Biomagnetics: The Magnetic Answer

By William H. Philpott, M.D.

The Value of Using Negative Magnetic Energy in Diabetes Mellitus

(Contains some professional-level material.)

Central to the non-insulin dependent diabetic (Type II diabetes)

is insulin resistance. Over the past twenty years, I have tested

several thousand patients for disordered carbohydrate metabolism in

relationship to single-food test meals. Several hundred of these

were also tested for insulin response to single-food test meals

which were also correlated with the degree of carbohydrate disorder.

The primary diagnosis of these patients was a wide spectrum of

physical and mental disorders, including several hundred maturity-

onset diabetes cases and a few insulin dependent juvenile diabetics.

From these studies, solid evidence emerged that the insulin

resistance of Type II non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus is

produced by maladaptive reactions largely to foods and, to a lesser

extent, common environmental chemicals.

There is a routine clearance of insulin resistance as well as the

carbohydrate disorder by avoidance of the foods and substances

evoking the maladaptive reactions, which consist of an array of

Page 1





physical and emotional symptoms as well as higher-than-normal blood

sugar response.

The carbohydrate disorder, of brief duration, and the chronic

carbohydrate disorders justifying the diagnosis of Diabetes Mellitus

Type II behave alike. Therefore, it is concluded that Diabetes

Mellitus Type II is simply an extension of these lesser carbohydrate

disorders. Both are readily reversed by avoidance of the

maladaptive reactive substance. Thus, initial avoidance (usually

three months) and later spacing by rotation with a frequency

(usually of four days or more) the symptoms and carbohydrate

reaction, both the minor and major carbohydrate disorders and the

insulin resistance, is initially corrected and remains corrected.

Unfortunately, there is a low level of awareness of the ecologic

causes of insulin resistance carbohydrate disorder. The stress of

obesity has been highlighted for its significance since some 80% of

diabetics at the time of their onset are obese. This obesity

certainly is a significant stress that could be corrected. However,

surprisingly, the insulin resistance and the carbohydrate disorder

was corrected immediately by avoidance and spacing before there was

any time for weight reduction to have occurred.

It is a strange fact of scientific medicine that this is so

little known despite the fact that a statistical verification has

been published in the right place, that is, the Journal of Diabetes.

For years, it has been the custom to consider the presence and level

of hormones and enzymes to be the producer of biological reactions,

without any consideration of an energy source making such reactions

possible. This belief in spontaneously occurring biological

responses is no longer tenable now that we understand the role of

electromagnetics as the energy that governs biological responses.

Specifically, it is the energy of magnetism which makes

biological responses possible. For years, it was customary to

consider magnetism as one unit of energy. However, it has been

demonstrated conclusively that magnetism is two energies THAT HAVE

OPPOSITE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS when these energies are separated. It

is the balance between these two energies that governs metabolism.

Magnetism is a push and pull system. The CLOCKWISE spin of a

positive magnetic field PUSHES and the COUNTERCLOCKWISE spin of the

negative magnetic field PULLS. This can be illustrated by the

energy of a moving object such as a car. The front end of a car

pushes while the back end of a car pulls, yet the moving car is one

unit of energy, however, with two opposite effects.

It also should be understood that negative magnetic fields and

positive magnetic fields are both magnetic energy with 180 degrees

opposite response in biological systems. Life energy is the balance

between these two systems. An example is acid-base balance. The

positive magnetic pole is acidifying and the negative magnetic pole

is alkalinizing in terms of biological response to single magnetic

fields from a unipoled magnet.

Biological life has a balance between acidity and alkalinity.

There is evidence that atheromatous plaques are the result of amino

acids crosslinking sulphur and fatty acid bonds when the pH of the

blood drops below normal. There is clinical evidence justifying the

Page 2





conclusion that a negative magnetic field keeps the pH buffer system

intact, thus preventing crosslinking and also that thecrosslinking

can be reversed by a negative magnetic field.

Another important issue is the demonstrated evidence that the

positive magnetic pole is inflammatory- evoking and the negative

magnetic pole is anti-inflammatory and inflammatory resolving.

Understanding the oppositeness of biological responses evoked by the

separate positive and negative magnetic fields is critically

important, because with this knowledge, exposure of tissues to

single magnetic poles can provide a predictable, governing

capability over the biological responses being evoked in those


It has been my custom to routinely correlate saliva pH with

maladaptive reactions to foods and chemicals. These reactions are

routinely acid. They can be controlled by a negative magnetic

field. Inflammation and an associated acidity can be controlled by

exposure to a negative magnetic field. How can we understand the

cause of insulin resistance being caused by maladaptive reactions to

foods, chemicals and inhalants?

The formulation is on this order:

these maladaptive reactions, whether they be allergic,

addictive, toxic or otherwise unexplainable inflammatory

reactions, cause an inflammation edema of cells and whole tissue

groups to occur.

