PEMF (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field) Therapy is a hot new natural healing modality that is just now becoming widespread in North America, though it is commonplace in Europe. PEMF is incredibly well researched with hundreds of clinical studies (search "pemf" on pubmed.com).
The Proven Benefits of PEMF Therapy include
- Decreased pain
- Improved Sleep
- Improved Circulation
- Regenerates the Nerves
- Helps with Wound Healing
- Enhanced Immunity
- Creates Stronger Bones
PEMF is used by more than 400,000 people and 4000 athletes in Europe and currently there are several Athletes and celebrities using it like Shaquille O'Neal, Terrell Owens, Lance Armstrong, Muhammad Ali, Roger Moore, Peter Sellers and many others.
7 Tips You Need to Know Before Purchasing a PEMF Therapy Device
Tip # 1 : Make sure to get a full body mat. You will be disappointed with cheaper devices that offer only local treatment. Plus the companies that sell the full body mats usually do come with a local applicator anyway. The real benefit rests in the full body treatment. The MRS 2000, Bemer 3000, QRS Quantron, Magno-pro and Curatron are the best machines that sell full body PEMF.
Tip # 2 : It is critical to use only machines with low intensities between 0 and 50 uT (micro tesla). All the top companies (MRS 2000, QRS Quantron and Bemer 3000) found that the lower intensities work better than the stronger intensities. Here, MORE IS NOT BETTER. In Fact, it's the opposite. The lesser field strengths actually worked better in clinical studies.
Tip # 3 : Try to find a device with frequencies that are close to nature. The best frequency range is around .5 to 15 Hz. Nature produces pulsed magnetic frequencies in this range (ie, Schumann frequencies, 7.83, 14.2 Hz, and the polar frequencies 11.2 Hz). Further EEG studies show that brain wave patterns are in this range 5. (delta) to 15 (high Beta) Hz.
Tip # 4 : It is important that the PEMF machine switches polarity every couple minutes. This is critical because the body will acclimate to a constant north pole or south pole polarity.
Tip # 5 : Make sure the unit has a good warranty. I recommend finding a machine with at least a 3 year warranty. These devices are expensive and very sensitive, so you want to make sure you are covered.
Tip # 6 : Check to see if you will be supported AFTER you buy. Everyone is different and you may need a little help to insure you get the full benefit of the machine.
Tip # 7 : Look for a PEMF machine with Chinese Organ Clock or at least a machine that adjusts the frequencies to different times of the day. For example, you want to be energized in the morning, but at night that would keep you awake. At night you want to be relaxed. Most machines do not have this option, so its important to ask.
