Leigh syndrome is a rare inherited neurometabolic disorder that affects our nervous system. It can be caused by patches of damaged tissue; known as lesions that develop in the brain. These lesions can be accompanied by loss of myelin coating around the nerves reducing the ability of the nerves to activate muscles that are used for movement or relay the sensory information from the rest of the body and back to the brain.
Leigh syndrome can be caused by mutations in 1 of more than 75 different genes. In humans most genes are found in the DNA in the cells nucleus. Some of these genes found in the DNA are in a specialized structure of cell called Mitochondria.
Mitochondria uses oxygen to convert the energy from the food we eat into a form that cells can use through a process called oxidative phosphorylation. During this oxidative phosphorylation the protein complexes drive production of ATP, which are the cells main energy source. Many gene mutations that occur in those with Leigh’s syndrome disrupt or eliminate activity of one or more of these complexes or disrupt their assembly.
Another common M+ DNA mutation in Leigh’s syndrome affects the MT- ATP 6 gene, which provides instructions for making a piece of complex V known as ATP synthesis protein complex. These mutations can block generation of ATP by the mitochondria, which can decrease the activity of the other oxidative phosphorylation protein complexes and lead to formation of mitochondrial protein, which can impair mitochondrial energy production. It is believed that the impaired oxidative phosphorylation can lead to cell death because of the decreased energy available in the cell.
Leigh’s syndrome usually occurs early on often before the age of 2. Some things that one can encounter are:
-The inability to grow and gain weight
-Have severe muscle and movement problems
-Inability to balance or coordinate movements
-Weak muscle tone (hypotonia)
-Involuntary contractions (dystonia)
-Movement and balance problems
-Loss of sensation and weakness in limbs
-Decrease function of swallowing and breathing
About a year and a half ago my friend shared the news that her son was diagnosed with this rare syndrome. I had never heard of it but a short time after learning what it was I came across PEMF. As a practitioner of many different modalities it got my attention immediately and I needed to learn more.
PEMF can help support the body as we know that every cell produces an electromagnetic field created by ion transfer via cell membranes. Using PEMF technology you can “charge” these cells that aren’t working optimally. Using PEMFs low frequency triple sawtooth waveform it helps match the biological window in the human cells frequencies. Science has shown us that PEMF technology can optimize cell function improve melatonin; improve blood circulation and oxygenation saturation.
My friend’s little boy started using the Omnium1 PEMF system once a week. He noticed after laying on the full body mat that he had more energy he was even able to stay at school full days, his body felt calmer, he slept better and just had an overall change to mood. After months of weekly use they purchased a PEMF system to allow daily use so he could continue to feel better and live the best life he possibly could.
1 in 5 Canadians live every day with arthritis and there is no cure.
Arthritis is a collection of conditions affecting joints and other tissues. It causes pain, restricts mobility and diminishes quality of life.
Arthritis is a term used to describe a group of over 100 diseases characterized by inflammation in the joints or other areas of the body. Inflammation is a medical term that describes redness and swelling which causes pain and, when in the joints, can also cause stiffness. Left unchecked, inflammation can lead to significant and often irreparable damage to the affected areas, resulting in loss of function and disability.
Arthritis is a chronic condition: it affects people on an ongoing, constant or recurring basis over months, years, even a lifetime. It can involve almost any part of the body, most often affecting the hip, knee, spine or other weight-bearing joints, but also found in the fingers and other non-weight-bearing joints. Some forms of arthritis can also affect other parts of the body.
Arthritis conditions are grouped into two broad categories:
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis, affecting more Canadians than all other forms of arthritis combined. Though once referred to as the “wear-and-tear” arthritis, the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) recently re-defined this condition. It describes OA as the result of the body’s failed attempt to repair damaged joint tissues. While the joint damage can occur through deterioration associated with aging, it can also occur in response to an injury.
OA leads to the breakdown of cartilage (the tough elastic material that covers and protects the ends of bones), and the resulting bone-on-bone contact can cause pain, stiffness, swelling and reduced range of movement in the affected joint(s). The joints most commonly affected by OA are the knees, hips and those in the hands and spine.
There are many factors that are thought to contribute to developing OA, such as age, obesity, your sex, occupation, participation in certain sports, history of joint injury or surgery, and genetics.
