Magnetic Therapy

Humans are dependent on an external source of magnetism.

This was proven in the 1960's when astronauts required the use of magnets to replace the magnetic field of the Earth. Before the use of supplemental magnetism, space travelers experienced up to 80% loss of bone calcium.

Magnetic energy is measured in gauss; a unit of magnetic induction, equal to 1/10,000th of a tesla (a unit of magnetic flux density). It has been established that the magnetic field of the Earth, on which our bodies depend, has been decreasing. It has decreased from a level of over 4 gauss, 4,000 years ago, to less than 1/2 gauss today. People are currently healthier in parts of the earth where magnetic fields are stronger. Damaging force fields bombard us almost constantly as we go about our lives in this modern age. These force fields come from household electrical appliances, televisions, cell phones, computers, water beds and electric blankets, just to name a few. They are damaging because they disrupt the structure of our cells which puts extra stress on the body to restore them. Force fields from properly designed therapeutic magnets can assist the body in repairing this damage; thus reversing the effect of the damaging force fields.

Proper magnetic therapy has been proven to enhance the body's natural ability to be healthy and heal itself, not just mask symptoms as many other treatments do in our modern day world. When an injury occurs, the injured area registers magnetically positive (bio-south pole). After a few hours the site of the injury without any outside magnetic influence registers negative (bio-north pole). What this shows is that bio-north energy is present during healing while bio-south energy is present during, and is a sign of injury and disorder. On its own, the body treats injury and illness with magnetic energy, which it derives from within itself (Krebs Cycle) and from the Earth's magnetic field. The Krebs Cycle is the sequence of reactions by which most living cells generate energy during the process of aerobic respiration. It takes place in the mitochondria, consuming oxygen, producing carbon dioxide and water as waste products, and converting ADP to energy-rich ATP. Sleeping in this therapeutic force field coincides with the healing cycle of the body which is optimal at night. The extra energy provided by the mattress pad can assist the body to help heal injuries, pain and many other conditions.

Using the bio-north pole facing the body on a recent injury may immediately start the healing process before it has the opportunity to go through the hours of stress from the bio-south pole presence. It has been clinically established that north pole energy arrests protein activity, draws fluids, contracts, constricts blood vessels, increases alkalinity, acts to sedate or inhibit pain, decreases activity, increases potassium ions, decreases abnormal calcium ions and decreases hydrogen ion concentration. The north pole is the normalizing energy. It normalizes the alkaline state of the body but never produces an over alkalinized condition. It oxygenates the body but never produces oxidized free radicals. It has a normalizing effect no matter how long the exposure. [When we say, "bio-north pole," I am referring to a type of magnetic energy in a properly designed "bio" or life magnet and not the actual poles of the earth.]

These are clinical observations of Dr. William Philpott and others.

Magnetic research has revealed that the bio-north and south pole energies from a magnet have an opposite effect on your body and its cells. Doctors recommend that pain, inflammation, bruising, infection, and most other applications require the use of the bio-north pole. The south pole is not used in these cases because bacteria, viruses and cancer could be stimulated also.

Because each cell in your body carries electrical charges, the bio-north polarity magnets will influence the electrical charge of your cells to a negative (north pole) ionic charge. This is the state that your cells are in when they are properly oxygenated, pH balanced and healthy. A positively charged cell creates and requires low oxygen, over acidity and swelling or edema.

Sleeping in this therapeutic force field coincides with the healing cycle of the body which is optimal at night. The extra energy provided by the mattress pad can assist the body to help heal injuries, pain and many other conditions. As part of my strategy to optimum health I sleep on a magnetic mattress pad, which has helped to heal, restore, and revitalize my body while I sleep, when the body is in its natural state of healing and restoration.

In comparing magnetic products

You may have seen or heard the word "gauss" used to show how powerful a product is. Lyon Legacy International does not directly use this misleading rating of gauss on their products as this value, when used by itself, only relates to the physical holding strength of a magnet and does not apply to the bio-availability of magnetism to your body. It is easy to see with a meter that a 1,000 "gauss" properly designed bio-magnet can be more beneficial to your body than a 2,000 "gauss" improperly designed magnet, although at first glance it may not seem this way. Magnetic energy decreases rapidly as you move away from a magnet. A magnet that has a surface gauss of 1,000 (which is a manufacturers' gauss rating of 4,000), may only produce 3 gauss, 5 inches away.

