IMPORTANT READER NOTE – Unfortunately due to a bad personal experience with the EarthPulse company, I no longer feel comfortable recommending their product. I am currently in the process of trailing the DeltaSleeper SR1 PEMF device designed and built specifically to help people overcome sleep disorders and also to simply improve sleep in general. It's also certified safe by UL and cleared by the FDA, which is not the case for the EarthPulse device to my knowledge. You can view the full review of that PEMF device here.

I will be doing an “unboxing video”, a video walk-through of how the device operates, and of course a full written review on this product very soon, and be tracking how it helps my sleep, so look out for that here on my website. Until then, you can check out the product specs for the DeltaSleeper here.

Apart from that, for now you can refer to all the options here on this introduction into pemf devices for sale for sleep and healing of all kinds – the linked page is currently a work in progress, please leave any comments about things you would like more information on regarding PEMF options, and I'll do my best to update the site to make it more helpful, as that's my main goal here)

Like I was not too long ago, you're probably searching for information online about the EarthPulse, and thinking it's yet another scammy product, but you'll do just a little more research on it before you write it off…

You might be looking to use the EarthPulse PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) device as a sleep machine, if you're experiencing insomnia like I was, or just not happy with your sleep. Otherwise, you might be looking into the EarthPulse because of it's supposed healing properties for physical pain issues. Here I share with you my stories about how it worked out for me, for helping with both of those uses.

By the way, as you may know by now there are several versions of the EarthPulse V5. My experience with the device, and the following review is based on this version (this exact model, specs and available modes).

Getting An EarthPulse As A Cheap Means To PEMF Therapy

When I first found out about the EarthPulse, it was the first I'd heard of anything like it, and it got me very interested in the whole field of PEMF therapy, and I did a lot more research on all that was involved. At the time I was going through a NIGHTMARE CASE OF INSOMNIA, and I was really suffering badly. It was making my life a living nightmare, and I felt like an overworked extra for the popular apocalyptic zombie TV show, The Walking Dead.

walking dead lack of sleep

I knew that PEMF for sleep sounded too good to be true, and I could tell that the EarthPulse had some really clever marketing going on via the sales page (website homepage, etc) but I was just so desperate at the time, that I was pretty willing to try anything, and had already tried a lot of different stuff (as I write this, I'm tempted to replace the word “stuff” with the word, c##p).

(This was basically how I felt for about 3+ months during the worst of my insomnia, quite disturbing…)

That being said, I wasn't ready to just jump in and spend my hard earned savings on another supposed insomnia cure, so I went ahead and began researching much more seriously on the whole topic of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, and the available devices which allowed private use of this interesting technology.

I came across some great resources, and it made me realize that one of the biggest limiting factors as a consumer looking to buy a PEMF machine for trying to improve my sleep, was undoubtedly going to be the cost. The Earthpulse “sleep on command” was obviously at the very lower end of the marketplace when it came to buying a PEMF device, and that was a factor that I was pretty wary of in all honesty.

Having said that, I'd tried “do it yourself PEMF” briefly in the past (wiring up a coil to my MP3 player, and downloading something similar to a binaural beats track) and it didn't work for me, and didn't really appeal (I consider myself fairly “techie” but that was just way too nerdy for me, and I didn't get any results with it either). In retrospect, I think the main problem with that method was the lack of a decent magnet setup, and the fact that you have an extremely limited, if any control over the pulse frequency or power settings of the PEMF you're creating. 

So compared to such things as DIY PEMF, the Earthpulse sleep on command looked really good, and although not being the most expensive PEMF device on the market, in fact far from it, I could still see that it had enough features, and a powerful enough magnet to do the trick for me when it came to my insomnia issue. So at this point, I wasn't sold, but I hadn't quite written it off yet either.

Buyer Beware! My Concerns About Buying An EarthPulse PEMF Machine
earthtpulse sleep on command review

The ProBasic Version, more on the version types and differences is written below

As I mentioned earlier, I was VERY skeptical about purchasing an EarthPulse Sleep On Command with my hard earned cash, and I really did mull it over considerably before finally just saying “what the heck”, and going for it.

My main concern was not that it simply wouldn't work, but that it would actually make my sleep somehow worse
, and potentially screw me up even more than I felt I already was at that point (which would not have been pretty). I was assured after conversing with the support staff at sleep-tech.com (EarthPulse's ecommerce site where you actually order your device) that this was something that I need NOT worry about. They also referred me to the hundreds of studies that have been done regarding the use of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, and the high success rate in those various studies. Click to a see a PubMed.gov* search engine listing of over 600 published scientific papers on pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.

