What is Magnet Therapy?

Magnet Therapy has been used for more than 2,000 years. Healers in both Asia and Europe often used magnets to help treat various illnesses. Magnet therapy was created around the idea that the human body is surrounded by an electromagnetic field, also known as a bio-energetic field. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists describe these electro-magnetic fields as “energy fields” that surround a part of the human body. Magnet Therapy is meant to stimulate the bioenergetic field in order to cure or minimize an ailment.

Our blood contains about 4% Iron, which is why our bodies create the electrical impulse that generates these bioenergetics fields. When an individual is in pain, they can place the negative side of a magnet (or strap on a magnet therapy product), the magnet attracts iron in the blood, which draws fresh oxygenated blood and positive energy to the effected area. Magnets also help counteract the acidity found in the body caused by illness. The fresh oxygenated blood and removal of acidity helps accelerate the body’s ability to fully heal. This, in turn, increases healing and recovery time.
