The Number One Cause of Illness, Cell Malfunction, and Toxicity
Good human and animal care includes vitamins, exercise, and good nutrition. These habits provide for a healthy immune system and help avoid getting sick. Even though we live in an industrial affluent country, our pets, and equine athletes, just as we do, suffer from energy loss due to stress and environmental pollution. Together with insufficient exercise or stress from performance and diet complications, depletes energetic balance. Cells no longer function correctly. This situation leads to poor circulation, declining performance, premature aging, and degenerative diseases. To potentially reclaim the body’s natural state of health; cell function needs to be restored. Routine use of Magna Wave pulsed magnetic energy is said to improve the body’s ability to repair cells and recover from illnesses.
Why are pulsating magnetic fields said to be good for health maintenance?
A pulsating magnetic field is said to produce one main result: stimulating cell metabolism. This action is thought to cause a chain of processes in the body that could lead to improvement of health without side effects. A cell produces its energy, called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). This energy is necessary for the function of the body, building up and breaking down molecules, and transporting substances across cell membranes. To produce energy a cell needs oxygen and about 90 other substances including enzymes, glucose, and nutrients. In addition to energy, cells also produce carbon dioxide, water, and waste products. To be able to execute and control all these processes properly, good cell metabolism is required. Therefore, the cell needs a membrane potential of 70 Ð 90 mV (millivolt). Whenever this electrical potential drops, active metabolism is impaired. Low-performance levels and chronic disease are the results. Ultimately, every illness is the consequence of impaired cell metabolism.
The measured magnetic energy produced by the Magna Wave device is approximately 17,500 Gauss, 1.75 Tesla.
What effect could Magna Wave pulsed magnetic energy have on the disease process?
A pulsating magnetic field is said to have a positive influence on many disease process. By displacing ions, pulsating magnetic fields could lead to normalization of the membrane potential.
Some of the effects of Magna Wave Therapy
Blood circulation is said to be affected and normalized. Loaded particles in the bloodstream are said to oscillate in the rhythm of the QRS frequency. This could reduce friction and flow resistance in narrow capillaries. Perfusion (blood circulation) is said to improve and at the same time, it is often felt that the diffusion rate for oxygen and carbon dioxide may increase.
Oxygen partial pressure is said to increase. Many studies are said to demonstrate an increase in the oxygen content of the blood.
Cell membrane potential is said to be normalized. General exhaustion of the body, caused by stress or chronic disease, will reduce the cell’s membrane potential (usually between 70 to 90 mV). If this potential approaches the zero level, the cell dies. A cell uses 50% of its energy to maintain this potential. Magna Wave, with its perceived ion transport system, could enable the selective movement of protons (H+ ions), which are said to then be retargeted at the cell membrane. In this way, the membrane could be hyperpolarized, and the membrane potential normalizes.
Calcium influx is said to enter the cell. Through this potential increased concentration of H+ ions in the membrane area pH value is said to be reduced near the membrane. This could lead to the release of calcium from the protein layer of the cell membrane. With this unbound calcium could flow into the cell core and trigger numerous metabolic reactions. Macrophages (tissue cells functioning as protection against infections) could be activated, and, therefore, the immune system is said to be strengthened. Metabolism is said to be activated and nitric oxide, a potent vessel enlarger, is said to be produced. Also, it is thought that cytogenesis (structure, function, and multiplication of the cells) is stimulated.
How Pulsed Magnetic Works Magic
Atomic excitement, potential to stimulate the spin of the electron to store energy that could last for up to three days.
Molecules are said to align slightly with each magnetic pulse, making them easier to combine, especially when excited.
The pH is thought to go a hundred times more alkaline, which could allow for more oxygen uptake, and potential, for suppression of some harmful entities.
The viscosity is said to shift on the order of 16 fold which could allow liquids to flow into cell gates or lymph to thin and flow.
Red blood cells could separate (taking a positive charge and repel each other) in minutes which allows more surface area to transport oxygen.
There is said to be an apparent relaxing of the vascular system within minutes of completing a Magna Wave session, which could drop blood pressure by twenty to thirty percent.
There is thought to be a systemic response to the sessions as though the body’s functions have been fine-tuned or turbo-charged. Because of this potential many problems may get better, often not the targeted problem, but things not expected may also improve. It is said that wounds could potentially heal in one third normal time.
Bone Mending, improved quality of calcium is said to be produced in one-third of the normal time. The skin of the bone seems to develop cells more like the DNA dictates.
Electroporation is the phenomena wherein the cells gates open to allow more passage of solvent (H20) to dissolve toxins, or allow better delivery of medicine or herb is thought to be improved.
The hardest one to accept is the cell can change some of the sodium back to potassium, which is documented in a US Army study, and this is said to reduce pain, potentially serving to relieve pain in minutes.
The electromagnetic pulse may be causing the body to generate tiny little micro-currents, and the energy could run through the neural pathways. This is said to swamp the C fibers from accessing the neural gates which allow the pain signal to stream to the brain. So the assumption is Less-signal, less pain perception.
The speed of the pulse is very fast (less than a millionth of a second) because of this it is thought that we can use tremendous amounts of energy without there being time to heat the atom. It is said that we can pulse energy into an area for as long as an hour without adverse reactions in most cases, so various problems could accept the extra energy needed to do extra work.

Research into Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy
Although the therapeutic use of pulsed magnetic fields has long been in existence, understanding of its mode of action has been poorly understood. As early as 1940, Nagelshmidt proposed that its action was at the cellular level and this has now been supported by research. It has been shown that damaged cells have a reduced negative charge, with subsequent effect on the flow of ions. This causes a build-up of fluid and prevents the normal cellular metabolism from taking place. Research by Bauer and more recently by Sansaverino (1980), confirmed that pulsed electromagnetic fields can restore the ionic balance and return the cell to its normal functions.
