>In any therapy involving pulsed magnetics you can ask yourself they do not pulse. Of  course you need ot pay attention to polarity.  Positive is useful as a stimulator but has undesirable effects especially in  long term use.  It signals the body to provide negative negative magnetic energy to the site, and can stimulate endorphin production as well as the growth of anaerobic bacteria, viruses, cancer cells etc. if applied directly.

The makers of pulsed machines need to play with pulse frequency,
etc., in order to have something they can patent and protect.
most likely the pulsing does not add much to the magnetic
A solid state magnet, on the other hand, can be left in place 24
hrs. a day and does not tie the patient down. So you might buy
your therapeutic equipment at an industrial magnet distributor
(like Bunting, which is the one I use), . A 1" by 1/4" disc is
only $10. (This is what I used to avoid two root canals).

In my opinion, Wm. Philpott, M.D. has the best explanations for
how magnets work.  He has various publications.  He is a
neuropsychiatrist by training, and has done work with diabetes
and brain allergies besides biomagnetics. He is a recipient of
the Linus Pauling award.  His fax # is 904-264-5934.
