Magnets aren't just for the fridge these days.
Alternative medicine commonly called "magnetic
therapy" has some people wearing magnetic
jewelry for every ailment from arthritis to cancer.
Believers in magnetic therapy contend that magnetic
fields have amazing healing properties.
In 1954, Dr. Linus Pauling, received a Nobel
Prize for his discovery of the magnetic properties
of hemoglobin. Pauling found that iron, and
many electrolytic salts in our blood, circulate
Therefore, the proximity of a magnetic field
may result in an acceleration of circulation
and the transfer of energy to all areas of
The idea of using magnets to benefit the human
body isn't a new idea. The "Gale Encyclopedia
of Alternative Medicine" reports that magnets
were a part of the healing arts as long ago as
200 B.C. in China. Chinese doctors have known
for millennia that a magnetic field, when next
to the body, could markedly increase the wearers
vital life force, known as Chi. The observed
benefits were found to increase with the magnets

magnets in our bracelets effect all the important
acupuncture points of the wrist.
How does magnet
A painful area almost always lacks blood circulation
and oxygen. The area usually is highly acidic...
Arthritis negatively affects blood
flow, which means that circulation is
poor and there isn't enough oxygen in
the problem area to decrease the inflammation.
A magnetic bracelet has many magnets,
This promotes circulation in affected
areas, which have a positive polarity.
With more blood comes more oxygen, reducing
the inflammation and lessening the pain.
More symptoms of poor circulation
Cold hands and feet.
Dizziness when standing quickly.
Tinnitus and hearing loss.
The use of a good strength bracelets
to combat poor circulation in the hands.
You would need to wear a bracelet on
each wrist for maximum benefit. The
magnetic field will increase circulation
to the wrist, hand and fingers. It
is advocated that the bracelet be worn
at all times 24 hours a day 7 days
a week to obtain the best results.
According to Healthline Networks,
two theories explain magnetic therapy. One maintains
that magnets produce a slight electrical current.
When magnets are applied to a painful area of
the body, the nerves in that area are stimulated,
thereby releasing the body's natural painkillers.
The other theory states that when magnets are
applied to a painful area of the body, all the
cells in that area react to increased blood circulation,
ion exchange, and oxygen flow to the area. Magnetic
fields attract and repel charged particles in
the bloodstream, increasing blood flow and producing
heat. Increased oxygen in the tissues and blood
stream is thought to make a considerable difference
in the speed of healing.
What are the benefits
of magnets and magnetic therapy?
As the name suggests, magnetic bracelets work
on the principle of magnetic therapy. It involves
the application of magnetic field of electromagnetic
devices to different parts of the body, with
an intention to achieve the purported magnetic
bracelet benefits. Wearing magnetic bracelets
or other magnetic jewelry, is known to keep the
magnetic field in the body in a balanced state,
or let's say, in a state of alignment. So, in
this way, the magnetic therapy is able to reduce
the symptoms of several kinds of medical conditions.
According to people who have actually experienced
the benefit of wearing magnetic bracelets, conditions
such as poor blood circulation, insomnia, slow
healing, broken bones, improved after they started
using such jewelry. Also, stomach disorders,
stress, anxiety, inflammation, arthritis, incontinence,
have also known to have been treated by the use
of these bracelets
Some of the benefits that magnetic therapy claims
to provide include:
• Reduction of swelling
• Improved tissue alkalinization
• More restful sleep
• Increased tissue oxygenation
• Relief of stress
• Increased levels of cellular oxygen
• Improved blood circulation
• Anti-infective activity
Magnetic Therapy may help with many types of
Pain, including Osteopathic and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Magnets have been reported to aid in Pain Management
and be helpful in the treatment of many chronic
conditions like Inflammation and Arthritis, Carpel
Tunnel, Fybromyalgia, Chronic Pain etc. Magnets
and have also been reported to energize and improve
circulation and oxygenate the blood and reduce
inflammation. This aids in the body's ability
to heal itself
|In the last 15 years a prolific increase
in medical research into magnetic therapy.
