VLF PEMF and Magnetism
Magnetic field is not visible to the naked eye but magnetic waves are still flowing through everything in the Universe as they have wavelengths of millions miles.
Magnetism practices have a long history of using permanent magnets in attempts to achieve benefits.
It is a holistic method to try to apply magnets everywhere on the body.
Magnetism uses bracelets, rings, necklaces, jewelry, spot magnets, wraps, braces, mattress pads and insoles.
How does Magnetism works?
In the past many practitioners believed that magnets may improve blood flow to the area where the magnet is placed.
This may sound logical because magnets are attracting the iron we have in our blood.
But due to controversy of scientific studies results FDA did not approve any technologies related to use of static or permanent magnets as well as banned any health claims for static magnetism.
Static or permanent magnets
Among static or permanent magnets Neodymium ones are the world's strongest. Their filed intensity may reach thousands of gauss and now they are mainly used in children toys.
The stronger the gauss surface strength the larger the magnetic field is. No side effects have been reported from using even so powerful static magnets as having 10.000-15.000 gauss intensity.
Eastern European and Asian alternative practitioners still consider magnetism practices useful. Usually rather strong Neodymium or metal magnets are applied in attempts to get beneficial soothing environment.
During last 50 years pulsed Magnetism or PEMF technology appeared to be more promising and the attention of scientists, traditional and alternative practitioners mainly switched from static magnetism to the pulsed one.
Pulsed magnetism (PEMF)
Magnetic fields naturally exist as energy waves coming from the Sun, Earth's Core and Ionosphere. Small electrical currents and magnetic fields also naturally exist as a part of chemical reactions and biological processes.
PEMF coils emit similar rapid pulsing Magnetic Waves nearly identical to these frequencies created by the Sun, Earth and tissues.
They produce safe, natural magnetic fields alternating at very or ultra low frequencies (VLF), and complementary to chemistry and functionality.
“Rapid Pulsing” means that North and South Magnetic Poles are alternated at speeds around 8-60 times per second creating a dynamic Very Low Frequency Magnetic Wave with a wavelength of 6 million meters with the same length and intensity as the Sun's and Earth's natural magnetic waves. This is the longest magnetic field in the universe able to spread all around and penetrate deep.
The possible advantage of Pulsed Magnetic Fields over the traditional Static Magnets may be in the dynamic properties of the field. Pulsation may bring more energy and allows to achieve more powerful effects with the same or even lower intensity magnetic fields.
Pulsed magnetism is also believed to eliminate adaptation to the static magnetic field, making even the long-term use more effective.

Dr. Pawluk studied many years Pulsed Magnetism use in the Eastern Europe where it is a standard practice and he considers that the most important feature of PEMF is not a frequency or a waveshape but intensity.

There are a lot of reviews and meta-analysises published on Pubmed.gov about efficiency of static, permanent and PEMF magnetism.
A lot of studies and researches about pulsed electromagnetic fields can also be found there and in other scientific online journals.

What is PubMed?
PubMed or https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov is a free resource that is developed and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
PubMed comprises more than 27 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.
PubMed citations and abstracts include the fields of biomedicine and health, covering portions of the life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering.
Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites. This data base is searchable.
