are several solid theories about how the interaction of magnetic
fields with the body heal and provide relief from pain. The
primary basis of these theories relates to the fact that the
earth's magnetic field has a significant impact on all living
things and that life itself is dependent on magnetic energy.
A striking example of this connection was discovered by NASA.
The first astronauts to orbit earth outside of the earth's
magnetic field returned home sick and weakened. NASA scientists
discovered their illness was caused by a lack of magnetism
and solved the problem by placing magnets in spacecraft and
affects the human body through the circulatory system, the
nervous system, and the endocrine system. It is constantly
penetrating all particles, right down to the atom. Magnetism's
ordering effect on living systems arises from the fact that
magnetism is a blueprint of life itself. Recent research indicates
that magnetism has a very significant biological effect on
the human body. Following is a list of the processes believed
to take place when the body is exposed to magnetic fields
which contribute to pain relief and improved health.
- Magnetism increases the electrical conductivity of the
blood. Weak current runs through the magnetic field and
the quantity of ions is increased - the ionized blood circulating
throughout the body improves the efficiency of blood flow,
as well as stabilizing blood pressure
Blood contains iron, or ferrous hemoglobin, which is a carrier
of oxygen and carbon dioxide. As blood circulates through
the lungs, fully magnetized ferrous hemoglobin is able to
carry more oxygen to cell tissue as well as take more carbon
dioxide waste from cells back to the lungs for removal.
- When tissue is exposed to a magnetic field, a secondary
current is created around the flux lines in the cells. This
ionizes the protoplasm and energies the cell tissue by activating
cell metabolism. Cell functions are strengthened as the
cell metabolism responds to the electrical currents initiated
by the magnetic field. This current can cause muscle spasms
to decrease, as well as decreasing inflammation of tissue.
The increase in the cell metabolism aids both new cell growth
and cell regeneration.
- The negative pole energy of a magnetic field interferes
with the ability of nerve cells to transmit pain impulses
to the brain where the pain is registered. When a negative
magnetic field is placed over a nerve, the positively charged
ions of the nerve impulse are attracted to the negative
magnetic field, thereby impeding the flow of the positively
charged ions through the nerves to the brain.
- Magnetism may work to regulate and/or normalize hormone
secretion in the glands. A theory is that the increased
electrical current being produced by a magnet forms a 'net'
around the glands and secretory ducts. Increased concentration
of oxygen stimulates production while the 'net' optimizes
secretion. Normalizing the hormone functions within the
body affects conditions caused by a hormone imbalance. Hormones
are an important factor in rejuvenation and overall energy
levels, while proper circulation ensures that hormone levels
are distributed evenly through out the body.
