Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) therapy is a treatment strategy which relies upon electromagnetic fields targeting the body at the cell level. Meanwhile, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) therapy uses a low-voltage electric current to relieve symptomatic pain by exciting sensory nerves and stimulating the pain gating mechanism. Even though PEMF devices and TENS units are closely related, they differ significantly. As the name implies, PEMF devices use electromagnetic fields created by means of a copper coil. These magnetic fields are applied to the entire body with the purpose of improving the repair and health of cells, tissues and whole body. In contrast, TENS units make use of a low-voltage electric current that stimulates the nerves. PEMF devices and TENS units also vary in their range of clinical applications. Although TENS units are exceptionally effective at handling symptomatic pain, they can't influence the recovery and healing process in any way other than pain relief. Conversely, clinicians are able to use PEMF to enhance the repair of damaged cells, stimulate healing of nerves, decrease inflammation, and also improve the function of our cells. Patient’s suffering from non-union of fractures may also use a PEMF device to alleviate pain and accelerate the recovery process, whereas a TENS unit will only have the ability to lessen the pain. Since a PEMF treatment relies upon electromagnetic fields, they do not require direct contact with skin. PEMF therapy can be applied while wearing light clothes, which makes them a more suitable alternative. PEMF devices can also target a larger area of the body at once in comparison to the coverage capacity of TENS electrodes which need to be removed from one area of the body to another. The Takeaway Although many individuals believe PEMF devices and TENS units to be in similar, they utilize very different mechanisms of action to accomplish their therapeutic outcomes and differ considerably in their application. TENS units are primarily useful in pain management, while PEMF devices can facilitate healing while relieving pain.

Over the years, pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy has become an incredibly versatile technology, providing a wide range of benefits to both animals and humans. Today, it’s used to improve circulation and physical fitness, relieve minor pain, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, to treat migraines and even heal certain types of fractures. But how – and when – was this revolutionary science developed? And who developed it? Below, we’ll be going back in time to explore the history of PEMF technology and how it got to where it is today. But the beginning of our story starts way earlier than you might think… PEMF Therapy’s Ancient Ancestor Although they’ve since been proven ineffective, magnets have been used as medical devices for over two thousand years. Ancient physicians used magnetic therapy in hopes of curing everything from minor joint pain to moodiness to digestive issues. While their hunch about the effectiveness of magnetic fields wasn’t completely off, it would take some time for their idea to take shape. Over 1700 years, to be exact. Special Thanks to Tesla & Einstein Believe it or not, Nikola Tesla was one of the pioneers of electrotherapy, the medical use of electrical energy. His discovery that electrical current could be passed through the human body without causing any harm paved the way for PEMF therapy as we know it today. In fact, he used his famous tesla coils in early experiments in electrotherapy. Following the discovery of the electron at the dawn of the 20th century, Einstein proposed that electricity and magnetism aren’t entirely separate in nature. His research suggested that they were, in fact, two sides of the same coin. But despite these breakthroughs, scientists wouldn’t heavily research the use of electromagnetic fields until the 1950s. Studied Worldwide After World War II, countries around the world began pouring their resources into the research and development of the first PEMF devices. Early versions of these systems looked like rudimentary prototypes of CAT scan machines. By the early 1970s, horses became the first beneficiaries of PEMF therapy. Veterinarians in the United States used this emerging technology to heal leg fractures in racehorses successfully. By 1982, scientists had conducted enough research to fill the first book on PEMF therapy, published in Bulgaria. From there, researchers developed human applications to heal non-union fractures, or fractures that fail to heal correctly. Until then, treatment for non-union fractures was invasive and involved implanting electrodes on either side of the fracture site. The electrodes would then emit a healing signal to mend the fractured bones. It wasn’t until the late 1970s that Drs. Andrew Bassett and Arthur Pilla created a noninvasive PEMF device that succeeded in healing a non-union fracture. The device was called a bone growth stimulator (BGS), and they’re still in use today. FDA Approved Thanks to Dr. Bassett’s research, in 1979, the FDA cleared the use of PEMF therapy for non-union fractures in the