Can PEMF Help You Lose Weight?
Some people want to lose weight in order to look good, but maintaining a healthy weight is important for a number of reasons. People at a healthy weight have a lower risk for a number of different health problems: cardiovascular disease, stroke, heart attack, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Keeping a healthy weight can also improve your mood, help you feel more confident, and allow you to maintain a positive body image. Pulsed electromagnetic provides numerous health benefits, but can PEMF help you lose weight?
Research on PEMF therapy and weight loss
The question comes up because you can easily find testimonials online claiming that PEMF caused weight loss for individuals using PEMF for general health improvement. There is no scientific research that specifically ties PEMF therapy to weight loss.
So why does it create weight loss for some people?
One reason that people struggle to manage a healthy weight is a low metabolism. Metabolic rate is the amount of energy that your body uses over time. The food that we consume provides our body with calories, and our metabolism determines how quickly we burn through those calories. People with a low metabolism burn through energy at a slower rate than those with a high metabolism.
Although cellular metabolism is not the same thing as metabolic rate, cellular metabolism does include energy production as well as cell regeneration and proper cellular function. PEMF therapy has been shown to improve cellular metabolism.
A study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that increasing the blood flow in brown fat tissues of mice triggered energy consumption and calorie burning, which could help reduce white fat tissues. The study hasn’t been replicated in humans, but the findings suggest that blood flow and circulation could play a role in fat burning and weight loss.
Many clinical studies show that PEMF therapy increases blood flow and improves circulation.
PEMF therapy keeps you at your best
We don’t know that PEMF therapy will help you lose weight directly. There haven’t been studies testing pulsed electromagnetic field therapy as a weight management technique.
However, PEMF therapy will improve your overall health and have you feeling at your best. This means you are more likely to stay active and get the exercise you need to maintain a healthy weight. You can do more when you feel better.
PEMF therapy improves your mood and your overall health.
It improves flexibility and range of motion.
PEMF therapy reduces recovery time, and increases strength and endurance.
It reduces pain, swelling, and inflammation.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy increases cellular metabolism.
It improves circulation and blood flow.
It oxygenates the cells and promotes healthy cell function.
PEMF also helps the body remove toxins and cellular waste.
There’s no magic bullet for weight loss. It requires commitment to a healthy lifestyle full of exercise and healthy eating habits.
There is a real need for research on the part PEMF therapy can play in weight loss. However, we find that PEMF therapy can help you manage your weight by ensuring that you feel your best and are able to stay active and healthy.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is the perfect compliment to an active lifestyle and it’s a safe, effective, and simple way to work towards wellness.
