Effect of magnetism on circulatory system
Magnetism acts on paramagnetic elements in the body, especially the blood, and it is mainly through the circulatory system that the effects of magnetism are dispersed throughout the body.

Therefore, it is important to understand how the human circulation system functions. The blood is pumped to every organ in the body. Arteries, arterioles, and capillaries carry oxygen and other essential elements to those organs. The same capillaries then take back the used blood, which carries toxins and waste products, and empty it into the veins. On its way back to the heart, the blood goes through the kidneys, where it is filtered, then through the lungs, where it is recharged with oxygen. The blood, now refilled with fresh oxygen, reaches the heart, from which it is sent off to the organs again.

Human blood is composed of blood cells and plasma cells. Blood cells contain mainly red cells, white cells, and platelets. A red cell function like a small container for a substance called hemoglobin, which gives blood its particular color. A hemoglobin molecule contains enough iron to make reds cells slightly paramagnetic and therefore subject to the effects of magnetic fields. Moreover, red blood cells are the major oxygen transporters in the body. When the body's red cell count is considerably diminished, or when the hemoglobin content of those cells, and consequently their iron content, is too low, the body does not receive enough oxygen to maintain an adequate level of energy. Anemia is a condition where there is a loss of energy due to a lack of iron.

It has been shown that magnets can increase blood conductivity slightly, and ionized blood can improve blood circulation and stabilize high or low blood pressure. Therefore, magnetized blood can carry more oxygen to the cells; in other words, it can make more energy available to tissues and organs, which perform better as a result.

Oxygen deficiency or starvation is arguably one of the greatest causes of disease. Oxygen provides life and energy to every cell. Insufficient oxygen to support a healthy cell results in the cell turning to another source of energy. Usually sugar fermentation results as the alternative energy supply. This upsets the metabolism of the cell and causes it to manufacture incorrect chemicals. Soon a whole group of unhealthy and weak cells develop. These cells have now lost their natural immunity and are now open to invasion by both bacteria and viruses.

Oxygen starved tissues can generate the following disorders:

  • Heart disease

  • Memory loss

  • Peripheral artery deficiency

  • Dizziness

  • Strokes

  • Diabetes

  • Loss of balance

It has been shown that cancer cannot grow in a high oxygen environment. When oxidation fails and fermentation is substituted for a cell's energy, the pathway to cancer is opened. Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the proper function of the immune system, i.e. resistance to disease, bacteria and viruses.

Sometimes arteries become partially obstructed by fat deposits or accumulation of calcium or cholesterol. Because blood flow is impeded, oxygen supply as well as the supply of other essential nutrients is diminished. Fortunately, it has been observed that magnetism activates and accelerates blood circulation.

Magnetized hemoglobin not only facilitates better oxygen supply, but also allows better waste elimination. Internal organs that are well supplied with what they need tire less quickly. An electromagnetic field have following effects in the blood of human subjects:

  • A reduction of cholesterol levels

  • A lower white blood cell count

  • An increase in the secretion of cortical hormones

  • Faster coagulation

  • A decrease in blood pressure


Effect of magnetism on Nervous System
Magnetism also has a remarkable effect on the nervous system. It has been shown that North Pole energy has an anesthetic effect on pain, and we now know how magnetism exerts this effect on the nervous system. The basic building block of the nervous system is the nerve cell, or neuron. These cells produce a form of energy that passes through their membranes. Ions are carried outside the body by axons, which are a kind of prolongation of the neurons. Axons are usually covered with a coating called myelin, which insulates them and increases the conduction speed of nervous influx. Neurons carry impulses between the body periphery and the central nervous system. This system is very complex. Some neurons are linked by connections called synapses, and it is believed that in the brain and spinal cord there are over ten trillion such synapses.

