Understanding Magnets, Their Uses For Health and
Who May Benefit From Them
"Understanding the Principles of Magnetic
Therapy" by Jack Lyon (edited)
What Is A Magnet
A magnet is any stone, metal or substance that can
attract or repel various "ferrous" (magnetic like)
materials. Any example of metals that are not attracted to magnets
are those such as stainless steel and titanium. The magnetic
energy does not even "see" the metal and passes through it
much the same as it does any plastic, fiber or skin. It is
critical in using magnets for health purposes to make sure which pole is
which with a magnet. Magnets may not be marked correctly.
Just remember that when we refer to the "north pole" of a
magnet that we are referring to the "bio-north", which is also
known as the "south seeking" pole. (As opposites
attract, the pole that seeks the south is in fact the north pole).
The History And Future of Magnetic Usage
In a recent study, it was discovered that over 60,000
people die every year from prescription drug reactions.
Considering many of these prescriptions were for non life threatening
diseases, it truly makes us wonder why these toxic drugs are so quickly
considered to be the standard first line defense to heal everything.
have been used for treatment well before the times of ancient
Greece. In the first century, magnets began to be discussed as a
true healing energy. By the late 1700's studies were commenced to
learn the truth about magnets. These studies concluded that the
magnet would play as large a role in medicine as it does now in
physics. Why has it not played a larger role despite obvious
benefits and successes? My personal opinion is that because it is
not possible to patent magnetic energy, companies that are willing to do
extensive research in return for long term product studies are unable to
be compensated for their efforts so they stick to drug research.
As a result of this, countries with little money to spend on medical
care, turn to therapies such as magnets much more quickly. Finally
in the early 1900's, serious headway was made with the discovery of true
understanding of the differences in each side of the magnet, or magnetic
poles. William Rwals and Albert Roy Davis made this discovery
quite by accident which then led to decades of valuable research.
They proved beyond any doubt the unique difference of each magnetic pole
and the different effects each has on the body.
acts as a huge magnet, with a north and south pole on each end and an
energy close to the north pole of a magnet emanating throughout the bulk
of the earth from the inner magnetic core. Scientists have
established through carbon dating methods that the Earth's magnetic
field is continually decreasing by as much as 50% in the last 500 years,
and 5% in just the last 100. Dr. Nakagawa of Japan believes that
we are all suffering form different levels of magnetic deficiency
syndrome which is responsible for creating the need to keep good health
through the use of magnets in the form of Magnetic mattress pads,
etc. Magnetic energy from magnetic therapy magnets provide
additional energy to each cell. This helps the body in its healing
process, alleviating the need for the body to deplete its own energy
Magnets - Complementary Health Products
Health Products should be considered a complement to all forms of health
treatment. If a treatment from any health practitioner is safe and
effective, consider using magnets as an effective part of this
therapy. Everyone from medical doctors, physical therapists,
chiropractors, kinesiologists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, massage
therapists, reflexologists, homeopathic doctors, plastic surgeons and
many more. Allow magnets to be used to improve the efficient usage
of herbs, vitamins, minerals and even prescription drugs. Everyone
should make their own decision and determination as to when to use
magnets or when not to.
Considerations when using magnets
for therapy or health:
1. Do not use magnetic therapy
2. Do not use magnets anywhere near a
3. Do not rely on magnets solely as a
"cure all". Rather, use them as a part of an overall
approach to good health that includes proper nutrition, water, exercise
and the avoidance of overly acidic foods and toxins.
Avoid sleeping over 10 hours per night on a strong north pole mattress
pad on a regular basis as over alkalization of the body can occur.
Wait one hour after eating, before placing strong magnets over the
stomach area as digestion may be slowed. This should not interfere
with the commonly practiced method of using magnets for an acid stomach.
Reconsider all other treatments when using magnets, as the magnets can
treat the entire body as in the case of magnetized water and mattress
pad, making the body's functions more efficient possibly reducing the
amount of drugs and other supplements needed.
7. Do not
use south pole, alternating (bi-polar) or "natural" magnetism
in the presence of infection, inflammation, tumors, etc.
Avoid continuous (24 hours - every day) magnetic exposure except when
using the north pole to treat areas of injury, disease or illness.
accepted precautions when handling magnets.
1. Do not
drop magnets as this can cause a weakening of the magnetic strength.
Do not store magnets over 400 degrees F, or 250 degrees F for high
powered and rare earth magnets.
3. When possible, store
magnets of different strength away from each other. This is
especially important when dealing with magnets of very different
strengths such as a flexible magnet and a high powered magnet as some
transfer of energy may occur.
4. Do not store magnets for
extended periods of time in direct contact with ferrous metal as this
can gradually deteriorate a magnet.
5. Keep magnets away
from the magnetic strip of credit cards, audio tapes, video tapes,
computer disks and any type of encoded magnetic media.
