UFO Disclosure Debate

UFO investigators and researchers have a burning desire not only to educate the public about UFOs, but also point out the importance of being ready just in case "it" really happens. The "it" being contact from intelligent beings not of this world.

Just as scientists and military hardware personnel struggle to have an adequate response to a large meteor heading straight to Earth, Ufologists attempt to involve the powers to be in being ready just in case an intelligent race of aliens from another planet did decide to make themselves known to the populace of Earth.

Science, at this time, just won't involve themselves in this possibility. And, if the military is considering the possibility, they are not telling us about it.

The public has a right to know what the government knows about UFOs, and should reinitiate their research on the subject, and release more top-secret documents to the general public. If the citizenship of America can handle issues as delicate and controversial as war on foreign soil, and the loss of our young men and women, we can handle the truth about UFOs. Top government officials, including science advisors, stand hard against public disclosure, and view the UFO mystery as a frivolous matter.

Today, even though the government has ended funding for the original SETI project, this endeavor is important enough to be driven by private donations from interested, generous individuals. It is an important paradox that so many private citizens feel that the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is important enough to open their wallets to its cause, and yet the government will not match their enthusiasm. At least, this is the official stand. But who knows what really goes on at top secret installations like Area 51, and others. It is a proven fact that a number of top secret aircraft had their birth there, so why not also house the important task of contacting other worlds with intelligent beings there also? Or, is this already the case?

Officially, the United States Air Force discontinued its Project Blue Book in 1969, citing the reason that UFOs did not present any threat to national security. This statement was taken by many to mean that there was nothing to the many, well documented cases of UFO sightings. Most of them could easily be explained by everyday means. Although the Air Force did have a small number of "unexplained" cases, their reasons for scrapping the entire project was only that no security issues were at stake. This, in itself, may mean only that; this does not necessarily mean that there is nothing to UFOs at all. Many documents exist today, still hidden under the veil of national security, that hold evidence that only a small group of elite, well chosen individuals have seen. These highly select individuals are a modern version of Majestic 12, and other similar groups that have had this information passed down to them through the years.

How important are these files? What mysterious secrets are kept under deep guard?

Those who claim that the lack of evidence for the reality of UFOs dictates a total disregard of the subject, are taking a great risk. If there is a clandestine operation for preparation for the landing of a UFO in public view, who should know? Is this issue so sensitive that only a handful of top rate scientists and researchers should hold this evidence to themselves? Should the fate of so many be put in the hands of so few?

If an extraterrestrial intelligence did contact the government of the United States, what would be the course of action? And can we be so arrogant to believe that the United States would be their target?


Maybe they would contact another country or countries, or possibly follow the script of "The Day the Earth Stood Still," and desire a forum of leaders of all countries of Planet Earth. Should this happen, we would disappoint them for certain. Could there be at present, a joint effort among countries of the world to resolve issues dealing with contact?

Many individuals and groups picket for an open release of all documents and secrets kept by our government dealing with UFO and Alien contact. How much should we know? Maybe not everything, but at least let us in on part of what is happening with this critical issue.

Admittedly, there is information that should be kept from public knowledge, but we the citizens of this country have a right to know at least that contact has been made, and whether or not this contact has any negative implications. If there is cause for concern, we have a right to know.

The results of the airing of the 1939 radio hoax by Orson Welles, "War of the Worlds," cannot be forgotten. It must be remembered, however, that the cause of the panic that night was the fact that what was announced came without any warning or foreknowledge. The citizens of all countries deserve some knowledge of what is happening in this area of investigation.

Although there may be some panic among our citizens upon a "first contact" announcement, if some representative citizens were allowed to be involved in the behind the scenes workings of our government in this area, some knowledge could be imparted to the "everyday" person, which would allay some public fear inherent with this possible earth shaking event.

The opinion to withhold information from the general public is based on the following viewpoint.

We know that it a fact that all men were not created equal. This is not to demean, but to make a very important point. All individuals have certain talents and abilities; some in one area, and some in another.

That being said, it is noteworthy to stress that an average, everyday citizen cannot be involved with national security issues, and sensitive government secrets belong in the hands of only those who have the education and experience to make decisions for all citizens based on events as they happen. Think what may have happened if there was public knowledge of "little boy" before the Enola Gay dropped its payload on Hiroshima, which began the end for Japan in World War II. It's like they say, "loose lips sink ships."

Most definitely, if the government is holding the secrets of alien contact, great restraint should be taken before sharing this knowledge with anyone not qualified to intelligently deal with all of its implications.

The deep secrets of UFO and Alien contact belong right where they are today, in the hands of a small, well qualified group of chosen officials. The citizenry does not need to know everything. The government is sworn to protect its citizens, and this can best be accomplished by deciding what stays under lock and key, and what is offered for public consumption.

This attitude is exactly why there is such a distinction between having a government "for the people," and a government "by the people." We have given everything we have for our country, and have an inalienable right to know the truth. Let us have it, we'll find a way to deal with it. Listen to us, "we the people."

Scottish GPs Go Herbal

A new study, appearing in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, found that 60 percent of Scottish doctors prescribe homeopathic or herbal remedies for their patients, with many scripts being written for babies and children under 16. The surprisingly high figure has caused concern in the UK's National Health Service, which has called for a critical review of homeopathic and herbal prescribing.

The study, from the University of Aberdeen, analyzed official prescribing data for nearly 2 million patients from 2003-4. The key findings included:

Four percent of patients prescribed a herbal remedy were, at the same time, prescribed conventional medication that has been documented to interact with herbal treatments.
Children under 12 months were most likely to be prescribed a homeopathic or herbal remedy (9.5 per 1,000 children in that age group), followed by adults aged 81-90 (4.5 per 1,000). Sixteen percent of homeopathic prescribing was to children under 16.
Forty-nine percent of practices prescribed a total of 193 different homeopathic remedies and 32 percent prescribed 17 different herbal remedies.
The top five prescribed homeopathic remedies were Arnica montana (for injury, bruising), Rhus toxicodendron (joint symptoms, headache), Cuprum metallicum (cramp, poor circulation), Pulsatilla (PMT, menopausal symptoms, breast feeding problems) and Sepia (PMT, menopausal symptoms, fatigue).
The top five prescribed herbal remedies were: Gentian (poor appetite, digestive problems), Cranberry (urinary tract infection), Digestodoron (indigestion, heartburn, constipation), Evening primrose (PMT) and Laxadoron (constipation).
"This level of prescribing raises important questions about homeopathic and herbal provision in the UK's National Health Service," said study co-author Dr James McLay, of the University of Aberdeen. He cited the absence of any clinical evidence for the effectiveness of homeopathy as a significant problem. "Given the rise of evidence-based medicine and the trend toward prescribing guidance in the UK, should therapies with no convincing positive clinical trial evidence be prescribed and funded by the health service?"

The large number of alternative prescriptions written for children and babies underscores the need for a critical review of the trend, adds McLay. "We hope that this paper will further inform the debate, as it provides clear evidence on prescribing patterns within the NHS [National Health Service] and raises a number of important issues, particularly about prescribing homeopathic and herbal remedies to children," he concluded.

Antidepressant Effects Of Semen

Semen makes you happy. That's the remarkable conclusion of a study comparing women whose partners wear condoms with those whose partners don't.

The study, which is bound to provoke controversy, showed that the women who were directly exposed to semen were less depressed. The researchers think this is because mood-altering hormones in semen are absorbed through the vagina. They say they have ruled out other explanations.

"I want to make it clear that we are not advocating that people abstain from using condoms," says Gordon Gallup, the psychologist at the State University of New York who led the team. "Clearly an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease would more than offset any advantageous psychological effects of semen."

Suicide attempts
His team divided 293 female students into groups depending on how often their partners wore condoms, and assessed their happiness using the Beck Depression Inventory, a standard questionnaire for assessing mood. People who score over 17 are considered moderately depressed.

The team found that women whose partners never used condoms scored 8 on average, those who sometimes used them scored 10.5, those who usually used them scored 15 and those who always used them scored 11.3. Women who weren't having sex at all scored 13.5.

What's more, the longer the interval since they last had sex, the more depressed the women who never or sometimes used condoms got. But the time since the last sexual encounter made no difference to the mood of women who usually or always used condoms.

The team also found that depressive symptoms and suicide attempts were more common among women who used condoms regularly compared with those who didn't. The results will appear in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.

And Gallup told New Scientist that his team already has unpublished data from a larger group of 700 women confirming these findings. In this study, the always-use-condoms group were more depressed than the usually-use-condoms group, suggesting the discrepancy in the smaller study was a sampling error, he says.

Alternative explanations
But is it really the semen that affects women's mood? The researchers say they looked at alternative explanations such as whether women who seldom use condoms took oral contraceptives, how often they had sex, the strength of relationships, and the possibility that having a certain type of personality influenced the decision to use condoms. But none of these factors can explain their findings, they say.

In fact, the results aren't a complete surprise because semen does contain several mood-altering hormones, including testosterone, oestrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone, prolactin and several different prostaglandins. Some of these have been detected in a women's blood within hours of exposure to semen.

The question many people will ask is whether oral sex could have the same mood-enhancing effects. "Since the steroids in birth control pills survive the digestion process, I would assume that the same holds true for at least some of the chemicals in semen," Gallup says.

"I understand that among some gay males who have anal intercourse, it is not uncommon to attempt to retain the semen for extended periods of time," he adds. "Suggesting, of course, that there may be psychological effects." But further research will be needed to confirm whether exposure to semen through oral or anal sex really does affect mood in heterosexual or homosexual partners.

But why should semen have such an effect? "It makes no sense to me for this phenomenon to have evolved," says Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. But Gallup counters that men whose semen promotes long-term mood enhancement might have more chances to indulge in sexual activity.

Ancient Machine Deciphered

Scientists have finally demystified the incredible workings of a 2,000-year-old astronomical calculator built by ancient Greeks.

A new analysis of the Antikythera Mechanism [image], a clock-like machine consisting of more than 30 precise, hand-cut bronze gears, show it to be more advanced than previously thought—so much so that nothing comparable was built for another thousand years.

"This device is just extraordinary, the only thing of its kind," said study leader Mike Edmunds of Cardiff University in the UK. "The design is beautiful, the astronomy is exactly right…In terms of historical and scarcity value, I have to regard this mechanism as being more valuable than the Mona Lisa."

The researchers used three-dimensional X-ray scanners to reconstruct the workings of the device's gears and high-resolution surface imaging to enhance faded inscriptions on its surface.

Precise astronomy

The new analysis reveals that the device's front dials [image] had pointers for the sun and Moon—called the "golden little sphere" and "little sphere," respectively—and markings which coincided with the zodiac and solar calendars. The back dials [image], meanwhile, appear to have been used for predicting solar and lunar eclipses [image].

The researchers also show that the device could mechanically replicate the irregular motions of the Moon, caused by its elliptical orbit around the Earth, using a clever design involving two superimposed gear-wheels, one slightly off-center, that are connected by a pin-and-slot device.

The team was also able to pin down the device's construction date more precisely. Radiocarbon dating suggested it was built around 65 BC, but newly revealed lettering on the machine indicate a slightly older construction date of 150 to 100 BC. The team's reconstruction also involves 37 gear wheels, seven of which are hypothetical.

"In the face of fragmentary material evidence, such guesswork is inevitable. But the new model is highly seductive, and convincing in all of its detail," wrote Francois Charette, a researcher at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Germany who was not involved in the study, in a related article in the journal Nature.

Discovered in 1900

Pieces of the ancient calculating machine were discovered by sponge divers exploring the remains of an ancient shipwreck off the tiny island of Antikythera in 1900. For decades, scientists have been trying to figure out how the device's 80 fragmented pieces [image] fit together and unlock its workings.

Previous reconstructions suggested the Antikythera Mechanism was about the size of a shoebox, with dials on the outside and a complex assembly of bronze gear wheels within. By winding a knob on its side, the positions of the sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus could be determined for any chosen date. Newly revealed inscriptions also appear to confirm previous speculations that the device could also calculate the positions of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn—the other planets known at the time.

The international team, led by Edmunds and Tony Freeth, also of Cardiff University, included astronomers, mathematicians, computer experts, script analysts and conservation experts from the UK, Greece and the United States.

