Pulse Renewal -PEMF

PEMF = Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field

"This is a therapy that can change your life. I've witnessed both long-standing health problems such as painful arthritis and diabetic neuropathy, as well as acute conditions such as muscle strains and sinusitis get better with one treatment." Tom Ballard, ND


PEMF is a revolutionary approach to the treatment of multiple health problems, from acute body injury to chronic pain, memory, depression, heart disease, sinus, skin and nerve problems.

Sound too good to be true? That's what Dr. Oz thought until he investigated and broadcast a three-part series on this amazing treatment.

I'm not a doctor that jumps on every new technology. However, I was so impressed with PEMF at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in Bangkok in September 2012, that I bought one and am encouraging all my patients to try it. As Dr. Oz said in his show on PEMF, "It sounds like science fiction, but it's real."



"I've tried everything." and still not better? Give PEMF a try...

What is PEMF?

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field generator. Simply put, it uses electricity to generate a magnetic field that is pulsed into a patient for healing.  It has been found that this pulsed electromagnetic field achieves a number of desirable effects:

  • Increases circulation
  • Increases cell mitochondria (the power generators in cells)
  • Increases ATP (the main energy component of the body)
  • Increase the detoxification of cells (moving toxins out, nutrients in)
  • Increases stem-cell growth for rejuvenating tissues.

The net effect of these is that it has widespread application, since most disease states improve with more circulation, energy, detoxification, and newly-generated cells. It is basically exercise for individual cells and tissues.

Think skin, joints, organs, and connective tissue being helped, depending on how the therapy is applied. Thus you see problems such as the following may improve:

  • Bones, joint, muscles: arthritis, sprains, bursitis, osteoporosis, post-surgical wound healing, and jaw/tooth disease.
  • Skin and connective tissue: Diabetic ulcers, radiation and thermal burns, surgical incisions, muscle firming, reduction of wrinkles (recently FDA cleared for this)
  • Organs: Heart, lungs, liver, kidney, prostate, uterus, etc - improving function.
  • Brain: Memory, concentration, depression, Parkinson's, ADHD, and mental focus have all been seen to improve.

One way to think of PEMF is as an exercise machine, with the pulsing magnetic field "exercising" cells and tissues. Exercise also increases circulation, ATP, mitochondria, detoxification, and tissue repair.

What's a treatment like?

PEMF treatments are short, 6 to 30 minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated and the severity of the condition. Wear comfortable clothing, you'll only be asked to take off your shoes and not have a cell phone, credit cards or any electronic or magnetic items on your person.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments depends on the extent of injury, duration of injury, your overall health and co-treatments. 

I've seen shoulder injuries of long duration (2 years) recover 75% with one treatment. Generally it will take 3 to 12 treatments for most injuries to bone/muscle/joints. Sinus conditions sometimes clear with one treatment. A patient in Portland who was on the heart-transplant list recovered after a month of daily treatments. Healthy nutrition and detoxification therapies increase the effectiveness of PEMF.


In order to bring this important treatment to as many people as possible, I'm making every effort to keep the cost affordable. As a special introduction, until Feb, 2013 the price for this amazing treatment is $30

If you pre-pay for 5 sessions ($150) I give you one free treatment).

If you pre-pay for 10 sessions ($300), I give you three free treatments).

Depending on your condition, insurance company, and deductible, insurance may pay for all or a portion of your treatments. This is only available for established naturopathic patients of Dr. Ballard.

Patient Testimonials

Shoulder Pain

"I injured my shoulder when I fell off a ladder 10 years ago, and it has been really stiff and sore since. After using the PEMF-100 the first time, my shoulder loosened up more than it had since my injury, more than the numerous treatments of all kinds I had received over the years. As an added surprise my arm untwisted that night, and my elbow, which had been popping for years, stopped." - G. Berrett


"I had a bone density test done shortly after I purchased my PEMF 100. The results showed that I was at HIGH risk for bone fractures. My spine is osteoporosis and my hips are osteopenia which is the stage before osteoporosis. Five months later I had another bone density test. The results were amazing.....in 5 months.....no pharmaceutical drugs and doing nothing different than applying PEMF Therapy every other day.....I increased my bone density mass 20% in my spine and 4% in my hips! I LOVE my PEMF 100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -Michelle, Indiana.

Tinnitus, Ringing in Ear, Hand Tremor

"I can't believe the results that I have had with the PEMF-100!! My tinnitus has gone from a 10 to a 4 in one session. I have lived with ringing in my ears since I was 12 and at 54 I just thought that it was something I was going to have to live with for life. Every time I use the PEMF-100 it gets better so I do expect it to just go away. I got an extra bonus too. Just by holding the coil to work on my ears my hands are now almost "shake" free. I was shaking pretty bad when I started using the PEMF-100 and now they are pretty steady!!"- Thanks, Robert


"My name is Lee Ramage. I am a former professional motocross racer. There aren't too many sports that beat up and damage an athlete as badly as motocross racing. I am no exception. Five years ago I came up short on a double jump. I landed so hard that the foot pegs broke off my motorcycle. The impact forced my femur to crush the lower half of my knee called the tibia plateau, fracturing it in multiple places. 