United States. Over the next 35 years, the FDA would approve PEMF therapy for a variety of medical uses, such as: Stimulation of muscle fibers Treating urinary incontinence* Enhancing bone formation after lumbar and cervical spine fusion surgery* Treating other diseases* In just 70 years, this new technology has become one of the most widely useful advancements in modern history. The power of PEMF therapy is truly incredible, and we discover new uses for it every year. Who knows what we’ll use it for come 2030? The Future of PEMF Technology Dr. Bassett, a pioneer of the PEMF movement, stated that this technology would become just as, if not more important, than pharmacology and surgery. And looking back at the history of PEMF therapy, it’s hard to disagree. At Vigo, our mission is to carry this movement into the future and empower people worldwide with the life-changing benefits of PEMF therapy. Vigo has a host of different benefits, such as enhanced: Nutrient & Oxygen Delivery Local Blood Flow Waste Removal Muscle Conditioning Performance Physical Fitness Muscular Strength Endurance & Energy Vitality & Well-Being Stress Reduction & Relaxation Sleep Management We’ve harnessed the power of this revolutionary technology to help you live your best healthy, active life.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy is the safe, gentle, easy to use and non-invasive method to decrease pain and inflammation. It has been used and researched in Europe for over 75 years and has been FDA approved for 40 years. The healing works at a cellular level to energize and detox your cells allowing your body to finally heal chronic damaged tissues. It stimulates healing and decreases inflammation in joints, muscles, tendons and even organs. PEMF is FDA approved for bone growth, depression, brain cancer and pain relief. There is also clinical research for increasing energy, sleep, joint repair and mobility, circulation, digestive problems, relaxation and anxiety, and many others. PEMF uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair. We can think of PEMF as a battery charger for our cells. Once our cells’ voltage drops, they are unable to heal and become dysfunctional. By inducing a mild magnetic current into damaged cells, PEMF therapy slows or stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, increases blood flow of the cells, and re-establishes normal cell interaction. “Chronic disease and loss of well-being is always defined by low electrical charge. With enough voltage and raw materials, the body can heal almost anything”, Jerry Tennant, MD, Healing is Voltage.

The cells of the body have an innate organizing intelligence which is why when properly supported they are able to carry out continuous repair and revitalization processes throughout the body. With more such life force energy (Qi) available, the cells will naturally uptake this healing vital force of nature in order to recharge and repair themselves so that proper functioning can occur. Due to this innate organizing intelligence, the cells will only utilize the life force energy (Qi) that is needed and use as much as is needed to address the various health concerns occurring in the body in order of priority. The known benefits of the life force energy (Qi) generated by Vigo Energy Therapy devices as reported by scientific studies include but are not limited to: Recharging the energetic state of all cells of the body directly allowing the cells to activate their own self-repair mechanisms. Increasing the millivolt levels of the cells from as little as 15 millivolts up to the optimal healthy range of 70-90 millivolts. Increasing Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels naturally. ATP is known as the energy carrying molecule of the cell found in all forms of life. Increasing cellular repair rates while decreasing and even ceasing cellular destruction rates Facilitating DNA synthesis and the natural production of stem cells Strengthening the cells’ resistance to harmful environmental factors such as man-made electromagnetic frequencies and radiation. Harmonizing the hemispheres of the brain and acting as a natural anti-depressant. Facilitating a natural sense of calm and improving quality of sleep. Improving mental clarity and cognitive function. Normalizing blood pressure levels and blood sugar levels. Increasing circulation and decreasing inflammation thus facilitating the distribution of oxygen and providing a great deal of pain relief. Boosting libido and enhancing sexual health including improving fertility. Improving cell wall permeability thus enhancing nutritional intake as well as the body’s natural detoxification processes. Strengthening the immune system and protecting DNA from damage by increasing the energy of the hydrogen bonds that hold DNA together. Energizes the body naturally by increasing cellular energy directly, thus reducing fatigue while increasing strength and vitality. Although the benefits are profound the process of utilizing Vigo Energy Therapy devices is simple. Just by placing our medical devices in contact with you, the cells of your body will be able to utilize the life force energy (Qi) to carry out their function of healing.

