What the heck is PEMF and how does it work?

Radiant Reality Blog | PEMF

I have been using PEMF on my family as well as my clients for almost 5 years now. It is a tool that I have used personally for pain relief and to support the healing process of the body. This technology is still new to people in the states although it has been used in hospitals all over Europe for decades now and the research on PEMF is quite frankly, astounding.

Pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy uses low earth based frequencies to stimulate a potassium pump in the cell walls. The cells respond by increasing the oxygen to activate and regenerate cells. This therapy can produce stunning regenerative effects because these magnetic fields result in cells generating so much naturally derived energy that they are able to repair themselves. 

Dr William Pawluk MD, MSc, is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced medical doctors in the field of pulsed electromagnetic therapy and has written extensively on the subject. He states:


"Magnetic fields affect the charge of the cell membrane, which allows membrane channels to open up. These channels are like the doors and windows of a house. By opening cell channels, nutrients are better able to enter the cell, and waste is more easily eliminated from the cell. This helps to rebalance and restore optimum cell function. If you restore enough cells, they will all work more efficiently. Cells of the same type come together to make tissues, and those tissues come together to make organs. So, by restoring or maintaining cellular function, you will, in turn, restore or maintain organ function, allowing the entire body to function better. We all know that the body ages over time. Maintaining the function of every individual cell at an optimal level every day is an important part of slowing aging."


Over the past 40 years scientists from around the world have investigated the effects of Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequencies (PEMF) on nearly every organ and every disease in the body, resulting in over 2,000 published clinical studies showing the many benefits provided by PEMF.

Some of the benefits provided by Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy:

  • Increases cellular oxygen levels
  • Promotes faster healing of injuries
  • Increases blood and fluid circulation
  • Repairs torn tendons and fractured bones
  • Reduces fibrous and scar tissue formation
  • Relaxes muscles and increases range of motion
  • Improves energy by stimulating production of ATP
  • Reduces pain
  • Works as a catalyst to increase bone density and muscle mass
  • Accelerates tissue repair – wounds heal in one-third “normal” time
  • Improves circulation by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries
  • Increases cellular oxygen absorption up to 200% 
  • Improves degenerative nerves and tissue
  • Stimulates mood improving neurotransmitters – reducing anxiety and depression
  • Helps the cells and organs to detoxify
  • Regulated PH – reducing risk of arthritis gout & cancer
  • Reduces inflammation – reduces the enzymes that create inflammation by up to 75%
  • Relaxes vascular system within minutes of completing a session, which drops blood pressure by up to twenty percent 30 minutes after

Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Frequency therapy is also effective at improving cellular conditions associated with pain, and it has been used successfully for rapid recovery from a range of muscle and joint problems, both acute and chronic, including:

  • Joint pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Low back pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Acute ankle sprains
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Neck, shoulder & hip pain

How PEMF helped my body heal...

I developed my own interest in PEMF after reading the body electric by Robert Becker MD. This book is based on research using electricity to regenerate and regrow tissue. This book was based off the clues left by 18th century vitalists and shares the research that our body’s are quite capable of regeneration and by manipulating subtle electromagnetic fields doctors were able to use these frequencies to heal and repair tissue and bones that were not responding to traditional therapies.

The book was read and shelved until I began exhibiting symptoms that were not responding to traditional therapies. And in 2010 I rented a MRS2000 unit from a naturopath in Oregon who was using it to treat clients with neurological brain injuries. 

At the time, I was dealing with brain fog, chronic fatigue and symptoms resembling a chronic bladder infection that was unresponsive to antibiotics. It only took one session to notice a difference in how my body felt. I noticed after falling asleep on the MRS mat that I slept deeper and woke up more rested. I ended up using it multiple times a day when I needed pain relief from the bladder symptoms and when I wanted to rest. 


So I took the plunge and purchased a used MRS 2000 with no warranty and for the next three years it was used on our whole family. Everything from belly aches, to headaches, to insomnia to menstrual cramps, the results were remarkable. I ended up traveling with it to workshops and conferences so that my body could “catch up and rest”. And when I had regained more of my vitality and was feeling well again, I began using it with clients on the table. 


After trying multiple other PEMF and laser technology devices, I decided to become a rep for Swiss Bionic because I have experienced and seen first hand how beneficial this technology is. If you have any questions about this technology, please feel free to email me.

May your reality be radiant!

    Hi Gate!
    Yes I agree completely! This is technology that is surprisingly unknown to the masses and yet holds so much potential for pain relief and mitochondrial repair.