Inflammatory arthritis (IA)
Inflammatory forms of arthritis are different from osteoarthritis, in that the source of joint damage is from inflammation rather a wearing away of your cartilage. Most forms of IA are also autoimmune diseases, where the immune system – the body’s defense system against infections and other invaders – mistakenly starts to attack the body’s own healthy tissues.
Inflammation from these conditions can result in pain, stiffness, restricted mobility, fatigue and damage to joints and other tissues. If not identified and treated swiftly, these conditions tend to progress more quickly and aggressively than OA.
IA includes every form of arthritis except osteoarthritis – even some things you may not have realized were arthritis at all, like lupus or gout. Other common examples include rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis, but there are many other types. Some forms of IA are considered systemic diseases, because they can affect the whole body.
Typical treatment for those suffering with arthritis include medication to help provide pain relief and reduce inflammation.
Surgery may also be recommended depending on the severity and location of the disease.

Why Choose PEMF Therapy?
Consider an alternative, natural and non-evasive approach to reducing pain and inflammation
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field
PEMF therapy sends low frequency pulses of electromagnetic energy to stimulate biological, chemical reactions within your cells. It is these biological, electrical and chemical processes that permeate the cell’s membrane to regenerate and heal the body at the most foundational level – the cell.
When cells are exposed to PEMF it allows for the increased intake of minerals, nutrients, and oxygen which supports the production of ATP (the body’s energy supply), increased ion transfer, cellular voltage and circulation. PEMF also facilitates the removal of toxins, CO2 and water, maximizing cellular performance.
The secret of PEMF lies in the improvement of microcirculation. The increased blood flow minimizes the clumping of red blood cells and increases circulation by delivering oxygen to the smallest blood vessels of the body. Research has found that PEMF therapy is an effective tool to combat and reduce joint and muscle pain by reducing inflammation.
The Omnium1 PEMF therapy mat delivers a specialized therapeutic waveform to target these very small blood vessels promoting improved blood flow and increased oxygen and nutrient supply to tissues, muscles and organs.
Rent a PEMF system today to discover how daily usage of PEMF therapy can significantly reduce pain and inflammation for the arthritis sufferer.
On March 14, 2021, my spouse and I were in a car accident. Both of us suffered what is called a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The most common causes of this trauma can be falls, bumps, blows, or something that enters the skull. Even though we did not hit our heads directly during the accident, the impact on our car and our bodies was strong enough to make our heads move very quickly forward (sudden acceleration) and very quickly backwards (sudden deceleration), causing a concussion and a whiplash.
Here are the most common symptoms of a TBI:
We both experienced serious and frequent headaches immediately, but not vision problems, sensitivity to light, or loss of smell or taste. We also had problems concentrating and troubled sleep, but we were totally unprepared for the emotional aspects of having a concussion.
For the next two months, I could not look down or bend my neck down for more than a few minutes without experiencing a headache. The nausea and dizziness were present only immediately after the accident. One hour after it happened, after talking with my insurance for 20 minutes, my brain suddenly got very tired. Words were not coming out anymore. For someone who makes a living with her words, that was an unsettling experience, the first in what was going to be a daily occurrence, for weeks on end. Before the accident, I could open my mouth and words would just flow out, expressing my thoughts with ease. Not anymore.
As a translator, I was used to smoothly go back and forth between languages. Now I found that my vocabulary had shrunk dramatically in both languages and that the best I could come up with was some approximation of what I really meant. I would often remain stuck with a French or an English word, unable to find its counterpart. I got scared.
I heard white noise all the time and rock music made me tense. I could concentrate only for short periods of time. At first, I worked at my job at a computer only two hours a day before mental fatigue would set in. I had trouble understanding my emails and became overwhelmed very quickly. I took things personally, had to write absolutely everything down, forgot procedures, became paranoid that my colleagues would not trust me anymore, and felt totally out of control. I had to ask for help and that was very, very difficult. I felt vulnerable and depressed.
My physiotherapist helped me understand that one branch of my autonomous nervous system called the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), the one that is active in “fight or flight” situations, had become stuck in the “on” position. When that happens, it is difficult to relax, sleep, and keep one’s sense of humour. My sympathetic nervous system had gotten activated by the trauma and become hypersensitive to any form of stress or fatigue. That is why he expressly told me take breaks often and to not even approach my limit on any level (physical, mental or emotional).