The therapy wraps your body in artificially created high voltage, which affects the symptoms of [headaches / stiff shoulders / constipation / insomnia]. It was invented by the Japanese professor, Dr. Toshiyuki Hara A.C., in 1928. Since then, it has been tested and developed further as an alternative and complementary therapy that has almost no side-effects. It has since been a certified treatment in different Asian countries, such as Malaysia, Taiwan, and Japan. Therapy that relieves a variety of symptoms and disorders using physical energy, such as heat, sound waves, light, electricity and light beams, is called “physical therapy.” This includes, for example, massages, moxibustion, laser treatment, infrared treatment, spa treatment, etc. Physical therapies are widely used clinically. The high electric potential therapy introduced here is also an example of physical therapy. It makes use of high voltage energy to relive headaches, stiff shoulders, insomnia and constipation. Benefits of Electric Potential Therapy Some of the purported benefits of electric potential therapy include: Regulating the albumin/globulin ratio in the blood Increasing the body’s adaptability Improving sleep Regulating endocrine functions Improving memory Beautifying the skin Increasing calcium, sodium, and gamma globulin levels in the blood Reducing albumin, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus levels in the blood Regulating the cerebral cortex Toning the autonomic nervous system (ANS) Reducing mental and physical fatigue Improving focus Burning fat Reducing stress In this therapy, you will be exposed to an electromagnetic field with a high voltage, low current, and low-frequency alternating current. The electric field will promote the negatively and positively charged particles in your cells and interstitial (extracellular) fluid. This will help your body regain a balance in its bioelectricity, allowing for improved homeostasis. Some conditions that this therapy can help with include: Hypertension Bronchial asthma Diabetes Neurasthenia Coronary heart disease Insomnia Chronic fatigue Psoriasis Menopause Constipation Disorders that cause facial pain Cervical spondylosis Cerebral infarction Cerebral insufficiency

Having healthy cells is not a passive process. Active, regular tuning-up of our cells is not only feasible, but also necessary to slow aging and reduce the risk of cell dysfunction. We are, after all, only as healthy as our cells. Imperceptible cell dysfunction that is not corrected early can lead to disease. Fine-tuning can be done daily in only minutes, using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs). In addition, when there is a known imbalance (when symptoms are present) or there is a known disease or condition, PEMF treatments, used either alone or along with other therapies, can often help cells rebalance dysfunction faster. PEMFs work to: Reduce pain, inflammation, the effects of stress on the body, and platelet adhesion. Improve energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the uptake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells. Balance the immune system and stimulate RNA and DNA. Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue. Relax muscles. PEMFs have been used extensively for decades for many conditions and medical disciplines, and results can be seen in animals as well as humans. The National Institutes of Health have made PEMFs a priority for research. In fact, many PEMF devices have already been approved by the FDA, some specifically to fuse broken bones, wound healing, pain and tissue swelling, and treat depression. Most therapeutic PEMF devices are considered safe by various standards and organizations. WHAT ARE PEMFS AND HOW DO THEY WORK? Science teaches us that everything is energy. Energy is always dynamic and, therefore, has a frequency; it changes by the second or minute, for example, at the very least. All energy is electromagnetic in nature. All atoms, chemicals and cells produce electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Every organ in the body produces it own signature bioelectromagnetic field. Science has proven that our bodies actually project their own magnetic fields and that all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange. When the electromagnetic activity of the body ceases, life ceases. Physics, that is, electromagnetic energy, controls chemistry. This in turn controls tissue function. Disruption of electromagnetic energy in cells causes impaired cell metabolism, whatever the initial cause. This happens anywhere in the disease process. PEMFs address impaired chemistry and thus the function of cells – which in turn, improves health. PEMFs deliver beneficial, health-enhancing EMFs and frequencies to the cells. Low frequency PEMFs of even the weakest strengths pass right through the body, penetrating every cell, tissue, organ and even bone without being absorbed or altered! As they pass through, they stimulate most of the electrical and chemical processes in the tissues. Therapeutic PEMFs are specifically designed to positively support cellular energy, resulting in better cellular health and function. Since the body is complex, PEMFs are ideal devices to be able get good results without needing a myriad of different treatments. AREN’T SOME EMFS BAD FOR YOU? They can be. Evidence is mounting that a new form of pollution called “electrosmog” is a very real threat because it is disruptive to cell metabolism. Manmade, unnatural EMFs come from electrical wiring and equipment, for example, power lines, communications towers, computers, TVs, cell