Mankind has been using magnets to heal the bodies aches and pains for hundreds of years. Historians show that the Ancient Egyptians and Ancient Greeks used them for medicinal or life-prolonging reasons. Modern man, however debunked their healing properties as being pure myth. Does magnetic force fields have an effect on the human body? Is it myth or one of ancient civilizations secrets, now revealed?
Recent studies have shown that magnets and magnetic fields had measurable effects on the blood vessels of rats. And we all know that whatever works on rats, stands a chance on working on humans. A more recent and well documented study on the effect of magnets on the human body, performed in 1997 at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston USA caused hte medical world to sit up and take notice.
The tests were performed on post polio patients. A selection were given placebo magnets, while others were given true magnetic jewelry. Neither patient nor staff knew who was wearing the placebos. Astonishingly enough, over 70% of those wearing the magnetic jewelry said that the level of pain they were experiencing lessened significantly.
Since then other studies have been conducted. None have been able to disprove the theory that magnetic therapy is indeed beneficial and helpful in curing certain ailments – especially those involving joint or bone pain.
Magnetic therapy is said to have been responsible for curing aches and pains, tension, and even depression! While a healthy skepticism of the benefits of magnetic therapy remains, it is becoming much more accepted by practitioners of alternative medicine.
Magnetic jewelry today is beautifully crafted. Metals used for creating magnetic jewelry include hermatite, titanium, tungsten or stainless steel. Designs are creative, tasteful and elegant. Some is even hand-crafted. Magnetic jewelry is no longer unattractive. To the contrary, it is well made and suitable for wearing on any occasion.
Fairly easy to locate, you can buy it on line very easily. Most on line retailers offer a guarantee with the product they sell. Whether or not you believe the claims made regarding the healing properties of magnetic jewelry, studies have proven that there has been a substantial increase in healing of joint pain with those who wear the jewelry. It is not expensive, and I would recommend anyone bothered by joint or muscle pain to try it.
You are encouraged to wear the jewelry 24 hours at first, not taking it to sleep or bathe. Appropriately magnetic jewelry does need to be applied for some time in order to begin working on your body. But once it starts, you will soon see the relief from pain and discomfort.
I figure that it's well worth trying. It's not expensive enough to be risking anything and if it did help, even a little, with those joint and muscle pains that seem to accompany getting older, then I'm all for it!