Insulins’ assignment is to carry blood glucose through the cell

wall into the cell. A cell and its membrane that is swollen

cannot make proper use of insulin, thus the blood sugar remains

in the blood and is not transferred into the cell.

When these cells or tissues are placed in a negative magnetic

field, the inflammatory edema is corrected and insulin works as

it should. Therefore, not only should we use avoidance and

spacing of maladaptive reacting substances, but also tissue

exposure to negative magnetic field energy to make a correction

of the insulin resistance in maturity-onset diabetes mellitus.

Exposure to negative magnetic field energy ahead of a meal has

been conclusively demonstrated as materially reducing the

chances of a maladaptive reaction to foods.

Maladaptive reactions to most environmental substances are

essentially the same process as maladaptive reactions to foods. If

and when a reaction does occur, it can readily be corrected by

placing those reactive tissues in a negative magnetic field. The

inflammatory reactions occurring due to the diabetes mellitus

disease process reduce oxygen to tissue, encourage invasion of

microorganisms (viruses, fungi and bacteria), produce inflammation

of arteries with atheromatous plaque buildup and create many other

tissue and nerve degenerative disease processes of diabetes


However, the most important thing we can understand is that this

diabetes mellitus disease process exists because there is an

imbalance between the positive and negative magnetic field energies

Page 3





where positive magnetic energy has the ascendancy over the negative

magnetic energy. Direct tissue exposure to negative magnetic energy

can do much to correct this magnetic energy imbalance disorder.


Testing blood sugar one hour after meals of single foods is the

most important test. Physical or mental symptoms are also examined

at the same time. Only about a third of the foods that produce

symptoms also produce a high blood sugar. All maladaptive reactions

are considered important and serve as indicators of the need for

initial avoidance and later spacing on a four-day, diversified

rotation basis.

Before starting deliberate food testing, it is necessary to go

through five days of either fasting or preferably the infrequent

eating of foods. During this five day avoidance period, it is

important to be monitoring the saliva pH, and if the saliva pH drops

below 6.4, then it is important to take sufficient soda bicarb

frequently enough to keep the saliva pH at about, and preferably

above, 6.4.

It can also be helpful to provide during the first three days for

intravenous Vitamin C (12 .5 grams), B-6 (100mg), B-5 (200mg),

Calcium (250mg) and Magnesium (250mg).

It requires a month of four meals per day to go through the

deliberate food testing. It is well, but not always necessary, to

have the usual classical examination for inhalants. The inhalants

are not usually highly significant. It is largely the reactions to

food that is significant.

An insulin-dependent diabetic cannot be tested this way and the

foods must be tested otherwise than by deliberate food tests. It is

significant to run IgG food tests and honor the evidence of IgG

allergic reactions to foods. It should be understood, however,

that initial maturity-onset diabetics become insulin dependent only

after a long period of degeneration. Two-thirds are not insulin

dependent, even though they are taking insulin.

This can soon be discovered as a person tries the five days of

avoidance. Regular insulin can be used to cover the insulin needs

when it is demonstrated that this is necessary. It is important to

study the diabetic for nutritional disorders of vitamins, minerals,

amino acids and essential fats. Quantitative studies for these

should be done. It is also important to do functional studies for

B-6 by the Tryptophan Loading Test and the EGPT. Folic Acid needs

should be examined by the FIGLU Test and B-12 needs by the

Methylamalonic Acid spillage of the urine. It can be demonstrated

that there usually are enzyme disorders by studying assays for ESOD,

MAO and lipid peroxide.

This helps explain the persons weakness and reduced ability for

processing toxins. These tests also serve as a way to monitor

improvement during treatment. If there is any historical reason to

examine for toxins, they should be examined for, especially spillage

of lead in the urine. The infectious state should be assessed. This

especially includes viral infections, including Herpes Simplex,


Page 4





Epstein-Barr, Cytomegalo, HHV-6 and Coxsackie virus. These can be

examined for antibody levels to determine current activity.

Candida should be studied by culture from the vagina, the rectal

area, the stool, the mouth as well as antibody studies. Both the

citric acid cycle and urea cycle are disordered in diabetes

mellitus. To test for the rise in ammonia caused by the urea cycle

disorder, it well to test both arterial and venus ammonia two hours

after an 80% protein stress meal.


It has been said that to understand diabetes is to understand

disease. Virtually any metabolic system or any organ can

deteriorate with diabetes. Micro-organism infections flourish in

diabetes. Atherosclerotic development is accelerated in diabetes.

Muscle waste (amyotrophia), nerve degeneration (neuropathy) and

varied inflammatory reactions develop in diabetes.

Negative magnetic energy can be quite valuable in treating many

of the complications of diabetes mellitus, especially such as

infections, pain, atherosclerosis, etc. An elderly man with gangrene

of a foot was undergoing EDTA chelation which was not adequately

handling this problem. The gangrenous foot was so severe that the

foot was scheduled to be surgically removed in one week.