phones – everything from the wiring in our homes to fluorescent lighting to microwave ovens, hair dryers, clock radios, electric blankets and more. Electrosmog EMFs are not designed with the body in mind. They can be a strong inducer of stress in the body and, therefore, drain our energy. Electrosmog includes “dirty” electricity, ground currents, microwaves and radio waves. Microwaves are not only from leaky microwave ovens, but also from cell towers, cell phones and wireless equipment. Electrosmog is all around us and can only be partially blocked. One of the best solutions is to take measures to decrease your exposure. With therapeutic PEMFs, one can purposely add beneficial balancing frequencies to the body to decrease the burden of the negative effects of electrosmog. PEMFS AND MAGNETS: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? PEMFs are frequency-based, applied to either the whole body or parts of the body. PEMFs may only be needed for short periods of time, while the effects last for many hours, setting in motion cellular and whole-body changes to restore and maintain balance in metabolism and health. The body does not acclimate, or “get used to,” the healthy energy signals of therapeutic PEMFs, even if used for a long time, compared to magnets. Stationary (or “static”), non-varying, magnetic fields from magnets have fixed strengths. They are used in mattresses, bracelets, knee wraps and the like. Most have very shallow penetration into the body, resulting in a very limited ability to affect deeper tissues, and they rarely treat all the cells of the body simultaneously. EXPERIENCE WITH PEMFS Vigo Energy Pal is a PEMF systems available now in the market, for daily in-home use, that can help meet your unique needs. Vigo energy therapy products have been available in Asia for over two decades and have been used by tens of thousands of people for a wide variety of problems without significant negative effects for over 20 years.

Women face a variety of health conditions for which the modern medical community often provides no viable solution. These conditions include but are not limited to dysmenorrhea, premature menopause, breast cancer, and osteoporosis. According to the CDC, up to 90% of women experience dysmenorrhea (pain during menstruation) and 30% of those women have severe and often debilitating symptoms. Women who enter menopause are prone to additional health risks such as osteoporosis. Nearly 25% of women over age 65 have osteoporosis of the femur, neck, or lumbar spine. About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. For women in the U.S breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer except lung cancer. While periods and menopause are natural biological processes, the disruptive symptoms often associated with these processes can be naturally harmonized by application of Vigo Energy Therapy. Other non-natural processes such as breast cancer, and osteoporosis can be greatly positively influenced by providing more Life Force Energy to the body as well. Vigo Energy Therapy has been known to help the body self-regulate on a cellular level, providing bodily systems with the therapeutic energy that they need in order to function optimally.

Early Signs of Effectiveness Based on the experiences we have seen with people using Vigo Energy Therapy Device to date, many early signs of efficacy have been known to take place as more Life Force Energy is offered to the body. These initial indications of improvement in wellbeing are some keys to be on the lookout for as you first start to use our devices to help you know you are on the right track: Sustained Energy Boost Pain Reduction Better Sleep Vivid Dreams (a sign of enhanced brain activity) Increased Vitality Increased Libido Improved Digestion Easier Breathing Increased Mental Clarity Normalized Blood Glucose Levels Normalized Blood Pressure Levels Improvements on specific conditions In addition to these early signs of efficacy, it is likely you will also note rapid improvements that are specific to your condition. For example, for those who have a brain-based condition such as Parkinson’s, dementia, stroke-paralysis, or a traumatic brain injury, the following early signs of efficacy have also been experienced and reported by many Vigo users: Increased Mobility (even in previously paralyzed limbs) Ceasing of Tremors Improved Coordinated Movement Enhanced Memory and Situational Awareness Improved Thought and Speech Patterns Early signs of efficacy typically take place within the first 3-6 weeks of product use. Some people even note improvements within the first few days, while others may need up to 2-3 months to feel significant changes. Many factors can play into how long it will take for someone to start feeling better while using Vigo Energy Therapy Device. Things like age, severity, and complexity of health conditions, how long someone has been dealing with their condition and how much Life Force Energy someone has available can all affect when someone may start to experience improvement. For example, older adults may need more time to note improvements then someone with the same condition who is younger and is using the same device. This is normal considering that typically as we age, healing processes take longer in general. Although factors like age and how long you have been afflicted with your condition cannot be changed, the amount of Life Force Energy you provide to your body can be optimized in order to experience faster and more profound improvements. The more Life Force Energy your body has to utilize the better.

