Just like what its name suggests, magnetic therapy is a form of healing that utilizes magnets to achieve the desired health effects. It is based on the idea that certain cells or tissues in the human body emit magnetic fields that are disrupted when various illnesses or diseases strike. Proponents believe that placing magnets in strategic places can restore those energy fields, causing the reversal of various conditions and elimination of their causative factors.
With the help of special bracelets, necklaces and even shoe insoles, magnetic therapy is available for all to enjoy. The use of these purported healing instruments takes advantage of static or constant magnets — magnets whose magnetic fields do not vary. There are magnetic therapy clinics nowadays that also utilize electromagnets that require electricity to pass through them in order to work. What’s more, a simple manipulation of electric current can change their magnetic fields.
Proponents believe that placing magnets on the body helps restore the normal magnetic field given off by cells and tissues that tend to get disrupted when a particular illness or disease is present. With the help of magnets in bringing back the normal magnetic fields emitted, it is said that improvement or eradication of the health problem can be attained.
Magnetic therapy is commonly recommended for people suffering from physical pains and aches. This kind of treatment is said to be very beneficial for those who afflicted with headaches, migraines, inflamed joints and even bone fractures. Basically, it is said that the use of magnets helps enhance the body’s ability to heal itself.
Proponents believe that magnetic therapy helps improve blood circulation, increase the amount of oxygen molecules available to the cells, improve various metabolic processes and make the body attain a less acidic environment. Magnetic therapy is also being used to manage stress, depression, degenerative diseases, and even cancers and tumors.
Numerous researches have been conducted on the efficacy of magnetic therapy in various situations but many of them had disproved that the use of static and electromagnets have any favorable impact on the illnesses and diseases the form of healing is said to be very good at. However, it cannot be denied that the positive and negative charges of magnets have various effects on the human body. More research is needed to find out if this can actually promote healing in the long run.
