PEMF- Benefits | PEMF Wellness Technology | PEMF 8000

PEMF is a benefit for Mankind from infant to the geriatric.  PEMF will lead to a change in the paradigm of medicine.











Dr. Linus Pauling — Double Nobel Prize Winner

What is an electromagnetic field? What are PEMFs?

If you have ever held two magnets in your hands, tried to force them together, and felt a resistance between them, then you have experienced a magnetic field. That type of magnetic field is produced by a static magnet and is called a static magnetic field.

A changing magnetic field (such as a magnetic field moving through a coil) generates an electric field (which would drive a current in the coil). This forms the basis for many electrical generators and motors. Similar to the way that a changing magnetic field generates an electric field, a changing electric field generates a magnetic field. Since the magnetic field is being generated by an electric current, it’s called an electromagnetic field – a physical field produced by moving electrical charges. PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field.

Magnetic fields affect the behavior of any other charged objects in the vicinity of the field. This is the fundamental basis for their therapeutic use. Our bodies are electric – every heartbeat generates electromagnetic waves throughout the blood vessels of the body, stimulating tissues at a cellular level. External magnetic fields and the normal electric and electromagnetic fields produced by the body interact. So, a magnetic field passing through our whole body will have an electromagnetic effect on each of our 70 trillion cells. As a result, magnetic fields act in basic and fundamental ways on molecules and tissues. They affect the most basic functions of all cells—human, animal, and plant included.

What are some basic cell functions, and how do magnetic fields facilitate them?

Some of the basic actions of a cell are to generate energy to eliminate waste, to repair and regenerate itself, and perform its predetermined functions based on the cell’s type and location in the body. Magnetic fields cause or increase motion of ions and electrolytes in the tissues and fluids of the body. It’s both easy and quick to move an ion or electrolyte in a living organism using magnetic fields. This movement stimulates a vast array of chemical and electric actions in the tissues of the body, helping them to rebalance or heal themselves where necessary.

All cells need energy to function. Cellular energy requires ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and is fundamental to all cell and body functions and is necessary to sustain life itself. ATP regulates cell metabolism by transporting chemical energy within our cells. Low ATP levels cause our cells to be sick, and decreases their ability to heal, regenerate, or function properly. Through the increased motion of ions and electrolytes, magnetic fields help cells increase their energy (or “charge”) by up to 500%.

Why do I need treatment at a cellular level?

Magnetic fields also affect the charge of the cell membrane, which allows membrane channels to open up. These channels are like the doors and windows of a house. By opening cell channels, nutrients are better able to enter the cell, and waste is more easily eliminated from the cell. This helps to rebalance and restore optimum cell function. If you restore enough cells, they will all work more efficiently. Cells of the same type come together to make tissues, and those tissues come together to make organs. So, by restoring or maintaining cellular function, you will, in turn, restore or maintain organ function, allowing the entire body to function better. We all know that the body ages over time. Maintaining the function of every individual cell at an optimal level every day is an important part of slowing aging.

Can PEMF therapy protect me from future illnesses?

Cellular “injury”, the state of a cell when it is not healthy, leads to disease conditions. Magnetic fields protect against cell injury by improving circulation, repair processes, and energy, and increasing special stress proteins in the cells. These proteins are used to prevent cell breakdown and wear and tear, as well as help speed recovery from injury. Magnetic fields balance cells, tissues and bodily functions at very fundamental levels, even before damage and problems become obvious to you.

I thought magnetic fields were bad for me.

There are distinct differences in the effects of devices at various frequency ranges, from extremely low frequencies (ELFs), to very low frequencies (VLFs), to microwave level frequencies, radio frequencies, infrared and ultraviolet frequencies, and more. Most magnetic field exposure risk comes from power lines and cell phones, because of their particular exposure times or field strengths and frequencies. These frequencies and intensities, known as electro-smog, can induce heat in the tissues of the body and modify genes, and therefore can damage cells. Most PEMF devices we recommend produce frequencies in the ELF to VLF range, since they do not induce heating actions. The home-based devices we promote have carefully selected frequencies which are most natural and balancing to the body. Our recommended treatment devices have a very safe track record – even the much higher intensity and frequency diagnostic MRI machines have been found to be safe to the people that operate them daily, as long as the safety directions are followed.

For more detailed information about the safety of PEMF therapy, see our safety section.

How quickly will my illness or health issue improve?

Minor imbalances in individual cells can be rebalanced very easily before they become an obvious problem. Regrettably, many people wait until they have a significant health issue before they seek treatment with a PEMF system or get a magnetic system for their own home use. By this time, some problems have become too deep-seated to reverse, and only symptom control remains possible. It is important to say that PEMFs are not expected to cure disease. Their role is to stimulate the various functions of the body so that the body can better support and heal itself. Understanding the extent of a health problem will help the individual to have realistic expectations of the time required to produce expected or desired results. If the problem took a long time to get to where it is now, PEMFs may take a long time to give the greatest benefit – and may never produce hoped-for results if the damage is too great. That doesn’t mean they won’t work, and it doesn’t mean you won’t get significant health benefits. We need to respect the body’s healing timelines and processes, and work positively with them. When treatment is begun, the order of healing will follow the body’s own wisdom of what tissue and symptoms will be cleared first, second, etc. Patience and acceptance of this natural order will aid in the healing process.

