Are you one of the millions of Americans who suffers with Plantar Fasciitis? Did you know that PEMF therapy is a non-medical solution with proven results in treating foot pain? Come see me at Excell Therapeutic Bodywork… I’ve had great results helping people with plantar fasciitis find relief 😊
“With any injury, the body will take its usual time to repair. We know from the use of FDA approved (PEMF) devices, that fractures will heal in approximately half the time – so will open wounds, including surgical wounds.”
Lots of good info in this article- definitely worth a read, especially if you are an athlete or very active person!

Dr Pawluk is a Board Certified Family Physician and also an international expert in the medical use of electromagnetic fields. He has had great success treating patients with diabetes with PEMF therapy. Here is what he has to say about his experiences!

HOW DIABETES AFFECTS THE BODY
In normal digestion, glucose enters the bloodstream after being broken down from the food we eat. The pancreas produces insulin, which moves glucose from the bloodstream into muscle, fat, and liver cells, where it is used for energy. In a diabetic person, the pancreas either does not make enough insulin, cells do not respond to the insulin correctly, or both. Therefore, glucose doesn’t get moved into muscle, fat, and the liver.
A major negative part of the diabetic process is that tissues become robbed of circulation. Diabetics are always at a higher risk for poor circulation. This can be due to damage to the tiny blood vessels in the body (microcirculation) or due to plaque buildup in the larger blood vessels in the body. Both of these types of circulation damage make the blood vessels unable to deliver a sufficient amount of blood to cells.
Once circulation becomes compromised in the body, it begins to affect all organs and tissues to varying degrees. The most common problems seen in diabetics are retinopathy (damage in the nerves in the back of the eye), cataracts, macular degeneration, atherosclerosis (blockages in the blood vessels of the body – big and small), heart attacks, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), neuropathy (damage to the nerves throughout the body, especially in the gut and feet), Alzheimer’s disease, kidney failure, advanced arthritis, and overall impaired healing of the tissues, making them more prone to infection and slowing recovery.
The end products of high sugar levels (called advanced glycation end products, or AGEs) deposit in all soft tissues of the body – bone, nerves, joints, ligaments, and skin included. These AGEs never leave the tissues once they are deposited; they will be a silent scourge for diabetics for their entire lives.
PEMFS AND DIABETES
After my many years of medical practice, and more than 25 years of using magnetic therapies, I have seen truly life-altering and dramatic results from the use of PEMFs in diabetics. Not only do PEMF therapies help to condition all tissues to be as healthy as possible, especially as we get older, but they also accelerate the natural health recovery of diabetic tissues.
Since we can’t ever get rid of AGEs, all we can do is to make the tissues containing them be more healthy and resistant, and to recover and rebuild better long-term. This is exactly what PEMFs do. As I said, I have seen dramatic improvements in diabetics using PEMFs, when the usual options (including dramatic surgeries like amputations) were all that was considered. By changing diets and applying whole-body PEMFs, one of my own patients was reversed from having to have bilateral below-the-knee amputation of his legs.
This article really applies to both people and horses, often doctors and veterinarians are very quick to suggest steroid injections for joint or back pain, and certainly steroids have their place, but you must know that there are risks of complications, and also that there are alternatives!
