Perpetual Pill

51SbThe chemical element antimony, used cosmetically by Egyptians to darken their eyes, became indiscriminately used as a perpetual pill in the 16th and 17th centuries in Western Europe. Once swallowed, the pills passed through the intestine as a purgative. At this point, they were recovered from the chamber pot, washed and used again, indefinitely.

Though known only to treat one tropical disease and otherwise not worth the risks from taking it, antimony had acquired the status of wonder drug. The French bourgeois even treated the pills as heirlooms and literally passed them from one generation to the next.1

Surely these pills must have been expensive to justify such indiscriminate use. Imagine that ... high medical costs ... just like today in fact. These days, medical expenses remain the single biggest cause of bankruptcies.2    We can understand why the thought of a perpetual pill would be so attractive. But what if I told you that there really does exist a perpetual "pill"? And like antimony, it has been around for as long as the earth. But unlike antimony, it really works.

There really exists a perpetual "pill"

Fe3O4Aside from antimony, yet another perpetual "pill" exists. In ancient times, this pill, an oxide of iron found in nature as magnetite—a lodestone—benefitted Cleopatra who wore it on her forehead as she slept.3   It can potentially cure cancer, reverse heart disease and assist in numerous other maladies. In fact, this has been clinically proven as in the following exciting cases.

An elderly woman with 80% blockage of a major coronary artery used magnetic therapy for two months prior to her scheduled angioplasty. But by the time of the surgery, the blockage was so reduced that the surgery was cancelled.4   In a second case, a man had prostate cancer that had metastasized into bone cancer—magnetic therapy reversed the condition in three months.5   Far more cases abound. Not only, however, is the efficacy amazing but also the cost differential.

A drop in the bucket

The cost of using magnetic therapy to resolve the arterial damage in the previous example pales next to that of mainstream medicine. Three thousand dollars covered the cost of the required magnetic bed (it's less than a quarter of that if you can build it yourself which I did for my dog on a smaller scale). Under typical care, patients with established heart disease can expect to pay about $19,000 per year ... and that's established so the number doesn't factor in the cost of an operation—upwards of $70,000.6   But wait, it gets better!

The cost to cure the cancer? $57! That's right. To cure his prostate cancer, the patient required a wearable magnetic wrap for about $50 and also a second magnet to periodically place on his lower abdomen which cost $7. Normally, U.S. cancer patients are expected to pay between $10,000 and $30,000 per month.7  

The medicine chest of the future

Considering that:

  1. about fifty percent of all deaths are caused by heart disease, cancer, and chronic lower respiratory disease8
  2. medical expenses remain the single biggest cause of bankruptcies
  3. prevention and proactive health care help to realize and ward off major illnesses
you have every reason to gather a well-stocked medicine chest of "perpetual pills" ... for under $150.

Of course, you will need proper instruction on how to work with magnets. Assuming you don't have anyone to teach you how to work with them, read Dr. Philpott's book, Magnet Therapy, The Self-Help Guide to Magnets—Clinically Proven to Relieve 35 Health Problems. Of all the books I've read so far, this one seems to be the best for getting started. Plus, public libraries stock it.

For serious issues you would still be under your doctor's care, of course. And remember, despite the high chances of eliminating an ailment, magnetic therapy is not a cure-all.

With magnetic therapy the treatment times and effort required will vary. But magnets, handled carefully, do not degrade. And the best part ... being reusable, they can be appropriately honored as heirlooms ... even if it is only on your fridge.
