Which Side of a BioMagnet to Use? It Matters!

Rare Earth Biomagnets should always be properly identified as to which side is Negative (-) and/or Positive (+) Polarity. This is important because your response to the individual magnetic poles will have differing effects on the physiology of the human body.

NEGATIVE or geological North is always marked with the Negative symbol (-) and/or is colored green. The Negative Pole helps the body to normalize and supports healing painful conditions. The Negative Polarity can be used anywhere on the body.

POSITIVE or geological South is always marked with the Positive symbol (+) and/or is colored red. The Positive Pole stimulates all forms of life, including bacteria. Techniques using positive polarity are used sparingly and only for very specific therapies. Improper use of the Positive Pole can be harmful to your health.

The Negative Pole gives one effect
and the Positive Pole gives another
and it really does matter!


Why this warning? Because the first rule of healing is Do No Harm!

A recurrent problem in this science and the biomagnetic health and research industry is that magnet manufacturers, and many people in general, do not understand the important difference in universally marking the poles correctly.

Additionally, some Biomagnet companies are actually insensitive or ignorant in the use of proper field therapies. It is important for you, the end user, to understand the basic, vital difference between the geological North (negative) and South (positive) Pole effects and to be ‘product wise’ when selecting magnetic products to be used for health therapies.

For example: Many magnet manufacturers put an ‘N’ or an ‘S’ on their magnets. But, their ‘N’ or ‘S’ marking is an engineers’ symbol and means North or South seeking.

What seeks the North? The South seeks the North. That means the ‘N’ on the magnet may be the South (positive) Pole, a dangerous pole to use indiscriminately!

This is important because incorrectly marked magnets can give energy that has been shown to be dangerous to your health if you're constantly using South (positive) on an area you wouldn't want stimulated such as an ankle with edema, or a tumorous area in the body, etc.

Knowledgeable biomagnetic scientists agree that biomagnetic applications be very specific in regard to using only the proper poles and that they be electromagnetically marked either Negative (-) or Positive (+).

Based on the simplest laws of physics, the wrong side of the magnet placed over sensitive tissue can cause damage. Remember, South Pole is positive. Positive is stimulating and could stimulate all forms of life including bacteria, viruses, increased swelling, increased cancer rates, etc.

The geological North Pole is negative. Negative charges create negative energy, the calming healing energy. Since so many do not know the difference between the true poles and the “seeking” poles of a magnet, BiomagScience as a scientific biomagnetic institute, has chosen to use Negative (-) and Positive (+) markings on our Biomagnets.

For your safety, all Biomagnets should be triple tested with a measuring instrument known as a magnetometer. This testing device accurately reads negative (geological North) and positive (geological South). The universal markings for these poles are Green for Negative (-) and Red for Positive (+)

Be aware of what kind of Biomagnets you're getting before you buy. Insist on true geological North (negative) and South (positive). Wrong pole markings can be harmful to your health.

Consider Polarities when Using Biomagnets as a complimentary health care therapy!


The Following Is An Overview Of The Magnetic Pole
Effects On The Physiology Of The Human Body --
It Matters!


THE Negative POLE (Geological North)
Green is the universal Biomagnetic color for Negative Polarity.

·         The Negative Pole has an arresting effect on bacteria and growths, and a sedating effect on the nerve tissue; sedates or inhibits pain. Reduces congestion.

 ·         Controls inflammatory conditions in the joints (redness, warmth, swelling)

·         Slows down overactive organs. Decreases activity

 ·         Attracts oxygen, charges and properly increases cellular DNA

·         Contracts the tissue; draws fluid

 ·         Speeds up the coagulation of blood. Controls the bleeding of wounds

·         Calming, relaxing cellular energy - reduces swelling

·         Dissolves build-up of fatty materials. Reduction of fatty deposits in veins and arteries

·         Decreases abnormal calcium ions

·         Decreases bridge lengths between gene transmitter and receptor cites aiding complete neural transmission for better metabolism and faster healing.

Summary Negative Pole:

  • The negative pole (-), North side of the magnet is the pole most frequently used for healing. It is very important to health. Trauma causes the cellular condition to go into a positive acid state. The negative pole will increase alkalinity and reduce acidity
  • It decreases acidity in ailments by reducing the hydrogen ion, increasing pH and causing alkalinity to bring the tissue back to normal. Alkalinity fights colds, bacteria and increases oxygen to the cell
  • The negative pole energy is best used for: arthritis, bleeding, wounds, sores, boils, eczema, skin rashes, burns, infections, toothache, kidney infection, kidney stones, cancer, bladder complaints and, in all kinds of aches, pains, and swellings that have redness, warmth, or swelling
  • When you hurt yourself, your brain sends out negative charges directly to the area to heal. The negative field of the magnet amplifies and expedites this natural healing condition


THE Positive POLE (Geological South)
Red is the universal Biomagnetic color for positive polarity.

·         The Positive Pole is positive energy

·         Stimulates all forms of life including bacteria -- therefore it should never be used where there is an infection

·         Stimulates the organs in its energy field. Increases activity. Also, attracts and increases acidity

·         Expands, enlarges, softens and relaxes tissues by increasing inter and intracellular fluids. Great for backaches

·         Dilates blood vessels. Vasodilator. Can create additional bleeding when there is a cut or abrasion

·         Should not be used on swelling        

Summary Positive Pole:

  • The Positive Pole energy is used for: very carefully under the guidance of a Certified BioMagnetic Therapist for under active (hypo-active) gland and/or organs; such as adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, etc. Also used to neutralize stomach acid
  • Especially important: Used as part of Proper Polarity Therapy for; bone fractures, cartilage repair, back pain, and in the Meridian Energizing Therapy for advanced illnesses to potentate and energize nerve cells

xxxxxxxxxxxxxFrequently Asked Questions 
Is there any scientific evidence to support the use of magnets?
"There are consistent findings from various scientific institutions, practitioners, Pub Med and Medline that indicate this energy supplementation works. When looking at the various tests, testimonials and case reports , it indicates that it has almost amazing results when applied properly.

One may look the clinical research. These tests show how the magnetic energy has increased the Zeta potential (see BIA tests) which has led to the body's progressive healing. Most people do not know what the Zeta potential is. The Zeta potential is the Negative charged energy that is important for cellular transfer, neutralization of free-radicals and reduced swelling. High Zeta potential indicates health and metabolic efficiency - low Zeta potential indicates poor health."

Is there a special way the biomagnets should be placed?
"This is the most important aspect of this science. When one hurts oneself, the site goes into a positive state and a signal is sent to the brain which in turn sends healing negative energy to the site. So we know that it is the negative energy which heals. What we have learned is that the body progresses toward rapid healing with a properly designed and properly placed negative field biomagnet."

"It is important to note that on the limbs, shoulders and hips, it is required to know the proper BioMagnetic placement as one side of each limb is positive and the other side is negative. Although this is known physiology - it has been carefully evaluated and confirmed by voltage testing with a SQUID - a Super Conducting Quantum Interference Device - a million dollar voltmeter which can measure millionths of a volt."

"Since therapies are used to amplify the normal healing charge by using DC (direct current) magnetic fields, it is important to apply the negative side of the magnet to the negative side of the limb. Many people have remarked that it is painful using the negative pole on the positive side of the limb. Just like the DC battery in your car - if the jumper cables are put on wrong poles, it sparks the electricity - in the body, magnetism also short circuits the energy pathways of the body if incorrectly applied. But when used properly, many individuals express rapid healing often with almost instant pain relief."