I took his advice to heart. But what was instrumental in helping me deal with the headaches, the problems with stamina, memory and concentration, feeling self-conscious, anxious, depressed and scared was my PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) mat from Swiss Bionics.
You see, I was very fortunate because immediately after I hung up from speaking with the insurance company, I was able to lay on the mat we had purchased two months before. During those two months, I had explored different settings to help me feel energized for my day, relax when needed and sleep at night. After the accident, as soon as I laid down, I would feel safe, in what felt like a warm embrace and I would fall asleep. It was therefore very easy to take short naps every day and feel calm and refreshed. That was instrumental in my being able, over a period of two months, to gradually increase my working hours to a full day. PEMF was my nervous system’s “off” switch.
Our PEMF system uses low frequencies that, as peer-reviewed studies have proven, help reduce irritation and inflammation in the brain, decrease anxiety and depression, regenerate nerves, improve circulation and oxygenation, as well as promote a deep and restorative sleep. All of those benefits accelerate healing at the cellular level, everywhere in the body. Thus every cell’s well-being and the body’s ability to heal itself are being realized without any negative side-effects.
I felt safe when I was on the mat and that has helped me become more patient during my slow recovery. It has now been a bit over 5 months, and I am rarely at a loss for words, I can express myself with fluidity, I am a fast typist and thinker again, and I can focus, concentrate and remember much more easily. I do treasure the habits I have made to take breaks often and stimulate my parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) by looking away from the screen, stretching my body or laying down to breathe deeply and meditate on my beloved Swiss Bionics iMRS or Omnium mat. While I don’t automatically fall asleep anymore, I am able to connect with my body at a deep level, and I am rewarded with a feeling of profound well-being every time.
If you or a loved one is among the 10 million people who, every year, suffer a traumatic brain injury or concussion caused by a motor vehicle accident, sports, fall or blow to the head, you may be curious and consider renting a system from your local PEFM Global Rentals expert. You can experience the benefits of PEMF for yourself, several times a day in the comfort of your own home and bring your whole self into balance.
Unfortunately our joints take a beating throughout our life. Being so essential to all of our movements means being used, abused and depended on. Add in sports and leisure activities and they often don’t get the credit or attention that they require until things have gone wrong.
Thankfully nature has accounted for this overuse to some degree by providing sheaths for our tendons and fluid in our joints to keep them lubricated like well oiled machines. But as with anything as life goes on, sheaths can wear down, inflammation can occur to pick up the slack and the balance of fluid can tip in either direction. Insert trauma, an injury, over flexion and a lifetime of use and you have pain, stiffness, aching, limitations and discomfort.
PEMF Therapy is excellent for not only speeding up the healing of joint injuries but in maintaining healthy joints. Preventing injury or degeneration is always better than having to endure the healing process!
I have a personal journey with joint health and PEMF… Let’s look at my MRI pictures…
(These were taken in Ukraine so you’ll have to excuse the Ukrainian medical terms)
This is often known as FROZEN SHOULDER… and if you google it you will read. “Treatment for frozen shoulder involves range-of-motion exercises and, sometimes, corticosteroids and numbing medications injected into the joint capsule. In a small percentage of cases, arthroscopic surgery may be indicated to loosen the joint capsule so that it can move more freely.”
I suffered with this injury for a year and a half trying every conventional medical treatment, injection, pain medication and exercise available...I drew the line at surgery and searched for something that would get to the root of the problem….the inflammation. Something that would attack these sacs of fluid that was restricting my movement, stopping me from turning the steering wheel in my car, rolling over at night and reaching the glass in my kitchen cupboard.
PEMF was the answer
PEMF provides the low frequency that our cells are looking for and actively responding to. When our cells respond with energy production this energy is transferred into the rest of our body. Blood flow is increased and inflammation is reduced. With a reduction in inflammation, connective tissue is restored to its original size and fluid in the tendon sheath is reduced. This translates into decreased pain and increased range of motion.
PEMF isn’t a pill, healing doesn’t happen overnight, it's cumulative… but encouraging a process that is natural to our body means that our body can heal itself without side effects. There is no better method of healing than allowing the body to get it done naturally. PEMF is a compliment to our natural energetic frequency, encouraging the body by providing a clean energy frequency that it can respond to and use for it’s recovery.
