Poor nutrition, stress, and lack of sleep can all wear on your immune system. If you can’t afford to let sickness interrupt your busy day-to-day life, it’s important to stay on the offense when it comes to immune system support.
A strong foundation
While we may be able to put a “bandaid” of many of our body’s ailments, a weak immune system simply isn’t one of them. That’s why the most important measures you can take to strengthen your body’s natural defenses are hydration, rest, nutrition, and exercise. Talk about holistic wellness!
The truth is the body has everything it needs to fight off sickness—powerful organs, blood cells, and special chemicals. But optimum performance of the immune system means every piece of the puzzle has to be putting in its best work! Immune support follows a holistic approach to wellness by giving marching orders to the body’s inner army. And teaching the body to fight for itself sounds a lot like what we do here at Pulse Centers…
PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field therapy) energizes at the cellular level without medically invasive procedures. This amplification of natural energy encourages the body to function more effectively for overall wellness. In addition to providing support to all the body’s moving pieces, PEMF also supports general relaxation,[4,5] stimulates and exercises the cells. It even assists with muscle fatigue and discomfort after exercise.
In a recent study, Pulse Centers PEMF had positive effects on mouse macrophages of the innate immune system. Further, these effects lasted 2 weeks after the final pulsing session. The study revealed that PEMF-treated macrophages down-regulated inflammatory cytokines and up-regulated an anti-inflammatory cytokine. So, in addition to providing support to the body as a whole, PEMF rounds all the bases of comprehensive immune system support.
PEMF plan of attack
1. Start with the whole body.
Always start with a full body Pulsing session! Relax for 20 minutes on either the Total Body Bed or Chair Pad.
Pro Tip: If you’re using a Pulse XL Pro, set the Pulses Per Second between 2.5 and 7.8.
2. Focus on the chest.
Next, utilize the Stacked Paddles or Square Pad to target the chest area for 30 minutes. Remember not to set the Magnetic Field Strength above your comfort level.
3. Finish low and slow.
If you’re using a Pulse XL Pro, “low and slow” is a Pulse Per Second rate of 1.0 to 2.0 and a Magnetic Field Strength of 25% or less. If you’re using a Pulse X or Pulse X1, set the dial to the point where you are feeling gentle, soothing pulses.
Always end the session applying low intensity PEMF to the whole body. For this, lay on either the Total Body Bed or the Chair Pad for 10 to 20 minutes.
