Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) and Autism

University of New York has shown a special version of PEMF called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to promote the growth of new neurons in areas associated with learning and memory. "The effect on the stem cells is the most exciting finding," says Battaglia, who presented his results at a meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Boston.

Before you buy a Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy device read this important information on PEMFT!

PEMF influences cell behavior by inducing electrical changes within and around the cell. In order for cells to fulfill their tasks, they need energy. For this the cells need nutrients and oxygen. The resorption of these products and the disposal of waste products are controlled by electromagnetic energy. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Increased calcium transport stimulates the repair and growth of cartilage while at the same time decreasing pain.

It was found that disturbances in blood circulation and in metabolism play a key role in the development of diseases. These are reasons why electromagnetic energizing of the body can be used for a wide range of disturbances. A body full of energy is healthy and fit.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is extremely effective for Osteoporosis, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Sport injuries, Athletic performance, Fracture healing, Stress reduction, maintaining Health and Fitness, and many more conditions.

The most important features a PEMFT device should possess in order to be effective are adequate intensities, frequencies and pulse forms.
For detailed information on PEMFT technology, visit and reading this technical background information will assist in making the right choice before purchasing such a device.

Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy will be effective only if the pulsing electromagnetic signal is strong enough to penetrate deep inside the cells and bones. Since it is much more difficult to generate strong magnetic fields, many devices use low PEMF intensities, which have no effect whatsoever inside the body.

The most effective pulse form is the sinusoidal waveform, which should be combined with sufficient speed of magnetic induction in order to have optimal effects.

Each person responds somewhat differently to the same pulsing frequencies, so to make sure that PEMFT will be most effective you have to apply various different frequencies during the same therapy session. By the same token, the body adapts to single pulsing frequencies after just a few minutes. Therefore devices that offer only changes in intensity setting, in combination with one frequency pattern, become ineffective within 10 minutes.

The Curatron PEMF systems combine both intensity and frequency changes during the same therapy session, In order to neutralize the 'body adaptation' factor. This ensures a much higher efficacy than any other system.

Another important issue you should consider before purchasing a PEMF device is the ease of use: many systems have a lot of knobs, making it very difficult to operate. The Curatron is specifically designed for ease of use, with 4 controls only: start, stop, pause, and program number.

When choosing a pulsed electromagnetic field therapy device it is very important to know if the device meets all international specifications for safety according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and ISO standards (International Organization for Standaridization) for design and manufacturing of medical devices.

Check out the safety of the device you intend to purchase very carefully. You should aim to buy only from a manufacturer complying with the set out standards for manufacturing of medical devices and not just general electrical safety.
The Curatron systems make use of the best possible pulse form, which is the sinusoidal waveform. The Curatron system uses frequency modulated pulsed electromagnetic field technology, generating sufficient energy in combination with very fast speed of induction to obtain a real therapeutic effect.
The Curatron systems offer the best choice in diversity for the different models and accessories, including high energy coil designed to treat specific areas. By continuous use of a Curatron PEMFT system the energy level improves, health is stabilized and fitness increases. It is an ideal way to maintain your own good health!

o.k., i'd like to comment on a few things mentioned by philipson that i feel are inaccurate,..i've manufactured EarthPulse™ since developing the technology 9 years ago... here goes.

first, that sinusoidal waveform should be used... now, i'm not sure why proponents of a sinusoidal waveform believe it to be better...i don't know what science (but for experience) they base this on, but we've been using a pulsed square wave (vertical rise/fall) since inception in 2001 with exceptional results and NASA showed 4 times baseline neural tissue regeneration with a square wave. now, their study used alternating current (AC), but we don't believe AC is any better than pulsed DC (nor is AC part of the natural order of things) and the whole idea of EarthPulse™ was mimicking nature (albeit with more field amplitude).

second, as for signal amplitude...although my device has peak amplitude of up to 300 Gauss at the surface of its coil which but for the devices modeled after Pappas' device which are so powerful they'll make your limbs fly around, Sandyk, Jacobson and Anninos have beneficially affected Parkinson's and epilepsy with as little as Pico Tesla focused on the grey matter (without getting into it too deeply 1 pico testla = 1 to the minus 8...i.e. 1 with 7 zeros in FRONT...i.e. .00000001 GAUSS!
though, generally our device is used from under the mattress during the night yielding about .5-2 Gauss to the sleeping surface during the night. so much for the comment about low magnetic field intensity.

lastly,...FREQUENCY; although James Oschmann and other's believe a number of higher frequencies have benefit to different types of tissues, the sweet spot for tissue regeneration (especially neural tissue) is 10 Hz as proven by NASA. the reason is its beneficial affect upon the mitochondria that provide the organic energy for the cell. now, you can add alternative source of cellular energy with just about any kind of time varying field (sinusoidal, sawtooth, square), but getting the mitochondria to become more efficient is altogether different. 10 hz cause mitochondria to double their energy output even after the field is taken away. the other thing is that anything over 20 hz stresses the neuro system and the mitochondria. all of the devices besides ours use frequencies 20 hz and much higher. these will not be beneficial to brain waves. period. in my belief, the last thing you want to toss at an autistic brain.

do your homework. check prices, guarantee policies etc. don't get snow-jobbed by guys in white coats...after all, they're who got us all into this pickle in the first place. if you've got an autistic and you think it may be due to the ridiculous amount of crap injected into your newborn, i think you know what i mean.

the other thing you might think about is ease of application. and trying to get your autistic to sit still for 15 minutes or 1/2 an hour to apply the magnetic field. our forte is improving sleep and you can hide the EP under the mattress or behind the headboard.

you can find EarthPulse™ biomagnetic supplementation through any websearch and contact me directly through any of the email links or phone numbers there. cheers, Paul
