Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields – commonly abbreviated to PEMF — are a non-invasive, non-medication medical treatment. PEMFs prompt the patient’s body to heal itself by recharging the body’s cells and promoting healthy electromagnetic communications between cells. In the seventy years since PEMFs were studied in earnest, studies and technological advances have rendered it effective and provably beneficial. And Teslafit’s machines and applicators are directed towards clinics and sports facilities that wish to provide their customers with the benefits of PEMF therapy.
What Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Stimulation?
PEMF therapy – also known as Low-Field Magnetic Stimulation (LFMS) therapy – is therapy that exposes the body to concentrated magnetic pulses. The first modern-day PEMF therapies involved placing patients in Hemholtz coils, which were strongly influenced by Tesla coils. Currently, the majority of PEMF devices resemble yoga mats, but PEMF mats contain multiple flat coils which generate an even electromagnetic field. Smaller, tube-like applicators allow patients to target specific parts of the body, such as joints or the brain.
PEMF originates from 6,000 years ago, when Hindus applied lodestones to ill people as a means of treatment. The Chinese employed similar tactics 4,000 years ago, as did the Egyptians and the Greeks during their emergence and discoveries. PEMF was not thoroughly researched until the mid-1950’s. Since 2007, the FDA has approved many PEMF machines as stimulation devices to treat fractures and depression.
How Does Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Stimulation Work?
Our bodies’ cells require a voltage range of 20 to 25 millivolts to function properly. When the voltage falls below 15 millivolts, cells do not work properly, leading to illnesses and cells malfunctioning. PEMF raises the cells’ currents with its magnetic pulses, which reduces or stops the release of inflammatory receptors. When cells’ voltage reached 50 millivolts can heal and recover far more efficiently.
TeslaFit products apply two types of electromagnetic pulse: a “primary” pulse with a frequency between 1 Hz and 5 Hz, and a “background” 10 Hz pulse. The two programs installed on TeslaFit devices determine the length of the treatment: an intense two-minute application or a more-evenly distributed thirty-minute application.
What Treatments Are Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Used For?
PEMF itself does not “cure” a condition or illness. Providing the body’s cells with a charge prompts the cells to detoxify the body and repair themselves, which has indirect benefits. PEMF can repair brain cells, reducing the impact of mental issues such as stress. PEMF has also been linked to increased focus and clarity with the brain. Healthy cells also make it simpler for patients to get restful sleep. Cells repairing themselves and ejecting toxins fortifies the body’s immune system. And the increased efficiency in cells’ functions and communications can lead to increased energy levels and metabolism rates.
TeslaFit products are designed primarily for patients dealing with chronic pain and physical injuries. Our smallest applicators can be placed directly on the affected body part, and our PEMF mats focus on the patient’s back instead of the entire body. This does not mean that the effects are limited to these two categories: the frequencies that our products emit can help calm and relax patients’ minds, yielding effects such as lowered anxiety and preparation for a fulfilling night’s sleep.
Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Stimulation Safe?
Though PEMF is a safe procedure when performed by a medical professional, PEMF does have side-effects which patients should know prior to treatment. No person who has electrical implants should receive PEMF; the magnetic fields could cause the electric implants to malfunction or deactivate, resulting in severe injury or death. The first ten minutes of PEMF sessions increase cells’ oxygen absorption, triggering a detoxification effect. This can cause nausea, headaches, fatigue, and muscle aches. These side-effects can be mitigated by drinking plenty of water prior to treatment as well as repeated PEMF treatments to build up tolerance to the therapy. Patients with poor dietary or nutritional habits may experience weakness, agitation, dizziness, fatigue, and increased urination. Increasing the consumption of healthy foods can prevent these side effects. And PEMF is not advised for pregnant women and for patients with heart-related health problems.
