PEMF Therapy is making a lot of waves in the wellness industry, as it offers an alternative to prescription drugs and medical procedures which often have unwanted side effects. If you've never heard about PEMF, but you're wondering what's it all about, or even if you've never heard about it, in this post we look at what PEMF is, what PEMF Therapy is all about, and ultimately how it can help your body heal naturally from common ailments.
What Does PEMF Stand For?
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. A pulsed electromagnetic field consist of low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses. Another acronym that is often used is PEMFT (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy).
What Is PEMF Therapy?
PEMF therapy is a proven and natural approach to health and wellness using low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues and improve your health. Numerous health challenges can benefit from PEMF. And there are none of the harmful side effects commonly associated with prescription drugs and medical procedures.
What Is PEMF Therapy Good For?
More and more people are becoming excited about PEMF therapy because it helps to reduce inflammation and reduce pain, which are common symptoms of several chronic diseases.
It has been demonstrated that PEMF has numerous health and well being benefits, offering support for (and/or natural optimization of):
There are currently well over 30,000 studies on the effectiveness of PEMF therapy, and it’s approved for many conditions by the FDA.
There are several ways that PEMF therapy is currently being applied, including:
What Is A PEMF Therapy Device or Machine?
PEMF therapy devices and machines (also often referred to as PEMFT systems) are the equipment that emit the electromagnetic pulses.
There are several types of devices currently on the market. PEMF devices that are currently available differ in design, features, use, the waveform, the frequency, and the intensity they deliver, and of course, price.
How Much Does PEMF Therapy or Treatment Cost?
With currently available PEMF therapy machines and systems, such as iMRS, Magna-Wave, Bemer, Ampcoil, Omnium, Pulse, Healthyline, Healthywave, Earthpulse, Oska, Flexpulse, Miramate and others, users typically either lay on a mat or plug the device into a larger system for a treatment that carries a price ranging anywhere from $1,400 - $22,000, depending on the specific equipment.
Redhealth wearable PEMF devices are truly revolutionary and provide better, smarter PEMF therapy. They are the first, and currently the only, whole mind-body health and well-being devices that are compact, wearable, rechargeable, and highly impact/water resistant designed for personal use. And they are notably less expensive than other devices, with prices ranging between $290 - $597!
Who Should Not Use PEMF Therapy?
You should always talk with your doctor when introducing a new therapy into your lifestyle, and you should not stop taking medications that are prescribed by your doctor without first consulting with them.
If the PEMF device must be placed near an implanted electrical device, such as a pacemaker, cochlear implant, or intrathecal pump, you should avoid PEMF therapy. While it is rare, the electromagnetic field of PEMF therapy could interfere with the performance of these types of devices.
It is recommended that pregnant women should also not use PEMF devices.
Individuals with varicose veins, recently had surgery, or have any condition that requires the use of blood thinners should avoid PEMF therapy