Which system is the best?

You wouldn’t walk into a pharmacy and ask for the best medication to make you healthy without first discussing what problems you are trying to treat—the same is true of PEMF systems. Some health problems require higher intensity fields to get the best benefit. Some require a wider range of frequencies. Sometimes a person’s sensitivity determines which system is best for them. Sometimes affordability is the primary concern. There are a variety of PEMF systems available because there is no one “best” system. Only when we understand what health issues are of greatest concern to an individual can we begin to determine which system is most likely to achieve the desired results. Our experience is that most PEMF systems will provide at least some benefit, even if not the optimal system.

What can I do to improve the effects of PEMFs in my body?

Since most of the effects of magnetic fields happen because of how they act on ions, especially calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium, these ions and electrolytes need to be at the right levels in the body. It is difficult to heal depleted tissues without sound nutrition. Supplements may also be quite helpful for magnetic therapy to be most effective. Dr. Pawluk usually recommends magnesium supplementation and adequate amounts of daily water. Additionally, some individuals (particularly women) need extra melatonin to optimize health while using PEMFs.

What are some of the basic beneficial actions PEMFs will have in my body?

Increased Circulation

One of the most basic functions magnetic fields have in the body is to increase circulation. When a cell (such as a red blood cell) is injured or ill, it does not hold its ideal charge. This causes red cells to “stick” together, making circulation slow. When a magnetic field passes through the red cell, the membrane becomes properly charged, allowing the cell to repel itself and keep itself separate from other red cells, thereby increasing circulation. In addition, PEMFs increase various chemicals in the blood vessel walls that cause the blood vessels to dilate, improving the amount of blood flowing through the vessels and therefore increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues.

Poor circulation makes tissues unhealthy and prone to disease and breakdown. Improved circulation helps tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need, while expelling the waste they produce. Good circulation helps with tissue healing and regeneration. The result of improved circulation is the reduction of swelling and the removal of bruising.

Enhanced Muscle Function

Muscle energy, needed for muscles to work, is developed through a process called Myosin Phosphorylation. Myosin is muscle, and phosphorylation is energy (ATP) production. Optimal energy allows muscles to work harder and longer, and recover more quickly from their work. Muscles that are contracted or in spasm are better able to relax, decreasing tension and reducing the pain caused by spasm.

Decreased Inflammation

Inflammation is a cascade of physiologic processes initiated by the body to repair cellular damage in tissues by increasing the blood flow to the damaged area and increasing the number of good inflammatory cells. The process of inflammation is generated and supported by the interaction of a number of immune cell types, with other cell types (like T cells) playing a regulatory role in the cascade effect. Inflammation is a necessary and beneficial process, but it often persists longer than necessary, resulting in chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is frequently a cause of chronic pain. PEMFs have been found to reduce chronic, damaging inflammation. Inflammation can be initiated by many causes, and knowing the nature of the cause is important in designing therapeutic approaches.

T cells are a major regulator of the inflammatory cascade. In bacterial infections, early infiltration of the affected tissues by white blood cells is followed by the arrival of T cells, which kill bacteria. In this circumstance, eliminating of T cells can delay or stop healing. Conversely, in trauma-induced injury, T cells are less important to the healing process, and may be harmful if present for too long. In this case, elimination of T cells can minimize the unwanted effects of inflammation, accelerate healing, and reduce the risk of chronic inflammatory diseases. In chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, or tendinitis, T cells support the persistence of the disease state, and removing them would be favorable.

Research shows us that PEMFs can induce the appropriate death of aged, chronic T lymphocytes, by actions on T cell membranes and key enzymes in cells. For example, PEMFs affect ion flow through specific cell membrane channels (like those for sodium, potassium, and calcium), which positively affect these enzymes.

Stress Reduction

Stress is part of being human. Normal stress, called eustress, is necessary for survival. Too much stress is very harmful to the body, and accelerates aging. Stress is responsible for at least 65% of our illnesses, so stress reduction is necessary for all of us. Stress-reducing activities performed only now and then will allow too much stress-related damage to accumulate over time. Therefore, stress reduction must be a daily activity. Magnetic fields have many stress-reducing effects. Daily use of PEMFs help to wash away the negative effect natural stresses have on our bodies.

Bone Healing

Magnetic fields pass through the body – even the bones – as if the body wasn’t even there. PEMFs work to repair bones, whether they are damaged by surgery, injury, or disease, and have been found to improve bone regeneration such as occurs with osteoporosis and osteopenia, among other bone destroying conditions.

