We shall look at the benefits of wearing magnetic bracelets on our body.
There are many viewpoints and theories as to how magnets may work therapeutically. The theories are old and new, derived from science and from complementary medicine. Specific physiological effects have been reported, although further research is required.
Magnets and Blood – the Essence of Life: One way in which magnetic bracelets are believed to work is via the magnetic influence over the blood flow at the wrist arteries, there are two main arteries at the wrist. The quality and efficiency of its flow around the body has a major impact on our ability to heal; our health, fitness and vitality.
The effect on the quality of the blood is probably one of the main healing benefits of using a magnetic bracelet. Improved blood quality results in a reduction of inflammation, reduced calcium deposits, lactic acid and other toxins. Tissues detoxify and the healing process begins with hopefully a reduction in pain.
It has also been reported that magnets when nerve fibres are subject to a magnetic field, possibly producing endorphins, which are the body’s own natural pain killers.
It is also believed that the magnets stimulate key acupressure points on the wrist area to give relief from pain in the wrist or hand. Wrist acupressure points are used in traditional acupuncture to help with elbow, shoulder, arm and neck problems, as well as with other health issues including insomnia, stress, digestive problems and headaches.
Magnetism by speeding up the migration of calcium ions. May also be influenced by exposure to magnetic fields; this hormone helps promote restful sound sleep.
The above benefits are also increased if copper is brought into the equation. Copper is a long time favourite for arthritic conditions. It is though that the body may be lacking copper in these types of conditions, so wearing a copper bracelet helps to redress the balance. A copper bracelet with magnets strategically placed inside them therefore gives you the dual benefit of copper as well as magnets.
Sometimes the old methods of doing things are the best.