The best magnetic mattress pads are designed according to all the factors important in creating a properly designed magnetic health product, which include Energy (gauss), Polarity, Penetration, Spacing and Placement (number of magnets) and Frequency.
ENERGY (GAUSS).

POLARITY
The direction of circles that the magnetic energy travels. Bio-north polarity is counter-clockwise and the bio-south polarity is clockwise. As a result, bio-south has a directly opposite effect of a bio-north magnet.

FREQUENCY
Measures speed in which the energy travels. Frequency must be in tune with the frequency of our bodies in order to provide benefits and be safe to the body. Magnets not specifically designed for therapeutic reasons may attract metal well, but may be ineffective or harmful to the body.

PENETRATION
The distance traveled by the energy into the body. If the thickness and type of magnet does not allow it to travel into the body far enough, the magnet will provide poor results.

SPACING & PLACEMENT (NUMBER OF MAGNETS)
In products using more than one magnet, spacing is very critical. Bio-magnets spaced properly work together, rather than individually, and enhance each other's energy to form a complete circuit among themselves and ultimately throughout the body. Spacing is different for each type and size of magnet. Our competitors fail to take this into consideration. Lyon Legacy guarantees our products are properly designed.

Regardless of the shape of the magnet, there is an exact spacing that is required to create a complete magnetic circuit between the magnets and ultimately into your body. The magnetic lines of "flux" which emit from any magnet, come off of the magnet and "seek" the other side of the magnet. If the magnetic spacing is too far apart, the north and south poles will meet between each magnet. This results in a magnetic energy that is less than half as effective, and that also allows the south pole to wrap around and enter your body, which all research has proven can be harmful with continued exposure. In a mattress pad, if the magnets are properly spaced, the bio north (-) and south (+) poles will meet off of the edge of the mattress pad, which creates a 100% true north pole field of approximately 6 gauss to the center of your body.

The magnetic lines of "flux" which emit from any magnet, come off of the magnet and "seek" the other side of the magnet. If the magnetic spacing is incorrect, the north and south poles will meet between each magnet.

When the magnets are properly spaced, the bio north (-) and south (+) poles will meet off of the edge of the mattress pad, as shown in the illustration below. This creates a 100% true north pole field of approximately 6 gauss to the center of your body. Residual magnetism (emitting from a magnetic field as opposed to the surface magnetic readings) should be between 4-6 gauss throughout your body for optimum health.


Lyon Legacy matress pad

“Properly designed” mattress pads made with therapeutic magnets provide the restorative energy to ensure restful sleep. This indicates there are more than a few magnetic mattress pads on the market that are not properly designed and their use can cause harm to the body. Companies that sell alternating and bi-polar products with "patented" alternating patterns for pain relief, need to recommend that you wait several hours before treating to avoid increasing the bio-south presence in the area. I researched for a few years before I felt confident in choosing the best magnetic therapy product. I wanted to get it right the first time and not waste money on something that didn’t benefit, as in the past. I chose Lyon Legacy Magnetic Products, because they are truly the "Cadillac" of the industry. Lyon Legacy products have been designed according to all the factors important in creating a properly designed magnetic health product, which include Energy (gauss), Polarity, Penetration, Spacing and Placement (number of magnets) and Frequency. Magnetic polarity is guaranteed for life. Overall construction is warranted for a full five years but designed to last a lifetime.

Since the magnets are only beneficial where they come in contact with my body, I saw no point in paying for a larger pad that would cover my entire mattress. The crib size Lyon Legacy Bio-North Magnetic Mattress Pad and Pillow insert does everything I need without excess. Plus, I can put it in my office chair, the seat of my car or travel with it on a train or airplane. This was the most versatile and economical choice for me. The first night, and for the next week, I slept on the mattress pad and pillow insert, it's like I was ‘dead’. Then I changed the sheets and pillow case.

I did experience and learn about the negative effects of south pole magnetism on the body. I accidentally put the pillow insert south side up and slept with it like that for two nights before I realized the restlessness I experienced all night, terrible dreams and the way I felt bad the next day, like my brains were scrambled, was directly caused by having it upside-down under my head. The next time I changed my sheets, I did it again, but I caught it the next morning and turned the pad north side up. Since then, I make sure I get it correctly placed with the north side up and I have consistently enjoyed rejuvenating sleep and optimum energy during the day.

The Bio-North polarity of Lyon Legacy Magnets, provides "supplemental" magnetic energy, which every cell in our body is dependent upon this energy for survival and health. In fact, we can't live without it. [I am in no way affiliated with the company - Lyon Legacy.
