PEMF for prostate – Prostate protocols for the MA200

PEMF for prostate can be very beneficial. Promoting prostate health in men is vital. Unlike anti-inflammatories, you can use your Rife PEMF device prophylactically to prevent conditions in the future. With prostate conditions on the rise, continuous use of your Rife PEMF device can help you to decrease your risks of developing future complications.

Symptoms of Prostate complications to watch for include:

  • weak urine flow
  • needing to urinate more often, particularly at night
  • a feeling that your bladder has not emptied properly
  • difficulty starting to urinate
  • dribbling urine
  • needing to rush to the toilet - you may occasionally leak urine before you get there
  • blood in your urine

If you experience these symptoms, you need to speak to your physician. Once properly diagnosed you can use the protocols below. There are two different protocols depending on whether you are using your Rife PEMF for prophylactic purposes to help to support current and future prostate health or whether you are using your device to address current prostate complaints like prostatitis and BPH.

PEMF for prostate - for supporting prostate health:

Once a week first Week – use circulation to promote health circulation to the area

Once a week second Week – Use inflammation to reduce inflammation in the area

Once a week third Week – Use Prostate General

Once a week fourth Week – Use Prostatitis program

Once every three months – Prostate General for 5 consecutive days

 

PEMF for prostate - for Prostatitis, BPH and other prostate related complaints:

Day 1: Prostate General + Circulation
Day 2: Prostatitis + Inflammation
Day 3: Urinary Tract Infection + Detox

Repeat

Electrode Placement:

To obtain the best results from your Rife PEMF device, the electrodes must be placed as close to the affected area – in this case the prostate. There are a few options with regards to the electrodes and accessories you can use.

Two cylinders – place one cylinder between the buttocks cheeks below the anus and place the other cylinder just above the prostate area

One Cylinder, one body pad – place one cylinder between the buttocks cheeks below the anus and place the body pad just above the prostate area

Two body pads – Sit on one of the body pads – placing the pad below the buttocks and place the other body pad over the pelvic area.

Create a schedule that suits your lifestyle using longer programs on the days you have more time and shorter ones on busier days.

PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

An interesting study on PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was published recently in the Journal of Advanced Research. The double-blind trial compared the efficacy of pulsed ultrasound with pulsed electromagnetic therapy for the treatment of postnatal carpal tunnel syndrome and found that PEMF improved grip strength, reduced pain and could be an effective therapy for patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The study included 40 patients diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.

The study ran for four weeks during which time patients were given exercises to help to improve the condition and groups of patients received either pulsed ultrasound therapy or PEMF therapy three times a week for four weeks. The patients received PEMF therapy at 50Hz for 30 minutes per session. 50Hz on the Rife Model MA and UA devices is frequency number 297 and there is a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome program on both the Rife Model MA and UA.

PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Research - Outcome of the Study

The study measured pain levels, sensory and motor distal latencies, hand grip strength and conduction velocities of the median nerve. After therapy, the groups who received therapy showed significant improvement in all of the areas measured. There was also a difference between the two groups, with the group who received PEMF therapy showing more improvement than the group who received pulsed ultrasound therapy.

Since the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include pain, inflammation and discomfort, it should not really be surprising to show improvements in these areas since both TENS and PEMF have been shown to help reduce pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation.

It is also important to note that no adverse side effects were reported for either PEMF or ultrasound therapy. Unlike pain medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, the use of PEMF therapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome could offer a drugless alternative to the current pharmaceutical treatments available.

PEMF therapy for drug resistant cancer

PEMF in cancer therapy – PEMF could be a promising modality

More and more studies are showing beneficial effects of PEMF in areas like oncology and the benefits of TENS and PEMF therapy in these areas are no longer limited to pain control and management. PEMF in cancer therapy may be a reality in the near future. There are also studies that PEMF can help to overcome some drug resistance in cancer. To read, PEMF THERAPY FOR DRUG RESISTANT CANCER, click here.

PEMF in Cancer therapy

PEMF therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation

A recent review published in Cancer Medicine investigates the use of PEMF in cancer therapy. It investigates PEMF therapy in vitro, in vivo and human clinical studies that have focused on PEMF in oncology and the study concludes that “studies show that PEMF therapy is safe and promising compared to other available cancer therapies. In the future, PEMFs could be used not only as primary therapy but also in combination with other common antineoplastic therapies.”

PEMF in Cancer Therapy - Cancer's included in the Review

Studies included in the review focused on breast cancer therapy, colon cancer, liver cancer and melanoma.

