Can PEMF help with Pancreatitis?


If you’ve ever suffered from Pancreatitis, you know just how painful it can be. Some people describe it as feeling as if they had just eaten glass, because of how painful it is to eat anything. If you’re in this kind of pain, you would do anything if it would help you feel better and provide some relief. That’s why you should consider PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic therapy) to help with pancreatitis. If the PEMF used is strong enough to target the underlying tissues, it may help reduce the inflammation in the pancreas, which will then help relieve the pain you are feeling.

Pancreatitis is a condition in which the pancreas, an organ located behind the stomach that produces enzymes to aid in digestion and hormones to regulate blood sugar, becomes inflamed. This inflammation can cause severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever. One of the benefits of using PEMF therapy is that it can reduce inflammation. However, the majority of all PEMFs on the market today are incapable of targeting the pancreas because their magnetic waves are not strong enough to reach that far inside the body with the intensity needed to have an anti-inflammatory effect. You will need a stronger PEMF system for it to be affective. By stronger, we mean the strength of the magnetic field coming from the device. Most PEMF systems today produce a maximum intensity of 1 to 2 gauss (or 100-200 µT). The µT means microtesla. For comparison, the Earth’s magnetic field is typically between 25-65 microtesla.

The pancreas is located deep inside the abdominal cavity and its depth can vary depending on an individual’s body size, but we are talking about a part of the body that is at least a few inches inside the body. Ideally, you want at least 15 gauss of magnetic field strength in the pancreas to reduce inflammation. A 4,000 gauss magnetic field will deliver roughly 15 gauss approximately five inches into the body. FYI, there is no danger to having more more than 15 gauss.

Typical Treatment for Pancreatitis

Treatment for pancreatitis typically focuses on reducing inflammation and managing symptoms. For acute pancreatitis, this usually means:

  • Hospitalization for fluid and electrolyte replacement, pain management and observation
  • IV fluids and electrolytes to prevent dehydration
  • Nutritional support may be required through a tube through the nose (nasogastric tube) or directly into the small intestine (nasojejunal tube)
  • Pain management with medications such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or stronger pain medications
  • If the cause is gallstones, surgery may be needed to remove the gallbladder.
  • If the cause is alcohol, the patient should stop drinking alcohol.

PEMF Treatment for Pancreatitis

Technically, PEMF systems are not allowed to market themselves as being able to “treat” anything, this includes pancreatitis. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. I’ve personally seen multiple people get relief from their symptoms using a strong PEMF. Since PEMF can help give cells in the pancreas the electric charge they need, it will aid in the body’s amazing ability to heal itself. It can reduce the pain levels and can reduce inflammation in the pancreas. Since there are no side effects of PEMF, you should absolutely consider trying it to relieve your pancreatitis pain.

    Can the Tesla fit 2 help with pancreatitis? Would you use the mat, loop or paddle? How long would you need to use it per day-10, 20, 30 minutes, etc?
