My PEMF therapy mat is one of my go-to at-home treatments for Lyme. It is considered one of the safe and non-invasive modalities to help with Lyme.
PEMF therapy uses bursts of low-level electromagnetic radiation to heal damaged tissues and bones, alleviate pain, and even help regenerate organs with infrared waves. PEMF therapy gives off electromagnetic radiation naturally and is released in pulses, so there is no extended exposure. These pulsed electromagnetic fields differ from those (EMFs) emitted from WiFi, microwaves, cell phones, electric wires, chargers, power lines, lighting, smart TVs, and Bluetooth devices. Those EMFs can disrupt sleep and cause fatigue, depression, and other health issues. Listen to the Lyme360+ Podcast with building biologist Diana Jabour to learn more about EMFs and reduce exposure.
The theory behind PEMF therapy is that the energy pulses and reenergizes the cells. In a study done at Yale University, researchers discovered that a drop in cell charge precedes any illness. PEMF therapy restores that chargeback to normal by stimulating the cell to produce negative ions.
You can go to a professional, such as a physical therapist or chiropractor, or purchase your own PEMF device. Like most Lyme treatments, PEMF therapy is not covered by insurance. I decided to buy my own PEMF mat to use every day. I have found the extended treatment to help relieve some of my chronic Lyme symptoms, such as: relieving chronic pain and inflammation, improving sleep, increasing circulation, regenerating nerves, reducing stress and fatigue, and increasing energy levels.