Initially, pulsed magnetic fields were applied mainly to fractures, where it was shown that they could bring about a reduction in the time needed for resolution of the fractures. It has been shown that under the influence of a pulsed magnetic field, osteoblasts are attracted to treatment sites, where small eddy currents are then induced into trace elements of ferro-magnetic material within the bone. Also, work by Madronero has shown that calcium salts are purified, hence bone crystals become stronger. More recently, research by Bassett has been investigating the wider applications of pulsed magnetic fields in the area of orthopedics.
Bassett also foresaw the extension of pulsed magnetic field therapy to other areas of medicine. This has now taken place, with an increase in scientific research and clinical trials in the UK, and throughout Europe, Russia and the USA.
The range of applications has covered:
Treatment of vascular disorders (Steinberg 1964)
Reduction of inflammation and edema (Golden et al 1980)
Enhancement of the rate of healing in skin grafts (Golden et al 1981)
Reduction of pain (Warnke 1983)
Treatment of neuropathy (Lau)
Nerve regeneration (Hayne)
Reduction in symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (Guseo 1987)
Research into these and other areas have shown good rates of success, with no detrimental side effects. For optimum results, low-frequency sustained pulsed magnetic fields should be applied, with specific problems responding best to specific frequencies. For example, pain can be blocked using a base frequency of200Hz as this brings about hyper polarization of nerve cells and inhibits transmission of pain signals. For wound healing, a base frequency of 50Hz is most effective, with a pulse rate of 17.5Hz.
The Role of Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy in Veterinary Practice
Initially, pulsed magnetic field therapy was used primarily in treating horses for resolution of back and leg injuries. This was followed by widespread use with greyhounds, since these incur frequent sprains, ligament injuries and fractures, all of which respond well to pulsed magnetic field therapy. It is now used with other animals for similar injuries and has also been used to improve metabolism. The range of animals treated is wide – from elephants to buzzards! Pulsed magnetic field therapy has been found to be particularly effective in treating leg and wing fractures of small birds, as they often are difficult to splint and, in the worst cases, difficult to pin because of splintering of small bones. These injuries show a good response given daily treatment with pulsed magnetic field therapy.
The use of a 200Hz base frequency as a pain block also has been beneficial in facilitating the examination of an injured animal. Practitioners have found that an initial 10 minute treatment reduces an animal’s distress, so that it will then tolerate further handling in order to apply treatment or to enable the manipulation of an injury.
German shepherd dogs are noted for suffering symptoms which resemble those of Multiple Sclerosis. In the UK, some success has been achieved by treating these symptoms with pulsed magnetic field therapy. There is also evidence from research that nerve regeneration has been achieved under the influence of pulsed magnetic fields.
Once a diagnosis has been made and the desired therapeutic frequency determined, pulsed magnetic field therapy is simple to apply and can safely be administered by the owner. This means that treatment can be given more than once a day on a regular basis between visits to the surgery – thus speeding up the rate of healing and reducing demands on the time of the practitioner. In the UK, trained animal therapists operate under the direction of veterinary surgeons to provide pulsed magnetic field therapy as part of a physiotherapy program for animals. Students come from all over the world to a training center to be taught the methods and how to use the equipment to optimum effect.
NASA ON STIMULATING GROWTH AND REPAIR
NASA4-YEAR COLLABORATIVE STUDY ON THE EFFICACY OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS TO STIMULATE GROWTH AND REPAIR IN MAMMALIAN TISSUES NASA/TP-2003-212054*
For brevity we summarized the 33 page technical paper which we feel represents the essence of that communication. For those who wish to review the molecular and genetic portion of the report, refer to http://ston.jsc.nasa.gov/collections/TRS/_techrep/TP-2003-212054.pdf
Robert Dennis Ph.D. of the University of Michigan, and Thomas J Goodwin Ph.D. of the Lynden B Johnson Space Center
This four year study used human donors "to define the most effective electromagnetic fields for enhancing growth and repair in mammalian tissues." To utilize "nerve tissue which has been refractory to efforts to stimulate growth or enhance its repair regardless of the energy used." (all other tissues have demonstrated growth and repair stimulation with appropriate PEMF)
To define a PEMF technology that would "duplicate mature, three dimensional morphology between neuronal cells and feeder (glial) cells, which has not been previously accomplished."
The PEMF used in the study "caused accelerated growth rate and better organized morphology over controls", and resulted in "greater cell viability" (85% vs. 65%). In the gene discovery array (chip technology that surveyed 10,000 human genes),the investigators found up-regulation of 150 genes associated with growth and cell restoration. T. Goodwin (personal communication) "PEMF shut down each dis-regulatory gene we studied."
"The up-regulation of these genes is in no manner marginal (1.7-8.4 logs)with gene sites for collagen production and growth the most actively stimulated."
"We have clearly demonstrated the bioelectric/biochemical potentiation of nerve stimulation and restoration in humans as a documented reality."
"The most effective electromagnetic field for repair of trauma was square wave with a rapid rate of change (dB/dt) which saw cell growth increased up to4.0 times."
They further noted that "slowly varying (millisecond pulse, sine wave) or non varying DC (CW lasers, magnets) had little to no effect."
Final Recommendation: "One may use square wave EM fields with rapid rate of change for":
repairing traumatized tissues
moderating some neurodegenerative diseases
developing tissues for transplantation
*the first study to clarify technologies and efficacy parameters for tissue growth and restoration.
