The composition of blood
A magnetic field is
the environment around a magnet in which magnetic
forces act. Magnetic field lines represent the area
around a magnet: magnetic field lines flow from the
north pole to the south pole.
How Does Magnet
To understand how magnets work within
the body, it helps to understand some basic anatomy
and physiology. This helps to understand exactly how
magnets affect the body.
Your blood is a
living tissue that circulates around your whole body
via a network of arteries, veins and capillaries, it
carries nutrients, oxygen, hormones, antibodies,
heat, electrolytes and
to the body's tissues. Blood contains red blood
cells, white blood cells, platelets, plasma,
electrolytes, hormones, minerals and iron.
Blood flows around
the body in arteries, veins and capillaries. The
blood is transported from the heart to the lungs
where it picks up oxygen and then transports it to
all the organs and tissues. Every part of the body
depends on blood to provide the necessary oxygen and
nutrients it needs to survive.
How Do Magnetic
Fields Affect Blood Flow?
The circulatory system
Arteries, capillaries and veins
Magnets are composed
of metal alloys such as iron, nickel or cobalt.
They will attract many different types of metallic
particles. The blood contains iron and when
therapeutic magnets are placed on the skin the
magnetic field penetrates through the skin and into
the surrounding tissues and blood stream. The iron
in the blood is attracted to the magnetic field,
this causes movement within the blood stream and the
increased activity causes the
The increase in blood flow is localized to the area
where the magnets are placed, unless the magnets are
placed directly over a major artery such as the
radial artery (the wrist pulse point) or the carotid
artery (the pulse point in the neck). When magnets
are placed over a major artery, there is a much
of blood flow so the magnetic field is carried
further around the body.
When the body's blood flow oxygen level is
increased, nutrients and hormones are distributed to
the organs and tissues much more effectively and
quickly. Your organs have a fresh rich supply of
oxygen and nutrients to nourish them. Plus the
tissues also gain oxygen, healing nutrients and hormones including endorphins, which
are the body's natural pain killing hormone.
If you have an
or ailment which is supplied with regular fresh
oxygen, nutrients and endorphins then your injury or
ailment will heal much faster and the pain
will be reduced by the body's own pain killing
Magnetic fields also affect the dispersement of red
blood cells. As the cells move along the circulatory system
and through our tissue, these cells "pick up" oxygen and nutrients.
When magnets are applied these cells "spread out" more, thus giving
them more room to do their jobs. More surface area means more
oxygen and nutrient delivery and removal, and more energy. Yet
another way magnet field therapy helps the body to more efficient.
Magnetic Fields Affect Cells?
All cells in the body share common components,
regardless of their type. One of the common
constituents of all cells are
are positively and negatively charged
that conduct electro-magnetic pulses from within the
cell. The electro-magnetic pulses allow the cell to
a cell can not live. (nor could we!)
In a normal healthy cell, the ions are distributed
around the cell with all of the positive ions on one
side and the negative ions on the opposing side. The
ions which live outside of the cell in the tissues
will align with those inside of the cell so that
opposing poles are together with the cell membrane
between them (see diagram of healthy cell below).
This allows fluid,
and nutrients (fluid exchange) to move freely in and
out of the cell, while maintaining the natural
balance within the cell (homeostasis).
In a diseased (injured) cell, the positive and
negative ions do not stay on opposing sides of the
cell. They are disrupted and scatter randomly around
the cell. At the same time the ions on the outside
of the cell membrane also become scattered as they
try to find their opposing pole, this results in
cellular imbalance. Extra fluid from the tissues
outside the cell is able to penetrate the cell which
in turn pushes vital nutrients, hormones and
(salts) out of the cell. The cell's ability to
function is greatly reduced and cellular
degeneration begins, which if not corrected will
lead to the cell dying.
Ionic distribution in healthy cell, diseased cell,
and magnetic influenced cells
When a static (fixed in place) magnetic field is
applied over an injured (diseased) area, the
magnetism penetrates into the tissues and surrounds
the damaged cell. The magnetic field that is
created around the outside of the cell will pull the
ions, both inside and outside, back into alignment.
The result is that the ions once again return to
their correct position within the cell. The extra
fluid that has penetrated the cell is pushed out
(via osmosis and diffusion) and returned to the
surrounding tissues. The cell regains its natural
healthy balance and any damage is repaired over a
period of days (see diagram of a cell with a
The beginning of the
A knee joint with chronic inflammation
A white blood cell engulfing
bacteria, infection or disease.
