Heal You Body Naturally
Q: What is Magnetic Therapy?
A: The unique component of magnetic therapy is E.M.F. which stands for a multi-directional Electro Magnetic Force which relieves pain and promotes healing. A magnet has two poles, North and South. Opposite poles attract and conversely like poles repel. When a magnet is placed on the body, the magnetic properties in the body's cells will either attract those that are opposite or repel those that are alike. In this way the activity of the cells is increased which in turn increases the rate at which the cells regenerate and repair.
Q: How long has Magnetic Therapy been in use?
A: Magnetic therapy was first used by the Chinese 4,000 years ago. Many cultures, including the Chinese, Greeks, Egyptians and Europeans, have applied magnets to relieve pain and other symptoms. However, the size and weight of the magnets existing during that time, made them difficult to use. Today, stronger magnetic materials have led to a surge of modern day magnetic therapy. It is currently use by over 150 million people worldwide.
Since the 1960s, clinical studies in the United States have shown magnetic therapy to be an effective method for relieving pain and discomfort. Japan and many eastern European countries have conducted hundreds of studies for over 30 years, and researchers continue to find that it provides tremendous benefits for a wide range of conditions. Physicians in the United States using magnetic therapy in their practices have reported excellent results with their patients.
Q: How does Magnetic Therapy Work?
A: One theory is that the magnetic field affects the iron component of the blood and therefore increases the circulation. Another theory is that this magnet field provides energy and extra oxygen in the white blood cells which help with their main function as the fighters of infection, thus decreasing the amount of pain and inflammation and aiding the body to recover homeostasis.
Q: How can Magnetic Therapy help me?
A: Poor circulation can be blamed for many illness, By using Magnetic Therapy, the effects of the following conditions, can be eased, migraine, neck, back and leg pains, period pains, depression, arthritis, rheumatism and many more.
Good circulation in the body is one of the keys to good health, it takes oxygen and nourishment around the body and clears away the waste products that if left build up and cause ill health.
The magnets, which are used in magnetic therapy, are accepted as safe by the World Health Organisation.
Q: Is Magnetic Therapy suitable for everyone?
A: It is suitable for anyone suffering from pain mainly adults, but as a precaution certain people should not use them.
a) Pregnant women
b) Those fitted with pacemakers or any other medical devices or implants
c) Anyone working with high voltage machinery
d) After surgery, because magnets may interfere with the healing process.
Q: Is Magnetic Therapy Safe?
A: Magnets are 100% safe and non-invasive but they should be kept separately from any other electrical
appliances such as televisions, computers, computer discs, cassettes and credit cards, as their magnetic fields may interfere which each other.
Q: What is Gauss Strength?
A: Gauss is a measure of a magnet's magnetic field strength. Generally the surface gauss of a magnet is used in descriptions of the strength of bio-magnets. The gauss strength of at least 2000 is recognised to be one that is beneficial in pain management and 2000 and above is the strength that is generally used in all our magnetic products.
Q: Do the magnets have to touch the skin?
A: They do have to be in direct contact with the skin and the magnets should be in close proximity of the blood veins.
Q: How long does it take for Magnetic Therapy to work?
A: As everyone is different, the effects are averagely felt between one to two weeks of using magnetic therapy, although in extreme cases some people have noticed improvements within the first 24 hours.
Q: How long will the plating last on jewellery?
A: This can greatly vary on a person’s life style, the level of acidity in their perspiration, always being worn and in constant contact with water, detergents, soaps etc. can cause the plating to wear off quicker than normal, however most users replace.
a) Copper Rings are normally replaced every year. (Plated On Copper)
b) Copper Bracelets normally replaced every year. (Plated On Copper)
c) Link Bracelets normally replaced every year. (Plated On Alloy)
d) Stainless Steel Bracelets normally replaced every 2 years. (Plated On Stainless Steel)
