Magnetic Therapy for Tinnitus: PEMF / RTMS Research

Magnetic therapy for Tinnitus research uses pulsed electromagnetic fields or PEMF, via very strong, head-centric, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation or rTMS. PEMF for Tinnitus research increased exponentially in 2015. Most of these rTMS Tinnitus studies show nice range of improvement through a good-majority of tinnitus study participants.

PEMF rTMS tinnitus

rTMS remarkably (sic) uses frequencies nearly always at 10 Hz or less. This is beneficial trait, though it is not a credit to the designers. Because, it would be technically impossible to pulse a magnetic field faster and maintain their high Tesla ratings (without much larger capacitors), in an effort to keep the rTMS systems and coils of a more manageable size while not overheating the coils unduly fast, they’ve limited their frequency output to 20 Hz or below. Thus, most rTMS studies of all types seem to be down at between 1 Hz known as slow rTMS and 10 Hz commonly known as fast rTMS. With some rTMS studies venturing as high as 20 Hz.

While motor threshold varies from person to person, these systems can nearly always be set at some point ABOVE motor threshold. Once these massive-pulse systems get up at around 5 – 10 Hz (beats per second), the maximum – peak amplitude would drop quite a bit making supra-motor-threshold pulses impossible.

Based upon client feedback (with a coil at 20 times less magnetic field amplitude than rTMS) and these rTMS peer-reviewed studies for comparison, repetitive long term use of Our™ PEMF over weeks and months should in fact turn down the volume in most tinnitus sufferers. If not simply return your system for full refund.

In our experience, Pulsed electromagnetic fields at these far lower amplitudes than rTMS, over longer duration can in fact get better effects than rTMS can in just about any situation. rTMS can never do for some issues what Our™ PEMF can due to rTMS’ head-centricity.

Tip: It has also been reported that Lecithin as a dietary supplement shows promise for tinnitus (it’s made from soy bean, so make sure you find NON GMO / or better yet get Lecithin from non-GMO corn).

We can’t guarantee a thing, only that if you are not satisfied with Our™ PEMF for any reason, just return it in 90-days.
