A permanent magnet is a magnet that remains magnetized. It is a static (stationary) magnet that creates a static magnetic field.
A temporary magnet is one that loses its memory of previous magnetizations. A good example of this is magnetized hematite. Hematite, in its natural state, is not magnetic. However, man frequently magnetizes hematite to utilize it in magnetic jewelry. When a temporary magnet loses its magnetic properties, the therapeutic value becomes less or possibly lost.
Permanent magnets occur naturally in some rocks, particularly Magnetite (Lodestone) but are now more commonly manufactured.
Magnetite is the most magnetic of all the naturally occurring minerals on Earth. Magnetic jewelry made with Magnetite beads is a much better choice for therapy. Magnetite will not lose its magnetism. Due to its positive and negative charge, Magnetite offers the benefits of Magnet Therapy and is a perfect choice for assisting the body to balance and self-heal.
By adding rare earth or other trace metals to iron it is possible for manufacturers to produce magnets that are much smaller and more powerful. Neodymium magnets are an excellent example. A neodymium magnet is the strongest permanent biomagnet (healing magnet) available; it is also the most affordable.
There are other alloys that retain their magnetic properties, which make very good permanent biomagnets. Most commonly used are the ferrites – ceramic-like materials composed of iron oxides combined with nickel, cobalt, barium or other materials. Many manufactures use the terms ferrite and ceramic interchangeably. A ferrite mixture can be combined with plastic, rubber or other pliable materials to make flexible biomagnets, which easily wrap around body parts.
There are many different types of magnetic therapy jewelry to choose from. Back in 2007 when Natural Magnetism was founded, we chose to use Magnetite beads, instead of magnetized Hematite, when making our handcrafted magnetic jewelry. There is no concern of Magnetite jewelry loosing its magnetism.
Neodymium magnets of various sizes and shapes can be utilized to make magnetic jewelry. When making neodymium magnetic jewelry, no beading wire is needed, the magnets are held together by their own magnetism.
By avoiding temporary magnets, you can gain the most benefit from magnetic therapy and not have to worry about your biomagnets losing their magnetism. This holistic remedy can assist you to achieve holistic health.
