Finding the PEMF device that fits your needs

pemf featured

Choosing a PEMF pain relief device is not an easy decision.  There are many things to consider when comparing PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) devices.  How much will it cost? Does it address your needs? Will it fit your lifestyle?
Throughout the past two years I have shared how PEMF therapy with Oska Pulse has relieved most of my chronic pain, but how it has also addressed many other debilitating symptoms from my chronic illnesses.  Click here to read my progress from the beginning.  What you may not know is how PEMF therapy might benefit you.  I am including a plethora of third party reports detailing how PEMF therapy has been shown to improve specific diseases and symptoms.  Click here to access reports.  If that isn’t enough to convince you, you may want to check out PEMF – The Fifth Element of Health: Learn Why Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy Supercharges Your Health Like Nothing Else!

1. Oska Pulse

Instead of just blocking pain, Oska Pulse works at the cellular level to provide longer term pain relief, increase circulation, reduce inflammation and improve mobility.
Oska Pulse uses Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Technology to boost the body’s ability to repair injured cells. Oska Pulse does not need to be in direct contact with the skin to be effective and there is no tingling or sensitivity. 100% drug-free Oska Pulse is an FDA-registered alternative to opioids for the ongoing relief of back, knee, neck, joint, muscle and chronic pain. There are no known side effects and it cannot be overused. I run treatments anywhere between 4-10 hours a day, depending on my pain level and what symptoms I am addressing. Oska Pulse oscillates through a series of frequencies during its programmed 30-minute operation cycle. All frequencies are within the range of 1 -150Hz. The intensity of the PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) is approximately 0.9milliTesla, which is similar to the output of a television remote control.
Cons: Treatments only last 30 minutes. Device only has a 22 inch radius and works best within a 10 inch range, limiting the area of your body that is being treated at a time. Cannot treat shoulder and feet at the same time.
Pro:  The ten inch range can treat areas near the location you choose to treat. Click here to see demonstration. It comes with a strap to place device on your body so you can continue on with your life. I wear and run my device from the moment I wake up and until I go to bed. The device is portable and doesn’t have to be plugged in to use.  It can be used anywhere.  Oska Pulse is eligible for Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account reimbursement.  My discount code DIVA saves you $55 when you purchase via Oska Wellness’s site.

Tips For Treating Your Chronic Pain or Illness With PEMF Therapy on The Go and at Home

Tips For Treating Your Chronic Pain or Illness With PEMF Therapy on The Go and at Home

20170908_191034.jpg

This is a sponsored post.  Although I am an affiliate for Oska Wellness, all thoughts, views, opinions, and experiences are my own and were in no way influenced by the company. See full disclosure at the bottom of the article.

Do you know what I love most about treating my chronic pain and illnesses with PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) therapy, that is besides seeing daily improvements?  It’s being able to treat them at home and on the go.  That’s right! I am not spending hours per day, week, or month sitting in a doctors office, I am treating them at home, Disneyland, the beach, grocery store, and even at Dodgers Stadium!  Instead of using up my energy by having to go to the doctors, that energy is now spent doing what I want with the people I love.

While there are several portable PEMF devices available, my favorite is Oska Pulse.  The first reason is affordability.  Oska Pulse is the lowest priced unit that I have found in my research. The second reason I love my Oska Pulse is that it comes with a strap that makes it easy to treat the areas I need to no matter where I am at.

Here are some tips for treating specific pain areas while on the go or at home:

20170908_211842.jpg

1. Knee pain

With the handy strap that comes with Oska Pulse, I am able to address swelling, inflammation, and pain in my knees anytime and anywhere. The picture above was taken Friday evening at Dodgers Stadium.  After treating my conditions daily with PEMF therapy I was able to attend the game without using a mobility aid!!  That was the first time in over a decade that I have been able to go out like I used to!! I take my device everywhere I go because I never know when my knee will decide to act up.  Climbing three staircases is what angered my knee on this evening.  Instead of worrying if I would be able to walk back to the car or even to the restroom, I strapped my device under my knee and was good to go after a few treatments.  Best part was getting to laugh with friends and watch the game all while treating my knee.  When it comes to knee pain, where I place it depends on where I feel the most swelling.  Sometimes I place it above and other times under.

