Can PEMF therapy help with sleep?
Recently I put a poll on NewMed’s twitter page asking people to vote for the next blog post topic, and PEMF for sleep was chosen.
According to the NHS most of us need around 8 hours of good quality sleep at night, to help function properly, but some people may need more or less. Stressful lifestyles, working late and watching TV at night are some of the factors that can leave our minds racing and keep us awake at night.
Sleep problems are very common, from nights where we find it hard to fall asleep and nights where we are woken during the night. There are also sleep conditions such as insomnia, night terrors and sleepwalking. Sleepless nights can affect our energy levels, mood and concentration leaving us grumpy and not working to our best! Continuous lack of sleep can impact health mentally and physically, leading to serious medical conditions.
There are many therapeutic approaches to help with sleep disorders, such as medications, herbs and supplements. Meditation, relaxation and breathing exercises are also used. But did you know that PEMF therapy can also be used? One of the most common things that we hear about at NewMed is an improvement in people’s sleep when they start using PEMF therapy.
PEMF therapy is useful for deep relaxation; help with falling asleep and maintaining sleep throughout the night. Pulsating magnetic fields stimulate the production of Melatonin in the pineal gland. Melatonin is one of the most important hormones for sleep and anti-aging. PEMF therapy also helps with the production of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) another important hormone for deep sleep.
There are several studies on sleep and PEMF that are useful to show that sleep problems can be helped with the use of PEMF.
Personally, I can’t be without PEMF now especially at night. I see it as an essential for life and the first thing I do when I jump into bed is switch on my Magnetovital to program 2. At home I have the full body mattress topper. I find that I will struggle to fall asleep without it now, and not sleep as deeply. When travelling I like to take the FlexPulse with me, and at bedtime I place one of the applicators under my pillow to get me sleepy.
It is important to do all that we can to deal with any sleep issues and ensure we have a good quality night’s sleep.
Would you consider PEMFs as a way to help you fall asleep?
