Epilepsy Studied With PEMF ElectroMagnetic Therapy

This article reports on the cases of three patients with partial seizures who received treatment with external artificial magnetic fields of low intensity. Such treatment led to a significant attenuation of seizure frequency over a 10-14- month period.

Neurosci, 60(3-4), October 1991, . 141-171.

Experimental results indicated that the administration of modulated electromagnetic fields of 2-30
Hz suppressed epilepsy in rats.

This review article cites one study in particular in which results showed that pretreatment with 30
minutes of exposure to a 75-mT-pole strength, DC-powered magnetic field significantly prevented
experimentally induced seizures in mice.

This article reports on the case of a severe epileptic who experienced a significant lessening of behavior disturbances and seizure frequency following treatment with low frequency, external artificial magnetic fields.

Low frequency, external artificial magnetic field treatment was shown to significantly reduce
seizures in four adult epileptic cases.
