Dr. William Pawluk, MD, MSc. is a board-certified family physician who has been intimately involved with magnetic therapies for more than 25 years, and who currently uses pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy in his own family practice. Dr. Pawluk regularly recommends the Medithera system to his patients as a cost-effective and gentle whole-body system.
He prefers the Medithera because of its clearly defined signal, which makes it safe even for those who are exquisitely chemically or electrically sensitive.
Dr. Pawluk has been involved with Body Fields, USA (the sole US importer for the Medithera System) for more than a decade, during which time he has relied on Body Fields to provide excellent, caring, and knowledgeable customer service for his patients who have a Medithera system, or who are interested in learning more about PEMF technology.
Body Fields’ relationship with Dr. Pawluk helps set us apart from the competition, who often times do not consult with practicing physicians for protocol advice and treatment suggestions.
A word from Dr. Pawluk:
“I am frequently asked how I became involved with magnetic therapies. Over 20 years ago, as a family physician, I became frustrated with the tools available to me to help people, particularly with chronic pain. Most the time the only treatment available other than physical therapy or procedures, was medication, mostly either painkillers, such as codeine and other narcotics, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen. Most painkillers are of course addictive and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary, especially for long-term use. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories unfortunately have a large risk of harm and damage to the kidneys, stomach and liver. The other alternative is acetaminophen, for example, Tylenol, which can be harmful to the liver. So, I began to look for alternatives outside the usual medical approaches.
The only one that was becoming available at the time was acupuncture. I began to look for ways of doing acupuncture that did not involve using needles. I discovered that magnets are commonly used in the Orient over acupuncture points. As I worked with magnets, I began to discover that there were many other possible uses for them, besides putting them on acupuncture points. There appeared to be a significant amount written about the use of magnets, but most of this happened to be in foreign languages. Magnets and been used extensively for decades in China, Korea, Japan and Europe. There was also a fairly significant basic science literature already about the use of magnetics. That meant we had a decent understanding from a science perspective how magnets work and also knew that there was extensive experience in other parts of the world.
As a result of this research and with the recent introduction in the United States of pulsed electromagnetic therapy (PEMF) devices from Europe by Bodyfields, USA, an importing and distribution company, I finally had access to similar devices described in foreign literature.”
