A new breakthrough in medical technology called Pulsed Electrical Magnetic Frequency, P.E.M.F., is having a profound effect on patients suffering from Chronic Degenerative Knee Pain, Neck, Back, Hip Pain, Peripheral Neuropathy, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Plantar Fasciitis. A pulsed magnetic current penetrates the surface of the skin and goes deep, right to the damaged tissue. The tissue responds to the gentle waves as each cell is immediately oxygenated which increases cellular function and stability.
P.E.M.F. has been used for nearly 40 years mostly in Europe and has had over 2000 papers published on it showing how it repairs damaged tissue, decreases inflammation, improves circulation and lymphatic flow. This means that there is a good chance P.E.M.F. could be your solution for your pain, allowing you to live a more active and productive lifestyle.
Dr. Albert Szert-Gyorgi, a Nobel Prize winner stated: “Edema and inflammation are reduced inside cells when there is a replacement of sodium for potassium. These findings make the P.E.M.F. devices one of the best anti-inflammatory and edema reduction methods.”
Dr. Oz promotes PEMF therapy.
Dr. Oz opened the show on Nov. 16, 2011 saying he’s more excited over the topic on today’s show than any other show he’s done this season. He wants to share a new therapy that he is calling a cure for chronic pain of all types.
There is a raging electrical storm inside our bodies. Electrical signals control every nerve, every muscle every cell and every thought in our bodies. The neurons that send and receive these electrical signals dictate how we experience pain and how we experience pleasure.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMT) is a burgeoning treatment in pain management that has provided life-changing results. Patients are reporting that they are feeling better, sleeping longer and the pain is eased.
The FDA has approved magnetic therapy for broken bones, depression, post-operative pain. Dr. Oz says PEMT can reduce or even erase our pain.
Not to be confused with refrigerator magnets, PEMT does not use static magnets but pulsing waves of electromagnetic fields that have the ability to penetrate deep into the body where heating pads, massage, lotions and creams cannot reach.
Where there’s pain there is inflammation. Pulsing, moving magnetic fields reach and effect cartilage, bones and nerves. It turns on signals in the body and, Dr. Oz says, can change inflammation.
James Dillard, MD, prescribes magnetic therapy to his patients as an answer to pain. Dr. Dillard says magnetic therapy increases circulation, aids in healing can provide benefit where pharmaceuticals, deep injections and surgery has failed.
Dr. Dillard says one out of every three Americans are suffering from chronic pain. Many patients want are ready for something different, are ready to step away from the drugs and surgery.
PEMT provides electrical pulses which go deep inside the body. In an animation, Dr. Oz showed blood platelets that had become stacked due to inflammation and chronic pain become separated to flow more freely with magnetic therapy applied. The platelet separation increases circulation and the patient feels better. The PEMT quiets the nerves to reduce pain.
