Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy

 

Following these introductory paragraphs you will find an impartial list of the top eight PEMF devices based on accumulated ratings for each product. We take a bulk data analysis approach to formulating our review. The most popular comments and concerns are listed as such.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is a self-administered, non-invasive treatment option proven to reduce pain, and speed healing in a way that is better then or on par with surgical intervention. PEMF also demonstrates the uncanny ability to provoke stem cell differentiation.

It’s no secret that everything in the body starts out as an electromagnetic impulse carried along the nervous system to every organ, gland or muscle group. Whether you’re walking, talking or unconsciously signalling the release of anti-inflammatory biochemicals, electromagnetism plays a role.

The problem is that a sedentary lifestyle neglects some of the most basic electromagnetic pathways, leading to atrophy of the surrounding neural tissue. Combine this with a bad diet or high doses of electromagnetic pollution and you have a deadly recipe for miscommunication between the heart, brain and body.

Without proper communication it can become a lot more difficult to signal the release of biochemicals for example. PEMF can reduce pain and speed healing by exposing the body to a uniform electromagnetic signal, stimulating surrounding neural tissue, and dilating blood vessels to improve transportation of vital compounds.
