How Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PEMFs) Help You
Email this review


A Baltimore family physician extols the virtues of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and its positive effects on the human body in this debut book.

Writing collaboratively with freelance editor Layne, Pawluk shares his frustration with traditional medicine and, after studying acupuncture, his introduction to static magnet and electromagnetic field therapy. He researched it and, years later, applied it within his scope of practice. A holistically trained professional, Pawluk believes in treating illnesses via their root causes, and the peer-reviewed PEMF studies he presents demonstrate dramatic results in accelerating organ healing and improving basic physical functionality. He aims to garner outward support for this revolutionary therapy through the testimonies and focused information provided in this book. The guide is cohesive, tightly written, and organized into five sections collectively illuminating everything from basic introductory facts to the therapy’s effects on disease and dysfunction. The complex operating science and performance attributes behind PEMF are thoroughly explained, though perhaps using overly clinical terminology that may prove challenging for laypeople. Still, while details on modulation, wavelength cycles, frequencies, and entrainment threaten to confuse at the outset, a condensed summary page (which appears at the conclusion of each chapter) is immensely helpful and boils the information down to a more manageable nugget for neophytes. The guide expands further to include how PEMFs help the body and complement other medical interventions while stressing the benefits gained from daily use of the therapy as “primary prevention” to achieve “constant energetic healing.” Pawluk touts the scientifically proven antibacterial, regenerative, cognitive, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying properties of PEMF, and in the most expansive section, the book intricately details an incredibly copious amount of alphabetically arranged ailments that electromagnetic field therapy claims to alleviate. His study-supported claims run the gamut from benefiting addiction, arthritis, obesity, and back pain to more life-threatening conditions such as cancer and strokes. Though each claim is backed up with sound clinical evidence and details on the therapy’s mechanical functionalities, Pawluk responsibly recommends professional medical consultation before embarking on any new treatment. A closing section explains how to select and then safely and properly utilize the right PEMF system.

Readers receptive to unconventional curative approaches should find much to ponder in this referential, instructional, and supportive manual on a pioneering advance in modern medicine.
