Magnet Therapy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Magnet therapy, magnetic therapy, magnetotherapy or magnotherapy is a complementary and alternative medicine practice involving the use of static magnetic fields. Practitioners claim that subjecting certain parts of the body to magnetostatic fields produced by permanent magnets has beneficial health effects. Magnet therapy is considered pseudoscientific due to both physical and biological implausibility, as well as a lack of any established effect on health or healing. Although hemoglobin, the blood protein that carries oxygen, is weakly diamagnetic and is repulsed by magnetic fields, the magnets used in magnetic therapy are many orders of magnitude too weak to have any measurable effect on blood flow.

Magnetic Therapy is a science as well as an art, postulating knowledge of human organisms and the expertise to cure through the appropriate application of magnets. This alternative branch of medicine, also known as Magnet therapy, Bio magnet therapy, or Magnotherapy, is evidently, far-reaching in terms of possibilities in physical as well as mental disorder treatment through exposure to the magnetic fields.

Magnets designed specifically for human applications contain the power to interact with the energy system of the body, in order to create a distinct field for efficient cellular and hence organic activities. Be it localised or generalized application of magnets, the outcome tends to be visible on the basic functioning of cells, and is thereby reasoned to be effective. Two theories are used to elucidate the Magnetic Therapy.

The history of Magnetic therapy depicts that this particular therapy possesses an ancient heritage and has occupied a central role in the medicinal practices of Egypt, India and Greece. Until recently the scientific explanation of magnetic action was not available. Magnetic therapy utilizes the natural energy of magnetism that is important to human existence and overall health. Magnetic therapy is widely used in the sections of alternative medicines since the ancient times in India when the latest ways of treatment were not available. In some ancient scriptures of India, the mention of Magnet therapy was found. In Atharva Veda, there was the mention of Magnet therapy as the practitioners of Ayurveda suggested it as the best way to alleviate pains and rejuvenate the body and mind.

The primary theory asserts that, magnets affect the electrical current in cells. When magnets are functional on the afflictive region of the body, the nerves in that area stimulate, thus discharging the body`s innate painkillers. This is responsible for the application of magnets for pain relief.

According to the secondary, but equally relevant magnetic therapy theory, when magnets are applied to a painful area of the body, the cells in that area respond to increased blood circulation, ion exchange, and oxygen flow to the area. Magnetic fields attract and repel charged particles in the bloodstream, thus increasing blood flow and producing heat. Increased oxygen in the tissues and blood stream is considered to create a significant difference in the pace of healing.

This branch, although widely popular and widespread in the modern world, is subject to incessant scrutiny, observations, experimentation, ardent followership and skepticism. Magnet therapy has ventured into the fields of physical disorders like cancer treatment, and mental disorders like depression, where path-breaking research continues till date.

All sciences require to be mastered in order to harness them for the benefit of mankind; and the science of magnetic healing is no exception to the rule. Although sheer skepticism and faith in healing go hand in hand, millions of people are yet continuing the experiments with the science on a personal level, with the aid magnotherapists and extensively available commercial magnetic products.

Magnetic therapy is a safe, non-invasive method of applying magnetic fields to the body for therapeutic purposes. It accelerates the natural healing process, provides natural pain relief, relief from arthritis-induced pain and betters sleep, without any adverse side- effects. It has elevated hopes; even where advanced drug therapies have failed.

The results of Magnetic therapy vary from person to person depending on the quality of Magnets used, duration of use and the mode of application. Magnetic therapy would be ineffective, if not followed appropriately. The astonishing pain relief and calming effect it provides, has by and large, facilitated in boosting its popularity to greater extent.


The modern science reciprocate that Magnet therapy is effective in all kind of diseases including circulatory, digestive, nervous, respiratory and urinogenital systems and can be beneficial in all types of pain, swelling, inflammation, ulcers and diseases of the bowels and the uterus. Since the modern science has accepted the efficacy of magnet in treating diseases that causes pain and bring proper alleviation, this very ancient Magnet therapy has been admitted and included into the list of modern treating technologies. Magnetic therapy is used to treat headaches and migraines, insomnia, muscle and joint pain, varicose veins and other ailments of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.

It has been observed that when an area of the body is injured, positive ions flood the area, causing pain and swelling. Magnetic therapy causes the positive ions to flee the affected area and allows the body to return to its normal negative state. This allows an increase in circulation and oxygen flow to the injured area, thus promoting the benefits of natural healing. Treating with magnetic therapy privileges the patients to get proper healing without the use of traditional medication and promotion of natural body function. Though magnetic therapy is useful in almost all diseases related to skin, pain and inflammation, blood pressure, back muscle pain or sprained knee, carpel tunnel syndrome in the wrist, sinus inflammation and even headaches, hair and other diseases, it takes a considerable amount of time to cure depending on the severity of the disease. This therapy not only pertains to human beings, but to animals as well. As a matter of fact, several rodeo horses undergo magnetic effects for their superlative performance. Hence, such is the impact and scope of Magnetic therapy these days.

As magnetic therapy is applied and used in almost all over the world, some jewellery professionals are keen in creating ornaments and different devices like wristlet, chains, necklace, back belts, ace bandages or athletic support bandages worn on the back, knee or elbow which are designed with special magnets to delivery proper magnetic therapy to the injured part of the body.

What is Bio-Magnetic Water?

