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
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.
