THE SCIENTIFIC BASIS FOR MAGNET THERAPY
The use of magnets by
NASA BIOENERGETIC BALANCING
DR. Dale Bakhast PD.D
The natural effects of the Earth’s magnetic field are considered to play an
essential role in the health of humans and animals. When the first astronauts
returned to earth complaining of weakness, fatigue and lassitude, NASA
concluded that their symptoms resulted from the lack of a planetary magnetic
field in outer space. To resolve the problem, NASA placed magnets in the
astronauts’ space suits and space travel vehicles, and astronauts have
returned to Earth without these symptoms ever since.
In the absence of a magnetic field, the level of charge of subatomic particles
diminishes, resulting in the reduced overall charge of atoms. This process
causes nutritional elements to become depolarized, thus rendering them
almost unusable by the body. Accordingly, the biological system may develop
characteristics of imbalance and impaired function. Therefore, exposing the
body to certain magnetic fields restores the subatomic and bioenergetic
balance of the biological organism, thereby naturally alleviating many existing
health conditions.
Thousands of years ago, the Earth’s natural magnetic field had an average
strength of between 3 to 5 Gauss. In the present day of civilization, because
of construction, steel buildings etc. that field has been significantly reduced to
a measurable level of only 0.5 Gauss. In light of this fact, the need for using
corrective and balancing magnets to maintain the natural homeostasis of the
body has become more important.
NATURAL PAIN RELIEF
The phenomenon of pain, in and of itself, is essentially the transmission of
electrical signals along a path of connecting nerve cells. The signal is
transmitted from the area of injury or malfunction - the source of the pain
signal - to the brain. The nerve cells along that path of travel, when at rest,
have a charge of approximately -70 mV. The electrical pain signal, when it
reaches each nerve cell, has the effect of depolarizing that cell. The presence
of a supplemental magnetic field provides extra support for maintaining the
natural charge of the nerve cells in the area of the magnetic field. Accordingly,
therapeutic magnets raise the depolarization threshold of nerve cells, resulting
in the potentially depolarizing pain signal being blocked. Therefore, applying
therapeutic magnets to an area near the source of injury or malfunction
effectively blocks the pain. In addition, the ability of the nerve as a whole to
transmit a pain signal is generally slowed down by the presence of a magnetic
field. Because of these additional mechanics, pain relief is enhanced when a
magnet’s negative (receptive polarity) is applied to certain points related to the
pain transmitting nerve. There is no such thing as pain if the nerve
impulse doesn’t reach the brain.
TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF THERAPEUTIC VALUE OF MAGNETS
Damaged tissue has been found to emit a positive electrical charge. The
healing process can therefore be accelerated by applying the negative
receptive polarity of a therapeutic magnet to the area of injury, thus restoring
the bioenergetic balance. The mechanics of this process are that the
magnetic field causes blood vessels to dilate, thereby increasing blood
circulation to the area of injury. This serves to remove many of the natural
agents that contribute to inflammation and pain, such as bradykinens,
prostaglandins, and histamines, and also helps to more rapidly deliver healing
agents that are contained in the blood. Magnetic fields also increase the rate
of oxygenation of white corpuscles, which are an important part of the immune
system. In addition to direct bioenergetic support of the immune system,
magnetic fields also naturally lower acidity in the body, making it more difficult
for microorganisms to survive.
As a result of such effects, magnet therapy can function as an antibiotic,
eliminating many microbes, viruses, bacteria, and fungi, including strains that
may be resistant to pharmaceutical antibiotics or other drugs.
The pineal body of the brain, the organ that is responsible for production of
the hormone melatonin, is highly sensitive to electromagnetic stimuli. In fact,
the pineal body has a dual function as an electromagnetic sensory organ, and
has been found to play a significant role in dream states, altered states of
consciousness, meditation, and even extrasensory perception (ESP).
Recently, it has also been discovered that the cells of the brain themselves
contain a substance called magnetite.