One of the studies on breast cancer cells found that treatment selectively caused MCF7 cells to commit suicide but did not affect MCF10 cells in other words it caused cancer cells to die but did not affect normal breast cells. Another study found that PEMF therapy in mice daily resulted in a 30% to 70% breast tumor reduction and PEMF therapy for 360 minutes daily suppressed tumor growth at week 4 of therapy.

In one of the clinical trials, PEMF therapy was offered to 28 patients with advanced cancer including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, glioblastoma and HCC carcinoma. None of the patients reported any side effects and four patients reported stable disease including a patient with thyroid cancer with biopsy-proven lung metastases, a patient diagnosed with mesothelioma metastatic to the abdomen, a patient with non-small-cell lung cancer and a patient with pancreatic cancer with biopsy-proven liver metastases.

TENS PEMF for Fatigue

November – Fighting Fatigue

So many of us write off fatigue and the effects of fatigue, particularly at this time of year. After all, we will be going on vacation soon, so why worry about exhaustion now? The truth is that fatigue should be a red flag in terms of your health and if you have a Rife PEMF machine, then you should consider taking advantage of the available programs to support health and to help you fight off fatigue.

November is like running the last five kilometers of a marathon. The finish line is in sight; Christmas vacation is around the corner; you deserve a medal for your efforts throughout the year; and yet, after burning both ends of the candle for the past nine months, the finish line almost seems out of reach. That is why the November Rife Health Challenge is going to focus on fatigue and how you can use your Rife PEMF device to fight the effects of fatigue.

We urge you not to write off the fact that you are feeling fatigued. Although mainstream medicine sees fatigue as a symptom of a disease, the truth is that energy is one of the most direct signs of your state of health. If you have no energy, the body has no energy, and if your body has no energy then you cannot maintain a healthy state.

Start paying attention to how energetic you feel. When your energy levels are low, act. Don’t wait for the body to become ill to force you to rest. Rest, relaxation and sleep are all vital to give your body the time to heal and to allow your body to produce the energy you need to thrive.

PEMF and TENS therapy have been shown to support a healthy metabolism, to reduce fatigue and to improve overall health by supporting mechanisms like circulation and tissue oxygenation. These factors all contribute to improving your energy levels. The following programs can help you through these last few weeks before Christmas.

For the November Health Challenge commit to improving sleep and energy to fight fatigue.

  1. Run the Schumann program daily, last thing at night before bed using whole body treatment. Better still, use the Maxi MAT and run Schumann while you are sleeping. Improving the quality of sleep will go a long way to helping you reduce fatigue.
  2. Run circulation twice a week to improve overall energy levels. Circulation brings vital oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the body. By providing these building blocks to your cells, your body will automatically have more energy.

Read our latest blog article for more information on how TENS and PEMF therapy boosts energy to reduce fatigue.

TENS for Fatigue

TENS PEMF for Fatigue

TENS and PEMF therapy boost energy to reduce fatigue

Fatigue is one of the first signs that your body needs help and yet most of us ignore this vital clue, with devastating health consequences. Stress and lack of sleep are currently the considered the demons of modern health and they have been recognized as the underlying cause of cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and even diabetes. Both stress and lack of sleep are characterized by fatigue. TENS and PEMF therapy boost energy to reduce fatigue, but it is vital to acknowledge and recognize that you are fatigued.

TENS and PEMF therapy boost energy to reduce fatigueThe bottom line is that nothing in the universe can exist without energy. From the smallest nuclear particles to entire solar systems, without energy systems fail and your body is one of those systems. Each cell produces energy for you, and for its own health and survival. If you are low on energy, your cells are low on energy. If your cells are low on energy they cannot function properly and your body will suffer if you do not take steps to remedy the problem.

There are of course several ways to solve your energy crisis. Diet, sleep, healthy periods of rest and relaxation, all give your body the chance to heal and regenerate to allow it to produce the levels of energy you need. But diet and rest are not the only elements that provide energy to the body.

Your body is an electrical system. Your cells use electrical potential to produce energy. Your muscles use electrical energy to contract and relax. Your brain uses electrical energy to transmit thoughts, to retrieve memories and to allow you to function both mentally and physically. In fact, every organ in the body relies on electrical energy to function. TENS and PEMF therapy boost energy to reduce fatigue by supplying energy directly to the cells and to the body.

