Magnetic Therapy in Eastern Europe: A Review of 30 Years of Research
Magnetic Therapy In Eastern Europe – A Summary Of 30 Years Of Research
By Jiri Jerabek, M.D., Ph.D. and William Pawluk, M.D., M.Sc.
This book contains an extensive amount of medical research information and detail on the scientific basis of magnetic therapy. It is most appropriate for professionals and those with serious interest in the subject of magnetic therapy. The research reported summarizes details of the magnetic systems used, intensities, signal type, and some research results for studies done for many conditions in pediatrics, surgery, orthopedics, gynecology, and so on. The summaries can provide guidance for anyone planning to use either static magnets or PEMFs for care. Knowledge of specific disease conditions and outcome measurements are needed. There is no current source with as much variety of research-based medical evidence.
The information presented is based on extensive research done over 30 years in Eastern Europe. Magnetic therapy has been practiced extensively in Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary and other countries. In the Czech Republic, where Dr. Jerabek is from, there is in fact a government body specifically for licensing and review of magnetic field devices.
This information will save clinicians interested in using this very safe treatment modality much time looking for research-based data on the clinical application of magnetic fields in humans. Physicians from other countries supplying this information to us are helping us by making their experience available to us. It may also serve to guide further Western research.