The researchers plan to create a computer model of how the Antikythera Mechanism worked and eventually a working replica.

The team's findings will be presented in a two-day international conference in Athens and published in the Nov. 30 issue of the journal Nature.

The Asclepius

Long before John allegedly wrote the Apocalypse on the island of Patmos, an unknown Egyptian wrote down the Lament, which some have titled “The Apocalypse”, for it prophesized the demise of the Egyptian religion. The Asclepius is sometimes not treated as part of the Corpus Hermeticum, as its Greek text was lost and it is only partially preserved in Latin. Some have described it as “one of the most moving passages of prose I have read from Classical Antiquity”. It predicted that “there will come a time when it will be seen that in vain have the Egyptians honoured the divinity with a pious mind and with assiduous service. All their holy worship will become inefficacious.” It predicted the end of the world – the Egyptian world.

“Do you not know, Asclepius, that Egypt is an image of heaven or, to be more precise, that everything governed and moved in heaven came down to Egypt and was transferred there? If truth were told, our land is the temple of the whole world.” It is one of the most quoted relatively ancient Egyptian texts, though it is actually part of the Corpus Hermeticum and thus by some to be considered not Egyptian at all. It is the “extended and unabridged edition” of the dictum “as above, so below”. Some have labelled this the summary of the entire system of traditional and modern magic, while others believe it holds the key to all mysteries. It suggests that the macrocosmos was reflected in the microcosmos, a concept which formed the basis of astrology. For Robert Bauval, Wim Zitman and many others, it meant that Egypt’s monuments (read: pyramids) were earthly representations of the heavens, specifically creating a correspondence between the layout of the stars in the sky and the pyramids on Earth. For philosophers, it means that God was not some distant entity, but that God was the same as man, and man was God, each of us containing a divine spark. Most importantly, it also formed the backbone of magic, as it worked with correspondences. An act that was done here on Earth, had a correspondence in Heaven; asking a statue of a god on Earth was delivered to that god above.
Everything was interrelated and interdependent. The purpose of all rituals in ceremonial magic was – and is – to unite the microcosm with the macrocosm, to join God, or the gods, when invoked (prayer or concentrated thought) with human consciousness. When such a supreme union was achieved, the subject and object became one. The magician felt that he was consciously in touch with all elements of the universe, therefore, he could control them. Authors like Jeremy Naydler have made it clear that the Egyptians expected nothing more, nothing less and nothing but, from their Pharaoh: to be a bridge between this world and the divine realm, to balance both and channel the lower things upwards and the higher things downwards. It led to a highly proscribed and ritualised lifestyle, with little room for deviation from that which was required to happen. It was a careful balance that had to be maintained at all cost, for the welfare of the nation.

Egypt was a land of magic: it was meant to be an image of heaven and the Egyptians had always tried to do their utmost to make it so. But things were not about to last; the Lament spoke of a dark future – a vision of the apocalypse, when Egypt as the ancient Egyptians knew it would no longer be: “And yet, since it befits the wise to know all things in advance, of this you must not remain ignorant: a time will come when it will appear that the Egyptians paid respect to divinity with faithful mind and painstaking reverence – to no purpose. All their holy worship will be disappointed and perish without effect, for divinity will return from Earth to Heaven, and Egypt will be abandoned. The land that was the seat of reverence will be widowed by the powers and left destitute of their presence. When foreigners occupy the land and territory, not only will reverence fall into neglect but, even harder, a prohibition under penalty prescribed by law (so-called) will be enacted against reverence, fidelity and divine worship. Then this most holy land, seat of shrines and temples, will be filled completely with tombs and corpses.”
And so it happened. Today, Egypt is indeed nothing but tombs and corpses, with Egyptology a science that is purely interested in the tombs and corpses, with only the most minimal of attention paid to the Egyptian religion, if at all. Indeed, today, most argue that the ancient Egyptian civilisation was impressive, but that their religion was ignorant of modern philosophical frameworks; several academics label the ancient Egyptian mindset as little better than primitive or one step beyond “savages”.
We stand in awe of the temples and the statues of Horus in front of the Temple of Edfu, but we see nothing but a statue. In ancient Egyptian times, these statues were seen as being alive, animated – holding the spirit of the deity – being the deity – represented on Earth. But now the statues are indeed silent and “divinity has returned from Earth to Heaven”. The bond between Heaven and Earth, so central to the ancient Egyptian mind, has been broken and nothing but a dead landscape remains. Whereas the Lament is at pains to explain that, as unlikely it may seem for the ancient Egyptian that this will happen, for modern man, it is as unlikely to imagine that a stone statue was once believed to be a living entity, an earthly residence for a god, somehow “alive”.
Indeed, “0 Egypt, Egypt, of your reverent deeds only stories will survive, and they will be incredible to your children! Only words cut in stone will survive to tell your faithful works, and the Scythian or Indian or some such neighbour barbarian will dwell in Egypt.” Indeed.

As sad as this was, this was not the end of it. “Why weep, O Asclepius? Egypt will be carried away to worse things than this; she will be polluted with yet graver crimes. She, hitherto most holy, who so much loved the gods, only country of the Earth where the gods made their home in return for her devotion, she who taught men holiness and piety, will give example of the most atrocious cruelty, in that hour, weary of life, men will no longer regard the world as worthy object of their admiration and reverence.” Egypt was seen as the land where the gods dwelled. It was the only land in the world where the gods dwelled. And they dwelled in Egypt, for it was there that they were worshipped by the people; it was a symbiotic link.
We do not understand the ancient world, and that is indeed what the Lament prophesized: “This All, which is a good thing, the best that can be seen in the past, the present and the future, will be in danger of perishing; men will esteem it a burden; and then they will despise and no longer cherish this whole of the universe, incomparable work of God, glorious construction, good creation made up of an infinite diversity of forms, instrument of the will of God who, without envy, pours forth his favour on all his work, in which is assembled in one whole, in a harmonious diversity, all that can be seen that is worthy of reverence, praise and love. For darkness will be preferred to light; it will be thought better to die than to live; none will raise his eyes towards heaven; the pious man will be thought mad, the impious, wise; the frenzied will be thought brave, the worst criminal a good man.” This is very much a description of our times (and previous centuries), in which the foundation of the ancient world was abandoned. Ancient man saw its role on Earth as a contemplation of the divine creation, to admire God’s work and be part of it, and trying to sustain it. That harmony – balance – has now been abandoned, and it is of course one of the reasons why the gods left. The Lament gives a description of the philosophy involved in this ancient mindset: “The soul and all the beliefs attached to it, according to which the soul is immortal by nature or foresees that it can obtain immortality as I have taught you – this will be laughed at and thought nonsense.” The immortality of the soul was another teaching (treatise) of the Corpus, which had preceded the Asclepius. As it predicted the future, like John’s Apocalypse, it was positioned last in the Corpus Hermeticum.
The abandonment of the ancient Egyptian religion is our present era, but the prophecy itself applies to events that have occurred in our parts: the advent of Christianity. This radically altered the philosophical landscape, pushing aside the Egyptian framework, claiming that eternal damnation is what is in stall for us, unless we embrace Christianity. Such simplistic thinking was seen by the ancient Egyptians as “the darkness”, as its philosophy was not only considered to be basic, but plain wrong. And it happened with Emperor Constantius, one of Constantine the Great's sons and successors, who issued a decree in 353 AD which ordered temples to be closed and pagan sacrifices to be banned; those who disobeyed the law were to be put to death, thus fulfilling the prophecy: “And believe me, it will be considered a capital crime under the law to give oneself to the religion of the mind. A new justice will be created and new laws. Nothing holy, nothing pious, nothing worthy of heaven and of the gods who dwell there, will be any more spoken of nor will find credence in the soul.” By the time some freedom came back under Muslim rule, the nightmare – the apocalypse – had happened: “The gods will separate themselves from men, deplorable divorce.” The dictum “as above, so below” no longer applied and Egypt became the wasteland.

The Lament does not stop there and it moves into “post apocalyptic times”: “Only the evil angels will remain, who will mingle with men, and constrain them by violence – miserable creatures – to all the excesses of criminal audacity, engaging them in wars, brigandage, frauds, and in everything which is contrary to the nature of the soul.” But there is worse to come, and it is perhaps here that we see a prediction for our times: “Then the earth will lose its equilibrium, the sea will no longer be navigable, the heaven will no longer be full of stars, the stars will stop their courses in the heaven. Every divine voice will be silenced, and will be silent. The fruits of the Earth will molder, the soil will be no longer fertile, the air itself will grow thick with a lugubrious torpor. Such will be the old age of the world, irreligion, disorder, confusion of all goods.” The prophecy clearly states that as the contact with the gods is lost, Mankind is left to fend for his own, and makes a total mess of it, destroying the Earth, polluting the air. Worst of all, for the ancient Egyptians, it seems is the light pollution, as the “heaven will no longer be full of stars”, those bright sparks in the night’s sky that for them was the most visual blackboard against which the divine myths were projected. And then? “When all these things have come to pass, O Asclepius, then the Lord and Father, the god first in power and the demiurge of the One God, having considered these customs and voluntary crimes, endeavouring by
his will, which is the divine will, to bar the way to vices and universal corruption and to correct errors, he will annihilate all malice, either by effacing it in a deluge or by consuming it by fire, or destroying it by pestilential maladies diffused in many places.” That, it seems, is our “end of times”, a world ended by water or fire, in which the vice of the world is washed or burned away – the “true” apocalypse, the one spoken of by John in the Bible: the end of the world – this world – and the birth of a new world: “Then he will bring back the world to its first beauty, so that this world may again be worthy of reverence and admiration, and that God also, creator end restorer of so great a work, may be glorified by the men who shall live then in continual hymns of praise and benedictions. That is what the rebirth of the world will be: a renewal of all good things, a holy and most solemn restoration of Nature herself, imposed by force in the course of time… by the will of God.” A new hope.

There is much in the Lament that is difficult to understand and our modern mind is ill-equipped to comprehend. That is, in fact, exactly what Hermes is saying in this dialogue – though it is largely a monologue – to Asclepius. But there are some hints. The ancient Egyptians stated that their ancient statues were alive and even were able to walk – a preposterous notion to us, as we all “know” that tons of rock on a pedestal are impossible to move of its own accord, if only because these deities who were believed to inhabit them, actually do not exist, right? Still, “walking Egyptian statues” are rare, but not unheard of, it seems. Approximately a year ago, a Scandinavian museum made headline news when it reported that staff found that over a period of time, sometimes as little as a night or a day, some Egyptian statues in a glass cabinet on display in the museum had moved. Each time they repositioned them, but soon after, they had moved again and soon, staff ruled out any human interference; the statues somehow moved of their own accord, very much like ancient Egyptian statues apparently did.
What about speaking statues? Lynn Picknett once spoke about a visit to the British Museum, in which she saw a woman offering some fine desert sand in front of one of the Sekhmet statues in its collection. She enquired why the visitor did this and she replied that on a previous visit to the museum, the visitor had wondered whether these statues were happy, so far away from home, upon which the statue apparently answered that yes, it was, but what it missed most was the Egyptian sand. After a visit to Egypt, the visitor brought back some sand and deposited it in front of the statue, so that it would no longer be unhappy. The ravings of a mad visitor to the British Museum? Perhaps, or perhaps someone who somehow was able to communicate with the “energy” of these statues, like the ancient Egyptians claimed to do. Indeed, the notion that the ancient Egyptian mind was wired differently and that this explains their widely different interpretation of reality has been explored by some, and perhaps most prominently by Julian Jaynes in The Bicameral Brain. Jaynes came to the conclusion that most of the people in these archaic cultures were not subjectively conscious as we understand it today. He declared that “there is in general no consciousness in the iliad.” Analysing Homer's epic, Jaynes came to the conclusion that “the characters of the Trojan siege did not have conscious minds, no introspection, as we know it in the modern human”. Jaynes was unwilling to attach any factual reality to the existence of these deities, instead claiming that a different organisation of our brain resulted in parts of our brain being interpreted as if they were voices coming from somewhere else – and hence labelled gods. He stated that the theocracies of the ancient world were the only means for a bicameral civilization to survive. Circumventing chaos, these rigid hierarchies allowed for "lesser men hallucinating the voices of authorities over them, and those authorities hallucinating yet higher ones, and so" to kings and gods. According to Jaynes, "the idols of a bicameral world are the carefully tended centers of social control, with auditory hallucinations instead of pheromones."
This would imply that for the ancient Egyptians, these gods would have “felt” real, even though they were not. Jaynes’ theory remains highly controversial and though he was a professor of psychology at Princeton, the “bicameral mind” is not the accepted scientific point of view on the issue. Which means that for most – and us – that the ancient Egyptians believed that the ancient Egyptian gods were real, and not a figment of their imagination. And the best evidence for this, is magic.

