Magnetic therapy ( by Ben Ash Pretoria (Tshwane), JHB in South Africa)
Magnetic Therapy is the application of magnetic fields on parts of the body to
speed healing, relative pain and inflammation, and improve bodily functions. The
magnetic therapy simulates the earth's magnetic field and places your body in an
optimum environment to heal itself. The physiology of the wide range of Benefits
is not completely understood but believed to come from increased blood
circulation for greater supplies of oxygen and nutrients and improving removal
of contaminants and toxins from body tissues. The magnetic therapy simulates the
earth's magnetic field and places your body in an optimum environment to heal
The idea of using magnetism for healing is not new. Early Chinese medical
literature claimed healing properties for lodestone, a naturally magnetic
mineral. In 1530, Paracelsus reported on treatments by magnetic fields at the
University of Basel. In recent times, the biological effects of magnetic fields
have been studied in Japan, the Soviet Union, Europe and the United States.
Since the late 1950's, numerous studies have been done in Japan which have
demonstrated the effectiveness of magnetic fields for treating various human
complaints and a number of medical papers have been published on this subject.
Magnetic necklaces and bracelets are sold in Japan, Korea, China, and in Europe
for the relief of neck, shoulder and back pain and stiffness as well as to
improve circulation. Magnetic back and knee supports are sold to help relieve
pain and stiffness in those areas.
Although the foreign studies do not specifically
mention the use of these items for relief of arthritis pain and stiffness, most
users report excellent results for this application. The small magnetic patches
are very popular for the relief of muscle pain and soreness and are applied to
the painful area like a spot "band-aid," or in some cases are applied to
acupuncture points to stimulate them magnetically instead of with needles. I
A U.S. researcher, Albert Roy Davis, is credited with the discovery that the two
poles of a magnet have different, and essentially opposite effects on both
living and non-living systems. He was awarded several patents for his work in
this area and his discoveries provided the basis for research currently being
done on magnet therapy in which, contrary to the action of most of the Japanese
devices, the energy from essentially one pole or the other is used.

in the muscles of the human body."

and pains in the waist and muscles with its magnetic effects and
Healthy Magnetic Ornament (1978) (Magnetic Necklace) "…the magnetic ornament of
the invention is more suitable for promotion of good health, that is, it
facilitates blood circulation and, hence, has a favorable effect on the removal
of stiffness in the shoulders and muscular pain."
"Flexible permanent magnetic sheets have been used in the past for promoting
blood circulation and body heating on peripheral body sites."
As new and more powerful magnetic materials have become available, new
applications for them have also evolved. Such is the case with the new
super-powerful neodymium-iron-boron magnetic alloy. This is the most powerful
magnetic alloy, which is commercially available, and it is rapidly finding new
applications in numerous areas of technology, which employ magnets.
In 1987, Professor Goesta Wollin, a scientist and
researcher of world renown, who was for more than 30 years associated with
Columbia University, presented a 57-page report at Chalmers University of
Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, on the use of these new "super" magnets for the
treatment of cancer.
How to Use Magnets
Using Magnets on Localized Pain
A small area of pain, like a knuckle, can be treated with an individual magnet.
A larger area like a hip, knee or lower back will require a larger magnetic
treatment product. Multiple pain trigger points will require several magnetic
products for simultaneous treatment as continuous use gives the best results.
What makes magnets so attractive are their effectiveness, ease of use, low cost,
durability and no side effects. Place the magnet or pad directly over the point
of pain. It can be held in place with surgical tape, an elastic or cloth wrap, a
Velcro band or even a band aid. Magnets are exceptionally safe and as such can be
used as often as necessary.
To use magnets to ease the discomfort of pain, try placing them as follows for
the highest probability of success:
Step1) Directly over the area of pain for localized treatment, removing them
only when bathing. Most will find some relief in a few days, however, for a few
it may take several weeks.
Step2) If the above doesn't work, place them over referral points such as over
the hip for a thigh or upper knee pain or over the lower back for hip pain.
Step3) If these fail, try placing them over acupuncture points related to the
pain area. For this type of treatment, several small magnets may be required.

To understand the
concept of magnetic energy therapy we must first recognize that everything
in nature, including man, depends on electromagnetic energy to
Man is nothing more
than a bio magnetic energy field living in a magnetic atmosphere. Like a
fish living in water with water inside its body, we live in an ocean of
electro-magnetism, while simultaneously possessing magnetic energy in our
Each cell or unit of
our body consists of approximately 80-90 MLV of magnetic energy. Therefore
our body is a generator of electricity or energy. Conventional medicine
uses electro-cardiograms and Electro-encephalograms to diagnose medical
cases. These elecrograms record on paper the magnetic energy of the heart
It is only recently
that scientists discovered the brain possesses magnetic energy. At the
beginning of the space age in 1959, Russian Scientists brought about a new
chapter in the science of biomagnetism with the launch of the Sputnik
It was during the same
time when President John F Kennedy ordered extensive research about
magnetism and the translation of publications about space magnetism into
It was after these
investigations that man could finally set foot on the moon because of the
secret of the relation of man with magnetism had been discovered. The
scientists discovered man is but a magnetic being living in a biomagnetic
atmosphere. The book "Biomagnet" is a memorial to the same period of
Because man cannot
separate himself from this electromagnetic atmosphere, any dis-equilibrium
between this environment and man's magnetic energy can have dire
consequences. A healthy body acquires the necessary energy from its
environment. Any living creature deprived of this energy, by natural or
artificial means, will first succumb to different diseases.
THE EARTH 'S
MAGNETIC FIELD IS NOT PERMANENT
discovered that during the last five centuries the earth has lost 50% of
its magnetic energy. Each century it will lose 5% of the same energy and
each year it will lose an additional 0.05%. There will come a day when the
earth's magnetic energy reaches zero quantity--when life on earth will
cease. Scientists estimate this will happen 2000 years from
In today's typical
urban landscape man is surrounded everywhere by iron in building
materials, elevators, trains, automobiles, industrial and household
appliances, etc. Since iron absorbs lines of magnetic force, we generally
receive less magnetism in urban areas in contrast with the non-urban
environment: where the average intensity of terrestrial magnetism is 0.5
gauss but drops to 0.2 gauss in, for example, an elevator or an
Measurements have also
gauged 0.2 to 0.3 gauss of the magnetic field within the human body. The
significant point here is that a balance between the body's inner
magnetism and outer magnetic field appears to be a desirable factor in
overall health care. Consequently, the primary function of magnetic energy
therapy is to supply sufficient magnetism to the human organism in order
to maintain the desired balance between the body's inner magnetism and the
environment's external magnetic fields.

and its effect on the heart have shown that heart disease can be adversely
affected by changes in the earth's magnetic field. Data collected
indicates that cardiac complications, such as arrhythmia (irregular
pulse), are more likely to occur when terrestrial magnetism is high. Data
yielding similar results exists in relation to eye disease, kidney
disease, stomach ulcers, epilepsy, rheumatism and hypertension.
scientists have noted a correlation between increased activity of the
earth's magnetic field and the incidence of smallpox, dysentery, polio,
and scarlet fever.
Any material that is
magnetized in a magnetic field is called a magnetic body, or a magnetic
substance. The human body is a magnetic "substance" whose intensity is
roughly 0.2 to 0.3 gauss.
The fact that the
human organism is magnetic substance suggests to the scientific community
that magnetism plays a critical role in the preservation of life. The
results of a very important experiment conducted in the United States in
1963 underscored the premise.