Honestly at this point, I felt so crappy, and out of  my mind anxious, both anxious because I hadn't been sleeping, and at the prospect of not getting any good sleep ever again (sounds crazy, but often you will have, and believe some weird thoughts when you're in an unhealthy state from lack of enough good quality sleep, as you may have experienced yourself). I decided that with the 90 day money back policy available with the purchase of the EarthPulse sleep machine, that at this point I really had nothing to lose. I truly believed that I couldn't really feel any worse than what I was already feeling, and my sleep couldn't be less existent.

EarthPulse Sleep On Command Pros Vs Cons

As I mentioned, the EarthPulse is not perfect, it does have it's positives and negatives, as you might expect. Question is, when you weigh these up against each other, does it leave the Earthpulse sleep machine in a suitable position to be a good choice for your needs? Let's take a look at what it does well, and what it doesn't do so well.

Common FAQs About The Earthpulse sleep machine and PEMF Devices

How Much Is The EarthPulse?

In Answering this question, I need to make it clear that there are currently 5 different versions of the EarthPulse v5 (I know, confusing right?). So here are the different versions, along with their pricing as per the manufacturer's website: 

(NOTE: Click on the link left hand side to view full specifications for each Earthpulse version)

EarthPulse v5 Basic     – $499 USD (Manual Mode Only – 1 x 1100 Gauss Magnet)
EarthPulse v5                – $699 USD (Manual + 10 Preset Modes – 1 x 1100 Gauss Magnet)
EarthPulse ProBasic    – $899 USD (Manual Mode Only – 2 x 1100 Gauss Magnets)
EarthPulse v5 Pro         – $1199 USD (Manual + 10 Preset Modes – 2 x 1100 Gauss Magnets)
EarthPulse v5 Equine   – $1499 – $1799 USD (Options of Manual OR Presets, 4 x 750 Gauss Magnets) 

What Different Versions Are There?

As mentioned and listed above, there are 5 Versions of the EarthPulse at the moment. I chose the EarthPulse “v5” because it is the cheapest version that has both the manual mode and the preset modes, which allows me to play around with the power of PEMF, and is great not just for the ability to help me sleep, but I can experiment with things like improving my dream ability by setting it to stay more in the theta brain wave state more of the time.

Having the preset modes with the v5 version of the EarthPulse is good too, because they are all modes created based on thorough research regarding how different frequency patterns have different health affects on the brain and body.

The power of Earthpulse manual mode and the presets together is worth the extra $200 in my books, but this will depend on what you plan on using it for, and how experimental you want to be able to get with the device. For users who want to try a more basic “set and forget” approach,  you'll probably want to have the presets included, so the v5 is a good choice. If you want the 2 magnets without having to potentially upgrade later, then you'll want to get the ProBasic at a minimum.

Which Version Of EarthPulse Should I Choose?

Of course this will really depend on what you are trying to get out of the use of your PEMF device. If you're someone who can only afford the bare minimum, but wants the benefits of PEMF for sleep, then the v5 Basic might just be enough for you. If you want a little more choice and flexibility like I did, then the ProBasic or above will be a good choice. 

If you're going for an Earthpulse sleep on command as an introduction to PEMF, but you are serious about really getting the most out of PEMF, and you were actually going to spend much more on one of the higher end PEMF devices initially, before you came across the EarthPulse, then you might want to go with the v5 Pro, or even the Equine, to get those 4 magnets.

For me personally, I reasoned that if was going to spend $500, I thought I may as well spend a little more to get the preset modes AND the manual mode. I liked knowing that I could use the preset modes easily, and have the added power of a programmed mode that goes up and down through the various frequency ranges, and doesn't just stay at one frequency the whole time (as I think is the case with the manual mode).

Where Do I Put My EarthPulse?

This will depend on what you are trying to do with it. If you are using it for sleep, then check out my instructional example guide below (with pictures). If you are using it for tissue healing, etc, then you will want to actually be more specific with where you place the magnet, and be putting it in close vicinity, if not directly under or on top of the area of damaged muscle or tissue.

How Do I Use It?

Again, this will depend very much on your goal and what you're doing with the device. My instructional walk through below is a great simple guide, showing how I personally use it for sleep. Bare in mind also, there is a lot of information in the EarthPulse Manual that you will get with the product.

How Long Does It Take To Help My Sleep?

According to Paul Becker (the inventor of the EarthPulse and company Director), who emailed me directly to answer my question about this specific issue, it will take anywhere from a couple of weeks, to a month or more, depending on the severity of your sleep issues.

If you're dealing with chronic insomnia like I was, that had been going on for more than 6 months to some degree, then it's probably going to take at least a few weeks. Your body needs to adjust and “sync up with” or entrain to the magnetic frequencies, and then it will start to positively respond by relaxing more, and sleeping more easily with the EarthPulse device running under your mattress.

Does It Come With A Battery?

No, it doesn't come included with a battery, but it is possible to get one separately. More information will be posted here shortly on this specific question.

