References and Research

Albert Roy Davis and Walter C. Rawls (1) developed the biomagnetic convention of designating the separate poles of a magnet. Using this, the end of a freely suspended bar magnet that ends up pointing in a northerly direction is designated as the biomagnetic south pole (-) since opposites attract. Conversely, the end of the magnet that points more or less south is called the biomagnetic north pole (+).

"Robert O. Becker, M.D., (2) added a valuable prospective for the more prolonged use of negative - (north pole seeking) magnetic energy. He isolated the evidence that initially any injury registers electromagnetic positive + (south pole seeking) whether this is a cut, bruise, or broken bone. In the case of a broken bone, the broken area registers electromagnetic positive for about 3 hours and then it becomes electromagnetic negative. He found that during the healing process, the body concentrates electromagnetic negative energy at the site of injury and it is only when this is present that healing can occur."

C. S. Brown, et. al.(3) in their research on Chronic Pelvic Pain found a significant reduction of pain was related to duration of exposure to static magnets placed on trigger points in the pelvic region.

C. Vallbona et. al. (4) "The application of a device delivering static magnetic fields placed over a pain trigger point results in significant and prompt pain relief of pain in post polio subjects."

M. Weintraub (5) found that there was a 60% statistical reduction of pain and 100% elimination of burning foot syndrome in diabetic patients who used static magnetics.

According to E. Israeli et. al. (6) "From the experiments conducted so far, mostly in the 10,000 gauss range, it seems as though the magnetic field causes an intensification of the entire tissue, a thickening of the collagen fibers and as a result of this, an over-all increase in the collagen density." However he stated more research needs to be done.

And a very significant contribution by M. J. Smith et. al. (7)  who stated that  a magnetic field of greater than 12,000 gauss is needed to effect  intercellular enzymatic production in vitro.
