Depression: the main disability in the world

Are you or your loved ones struggling with anxiety or depression? Have you tried conventional treatment methods that aren’t helping? It is high time to consider Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Before we continue with the effect of PEMF therapy on anxiety and depression, let’s look at how the statistical reports on anxiety and depression paint a bleak picture.


According to the Centers for Disease Control, an increase in mental health problems such as anxiety and depression has been associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. From August 2020 to February 2021, the percentage of adults with anxiety and depression in the United States increased from 36.4% to 41.5%. The percentage of adults who did not receive mental health treatment increased from 9.2% to 11.7%.

According to a report by the American Depression and Anxiety Association, anxiety is the most common mental health disorder, affecting 40 million adults in the United States each year. Anxiety and depression are interrelated. People with anxiety are more likely to experience depression, and vice versa. Half of the people with depression were also diagnosed with anxiety.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that depression is a common disorder and one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Depression affects women more than men and can lead to suicide in both sexes.

What is Neuromodulation by Pulsed Magnetic Fields?

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy uses electromagnetic fields to modulate the activity of the patient’s neural processes. In this way, by controlling the activity (inhibition or excitation of specific circuits), it is possible to improve states such as depression or anxiety.

This therapy is very safe since it generates low frequency electromagnetic fields between 50 and 60 Hz and magnetic fields of up to 300 Gauss. The patient can be lying down and doing activities during the treatment.

Treatment results

“Better sleep means better health.” Addressing sleep problems has a big impact on anxiety and depression.

The therapy can mimic the natural rhythm of the resting brain and train it to follow that rhythm. Therefore, it can promote deep sleep.

It can address hormonal and chemical imbalances associated with anxiety and depression problems by going deep and directly into the brain.

The therapy affects glucose metabolism in regions of the brain linked to anxiety and depression. Furthermore, it can change neural networks and their electrical activities, altering the part of the brain that controls mood.

Scientific evidence

A 2010 research study reported that transcranial PEMF treatment was superior to placebo treatment in patients with treatment-resistant depression.

Additionally, a 2020 8-week study revealed that transcranial PEMF therapy may augment the antidepressant effects of ongoing drug therapy.

A 2014 study conducted at Harvard University showed that there was a significant improvement of more than 10% in patients with depression when they underwent PEMF therapy for 20 minutes.

In a 2013 clinical trial, applying PEMF therapy for 9 minutes caused changes in the EEG of the brain. Therefore, it can decrease the higher EEG frequencies seen in patients with anxiety.

A 2019 12-week clinical trial on PEMF can effectively treat anxiety, depression, pain, and quality of life with significant improvement compared to heat pack and TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation).

Portable Neuromodulation Equipment

Compared to all other conventional treatments, transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy is simple, safe, and effective. You should consider therapy if you or your loved ones are still suffering from depression or anxiety, especially if you found no improvement with previous treatments.

The use of transportable Neuromodulation equipment represents the opportunity for millions of patients to access this innovative form of treatment.
