I have been going over hundreds of pages in the iodine supplement forum - so I may be bringing up subjects that are years old.
I am intrigued by the thought of using magnets on iodine to create an electrostatic (is that the proper term) field. I don't have strength to be taking equipment apart, so was looking on ebay for magnets & learned way more than I ever thought there was to know about magnets.
Magnets can be charged a couple of ways either through their thickness or through their length. Some either stack up or side by side. Placing magnets on the bottle (charged thru their thickness) would create a magnetic field into the bottle. But placing magnets on the bottle (charged thru their length) shouldn't create a magnetic field into the bottle, but could possibly create a stirring action (but no real benefit?). I would think for the iodine you'd want a magnetic field going into the solution (to magnetize the particles I'm assuming?)
You said you made home made Alex Chiu rings with refrigerator magnets & other magnets, which have magnetic fields through there thickness. *IF* those are the fields used, I can't see them having a huge benefit (from the cursory overview I got of his theory - the pinky being the littlest cog in the gear system). BUT *IF* those fields are the side by side, with the opposite fields on either side of the pinky, it would almost be like a continuous pushing action of the blood flow - like 2 extra mini hearts (2x blood flow pushing into pinky & 2x blood flow pushing out of pinky) and that would make sense to my feeble brain (and coincide more with his theory) BUT you definitely didn't use that type of force in your hand (forgive the pun) made versions. I would think that type of magnetic field would capture blood (is iron in red blood cells attracted to the magnets??) & dam it up rather that push it along.
So I ordered 60 magnets claiming to have 6# pulling strength (for $12) off ebay. I didn't want to invest a lot & figured these would be useful anyways & had thought they could also be used for my own home made Alex Chiu rings but now I've rethought doing that with this batch (since they pushed downwards vs sideways)
I'm pondering ordering filings, placing them in a small glass bottle with water to actually see the magnetic field effect. They also had (motor) magnets which could encircle a very thin bottle/vial with 8 sections with N/S/N/S/N/S/N/S which I thought might keep the solution stirred up so it doesn't settle on the bottom. (link below)
Can you post a pic of your iodine with magnets? Is it just 2 or 4 - wouldn't 4 be better than just 2, is there one on the bottom? Have you considered selling magnet set ups?
Thank you for all your help, you have been so generous.
