Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MRT)

Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MRT) is an alternative medical practice that regenerates cells through exposure to electromagnetic pulses. The National institute of Health has recently made magnetic resonance a research priority as there are a number of emerging practical implications for therapeutic use. Although this may sound like Magnetic Resonance Therapy is cutting edge, it has actually been available throughout the world since the mid 1900’s. Interestingly, Veterinarians were the first medical doctors allowed to utilize this therapy in practice and it was commonly used to speed the healing process of fractured bones for racehorses. So it’s a sure bet, with money on the line like that, that it’s worth it to consider magnetic resonance!

Magnetic Resonance Therapy was first used in the U.S. to advance the healing process of fractured bones in the mid 70’s. Additional uses include combating incontinence and more recently helping with depression and anxiety related to PTSD. In fact, a magnetic resonance procedure to treat PTSD is being offered in Southern California at the Brain Treatment Center. The therapy is free of charge to former military personnel suffering from the symptoms of depression, PTSD and other trauma related to their tours of duty. A veteran reports that MRT has “set my frequencies right, I’m able to proudly embrace my military service. I am able to keep the memory, and to be able to go there and to not be controlled by it,” said Richard Leiby, to the Washington Post. If this therapy works for the heavy trauma that a soldier deals with, imagine the implications for other victims of other trauma. MRT could have a huge impact for victims of abuse and natural disaster, refugees, and even bullying.

Europe is currently at the forefront of MRT in most trauma related settings, although studies and trials such as the one in the New York Times article have begun in the United States as well. It is even being used in Israel for everyday implementations such as treatment for migraine headaches.  Watch this short YouTube video testimonial of a recent patient who is achieving great results using Magnetic Resonance Therapy.

While the psychological potential is immense, Magnetic Resonance Therapy has a lot to offer for physical ailments as well! MRT is being used in pain management and to combat inflammation. Magnetic resonance relaxes muscles and accelerates healing of bones and tissue. Magnetic resonance helps with blood and tissue oxygenation, which stimulates circulation, helps with sleep quality, regulates cholesterol and blood pressure levels leading to an overall uptake in energy. MR therapy has the ability to increase motion, reduce surgery related muscle loss, increase nerve regeneration and capillary formation leading to quicker recovery times from multitudes of injuries and procedures.

While Magnetic Resonance Therapy can be helpful to someone injured, it also has practical implications for a healthy individual. The processes that are amplified by magnetic resonance could help all of us. MRT could be exceptionally beneficial to a professional athlete or manual laborer. These fields require constant stress on the body and MRT would significantly reduce recovery time. Paired with other healthy practices, MRT should be another tool to keep a fine tuned machine like the body running at peak performance.  Racehorse trainers will concur!

Magnetic Resonance Therapy is administered with a PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) therapy device. PEMFs send electromagnetic waves all the way through cells, tissue, organs and bones at various frequencies, signal strengths and wave types (Sine, Square, Sawtooth) There is no universal setting for these machines that heals all, but through proper use and dialing in, PEMF’s can help ailments across the board.

Until recently in the United States MRT was mostly used in Orthopedic environments both commercially and in a low powered format for the average consumer. These products are not sold as PEMFS but rather “Wellness Devices,” due to the fact that manufacturers are not able to make medicinal claims about them. This device looks like a yoga mat or electric massager, and is meant to be used on a flat surface, like a massage table or floor. Higher powered PEMFs can be obtained in the U.S. but require a prescription. Each injury or problem needs to be addressed in a specific and targeted manner in order to achieve the desired outcome and have efficacy.

Although the treatment does vary, I can give you an idea of how it goes as described by Dr. Mark George of the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. George, like the Brain Treatment center is using PEMF devices as an alternative to antidepressants in hopes of offering a less invasive procedure and is showing some success! His treatment, “aims to jump-start under active mood-regulating circuitry by targeting the top left front part of the brain with an electromagnetic coil that emits 3,000 pulses over a 37-minute session. It can be safely administered in a doctor’s office with few side effects — unlike more invasive brain stimulation treatments, such as electroconvulsive therapy.”

This means that by sending these pulsed waves through the brain Dr. George provides therapeutic relief that would normally take much more invasive procedures to induce, such as drugs or an actual surgery. A session such as this is what can be expected in Magnetic Resonance Therapy, but as mentioned earlier, it can take place in any part of the body with a varying degree of variables and approaches in order to tailor to any specific ailment.

From the psychological to the physical benefits of Magnetic Resonance Therapy, it can be seen that this old treatment is finding new and exciting implications. Don’t suffer any longer, click here to get in touch and we can talk about an MRT protocol that would be good for your needs today!

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is brought to our Laguna Office through the beautiful and relaxing Magnesphere™.  The basic physics principle by which a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device applies an external magnetic field to alter molecular or atomic targets in the body to achieve its results. The MRI device alters the molecules in the body with a very powerful magnet, in such a dramatic manner as to be able to obtain an image. In contrast, the Magnesphere™ device utilizes the same principle, albeit at targeted field strengths of a much lower (physiologic) level.  With precise, physiologic magnetic fields, the Magnesphere™ produces a balancing effect on the Autonomic Nervous System, reducing pain, fatigue and a variety of other ailments.