There have been over 57 studies in the
USA into incurable diseases and magnetics.
Some of the most recent are:
1990 – University if Hawaii
tested magnetic fields on patients
1992- Stiller et al a randomised double blind trial of wound healing
in venous leg wounds.
1999- New York Medical College tested magnetic insoles on diabetic
2001- University of Virginia tested magnetic mattress covers on
patients with Fibromyalgia.
2004- University of Exeter and Plymouth tested magnetic bracelets
on patients with osteoarthritis
If you suffer with wrist, hand
and arm pain, Quite possibly you have any of
the conditions listed below and you will more
than likely be experiencing pain and muscle spasms
in your hand and wrist. You may even have shooting
pains and pins and needles up your arms.
The 5 medical conditions in question are:
1. Arthritis- osteo and rheumatoid.
2. Carpal tunnel syndrome.
4. Repetitive strain injury.
|A spokeswoman for the Arthritis Research
Campaign said: "We funded this study
because we wanted to establish if there
was any evidence for the claims made on
behalf of magnetic bracelets; and we didn't
want the public to waste their money on
devices that didn't work.
"Results appear to show that
wearing a magnetic bracelet does reduce
pain in people with hip and knee osteoarthritis"
"As magnetic bracelets are
quite cheap and safe, people with osteoarthritis
might want to consider wearing them
as part of their self-help regime."
people find that magnetic bracelets improve
their overall health
while addressing nagging
It is a non-invasive therapy because there are
no injections and you don't have to take any
It seems to sedate the nerves and therefore inhibits the pain
It has a relaxing effect on the muscles
A recent study revealed that magnetic bracelets
help relieve pain associated with osteoarthritis.
The research focused on 194 patients in the age
group of 45-80, suffering from osteoarthritis
of the hip or knee. The patients were divided
into 3 groups. One group was asked to wear standard
strength magnetic bracelets, while the other
2 groups were given a weak magnetic bracelet
and a dummy bracelet. The results were quite
encouraging. Patients who wore the standard magnetic
bracelet for a period of 12 weeks experienced
great relief from the pain. However, the group
wearing weak magnetic bracelets did not find
any significant change in their condition. The
non-magnetic dummy bracelet was hardly of any
|British Medical Journal Report
Research concluded that the pain
due to osteoarthritis reduces considerably
by wearing a standard magnetic bracelet.
A detailed report about this research
was published in the British Medical
Journal. The report clearly states
that the patients did not stop their
existing treatment. It has thus concluded
that magnetic therapy combined with
pre-existing treatments showed health
benefits. So patients are advised
to follow their treatments as prescribed
by the doctor.
How Do Magnetic
Magnets have been shown
to promote faster healing by stimulating your
own body to heal itself. It is non-invasive;
it does not involve needles, pins, drugs or
surgery Relieves many types of Pain, including
Osteopathic and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
It has a sedating effect on nerve tissue, sedates or inhibits pain.
The magnetism in the bracelets stimulates the
negative and positive charges in the body and
helps them to restore the health of the body.
It brings a normal charge back to each cell in
the body and helps to restore the ph balance.
The magnetic bracelet sends an electric charge
through the body helping to regulate the hormones
in the blood stream. The electric signal seems
to interfere with the regular signal your body
is sending to the brain and therefore it helps
to minimize the pain signals.
A magnetic bracelet can also help to bring more
oxygen to the blood, bringing important nutrients
to damaged cells in the body. It also helps to
dissolve the build up of fat deposits and help
in weight reduction. You should remember to drink
lots of water when you are wearing one of these
bracelets so that the magnets can bring the calcium
to the bones quickly and easily.
IMPORTANCE OF BLOOD CIRCULATION
The importance of good and efficient circulation
can never be over-emphasized. Health and
fitness is to a large extent dependent
on the state of the blood circulation in
a human body.
Blood is carried to different parts of
the body by the blood vessels – arteries,
veins and capillaries. The heart pumps blood containing oxygen to the rest
of the body through arteries. The veins collect impure or de-oxygenated blood
from different parts of the body and return it to the heart. From here, blood
passes through the lungs, where oxygen is added, and once again blood is sent
back to the heart to be distributed in the body.
