As the experts say, "Magnetic Field Therapy
as a new procedure, is the Medicine of the future." "They are safe, cheap,
and effective in treatment of disease from heart, pain, skin, tissue, and
bone regeneration, nerve and spinal cord regeneration to cancer."
THE IMPORTANCE OF
Magnetic fields are
everywhere. There are all types of waveforms, intensities, and frequencies.
Magnetic fields bathe the whole Earth and have significant effects on living
organisms. Magnetic fields cannot be felt, sensed, or seen like patterns of
light, or heard like sounds, so their biological effects have largely gone
unnoticed. But there is a lot to learn about magnetism and its relationship
to the whole Earth, the Sun, the planets, and all the stars and galaxies.
Did you know, for example,
that magnetism is of so much interest to scientists and some branches of
governments of the world that there has been international coordination of
magnetic field measurements of the Earth for almost two hundred years! Not a
long time, but that is because sensitive instruments for measuring magnetic
fields have only been around that long.
Did you know that there
are special magnetic observatories located all over the Earth and that there
have been dedicated scientists that have devoted their entire careers to
just making careful measurements of Earth’s magnetic field, and recording
them faithfully year after year so that other people can make use of them.
And these scientists, now, and two hundred years ago, had no inkling of the
importance of magnetism on living things.
Even today most scientists
studying magnetism in industry, in astronomical observatories, and
government laboratories do not realize the powerful influences that magnetic
fields have on human behavior; they are mostly concerned about the possible
effects of magnetic fields on communications instruments.
Former President Reagan had one
of the satellites which was designed to study the Sun shot down for target
practice! This was ironic indeed, since Solar activity appears to be one of
the most salient factors in triggering wars.

As you read these words,
satellites are floating overhead measuring magnetic fields of Earth. For
instance there satellites called GOES (Geosynchronous Orbiting Earth
Satellites) which have provided continuous magnetometer data since July
l971. Usually two GOES satellites operate simultaneously, but at this time
there is only one. They float about 28,000 miles out in space, their speed
exactly synchronized with Earth’s rotation rate so that they don’t appear to
move at all. They are usually located at
and 135° west longitude.
Their distance from Earth allows continuous day and night observation of the
The magnetic sensors on
these satellites consist of a pair of little spinning coils. When a coil of
wire moves in a magnetic field the electrons in the moving wires are pushed
to and fro. Since they cannot escape from the wires, they produce
what we call an electric current. This tiny current is detected by
amplifiers in the satellite and the resultant voltages gives a continuous
measure of the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field.
The measurements provide
the field intensity in three directions: parallel to Earth’s surface in a
north—south direction, parallel to
Earth’s surface in the
and in the up—down or in—out direction. Field strength changes as
small as 2 millionths
of a gauss can be measured by these sensors. Incredible as it seems,
human beings may be sensitive to changes of this magnitude.
The GOES satellites also
have detectors for protons and
electrons emitted by the
Sun (the solar wind). It’s important to detect and measure the flow of these
particles because they can interfere with satellite instruments, or injure
astronauts or passengers in high—altitude aircraft. They can also influence
the weather and cause magnetic storms.
X—rays from the Sun are
also measured by an ion chamber placed aboard the GOES satellites. X—rays
often indicate the start of solar flares which tells us that electrons and
protons will be whizzing by in a day or two.
Apparently all the stars
have magnetic fields, some of them are more than 1,000 times as strong as
the Sun’s. Could these distant magnetic fields affect life on Earth? It may
be no coincidence that the stars known as PULSARS have strong magnetic
fields and most of these PULSARS pulse at frequencies in the brain wave
range from 4 to 30 Hz. Since we can detect magnetic fields with our
instruments, perhaps people can detect them too. After all, we are the most
complex, most sensitive, ‘machines’ around.