The best way to deal with potential adverse reactions to PEMF therapy is to anticipate them. Because magnetic therapies have such a wide array of actions within the body, it is not uncommon to experience some discomfort, especially when treatment has just begun. It is our experience that these reactions happen about 5% of the time, and tend to be more common when the entirety of the body is treated, as opposed to local treatments. HOW SERIOUS ARE ADVERSE REACTIONS TO PEMF THERAPY? Most adverse reactions are mild and temporary and can be managed by simply continuing the therapy. In individuals with electrical hypersensitivity and electromagnetic hypersensitivity, these reactions are more common and more uncomfortable. Rarely does magnetic therapy have to be discontinued as a result. Magnetic therapies can alter circulation, stimulate cell and tissue repair, stimulate nerve cells, cause relaxation, affect blood pressure and heart rate, alter the absorption of medications and nutrients, affect acupuncture energy movement, stimulate vision changes, among many other actions. So, overreactions by the body, perceived or measurable, do happen. WHAT ADVERSE REACTIONS CAN OCCUR DURING PEMF THERAPY? Sudden increases in circulation, especially in ischemic tissues (areas with restricted or reduced blood flow) may lead to uncomfortable increases in circulation for a short time after the magnetic field has been applied. The increase in circulation, while usually a desirable effect, can lead to a surge in oxidative stress. It is desirable to have adequate antioxidant support in the body before beginning treatment. Sudden improvements in circulation may also lead to aggravations of existing extensive or severe inflammatory processes, typically in the skin. Aggravation of hives is likewise possible and should be considered before starting treatment. When nerve cells are suddenly stimulated, pain may be temporarily aggravated due to the increased signal traffic in the nerve and/or improved circulation to the nerve/s. We see this in individuals who have had prior fractures or scars. Magnetic fields applied distal to the fracture site or scar may temporarily cause pain at the fracture site. If there are multiple blockages along the body, magnetic treatment may cause the phenomenon of “chasing the pain”. In this situation, when one area is treated and improved, another area that may have been quiet, now begins to show pain or discomfort. Normally these problems are not a concern, but should be recognized as a normal consequence of magnetic therapy. In some situations, where the magnetic therapy causes pain in a body part that does not normally have pain, this may be an indication of an unidentified underlying problem in that body part, and medical evaluation should be considered. In this case, the magnetic therapy serves as an early warning process. OTHER WAYS PEMF MACHINES IMPACT THE BODY Magnetic therapies commonly lower blood pressure and decrease heart rate, actions that are almost always positive. These actions can pose a concern for individuals who are elderly, on medication with blood-pressure-lowering actions, are frail, have labile or easily altered blood pressures, have been on extensive bed rest, are in shock or have overwhelming systemic infection, or who have non-brisk, compensatory vascular reflexes. Because people in these situations can have faint when rising from a seated or laying position, they should be warned about this possibility and the need to allow the blood pressure and/or heart rate to stabilize when changing positions. Usually these reactions settle down as magnetic therapy continues and stabilizes body functions. General reactions occasionally happen as well, particularly in those who have or are suspected of having magnetic field sensitivity. Possible reactions include: increased fatigue, aggravations of sleep, increased pain, vague weakness or loss of energy, metallic tastes, dizziness, “brain fog”, thirst, increased urination, warmth, cold sensations, prickly sensations in the skin, colors in the visual fields, heaviness of the extremities and palpitations. Mostly, people who experience these reactions are thought to have systemic hemodynamic or autonomic instability and/or neurotoxicity, due to chronic infections, chemical sensitivity or environmental toxicities. Many have chronic regional pain syndromes, fibromyalgia and/or chronic fatigue syndrome. The degree of the sensitivity reactions will determine the approach to take with adjusting the magnetic therapy. If the adverse reactions are intolerable, you can lessen them by making some small changes to your protocols. These changes include using less often, decreasing treatment times, and limiting the amount of the body that is being treated. These changes should only be necessary on a short-term basis, as such reactions tend to diminish relatively quickly with continued treatment.