Inflammation is the body's reaction to invasion by
an infectious agent, antigen or even just physical,
chemical or traumatic damage. The inflammatory
reaction is one of the body's oldest defense
mechanisms. When damage occurs the body's automatic
defense system starts the inflammatory process
within seconds. Blood flow is firstly increased at
the point of injury, the blood vessels widen
(vasodilate) to allow oxygen, clotting agents
(platelets) and white blood cells to penetrate the
damaged tissues. Over a period of hours the
concentration of white blood cells increases at the
injury site (white blood cells fight infection).
Individual cells are affected by the inflammatory
process. Extra fluid that has migrated from the blood vessels passes into the
damaged cells; this begins the process of disrupting
the ionic balance of the cell. The chemical balance
of the cell changes and cellular degeneration
The presence of extra fluid, white blood cells, and
increased blood flow within the tissues causes the
damaged area to enlarge and swell... this is
commonly known as oedema.
If untreated or caused by a chronic "incurable"
disease process such as arthritis,
and spondylosis, inflammation can become chronic.
When removal of the foreign bodies that are causing
the inflammation is ineffective, damaged cells
become fused together, forming gigantic cells with
multiple nuclei (the brain of the cell) which in
turn eventually become
How Do Magnetic Fields Influence
When static magnets are placed over an area of
inflammation, the magnetic field penetrates
through the skin and deep into the tissues and blood
stream. Damaged cells will react to the presence of
a magnetic field by realigning their ions into the
correct position. This begins the process of
eliminating the excess fluid from with in the cell.
Cell damage will stop and healing of the cells will
begin over a period of days.
Magnetic fields will also affect the white blood
cells that are surrounding the
and fighting the disease. White blood cells fight
infection and disease by engulfing infectious and
diseased and consuming them (phagocytosis). During
this process the white blood cells release toxins
into the blood stream. The body can not detoxify and
excrete these toxins safely so they are stored in
the tissues as small hard pockets of fluid (cellulite).
Waste (toxins) are released
into the blood stream after the white blood cell has
eaten the bacteria
show up as ?clouds?
in the blood stream.
When a magnetic field is present in the blood,
toxins in the tissues are drawn out as the
magnetized blood passes through the tissues. The
toxins are then carried to the
for detoxification and on to the
When inflammation in the body is alleviated, the
damage caused by the inflammatory process begins to
be repaired by a fresh and rich supply of oxygen and
nutrients. Cells that have been disrupted and
de-oxygenized begin to heal, and tissue regeneration
starts. Excess fluid is eliminated from the body and
toxins are removed. The circulatory system returns
to normal and the heart does not have to work so
hard to pump extra fluid around the body. Magnetic
fields will stabilize all of these processes and aid
the body in its recovery.
Magnets Do Not
Block Pain Signals, They Treat the Cause of the Pain.
- The pain pathway from the point
- of pain to the brain
Conventional pain killing drugs like paracetamol and
codeine based tablets (di-hydrocodiene, co codamol,
co dydramol, tramadol and codeine phosphate) work by
blocking the pain stimulus pathway. They interrupt
the signal that starts at the point of pain
(stimulus) and travel along the nerve pathways via
the spinal cord to
the pain receptors in the brain.
Depending on the type of drug, the signal may be
interrupted at the pain stimulus or at any point
along the nerve pathway to the brain. Pain killers
only last for a short period of time. Depending on
the type of pain killer and where they interrupt the
pain pathway and the strength of the drug, they can
last from 4-12 hours.
- Magnets do not block the pain signal.
work on the cause of the pain, which is why
static magnets have to be placed as close to
the point of pain as possible.
Trauma alone does not cause all of the pain.
Pain is also caused by pressure on the
nerves. This can occur with out a
traumatic injury, as with long standing
chronic conditions. Joint wear and tear,
chronic damage from earlier injuries or
can cause pressure upon nerves. The pressure
upon the nerves is usually caused by
swelling or inflammation around the injury,
this extra fluid causes the tissues to swell
and thus places pressure upon the nerve
endings. Compression of the nerves causes
constant pain stimuli to be sent to the
brain. This causes the chronic constant
pain, that is often associated with long
To relieve the
pressure on the compressed nerves the excess
fluid in the tissues must be removed.
Once the pressure has been removed the pain will subside.
Magnets do reduce the inflammation in the tissues therefore
they are very effective at reducing pain at the point of
injury. Because the cause of the pain has been removed (
i.e. the inflammation) the pain relieving results will last
for a much longer period of time than pain killers, which
are just blocking the signal. While the magnetic field is
reducing the inflammation, it is also
to the injured area. The extra blood flow
brings fresh rich oxygen, nutrients and
hormones. One of these hormones is
endorphin. Endorphin is known as the "happy"
hormone as it is responsible for mood
enhancement. The other function of endorphin
is to kill pain naturally. As increased
blood flow reaches the injured area the
concentration of endorphins increases and
pain is reduced.
