safe, natural electromagnetic fields which are of lower frequency, and are complementary to the chemistry and functions of the body.
Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are present everywhere in our environment but are low in intensity and invisible to the human eye. Electric fields that create magnetic fields are produced by the local build-up of electrical charges in the atmosphere associated with thunderstorm. The earth’s magnetic field causes a compass needle to orient in a North-South direction and is used by birds and fish for navigation.
Science teaches that all energy is electromagnetic in nature. Our bodies and its individual organs radiate their own EMFs and our trillion cells communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Disruption of electromagnetic energy in cells causes impaired cell metabolism, which leads to disease.
Harmful man-made EMFs
We are surrounded by stress-producing electromagnetic fields. These fields are generated by electrical wiring in our homes and offices, from televisions, computers, and video terminals, microwave ovens, overhead lights, power lines, and the hundreds of motors that can generate higher-than-normal Gauss strengths. The balance of the human organism can easily be negatively affected by electromagnetic changes in the environment, and an unbalanced body is more susceptible to disease. EMFs interact with living systems, affecting enzymes related to cell division and multiplication, growth regulation, and regulation of the sleep hormone melatonin (controlled by the pineal gland metabolism.)
Cumulative exposure – hour after hour, day after day – to EMFs is of the greatest concern. Ordinary household appliances tend to generate larger cumulative EMF exposures than power lines, as most people do not live close enough to power lines to be dramatically affected by their EMFs. The same cannot be said of kitchen appliances, computers, televisions, cell phones, and even electric outlets (especially if it’s directly behind the headboard of a bed). Though EMFs from appliances drop off at a distance of about 16 feet, people are generally much nearer than that to the source of the electromagnetic field – typically 18 inches from computers, a few feet from televisions, and practically no distance from cell phones.
The first study to establish a direct link between EMFs and cancer came in 1979 from the University of Colorado. Two epidemiologists, Nancy Wertheimer, Ph.D., and Ed Leeper, Ph.D., found that children who had been exposed to high-voltage lines in their early childhood had two to three times higher than normal risk of developing cancer, especially leukemia.
In 1987, a large-scale study conducted by the New York State Department of health confirmed Dr. Wertheimer’s findings, and added that the EMFs from the high-voltage power lines also affected the neurohormones of the brain. Various studies have since shown a link between electromagnetic fields and an increased incidence of heart disease, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, headaches, sexual dysfunction, and blood disorders – the latter including up to a 50 percent increase in white blood cell count.
Beneficial man-made EMFs
Beneficial man made EMFs are biologically identical to the frequencies created by the cells, organs, bone and tissues of the body. Delivered to the body by the magnetic fields, they are noninvasive and nontoxic. Most PEMF devices we recommend produce frequencies in the ELF to VLF range, since they do not induce heating actions. Research has shown that specific pulsed electromagnetic fields in low frequency (Hz) and intensity (Gauss) range increase oxygenation to the blood, improve circulation and cell metabolism. Results include sound sleep, pain relief, reduced inflammation, improved energy levels, enhanced tissue and bone healing, Etc.
Because of these effects in the body, daily use of beneficial EMFs supports healthy aging. EMFs have been use extensively for decades in many conditions and medical disciplines, and results can be seen in animals as well as humans. Results include sound sleep, pain relief, reduced inflammation, improved energy levels, enhanced tissue and bone healing, etc.
Our recommended treatment devices have a very safe track record – even the much higher intensity and frequency diagnostic MRI machines have been found to be safe to the people that operate them daily, as long as the safety directions are followed.
