Biomagnetic Therapy

Biomagnetic therapy uses the power of magnets and magnetic fields to improve a person’s health and treat certain medical conditions. It is also sometimes referred to as magnetic therapy.

We can trace magnetic therapy back at least 2,000 years. Egyptian, Asian, and European healers used magnetic devices to pull impurities out of the body.

Interest in magnet therapy experienced a resurgence in the 20th century. In the mid-1900s, Japanese researchers began studying the effects of magnetic fields on biological tissues. This renewed interest contributed to the development of modern bio-magnetic therapy devices.

Today, biomagnetic therapy is used to balance the body’s own magnetic field. It uses low-intensity electromagnetic therapeutic objects to help patients feel less pain.


How Does Biomagnetic Therapy Work?


The human body naturally has a weak magnetic field that generates small-scale electricity. This is how our nerves and cells are able to communicate with each other to keep our bodies functioning as they should. Likewise, each molecule inside of your body is fueled by electromagnetic energy.

The idea behind biomagnetic therapy is that our natural magnetic fields are disrupted when we are sick. Therefore, they are unable to do the important work they need to perform to keep us healthy.

By applying a magnetic field to the body, we can restore our body’s natural biomagnetic field. Then, it can get back to functioning and feeling like usual.

Today’s biomagnetic therapy is completely non-invasive. It works through magnetized bracelets, mattresses, or other devices, such as the Rife Machine. These magnetic devices stimulate the body’s molecules and ions. As a result, they correct disruptions that might help cancer cells and tumor tissue grow.


Research on Biomagnetic Therapy for Cancer


 Low-frequency electromagnetic waves are recognized as a safe method of reducing cancer cell growth. Several studies have looked at how biomagnetic therapy can impact cancer patients. In one study, a group of mice was exposed to magnetic fields for 360 minutes a day. After four weeks, they had a significant reduction in the growth of tumors.

Another study exhibited promising results by showing that magnetic nanoparticles could burn off and kill cancer cells when they are delivered directly into a tumor. However, more work needs to be done before this type of treatment can be used outside of clinical studies.

In 2022, a team of researchers embarked on a landmark study to test a new magnetic therapy that would serve as an effective companion therapy to chemotherapy to enhance treatment outcomes for breast cancer. The team was able to demonstrate through laboratory and preclinical studies that a combination of pulsed magnetic field exposure and the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin was effective in reducing the size of breast cancer tumors.

Can Biomagnetic Therapy Treat Cancer?

Biomagnetic therapy is used alongside other treatment options to help cancer patients find some relief from symptoms and slow down cancerous cell growth.

In addition to slowing the growth of cancer, therapeutic magnets have been shown to increase blood flow wherever they are applied. When your blood flow increases, your body can send more nutrients and oxygen to the afflicted area. The result is a healthier immune system overall.

Is Biomagnetic Therapy Safe?


Magnetic therapy options are non-invasive. Therefore, there is no risk of using them for patients who are suffering from pain and other side effects of cancer and cancer treatments. 

More research is needed before we understand the extent to which we can use magnets to kill cancer cells directly. Until then, patients can safely use biomagnetic therapy to find some relief in managing symptoms and reducing the growth of their tumors.

Biomagnetic Therapy- Relevant Research and News

Effect of Magnetic Fields on Tumor Growth and Viability

Breast cancer is the most common nonskin cancer and is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. Most methods of intervention involve combinations of surgery, chemotherapy, and ionizing radiation. Both chemotherapy and ionizing radiation can be effective against many types of cancer, but they also harm normal tissues. The use of nonionizing, magnetic fields has shown early promise in a number of in vitro and animal studies. Our study tested the effect of varying durations of magnetic exposure on tumor growth and viability in mice injected with breast cancer cells. Cancer cells were labeled through stable expression of firefly luciferase for monitoring of tumor growth and progression by using an in vivo imaging system. We hypothesized that magnetic field exposure would influence tumor growth and progression. Our results showed that exposure of the mice to magnetic fields for 360 min daily for as long as 4 wk suppressed tumor growth. Our study is unique in that it uses an in vivo imaging system to monitor the growth and progression of tumors in real time in individual mice. Our findings support further exploration of the potential of magnetic fields in cancer therapeutics, either as adjunct or primary therapy.

Case Report: End-Stage Recurrent Glioblastoma Treated With a New Noninvasive Non-Contact Oncomagnetic Device

Alternating electric field therapy has been approved for glioblastoma (GBM). We have preclinical evidence for anticancer effects in GBM cell cultures and mouse xenografts with an oscillating magnetic field (OMF) generating device. Here we report OMF treatment of end-stage recurrent glioblastoma in a 53-year-old man who had undergone radical surgical excision and chemoradiotherapy, and experimental gene therapy for a left frontal tumor. He experienced tumor recurrence and progressive enlargement with leptomeningeal involvement. OMF for 5 weeks was well tolerated, with 31% reduction of contrast-enhanced tumor volume and reduction in abnormal T2-weighted Fluid-Attenuated Inversion Recovery volume. Tumor shrinkage appeared to correlate with treatment dose. These findings suggest a powerful new noninvasive therapy for glioblastoma.