When the magnets are
removed from the area of pain, the cause of
the inflammation will return, as the magnets
are a treatment for the inflammation and
poor circulation, they are not a cure for
any disease process. Depending on the
severity of the injury or ailment the
effects of the magnets can last days, weeks
or even months. Each individual will
experience different time scales for the
return of the pain as the disease process
for each individual is slightly different
How Long Before
Magnets Will Relieve Pain?
Magnetic fields will influence individual areas of
the body in different ways. For example a swollen
knee joint may respond very quickly to the presence
of a magnetic field, with symptoms being alleviated
with in just a few days. How ever the same person
may treat another area of the body without the same
quick response. The length of time that magnets will
take to resolve the symptoms of an
is entirely dependent on the severity of the
ailment, the amount of inflammation surrounding the
injured area, the cause of the ailment, and the type
of magnets used.
Long standing chronic conditions, with large
amounts of inflammation and cell damage will take
longer to treat than a recent acute injury.
The process is similar when looking at different
peoples reactions to magnets. Each individual will
react to magnets in a slightly different way. Some
people react very quickly to magnetic fields and
others will take a longer period of time. An
individual's medical history and symptoms must be
taken into consideration when estimating how long
magnets will take to work for a particular ailment.
As a general rule of thumb, you should not expect to
gain exactly the same results as another other
person that has used magnets. Just because one
within 2 days it does not mean that you will garner
the same results. Many people are only too pleased
to talk about their own experiences with
magnet therpay and while it is always great to hear an individual's
personal success with magnet therapy, it is
sometimes hard not to expect to receive the same
level of response for you.

remains a little known treatment in the field of magnetic therapy,
plus there is always much speculation as to the
validity of magnetizing water. Despite this
skepticism, magnetic water remains one of
magnet therapies most powerful treatments. Many
profess that it is impossible to magnetize water,
that water quite simply can not hold a magnetic
charge. Our answer to these people is... do a
little more scientific research and you will find
that all water in it's natural state (such as a
spring) has a magnetic charge.
In order to fully
understand how magnetized water works,
it is important to know a little bit about the water
that comes out of your tap. The original source of
water is mountain streams, which flow into rivers
and eventually out to sea. The water has had contact
with both over ground and under ground during the passage to the sea. As the water passes
under ground (many rivers and streams pass under
ground) it comes into contact with the earth's
magnetic field, the magnetic charge is passed into
the water and it becomes magnetized. Similarly, as
the water flows over ground it comes into contact
with magnetic rock (lodestone) and water is again
Once water is collected for
consumption, it has to be treated and purified.
During transportation to the treatment plant the
water is carried in under ground metal pipes. The water is de-magnetized by the presence of the
metallic lining of the pipes and when it is
purified and comes out of the tap it is no longer
magnetized. If you drink water from a spring at its
source it will be magnetized. The benefits of spring
water have long been recognized, how ever once the
water is bottled and removed from the source it will
only keep it's magnetism for 3 days before it
dissipates. It is not possible to permanently
A water molecule.
How Magnetic Fields Affect Water?
first site, water seems to be a very simple
molecule, consisting of just two hydrogen atoms
attached to an oxygen atom. Indeed, there are
very few molecules that are smaller or lighter.
(Note the oxygen atom is
negatively charged, while the hydrogen is positively charged.)
Once a water molecule has been exposed to a
magnetic field the molecule changes in several
1. The molecule
increases in size. This increases the water
solubility and permeability (the ability to
disperse and penetrate other substances). The
increase in permeability assists in the
substances, and improves the body's
absorption of water as well as the nutritional
substances. Also, when the size of the water
molecule is increased its ability to absorb
toxins is much greater.
2. The surface tension and density of the
water is increased. The increased surface
tension, permeability, and density all combine
to improve the intake of
in the body's cell structure. Increased
surface tension allows the cell membrane of the
food to expand rapidly. This is beneficial to
digestion. The increase in density also aids in
the absorption of nutrition.
ions in the water are affected.
This has the effect of reducing free
contained within the water (free radicals are harmful
substances found in the body). A further benefit of the
alteration to the ion states of both calcium carbonate and
magnesium carbonate is this: the structure of these compounds
(which are the cause of the scale build up in water pipes,
kettles, taps, etc) changes, resulting in a much decreased build
up of scale due to the looser nature of the ions. This decrease
in scale build up has resulted in extensive use of magnetized
water in central heating systems, water cooling systems in
engines, recycling systems, and

improved blood flow thereby aiding in the
prevention of cerebral and cardiac thrombosis
(clotting of the blood in the circulatory system
resulting in the obstruction or complete
blockage of the blood flow).
