Yin Yang energies must be balanced throughout the body for optimal health. Magnet Therapy can be used to bring the body back into balance when a yin or yang deficiency exists.
Though there is much controversy within the field of magnetic therapy as to which pole, the magnetic north pole or the magnetic south pole, to use for therapeutic benefits, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) recognizes the healing benefits of both magnetic poles.
The magnetic poles of a biomagnet (healing magnet) correspond with energies of Yin and Yang. Depending on the type of imbalance, a particular magnetic pole can be used to achieve balance, known as homeostasis.
The north pole of a biomagnet is cooling, sedating, dispersing, clearing, eliminative and detoxifying. It corresponds to the traditional Chinese medicine definition of Yin, or negative polarity.
The south pole of a biomagnet is heating, stimulating, accumulating, building, tonifying and strengthening. It corresponds to the Yang, or positive polarity.
If the type of deficiency is known and treated with the appropriate polarity, positive results can be experienced quicker. It is not always known which type of deficiency is present and often a deficiency of both energies can exist. For these reasons bipolar magnets can be very harmonizing and create full balance of both the body and the biofield, or biomagnetism.
North Indications – Yin Deficiency: A north or bio-north magnet can be used for acute pains (sharp or burning) caused by heat, inflammation, hyper-metabolic conditions, hypertensive conditions, insomnia, nervousness and infections.
Bio-north contraindications - Excess Yin: Do not use a north magnet for deficiency conditions, coldness, low metabolism and weakness.
South Indication - Yang Deficiency: A south or bio-south magnet can be used for pains caused by weakness, coldness, and deficiency (usually of a more chronic and achy nature); also for hypo metabolic conditions associated with low energy, weak digestion and weak immune system.
Bio-south contraindications - Excess Yang: Do not use a south magnet for acute inflammatory conditions, bacterial infections, cancers and tumors.
Bipolar Indications – Yin and Yang Deficiency: Some conditions can be from a lack of both positive and negative energies. Both poles should then be applied. This approach can also be used if the site of pain encompasses a large area or to achieve total body balance.
For those that prefer not to use the application of individual magnets, magnetic therapy jewelry can be worn instead. Magnetic stainless steel jewelry and magnetic titanium jewelry is available with bio-north magnets. Bipolar magnetic jewelry is also available. Magnetite jewelry is made with bipolar Magnetite beads, or you can create your own bipolar magnetic jewelry with neodymium magnets.