Blood Oxygenation

Just as a fire cannot burn without oxygen, our cells cannot produce heat and energy without oxygen. Our lungs extract oxygen from the air we breathe. It passes into our blood and is carried by arteries away from the heart and delivered to the rest of the body, including all the organs. PEMFs help with the process of extracting oxygen out of the air we breathe and help it to be transported into the circulation. The absorbed oxygen is then transported through the body to all the cells, where it is absorbed into the individual cells. In the cells, enzymes and other basic cell energy production processes use the oxygen for cell metabolism, the energy necessary to function properly. The metabolism of an organism determines which substances it will find nutritious and which it will find harmful. Proper blood-oxygen levels at the cell level (not just in the blood) allow this process to continue quickly and efficiently. After the oxygen exchange takes place, veins carry deoxygenated blood and metabolic waste products away from those same cells and back to the heart for recycling again.

The purpose of this document is to provide a basic understanding of how magnetic fields, especially PEMFs, work in the body. In addition to these basic balancing actions, magnetic fields also help with many other functions and conditions, and new ones are discovered regularly.

Some of these other actions include:

  • reducing muscle tension
  • improving tissue healing
  • reducing pain
  • increasing energy
  • improving clotting factors
  • slowing the development of arthritis
  • stimulating the immune system
  • helping the body to detoxify
  • improving the uptake of nutrients
  • reducing blood pressure
  • helping nerve function
  • helping liver function
  • balancing the acupuncture meridians
  • improving sleep
  • making soft tissue more flexible
  • reducing arthritic changes

PEMF For Preventative Care

All cells in our bodies have a life cycle – some are replaced daily, others weekly, others annually, and some only every 7 years. It is an important aspect of health maintenance that we ensure new cells are ‘born’ into a healthy tissue environment. It is equally important that old cells die, as they should. This is the cycle of life, and daily use of PEMFs can help keep the cycle running smoothly.

Taking care of problems as they arise is the key to keeping the body balanced. Neglected problems – or accumulated stress – unbalance the body quickly and tend to cascade into new problems, creating a downward spiral of worsening health.

Problems in the body have degrees of involvement and different tissues are involved in different injuries. To this point, there are what we consider to be “layers” or levels of disease: the energetic level, physiologic level, pathophysiologic level, and pathologic level. The level at which a disease or injury is present will determine how much regeneration or healing can take place unassisted.

Problems in the energetic level can be fixed quickly and require little extra cellular energy. Physiologic-level problems may take several days to improve. Once there is some level of pathology (such as in the pathophysiologic level, like most chronic issues) the healing process takes much longer to become noticeable—and may never be able to heal on its own. Pathologic level problems are not capable of being resolved without swift and dramatic intervention.

The many intra- and inter-cellular processes and activity stimulated by PEMF therapy lead to faster cellular and tissue regeneration.

The body heals itself in many ways – either somewhat rapidly in response to a disease, a wound, or loss of tissue, or slowly over time, as part of normal functioning. Regeneration refers to the regrowth of lost tissues, and happens in response to injury or disease. Wound healing refers to the closing up of an acute injury with scar tissue. While we know the skin readily regenerates or heals, other tissues have long been thought to have no regenerative capabilities. But as research and time progresses, we are learning more and more that most all cell types can be stimulated to repair, regenerate, and heal themselves.

Regeneration and wound healing require a great deal of cellular communication and adaptation to take place. In the case of eyes, for example, cells expand and eat up old matter daily. Bones are “new” every seven to ten years. Non-injured skin is completely replaced every two weeks or so. Cell turnover slows as we age, but never stops completely, continuing until death.

Basic regeneration (that which does not happen as a result of injury) is part of normal cell function. Cells are always dividing, growing, and eating up their older or injured neighbors (this is called autophagy). This does not require any outside stimulation, although such stimulation can enhance and ease the process. Injury-induced regeneration and wound healing require significantly more energy and adaptation.

Whether or not it is as a response to injury, the process of cell regeneration is the same: a cell’s contents must be copied. DNA is made up of two strands, each able to serve as a template for a new strand. DNA synthesis or replication requires existing proteins to split and reassemble. RNA messengers help with the transfer of genetic information from the existing cell to the nucleus of the newly formed cell. This process requires electrical energy.

Since magnetic fields interact with and increase natural electrical charges, PEMF therapy can assist with this information transfer. These benefits of PEMF therapy are frequently seen with wound healing and often with tissue regeneration.

Besides injury, one of the biggest threats to overall health and wellness is stress, and life is loaded with it. Our reactions to stressors are either healthy (adaptive), or unhealthy (maladaptive). For example, when your body temperature rises, you sweat. This is a healthy response to a stressor. Over time, however, stress is like water wearing down rock—it has cumulative effects. If you continue to sweat without replenishing your fluids, the sweating, which was originally a healthy response, causes you to become dehydrated, an unhealthy occurrence.