The gods were called upon and asked to manifest themselves. This was done via a ritual, which involved the invocation of the First Time, which was seen as an existence outside of this reality, comparable to the world of archetypes as defined by Carl Jung. The magician tapped into this pool and re-enacted archetypical scenarios. These scenarios – templates – are known to us, as they are, for example, the story of the battle of Horus against Seth. In the ritual, an image of the god that was called upon was made. Then, the “opening of the mouth” was performed, by reciting certain words of power, which meant that the image became filled with the presence of the god. The statue was his residence.
Not only gods resided in statues. Statues of the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs were believed to hold his ka. The ka was a spiritual double and was born with every man and lived on after he died as long as it had a place to live. Of course, the body was mummified to try and preserve this, but it could also apparently be transferred onto something else, like an “artificial body”: a statue. The “opening of the mouth” ceremony performed on the deceased Pharaoh was precisely linked with tying the ka to its Earthly residence… and it is also the inspiration for the so-called mummy’s curse, which would become popular in the late 19th century.
The story of visualising the gods by continued thought is similar to the biblical story of Jacob praying to his angel, who finally, after much concentrated thought, manifests himself. Jacob too challenges and fights with his angel, before he gets from that angel what he wants. The “guardian angel” in ancient Egypt was often referred to as the ka: it was the conscience or guide of each individual and in Asclepius’ dialogue with Hermes, we should perhaps see this as an inner dialogue, of Asclepius talking to his “guardian angel” and guide – an archetype, Hermes.

“Archetypical magic” is still used today: in war, the home nation is identified as the land of “good” and the enemy is identified as the “evil empire”, linked with Satan, a Christian adaptation of Seth. The ancient Egyptian templates, archetypes, still exist today and remain widely used, though seldom pointed out.
Once the link between magician and entity (the deity) was established, the link had to be maintained. Often, this was pure bullying: the magicians threatened the gods if they did not do what they were asked to do… that they would no longer be worshipped. It shows a mutual relationship, which is vastly different from what many Egyptologists or people like Jaynes believe. They often suggest that the ancient Egyptians were fearful of their gods, whereas that is definitely not the case: it was a symbiosis of Egypt with higher powers, in which both were better off: the archetypes were “energised” by the worship and in return, their energy was asked to be applied (channelled) to the benefit of the nation.
The ancient Egyptians stated that the human magical act resulted in “heka”, the cosmic energy, which was meant to flow. The Lament suggests that this energy solidified, when the gods were no longer worshipped – it blocked up and Heaven and Earth separated.
Jung was an adapt of ancient mythology and magic and he wrote about manifestations of the archetypes into our reality (e.g. he interpreted UFOs as such). He felt that their invasion in this realm was a sign that they were about to bring about a new world, whether we want to or not. Indeed, the Lament does not suggest that we should desire to unblock the “cosmic channels” and try to get the heka flowing again. The future predicted by the Lament is far darker: there seems to be no hope for our world, and God himself will set back to the clock and restart, underlining the cyclical concept of time that was equally typically ancient and which we too, in our linear approach to time, have lost. And thus, Asclepius wept.

ARTICLE
(Editor's Note: Summary of a 57 page Report presented by G. Wollin on November 20, 1987, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.) Excerpt taken from MAGNETS, Volume 3, Number 4, April 1988.

"Mrs. Kerstin Westelius had lung cancer of the metastasis type. After years of surgery, therapy and chemotherapy, she was told in June 1987 by her physicians that her cancer was incurable and that she had only 2 more months to live. Here in the picture, she is shown in January of 1988 with her physician, Dr., Erik Enby, who treated her by hanging a Neomax supermagnet around her neck, and with Prof. Goesta Wollen of Clyde, N.C., who invented the method of treating cancer with the employment of supermagnets. Since July of 1987 more than 50 cancer patients in Sweden and America have been treated - all successfully."

Because of the recent invention of a supermagnet with great strength and a minute size, three breast cancer patients have been cured by a method, which will revolutionize the field of cancer treatment. One of the patients had breast cancer of the metastasis type; that is, the cancer had transplanted into tissue distant from the site of the original cancer. The technique we used strongly indicates that all kinds of cancer can be cured by this method.

The super energy permanent magnet we use in our project has a maximum energy of up to 35,000,000 gauss-oersteds. This strength of the supermagnet is the world's record in commercial production, according to the prestigious American Journal "SCIENCE." It is made of iron, boron and neodymium, one of the rare metals. It is brand-named Neomax.

The Neomax supermagnet was recently -1983 - invented by the Sumitomo Special Metals Company of Japan. This company also commercially produces it.

The size of the Neomax supermagnet that was used in the cancer project is approximately the size of an American quarter. It is smaller than a Swedish krona. It weights 30 grams, which is approximately 1 ounce.

The supermagnets for Professor Wollin were made to his specifications. Professor Wollin received, as a generous gift, 30 Neomax supermagnets from the Sumitomo Special Metals Company of Japan. Each one of the women with breast cancer who participated in the project had a supermagnet hanging around her neck for about 4 months, with the north polarity of the magnet directed toward the body.

The results indicate that our method can cure all types of cancer. If we had positioned the magnets on the tumor, we would not have known this. But since we hung a supermagnet around the neck of each patient, it indicates the supermagnets influence the whole body.

Of importance is healthy tissue surrounding a cancer tumor is not harmed by a supermagnet because healthy cells have different electromagnetic potential than cancer cells.

Of great importance is that we can suggest a mechanism; that is, what is happening when a supermagnet is trying to eliminate a malignant tumor. The mechanism is based on Wollin's recent discovery of a universal spiral theory. Wollin discovered that spirals are found throughout nature, from the galaxies, each one consisting of hundreds of billions of stars, down to the basic shape of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the bodies' ultimate genetic material. The miraculous molecule that makes a mouse a mouse or a human-being a human being. DNA exists in every chromosome in every cell of every individual.

We propose that magnetism and cancer cells are spirals on different scales. When super magnetism is applied to cancer tumors, the magnetic spirals, being larger, are dominating, and at the end, kill the smaller cancer cell spirals.

The successful result of our cancer treatment project is a consequence, of more, than 400 years of research in the fields of electromagnetotherapy and diseases.

Electromagnetotherapy needs to be clarified because in the literature the term's electrotherapy, magnetotherapy, etc., are used to describe the same process. We use only the term electromagnetotherapy because Maxwell showed that electricity and magnetism are two aspects of the same entity, electromagnetism.

In a book chapter entitled "About Magnets and Their Wonderful Ability to Help in the Cure of All sorts of Diseases" by Paracelsus, he writes, for example, that he found the use of magnets to be of great value for the cure of epilepsy. He recommends that 4 magnets be placed on the stomach and 4 on the back.

So far Nordenstrom has treated with electromagnetotherapy 80 patients with breast and lung cancer tumors. His treatment has regressed or killed the tumors in most of the 80 patients. Nordenstrom's treatment of cancer tumors consists of inserting a long needle into the center of a tumor and another needle in normal tissue. The needles are platinum electrodes. The electrode in the tumor is positive and the other negative. Wires are hooked to both electrodes and are connected to a direct electric current processor. The electric current is turned on and is increased in successions from 0 to 10 volts. The treatment has begun.

It is important that our method for curing cancer uses only one magnet. Before we started the project, described in this report, we surmised we needed two magnets - one on each side of the tumor. We succeeded in our treatment of cancer with one magnet because a human being is like a magnet. That humans are electromagnetic was suggested in 1926 by the eminent American surgeon and electromagnetotherapist George Crile in his book "A Bipolar Theory of Living Processes" and in 1983 by the eminent radiologist and cancer researcher Bjorn Nordenstrom in his book "Biological Electric Circuits: Clinical, Experimental and Theoretical Evidence for an additional Circular System".

It is very important we have developed a new method for curing cancer because cancer is increasing everywhere. For example: 1) In Japan there are more than 300,000 new cases of cancer each year; 2) In the United States the cancer mortality rate is increasing each year so that in 1986 cancer killed over 460,000 people; 3) In Sweden, during the last 20 years, there was an increase of 52% of cancer cases reported by the Swedish Socialstyrelsen on October 23, 1987.

In summary, when someone has cancer, in general there are three ways of trying to eliminate the malignant tumor from the body. Surgery is one possibility. Another possibility is to kill the cancerous cells with radiation; that is, radiotherapy, which, of course, also is electromagnetotherapy. The third option is to kill the cancerous cells with drugs; that is, chemotherapy. The drawback with these treatments is that they damage healthy cells, too.

We suggest another option: electromagnetotherapy with the employment of supermagnets. This type of treatment does not damage healthy cells because healthy cells have different electromagnetic potential than cancer cells. It is a new approach to the treatment of cancer, the first since chemotherapy began more than 40 years ago.

(The following is a report to Prof. Goesta Wollin, Clyde, N.C. from Mr. Douglas M. Redman. Mr. Redman learned that Professor Wollin and Dr. Erik Envy cured cancer patients in Sweden with the use of Neomax supermagnets. He telephoned Professor Wollin saying that his mother, Mrs. Redman, was dying of cancer. Professor Wollin sent him a Neomax supermagnet to be used for Mrs. Redman by her physician.) . . . Part .


Curing cancer with magnets
Through thousands of clinical experiments, it has been proven that magnetic therapy is safe, non-addictive, and there are no known harmful exposure levels. Clinical tests have proven that magnets reduce pain. Magnets deeply penetrate the flesh and create a magnetic field that energizes, alkalizes, and oxygenates the blood, improving the immune system performance and the body's healing abilities.

Dr. Albert Roy Davis, Ph.D., noted the positive and negative magnetic polarities have different effects upon biological systems of animals. He found that magnets could be used to arrest and kill cancer cells in animals, and could also be used in the treatment of arthritis, glaucoma, infertility, and diseases related to aging. He concluded that negative magnetic fields have a beneficial effect on living organisms, whereas positive magnetic fields have a harmful effect.

According to Wolfgang Ludwig, Sc.D., Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Biophysics in Horb, Germany, "Magnetic field therapy is a method that penetrates the whole human body and can treat every organ without chemical side effects.

"Magnetic energy has a beneficial effect on blood circulation, lymph flow, hormone production, nerves and muscles," says Dr. Ulrich Warnke, M.D., in "Magnets to Overcome Pain."

"A negative magnetic field (north or negative side) can function like an antibiotic in helping to destroy bacterial, fungal, and viral infections," says Dr. Philpott, "by promoting oxygenation and lowering the body's acidity." Both these factors are beneficial to normal bodily functions but harmful to pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms, which do not survive in a well oxygenated, alkaline environment. These two factors are why clinical studies have proven that magnets reduce pain.

Dr. Philpott theorizes that the biological value of oxygen is increased by the influence of a negative electromagnetic field, and that the field causes negatively charged DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) to "pull" oxygen out of the bloodstream and into the cell. The negative electromagnetic field keeps the cellular buffer system (pH or acid-based balance) intact so that the cells remain alkaline. The low acid balance also helps maintain the presence of oxygen in the body.

Dr. Philpott states: "A negative magnetic field normalizes the disturbed metabolic functions that cause painful conditions such as cellular edema (swelling of the cells), cellular acidosis (excessive acidity of the cells), lack of oxygen to the cells, and function. A positive magnetic field, on the other hand, can increase pain due to its interference with normal metabolic function."

On my deathbed when pain got unbearable in an area of the colon, I used the north side of a 4" x 5½" x ½" approximately 1000 gauss (magnet strength measurement) magnet against the area most all the time. By the end of the first week the pain started reducing and by the end of the month the pain had disappeared totally.

