After treatment by non-contact healing for pieces of cucumber, the intensity of biophotons from the cucumber increases. To study the details of physical and chemical mechanisms of non-contact healing, the authors gave magnetic stimuli to cucumber samples and compared biophoton data with data of non-contact healing. Magnetic treatments were done for 30 minutes by static magnetism (180mT), alternating magnetism (80mT, 50Hz) or pulse magnetism (maximum 0.6T, pulse width 2.5ms). Results showed that there was no change of biophoton intensities under conditions of static and alternating magnetic stimuli. Pulse magnetic stimuli decreased biophoton intensity (p=0.047, Wilcoxon, two tails), but the time transition differed from non-contact healing. Effects of magnetic stimuli were considered as different from those of non-contact healing.
