Abstract

Extracorporeal pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has shown the ability to regenerate tissue by promoting cell proliferation. In the present study, we investigated for the first time whether PEMF treatment could improve the myocardial ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury and uncovered its underlying mechanisms.

In conclusion, this is the first study suggesting that PEMF treatment could improve cardiac dysfunction through inhibiting cell apoptosis. Furthermore, in vitro, we first clarified PEMF still plays a profound effect on improving cell death and removing excess ROS via regulating apoptosis-related proteins and Akt/eNOS pathway. All these findings highlight that PEMF would be applied as a potentially powerful therapy for I/R injury cure.

Abstract

Cancer is one of the most common causes of death worldwide. Available treatments are associated with numerous side effects and only a low percentage of patients achieve complete remission. Therefore, there is a strong need for new therapeutic strategies. In this regard, pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy presents several potential advantages including non‐invasiveness, safety, lack of toxicity for non‐cancerous cells, and the possibility of being combined with other available therapies. Indeed, PEMF stimulation has already been used in the context of various cancer types including skin, breast, prostate, hepatocellular, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, bladder, thyroid, and colon cancer in vitro and in vivo. At present, only limited application of PEMF in cancer has been documented in humans. In this article, we review the experimental and clinical evidence of PEMF therapy discussing future perspectives in its use in oncology

 

In conclusion, only two clinical studies have used PEMF therapy for cancer treatment. These studies show that PEMF therapy is safe and promising compared to other available cancer therapies. In the future, PEMFs could be used not only as primary therapy but also in combination with other common antineoplastic therapies. Given that new portable and affordable PEMF devices are increasingly available on the market, future controlled clinical studies are expected to further determine the potential of PEMF therapy in oncology.

Abstract

Inflammation is a complex process involving distinct but overlapping biochemical and molecular events that are highly regulated. Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is increasingly used to treat pain and edema associated with inflammation following surgery involving soft tissue. However, the molecular and cellular effects of PEMF therapy on pathways involved in the resolution of inflammation are poorly understood. Using cell culture lines relevant to trauma-induced inflammation of the skin (human dermal fibroblasts, human epidermal keratinocytes, and human mononuclear cells), we investigated the effect of PEMF on gene expression involved in the acute and resolution phases of inflammation. We found that PEMF treatment was followed by changes in the relative amount of messenger (m)RNAs encoding enzymes involved in heme catabolism and removal of reactive oxygen species, including an increase in heme oxygenase 1 and superoxide dismutase 3 mRNAs, in all cell types examined 2 hours after PEMF treatment. A relative increase in mRNAs encoding enzymes involved in lipid mediator biosynthesis was also observed, including an increase in arachidonate 12- and 15-lipoxygenase mRNAs in dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes, respectively. The relative amount of both of these lipoxygenase mRNAs was elevated in mononuclear cells following PEMF treatment relative to nontreated cells. PEMF treatment was also followed by changes in the mRNA levels of several cytokines. A decrease in the relative amount of interleukin 1 beta mRNA was observed in mononuclear cells, similar to that previously reported for epidermal keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts. Based on our results, we propose a model in which PEMF therapy may promote chronic inflammation resolution by mediating gene expression changes important for inhibiting and resolving inflammation.

 

Conclusion

Understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of inflammation is important for the development of new therapies to treat important health conditions such as inflammatory pain and chronic inflammation. PEMF is a biophysical therapeutic modality based on the delivery of pulsed electromagnetic fields. Although it has been in use for over several decades for the treatment of inflammation, little is known about its biological mechanism of action. Findings from the current study support previously reported data, suggesting PEMF treatment leads to gene expression changes of the factors involved in regulating inflammation, including inflammation resolution. Based on these results, we hypothesize that PEMF-associated analgesia reported in clinical studies may be due to such gene expression changes. Further studies are warranted to further test this hypothesis and to gain additional insight into the mechanisms of action of this novel analgesic modality.

What is the right PEMF machine for me?

 
There are a few factors you need to keep in mind when choosing the PEMF machine that is right for you.  When considering different machines, you need to look at it as a complete system; the chassis or electronic part that creates the signal, and the coil or mat that reproduces the magnetic field from the signal the chassis is sending to it.
xxx
Another factor to keep in mind is that “disease” breaks down into two basic categories; those arising from pathogens coming from outside the body, and those from deficiencies arising from within the body.  This is important to understand because the frequencies needed to assist with each type of disease are in completely different areas of the total range of helpful frequencies.
Because disease breaks down into two basic categories, so does the frequency range in order to deal with them most effectively.  There are two types of PEMF sessions; frequency ranges that decimate pathogens (disease arising from outside the body) and frequency ranges that signal our cells to accomplish tasks they would naturally do but help them to it better or faster (disease arising from within the body). 
xxx
So, when choosing a PEMF system, the first and foremost consideration is the frequency range the system is capable of producing.  Since there are no pathogen decimating frequencies below 50hz, it’s important to choose a machine that has a much higher range if this is the purpose you are getting a machine.  Even if you currently only need the cell signaling frequencies (generally below 50hz), you should consider the use you might need it for in the future, should you acquire a pathogen you need to deal with.
xxx
The second thing you should consider is whether the system uses a coil or a mat. 
                                      
