CALM PEMF™ is an FDA-registered handheld device that uses low hertz electromagnetic frequency to stimulate healthier cellular communication and activity. This device is designed to relieve stress and promote overall wellness with regular use.
PEMF is an acronym for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. PEMF impacts energy within a damaged cell by directing repeating electromagnetic pulses toward those damaged cells, stimulating healthier cellular communication and activity. It is a technology that enhances wellness by promoting cellular communication.
CALM PEMF™ is a portable unit that anyone can take anywhere. It supports stress reduction by modulating the Autonomic Nervous System and supports a relaxed, parasympathetic state with regular use.
CALM PEMF™ uses electric impulses that stimulate the cells to communicate more effectively. One can achieve greater physical and mental health with improved cellular communication and health.
PEMF technology has exhibited therapeutic potential for treating various diseases and issues (Mansourian and Shanei, 2021). It has already been shown that PEMF can change the cell cycle, apoptosis, cell proliferation, and differentiation. PEMF can affect and alter the cell function by inducing forced vibration for free ions on the cell membrane surfaces due to an external oscillating field (Ganesan et. al, 2009; Gansourian and Shanei, 2021).
As a result, the human body heals faster and remains in a state of wellness for longer.
Various mental health behavioral issues, chronic conditions, and autoimmune diseases can be addressed with PEMF therapy. In addition, it offers a safe and effective solution for chronic pain (Shupak, 2006; Thomas et al., 2007).
Research on PEMF for health and mental health is promising, and many studies demonstrate the efficacy of PEMF with regular use in improving cellular health and reducing inflammation, including a 20-year meta-analysis from researchers Mansourian and Shanei (2021).
The research demonstrates that PEMF may benefit individuals who suffer from various conditions and symptoms associated with stress and mental and physical health. PEMF is an easy-to-use device, and with the portability of CALM PEMF™, it is also accessible and can be used with the high frequency that research has shown to impact cellular function and health.
With stress, mental health, and autoimmune issues rising, individuals and families need non-medication options to support mental and physical wellness. CALM PEMF™ is designed to support five specific areas: attention/learning, stress/anxiety. emotional/behavioral regulation, obsessions/compulsions, and infections/toxins.
Every organ produces bio-electromagnetic fields in the body. The purpose of PEMF is to alter these energy fields to enhance cellular function. Controlled and pulsed electromagnetic frequencies can deliver health-enhancing electromagnetic fields to the cells. However, our constant daily bombardment of environmental stresses, toxins, and stressors negatively impacts the health of cells, the brain, and the body.
Pulsed low-frequency fields of energy are used in PEMF technology. PEMFs, even of the tiniest strengths, penetrate all cells, tissues, organs, and bones in the body without being absorbed or altered. As a result, electrical and chemical processes in the tissues are stimulated as they pass through.
Using PEMF therapy improves cellular health and function by enhancing cellular energy. Through regular PEMF therapy, the body can process electrical and chemical exchanges more efficiently and address imbalances or dysfunctions in those areas, resulting in improved adaptations and natural healing.
This modality primarily treats acute and chronic pain by reducing inflammation. However, modern PEMF devices, including CALM PEMF, have also harnessed the benefits of low-frequency magnetic fields to support stress and mental wellness.
PEMF therapy uses specialized magnetic devices to direct small amounts of energy to specific body parts. Increasing cell communication with these low Hz frequencies improves wellness. It also increases your body's ability to release nitric oxide, which improves circulation and cellular function.
Nitric oxide aids in oxygen delivery to cells and stimulates the immune system. PEMFs increase blood flow to injured or diseased cells by triggering nitric oxide production. It makes electromagnetic therapy an effective pain management tool.
Studies have demonstrated how nitric oxide affects signaling. Nitric oxide supports inflammation reduction, microcirculation, and the initiation of various growth and repair processes inside the body. It has also been demonstrated that nitric oxide signaling plays a central role in PEMF transduction, with reports of enhanced microvascular blood perfusion. (Mayrovitz & Larsen, 1992).
PEMF is essential in supporting mental health issues as it helps calm the brain and body, reduces inflammation, and improves cellular health and communication. As an evidence-based natural technology, there is research to support PEMF technology for use with conditions such as autoimmune conditions, infections such as sepsis, post-COVID infection, fibromyalgia, pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. (Lee et al., 2022; Hattapoglu et al., 2019: van Belkum et al., 2016; Alizadeh et al., 2019; Wagner et al., 2022; Sutbeyaz, 2009; Shupak, 2006).
PEMF helps improve the quality of life for people with pain, anxiety, and depression (Hattapoğlu, 2019) and alleviates certain chronic medical conditions (Sutbeyaz, 2009). For that reason, PEMF therapy has become increasingly popular for autoimmune deficiencies and mental health conditions as it effectively promotes cellular communication while enhancing wellness and self-healing.
There are several advantages to using PEMF signals over constant stimulation, starting with sending specific amplitude and frequency patterns into the body. With PEMF, tissues can be targeted at low-duty cycles without heating them. It also becomes possible to induce the electric fields in the body by constantly transmitting a variable magnetic component (Shupak, 2003).
There is conclusive evidence that nonthermal PEMFs have various biological effects (Funk et al., 2009). It shows that nonthermal PEMFs directly affect cellular processes instead of simply warming them. It has also been demonstrated that nonthermal PEMF signals can also show resonances with specific frequencies and amplitudes related to increased or decreased sensitivity of cells or tissues.
