Magnetic field effect on human organism

It is determined, that magnet "clockwise" rotation and its "north" part action on biological fabric have an expressed positive effect in comparison with "south" or "counterclockwise" one.

The mechanism of magnetic fields effect on an organism is complicated enough, but in brief it can be presented as the promption of electromotive forces in fabrics, and as a result - to formation of the induced ring currents making effect on pair - and- diamagnetic molecules. At a cellular level under action of magnetic field there is a rotary moment under the influence of which a molecules arranged along the basic axes of rotary symmetry. As a result we have: the change both of cell membranes and cell`s structures ( permeability restoration, normalization of diffusive and osmotic processes in a cell and, accordingly, its electrolyte structure); - the change of tissue electronic potential, increase of both metabolism level, oxidation-restorative processes and free radical oxidations.

  • acceleration of enzymatic reactions process and normalization of biological membranes transport properties.
  • marked change in a capillary race (change of permeability, a condition of endothelium, colloid-osmotic pressure, improvement of microcirculation (nonfunctioning capillaries open ).

As a result there are acceleration of reparation processes, increase of immunological reactivity (immunity cellular and humoral level ),the change of changes of bradykinin systems activity. Magnetic field makes marked normalizing effect on vegetative nervous system. It is very important that pulsed magnetic field has considerably more expressed effect, than constant or variable ones.

Pulsed magnetic field has trace character effect. After magnetic field single exposure, human organism response lasts for 1-6 days, while the procedure courses is followed by 30-45 days` response, so there is necessity to take interval between repeated treatment procedure courses for this period. The magnetic field freely goes through an organism tissues , clothes, plaster bandages, but rather quickly fades depending on distance and the form of inductor , that property allows to apply magnetic fields in traumatology. The magnetic field has no thermal effect, so it is less loading, is more easy withstood by patients. Some of the patients mark "thermal" effect in a place of magnetic field exposure which is connected to an intensification of blood circulation under action of a magnetic field.

The response of various human organs and systems to a magnetic field effect is not similar. Selectivity of body response reaction depends on electric and magnetic properties of tissues, their difference in micro-circulation, intensity of metabolism and the state of neurohumoral circulation . Among organism different systems, sensitivity of nervous system to the magnetic field exposure takes the first place, then goes endocrine system, cardiovascular system, blood, muscular, digestic apparatus, excretory, respiratory and bone systems.

Magnetic field effect on nervous system is characterized by physiologic and biologic processes positive changes. Stimulation of inhibition processes takes place resulting in the emergency of sedative effect, favorable action on sleep and emotional state. In the hypothalamus cells there is stimulation of substance produce ( releasing factors) which regulate the functions of endocrine glands resulting in restoration both of endocrine gland hormones normal work - adrenal, thyroid and pancreas gland and metabolism that favourably effects the organism general condition, the other process are stimulated as well.

Stimulation of hypothalamo-hypophysial system provokes chain reaction activating peripheral endocrine glands-targets under the influence of releasing factors , the synthesis of which is stimulated in hypothalamo- hypophysial system followed by numerous ramified metabolic reactions. When endocrine system is effected by an alternating magnetic field with the induction up to 30mTl and frequency of 50Hz, the the exposition time max.20 minutes there is the development of training reaction and inncreased activity of all branches of endocrine systems. Stimulation of thyroid gland function is noted being exposed by a magnetic field in contrast to a inhibitory effect of many other stimuli, this considered as a precondition for magnetic complex therapy in case of its hypofunction. Showing only a slight activation at the beginning of a magnetotherapy course sympatheticoadrenal systen begins to form inhibition of peripheral - adrenoreceptors by the 7th-9th day of treatment which is of great significance in producing antistress effect. So under the influence of magnetic field with low intensity we have evident positive effect : reduction of cerebral vessels tone, improvement of brain blood supply, activation of nitrogen and carbohydrate - phosphoric metabolism increasing brain stability to hypoxia. Under the influence of low frequency magnetic field on cervical sympathetic nodes and paretic extremities ( patint sustained cerebral stroke)there is improvement of a cerebral blood flow (the data of rheovasography) and normalization of increased arterial pressure proving the magnetic field reflex action. Under the influence on suboccipital area ( patients with a circulatory insufficiency invertebrobasilar system) there is evident improvement of a cerebral hemodynamics.

