Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy and Anti-aging
Aging is an evolutionary process that can affect people in many different ways depending on personal lifestyle, diet, stress, genetics, environmental influences (toxins) and attitude. Everything is connected: Body, Mind, Spirit and the Earth. On one level, a major part of aging appears to center around basic levels of energy that a person possesses. We’ve all seen older people with lots of energy… they can appear to be healthier and younger than someone who has far less ‘energy.’
Take this down to a cellular level and we see that a part of aging has to do with cellular metabolism. Research shows that PEMF therapy can slow down the aging process at the cellular level. Simply put, PEMF charges and maintains cellular voltage at a healthy level, thus allowing the cell membrane to become more permeable and to work more efficiently. This facilitates the absorption of oxygen from which we get 80% to 90% of our cellular energy (Dr. Frank Shallenberger). Cells are comprised of a high percentage of water. It’s a fundamental physical law that a fluid is able to hold more oxygen when it maintains a higher voltage. PEMF supplies the added voltage. Along with energy (voltage) we also need oxygen to fuel cellular metabolism. PEMF therapy has repeatedly shown to increase oxygen transfer and absorption.
Whether it is healing, maintenance or anti-aging there are fundamentally four things required to get well or maintain your health:
- You need the proper energy level... and in this case, 'energy' is the proper cellular voltage level. PEMF therapy increases cellular voltage.
- You need the proper building blocks to make new healthy cells. This means a healthy diet and possibly nutritional supplements that may be lacking in the body. PEMF increases nutritional absorption along with water and oxygen, plus it helps the body to rid itself of toxins more efficiently.
- You need to identify and eliminate any imbalances that are toxic to all systems of the body, whether physical, emotional or mental.
- You have to really want to get better. Many people receive some kind of emotional or mental reward due to their poor health, even if it's going to kill them.
PEMF also increases the absorption of nutrients and water. At the same time, increasing cellular efficiency will also improve the elimination of carbon dioxide and toxins. Detoxification is the only minor side-effect that needs to be monitored when using PEMF, especially on a full body mat. This is usually manifested by symptoms of fatigue, low energy or headaches but usually doesn't last too long.
One of the major benefits of PEMF is that magnetic waves penetrate and pass completely through every cell in the body... right down to the bone marrow. Nothing does this with such thorough efficiency... not anything applied in any manner - not even electrical currents that take the path of least resistance, plus you can never bathe the whole body all at once except with magnetic waves.
For over thirty years, there have been thousands of research studies done on pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. Over twenty-five hundred double-blind studies to mitigate the placebo effect. All up, over eight thousand independent clinical studies, PEMF is approved by doctors and has been used in hospitals for over 15 years in Europe.
PEMF has repeatedly shown to increase oxygen content in the body. Oxygen stress or starvation occurs in the body as cells age. Bear in mind that cells are constantly being replaced, some as often as every forty-eight hours. You get a completely new body every six to seven years. The important thing to note is that cells have a tendency to reproduce themselves as a copy of an existing cell. Therefore, if you have a poor copy, i.e., a cell with low energy that doesn’t function to the level it’s capable of, then you will produce more cells at that same level.
PEMF Therapy can help to improve this. Natural pulsed electromagnetic fields charge the cells and in particular, red blood cells that carry the oxygen to all parts of the body. Darkfield microscopy shows that red blood cells when clumped together (called sticky blood or agglutination) will separate after eight to ten minutes of PEMF therapy. The tendency for red blood cells sticking together is also called the Rouleau effect. This clumping or agglutination can reduce the oxygen exchange to cells significantly. Two red blood cells stuck together reduce oxygen transfer by 74% and eight or more by up to 50%. lack of oxygen has been associated with almost every category of illness.
Eight minutes after a PEMF therapy session a microscope shows the red blood cells have completely separated. This increases the oxygen exchange, allows more oxygen to be stored by the cells and also opens the cell membrane to be more permeable, allowing more nutrients in and more toxins out. Getting the right amount of oxygen is one of the keys to good health and longevity.
Oxygen therapy (hyperbaric chamber) is used to heal injuries or wounds much faster. One major difference between a hyperbaric chamber and PEMF therapy is that the body will maintain its charge... therefore its cellular efficiency for four to six hours after a PEMF treatment. The electromagnetic charge is held by the body while oxygen is quickly consumed.
