|Editorial: How Does
magnetic therapy relieves inflammation?
by Sanj Shimadry
When you have a chronic condition or an injury, the main reason why
you experience pain is because of inflammation which leads swelling of
the local area. Here's how magnetic therapy reduces the inflammation and
relieves the pain.
What happens to my body when I have inflammation?
The inflammatory reaction is one of the body’s oldest defence
mechanisms. When damage occurs the body’s automatic defence system
starts the inflammatory process within seconds. Blood flow is firstly
increased at the point of injury, the blood vessels widen to allow
oxygen, clotting agents and white blood cells to penetrate the damaged
tissues. Over a period of hours the concentration of white blood cells
increases at the injury site (white blood cells fight infection).
Individual cells are affected by the inflammatory process. Extra fluid
migrates from the blood vessels into the damaged cells; this begins the
process of disrupting the ionic balance of the cell. The chemical
balance of the cell changes and cellular degeneration begins. The
presence of extra fluid, white blood cells, increased blood flow with in
the tissues causes the damaged area to enlarge and swell, this is
commonly known as oedema.
How healing therapeutic magnets fight inflammation and swelling?
When therapeutic 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 with in the cell. Cell
damage will stop and healing of the cells will begin over a period of
When inflammation in the body is alleviated, the damage caused by the
inflammatory process begins to be repaired by a fresh and rich supply of
oxygen and nutrients. Cells that have been disrupted and de-oxygenised
begin to heal and tissue regeneration starts. Excess fluid is eliminated
from the body and toxins are excreted. The circulatory system returns to
normal and the heart does not have to work so hard to pump extra fluid
around the body. Magnetic therapy fields will stabilise all of these
processes and aid the body in its recovery.

Magnetic Therapy Gave Me My Life Back
A special interview
between Dee Parsons (Pain Nurse Specialist) and an ex pain sufferer
describing how magnetic therapy changed her life.
Dee: Tell me a little bit about yourself.
Janet: I’m 64 and I have had arthritis for 20 years which has
gradually got worse. Everything came to a head last September and a
friend of my mum’s said that she had tried some magnets. I was really
willing to try anything at this point and take any advice. So I came
along and bought a magnetic mattress cover, a neck wrap and some wrist
bands. After about 3 weeks I couldn’t believe the results I was getting.
Dee: Before trying magnetic therapy had you tried anything else
to relieve your pain?
Janet: No, I had a lot of pain 20 years ago and I had to start
taking medication for my arthritis, which then caused a lot of other
problems. I then had to switch to Paracetamol and painkillers which I
now don’t have to take a lot of anyway.
Dee: Where you sceptical about using magnetic therapy?
Janet: Oh yes, I was sceptical but I was at a stage where I was
willing to try any treatment because I was in so much pain. I also had a
few falls a couple of years ago which left me with pain in my foot.
There was nothing that could be done but I had wrapped a magnet around
the foot each night and it was amazing the results that I had.
Dee: Does this make you want to tell everybody else about the
Janet: Oh yes, I have told an awful lot of people and I know a
lot of people have tried magnets for themselves. I have told them that
it is not a cure but it is something that can help to maintain a good
standard of life, virtually pain free.
Dee: Does anybody else in your family use them apart from you?
Janet: My son has had them. He is only 42 but he does play a lot
of sport and he occasionally get pain in his arms and his legs. He said
to me that he wanted to try a magnetic mattress cover, which he then
did. He wouldn’t be without it now.
Dee: How would you say that using healing magnets has changed
Janet: Well it’s given me my life back because I was starting to
get very crippled and the pain was getting me down. I didn’t look well
and I didn’t feel well and everyday seemed to be a trial. Now people
have noticed how much I am skipping around, I’m wonderful. I wouldn’t
stop using them now. You have to learn how to wear magnets because they
need to be where the pain is. I would say that having the magnetic
mattress cover was a turning point in my life. I take the magnetic
travel pad with me on holiday. I always have them with me. I don’t even
have to think about it now.
Dee: Thank you Janet, for sharing with us how magnetic therapy
changed your life.
Here's the exact same
magnetic products that Janet used.

|Ask The Experts: What
Can I Use For My Back Pain?
I’ve been having lower back / leg problems since June of 2006, also carpal
tunnel symptoms in my right wrist/ hand. MRI showed 1 bulging and 1 protruding
discs in cervical area; 2 bulging and 2 protruding discs in lumbar area (all with
mild compression of a nerve); also a left medial meniscus tear. I’ve been to the
Chiropractor for IDD (decompression) therapy 3 times a week since the beginning of
I’m no worse, the pain is definitely greatly improved and I’m not as tired, I am
sleeping better. Yet, I am not able to return to my normal activities. Running
the vacuum sweeper wears me out & makes my lower back and legs ache/tired/weak.
I’m very involved with my son’s Cub scout group (hiking, camping, etc.). Riding
in the car for more than 30 minutes makes it very difficult to walk.
I was on prednisone from late November 2006 to mid January 2007. Since then I’ve
used only OTC pain relievers , with caution. I am a registered nurse. I know
that exercise and diet are very important to improving all of this. I’m
sceptical also. Can you send me some further information/suggestions? Thanks for
your assistance. Virginia in Ohio
Unfortunately it is very common for nurses to suffer with back problems.
The type of work that they do put incredible strain on the back over the years
and can cause many problems later on, anything from mild back ache to sciatica
and herniated discs.
Magnetic therapy is very effective at treating back pain, as long as you
are using the correct magnetic products and the recommended way; magnets can
reduce pain by huge amounts.
The pain in your legs is most likely caused by the compression on the
nerves in your back, so by treating the back you should also see an
improvement in your legs.
From what you have told me this is a long term chronic condition, that has
severely affected your life, stopped you from doing everyday activities and has
caused you to regularly use pain relieving medication. This type of condition
would require the highest strength and amount of magnets to treat it
This would mean using more than just one item. Combining magnetic products
increases their overall effectiveness and really relieves much higher and longer
term pain much more quickly than just using one device on its own.
I would advise a
back treatment package especially designed for this type of condition. It
should include a high strength magnetic back belt to be worn continuously, a
high strength magnetic bed pad, a magnetic water wand for magnetising your cold
drinks, a gel pack that you can pop in the freezer to use as an ice pack and a
hand held massage tool to allow you to frequently massage the area yourself.
The combination of constantly using magnets on the outside of your body
throughout the day and night by using the magnetic belt and bed pad, will
provide the body with a source of magnetism during the day while you are out and
about and an extra source at night when the body is relaxed and more efficient
at absorbing the magnetic field.
The addition of drinking magnetized water not only helps to detoxify the body,
reduce inflammation in the digestive system, lower high blood pressure and
cholesterol level it will also increase the overall effectiveness of all of your
magnetic products by up to 10 times.
The massage and ice really explain themselves. When you have a back
problem that causes aggravation to a nerve regular use of gentle massage
and ice treatment can really help to ease the pressure off that nerve.
If you need any further help or advice please get back to me.

How to know if your magnets are working!
How do you know if
magnetic therapy is working for you. Because magnetic healing is a
process that takes place over a few weeks, it can be quite hard to
notice the gradual difference that occurs. If you have used magnetic
products continuously for 4 weeks and have not noticed any improvement
in your pain, simply stop using all the magnets for the coming 2 weeks.
You will most probably notice your pain getting a bit worse...Which
means the magnets are working!
