PEMF Therapy for Lyme Disease
"PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. Devices that utilize PEMF technology emit electromagnetic waves at different wavelengths in order to stimulate and encourage your body’s natural recovery process."(Oska Wellness)
Unlike the waves emitted from microwaves and x-ray machines, PEMF waves have a lower frequency and occur in brief bursts, similar to the electromagnetic waves found in nature.
Healthy cells have both positive and negative charges which exchange ions to keep your body healthy. As our bodies deteriorate due to age or injury, our cells get damaged with low charges. The loss of the body's ability to exchange ions leads to inflammation, fatigue and pain. PEMF technology targets affected cells and helps to restore the healthy electromagnetic charges in the cells.
Stress is another major player when it comes to health. Even mild stressors over a given amount of time can lead to many health problems.
"Stress accelerates the aging process, and can cause heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, fatigue, immune problems, anxiety and depression, and many other problems. Whenever there is muscular tension, as is often caused by stress, the blood supply to the tissues involved is diminished. If allowed to linger within the body, these tensions can cause fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. It is likely that stress is responsible for close to 70% of the problems seen by today’s doctors.
Stress also causes a very quick and significant decrease in white blood cell counts, creating a sudden state of immune vulnerability, such as may be caused by lack of sleep or travel. PEMFs increase host resistance by enhancing some immune functions.
Research has shown that daily use of PEMF therapies alter stress responses by acting directly on the nervous system, glands, cells, tissues, and organs" (Dr. Pawl).
