Rediscovery Of Magnetic
Therapy Health Natural
The use of Magnetic Therapy used by humans was recorded by the
Chinese in the Yellow Emperor's Book of Internal Medicine at approximately 2000
Authors/researchers George J. Washnis and Richard
Z. Hirak say that "Very vital magnetic energy enters our bodies from the earth's
natural magnetic field. Unfortunately, the earth's field has been declining over the
centuries, as much as 5% in the past century alone. And it's effect is further reduced by
reinforced concrete buildings, elevators and autos. Somehow we have got to make up the
difference, as well as fight off the effect of certain adverse electromagnetic fields from
high power transmission lines, computers, microwaves and other household appliances.
Magnetic therapy can relax tense muscles, relieve
muscular and skeletal pain, and accelerate the healing process. The treatment involves the
placing of the simple, natural magnets of the correct configuration on the body tissue,
allowing the body to heal itself.
Millions of Americans use natural alternative
medicine. Worldwide, over 100 million people use magnetic therapy: 30 million in Japan
alone, where 10 million sleep on magnetic beds to counter the effect of stress, fatigue,
arthritis, sciatica, carpal tunnel, asthma, migraines, and more."
According to Dr. William H. Philpott, an Oklahoma
psychiatrist and neurologist who has researched biomagnetics for many years, "A
negative magnetic field applied to our body stimulates the sleep hormone, melatonin, and
promotes more restful sleep."
Champion golfer Jim Colbert relies on magnets to
keep playing without back pain and discomfort, as well as increase energy. He damaged a
disc in his lower back when he was 15, and played in constant pain until he discovered
"I would not think of playing without
magnets. I play with a bioceramic belt under my shirt and travel with the magnet sleeping
pads," says Colbert.
Magnetic Natural Therapy
Magnetic energy has been used therapeutically
throughout the world for hundreds of years. Scientific medicine is currently in a state of
rapid change, and several magnetic instruments have now passed FDA approval for both
safety and therapeutic claims. Non-union fractures have been treated magnetically for over
40 years, with an overall success rate of more than 80%, when other procedures had failed.
Over 4,000 medical and scientific papers have been published on the use of magnetics.
Experiments at Loma Linda University, M.I.T., and
several European universities have proven that certain magnetic devices increase the blood
flow. The proposed pathological mechanism behind many orthopedic and congenital problems
is a lack of vascular flow and a disturbance of neural tissues. In other words - proper
nutrients were not getting to the cells! Several
theories have been proposed, but the end result has tended to fall into the following
- relief of pain and inflammation
- stimulation of tissue
- increased blood circulation
- increased oxygen to the tissues
From the standpoint of biophysics, magnetic
therapy polarizes anions and cations. That is, the tissue salts are brought from a state
of inactivity and stagnation to order and alignment within the cells and tissues. Injury
depolarizes damaged cells. Magnetic stimulation gets the tissue fluids flowing again,
waste products are removed, edema and congestion is regulated, and so cell metabolism soon
reverts back to normal.
Magnetic fields, therefore, are simply very
useful forms of physical therapy. Most benefits are due to a biophysical field which
allows cellular functions to improve considerably. So when field lines impact on the
animal organism, or on parts of it, they absolutely permeate these areas. Within the range
of the magnetic field, all parts of the body are penetrated equally.
We know that magnetic therapy is as natural as
nature. Without pills or drugs, we are influencing the healing and regenerative powers
already within the genetic makeup of any organism. And that is a truly holistic approach

by WILLIAM H. PHILPOTT, M.D. in his book: "
The human body itself is an electromagnetic
machine. Each body cell has a positive and a negative field and physical and mental
functions from the brain and central nervous system. Moreover, all life plant and
animal, including human exists in and responds to the magnetic field of the Earth.
For instance, Earths magnetism activates the enzyme system in fruits and vegetables
that causes normal ripening. And homing pigeons are magnetically guided back to the coop.
In just the past decade, we have begun to realize
that, since magnetic energy influences our health, it can be used to intentionally improve
our health. Indeed, enough is already known for me to outline to you why this is so and
what you might want to do about it.
As electromagnetic systems, our bodies exist in
balance between and under the influence of negative and positive magnetic forces. The
Earths crust exerts a powerful negative magnetic field, while during the day we
experience the suns opposite, positive magnetic force. At night, the Earths
negative magnetic energy increases cellular oxygen, encourages deep restorative sleep,
supports biological healing, reduces inflammation and relieves pain. But when the sun
comes up, its positive magnetic energy decreases cellular oxygen, stimulates wakefulness,
inhibits biological healing, increases pain, and can increase inflammation.
All lifeplant and
animal, including human exists in and responds to the magnetic field of the Earth.
The pineal gland in the center of our heads
controls hormones, enzymes and immune function, and is itself a magnetic organ containing
magnetite crystals. It is acutely sensitive to magnetic energy and produces its most
important and characteristic substance, the sleep hormone melatonin, almost entirely
during the night when the Earths negative magnetic field is dominant. In turn, human
growth hormone, which is produced by the hypothalamus as we sleep, appears to be strongly
influenced by melatonin levels.
