Permanent magnets are potent, safe, reusable healing tools. Some practitioners say that magnet therapy helps to prolong the beneficial effects of other natural therapies, such as manipulation and acupuncture. I have personally benefited from the use of magnetic therapy for pain.
This holistic remedy is natural, safe, non-invasive, inexpensive and easy to use on your own. Magnetic therapy does not come with the negative side effects often caused by medications. It is a natural tool that can be used to assist you in obtaining holistic health.
Magnet therapy is a complimentary therapy. It can compliment modern medicine and alternative therapies alike. This natural therapy is not meant to replace proper medical care. You should see a qualified healthcare professional if you have acute or persistent undiagnosed pain. Such pain may indicate a serious problem that requires more than magnet therapy.
Given what is known today about static magnets, most experts agree that self therapy is safe, except in the following situations – epilepsy, pregnancy, children under the age of two, internal bleeding, bleeding wounds, blood thinner usage such as Coumadin or with implanted devises such as pacemakers and insulin pumps. Always check with your healthcare professional.
When applying biomagnets (healing magnets) avoid the area of implanted metal plates, screws and so forth. With the recent use of titanium, this is may not be of concern; to be sure check with you healthcare professional.
