The skeptics and career opponents of magnet therapy refuse to recognize legitimate FDA qualified research such as "The Magnetic Resonance Therapeutic Research Project" conducted by Linus Pauling Award recipient '''William H. Philpott, M.D.''' which spanned 23 consecutive years. This well documented research resulted in Dr Philpott writing and publishing 40 detailed. Magnetic Health Quarterly research reports documenting observations, case histories, and the magnetic research protocols prescribed for the management and reversal of over 100 diseases and medical conditions. The polarities of magnets (+)positive and negative(-) are scientifically known to be opposite, and this knowledge is used to great advantage in commercial applications, such as the compass that is used for navigation. Yet the opponents of magnetic therapy refuse to concede that these known properties Could have any relevance in the application of magnets to the body (biomagnetics). DR Philpott from many years of close observation has concluded that the effect of opposite magnetic fields to the biological system is as opposite as night and day. Effects of Magnetic Energy on Living Metabolic Systems-Magnetic therapy authority William H. Philpott, M.D states in his Biomagnetic Handbook (copyright 1990) "The application of both a positive and negative magnetic field at the same time in the same area does not serve a useful purpose."
The following chart from the Biomagnetic Handbook by DR Philpott is compiled from other's research as well as his own observations.
( - ) Negative magnetic field energy:
Pulls fluids & gases
Reduces fluid retention
Encourages deep restorative sleep
Promotes mental acuity
supports biological healing
Normalizes acid base balance
Reduces/dissolves fatty deposits
Reduces dissolves calcium deposits SOUTH POLE-Acidic
( + ) Positive magnetic field energy:
Pushes fluids & gases
Increases intracellular edema
Accelerates micro-organism growth
Inhibits biological healing
Can increase inflammation
pH level becomes more acidic
Encourages fat depositing
* Indirect evidence-characteristically negative magnetic energy normalizes and calms while positive magnetic energy disorders and overstimulates the biological system. Micro-organisms and parasites (including those harboured in the human) overgrow with positive magnetic energy exposure and are inhibited by negative magnetic pole exposure. It is absolutely necessary that the negative field be present during the healing process. The negative magnetic field is alkalinizing. We have to have alkalinized area for healing because you cannot have oxygen in an acidic medium.
