Sleep disorders have a variety of root causes, making them difficult to diagnose. Many medications that treat sleep disorders can have unwanted side effects, especially when the medication does not address the specific type of sleep disorder. PEMF – which is short-hand for Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields – are a non-invasive, medication-free alternative that encourages and catalyzes the body’s natural healing mechanisms. When applied to the head, PEMF applicators emitting low-frequency electromagnetic fields can trigger the regeneration of brain cells and nerve cells. Slightly higher frequencies can either calm patients’ moods or lead to increased focus and alertness. FlexPulse’s applicators – which can run for up to 12 hours on a single charge – are a powerful solution for patients suffering from sleep-related disorders.
Which Sleeping Disorders Can PEMF Affect?
There are many different sleeping disorders. Many of these disorders could have a potential improvement by applying a PEMF treatment to the patient. Some of the more common sleeping disorders include:
- Insomnia, especially that caused by anxiety or stress
- Waking up multiple times per night
- Those who struggle to fall asleep in the first place
- Pain disorders that disrupt someone’s ability to sleep
- Sleep apnea (which also reduces its symptoms of snoring, choking, headaches, and the inability to concentrate)
It is also possible that due to the regenerative effects of PEMF treatment, many of the degenerative effects of sleeplessness may also be slowed or negated. PEMF can start regenerating brain cells. This means that when brain cells are lost due to sleeplessness, there is a method of correcting this problem. In the future, this could mean that those who struggle with too little sleep may have fewer long-term mental and physical health effects as a result.
The Importance of Electricity in the Human Body
The human body’s cells communicate with each other through electromagnetic exchanges. Multiple factors can disrupt these electromagnetic communications, including aging, physical injuries, poor nutrition, and excessive physical or mental stress. When the voltage of a cell falls below 15 millivolts, the cell malfunctions and emits receptors that trigger pain and inflammation. Restoring a cell to 20-25 millivolts permits the cell to operate normally. When a cell’s voltage is at 50 millivolts, it actively repairs itself, regenerating its internal components and expelling harmful toxins. PEMF therapy recharges the human body’s cells, promoting natural healing and recovery which yields multiple indirect, positive side-effects.
How PEMF Treatments Can Manage Sleeping Disorders
The brain frequencies associated with light sleep range between 4 Hz and 7.5 Hz and are classified as the theta waves. Delta waves range between 0.5 Hz and 4 Hz and are associated with deep sleep. When a patient uses a PEMF device that emits theta-wave or delta-wave electromagnetic fields, the patient assists their brain cells with recovery and regeneration. This indirectly leads to sleep sessions that have fewer disruptions and higher regeneration and healing effects.
Many PEMF devices available on the market are designed to be applied for brief periods ranging from two minutes to thirty minutes. FlexPulse’s applicators can be safely used for the battery’s entire charge – which can be up to 12 hours. This makes FlexPulse’s products ideal for patients who want to get a full night’s sleep. In addition to the high-frequency programs that promote pain relief and physical healing, FlexPulse’s low-frequency programs emit the same frequencies that the brain associates with either light sleep or deep sleep.
FlexPulse Program Specifically Designed to Promote Healthy Sleep
FlexPulse products give patients the freedom to select one of ten PEMF programs to address a variety of health issues. Two of the ten programs are specifically designed to facilitate healthy sleep patterns:
- P1 – 3 Hz: 3 Hz falls in the delta wave range. The P1 program is suitable for patients seeking a deep sleep; our devices’ 12-hour battery life means that the patient will not have to contend with interrupted sleep due to a drained battery. The P1 program is also suitable for patients who are anxious and patients struggling to sleep due to chronic pain.
- P2 – 7.8 Hz:8 Hz is considered on the high-end of the theta-wave spectrum. The P2 program promotes light sleep, where patients are more likely to encounter dreams and “dream-learning,” where patients’ brains reinforce important concepts or lessons that they previously learned while awake.
Patients whose sleep disorders stem from a depressive disorder should also consider using the P10 program, which generates a 1KHz electromagnetic field. Recent studies indicate that applying a 1KHz electromagnetic field to the head daily can manage the effects of acute depression.
FlexPulse sells wearable applicators that can operate for up to 12 hours on a single charge. Our products cater to a variety of patients and their ailments due to the 10 programs offered and the ability to apply our products to virtually any body part. Our products are also highly portable, making them ideal choices for patients who travel frequently or patients with space restrictions. Please feel free to contact us by filling out our online form.
