If you missed last Sunday’s Tripawd Talk Radio episode about electro magnetic frequencies (EMFs), wound healing, phantom pain and animals, now you can download the podcast or just listen in the player below.
We learned so much in this episode! Let’s start with a basic introduction of what EMFs are all about. According to the World Health Organization:
Electric fields are created by differences in voltage: the higher the voltage, the stronger will be the resultant field. Magnetic fields are created when electric current flows: the greater the current, the stronger the magnetic field. An electric field will exist even when there is no current flowing. If current does flow, the strength of the magnetic field will vary with power consumption but the electric field strength will be constant. (read more about EMFs here)
EMF fields and frequencies have not been proven to be harmful in themselves — the science is still out and nobody has yet proven that EMFs can cause health problems.
However clinical studies have shown without a doubt that if you remove high EMF frequencies from areas of the body that have been injured, traumatized or amputated, the body’s cells and tissues respond by healing faster.
Whether animal or human, the kind of tissue that is operated on or injured, no matter where it is on the body, is the same class of tissue. What scientists do know is that the effects of the absence of EMFs will occur at the cellular level of this body tissue. Many universities and scientists around the world are studying this phenomena, like these researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas.
The effect of removing EMFs was studied as far back as 1989. A veterinarian studied injured horses to show that the absence of high EMFs allowed healing at the cellular level to occur. Read more in this study by Equine Veterinarian Dr. John D. Twidale.
Today we know that wound healing times can be increased by shielding the area on and around the amputation incision from high frequency EMFs, as visually demonstrated here in a human amputee patient’s experience.
Researchers have also seen how dogs demonstrating pain indicators will typically show a visible difference in comfort level within two to four hours after owners apply an EMF shield to the dog’s resting areas or directly to the amputation site.
There’s so much more we talked about, be sure to listen below.
