Magnetic Field Therapy for Horses ©

All life forms on earth have evolved with the earth's magnetic fields. For thousands of years, people of various
cultures have been aware of and used magnets for healing. Although, well documented in physics and commercial uses,
magnets today are being rediscovered for use in healing various life forms.
Although direct application of magnets can have beneficial results, inexperienced people should not apply magnets
if they are unfamiliar with the strength and nature of the magnets. Magnets
can "burn" the skin if left on too long or are too strong.
Magnets can also change the polarity of the body and cause discomfort if too strong or left in a static position
too long. Low level magnetic fields of 5 to 1000 gauss are usually safest and seem to have the best healing affects
on most life forms. The safest products allow the magnets to create a "field" and move with the body.
Using any magnetic field on or near an animal or person can affect the body. Magnetic research indicates that magnets
Blood flow by increasing the oxygen carrying potential.
Changes in migration of calcium ions, thus assisting in moving calcium ions to broken bones or removing ions from
painful arthritic joints.
The pH balance of various body fluids which are often out of balance when ill.
Hormone production from the endocrine glands which can be increased or decreased by magnetic stimulation.
Enzyme activity and other bio-chemical processes.
Documented examples of specific effects created when a magnetic field is applied to the body are:
Electricity is generated in blood vessels.
Ionized particles increase in the blood.
Autonomic nerves are excited.
Circulation is improved.
Magnetic fields can also be used to balance the negative effects of low-level electromagnetic fields caused from
such things as power lines and micro-waves, as well as noxious earth energies. Imbalanced earth energies can weaken
the immune system and cause general weakness in people and animals.
Types of Magnetic Fields
Basically, there are two common types of magnetic field products on the market today; 1) a magnetic field pulse
system which generates an electromagnetic field using electricity and coils and 2) magnetic products which use
various types of magnets to generate a magnetic field. There are several manufacturers of pulsed electromagnetic
field systems today. These systems may operate off batteries or direct electricity using direct or alternating
currents. Magnetic products may use ceramic magnets or various forms of flexible magnets. Their strength will vary
from roughly 300-400 gauss to about 1000 gauss. Most magnets have a South (+) positive pole and a North or negative
(-) pole. Positive poles usually stimulate and negative poles usually sedate when used directly on an acu-point
on the body. When alternating poles are used, a magnetic field of "attraction" is created. If single
poles are used, a magnetic field of "repelling" is created. Bi-pole magnets are made with alternating
strips of positive and negative poles in various patterns from crisscrossing to concentric circles. In general,
alternating fields are the safest and most commonly used, although all forms of magnetic field therapy has its
Magnetic therapy is a safe non-invasive modality that works subtly with the body's energy to bring about balance.
Magnetic therapy can be used as preventative therapy to help keep the body in balance. However, the advice of your
veterinarian or health care professional should be sought before using magnetic therapies in the treatment of any