The negative pole of a 4 X 6 X 1/2″, 3950 guass ceramic magnet

was placed twenty-four hours a day on the sole of the infected foot.

Within one week, the improvement was so substantial that the foot

was not removed. An elderly, deteriorated diabetic man with diabetic

neuropathy had severe burning pain in his feet for which he had

found no relief. Each foot was placed on the negative poles of a 4

X 6 X 1/2″, 3950 gauss ceramic magnetic. In a few minutes, the pain

left. He remained pain free for several hours. When the pain

returned, it was again relieved with the negative magnetic field.

Surprisingly, after a few days of treatment, the pain did not


At seventy, a man with atherosclerotic heart disease had a

multiple by-pass operation. At seventy-two, his heart pain

returned. He was unsteady on his feet and would stumble, his speech

was thick, he would get lost in even familiar surroundings and he

was chronically depressed. At seventy-four, he started magnetic

therapy treatment by sleeping with magnets at the crown of his head

and a magnet over his heart during his waking hours. When seen a

week later, his symptoms had disappeared. At one month, he was

observed to have no pain in his heart, steady on his feet with no

shuffling or stumbling, speech was distinct, he was smiling,

socially assertive and there was no evidence of depression.


Of prime importance is the initial avoidance of foods, chemicals

and inhalants that evoke symptoms and/or disordered carbohydrate

metabolism. Minor reactive foods can be returned to the diet within

six weeks and major reactors, as noted, usually within three months.

Ninety-five percent of the foods to which a person has been

demonstrated to be reactive can be returned to the diet on a once-

Page 5





in-four-day basis rotation without the reoccurrence of symptoms

and/or hyperglycemic reactions. Interestingly enough, this also

includes free sugars. The sugars need to be separated into their

respective original sources for the purpose of rotation such as

corn, cane, beet, maple and honey, which needs to be separated

according to where it was gathered.

A person may react to a honey from their own locality but not to

a honey from a locality away from where they live. It is also

important that the honey not be heated. The digestive enzymes in

honey are observed to help prevent the maladaptive inflammatory

reaction. It is of interest to note that seldom does a maturity-

onset diabetic react to maple sugar.

It is of prime importance to keep the excess of biological

positive and the deficiency of negative magnetic energy in balance.

This is achieved by one-half hour exposure to negative magnetic

fields ahead of a meal, one hour before going to bed and exposure of

the crown of the head while asleep, and by relieving symptoms when

they occur.

The atherosclerosis that develops in diabetes can materially be

helped with negative magnetic energy. There is substantial clinical

evidence that atheromatous plaques are dissolved by prolonged (three

to six months) direct exposure to negative magnetic field energy.

Furthermore, the pain of local hypoxia due to atherosclerosis is

relieved by direct exposure of the painful area to a negative

magnetic field. The mental confusion, disorientation and depression

of cerebral atherosclerosis is remarkably reduced or even completely

relieved by sleeping at night with negative magnetic energy at the

top of the head.

Neuropathy pains in the feet can be remarkably relieved by

placing the feet on the negative pole of a 3950 gauss, 4 X 6 X 1/2″

ceramic magnet. Gangrene of the feet has also been successfully

reversed with this same magnet. Infections (fungal and bacterial)

are treated with twenty-four hour negative magnetic field exposure

until the infection has disappeared.

This is to avoid the semantic confusion when referring to north and

south poles.

Negative magnetic polarity energy:

This is identified either as the side of a flat-surface

magnet with poles on opposite sides or as the end of a bar

magnet that registers negative (-) on a magnetometer. This

is also the same energy as the true physical north magnetic

pole of the earth.

This is opposite to the north seeking pole of a compass

needle, which was originally wrongly named north pole, when,

in fact, the north seeking pole of a bar magnet (compass

needle) is south pole, since opposites attract.

Positive magnetic polarity energy:

This is identified either as the side of a flat-surface

magnet with poles on opposite sides or as the end of a bar

magnet that registers positive (+) on a magnetometer.

Page 7





This is also the same energy as the true physical south

magnetic pole of the earth. This is the same as the north

seeking pole of a compass needle. A positive compass needle

pointing north, which was misidentified as north pole by

navigators, is in fact a south pole seeking the north pole of

the earth.


This follows the recommendations and use of several authors,

especially those interested in the biological responses to

magnetism, electricity and ionization and provides the consistency

of parallel biological responses to the specific separate pole

and/or energy of positive and negative electricity, magnetism and


Negative parallels are the negative pole of a DC circuit, negative

pole of a magnet and negative ionization. Biological responses to a

negative magnetic field, negative electric pole and negative

ionization are parallel.

Positive parallels are the positive pole of a DC circuit, positive

pole of a magnet and positive ionization. Biological responses to a

positive magnetic field, positive electric pole and positive

ionization are parallel.
