What The Experts Say
In his book, The Body Electric, Dr. Robert Becker observed that an injury site registers South-positive immediately. It changes to North-negative during the healing process, indicating that a North-negative field promotes healing.
Dr. William Philpott explains the pH factor and the calcium factor in his book, Cancer The Magnetic/Oxygen Answer.
Reduced ionized calcium plays a major role as a common denominator in degenerative disease, in addition to acidosis. Reduced ionized calcium is not necessarily related to a lack of calcium in the diet. It is more likely related to reactions to environmental pollutants that cause an acid response in the body. He states that calcium and other minerals can only remain in a soluble state in the presence of an alkaline medium. In acid mediums they become insoluble.
Negative magnetic fields oxygenate and alkalize by aiding the body’s defense against bacteria, fungi, and parasites, all of which thrive in an acid medium. In degenerative diseases, calcium is found deposited around inflamed joints, bruised areas on the heel, and in bones and kidney stones. Infections occur because they function well in an acidic, oxygen deficient state.
A negative magnetic field combats inflammation and infection and enables the body to resolve troublesome calcium and mineral deposits.
A negative magnetic field is effective in relieving pain due to its oxygenation and alkalinizing action.
A negative magnetic field enhances deep restorative sleep. The pineal gland produces melatonin in the presence of a negative magnetic field.
Oxygen and water are paramagnetic and can carry a magnetic field to all parts of the body through blood circulation.
Dr. Philpott states that negative magnetic energy is capable of filling indented skin where a tumor has been. He also reports that no scar tissue will form where a cancerous tumor is neutralized by North Pole magnetic energy. The same magnetic energy field eliminates scar tissue formation when a cut heals.
Dr. Philpott’s findings support Dr. J. Bischko’s studies at the Ludwig Boltzmann Clinic in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Bischko used bipolar magnetic pads.
Dr. Philpott postulates that when a negative magnetic field is applied to a diseased internal organ, such as the liver, a three month application of negative magnetic energy may be required to cure the disease. An additional three month application may be required to repair the organ. His advice is to ensure that the magnet being used is larger than the lesion being treated and that sustained treatment with negative energy from a permanent magnet be applied.
Dr. K. Nakagawa’s study,Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome, states the human body is under the influence of the earth’s magnetic field and is keeping some sort of a balanced relationship with it. However, under modern day living conditions, the effect of this magnetic field has decreased. Consequently, in some situations we can assume that this lack of magnetism has caused some abnormalities. By applying a magnetic field on the human body to supplement this deficiency, such abnormal conditions can be improved. In other words, there is a direct relationship between the decrease in the earth’s magnetic field on the human body and the improvement of abnormal conditions by the application of magnetic fields.
It was reported the early astronauts suffered from a magnetic field deficiency while orbiting in space away from the earth’s magnetic field. This caused some serious medical problems including a rapid loss in bone density. This deficiency was corrected by providing an artificial magnetic field in the spacecraft.
Research by Dr. J. Bischko and Dr. Peter Kokoshinegg at the Ludwig Boltzmann Acupuncture Institute, and the Institute of Biophysics and Ray-Research in Vienna, Austria, indicated the following; Scar tissue breaks down and new skin forms when an alternating field magnetic pad is applied.
TDK Industries of Japan carried out three important studies where magnetic necklaces were tested to find their effectiveness in treating stiff shoulders. The conclusion was that magnetic necklaces effectively reduced discomfort in 81.1% to 96.3% of subjects. No noticeable side effects were found in respect to the clinical examination results. (Magnetic necklaces produce alternating Pole energy)
Dr. Ken Wiancko MD, wrote an article (Health Naturally, April 1996) that stated: “Though they seem magical in their ability to heal, magnets are not magic. Their function is very simple. Magnetotherapy helps the body to regain its self-healing electromagnetic balance naturally because each organ and each cell of every organ in the body is influenced by electromagnetism. Cell regulation, tissue function and life are controlled by electromagnetic currents.
In Dr. Nakagawa’s classic study,Magnetic Deficiency Syndrome, he outlined that lack of magnetism may cause stress, mental disorders, headaches, arthritis, muscle pain, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue, allergies, insomnia, inflammation, circulatory problems, bowel disorders and other degenerative problems afflicting people today. In the search for a universal cure-all, none fit the description nearly as well as magnetic energy therapy. The application of magnetic energy offers proven pain relief in seven out of ten users, as good as or better than "orthodox" medicine. Magnetotherapy is far less expensive and lacks the dangerous side effects often associated with prescription drugs. However, proper advice and care should be taken when using strong, large magnets about the head. Treatment with magnets is not addictive and does not interfere with other therapies, but should not be used if a pacemaker or defibrillator is worn.
Researchers have stated that magnetic field therapy rebalances altered metabolic functions that cause pain, edema (tissue swelling), excess acid in the tissues, and lack of oxygen in the cells, thereby initiating tissue healing and pain relief. Skin calcification, the cause of skin aging and wrinkles, disappears. Joint mobility increases and muscles become more flexible. Digestion improves, prostates shrink and kidneys eliminate body wastes more effectively. Mental function increases, energy levels go up and sleep is better. Tests have even shown that organisms placed under a magnetic field live longer.
Because it potentates the body's free radical scavenger and antioxidant system, magnetotherapy is reported to be valuable in counteracting degenerative processes causing heart and circulatory disease, arthritis and auto-immune illness, as well as neuro-degenerative and allergic afflictions.
Drinking magnetic water is said to impart many similar benefits. Wearing back, neck or joint supports with permanent magnets imbedded in the material often relieves painful conditions.
Treatment of discomfort from strains and arthritis with low frequency, pulsating magnetic fields created by tiny portable devices may be as effective as larger ultrasound units.
Stress causes hundreds of diseases but can be tempered by using magnets day or night. Nighttime magnetic field therapy has a calming and sleep inducing effect on the brain and body due to stimulating production of melatonin, an anti-stressful, anti-aging and anti-infectious hormone. Sleeping on a North Pole magnetic mattress pads can improve the quality of sleep and eliminate morning stiffness.
Magneto-therapy may often be used as a first line treatment for pain and to promote healing, not to suggest that there is no place for standard prescription drugs. Many distressing conditions yield to magnetics, but if magnets don’t help, it’s important that you visit your doctor.”

Dr. J.B. Baron MD: This is a revolution in the therapy of muscle injuries, joint pain, and posture problems. We have treated 3950 patients with whiplash injuries by means of the magnet and cured 80 percent of them.
The First Congress in Magnetotherapy organized by the Coghill Research Laboratories was held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, England in May 1996. The proceedings introduced over 50 studies and research reports on magnetic therapies, the majority of which were very positive. For example three doctors from Croatia published an outstanding report outlining the treatment of 1261 patients in a rehabilitation hospital using PMF therapy.
Eastern-Bloc countries have traditionally researched magnetic therapy much more vigorously than the West. Many of the studies presented at the First Congress in Magneto-therapy originated in countries where magnetic therapy was seen as an economical option to drug therapy.