Water is paramagnetic – meaning that it will hold a magnetic charge.  In nature, the earth’s magnetic field naturally charges water in lakes, wells, and running streams. However, as water passes through treatment plants and is transported through pipes to your home or work place, it loses its magnetic charge.  Treating water with magnetic fields simple restores the natural energy and balance that nature intended. Magnetized water has more hydroxyl (OH-) ions that form alkaline molecules which reduces the acidity.  Normal tap water has a pH of about 7. Magnetized water is more alkaline and can have a pH as high as 9.2.  Magnetizing water reduces the surface tension of the water making it feel softer.  It is thinner, wetter, and more absorbable, so it is better able to penetrate cell walls and deliver the nutrients that it carries.

Health Benefits

Your body is over 70% water. All biological functions including circulation, digestion, absorption, and excretion depend on water.  Water is required for blood, the lymphatic system, and healthy skin and muscles.  It is well known among health professionals that when you are sick, the pH of your body is more acidic.  Magnetized water, which is more alkaline, raises the pH of your body, which allows the body to get rid of the toxins.  Bio-magnetized water is believed to be energy-building, activating, cleansing, and detoxifying.  People have reported resolving bladder problems, recovering quickly from a stroke, alleviating arthritis pain, reducing blood pressure, and breaking up kidney and gall stones by drinking magnetic water.  Scientific studies have proven that magnetized water has health benefits for animals.  Therefore it seems reasonable that it should also be beneficial for humans.  Reported health benefits of drinking magnetic water include:

•    Magnetic water tastes sweeter and has more clarity.
•    Magnetic water reduces acidity in the body and promotes a more alkaline pH.
•    Magnetic water promotes healing of wounds and burns.
•    Magnetic water has a therapeutic effect of digestive, nervous, and urinary systems.
•    Magnetic water can be beneficial for asthma, fevers, colds, coughs, bronchitis, and sore throats.
•    Magnetic water can be beneficial for menstrual and menopause discomfort.
•    Magnetic water revitalized the body.
•    Magnetic water has a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system.
•    Magnetic water can help regulate the heart function and clear clogged arteries.
•    Magnetic water is beneficial for kidney ailments (removal and prevention of stones), gout, obesity (it
     improves metabolic activity), and premature aging.
•    Magnetic water helps relieve pain.
•    Magnetic water infuses energy into the body, controls bacteria, and stimulates brain function.
•    Magnetic water can help dissipate toxic deposits in the body’s connective tissue.
•    Magnetic water can regulate blood pressure (high or low).
•    Magnetic water can be used to wash and disinfect external cuts and scrapes.
•    Magnetic water will remove the plaque on your teeth if you use it to brush your teeth, rinse your mouth,
     and drink.
•    Magnetic water will make your hair softer and more manageable while using less shampoo when used to
     wash your hair.
•    Magnetic water is ionic so it helps reset the charge on cell walls, thus promoteing better circulation.


Your pets will enjoy many of the same benefits from bio-magnetic water that you do. They will drink more water, have more energy, and feel younger and healthier. A friend was giving her dogs magnetic water. When she moved, she temporarily had to give them tap water. After a few days, they began scratching all the time.  When she started them back on bio-magnetic water, the scratching stopped almost completely.


Bio-Magnetized water will help your plants grow stronger, greener, and larger.  In one study seedlings’ germination rates were 68 % with bio-magnetized water, while with non-magnetized water only 8% germinated.  In another study, Texas A&M researchers found that squash weighed 24% more when it was grown with magnetized water vs. non-magnetized water.  Bio-magnetic water is more solvent and has a lower surface tension, so nutrients in the water are absorbed more readily.  Thus you get a healthier plant while using less fertilizer.

Other Fluids & Uses

Almost any fluid can be magnetized.  Using Bio-Magnetic Water will drastically improve the taste of coffee, tea, and foods.  Foods and beverages made using magnetic water will acquire the same healing powers as bio-magnetic water.  Cosmetics, facial and skin products function a lot better when magnetized.  Magnetized milk will give vigor and vitality to the weak and exhausted person.  Magnetized milk has been proven useful for recuperating and enhancing sexual power.  When fruit juices are treated with bio-magnets, they become more refreshing and give more nourishment.  Beer can be magnetized to give better effect.  Magnetized olive oil can be very rewarding in the treatment of gout and rheumatism.

Use bio-magnetic water to make your coffee and after a month or two the inside of your coffee maker will look like new.  The bio-magnetic water will remove the scale build-up in your coffee maker.

Restore your body's balance

As we saw earlier, disease causes your body’s acid-alkaline balance (pH) to become overly acidic. Drinking biomagnetized, alkaline water may help to restore your body’s pH balance. Water’s pH is improved by magnetism. Non-magnetized water measures about 7 pH. While biomagnetized water measures about 8-9 pH.

As water flows naturally through underground streams, it often flows over magnetic rocks. These rocks transfer a magnetic charge to the water. But, when the water runs through the metal pipes into a home, it loses its magnetic charge. Even if you have plastic pipes, adding extra magnetic energy to your water is beneficial.


The solution to re-energize the water is simple. Simply place several high-power biomagnets on your water intake pipe. As the water runs through it, it will receive the energy. Your body will take all the magnetic energy it can get, whether directly from biomagnets or indirectly from biomagnetized water. You can drink several glasses of biomagnetized water daily. Be patient to wait several weeks or months before you feel your body improving.

Many businesses have testified of dissolving calcium deposits from their water pipes after installing magnets. The calcium deposits that clog water pipes are very similar to the calcium deposits that clog human arteries, resulting in heart disease. Why not protect your heart’s “pipes” from calcium deposits by drinking biomagnetic water? Please see the testimonies about magnets and heart disease in the next page.
