Cellular Level Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Static Magnetic Fields

Dec 1, 2019 | Magnetic Therapy, Research

This in-vitro (cell study) experiment demonstrated convincing evidence that exposure to a strong, inhomogeneous static magnetic field (iSMF) for up to 24 hrs has a significant inhibitory effect on the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-α from macrophages as compared to negative, untreated control. There is also evidence that low-dose naloxone with morphine has a similar effect of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines (Lin, et al. 2010).  This suggests that the action of iSMF-exposure may be similar to that of serum morphine.

Also in agreement with the results of this study was Chionna et al (2003) that a 6 mT SMF-exposure affected cell shape as a result of cytoskeleton rearrangements or by influencing the structural components of the plasma membrane directly.

These studies could be regarded as proof that SMF-exposure in fact has a beneficial effect on human macrophages and lymphocytes in-vitro, and as such SMF-exposure should be a worthy candidate of further investigations in clinical trials including diseases with inflammatory background.

According to Dr Goiz, the biomagnetic pairing technique involves using pairs of bipolar magnets to balance pH, improve the immune system and overcome disease. Studies that show positive benefits for pain relief are achieved when multipolar magnets such as Q Magnets are specifically placed on areas such as trigger points and nerve connections.

Why magnet design matters? Learning from Cow Magnets

Magnetic materials are attracted to field gradients and NOT to a uniform or what physicists call a homogeneous field. This is well illustrated with the cow magnet. Cow magnets are used by cattle farmers to safely collect any metal objects such as nails or barbed wire their animal might ingest. Because the cow magnet produces a field gradient along the length of its shaft, metal objects will neatly stick to its sides. This is how it works...
