Diabetes and PEMF Therapy
Diabetes is common and increasing. The major complications of diabetes are vascular and neurologic. Large vessel damage can involve the major blood vessels in the heart and extremities. Small vessel damage can involve the eyes, the kidneys, the brain and lead to peripheral neuropathy. PEMF therapy improves general health and circulation in all blood vessels including those with diabetic damage.
Diabetics can benefit from diet changes and the use of some medications, but there is now, even more hope in that they can benefit by using a whole-body PEMF therapy system. In this article, we are going to share more vital information about diabetes, how it affects the body, and how PEMF therapy can benefit those who have diabetes.
WHAT IS DIABETES?
Diabetes Mellitus (DM), more commonly known simply as diabetes, is a chronic, lifelong disease that causes high levels of sugar in the blood. It is a continually growing problem that can lead to many other health complications.
There are 3 major types of diabetes:
1) Type I Diabetes (Insulin-dependent diabetes) can occur at any age but is often diagnosed in children. Type I diabetics produce very little or no insulin. The cause is still unknown.
2) Type II Diabetes (Non-insulin dependent diabetes) is the most common. It generally occurs in adults, though younger people are being diagnosed due to increased obesity rates. The consequence of continually available food supply is that humans will tend to overeat carbohydrates over the years, which can lead to persistently high blood sugar levels. These high blood sugar levels produce persistently high insulin levels. Over time, the body stops listening to the insulin ( known as insulin resistance) and the pancreas can become depleted in producing more insulin. Insulin resistance leads to the body’s inability to reduce the high blood sugar levels. The result is Type II diabetes. Over time, Type II diabetes leads to multi-system breakdown and failure.
3) Gestational Diabetes – This type of diabetes is triggered by pregnancy.
Most people stumble across their diabetes due to symptoms that they begin experiencing, these include:
4)Slow-healing sores or frequent infections
1)Lack of interest and concentration.
2)A tingling sensation or numbness in the hands or feet (Neuropathy)
3)Eye problem – Blurred vision, Retinopathy, Cataracts, Macular degeneration)
4)Atherosclerosis – blockages in the blood vessels
6)Peripheral Arterial Disease
Diabetes impacts the overall healing of the tissues, making them more prone to infection and slow recovery. Diabetes needs to be managed for the body to stay healthy. PEMF therapy works on a cellular level to help all the tissues of the body to be healthier.
Diabetes is diagnosed based on the A1C which measures the amount of sugar in the blood.
- 70-100 mg/dl (milligrams per decilitre) or 3.9-5.5 mmol/l (Millimoles Per Litre) is the NORMAL range for blood sugar.
- 101-125 mg/dl or 5.6-7.0 mmol/l is termed PRE-DIABETIC.
- Over 125 mg/dl or 7.1 mmol/l is considered DIABETIC.
One of the primary complaints of diabetics today is Neuropathy. There are metabolic factors that play a role in how diabetic neuropathy develops, causing excruciating nerve pain in the feet, oftentimes to the point where patients would see their primary care doctor seeking guidance because they could no longer tolerate going without some type of medication. The symptoms vary from severe pain, to even tingling or numbness. The sooner a patient can begin taking control of their diet and applying whole body PEMFs, the sooner these symptoms can be prevented or reversed.
It is worth taking a few minutes to understand how the body metabolizes sugar. Sugar/ Glucose is the fuel that cells use for energy. It is metabolized by the body to produce ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) which is the energy that powers the cells of the body.
The glucose in our blood comes from two sources:
1)The food that we eat
2)The liver (which stores sugars)
In order for the cells to metabolize glucose, they need insulin. Insulin is a chemical key that unlocks the cells and allows the sugars to enter. The pancreas is the organ in the body that creates insulin. When all these components function well together the body has a healthy metabolism. If the components of this system do not operate properly the result can be diabetes.
Diabetes is the result of too much sugar or glucose in the blood.
HOW DOES PEMF THERAPY HELP PEOPLE WITH DIABETES?
Diabetes is treated with prescribed medications and insulin. Lifestyle changes, like a healthy diet, can also have an impact on diabetes. PEMF therapy supplements and enhances these existing healthcare modalities. Using PEMF therapy could help prevent progression and heal the underlying damage that is caused by diabetes. Not only do PEMF therapies help to condition all tissues to be as healthy as possible, especially as we get older, but they also accelerate the natural health recovery of diabetic tissues.
Since we can’t ever get rid of ages, all we can do is to make the tissues containing them be more healthy and resistant, and to recover and rebuild better long-term. This is exactly what PEMFs do. By changing diets and applying whole-body PEMF mat, PEMF therapy works on a cellular level to condition all the tissues of the body to be healthier.
There is a large body of research on PEMF therapy helps :
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Improve blood circulation
- Improve bone and wound healing
- Improve arthritis
- Improve liver function
- Improve pancreatic function
- Boosts immune system
- Improve cells, tissues and nerves regeneration
We encourage you to do your own research on PEMF therapy and how it has helped countless thousands with diabetes and other conditions and diseases. There are many health benefits you may experience with PEMF therapy, and you will slowly begin to see the “effects of diabetes” stop taking control of your body.