The main function of blood is to transport oxygen, nutrition and hormones to
cells all over the body and to remove waste products. Food in the form of Glucose
(blood sugar) is needed by our cells for normal functioning. Waste products
produced by the metabolism are filtered by the kidneys as the blood flows through
them. Blood also carries chemicals, enzymes and cells to fight infections and
control bodily functions.
Personal Use of
Magnetic therapy is also helpful
with other conditions, such as
Tennis elbow and many more
Magnets can stimulate electrical pathways in
the brain responsible for hormone levels and
production, particularly serotonin and melatonin.
Stable serotonin and melatonin levels can help
with migraines, depression and stress--even insomnia.
Magnetic bracelets can help to prevent headaches
and also make them less intense when they do
occur, and can also increase endorphins, providing
natural pain relief and a sense of euphoria.
Does it make a
Difference on which wrist you wear Magnetic

points on the wrist. As we are individuals, the
best way to judge is to wear a bracelet on one
wrist for a certain time period to see if it
will help with your unique situation. Switching
wrists to obtain different results for your problem
is recommended by some sources. (It is not recommended
that any jewelry be worn in a shower or while
doing dishes to prevent soap scum build-up between
How Soon Will
I Get Results?
Each individual will experience comforting
results at a differing time factor. Much depends
on the severity of the condition and how long
it has existed. Some users report receiving
comfort within a few minutes, others have said
it took a few hours, while others have said
it took a few days
Every person’s body reacts to substances,
chemicals and electrical impulses in a slightly
different way. Your doctor may prescribe, for
example, Tramadol ( a morphine based pain killer)
to one patient with a dose of 50mg four times
a day, another patient may be prescribed 100mg
four times a day. The reason for this difference
in dosage is that the first person metabolises
(absorbs) the drug very easily, the second person
does not metabolise the drug very easily so the
pain relief is not as efficient and they require
a stronger dose to feel the same level of pain
relief as the first person.
This principle is exactly the same with magnetic
therapy, some people absorb a magnetic field
very easily and rapidly and will feel a very
dramatic respond in just a day or two. At the
other end of the scale a few people absorb a
magnetic field very slowly and they will find
that they have to persevere for as long as 6
weeks before their body responds to the magnetic
field. I might add that this group is very small.
There is no average length of time for results
as they vary so much between individuals but
most people will have felt a result at some point
within 2 days-2 weeks of commencing treatment.
Can be worn around wrist and
Most people have heard about using magnets to
treat the symptoms of arthritis and joint pain,
but not many people are aware of the extremely
wide range of ailments magnets can help with.
There are numerous conditions that can be successfully
treated with magnets
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (M.E)
High Blood Pressure
Poor Circulation (P V D)
Repetitive Strain Injury (R.S.I)
Pain Tennis Elbow
Research is currently taking place in over 300
hospitals world wide into magnetic therapy and
the conditions mentioned above, the more we learn
about the abilities of magnetic devices the more
ailments we will be able to treat successfully.Source
Healthy individuals can also use a magnetic
therapy bracelet to purify their body naturally
cleansing it from all the toxins and contaminants.
The creation of the magnetic field provides
for the improvement of the blood flow. In turn
this allows for larger portions of the oxygen
and beneficial chemical nutrients that we intake
to reach the body cells more quickly. As a
result the metabolism is improved, people become
more energetic and refreshed. The looks are
also improved with the skin being rejuvenated,
more radiant and elastic. Some bracelet users
have also enjoyed a reduction in the stress
levels they experience as well as a sounder
If you use a computer, either wear your magnets
at night while you sleep. Don't wear magnets
near your watch. Magnets work up to 6 inches
from their source. So if they are touching you
anywhere on your body they are working. Don't
lay them on your Credit cards or magnetic type
People who are pregnant or have a pacemaker
or other implant should not use magnetic bracelets.