Coils will generally have a wider range of frequencies they can reproduce, while mats will spread out the magnetic field over a wider area of your body.  Coils, provided the chassis is powerful enough, will penetrate deeper into your body which is very helpful for decimating pathogens.  Mats, by spreading out the magnetic field, deliver cell signaling frequencies to a wider area of the body with each session.  Coils are the best of both worlds simply because they will reproduce a wider range of frequencies with a wider range of intensities for delivering those frequencies.
xxx
 Third, consider the power of the chassis.  As we have explained in other posts, decimating pathogens is like a singer breaking a wine glass.  Often, no matter how loud they sing, natural voice alone cannot break the wine glass.  But when that same singer uses an amplifier they easily break the glass.  With a PEMF system, you need the power like the singer needs the amplifier.  Power also is needed to penetrate deeper into the body, with a strong enough magnetic field, where the pathogens can be causing their harm.
xxx
And finally, you should consider the “form factor”, or how the chassis is packaged.  Large bulky cases mean you have to store the machine away between sessions.  This takes time to set up before a session and put away after a session.  This can lead to inconvenience, which in turn leads to it being too much trouble to go through for a session, which then leads to missing sessions.  A small chassis can be setup all the time, making it very easy and convenient to have a session without having to plan ahead or spend time before and after a session putting the chassis away.
xxx
Choosing a system with these things in mind will give you the best possible PEMF experience.

Don’t push the river, it flows on its own.   ~Chinese proverb

Sometimes we just can’t wait.  We feel we must make things happen…now!  It’s OK to be a driving force to get things done.  But too often we don’t stop to realize there are many things in life that shouldn’t be rushed…can’t be rushed if you truly want the best outcome.  Part of having good balance in life is knowing when we must let the course of events unfold as they should, at their own pace and time.  Learn to step back and enjoy the flow of the river, and of life.

PEMF wellness in two ways.

golden-apple-300x286[1]Using PEMF, wellness is achieved in two ways:  Removing pathogens that cause disease originating from outside the body, and assisting optimum body cell function so disease originating from within the body can be alleviated.
PEMF can work to facilitate both of these — if the magnetic field is in the proper frequency range.
The pathogen killing frequencies are generally in the triple digit range, while the “cell signaling” frequencies, the ones that assist the body to perform optimally, are generally found below 50 Hz.
Pathogen killing frequencies are like antibiotics, cell signaling frequencies are like multi-vitamins.
When choosing a PEMF devise, be aware that the brands that will only produce frequencies between 1 Hz and 50 Hz (actually most brands out there) will only help with one of the ways to achieved wellness using PEMF.  Choose wisely.  Don’t be fooled into thinking a multi-vitamin will cure an infection.

“Modified Tesla coil”?

Really?? Seriously? Hey AmpCoil – how gullible do you think people are?

Nikola-Tesla-Coil

This is a Tesla coil!  And that is Nikola Tesla.

We started by asking, “Really? Seriously?”, so really, let’s get serious…
We believe the consumer nor the general PEFM industry is served by sales baloney, and this is about as good of an example as we’ve seen of just that…sales baloney.  Just because a Tesla coil and a PEMF coil are both coils does not mean that one is a derivative of the other, any more than a tire is a derivative of a steering while just because they’re both “wheels” and both can be used to steer a car.  Also, AmpCoil uses “modified Tesla coil” to imply their coil is somehow unique in the PEMF world.  Their coil is simply a coil of copper wire.  Other brands are coils of copper wire.  If AmpCoil’s coil is somehow a “modified Tesla coil”, then so are all the other brands of coils!
So let’s take a look at what a Tesla coil really is and see if there is any relationship between that and a PEMF coil.
xx
From Wikipedia, we find, The Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit designed by inventor Nikola Tesla in 1891.  It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity.①

Tesla used these circuits to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting, phosphorescence, X-ray generation, high frequency alternating current phenomena, electrotherapy, and the transmission of electrical energy without wires.②  Tesla coil circuits were used commercially in spark gap radio transmitters for wireless telegraphy③ until the 1920s, and in medical equipment such as electrotherapy④ and violet ray devices⑤.  A Tesla coil is a radio frequency⑥ oscillator that drives an air-core double-tuned resonant transformer to produce high voltages⑦ at low currents.  

