What is Biomagnetism Therapy?
Biomagnetic Pair Therapy— BMP™ is a revolutionary, scientific and therapeutic approach to wellness that differs from traditional medicine, homeopathy, herbs and natural therapies. It is perfectly compatible with any other traditional or alternative modality.
It is an internationally practiced health approach that strives to attain bio-energetic balance in the human body; the state of natural health known as “homeostasis”. It involves the precise and proper (North/South polarity) placement of special high field strength magnets over very specific areas of the body, to support regulation of pH in these very areas.
By maintaining adequate pH, homeostasis may be reestablished so that the body can heal itself. This therapy stimulates normal immune system function, increased circulation and oxygenation, normalizing response to inflammation and many more positive effects on our bodies.
It is believed that pH imbalances may ultimately accumulate and combine to allow the development of symptoms, syndromes and other health conditions in our bodies.
Who discovered Biomagnetism?
Biomagnetic Pair Therapy (BPT)—developed by Isaac Goiz Durán, MD in Mexico City, Mexico in October 1988.
What is the history of Biomagnetism Therapy?
Dr. Isaac Goiz of Mexico first discovered the medically healing power of “pairs” of magnets over 33 years ago. His revolutionary discovery was inspired after he attended a course on bioenergy held at the medical school of the University of Guadalajara in Mexico, taught by Dr. Richard Broeringmeyer.
Dr. Broeringmeyer shared that the body’s organs and tissues can become magnetically polarized. He used the technique of Kinesiology (muscle test) to locate magnetic polarizations (and pH alterations) in the body.
Inspired and enthused, Dr Goiz experimented with single-poled magnets in pairs and monitored the body’s responses to these applications. Dr. Goiz discovered the first biomagnetic pair consisting of the thymus and rectum on one of his patients. In the years that followed,
Dr. Goiz and his associates researched and uncovered hundreds of biomagnetic pairs. These “Biomagnetic pairs” are meticulously tested in healthcare facilities all over the world.
How does BioMagnetic Pair Therapy help our body?
The BMP (BioMagnetic Pair) studies, detects, classifies, measures and allows the correction of pH imbalances in living organisms. By reestablishing the natural pH balance of the body, different microorganisms such as virus, fungi, bacteria and parasites can be kept under control by our renewed natural defenses.
Can you explain BMP in layman terms with an example?
For example, when you take a fish out of water, it can no longer survive in that new environment no matter how much oxygen or light is available. All fish need water to survive but some need saltwater, whereas others need freshwater.
Also everyone who has had an aquarium or pool knows of the importance of pH balance in the water. We are no different. Our body is made up of over 65% water and has a very specific pH balance that it needs to maintain if we are to remain healthy!
If we reestablish our body’s natural pH balance in our liver, lungs, pancreas, kidneys, muscles, joints, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, etc.then these organs may begin working correctly again. The old saying, “You are what you eat” holds true.
If we eat acid-producing foods, then our bodies will shift towards a more acidic pH. More acidic pH is believed to promote inflammation and chronic conditions such as cancer, among others.
What is the importance of pH balance?
The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acidic and above 7 is alkaline. Arterial and venous blood must maintain a slightly alkaline pH: arterial blood pH = 7.41 and venous blood pH = 7.36.
Because the normal pH of arterial blood is 7.41, this has given rise to a variety of approaches based on increasing the alkalinity of the tissues, such as a vegetarian diet, the drinking of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, and dietary supplementation with alkaline minerals to maintain body pH.
Although these strategies help maintain pH, they may not be enough in today’s harsh environment.
Can the healthy metabolic state be regained using Biomagnetism?
Dr Goiz revealed that it is possible to recover a healthy metabolic states through the use of magnetic fields of medium intensity, produced by biomagnetic magnets of 1,000 to 4,000 Gauss, applied in pairs in specific parts of the body called Biomagnetic Pairs (BMP).
This approach is a type of biofeedback, where the Biomagnetic Pairs complement each other, leading to homeostasis. Whereas any size magnet can be used at any anatomical point, some sizes are more convenient at certain points. Our Large magnets are convenient to use on the legs and the back. Our Medium magnets are convenient to use on the thorax, abdomen, and arms. Our small magnets are convenient to use on the head, neck, and hands. Our Mini magnets are convenient to use on the eyes, nose, fingertips and on top of other magnets when the same point is required for an additional pair. As well, there are varied individual preferences for different sizes.
How does BMP actually work?
By applying these BMP at specific locations of the body, the reestablishment of the proper pH is permitted in that area, and when present, pathogens cannot survive in this pH environment.
Cells become healthy and the body starts healing itself. Finally, the healing process occurs when the pH is balanced and reaches its optimal level that determines the well-being of the person, which before the therapy was altered by the presence of pathogenic microorganisms that distorted the levels of acidity and alkalinity (pH) of the organs. This is what sustains the bio-energetic phenomenon.
Is Biomagnetism similar to magnet therapy?
No, It is not similar to magnet therapy. Magnet therapy has been applied with one polar principle just for dysfunction or injuries under two concepts: a) South pole as analgesic, b) North pole as anti-inflammatory. The magnetic fields used for this purpose are of low intensity (between 100 to 500 gauss) and are applied for longer periods of time, hours or days, and in areas that show specific symptoms.
Biomagnetism and bioenergetic pairs are vibrational phenomena , not related to standard medicine, as they do not suppress symptoms or claim to “cure” disease as licensed medicine claims . The time it takes for the application of the therapy varies from 20 to 90 minutes depending on the person’s location in relation to the equator, as explained during the certification course.
How do I understand BMP with regards to the AMA Code of Ethics?
The AMA Code of Ethics explains the distinction between therapies such as BMP and the licensed practice of medicine.
While “treatment which has no scientific basis” is condemned (Opinion 3.01), under Opinion 3.04, physicians are free to “refer” a patient “for therapeutic or diagnostic services to another physician, limited practitioner or any other provider of health care services permitted by law to furnish such services, whenever he or she believes that this may benefit the patient.”
Thus, unscientific “treatment” is distinguished from “health care services permitted by law.” “Treatment” — which means the use of standard medicine and surgery to “cure” disease — is distinguished from other health care services (therapies) which need only meet the lesser “may benefit” standard.
Is a prescription required to take Biomagnetism therapy?
While physicians “prescribe” treatments for disease, therapies that may benefit may merely be subject to “referral” thereby further indicating the distinction.
Thus, for example, BMP, used to support normal structure and function, to support therapeutic outcomes, can be seen to complement licensed medicine, but not to be held to its strictures, nor limited in its practice to licensed physicians.
Since such therapies are not prescription services, members of the public may choose such services without the permission of their physician.
Who can practice Biomagnetism?
Certified Biomagnetic Practitioners, unless separately licensed to do so, do not diagnose or prescribe for medical or psychological conditions nor claim to prevent, treat, mitigate or cure such conditions, nor provide diagnosis, care, treatment or rehabilitation of individuals, nor apply medical, mental health or human development principles
But rather provide traditional ministerial counseling, bioenergetic, biofeedback, herbal and/or nutritional modalities that may offer therapeutic benefit by supporting normal structure and function.
