Arizona Unipole Magnetics / AUM would first like to make it clear that magnets Do Not Heal anything, they simply have shown great potential in helping the body to heal itself. The skeptics and paid opponents of magnet therapy refuse to recognize the FDA qualified research such as "The Magnetic Resonance Therapeutic Research Project" conducted by Linus Pauling Award recipient William H. Philpott, M.D. which spanned 23 consecutive years. This well documented research resulted in Dr Philpott writing 40 detailed Magnetic Health Quarterly research reports that include observations, case histories, and the magnetic research protocols that he prescribed for the management and reversal of over 120 diseases and major medical conditions. The polarities of magnets (positive and negative) have been scientifically shown to have completely opposite effects on biological systems. Yet the opponents of magnetic therapy refuse to concede that these known properties have any relevance. But DR Philpott has concluded that the effects of opposite magnetic fields to the biological system are as opposite as night and day.
Effects of Magnetic Energy on Living Metabolic Systems
William H. Philpott, M.D states in his Biomagnetic Handbook (copyright 1990) "The application of both a positive and negative magnetic field at the same time in the same area does not serve a useful purpose."
The following chart from the "Biomagnetic Handbook" by DR Philpott (no longer in print) is compiled from other researchers writings such as Robert O. Becker, as well as his own observations.
( - ) Negative magnetic field energy:
Increases cellular oxygen *
Pulls fluids & gases
Reduces fluid retention
Encourages deep restorative sleep
Promotes mental acuity
supports biological healing
Normalizes acid base balance
Reduces/dissolves fatty deposits
Reduces dissolves calcium deposits
( + ) Positive magnetic field energy:
Decreases cellular oxygen *
Pushes fluids & gases
Increases intracellular edema
Accelerates micro-organism growth
Inhibits biological healing
Can increase inflammation
pH level becomes more acidic
Encourages fat depositing
* Indirect evidence
Characteristically negative field magnetic energy calms and normalizes metabolic function, while positive field magnetic energy disorders and overstimulates the biological system. Micro-organisms and parasites (including those harboured in the human) overgrow with positive magnetic energy exposure and are inhibited by negative magnetic pole exposure.
