 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! Megan McGarry is the publisher of Magnetic  Revolution's