Is It Possibly To Upgrade My Device If I want More Power Later?

Yes, this is something that's possible to a degree. You can upgrade to get an extra magnet (Double magnet upgrade kit), which means you'll be taking the capability of your system up, and having the extra power and added functionality of 2 magnets instead of 1. The cost of the upgrade kit at the time of writing is $299 USD.

Does The EarthPulse Use A SoundWave?

Technically no, the EarthPulse like other PEMF based devices is using pulsed electromagnetic field. This is a bit different from a sound wave from my understanding. With this level of technicality, I would suggest you have a look at the research posted on the Earthpulse website here.

What Does The EarthPulse Magnet Look Like?

Here's a good image from the main website showing you the different parts that make up the overall EarthPulse magnet. Depending on how you have the magnet setup, you will get varying levels of power and therefore a stronger or weaker affect on your body and brain.

Generally speaking, EarthPulse customer support seem to advise testing first using the RECOVERY MODE, and then seeing how you respond to that. If you start dozing off during the initial test, then that's a good sign that you will sleep well using that particular mode of the EarthPulse PEMF system.

Here's the image that shows the different parts of the magnet setup:

earthpulse-magnet-setup

So the magnet fully setup with all pieces emits the most power or Gauss, and for most people you won't want to use it at full power right away, but work up to that if needed over time. It really depends on your reason for using it though, as with physical pain, it can be more effective to have it at a higher power to help with muscle healing.

Is There A Refund/Return Policy If I Buy One?

Absolutely, and this was the main reason that I was happy enough to throw caution to the wind, and just go ahead and order the device to try it out. It comes with a 90 day trial period, money back if you're not happy guarantee. Once I had done enough research and was over my initial fear that it would somehow make things worse, there really wasn't much to lose. As I mentioned previously, I was really suffering at the time, and if this PEMF device could even potentially help me sleep just a little bit better, then I was willing to take the risk.

Also another point which helped sway me, although I couldn't be 100% sure it was true, was that the customer service representative who was helping answer a few of my questions via email before I made my decision, had told me that in the past 2 years since she'd been working with the company she had seen only 2 of the units returned.

Out of those 2 units, the circumstances where both apparently pretty unusual as well – one of the customers was just extremely difficult to please, and claimed EarthPulse had made false promises that they hadn't, and that were never published on their website. The other return, if I can remember correctly had been a customer that was almost able to come off her dose of ambien completely, despite previously being on the drug for several years, but was still for some reason unsatisfied with the results of using the EarthPulse. Now obviously I wasn't going to make my decision solely based on some stories such as these, which I had no way of validating, but the low refund statistics if they were true sounded good.

My Reason For Getting An EarthPulse – My PEMF Sleep Therapy  Story

As I mentioned, the main reason that I even started looking into buying an EarthPulse PEMF device, was because I was going through a period of extremely bad insomnia. I had tried all the usual “Sleep Hygiene” stuff, and it really didn't make any difference.

See, I was dealing with a pretty high amount of stress and strain at the time, and to be honest was actually dealing with a state of hyperarousal from all that I'd been through in my life at that point. I was messed up bad, and the common sleep advice stuff just wasn't going to help me.

I'd given it all a good shot, including; essential oils like lavender and peppermint oil, removing all electronic devices from my bedroom, and making it a “sleep and sex” only zone, having hot baths before retiring for the night, getting to bed at a regular time, and getting up at a regular time everyday. I'd tried pretty much everything that you read on your generic sleep advice webpage. I'm sure those things do help some people, depending on the level of your sleep issues, but I needed something much “stronger”, so to speak.

I came across the EarthPulse somehow online, and I was very intrigued by the idea that magnetic brain wave entrainment, could help with sleep. I'd actually already tried binaural beats in the past for meditation (the audio kind), and more recently had attempted to use them for helping me sleep as well, but they had actually made things worse in this case However, I read up on the science behind PEMF therapy for insomnia, and it seemed like it had a very good track record, and some legitimate published scientific studies behind it. Before deciding to jump ahead with the EarthPulse, I even tried the DIY PEMF device I mentioned earlier, but I personally found it to be a waste of time, as it did nothing for me.

How To Actually Use It – My Easy EarthPulse Sleep Machine Instructions

Okay, so I received my EarthPulse around 4 months ago as I write this, and since that time I've done a bit of playing around with the different frequencies and whatnot, to see how they affect my sleep differently. It's quite interesting, I do notice differences in the depth of my sleep, my dream experiences, etc, depending on the frequency range that I set the device to.

When I first got it, after emailing back and forth with the customer support, and telling them a little of my situation, and my specific sleep problems so far, I was advised to use the “Sleep 3” setting, and in order to get back to sleep during the night, if I woke (which was my main issue, not falling asleep to begin with) then I was told to use the “Sleep 4” setting. However, after trying this out for several nights, I found that sleep 4 actually was better at getting me to sleep, including getting me back to sleep during the early hours, at least at that point in time (2-4 weeks after initially getting the device).

