The combination of electric and magnetic energy helps to stimulate the muscles, control body temperature and heart rate. When there is a difference in electric and magnetic energy it leads to illness. The use of electrical energy or electromagnetic radiation to treat the imbalance of electric and magnetic forces in the body is known as ‘electromagnetic therapy’. Electromagnetic therapy involves applying electromagnetic radiation to body parts, this is done by gently inducing impulses which fuel and invigorate the cells in the body. Electromagnetic therapy is used to treat wide number of diseases such as chronic pains, headaches, back pains, spinal cord displacement, arthritis, ulcers, heart diseases and asthma.
