Top PEMF Mats And Therapy Devices
We spend a lot of time on this site discussing the dangers of unwanted EMF radiation, and looking at ways of protecting you and your family from its harmful effects. But as part of that discussion it is important to look at positive uses of electromagnetic fields. And one of the primary beneficial applications of EMF is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy.
Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy Dangerous?
One question I get a lot is “Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy dangerous?” and in this post I hope to answer this question with a simple Yes or No answer. To start this though, I should explain what Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (Forever now known as PEMF to save my sanity…) is and how it works.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields have always existed, in fact the Earth is constantly generating one, in basis, we are always exposed to a pulsating field of electromagnetic energy. However, due to the broad spectrum of other Electromagnetic Fields that currently inhabit the air; the effects of the PEMF are lost in so much “Static Electromagnetic energy”. For a large amount of human history, we were unaware of the benefits this PEMF was generating, the realization dawned on scientists after the first few successful space missions due to the effects that extended time in space were having on astronauts.
Upon return to earth, many astronauts were noted with symptoms of depression, bone loss, decreased metabolism, impaired perception and muscle degeneration. Initially, Scientists were baffled; with nothing to work with they could not explain what was causing these rather extreme symptoms. After a period of extensive study however, it came to light that the PEMF created by the earth was integral to the well being of the human body.
It was shown that the Earths magnetism is essential in the upkeep of our body’s cells, helping to maintain the cellular health. Without it, symptoms like chronic fatigue and exhaustion can become commonplace, meaning that we need regular exposure to PEMF.
Benefits of PEMF Machines
However, as I stated earlier, the earth’s PEMF is mostly lost in the mass of Electromagnetic fields we have created with modern technology, so scientists realized we needed to find an alternate means to increase our exposure to PEMF’s. Through this, came the very first PEMF device, which according to Scientists would carry the following benefits:
- Improves sleeping patterns, allowing for a deeper, more restful sleep.
- Aids in Nerve regeneration if they are damaged.
- Helps to detoxify the body.
- Enhances the body’s natural resistances by boosting the white cell count in the body.
- Increases Bone density.
- Increases pain threshold.
- Helps the body to close wounds at an advanced rate.
- Enhances circulation.
- Improves mental clarity.
Best PEMF Machines
There are a number of PEMF devices available to consumers. One type is PEMF mats which are great for treating pain across the large area of your back. Other types of PEMF equipment are smaller units that are designed to provide spot therapy in specific locations where you experience pain. Here are some of the top PEMF machines available:

How Do Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy Devices Work?
How does the PEMF machine work then? As each pulse of electromagnetic energy runs through the body, it improves the cells micro-circulation, simultaneously increasing the blood flow and amount of oxygen available to each cell, which in turn improves the electron transport chain efficiency. In turn this causes the ATP in cells to increase, making them function at optimal levels, making the body expel toxins, absorb nutrients and produce more energy.
As you can see, the potential benefits from this treatment perfectly combats the symptoms many of the Astronauts claimed to be suffering from when being away from earth for extended periods of time. So perhaps, these devices are the way forward? Perhaps, but first, are there any side effects and is it safe?
As a large plus for the therapy, there are no recorded side effects of PEMF therapy; however it is advised if you fit any of the following descriptions, that you should not use PEMF:
- If you are pregnant.
- If you posses any organ transplants.
- If you have a pacemaker or any other electrical implants.
Or, if you fit any of these descriptions, you should check with your Doctor before using a PEMF device:
- If you suffer from epilepsy.
- If you suffer from any serious fungal or bacterial infections.
- Running a Fever higher than 100.5 Degrees Fahrenheit (38 Degrees Celsius)
Secondly, it has been proven that a PEMF has no adverse effects on the human body regardless of age, so it is safe to use on young children and babies. However, many patients have claimed feelings of discomfort for the first time they use PEMF therapy, but rest assured that this feeling is purely due to the detoxification effects of the PEMF which leaves and uncomfortable feeling as toxins are expelled.
Speaking of how you may feel when receiving PEMF therapy, most people claim to feel nothing, however do not be surprised if you feel a slight tingling sensation from the electrical static produced by the PEMF. Others have claimed that whilst receiving PEMF treatment they experienced stress relief as the treatment progressed, so if you are a highly stressed individual (like myself) this may just be the thing for you.
As a side note, if you do choose to use PEMF therapy, many experts recommend drinking water before and after the therapy, so as when your body begins to expel toxins, it will not mistakenly reabsorb them in place of other cells that the water can provide.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy Video
PEMF is definitely growing in popularity. Here is a YouTube video of the therapy being discussed on the Dr. Oz show:
So now I can return to the question I posed at the beginning of this article, “Is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy dangerous?” In short, No. From all the evidence I have seen and read, there seems to be no immediate damage caused by PEMF. If in fact, this is just an artificially recreated version of the Earths own Pulsed Electromagnetic Field, then I can understand why we aren’t being damaged by it; after all we did evolve under its effects.
However, simply because I haven’t found a negative to PEMF treatment, it doesn’t mean there isn’t one, it simply means I couldn’t find it. But for now, it looks like a simple way to help your body recharge and work at an optimal level, so I will not boycott it. If you do choose to use it, please leave a comment or let me know how you got on, I’d love to hear from you!
