Has anyone tried PEMF therapy for their Parkinson’s symptoms (or anything else for that matter)? I have had non Parkinson’s friends recommend it but haven’t talked to anyone who has PD yet. Any info, opinions would be welcome.

Hello @maggiemsy and welcome to Mayo Connect. I have spoken with anyone who has had this therapy but I did find some information on it on the NIH's website. Here is a link to that information, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4562205/#:~:text=PEMF%20therapy%20improves%20PD%20symptoms,session%20%5B161%E2%80%93163%5D.
If you are able to share more, how long ago were you diagnosed with PD? What other treatments have been tried (i.e, meds, physical therapy, etc.) What symptoms are most difficult for you right now?

Did my reply go through ? I think it may have disappeared before it should have.
I don't see your reply. Perhaps you need to send it again.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy – For Parkinson's patients. Has anyone used this with success?
Where could one get such therapy? Is it widely available? I have only been diagnosed since last May (2022) and my symptoms seem to be getting somewhat worse. I don't wish to take drugs, and have been trying to calm my tremor and anxiety with supplements. But it's getting to the point that I cannot work. I tutor English and my tremors are all in my right hand and leg. It's becoming scary.
I would check out the Bemer PEMF Therapy. I do know that an acquaintance of ours has one of the Bemer mats and it does work well for him and his particular issues. I agree about the drugs, unfortunately my husband started the drugs right away, and personally we do not believe that was the right choice to start with. But most doctors have only that to offer. We have researched DBS Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's which I believe works well for tremors. My husband seems to have almost everything else but Tremors. I pray you find some answers that will help you with your Parkinson's.
Thank you so much. I actually remember now reading about it in a book recently. It's called The Inflammation Nation by Sunil Pai. He has a clinic and is a big proponent of natural herbs as medicine, and he said he uses a bemer daily. Any idea of the ballpark price of such a thing?
You can go right to the Bemer.com website, but I believe the unit is $5000.00. Quite pricey! There are other units thru other manufacturers, which have a wide range of prices. I would research the different models and manufacturers. YES, inflammation is the root cause of many diseases. I believe you need to eat "clean" or as clean(organic) as possible.
Thank you so much for that info. I will see if there is something more affordable. It amazes me how much money one needs if one is ill. It's draining people's energy even more than they already are drained by the illness. Dastardly systems we humans have designed for ourselves.
