Making a Case For PEMF
After conducting in-person interviews of more than 23,000 American adults, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (in conjunction with the National Center for Health Statistics) found that nearly 40 percent of those surveyed used some type of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in an effort to obtain and retain a higher level of health. And while many different forms of CAM exist, not many can provide the wide range of benefits of high-power PEMF.
The History of PEMF: Thousands
of Years in the Making
The use of magnetic therapy can actually be found as early as 2000 B.C., when the Chinese book, The Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine, noted that “magnetic stones” were used for various health issues.
In fact, magnetic therapy was deemed so powerful, and became so popular, that magnet-based products such as boots, girdles, and caps were sold through the mail. Thomas F. Valone’s 2003 presentation to the Whole Person Healing Conference & Tesla Energy Science Conference shed some light on PEMF’s early beginnings even more. At the conference, Valone spoke about how it was Nikola Tesla who would majorly impact PEMF’s use. Forever.
Is PEMF safe?
When it comes to choosing a treatment option, one of the first questions most patients ask is: “Is it safe?” According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Patient safety is a serious global public health issue.” They back this statement by reporting that even hospitalized patients are at risk, with one out of every ten harmed while in what is supposed to be one of the safest medical environments. Safety is also a major concern and consideration for patients who are interested in PEMF therapy.
