PEMF Therapy Review - Why More is NOT Better (part 2)

Part 2 – The Big Fat Myths of High-Intensity PEMF

PEMF Book

My name is Bryant Meyers, author of the book “PEMF – the 5th Element of Health.” Welcome to part two of my video series on the myths of high-intensity PEMF. We are going to look in more detail at why the homeopathic approach to PEMF therapy is the safest and most effective way to heal your body.

I want to expose the myths and lies that are taught by companies that sell very high intensity PEMF therapy devices.

When I say a homeopathic approach to PEMF therapy, I am referring to the overall philosophy of working with the body to heal itself. Ultimately PEMF therapy and energy medicine devices do NOT heal the body. I repeat, no device is going to heal your body. But, Earth-based or natural PEMF therapy or homeopathic therapy devices give your body an energetic boost that will catalyze and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself.

high-intensity devices

Let’s look at some of these high-intensity devices and what they’re saying. Companies that sell high intensity PEMF devices will tell you that you want more power, higher intensities, that you’ll get deeper penetration and faster healing. I want to give you a very clear explanation as to why that’s not true.

These high intensity PEMF devices are mainly sold for pain relief and pain-related issues. Yes, they can do provide symptomatic relief, but so do low-intensity PEMF systems. I’ve worked with a few different brands over the past eight years that are ow-intensity devices. They do work, even symptomatically. And, of course, they are much more natural, so in the long run they are more effective at healing and regeneration.

high-intensity devices

Some of these high-intensity PEMF devices use ridiculously high intensities – upwards of two Tesla – almost 100-thousand times stronger than the natural field strength of the Earth. Our bodies are just not accustomed to an intensity that high. This is why I refer to these high-intensity systems as allopathic energy medicine. They basically hit the body over the head like a proverbial sledgehammer with unnaturally high intensities and frequencies.

Why use a sledgehammer when only a small force is needed? The result, like pain-relief drugs, may provide some symptomatic relief, but at the expense of working against the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It’s providing an external force that the body has to defend against and takes it out of its natural healing ability. This is diametrically opposed to a more natural homeopathic approach that works with the body and its symptoms to gently and more effectively help the body to heal better and faster.

There may be a time and place for high-intensity PEMF devices but only under the supervision of a trained practitioner and only for short period of time. For safe, affordable daily application, for a unit you want to own in your house, look for the lowerintensity full-body-mat devices.

Banned PAP-IMI Device

The high intensity systems have an enormous profit margin. I know that some sales people are genuinely trying to help people, but because the profits can be upwards of $6,000 or more per sale, that’s obviously a very high incentive.

Let’s a take a look at some of the history of the high-intensity systems. These devices are modeled after the original Papimi device, which was outlawed by the FDA in 2005. The man behind the device was Panos Pappas, a math professor from Athens, Greece. He invented the Papimi back in the 1970’s or ‘80s. When the Papimi was outlawed, a couple companies sprung up that tried to create a new version of it. But they still use the same principles that the Papimi device used. They create a very high voltage and very high intensity. Also they can be very expensive. Some of these devices cost from $10,000 to $20,000. In my opinion, that’s not the way to go, but some other experts say there is a time and place for high-intensity systems.

I strongly recommend that if you use a high-intensity system, so do under the direct supervision of a trained professional. Don’t buy one for home use.

DIN

Let’s talk about what the international agencies recommend as far as safe intensities for use with the human biology. The D-I-N is the institute of standards in Germany. And they recommend not going above 400 microTesla, while the high-intensity systems are in the range of 1-Tesla. That’s way, way higher than what’s deemed as safe by the D-I-N in Germany.

There’s also an agency called the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). It’s a world-wide authority on the safety related to electromagnetic energy. Both the European Union and the FDA rely on their findings so it’s a very credible organization. According to the ICNIRP, the safe limiting values for timevarying PEMF are dependent upon both frequency and intensity.

Schumann Resonance

They recommend that if you’re working with lower frequencies, similar to the Earth, then you can go up to higher intensities, up to 5,000 micro-Tesla. With higher frequencies the safety limits go down to around 5 micro-Tesla. But in both cases, it’s still a low intensity compared to what high-intensity systems are using.

Here’s a brief overview of the Schumann Resonance and the natural field strengths of the Earth. What people don’t realize is that the Schumann Resonance has been shown to be essential by the Russian space program and NASA, and Dr. Rutger Wever’s early bunker studies in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and the zero-field studies by Dr. Valerie Hunt and others. They have very conclusively shown that we need the Schumann resonance.

Schumann Resonance

It’s sort of like the heartbeat of the Earth, and our internal biology and circadian rhythms are synchronized to this frequency. This energy and frequency actually works at the cellular level to energize the cells. It works in a couple different ways. But it’s only one Pico-Tesla! That’s a very, very weak field. Our body has very sensitive antennas to pick up this particular intensity, but that’s just one-trillionth of a Tesla. And yet, it’s essential. That’s showing us that the Earth is giving us a very gentle homeopathic dose of this essential frequency. And as I show in my book, it’s really fascinating to me that the alpha brain state according to an EEG, has an almost identical waveform to the Schumann resonance.

A four-year NASA study found that low-intensity, rapid time-varying waveforms using low frequencies was the most effective for healing and regeneration. NASA also confirmed that “less is more” (a lower intensity is more effective).

Let’s briefly go over some of the myths promoted by high-intensity PEMF companies:

Myth #1:

High-intensity systems penetrate deeper. Actually low-intensity PEMF systems penetrate all the way through the body, and even a few feet above. The fact that high-intensity PEMF devices penetrate deeper is simply not true. The truth is low-frequency PEMF goes all the way through the body, sort of like “breeze through the trees.” You don’t need a high intensity for that to happen.

Myth #2:

High-intensity systems penetrate deeper. Actually low-intensity PEMF systems penetrate all the way through the body, and even a few feet above. The fact that high-intensity PEMF devices penetrate deeper is simply not true. The truth is low-frequency PEMF goes all the way through the body, sort of like “breeze through the trees.” You don’t need a high intensity for that to happen.

Myth #3:

High-intensity systems penetrate deeper. Actually low-intensity PEMF systems penetrate all the way through the body, and even a few feet above. The fact that high-intensity PEMF devices penetrate deeper is simply not true. The truth is low-frequency PEMF goes all the way through the body, sort of like “breeze through the trees.” You don’t need a high intensity for that to happen.