Since then, I've kept on playing around with it, and I've found that the recommended frequency, that you should be working towards after some time using the device (Recover Mode) is great for me when I want to just take a quick lie down, power nap, etc. It's not great for sleep for me personally though.

At the moment of writing this, I find that using the EarthPulse Manual Mode, and setting it to 7.8 Hz at around 50-70% power strength is a pretty reliable way for me to get a good deep sleep. Sleep 3 also works well sometimes, but doesn't seem quite as good at getting me back to sleep. I think this is because when I use the manual frequency and set it to 7.8 Hz, it stays at that frequency, which means it's not going up and down, as it is for the preset patterns like Sleep 3. 

I still have some experimenting to do, but my sleep generally seems to be steadily improving as time goes on. Sure I still occasionally find it hard to get back to sleep, but that's getting to be a less frequent occurrence the more I use the PEMF device.

In this below section, I will show you in extremely simple terms, and with images provided, how I am setting up the Earth Pulse right now, and how it looks when it's setup.

Scroll down to see the images associated with each step.

  • First of all, this is what the EarthPulse machine (v5 version) looks like, placed on my floor, ready to go under  my bed powered on (I also cover the screen up with a drink coaster, as the blue flashing light is somewhat bright for a device that's supposed to help you sleep – not a big hurdle though).

earthpulse instructions1

  • As you can see, the magnet is setup so that it's under the area of the bed head roughly. You want it within a foot or so of where your head will actually be resting when you are going off to sleep (at least at the start of your “EarthPulse training” so that your system entrains to it – later on you can be more flexible with the magnet positioning)

earthpulse instructions2

  • In the next image I've just pressed the On/Off button to turn the device on. It automatically boots to be on “Recover Mode”, which is the ideal recommended sleep mode, and I find it great for mini breaks, power naps, etc. You can use whatever works for you at the start.

earthpulse instructions3

  • Not much to say on this one, just wanted to show you a little closer what it looks like on first booting the device.

earthpulse instructions4

  • I then choose Manual Mode by scrolling across using the Up or Down arrow buttons, and pressing Select/Start to make my choice and move to the next step.

earthpulse instructions5

  • I then choose how long I want to set the device for to send it's beautiful, magical healing electromagnetic waves, and help me sleep. I still need to clarify whether in manual mode it gradually brings me back up to waking state as it approaches 0 minutes on the timer (I'll update this page when I know for certain).

earthpulse instructions7

  • Then I get the option to choose my Manual frequency setting. As mentioned, I'm having great success running the device at a frequency of 7.8 Hz, which is about 2 Hz down from the Recover Mode which is 9.6 Hz.

earthpulse instructions6

  • The controller computer is now running (shown by the blue flashing light on the right), and sending the signals to the magnetic part of device. (By the way, you can test that the device's magnet is working correctly, by taking apart the rings, and feeling the magnet pull on itself when turned on) This is also the stage where I choose how much amplitude I want the device to use – as I said above, I've been having good success with it running on somewhere between 50% to 70% in most cases, sometimes I'll put it up higher.

earthpulse instructions8

So as you can see from the above steps and images, it's pretty darn easy to use the EarthPulse machine. It's a very simplified PEMF machine, and it makes it so easy that it won't really matter if you're not very technical, a couple of times using it, and you'll have it down no problem.

An Experience With The EarthPulse And Physical Healing – Pulled Leg Muscle

So not long after I had first started using the Earth Pulse, I was playing soccer, and I failed to warm up properly and pulled my hamstring. Nothing really serious, but nonetheless, I couldn't walk without limping and I had to be careful with how much pressure I put on the muscle during normal daily activities. It was just one of those annoying, but not serious injuries that we all get at some point here and there.

So I decided to test the EarthPulse on Recovery Mode, to see if it could increase the speed of my normal healing process. I was quite surprised when the day after using the device for about 2 hours, with the magnet directly under my hamstring, the amount of recovery that I had made after just 1 day was quite unusual. I was quite sure that the EarthPulse had increased the rate of healing somewhat, and actually to a rather large degree. 

Now, obviously I haven't done any scientific testing here, and it's really hard to judge this kind of thing. Also there is the factor of a placebo effect that could well have come into it, but I'm just telling you this based on my own perception of how it happened. PEMF sure does have plenty of research and scientific studies behind it when it comes to the physical therapy aspect of it's usage. Take a look at all these studies  published on pubmed.com (42 so far) showing the efficacy of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy for muscle, nerve and tissue regeneration. Also you can see a bunch of studies specifically on pain treatment on the earthpulse website itself.

