RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

In light of Project Wikify (:p) Is there any "See alsos" people can think of? Obviously there's plenty of alt medicine but any very similar? I'm thinking crystal healing etc. ArmondikoVpathetic 08:23, 17 February 2009 (EST)

AC field therapy[edit]

Other real medical application is therapy with time variable magnetic field, witch is used to adjuvant therapy of some chornic musculosceletal disorders. Supposed but never well-established effect of this therapy can be explain by eddy current witch is induced in tissue and warms tissue. Problematic is this that magnetic flux and time-derivation of magnetic flux in tissue is usually too small. Despite of this is this form of magnetotherapy widely used in most countries.

Don't worry about the English, that can be corrected. I'm just going to move this here while I read up on AC Field Therapy. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 17:12, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

  • http://www.earthpulse.net/ - this is a motherload. I'm pretty sure every single thing that Ben Goldacre has ever mention is present here. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 17:24, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Just added a bit about diathermy. Microwaves, besides being electromagnetic waves, are sometimes generated by magnetrons which include chunky permanent magnets. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 18:50, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