TENS and PEMF therapy boost energy to reduce fatigue – The Research

Although the production of energy is an exceedingly complex subject and far beyond the scope of this article, put simply, your cells manufacture energy by creating situations that produce electricity or electrical potential. Your cells, for example, use different compounds like salt to create an electrical potential between the cell and the surrounding area.

Salt is essentially a positive sodium and a negative chloride atom. A positive charge on one side of the cell membrane and a negative charge on the other side of a membrane creates an electrical potential that produces electrical energy and this is one of the energy sources your cells use to function.

There are hundreds if not thousands of compounds involved in producing energy and by measuring the compounds that play a role in the production of energy you can see if certain types of therapies affect the energy of cells.

Research on TENS and PEMF therapy have shown that this type of therapy affects energy levels at cellular level. A study published over 25 years ago showed that electrical stimulation of muscle at 10Hz for extended periods of time increased the activity of one of certain compounds by three-fold. The enzyme that it increased is called cytochrome-c-oxidase, a compound that plays a vital role in allowing your cells to produce energy.

You may not have heard of cytochrome-c-oxidase but you have probably come across glucose and you probably also know that glucose is inextricably linked to energy production. In another study on electrical stimulation at 10Hz, researches used brain imaging to show that stimulation at 10Hz increased glucose metabolism in the brain. In other words, it increased the amount of energy the brain cells produced.

Although compounds like glucose and cytochrome-c-oxidase can indicate an increase in energy, measurement of these compounds is not the only way to determine if PEMF and TENS increase energy. People are more than capable of determining whether a certain type of therapy has increased their energy levels.

There are in fact numerous studies that show that patients had an increase in energy and a decrease in fatigue levels after PEMF or electrical therapies like TENS.

In a double-placebo controlled trial done on patients suffering from MS induced fatigue, researchers found that PEMF therapy resulted in improvements in fatigue and in improvements in the patients’ overall quality of life. TENS therapy was shown to reduce fatigue, clot formation and pain in patients with dysmenorrhea. In this study said:

“Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation alone provided good to excellent subjective pain relief in 42.4% of subjects, compared with 3.2% with placebo TENS, and significantly reduced diarrhea, menstrual flow, clot formation, and fatigue compared with placebo TENS.”

TENS and PEMF have been successfully used in MS, Fibromyalgia, dysmenorrhea and a host of other conditions. There are even studies on healthy individuals showing that TENS and PEMF therapy can improve energy levels and overall athletic performance. In fact, numerous athletes are turning to PEMF for sport training and improvement.

TENS and PEMF therapy boost energy to reduce fatigue – Simple energy

The beauty of PEMF and TENS therapy is that it provides a safe, affordable and simple way to provide the body with additional energy. It has also been shown to improve circulation and that leads to higher oxygenation of the tissues which ultimately leads to a healthier you. Practitioners also use TENS therapy for inflammation. Since inflammation, stress and lack of sleep often go hand in hand, TENS and PEMF therapy could be a valuable tool in reducing the three major risks to overall health.

TENS therapy for Inflammation

If you suffer from chronic inflammation, then TENS therapy for inflammation may offer a drug free alternative to help reduce chronic inflammation. Inflammation is your body’s way of protecting itself from damage and harm and it is therefore a vital part of the healing process. And yet, inflammation is being blamed as the underlying cause of many of the diseases we face these days, so how does the healing process go wrong? Why are so many people suffering from conditions that are caused by inflammation? What can be done to help to reduce inflammation without compromising the body’s ability to heal? The answer to many of these questions can be found in understanding why inflammation can be so detrimental.

TENS therapy for InflammationTENS Therapy for Inflammation – Conditions

Inflammation has been linked to joint pain, back pain, arthritis, osteoarthritis, auto-immune disorders, lupus, allergies, Crohns disease, atherosclerosis, cancer, heart attacks, strokes, memory loss and even premature aging.

TENS therapy for InflammationAs mentioned above however, inflammation is vital for healing, so why is the healing process damaging your body? The simple answer is that the environment we live in, the stress of modern life and the modern diet have created a situation that places your body under constant threat. Your body is therefore constantly producing inflammation to protect and heal the body.

Inflammation results is an area of the body becoming red, swollen and painful. Chronic inflammation and inflammation that affects the body internally may not exhibit any symptoms until it is too late. It is therefore vital to ensure you keep inflammation under control.

TENS therapy for Inflammation – A potential answer

The problem with inflammation and particularly chronic forms of inflammation, is that the process often becomes a vicious cycle. Inflammation helps the body to eliminate the bacteria, toxins and damaged tissue from any area but this process can actually lead to the area becoming damaged and this is how inflammation becomes the underlying cause for more inflammation.

There are two forms of inflammation – acute inflammation and chronic inflammation. Acute inflammation occurs suddenly as a result of damage or a threat – like an injury or an attack by viruses or bacteria like when you get the flu. This inflammation is resolved as soon as the body is healed or the threat is removed.

Chronic inflammation on the other hand is a constant low grade response to a constant threat to your body. This type of inflammation is dangerous because chronic inflammation damages the body leading to further inflammation. This is the type of inflammation that we need to guard against.

But how do we reduce chronic inflammation? Although it sounds simple enough to change what we eat, changing the air we breathe, the water we d
rink and elements like stress, can be impossible to change and once you suffer from chronic or low grade inflammation, it can be extremely hard to reverse the cycle.

You could use medications like NSAIDS or Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but they come with their own set of side-effects and disadvantages which often make them unsuitable for long-term use. That is where PEMF and TENS therapy for inflammation could offer a safe alternative for the long term reduction and control of inflammation.

TENS therapy for Inflammation – The research

TENS and PEMF therapy have been available for the last three decades and the FDA have approved numerous devices for use in pain and other inflammatory conditions. Although these therapies are a fairly new addition to mainstream medicine, there are more and more studies on these technologies which are showing that both TENS and PEMF may have an important role to play in the reduction of both pain and inflammation.

TENS therapy for InflammationOne study showed that exposure to PEMF therapy` at 5.1 Hz and 7.8 Hz led to a decrease of 37% in the production of TNF-α, one of the compounds responsible for inflammation. Decreasing the compounds that promote inflammation can obviously be helpful for controlling chronic inflammation.

A study on TENS therapy for wound healing also showed that TENs therapy led to a decrease in the amount of TNF-α as well as two other compounds that are responsible for producing the inflammatory response. This study showed that TENS therapy at 2Hz shortened the wound heling process and the study concluded that the therapy did so by inhibiting the inflammation phase of the wound healing process.

Finally, in a study done on breast reduction patients, PEMF therapy reduced the amounts of IL-1 in the wound exudates of the patients. After one hour, IL-1 levels were 275% lower than the untreated group. The treated group also had a 57% decrease in average pain scores at one hour after treatment and a 300% decrease at 5 hours after treatment compared with the untreated group.

The studies mentioned are just a few of the current studies showing that TENS and PEMF therapy can have a role to play in reducing inflammation and other studies on PEMF and TENS therapy for inflammation have also shown that these therapies have very few side-effects and they are safe for long term use.

TENS therapy for Inflammation – The therapy

So what should you look for if you want to add TENS or PEMF therapy to your current inflammation protocol? The first thing you should do is consult your physician about these types of therapies to see if they are suitable to add to your current treatment protocol. You should also ensure you invest in a device which has been legally licensed as a medical device.

Some unethical device manufacturers in South Africa market devices that are not legally licensed and could be dangerous. Every device should have their South African license number displayed on the device. Do not be fooled by manufacturers who tell you they conform to international standards and therefore do not need a license. Your health is in their hands.

Finally, add TENS therapy for inflammation to your daily treatment regimen. The inflammation program on the MA200 runs for just 24 minutes a day and you can use the cylinders or body pads for the session making it a simple addition to your daily routine. Or join our monthly health challenge and get the most out of your MA200 device.

Why Half of Our Clients are Healthy

Although the Rife UA offers programs for over 700 conditions, the majority of our customers have a Rife PEMF device, not to treat a specific condition, but rather to promote and maintain their overall health.

Other than supplements, there are few drugs and medications in the world that are aimed at promoting health rather than treating disease. The truth is that medication is not suitable for such purposes. In contrast, alternative health therapies like the Rife PEMF device and others can help to support your health, thereby preventing the conditions in the body that promote disease.

Here are the top reasons why our healthy clients have the Rife PEMF:

  • To combat the effects of stress and inflammation
  • To promote and ensure healthy sleep
  • To support healthy circulation
  • To improve energy levels and increase metabolism

RifeChallengeMA2002

Stress and inflammation

We all know that stress can take a toll on our health but few people realize the underlying mechanisms that stress causes that do damage to the body. When you are stressed, the entire metabolism of your body changes. Your body goes into fight or flight mode, healing is switched off and so is the immune system, leaving you open to threat and disease. Stress is invariably accompanied by inflammation which actually damages the body. Where the inflammation occurs depends on each individual. Inflammation has been directly linked to cancer and many of the other modern diseases we face.

PEMF and Tens therapy has been used for decades to help to reduce anxiety and stress and to treat various forms of depression. Although chronic depression and anxiety are often long term conditions we all suffer from occasional bouts of stress or anxiety occasionally. Ignoring these periods can be extremely detrimental to your health.

Our healthy clients know that using the Rife PEMF during stressful periods helps them to reduce the stress and the effects of stress on the body, keeping them healthy and not only coping with what life throws at them but thriving.

Sleep

Sleep is crucial for maintaining good mental and physical health. Without sufficient quality sleep, your body cannot regenerate and your immune system cannot create the cells vital for protecting you. Stress and lack of sleep often go hand in hand and they are truly the Bonny and Clyde of ill-health.

TENS and PEMF can help you and your body get a good night’s rest by increasing sleep time and increasing sleep quality, which in turn improves quality of life. By promoting healthy sleep, you are promoting overall health.

Promoting healthy periods of sleep, particularly when you are stressed on struggling to sleep is a kay to supporting your overall health and our healthy clients all report using the sleep frequencies to support and improve their sleeping habits.

Circulation

Circulation is the key to a healthy body and a healthy life. Circulation is the process which provides your entire body with nutrients to thrive and it is the process which removes toxins from the entire system. Without healthy circulation tissues do not get the oxygen they need to survive.

Our modern, sedentary lifestyle has played a huge role in reducing circulation and causing ill-health. Exercise is the best way to help to improve circulation, but the Rife PEMF can also help to support and promote circulation, particularly for people who can’t move around a lot or who don’t necessarily have the time to do so every day.

Studies show that TENS therapy can improve blood flow by up to 35% thereby supporting healthy wound healing and circulation. These are by no means the only studies either.

Using the Rife PEMF device daily to promote healthy circulation can help to support your overall health, particularly when you are not able to get out of those all-important meetings. Our healthy clients also list circulation as a regular part of their health protocol.

Energy & Metabolism

The most profound benefit and reason why healthy people use the Rife PEMF device daily is because TENS and PEMF therapy directly supports healthy energy levels and metabolism. We tend to think of energy levels as a determination of how much we can do every day, and while that is important, we seldom think of energy levels in terms of health.

Every cell in your body produces energy for you. When the cells are low on energy, you are low on energy. When your cells don’t have enough energy your health is directly affected. This means when you feel your batteries are running low, you are actually on your way to ill-health.

TENS and PEMF have been shown to support metabolism and energy levels at cellular level. Not only can the Rife PEMF device supplement your energy levels, but it can do so at cellular level to help you achieve your maximum potential. In fact, TENS therapy is so effective at supporting energy levels that studies show TENS improves endurance, exercise and muscle strength in athletes.

Our healthy clients report that energy support is one of the programs they rely on for overall health.

TENS PEMF Therapy for Prostate

In this stressful world, sleep is vital to allow your body to regenerate and heal. When sleep is reduced by stress, there is a double effect on your body: Lack of sleep and stress increase inflammation and your body has less time to heal. An enlarged prostate not only interrupts sleep but can be uncomfortable and even debilitating. Although surgery is the preferred option for reducing BPH, there are other non-invasive alternatives like TENS PEMF therapy for prostate that can offer you symptomatic and long term relief for this condition.

An enlarged prostate is a common complaint for men as they get older with 60% of men over the age of sixty diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. In fact, most men will face a diagnosis of enlarged prostate at some point in their lifetime, and for most individuals the condition can severely interfere with their quality of life.

TENS PEMF Therapy for Prostate

BPH is caused by an enlarged prostate gland. This gland surrounds the urethra and as it increases in size, it begins to restrict or even block the urethra, making urination difficult. The symptoms of BPH reflect this, namely:

  • An urgent need to urinate which can often result in interrupted sleep
  • Hesitation before urine begins to flow
  • Straining to urinate
  • A sense that the bladder is full
  • Leakage or dribbling after urination

Although an enlarged prostate has been indicated as the cause, the underlying cause of why the prostate becomes enlarged has yet to be definitively identified. Doctors are however in agreement that lack of circulation and inflammation play a pivotal role in the enlargement process. Since TENS PEMF therapy for prostate can help to improve circulation and reduce inflammation and address other symptoms like pain and even sleep, this type of therapy is a logical choice where it comes to addressing BPH.

TENS PEMF therapy for prostate- Pain

Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation therapy or TENS has been used for decades for various forms of pain relief and is now widely accepted as safe and effective for severe forms of pain like labor pain. There are even studies that show that TENS is more effective than analgesics in addressing chronic pelvic pain and prostatitis.

In recent years, various studies on TENS PEMF therapy for prostate have come to light. In 2008, a study compared TENS and analgesics for the treatment of chronic prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. This study found that TENS therapy was not only effective for the treatment of chronic pain and prostatitis but in fact outperformed the other therapies by a significant margin.

The results of study were as follows:

This study used 60Hz and 100Hz and treatment was done 5 days a week for four weeks.

But TENS and PEMF therapy don’t only address the pain associated with the condition. There are also studies which show that PEMF therapy can be very effective in reducing inflammation.

TENS PEMF therapy for prostate – Inflammation

It is the inflammation associated with BPH that accounts for some of the enlargement of the prostate and consequently some of the symptoms like reduced prostate volume, reduced urine flow and increased urine residue. Studies show that both chronic and acute inflammation can play a role in the proliferation of prostatic tissue and that the oxidative stress caused by inflammation can lead to tissue damage within the prostate gland which results in hyperplastic growth. Reducing inflammation can therefore be supportive in addressing these symptoms and the condition in general and may even play a role in preventing the condition.

The problem with prevention however, is that most anti-inflammatories cannot be taken on a long term basis. TENS PEMF therapy for prostate is however different. TENS therapy and PEMF therapy have been shown to be both safe and effective in the long term and these therapies can be used prophylactically too.

In 2011 a study on pulsed electromagnetic therapy for benign prostate hyperplasia published in the International Journal of Nephrology, TENS PEMF therapy for prostate was shown to be an extremely effective, non-invasive therapy alternative for BPH.

The study included 22 patients who were suffering from BPH and who were given placebo or electromagnetic therapy. The group who received PEMF therapy at radiofrequencies had reduced prostate volume, reduced urine residue, and improved urine flow rate. The PEMF group also had improved IPSS scores International Prostate Symptom Score.

These are by no means the only studies on TENS PEMF therapy for prostate either. In 2011, a canine study on BPH revealed that PEMF therapy reduced prostatic volume by 57%. The study concluded that the efficacy of PEMF on BPH in dogs was suggestive that this type of therapy would be suitable for humans and that reduction of blood supply may be a factor in the underlying causes of BPH.

TENS PEMF therapy for prostate – Circulation

As with any condition, circulation is a vital part of supporting the healing process and in fact supporting health in general. Although TENS PEMF studies focusing on circulation in BPH are lacking, there are an abundance of studies on TENS and PEMF therapy where it comes to promoting circulation.

The most recent study on the effects of PEMF on circulation was published in the Journal of Bioelectromagnetics focusing on individuals with diabetes mellitus. This study used ultrasound biomicroscopy to observe the effects of pulsed electromagnetic therapy on blood flow and circulation. The researchers concluded that PEMF therapy could increase blood flow velocity in even the smallest veins in people with or without diabetes mellitus.

TENS PEMF therapy for prostate studies and research

While TENS is effective for the pain associated with chronic prostatitis and other pelvic conditions like BPH, PEMF therapy has also been shown to be effective at managing these conditions. PEMF therapy can improve circulation and it has been shown to reduce inflammation. TENS and PEMF have even been shown to help to reduce stress and anxiety, and to improve overall quality of life.

When you combine the benefits of PEMF therapy with TENS therapy thereby addressing the symptoms as well as some of the underlying causes of the condition then you have a powerful combination for treating BPH and other prostate conditions. When you consider that TENS PEMF therapy can be used prophylactically, then you have to wonder why more physicians aren’t telling their male patients about TENS PEMF therapy for prostate health.

TENS Therapy for Asthma

According to the Global Asthma Report published in 2014, South Africa has one of the leading mortality rates where it comes to asthma, in spite of the fact that asthma can be successfully managed and treated. The report stated that the majority of asthma deaths were due to inappropriate management of asthma due to an over-reliance on medication that provides relief, rather than strategies aimed at asthma prevention. TENS therapy for asthma has been shown to reduce inflammation and inflammatory markers, and has been shown to help to reduce the condition. This type of therapy could therefore be a valuable tool in the management and reduction of asthma.