Our bodies respond to stress in many ways. When a stressor presents itself (whether it be an angry client on the phone, a packed schedule, or bad traffic), our bodies produce a low-level “fight or flight” response. This response causes the brain to release chemicals that stimulate the nervous system. Adrenalin is pumped into the bloodstream along with extra sugar and fat to fuel muscles. Mental activity is focused; some organs slow their activity while others are accelerated—muscles tense up, breathing rate increases, there may be tightness in the chest or queasiness in the stomach. These reactions are present in varying degrees depending on the stressor.

The cumulative or chronic occurrence of even mild stressors may not allow adequate or full recovery from these responses, and result in very real and increasingly widespread health problems. Stress reactions hasten the decline of our overall health by actually damaging some organs and accelerating the wear and tear on others. Stress accelerates the aging process, and can cause heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, fatigue, immune problems, anxiety and depression, and many other problems. Whenever there is muscular tension, as is often caused by stress, the blood supply to the tissues involved is diminished. If allowed to linger within the body, these tensions can cause fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. It is likely that stress is responsible for close to 70% of the problems seen by today’s doctors.

Research has shown that daily use of PEMF therapies alter stress responses by acting directly on the nervous system, glands, cells, tissues, and organs. By acting on the hypothalamus and increasing urine excretion of adrenaline, PEMFs have been shown to inhibit activation of the sympathetic nervous system and adrenal glands, while preventing a decrease in the body’s ability to resist stress. With continued use of magnetic therapies, the excitability of the nervous system also decreases, and emotional reactions accompanying stress are corrected. Long-term use of PEMFs may be able to help the body remodel tissues that tend to be hyper-reactive to chronic or acute stress, so that over time they will become less and less reactive.

Stress also causes a very quick and significant decrease in white blood cell counts, creating a sudden state of immune vulnerability, such as may be caused by lack of sleep or travel. PEMFs increase host resistance by enhancing some immune functions.

Stress reactions are immediate but recovery takes hours, and sometimes days. Since the effects of stress are cumulative, a daily routine of reducing the physiologic response becomes necessary to ward off long-term damage. We all have a need to neutralize the effects of daily stress before they become noticeable as disease.

In addition to stress, the natural aging process also affects our overall health. Cellular turnover slows as we age. Eventually, cell division happens more slowly and less efficiently until cells are dying faster than they are replicating. Breaks in the body’s electrical system, as happens with aging, cause problems with cell communication and cell metabolism. With magnetic field therapy, the breaks are repaired, and with daily use, maintained. PEMFs actually promote the body’s production of its own ATP (which fuels cellular energy), activating the cellular antioxidant defenses across the whole body.

Additionally, magnetic field therapy helps to restore neuron-transmitters, cellular communication, and brain function. It increases blood oxygen levels and circulation. With continued use, PEMFs can begin to balance blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. Because magnetic fields decrease pain and inflammation, diseases like arthritis are better controlled. As cellular energy increases, immune system functions are boosted.

Health maintenance with magnetic therapies is made much easier with regular use. Daily use doesn’t require us to play catch-up. Imbalances can be rebalanced before we even become aware of them. Nature has a tendency to kick us while we’re down. PEMFs can help prevent us from going down in the first place.

The History of PEMF

The first scientific discovery of the healing and therapeutic values of electro-magnetic pulse has an interesting back-story.  It begins when the telegraph copper cable was being laid in the ocean between London to NY. When there was a break in the cable, the technicians had to determine exactly where the break was. After all, they couldn’t just send a diver down into the depths of the ocean with a flashlight. Instead, they sent a high voltage pulse of electricity. Wherever the electric charge hit a break in the cable, it would jump and create a spark gap which made a noise. Acoustical equipment on a ship near-by could hear the sound. They were then able to send a diver down to the exact spot where the noise was coming from. Technicians on land would then shut off the electricity, and the diver would fix the break in the cable. But the men on land feeding the pulse through the cable with the high voltage machine noticed an interesting phenomenon: various pains that they had been suffering from disappeared.   So what’s the story and history of PEMF?

Cleopatra was probably the first royal celebrity to use magnets. Stories say that she slept with a Lodestone (magnetic stone) to keep her skin youthful.  The therapeutic knowledge was passed to the Greeks who have been using magnets for healing since 2500 BC.  Aristotle and Plato also referred to the benefits of Lodestones in their work.  In the East, magnet therapy has a long history in traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean folk medicine.  Reliable documentation tells us that Chinese doctors believed in the therapeutic value of magnets at least 2,000-3,000 years ago.  Five hundred years ago, Paracelsus, a Swiss physician and alchemist, wondered if diseases could be manipulated by magnets, using lodestone as the best magnets available then.  But natural lodestone are quite weak and few people paid much attention to his ideas until the discovery of carbon steel magnets in the 1770s.  During the 1800s, most of the discoveries relating electricity to magnetism were made by the early pioneers of modern physics: Gauss, Weber, Faraday and Maxwell.  In 1898, Nikola Tesla published and delivered a paper at the 8th annual meeting of the American Electro-Therapeutic Association in Buffalo, NY.  Tesla stated that one of the early observed and remarkable features of pulsed magnetism was its apparent harmlessness, which made it possible to pass relatively great amounts of electrical energy through the body of a person.  This unique property of the human body indicates an inherent adaptation and perhaps innate compatibility toward the presence  of high voltage electric fields, probably due to high trans-membrane potential already present in cellular tissue.

