NASA and PEMF therapy
You may have heard about Nasa when researching Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy, or you may have heard Noel Edmonds talking about his Pulsed Electromagnetic mat on TV and Nasa.
PEMF therapy has been heavily researched by NASA space station and is slowly but surely becoming more talked about in the UK and NewMed are actively the UK’s one-stop-shop to the therapy. In the USA however, PEMF therapy is very well known as it was introduced and founded by NASA.
Astronauts would report becoming sick and suffering from a lack of energy upon returning to earth. Scientists began researching into possible reasons as to why this could be. There findings? The astronauts were disconnected from the Earths natural magnetic field. So, NASA decided to equip there spaceships with electromagnetic field generators so astronauts would no longer feel the negative effects of being so far away from Earths magnetic field. NASA has studied PEMF therapy for a long time and has carried out many studies on it.
One of the leading studies on PEMF therapy was lead by Dr. Thomas Goodwin PhD. This study went on for 4 years. It found that PEMF therapy compared to other aspects such as static magnets and LED’s had the best effect in the healing and regeneration of cells etc. His team then went on to look closer at the frequency, intensity’s, and waveform’s. They spent over 3.5 million dollars to look closely into pulsed electromagnetic fields and PEMF therapy. This, however, is not the only study into this therapy. There are already over 7,000 others. This study was a ‘Landmark’ in proving PEMF therapy works and does improve the body’s health and wellbeing. Alongside recovery, healing and repairing cells/tissues.
PEMF therapy is not a brand new discovery. This therapy has been around for years!
