PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field, the earth’s magnetic field and Schumann frequencies. This, along with earth/food, water, air/oxygen, and fire/sunlight, are the elements of health. Schumann frequencies are named after Dr Winifred Otto Schumann, who discovered that the earth has its own frequency, initially calculated at 10 Hz and later found to be 7.83 Hz. The same as the alpha brain waves.
The underground bunker study by Dr Rutger Wever showed that without exposure to the Schumann resonance, those inside the bunker fell sick – depression, headaches, and emotional problems. Their health returned when a 7.83 Hz magnetic pulse generator was set up. We are tuned to the pulse of the earth.
The problem Bryant Meyers sees is in today’s world is two-fold – a weakening magnetic field and increasing electrosmog. We are not connected to the health-promoting natural frequencies of the earth as much as we need.
The Newtonian medical paradigm is based on illness and fixing the symptoms, based on the idea that if we study the part than we will understand the whole. What often happens is that people do not take responsibility for true well-being. The author advocates a healing-centred model so that we reconnect to the earth, the five elements of health, and make changes that do not continuously add stress and toxicity to the body.
The book includes information on all five elements to give a holistic perspective. He goes into detail about what an electromagnetic field and pulsed electromagnetic field are and some interesting studies, including the 4-year landmark research by NASA, which shows among many findings, that the frequencies, at the intensities provided by the earth are needed by the human body for health and that lower frequencies were better to stimulate cellular growth, repair, and healing.
“The most effective electromagnetic field for repair of trauma was the square wave with a rapid rate of change, which saw cell growth increased to 4.0 times.”
The key is not intensity but frequency resonance and for those who are already chemically-sensitive, this is even more important and they may even need to dial down the intensity of their PEMF devices.
“In living systems, extremely weak fields may have potent effects, while there can be little or no response to strong fields.”
Based on his years of exploration with this technology and different equipment, along with research into a wide range of studies, Bryant Meyers gives suggestions on what to look for in a PEMF device, including having a full body mat with pure copper coils, tightly wound that decrease in magnetic flux as you move from the head to the feet and alternating polarity. Based on NASA research, having local applicators with square wave forms is ideal, for example, for pain. Biofeedback that takes into account the organ clock is also beneficial.
What was also useful and interesting was the “safe” distances he gave for a cellphone (1″), cell phone tower (100 meters), and a baby monitor (2-3′). Yes, bluetooth and baby monitors, which operate at microwave frequencies, emit a beacon when turned on, even when not in use. Suggestions – use a corded or a voice-activated baby monitor. Turn off the wi-fi routers. See here about EMF.
Happy thoughts create happy neuropeptides; angry thoughts create angry ones.
Chapter 9 goes into psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics, which was very useful and necessary as there have been a lot of breakthroughs in these areas. “Happy thoughts create happy neuropeptides; angry thoughts create angry ones.” Depending on your thoughts and emotions, different cascade of biochemical changes occurs in your body. “Every cell in your body has neuropeptide receptors. They are constantly listening to your internal dialogue.”
Another way PEMF and PEMF devices help our wellbeing is their action of harmonizing our emotions which will lead to the production of more positive hormones and neuropeptides. This is how we can shift our health through our mindset. As Bryant Meyers points out, it is far more powerful to view health, not as the absence of disease, but as an “open-ended journey into greater levels of strength and energy. Health is about thriving, not just surviving.”
Here are the top 8 benefits of PEMF therapy given by the author:
* Stronger Bones (FDA approved to heal and strengthen bones!)
* Pain Relief (This is often the reason people use PEMF devices)
* Better Sleep
* More Energy ATP
* Better Oxygenation and Circulation
* Improved Immunity
* Relaxation and Stress Reduction
* Nerve and Tissue Regeneration
Grab a copy of PEMF: 5th Element of Health and find out what PEMF is and how these benefits come about and why they are essential to your well-being. Being exposed to earth’s frequencies (earthing) and using PEMF devices is only part of the wellness approach suggested by the author. PEMF is the 5th element for health, along with the other elements that are also essential.