On April 12, 1961, Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, became the first man in space.  Yet, for his one hour and 48 minutes of making a single cycle around the earth, the man paid a heavy price.  He came back to earth in near-critical condition, in spite of having had sufficient water, food and oxygen. He had severe bone loss, muscle degeneration, decreased metabolism, loss of perception/disorientation, and debilitating depression.  The question of what caused Gagarin’s physical debilitation had to be answered before another flight was scheduled. Within short order, the puzzle was solved.  It was Gagarin’s separation from the natural pulsed magnetic energy of the earth that was the problem. Since that initial flight, all space-suits and space-stations have been equipped with pulsed magnetic devices. Science has documented that all living cells need exposure to pulsed magnetic fields; without this exposure, for even short periods of time, the effects on the body are the same as what Gagarin experienced.  Within hours of non-exposure to the pulsating magnetic field of earth, cells die.

Since the 1970s, pulsed electro-mgnetic field (PEMF) therapy is used to stimulate bone repair in non-union and other fractures, and it is approved by the FDA.  Powerful electro-magnets are also used in brain and muscle research to generate currents strong enough to fire nerves that trigger sensations and flex muscles.  Today, thousands of studies around the world are showing its benefits in healing soft-tissue sounds: suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increase range of motion.  PEMF is now being investigated experimentally for osteoarthritis, stress incontinence, migraines, and many other conditions.

CORONAVIRUS – PEMF | PEMF8000, and Corvid-19

CORONAVIRUS – PEMF | PEMF8000, and Corvid-19covid19 pemf
See below for some useful information regarding Coronavirus.
    From a member of the Stanford hospital board.
    This is their feedback for now on Coronavirus:
The new Coronavirus may not show signs of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have a fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it’s too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.
Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases:
Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don’t drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That’s very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends. Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon.
    UNDERSTANDING THE CORONAVIRUS AND WHAT TO DO:
If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
Can’t emphasis enough – drink plenty of water!
    THE SYMPTOMS
It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.
At the moment, the illness commonly called the corona virus is a matter of worldwide importance. On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of this respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus a “public health emergency of international concern.” (PHEIC). https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/summary.html.
As of Mar 11, 2020, there have been 121,230 confirmed cases globally, 4,378 deaths and 120 countries with cases. https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/685d0ace521648f8a5beeeee1b9125cd.
There is global concern that this virus could conceivably end up causing a pandemic like the Spanish flu. To put that into perspective, the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide—about one-third of the planet’s population—and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims, including some 675,000 Americans. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html
Scientists are particularly concerned because there is no known cure for the current coronavirus, and the course of an acute infection with this virus is unpredictable. The epidemic has already had significant impacts on the economy and travel and put a strain on healthcare and public health services.
Suffice it to say, then, the “coronavirus disease 2019” (“COVID-19”) epidemic, like other similar epidemics before it, requires careful attention. Both as individuals and collectively, we should consider taking various strong preventive measures including routinely recommended public health measures and probably more aggressive actions as well.
That said, it’s important to maintain a sense of perspective. So far at least, more people die per year from influenza viruses, which are by far more common, than from COVID-19.
The cause of death from “coronavirus disease 2019,” is usually due to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). ARDS can also be induced by other viruses including influenza and respiratory viruses that cause viral pneumonia, either community-acquired or from Herpes viruses.
Pandemic viruses head the list of respiratory viruses that can affect the lung and cause ARDS, with influenza viruses H5N1 and H1N1 2009 being the most recently identified. Other viruses, however, can also cause severe ARDS. Notably, another novel coronavirus was responsible for the severe ARDS outbreak in 2003. Still, apart from these pandemic viruses, the vast majority of respiratory viruses rarely cause viral pneumonia and ARDS.
So, what can be done about respiratory virus infections and ARDS? Below, I will discuss two measures most other sources of recommendations will not. Both may be helpful not only to prevent but also to treat those infected.

But first, some background.

CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019

This coronavirus, first detected in China, has now been detected in 60 locations internationally including the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
Source and Spread of the Virus
Common human coronaviruses, including types 229E, NL63, OC43, and HKU1, usually cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illnesses like the common cold. Most people get infected with one or more of these viruses at some point in their lives. Human coronaviruses can sometimes cause lower-respiratory tract illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis. This is more common in people with cardiopulmonary disease, people with weakened immune systems, infants, and older adults.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people. This was the case with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with this new virus (named SARS-CoV-2).
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus like MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. All three of these viruses have their origins in bats. The sequences from U.S. patients are similar to the one that China initially posted, suggesting a likely single, recent emergence of this virus from an animal reservoir.
Early on, many of those infected at the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, China had some link to a large seafood and live animal market. This suggests animal-to-person spread. Later, a growing number of patients reportedly did not have exposure to animal markets. This indicates person-to-person spread. Person-to-person spread was subsequently reported outside China, including in the United States.
Doctors believe person-to-spread occurs between individuals who are within six feet of one another. The ill person sneezes or coughs, and respiratory droplets reach the other person’s mouth or nose or are inhaled. Person-to-person is likely the means by which the current coronavirus illness is most commonly spread.
Some scientists also speculate that a person can catch the virus by touching a surface or object on which it is present and then touching his or her mouth, nose, or possibly even the eyes.
Additionally, some international destinations now have apparent community spread of the COVID-19 virus. This means some people have been infected who are not sure how or where they became infected.
Risk factors for severe illness include older people and individuals with chronic medical conditions including diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease.
Clinical picture
Both MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV have been known to cause severe illness in people. The complete clinical picture with regard to COVID-19 is not fully understood, but reported illnesses have ranged from mild to severe, including illness resulting in death.
The incubation period is estimated at ~5 days (range, 4-7 days). Data from human infection with other coronaviruses (e.g. MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV) suggest the incubation may range from 2-14 days. Frequently reported signs and symptoms include fever (83–98%), cough (46%–82%), muscle aches or fatigue (11–44%), and shortness of breath (31%) at illness onset. Other symptoms may include sore throat, sputum, headache, spitting up blood, and diarrhea. Fever may be prolonged and intermittent. Asymptomatic infection has been observed even with chest CT scan abnormalities.
The potential for clinical deterioration is more likely during the second week of illness. Among patients with confirmed COVID-19 and pneumonia, just over half developed shortness of breath about 8 days after illness onset (range: 5–13 days). In one report, the average time from illness onset to hospital admission with pneumonia was 9 days, results likely reflecting underlying general health, immune vitality and other health conditions.
In more severe cases, ARDS developed in 17–29% of those hospitalized, secondary bacterial infection developed in 10%, and median time from symptom onset to ARDS was 8 days. 23–32% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 and pneumonia required intensive care for respiratory support. Other reported complications include acute cardiac injury, arrhythmia, shock, and acute kidney injury. Among those hospitalized with pneumonia, the case fatality proportion has been reported as 4–15%. Because this mortality rate is only for those hospitalized, it is higher than would be true in the community. Chest CT images have shown bilateral involvement in most patients.
SARS-CoV-2 RNA has been detected in blood and stool specimens, but whether it is infectious from these sources is unknown. It is possible that viral RNA could be detected for weeks, which has occurred in some cases of MERS-CoV or SARS-CoV infection. Viable SARS-CoV virus has been found in respiratory, blood, urine, and stool specimens. Viable MERS-CoV, however, has only been isolated from respiratory tract specimens. It is unknown yet whether COVID-19 would have any of these properties.
Cytokine storm
covid19 pemf help
From Tisoncik
A recent article in The Lancet, “Clinical features of patients infected with 2019 novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China” notes there are high levels of circulating inflammatory cytokines, a so-called “cytokine storm,” in more severe infections with COVID-19.
Cytokine release syndrome (CRS), is a systemic inflammatory response syndrome as a complication of infections. When severe it has been called cytokine storm. CRS occurs when large numbers of white blood cells are activated and release inflammatory cytokines, which in turn activate yet more white blood cells (WBCs). These WBCs are activated by infected cells that die.
This cytokine release occurs when the immune system is fighting invading organisms. Cytokines signal WBCs to travel to the site of infection. In addition, cytokines activate those cells, stimulating them to produce even more cytokines, and so on, and so on, hence a “storm” develops.
This “cytokine storm” can trigger a viral sepsis in coronavirus infection, where viral replication and excessive, uncontrolled systemic inflammation can lead to pneumonia, ARDS, respiratory failure, shock, organ failure, secondary bacterial pneumonia, and potentially death. This same scenario connecting cytokine storm and severity of illness was observed before in both SARS and MERS patients.
