Biomagnetism therapy, also known as biomagnetic therapy, is a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that involves the use of magnetic fields to improve the health and well-being of an individual by balancing the PH, acidity and alkalinity, of areas of the body. 

The use of magnetic fields for therapeutic purposes dates back to ancient civilizations, but it was not until the 20th century that biomagnetism therapy began to be studied and used more systematically. In the 1970s, a Mexican physician named Dr. Isaac Goiz Durán developed a system of biomagnetism therapy known as Biomagnetic Pair Therapy, which involves the use of pairs of magnets placed on specific points on the body to address a variety of health conditions.

Dr. Goiz Duran has identified, by pathogenetic codes, more than 300 biomagnetic pairs that are believed to correspond to the majority of diseases and dysfunctions. According to the principles of biomagnetism therapy, the body's cells and tissues contain magnetic fields that can be disrupted or imbalanced by various factors, such as illness, injury, and stress. By applying external magnetic fields to the body, practitioners of biomagnetism therapy aim to restore the natural balance of these magnetic fields and promote healing.

Some of the proposed mechanisms by which biomagnetism therapy may work include:

  • Balancing the body's pH levels

Coupled magnetic placement areas have been found to be energetically connected and the placement of one positive polarity magnet and one negative polarity magnet on the body for approximately 20 – 30 minutes is capable of re-establishing the acidic-alkaline balance. Complex conditions may require multiple pairs to improve pH balance.

  • Influencing the body's production of nitric oxide

Nitric oxide is a chemical compound that is produced by the body and plays a key role in various physiological processes, including blood flow and immune function. Some research suggests that exposure to magnetic fields may increase the production of nitric oxide, which could have beneficial effects on the body.

  • Modulating the body's nervous system

The nervous system is responsible for transmitting signals throughout the body and is involved in a wide range of functions, including pain perception, immune response, and hormone production. Some research suggests that exposure to magnetic fields may have a calming effect on the nervous system and may be able to reduce pain and inflammation.

  • Improving blood flow

The circulation of blood is essential for the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body's tissues and organs. Some research suggests that exposure to magnetic fields may improve blood flow, which could have a range of beneficial effects on the body.

There is some evidence to support the effectiveness of biomagnetism therapy for certain health conditions, but the overall body of research is still relatively new and limited. Here are a few examples of the conditions that biomagnetism therapy has been studied for:

  • Pain: A number of studies have looked at the use of biomagnetism therapy for the treatment of pain, including chronic pain conditions such as low back pain and fibromyalgia. Some of these studies have found that biomagnetism therapy may be effective in reducing pain, while others have not.
  • Inflammation: Inflammation is a key component of many health conditions, including autoimmune disorders, allergies, and infections. Some research suggests that exposure to magnetic fields may be able to reduce inflammation, which could have a range of beneficial effects on the body.
  • Infections: Some research has suggested that exposure to magnetic fields may be able to kill or inhibit the growth of certain types of bacteria and viruses, which could make it a useful at combating infections.


    What makes a good biomagnetic therapy magnet?

    In general, the overall quality of biomagnetic therapy magnets depends on several factors, including the strength of the magnetic field, the size of the magnets, and the magnetic element used to make it. Here are some characteristics to consider when shopping for biomagnetic magnets:

    • Strong magnetic field: A biomagnetic therapy magnet should have a strong magnetic field in order to effectively stimulate the cells and tissues in the body. Magnets with higher gauss ratings (a measure of magnetic field strength) are typically more effective.
    • Appropriate size: The size of the magnet should be appropriate for the area of the body being treated. Larger magnets may be more suitable for larger areas of the body, while smaller magnets may be more appropriate for targeting specific areas or points.
    • Magnetic Type and Durability: Biomagnets are traditionally made of either ferrite or neodymium. Ferrite is more common because it is cheaper and neodymium is more powerful. Both these magnetic elements are soft materials by nature and it is important to find biomagnets that are wrapped with quality materials. The magnet should be made of high-quality materials that are resistant to damage and wear. Normally most are wrapped with plastic, vinyl or leather. 
    • Ease of use: A good biomagnetic therapy magnet should be easy to use and handle. It should be lightweight and easy to apply to the desired area of the body.

    The effectiveness of biomagnets may vary from person to person, and there is not enough scientific evidence to support its use as a standalone treatment for any health condition. If you are considering using biomagnetic therapy, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional before starting treatment.

    It is important to note that while some of the research on biomagnetism therapy has shown promising results, the overall body of evidence is still limited and more research is needed to fully understand its potential benefits and risks. In addition, it is important to keep in mind that biomagnetism therapy should not be used as a replacement for proven medical treatments, but rather as a complementary therapy in consultation with a healthcare professional.

    There are a few potential risks associated with biomagnetism therapy, although these are generally considered to be minimal. It is important to be aware that biomagnetism therapy may interact with certain implanted medical devices, such as pacemakers, and it is important to discuss any potential interactions with a healthcare professional.