Today, 4000 gauss magnets are only an inch in size and weigh about an ounce. This type of magnet was especially designed for Professor Wollen and used on cancer patients - all successfully as mentioned in the article "Curing Cancer With Magnets" in Magnet In Your Future magazine.

In Discovery of Magnetic Health by George J. Washnis and Richard Z. Hricak quote Robert Barefoot, a bio-chemist who deals with nutrition and disease, as follows: “The loss of energy from natural magnetic fields means that cellular calcium is not maintained in an active ionized state and so reverts to its inert molecular state and is deposited as a solid substance on cells. The benefit of magnetotherapy is the ability of its magnetic fields to raise pH and thereby ionize the calcium, converting it into biologically active calcium ions.”

State-of-the-art equipment utilizing magnetic technology currently exists in Europe, where magnetic therapy is an established method in many hospitals and doctors' offices.


Curing cancer with magnets; a case study
Patient: Norma Redman.
Age: 65.
Diagnosis: Undifferentiated small cell (Oatcell) carcinoma - lung cancer.
Medical History: Little or no health problems until present illness.
Miscellaneous: Patient smoked two or three packs of cigarettes per day for fifty years.

In August of 1986, the patient developed a severe cough and experienced difficulty in breathing. She visited her doctor and he diagnosed her as having pneumonia and he admitted her to the hospital. After further testing - C.A.T scans and x-rays - she was diagnosed as having small cell carcinoma. A broncoscophy confirmed the diagnosis.

In September 1986, chemotherapy was begun. Chemotherapy continued until April 1987. Then she was given ten days of cobalt radiation directed at the brain. This treatment is necessary because conventional chemotherapy will not kill cancer cells of the Oatcell type in the brain. Chemotherapy was reinstated through late November and early December 1987.

In December 1987, one of her doctors told her she had about one month to live and that they had done all they could for her. At this time, she was experiencing severe back pain and the doctors determined the cancer had moved into her spine. She was given radiation (5 days) and one more round of chemotherapy. At that point she was told that any additional treatment would be of little or no value. On December 23, 1987, she was released from the hospital.

I visited the patient on December 25, 1987. Her condition was as follows:

a. Mental confusion. Could not remember things told to her longer that five minutes.
b. Patient was in severe pain.
c. Patient was on pain medication (Percoset), 2 tablets every 3 hours.
d. Patient could not stand or walk, aided or unaided.
e. Patient could not sleep through the night. Would awaken several times during the night and require assistance.
f. Patient was depressed and exhibited child-like mannerisms.

The "Neomax" was placed on the patient with the north polarity toward the body. After two days had passed, the patient was only taking one pain tablet in the morning and one at night. The mental confusion was noticeably absent and the patient stated that she had slept uninterrupted from 9:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. the next day.

I visited the patient on January 2, 1988. She told me she had been sleeping well every night, not awakening at all during the night. She was taking very little pain medicine. Her back was still hurting when she moved. But she stated it was more tolerable.

On January 5, 1988, the patient was moved to a skilled care nursing home. The doctors there conferred with her oncologist about her condition. On Wednesday, January 6, 1988, the patient told me she had no pain medication that day and that twice that day she had walked (aided) to the bathroom. Also, the resident doctor told her that they determined by studying x-rays, C.A.T. scans, and by other means, that she did not have any cancer in her spine. Instead, they thought her back pain was being caused by osteoporosis. Further, they told her that all tests they performed on her showed no trace of any cancer.

I talked with the patient on Friday, January 8, 1988. Her mental condition was excellent. She stated that she was taking very little pain medication and was in less pain than previous conversations. She has been wearing the super magnet, as of this writing, for fourteen days and has made remarkable progress in so short a period of time. I visited the patient on January 9, 1988. She was able to sit up in bed by herself, could sit on the side of the bed by herself, and could walk, unaided, to the bathroom by herself, although I walked along beside her just to be on the safe side. She is presently taking little or no pain medication, and no other drugs. Her appetite is not very good, but it is improving daily. I expect to visit her again at the end of January and I will be in contact with her by phone almost on a daily basis.

I will continue to monitor and report on her condition until she has fully recovered.

Supermagnets cure cancer. A conventional horse-shoe magnet weighs about 5 kilograms and has a strength of about 4,000 gauss. A Neomax supermagnet with a strength of about 4,000 gauss weighs only about one ounce. Professor Wollin of Clyde, N.C., formerly with Columbia University for 36 years, is the inventor of the method of treating cancer using supermagnets. The supermagnet hangs around the patient's neck. Cancer patients in Sweden and America who were told by their physicians that they had only one, or at the most two, more months to live have been treated successfully.

(End of article.)

In 1985, a conventional horseshoe magnet weighed approximately 5 kilograms (12 ½ pounds) and produced 4,000 gauss. Today, using a special combination of metals, the same 4,000 gauss strength is produced by a magnet weighing about an ounce and is approximately the size of three U.S. quarters stacked together.

These magnets are enclosed in soft leather necklace pouch because, according to Dr. Wollin, the north side of the magnet should be worn or placed securely over the sternum (the hard bone in the middle of the chest) just above the stomach cavity. To date, there have been thousands of these supermagnets sold. In Sweden, the charge is approximately $150.00 for one of these magnets.

Even though magnets raise the body's pH and oxygen level within the body, many other things help. Regardless of how beneficial the use of supermagnets may be in the treatment of cancer, a person should still consider making major life style changes, both mentally and physically, in order to correctly adjust their pH toward slightly alkaline (healthy) pH.

A person can increase the oxygen and alkaline levels by using certain types of magnets. But, a person with cancer is already extremely acidic and oxygen depleted. This situation has to be dealt with. We feel that the magnet is just an additional method in aiding the body towards the environment that is needed. These people should also drastically lower their consumption of acid-causing food and liquids and increase their consumption of alkaline promoting foods, liquids and supplements if they hope to totally win the battle against cancer or disease.

Biomagnetic Therapy
Dr. Michael Tierra L.AC., O.M.D.


Magnetic energy is a structuring force of the universe. As such, it is a reflection of the order that causes the infinite stars and planets throughout the galaxies to revolve and spin at incredible velocities while remaining in their respective orbits. As one of the four fundamental forces of nature along with gravity, nuclear energy and radioactivity, electromagnetism is equivalent in definition to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) concept of ‘Qi’, or the East Indian Ayurvedic definition of ‘Prana’. These concepts are what many in the West, regard as the ‘life force’.

Personally, I have had long occasion to experiment and use magnets beginning with myself and then extending to family, friends, students and patients. Two particular occasions on myself were most convincing. Both were soft tissue injuries, one to my elbow and the other, a ligament injury of my knee which I will describe further on.

The elbow pain stemmed from an unknown cause, perhaps an injury or strain. It had persisted for at least 2 weeks during that time I tried acupuncture and herbal treatments which offered only minor temporary relief. As is well known, soft tissue injuries can take some time for repair. It would be most helpful, however, if during that time, there was a simple, non-invasive method to hasten the healing and relieve the pain.

I decided to experiment using magnets to treat the problem. While I had previously heard of magnet therapy, basically that there was a difference therapeutically between the magnet’s North and South polarities, I had no previous experience or further knowledge of their use. When I taped a small 1000 Gauss acuband magnet directly on the skin over the ‘trigger’ point or center of the pain in my arm. I was amazed to find that the pain almost completely disappeared within 5 minutes. I decided to experiment further, first by removing and reapplying the magnet a few times. Each time the pain returned when the magnet was removed and all but completely disappeared again when reapplied. I then experimented by turning the magnet over to change its polarity from North, which is cooling and dispersing, to South, which is heating and building. I discovered that when the South side of the magnet was against the skin, the pain intensified and by reversing the magnet to North, it was alleviated.

Since that time, I have been intrigued with the therapeutic possibilities of bio-magnetic therapy. However, I still had no idea whether the magnet treatment to my arm was only symptomatic or could eventually promote complete healing. Further, I found that there was discrepancies both in print and from various distributors concerning the importance and definition of the North and South sides of a magnet. Despite my confusion, I tentatively began to use magnets on my patients. Because, however, I had such an unsure grasp of any basic theoretical or practical methodology, my results were inconclusive.

I say all this because there may be others who, like myself, felt or presently feel unsure about the value and results of an experience of biomagnetic therapy. Through my example they may appreciate a further corroboration by another who has become fully convinced that biomagnetic therapy may well be one of the safest and most powerful natural healing methods, especially for the relief of pain ever discovered by humankind.

My interest in magnets was rekindled a few years later when I had a crippling soft tissue injury to the medial aspect of my right knee. It was particularly debilitating because there were few positions either standing, sitting or reclining that could provide relief. Having nearly all but forgotten about my previous experience with the magnets on my elbow, I began by using acupuncture, moxabustion (heat applied to specific acupuncture points) and herbal poultices, fomentations and liniments. Everything helped but I still could barely walk or find a comfortable position to either sit or recline.

I certainly was not looking forward to having to stand and be present at a forthcoming natural products trade show that included a promised diversion to my excited young son to a nearby entertainment park. In desperation I remembered the all-but-forgotten magnets that I stored in a cupboard near my bed. I systematically applied the North magnets to the trigger points located near the site of pain around my knee. Estimating what meridians were involved, I positioned the South magnets further up the femur and hip on the Gall Bladder and Bladder Meridians. I found, however, that it was the local application of the North magnets around the knee that was most effective. Within two hours after their application, the pain was 95% gone.

Again, I decided to conduct the same experiments on my knee that I had done a few years previous on my elbow pain, by removing and reapplying them, changing the magnets to irrelevant locations and reversing their polarity. My previous findings were absolutely corroborated. I eventually discovered that I needed to wear the magnets on the trigger points around my knee nearly continuously for about two months before the problem became sufficiently stabilized and resolved.

After this second powerful experience with bio-magnetic therapy, I decided to apply magnets on all my patients along with the acupuncture, dietary and herbal therapy that was part of my normal practice. I wanted to discover for myself the range of their effectiveness for a wide variety of complaints. Since that time, I have found biomagnetic therapy to be around 90% effective for the relief of pains and conditions caused by inflammation. For examples, a woman with diagnosed symptoms of colitis, had tried many forms of conventional and non-conventional treatment over the year previous but was relieved with the application of magnets to her lower abdomen within a week. Another man with arthritis in his hands and fingers with only minimal response from acupuncture and herbal therapy used magnetic balls to relieve and eventually remedy his condition completely. Similarly, another man had encroaching stiffness in his fingers that was threatening to impair his main love, playing the guitar. He also found the results he was seeking with the use of magnetic balls. As a pianist, I can only imagine the benefit these simply magnetic balls could be to the many who have suffered injury from repetitive use or wrong playing.

Everyone, who had acute or chronic lower back, elbow or knee problems found relief and in many cases, complete recovery from the local application of magnets. Patients with asthma, found that the application of magnets to their upper back or chest would provide them the relief they desperately needed without any further external medication. The list goes on to include patients with upper respiratory allergies, gastro-intestinal and digestive complaints, migraine headaches -- all were relieved with the use of magnets -- and the list of conditions continues to expand. Now with the expanded methods of application using magnetized water, magnetized oils, magnetic mattresses and mattress pads, jewelry and so forth, I am convinced that there is no condition that bio-magnetic therapy would not be at least helpful.

Because of my experience with traditional Eastern systems of medicine, including Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) and East Indian Ayurvedic medicine, I was able to tangibly experience the fundamental energetic basis of healing with magnets described in various traditional healing systems around the world. I could tangibly understand that the North facing side of a magnet was equivalent in energy to the definition in TCM of Yin, or in Ayurveda of Shakti energy. The South facing side was equivalent to TCM Yang, or Ayurvedic Shiva energy. I also understood that the relative strength of a magnet determined whether it was to be used as an important energetic nutrient when in low strength (under 1000 gauss), or a high powered therapeutic tool in high strength (over 3000 gauss) that should be used with due respect. Essentially, like other forms of natural healing energy, if reasonably used, magnets are very forgiving. Except for the obvious contraindications noted, it is rare that anyone would experience anything more than a minor discomfort or aggravation usually caused by using magnetics that are too strong, applying the wrong North-South polarity for a given area or generally an overexposure to a strong magnetic field. If, for instance, one misapplies them over a wrong area, uses the wrong polarity or uses magnets that are inappropriately too strong, there may be a period of minor aggravation and discomfort that is easily remedied as soon as they are appropriately changed or removed. As with herbs, acupuncture and all other systems of natural healing, trial and error is a valid approach to biomagnetic therapy.

