The growing interest and utilization of technologies that make the use of electromagnetic waves for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes and the increase in scientific publications on this subject, can help us clarify, what methodologies can obtain the greatest benefits, with quick solution times, can be very helpful when a person is afflicted with a health problem.

Trying to offer the most accredited scientific explanations inherent in the mechanisms of the interactions between electromagnetic fields and organic tissues is the aim of many researchers. Researchers have tried to demonstrate and illustrate how a series of electrical, chemical and biological reactions can take place, which then produces certain results. Many gave satisfactory explanations, others stopped at plausible hypotheses pending the development of further research and insights. But, when all the possible interpretations offered by the scientific world were not enough to explain certain phenomena, all that remains is to understand the importance of the content of information that an electromagnetic signal is able to provide. In this case, only quantum physics can help us and even through understanding a phenomenon that can be explained with these theories can be quite complicated, we can at least verify its practical effects, the empirical results.

The effects that electromagnetic fields can cause, when they hit an organic tissue, are many and not all of them are known yet.


These effects can be widely grouped into the following types:


  • Modification of the electrical properties of cells and tissues:
    • changes in membrane potential,
    • ion displacement,
    • microcurrent formation.
  • Pharmacological effects:
    • analgesic,
    • anti-inflammatory.
  • Stimulation of hormonal and enzymatic processes:
    • endorphins,
    • serotonin,
    • stimulation of the hypothalamus to the production of neurohormones.
  • Increase in temperature, resulting in:
    • vasodilation and hyperemia,
    • release of cytokines that stimulate the arrival of leukocytes,
    • analgesic effect for reduction of conduction in sensitive nerve endings,
    • acceleration of cellular metabolism,
    • damage or destruction of cancer cells.
  • Modification of the biological properties of the cells involving:
    • Cell membrane, with protein alterations and consequent,
      • variations in permeability,
      • changes in ionic exchanges (especially changes in the calcium content of cells),
      • transport of amino acids.
    • Cell organelles with variations,
      • ATP,
      • oxygenation,
      • protein synthesis,
      • chromatin.
    • Biological changes to the tissues:
      • angiogenesis,
      • pH change,
      • anti-edema,
      • revitalization of neuronal connections.
    • Resonance of elements that make up a cell:
      • membrane,
      • microtubules,
      • DNA,
    • Variations of gene expression, with effects on:
      • cell regeneration,
      • repair.
    • Stem cell activation.
