Dr Goiz Biomagnetic Pairing and Q magnets

For practitioners of Dr Goiz Biomagnetic Pairing, the following should be useful in explaining the differences with Q magnets and how they are best used.

The Basics:
Q magnets are a Quadrapolar magnet (four alternating poles NSNS) that produce an optimised field for enhanced effects. They are placed directly over the site of injury and/or the nerves that innervate that area so that the magnetic field envelopes the target tissue. So the design of the magnet and where it is placed is important.

 

Why the orientation arrow?

 

Each Q magnet has a black orientation arrow (or triangle) just above the model number. It’s important when applying your Q magnets that the arrow is always facing along the body or limb, pointing towards the head.

Magnetic Therapy Contraindications

For most people, the exposure to static magnetic fields is considered very safe. Probably the most serious risk is for those who have a pacemaker. In fact, one published study stated that small Neodymium magnets (around 10mm in size) needed to be as close as 3cm (just over an inch) to interfere with a pacemaker. Here is a comprehensive list of warnings…

Magnetic Therapy Contraindications…

IF YOU HAVE chest pain, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of an ischemic attack or heart attack do not use static magnets until you have been seen by a physician. If you suspect an UNDERLYING MEDICAL PROBLEM, or your pain is severe and cannot be relieved with the use of static magnets, please consult your health care provider.

With magnetic therapy – Is bigger always better? Is stronger always superior?

 

Using a big hammer to tap in a small tack is not the best tool for the job, so too the biggest and strongest magnet is not always the best option for pain relief.

Device Selection – Which magnet to use? Quadrapolar, Hexapolar or Octapolar

 

There are three different types of multipolar Q magnets to choose from…

  1. Quadrapolar – 4 alternating poles
  2. Hexapolar – 6 alternating poles
  3. Octapolar – 8 alternating poles
    (See table below)

What they all have in common (and what sets them apart from common bipolar magnets) are interpole boundaries that produce steep magnetic field gradients. This is where the research suggests the main pain relieving and tissue healing properties of a static magnetic field reside.

The research clearly shows that Quadrapolar magnets have physiological effects that are not shared with your common bipolar magnets.
