Whilst many ailments can be treated by simply applying the correct pole of a magnet to the affected area, some ailments are of a more complex nature and can only be treated by magnetic therapy after a magnetic diagnosis has been performed. Such a diagnosis will reveal not only the location and nature of the cause of the condition, but also indicate which pole of the magnet should be used to treat the ailment.
The best method is to test the affect of magnets on muscle strength. This is done by placing a magnet on the affected area (or several magnets placed one on top of the other) and then testing the muscle strength in that area. Such a test can include getting the person to raise the limbs on either side of the area (if the magnets are placed over the body), asking them to clench of unclench their fist, etc. The healer can both monitor them for signs of weakness or asking the patient directly if they felt weak. One must compare this with results before the magnet is placed there or after it is removed.
The ideal muscle testing procedure involves getting the patient to resist. For example, get them to raise their arms and try (firmly but not violently to push the arms down while they resist. Similarly, get them to raise their arms (both separately and together) while you try to hold them down. Remember the aim is not to actually stop them, but to see how strongly or weakly they comply. And of course, one must compare this to the control test done before the magnet is placed there.
It is also important to do the muscle test with each poles of the magnet. If there is a weakening of muscled when the magnet is present, this flags that area as an affected area. The polarity of the magnet having that effect is also an indicator of the nature of the problem. Thus, in the case of the stomach, muscle weakness induced by the bio-north pole of a magnet is an indicator of excess alkalinity which tends to slow the digestion and may even cause constipation. Conversely if the muscle weakness becomes apparent during exposure to the bio-south pole of the test magnet, this is a clear sign that there is an excess of acid which hastens digestive metabolism and leads to an overactive bowel.
In all cases the conclusion is based on the rule that if one pole of the magnet applied to an area appears to produce muscle weakness in the person, then treat that person by applying the opposite pole of the magnet to that area. This approach goes beyond magnetic therapy pain relief and into the realm of diagnosing and treating the underlying condition. Such treatments can be supplemented by the patient wearing a magnetic bracelet. As there is a wide variety of magnetic bracelets for men and magnetic bracelets for women, this is an easy addition to the treatment itself.
