What is Biomagnetic Pair Therapy?
A therapeutic system for children and adults alike. It safely eliminates parasites, bacteria, fungus, viruses and other germs therefore effectively healing most diseases, dysfunctions, ailments and pain. This method is rooted in the fact that the majority of illnesses are caused by micro infections that are sub clinical or macro infections, which are manifest and evident in the body.
The system consists of identifying pH imbalances in the human body. This is done by scanning the body with passive magnets. The regions of the body that have been invaded by pathogenic elements are identified and magnets are then applied to these areas for 20 minutes. The magnetic energy reestablishes equilibrium (balanced pH). Pathogens (bacteria, parasites, fungus or viruses) cannot exist, reproduce or thrive in a balanced pH environment, thus pathogens are eliminated. When we eliminate pathogens, we eliminate illness and disease. This therapy has a high rate of success, is non-invasive, safe and painless. There are no side effects.