2. Neck pain

Once again that handy dandy strap comes into play.  I either strap it to a neck pillow, wear the strap like a sash or wrap it around the back of my chair.  Click here for more tips on using Oska Pulse for neck pain.  It doesn’t matter if I am in the car, pushing a shopping cart, or having my picture taken with Mickey Mouse, I am able to treat my neck anywhere!

3. Lower back, abdomen and pelvic pain, and hips

Oska Pulse works within a 22 inch radius.  Click here to see a demonstration.  This makes it possible to treat all of these areas at the same time.  Trust me I was blown away the day I realized that while I was focusing my treatment on my abdominal adhesions by placing it around my waist, it was also treating my hips, pelvis, and lower back.  The strap makes it easy for me to move the device to the area that is bothering me the most whether I am watching a parade at Disneyland or dusting off the fireplace mantel at home.  Don’t want to wear it?  Place the device in your purse or pocket, the treatment will remain the same.  Click here for more tips on treating lower back pain with Oska Pulse.

No matter what area of your body or condition you are seeking to treat with PEMF it important to keep two things in mind.  First, you must commit to using it daily.  Once a day is not enough.  It is recommended to begin your daily treatments with a minimum of 10 treatments per day.  This is easy since you don’t have to stop living in order to treat your conditions.  Each treatment lasts 30 minutes.  If you find yourself forgetting to turn the device back on, I recommend setting a timer on your phone to remind yourself.  The second thing you must remember is that Rome wasn’t built in a day, so don’t expect to feel better after one treatment or even one full day of treatment.  You must be patient.  While I experienced immediate results in regards to my abdominal adhesions, it took over two months before I noticed a significant difference with my lower back pain from degenerative disc disease and psoriatic arthritis. Results vary depending upon how often you use it and if you are addressing your pain points.  I run my device all day, every day and move it around to focus on each of my pain points.

Want more information?  Join my closed Facebook group The Disabled Diva’s Alternative Pain Fighting Forum.  There you will discover how it helps not just me, but others too!  In addition I have files for you to peruse about all the different conditions, illnesses, pains, and symptoms that PEMF therapy has been proven to be effective with.  In addition to my group, I have also been documenting my therapy and progress on my blog.  Click here to read from the beginning.  New updates will be added soon as I am nearing my six month Oska Pulse anniversary!!!

PEMF therapy, giving hope when doctors said there was none to be

Welcome to my newest series “My Oska Pulse Journey”.  If you have been following my blog you know that I have been using my Oska Pulse to alleviate knee and muscle pain.  For those who are new to my blog I invite you to read “How my Oska Pulse has improved my life”.  Click here for more information about my abdominal saga to understand what I am dealing with.  Before I begin I want to disclose that while I originally received my Oska Pulse to review from Chronic Illness Bloggers, my thoughts and opinions are my own and have not and never will be influenced by the product’s company.  All posts that I have written about this product since the original were not solicited and were written because I wanted to share my experience and improvements.  As always my posts are not to be mistaken for medical advice.  I am only sharing my opinions and experience. 
Last year one doctor after another told me that there was nothing they could do about my abdominal pain that is caused from adhesions due to endometriosis and surgical scarring.  Out of all of my conditions this was the hardest to accept as nothing decreased my discomfort.  Medical marijuana has been successful in improving my symptoms from psoriatic arthritis and fibromyalgia, but would only reduce my nausea in regards to my abdominal issues.  After experiencing a brief time of relief from my abdominal pain it returned with a vengeance a couple of weeks ago.  Besides physical discomfort I struggled emotionally over not knowing how long it would be until I would catch another break.  To my surprise, a glimmer of hope presented itself last Friday.

