This manuscript introduces a hypothesis linking the intrinsic pulsating nature of the biomagnetic fields reach found in the human hair follicle as factor in the etiology of migraine headaches. In the last two decades, researchers have emphasized the efficiency of external pulsed electromagnetic fields in the treatment of migraine headaches.
Clinical trials have also demonstrated that external pulsed electromagnetic fields may prevent or decrease the migraine attacks. A hypothesis is presented linking the inherent hair follicle pulsed bioelectomagnetism as a factor in the etiology of migraines. Does the internal pulsed biomagnetic field reach of the hair follicles factor in the genesis of migraine headaches? Supporting the hypothesis are published papers confirming the inherent biomagnetism of the human hair follicle. The introduction of a novel optical microscopy technique using a special Prussian Blue Stain (PBS) mixed with fine iron particles has produced numerous papers confirming the inherent biomagnetism of the human hair. This manuscript expands on those findings by introducing documentation of the hair follicle pulsating biomagnetic field reach. This is demonstrated by using diamagnetic as well as paramagnetic preparations mixed with iron particles. Still microphotographs and video-recordings are presented.