Thus a rapidly spiraling infection with COVID-19 can lead to cytokine storm and hence a rapidly changing downward health spiral. Preventing cytokine storm is an important component of a strategy to control the more severe possibilities involved with COVID-19 infection.
Since ARDS can result from other respiratory viruses, the same concerns about cytokine storm apply to them as well.
Treatment and prevention of COVID-19 infections
At this time, there is no vaccine to protect against COVID-19 and no medications are approved to treat it. The CDC says ”non-pharmaceutical interventions would be the most important response strategy.”
This means the CDC recommends you avoid touching your face if you can remember not to and wash your hands frequently and thoroughly before eating, after using the bathroom, after you cough, sneeze, or blow your nose, and whenever you notice your hands are dirty. You should wash for at least 20 seconds using soap and water when available and an alcohol-based disinfectant that’s at least 60% alcohol if they’re not.
If you cough or sneeze, cover the cough or sneeze with a tissue and then toss the tissue in the trash. Avoid close contact with those who are sick, and if you’re the one who’s sick, stay home.
To guard against possible infection from surfaces or objects on which the virus is present, disinfect them. Switch wipes often, and wipe in one direction. If you go in both directions, you can remove contamination only to lay it right back down on the surface again. Remember to leave surfaces wet for long enough to kill viruses, The label on the container will often tell you how long that is.
These common-sense recommendations have a certain value, but clearly, in light of this rapidly expanding coronavirus epidemic, new approaches to dealing with this infection are needed urgently. The purpose of this blog is to recommend two options for helping with COVID-19 prevention and treatment. These include the use of vitamin D3 and the use of PEMFs.
Vitamin C
There are reports of intravenous (IV) vitamin C being used in China to treat COVID-19.  There are also apparently several studies in looking into the use of vitamin C for this purpose. https://www.globalresearch.ca/three-intravenous-vitamin-c-research-studies-approved-treating-covid-19/5705405
The primary limiting factors in doing IV vitamin C is to find a source and the cost. There are many holistic, integrative, alternative medical doctors around the US who provide this service.
A significant media disinformation campaign is being mounted to discredit this possible option.
While it’s possible that vitamin C taken orally may help with maintaining antioxidant status of the body, is not known whether it can help with treating or preventing COVID-19. The main limiting factor in using vitamin C is gastrointestinal tolerance. Dr. Thomas Levy has written a book about the viral killing properties of vitamin C. (Levy)
Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 has been found to have immune modulation and antiviral properties. (Zdrenghea, Beard)
In vitro studies show that vitamin D has immunomodulatory functions including inhibiting cell proliferation, inducing cell differentiation and apoptosis in normal human cell types (normal human bronchial epithelial cells and monocyte‐derived macrophages), and decreasing proinflammatory cytokine production. In addition, vitamin D increases antiviral protein production, suggesting an important role in antiviral protection. These functions are discussed in turn below.
Vitamin D decreases pro-inflammatory cytokines in the lung. It also facilitates intracellular adaptive immunity by decreasing pro-inflammatory cytokines and increasing anti-inflammatory cytokines and regulatory WBCs. In a study, 4000 IU per day of D3 for 2 months, as compared to 400 IU per day, significantly reduced activation. (Konijeti)
Human airway cells have vitamin D receptors. These airway cells can produce increased antimicrobial peptides. These peptides have been found to have antiviral activity with Influenza A and RSV. The mechanism is destabilizing the viral envelope.
At this point, there is no proof that vitamin D lowers viral load. Still, vitamin D may be significantly helpful in preventing infection by stabilizing the immune system and the health of the respiratory cells. It may also be useful in helping to fight an ongoing infection.
Studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency increases susceptibility to acute viral respiratory infections, especially those caused by enveloped viruses like the coronavirus. Levels of Vitamin D deficiency are more common during the winter, when respiratory virus infections are more common. A number of studies have shown that respiratory infections correlated with vitamin D deficiencies are more common in both healthy individuals and those with respiratory disorders, such as asthma.
Children with asthma who received vitamin D3 supplementation were less likely to develop upper respiratory infections. (Zdrenghea) Vitamin D replacement as adjunctive therapy may accelerate inflammation resolution in hospitalized COPD patients. (Dastan)
The recommended form of D for supplementation is vitamin D3 [cholecalciferol]. Vitamin D3 has been shown to be 87% more potent in raising and maintaining serum 25 (OH)D concentrations and to produce up to 3‐fold greater storage of vitamin D as compared with vitamin D2. Also and importantly, vitamin D3’s protective effect against respiratory infections relies on daily dosing. For example, 250,000 IU of D3 given once was found to significantly affect D3 levels after 5 days, but after 90 days this effect was lost.
Results of studies for the use of vitamin D to prevent airway infections are inconsistent. This is the result of research protocols that vary significantly as to the type of D used, whether it was taken daily or intermittently, and types of test subject/patient groups with differing health conditions.
The safety profile of vitamin D supplementation is similar for doses of 400, 4000 and 10000 IU/day. (Billington) Even in vulnerable children, higher doses appear to be safe. (Dougherty) Vitamin D3 35,000 IU/day given over 6 months was found safe. (Finamor)
Because the use of vitamin D 3 supplementation even at high doses has not been found to cause significant risk and may be helpful in preventing and treating respiratory infections and improving immune function, the use of higher doses of vitamin D to protect against coronavirus infections appears to be safe and reasonable.
As a result, I am recommending a daily dose of 10,000 IU of vitamin D3. I’ve been taking this level myself for several years with no significant health issues.

