History of Magnetism Throughout the Ages

Throughout the medical exploration of health, inner balance (qi),
and youth;
magnetism, found naturally in the lodestone, has been
studied & practiced by ancients from all of the highest civilizations:

  • the ancient Egyptians (Avicenna [980-1037 AD] used for poison cures,
    Cleopatra used it for youth properties)
  • the Chinese (The Yellow Emperors Canon of Internal Medicine)
  • India (in the Vedas, in Hindu writings by Sucruta [600 BC])
  • Greeks (Aristotle; Galen of Pergamum [129-199 AD] used for drawing out impurities
    and poisons; Hippocrates of Cos used the styptic iron oxides magnetite and hematite
    to stop bleeding and control hemorrhage); Aetius of Amida Byzantine [550-600 AD]
    treatment of hysteria, gout, spasm.)
  • in Hebrew Writings
  • throughout Persian History
  • the Arab World
  • in Japan (mainstream)
  • in Europe: Some of the Greats Experimenting with Magnetism;
  • Britain (Gilbert, Mesmer [1770], Dr. John Birch [1812])
  • Swiss Philippus T. Paracelsus von Hohenheim [1530]
    Otto Haab [1892] ophthalmologist uses)
  • Demark (Orsted and Reymond [1850s])
  • Germany (Dr. Kreft [1905]; Albertus Magnus [1193-1280] referred as the
    greatest German philosopher & theologian of the Middle Ages used
    milk/magnetite mixture for edema; Dr. Samuel Hahnemann - the father
    of homeopathy [1840]; Hirschberg [1880] ophthalmologist uses)
  • Sweden (Dr. Ivan Troeng [1950]; Prof. Bjorn Nordenstrom [1983])
  • Italy (Galvani [1780] & Alessandro Volta [1800], Pliny the Elder [23-79AD]
    treated burns with pulverized magnets)
  • the Royal Society of Medicine in France
  • and in the US from Ben Franklin to NASA; the most powerful modern
    diagnostic methods [PET, MRI], new ex-vivo application using magnetic
    microspheres and nanoparticles; ; modern IUDs; to mention a few.

The Healthful Benefits of Magnetism

How Magnetic Therapy is Beneficial to the Human Body

Magnetic fields upon the body help to energize and boost the rate of
; stimulating nutrient rich blood flow thus invigorating
your metabolism by oxygenating the organs providing muscle and
tissue more oxygen for mental and physical vigor while accelerating
the ridding of body wastes, flushing out unwanted toxins, releasing
more endorphins,
the body's natural pain killers promoting repair
and stimulating faster healing; improving the bodies anti-infective
activity and enhancing immunity; normalizes endocrine production
by helping to regulate and balance endocrine functions; affecting
enzyme production for reducing swelling, stiffness and the acidity
from wounds helping in reducing inflammation; stimulating colla-
gen density in and around joints proven in studies to heal bones &
joints faster
, to help alleviate chronic pain and invigorate
overall well-being.

Wounds and painful areas of the body are marked by a lack of
oxygen, off pH & poor circulation. It is believed that magnetic
stimulation helps with the normalization of calcium ion flow
which control the attraction of calcium ions to help heal broken
bones or help to remove calcium build-up from painful arthritic
joints. The acid / alkaline [pH] balance of body fluids can be
altered by magnetic fields; magnetic fields also alter enzyme
activity & biochemical processes with the lower frequencies
relieving pain, inflammation and bruising, using the higher
frequencies for the relaxing of blood vessels allowing increased
blood flow for a boost to your natural healing abilities. A
negative magnetic field is used to normalize disturbed metabolic
functions causing painful conditions like inflammation and cell
degeneration. Magnetic fields put directly on top of the head has
been proven to have a calming effect.

Magnetism is an all natural choice and tool whose forces penetrate
into the channels and collaterality of the body to help regulate its
physiological functions. Magnetic fields affect the relaxation and
constriction of capillary blood vessels affecting blood flow; as
proven by studies about blood microcirculation.

