Magnetic Therapy, How And Why Magnets Effect The Body

Magnetic Therapy, How And Why Magnets Effect The Body

Have you ever read or been told that “it is not known why magnets work”? Well, this is untrue. All human and animal bodies are electromagnetic. This fact is closely allied to the body’s chemical balance, which can be either healthy or unhealthy.

It is now known scientifically that a healthy body contains slightly alkaline fluids and that an unhealthy body is acidic. A poor diet can make the body acidic; in this state, all sorts of diseases will thrive. (Dr. John Millward MD, “Your Life in the Balance,” available on our website.)

It is also known that a positive electrical charge exists at damaged sites in the body, which affects both the chemical balance and the electrical balance in the area resulting in pain. The body’s systems send a negative electrical charge to the area to effect healing. (Dr. Robert Becker, “The Body Electric”)

This healing action of the body is easily restricted by poor diet, lifestyle, alcohol, drugs, etc. There is also much evidence of something called “Magnetic Deficiency Syndrome” being a significant contributor to restricting the body’s ability to respond to illness. I will be looking in depth at this syndrome in a later article.

It is now firmly established that a negative magnetic field, provided by a geomagnetic north pole magnetic field (the same as the Earth’s North Pole), is the most natural way of providing much-needed support for the body’s immune system.
Dr. W Philpott MD, a practitioner of magnet therapy for over 40 years, explains that negative magnetic fields oxygenate and alkalize by aiding the body’s defenses and helping to relieve pain. Further, they combat inflammation and infection and enhance deep restorative sleep.

This latter point is critical. The correct amount of good quality sleep is essential to combat disorders resulting from our current lifestyles’ stress. Combine this with the possibility of at least reducing the number of powerful drugs taken and what results in a completely natural complementary therapy.

It is probably wise at this stage to say that anyone reading this article undergoing a course of treatment with a health professional should not stop the treatment but consider using magnetic therapy in support. Also, magnetic therapy should not be used if electronic implants are present in the body.

Given the correct choice and placement of the magnetic devices, this is probably the most effective alternative therapy—typical successful application results in 80 to 90% of cases with some forms of dis-ease. Magnet therapy can be applied by you whenever and wherever needed. Modern materials technology has produced small, powerful, inexpensive magnets which can be used anywhere on the body and can be moved about to find the best positions. Sleeping on magnets provides a most efficacious application.

In the following article in this series, I will look at the subject of magnets, their strength measurement, and a complete explanation of polarity.
