Biomagnetism and Magnetic Therapy: Are they different therapies?
Biomagnetism has become a revolutionary, scientific and therapeutic approach to wellness that differs from traditional medicine, homeopathy, herbs, and natural therapies. It is perfectly compatible with any other traditional or alternative modality. It is an internationally practiced health approach that strives to attain bio-magnetic energetic balance in the human body; the state of natural health known as “homeostasis”. It involves the precise and proper (North/South polarity) placement of special high field strength magnets over very specific areas of the body, to support the regulation of pH in these very areas. By maintaining adequate pH, homeostasis may be reestablished so that the body may heal itself. Homeostasis restores normal structure and functions to our immune system, increases circulation and oxygenation, normalizes the body’s response to inflammation and many more positive effects on our bodies. It is believed that pH imbalances throughout our bodies may ultimately accumulate and alter our stable microbiome allowing for the development of health conditions.
Difference: Biomagnetism and Magnetic Therapy
The two modalities Biomagnetism and magnetic therapy are completely different. Even though both the therapies involved in the placing of magnets on the body, Biomagnetism uses two magnets of opposite charges placed in very specific pair combinations on the body whereas Magnetic Therapy is applied by practitioners with usually only one magnet placing in one direction or polarity based upon two guiding concepts: 1) South Pole side acts as an analgesic and 2) North Pole side acts as anti-inflammatory. The magnetic fields used for this purpose are mostly of low intensity (between 100 to 500 gauss) and are applied for longer periods of time, hours or days, in areas that show specific symptoms such as pain, inflammation or other.
In every magnet, there is a North Pole (South-seeking) and a South Pole (North-seeking) side. The South Pole provides a right-handed (Clockwise) spin to electron flow and has been attributed to an increase in blood flow, fluid retention, and increased pH acidity. The North Pole provides a left-handed (Counter-clockwise) spin to electron flow which can result in sedative effects, reduction of pain and inflammation and has an alkalinizing effect.
By using two magnets in Biomagnetism or Biomagnetic Pair the magnets create a very specific movement of hydrogen protons throughout the body which will either attract protons to a given area or repel and push away protons from an area. This physical property is what allows for such radical pH changes to occur in the body.
The Origin of Biomagnetism Therapy
Medical doctor Isaac Goiz Duran discovered this therapy in Mexico City, Mexico in 1988. Dr. Goiz states that Biomagnetism studies, detects, classifies, measures and allows for the correction of pH imbalances in living organisms. By re-establishing the natural pH balance of the body, different microorganisms such as viruses, fungi, bacteria, and parasites can be kept under control by our renewed homeostasis and natural defenses. The healing homeostasis process occurs when the pH balance is restored and optimized and it is this which determines the well-being of the person, which before the therapy was altered by the presence of pathogenic microorganisms that distorted the levels of acidity and alkalinity (pH) of the organs. For example, all fish need water to survive but some need saltwater, whereas others need freshwater and each one of these must be maintained within a specific pH range. Everyone, who has had an aquarium or pool, knows the importance of pH balance in the water. We are not that much different than fish because our bodies are made up of over 70% water and we have a very specific pH balance that we need to maintain if we are to remain healthy! If we re-establish our body’s natural pH balance in our liver, lungs, pancreas, kidneys, muscles, joints, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, etc., then these organs may continue functioning correctly again. The old saying, “You are what you eat” holds true. If we eat acid-producing foods, then our bodies will shift towards a more acidic pH. More acidic pH is believed to promote inflammation and chronic degenerative conditions.
pH level in our body
The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acidic and above 7 is alkaline. Arterial and venous blood must maintain a slightly alkaline pH: arterial blood pH = 7.41 and venous blood pH = 7.36. Because the normal pH of arterial blood (7.41) arise a variety of approaches based on increasing the alkalinity of the tissues, such as the vegetarian diet, the drinking of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and dietary supplementation with alkaline minerals to maintain a more stable overall alkaline pH. Although these strategies help maintain pH, they may not be enough in today’s harsh environment.
Dr. Goiz revealed that it is possible to recover healthy homeostasis metabolic states through the use of bio-magnetic fields of medium intensity, produced by magnets of 1,000 to 4,000 Gauss, applied in pairs in specific parts of the body called Biomagnetic Pairs (BMP). Not all magnets are alike. They come in different materials, shapes, sizes, etc.
Characteristics’ of Magnets used in Biomagnetism Therapy
The Gauss of a magnet refers to the magnetic strength properties of a specific magnetic material which is used to compare and rate different magnets. Each magnet made from the same material will have different gauss readings based on size, weight, and shape. Magnets for use in Biomagnetism with the Beyond Biomag 3D app must have at least 1,000 surfaces Gauss so that they may provide the proper benefit. Magnets are usually rated in terms of the Core Gauss or the Maximum magnetic force at the dead center of a magnet. This is usually almost 10 times stronger than the surface gauss. Therefore a magnet with 1,500 surface gauss will have about 14,000 core Gauss. In order for Biomagnetism to function correctly, magnets of at least 1,000 surface gauss or 11,000 Core gauss or BrMax gauss or N40 or above ratings are desired for optimal use.
Magnets must be placed for a long enough time on the body according to the geographical location of the user based on where he or she is on this earth relative to the equator which tends to have the most stable magnetic fields.
Dr.Luis F Garcia has trained in Biomagnetism and Bioenergy work with Dr. Izaac Goiz Duran, Dr. David Goiz Martinez, Dr. Miguel Ojeda Rios, Antonio Salas Ph.D., Jorge Tapia (Mexico).Today his main focus is Lyme disease and its associated co-infections among other health concerns that are plaguing the Northeast. Dr. Garcia has been able to combine his Medical knowledge and extensive research experience with his Biomagnetism and Bioenergy work to discover new Biomagnetism pairs associated with Lyme disease and its co-infections.