Science recognizes a close relationship between electricity and magnetism. In 1820, Hans Oersted of Denmark discovered a direct relationship between electricity and magnetism by showing that an electric current flowing in a wire caused a nearby compass needle to be deflected. Following the discoveries of Oersted, Ampere, the 18th century physicist whose notable achievements were germinal to the harnessing of electrical energy, discovered a quantitative relationship between the strength of an electric current with the magnetic field it creates (Ampere’s theorem). Noting the close relationship between electricity and magnetism, he described magnetism as “electricity thrown into curves”.

Just as the stars and planets revolve in galactical orbits, each atom has a nucleus around which spins various positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons that in turn generate a magnetic field. To reiterate, health represents a balance of these positive and negative forces described in TCM as Yin and Yang, in Ayurvedic medicine as ‘Shiva’ and ‘Shakti’, and in Western physiology as the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems.

The current theory of ‘free radicals’ as the cause of degenerative diseases and aging, is based on the concept of a negatively charged electron spinning out of their orbit, invading another cell which in turn causes a cellular disruption that sends other subatomic particles off their respective orbits. This results in cellular chaos. Biomagnetic healing is able to passively provide a stimulus for the restoration of balance at a subatomic level and offset the devastating domino-effect of harmful free radicals.

Because every atom generates an electromagnetic (EM) field, we, along with all of nature, are imbued with the power of electromagnetism. It is also possible for us to channel our innate positive electromagnetic energy for healing both ourselves and others.

Stressing the importance of electromagnetism, Einstein said,

“we may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense .....There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality.” (Our italics)

The mystic founder of Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky states similarly in different terms when she describes: “Matter is spirit at its lowest level and spirit is matter at its highest level.”

It is said that what may be described as matter, the nucleus of an atom, is so infinitesimal that if we were to gather all the nuclei of a human body, it would be no larger than a period at the end of a sentence. Thus, modern physics theorizes that what we call matter may not be particles at all, but the presence of an impenetrable electro-magnetic field.

Life, comprised of a complex chain of bio-chemical and physiological processes is activated and animated by an invisible bio-magnetic force. Apropos of this, Dr. F.K. Bellokossy of Denver Colorado, described life as an “infinitely intelligent interaction of electro-magnetic energies carried by chemical substances.”

Modern medicine has come to depend upon such high tech diagnostic procedures as the (ECG) electro-cardiogram, the (EEG) electroencephalogram, the (EMG) electromyogram to measure the electrical activity in the heart, the cerebral cortex and the skeletal muscles respectively. If there were no electrical energy in the body, such tests would not be possible.

From the perspective of bio-magnetics, health is based upon the individual cells of the body vibrating at a characteristic normal frequency. Disease, on the other hand, represents an abnormal change in cellular vibration. The therapeutic application of magnets and herbs, at the deepest level, is based on the principle of restoring normal cellular vibration.

This understanding should make magnetic therapy very accessible to those who have an energetic approach to treatment and it would include Traditional herbalism, TCM, Ayurveda and some Western ‘holistically’ oriented mind-body therapies.

MAGNETIC ENERGY: A FUNDAMENTAL EARTH NUTRIENT

The Earth’s magnetic field strength is about a half gauss.(1) While seemingly small, the magnetic field strength of gauss as a measurement is in proportion to the total mass of the magnet. With that, a half gauss in proportion to the size of the Earth becomes very significant. As a matter of fact, it is essential to life.

With the exploration of space in the 1960’s, there came increased awareness of the importance of magnetism in maintaining health, since it was found that astronauts, beyond the protective magnetic field of the Earth often returned with symptoms of psychiatric disturbances, calcium and mineral deficiencies along with other physiological disturbances. Conversely, companies who needed to conduct experiments or manufacture biological products outside of the magnetic field of the earth were, and continue to be major investors in the space program. Since that time, an integral aspect of space flight research involves studying the effects of magnetic fields on living organisms in space travel.

Part of the Earth’s magnetic field is created by the ‘ionosphere’-- a layer of air containing electrically-charged particles that extend from sixty to a hundred miles above the surface of the Earth. Extending some thousands of miles into space is the ‘magnetosphere’, sometimes called Van Allen Radiation Belt, after the scientist who discovered it. This is a huge swarm of radioactive particles that are threatening to life. If it were not for the fact that the harmful radiation particles are trapped by the Earth’s magnetic field, life on Earth would be impossible.

The half gauss strength of the Earth seems to be in a state of cyclic change so that over time, the Earth’s magnetic poles have repeatedly shifted and changed their location. Scientific research estimates that these reversals occur approximately every half to one million years. The most recent reversal occurred about 700,000 years ago. It has been documented that the Earth’s magnetic field has diminished about 50% of what it was 500-1000 years ago, with a full 5% decline recorded in the last 100 years. From this we can appreciate the vital importance of geomagnetic energy to life.

Drs. Barnwell and Brown of the Department of Biological Sciences, North Western University, USA, conducted a number of experiments exposing magnetic fields on living organisms and reported that, “There remains no reasonable doubt that all living organisms are extraordinarily sensitive to magnetic fields.” The effect of magnetic fields on living organisms continues in the USA and throughout the world but some of the most important medically is that done by the Japanese.

MAGNETIC FIELD DEFICIENCY SYNDROME
Dr. Kyoichi Nakagawa, MD, Director of Isuzu hospital, Tokyo, Japan, has described a pathological condition called Magnetic Deficiency Syndrome (MFDS) (2)that causes a variety of symptoms including stiff shoulders, back and neck, chest pains, habitual constipation and general fatigue.

He mailed questionnaires to 11,648 Japanese users of magnets 2.5 mm thick x 5 mm in diameter with external gauss strength of 590. Only the North magnetic side was in direct contact with the skin for treatment in these studies. Women represented 57% and men 43% of the total with a representative age group between 40 and 49 years.

Magnets were used for the following conditions: Stiff neck and shoulders 45.20 Lumbago 19.00% Neuralgia 13.90% Painful muscles 12.30% Rheumatism 1.30% Other 6.30% No reply 2.00%

Effects were usually noticed from the second to the fourth day. No adverse effects were reported, while over 90% of the users classified results as very efficacious, efficacious or fairly efficacious, and 105 as ineffective or not very effective.

A number of other studies were conducted with 400 subjects in 1976 by professors Akio Yamada and Shuwichi-Hirose of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Tokyo; professor Yamada, University, Juntendo, Tokyo; and Kyoshi Kurmskima, Kohnodai National hospital. Some tests were double-blind placebo using a variety of different magnetic devices. Symptoms addressed included pains in the back of the neck, shoulders, backs, arms, hands and legs. Effectiveness was in the range of 60 to 80% within a period of 7 to 14 days. No side effects were reported.

A double-blind study by Dr. Yoshio Oay treating 80 subjects with lumbar pain using strong magnetic belts containing magnets of 1,500 gauss. Fifty subjects were given the magnetic belts while 30 received placebos or less powerful belts of 200 gauss. All subjects using the full strength belts evidenced marked improvement while those using weaker magnets or placebos showed only slight or no marked improvement.

Some confuse the electro-magnetic energy generated by power lines, computer and TV monitors, electrical wiring in our homes and vehicles as equivalent. These, however, represent alternating current (AC) which is deranging to normal cellular metabolism. The earth and other metallic substances, in contrast represent a permanent magnetic field or direct current (DC) which when used appropriately can be integrative to the sub-atomic particles of cells.

Many factors, beside the natural cyclic waxing and waning of geomagnetic energy contribute to the diminishing of direct current (DC) magnetic energy to our body. Some of these are the result of interference from the AC current of man-made electromagnetic radiation which is incompatible with our bodies’ biomagnetic emanations which include television, radio, radar, household appliances, computers, electrical wiring in buildings, nearby power lines and other sources.

The effects of working and living in concrete and steel structures further cut us off from the Earth’s direct magnetic force. The automobile, train, jet plane, bus and other hi-tech modes of travel are other ways we are deprived of important natural magnetism from the Earth.

Shrinking open spaces, living high above sea level on ground covered with concrete and asphalt and the decreasing amount of ground water all contribute to lack of conductivity and Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome (MFDS).

The magnetic energy of our planet is responsible for the natural biorhythms of life. In Traditional Chinese Medicine these biorhythms describe how Qi or bio-magnetic energy is concentrated in certain areas of the body according to cycles of each day and season. It may also be concentrated in certain areas on the Earth that inexplicably have been able to retain their magnetic strength. These are recognized earth healing areas such as Lourdes, France and Sedona, Arizona.

Symptoms of MFDS may be similar to a variety of chronic conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, candida albicans and environmental allergies. MFDS typically is associated with a general malaise and low energy, frequent susceptibility to disease, tightness of the neck and shoulders, fibro-myalgic body pains, forgetfulness, headaches, digestive and circulatory problems and a general ‘foggy’ feeling.

At many healing retreats that I have both attended and conducted, we would hug a tree to experience the grounding of accumulated unnatural magnetic distortions. While this may be impossible to scientifically prove, anecdotally everyone who has ever hugged a tree will acknowledge a certain feeling of well-being afterwards, characterized by a lessening of mental and physical heaviness. Perhaps, this is another indication of an innate need for a certain type of natural energy that is lacking in our daily lives.

How do magnets work?
Magnetic energy has such all-encompassing, powerful effects that no one description of how they exert their positive therapeutic effects could adequately describe all the many complex ways it effects mind and body. However, one theory based on the concept of diseased cells losing their magnetic equilibrium, explains how topically applied magnets are able to support and encourage the normal functional relationship both within the molecular structure of each cell as well as positively influencing the relationships throughout the entire body-mind process.

Another theory is that magnets exert a powerful attraction to the iron content in the blood, penetrating the outer layers of skin, muscle and fatty tissue to the capillaries that feed directly into the bloodstream. By attracting iron and perhaps other inorganic molecules to a diseased area, circulation is increased. This is enhanced by the increase of oxygen and other vital nutrients to the affected site that assists in healing. The combined effect is regulating the pH of the cells and tissues, balancing, ionizing and oxygenating them and generally relieving congestion and pain by improving blood circulation.

Scientific research documents the following specific physiological effects of biomagnetic therapy:(3)

It effects increasing blood and oxygen circulation along with the nutrient carrying potential of the blood.
It is able to effect pH balance (acid-alkaline) which is often imbalanced in disease tissues.
It positively speeds up the migration of calcium ions to facilitate the healing of nervous tissue and bones (usually at least in half the time). Because of this it can also help remove the pathological buildup of calcium associated with arthritic joints.
It can powerfully influence the production of certain hormones from the various endocrine glands.
It stimulates and fosters enzyme activity and other related physiological processes .
If we consider that all functions of the body are essentially biomagnetic, we can understand how each body cell down to the DNA has a positive and negative biomagnetic field and that cell division, itself, is fundamentally a magnetic process that occurs throughout the various tissues and organs of the body. Physiological biochemistry that utilizes various amino acids requires biomagnetic energy to occur.

It has been found that the pineal gland, a tiny pine-cone shaped gland located directly in the center of the brain, responsible for the production of melatonin, enzymes, immune function, oxidation, carbohydrate metabolism, pigmentation by melanin and the cyclic patterns of sleep and awakening is regulated, according to Robert Becker in his book on biomagnetics called Cross Currents, “by exposure to steady magnetic fields of the same strength as the geomagnetic field”. Since the pineal gland and melatonin govern stress tolerance and the production of antioxidants that help control the harmful effects of free radicals that cause degenerative disease and aging, biomagnetics can have a very beneficial effect in helping to regulate the pineal gland to offset the natural and unnatural disruption of our exposure to natural geo-magnetic fields.

