Magnetizer and Frequently Asked Questions

 The hands of the magnetizer send out magnetism in the form of small hearts with a colorful galaxy in the background.

The nose is runny

If, after an alcoholic meal, you have gout in your nose, it is probably because your nasal mucosa is overactive to sulphites (allergy or nasal polyps - benign tumors). Before the consultation with the magnetizer, be sure to wash the nose regularly. The consultation with an ENT may help to know if you have polyps or allergies. Instead of magnetism, you can use topical corticosteroid spray and oral antihistamine therapy which will improve the situation. If the polyps don't go away or shrink, the surgery is still there.

Prolonged sniffling all day long to remove excess mucus (usually passes subconsciously towards the back of the throat) can cause inflammation of the back throat with coughing, fluctuations in blood pressure. voice and throat clearing. It is advisable to carry out a complete assessment at an ENT to identify the reason for these sniffles: infectious focus in the sinuses, presence of polyps, allergy.

Often, gastroesophageal reflux is the cause of the problem (the nasal passages are irritated by acid reflux). In this case, a healthy food hygiene (elimination of alcohol, spices and less rich food) and an adapted treatment by magnetist, supplemented by the intake of proton pump inhibitors, alginates or antacids, will then ease the pain.

The fact that a child suffers from 8 to 10 colds per year may seem usual and therefore normal. This is not the case, because, even if the majority of them recover spontaneously in 8 to 10 days (viral origin = ineffective antibiotics), it shows that there is a small problem somewhere. Do not forget to teach the child to blow his nose correctly from 2 years old and for the little ones. It is necessary to use a baby nose and / or carry out a nasal wash with doses of physiological serum. If the fever rises or if other signs appear (ear pain, cough ...), it is necessary to consult. In adults, there is hardly anything like a nasal wash (seawater solution) and inhalations.

Symptoms of a clear and profuse runny nose with itching inside as well as itchy eyes with sneezing are indicative of an allergy. An allergological assessment will find the cause. Management outside the magnetizer can be based on the elimination of the allergen when possible (difficult in the case of the spouse!), With the implementation of symptomatic treatment based on antihistamines and local corticosteroids or even to carry out specific immunotherapy which seeks to desensitize the body by subjecting it to increasing doses of the offending allergen (for players and patients).

The wet nose upon waking up is due to an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system. It is this system that takes care of regulating automatic bodily processes (heartbeat, blood pressure, breathing, temperature maintenance). The autonomic nervous system is broken down into two systems: the sympathetic and the parasympathetic. At night, the second has power and causes nasal congestion. In the morning, the first (friendly) takes control and releases the nose. For some people, this power shift occurs erratically and the mucus is sticking out the tip of its nose! After about fifteen minutes, everything is back to normal naturally. In case of embarrassment or if it persists, a consultation with the magnetizer is perhaps not ridiculous!

Vasoconstrictors come in two forms: in capsules or in tablets without a prescription, with pseudoephedrine as the main active ingredient. On prescription, we find the sprays known as Pernazene, Aturgyl and Eturgylone. They can all lead to heart and neurological problems. Here are the contraindications: heart disease, hypertension ... Do not exceed five days of treatment. There may be addiction following nasal use. The disorder "vasomotor rhinitis" is manifested by an influx of blood and heavy discharge.

Les vasoconstricteurs se présentent sous deux formes : en gélules ou en comprimés sans ordonnance, avec pour principe actif phare la pseudoéphédrine. Sur prescription, on trouve les sprays connus sous le nom de Pernazène, Aturgyl et de Eturgylone. Ils peuvent tous entraîner des problèmes cardiaques et neurologiques. Voici les contre-indications : maladies cardiaques, hypertension... Ne pas dépasser cinq jours de traitement. Il peut y avoir addiction à la suite d'une utilisation par voie nasale. Le trouble "rhinite vasomotrice" se manifeste par un afflux de sang et des écoulements importants.

The flow only in winter is the simple reflex of the mucous membrane when confronted with cold and often drier air. The nose increases its humidification work. It stimulates the mucous membrane to produce abundant fluid and the hair cells work slowly, the mucus is no longer evacuated, but stagnates and comes out through the nostrils. Finally, the warm air in our lungs cools down suddenly when it is exhaled and condenses.


A foreign body trapped in the nasal cavity in a young child can give a purulent discharge from one side only.

Heavy bleeding with secretions may signal a tumor in the nasal passages.

Clear fluid that comes out of a single nostril and only when the head is in certain positions can cause concern that it is not mucus, but cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord. In this case, there is an abnormal communication between the nasal cavity and the brain with a risk of meningitis. Magnetizer Carbone - January 2020


Zoonoses: declining in France, but new risks are appearing.

