When it comes to PEMF and immune system health, what role does PEMF therapy play in enhancing your wellness and fending off illness?
Can PEMF make your immune system stronger? Can it make you healthier? What about warding off infections and disease?
In previous posts, we’ve outlined the ways that PEMF can play a vital role in helping people who struggle with sleep problems, anxiety, depression, asthma, migraines, Lyme disease, Parkinson’s Disease and other ailments. Additionally, it’s well known that PEMF therapy can help eliminate pain and inflammation, increase energy and vitality, improve strength, improve circulation and support heart health.
But what about PEMF and immune system health? Here’s what you need to know.
PEMF and Immune System Health: A Holistic Approach to Wellness
A growing body of research shows that there is a clear correlation between PEMF and immune system health. As we outline in more detail below, researchers have found that pulsed electromagnetic field therapy supports the immune system in the same way it helps people with numerous other health goals: by enhancing health on a cellular level.
The primary function of PEMF therapy is to repair, detoxify and re-energize cells within the body. These cells affect every biological process in the body. When your cells are damaged or dysfunctional, this can result in nearly any ailment to your health (or a long, slow recovery from injuries, infection and disease).
But by stimulating cellular activity and helping your body repair those cells, PEMF can deliver a wide range of health benefits. The same is true for PEMF and immune system health.
But let’s step back for a second. To understand the correlation between PEMF and immune system health, it’s important to first understand how the immune system works.
How Does Your Immune System Work?
Your immune system is what keeps you healthy. It consists of a complex network of organs, cells and proteins that work together to defend your body against infection, while also protecting your body’s own cells.
As one medical paper puts it, your immune system “protects your body from harmful substances, germs and cell changes that could make you ill.”
Without a healthy immune system, there is no way to fight the harmful things that enter our bodies or fight the harmful changes that can occur inside our bodies.
The key to a healthy immune system, as you might expect, is healthy immune system cells. That ties back into the relationship between PEMF and immune system health. By supporting your body at the cellular level, PEMF helps your body’s natural healing processes to make your immune system stronger and keep you healthy and accelerate recovery.
What Does Science Say about PEMF and Immune System Health?
Numerous studies have found a clear correlation between the use of PEMF and immune system health.
Let’s look at some of the findings:
- A 2019 study published in Bioelectricity (a respected journal on science, engineering and medicine), found that PEMF can play an important role in regulating cell signaling mechanisms involved in the immune response pathways of different cell types. More precisely, researchers write: “PEMF can activate multiple intracellular pathways, including numerous processes and biochemical mechanisms within both the immune system and tissue regenerative processes, such as the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.”
- A 2018 study published in Frontiers in Public Health focused on PEMF and immune system health as it relates specifically to healing from wounds and injury. The study found that pulsed electromagnetic fields could be an effective “therapeutic agent to regulate immune responses associated with wound healing” and that using PEMF (possibly in combination with other pharmacological treatments) “seems to be the most promising area for further studies.”