I awoke Friday morning with a bloated belly, an elevated pain level, and a message from Julie Ryan.  While we were chatting she shared some information about her experience with Oska Pulse and the remarkable results she experienced while healing from her last endo related surgery. Hearing about her successful recovery my heart filled with joy.  Because I have had eight abdominal surgeries, surgeons won’t touch me unless I am presenting life ending symptoms, so surgery will never be an option for me.  If my Oska Pulse could breakdown adhesions without ripping them from my sidewall or internal organs, my physical life would greatly improve. 
After our conversation I began treating my belly with my Oska Pulse.  I treated it for six hours on Friday.  The next morning I was no longer bloated or nauseated.  On Saturday I treated my tummy for another six hours.  I wasn’t expecting to see significant results quickly and was astonished when I did.  That evening I noticed that my outer abdominal muscles were tender and sore when touched.  You may be thinking “How is that good news?”  But if you knew how my abdominal pain cycle worked you would know that this was outstanding news.  You see, my adhesions typically form from sidewalls and then attach themselves to my bowels, bladder, and ribcage.  They pull and twist whatever it is that they have a hold of until they rip away.  When they rip from my sidewall the pain is so intense that it literally takes my breath away.  Adhesions make sitting upright or standing straight difficult and painful whether they are ripping or not, but doing anything while they are ripping away from my sidewall is impossible.  After an intense ripping, I experience what I like to call the “healing phase”.  During this phase my abdominal muscles are sore, sort of like after surgery pain, and sometimes the internal organ that was being attacked also hurts.  The upside is that I would be blessed with a reprieve from the unbearable ripping pain.  That evening it was only my external abdominal muscles that hurt!
 I have been living with abdominal pain caused by adhesions since 2004, I know the cycle of formation, chaos, ripping, and healing extremely well.  The pain that I had on Saturday was what I normally experience several days after a ripping.  This signals that something good is happening.  I have no way to tell how many adhesions I have or how many have been broken apart because they don’t show up in medical tests.  What I do have is the experience of thirteen years of living with these dreaded internal webs.  By Sunday I could feel specific areas that were experiencing pulling and began placing my Oska Pulse on them.  I was also able to eat without severe bloating.  In addition I ate a bunch of different foods that I had fully expected to give me diarrhea, since up until Saturday everything I ate went right through me.  I was thrilled to not spend the evening on the toilet and even more ecstatic when I experienced a normal bowel movement the next morning and it has continued for three days!  I can’t tell you how long it has been since this has happened.   Like I said something good is happening inside of my belly.  I can’t wait to see how long I will be blessed with normal bowel movements and zero digestive issues.
In addition to helping with my abdominal pain my Oska Pulse has also proven to be an effective treatment in regards to the permanent nerve damage between my pelvis and left leg caused by a surgeon who severed nerves while removing my cervix in 2008.  Three of the top neurologists in Arizona (where I was living at the time) all said that the set of nerves that were damaged were ones that aren’t typically nicked or severed. They also agreed that there was nothing that could be done.  They tried different medications to reduce my nerve pain, but instead they increased my pain.  In 2013 I began treating all of my conditions including this one with medical marijuana.  For the most part an Indica strain reduces or eliminates most of my nerve pain.  However, sometimes the pain from the source of the damage skyrockets to a level that makes me wish I could saw off my leg.  When this happens I usually use a Sativa strain of medical marijuana.  I avoid using Sativa as much as possible because while it reduces my deep internal nerve pain it also makes my mind race.  Like my issues with adhesions, I felt like there was no hope.  After experiencing a remarkable difference with my abdominal pain, I decided to try treating the area of my nerve damage with my Oska Pulse.  After just an hour on Saturday night the pain subsided. 
The reason I am starting this series is to document how and if Oska Pulse is able to improve my conditions that my doctors have given up on.  My hope is that it will either prevent new adhesions from forming or break them down if they do.  I am also curious to see if it will go beyond temporarily relieving extreme nerve pain and eventually repair the internal site of damage.  In addition I have also begun treating my sacrum and have been impressed by the relief I have been experiencing.  I invite you to join me on this journey. My intent is to share my progress and provide more information about how this product works.  If you are also using Oska Pulse as part of your treatment I would love to hear what symptoms and conditions it has helped with.  For those of you who are interested in trying Oska Pulse be sure to use promo code DIVA to save $55.  You can try it risk free with Oska’s 30 day money back guarantee.