The ore hematite stimulates the kidneys to purify the blood, reducing
body temperature and drawing fever from the forehead. The iron ore
in magnetic hematite stimulates tissue regeneration, boosting the
immune system to improve overall health.

Keep a chart of reflexology acupressure [Shiatsu] points to know
where the most effective placement are for your ailments. Example:
wear your magnetic bracelet on your left wrist for back pain being
the acupressure points for the spine are nearby. Wear your bracelet
on your right wrist if you have gastrointestinal problems.

The North [positive] pole of a magnet has a calming & relaxing
on the body; while the South pole [negative] has
an activating and stimulating result

Used by Cleopatra to help retain her physical youth; toxins
accumulating in your body causes the acceleration of the aging
process and throughout the ages magnetism has proved anti-aging
effects by progressively eliminating toxins - slowing down the
aging process.

Did you know? Drinking magnetized water is a way to reap the
benefits of magnetic energy. Magnetized water is calming to the body.
Place an 8 ounce glass of water upon the negative pole of a magnet
for at least five minutes & drink twice daily as general preventative.

Illnesses Having Positive Effects by Magnetic Therapy

Health dysfunctions people have stated having good results using
magnetic therapy
to gain relief from the many uncomfortable side
effects of:

Arthritis including Rheumatoid & Osteoarthritis; Osteoporosis;
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome; Bursitis; Tendonitis; common uses
for Body Aches, Backaches and/or generalized Back Pain;
abating Sciatica Disc Disease, Lumbar Spondylitis; Stress &
Depression; Insomnia; Acne; helps Asthma; High Blood Pres-
fighting Chronic Fatigue, Lupus and Raynauds;
Fibromyalgia; Sports Injuries as frozen Shoulder, Tennis
Elbow, Achilles Tendon, Tendonitis, Sprains, Torn Ligaments,
typical Muscular Pain/Cramps/Spasms; studies have proven
magnets speed up the healing of broken bones; Plantar
fascitis; Foot Pain from Heel Spurs and Bunions; Dermatitis;
TMJ; Dermatitis; Menstrual Cramps; Headaches & Migraines;
Sinutitis; provides relief from Multiple Sclerosis, and
Diabetics suffering
with diabetic nerve damage also post-Polo
Syndrome, neuropathy & chronic Pain.


Dr. Lewis Bass, a Long Island, N.Y. specialist, says that
"The philosophy of disease and 'wellness' is based on the
premise that the rule of the artery is supreme. If proper
blood flow and nerve innervation can be restored, then
body & organ function can be maximized. It is postulated
that the 'microcirculation' of body tissues may be increas-
ed by over 300% with the use of magnetic therapy."

"Good vibrant health comes from strong orchestrated inner
vibrations with open flowing channels and currents of 'qi' or
life-force; when in balance, it contains the strength of
stability within its equilibrium."
(Ancient Oriental Therapy)

Within the last ten years the use of Magnetic Therapy has
achieved mainstream acknowledgment, with a worldwide
industry of high-tech quality and a growing following
throughout the modern World.

Magnetism By Definition

Magnetism by definition is a physical phenomenon produced by the
motion of electric charge, resulting in attractive and repulsive
forces between objects. In magnets, the geophysical magnetic lines
exit out of the North (Negative) flow around and re-enter the South
(Positive) flowing inside from the South back to the North.

The Science Behind Magnetism

Scientifically speaking: Magnetism is intimately linked with
electricity, in that a magnetic field is established whenever
electric charges are in motion, as in the flow of electrons in
a wire, or the movement of electrons around an atomic nucleus.
In atoms, this invisible field consists of closed loops called
lines of force that surround & run through the atom. Magnetic
regions where lines of force come together densely are called
north and south poles. In substances in which the magnetic fields
of each atom are aligned, the magnetic field causes the entire
substance to act like single magnet, with north & south poles
and a surrounding magnetic field. Permanent magnets are made of
substances that retain this alignment. Cut a magnet in two, each
separate piece become a magnet with two poles, and so on.
Electromagnets are a coil of wire wrapped around an iron core &
can be made magnetic by running electric current through it; the
looping electrons then create a magnetic field, the same way as
spinning electrons in individual atoms. As long as current flows,
the coil remains magnetized.and is used in many devices such as
doorbells & switches.