The idea of energy treatments has been around for centuries, but only in the last few decades have we understood how to use them. Energy medicine practices come from many diverse cultures and certain healing traditions; they can be found all over the world – even in hospitals! These techniques aim to heal imbalances in energy fields that are formed in and around the human body. PEMF is a therapeutic treatment that falls under the category of energy medicine. This is why it is important to understand the essentials and the benefits that it provides as a whole. Scientific principles of physics and bio-electronics are used to back this particular energy healing method. Some people believe energy healing is some kind of magical practice which makes them hesitant to try it. However, the truth is that energy healing makes use of science by implementing stimulation at a cellular level. There are many other energy healing services, all of which can be used on a person for specific purposes. Acupuncture, reflexology, and special massages can provide other energy healing treatment options. The general benefit of PEMF is to stimulate cells by recharging them at the bioelectrical level, which increases cellular efficiency. The advantage of this procedure is that it is safe, thorough, non-invasive and there are very few side effects… at least with low frequency and low-intensity PEMF systems. This makes it an alternative that can benefit many patients looking for healing solutions to all kinds of health issues. This practice is also known as magnetic field stimulation and its use has become extremely popular worldwide. Many athletes and professional sporting organisations use PEMF for injury recovery, pre and post-workout recovery and increases in athletic performance. The correction of cellular dysfunction and the improvement of cellular communication all through the body is one of the first things listed as a benefit of PEMF. This stimulation is extremely helpful in the process of encouraging the body to work at optimal efficiency on a cellular level. PEMF can be considered as an exercise for your cells and can also help to boost your energy levels. In fact, PEMF therapy reproduces the same effects one gets from exercise. It produces the same microcurrents, which are generated from the physical movement of the body through the piezoelectric effect. It’s kind of like turbocharging the body with a very efficient delivery system which PEMF therapy can provide. Athletic performance improvements, as well as a general increase in stamina and endurance, are all experienced with this type of therapy. PEMF improves the process of faster recovery after any type of physical injury or surgery. This makes it a very attractive procedure for people who play different kinds of sports. The main benefit of this therapy is to help people avoid discomfort and pain by reducing inflammation and increasing oxygenation without the use of pharmaceuticals or other expensive treatments. Improved circulation and muscle relaxation have also been clinically proven with PEMF. These benefits also help to improve sleep. When all of those elements are improved, there is also an improvement in the general mental state of an individual. Given those factors, the use of PEMF can also be very helpful in fighting anxiety and stress disorders. PEMF therapy is FDA approved in the US for anxiety and depression where the patient or individual is unresponsive to pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, it can also be used to treat other ailments such as brain cancer, non-union bone fractures and incontinence. All of these benefits are more than enough evidence that we are dealing with a proven alternative to address many kinds of imbalances. This therapy allows the human body to experience beneficial changes and means the patient may not require orthodox medical treatment which can be expensive, uncomfortable, stressful and can have various side effects. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is often used by people who suffer from Slow-healing wounds Joint and soft tissue inflammation Peripheral neuropathy Constant tiredness or chronic fatigue Peripheral neuropathy There is no denying that energy medicine has proven to be a very reliable alternative for many purposes. It is essential to remember that you should always consult with your doctor before you engage in any type of alternative treatment. With that said, the benefits and the lack of side effects or complications have made energy medicine incredibly valuable and attractive.