TENS Therapy for Asthma

TENS Therapy for Asthma

TENS Therapy for Asthma – What is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic long-term inflammatory disease of the respiratory system. Inflammatory markers therefore play a prominent role in the development and continuance of the condition. Cytokines and leukotrienes are compounds that are responsible for your body's inflammatory response.

When your body reacts to something, like an environmental allergen for example, then it produces inflammatory markers like cytokines which form part of your body’s protective system. In the case of asthma, these cytokines cause the tissues in the lungs to become inflamed. The inflammation then causes a restriction in the airways and this hinders your ability to breathe normally. A reduction in inflammation and your body’s inflammatory response can therefore be a valuable strategy in the prevention or reduction of the underlying causes of asthma. In fact, medications aimed at long term reduction and prevention of asthma are based on this principle.

TENS Therapy for Asthma - Inflammation

Studies show that cytokines like interleukin 1 play a very important role in the development of allergies and asthma. Some medications are even aimed at reducing these interleukins in order to treat and prevent asthma. But what many people don’t realize is that studies show that therapies like TENS therapy for asthma and PEMF therapies are also effective at reducing inflammation and the levels of inflammatory cytokines in the body.

In a study on the post-operative effects of PEMF, researchers found that patients who had received PEMF therapy after the operation had 275% less IL-1 beta concentrations than patients who had not received the therapy. Although the concentrations were measured in the wounds of the patients, there are numerous other studies that indicate the TENS and PEMF therapies may be effective at reducing inflammatory markers like interleukin in the body. Reduce the inflammation and you can effectively manage and even reduce conditions like asthma.

TENS Therapy for Asthma – The Research and Studies

The studies don’t only focus on the reduction of inflammation. There are also studies done specifically on the effect of TENS therapy for asthma.

In a randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of Respiratory Physiology, researchers found that TENS therapy reduced the decline of FEV1 in patients with asthma. FEV1 or forced expiratory volume is one of the most important measurements used to assess respiratory health. FEV1 is simply the amount of air you can exhale in one second. FEV1 values are measured and then converted into a percentage of normal based on each patient.

Exercise often leads to a reduced FEV1 in asthma patients since exercise often exacerbates asthma. By reducing the decline in FEV1 values, the study effectively illustrates the preventative action of TENS therapy in asthma patients.

The study also found that patients who received TENS therapy for asthma may prolong exercise training and duration and that it may also allow for higher exercise intensity in these patients.

Another randomized controlled study done on patients with chronic pulmonary obstructive disease confirmed that TENS therapy for asthma increased FEV1 in patients with COPD.

TENS Therapy for Asthma – Quality of life

Although FEV1 is an important tool in the measurement of asthma, it is not the only consideration for asthma patients. In fact, I am sure that if asked, the effects of asthma on quality of life would rate far higher than an FEV1 value. In a study done on TENS therapy in children with asthma, researchers found that after eight weeks of treatment, quality of life as expressed by the pediatric asthma quality-of-life questionnaire was significantly improved in the children who received TENS therapy.

TENS therapy for Asthma – Summary of Benefits

The benefits of TENS and PEMF therapy extend far beyond FEV1 values. Here are just some of the benefits of using the Rife PEMF device to help you manage or control your asthma:

  • TENS PEMF therapy is non-invasive
  • TENS PEMF therapy has almost no side-effects
  • PEMF therapy can help to reduce the body's inflammatory response
  • A reduction in inflammation means an overall reduction in asthma
  • TENS and PEMF therapy are cost effective long-term solutions for health

TENS Therapy for Asthma – What to Expect

Most people who invest in a TENS or PEMF device, for some reason expect immediate, almost miraculous, results. They don’t however seem to expect the same from medication. The truth is that PEMF and TENS are highly effective at reducing inflammation and reducing the other symptoms associated with chronic conditions like asthma, but these devices are not miracle machines.

If you treat with asthma medication, you will treat asthma for life. If you treat asthma with TENS or PEMF, you will be treating asthma for life. The only difference between medication and TENS is that TENS has no side effects. You won’t have to keep paying for your Rife PEMF device year after year unlike medication, the cost of which keeps escalating every year.

You can therefore expect the following if you choose to treat your asthma with a Rife PEMF device:

  • A gradual reduction in inflammation
  • Which could lead to a gradual reduction in the asthma you are experiencing
  • Which could allow for a gradual increase in the amount of exercise you are able to do
  • Which could lead to an increase in health and quality of life.