Tesla coils can produce output voltages from 50 kilovolts to several million volts for large coils⑧.  The alternating current output is in the low radio frequency range, usually between 50 kHz and 1 MHz⑨. Although some oscillator-driven coils generate a continuous alternating current, most Tesla coils have a pulsed output; the high voltage consists of a rapid string of pulses of radio frequency⑩ alternating current.”

① A Tesla coil is used to produce electricity, a PEMF coil is used to produce a magnetic field.

② A Tesla coil is used for all of these things (none of which you would ever want your PEMF coil to do) wirelessly…but you connected your AmpCoil coil to the AmpCoil case with what?  A wire?

③ Radio transmitters, telegraphs…both wireless.  How does that have anything to do with a PEMF coil.

④ PEMF is NOT electrotherapy!  It is frequency therapy delivered via a magnetic field.  Big difference!

⑤ Violet rays are in the light spectrum.  PEMF is about as far away from that spectrum as you can get.

⑥ Radio frequencies are, like the light spectrum, are about as far away from PEMF frequencies as you can get.

A Tesla coil is a high voltage and high frequency device, a PEMF coil is a low voltage and low frequency device.

⑧ Like we said, Tesla coils produce HIGH voltage.  50 kilovolts and up.  That’s 50,000 volts!  If that’s what would work, we can all give up our PEMF machines and just go sit under electrical transmission lines!

⑨ Tesla coils produce radio frequencies.  50 kHz and up.  That’s 50,000 Hz!  If that’s what would work, we can all give up our PEMF machines and just go sit next to a radio broadcast tower near the electrical transmission lines we’re under!

⑩ Just because it’s pulsed does not mean it’s PEMF.

If you modify a circle by giving it corners your have created a square, now its no longer a circle…  its a square. AmpCoil apparently thinks they can bamboozle you into believing their squares are better than anyone else’s squares by calling them “modified circles”.  We think you’re starter than that.

xxxxxx
xxxxxx
One more thing to understand about AmpCoil’s use of “modified Tesla coil” to pull one over on you…

What’s in a name?
There are two accepted methods for measuring magnetic field strength, gauss (G) and tesla (T).  Gauss is named after Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (born 1777) and telsa is named after Nikola Telsa (born 1856).

It is a little like measuring in inches or centimeters, Celsius or Fahrenheit.  Each has areas where they work better or easier.  Each can be converted into the other.

1T=10,000G

To say that a coil is a “modified Tesla coil”, just because magnetic fields can be measured in tesla (T), is like saying an amplifier is a “modified voltage circuit” just because power is measured in Volts (V).

Really, you should have an apple a day!

Literally an apple a day has tremendous health benefits. We have all heard an apple a day keeps the doctor away’, and often those old adages from our grandparents day have real and practical value. Over time though some of the meaning gets lost and maybe the thought behind ‘an apple a day’ in modern day society might mean an apple a day keeps the dentist away. Most of my young students will tell me that they see the logic in chewing an apple might be good for their teeth, or they might even have some knowledge about how fruit is nutritious. But rarely are they aware of the actual type and kinds of vitamins that are in an apple. And most especially they do not know that the seeds and fibrous center of the apple has nutrients that could be preventative of some increased modern day killers like cancer and diabetes. The seeds of an apple contain the little known vitamin B17 and the fibrous center is an excellent colon cleanser.
 
Based on a daily value per 100g one apple provides; 8% vitamin C, 3%Vitamin K, 2% vitamin B6, 2% riboflavin, 3% potassium, 2%manganese, 1% calcium, 1% iron, 1%protein, and 10% dietary fiber. An apple helps in weight loss, facilitates digestion, improves eyesight, lowers cholesterol levels, controls blood sugar levels, helps to prevent cancer, is useful in treating anemia and reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The real value of an apple lies in it’s organic compounds. It is packed with phytonutrients and flavonoids like querctin, epicatechin, phioridzin, and various other polyphenolic compounds. It is important to know at this point that unless it is freshly pressed apple juice loses most of its nutritional value in the bottling process,
 
Armed with this knowledge one might think everyone would be eating an apple or two a day. But it seems that we Americans tend to put our preventative healthcare on the back burner until it’s too late, I for one am guilty of this. Now that I am older, wiser (hopefully) and more balanced in my knowledge of care for my health and the health of those that I love, with a desire to find the most natural, non-invasive, and effective methods for maintaining good health, I would like to share with others the things that I have learned. This is why I have gotten involved with the general promotion of PEMF technology and specifically the production of the ELEMENT as a truly affordable way to bring this technology to everyone.

