A major advantage of owning Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy in the home is that all members of the family, including those with 4 legs and tails, can share in the ability to achieve better health. I am often reminded of the surprise and wonder I felt when questioning a satisfied home user as to her husband's response to regular iMRS PEMF Therapy. "He's great!" she said, "But the dog...!" She proceeded to relate the story of how their aged dog's health had inadvertently been rejuvenated by her husband's iMRS PEMF Therapy. She explained that the dog would automatically lie between her husband's legs while he applied the whole body mat, thereby providing both with a therapeutic dose of PEMF Therapy. Miraculously, after a "couple of weeks" of regular use, their small dog had regained the previously lost ability to jump up onto the couch and climb the stairs! Not being a pet owner myself, I was both taken aback and amused by this story. I have since been entertained by many more testimonials of PEMF Therapy's rewarding health effects on pets. In fact, it is common to hear comments like - "I can't keep my cat/dog off the mat, they "are attracted to it", they "love it" or they "fall asleep on it." Some home users have even texted me photos of their pets relaxing/sleeping on the PEMF mat.
While humans and pets are genetically different species, biologically they share much in common. Humans, dogs, cats, horses, and cattle are mammals and all possess analogous organ and neuromuscular systems. This biological similarity is the reason that most knowledge of efficacious medical therapies/modalities (i.e., drugs, surgeries, PEMF, etc.), commonly applied to benefit humans has been attained through small animal research/testing. A testament to PEMF Therapy's ability to effectively promote the health and healing of pets is the fact that much of what we have learned about its ability to enhance human health was first discovered via small animal research. The placebo effect does not exist in the non-human animal world, thus adding scientific credibility and validity to PEMF's health enhancing impact on the small animals tested.
PEMF Therapy's biological effects are broad, deep seated and similarly impact all life forms (cross-species) because it works on a cellular level. This can be attributed to life being an organized collection of cells. Cellular vitality or ability to express health is energetically dependent upon the movement/flow of charged atoms (electrolytes like Na+, K+, Ca+, Mg+, etc.) and polar molecules (amino acids, H2O, etc.) within the cell, along with their exchange into and out of the cells. The science of biophysics has proven that nature/earth-based PEMF works to improve cellular health through inducing this cellular resonance. The wellness effects of PEMF Therapy are therefore common to all living cells, whether animal (fauna) or vegetable (flora).
The scientifically established health benefits of PEMF Therapy commonly produced in all animals are: 1) Reduces Pain & Inflammation, 2) Accelerates Healing, 3) Improves Energy (ATP) Production, 4) Improves Sleep, 5) Improves Circulation, 6) Improves Immunity, 7) Increases Cellular Regeneration, 8) Increases Cellular Detoxification... Upon investigation, it turns out that PEMF Therapy has a long standing history of use in veterinary medicine and is prevalently used for horses (i.e., iMRS Fauna) and small animals (pets) as a drugless alternative to speed healing and relieve arthritic pain.The fundamental bioelectric nature of pets and humans is the common thread that binds their biology and is responsible for PEMF Therapy's ability to improve the health of both. Other than walking or jogging together, I can't think of another shared activity which can have such profound health benefits for both human and pet alike.
