BPH in Rochester Hills
PEMF is a noninvasive method that generates both an electrical and magnetic field and is used in orthopedics, neurology, and urology. It has been reported to have an anti-inflammatory effect and increases healing and blood circulation. The idea of using this method for BPH is to improve prostate blood flow and reduce the size of the prostate gland.
THE UNDERLYING CAUSES OF BPH
1. Poor circulation
2. Cellular Toxicity
3. Low Cellular Energy
A natural question you may have is whether there are other less risky or dangerous procedures or treatment approaches that can be used that are effective, particularly in the setting of known enlargement without obstruction. There have been two therapeutic studies recently that lend support to the use of PEMFs to noninvasively, and safely, reduce the size of the prostate. One of these is a study in humans, the other in dogs. PEMF’s used on humans and canines, showed great results. Another study showed that PEMFs could possibly reduce the growth of prostate cancer cells.
Thousands of studies on PEMF therapy and how it works have shown that it can reduce inflammation as it oxygenates the tissues in the body. The electromagnetic fields have also been shown to increase blood flow, possibly preventing blockages in veins, arteries, and blood vessels. Additionally, PEMF’s have been shown to reduce swelling as the result of reducing inflammation in and around muscles, joints, and tissues. This lends credence to the studies on BHP in that the electromagnetic fields could reduce the swelling of the prostate.
PEMF therapies appear to be a promising approach to help manage a challenging health condition, BPH, very common in men, particularly as they get older. This is especially important given that the current alternative therapy tend to be more invasive with the risk of side effects and for which current medical management is not very helpful in the long run. It is quite likely that PEMF treatment will have to be long-term in order to achieve the best results. It also appears that higher intensity PEMFs are necessary to achieve the results found in the 2 studies cited above. PEMF Therapy can be a great complimentary therapy for anyone with BHP, and it is important to talk to your doctor about ALL of your options.
