What is the best PEMF machine for cardiovascular health? I go back to cause – that’s the most important thing. What’s causing the problem? And the cause of the problem, most of the time, is diet and other lifestyle factors, stress. It could be genetics. So you could say “blame it on my genes, blame it on my ancestors,” but that’s not the right answer. You have to do something in your life right now to deal with the problem.
If you’re advanced in your cardiovascular disease, then you need extra help and PEMF therapy can be very helpful for that. You can treat the heart locally if you have a vascular disease of the heart if you have blocked blood vessels in the heart. If you have arrhythmias magnetic field therapy directly to the heart can be very helpful. There’s information in my book, Power Tools for Health, that could help you with that.
Vascular disease, in general, is caused by endothelial dysfunction. Endothelium is the inside lining of the blood cell. It’s very active, very dynamic. Inflammation there causes the build-up of plaque and that build-up of plaque is what causes blockages of blood vessels. Medicine says if they have high cholesterol then that’s the cause. That’s the culprit. High cholesterol is the result of inflammation in the blood vessels and the inflammation in the blood vessels, most of the time, is being caused by lifestyle. The biggest problem, most of the time, is not the fats in your diet – it’s the carbohydrates in your diet. You have to control those. You want to get your A1C under 5.7. Ideally, you should have it around 5.2 or 5.3, and if you don’t you’re building vascular disease.
For whole-body magnetic therapy, if you want to condition your whole body system, and this is a part of the anti-aging solution, then you need a strong enough magnetic field to help the inside linings of the blood vessels to decrease inflammation. If it’s a local problem, if you have peripheral vascular disease, then you can treat locally to get more aggressive treatment. Again, you’re going to need a higher intensity magnetic field therapy system.
For vascular disease anywhere, the brain, carotids, the heart, the kidneys, the entire body, magnetic field therapy is great. One of the things magnetic therapy does is increase something called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes the blood vessels to open up. So magnetic therapy decreases inflammation, but it also increases Nitric oxide so it helps you to pump blood better. That’s what causes improvements in circulation in general.
If you have compromised blood flow because you’ve got blood vessels the magnetic therapy opens those blood vessels a bit more and improves the circulation. In the long run, you have to get rid of the blockages, and lifestyle and magnetic field therapy can help to do that, but it’s not going to happen overnight. It takes time to have that work for you. In one of my original books, Magnetic Therapy in Eastern Europe: A review of 30 years of research, had a number of cardiovascular studies being done showing how PEMFs can be very, very helpful. We have other treatments for angina these days, but back then you had nitroglycerin as a primary treatment for it. But even if you’re still using these other nitrates to help open up the circulation, magnetic field therapy is very helpful for that.
There’s a risk. If you have chest pain that’s due to blocked blood vessels and the heart’s not pumping properly, magnetic therapy can be so effective that you’ll rely on that and not do what you need to do. So there is that risk. But once you know what you have going on and you’re under proper care, then applying magnetic field therapies to your heart can be very helpful in reducing inflammation, increasing the ability of the heart to work. You could actually increase your workload and the heart will work better because magnetic field therapy increases the pump action of the muscles of the heart and increases mitochondrial production, ATP production in the heart. One of the organs in the body that uses ATP the most is the heart and the other one is the brain. If you can help the heart to function better, it will help with congestive heart failure. It’s very, very helpful for congestive heart failure. Again, not as a sole solution, but it can be very useful there.
