The magnetic bed may be useful in cases of depression.
Depression, anxiety and panic are all likely to be helped by raising melatonin (See Pineal Gland and Sleep). Method II) by sleeping with the negative magnetic energy at the top of the
head. In addiition trial placements of magnets should be used to achieve maximum relief such as Bitemporal Placement, CVS, and Nightly Routine. Also refer to Emotional Disorders.
Depressives also often benefit by supplementation of L-tyrosine 500 mg 3 times a day and niacinamide 500-1,500 mg at bedtime or niacin 100-500 mg 3 times daily.
Some depressives require 1) therapeutic bright light applied to the eyes for a few minutes at the beginning of each day, and/or 2) several minutes of vigorous motor exercise each AM for
arousal and energy initiating effect. In addition some depressives also require mid-day 30-60 minutes of sleep in a dark room with negative magnetic energy at the top of the head followed by application of bright light, an exercise period and 500 mg L-taurine and 500 mg L-Taurine at bedtime. [end]