Measuring Your Improvements With Resting Breath Hold Tests

Another big part of using the EarthPulse, and another claim to as to it's efficacy is that the pulsed electromagnetic therapy actually improves your bodies ability to absorb and make use of the oxygen in your blood (absorbed by the process of breathing).

This is demonstrated by taking what's called a “resting breath hold” periodically throughout your use with the Earthpulse, once at the very start of the process before you have used your Earthpulse for the first time, and then it's recommended to do it again in 2-4 weeks, and then like once every month or so to see how you progress.

Basically the test involves relaxing for a few minutes whilst lying down flat, to normalize your heart rate/breathing. Then once you've done that, you do what's called “oxygen loading” where you basically breathe deeper for about one and a half minutes, before you start the test which involves taking a final deep breath after oxygen loading, and then seeing how long you can hold your breath before you have to take another.

I was very shocked to see how much improvement I got in this area over time. Obviously it's a self administered test, so the experimentation is not all that clinically robust, but I still saw really steady improvements in the time I could hold my breath.

If you're interested here's my log from doing this test over the period of a few months since buying the Earthpulse initially:

oxygen load 90 seconds approx

position = lying down flat

test 1 (22/12/15) = 1 15 – 1 20 (exhale sudden and complete)

test 2 (04/01/16 = 1 15

test 3 (22/01/16) = 1 35

test 4 (13/02/16) = 1 58

test 5 (11/05/16) = 2 05

(so at the end, I was able to hold my breath just over 2 minutes total, that's quite an improvement from the initial 1 minute and fifteen seconds)

Best Place To Buy An EarthPulse?

When looking for an EarthPulse for sale, and looking to purchase online, you obviously have the common popular choice of going with Amazon. Funnily enough, this is one of those cases where it's actually better to go with the manufacturer directly (which is what I did myself). See, if you look at the Amazon listing, it's barely even clear which model that is, although I believe it's the v5 (without manual mode) for barely any difference in price.

Honestly, seeing as you're not going to be able to save yourself any money buying it there, and it's not being sold via Earth Pulse themselves on Amazon, but it's through a third party (Naljor Creations at the time of writing), there is little point, and I would recommend you go directly to the source, where you are getting the official pricing, official warranty, and definitely be able to claim your 90 day money back guarantee, should you have any issues, or not be satisfied with the results of using the EarthPulse.

It's also useful to note at this point that I have found their customer support to generally be pretty good, although they were a bit slow once getting back to me. But generally speaking they answer all your questions in a timely manner, and they get back to you quickly.

 

Final Verdict – Should You Buy An EarthPulse Sleep On Command?

As you can probably tell from having read everything else up until now, assuming you have, I'm pretty glad that I made the decision to just go ahead and purchase my EarthPulse. I don't know how my sleep would have been for the past 4 months or so without it, but I'm very thankful that this technology exists, that I came across it, and that I had the means to be able to purchase it.

Click here to view your options for purchase from the official EarthPulse ecommerce website

As mentioned earlier, this is more of an introductory/basic level PEMF device, so if you're looking for high end PEMF, this may not be the best choice. Having said that, I'll probably be investing in something far more expensive in terms of PEMF down the road (like a full body, multiple magnet, PEMF mat), but I'm still very glad that I gave the EarthPulse a shot, and used it as an introductory device, so I could play around with the potential of this amazing technology.

So without going on and on, I think it's a great investment if you want to use PEMF for pain, or for sleep. Ultimately, if you're suffering like I was, then give it a shot, you really have nothing at all to lose, and it may turn out to be the savior for YOUR sleep or physical pain issues, as it was mine. I'm not going to hype it up, and pretend like it's some miracle device, saying it's going to magically make you happy for ever after 😀 you'll still be in reality, with it's ups and downs, but it might just make things a little less painful, and that's always a good thing in my books.

So that's ultimately it for my Earthpulse review, if you've had experience with the EarthPulse, or you are going to give it a shot, please do post below and tell us how it went for you! We'd love to get your feedback, whether positive or negative!

Great article, very in depth, thanks for all the prior research!!! Just wondering though, do you notice any side effects from using the earthpulse? I’m pretty interested in the idea of using one to help my sleep improve, but that’s my main hold back really.

Nick Earl - last year

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for your feedback, awesome that you found it worth your time! okay, so I personally haven’t had any side effects that I can say for sure are related to the Earthpulse, but I guess that could be hard to tell too, as I do a lot of testing all the time with different supplements that I’m adding, etc, etc.

So I can’t definitively say the Earthpulse has no negative side effects, but from my experience it seems to be pretty safe and I haven’t seen anything I can attribute to it’s usage so far. Will update the page at some point to discuss that, as it’s a great question!

Cheers

That’s a great and informative article. I was looking into purchasing an earth pulse in the future and you definitely covered all my woes and concerns about spending the money on such a product. I think I will go ahead and take the risk. Thanks for the help and info.

