Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy

#1  Postby Transilvanian » Jul 15, 2016 11:35 am

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is used for healing fractures and depression. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulsed_el ... ld_therapy
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcran ... timulation

But some companies state that this method helps with a lot of health issues.

They say that this is because PEMF reduces erythrocyte agglutinins agglutination.

PEMF Pulsed Magnetic Field Research Portal

This page provides an organized view of a vast library of information regarding the biological effects pulsed electromagnetic fields. The majority of these references support efficacy for a wide range of physical conditions

PEMF / Blood Experiments

These experiments dual effects of PEMF on an in vitro sample of blood. Method:

In each case, blood was placed on a slide.
Slide was marked by an artifact non-erythrocyte artifact
Slide was exposed to PEMF over time
Slide was returned to microscope and results recorded
Results:

PEMF reduces Erythrocyte Agglutination
PEMF reverses Poikilocytosis

It seems that NASA also uses it: http://www.pulsedharmonix.com/nasa-studies/

I am interested if their statements about blood is real? Is there any objective proof?

In 1979/80 my sister-in-law broke her ankle in a tobogganing accident that had trouble healing and they eventually resorted to this technique.

Great. But I am more interested in this... Blood thing. And inresearch information, not anecdotes.

I'd start at scholar.google.com. Find a good paper. There will be references within to other works. Google will also list papers that are used as references.

Since we are partly eloectrical creatures, I have hopes that we will one day be able to accomplish many more things using electricity than we do now.

And, that one day it will be recognized that electromagnetic pollution is a real problem concern, which may very well be doing harm and causing changes which we are not aware of at all right now.

Yes, but I think that this category(pseudoscience) fits better for the question... And I hope that I will find an answer from somebody who is interested in pseudosciences...

Transilvanian, please don't start more than one thread on the same topic. I'm merging your two threads and leaving the result in Medicine for now.

You do realise that 'pseudoscience' means 'not really science at all?' That notwithstanding I doubt that it'll garner any more interest than it already has - have you actually tried the advice that was given to you regarding google scholar?

That probably tells you everything you need to know then.
