Lyme Magnetic Protocol & Biomagnetic Therapy
Lyme Magnetic Protocol (LMP) is a unique and powerful treatment modality developed by Joan Randall of Integrative Wellness. As a holistic magnetic and energetic therapy, LMP applies pairs of magnets to specific points of the body to target the pathogens, toxins and other imbalances that can be the root cause behind the symptoms of Lyme, tick and mosquito-born disease and other chronic illnesses. You do not necessarily need a Lyme diagnosis to benefit from Lyme Magnetic Protocol however, as Lyme disease shares many symptoms and co-infections with other auto-immune diseases.
Lyme disease and other immune dysfunction disorders can be complicated as they often involve multiple co-infections along with Lyme borrelia. It's through this protocol that pathogens are revealed and brought under control, alleviating symptoms and allowing the body to return to health.
This magnetic therapy was built upon the discoveries and concepts of Dr. Goiz’s Biomagnetic Pair Therapy (see below). After studying with Dr. Goiz and working in her own practice, Joan discovered hundreds of additional points that require magnetic treatment and developed this very effective, methodical and iterative protocol to regaining health and balance.
What is Biomagnetic Pair Therapy
Biomagnetic Pair Therapy (also known as Medical Biomagnetism or Biomagnetic Therapy) is a natural, safe and medically sound alternative healing modality. It was developed by Mexican medical doctor Isaac Goiz Duran in 1988 and is practiced in the US, Mexico, Spain and many parts of Europe.
Medical Biomagnetism treats diseases and symptoms by targeting their root causes. Many complex diseases can be associated with mild changes in pH, coupled with the presence of pathogens drawn to those areas, as well as toxins and other harmful factors. Dr. Goiz discovered that when a specific point's pH is unbalanced, it has an energetically connected point that it resonates with, what he termed a 'Biomagnetic Pair'. It is within these pairs that pathogens and inflammation can thrive. Applying pairs of magnets (a positive and a negative) to these two points helps neutralize the pH, correcting the environment and making it inhospitable to the pathogens that once flourished there.
Since it’s discovery, Dr. Goiz and others have mapped hundreds of these pairs that have the potential to be unbalanced, and it’s the practitioner’s job to scan the body using applied kinesiology to locate and balance these pairs. To date, there are well over 600 Biomagnetic Pairs that address most diseases, glandular dysfunctions, emotional issues, syndromes and illnesses.
How do the magnets work?
Magnets have been used in healing therapies for hundreds of years. With the Lyme Magnetic Protocol, a pair of medium intensity magnets of opposing polarity are applied to two energetically connected points on the body for about 20-25 minutes. The theory is that with magnets on these two points, pH balance is restored, viruses begin to die-off and bacteria lose their pathogenic capacity. As the body processes the changes impacted by the magnets, cells become healthier and the body starts healing itself, oftentimes surprisingly quickly.
What is a treatment session like?
It's quite relaxing! You'll lay fully clothed on a comfortable massage table while I go about determining which magnet pairs would benefit you most. This is done through a type of energy testing. As I place magnets that help me determine the most beneficial course of treatment, your body responds with biofeedback via subtle changes in leg length. The results of the energy testing lay out the priority for treatment in each session, with subsequent sessions built upon the progress from the previous one.
What symptoms and conditions do you treat?
Lyme disease is often called the "Great Imitator". It's not uncommon to find that clients with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia or ME/CFS, for example, are carrying similar pathogenic burdens as those with a Lyme diagnosis. The Protocol contains hundreds of magnet pairs that address many symptomatic concerns. ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, Epstein-Barr, Lupus, nerve pain, RA, acne, tinnitis, inflammation, insomnia, muscle pain, cramps and spasms, joint pain, vertigo, balance issues, brain fog, ADHD, hair loss, depression, anxiety, hormone imbalances, poor circulation, neuropathy, headaches, migraines, psoriasis, and much more all can be impacted by this biomagnetic therapy.
What pathogens can you target?
There are hundreds of magnet pairs that address an wide range of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. For example Borrelia Burgdorferi, Epstein Barr Virus, SFTS, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Heartland Virus, herpetic viruses, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma, Mycoplasma, Strep, West Nile, Bartonella, H Pylori, Babesia, Candida, Ricksettsia, Toxoplasmosis, and Giardia all can be rooted out.
What about side-effects?
Despite how aggressively it can treat pathogens, the protocol is generally quite gentle. You may experience a mild 'Herx' reaction within a few days after your treatment. Often herxing can feel like a flare-up of a familiar symptom; fatigue, a mild headache, maybe an achy joint. You will be offered guidance for ways you can support our magnet work in the days following your treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
It depends on how complex your case is, what pathogens are involved and how strong your immune system is. A recent infection may only need 1-3 sessions. Some people need to be seen for a several months, others could be in treatment for a year or more. After your initial assessment, I should be able to give you a rough estimate. Sessions are generally spaced out anywhere from 2 to 5 weeks apart. Your body is the guide!
Is the Magnetic Protocol compatible with other therapies?
Absolutely. The Protocol is an excellent companion to other supportive therapies. Herbal, homeopathic and medicinal flower essences are especially symbiotic. If you're on antibiotics or other medications, you can certainly participate in the Magnetic Protocol. You should continue to see your doctors and I am happy to work with your team. You may find that medications can be adjusted or eliminated as we move through the protocol.
The Lyme Magnetic Protocol has been designed as an adjunct to existing Lyme treatments. It is not a substitute for appropriate medical evaluation, treatment or advice.