    Thanks Sean, I’m stoked that you found it useful. Yeah, I will probably update this article soon. I think EP is awesome, but it’s not something I use every night now. It got me through that stage of bad insomnia, and now my sleep is getting better, I’m trying to just get back to getting a good nights sleep completely naturally without any device. But when I was suffering badly and going mad with lack of sleep, this device was an absolute life saver!

Hi Nick! This is a very thorough review! I’ve had some mild episodes of sleeplessness – mostly brought on by stress – but nothing like you’ve experienced. Even though the device is kind of expensive, I’m sure you feel that it was money well spent. Insomnia can really wreck your life. I have a friend who has suffered from it for years has to take drugs to sleep. I’ll be sure to pass this information along to her.

    Hey Marge, thanks for reading! yeah, in my opinion the $700 or whatever it was was nothing for me to get through that period and put it behind me. Also, funnily enough, just having the EP is kind of comforting, because I know I have something that really puts me to sleep if I can’t do it myself, though that’s not so much of an issue these days.

    Yes, chronic insomnia can and does destroy lives. It’s a nasty thing to go through.

    Apart from hacks like this, I would recommend people go back to basics as much as possible, and look at their artificial light intake, diet, exercise, sleeping and waking times. Although as I said above, sometimes are bodies are so badly out of their natural rhythms that they need something like the earthpulse to really shift it back to a more normal pattern.

Hi,
Like everyone I’m sure, I also suffer sleeplessness at times, mostly waking up, and being unable to get back to sleep, so your comments are very useful. It is great to hear your first hand experience. – Thank you

    Hi Dawn, yes it’s very common. I think getting adequate sunlight in the morning and during the day in general and looking after your circadian rhythm has a lot to do with this. I’ve noticed improvements since making sure to get a good amount of sunlight in the day time and going to bed earlier. From what I’ve researched, it’s really important for many biological processes to try and be getting to sleep by 10pm or thereabouts on most nights.

I think this is the most complete review I have ever read. Thanks for all the helpful details. Can you get addicted to this product? Like once you use it and then don’t is it harder to sleep without it?

    Hi Elizabeth, thank you very much for the kind words! I don’t think addiction is an issue. I used this every night for about 2 months when my insomnia was at it’s worst, and I didn’t notice any problem with stopping using it after my sleep had improved to a certain point.

Nicely done….the muscle recovery aspect may help me to extend my rugby playing days further…..to my wife’s horror.

Hi Nick, my husband is a chronic insomniac who often gets up in the night, and can be quite grumpy in the morning from lack of sleep. If I were to get one for him, would there be any downside for me, as I have no trouble sleeping (unless I get woken up by his restlessness!)

    Hi Jackie,

    It’s possible, and basically impossible for me to say what would happen one way or the other, as it’s so dependent on how you personally react to different frequencies of the Earthpulse. If you’re husband benefited from say the “sleep 3” mode, and you did, then that would be great! but there is no way to really know if that’s the case without straight up self-experimentation. You do have the 3-month warranty, so you have pretty low risk if you wanted to try it out. Thanks for the comment, I hope it works out for him whatever you end up trying!!

Interesting article! You’ve definitely done your research. I don’t personally struggle with insomnia but my mother does and I’ll be passing on this info to her. Thanks!

Hi Nick, Thanks for the detailed review. I have looked at a number of sleep enhancement options and this product looks compelling. Does it cause any skin irritation? Other devices I have used, the rubber or plastic has irritated my skin.

    Hi Quinn!

    Nope, I didn’t experience any skin reactions using the EarthPulse at all… As a disclaimer, I cannot promise you that this will not happen for YOU personally as everyone is different of course. But I can say that there money back 90 day trial period is pretty solid, so you shouldn’t have any problems if you wanted to give it a try.

    Cheers

Thanks for the thorough review! I have been looking for something to help a friend with insomnia. I didn’t know anything about PEMF therapy for insomnia. I will pass this site and information along.

Hi, I have had 4.7 Ep with a v5.0pro magnet , I bought it second hand on eBay uk , its worked like magic on day#1 and I’ve had chronic insomnia for 18 years ! However the guy who sold it advertised it as v5 , so I was thinking if sending it back, he told me I can , but it worked so well I would keep it, but he told me he would refund me part payment , ( he in fact sent his v5pro magnet by mistake . And wanted it back ,) so he send me a part refund and the proper v4.7 magnet . Its still worked great with the 4.7 magnet although the effect was much stronger with the new stringer Gauss v5.0pro magnet. I sold my v4.7 EP back on eBay with a profit ! And then decided to purchase a EP v5pro used one from USA with full 2 years warranty.

My sleep has been great . 2 magnets is great … .

