Introduction to PEMF Therapy for Psoriasis
Disclaimer: Consult with a doctor before deciding on a treatment plan for any disease.
PEMF Therapy is a vibrational pulsed electro-magnetic frequency treatment for psoriasis that uses electromagnetic energy to diminish symptoms of the disease. BEMER Therapy has been recognized in the European Union as a Class II Medical Device, but it can be administered either in a clinic or at home. The device works by increasing the body’s circulation and the oxygenation of tissues. Cheaper PEMF devices such as MiraMate have also been used with success by patients at home.
PEMF devices are said to work by reducing inflammation throughout the body and by boosting the oxygen-carrying capacity of human cells. PEMFs can reduce the number of mast cells by 200%.
PEMFs are able to supercharge the mitochondria inside the cells. The mitochondria are the organelles inside human cells that are responsible for producing energy. Without adequate levels of energy, the immune system is downgraded. Many pathogens that colonize the body cause this kind of downgrading. When the mitochondria are supercharged, immunity is improved and the body is able to fight off the colonizing pathogens.
How does PEMF Therapy treat psoriasis?
PEMF Therapy promotes blood flow to ailing tissues and it has a particularly strong impact on the smallest vessels of the body, the capillaries. Increasing the microcirculation to diseased tissues can relieve pain and also promote healing. A number of skin issues can be treated using this system including eczema, acne, psoriasis, skin injuries, and warts. Symptoms of psoriatic arthritis are also improved using PEMF. Though PEMF Therapy systems tend to be very expensive, there are some PEMF alternatives such as MiraMate products.
Microcirculation is increased in the body using low-dose electromagnetic fields that impact cellular processes in a positive way. The pulsed EMF (PEMF) pattern can contribute to a higher level of health in the cells throughout the body. Scientific studies have demonstrated that the electromagnetic fields created by PEMF devices contribute to healthy gene expression and regulation. Cellular metabolism is enhanced as well as the cellular matrix structure which can have a direct impact on psoriasis.
PEMF for Psoriasis: Cure Rate of 70-100%
PEMF therapy is administered via a machine that delivers pulsed electromagnetic frequencies to the body. There are several models of the machine to make it easy for patients to administer treatments either lying down or sitting up. Patients can purchase BEMER products online or they can visit a health practitioner who administers this type of treatment. Another option is to purchase a different PEMF brand that administers pulsed electromagnetic frequencies in the same range as BEMER products.
Fewer than 5% of psoriasis patients have a negative reaction to full-body PEMF treatments. Typically, localized treatments produce no side effects. Some patients are sensitive to electromagnetic treatment, in which case they should avoid this type of therapy. Patients with low blood pressure should also be aware that BEMER magnetic therapy can lower blood pressure further as well as decrease heart rate.
Pulsed magnetic fields (PEMF) devices have been researched scientifically. In one study 110 patients received PEMF treatments. Patients with scalp psoriasis had a 100% cure rate using PEMF therapy. Males with classic psoriasis treatment sites had a 73.7% cure rate while females with guttate psoriasis forms had a 75% cure rate. Researchers noted that the treatment had the best results when it was started in March or April (80% cure rate for those who began treatment in the spring).