Fast forward… 3 years later I am fully recovered (and have been for over a year). Pain free with a full range of motion and living my life without restriction, medical intervention or limitations on what my shoulder can or should do. This is my journey with joint health and PEMF but you can replace the word shoulder with knee, wrist, ankle, hip, etc...any joint in the body. “Moveable parts are breakable parts” and this simply means we need to maintain them and give our body the tools that nature intended when it comes to healing.
With PEMF our movable parts can stay movable for life!
Autoimmune diseases are very difficult to treat. Multiple sclerosis presents differently for each person who is suffering from it. It's a difficult condition to treat for that reason. The symptoms and episodes are varied and can include the symptoms below:
These are all chronic symptoms that can be improved by improving overall cellular health. PEMF helps the cellular membranes exchange ions and help the cell work at its peak performance. This in turn helps the cells function. In Multiple Sclerosis, the nerve cells don't myelinate properly (myelin is the coating made up of cells on the outside of the nerve tissue to help the nerve signal properly). Depending on the area of the body where the nerves are sluggish to myelinate or where the coating has disappeared completely affects the type of symptoms experienced.
PEMF when administered as a low frequency device such as the Omnium1 and IMRS prime, numerous independent studies have shown that 8 minute sessions twice daily help with chronic fatigue symptoms versus a placebo effect. The gentle electromagnetic stimulation is very effective at helping the cells.
Doing regular neurological exercise like moving gently and regular sauna sessions or ice baths also help circulation around the nerves and helps the myelin sheath form properly and keeps episodes and symptoms at bay.
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic condition that can be manageable with diet as well. Adding MCT oil to drinks or meals can provide the easily absorbable fat that helps the myelin sheath form, and keeping sugars and processed foods minimized in contrast to including whole foods into each meal. A healthy supply of nutrients is imperative for healing, as well as increasing cellular functioning. Healthy cells are symptom free!
Decreasing the intensity of symptoms and flare up episodes is the goal. The severity is varied, but typically symptoms get worse as time goes on after diagnosis. That can leave people unable to perform daily tasks and eventually lead to a wheelchair bound life. Chiropractic treatments, acupuncture procedures and other holistic somatic therapies are great at keeping the spinal cord operating without obstruction and helps the nervous system fire properly.
Keeping up a positive and research fueled healing journey is the most important key to success. It's always worth trying new technologies like PEMF mats to help with chronic and autoimmune conditions, and renting a system is a great way to see what it can do for you or someone you know that has an MS diagnosis!
What is chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)?
Chronic fatigue syndrome is much more than just being tired. It can sap your creativity, inner drive, and it decreases your abilities to move forward successfully in life, socially, at home and at work.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a serious, long-term illness that affects many body systems. It can be a debilitating and frustrating condition and the cause of CFS currently remains unknown.
This multi-system disease affects approximately 580,000 Canadians of all ages, according to the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR).
Another name for it is myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). CFS can often hinder your ability to do your usual activities. Sometimes it may not be possible to even get out of bed.
CFS is defined by two major criteria:
Other symptoms include:
· sleep problems
· problems thinking, or concentrating (aka “brain fog”)
· muscle and/or joint pain
· sore throat and/or sore or swollen glands
· flu-like symptoms
· feeling dizzy or sick
· fast or irregular heartbeats (heart palpitations)
Can PEMF Therapy Help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
PEMF therapy may help relieve the symptoms of chronic fatigue. It has been shown to help restore energy levels, reduce inflammation and get people on the road back to feeling like themselves again.
PEMF also improves blood flow and increases oxygen to all the cells of the body and can result in better health. Additionally, PEMF helps the mitochondria (the part of the cell responsible for producing energy) function optimally.
Systemically, PEMF improves blood flow and the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood stream.
PEMF therapy is a cellular supercharger and can influence all 75 trillion cells in the body in one 20-minute treatment! That said, the benefits of PEMF therapy are magnified through cumulative treatment. Rentals of PEMF systems are a great way to achieve this. By having a PEMF system in your home it can be used multiple times per day, day over day to see the fastest road to recovery!

