A physical mechanism in the treatment of neurologic disorders with externally applied pico Tesla magnetic fields

Panminerva Med. 1995 Jun;37(2):98-104.


The clinical studies describing the treatment of some neurological disorders with an externally applied pico Tesla (10R Tesla, or 10(-8) gauss) magnetic field are considered from a physical view point. An equation relating the intrinsic or "rest" energy of a charged particle of mass with its energy of interaction in an externally applied magnetic field B is presented. The equation is proposed to represent an initial basic physical interaction as a part of a more complex biological mechanism to explain the therapeutic effects of externally applied magnetic fields in these and other neurologic disorders.
