Magnetic bracelets - a topic for discussion

The Good Life Letter 

4th September 2016

Recently I was mentioning the scorn reserved for natural remedies by sceptics and medics.

Well today I want to really get the debate going by talking about magnetic therapy.

Very few of my topics are guaranteed to start an argument in the way this one does – even amongst some of those who want a more natural life.

When I first began to research the concept I wasn’t sure of the true nature of magnets, and there was so much seemingly conflicting or confusing information. However the more I became involved with the idea the greater has been the evidence of magnetic therapy’s efficacy.

I've always had a great response whenever I've talked about magnetic therapy in The Good Life Letter though; for instance one reader wrote in:

“I have worn a magnetic bracelet for 3 months and have been amazed at the difference it has made. I would certainly recommend anyone with arthritic pain to try magnets.” M

Another emailed me to say:

“THIS DOES WORK. I'm a great fan of magnets both for healing and also a sense of general well being. I've worn magnetic bracelets now for over 3 years and found wearing one to be very beneficial.” E.D.

These are just two of the many readers who've been in touch praising the power of magnets, but believe me there are many more.

There are still sceptics of course.

People who won't ever be convinced to give them a go.  And that's fair enough.

But what worries me is that some people who DO have an interest in them are sometimes put-off by their experiences with shoddy product.

Look in the back of magazines and newspapers and you will find the type of product I’m talking about.

These tend to be very expensive and lacking in true magnetic power – and that just won’t help anyone.

If you'd like to see if magnets can help you, I'd suggest you try them out for yourself, remember they are available for men or women.

Are people right about magnets?

Many, many people through history have claimed that magnets can help relieve muscle and joint pains, ease depression and cure insomnia.

It sounds strange I know, but let's think about it rationally for a moment.

The earth is a huge magnet. There are magnetic fields all around us all the time. Many creatures, such as homing pigeons, butterflies, and bees can navigate using this magnetic field.

Even humans can roughly sense magnetic direction (except for Lara when she drives around Bristol).

One theory about how this works is based on a magnetic substance called magnetite, which has been discovered in the tissue of many living things, the human brain included.

Researchers have found magnetite clusters near the brain's all important, magnetically sensitive pineal gland, which secretes hormones that affect your whole body.

Not only are we affected by magnetic fields but we also generate them, thanks to the chemistry of our cells and nervous systems. For example, scientists can measure the brain and heart's magnetic fields.

Think of your body as being built out of individual 'electrical' cells. Each cell has a positive charge at its nucleus, and a negative charge on its outer membrane.

Plus, we are composed largely of water, a molecule that has a negatively charged oxygen end and positively charged hydrogen end and this fluid washes around every cell.

When tissues become disrupted by damage the delicate electrical balance is disturbed and cells begin to bind together rather than slide over each other – thus we need to apply something which will restore the normal order of things.

So by using magnetic energy, it may be possible to help the body regain the energy it needs to repair itself, and re-orientate the positive and negative charges.

The history of magnetic healing

From the times of Cleopatra man has utilised the combination of various metals as a mainstay of healing, even though they didn’t understand why.

By the 16th century a Swiss physician called Paracelsus pioneered the use of chemicals and minerals in medicine, identifying the potential for magnets to be used to treat conditions such as joint inflammation and even diarrhoea.

Then along came Franz Mesmer, an Austrian doctor who also helped begin the fields of hypnotism and psychoanalysis – but became better known for the pioneering work he did with magnets in helping those with sleep problems and depression.

In modern times magnets have been widely used in the diagnostic field as the basis of the MRI machines – where incredibly powerful magnets are used to give us a view of the internal workings of the body.

There have been recent studies which looked at the validity of this form of healing:

  • One study published in the British Medical Journal looked at how magnets could relieve osteoarthritis pain. A group of sufferers wore a standard strength magnetic band. A second group wore a weaker one. The third wore a 'fake magnet' band. The group wearing the standard strength magnets reported the most reduction in pain.
  • In a study at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston they found that magnets eased the pain in 76% of patients with 'post-polio' syndrome (which involved leg pain).
  • At New York Medical College of Valhalla, they found that magnetic footpads could ease foot pain in diabetics.
  • Dr. Mark S. George, an associate professor of psychiatry, neurology and radiology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, did a controlled experiment on the use of magnets to treat depression. He only studied twelve patients for two weeks, but further research seems to support his theory that magnetic pulses may help some patients with severe depression.
Even the NHS has begun to consider magnetic therapy as a realistic way to treat problems.

Last year NICE announced that it supported the use of magnetic therapy for migraine sufferers, a decision which allows NHS patients to receive therapy through pain specialists.

That there will be some who refuse to believe any of the claims I’ve covered today, I completely understand – but I would ask anyone who is even remotely interested to give one of these bracelets a try.
