Diabetes Studied With PEMF ElectroMagnetic Therapy


After my many years of medical practice, and more than 25 years of using magnetic therapies, I have seen truly life-altering and dramatic results from the use of PEMFs in diabetics. Not only do PEMF therapies help to condition all tissues to be as healthy as possible, especially as we get older, but they also accelerate the natural health recovery of diabetic tissues.

Since we can’t ever get rid of AGEs, all we can do is to make the tissues containing them be more healthy and resistant, and to recover and rebuild better long-term. This is exactly what PEMFs do. As I said, I have seen dramatic improvements in diabetics using PEMFs, when the usual options (including dramatic surgeries like amputations) were all that was considered. By changing diets and applying whole-body PEMFs, one of my own patients was reversed from having to have bilateral below-the-knee amputation of his legs.


The co-author of my book, Magnetic Therapy in Eastern Europe, showed me a case where a woman was recommended to have a foot amputated due to massive infection from neuropathy complications. After 3 months of daily magnetic therapy, using a moderately intense PEMF system, she was able to save her foot. The neuropathy in that treated foot actually improved as well. Interestingly, the other foot, which was not treated with PEMFs, had no improvement in the neuropathy. She should use PEMFs for the rest of her life to save her feet from further harm. 


I had a relative who had a very bad breakdown of the bones in his foot, due to infection and diabetic neuropathy. He had a foot wound that would not heal even after 2 years of care in a sophisticated wound care center. He was being recommended amputation when he began to use PEMF therapies. Within 3 months, he was discharged from the wound care facility he was in, was able to ambulate and had recovery of some sensation in his foot. Unfortunately, he would not consider a diet change. So all we can do for him is to maintain him where he is, and help him prevent getting into another disastrous situation. 


There is a large body of research on the use of PEMFs to reduce pain, improve circulation, improve wound healing, heal bone, improve arthritis, help liver function, improve pancreatic function, improve the cells to be able to better handle the use of circulating insulin (thereby reducing insulin resistance) and many other effects. So I am backed up not only by my own clinical experience with improving the health and prolonging the lives of diabetics by using PEMFs, but I’m also supported by an extensive body of magnetic field therapy research that demonstrates the effectiveness of PEMFs.

As a consequence, I believe that every prediabetic (with a hemoglobin A1c between 5.7 to 6.4) or diabetic (with a hemoglobin A1c above 6.4) should own and use DAILY a whole body PEMF system, to help prevent progression and heal the underlying damage across the whole body. DAILY use is critical. Going for treatments periodically to any kind of practitioner is going to provide less benefit than ongoing daily home use. Otherwise, individuals with local problems can add treatment with individual local PEMF systems to complement the whole body magnetic systems.


Our choices determine our outcomes. Because diabetes is a slowly progressive process and most people don’t see it coming, we don’t sound the alarm bell until a large amount of damage is already done in the body. Everybody, especially anybody who’s more than 20 pounds overweight, needs to consider getting a hemoglobin A1c level drawn by their doctor. If your A1c level is already in the prediabetic range, it’s likely to have been there for years.

Damage is being done to the body even in the prediabetic range. It is just very mild and will take years to show evidence of the damage. Clearly, if the A1c is above 6.4 then the level of damage being done is accelerating and it becomes even more urgent to be more aggressive in getting the A1c down and helping the body to be as healthy as possible. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, it is very challenging to get A1c levels back into the normal range, that is, under 5.7. This is why it’s even more important to add support to the body’s cells with PEMFs.

No matter what, dealing with the underlying cause of diabetes (for Type II diabetes, this is overuse of carbs) is more critical than any other therapies. Diet and supplements are an absolutely essential component of managing diabetes in general. PEMFs, like all other therapies, including medication and insulin, do not work well without controlling the diet. The sooner a patient begins to impact the blood sugar levels, the more effective the results of any other therapies will be. It’s always best to begin managing the problem during the prediabetic process than late in the diabetic process. The later a patient is in the progression of their diabetes, the harder it is to return to any kind of normality.

While I’m a strong believer in what PEMFs can do, I am an even stronger proponent of proper general health management. Adding PEMF therapies adds a much higher level of certainty of achieving positive outcomes from managing the diabetic condition.


  1. Pilla, A. A., Muehsam, D. J., Markov, M. S., & Sisken, B. F. (1999) This study focused on the potential effects of PEMF on diabetic polyneuropathy, a common complication of diabetes that affects the peripheral nerves. The results suggested that PEMF treatment might help alleviate some of the symptoms of diabetic polyneuropathy, such as pain, numbness, and tingling in the limbs.

  2. Goudarzi, I., Hajizadeh, S., Salmani, M. E., & Abrari, K. (2013) This study investigated the effects of PEMF on blood glucose levels and insulin resistance in a rat model of type 2 diabetes. The authors found that PEMF treatment improved glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity, and fasting blood glucose levels in the treated rats.

  3. Kwan, R. L., Wong, W. C., Yip, S. L., Chan, K. L., Zheng, Y. P., & Cheing, G. L. (2015) This randomized controlled trial evaluated the effects of PEMF on wound healing in patients with diabetes. The authors found that patients who received PEMF therapy experienced accelerated wound healing compared to the control group.