USE OF PEMFS TO TREAT INFECTIONS

This topic is covered in more depth in my book Power Tools for Health: how pulsed magnetic fields (PEMFs) help you. Therefore I will only provide a summary of the value of PEMFs in dealing with infections here and only deal with viral infections. Please note that there is no research evidence to support the use of PEMFs specifically to help with coronavirus infections at this time.
Still, that being said, since PEMFs provide some benefits in the management of other types of infections, it is worth considering the use of PEMFs to help with not only dealing with viruses specifically but also with keeping tissues healthier to decrease the likelihood of infection and help recovery from current infections. Through much of the book and on the website drpawluk.com, we cover the many different aspects of PEMFs and how they help to support the body.
Inadequate approaches to dealing with infections focus too often on simply dealing with the infectious agents themselves by employing mostly antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, etc. Both consumers and members of the medical community may rely exclusively on such methods, but they do not constitute a complete solution. We should certainly get rid of the infectious agents themselves, but we should also improve overall health of the body to fight the infection and repair tissue damaged by the infection. The sooner and the more aggressively we act to support the body and regenerate and heal damaged tissue, the sooner the patient will recover to regain full health. This is especially important in dealing with infections in the lungs.
A PEMF applied to herpes virus-infected cells did not affect the growth and viability of the cells. However, the viruses developing under PEMF exposure had mainly defective viral particles. This weakness would therefore give the PEMF an opportunity to heal the tissue while potentially rendering the virus less active.
Viral infections stimulate the production of natural, nonspecific inhibitors including interferon. After infections, these can be detected in fluid, tissues and cells in vivo and in vitro.
Cellular resistance to virus injections in cultures of animal and human cells exposed to PEMFs and the production and characterization of antivirus substances induced by these exposures has been studied. PEMF exposures were uniform 60 Hz of 1 gauss. Laboratory exposure of cells to the PEMF for at least twenty-four hours induced (1) a state of significant cellular resistance to virus challenge by adenovirus type 5, herpesvirus Type 1, coxsackievirus B3, and vesicular stomatitis virus and (2) the production of substances that markedly suppress virus infections when transferred to unexposed cells. The virus suppressor substances induced by the magnetic field are importantly neither virus- nor species-specific, are not apparently interferon-like, and help control virus replication.
This becomes important in dealing with coronavirus since what we are talking about is a general adaptation response of the body to any viral invasion. Since only one Gauss was used in this study, in a lab setting, the intensity of the magnetic field becomes an essential question with regard to controlling viral invasion. To this end, it’s important to know that decreasing inflammation in the tissues in general for health maintenance is important to reducing the risk of invasion by viruses. From this perspective, this blog is illuminating in terms of dealing with inflammation and the appropriate magnetic field intensity needed to help with infection, especially when it reaches the lungs.
In various studies, PEMFs have been found to significantly decrease cytokine levels by decreasing inflammation. Clearly, it would be better to prevent cytokine storm from happening than to have to deal with it after the fact. I strongly recommend using PEMF therapies for the whole body or perhaps simply to the lungs at the onset of any kind of upper respiratory infection. PEMF therapy can be applied to the upper chest to stimulate the thymus gland, which is the source of T lymphocyte cells. These cells are important for regulating responses to infections and inflammation.
For those who already own and are using PEMFs on a regular basis, whole body units with intensities greater than 70 Gauss or higher intensity systems with body pads are both appropriate for daily use for preventive purposes. Otherwise, I recommend higher intensity whole body PEMF systems for your protection, preventing infection, and treating it as necessary. Very low intensity whole body systems (which are not carried on drpawluk.com) or systems of less than 70 Gauss cannot be expected to provide enough protection or benefit.
PEMF therapies work best when bodies are properly supported with adequate lifestyle approaches such as proper rest, healthy nutrition, the use of supplements, stress reduction, healthy mental and spiritual attitudes, proper activity and/or exercise, etc. The possible use supplements is too complex a subject to deal with fully here, but we should note that at the very least they increase antioxidant support, boost the immune system, support sleep, and provide natural anti-infectives.

SUMMARY

The “coronavirus disease 2019” (“COVID-19”) epidemic, like other similar epidemics before it, requires careful attention and consideration of various preventive measures including routinely recommended public health measures and other more aggressive measures. Similar measures can be reasonably applied for other types of respiratory viral infections commonly seen in the winter. Such measures should be strongly considered especially for those most vulnerable. These aggressive measures include starting or increasing the daily intake of vitamin D3 at the level of at least 10,000 IU per day and initiating or continuing higher intensity PEMF therapies daily to the whole body and/or to the lungs. This therapy can be administered at home.
