Before we get into magnet
bracelets and all the things we love about
them, let’s start with a simple appreciation of magnets. These practical tools
feature many uses. We can use magnets to hang and mount our kids’ best artwork
on the fridge. Speaking of magnets on the fridge… magnets are just plain fun --
from alphabet refrigerator magnets to ones inside toy building blocks! You know
that magnets have many practical applications.
Did you know that magnets might have healing properties,
too? Allow us to explain…
Making the Case for Magnets
For many years alternative medicine has considered whether
magnetic properties can heal pain. Recent studies have shown they just might.
In a recent study, scientists created a hydrogel pumped with magnets. When
applying pressure to an injured area, the magnets suppressed the pain signaling
of the neurons.
Another way that
magnets might support health and well-being is by calming inflammation. In
2008, the University
of Virginia developed research supporting the
fact that magnets can increase the flow of blood returning oxygenated blood to
the injured tissue. Thus, in turn, reduces inflammation around the body.
An Alternative Way to Heal
With this research
in mind, magnets might provide a natural alternative to pain relief. While
we’re not suggesting you should walk around with magnets in your pockets, we do
think sporting one on your wrist in the form of a fashionable bracelet, watch
or band is a great idea!
Studies have found that magnets might help relieve common culprit pain areas, such as
the knees, especially from ailments like arthritis. This relief could even be
equal to that from anti-inflammatory medication. However, as with any holistic
approach, a person is able to skip the never ending list of side effects
commonly associated with traditional over-the-counter and prescription
It turns out,
magnets might help with more than just pain!
The idea of magnetic
therapy dates back 2,000 years. Healers
of the time and in the region of Europe and Asia used magnetic therapy as a
tool for healing the body for many reasons. They believed that it worked by
sucking the disease and toxins out of the body.
therapy is used to treat inflammation, migraines, depression, and reportedly
also helps improve circulation.
