PEMF Studies

PEMF Therapy for Asthma

  • Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that affects millions of people worldwide, characterized by episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. These symptoms are due to the inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to significant discomfort and, in severe cases, life-threatening asthma attacks. While asthma cannot be cured, effective management is crucial for maintaining quality of life.

  • In this context, PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy for Asthma emerges as an innovative, non-invasive treatment option. By utilizing electromagnetic fields to promote healing and reduce inflammation, PEMF therapy offers a novel approach to managing asthma symptoms, supporting overall respiratory health.


  • The exact cause of asthma is not fully understood, but it is known to result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Triggers such as allergens, air pollution, respiratory infections, and physical activity can provoke asthma symptoms. The inflammatory response in the airways leads to swelling and mucus production, which narrows the air passages and restricts airflow. Managing these triggers and the inflammatory process is essential for reducing asthma flare-ups and controlling the condition.

How PEMF Therapy Can Help

  • PEMF Therapy presents a potential complementary treatment for asthma by targeting the inflammation that contributes to the constriction of airways and respiratory distress. By delivering low-level electromagnetic fields into the body, PEMF therapy may help modulate the inflammatory response, promoting a reduction in airway inflammation and potentially easing breathing difficulties.

  • Furthermore, the therapy can enhance cellular function and repair, supporting the body's natural healing processes. While more research is needed to fully understand PEMF therapy's effects on asthma, preliminary studies and anecdotal evidence suggest its utility in improving respiratory function and symptom management. For individuals seeking alternative or supplementary treatments for asthma, PEMF therapy could offer a promising avenue for relief.

  • Ganesan, K., Gengadharan, A. C., Balachandran, C., Manohar, B. M., & Puvanakrishnan, R. (2004) This study investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of PEMF in a rat model of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The results demonstrated that PEMF treatment reduced lung inflammation and improved lung function. Although this study was not focused on asthma, the anti-inflammatory effects of PEMF could potentially be beneficial for asthma patients.

  • Vincenzi, F., Ravani, A., Pasquini, S., Merighi, S., Gessi, S., Setti, S., Cadossi, M., & Borea, P. A. (2013) This study examined the effects of PEMF on the production of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The authors found that PEMF modulated the production of specific cytokines, suggesting that PEMF therapy might have immunomodulatory properties that could potentially benefit asthma patients.