Magnetite is a naturally occurring crystalline material with weak magnetic
properties, and which receives its charge from the Earth’s magnetic field. As a
result of these mechanics, applying a therapeutic magnet to the head
stimulates production of the hormone melatonin, thereby improving the quality
of sleep, balancing the person’s sleep cycle, and otherwise facilitating
relaxation and altered states of consciousness. Accordingly, therapeutic
magnets can also be effectively used to balance and overcome the effects of
"jet lag," the sudden change in time zones experienced by international
travelers.
Permanent magnets also function to generally enhance physical energy, and
vitality. The healthy functioning of cells in the body depends upon their natural
polarization, consisting of a positively charged cell nucleus and a negatively
charged outer cell membrane. As the cell performs its daily functions, it
becomes depolarized, leading to cell decay. Magnetic fields are capable of
penetrating all levels and regions of the body, and can therefore reach every
cell, supporting and recharging the natural polarity of cells. The resulting
effect is to stimulate greater physical energy, strength, and vitality throughout
the body, and even reduce and slow down and mental effects of aging.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF POLARITY
For magnets, the "north" pole is conventionally referred to as the "negative"
polarity, and the "south" pole is referred to as the "positive" polarity. In order
to more accurately distinguish the different functions that the two polarities
have, the negative polarity is called "receptive," and the positive is
called "active."
The negative (receptive) polarity of permanent magnets balances meridian
points or areas of the body that are over-stimulated, because that polarity
literally "receives" excess bioenergy from the area where the magnet is
applied. This function can be used for relieving pain, reducing swelling,
calming the nervous system, and promoting a better quality of sleep. It helps
insomnia.
The active polarity balances meridian points or areas of the body that are
under-stimulated, because that polarity literally "activates," or stimulates, by
supplying additional bioenergy to the area where the magnet is applied. This
function can be used for stimulating the immune system, or giving a person
extra physical energy to increase productivity or eliminate fatigue.
The dramatic difference of the effects and functions of the negative and
positive polarities of permanent magnets was documented in the September
1990 issue of the Journal of the National Medical Association. Most
therapeutic magnets on the market are bipolar, exposing the body to both
polarities at the same time. Such magnets rely on the theories that the
magnetic field stimulates blood flow and helps to block pain response, but
ignore the many additional benefits of the proper use of the correct polarity to
achieve different specific effects. They are totally inadequate in the relief of
the pain stimulus.
Furthermore, it is very important to recognize the difference in functions of the
receptive and active poles of therapeutic magnets. Applying the positive
polarity to an over-stimulated area such as back pain can serve to prolong or
exacerbate the symptoms. It is therefore essential to apply the appropriate
polarity to areas of pain.
Applying the negative polarity to an under-stimulated area could serve to
prolong or maintain weakness or malfunction. Therefore, the ideal therapeutic
magnet should allow the user to benefit from the bipolar field as a whole, and
also be designed to allow the user to select only one polarity or the other
when required for specific purposes.
RECOMMENDED METHODS OF USE
Therapeutic magnets are generally used by attaching them to certain regions
of the body where either symptoms or causes of illness have been identified.
They are sometimes attached by placing them underneath an elastic
bandage, or a belt containing the appropriate magnets both in proper
anatomic position and polarity. They can also be taped over a pain point using
medical tape made of a comfortable fabric.
Because of the gentle and natural effects of magnets, and the fact that they
primarily function to balance bioenergy in the body, they are completely
compatible with all methods and practices of healing, and do not interfere with
any medical treatments or procedures. For the same reasons, while
therapeutic magnets have many beneficial and healthy effects, they are not
intended to be used as a substitute for any professional medical treatment or
procedure. . .

Great info, I know that living under power lines and being exposed to different emf fields can have a negative effect on the human body.  I myself try to limit the time im on cell phones and I never use microwaves anymore, I don't think zapping our food with radiation is a good idea but like anything moderation is probably the key.
