PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. It is a unique type of medical treatment that uses highly concentrated and precise electromagnetic therapy, targeting the tissues of the body. This type of therapy brings numerous health benefits to the body. As a result, it has a wide range of applications, from eye and vision problems to blood flow/circulation to even thyroid disorders.


By going directly to the source of almost any disease or condition (the blood) and working to correct any problems it has in repairing and regenerating existing cells, the only limit to its potential medical applications is the time and effort it takes to first conduct the proper research and testing. With growing interest and demand for PEMF therapy across the medical spectrum, it may not be long before this type of treatment becomes standard.




Thyroid disease is a condition in which the thyroid gland, for one reason or another, does not function properly. It can be extremely difficult to maintain proper balance once this takes place. The result is, the thyroid gland no longer produces the right amount of hormones and chemicals needed to keep your body's systems working correctly.


The thyroid gland secretes a chemical known as thyroxine. When this chemical passes through the liver and kidneys, it is converted into an active hormone. 

Its sole purpose is to stimulate and increase metabolism, which incidentally increases oxygen consumption. When tissues and blood cells do not have proper oxygen levels, it can lead to serious health problems and diseases. In the case of thyroid disorders in particular, there are two main types, each ranging from mild to severe:




In this condition, the thyroid gland produces too little thyroid hormone. Some of the most common symptoms and side effects include: 


Whole Body Symptoms - sluggishness, lack of energy, fatigue and/or cold feeling 


Developmental symptoms - delayed growth and even delayed puberty 

Hair symptoms - dry hair and/or loss 

Other common symptoms - constipation, dry skin, brittle nails, high cholesterol, enlarged thyroid, irritability, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, slow heartbeat, or irregular menstruation.


This thyroid disorder produces the opposite effect as hypothyroidism. In this condition, the gland produces too much of the necessary hormones required for the functioning of the body's various systems. The goal of treatment here is to reduce this production or reduce the reactions of the body's organs to the excess hormone. 
Some symptoms associated with this form of thyroid problem are:

Whole Body Symptoms - excessive sweating, excessive hunger, heat intolerance and/or fatigue.
Behavioral symptoms - irritability, hyperactivity and/or restlessness. 
Heart symptoms - rapid heartbeat, abnormal heart rhythm and/or palpitations. 
Mood symptoms - mood swings, nervousness, anxiety and/or panic attack .
Eye symptoms - abnormal protrusion or puffiness of the eyes. 
Menstrual symptoms - short and light menstrual cycles or irregular periods. 
Sleep symptoms - insomnia, Sleep anxiety (psychophysiological insomnia) or otherwise difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep. 
Other common symptoms - diarrhea, weight loss, muscle weakness, hair loss, tremors (involuntary, rhythmic, twitching movements),
or warm skin One or more of these may indicate that your thyroid is out of balance and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Here are some interesting statistics related to thyroid function:
This is an incredibly large number and one worth mentioning. The main reason for this is due to the lack of nutrition in our food. Our natural vitamin and mineral quality is so low that we cannot get what we need from the ground. Supplementing the diet with a modest amount of iodized salt is the safest way to increase iodine in our diet. Many people avoid salt for health reasons, but this popular tactic results in too little salt in many people's diets. So, adding a modest amount of iodized salt in the diet is an easy way to deal with iodine deficiency in the diet.
Spontaneous hypothyroidism is between 1 and 2%, and it is more common in older women and ten times more common in women than in men. 
Hyperthyroidism in women ranges from 0.5 to 2% and is ten times more common in women than in men. THERE IS MUCH EVIDENCE THAT PEOPLE WITH THYROID DISEASE RESPOND TO PEMF 
A clear statistic that deserves attention is the fact that many people suffering from thyroid disorders have found an effective and beneficial form of treatment in PEMF therapy. This is true for both types of disorders - hypo and hyper. These cells and tissues, like all others, tend to respond very well to electromagnetic stimulation. This treatment can also be effective in reducing the severity of thyroid disease symptoms. In particular, these include slowing hair loss, increased energy levels and clearing up common skin conditions associated with them.
There are many possible causes of thyroid disorders, all of which may be responsible for your particular condition. Both types of thyroid disorders have their own root sources. 

This is an autoimmune disease in which the body's 
attacks and destroys thyroid tissue, causing the thyroid gland to produce less thyroid hormone over time. 
Certain types of medications, as well as contrast dyes, can expose your system to too much iodine, or even taking too much iodine as a supplement.