EMFs THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY
EMFs, the bad
There are many reasons why society as a whole is getting sicker ranging from environmental pollutants, daily exposure to toxic chemicals, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, poor quality food and soil, lack of hydration and high levels stress resulting from the speed of information (i.e. internet) and modern living. Yet perhaps the most overlooked factor is our connection to the natural electromagnetic fields of the earth.
A bitter pill to swallow about our missing connection to the healing vibrations of the earth is what is commonly known as electro-smog aka man-made radiation.
The problem with electro-smog is for lack of a better word it is great - no great may be understatement - it’s FREAKING fantastic!
I love my iPhone.
I love my MacBook air.
I love wi-fi
I love my hairdryer.
I love my television
I love the convenience of a microwave (though I have long got rid of mine!)
I love Suri….but maybe Suri is making me sick?…
Modern day technology is wonderful in so many ways, it has literally changed the way we communicate, entertain, do business, and essentially has facilitated our lives in almost every way.
But there’s bad news…in fact Bad with a capital B kinda news!
I know - I know - turn away - run away - close your eye!!!
You do not want to hear this and honestly nor do I.
The problem is the truth sometimes hurts.
There is mounting scientific evidence to support the notion that exposure to man-made electromagnetic frequencies is wreaking havoc on our health.
The reason being our bodies are being inundated with made-made frequencies and fields to which we are not accustomed and as such do not resonate. That is to say our bodies do not know what to do with the information and in a desperate effort to cope our cells respond in ways that are well - let’s just say not so great.
Unexplained conditions and illnesses are manifesting at an alarming rate with direct correlation to our increased exposure to electro-smog. Though this may seem like conspiracy theory when we consider the Surgeon General did not acknowledge the health risks of smoking for many years - it is not to say EMFs are not harmful or will not be deemed extremely harmful by the “mainstream” in the years to come.
When you consider BM136 “Daily exposure to radiation is 100 million times higher today than it was in our grandparents time!” It is fair to say we do not know the extent to which man-made radiation will alter our health.
Given the rate at which we are becoming more and more dependent on wireless technology and as more smart devices enter the market the outcome remains to be seen. Though there is a seductive appeal to the notion of smart watches, smart cars, smart homes, smart communities perhaps we need to reconsider if they are so smart after all.
It is clear we thrive in the natural vibrations of the earth but what happens to our bodies when we are exposed to those vibrations which we are not familiar?
Various Scientific Studies to consider.
Dr. Yael Stein of Hebrew University studied the effect of wireless radiation and cell function. He concluded wireless radiation may manifest in physical pain as our nociceptors flare up in recognition of the waves as damaging stimuli. He is further exploring the possible link between wireless radiation and disease and cancer as well as physical pain to our skin.
In 1992 a Russian study explored the outcomes of exposing rats to frequencies between 53 and 78 Ghz and found a direct negative correlation on heart rate variability (HRV). HRV regulates, among other things, our heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and digestion.
In Dr Robert Becker’s book the Body Electric - he asserted cells communicate via biochemical signals, exposure to radiation interrupts electromagnetic fields at the cellular level. Dr. Otto Warburg proved exposure to harmful EMFs for longer period cause negative impacts on cellular charge and function and thus susceptibility to disease.
MITIGATING THE EFFECTS OF BAD EMFS
In light of the fact our environment is infiltrated with wi-fi towers and our use of cell phones and wireless technology have become part of daily existence it is highly difficult to completely eliminate exposure to electro-smog. Given this inescapable exposure to dangerous man-made frequencies the Omnium1 PEMF mat system provides an imperative solution to protect our cells and in turn our health. In as little as 8 minutes a day the Omnium1 PEMF system can restore the natural vibration of our 70 trillion cells. I personally use the Omnium PEMF as a daily preventative measure against the toxic impacts of bad EMFs. I would highly recommend the Omnium to those seeking solutions to protect and promote health in an era in which our vital connection to the natural frequencies of the earth remains more important than ever.
Owning a PEMF System is the way to go for maximum benefits! There are many options available, why not rent a PEMF system such as the Omnium1 2.0 from your local PEMF Global Rental Expert!
Vertigo and tinnitus are difficult to treat conventionally, as many of those who experience the symptoms have encountered. Tinnitus can happen for many reasons and is very problematic for sensory overload and the occasionally accompanying migraines. The first step is to evaluate your overall health and treat any underlying problems. Evaluate your diet, your exercise routine, and sleep pattern. Regular PEMF treatments are greatly beneficial for increasing the quality of your day-to-day wellness regimens. After all, health is the real wealth. Chronic sensory issues are taxing on the individuals experiencing them and can affect mental health as well if they are not addressed.