The following chart derived from Bengallineville’s book, Magnet Therapy: Theory and Practice outlines the various factors that are responsible for cellular magnetic disturbances:

Extrinsic Factors Intrinsic Factors
Natural Artificial Emotional stress
Solar flares X-rays Hormonal imbalances
Sunspot activity Cobalt-60 Infectious or pathogenic microorganisms
Eclipses Radium implants Deficiencies (iodine deficiency produces thyroid imbalances)
Moon phases
new and full moon
Nuclear plants using radioactive substances like Strontium-90 and Plutonium Deficient or imbalanced diet
Thunderstorms Radiation from color televisions and computer monitors. Ovulation
Cosmic rays Radiations from microwave ovens. Injuries (serious)
X-rays Chemical additives in food Injurious habits like excessive intake of alcohol and drugs.
Subsoil radiations
(geopathic zones)
Radioactive fallout from nuclear tests. Pregnancy
Certain planetary configurations Irradiated wheat and other foods. Menopausal period
High tension cables
Sound vibrations
Aluminum vessels used in cooking.

The safety of Biomagnetic Therapy
According to my personal experience and the experience of biomagnetic therapists and patients from around the world, magnets are corrective and regulating and therefore have little risk of either dependency or negative interaction with drugs. Magnets under 2500 gauss seem to be safe regardless of their North, South polarity (nevertheless, as a kind of energetic nutrient when used or worn daily in a mattress or shoe insole, I prefer using magnets no stronger that 1000 gauss strength). Over 3000 gauss strength, prolonged exposure to the wrong magnetic field polarity can create an minor imbalance in a small few. Therefore, exposure to high strength magnetic fields should be limited to a period of no long than 30 minutes at a time once or twice daily. This is generally not true, however, of high powered acuband magnets which can be left on the affected site for days providing the correct North-South magnetic field is in use.

I once met a women who was treating herself for a year for candida albicans and attendant symptoms, using very high strength magnets on a daily basis. She became frightened when she discovered that her hair began to fall out. This, despite the fact that most of her other symptoms were alleviated. and she even claimed to feel more energetic and vital than ever. Because the thought of losing her hair was so frightening to her, she resolved never to get near a magnet again. One day I was gratefully surprised to find a varied collection of high grade industrial strength magnets deposited in the waiting room of my clinic. I later asked her what she felt about the use of magnetic mattresses. She asserted that there was no comparison with her unfortunate experience and that their relatively low gauss strength made them virtually impossible to cause any significant harmful reaction.

Given the fact that it is impossible to predict what is otherwise known as an idiosyncratic reaction that an individual may have to practically any substance or thing, overwhelmingly the potential benefits of biomagnetic therapy makes them well worth a try for a wide variety of conditions.

A few positive experiences from my own clinical experience may serve to offset any concerns or negative impressions one may have to magnetic therapy. One was the prolonged use of high gauss magnets to completely eliminate and control the pain of a man diagnosed with incurable liver cancer. Because of the use of strong North facing magnets applied over the site of pain, he was able to spend his last days with a minimum amount of discomfort without the use of morphine or any other deadening pain medication. Two women, one with lung and another with breast cancer were able to minimize or completely eradicate any attendant pains in a similar way. Finally, A man with a diagnosed brain tumor, fastened a strong neodymium magnet on a cap which he wore for half to one hour periods twice each day. He was reexamined after a period of several months and doctors were amazed to find that his tumor had shrunk.

I must add, that all these patients were given adjunctive dietary and herbal therapy which I am sure contributed greatly to their response.

I hope that if for no other purpose than for simply the relief of pain, magnets should become either an adjunctive with other modalities or first therapeutic option.

Contraindications:
Despite the safety of magnets, there are some contraindications to be aware of. First, do not use magnets during pregnancy, on those who have a history of epilepsy, those wearing a pacemaker or other metal implants that might be dislodged by exposure to magnets. Strong magnets should be used with care on small infants and children, on the eyes, the brain or over the heart.

Healing Crisis Reaction:
Because magnets have such a positive effect on vascular circulation, some individuals may experience a temporary aggravation as a consequence of the increased discharge of toxins. Some healing crisis reactions may include symptoms such as light headedness, itching, allergic reaction, headache, sleepiness or a sensation of heat. When this occurs it is best to gradually ease into their use over a period of time.

Magnets
Materials used for magnets are those whose atoms can be permanently or semi-permanently lined up. Of all magnetic materials, an alloy comprised of one-fifth cobalt and four fifths platinum makes the most powerful magnet. Other materials used for magnets are Alnico magnets comprised of an alloy of aluminum, nickel, iron, cobalt and copper. These are about 10 times more powerful than steel magnets and 100 times more powerful than the Earth’s magnetic field. Ferrite magnets are comprised of carbonates of barium and iron. They are very powerful and significantly cheaper than alnico magnets but have the disadvantage of being very fragile.

MAGNETIC FIELDS
The magnetic field is the area where magnets exert their force. This is easily determined by holding a compass near the magnet to determine if the strength of the magnet overrides the magnetic force of the poles.

Magnetic Poles
Up until recently, scientific technical study of magnets describe the nature and effects of the two poles of a magnet as being the same. The years of research by Dr. Albert Roy Davis Ph.D., based on isolating and measuring the effects of the two poles has confirmed the different reactions they produce on living systems.

Dr. Davis was able to measure the direction of electron spin given off and transmitted from the two ends of magnet’s poles. From this, he was able to determine that the spin of the electrons were in reverse of each other. The electrons coming from the South pole of the magnet cycled and moved clockwise, to the right while those emanating from the North pole moved and cycled to the left or counterclockwise. (4)

This was confirmed from the use of complex technical magnetometers measuring the magnetic field of Earth from space. It was discovered that magnetic energy moves in an spiral forming the infinity pattern. Upon leaving either the North or South poles it travels halfway backward, clockwise or counterclockwise depending upon the exiting pole, to reenter and rephase itself inwards where it takes on the reverse spin in the opposite direction.

Dr. Davis was able to use a cathode ray vacuum to photograph in color the different North and South energies emitted from a long bar magnet. By a series of experiments first on animals and seeds and then on various fluids and foods, he was able to observe the physical effects on living systems. He confirmed the positive effects of the South pole energies in promoting rapid growth, fertility and a general metabolically heating effect as opposed to the inhibiting negative effects of the North pole that had a quieting, soothing and metabolically cooling effect.

Using untreated seeds as a comparison guide, Dr. Davis conducted a series of laboratory experiments on seeds and vegetables that were first exposed to the South pole magnet. An analysis of the end products of these plant products showed a noticeable increase in protein, sugars and oils as opposed to the control group. In contrast, those exposed to the North pole were lower in protein, sugars and oils than the control group.

He then studied the effect of South and North pole to the development and growth of Earthworms. Again, worms treated with South pole energy multiplied faster, grew more and larger than those treated with North pole energy. The protein of Earthworms is approximately 90% on the average but the effect of the South pole evidenced a marked increase of their protein content. He was also able to corroborate similar results on the growth of mice and rats.

As stated, the difference between magnetized and demagnetized material was that electrons in a magnetized object are aligned to go in a single rather than a seemingly randomized direction. The direction follows the magnetic poles of the Earth between the Southern and Northern hemispheres. (5)

Following the system described by Davis and Rawls, the bio-North (-) pole of a magnet has the same polarity as the true geographic North pole of the Earth. This bio-magnetic definition of North and South is in contradistinction to that of the National Bureau of Standards (NBS).

To determine the North-South direction of a magnet, tie a thread to the center of the magnet bar and the other end to a high place such as a ceiling or door frame. The suspended magnet will tend to spin and eventually position itself in the direction of geographical North and South as is determined by a compass. Permanently mark as South the side facing the South pole of the magnet with red paint or fingernail polish. With one marked magnet, it can be lined up and used to indicate the polarity of all other magnets.

Another method is to align the needle of a compass to point North. Bring one side or end of the magnet near the compass. The side of the magnet that is able to attract the North end of the compass needle is to be marked as North. All other magnets can be so marked and aligned to conform to one predetermined indicator magnet.

The gauss level employed is dependent upon the severity and duration of a complaint, together with the age and condition of the patient. It is always best to begin treatment with a low to medium gauss range and then increase to higher strength as necessary. On infants, young children, the frail and elderly, use only low strength magnets.

Finally, many biomagnetic therapists believe that magnets whose gauss measure less than 2500 can be used irrespective of their North or South polarity. It is my experience that the quickest and most dramatic results is when the North and South are appropriately applied according to an evaluation of the condition to be treated.

THE CARE AND HANDLING OF MAGNETS
To prevent them from losing their power or becoming totally broken and destroyed, magnets must be carefully handled. Dropping a magnet or subjecting it to a sharp blow may cause it to lose much of its strength. Furthermore, magnets subjected to temperatures in excess of 400 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit will lose all of their energy.

U-shaped magnets need to be placed on a flat bar or cylinder so that both ends of the magnet make contact with the metal. This is called a “Keeper” and prevents the dissipation of their magnetic power. For long, flat, wide surface magnets, bend a piece of iron, a tin can or a metal bar that can be fastened to both ends to provide a passage of energy between both poles and again prevent its lose into space. Try to keep different sizes and strengths of magnets away from each other to prevent them from bleeding off their charges.

All magnets can be stuck together but they should be positioned so that they are symmetrical in a single row and not balled up in any way with magnets of various sizes hanging off the ends. This is especially true of inferior quality magnets while with higher quality industrial strength magnets this is not a consideration.

Finally, magnets can be dangerous. The attractive force of even two 25 pound magnets is capable of inflicting serious injury to pinched fingers or other bodily parts that may get caught in their way. It is easier to handle strong magnets if they are wrapped in some kind of thin soft fiber such as a cotton wash towel.

Summary of Precautions in the Handling and Use of Magnets

a. Remove battery powered wristwatches and any other magnetic objects whose field can be altered by the presence of an externally applied magnet.

b. Avoid dropping, banging or heating magnets above 700 degrees Fahrenheit as this may dissipate their strength.

c. For U shaped magnets, use a “keeper” to connect the two ends when it is not in use.

d. Be careful in handling large heavy magnets as one can injure a body part if they were to suddenly slam together from a distance.

e. If possible, do not allow different sized magnets to remain together.

f. Keep magnets away from homeopathic remedies, computer hard drives, recording tape, credit cards, videos and CD’s to prevent their being damaged or erased. Magnets should also be kept away from battery operated watches, hearing aids and from individuals who have a pacemaker or any metallic parts placed in their body.

MAGNET THERAPY
Biomagnetic therapy is used for the control of pain, to stop infections, heal bones and scar tissue, rejuvenation of cells and balancing the body’s energy levels. It can also be effectively combined with most other therapeutic modalities. The strength of the magnetic field chosen is based on the magnetic strength, shape and size of the magnet selected based on the following considerations:

duration of the ailment
severity of the condition
total area to be treated
whether the diseased tissue is superficial or deep
the patient’s sensitivity
THERAPEUTIC APPLICATION OF THE South and North poles

Understanding and utilizing the unique application of the North and South poles of a magnet is fundamental to any biomagnetic therapeutic application.

The North pole of the magnet is cooling, sedating and dispersing. This corresponds to Traditional Chinese medicine definition of Yin or negative polarity.

The South polarity is heating, stimulating and accumulating. This corresponds to the TCM Yang or positive polarity.

All descriptions of positive and negative are not qualitative definitions but express the relationship between the opposite poles to each other and outer phenomena.

Indications Contraindications
SOUTH Tonifying, strengthening, building, heating, Yang in nature. Can be used for pains caused by weakness, coldness and deficiency (usually of a more chronic and ‘achy’ nature), also for hypometabolic conditions associated with low energy, weak digestion and weak immune system. Not for acute inflammatory conditions, bacterial infections, cancers and tumors, excess and stagnation conditions, excess Yang
NORTH Clearing, eliminative, detoxifying, dispersing, cooling, Yin in nature. Can be used for acute pains (sharp or burning) caused by heat, inflammation, hyper metabolic conditions, hypertensive conditions, insomnia, nervousness, infections and inflammations. Not for deficiency conditions, coldness, low metabolism, weakness
SOUTH AND NORTH COMBINED When pain, infection or another condition has gotten to a point where the body apparently lacks both the positive and negative energies to fully recover, both poles should be applied. This can be done either by alternating the application of North and South every 15 minutes or by applying a number of both North and South acu-magnets simultaneously over an area. This approach can also be used if the site of pain encompasses a large area. This is equivalent to a deficiency of both Yin and Yang. This harmonizing approach is one of the most commonly used because conditions are seldom either/or. It is especially useful when a single center of the pain or disease extends over a larger area or cannot be discerned. The disadvantage is that if the particular site can be found and appropriately treated, positive results are quicker.

