When it’s understood the very fundamental ways that PEMFs affect cells, tissues and the body, it’s easy to see that PEMFs can address a very wide range of health conditions. In the book, Power Tools for Health (PTFH), I review the scientific research results from the use of PEMFs in 50 health conditions, supported by over 500 references. Each of these conditions was chosen because of the research data that was available. There is research support for the effectiveness of magnetic field therapy for many other conditions, especially in light of the fact of the kinds of mechanisms of action that have been found for PEMFs. In fact, I don’t even get into the benefits of static magnets and the research supporting their effectiveness for a more limited range of conditions.
A major category of conditions not covered by the book review includes all the many musculoskeletal problems, which by themselves can cover hundreds if not thousands of different individual diagnoses. An overall category, that I briefly touch on his pain management. Most musculoskeletal problems are accompanied by acute and chronic pain. Musculoskeletal problems include many tissue types: connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, bursae, joint capsules, joints themselves, cartilage, muscles, bone, blood vessels, nerves, bone marrow, among others. The musculoskeletal system is also very much affected by the immune system, circulatory system, nervous system, genetics, microorganisms, activity and nutrition.
Let’s use an example, a fracture. You can’t fracture a bone without affecting all the other tissues around the fractured bone. To treat a bone fracture conventional medicine simply puts a splint or cast around the area the fracture, or, often these days, surgery to fix the fragments, so that normal activity would not affect the fractured part from healing to produce a “union.” A fracture that doesn’t heal after 6 months is called a nonunion. A fracture that takes longer than 3 months to heal, typically, is considered a delayed union.
What happens to all the other tissues around the fracture? They have to heal themselves as well. Every tissue type has its own natural timeline for healing, depending on the severity of the damage. This healing timeline depends on the energy naturally present in that tissue, blood supply and drainage, nerve supply, stress placed on the tissue during activity, nutrient density, and so on. Ligaments and tendons take a long time to heal if ever.
Achilles tendon ruptures normally need to be sutured together with wire to hold the torn parts together. That’s because the Achilles tendon has a poor blood supply.
Areas of the body that develop problems very frequently include tendon, ligament, joint capsule and bursae, altogether in one area. One of the most common examples is the shoulder which develops bursitis, tendinitis, adhesive capsulitis and arthritis. These shoulder problems don’t heal very well and absolutely need help for healing.
The most commonly used tool in conventional medicine for healing these or at least reducing symptoms is steroid injections. Steroid injections don’t heal these tissues, in fact they actually contribute to the delayed healing of these tissues because they reduce inflammation and the ability for the body to repair itself. Steroid injections buy temporary relief but in the long run do more harm than good.
Magnetic field therapy is ideal for treating these areas of the body and these types of problems because magnetic field therapy increases circulation, reduces inflammation, reduces pain and swelling, softens the tissues, stimulates repair and healing, and improves joint motion. Another point is that PEMFs offer both shorter-term and longer-term benefits. These are many times better than steroid injections or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen or aspirin.
So, what are some of the other conditions that PEMFs treat? These include:
Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Eczema and Dermatitis
Fungal Skin Infections
Joint Replacements and Implanted Prosthetics
Osteopenia and Osteoporosis
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)
Scleroderma or Progressive Systemic Sclerosis (PSS)
Urinary Incontinence and Overactive Bladder
I won’t go into how effective PEMFs are for these conditions in this video. You will be amazed how well they work. I would recommend reading the book to go in depth on any of these if you wish for yourself or for someone you know who has one or more of these conditions and wants to get more help treating it.
One area that PEMFs are particularly useful for, and there is science to support their use, is for helping with many brain conditions or problems.
Now let’s go to the next section.
