 Magnetic Therapy: Stress Reduction, Health Maintenance and Anti-aging Can Be Made Simple  
 

For what application(s) is the modality of magnetic field therapy best suited?

Because magnetic fields act on many specific physical processes, they can be used in almost any kind of illness, either as a prevention or treatment. The primary actions of magnetic fields include: muscle relaxation, increased circulation, pain reduction, reduced nerve irritability, enhanced tissue and bone healing, reduction in swelling, bruising and inflammation, decreased clotting, improvement in scars, enhancement of acupuncture and rebalancing of the sympathetic/parasympathetic system. The nervous system is particularly sensitive to magnetic fields.

Like acupuncture, magnetic fields appear to act in a more obvious fashion when obvious imbalances exist, such as pain, scars, injuries, etc. In the presence of chronic health problems, sleep disturbance and mood disorder are common. Once therapy begins these problems are often the first to respond. Even if therapy is stopped during the course of care, healing often continues for some time after. Health problems from deficiencies, such as low thyroid, in hypothyroidism, low insulin in pancreatic dysfunction, anemia from lack of iron, will not be cured by magnetic fields. Only the missing substances can properly treat the problem. Magnetic fields cannot be used as a sole therapy for cancer. Often however they can be used to supplement traditional cancer therapies, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. The use of medications is usually enhanced with magnetic fields. This means that magnetic fields do not interfere with most medical therapies and in fact appear to enhance them. Magnetic therapy has saved numerous people from needing surgery, in selected circumstances.

Dr. Pawluk’s philosophical statement.

Humans are souls with bodies -- not bodies with souls. Our legacy prior to and after this physical existence is much grander than can be imagined. True health only comes when the soul is balanced. Health does not equal happiness. Happiness does produce health. Newtonian physics is a physics of direct cause and effect, in a perceived "material" particle-based, molecular world. Newtonian physics clashes with quantum physics only for those who can't imagine a grander picture. Many complementary and integrative therapies are more quantum than Newtonian. The difference is like plowing fields by hand or using a large diesel tractor. Another example is like walking from Washington to New York vs. taking the Concorde. Surgery, which sometimes can be lifesaving, is savagery, whereas self-healing with imagery is elegant - Newtonian vs. Quantum. Both systems have their place. Neither one can discount the other. It takes wisdom, from both the individual seeking care and the practitioner, to know the difference.

Complementary practitioners, like medical physicians, who know only one art may be very skilled at their art but can’t speak from experience about others they don’t use. The more disciplines, from very different orientations that a practitioner knows, the less tunnel vision there is and the more likely the treatment selected will be appropriate to the problem being treated. Square pegs won’t get put in round holes by mistaken faith.

Magnetic fields can be as strong as surgery or as gentle as quantum fields. Ultimately, the soul and the body are electromagnetic. All magnetic fields interact. When the body (or the soul) is out of balance, the electromagnetic fields of the body (or soul) are out of balance. Magnetic field therapies can help to restore some or all of these imbalances. Before the body gets out of serious imbalance, unless there is a sudden trauma, it must go through progressive stages of imbalance, from energetic imbalance through physiologic imbalance to a pathophysiologic stage and then to a pathologic stage. This latter is organ or tissue death. Magnetic fields work best in the earlier stages of imbalances. With severe imbalances more drastic measures are usually required, such as surgery, chemotherapy, etc. Magnetic fields would be least obvious in their benefit in these latter stages but could still be very helpful in a complementary fashion.
