IN MAGNETIC HEALING
With a history dating back thousands of years, magnetic healing is hardly a fad! In more modern times (the 1800's), there were many medical magnetic devices patented which would indicate there were some success rates involved, even though scientifically it was not understood. The 20th Century heralded the beginning of a chemical approach to healing with tremendous advances being made. The focus shifted and other modalities faded from popularity for a time.
The current explosion of multi-faceted research is including magnetism. It is not just "that it works" that is questioned, but "how it works"…and considerable confusion remains magnetic applications. Lack of research funding for non-chemical studies is a limiting factor. However, some universities are starting to do magnetic studies which is a necessary basic to recognition as an accepted treatment by medical practitioners.
We have a critical need of environmental magnetism from the earth, but the geomagnetic field is drastically depleted from thousands of years ago. This deficiency state undoubtedly explains why people respond so well to magnetism.
It is a principle of physics that if the magnetic field in which an atom exists is increased. The velocity of the electrons and protons will increase or decrease depending on the direction of the magnetic field and the orbits of the particles.The key to this activity is the direction of magnetic field.
Because of the important body revitalization and rebuilding that occurs during sleep, a supplemental uni-directional magnetic field like the earth's is what will best give extra zing to those electrons of yours at the right time and in the right direction. It is hard to improve on nature.
This unidirectional energy supplementation is basic to whole body wellness. It provides an energy catalyst to body functioning and resonance at the cellular level. Sleep is about restoring and rebuilding body tissues, and bed is the spot we are in at the exact critical time needed. However, all sleep pads do not duplicate an earth-type field, so careful product research must be done if the results above are desired.
To be like the earth's magnetic field in North America, it must be a pure Negative(-) field that will completely pass through the body. With correct engineering, individual magnets can be placed to create a unified, unidirectional field so they act like a single magnet, yet have flexibility for movement and handling. If a pad is designed so that a person sleeps directly on the magnets, there are bi-polar fields entering their body…even if the Negative(-) side is placed facing up. There is a 'bleed-back" area around each magnet of the returning field (opposite polarity).
Up to this point, we have been discussing a whole-body, restorative approach to magnetism, which is basic to all life on this planet. The present magnet-mania movement, is generated by the use of individual magnets, or groupings of magnets, which provide bi-polar fields. These work by a stimulatory modality, which is quite different than the supplementary approach of the uni-polar action.
So besides the speeding up of electrons and protons accomplished by the Negative(-) polarity, there is a counter slowing down effect caused by the Positive(+) polarity. The body responds to this slowing down as a potential problem or emergency…sending more electromagnetic energy from the brain and more blood flow to the area where the magnet is applied. This stimulates the body's own fighting resources to focus on the problem area, all factors working together to speed the healing process. A good thing, of course!
However, long-term use of bi-polar fields does draw down on emergency reserves of vitality, so much so that the body may cease to respond to the stimulus in time. It also draws energy from other parts of the body to compensate, which detracts from a balanced energy field. Intermittent use of bi-polar applications will extend the length of effective body response.
Small button magnets can be used effectively on accupuncture points, basically because the bi-polar field creates a very similar response. A qualified skilled therapist is advisable in this area.
Individual magnet use, or the various wraps available, are usually effective in reduction of joint pain and inflammation, muscle, tendon, or bone injuries and back problems. These types of applications are not intended to be the total answer to a problem; breaks should always be set or splinted first. In general, magnets often relieve pain, and sometimes kick-start the body reserves enough to get a higher resolution of the problem. If it didn't "work", no harm was done.
But for any systemic, overall condition do not expect a miracle from a single magnet! It likely will have no effect, and may cause a time lag in getting proper diagnosis and treatment. Also, it is not recommended to self-treat an internal organ with individual magnets. Magnets never replace proper medical assessment and care. Magnets in themselves do not heal-they only stimulate or supplement the body's natural healing resources, depending on whether a uni-polar or bi-polar application is used.
The healing arts in the new century will definitely include exciting new applications of energies and frequencies. Our challenge will be to develop an open, learning attitude that will enable us to properly evaluate and utilize these modalities to their full potential.