About 900 infectious agents : parasites, bacteria, viruses pathogenic for humans are zoonotic agents, transmitted between humans and animals directly or by vector (mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, etc.). Transmission can be cutaneous-mucous, digestive, respiratory or multiple. For developed countries, despite their diversity and number, these zoonoses have a low medical impact, representing only 3% of deaths before age 65. The transmission of tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterium), 5,000 cases per year, is almost exclusively human-to-human in France with only 10 cases in five years due to M. Bovis (zoonosis). Unfortunately, in Île-de-France, the most affected French region, an increase of 9% in the number of cases reported between 2015 and 2017. 20 cases per year reported for brucellosis (bacterial fever) transmitted through food or livestock. Q fever (Coxiella) caused by cattle, goats and sheep which gives summer flu syndrome. Rabies, 100% fatal viral encephalitis if post-exposure vaccination is not given before symptoms appear. On average, there is one case of animal rabies detected per year in mainland France. In Guyana, the problem is different with bat rabies, involving local vampire bats. In many countries, contact with animals should be avoided. A child, who had been infected by a puppy on vacation in Sri Lanka died in Lyon in 2017, this is the latest case. Pasteurellosis is easily transmitted by a scratch or bite. 5 to 6 hours later a very strong local inflammation occurs. The bacteria are present in 80% of cats and 40% of dogs. There are zoonoses related to leisure or activities: psittacosis caused by birds, tularemia caused by hares in hunters, leptospirosis in sewer workers. Borreliosis due to ticks, see link - latest info: Lyme disease more formidable zoonoses are emerging: - Ebola hemorrhagic fever in Africa, a virus transmitted between humans through contact with patients and body fluids, epidemics are proliferating in areas of poverty or insecurity due to the lack of personal protective clothing (gloves and appropriate clothing), not to mention the lack of hospitals to isolate the sick. - The Zika virus is not installed in mainland France. - Chikungunya (present in northern Italy) and dengue are not yet established in a sustainable way even if there have been indigenous cases, yet the tiger mosquito vector is present. The advantage of these viruses is that they mutate less than the flu, so a previously infected person is well immune. In addition, they are subject to very strong adaptation constraints between their vector and humans. - SARS (SARS-CoV virus, a previously unknown coronavirus) broke out worldwide in 2003, causing 8,000 cases, but above all killing 1 in 10 people (overall lethality ranging from 15% to more than 50%). The epidemic has been contained. - The Middle East Seas coronavirus has sought to penetrate the human species for seven years. Vector, the bat, but approaches humans by the dromedary, human-to-human transmission not yet permanent.

How can we explain the emergence of Zoonoses?

The decrease in diversity in livestock breeds weakens the animals and the change in land use (deforestation), are two factors that can play a role in these emergences. The starting point of a zoonosis is wildlife, but the infectious agent must be able to adapt to humans, as was the case for HIV, which is now fully humanized, or even like the virus. classic influenza H3N2, now purely human. Luckily, the H5N1 virus has to penetrate very deep, into the alveoli of the lungs, to find its receptors, requiring a very large amount of virus in the air. The receptors for the human influenza virus are higher, the temperature is too low for the virus to develop. This is the reason why, during the bird flu (H5N1) epizootics in the South West, there were no human cases. On our plates : - Salmonella infections are the most frequent food zoonoses, bacteria in the digestive tract of cattle and poultry that can contaminate meat, eggs, milk, etc. they develop on undercooked food. Salmonellosis, TIAC (collective food poisoning) or isolated, manifests itself with varying severity as gastroenteritis. TIACs are notifiable, but the number of isolated cases is unknown, in France for 2017, 1,310 were declared, affecting 13,000 people, among them 40% occurred in commercial catering, 30% in collective catering and 27% during family meals. - Escherichia coli bacteria linked to the consumption of meat, especially minced meat. They produce shigatoxin which causes 167 hemolytic and uremic syndromes in children with severe renal failure. - Hepatitis E, often harmless, tends to increase in Europe, it is in rare cases responsible for serious hepatitis or neurological damage and dangerous for pregnant women. Transmission is from wild boar to pig farms. It is mainly linked to the consumption of raw pork liver: figatelli, pork liver sausages. Cooking inactivates its virus. - Listeriosis, France declared 371 cases in 2017, is serious in pregnant women, immunocompromised patients and the elderly with a lethality of 20 to 30%. Transmission occurs through ingestion of contaminated raw or undercooked food: smoked fish, cold meats, shellfish, raw milk cheeses, raw fruits and vegetables...
