2A minority of people see a special effectiveness already in the height of Nano (nT) – or even Piko (pT)
and refer to the branch of science of the so-called „stochasticresonance“. That these fields intensities differ themselves by 1 billion doesn’t seem todisturb anyone.
Also the frequency adjustments are chaotically in a mess. There are some details,that only extremely low frequencies („under 200 Hz“) have a therapeuticeffectiveness, on the other hand the science knows about “biological windows”, and,that they also have the same effect, if not stronger, in highly frequent areas. So themagnetic field manufactures show off with their amount of programmed singlefrequencies, which lay between 5 000 – 10 000 in advanced devices. And they hopeaccidentally to address the defined cell resonances. What appears problematically tothis extent is that there are no secure data available on the cell resonance.
Through the development of the statistic to the pulsating magnetic field therapy, ithas established itself, a standard that dissociates itself from the elitist mannerism ofthe alas so primitive origin of the static field. Due to cost saving reasons of these“modern” devices they only serve however the lower Micro –Tesla area, it concerns –strictly speaking- only a pure frequency generation. One uses therefore solely anoscillation repertoire and forgets that the static magnetic field powers (of about 1 mT)develops inherent therapeutic powers.The existing specialty formation intentionally wants to clean up the prejudices andmistakes. For this they took results out of medical databases (Medline, Embase) andanalyzed controlled relevant studies. ”Controlled in that respect means in thescientific sense “ double blind, randomized and where appropriate prospective”. Alsohelpful were the base studies to electromagnetic fields, because they provided withtheir negative headlines important references to the cause model.With the summary and estimation of the molecular and physiological effects, themagnetic field therapy can take the credit for itself to be the scientificallysubstantiated method.
II. basic Principals
It is necessary for the understanding of the magnetic field effect firstly to definealways reoccurring concepts and respectively components features. So a magneticfields causes field intensity, frequency and pulse form. Expressions like “biologicalwindows”, “resonance”, “Schumann- frequencies” or “stochastic resonance” and soon need a basic clarification.
1. field intensity / flux density
The field intensity describes a magnetic field quantitative after intensity of current anddirection and is measured in A/m (Ampere / meter).This doesn’t however describesufficiently the magnetic field power. In fact the material characteristics of thecurrent flow are to be multiplied. The outcome of the magnetic field intensity is calledflux density and has the unit Tesla (T).
