The balance potential for easily irritated tissues
depends on the difference in potassium concentration
between intra cellular and extra cellular fluid.
This potential is lower than the potassium balance
potential because of a minor sodium leak. The sodium
ions will diffuse out of the cell again. Because of
this, the intracellular potassium concentration is
The difference in potential influences the
permeability. Some organs, such as brain and heart, generate strong magnetic fields (brain =
3 × 108 Gauss; heart = 105
Gauss). These values start changing in case of
illnesses of the organs, for instance heart attack.
This has led to the making of magneto-cardiograms
and magneto-encephalograms. They give more
information about the condition of the heart and
brain than ECG and EEG.
The fluctuation of magnetic fields of
an organ is under the
influence of external factors, such as the magnetic
fields of the earth, sun, moon, etc.
Scientists have proved a relation between heart
attacks and depressions on one hand and changes of magnetic field of the earth on the other hand.
With the aid of magnets, with a static field of
constant strength, the external field changes can be
suppressed. They make it possible to come to
balanced potentials within organs. These magnets
have a stabilizing influence.
The most recent
developments in biomedicine science define health as
a balance between the magnetic fields of different
