All magnets have two poles, one positive and one negative. In 1974 Albert Roy Davis, Ph.D., noted that positive and negative magnetic polarities have different effects upon the biological systems of both animals and humans. Davis then concluded that negative magnetic fields have a beneficial effect on living organisms, whereas positive magnetic fields have a stressful effect. A positive magnetic pole, with prolonged exposure, interferes with metabolic functioning, produces acidity, reduces cellular oxygen supply, and encourages replication of latent microorganisms. Positive magnetic fields can increase pain due to their interference with normal metabolic functions.

Robert Becker, M.D., (Orthopedic surgeon) found that weak electric currents promote the healing of broken bones. He brought national attention to the fact that electromagnetic interference from power lines and home appliances can pose serious hazard to human health.

Kyoichi Nakagawa, M.D., Director of the Isuzu hospital in Tokyo, Japan, believes that the time people spend in buildings and cars reduces their exposure to natural geomagnetic fields of the earth, and may interfere with their health. He calls the condition that they subsequently must suffer from, magnetic field deficiency syndrome, which, he says, can cause headaches, dizziness, muscle stiffness, chest pain, insomnia, constipation, and general fatigue.

Static magnetic fields are produced by natural or artificial magnets. Pulsating magnets are generated entirely by electrical devices. According to William H. Philpott, M.D., of Choctwaw, Oklahoma, magnetic fields can stimulate metabolism and increase the amount of oxygen available to the cells of the body. Dr. Philpott pioneered the use of magnetic therapy for psychiatric disorders. The biological value of oxygen is increased by the influence of a negative electromagnetic field, and the field causes the negatively charge deoxyribonucleicacid (DNA) to "pull" the oxygen out of the bloodstream and into the cell. The negative electromagnetic field keeps a cellular buffer system (pH or acid-base balance) intact so that cells remain alkaline; pathogenic microorganisms cannot survive in a well-oxygenated, alkaline environment. Also, magnetotherapy can increase enzyme action because it fosters a favorable environment within cells (mainly a proper pH).

A negative magnetic field applied to the top of the head has a calming, sleep-inducing effect on brain and body functions, due to the stimulation of the production of the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is antistressful, antiaging, antiinfectious, anticancerous, and has control over respiration and the production of free radicals (highly destructive molecules that are missing one electron, and readily react with other molecules). Free radicals can lead to decreased efficiency of protein synthesis.
