Who can benefit from the use of magnets?

People with chronic back pain report obtaining significant relief by sleeping on magnetic mattress pads and using magnetic seat cushions. Tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome and other tendon or ligament problems may heal faster when wrapped in magnetic bandages or magnets are applied to the area. In some hospitals, powerful electromagnetics are used to speed healing of broken bones. Regular use of magnets may even help prevent asthma and relieve headaches. The benefits of magnetic therapy are often apparent within the first hour of treatment, sometimes three or four days of steady treatment are required.

Other conditions that may benefit from the use of magnets include arthritis, gout, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and insomnia, to name a few.

How do magnets work?

PAIN RELIEF is the most common use of magnets. It is not entirely understood just how magnets work. Some theories suggest they may assist the normal electric circuits in the body and may disrupt the processing of pain signals in the brain. Magnets may increase the capillary blood flow which may help flush lactic acid and other inflammatory agents that build up in the tissue. This may help to relieve pain and inflammation. The blood supply also carries oxygen which may be helpful in relaxing muscles and relieving cramps and spasms which are oxygen starved. This is the same reason massage is often used to loosen muscles in spasm; to allow blood to flow and deliver oxygen necessary to terminate the spasm.

Are there any negative side effects to using therapeutic magnets?

Absolutely none! Magnet therapy is a natural alternative to toxic pain relieving drugs. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Can magnets be used by anyone?

Magnets are safe for use by most people with the exception of people who have pacemakers, insulin pumps or other automated drug delivery stents or devices. Since studies have never been done on pregnant women, we advice women to hold off on using magnets while pregnant.

How long will it take for me to feel a difference when using the magnets?

There are multiple factors that determine the results you may experience when using magnetic products. Every person is unique in their response to magnets and each condition may differ from individual to individual. Research indicates 88% of people respond favorably to magnets.

How long can I wear the magnets?

Since there are no negative side effects it is not harmful to use them continuously, if needed. The best rule of thumb is if you are having pain, wear the magnets. If the pain subsides, remove them. If the pain returns, put them back on. If you sleep on the magnetic pad 365 days a year, they may start to lose their effectiveness. Therefore n the case of magnetic mattress pads it is generally advised that you remove the pad from your bed for a few days each month just so the body doesn't acclimate to the magnets.

How do I decide which products are best for me?

Magnetic mattress pads are ideal for overall health benefits as well as chronic pain and insomnia.
