Have you ever considered using magnets to help with your aches and pains, help you get better sleep, or to just relax?
Magnets have been used since ancient times by many cultures (the Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese, and Indians) to help the body to heal. Magnets are becoming popular now with athletes to help shorten their recovery time after training and performing an for relief from discomfort.
The human body was designed to live in the Earth’s magnetic field which has been declining over the years due to pollution and the artificial electromagnetic radiation we create with electricity. We further diminish the effects of the Earth’s magnetic field on us by sitting in front of computers and televisions and by riding in cars. This is one of the reasons why we are more tired and more stressed than we have ever been before.
Scientists disagree whether magnets can actually affect our bodies because the field from most static magnets is not strong enough to penetrate the body more than a few millimeters. At that depth magnets are not likely to affect the iron in our blood, help circulation, or affect nerve conduction. On the other hand, some scientists do believe that magnets can help those functions.
Either way, what they don’t consider is the effect that magnets have on our energy system. I think most people now accept that we have an energy field around us. Some call it an aura or the energy body. It is a subtle energy than can be easily influenced by magnets and doesn’t require the magnetic field to penetrate very far into our bodies. By placing a magnet inside the body’s energy field we have an effect not the energy field which then creates an effect within the body.
The Health Magnet
I use magnets on myself, on my family, and on my massage clients and have had excellent results. There have been a few people don’t feel anything, but most people feel something within a few minutes. The magnets I use vary between 300 and 1800 Gauss and are plenty strong enough to have an affect on the body, especially the energy body.
There is a lot of noise on the internet about whether magnets work or not, how strong they should be, the right polarity, and the best pattern for the magnets to be laid out. I don’t think any of that really matters. What is important is if they work for you, if you feel something when you use them. I great way to do that is to get a magnetic massage. I have a magnetic roller that feels great when rolled up and down the back.
I once had someone try a magnetic bracelet to see if it would help with discomfort from arthritis in her wrist. She wore it all day and she said she felt something, which means that something was happening. Her husband saw the bracelet and told her that magnetic bracelets don’t work, so she returned it. Even though she felt it herself, she let someone else’s disbelief overrule her own experience. The bottom line is that you have to try them for yourself and make your own decision whether they work for you or not.
Leave me a comment on your experience with magnets. I look forward to reading what you have to say.
Take a look at the magnets that I use.
