If you’ve been reading my posts in the past, you’ve quickly learned how many incredible health conditions and pre-existing conditions can be treated by pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy. I feel it is an incredible and alternative solution to standardized medication. At times, it can be a great supplement to medication and doctor’s orders. Other times, it can be powerful as a standalone treatment. Additionally, PEMF isn’t always needed for treatment. As health rises to the top of everyone’s minds more and more, overall wellness is also important. People are waking up to the fact that healthcare should not be a reactive measure. It should be a proactive measure. PEMF therapy can be used as a preventative measure to fight off future infections and health conditions. The middle of winter is a perfect time to discuss the flu and bronchitis since it’s spreading now and will spread more in the coming months. Amazingly, PEMF therapy can beat bronchitis!
Bronchitis And The Mechanics Of The Lungs
When you inhale, your diaphragm tightens and is pushed down. The added space in the chest cavity allows your lungs to expand. The intercostal muscles between your ribs also help to open the chest cavity. They contract to pull your rib cage both upward and outward when you inhale. As your lungs expand, air is sucked in through your nose or mouth. The air travels down your windpipe and into your lungs. After passing through your bronchial tubes, the air finally reaches and enters the alveoli (air sacs).
Side note: bronchitis is the inflammation of (“itis”) of the bronchi in the lungs. Through the thin walls of the alveoli, oxygen from the air passes to the surrounding blood vessels. A red blood cell protein called hemoglobin moves oxygen from the air sacs into the blood. Due to inflammation of the bronchi, when inhaling too much, brings a deep cough. It’s a cough that tells someone you’re sick when you do it—deep, raspy, and you can hear the phlegm—you know what I’m referring to.
PEMF Treatment Of Bronchitis: Overview
Specifically, how PEMF waves heal us can be explained by looking our body’s natural processes at the molecular level. Our blood is both oxygenated and deoxygenated. Our arteries carry oxygenated blood from our heart to our organs and tissues. Our veins, in turn, bring deoxygenated blood back to the heart. As a whole, the respiratory system is what supplies our blood with oxygen. When we breathe, our lungs warm the air to meet our body temperature. But where does pulsed electromagnetic field therapy come into play here? PEMF therapy shines in a multitude of ways.
PEMF waves allow for a supercharged process of oxygenating the blood. The process starts in the lungs where PEMF waves open up the alveoli—air sacs of the lungs allowing for rapid air exchange—which increase blood flow to the lungs. The PEMF waves communicate to the alveoli cells. The results are more oxygen molecules binding to the hemoglobin—the protein molecule in red blood cells. The hemoglobin’s job is to carry that oxygen to the cells. With more oxygen bound to the molecule, the more oxygen can be transported throughout the body.
Bronchitis At The Molecular Level
Electromagnetic waves at the right frequency and amplitude, reduce inflammation in “joints, muscles, and tissues. When inflammation is reduced, swelling is also reduced, thus reducing pain.” — Source: PEMF Therapy Education.
PEMF therapy is a powerful tool in that it can stop the damage before it spirals out of control. As I mentioned before, coughing is caused by the inflammation. Excessive coughing only brings about more inflammation as a result. Therapy waves suppress the coughs, which in turn, subdue the potential additional inflammation (and pain).
Just like with many other bodily processes, PEMF shines in that in supercharges normal cells to function at maximum capacity. For sicker cells, the waves give them a boost to return to normal capacity and heal faster.