The field of alternative medicine has many names for therapies, but the most common term you’ll hear is complementary therapy. PEMF therapy is considered a part of alternative medicine, or in other words it is a complementary therapy. While the medical field creates ground rules, it is important to establish that the first and ONLY rule of holistic medicine is that there should be a common goal. That goal is to treat the whole person. This is where conventional medicine and alternative medicine or holistic medicine differ. Conventional medicine focuses on treatment of symptoms. Alternative medicine seeks to get to the root cause of the health issue at hand. The good news is that any natural or alternative therapy can be used in conjunction with any conventional therapy or holistic therapy. Let’s take a look at how this might play out in this story from a woman that began using her Vigo Energy Pal in October 2020. We changed the name to “Lynn” for the purpose of this article, but she is a real user of PEMF therapy, and her story is a great way of explaining how to use PEMF therapy as a complementary therapy alongside her conventional treatment. “I first received my Vigo Energy Pal the last weekend in October 2020. I had struggled most of my life with joint and muscle pain, but it continued to get worse after having my thyroid removed. Over the course of the next five years, I would discover that my tendons, ligaments, and surrounding tissue would easily tear and cause injury with surgeries to follow. It was discouraging to think I was constantly getting injured like this. So, I began to use the device. I used it for 60 minutes as suggested the first day. I used it late at night, so I immediately noticed I had energy. I couldn’t sleep! I busied myself cleaning and straightening the house until I felt sleepy enough to lay down. I slept great but noticed I woke up according my usual schedule, at 5 A.M. This was good news. I had not been able to wake up without feeling as though I were in a fog since I had my thyroid removed. It was incredible. Over the next few days I felt I finally had enough energy to clean on a regular basis, something I had not experienced since before I had my daughter. The next 2 weeks lent itself to proving to me just how effective PEMF therapy is. When I first began to use the device, I noticed my back still hurt so much I needed my husband to help me get up off the floor. After one week, I was able to get up on my own without pain. Within the second full week, I was having less pain, and I was no longer waking up to hip pain. This was incredible! Two year later, and I am more organized, I think clearly, and I can think on my feet. I am also able to keep a schedule for my business that I had not kept in several years. I was an early riser, always getting a lot accomplished before my work day ever started. I was now able to get back to working out before work, and I had energy all day. Two year with PEMF therapy, and I could go on and on about other things I’ve noticed. You owe it yourself to try Vigo Energy Pal. Lynn is not the only one who has had this experience. There are still plenty more that have experienced the healing benefits of PEMF devices in their own home. How can you access this abundance of healing in your own home? The FDA has made approvals for PEMF therapy that we never thought possible, by approving devices for the healing of brain cancer, non-union fractures, and more. Those who believe in holistic or alternative medicine can continue to promote the healing benefits as well as the mission to treat the whole person. You can now access PEMF devices to use in the comfort of your own home and on your own terms.

Many people suffer from crippling migraine headaches, resulting in lost time from work and family activities. Unfortunately, many of these individuals lack the hope of an effective treatment, forcing them to simply cope with their condition. Migraine attacks can be brought about by a variety of causes. Some of these include not getting proper sleep, working too hard or living a stressful lifestyle. PEMF Therapy offers hope to those who suffer from this debilitating condition. This article will explain how PEMF works and its uses in treating migraine headaches. What are Migraines? Migraines are headaches that produce strong pain, well beyond what most people experience when they have a normal headache. In addition to pain, some patients report experiencing flashes of light in their visual field, blind spots in their vision and even tingling in parts of their body. Migraine headaches are severe medical events which can last for hours and sometimes even days. The migraine sufferer experiences hightened sensitivity to sound and light. In some cases, nausea and even vomiting can occur. Migraine Causes While modern science continues to probe the root cause of migraine headaches, their exact origin remains unknown. One of the reasons for this is the variety of symptoms that individual patients report. Because each sufferer has a unique experience of a migraine, it is difficult to isolate specific triggers or causes. However, research has provided us with a list of the most common causes of migraine headaches: Hormonal Changes. These often occur during menstruation. Physical Causes. Poor posture, as well as stiffness in the shoulders and neck, can lead to migraines. Lack of proper rest is also a factor. Caffeine and Alcohol. Beverages containing these substances are often linked to migraine attacks. Scientists have also identified the additive, Tyramine, as a migraine trigger. Hormone Replacement Therapy, Oral Contraceptives, and Sleep Aids. External Factors. Some patients report that exterior phenomena can lead to migraines. Things like flashing images, smoke, very loud noises, temperature changes, and even strong odors can be triggers that produce a migraine attack. Due to the individuality of each patient’s experience, modern science has been unable to produce one single