The doctor that performed the surgery considered amputating my leg just below the knee. Thankfully he was able to save my leg with a superb reconstruction. Since the surgery I have been in pain on a daily basis, some days worse than others. I don't complain because I can walk without the assistance of a prosthesis. The injury did keep me from running or jumping so much of my life since has been limited. 

I was introduced to thePEMF-100 on December 6, 2008. As the science of the device was explained to me, and how I could become pain free from the therapy, I couldn't help but be skeptical. After all, an orthopedic surgeon couldn't make me pain free, how could this machine. I had nothing to lose so I tried it.After the first 12-minute session, I was in fact pain free! For the first time in 5 years I could run, sprint and jump without limitation. After approximately 2 hours I began to feel pain again; however it was still at least 50% better. The next day I received another 12-minute session. I became pain free immediately and this time it has been permanent. As I write this testimony it is 4 days later and still no pain. I have visited two therapists in the last couple days that know me and of my injury. Both saw me do one-legged squats on my injured leg and were amazed. Obviously, both want the PEMF-100

machine now. I highly recommend anyone with any type of ailment to seek out this machine."- Lee Ramage, former Professional Motocross Racer

MS/Nerve Damage

"I was diagnosed with MS in April of 2008 and a year after being diagnosed my feet started going numb.  I was told by my Neurologist I had nerve damage and basically there was nothing they could do.  After being in a car accident in February of 2010 I started coming to Dr. A. to help with my injuries.  It was then they started the Pulsed Magnetic Exercise on my back and within a week I could feel the top of my feet again. I am so excited with the outcome."-Mrs. Patch.

Lumbar Radiculopithy

"I was a registered trauma nurse for 10 years. Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with Lumbar Radiculopithy and I haven't worked since. I've been to too many doctors to count with no relief. I've been taking 75mg of OxyContin which barley gives me any relief. I'm depressed and tired of feeling the way I do. After just one fifteen minute treatment I was amazed to find relief for eight wonderful hours. I can't help to cry but you don't understand what it's like to have given up on hope, to have given up on the very doctor's you trust and have worked with for so many years and then to find something like this. It's like a gift from the angels!" - Lisa M., Melissa TX

Foot Numbness

I was diagnosed with MS in April of 2008 and a year after being diagnosed my feet started going numb. I was told by my Neurologist I had nerve damage and basically there was nothing they could do. After being in a car accident in February of 2010 I started coming to Dr. Unruh's office to help my injuries. They started Pulsed Magnetic Therapy treatments on my back and within a week I can feel the top of my feet again. I am so excited with the outcome - M. Patch, South Dakota.

Calf Pain

"I've had pain on my left calf for 15 months. I've seen three doctors with no relief. After six minutes my calf pain was gone. Wow this really works!" - Doug N., St. Petersburg, FL

Shoulder Pain/Range of Motion

I was introduced to the PEMF-100 after suffering a dislocated shoulder during a snowboarding accident.  Skeptical as I

am, I was not sure what to expect.  After only my first treatment, I noticed incredible results with my pain level as well as my range of motion.  I was so impressed with this... I introduced it to my wife who used it on her jaw with great results.  Since then, we have not only used it on ourselves, our friends and family members have tried it on some of our horses with amazing results.  During the 2007 PBR season, my good friend Justin McBride suffered a devastating injury to his should and was told his season was over.  I brought the machine to him to try and within a month, he was back riding his way to another PBR Championship." - Sid Steiner, 2002 National Finals Rodeo PRCA World Champion Steer Wrestler

Hip Replacement

"Seven years ago I was treated for cancer on me left hip. The aggressive treatment saved my life but destroyed my hip. I've now had three hip replacements in the last five years and live with constant pain and very limited range of motion. After 20 minutes I feel like I have both my legs supporting me and no pain. See here, I can stand on just my left leg. Something I haven't been able to do in more than seven years!" - Rodney V., Tyler, TX

Chronic Back Pain

"For the past 15 years not a day passed without me obsessing over my back pain. I can't tell you how many days I've missed work to stay home in bed. I've been laid up the past three days just this week. After my 20 minute treatment I felt so good that I went and played a round of golf!" - John J., Austin, TX

PEMF History

First a word on the history of electricity in medicine: 

As soon as electricity was first harnessed in the late 1800s experimentation started on its medical use. Much of this lead to dead ends (President Franklin Roosevelt is said to have tried a number of electrical devises for his polio without success). On the other hand, many have been successful. Think of ultrasound which is used both for diagnosing and treating disease, TENS for blocking pain, and microcurrent for stimulating nerves and raising serotonin levels. 

PEMF was first utilized in the 1950 to stimulate healing of broken bones. Gradually its use expanded to the healing of wounds and other injuries and it has gained considerable following with competitive horse owners who use it to heal horse injuries. In the 1970's it was cleared for use in urinary incontinence and muscle stimulation. It's also used by sports teams for quickly repairing injuries. The technology was slowed because it was very expensive, large, and unreliable. In the last 10 years these problems have been overcome. The units are now smaller, more affordable (although still relatively expensive) and reliable. In 2011 it was FDA cleared for depression.

It is used widely in Germany. 

This therapy has virtually no side effects and, only after excessive use, the detoxification process can yield some temporary flu-like symptoms.

This is a therapy that can change your life.