Pulsed magnetic field action on a collar zone results in improvement of hemodynamics and both systolic and diastolic pressure decrease up to normal state. Here we can say about possibility of cerebral hemodynamics disorder correction with different pathology conditions. Peripheral nervous system responds to the magnetic field effect by decreased sensitivity of peripheral receptors which results in analgesic effect and improvement of conductivity function which produces a favorable effect on functional recovery of traumatized peripheral nerve ending due to accelerated axon growth, myelinization and inhibition of connective tissue growth. Under influence of a pulsed magnetic field of the same induction and frequency with its various localizations (the head, area of heart, a forearm) there is emergence of the same type reaction from the part of cardiovascular system that gives the basis to assume the reflex nature of the field action on it. Pressure decrease in the system of deep and subcutaneous veins as well as in arteries is noted. Simultaneously, vascular tension increases, elastic properties and bioelectric resistance of vascular walls change. Hemodynamics changes, hypotensive effect in particular, is due to the development of bradycaria effect and thanks to the of contractile myocardial function. This property found its application in hypertension therapy and is applied as well for heart loading reduction. Magnetic field produces changes in microcirculatory race of numerous tissues. At the beginning of a magnetotherapy course there is a short-term (5-15 minutes) retardation of capillary blood flow which followed by microcirculation intensification. During and on termination a magnetotherapy course there are: acceleration of capillary blood flow, Pressure decrease in the system of deep and subcutaneous veins as well as in arteries is noted. Simultaneously, vascular tension increases, elastic properties and bioelectric resistance of vascular walls change. Hemodynamics changes, hypotensive effect in particular, is due to the development of bradycaria effect and thanks to the of contractile myocardial function. This property found its application in hypertension therapy and is applied as well for heart loading reduction. Magnetic field produces changes in microcirculatory race of numerous tissues. At the beginning of a magnetotherapy course there is a short-term (5-15 minutes) retardation of capillary blood flow which followed by microcirculation intensification. During and on magnetotherapy course termination there are: acceleration of capillary blood flow, improvement of contractile behavior of vascular walls and increase of vascular blood filling. The lumen of functioning components in the microcirculatory bed becomes larger, the conditions promoting the opening of preexisting capillaries, anastomoses and bypasses develop.

Under the effect of magnetic fields especially in the area of large vessels there is the emergence of hypocoagulation effect due to the activation of anticoagulative system, reduction of intravascular parietal thrombogenesis and decrease of blood viscosity through the effect produced by magnetic field of low intensity on enzymatic processes, electric and magnetic properties of blood corpuscles participating in hemocoagulation. Under the effect of magmetic fields and injected medicinal preparations there is increase of vascular and epithelial permeability resulting in edamas accelerated resolution. Thanks to this effect magnetotherapy began to be widely used incases of traumas, injuries and their aftereffects. Traveling pulsed magnetic field stimulates the increase of metabolic process in the area of bone regenerative tissue ( in case of bone fractures)and the esarlier development of fibro-and- osteoblasts in the regeneration zone, the process of bone substance formation is more intense even at the earlier stages. Pulsed magnetic fields action on human organism big areas ( basic emitter) produces a considerable effect on body metabolism. When exposed to a particular system it increases the protein and globulin content in blood serum, their concentration in tissue is increased due to a- and g- globulin fraction. This is accompanied by protein structure change. Short-term daily general effects of magnetic field decrease the content of pyruvic and lactic acids not only in the blood but also in liver and muscles. This is accompanied by the increase of glycogen content in liver. Magnetic field effect reduces the number of Nа –ions with simultaneous increase of К-ion concentration which indicates the change of cellular membrane permeability. Fe concentration reduction in brain, heart, blood, liver, muscles, spleen is noted with its increase in bone tissue. Such Fe redistribution is associated with the change of hemopoietic organs state. This is accompanied by Cu concentration increase in cardiac muscle, spleen and testes resulting in the activation of adaptation-compensatory processes in body. Cо- concentration decreases in all organs and its redistribution occurs between blood, individual organs and tissues. Biological activity of Mg becomes higher. This results in reduction of pathological processes in the liver, heart and muscles.

It has been noted that magnetic fields of low induction stimulate the processes of tissue respiration, changing the ratio of free and phosphorylation oxidation in the respiratory chain. Nuclein acid metabolism and protein synthesis are intensified producing the effect on plastic processes. Proliferation and regeneration effects are determined by activation of lipid peroxidation. Metabolism activation of carbohydrates and lipids is considered to be a characteristic feature of magnetic field effect on human body. This is proved by increased concentration of nonesterificated fatty acids and phospholipids in the blood and inner organs as well as by blood cholesterol reduction. Thus, a short-term effect of magnetic fields is characterized by multifold action on human organism resulting in the development of individual reversible favorable effects. The most evident and clinically significant are sedative, hypotensive, anti-inflammatory, antiedematic,analgesic and trophicoregenerative effects. Under certain conditions, e.g. when exposing to large vessels, magnetotherapy produces deaggregation and hypocoagulation effects, improves microand- regional circulation, makes favorable effects on immunoreactive and neurovegetative processes. Magnetic field effect does not generally generate endogenic heat, nor it causes temperature rise or skin irritation. It is well tolerated by weak and elderly patients suffering from concomitant cardiovascular diseases which allows the magnetotherapy devices to be used when other physical procedures are contraindicated.
