I wrote a few years ago on Magnet Therapy as a treatment for Fibromyalgia and with most sufferers unable to access pain management programs at the moment, it may help by trying this at home. As always please DO NOT try anything new at home without talking to your GP first.
The Chinese use magnets, as well as acupuncture, and say the difference is just that needles work faster, but that magnets applied correctly are just as effective for some complaints.
They also think that the magnets are thought to stimulate the body’s ‘chi’ to promote healing. Apparently, Cleopatra is said to have worn a polished lodestone on her 3rd eye to maintain her beauty!
Although magnets became popular in the 19th and 20th centuries, the medical profession was against the use of them, but since then, magnets and magnetic products have become more and more popular with an increase in scientific studies showing the effectiveness of them.
Magnet Bracelets have become more and more popular especially for arthritis and are worn by males and females. A company called TRION have super strong magnets of 4000 Gauss which they say helps relieve symptoms of joint pain, arthritis and carpal tunnel. It also helps to improve the blood circulation and balance your body’s physiological magnetic field. They are available from Amazon for £34.99
A company who deal in magnets Synergy For Life say that ‘Therapeutic magnets deliver results – quickly, quietly, and inexpensively. Our products may be used over and over again by every member of your family.’ They have magnetic applications for every joint and muscle, as well as magnetic sleep and seating systems. As we enter a new era in self-managed health care, “soft” medical alternatives are preferred over drugs and surgery. Biomagnetic and electro-medical therapies are among the fastest growing “soft” modalities.
Q Magnets recently wrote a post on how their magnets can help with golf and other injuries and pain. Back pain, rotator cuff injury, tennis/golf elbow and knee pain can bother even the fittest among us and the first sign of trouble is loss of backswing. Loss of rotation maybe pain induced and is a sign your body isn’t as flexible as it used to be. Loss of swing-length affects your club head speed and invariably leads to higher scores. Q Magnets are one of the best natural pain relief technologies today.
A great book I ordered which explains all about the points with images and diagrams is Acupressure for Beginners: How to Release and Balance Energy Flow available from Amazon and all good book shops.
