Is Your Smartphone Killing You?

Have you wondered if the amount of time you spend using your computer or cell phone is having any negative effects on your health?  Technology is a constant presence in our personal and professional lives.  It helps us be more productive and more organized, but at what cost?  According to Nielsen’s Total Audience Report in the 4th quarter of 2014, the average American over the age of 18 spends more than 11 hours per day using a smartphone, computer, TV, radio or some other electronic device.  That is a staggering amount of time!

All electronic devices emit electromagnetic fields but some are stronger and more dangerous than others.  Many people who work around multiple computers or screens or who live in homes near power lines complain of common health conditions such as fatigue, insomnia, poor concentration or headaches.  There is much debate about this topic but with so much “electro-smog” present, it is virtually impossible to collect accurate data therefore we get inconclusive study results.

You may be asking yourself, “So what can we do to help balance this electro-smog we are all living in?”  There is a reason why we intuitively like to vacation away from all this technology at the beach, at the lake or in the mountains.  In nature, we find the answer.  Many people are revitalizing the concept of “grounding”.  Grounding is the act of getting back in touch with nature – actually setting your body on the ground to absorb the Earth’s own geomagnetic field.  The only problem with this concept is that it takes most of the day to recharge the cells in our body back to full strength.

This is where PEMF therapy comes in!

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy.  There are decades of research that demonstrate the benefits of PEMF.  In 1975, Dr. Adey and Dr. Bawin, discovered that the healthy, biological range of electromagnetic frequencies for humans is 3-25 Hz.  They found that brain cells react positively to only the frequencies within this range now coined, the Adey Window.  Most households use electricity at 50-60Hz and most cell phones use 800-1900MHz, which is definitely not within our biological range!  Common sense tells us that being around multiple electronics is not very healthy.

We utilize an FDA approved, state of the art PEMF unit in our office to help offset the negative drain on our body caused by cell phones, computers, fluorescent lighting, microwave ovens, and even your alarm clock!  The PEMF unit “recharges” our patients on a cellular level by using a pulsed frequency within the Adey Window or biological range.  The results have been amazing.  Patients report that they feel better, they sleep better, they heal better and they hold their chiropractic adjustments longer.  Published scientific literature states improved blood circulation, enhanced oxygenation of tissues, accelerated regeneration of sick tissues, improved immune function and healthier cell membranes which allow for better detoxification.  We have been using PEMF therapy in our office for over four years. I personally try to use it every day!

A typical PEMF session in our office usually takes 16 minutes.

You rest fully clothed while lying on a special padded mat.  The mat (often called “the Magic Mat” by our patients) emits a pulsed electromagnetic field that matches the Earth’s own geomagnetic field.  This simulated frequency helps to restore harmonic resonance to nearly all 75 trillion cells of the human body simultaneously.  Our PEMF system also has an “organ clock”.  This means that depending on the time of day you use the mat, certain frequencies are excluded, while other frequencies are delivered according to the biorhythms of the body.  Blending natural frequencies with the body’s rhythms ensures that all cells receive the most beneficial stimulation.  All of these benefits with essentially no adverse reactions.  Nature knows best!

EB Pro ion therapy

Another service we offer for energy balancing and cellular detoxification is EB Pro ion therapy.  The EB Pro session involves sitting with your feet (or hands) immersed in a warm salt water and mineral solution.  The ion therapy device charges the ions in the solution which causes your body’s energy meridians to become activated thus allowing for a change in the electrical conductivity of the body.  The cells of the body respond by increasing cell membrane permeability thus allowing for cellular detoxification and rejuvenation.  This process helps to restore the body to a proper state of equilibrium or balance.  The result for you is having more energy, thinking more clearly and having a greater sense of well-being.  Visit our website for more information.

“Energy medicine” has been used successfully in Europe and Asia for many, many decades.  The United States is in its infancy as we are only now beginning to respect and incorporate these wellness technologies into our health care paradigm.  The PEMF and ion therapy systems we use in our office are both FDA approved wellness devices.

If you would like to try a PEMF or EB session just call our office to schedule an appointment.
