HEALTH BENEFITS OF MAGNETISM
What is magnetic therapy?
Magnetic therapy is a natural way to treat a wide variety of ailments in both humans and animals. It is 100% safe, drug free, non invasive and has no side effects. It works well as a therapy alone or in conjunction with natural and conventional therapies. Small high strength magnets are placed near your main arteries, or on the body as close to the point of pain as possible. Magnets can be applied in the form of jewellery, wraps, supports, therapy plasters, insoles, therapy pads and mattress pads. Wearing magnetic jewellery and drinking magnetised water on a daily basis can help encourage good health and general wellbeing.
How do magnets affect the blood?
Magnets are composed of metal alloys and attract many different types of metallic particles. Blood contains iron and when therapeutic magnets are placed on the skin the magnetic field penetrates through the skin and into the surrounding tissue and blood stream. The iron in the blood is attracted to the magnetic field and causes movement within the blood stream, the increased activity causes the blood flow to improve, increases oxygen levels, and distributes nutrients and hormones to the organs and tissues much more efficiently, helping promote the body’s natural pain killing chemicals endorphins. An injury or ailment supplied with fresh oxygen, nutrients and endorphins will heal much faster and the pain will be reduced.
How do magnetic fields affect cells?
Ions are positively and negatively charged particles that conduct electro-magnetic pulses from within the body’s cells. The electro-magnetic pulses allow the cell to function. In a normal healthy cell, the ions are distributed around the cell with all of the positive ions on one side and the negative ions on the opposite side. The ions which live outside of the cell in the tissue, align with those inside the cell so that opposing poles are together with the cell membrane between them. This allows fluid, oxygen and nutrients to move freely in and out of the cell, while maintaining the natural balance within the cell.
How do magnetic fields influence inflammation?
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 and start the process of removing the excess fluid from within the cell.
Magnetic fields also affect the white blood cells that surround an injury. White blood cells attack the infection and disease by producing antibodies or by eating the bacteria. During this process the white blood cells release toxins into the blood stream, the body cannot detoxify and excrete the toxins safely so they are stored in tissue as small pockets of fluid. When a magnetic field is present in the blood, toxins in the tissues are drawn out as the magnetised blood travels around the body. The toxins are then carried to the liver for detoxification and to the kidneys for excretion.
When inflammation in the body is reduced, the damage caused by the inflammatory process begins to be repaired by a fresh and rich supply of oxygen and nutrients. Cells start to heal, and tissue regeneration begins. The circulatory system returns to normal and the heart does not have to work so hard to pump extra fluid around the body.
How long does it take before any benefit is felt?
The magnetism will start working on the body immediately - helping stimulate its natural power to heal itself and enhance health and wellbeing. Magnetic fields will influence individual areas of the body in different ways. For example a swollen knee joint may respond very quickly to the presence of a magnetic field, with symptoms being alleviated with in just a few days. However the same person may treat another area of the body without the same quick response. The length of time that magnets will take to resolve the symptoms of an injury is entirely dependent on the severity of the ailment, the amount of inflammation surrounding the injured area, the cause of the ailment. Long standing chronic conditions, with large amounts of inflammation and cell damage will take longer to treat than a recent acute injury.
The process is similar when looking at different peoples reactions to magnets. Each individual will react to magnets in a slightly different way. Some people react very quickly to magnetic fields and others will take a longer period of time. An individual's medical history and symptoms must be taken into consideration when estimating how long magnets will take to work for a particular ailment.
Is it safe to use more than one Magnohealth product at a time?
Yes, many of our customers gain greater benefit from using magnets for specific areas, eg Magnohealth supports, Magnothealth Therapy Plasters in conjunction with drinking magnetized water and wearing Magnohealth jewellery for general health and wellbeing.
Do the magnets have to touch the skin?
The magnets do not have to be in direct contact with the skin to gain the therapeutic benefits, but should be in close proximity.
Who should not use magnetic therapy?
Magnetic fields can affect the heartbeat, therefore it is strongly recommended that anyone wearing a Pacemaker should not use magnets.
Magnetic products should not be used if pregnant or on infants - although there is no study showing adverse effects, such a study would not be approved by a medical body.
People who use defibrillators (ICD’s) should not use magnetic therapy.
It is a known fact that we should all drink 2.5 litres of water a day, but if we magnetise the water, the water molecules increase in size making it easier for our body to digest and process the water. Toxins are then removed much quicker and more easily as the larger water molecule can engulf the toxins and transport them safely out of the body. Magnetic water has a therapeutic effect on digestive, nervous and urinary systems, it provides a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system, helping kidney ailments, gout, obesity and premature aging. It revitalises the body and promotes an alkaline pH for the body, it infuses energy into the body, controls bacteria, and stimulates brain function.
