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 days.

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.

Success Stories: 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 magnets?

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 your life?

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 March.

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

Hello Virginia,

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 effectively.

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 magnetic 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.

Tips Of The Month... 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!
