Heat has long been used as an effective form of therapy. While the overall qualities of warmth are associated with comfort and relaxation, heat therapy goes a step further and can provide both pain relief and healing benefits for many types of lower back pain. Nowadays, heat therapy can be provided quickly and inexpensively – in the form of electric heating pads, which can be applied safely to the affected areas.
It is more than a superficial treatment to use a heating pad for back pain. However, this carries several potential risks. EMF radiation is one thing you should concern about when you’re considering purchasing an electric heating pad for pain and stress relief.
Do electric heating pads give off EMF radiation?
EMF stands for Electromagnetic Fields. It is an energy field that is emitted from any wire that has a current running through it. While this heating pad, when in operation, has a current running through its wires, every effort has been made in the design, development, and construction to reduce and minimize any EMF exposure.
Like other electrical household appliances like hair dryers, computers, coffeemakers, etc., heating pads can also generate electromagnetic fields (EMFs), invisible lines of force that surround electrical equipment, power cords, and power lines. This is because it takes a lot of power to produce heat. Also, heating pads are considered more dangerous because of how close they are to your body.
Does EMF cause health problems?
Is EMF radiation harmful to your health? Whether electric and magnetic fields are in any way related to the disease is a long-standing debate for which there isn’t any scientifically-conclusive answer.
For the past two decades, researchers have been investigating whether these EMFs can disrupt internal body control systems and increase the risk of cancer or weaken the immune system. So far, no studies have confirmed that EMFs increase the risk of cancer among adults. (Some studies have suggested a link between EMFs and childhood leukemia, but here evidence relates to the proximity of power lines, not household appliances.) The bad news is that the possibility of an EMF/cancer connection hasn’t been definitively ruled out.
Long-term exposure to electromagnetic radiation is believed to be more dangerous than short or even large bursts. This applies to both weak and strong sources of EMF exposure, but powerful sources are of greater concern.
Possible health problems associated with EMF radiation:
- sleep disorder
- loss of concentration
- memory loss
How to Block EMF from Heating Pads?
If you want to choose an electrical heating pad as your option for pain relief but are concerned about electromagnetic radiation, then this topic about how to reduce or block EMF from heating pads is really what you need.
Heating pads may be a source of EMF radiation that might be harmful to your health, but the truth is, they are just one of many sources in our homes. While we do have the option for many simple alternatives to electric heating pads, other sources of EMFs in your home are much more difficult to go without.
It is so necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones by reducing electromagnetic fields in your home, work, and on the go. Below are ways to reduce or block EMF from heating pads.
1. Try Low EMF Heating Pads
There are so many options of heating pads for you to choose from. So, it can be a bit difficult to choose the right low emf heating pads.
Generally speaking, low EMF heating pads use semi-precious stones such as amethyst, obsidian, turquoise, tourmaline, and jade stones as the heating elements. Aparting from shielding your body from electromagnetic radiation, those stone types used in low-emission mats also have positive properties.
PHYMAT Infrared Mat is a great example of a low EMF heating mat, which is filled with high-grade, untreated jade gemstones, jade stones, and crystals from edge to edge. When heated, those gemstones and crystals emit healthy negative ions that harmoniously neutralize the potentially dangerous positive ions emitted by EMFs.
What’s more, PHYMAT Infrared Heating Pads have an advanced EMF filtration system and heavy-duty aluminum foil EMF-blocking layers to protect your body from EMF exposure.
Below are Low-EMF Infrared Mats from PHYMAT:
A low EMF heating mat significantly reduces the amount of EMF radiation emitted by the device. However, keep in mind that all electrical devices still emit some levels of electromagnetic radiation, so be careful when companies claim that their devices have no emissions.
PHYMAT Amethyst or Tourmaline Infrared Mat is a convenient way to increase your exposure to negative ions while also addressing your pain. Negative ions are found in most natural outdoor environments such as mountain areas, lakes, beaches, oceans, and waterfalls. Once negative ions reach the cells in our bloodstream, it produces effective biochemical reactions helping to ease depression, boosting your immune system, efficiency, daytime energy, and boosting your defense against diseases or infection.
2. Connect your heating pad with an undergrounded power source
If you choose PHYMAT as your low-emf infrared heating pad, you don’t need to worry about EMF radiation. The EMF radiation can be almost zero if your power source has an underground cable. This result is the same for every type of infrared mat.
The EMF radiation is total zero if you connect the mat with the underground connect your power source has an underground cable.Proven result through EMF testing lab
As another provement, PHYMAT Infrared Heating Mat has been tested to comply with CE and FCC standards and it has been approved. You can check these certificates via: https://www.phymatlife.com/certificates/
