I began my journey with magnetic field therapies primarily to be able to heal the body and be able to produce better results than conventional medical approaches which mostly focus on reducing symptoms.
From my perspective, gained over years of being in the medical profession, the most elevated role for a doctor is to be a healer. A DOCTOR in this schema is someone who has a degree or training. At this stage the goal is to use whatever technically acceptable tools that are available and learned in the process of becoming a doctor. Beyond this stage and the training, the doctor may begin to understand that you’re dealing with real people in the context of their whole lives. This level of awareness and practice is the level of the PHYSICIAN. The real reason that most doctors and physicians choose to do this work is to be able to help people and be of service. That means that the technical aspects of doing this are only one tool to achieve the ultimate goal of healing. People are more than sinew and bone. At the HEALER level, many tools of healing can be beyond, sometimes way beyond, what conventional training, in almost any discipline, provides. Having a degree or certification in a discipline is simply acknowledging that technical proficiency has been achieved. However, healing may require tools or approaches that are not conventionally accepted within one’s particular degree or discipline. True healing happens at many levels, not just the physical. While PEMFs work primarily at the physical level, the best results using PEMFs happen when many levels of the individual are in agreement.
If the primary goal is to heal the physical cause of a problem, one has to understand that healing only happens with the body’s consent, using the body’s own healing capacity and its own wisdom. That means healing happens the way the body lets it or wants it to happen and not the way we “wish” it would happen. Like everyone else, I would wish that a fracture would heal instantly or at least overnight.
Physical healing happens based on the nutritional status of the body, the natural energy level or vitality of the body, the severity of the problem, how long the problem has been present, the emotional state, immune status, toxicity caused by environmental toxins, medications, drug abuse, chemotherapy and however many other problems the body is dealing with at a given time. PEMFs don’t remove these other impediments to healing. They simply give the body a fighting chance and accelerate the body’s natural capacities.
“You can’t grow a garden in a swamp.” You have to clear the swamp, that is, make the tissues as healthy as possible before true healing can take hold and accelerate. I know of a plastic surgeon who will not do plastic surgery on somebody until they’ve been on a proper nutritional protocol for at least 3 months. He found over the years that people with proper nutritional status get much better results and faster. This simply makes more obvious the fact that the body needs to be as healthy as possible before accelerated healing happens. PEMFs help to prepare the tissues for healing and regeneration and at the same time accelerate the healing process once it starts to take hold. This is why I frequently recommend PEMFs before surgery – to prepare the tissues pre-op.
The analogy I use is that you can’t rebuild a house without a plan, bricks and mortar, workers and tools.
To build a solid home or body, you have to start with a good foundation. Every day use of a whole-body PEMF system creates a dynamic, resilient cellular environment.
While magnetic therapy is excellent for treating existing conditions, it should also be used for preventative care. One of the most obvious reasons our bodies wear down over time is because of the cumulative effects of stress. Stress reactions are immediate, but recovery takes hours or even days. PEMF therapy offsets these effects before they make the body more susceptible to disease. In addition to stress, the natural aging process constantly threatens our foundation. Cellular turnover slows as we age. Eventually, cell division happens more slowly and less efficiently until cells are dying faster than they are replicating. Cell communication and metabolism slow, energy production wanes, and immune functions diminish. Daily use of PEMF therapy restores neurotransmitters and brain function, increases blood oxygen levels, improves circulation, balances blood pressure, promotes ATP production, and helps to activate the cellular antioxidant defenses throughout the entire body. This makes for a solid, adaptable foundation. Eating a nutrient-rich diet and making a point of taking high-quality supplements when necessary is essential to our overall health. Exercise and an active lifestyle also play an important role in keeping cells as healthy as possible. Movement of the body generates electric currents in joints, which helps to preserve the existing cartilage, tendons, and ligaments.
The next step to building your house is gathering good materials.
This means paying attention to the nutrients you are putting into your body. Nutrition and supplements are a huge part of health maintenance, and absolutely critical in terms of being able to heal a wound or combat a disease process. PEMFs cannot add anything to your body. If you have low potassium levels, you need extra potassium. If your sodium levels are too low, you need extra sodium. PEMF therapy will not give you sodium or potassium. But, PEMF therapy will help your body make the most of the sodium and potassium it has access to, restoring health more quickly and efficiently. Nutrition, supplements, and a healthy lifestyle make the “bricks and mortar” more effective.
Once you have the foundation and materials in place, you have to find the right tools to put it all together. The tools in this case are the natural built-in processes the body has to repair and maintain itself. These tools include genes, hormones, enzymes, heat, balanced pH, ATP energy and waste disposal. For the purposes of our analogy, I would call these “hand tools.” For many reasons, these basic tools are often not available to function optimally, or are incapable of overcoming various obstacles, breakdowns, or imbalances. And so, we turn to power tools to do the jobs our simple hand tools cannot. PEMFs are the power tools of health, providing energy – literally and metaphorically – to our home-building (body-building) project.
The final piece we need to assemble when building our house is the crew to put it all together. Your crew is your body’s natural building and repair processes, including various types of cells in the body – RBCs, WBCs, Bone cells, fibroblasts, and the microbiome, among others. The crew also includes your village – your friends and family, spiritual and emotional support team, and your physicians. You cannot build the house alone. You may need specialists in a variety of fields to get the highest quality outcome. PEMFs are applicable here as well, taking raw materials and the body’s processes and helping them come together as seamlessly as possible.
Now let’s discuss some broader specific applications of PEMFs.