Isn’t it time to add Rife PEMF therapy to your asthma prevention strategies? PEMF therapy is also effective for other chronic inflammatory conditions like allergies. Click here to read about PEMF for Sinusitis and allergies.

PEMF Therapy for Dogs

PEMF Therapy for Dogs

If you have ever had a pet in pain, then you know as an owner how helpless it makes you feel. My cat has arthritis and my heart used to break when I watched her take our stairs, one at a time, in such an awkward manner. Although this article is about PEMF therapy for dogs, the information applies to all of your furry friends. I have been treating my cat for arthritis with my Rife PEMF and I can personally say that I am astounded by the difference in her.

Here is some of the information on how and why PEMF therapy for dogs and other animals offers an effective and affordable pain therapy alternative for your pets.

Why PEMF therapy for Dogs?

PEMF therapy has successfully been used for a variety of conditions in humans and these benefits seem to be available to your pets too. From PEMF therapy for arthritis, to TENS therapy for back pain, TENS and PEMF machines are becoming a very popular alternative for controlling pain and treating various conditions in humans and animals. The FDA has even cleared numerous PEMF and TENS devices for veterinary use.

To date, the studies on PEMF and TENS have found them to be safe and also relatively side-effect free. The same cannot always be said for medication. Although there are a number of drugs that can help to reduce pain in your pets, the cost of the drugs and their side-effects should not be overlooked. New warnings on NSAIDS for humans must alert us to the fact that drugs are not always as safe as they seem.

Medication comes with the extra complication of trying to ensure your pet gets its recommended daily dose of medication. If you have cats like mine, trying to get them to take tablets can be a life-threatening exercise for both the pet involved and the pet owner – namely me J.

TENS and PEMF therapy on the other hand is simple. I just place the PEMF MAT in my pet’s bed and start the device when I go to bed. My cat receives PEMF therapy while sleeping and I get to enjoy another scratch free day.

How PEMF Therapy for Dogs can be helpful

This type of therapy increases the amount of nitric oxide in the circulatory system. Nitric oxide supports the healing of tissues and bones and by supporting and promoting the healing process, the duration of pain is shortened.

PEMF also reduces inflammation which is one of the direct causes of pain. Inflammation is the process that causes injuries to swell, go red and feel painful. By reducing inflammation and the inflammatory response at the site of the injury, the intensity of the pain and the duration of the pain can be reduced.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy also improves circulation. Once again, circulation is a vital element for healing and by increasing circulation, you increase nutrients and oxygen provided to the area that needs to be healed. This in turn reduces the healing time and therefore the pain associated with the condition or injury.

TENS and PEMF are also effective at providing drug free pain relief. In fact, many devices are now prescribed by medical practitioners and vets specifically for pain relief where other therapy options are not available or where other types of therapy have been ineffective.

Human studies and PEMF Therapy for Dogs

Sadly, studies on the reduction of pain by PEMF therapy for dogs are lacking, but there is probably a very reasonable explanation. We may feel a telepathic bond with our dogs, but trying to determine a reduction of pain on a clinical basis may prove a little difficult when you have to rely on the dog’s perception of pain, and their ability to rate their pain on a scale of one to ten, not to mention the fact they would also have to tell you about it. But that doesn’t mean there are no studies at all.

PEMF Therapy for DogsStudies on dogs are limited to prostate conditions and osteoarthritis and pain but these studies have shown how effective PEMF therapy for dogs can be. There are also studies on PEMF therapy for pain in humans, and these studies have shown that PEMF therapy is an effective alternative for pain management. And then there are our clients, like this delightful Boerboel who is enjoying his weekly Rife PEMF therapy.

In fact, we have had so many Rife PEMF owners tell us that they sometimes have to fight their pets for a chance on the Rife PEMF machine, that we have launched a PEMF MAT specifically for pets. The MAT makes it even easier to treat your cat or dog with PEMF therapy. My cats love the MAT and they literally jostle for position when we run the arthritis and pain frequencies.

PEMF Therapy for Dogs – other Conditions

The benefits of TENS and PEMF therapy for dogs are not only limited to pain control for your pet either. PEMF and TENS therapy can be effective as an adjunctive therapy or an alternative therapy for:

Dogs don’t suffer from some of the conditions above but they do suffer from conditions like arthritis and improving circulation and health can only be good for your pet.

The Rife Model MA200 offers over 200 programs that you can use to keep your family, and your furry family, healthy at the same time. The Rife PEMF for PETs comes with a large mat and two smaller mats to help you to treat your cats and dogs to provide a healthier life for your pets.