Ferrites are usually non-conductive ferrimagnetic ceramic compounds
derived from iron oxides such as hematite or magnetite as well as
oxides of other metals. Ferrites are classified as "soft" and "hard"
referring to their low or high magnetic coercivity [resistance to
demagnetizing.] We are dealing with "hard" ferrite ceramic magnets
composed of iron, barium or strontium oxide compounds with high
coercivity, conducts magnetic flux well and have high magnetic
permeability endowed with the ability to store stronger magnetic
fields than iron itself.

Magnetic Bead: Process of Manufacturing

magnetic manufacturing process

This chart shows the manufacturing process of magnets from the
Ningbo Yili Magnetic Co. in China.

Magnet Types:

There are Isotropic Magnets; where magnetic properties are equal in
all directions. There are Anisotropic Magnets which have a preferred
direction of magnetic orientation where its magnetic characteristics
are optimum in one preferred direction also called unipole or uni-
. Our beads are unidirectional, producing fields flowing
only from the north to the south providing your body with maximum
therapeutic benefits. Unidirectional magnets are most effective in
increasing circulation and oxygen levels.


Ferrites are produced by heating a mixture of powdered precursors
pressed into a mold where calcination occurs. This mixture of oxides
undergoes sintering or high temperature firing. The cooled product
is milled into tiny particles of powder which is pressed into a shape,
dried and re-sintered inside an external magnetic field to achieve a
preferred orientation [anisotropy]. Lower grade include dry pressing,
direct calcination and sintering without re-milling leading to poor
magnetic properties. We only use the highest quality magnetic beads.

Scientific Magnetic Studies

A 2004 study published by the British Medical Journal reported
six medical researchers on the effects of magnets on arthritis
pain found that the subjects wearing magnetic bracelets reported
less pain than the ones wearing placebos. Magnetic therapy seemed
to calm the muscle, joint and bone pain and contributed to the
patients well-being. Preformed on 194 patients in Devon, England.
Our bodies, being over 70% water, are magnetically conducive,
offering little resistance and easily penetrated; try this
experiment, hold a strong magnet on one side of your hand and
see it effect a compass needle across your hand. It has also
been found that tissue exposed to magnetism holds onto the
magnetic properties for some time after.
The Japanese Ministry of Health & Welfare suggest a minimum
strength of 500 gauss for chronic illnesses.
According to the Magnetic Therapy Council, poor circulation can
cause cold extremities affecting the hands, wrists, fingers, feet
and legs; magnetic therapy stimulating blood flow fighting white
fingers, coldness, muscles cramps, dizziness, migraines and numbness.
According to the National Center for Complementary & Alternative
Medicine, magnetic therapy may help chronic problems by increasing
circulation and helping the body to heal itself. Magnets might have
the ability to attract & repulse blood particles, boosting blood
circulation with increased oxygen and nutrients to painful areas.
Magnets also may help with decreasing inflammation and cell
degeneration, reducing chronic pain.
Albert Roy Davis, Ph.D. in 1974 studied cancer in animals and found
that magnets could kill cancerous cells. Research has not proven
that this works on human patients but many doctors use magnetic
therapy along with regular cancer treatments.
April 1999 'Archives of General Psychiatry' at Techion-Isreal
Institute of Technology found applying magnetic therapy to the
brain helps relieve severe depression.
March 1, 1999 Daniel Trecroci's article on the Diabetes Health
website founded a practice sewing magnets into clothing was
effective in relieving diabetic pain.
Magnetic bracelets can stimulate electrical pathways in the brain
regulating the hormone production & levels; especially serotonin &
melatonin. Stabilized levels help with migraines, depression, stress
and insomnia. Magnetic bracelets can help to prevent headaches
and make them less severe while providing natural pain relief with
a boosted sense of euphoria.
