Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is a safe, powerful, non-invasive therapy that influences cell behavior by inducing electrical changes to occur that stimulates cellular regeneration resulting in accelerated healing of damaged tissue, decreased inflammation, pain relief and greater range of motion with NO adverse reactions.
PEMF Therapy detoxifies the body at a cellular level. Good cell metabolism is required to produce energy and maintain cellular health. PEMF induces electrical changes within the cell that boosts cellular metabolism, regenerates blood cells, improves circulation, increases the pH, enhances stem cell production, increases cell hydration and increases the cellular level of oxygen absorption by up to 200%. If the cells are healthier, the immune system becomes stronger, the nervous system relaxes, bones, joints and vital organs become stronger…ultimately, giving the body the environment to heal and function as God intended.
Differentiation of Human Umbilical Cord-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells, WJ-MSCs, into Chondrogenic Cells in the Presence of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields
During cartilage regeneration, proliferation and differentiation of new chondrocytes are required and towards this goal, in humans electromagnetic stimulation has been used in order to increase the spontaneous regenerative capacity of bone and cartilage tissue. In vivo tissue engineering has pointed out that the absence of an abundant source of cells accelerating the healing process is a limiting factor in the ability to repair articular cartilage. Considering that the umbilical cord is a viable alternative source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), our study evaluated the possibility of a combined use of Wharton’s jelly – mesenchymal stem cells (WJ-MSCs) and pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF). The first effect observed was that compared with the untreated cells, when the WJ-MSCs were treated with PMEF, there was an increase in the division of cells and a rapid increase in cell density and the morphological and biochemical data showed that the treatment with PMEF reduced the time to obtain chondrocyte cell differentiation and deposition of extracellular matrix. Taken together these data indicate the capacity of PEMF to induce early differentiation of WJ-MSCs cells towards cartilaginous tissue.
PHYSIOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR GENETIC EFFECTS OF TIME-VARYING ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS ON HUMAN NEURONAL CELLS
The present investigation details the development of model systems for growing two- and three dimensional human neural progenitor cells within a culture medium facilitated by a time-varying electromagnetic field (TVEMF). The cells and culture medium are contained within a two- or three-dimensional culture vessel, and the electromagnetic field is emitted from an electrode or coil. These studies further provide methods to promote neural tissue regeneration by means of culturing the neural cells in either configuration.
