How Something Called Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy Can Make You Sleep Like A Baby (And Do Much More Than That).

My wife makes fun of me.
She calls me a “sleep princess”.
This is probably because I’ve been really geeking out on how to sleep better. After all, it’s during sleep that we experience a significant amount of repair, recovery, immune system enhancement, cognition, learning and memory capability, gene regulation, appetite regulation, hormone production and cellular turnover.
And that means lack of sleep can leave you sore, unsexy and stupid. So I’ve been prioritizing sleep (and especially deep sleep) quite a bit.
At this point in the night, I’ve also been ensuring I don’t shut down melatonin release from artificial light exposure by wearing blue light blocking Gunnar glasses for any afternoon or early evening computer use, and when I actually do get into bed, I slip into my Dream Essentials contoured face mask and fitted ear plugs.
Next, I turn on the White Noise app on my iPhone to block out the sound of the train that goes by our house and the dogs barking in the morning (although I use the PZizz iPhone app for quick afternoon naps).
Finally, underneath the mattress is a new toy I’ve been using – a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) device for enhancing deep sleep cycles – the EarthPulse Sleep Machine.
How exactly does PEMF work to get me to sleep better?
