The Power of PEMF
(Pulsed Electromagnetic Field – Cellular Exercise)
A Case of Reversing Advanced Coronary Artery Disease with Severe Angina.
I’ve chosen the details of this specific case history presented by Martin Milner, ND, as it clearly shows the tremendous healing potential of PEMF technology.
A 65-year-old, very pleasant, white Caucasian female presented to his clinic with advanced coronary artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Her cardiac history began in 1996, when she went into cardiac arrest and was successfully defibrillated and brought back to life. The episode left her without sensation in two of her left toes, which was presumed to be a complication of chest defibrillation.
During her hospitalization, significant ischemic heart disease was diagnosed on cardiac catheterization, and two stents were deployed into the left anterior descending and right circumflex coronary artery. As time progressed, her disease advanced. A second angiogram revealed the need for an additional stent in her left anterior descending coronary artery. Her ischemic heart disease progressed further, and in 2005 she underwent a three-vessel coronary artery bypass surgery.
She began seeing Dr. Milner in Jan. of 2006 for assistance in attempting to reduce her medication load. At the time her condition had continued to worsen. She experienced severe leg cramps, asthma (related to some of her heart medications) and continued high blood pressure. In spite of improvement in her leg cramps, asthma and reducing some meds, her April 2007 angiogram revealed progressive obstructive disease evolving into worsening chest pain. She was prescribed additional medication, the nitroglycerine type-specific for angina, yet failed to see improvement. In spite of all attempts, her angina progressed to stage IV, the worst rating of cardiac disability, where her angina symptoms continued even at rest.
With no signs of improvement and an ever-declining quality of life, they began a trial of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) cellular exercise. As Dr. Milner states, our living cells are electrical direct current (DC) systems. In fact, all life generates an electrical DC charge. This natural charge is created by the movement of ions in and out of cell membranes, creating and maintaining a membrane charge of approximately 70 mV. Any challenge to the cell, such as oxygen or nutrient deficiency, toxicity, tissue changes or inflammation, alters ion movement, and the charge on the cell membrane changes. This altered charge profoundly affects metabolic nutrition into and waste products out of the cell as well overall cellular health and function.
PEMF takes alternating current (AC) and transforms it into DC, producing variations ranging from low to high voltage. This voltage is passed through a coil, generating a safe, pulsed magnetic field around the coil. As the magnetic field is pulsed on, electrons are excited, and cells exposed to the magnetic field are exercised and expanded. The electrically charged cell membrane is gently pulled by the pulsing magnetic field, and the matter as well as the space around matter is recharged. On the off phase of the pulse, the cells relax. This repetitive cycle is profoundly beneficial cellular exercise and rehabilitation, improving ion movement across the cell membrane that ultimately allows the membrane’s electrical charge to return to optimal. Once the cells recharge themselves, they are able to heal and return to optimal function.
PEMF was added to the patient’s treatment plan in June of 2008, her chest and heart were the areas targeted. Approximately 10 minutes into her first session, she fully regained the lost sensation in her toes, which had been there for 12 years since her heart attack. While this may sound miraculous, as Dr. Milner states, “PEMF could very well recover her nerve damage. Nerve and heart cells are both extraordinarily ionically sensitive cell structures and respond exquisitely to the cellular exercise of a pulsed magnetic field.”
After one month of regular PEMF sessions she regained her ability to perform activities of daily living without chest pain and no longer experienced chest pain at rest. Her angina medication was lowered by a third, and by Dec. of 2008 her blood test results confirmed resolution of her ischemic heart failure.
She continued on with her PEMF therapy and as of 2010, when this case history was written for a journal, she was still enjoying her improvement from PEMF.
Dr. Milner states: A review of the electrophysiological effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields and the presentation of this case compels the reader to consider PEMF as one of the greatest hidden breakthrough technologies of cellular exercise and cellular rehabilitation of the last century. Over 5,000 studies have been published worldwide over the last 40 years. It definitely warrants further investigation.
High-intensity PEMF is not considered a medical device in the U.S. It simply produces pulsed magnetic fields of varying strengths that function as a cellular exerciser. It is not intended to treat, diagnose or prevent any disease or condition. With PEMF we are restoring cellular health, allowing you to better achieve your health potential.
