Today's use of Magnetic Therapy
Magnetic therapy is the general term used as an alternative treatment with medical magnets or pulsed magnetic therapy using a magnetic pulser also called a magnetic therapy device.
The Germans, who have renowned scientists and inventors (see German inventions) introduced a genius invention namely called the: Pulsed Magnetic Therapy. The use of Pulsed Magnetic Therapy was already established in Germany after the 2nd World War and is a successful therapy since. Pulsed magnetic therapy is used in hospitals, clinics, by homeopaths and naturopaths.
The German physicist Dr.Wolfgang Ludwig became prominent for his research and experiments with
. His aim was to measure what kind of natural signals actually exist in a healthy environment. These findings were implemented in the Bio Medici Magnetic Pulser using the life essential Schumann waves essential for humans and animals. Please read the article about

Cleopatra the queen of ancient Egypt used magnetic therapy by sleeping with magnetic stones on her forehead in an attempt to preserve her youthful appearance and the Greek philosopher Aristotle talked about magnets as healing therapy.
Franz Anton Mesmer (May 23. 1734 - March 5. 1815) was a German physician who proposed that a magnetic force is flowing throughout the universe as well as the human body. He applied magnetic therapy using magnets, travelling around Europe as a healer. Later on, Mesmer opened a salon in Paris. At this time he applied "magnetic therapy" differently. Patients were placed in large water filled vats containing iron filings and rods. They had to pour magnetic water over their body parts affected by illness. In January 1768, Mesmer married Anna Maria von Posch, a wealthy widow, and established himself as a physician in Austria, Vienna treating the aristocrats with magnetic therapy.
Magnetic therapy (with magnets) was used in 1493 by the Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus in an effort to cure everything from headache to inflammation.
