What is Magnetic Therapy?
Magnetic therapy is an alternative medical practice that uses static magnets or pulsed electro magnetic therapy to alleviate many different health conditions. Many studies have shown that static magnets have little or no benefit. Decades of research on pulsed electro magnetic therapy or PEMF does offer many health benefits. PEMF has been approved by the FDA since 1979 for stimulating bone repair in non-union fractures. To answer “what is magnetic therapy?” we need to look at the differences between static magnets and pulsed electro magnetic therapy.
What is Magnetic Therapy using static magnets?
Static (stationary) magnets are often found integrated into bracelets, rings, shoe inserts, mattresses and more. These items are popular with an estimated $1billion a year being spent. Magnetic therapy dates back approximately 2000 years with folk healers in Europe and Asia trying to draw disease from the body. Today, these static magnets are sold to help ease aches and pains. Unfortunately, the magnetic fields are generally too weak to penetrate your skin and have no effect. Therapeutic static magnets usually measure 400 to 800 gauss. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) states on their website that scientific evidence does not support the use of magnets for pain relief. Studies have shown that wearing a static magnetic therapy offered no better results than wearing a placebo magnet.
What is Transcranial Magnet Stimulation (TMS)?
TMS is a type of electro magnetic therapy uses high-intensity pulses to stimulate nerve cells in a region of the brain associated with depression. In 2008, the FDA cleared a TMS device to use for major depression when response to antidepressant medication has failed. The TMS device is used under medical supervision. Studies are being done to learn more about the benefits and how long they may last. Other types of magnetics used in medicine are MRIs which uses magnetic fields to formulate 3-D images of the brain, EEG and EKG which look at the electromagnetic activity of the brain and heart. These forms of electro magnetic therapy are only available through your medical physician.
What is Magnetic Therapy using Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field (PEMF)?
Pulsed electro magnetic therapy or PEMF is distinct from magnet therapy but is often classified together. Pulsed electro magnetic therapy uses a device that pulses waves of electro magnetic energy throughout your body. PEMF therapy works naturally with our bodies own magnetic and electric fields which control the heartbeat, stimulates muscles and more. If our cells own electro magnetic fields become unbalanced, illness could result. PEMF helps correct our body’s to be in balance and stimulates it to heal naturally. Pulsed electro magnetic therapy is used to improve circulation and cell metabolism.
What is Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Therapy used for?
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Improve circulation, blood/tissue oxygenation
- Increase energy levels
- Improve mood /Relieve Stress
- Improve immunity system and help prevent infection
- Regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Help cells regenerate and detoxify
- Reduce muscle strain
- Accelerate repair of bones and soft tissues
- Balance immune system
There has been a lot of research on how pulsed electromagnetic therapy can help with different conditions. NASA researched pulsed electromagnetic therapy to help their astronauts during space travel. Magna Wave is involved in 3 different clinical studies.
Is Electro Magnetic Therapy Safe?
Pulsed electro magnetic therapy is non-invasive, 100% natural and drug free. Pulsed electro magnetic therapy is administered while you are fully dressed at a low frequency that most find relaxing. In this video, Amanda Meyers, MD explains what PEMF is and the science behind it. Electro magnetic therapy is an alternative therapy that has enabled some patients to give up dangerous, habit forming pain medications. There are many testimonials available from patients and practitioners about how pulsed electro magnetic therapy has helped. Check with your physician before starting an alternative treatment. Pulsed electro magnetic therapy may not be right for everyone. If you are pregnant or have an implanted device you should not use electro magnetic therapy.
Who offers Pulsed Electro Magnetic Therapy?
There are many medical practitioners, chiropractors and veterinarians that offer pulsed electro magnetic therapy to their patients. Magna Wav can help you find a certified practitioner in your area.