Sensory neurons react to touch, pressure, pain, temperature, position, muscular tension, chemical concentration and other mechanical stimuli. They make us aware of our internal and external environment and of the changes taking place within them. When nerve cells are stimulated, they send messages to the brain. An electrochemical impulse travel along the nerve, and its passage is facilitated or inhibited by the absence or presence of synapses. When the brain finally receives the impulse, it interprets the message and responds to it. The response is either voluntary or involuntary reflex. Unlike blood cells, nerve cells have a negative internal charge and a positive external charge. When nerve endings are stimulated, the external positive charge becomes very powerful. Under this pressure, the cell membrane opens for a fraction of a second, letting positive ions pass into the interior of the cell. The positive charge inside the cell tends to transmit itself to the adjacent nerve cell, and so on. This nervous influx is a kind of signal. To feel pain, there must be stimulation of the nerve endings, and the brain must be informed of this stimulation and interrupt it. If the nerve is cut, or if the influx is too weak, no pain will be felt. This explains the anesthetic effect of the North Pole.

When the north pole of a magnet is applied to the skin next to nerve endings, the negative energy of the magnet and the positive energy of the nerve cells attract each other. A bioelectric exchange takes place, from the positive towards the negative. In other words, the positive charge at the surface of the nerve cell is reduced because part of it is carried away toward the negative pole of the magnet, so that less energy travels to the brain. Therefore, the brain receives a less intense message and signals a reduction of pain; an anesthetic effect has taken place.


Effect of magnetism on Endocrine System
The endocrine system also responds to magnetism. Where as the nervous system acts directly on muscles and glands, the endocrine system exerts a slower effect. It acts on cells by means of chemical substances called hormones, which are secreted directly into the blood. These hormones produce a specific effect on certain types of cells. Each cell has receptors that recognize only the molecules of hormones intended specifically for it and draw the hormone molecules out of the blood circulatory system.

The nervous system and others activate some endocrine glands by chemical changes in the body. Hormones and neurotransmitters are compared as follows: Hormones of the endocrine system and neurotransmitters in the nervous system have a similar function: they carry messages between the cells of the body. A neurotransmitter carries messages between neurons that are next to each other, so its effect is localized. A hormone, on the other hand, can travel long distances in the body and produce various effects on several types of cells. Despite this difference, these chemical messages have something in common, because some of them perform both types of function. For example, adrenaline and norepinephrine act as neurotransmitters when the neurons, and act as hormones release them when they are produced by suprarenal glands.

Hormonal secretions can be regulated and even improved by the effects of magnetism because the capillaries surrounding the glands are part of the circulatory system, which has been shown to be affected by magnetism. Dilating the capillaries allows for better transmission of the hormones to all parts of the body and therefore improves overall health. Because glands sometimes stimulate hormone secretions in other glands, the effect produced by regulating hormone function can be remarkable.


Research studies on Magnetism
Research studies have shown that magnetism:

  • Increased blood flow with resultant increased oxygen carrying capacity, both of which are basic to helping the body heal itself.

  • Changes in migration of calcium ions, which can either bring calcium ions to heal a broken bone in half the usual time or help remove calcium away from painful arthritic joints.

  • The high-powered balance of various body fluids can be altered by magnetic fields.

  • Hormone production from the endocrine glands can be either increased or decreased by magnetic stimulation.

Other studies showed that:

  • Magnetic contact with human blood activates the iron contents and creates a weak electric current.

  • The number of red blood corpuscles is increased and inactive and decayed arteries are strengthened.

  • Movement of hemoglobin is accelerated and calcium and cholesterol deposits are held to a minimum.

  • The process of ionization is hastened which alleviates the danger of blood clotting and stimulates the flow of blood to arteries and veins.

  • Secretion of hormones and other fluids is promoted.

  • Function of ANS is normalized and strengthened.

  • Building up of new cells and rejuvenation of tissues.

Further studies demonstrated that:

  • Magnets act as regulators by changing the intensity of electrical fields and corresponding magnetic fields.

  • Magnetic fields cause bicarbonate bonds to break, producing hydroxides that create an alkaline pH and extra cellular fluid capable of absorbing far more oxygen than in an acidic pH environment.

  • Magnetic field also raises the potential difference between external and internal fluids allowing nutrient channels to open more readily. Studies have shown a good success rate in healing of non-union bone fractures when treated with magnetic therapy.