How PEMF Therapy Works

PEMF Therapy: What can it do for you?
PEMF (Pulse Electromagnetic Field) therapy has been around for well over four decades and thousands of studies showing its benefit have been done (NASA alone did over 10,000 studies).  Out of those studies we now have several areas of specific therapy the FDA has approved the use of PEMF.  These areas are 1) bone healing [1979], 2) urinary incontinence therapy [1989], 3) muscle stimulation [1989], 4) cervical fusion therapy [2004], 5) depression and anxiety treatment [2006], and 6) therapy for brain cancer [2011].  Although not specifically FDA approved, we also know from these studies that PEMF therapy can help reduce or alleviate arthritis pain, neuropathy, back pain, joint pain, osteoporosis, and inflammation, as well as increase blood circulation (which helps with a myriad of conditions).  There are also many, many anecdotal studies that can be found online of how it has helped or alleviated the symptoms of Lyme, edema, MS, and many other maladies along with all of the issues mentioned above.  A review of the current FDA approvals and the vast number of studies show PEMF is a powerful up and coming therapeutic tool,
Hidden messages can have a meaning
PEMF Therapy: How do the machines work?
The way PEMF machines work is really quite simple.  A signal of a particular frequency (whatever frequency is needed for a particular ailment) is sent from a signal generator (sometimes built into the machine itself) to an amplifier which boosts the signal to a usable level and sends that signal out to a coil of wire, which like any coil of wire creates a magnetic field around the coil.
Look below for truth
PEMF Therapy: How does the magnetic field work with the body?
The way PEMF works to alleviate ailments in the body or works with the body to improve various structures is not quite so simple.  PEMF sessions break down into two basic categories or types of sessions.  The first type is applying frequencies to kill pathogens in the body that originated from outside the body and are causing the body harm.  The second type is applying frequencies that give the body signals at the cellular level to perform tasks they naturally do but need some assistance due to the deterioration our bodies go through with age, improper nutrients, stress, and/or toxins that are difficult to avoid in modern life.  The first type is like taking an antibiotic, the second type is like taking a multivitamin.

     
How does PEMF get rid of the bad things from outside the body?  To understand this, an understanding of resonance needs to be accomplished first.  Resonance is a phenomenon in which a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at a specific preferential frequency.
This is demonstrated by the singer breaking a wine glass. 

When the singer creates a specific note (frequency) with their voice that is the resonant frequency of the wine glass, the glass will oscillate (vibrate) with greater amplitude (volume).  The louder the note, the more the vibration.  Soon, the glass can no longer withstand the shaking and it breaks.  The glass has its own resonant frequency (natural, or preferential frequency) due to the structure of the glass (material, shape, size, etc.)  Other notes can be much louder without breaking the glass because they are a different frequency and therefore are not combining with the glass’s natural frequency to oscillate with greater amplitude.  Two or more different frequencies (as long as any one of those is not the natural frequency in the glass) will play nicely side by side, each happy to have its part of the glass.   But if any frequency matches the natural frequency of the glass it will combine with that natural frequency to increase the oscillation of the glass.  Everything has a natural resonance frequency.  From the smallest things like an atom or molecule, to the largest things…the earth and our solar system, even the Milky Way galaxy.  By knowing the natural resonance frequency of a pathogen, you can oscillate it to greater amplitude and break it just like the singer breaks the glass.  Because the natural resonance frequency of each thing is different, you a can “pinpoint” the forces so that only the pathogen is broken.   Once the pathogen is killed (shattered like a wine glass) it cannot do its pathogen thing to you and your body can expel the dead material, although usually using a detox protocol is necessary to accomplish this.   Now you might ask, “But what if I accidentally picked a frequency that is the natural resonance frequency of my cells?  Wouldn’t that make them explode too?”  Well, yes it would.  But fortunately for us, the natural resonance of the living cells within our body are all well above the range that any PEMF machine will produce.  Although the FDA has approved the use of PEMF for only a few things, they have gone so far as to say that there are no frequencies within the range of what these machines will produce that can cause any harm.  Your cells are safe with PEMF but you may want to watch out for that microwave!
         God is love
This brings us to the second use of PEMF; to help the body do what it does naturally, but needs a little help, maybe because it isn’t working up to full capacity or maybe just to help speed healing up a bit.  An example of the latter would be bone healing.  The body will naturally heal a broken bone, but by applying PEMF therapy, the time needed to heal is significantly reduced.   In cases where the body is not working to full capacity, such as blood circulation, or maybe at all, such as neuropathy (not healing itself due to nerve damage) PEMF is a much safer way of dealing with these issues compared to drugs in order to stimulate repair or at least alleviate symptoms