This is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland 
overstimulates and causes overproduction of thyroid hormones. 
This may be a surgically removed thyroid or a chemically destroyed thyroid. 
It is possible that this drug can also cause hypothyroidism.
This condition causes inflammation of the thyroid gland, causing excess hormones. 
This refers to the development of nodules in the thyroid gland that produce too much hormone. 
Although rare, it can still cause hyperthyroidism. In the more severe forms, hyperthyroidism can cause thyreotoxicosis or thyroid storm, both emergencies, which can be fatal. In these situations, management of conditions must be much more aggressive and urgent.
When the thyroid gland is out of balance and does not produce the right level of hormones, a variety of health problems can occur. As the condition progresses, growths begin to form in the thyroid gland itself. 
These growths are called thyroid nodules. 
Here are a few facts about nodules and what they might do: 
- Thyroid nodules may or may not be cancerous. Thyroid cancer is rare, but present in about 5-15% of nodules. 
- In cases where there are multiple nodules, this is called multi-nodular goiter. When excess hormone is produced, this is called toxic multi-nodular goiter. 
- These nodules are formed by inactive colloid. Colloid contains what is called thyroglobulin, a "prohormone."
In understanding the key ingredient for healthy cell function, ATP must be considered. Adenosine triphosphate ensures that every cell functions at every level by providing the energy that cells need
Thyroid hormone has a profound effect on mitochondria, the parts of cells responsible for producing the majority of cellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Thyroid hormone maintains the number of mitochondria in all cells of the body and thus cellular oxidative capacity. The hormone also influences ATP synthesis and turnover. When ATP levels are low, cells can become sick, damaged and diseased. Over time, they can also become severely damaged. And without the right amount of ATP in its system, the body loses its ability to regenerate and heal. 
Because the two thyroid disorders cause the exact opposite malfunction of the thyroid gland, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism require opposite treatment therapies. With regard to mild forms of hypothyroidism, the goal is to promote and stimulate the production of hormones. With hyperthyroidism, you are trying to reduce or, in some cases, stop hormone production altogether.
When it comes to hypothyroidism, the most common way to correct the lack of hormone production is to take hormone replacement therapy. These individuals usually have to take these hormone therapies for the rest of their lives. The more severe the hypothyroidism, the higher the dose of medication usually needs to be. 
With hyperthyroidism, doctors will usually rely on medication to reduce symptoms or antithyroidism, in milder situations, or surgery or treatment with radioactive iodine, in more severe situations. 
Conventional treatment regarding thyroid nodules usually involves removal of a nodule by surgery. Unfortunately, in many cases this has led to further thyroid complications. 
Because some healthy thyroid tissue must also be removed during surgery, hormone production is reduced, which can later develop into hypothyroidism.
There have been studies on humans on the effects PEMF therapy has on thyroid disorders. 
This is true for both types of the disease. Electromagnetic pulses have been shown to have significant benefits for both under- and over-reacting glands. With proper equipment, treatment regimen and supervision from a qualified physician, it may be possible to fully restore your thyroid to its proper function, especially in the milder forms. 
For systemic low thyroid problems, in particular, whole-body PEMF will target the mitochondria throughout your body. This is the part of the cell that produces ATP, which is all the important hormone that is crucial to ensure the proper function of every cell in the body. This will wake up the body and to some extent replace the function of thyroid hormones. Treatment of the gland itself will increase ATP production in the gland and improve thyroid hormone production. Once the right amount of therapy has stimulated the increased production of ATP in the thyroid gland, the gland can work efficiently again. 
It is possible that with PEMF therapy, the total dose of thyroid hormone that may be needed, especially for more severe deficiencies, can be reduced. For excessive thyroid hormone production, PEMF therapy may target and reduce the inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases in the gland, saving it from further self-destruction and excessive hormone production. However, caution is needed and the hormonal and physical function status should be carefully and closely monitored to control the symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
Medications used to control symptoms and help with excess hormone effects can also be made more effective. 
PEMF treatment with hyperthyroidism should be done with the "go low and slow" approach. That is, using lower intensities with short treatment times and very gradually, with very close blood levels and clinical monitoring, increasing intensity and time. And since we are already aware of how effective PEMFs are in controlling and reducing swelling and inflammation, this treatment may also inhibit the growth of future nodules that may interfere with thyroid functions. Ultimately, the goal of PEMF therapy for thyroid problems is to reduce the need for hormone replacement, other medications and/or destructive measures to the gland.
