Healing at the Cellular Level and the Future of Pain Relief
Your body has about 100 trillion cells and each of them depends on the flow of ions, or energy, in and out of the cell, which in turn creates a magnetic field. This dance of electromagnetic energy governs cellular energy production, which in turn allows the organs in your body to orchestrate the unfathomably complex wonder of your body, resulting in the experience you call life. When the electromagnetic field of any part of the body is disturbed, we experience dis-ease, which is often felt as pain, inflammation, swelling, fatigue, disorientation, depression, and the wide range of physical and psychological illness and injury.
Pulsed Magnetic Therapy (PMT) is a revolutionary treatment that produces healing at the cell level. Magnetic field therapy creates bio-currents which improve the flow of blood and oxygen to the tissues and the flow of ions and nutrients into the cells, thus improving cellular bioenergetics and healing.
Over the past 50 years, scientists from around the world have investigated the effects of Pulsed Magnetic Therapy on nearly every organ and every disease in the body, resulting in thousands of published studies, nearly all of which show benefits and many with remarkable outcomes, including the following:
- Repairs damaged and diseased tissue
- Repairs torn tendons and fractured bones
- Increases cellular oxygen absorption up to 200%
- Enhances the synthesis of proteins in cells, restoring intracellular bioenergetics
- Improves circulation by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries
- Reduces pain, swelling and inflammation
- Improves cell hydration or water content
- Stimulates pain relieving endorphins
- Stimulates the mood improving neurotransmitter serotonin
- Reduces the enzymes that create inflammation by up to 75%
- Causes the pH to become more alkaline, thereby allowing for better oxygen uptake
- Improves energy, or ATP, production in cells
- Improves ion exchange at cell membrane, thereby increasing oxygen utilization for damaged or diseased tissues
- Improves calcium transport and absorption in bones and cartilage in joints
- Works as a catalyst to increase bone density and muscle mass
- Helps the cells and organs of the body to detoxify and release chemicals and heavy metals.
THE FUTURE OF MUSCOSKELETAL PAIN RELIEF
Since Pulsed Magnetic Therapy is effective at improving the cellular conditions associated with pain, it has been used successfully to treat a range of muscle and joint problems, both acute and chronic, including:
- Low back pain
- Neck, or cervical, pain
- Shoulder pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Acute ankle sprains
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
Dr. Bassett (researcher at the Bioelectric Research Center of Columbia University) has studied pulsed magnetic fields on the cellular function of connective tissue and function and concludes with:
“A wide variety of challenging musculoskeletal disorders has been treated successfully over the past two decades. These include nerve regeneration, wound healing, graft behavior, diabetes, and myocardial and cerebral ischemia (heart attack and stroke), among other conditions. Preliminary data even suggest possible benefits in controlling malignancy (cancer).
WHAT ABOUT CANCER?
The cellular conditions that allow renegade cancer cells to grow are in some ways similar to the painful inflammation and swelling of muscle and joint pain, but more complicated because of the primitive metabolism of cancer cells. Every cell in the body is a tiny battery with a transmembrane potential, or TMP, which is a measurement of the electrical charge of the cell. In order for a cell to bring in nourishment and let metabolic waste out, the cell membrane potential needs to be fully charged. In cancer cells, the cell voltage drops from a normal of 70 millivolts to less than 40 millivolts. At this low level of cell energy only five substances can pass in or out of the cell: water, sugar, potassium, cesium, and rubidium. Oxygen cannot enter the cell.
In 1937, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi won the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells obtain energy for growth from anaerobic (no oxygen) or, fermentative, metabolism, using sugar without oxygen. Actually, cancer cells cannot grow in the presence of oxygen. In fact, many cancer therapies focus on re-establishing oxygen based metabolism within cancer cells which will cause them to undergo programmed cell death, or apoptosis. Pulsed Magnetic Therapy improves the transmembrane potential of cancer cells, helping them to activate aerobic metabolism, as well as to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, enhance immune function, and the like.
OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS
Medical doctors from around the world have studied Pulsed Magnetic Therapy in many diseases and have found promising and beneficial results with the following conditions:
- Migraine headaches
- Multiple sclerosis
- Chronic pelvic pain
- High blood pressure
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Heart disease
- Painful menses
Mindbody medicine is the future of healthcare because it focuses on promoting health in the mind and body as the best treatment for disease.Only by changing diet, using nutritional therapies, stress management and fitness training will the epidemic of chronic disease plaguing our society begin to reverse. This stands in sharp contrast to the conventional “disease care” using symptom suppressing medications. Pulsed Magnetic Therapy applies the principles of health promotion to the cell level by improving blood flow, reducing inflammation, increasing oxygenation, boosting immunity and more.
