In late 1774, Mesmer was introduced to a new form of treatment with magnets by the Reverend Father Maximillian Hell (1720–1792), a Jesuit priest and the Austrian Astronomer Royal. Several months earlier, in June 1774, Hell had lent a heart-shaped steel magnet (magnetized by repetitive stroking with a lodestone) to a baroness afflicted with intractable abdominal pain.
Four days later, the baroness was restored to health, and Hell ultimately concluded that the magnet had produced curative effects by act-ing on the nervous system. Hell suggested Mesmertry his magnets on Miss Österlin, who had suffered a relapse of hemiplegia in July 1774.
Taking Father Hell’s advice, Mesmer attached Hell’s magnets to Miss Österlin’s feet and another heart-shaped magnet to her chest with dramatic results.

Objective: This pilot study examined the laboratory responses of patients with laboratory-documented typhoid fever who were treated with Biomagnetic Pair Therapy (BPT; medical biomagnetism), a specific application of pairs of magnets for various ailments that are infectious and otherwise.
Results: Most of the participants (10 of 13) retested as negative, and all patients reported symptomatic clinical improvement.
Conclusions: As a significant majority of participants demonstrated clearing of their S. typhi after BPT, this technique should be studied further in larger trials for its efficacy in treating typhoid fever.Keywords: : typhoid fever, Salmonella typhi, Biomagnetic Pair Therapy, medical biomagnetismGo to:
