So, have you ever wondered “How does magnetic therapy work?” Not all experts agree as to how this natural therapy works. There are many different theories and beliefs within the field of magnet therapy.
Although we have gained a lot of knowledge about magnets and their use as an alternative therapy, we still have much to learn. Scientist and researchers are hard at work to answer this question.
What we do know is that magnets work by emitting a static magnetic field much like that of the Earth’s magnetic field, which is essential for life and is necessary for us to maintain optimal health. The energy field created by biomagnets (healing magnets) assists the physical body and the subtle energy body, or biomagnetism, to balance and heal.
In 1954, Linus Pauling won the Nobel Peace Prize in Chemistry for discovering the magnetic properties of hemoglobin, which are the portion of the red blood cells that contains iron.
The most common theory suggests that the magnetic field attracts the iron in the hemoglobin which increases the blood flow circulation. This increase in circulation increases the amount of oxygen available to the body, boosts the immune system and decreases toxins. As a result, pain and inflammation are reduced and the body’s own healing process is facilitated and accelerated.
Perhaps we should take after the ancients, who could only observe this magnetic phenomenon. By accepting the phenomenon, and not getting hung up on the how and the why, they have benefited from this holistic remedy for more than four thousand years. Learn more about the history of magnetic therapy.
Meanwhile, modern science is still attempting to explain how and why magnets work. Thankfully, magnetic therapy is no different than using electricity or driving a car; you don’t have to know how it works to reap the benefits.
