PEMF therapy involves applying a PEMF machine to your body, either as a mat or pad. By stimulating your cells to heal naturally, electromagnetic pulses reach the cellular level in your body. Using PEMF for a few treatments can give you these benefits.
Benefits of PEMF therapy
An individual can benefit from PEMF therapy on so many levels.
1. Circulation increased
Magnetic fields increase circulation in the body, which is one of their most basic functions. Cells (such as red blood cells) suffer damage or illness when they lose their ideal charge—red blood cells “stick” together, causing circulation to slow down. A magnetic field runs through a red cell and charges its membrane, repelling other cells, increasing circulation. Moreover, PEMFs induce the blood vessels to dilate, which improves the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues by increasing blood flow through the vessels.
Tissues with poor circulation are prone to disease and breakdown. By increasing circulation, tissues receive more nutrition and oxygen, as well as expelling waste. Regeneration and tissue healing are made easier by good circulation. Improved circulation reduces swelling and removes bruising.
2. Strengthened Muscles
During the process of Myosin Phosphorylation, muscle energy is generated. Muscles are made up of myosin, and energy is produced by phosphorylation (ATP). Energy facilitates muscles’ ability to work harder and longer and to recover better from workouts. Spasms and contracted muscles are better able to relax, decreasing tension and reducing pain.
3. Reduced inflammation
Physiologically, inflammation begins when the body attempts to repair cells damaged by external stress, increase the number of good cells, and increase blood flow to the injured area. A cascade of immune cells (including T cells) mediates inflammation by interacting and supporting some immune cell types. Chronic inflammation results from chronic inflammation, which is a necessary and beneficial process that often persists longer than necessary.
Chronic pain is often caused by chronic inflammation that PEMFs reduce. Identifying the primary cause of inflammation is crucial to developing an effective treatment plan.
4. Reducing stress
Humans experience stress from time to time. Stress, known as eustress, is necessary for survival. The body damages itself with too much stress, and aging is accelerated. A recent study suggests that stress is responsible for about 65% of all illnesses, so reducing stress is necessary for every individual. If stress-reducing activities are performed only now and then, too much damage from stress can accumulate over time. It is therefore vital to practice stress reduction every day. Magnetism reduces stress in a variety of ways. You can wash away the harmful effects of natural stress with the use of PEMF mats.
5. Osteoporosis (bone healing)
Even bones experience magnetic fields as if they didn’t even exist. These therapies help bones regenerate after damage from surgery, injury, or disease and can be used to treat osteoporosis and osteopenia, among other conditions that destroy bones.
6. Oxygenating the Blood
A fire cannot burn without oxygen, just as the body cannot generate energy or heat. When we breathe, oxygen is extracted from the air by the lungs. The substance passes through arteries through the blood and is transported to all body parts, including the organs.
According to Healthyline.com, PEMFs effectively extract oxygen from the air we breathe and transport it into our bloodstream. Each cell absorbs the oxygen that has been absorbed. To maintain proper cell function, enzymes and other basic cell energy production processes use oxygen. A substance’s metabolism dictates how nutritious or harmful it will be to an organism.
This process can continue efficiently and quickly when the blood oxygen levels are adequate in the cells (not only in the blood). Veins take deoxygenated blood and metabolic waste products away from cells after oxygen exchanges take place. They then return to the heart, where they are recycled again.
