How do they really work?
by Megan McGarry

Can magnets actually help us feel better? When I first read
about this theory I was somewhat skeptical but curious. After
looking into it further and trying out a few magnetic products,
I was pleasantly surprised. Let me tell you a few things I
found out.

Research has shown that when charged particles pass
through a magnetic field, they generate a current, which
produces heat, expands blood vessels, and increases
blood flow. This in turn can stimulate the body to heal
faster, as the movement of oxygen and other nutrients
to the cells increases and unwanted waste and toxins
are flushed from the system. Although the body will often
heal in its own time, we can expedite nature's clock by
applying a magnetic field. Through the use of magnets
we can aid the cell's natural ability to heal itself by
providing the optimal environment for that repair.

As described in Sherry Kahn's book, Healing Magnets,
magnet therapy relieves pain, speeds healing, and
appears to restore balance when our systems get out
of whack. While research is still somewhat limited,
a variety of studies have been done in which magnetic
therapy has been helpful for conditions such as back,
neck, and shoulder pain, bone fractures, carpal tunnel
syndrome, dental problems, depression, fatigue, female
problems, fibromyalgia, foot pain (diabetic neuropathy),
headaches, high blood pressure, insomnia, multiple
sclerosis, osteoarthritis, Parkinson's's disease, postpolio
syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, skin problems, soft-tissue
injuries, recovery from surgery, wound healing, etc.

One particular randomized, double-blind,
placebo-controlled trial was conducted by Dr. Michael
Weintraub and published in the May 5, 2003 issue of
the Archives of Physical Medicine (a leading publication
on rehabilitative medicine that is part of the American
Medical Association family of scholarly journals) confirms
that the constant wearing of static, permanent, magnetic
insoles produces statistically significant reduction of
neuropathic pain. Furthermore, Dr. Weintraub concludes
that magnetic therapy is comparable or superior to that
observed with various conventional drugs and has the
advantage of being non invasive and is also less expensive
and has no side effects.

A variety of products such as insoles, sleep systems,
water systems, wraps, massage balls, and pads that
you can place on different parts of your body contain
magnets in them and can be used to help us feel better.
Keep in mind that individuals with a pace maker or in
their first trimester of pregnancy should not use
magnetic products.

Give magnets a try, you will likely be amazed by the
difference they make in your life!
