PEMF therapy heals / repairs bones
PEMF therapy is advocated for creating strong, healthy bones by stimulating osteoblasts to produce bone material. It does this by inducing microcurrents (similar to the small currents produced by the piezoelectric effect when exercise and weight bearing exercises put pressure on the bones), which promote the synthesis of bone cells' extracellular matrix proteins and secretion of osteoblast growth factors to stimulate new bone formation and contribute to enhanced fracture repair. PEMF therapy may enhance angiopoietin-2 expression, affect several membrane receptors and stimulate osteoblasts to secrete growth factors such as BMPs 2 and 4, TGF-Î², and FGF-2.
It is also important to balance acid-producing foods with alkaline minerals in the diet to prevent the body needing to leach alkaline minerals, such as calcium, from the bones and teeth.
Research has found that PEMF therapy can heal bone fractures that are up to 40 years old Bassett, 1995

General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
