PEMF Benefits for Cancer Patients
Why I LOVE the Pulse PEMF
Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) uses pulsed electromagnetic fields to bathe low energy cells in pure, raw energy. Each cell in your body is actually a capacitor, or battery, which holds a charge and one could say that cell charge = life. Your entire body is electrical and your cells each need a measurable electrical charge to function optimally. This can be objectively measured through what is known as a BIA test that measures Phase Angle. One’s Phase Angle is a mathematical calculation of the health of the cell membrane including the electrical charge of the cells. In order to maintain good wellness, cells must be doing their jobs. PEMF therapy supports the body’s natural abilities to optimize balanced body functions –the definition of wellness.
Everyone in the modern world is subject to environmental stresses that can challenge optimal wellness. Today, our bodies rarely make direct contact with the earth which puts us closer to the inherent electromagnetic fields of energy from the earth. The charged atmosphere above us is a standing wave of energy that is stimulate thousands of times a second by lightning and an environment that humans evolved in. Today these natural energies are no longer experienced by people in their pure form. With the establishment of mobile internet, bluetooth and data transmissions, exposure levels have reached an unexpected dimension and quality. Therapeutic PEMF devices operate at an extremely low frequency, are non-ionizing and have been used safely around the world for decades. PEMF is an outside energy source that recharges stressed, underpowered cells like the batteries they essentially are so they can meet the energy demands for optimal cell function.
The studies on PEMF for cancer are exciting. One published in 2013 titled, Low Intensity and Frequency Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields Selectively Impair Breast Cancer Cell Viability revealed:
“We observed a discrete window of vulnerability of MCF7 cells to PEMFs of 20 Hz frequency, 3 mT magnitude and exposure duration of 60 minutes per day. The cell damage accrued in response to PEMFs increased with time and gained significance after three days of consecutive daily exposure. By contrast, the PEMFs parameters determined to be most cytotoxic to breast cancer MCF-7 cells were not damaging to normal MCF-10 cells.”
“Based on our data it appears that PEMF-based anticancer strategies may represent a new therapeutic approach to treat breast cancer without affecting normal tissues in a manner that is non-invasive and can be potentially combined with existing anti-cancer treatments.”
Another study on cancer in mice (published in 2010) revealed, “pulsating electromagnetic fields (PEMF) and sinusoidal electromagnetic fields (SEMF) induce tumor cell apoptosis, inhibit angiogenesis, impede proliferation of neoplastic cells.” Also, a 2002 study concluded, “This electromagnetically induced (through PEMF) apoptosis (cancer cell death) may be a first step for a noninvasive treatment of cancer tissue for inhibition of its proliferation.”
