HOW MAGNETICS WORK ON THE HUMAN BODY - CLINICAL CASE STUDIES, MEDICAL NEWS
A. HOW YOU FEEL PAIN
There is no such thing as pain if it doesn’t reach the brain. When a pain impulse is initiated, it must reach the brain to be determined as pain. Our illustration to the right exemplifies this concept.
The nerve impulse is carried to the brain in a manner that is similar to the flow of electricity along a wire. Simplified, the pain impulse is transmitted to the brain via a flow of positively charged magnetic particles called ions. There are several ways to block the transmission of the pain impulse to the brain. One is the use of an anesthetic block. A second is the use of drugs which act on the hypothalamus of the brain to dull the pain. The third is the use of Magnetic Therapy to impede the flow of the nerve impulse. By placing a highly powerful negative magnetic field over the nerve, the magnetically, positively charged ions will be attracted to the negative magnetic field, thus impeding the flow of the positively charged ions along the nerves to the brain. Of course, some of the positive ions will escape, thereby allowing continued sensation. However, our research reveals that the longer the magnets are in place over the affected site, the more effective the negative magnetic field will become, Thus, the longer the product is used, the more effective it becomes. On the basis of this research, Dr. Bakst applied for and received the only magnetic concept patent in the United States (U.S. Patent #5,707,333).
B. ABOUT MAGNETS
Magnetic strength is measured in gauss. The higher the gauss rating, the stronger and more effective the magnet will be. Magnets can be compared to light bulbs. 40 watt bulbs do not shine as brightly as 100 watt bulbs. The same is true of magnets, the higher the gauss, the stronger the magnet will be.
The magnetic field has the ability to penetrate through the skin. Correspondingly, different magnets have different depths of penetration through the skin. A ceramic magnet might have a depth of penetration of 1 to 1.5 inches. If a nerve is superficial (near the surface of the skin) a ceramic magnet will be sufficient to control the pain impulse of that nerve. However, if the affected nerve is 2 -4 inches deep, a ceramic magnet will be of little value. Only the neodymium magnets have the ability to penetrate that deeply. (See graphs of penetration depth.) Our products are the only ones on the market that use strategically placed neodymium magnets, which makes our products superior and more effective than any other product on the market.
C. PLACEMENT OF THE MAGNETS
Magnets cannot simply be placed indiscriminately over an affected site. The magnets must be placed so that they can reach the affected nerves. The placement of magnets over the affected site, and the material in which the magnets are placed are what make our products so unique and effective. Most products on the market do not take these factors into consideration.
Our products are carefully and scientifically prepared. Dr. Bakst, a knowledgeable surgeon, uses the anatomy book to carefully document the position and course of the affected nerve. He then carefully places the magnets in the scientifically appropriate position. In addition, the depth of the nerve is carefully measured and the appropriate magnet is used in that area. That is why we strategically place a considerable number of neodymium magnets in our products. Lastly, we use the highest quality neoprene available to add additional support to our products.Our products are the only ones available on the market in which neodymium magnets are used and strategically placed.
D. OUR PRODUCTS ARE THE BEST AVAILABLE
- It is the only magnet product with a concept patent in the United States.
- All products have magnets strategically and anatomically placed by Dr. Bakst to maximize proper placement, polarity, position, penetration and power (the five Ps).
- Only our products contain and use neodymium magnets for maximum pain control.
- Our products maximize comfort and pain relief.
E. OTHER BENEFITS FROM MAGNETS
Magnets also have been scientifically proven to have a profound effect on a basic cellular level. It has been demonstrated that they increase circulation to the area within the magnetic field. They increase tissue phosphorylization, which aids in fibroblast proliferation and the healing of tissue. It increases the level of alkaline phosphatase at fracture sites, which expedites healing of fractures. It affects the membranes of red blood cells, decreasing rouleaux formation and increasing oxygenation of tissue. There are a multitude of other salutary effects of magnets on a basic cellular level, which are just beginning to be appreciated. So, although magnets themselves do not heal an injury, they increase circulation to the affected area, thereby helping the body to heal more quickly.
Veterinarians have been using magnets to help alleviate pain and swelling in horses. Recently, a group of advanced orthopedic surgeons have begun to use magnets on fracture sites to expedite the healing of some of the more difficult fractures. We continue to receive hundreds of letters from doctors, athletes and people of all professions who attest to the wonders of Dr. Bakst’s magnetic products. Almost everyone who uses our products have obtained relief from their pain. Our products are scientifically researched, designed and are highly effective.
