A Testimonial: Sleep Apnea & PEMF

Nov

Sleep Apnea is a condition where one’s breathing stops and begins again during sleep. There are different types of sleep apnea ranging from excessive muscle relaxation (causing airway obstruction) to when one’s brain does not send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing and a combination of the two. Ultimately, a sleep apnea patient has a reduced level of oxygen circulating in their blood during sleep.

Symptoms: loud snoring, abrupt awakening accompanied by shortness of breath, waking with a dry mouth or sore throat, headache, insomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, difficulty focusing and irritability.

During a diagnostic sleep study, the severity of one’s sleep apnea is measured by the Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI); this is a numerical measure that accounts for the number of pauses in one’s breathe per hour of sleep. The AHI is used to classify the severity of one’s sleep apnea. Normal AHI is fewer than 5 events per hour of sleep up to severe sleep apnea with more than 30 events per hour of sleep.

Treatment: a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine is the leading therapy for sleep apnea where a patient wears a face or nasal mask during sleep. The mask is connected to a pump, providing positive airflow into the nasal packages in order to keep the airway open. This therapy is a long term therapy that can be accompanied by some mild side effects.

EK is a 73 year old female who was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea in 1997. Her AHI has been measured at 42 or higher over all of those years. This would be considered severe sleep apnea. EK used a CPAP machine for 19 years which had not improved her sleep apnea over the course of time. EK started using a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) device in July, 2016. Over the course of the summer, EK was able to use her CPAP machine less and less. By September, EK stopped using the CPAP machine under the supervision of her primary healthcare provider. Her body had dramatically changed over the course of her PEMF treatments . After a couple of months of being off the CPAP machine and continuing with PEMF treatments, EK consulted with her sleep specialist who ran another sleep study to measure her AHI level. As of the end of November, 2016 EK’s AHI score is 4. She is no longer suffering from sleep apnea!

PEMF therapy jump starts the healing process in the body at the cellular level. It is used for treating: acute and chronic pain, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, as well as accelerating the healing time of injuries, increasing energy, sleep disorders, fatigue and it is an excellent anti-aging strategy.

PEMF therapy is natural and safe for individuals of all ages, including children, the elderly and even pets.

There are no negative side effects to PEMF use.
