The Importance Of Polarity - Biological response to magnetic fields

Effects of Magnetic Energy on Living Metabolic Systems

Magnetic therapy authority 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 is compiled from other's research as well as his own observations.

( - ) Negative magnetic field energy:

Increases cellular oxygen *
Pulls fluids & gases
Reduces fluid retention
Encourages deep restorative sleep
Fights infection
Promotes mental acuity
Supports biological healing
Reduces inflammation
Normalizes acid base balance
Relieves/stops pain
Reduces/dissolves fatty deposits
Reduces dissolves calcium deposits

( + ) Positive magnetic field energy:

Decreases cellular oxygen *
Pushes fluids & gases
Increases intracellular edema
Stimulates wakefulness
Accelerates micro-organism growth
Inhibits biological healing
Can increase inflammation
pH level becomes more acidic
Increases pain
Encourages fat depositing

* Indirect evidence

Characteristically negative magnetic energy normalizes and calms while positive 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.
