What is Magnetic Therapy?
This article explore the scientific basis behind magnetic therapy and why is it
effective at reducing painful conditions such as arthritis, back pain,
spondylosis, fibromyalgia and many more...
Historically it is reported that magnets have been around
for an extremely long time. Magnets were first documented around 2500-3000 years
BC. Magnets have been used in Chinese medicine from around 2000 BC
in-conjunction with reflexology and acupuncture. It is still used today as a
first line treatment for many common complaints. However the last 15 years has
shown a prolific increase in medical research into magnetic therapy. There have
been over 57 studies in the USA into incurable diseases and magnetics.
Science has discovered that a magnetic field over and around
the point of pain increases blood flow in the effected area. The blood contains
iron and when therapeutic magnets are placed on the skin the magnetic field
penetrates through the skin and into the surrounding tissues and blood stream.
The iron in the blood is attracted to the magnetic field, this causes movement
within the blood stream and the increased activity causes the blood flow to
improve. This increased blood flow carries with it greater quantities of oxygen,
vital nutrients, and especially endorphins which relieve and soon remove and
alleviate the pain.
When static magnets are placed over an area of inflammation,
the magnetic field penetrates through the skin and deep into the tissues and
blood stream. Damaged cells will react to the presence of a magnetic field by
realigning their ions into the correct position. This begins the process of
eliminating the excess fluid from within the cell. Cell damage will stop and
healing of the cells will begin over a period of days. In real terms the effects
of these magnets will reduce pain and discomfort in and around the area that
they are placed.
The truth is, magnets need to be placed directly over the
area of pain to have an effect. Unfortunately you cannot treat the whole of your
body with just one magnet. Magnets do not block the pain signal. They work on
the cause of the pain, which is why static magnets have to placed as close to
the point of pain as possible. In short, wherever your pain is located you must
place the magnets within that area or the very close proximity.
The pain reducing effects will remain for as long as the
magnets remain in place, thus reducing the need for other analgesics.
Best of all, magnets are natural, contain no drugs or
chemicals and have no known side effects. Magnets leave a lasting and deeply
beneficial reduction of painful symptoms for 82% of users that will stay with
them for as long as they continue to use them.
Research studies have shown magnets to be effective in 82% of
cases and have demonstrated benefits in the following conditions:
Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Spondylosis, Fibromyalgia, general
joint pain, muscular pain, M.S., stroke, insomnia, migraine, stress, depression,
bowel disorders, Diabetes, high blood pressure and poor circulation.
