We know that our bodies contain, and even produce, electricity. This is something that many of us learned sitting in a high school science class. Maybe you learned that this electricity is just something that results from chemical reactions: a sort of byproduct and nothing more. However, one Yale study examined how electrical fields also influence activity in brain cells.
Electricity creates a “feedback loop” in the brain
The Yale study found that the brain doesn’t just produce electrical charges, but it’s also affected by the electrical signals produced during chemical reactions in the brain. The study also found that introducing electrical fields also influences activity in the brain cells.
David McCormick, the senior author of the study, compared the interaction between the brain and electrical fields to cheering and fans in a stadium.
“It’s like asking whether the roar of the crowd in the football stadium also influences you to cheer as well. And in turn, your cheering encourages others to cheer along with you.”
This study highlights the interaction between electromagnetic energy and brain activity. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is used to treat depression and anxiety, and this study helps identify how PEMF treatments are effective for treating neurological conditions.
If electrical fields affect brain activity…
The study pointed out that many devices produce electromagnetic fields. Computers, wireless internet routers, microwaves, power lines, and many other everyday items generate EMFs and electromagnetic radiation. The study also rightly mentions the need to explore whether or not these EMFs could affect us.
The EMFs used in pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, however, are very low frequency. In fact, the WiFi signal that you use everyday and the phone you keep in your pocket or purse produce higher levels of EMF radiation than PEMF therapy devices.
PEMF therapy is completely safe for almost everyone, and it can be used on pets and animals of all different shapes and sizes. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy can be used on cattle, horses, dogs, cats, reptiles, and even small mammals like hamsters and gerbils.
Veterinarians, chiropractors, physical therapists, and horse trainers should all consider offering PEMF therapy to their clients. Contact PEMF Complete for information about adding PEMF therapy to your practice, or for PEMF devices for home and personal use.