Therapeutic application of North
The North magnetic pole is inhibiting and sedating. It slows down cellular metabolism. Because of this, it is cooling, soothing and retarding and useful for painful or inflammatory conditions such as:

Arthritis, spondylitis, prostatitis, lumbago, chronic and acute headaches, bruises, injuries, and sharp pains, bacterial infections, dysentery, skin ailments such as eczema, psoriasis and ringworm, tumors, mental retardation, epilepsy, cataract, glaucoma, neuralgia, nervousness, insomnia and initially on hernias.

It can be applied for the initial inflammatory response to any injury. When a condition assumes a more chronic state, however, one may need to switch to the more tonifying South pole to relieve symptoms.

North energies over 7000 gauss retard bacterial growth as well as cell and tissue regeneration. In the September 1990 “Journal of the National Medical Association”, it is clearly shown how the North magnetic pole inhibits the growth of lung carcinoma cells. In general, the North polarity tends to have a normalizing effect regardless of the length of exposure.

Therapeutic Application of the South
The South magnetic pole is heating, tonifying and augmenting and increases cellular metabolism. It can be used for the following conditions:

Paralysis, leucoderma, alopecia, hernia (later), asthma, tingling and numbness, to strengthen weak muscles and tissues, comatose conditions, after debilitating illness such as tuberculosis, gastroenteritis, scars, etc.

Because South promotes growth, it should never be directly applied on cancerous tumors, bacterial or viral infections or parasites. For regeneration of cells and tissues, magnets over 7000 gauss are extremely effective.

Applying Complete North and South Pole Magnetic Therapy

The bioelectrical force of the right side of the body is more Yin and inhibitory. If there is a lack of the Yin-inhibitory force, the left sided Yang-stimulating bioelectrical activity will appear to be in excess. This represents False Yang or Yin Deficiency. It can manifests as apparent hyperactivity with symptoms such as high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, palpitations, hyperacidity, etc., all within the overall context of Deficiency and wasting. For these conditions, apply a Yang South magnet to the inside of the right wrist to restore equilibrium and harmony.

If the Yang left-sided energies of the body are weaker than the right-sided Yin, there will be hypoactive or apparent excess Yin symptoms. These can include low blood pressure, hypothyroidism, sluggish bowel movements, general lethargy, fluid retention and edema and hypoglycemia. These conditions are treated by applying the South pole to the inside of the left wrist.

Chronic pains, including chronic arthritic and rheumatic pains may also require bipolar treatment. Treating large organs systems such as the Liver and Kidneys also seem to respond better to the use of bipolar treatment.

To speed the mending of fractures by at least half, dual poles are used. South should be applied to the upper side of the break and North applied to the lower side.

Magnets come in many shapes and forms. Following are some of the more common ones that are used therapeutically used:

BI-POLAR MAGNETS AND THEIR THERAPEUTIC APPLICATIONS

In an attempt to utilize the combined North-South poles various bipolar magnets have been used. In 1981, a Swiss scientist Arno Latske introduced an alternating polarity magnet. He observed that when these bipolar magnets were applied over areas of pain, relief and healing occurred as a result of charged articles (i.e. electrolytes in the blood) that passed perpendicular to the magnetic field as a result of what in physics is called the Hall Effect. The North-South poles of the magnet were arranged in perpendicular strips so that the optimal response occurred with blood vessels that directly crossed the bipolar North-South magnetic strips. However, those vessels did not cross the bipolar arrangement sufficiently had the least therapeutic effect.

Next, a German scientist Horst Baermann, in an attempt to improve the Hall Effect, developed a magnet with concentric North-South strips The problem is that if the blood vessels did not cross near the center of the circle, there was little benefit from the alternating current.

In an attempt to circumvent the shortcoming of the previous two designs, an American engineer, Vincent Ardizzone, of Nu-Magnetics, Inc., NY, developed a checkerboard design that accommodate the random design of blood vessels. While the previous two designs had only two sides per pole adjacent to opposite poles, the four-sided checkerboard pattern significantly increased the possibility of a blood vessel being exposed to cross alternating poles. This design also allowed for the magnet to be cut into various shapes and sized without intervening gaps.

Acu Band Magnets
These are usually 0.16’ dia x 0.06’ thick and come with 0.8” dia Band-Aids. They are available in varying Gauss strengths and different alloys, usually in packets of 12. The most effective in my experience are acuband magnets that range from 3000 to 9000 gauss. Some are marked with a grove to indicate the North side, while others have a tiny protrusion, indicating the South.

One or more are taped directly over or near the affected site or acupuncture points, using either the North or South polarity as appropriate. Magnets with opposite polarity can be applied directly opposite or distally along a line or acupuncture meridian located nearest the affected area. North or South polarity can be used over acupuncture points and/or centers diagnostically related to the primary symptom.

For instance:

For acute colds and flu tape North facing magnets to Large Intestine 4, Large Intestine 11, Triple Warmer 5 and Governor 14.

For chronic back ache that is not inflamed, tape South facing magnets over Bladder 23 and Kidney 3. One can apply a North directly over the acute ‘trigger’ points of pain and further down the Bladder meridian over Bladder 40 (aka 54) behind the knee.

For insomnia apply a North magnet to Yin Tang point between the eyebrows and two North magnets to one of the two Anmien points behind the ear.

For fatigue and low energy apply South magnets to stomach 36, conception vessel 6 or 4 and bladder 23 on the lower back. In addition, one can also apply a North magnet to large intestine four on the hand to help clear any Heat and toxicity.

For promoting the healing of fractures apply alternating South and North magnets directly along the affected area. These can be simultaneously used with North to reduce any inflammation in the area.

These are only a few of many possibilities based on a knowledge of acupuncture meridians and points. It is a good idea to have a razor available to shave off any hair that may prevent the Band-Aid from sticking. Acu-magnets can be left on for a week, taken off briefly and reapplied if they are still needed. If there is any prolonged aggravation or discomfort, they should be removed or reverse the North-South polarity.

Large Block Magnets
These are iron ferrite magnets which can be purchased from industrial magnet manufacturers and come in various sizes and very high Gauss. Since these are made of fragile ceramic, they are not easy to handle. In general one should learn the technique of sliding them apart or together when needed and keep delicate fingers out of the way in case they inevitably snap together.

Smaller ones can be ordered in various sizes and dimensions and are available in dual color to easily distinguish between the North and South polarity. The strength of these magnets may be deceptive. They are usually available from 1000 to 3600 gauss or higher. Because they cover a larger area, even a lower strength magnet can exert a powerful therapeutic effect. Two magnets can be used to attach to clothing, North or South as needed.

The highest Gauss magnets are Neodymium (NeoMax) magnets. They are composed of iron, boron and neodymium, one of the rarest metals on Earth and their strength range from 2000 to 3600 gauss. Their use was first promoted by the International Medical Research Center based on the discovery and work of Professor Goesta Wollin’s development of a Universal Cancer Spiral Theory. Professor Wollin discovered that spirals are found throughout nature, down to the basic shape and structure of DNA. In 1987, the Swedish press widely reported Professor Wollin’s discovery of the Universal Cancer Spiral. He claimed that when supermagnets are applied to cancerous tumors, the magnetic spirals, which are larger, would superimpose themselves and destroy the smaller cancerous cell spirals.

Professor Wollin’s round neodymium magnets were specifically developed to treat cancer. Usually they are sold in pairs. The North sided magnet is intended to be placed directly over the cancer or tumor while the South is worn over the thymus located on the sternum between the breasts. This is used to help stimulate the body’s immune system. While the North magnet directly over the site of the cancer can be left on for a prolonged period, the South over the thymus should only be applied twice daily for no longer than 30 minutes.

These larger magnets are available encased in plastic and color coded so the two polarities are easily determined. The large neodymium magnets or stronger ferrite magnets are indicated in prescriptions for treating most acute and chronic conditions.

Bio-magnetic therapy also consists of systematically laying strong magnetic bars over affected areas for a duration of approximately 30 minutes to an hour two or three times daily. For many conditions the application of several acu-magnets will be more convenient and often as effective, especially for less serious conditions.

Magnetic Mattresses and Mattress Pads
Magnetic mattresses, mattress pads and pillows are designed to provide a sound and restful sleep. The result is that we awaken with more energy, alertness and fewer aches and pains. For those who are bedridden, they powerfully help to prevent bedsores. The best utilize 800 gauss which is safe for ongoing nightly use. They are firm and made with the finest quality patented rubberthane with a grid of nub-like protrusions that stimulate vital energy centers and aid in promoting better circulation and lymphatic flow while sleeping.

The pillow is firm and in addition to the magnets, has a strip of ceramic tiles that help to redistribute heat away from the head. This is because of the belief that it is best to have the head cool and the feet warm when sleeping. Many with chronic neck and shoulder aches and those who snore excessively or suffer from sleep apnea (stopped breathing while sleeping) have received significant benefit from the magnetic pillow.

Because the Japanese have had a long history of appreciation for natural health products it is estimated that one out of eight Japanese use a magnetic mattress sleep system.. This is further reflected in the lead the Japanese have taken in researching magnetic and other natural magnetic products.

A few individuals may experience temporary discomfort when first sleeping on a magnetic sleep system. This is because with greater circulation, more toxins are being flushed out at an increased rate. For these, it may take gradual periodic use over several days or weeks. The time spent acclimatizing to it is worth the investment to one’s personal health and wellness and provides a significant passive contribution long term health and wellness. In the resources section at the end of the book there is a list of distributors and suppliers of these and other magnet products.

Magnetized Water
The proclaimed healing powers of various naturally occurring baths at places such as Lourdes, France, Sedona, Arizona and Jesus Chahin’s well in Tlacote, Mexico, occurs in areas where there is reportedly higher naturally occurring magnetic energy. One way to naturally magnetize water is to run it through 30 feet of sand where it will emerge negatively poled because of the effect of minute quartz sand crystals. This water emerges saturated with oxygen that is able to kill germs, build bodily strength and support the immune system. Water so treated will show a change of temperature, surface tension, viscosity and electrical conductivity. Just as chemicals change weight after being subjected to magnetic fields, so does water. More hydroxyl (OH-) ions are generated to form calcium bicarbonate and other alkaline particles. Normal water has a pH level of around 7, while magnetized water can reach 9.2 pH after exposure to a 7000 gauss strength magnet. This has been shown to be enough to destroy cancer cells.(6)(Barefoot and Reich).

Cancer is practically unknown to the Hopi Indians of Arizona and the Hunza of Pakistan, so long as they drink from their local water supply which is rich in rubidium and potassium in the case of the Hopi water and rich in caesium and otassium for the Hunza people. The salts of these alkalinizing minerals have the effect of counteracting toxic acidity by raising body pH. Cancer cells are destroyed with an enriched oxygenated environment.

By standing a container of water on either the South or North pole of a magnet for a period of approximately 24 hours, one can imbue it with specific Yin, sedating and dispersing properties or Yang, tonifying and coalescing properties. This water can then be taken internally throughout the day. Water can also be potentized by tying or taping South and North pole magnets to opposite sides of a rectangular bottle or jug.

Herbal teas intended for tonification can be augmented by setting the cup of tea on a South Magnetized surface for an hour or so before drinking. If the tea consists of dispersing, anti-inflammatory or sedative herbs, then the North pole of the magnet should be used.

Special magnetic cups and containers for making magnetized water are available from various magnetic product suppliers and Japanese sources.

Magnetic Insoles
There are magnetic insoles that fit in the shoes. One side has small bumps to provide added foot reflexology stimulation to the feet and the other side is smooth. The bipolar magnets are not only in the bumps but throughout the entire surface.