Vertigo is a sensation of feeling off balance. If you have these dizzy spells, you might feel like you are spinning or that the world around you is spinning. There are two main causes, and both can be addressed with PEMF use by optimizing cellular membranes to exchange ions and help promote the body's ability to regenerate and heal the affected tissues. The two main types are:
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. BPPV occurs when tiny calcium particles called canaliths are dislodged from their normal location in the outer ear and collect in the inner ear. The inner ear sends signals to the brain about head and body movements relative to gravity. It helps you keep your balance. BPPV can occur for no known reason and may be associated with age.
Meniere's disease is an inner ear disorder thought to be caused by a buildup of fluid and changing pressure in the ear. It can cause episodes of vertigo along with ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and hearing loss.
In a study about tinnitus and PEMF and tinnitus, the method of neuroimaging proved increased activity in the central auditory cortex. It turned out that low frequencies of pulsed magnetic therapy (1 Hz or less) cause a reduction in irritation of the cortex, while higher frequencies (5-20 Hz) increase it. Both cases promote a healing benefit to the body and enable the healing process to initiate. Both frequencies are available in the Omnium1 and the IMRS Prime devices available to rent for an intensive case, as it provides gentle and passive relief of symptoms.
Tinnitus is both high and low pitched, other methods of relief are noise-canceling headphones, cognitive behavioral therapy, background music and lifestyle changes. Including PEMF in the wellness protocol can benefit overall health and increased cellular health leads to less symptoms. Other conditions can also cause tinnitus such as an ear infection, neurological problems or damage, heart disease, thyroid issues, traumatic brain injuries as well. These complex and hard to treat conditions can also be alleviated with regular PEMF use.
The OmniBrain system is also an excellent choice when treating chronic conditions like vertigo and tinnitus. The Omnibrain is advanced Light and Sound relaxation with the ability to create any colors for advanced color therapy applications in addition to the standard light and sound relaxation benefits.
Chronic conditions are easier to treat with the help of many healthy habits and including a PEMF mat treatment will certainly increase the overall health and wellness of every cell in the body. Healthy cells are symptom free cells!
Consider renting an Omnium1 2.0 through PEMF Global Rentals before purchasing, and have an expert create a protocol to help reduce your symptoms!
Participating in sports is a fantastic way to stay in shape, reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, and live a healthy lifestyle. It is also a great way to meet new people and expand your social or business network. Whether you prefer individual or team sports, staying active is good for you physically and mentally, while helping delay the aging process.
Many athletes have had the misfortune of experiencing injuries at some point in time. Whether you are a highly competitive athlete or a casual weekend warrior, injuries can set you back from enjoying the sports you love. Treating those injuries promptly and accurately can make a world of difference in the length and success of your recovery. Seeking professional medical advice and receiving proper treatment is always a wise decision to determine the best course of action.
PEMF Reduces Recovery Time From Sports Injury
Studies have proven that PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy regenerates nerves and tissues, strengthens bones, relieves pain, reduces inflammation, boosts ATP production, improves circulation and oxygenation, accelerates detoxification, and promotes deeper, more restorative sleep. All of these benefits help speed up recovery time from injuries.
Many professional athletes use PEMF on a regular basis and find they recover more quickly from injuries. Faster recovery and pain reduction can lead to the goal of peak performance. Professional athletes are under incredible pressure to perform and compete even while injured. PEMF devices have been proven to reduce recovery time from intense workouts and from injuries. They are legal for all competitive athletes to use because they do not fall into the category of doping. When using PEMF systems, no foreign substance is entering the body. Instead, exposure to a pulsed electromagnetic field allows the body to become stronger because the charge of every cell is being optimized, oxygen saturation increases, elimination of toxins improves, and the athlete experiences less pain. There are no side effects with PEMF as there are when taking medication.
A wide variety of injuries can be treated effectively by PEMF therapy such as bone fractures, back pain, joint pain, injuries to ligaments, tendons, and muscles. In addition, PEMF is used post operatively to reduce pain. Studies reveal that PEMF reduces recovery time significantly, often by half the time. PEMF is non-invasive and can be used in conjunction with traditional therapies, which offers benefits to injured athletes that can reduce the recovery time by speeding up the healing process.