This device comes highly recommended so all chronic insomnia sufferers, u don’t have to suffer anymore.

Good luck.

Bye.

Nick,

Great write up! Are you being compensated by Earth Pulse? I’ve had sleep issues all my life (even as an infant). I’ve done a lot of YouTube/internet research on PEMF recently. I’m considering buying an Earth Pulse unit. You are recommending the more expensive V5 but found the manual mode (found in the less expensive V5 Basic) more beneficial. Also, why two magnets? Wouldn’t one magnet work just as well for sleep? Thanks.

    Hi Brian!

    Thanks so much for the kind words, and I’m sorry to hear about your sleep issues. I know all too well how it feels to have to go through another day on 2-3 hours sleep…

    Yes, this is my website, and I earn money from it by promoting products that I believe in (preferably that I’ve had my own personal experience with too). You can see my disclosure here: http://healthvibed.com/affiliate-disclosure/

    I am recommending the one I used because it has BOTH the manual and preset modes. Some people will want preset modes because these modes cycle through different frequencies over the period of time you are using them. For example Sleep 3 goes down into “3 Hz stepping down to 1 Hz back to 3 Hz for total of 4 cycles then wake up phase and 1 hour 14.1 Hz buffer;” (quoted directly from their website).

    I think if you’re going to invest in one of these, you want to have all the modes and manual too, for the extra couple of hundred dollars. That’s just my point of view. I also think with their money back guarantee they have made it pretty much a no-brainer for people, and I recommend this to those with long term insomnia issues. I do still recommend that you try and get your sleep back to being as natural as possible without any devices, but for some like myself when I was really bad, I needed something with more power to get me out of that nightmarish pattern.

    Soon I will be lending my EarthPulse to a friend of mine (an older fellow) who’s had chronic insomnia for many years, and It will be very interesting to see how the EarthPulse helps his sleep.

    I will be posting the results of that case study here, so stay tuned! 🙂

    Forgot to add about the magnets. Basically the more magnets the better. As you will have seen with the really expensive PEMF devices like the IMRS 2000 it’s a whole body system (mat). You are just going to get more effect, the more areas of your body are exposed to the low extra low frequencies of PEMF.

    Anymore questions on this, just feel free to ask!

Hi Nick, Thank you for the thorough review and for your honestly with the person who asked if you get reimbursement from the company that makes the device. I thought you might get a kickback of some kind for doing the review, but I’m assuming that you would not give glowing reviews for devices you found to be worthless? I mean, people would get upset with you and stop following your blog if they discovered that, so I’m thinking you do reviews of the things you feel you can truly get behind, right?
Okay, so I have a few questions. First, I have breast cancer that has spread to my bones, so I really have been looking at PEMF therapy because of it’s ability to speed bone healing…but I also have a horrible time sleeping! I wake MULTIPLE times throughout the night, needing to change position, etc… so my questions:
1. In your research, do you find that the more expensive machines (full body matts) also help with sleep? Or are they strictly more for healing/recovery?
2. When you say you had to turn down the strength of it (manually) can you expound on what you are feeling that tells you that you can’t tolerate higher settings? Were you having muscle spasms? Pain? Or just feeling agitated?
3. Which leads me to this question…if just having this device turned up to full strength would not be tolerable to you, how could you possibly stand a full body mat? Or am I not understanding this correctly! 😀 VERY possible
4. Finally, can you put the magnet/magnets directly in contact (well, through clothes) with an area that is causing you can?
Thanks so much if you find time to reply to all of this! Sorry so much!

    Hi Mary,

    Happy to help you as I can. Firstly, yes, I make a commission from products on this site that I recommend, including the Earthpulse. This website all started for me out of my own passion to heal myself, and it’s an ongoing process, which I will work on forever as I’m continuing to improve my health, hopefully all the way into what I would call “optimal health”. At the end of the day, we all have to make a living, and this is what I consider a worthwhile investment of my time, and also a way to help others in the process hopefully, by sharing my experiences of what’s helped me progress.

    Yes, everything I’ve said on this page is true. The Earthpulse has helped me overcome insomnia. In fact, as I write this, several months after going through the initial terrible period of chronic insomnia, which is when I decided to jump in and try the earthpulse, I am currently playing with a new supplement for improving my mood via improving my methylation pathway function (SamE – article coming soon). The problem is that this supplement can be very stimulating, and so my insomnia came back.

    I have been using the Earthpulse along with passion flower extract for anxiety/relaxing (article linked) and eating a small amount of healthy carbs, and it completely works for getting back into deep sleep, after waking at 2-4am, which is my usual insomnia pattern when my biochemistry is off. This has been working great, and is the difference between me hating my life and not wanting to face the day, and having an okay sleep.

