Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)

Elderly Pacient Receiveing Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) at LifeWorks

When the cells of the body have been injured, such as with trauma, toxin overload, or even cancer, they may lose their ability to generate proper energy levels to maintain their health.

When this occurs, the cells heal slowly or not at all. The result may be swelling, inflammation, chronic pain, or poor bone healing.

This is where modalities like PEMF come in.

What is PEMF?

PEMF provides gentle and healing low-frequency pulsed magnetic fields to stimulate energy production within cells or injured areas. Without this energy, the cells are like dead batteries; lifeless and unable to effectively heal themselves and generate good health within the body.

Producing energy is the primary function of mitochondria, organelles that exist in large numbers in most cells. Mitochondria are aptly known as the “powerhouse of the cell.” However, when the body is constantly fighting off an infection or it’s in a constant state of chronic inflammation, the cells just don’t have the energy reserves to carry out all their duties.

If you are experiencing ongoing pain, chronic illness, tissues, or bones that won’t heal, a natural therapy like PEMF is a safe and effective way to help restore the critical energy-producing function of the cells so healing can take place.

How Does PEMF Work?

PEMF is an FDA approved non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment. There have been over 2,000 studies done to date that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of PEMF treatments. (recent studies regularly updated here).

PEMF treatments utilize a sophisticated, computer-controlled device along with an applicator, to direct a series of natural magnetic pulses that pass through injured tissue and bones. Each magnetic pulse produces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair, resulting in increased energy levels so that the body’s self-healing mechanism is operating at optimum efficiency.

How is PEMF Administered

Your practitioner will adjust the PEMF signal level, duration, and frequency of treatments depending on your particular condition.

During treatment, the patient will relax comfortably either sitting or lying down. The PEMF device may be applied to a particular spot(s) or you might lie down on a whole-body PEMF mat.

We use pulsed electromagnetic field therapy to help the body recover from many illnesses and conditions, with outstanding results.

What does a PEMF Treatment Feel Like?

Some patients report a feeling of warmth or enhanced circulation of the treatment area but you may not feel anything.

There is no pain involved during treatment. The currents induced are very tiny but your cells are very sensitive to the receipt of this beneficial healing energy.

After treatment, any swelling will likely be reduced and you may notice less stiffness and many report relief of pain.

Benefits of PEMF

These are just some of the many benefits PEMF treatments can provide:

  • Reduced chronic inflammation
  • Increased circulation
  • Increased blood and tissue oxygenation
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved energy
  • Increased blood and lymph flow
  • Accelerated repair of tissue and bone
  • Stimulation of the immune system
  • Improved uptake of nutrients
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Enhanced muscular function
  • Improved liver function
  • Reduced frequency of nighttime urination
  • Improved surgery recovery time
  • Improved the body’s ability to detoxify

Conditions that can Benefit From PEMF

We use PEMF therapy for many conditions and areas of recovery because it works so effectively at the cellular level to help the body heal itself.

Speed Healing with PEMF!

PEMF offers enhanced wound repair and tissue healing by stimulating and restoring the cells of the body, allowing the body to heal faster.

Because PEMF strengthens the cells, increases circulation, and allows for a healthy inflammatory response, the healing process can proceed at an accelerated rate.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
