Product description


"Birla and Hemlin's book is an excellent introduction to magnet therapy. The solid writing and thorough explanation of concepts may turn even skeptical readers into believers." ― Today's Librarian

From the Back Cover

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH The recent discovery of magnetic receptors in the human brain has confirmed what the ancient Indians, Chinese, Egyptians, and Greeks always knew: that human beings are strongly influenced by the Earth's magnetic field, and that by subtly altering our own energy fields with magnets we can restore proper balance to our body systems. This science of magnet therapy has already been successfully used by more than 100 million people in the United States and around the world. Why is this necessary? Because over the past 500 years the strength of the Earth's magnetic field has been reduced by half, and this problem is compounded by the cars and high-rises in which we spend our time, which cut us off from the natural stabilizing magnetic energy of the planet. Numerous scientific studies have shown that many cases of back, neck, or chest pain, headaches, dizziness, insomnia, and general fatigue are actually caused by what is known as Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome, and magnets can provide rapid relief in these cases. Magnet Therapy presents the history and science of this fascinating subject, explaining in clear language why magnets increase oxygenation in the blood, reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure, reduce pain, enhance cellular regeneration, and may even inhibit tumor growth. The authors detail several methods for treating symptoms ranging from asthma to toothaches, and weigh the benefits of such products as magnetic necklaces, magnetic belts, and magnetized water, as well as traditional bipolar magnets. Readers will find information on how magnet therapy fits into the contexts of Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, and how it can be used in conjunction with acupuncture. Complete with case studies and resource listings, Magnet Therapy is the comprehensive guide to one of the world's oldest--and newest--proven healing systems. GHANSHYAM SINGH BIRLA is the founder of the National Research Institute for Self-Understanding, in Montreal, and Colette Hemlin is a senior researcher there. For more than thirty years Birla has been a student of Ayurveda, the Hindu science of healing that was the first to recognize the therapeutic potential of magnets. Birla has lectured throughout the Unite States and Canada and is the author of Love in the Palm of Your Hand.
