The basic technology is more than a century old
Traditional medicine treats the body by chemical means primarily. In stimulating the cell membrane, PEMF effects it electrically. The trillions of cells inside our bodies communicate bio-electromagnetically. The human cell functions as a capacitor. PEMF causes sluggish cells to activate, opening/closing in a fashion similar to hydrostatic pump, absorbing nutrients and water while emitting carbon dioxide and toxins.
PEMF is a technology more than 100 years old. It was FDA cleared for bone growth in 1979, and for post-operative edema and pain in 1987. In 2004, PEMF was cleared as an adjunct to cervical fusion surgery, and in 2011 it was cleared as a treatment for depressed individuals who are unresponsive to medication.
PEMF surged in popularity in recent decades after NASA employed it for retaining and restoring astronauts’ bone and muscle.
Doctor of Last Resort
Dr. Gary Ryan, DC, has administered PEMF for more than eight years. He’s also personally ‘pulsed’ during that time, part of a training regimen propelling an impressive record as a master swimmer — a sport in which he had never participated until 2006 (see “Meet Dr. Ryan“).
His consultation requests many times involve people frustrated that no matter what they’ve tried, their health problem persists.
Whether it be the MRSA virus, leukemia, diabetic neuropathy or orthopedic pain, PEMF is not a cure, Dr. Ryan contends, but rather “a means of charging the cells so that the body is able to heal itself.”
The Science Behind PEMF Cellular Exercise
We use the top-grade PEMF machine on the market, one manufactured by Pulse Centers, which provides from low to high voltage with separate controls for frequency and intensity. The unit also provides simultaneous use of two body-application accessories, such as seen in photo at right. PEMF can be targeted to specific areas, or applied to the entire body.