cure for migraines. Changes in lifestyle, dietary adjustments and painkillers have all been helpful for some patients. In extreme cases, surgery has produced effective results. Fortunately, a new treatment has emerged that many patients find helpful in treating their migraine symptoms. PEMF Therapy has been shown to be effective in treating migraines. Recent research has shown a link between PEMF and migraines that offers hope to those who suffer from this debilitating condition. PEMF Therapy and Migraines? As this article has stated, there is no one cure for the treatment of migraine headaches. Due to this lack of a reliable cure, modern treatments have the aim of reducing the frequency and severity of attacks. Many scientists believe that the root cause of migraines is poor circulation which restricts the flow of blood to the brain. When poor circulation is present in a patient, blood flow becomes constricted in one area or lobe of the brain. The leftover blood flows to another area of the brain. This can lead to severe pain of migraine headaches. One solution for poor blood circulation is vasodilatation facilitated by PEMF therapy. PEMF seeks to expand the blood vessels, creating a wider passageway in the body for blood flow. As the blood vessels expand, blood circulation is improved in all areas of the body. For the purposes of the treatment of migraines, improved blood flow to the brain can alleviate and even prevent the symptoms of migraines. Another benefit of PEMF Therapy is that it increases the amount of energy in the cells of the body. By allowing red blood cells to repel one another, thickening of the blood and the formation of clots is lessened, permitting blood to flow more freely through the circulatory system. The increased blood flow to the brain allows for greater healing of neural pathways. This healing can prevent the root cause of migraines. A recent study of PEMF Therapy and migraines has produced hopeful results. The study utilized placebos and was double-blind, ensuring unbiased results. Randomly dividing the subjects of the study into two groups, one group received PEMF Therapy while the others received a placebo treatment. During the study, all participants were asked to maintain a log of their migraine symptoms. In the PEMF Therapy group, 73% reported decreased migraines. In the placebo group, only 50% reported this positive result. Compared to other treatments for migraines which exist today, PEMF offers strong benefits to patients. It is completely safe. Unlike more extreme measures, such as surgery, it is non-invasive. While prescription medications often bring with them side effects, this is not the case with PEMF. The ability of PEMF Therapy to increase blood circulation has been proven to result in a reduction of migraine symptoms. Increased blood flow has many other benefits for patients unrelated to migraines. It is a treatment that every person who suffers from migraine headaches should explore.

PEMF, otherwise known as pulsed electromagnetic frequency, has been used to heal human beings for decades by helping with cell rejuvenation. First used in the 1950s, this therapy harnesses the power of electricity and magnetism to awaken and heal cells in the body. The United States, Western Europe, Japan, Russia, and Australia were some of the first countries to utilize this therapy. In 2007, the FDA approved PEMF therapy for non-union fractures. PEMF specifically creates an electromagnetic field around the person or wound that is trying to be healed, and in order to create this field, Vigo developes devices you can use, including home-use devices. And many use Vigo devices on a daily basis in order to get the most benefits possible from the therapy. Scientists believe that an exogenous electromagnetic field exists around all of us and is responsible for many of the biological processes in our bodies. While PEMF therapy hasn't been officially approved by the FDA to treat spinal cord injuries, there have been many studies in animals (rats and dogs) that show it can improve function. For example, rats who received the therapy were more aware of their foot location than the rats that didn’t. PEMF can also help improve sensation and decrease secondary issues like pressure shores and spasticity in people with paralysis. In Europe, PEMF therapy has been used to treat people with cerebral palsy and spinal cord injuries for years specifically to help lessen spasms. The benefits of doing PEMF therapy on a regular basis can have monumental effects on someone with a spinal cord injury. And the exciting part - many people report it has also helped improve motor function, especially in those with new injuries. It can even help minimize pain, improve tissue health (which it’s able to do by making the paralyzed parts of the body more connected to the spinal cord and less "trophic"). It can also help improve sensation such as restoring partial sensation to the bladder. There are many stories of how Vigo has improved function in people with spinal cord injuries as well. One man with a C2 level injury, with no movement from the neck down, has been experiencing exciting improvements from his PEMF therapy. He uses Vigo Energy Pal each day for 120 minutes to recharge his body’s cells. He says that doing PEMF therapy on a regular basis has helped improve the blood flow in his body so much that it’s helped lessen muscle soreness, reduce spasms, increased his nerve sensation, and helped regulate his bowels. Vigo Energy Pal warms up like a heating pad, providing warmth and comforting sensations. In addition to helping improve nerve function, it helps relax muscles, improve joint flexibility, reduce pain, improve circulation and alleviate stress and depression. The verdict? We strongly encourage all people with spinal cord injuries and non-union fracture injuries to try PEMF therapy at the Rehabilitation Department in Armfulcare Hospital, as the reports from the people who have used it are too good to overlook.