Several double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have now been done to demonstrate that PEMFs can be used therapeutically. Additionally, many PEMF modalities were approved by the US FDA and other regulatory bodies worldwide for treating pathologies such as bone repair, chronic damage, pain, and inflammation.
Cellular communication plays a vital role in the body's adaptation and regulation processes, which directly affect the body's health. Additionally, PEMF therapy alleviates symptoms of many diseases arising from cell deterioration.
Our cells, tissues, and organ function are affected by unhealthy electromagnetic fields (EMFs). There is a bio-electromagnetic field around every organ in the body. As a result, trillions of chemical reactions per second occur inside every cell of the body, which are communicated through electromagnetic signals or fields. Organs, tissues, and subsystems must communicate continuously and precisely to effectively process the instantaneous exchanges occurring in the body. Therefore, disrupting or blocking these critical communication exchanges may result in unhealthy symptoms in the body.
Repeated use of PEMF can improve cellular health. A meta-analysis of two decades of PEMF studies (Mansourian and Shanei, 2021) found that cell changes were observed with repeated use and specific frequencies. “ With chronic exposure, more than ten days would be more effective in establishing a cellular response” (Mansourian and Shanei, 2021).
Moreover, in this same meta-analysis, the frequencies of PEMFs used in the studies showed that different frequencies correspond to different levels of cellular response (Mansourian and Shanei, 2021). For example, in animal and human studies, they examined which specific frequencies produced cell changes related to various conditions.
Anyone who has undergone in-clinic PEMF therapy would have experienced its positive outcomes in calming the nervous system and initiating a relaxed mind and body. PEMF improves anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions by improving cellular communication, promoting detoxification, and reducing inflammation. These positive effects can help reduce mental health symptoms.
Proper detoxification is important for physical and mental health. Our immune system helps the host eliminate toxic or allergenic substances that enter through mucosal surfaces and improper detoxification (Chaplin, 2010).
Inflammation has been tied to several conditions and issues. PEMF has been found even to reduce inflammation in extreme cases such as sepsis (Lee et al., 2022). PEMF has been shown to improve mental and physical issues and symptoms, including anxiety, depression (Hattapoglu et al., 2019: van Belkum et al., 2016), PTSD ( Alizadeh et al., 2019), post-viral infection (Wagner et al., 2022), fibromyalgia (Sutbeyaz, 2009) and pain (Shupak, 2006).
With the need for more non-invasive treatments for mental health, PEMF is the subject of many studies. Moreover, many patients with clinical issues such as depression are nonresponsive to treatment, necessitating more options. According to the results of an eight-week study, PEMF can be used as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy to treat treatment-resistant depression in patients (Larsen et al., 2020).
Aside from the PEMF machines and mats used in clinics, other PEMF devices are available. With today’s busy lifestyles, mobile or portable variants are increasingly popular. CALM PEMF™ is a mobile PEMF device designed for providing PEMF at home, work, or school.
If used adequately by following protocols and the best clinical practices, CALM PEMF™ supports cellular health and mental wellness. CALM PEMF™ is designed to run multiple protocols simultaneously with synergistic amplification to maximize effect and minimize usage time.
Through PEMF, the body and mind are more relaxed and prepared to continue with different therapies and programs for retraining the brain and doing behavioral therapy to change behavior. The study of psychoimmunology demonstrates that only when the ANS is calm can the body's immune system, neurotransmitters, and hormones function optimally. In addition, when the brain is regulated, one can more easily pay attention, think and take action.
Calm PEMF™ is a portable and easy-to-use frequency device. It is designed after the same PEMF scientific studies demonstrating improved cellular communication and function with repeated use.
Due to its small size and discreet design, individuals will find it very easy to use. It is so easy to use that with adult supervision, children can use it while learning, playing, or sleeping. CALM PEMF™ is a professional-grade device that is great for the brain and body. It serves to promote mental and family wellness.
CALM PEMF™ mobile device is an excellent alternative to larger devices and mats that can be cumbersome and difficult to use and restrict your time. CALM PEMF™ is portable and can be used anywhere or anytime except for times of moisture or high heat.
Parents looking for non-intrusive methods of treating mental health problems in kids and teens or for themselves will appreciate CALM PEMF™. Keeping your child's symptoms under control with PEMF devices will also help reduce their dependence on medications.
With mental health, autoimmune, and health issues increasing in adults and children, we need science-backed options to support brain, mental and physical wellness. In the United States, 8.5 percent of children under 18, or one in twelve children, are on medication for ADD/ADHD, autism, or difficulties with emotions, concentration, or behavior, according to the 2018-2019 National Survey of Children's Health. Increased medication use and behavioral and health conditions have only risen during the pandemic.
The World Health Organization states, “Globally, one in seven 10-19-year-olds experiences a mental disorder.” One in four people, or more than 24% of Americans, are now taking prescription mental health medication (CDC).
While some prescriptions may be appropriate, many psychiatric prescriptions are not, especially when patients often receive psychotropic medications without being evaluated by a mental health professional (Smith, 2012). Studies have shown that the use of psychiatric medications among college students has increased exponentially in all medication categories over the last ten years (Morris, 2021). Yet, mental health issues and suicide rates have concurrently dramatically increased at the same time.
CALM PEMF™ programs and protocols are designed to support child, individual, and family wellness without the harmful side effects of psychiatric medications.
