Pulsed Electric Magnetic Frequency (PEMF) therapy
What is PEMF therapy, and what you can expect for your dog?
PEMF (Pulsed Electric Magnetic Frequency) uses pulsing magnetic fields, developed by pulsing a small amount of battery current through coils of wire, to initiate normal biological cellular reactions that result in improved circulation and provide pain relief. So, a magnetic field passing through a body will have an electromagnetic effect on each of the body’s 70 trillion cells. As a result, magnetic fields act in basic and fundamental ways on molecules and tissues. They positively affect and enhance the most basic functions of all cells.
PEMF therapy is a relaxing, healthful therapy than can reduce the need for pharmaceuticals if your dog suffers from stiffness, soreness or painful conditions. You will usually see a difference
in 1 to 2 weeks of therapy – a difference in the way your dog rises, walks and runs. They may also eat and sleep better.
What are some basic cell functions, and how do magnetic fields facilitate them?
Some of the basic actions of a cell are to generate energy to eliminate waste, to repair and regenerate itself, and perform its predetermined functions based on the cell’s type and location in the body. Magnetic fields cause or increase motion of ions and electrolytes in the tissues and fluids of the body. It’s both easy and quick to move an ion or electrolyte in a living organism using magnetic fields. This movement stimulates a vast array of chemical and electric actions in the tissues of the body, helping them to rebalance or heal themselves where necessary.
All cells need energy to function.
Ailing, damaged or compromised cells have very low energy. Through the increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields help cells increase their energy (or “charge”) by up to 500%.
Low frequency, low intensity magnetic fields have minimal effect on healthy cells
In healthy cells, these magnetic fields seem to be ignored. A cell cannot make more energy than it is capable of. In other words, a cell cannot be "overcharged" with PEMFs. Only unhealthy or unbalanced cells need and use the extra energy from therapeutic PEMFs to get better.