    This is just a temporary use of the Earthpulse, as I actually would prefer to use nothing (including 0 supplements) and just have good natural sleep, but when that’s not happening, the EP is an amazing tool, that makes a huge difference.

    Sure, I’ll try answer your questions, but please remember I’m not a qualified health professional, and to make your own decisions with the help of your own medical professional, okay?

    1) I can only say based on what I’ve read, as I’ve only so far used the Earthpulse for myself, but yes, I believe that all PEMF machines can be used to help with sleep, the trick is getting the frequency that works for you, as we are different and have different sensitivities, etc.

    2) No, nothing bad happens, I just don’t go to sleep until I use the right setting. For me the Manual setting on 7.8 Hz, or the entrain down mode are the best for helping my sleep, preferably the former, as the latter doesn’t ensure I will stay asleep quite as well. (make sure you get a version of the earthpulse with the manual setting, as per on this page.

    3) As I said, nothing bad happens, it’s just slightly overstimulating which is shown by me not going to sleep. You have to realize we’re talking ELFs here (extremely low frequencies) so the affects are subtle. This is no where near the frequency range of all the harmful EMP (electromagnetic pollution) that we’re dealing with generally all the time in western society from phones, wifi, etc.

    4) You mean “causing you pain?” Yes, the EP can be used for physical pain management and healing (see my story above in the article about how I noticed faster healing from a pulled muscle when using the device (pretty anecdotal evidence, but still)

    No problem, I hope it helps you Mary, and do let us know how you go if you decide to get an Earthpulse, I would love for you to come back and post your story (positive or negative, as it’s all personal and helps everyone here) Most people seem to find the Earthpulse helpful, and the company claim that it has a very low refund rate (something like 2-5%) and you do have 90 days to try it out, pretty low risk, you would just have to incur the shipping charges if you did send it back.

    Hope it helps!!

    Nick

Just to clarify Mary, as per the versions page here, I chose the V5, as it has manual mode and the presets, which are helpful too (I believe entrain down which I mentioned using is a preset mode)

Your writing was pretty good, I wish I I could buy the machine earlier, but where can I buy it who could give an verry clear instruction how to use that erathpulse machne?
Most of the Youtube shows talk about things that we don’t need it as a starter to use the machine, what we need is basic operation how to start and gradually another step.

    Hi Soen,

    Unfortunately I can no longer recommend this product, as I had a bad personal experience with the company recently, which has soured my opinion of them. I also find the product inconsistent in terms of helping me sleep which is the main reason that I use it. It’s still somewhat helpful, but sometimes not at all, so very inconsistent. I’m looking at the deltasleeper as my next investment, you might benefit from checking it out.

Hi there,
I am now a bit confused.
You say that you can no longer recommend this product because you recently had a bad experience with the company and yet the article is still up and if I had not read all the way to the bottom of the page wouldn’t have seen this.
Are you now saying that people should not buy this product?
Could you please tell us what your bad experience was?
Had I not read your last reply I was just about ready to order one.
If you are now negative about the company/products would it not make sense to pull this review?
Please help me to understand as I am a chronic insomniac who suffers badly from muscle and back pain and am desperately looking for relief.
Best regards.

Tommo.

    Hi Anthony,

    Yeah, the company were very rude to me in my partnership with me, and ripped me off some owed money from referring new customers. Not saying the Earthpulse doesn’t work at all, but I can no longer really recommend them based on how they treated me personally. I would feel uncomfortable recommending a company that treats anyone with such disrespect as they did me.

    I will be updating this page when I have time to reflect this. I know how it feels to suffer insomnia, have you checked out this product? I haven’t used it yet, but have heard good things so far, and it will be my next product review regarding sleep improvement devices on this site.

    I wish you the best Tommo, sorry for the confusion. I can only be honest about my personal experience.

please have your review of the next sleeping device up soon! Was going to buy the earth pulse but I wasn’t too sure I’ve been suffering terribly from insomnia, now I still need some time to make a decision after seeing your response.

    Nick Earl - a few months ago

    Hey Chloe, will do! Sorry got a lot on right now, but as I’ve mentioned elsewhere, for now you might wanna try the DeltaSleeper, as it’s been said to be one of the best sleep specific PEMFs on the market, and I like the fact that it lowers EMFs by switching itself off. Will get a review of it up ASAP! 🙂

    Reply
    Nick Earl - a few months ago

    Update For Chloe and others interested! Good news, I’m getting my Deltasleeper in just a week or 2 now, and I’ll be doing a full test and review on this site. I’ll be tracking my sleep like I did with the EarthPulse, and I’m excited about the possibilities for improving my sleep with this new PEMF device.

    I feel my sleep is about 75% better now from when I first started this journey, but I could still do with an improvement, as I still wake up and stay awake for too long during the night.

    Anyway, if you’re getting this, stay tuned, and I’ll have a full review soon enough!

    Nick