PEMF Is Ideal For Use On A Daily Basis
Daily use of PEMF is ideal for enhancing performance of all sports and can reduce the chance of injury when your body experiences optimal balance. PEMF therapy stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Regular athletic training depletes the ATP, Adenosine triphosphate, which is responsible for almost all cellular processes, including muscle contraction and nerve impulses. When ATP is depleted, it weakens muscles. Because PEMF restores ATP quickly, recovery time is reduced which allows athletes to train harder resulting in improved athletic performance.
Athletes' performance is also enhanced by increased oxygenation by improved blood circulation, increased energy, improved muscle and joint conditions, improved balance, faster reaction time, ability to focus and concentrate. When the body is working optimally, there is a reduced risk of injury. Time spent in a doctor’s office is reduced and money is saved when less physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathic and acupuncture treatments are required.
When injuries do occur, PEMF can be used to reduce recovery time significantly by accelerating the repair of joints, cartilage, bones, and muscles. Consider renting an Omnium1 2.0 or iMRS Prime through PEMF Global Rentals to experience the convenience of having a PEMF device in your home prior to purchasing a system of your own. PEMF devices by Swiss Bionic Solutions are affordable, low intensity systems that are safe for home use that can enhance athletic performance and help to reduce recovery time of sports injuries.
Do you suffer from cold hands and feet, numbness or tingling in your extremities, varicose veins, muscle cramping or swelling in your lower extremities? You could be experiencing poor circulation.
The circulatory system, or cardiovascular system, consists of the heart, veins, arteries and capillaries. It delivers oxygen, nutrients, and hormones to every cell in the body, including all of the organs and tissues, and removes carbon dioxide and waste products. The heart pumps blood through blood vessels everywhere in your body. The blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood from the heart are the arteries. The deoxygenated blood is carried back to the heart by the veins. The capillaries are tiny blood vessels that allow for the exchange of oxygen, nutrients and waste between the cardiovascular system and your organs and tissues. The body sends electrical signals to the heart so it knows it needs to pump harder during exercise and signals to slow down when asleep.
When the circulatory system is not functioning optimally, a number of possible symptoms can occur:
It is important to have regular checkups with your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
There are a number of ways to keep your circulatory system healthy:
These are images of live blood analysis using dark field microscopy to observe live red blood cells. On the left, the blood cells are clumping together preventing proper oxygen delivery. The image on the right shows the red blood cells after using PEMF. The blood cells are circulating proper and carry a high oxygen level.
How PEMF Improves Circulation
One of the most important benefits of PEMF is improved circulation. Regular use of PEMF increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, prevents clumping of red blood cells and provides energy to the cells, and capillaries are dilated which improves microcirculation. PEMF therapy stimulates blood vessels which pump blood and carry oxygen into the cells. In addition, PEMF stimulates the lymphatic vessels allowing toxins and waste to be more efficiently removed from the cells. Lymphatic drainage and blood flow are stimulated, improving the immune system. PEMF allows the cells to become more permeable. By increasing ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate production), our cells absorb more oxygen and nutrients through the vascular and lymphatic systems.
Results of PEMF Therapy
Prior to using PEMF and purchasing an Omnium1 device, one of our clients was diagnosed with venous insufficiency syndrome. Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when the valves in your veins of the legs stop working properly and they are not permitting the blood to flow up to your heart. Instead, blood flows backwards causing blood to pool in the veins which can cause discoloration in the legs. Our client looked like he had severe bruising in his legs from the knees down, despite exercising 5 - 6 days a week. Unfortunately, his doctor was only monitoring him and did not offer any treatment. After using the Omnium1 full body mat and OmniSpot every day for one month, there was a visible improvement in the discoloration of his legs. After 6 months of daily PEMF use, there is virtually no discoloration in our client’s legs!
Experience the Benefits of PEMF for Yourself
In order to achieve optimal cardiovascular health, consider renting locally an Omnium1 or iMRS Prime from PEMF Global Rentals prior to purchase. Daily use of PEMF can make a significant difference in your circulation and help you achieve increased energy, vitality and experience anti-aging on a cellular level.