Magnetized water greatly improves the
solubility of calcium thereby inhibiting
crystallization and, in fact, dissolving already
formed calculus (any hard, solid, concretion or
deposit in any part of the body, such as
or in the arteries) allowing it to become
smaller, looser, and easily broken. It is

Water as medium is a scientifically proven and
remarkably effective way of radically increasing
the power of magnets. In short, when you drink
water that has been magnetized, the magnetism
travels into the stomach and is absorbed into
the blood steam through the bowel wall, it is
then very rapidly distributed around the whole
Of course the magnetic field
that is circulating around the body has the same
effect on the inside as the magnetic field has
on the outside of the body. It will reduce
inflammation within the body plus increase blood
flow and oxygenation of the tissues, especially
around any damaged areas.
Think about it... when you drink magnetized
water you are tackling your problem from inside
and outside at the same time. This 2 sided
approach will most definitely increase the
strength of the magnetic field at the point of
pain, plus it will also speed up the healing
increasing the absorption rate of
external magnetic fields by an amazing 10 times!
Detoxifying with Magnetized Water
Your body stores harmful toxins
within the tissues (dermis) of the skin, to keep
the toxins from poisoning the body they are
stored in small pockets of fluid, this is seen
and feels like lots of little raised bumps ( the
body can store an extra 2 litres(4 pints) of
fluid containing toxins in the tissues). Toxins
are released during many processes in the body
such as: during the
process; from the breakdown of medications
(particularly painkillers and
tablets); and from the chemicals and additives
in food and from environmental pollution. Toxins
are normally detoxified by the liver and sent to
the kidneys for excretion (expulsion of waste
products). Some toxins are potentially harmful
to your body and can not be safely detoxified by
As magnetized water increases the size of the
water molecule, it's ability to absorb toxins is
much greater! So, as the magnetism of
water is absorbed into the blood stream and
transported around the body, harmful toxins are
drawn out of the tissues and safely transported
to the liver and then onto the kidneys for
excretion from the body.
In a nutshell, you can lose as much as 2 liters
(4 pints) of excess fluid that you don't need!
The effect of losing this excess waste fluid is
that you will have so much more energy, and sleeping will be easier and generally
you will have a great sense of well-being.
The Effects of Magnetic Fields on the Taste of
Depending on the where you live
magnetizing water may have no effect at all on
the taste of your water, or it may dramatically
improve the taste of the water. This is due to
the vast differences in the calcium and
(the minerals that make up lime scale) content
of the water. Most people will be familiar with
the terms hard and soft water.
- Hard water refers to water
containing a high concentration of calcium and magnesium.
- Soft water
refers to water with
low concentration levels.
Rain water is naturally soft -
it does not contain any minerals, but as it
seeps through the ground it can pick up
minerals, such as calcium and magnesium
compounds, from the soil and rocks it passes
through. If rain water passes through soft rocks
like chalk or limestone, it picks up these
minerals. If it passes through hard rocks, such
as granite or through peaty soils, it does not
pick up these minerals and so remains soft.
Hard water causes pipes to fur
up and scale to collect in kettles and in
electric irons and washing machines. If the
scale collects on heating elements it shortens
their life and makes appliances less efficient.
It is also more difficult to work up a lather
from soap, washing up liquid and washing
powders. It can also cause "tide marks" on
basins, sinks, baths and toilets.
If you live in a hard
water area you will notice quite a considerable
difference in the taste of your water once it has
been magnetized. The magnetic field reduces the
calcium and magnesium content in the water, which
softens the water and improves the taste. If you
already drink soft water, you will probably notice
very little difference, or no difference at all to
the taste of your water once it has been magnetized.
Magnetized water may
sound like a panacea for all illnesses and ailments,
but unfortunately it isn't that simple. Magnetized
water has numerous benefits for the body and it will
boost the strength of externally used magnets by 10
times, but when used alone it will not take all the
symptoms of an ailment away with out any other
Having said this,
magnetic water is an extremely powerful natural
liquid that has immense potential for assisting in
the treatment of a huge variety of conditions. As
research into magnetic water continues, we can only
conclude that an even greater list of properties and
benefits will continue to be discovered.
It is perfectly safe
to drink as much magnetized water as you like, there
is no limit and you can never overdose on it. In
some chronic and severe conditions, the more you
drink the greater the benefit.
