Both our bodies and the Earth produce electromagnetic fields. We have felt these fields since before we were even born. One example of this is thunderstorms, which produce strong electromagnetic currents. Modern technology increases how much exposure we have to low intensity electromagnetic frequencies, too. Televisions, Wi-Fi routers and cell phones all emit weak currents as well.
Although there is no evidence that these low frequencies are harmful, our exposure to high frequency fields can cause our cells to overheat and malfunction. This can result in cellular damage. However, deliberately exposing ourselves to low intensity fields, just like those found in nature, can counteract this damage according to research. This type of intentional exposure is known as pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy, and it could be just what you need to feel better.
How Does PEMF Therapy Work?
Understanding how PEMF therapy works as a healing tool begins with knowing how electromagnetic fields work at the cellular level. A healthy cell functions at around 70 to 110 millivolts, while unhealthy cells function below 50 millivolts. For example, some illnesses, like cancer, can only thrive when our cells are operating below 50 millivolts.
First, we introduce mild electromagnetic currents into damaged cells, then, this exposure helps to restore normal cell function. PEMF therapy promotes healing by raising the body’s vibration because of the exposure to some of these currents.
What Is a PEMF Therapy Mat?
A PEMF therapy mat is a foldable mat with inner copper coils that produce low frequency magnetic currents. You can either lie on the mat or place a pad on the region that needs treatment. This will allow these frequencies to enter your body and target cells, muscle tissue, and bones. Thankfully, these benefits add up the more you use the mat.
What Are the Benefits of the PEMF Therapy Mat?
Aside from a PEMF mat being easily portable, it also offers many health benefits. Some include:
- Improved circulation
- Pain relief
- Improved post-injury and post-surgery healing
- Stress reduction
- Less inflammation
- Increased immunity
- Better mood
- Improved sleep/sleep management
- Remove toxins
- Reduced fatigue
- Nerve regeneration
- Improved muscle tone
- Weight control
The list could go on and on. However, the important takeaway is that these benefits can tie together in ways that promote improved overall health and well-being. For example, inflammation and chronic pain go hand-in-hand, as do obesity and fatigue. In addition, reducing stress and anxiety can help those with insomnia.
Thankfully, these benefits can also tie into the healing and prevention of different diseases and conditions. These include:
- Heart disease
- Any condition that causes pain
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Parkinson’s disease
- And many more
Although PEMF therapy may appear to be a novel development, however, for those who make use of it, it isn’t. Both Europe and the US utilize this safe type of therapy regularly. To date, there have been more than 7,000 clinical trials and studies that can back up how effective the therapy is. Impressively, some of the studies were even conducted by NASA and countless healthcare professionals. PEMF therapy offers tons of potential for healing. Plus, it can protect your body from damaging electromagnetic fields. So, are you ready to find out more?