The feet and legs are sometimes called the ‘second heart’ because return circulation from this area of the body is vital to health. Besides being highly effective for all foot problems (such as diabetic and other neuropathies) regular use of magnetic insoles increase energy and vitality throughout the day. Like the magnetic bed, wearing these insoles constitute an effective passive long term investment in one’s health.

Magnetic Balls
These are remarkable because while they have a very low gauss strength, when the balls are rapidly revolved or manipulated they shoot their electrons out for some distances.They can be rolled on the body to relieve injury and pains. They can also rolled in the palms to relieve stiffness and arthritic pains in the hands and fingers.

Electro magnets
These are used by practitioners and hospitals for chronic disease including bone and scar tissue healing, sciatica, arthritis, and sports injuries. Sports therapists were among the first to introduce the use of medical magnets. The combined use of electromagnetic machines with permanent magnets has been found to reduce by half the time required for healing injuries, sprains, tendon and muscle injuries. These machines are especially effective for treating large areas of pain.

Magnetic Jewelry
Necklaces can be used for diseases of the chest, throat, neck, shoulders, sore throat, asthma, irregular heart beat and angina. Bracelets and rings are worn for controlling blood pressure as well as hand and arm pain. They are available in many designs ranging from 1600 to 5000 gauss.

Magnetite or Lodestone
These are naturally occurring magnets associated with a type of iron ore. Generally the Gauss rating is low, from 300 to no more than 700 Gauss. Since ancient times, jewelry in the form of necklaces, bracelets and rings were worn for various therapeutic reasons. The Egyptians believed the magnet had a divine power and wore them to relieve headache, gout, dropsy and to maintain, vitality and health. Cleopatra (69-30 BC) supposedly wore a polished lodestone magnet on her forehead to maintain her beauty.

BIOMAGNETIC TREATMENT OF THE WHOLE BODY
Biomagnetics can be used to treat the body systemically as oposed to their use over specific acupuncture points or what are known as pain or ‘trigger” points.

There is a difference in the energy between the upper from the lower, the right from the left sides of the body. The area from the chest upwards tends to reflect the more positive, outgoing energy. With imbalance, this can manifest to extreme with symptoms ranging from skin eruptions, mental excitation, eye, ear, nose, throat and lung problems and hypertension. For this reason the North magnet is more frequently indicated in this area to disperse the excess. The lower area of the body, below the umbilicus, is often over extended upward and needs South or coalescing, grounding energy. The right side of the body is the more positive side and usually gets the North magnet while the left side which is more negative, receives the South magnet. Thus the following configurations have been adopted for systemic treatment:

Diseases above the navel: Place the right hand on the North magnet and the left hand on bio South for 15 to 30 minutes.

Diseases below the navel: Place the right foot on the North pole and the left foot on the South.

Diseases on the right side of the body: Right hand on the North pole and right foot on the South pole.

Diseases on the left side of the body: left hand on the North pole and left foot on the South.

Diseases of the digestive system: right hand on the North pole and left foot on the South.

Miscellaneous Use of Magnets
Negating the toxic effects of chemicals, sprays and preservatives from food and water.

Using a strong neodymium magnet, pass it over the food or water 7 times with the North or negative facing downwards.
Follow this by passing the positive South magnet 7 times to energize the food and water and make it easier to digest and absorb.
Purifying house water with 2 or 4 magnets

Fasten one or two (depending on the size of the pipe) negative, North magnets against the water pipe leading into the house. Approximately 2 inches higher, fasten one or two positive South magnets. These can be taped to the water pipes.

According to Dr. Albert Roy Davis, water treated in this way showed little appreciable difference in terms of mineral content, solids, pH or other factors. Testing for the relative amounts of hydrogen and oxygen it was found that the oxygen level was lower in the treated water as compared with the untreated. While hydrogen amounts were the same, the hydrogen ions were altered to present a much higher degree of activity. This was checked repeatedly with the same findings.

Water treated with either North or South magnetic field tended to reduce the nitrogen in the water, preventing it from going stale. This made it safer for both human consumption and for aquarium fish for a longer period.

Potentizing seeds
Dr. Davis discovered that seeds exposed to the magnetic force fields of the South pole for anywhere from 6 to 200 hours, when planted resulted in an improved germination and growth result, hardier plants with higher yield of fruit or vegetable products. Exposing seeds to the influence of the North magnetic polarity field resulted in thin, tall plants with poor yields. A simple method is to presoak seeds by placing them in a dish or cup with water on top of a South facing magnet for 24 hours or so before planting.

Fuel Economy
In addition to the above, there are various magnetic devices that can be fixed to the combustion system of automobile engines to economize fuel production. A five star resort in Kawaii, Hawaii, installed magnets on the natural gas system of their multimillion dollar units and found that they were able to save $60,000 a year because the gas burned cleaner.

Magnetics and Cancer
It should first be made clear that ARIZONA UNIPOLE MAGNETICS and the AUTHOR of this website DO NOT MAKE ANY CLAIM THAT BIOMAGNETS HEAL. But it should also be noted that the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) device detects cancer by seeking and mapping damaging SOUTH (positive) magnetic energy within the body.

It is a fact that people are using Negative Field Magnetic Therapy to starve cancer. Research has and is showing very promising results.

Negative Magnetic Field Therapy

Below are scientifically proven and documented facts about this therapy.

Cancer can not exist in a continuously applied strong negative magnetic field.
In his book "The Magnetic / Oxygen Answer for Cancer, 2001 ed." Dr. Philpott quotes the following statements and documentation which support his theory:

"The positive magnetic field encourages cancer growth. The negative magnetic field inhibits cancer growth."
Source: "Evaluating Perspectives on the Exposure Risks from Magnetic Fields" from "Journal of the National Medical Association" 82:9 September 1990

"The biological response to a static positive magnetic field is acid-hypoxia. The biological response to a negative magnetic field in alkaline-hyperoxia. Cancer implanted on the skin dies in response to a static negative magnetic field."
Source: "The Magnetic Blueprint of Life" written by Albert Roy Davis and Walter Rawls, published by Acres USA, Kasas City, MO, 1979

In 1982, Robert O. Becker and G. Sheldon documented that a static positive magnetic field is a signal of stress and a negative magnetic field is present during healing.
Source: "The Body Electric, Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life" published by William Morrow and Company, NY., 1986

In 1996, Raymond Raylman documented that a strong, prolonged magnetic field killed cancer.

Arthur Trappier, in 1990, documented that it is the negative magnetic field that kills cancer.

Dr. Philpott Concludes:

IT IS AN ESTABLISHED FACT THAT A PROLONGED SUSTAINED STATIC MAGNETIC FIELD PRODUCES CANCER CELL REMISSION.

Magnetic therapy of cancer replaces the acid-hypoxia-dependent transferaseenzyme catalysis (fermentation) producing ATP with alkaline-hyperoxia oxidoreductase enzyme catalysis (oxidation reduction) of producing ATP. Cancer cells are thus robbed of their ability to produce ATP by fermentation. Cancer cells die because they can not produce ATP in an alkaline-hyperoxia medium.

Acid-hypoxia is the central casual factor in degenerative diseases in general and cancer development in particular.

The initiating causes of of acid-hypoxia are many, such as, toxic reactions, physical injury, local or systemic stress, prolonged emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies and so forth.

Cancer cells die in the presence of a continuous static negative magnetic field. Both "peer reviewed" and non-peer reviewed publications confirm the death of cancer cells from a static negative magnetic field of sufficient gauss strength and sufficient prolonged duration. A static magnetic field is the breat of life for human cells and the kiss of death for invading microrganisms and cancer cells. Definative negative magnetic field therapy for the treatment of cancer is justified and recommended by both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed evidence. .

Importance Of Polarity
Effects of Magnetic Energy on Living Metabolic Systems

The worlds leading authority Dr. William H. Philpott states in his Biomagnetic Handbook "The application of both a positive and negative magnetic field at the same time in the same area does not serve a useful purpose."

He is basically talking about bipolar magnets which account for about 95% of all magnetic therapeutics sold today.

.Present Day Observations on Magnetics

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Variations in the earth's magnetic field are important to all living beings on the planet. Scientists are aware that this field is in a constant state of flux as it is influenced by the solar winds, shifts in the magnetic core, and the presence of ferromagnetic substances in the earth's crust.

Current research shows that the earth's field periodically waxes and wanes, and even reverses itself entirely. Though the reasons for this are not currently known, geological evidence indicates that the strength of the field gradually grows weaker, reaches a minimum or disappears entirely, and then builds again the opposite direction. This results in a reversal of the North and South magnetic poles. Scientists estimate that such reversals take place about every one-half to one million years. The most recent reversal took place about 700,000 years ago.

Other scientist have documented that the earth's magnetic field has degraded about 50% over the last 500 - 1,000 years, with a full 5% decline being recorded in the past 100 years. Calculations are that if this degradation continues at its present rate, there will not be a sufficient magnetic field to support life within 1500 years.

Interestingly, certain locales on Earth have inexplicably retained the strength of their magnetic fields. Among them, areas such as Sedona, Arizona and Lourdes, France, are destinations to which countless persons travel annually to experience feelings of well-being and to seek healing.

Much research and interest is now directed toward the electrical nature of life. Scientists have established beyond any doubt that all living cells are electrical in nature. The functioning of the cells and nervous system of every living being is based on direct current (DC) and pulsed DC energy. Without this energy, there is no life. Each individual cell possesses a positive electrical charge at its nucleus and a negative electrical charge on its outer membrane.

This positive-negative polarization allows each cell to function in an orderly and healthy manner. As cells perform their normal bodily functions, this electromagnetic charge wears down. The body attempts to revitalize these "tired" cells by sending pulses of electromagnetic energy from the brain through the nervous system to recharge the cells and strengthen the polarized field.

The energy can be diminished or blocked conditions found throughout today's environment, resulting in a host of modern maladies. These can range from headaches and fatigue to tumors and disruption of both circulatory and digestive systems, along with other specific and non-specific ailments.

Noted researchers, including the U.S. Surgeon General, warn of the harmful effects of the "electric smog" from televisions, radio, radar, electric blankets, waterbed heaters, household appliances, excessive exposure to computers, power lines, and other sources.

Sensitive instruments show that man's mushrooming alternating current (AC) electronic technology is creating interference with the earth's natural magnetic fields. Within the typical home or work environment, the AC radiation is sufficiently prolific enough to overpower the earth's natural magnetic field by up to 16 times. In today's buildings, the iron and steel alone can deplete the magnetic field by more than half.

The earth produces its own direct current (DC) magnetic pulses that support the natural biorhythms of all living things. However, as mentioned earlier, scientists are becoming increasingly alarmed that the present-day magnetic field of the earth has and continues to diminish significantly.

A radiation researcher at Arizona State University believes that the ordinary 60 cycle household AC electricity and higher frequencies such as those from radio broadcasts and radar can cause memory loss, headaches, changes in heart rates, blood chemistry and general malaise.

European scientists report such daily exposure is cumulative and contributes to sluggishness, headaches, and both digestive and circulatory problems. At the University of Colorado in Boulder, Dr. Nancy Wertheimer has reported increased cancer among children in "high current" dwellings.

According to Dr. William Adey, an American cancer researcher, this "electronic smog" can block the brains electromagnetic signals to the cells, thereby undermining the body's disease-fighting ability and promoting tumors.

Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D., one of America's pioneers in the field of research on regeneration and electrical currents in living things, has achieved what have been termed "miraculous" results in healing with biomagnetic therapy. He has gone so far as to speculate that electro-pollution, in addition to causing some cancers, may be contributing to the onslaught of such maladies as Reye's syndrome, Lyme disease, Legionnaire's disease, and AIDS.

Kyoichi Nakagawa, M.D., one of the world's foremost authorities on magnetism and its therapeutic effects on the human body, claims that the continuing degrading of the earth's magnetic field, combined with mans electronic environment, is responsible for a broad range of ailments which he labels as the Magnetic Deficiency Syndrome. These ailments include stiffness of the shoulders, back pain, neck pain, uncertain low back pain, chest pains for no specific reason, habitual headache, heaviness of head, dizziness, insomnia for uncertain reasons, habitual constipation and general fatigue.

I think it is worth noting, that in Japan, one out of every five households has some Natural Magnetic Field and/or Far Infrared Field product to assist in offsetting some of the difficulties cited.