It may startle you to learn that the negative
magnetic field of the Earth can be duplicated and enhanced with the aid of simple
commercial magnets. There is no fundamental difference between Earths negative
magnetic terrestrial field, with all its effects, and the negative magnetic field in any
unipole magnet, with its negative force on one side and its positive force on the opposite
Without discussing the wide range of
illnesses from arthritis and atherosclerosis to schizophrenia and sleep
disordersthat a qualified practitioner can treat with magnets, Id like to
simply illustrate how the negative field of magnets stimulates the pineal glands
production of melatonin and the hypothalamus production of human growth hormone.
As electromagnetic systems,
our bodies exist in balance between and under the influence of negative and positive
As we age, we produce less of these essential
hormones. But high levels of melatonin are necessary for adequate sleep, and human growth
hormone is a controlling factor in hair, skin and muscle mass. Its decline is
responsible for the effects of aging. So it may be no exaggeration to say that magnetic
stimulation of the pineal gland could slow the aging process. I have seen many people
(including myself) whose hair and skin became healthier as a result of magnetic therapy.
Some people show signs of hair returning to its normal color. Because of the increase of
human growth hormone, older subjects typically show an increased rate of hair and nail
There are two simple bed time uses of magnets.
You may apply "negative" polarity Magnetic Energy to
yourself while you sleep by standing two 4" X 6" ceramic magnets an inch apart on your
headboard, say two or three inches from the top of your head. Be sure to keep the negative
poles facing toward you, so that your head is in the Magnetic Field.
Better yet, place a magnetic pad under your
mattress with the negative poles facing up. This will keep your entire body in a negative
The idea of magnetic therapy may seem novel and
perhaps even disarmingly simple, but I can assure you that my experiences with several
thousand patients support its very real effects.
Moreover, the FDA has officially declared that
magnetic therapy carries no health risks.
Electromagnetism and its
effects on the body may be one of the most exciting scientific breakthroughs in current
research. Since 1989, when the FDA was among the sponsors of the first Conference on
Emerging Electromagnetic Medical Technology, It has approved an Institutional Review Board
for the research projects of the Bio-Electro Magnetic Institute.
Magnetic energy has a beneficial effect on
blood circulation, lymph flow, hormone production, nerves and muscles.

Magnets And Biology
The Biological Effects Of Magnetism?
by Ken Wiancko,
whether alternating or pulsating magnetic fields have a biological effect, can be answered
positively, in as much as the physical entity "magnetic field" is in a position
to affect the organism in a bioenergetic way.
We know that with
many diseases the surface potentials of the cells in the organism seem to vary when
compared with the normal values.
The magnetic field
completely permeates the body and thus every single cell.
The ions in the cells
and the colloidal system are influenced, as we know, by magnetism and are moved in
accordance with the magnetic pulsation that passes through them.
recent experiments proved that the partial pressure of oxygen in the tissue may increase
up to 1,000% compared to the initial value under the influence of pulsating magnetic
fields of a certain intensity and frequency.
pulsating magnetic field enables an effective therapy which can be used for a broad range
of indications. The changes in the surface potentials of the cell, the colloidal state and
the degree of ionization of the tissue, that occur in many diseases are markedly
influenced by the entire body in rapid pulsation.
causes a better blood circulation in the vessels and capillaries, increasing the partial
pressure of oxygen in the tissue and resulting in an accelerated transportation of
metabolic waste products - a basic requirement for every healing process.
Measurements by means of highly sensitive thermography devices showed a
significantly improved circulation.
Magnetic fields permeate the whole organism. when intensity and frequency are
controlled properly, energy is accumulated in all tissues of the body.
As a result of long-lasting changes in the condition of the colloidal tissues
increases in cell activity and membrane potential will occur. In addition, intra-corporeal
electric processes will intensity again and a regeneration of all functional parts and
organs of the body can be clearly noted.
Therapy And Pain
According to a new book, The Pain Relief
Breakthrough: The Power of Magnets, co-authors Julian Whitaker, M.D., and Brenda Adderly
say magnets can also help headaches, arthritis, menstrual cramps, carpal tunnel syndrome
and a variety of other ailments. My patients have reaped the benefits of
magnets, and I believe that millions more can experience these miraculous results as
well, says Whitaker, director of the Whitaker Wellness Institute in Newport Beach,
Calif., and founder of the American Preventative Medicine Association. Sports
heroes, superstars and doctors say there are no negatives, and a lot of positives,
about the latest way to treat aches and pains---with magnets.
Supporters such as Academy Award winner Anthony
Hopkins hail the age-old method of natural healing as a miracle cure for twinges and the
physical symptoms of stress, like headaches and depression."I tried everything but
nothing seemed to get rid of the pain," says Hopkins. who used magnets to end a bout
of shoulder pain. "When I heard about the magnetic treatment, I jumped at the chance
to try it. It answered my prayers."
And Dan Marino of the NFL's Miami Dolphins swears
that magnets strapped to his fractured ankle not only helped the bones to heal more
quickly but also eased the pain.
Even golfers find magnets attractive. According
to Golf Magazine, many of the senior pro golfers use them to stay limber on the
