ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to show the possibilities of treating diseases of the muscle-skeletal system and connective tissue through the application of a permanent Magnetic Deep Unipolar Oriented Field (MADU) on reflexogenic zones (RZ) and smaller areas or reflexogenic (acupuncture) points (RP). The MADU strip is a new non-invasive solution, patented by MD. PhD. Dusanka Mandic to the World International Property Organization (WIPO) No. PCT/YU 98/00018, WO 99/60581 and researched as a Novelty (N), Inventive Step (IS) and Industrial Applicability (IA).
Method: A consultative of doctors has treated outpatients with degenerative diseases of the hip and knee joint. Permanent magnets were applied with a power 10 to 15 times weaker than the tested and approved levels prescribed by the World Health Organization (WHO). The power of the magnetic fields was measured by a magnetometer [Gaussmeter RFL, Zurich, Switzerland (precision: 10 Gauss to 10 kiloGauss)], while the reactive distance and the depth of their recommended influence was measured by a proton magnetometer [Portable Proton Magnetometer Model G-856A, EG&G, Geometrics, USA (precision: 50 nanoTesla)]. One or more magnets, in the form of a strip, were placed on the surface of the body (RZ) and focused like a magnetophore (RP), with the north face turned towards the skin [North (N) pole or Negative pole (-)]. The strips were adhered by means of plaster, bandage or pieces of cloth. The magnetic strips and magnetophore retained contact with the body for a period ranging from 24 hours to one year according to the patients’ needs, determined on the basis of their clinical data. The therapy’s effectiveness was evaluated according to the score which was achieved through the diagnostic test questionnaire written by Prof. dr. sc med. Ivan Butkovic.
Results: Improvement of condition according to radiological findings of regeneration was found in 67% of the controlled patients. During the 12 months of follow-up examinations, the condition in 20% of patients remained the same and in 13% of patients the disease progressed. The duration of treatment ranged from five months to two and a half years, with an average duration of 1.4 years.
Conclusion: When applied for extended periods of time in the form of magnetic strips and magnetophores, MADU makes a possible regenerative processes of the bone cartilage and soft tissues, as a result of their influence on vascular, metabolic and enzymic processes. Their regenerative processes can be so successful that, besides qualitative renewal of the structure of the bone tissue, it can lead to the formation of new joint space, which creates a better and more efficacious function of the joint, with a better quality of life.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to show the possibilities of treating areas of insufficient arterial vascularisation through the application of a Magnetic Deep Unipolar Oriented Field (MADU). This includes the effects of MADU on reflexogenic areas (zones) and local acupunctural points. The MADU strip is patented by MD. PhD. Dusanka Mandic to the World International Property Organization (WIPO) No. PCT/YU 98/00018, WO 99/60581 and researched as a Novelty (N), Inventive Step (IS) and Industrial Applicability (IA).
Method: Permanent magnets were applied with a power 10 to 15 times weaker than the tested and approved levels prescribed by the World Health Organization (WHO). The power of the magnetic fields was measured by a magnetometer [Gaussmeter RFL, Zurich, Switzerland (precision: 10 Gauss to 10 kiloGauss)], while the reactive distance and the depth of their recommended influence was measured by a proton magnetometer [Portable Proton Magnetometer Model G-856A, EG&G, Geometrics, USA (precision: 50 nanoTesla)]. One or more magnets, in the form of a strip, were placed on the surface of the body (RZ) and focused like a magnetophore (RP), with the north face turned towards the skin [North (N) pole or Negative pole (-)]. The strips were adhered by means of plaster, bandage or pieces of cloth. The magnetic strips and magnetophore retained contact with the body for a period ranging from 21 days to two years according to the patients’ needs, determined on the basis of their clinical data.
Results: The MADU strip, with its deep unipolar oriented field, was used as a noninvasive therapy to treat 72 patients in areas of insufficient arterial vascularisation. The average duration of treatment was approximately 22 months. The clinical status of the patients was analysed. Clinical findings after treatment indicate an improvement in up to 62.5% of the patients. About 30% of patients, whose diagnosed gangrene indicated that the amputation of extremities or one or more fingers was necessary, did not have to undertake such operations during the control period of one year and beyond.
The following major pathiophysiological mechanisms were confirmed: K/Na pumps through cell membranes; conformational changes take place in H2O molecules; dipoles (in almost all plasma proteins) move to aligned positions; ions move to aligned positions (kations make contact with blood vessel walls and anions float in the lumens (tubes) of blood vessels); blood flow increases; as pH tissues are neutralised, a domination of alkalisation activates metalo-enzymes; the production of proinflammatory cytokines, interleukin 1 and TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) is inhibited; and the production of interleukin 2 from T-Lymphocites is increased.
Conclusion: The success of the therapy is clarified by the pathiophysiological mechanisms recorded. The MADU strips were applied to reflexogenic zones and acupuncture points. Optimum results are obtained in patients who are treated simultaneously by both scientific and traditional methods, rather than being treated by one method or another separately.
