It is believed that the magnet, besides having the power of attracting iron, is also endowed with many mystical and curative powers. Keeping in view these and other innumerable positive properties of the magnet and with the objective of deriving the maximum benefit from its qualities. 'Magnetotherapy'-the system of treating patients through the medium of magnets-is discussed in this course.
A Science and an Art
Magnet therapy is both a science and an art. This science as magnetism is similar to, and works on the lines of, electricity and its application is an art as it involves the selection of magnets of different strength. To different parts, to relieve different ailments of the body. It is a system of treatment, which covers a vast field of therapeuties and can relieve almost all functional defects of the various systems working in the human body. Magnet therapy is based on natural laws and principles and is not a magic or miracle. It means carrying out treatment of the sick with application of magnets over the suffering part of the body.
How Magnetic Therapy is Beneficial to the Human Body
WHAT IT DOES
Magnetic fields upon the body help to energize and boost the rate of circulation; stimulating nutrient rich blood flow thus invigorating your metabolism by oxygenating the organs providing muscle and tissue more oxygen for mental and physical vigor while accelerating the ridding of body wastes, flushing out unwanted toxins, releasing more endorphins, the body's natural pain killers promoting repair and stimulating faster healing; improving the bodies anti- infective activity and enhancing immunity; normalizes endocrine production by helping to regulate and balance endocrine functions; affecting enzyme production for reducing swelling, stiffness and the acidity from wounds helping in reducing inflammation; stimulating collagen density in and around joints proven in studies to heal bones and joints faster and to help alleviate chronic pain and invigorate overall well-being.
HOW IT HELPS
Wounds and painful areas of the body are marked by a lack of oxygen, off pH & poor circulation. It is believed that magnetic stimulation helps with the normalization of calcium ion flow which control the attraction of calcium ions to help heal broken bones or help to remove calcium build-up from painful arthritic joints. The acid / alkaline [pH] balance of body fluids can be altered by magnetic fields; magnetic fields also alter enzyme activity & biochemical processes with the lower frequencies relieving pain, inflammation and bruising, using the higher frequencies for the relaxing of blood vessels allowing increased blood flow for a boost to your natural healing abilities. A negative magnetic field is used to normalize disturbed metabolic functions causing painful conditions like inflammation and cell degeneration. Magnetic fields put directly on top of the head has been proven to have a calming effect.
Magnetism is an all natural choice and tool whose forces penetrate into the channels and collaterality of the body to help regulate its physiological functions. Magnetic fields affect the relaxation and constriction of capillary blood vessels affecting blood flow; as proven by studies about blood microcirculation.
