PEMFs are frequency-based, applied to either the whole body or parts of the body. PEMFs may only be needed for short periods of time, while the effects last for many hours, setting in motion cellular and whole-body changes to restore and maintain balance in metabolism and health.
The body does not acclimate, or “get used to,” the healthy energy signals of therapeutic PEMFs, even if used for a long time, compared to magnets.
Stationary (or “static”), non-varying, magnetic fields from magnets have fixed strengths. They are used in mattresses, bracelets, knee wraps and the like. Most have very shallow penetration into the body, resulting in a very limited ability to affect deeper tissues, and they rarely treat all the cells of the body simultaneously. Permanent magnets produce only one frequency: unlike a PEMF system, they are far from mimicking the Earth’s pulsating magnetic field in which our bodies have evolved.
By contrast, PEMF systems pass a pulsing electric current through metal coils to generate an electromagnetic field, which imitates nature, with low pulsed magnetic frequencies stimulating several cellular processes, including metabolism, oxygenation and elimination of wastes. Static magnets are not able to achieve a resonance effect.
Pulsed Magnetic Resonance Stimulation is altogether different and scientifically proven most effective.
