PEMF vs. Traditional Medicine: Which Approach is Right for You?

As PEMF becomes more ubiquitous throughout the medical community, physicians are increasingly recommending the practice for a wide variety of medical ailments and wellness goals. But if you’re new to PEMF, it’s understandable if you have questions.

How do PEMF devices compare to traditional medical treatments? More precisely: which option is right for you?

The answer depends on your specific situation, which should be discussed with your doctor. But as you compare your options, here are some of the key differences between pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and conventional medicine.

A PEMF machine is completely non-invasive.

PEMF is unique from traditional medicine in that it’s safe, pain-free and non-invasive. There are no needles involved. No surgical procedures. No blood tests. No pills to swallow. No instruments that need to be inserted into the body.

In fact, patients are often surprised at how easy PEMF therapy is. You simply lie down on a PEMF mat, such as the iMRS Prime or Omnium1. All you do is relax while the mat gently emits electromagnetic waves at levels that are so low, you don’t feel anything at all. (Some patients may feel a gentle tingling or warmth, while others don’t feel a thing.)

So for example, if you are seeking a solution for pain relief and you want to avoid the risks that come with surgery, or the invasive aspect of acupuncture, then PEMF therapy may be the right approach for you.

PEMF devices don’t have any of the same risks as prescription meds.

Prescription medication is a prime example of traditional medicine that many patients (and their physicians) are steering away from. That’s because many meds come with a long list of risks, such as:

  • Dangerous side effects
  • Adverse reactions
  • High potential for dependency / addiction
  • Interactions with other medications
  • Chance of overdose

Using a PEMF machine is infinitely safer because it doesn’t carry any of these risks. And yet, ample research has shown that PEMF can be just as effective at resolving common medical ailments, such as chronic and acute pain. 

You can use a PEMF mat at home.

Practitioners are increasingly offering PEMF therapy as an outpatient service in their offices. However, one of the greatest benefits of PEMF vs. traditional treatments is that you can use your own personal PEMF machine in the comfort of your own home. You don’t need to schedule any appointments or drive to a doctor’s office or sit in a crowded waiting room.

With PEMF devices like the Omnium1 and iMRS Prime, it’s easy to conduct your own PEMF therapy whenever and wherever you choose.

PEMF therapy has numerous clinical applications.

Another notable difference between PEMF and traditional medicine is that PEMF produces results for a wide array of medical concerns. With traditional medicine, each type of ailment typically requires a specific type of treatment, such as painkillers for pain or anxiety medication for anxiety.

Because PEMF supports the body on a cellular level, it can produce wide-ranging health benefits, including:

  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Reduced symptoms of depression
  • Pain relief
  • Inflammation relief
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Better circulation
  • Stronger bones
  • Increased heart health

This makes PEMF a great, holistic option for patients seeking overall wellness or for those struggling with specific medical ailments.
