There are many people who will recognize this quote from Jean-Claude Collard that Magnetism is the flour that binds the cake together," but how many of us fully grasp what it really means? "

Let us turn to a few analogies:
-It is comparable to trying to re-inflate a punctured tire without first removing the nail that caused the puncture. The air might stay there for a while, but you would need to re-inflate the tire constantly until it had been properly repaired.
It could also be likened to the ceiling of an apartment that has been flooded and that you repaint without even asking your kind neighbor to turn off the tap that is causing the bathtub to overflow.

I could give still further examples, but continuing down this path would not achieve anything, given how clear the evidence is.
You will therefore have understood that magnetism is not a panacea, but a method of achieving cures that, if used in isolation, can certainly provide temporary relief, but is it really accurate to talk about cure?

How can anyone talk about cure when the underlying cause of the sickness has not been treated?
That is where the difference between "HEALER" and "MAGNETIZER" becomes clear. We will make further analogies to clarify the position for beginners

In effect, it could be dangerous to treat a patient using magnetism in isolation without treating the underlying cause. This would be similar to switching off a home security alarm without removing the robbers.
If we ignore these requirements, we can't call ourselves healers!
In order to have the right to call himself a healer, a therapist must take into account a wide range of different areas of expertise.
Nutrition: does it suit the individual's profile, having regard to his or her energy needs, personal background and body shape? Is there a need to apply a special diet? Does the chosen diet fill the gaps in the person's needs? What is the nature of that person's illnesses, and what caused them?
Physique: Are they muscular, slim, thin, fat, obese, tall or short, male or female? Is the person active or sedentary? Are his or her physical and sexual needs being met? Are there any injuries or any physical abnormalities?
Mental: Is the individual of average intelligence
Energy: It is worthwhile to compare the elements described above with the energy that the healer feels when consulting with the patient to carry out a deeper analysis. The healer does this in order to optimize the treatment, which will involve putting the patient back on track for each respective element.
The environment: does the patient live in an urban or rural landscape, an industrial area or close to electrical transformers, cellphone towers or power plants? Are there underground springs, mine workings or a graveyard?

The healer, after completing an analysis of the situation, will proceed along the following lines:
-reducing stress on the body caused by excess food and providing dietary advice
-rearranging and cleaning up aspects of the patient's life that have been spoiled, through manual treatment, supplements, herbal medicine or naturopathy
-restoring balance in areas that are missing or overabundant in the patient's life, based on dietary supplements, herbal medicine and aromatherapy
-restoring an energy balance using magnetizing techniques
-reorganizing the patient's thoughts, lifestyle, motivation and domestic management through consultation.
At present, the concept of magnetism as an ingredient (flour) in the healing process is clearly demonstrated, and the distinction between the terms of "healer" and "magnetizer" should be just as evident.

To conclude, we hammer in the nail by explaining that, although a healer is necessarily a magnetizer (as a conductor must also be a musician), the same does not go for the magnetizer (as a musician may simply be a violinist).
We are not seeking to impute any motives to anyone here. Our only aim is to give some substance to a "cookie cutter" term, which goes beyond a simple label as it allows us to distinguish a quite separate role: that of the "HEALER."

Being a healer is much more than a job it is a vocation with roots that go deep into the culture, landscape and collective knowledge. It guarantees traditional knowledge and traditional activities, a way of life and a way of behaving that leads to respect for people, for love and for life itself. Above all it is a gift of oneself. St Thérèse of Lisieux said "To love is to give everything and to give oneself."
