The blood would have better circulation, which would allow more oxygenated cells to flow in the body. This could result into better sleep, clearer mental focus and activity, reduce inflammation and lessen or totally remove pain. According to Arthritis Foundation, arthritis is one of the major health problems and leading causes of disability for Americans who are aged fifteen and above. By applying magnets on the surface of the affected area, the magnetic field relaxes the capillary walls of the body s cells resulting to increase blood flow to that part of the body and at the same time prevents the flow of liquids outside the cells which help control the pain. Some also claims that the same magnetic field disrupts muscle contractions preventing muscle spasms to occur. But whatever the reason is, stress effects could be serious without management. There are different studies showing that stress could weaken your immune system, high blood pressure, anxiety, heart diseases and even in some cases, cancer. Alternative methods like magnet therapy are among the popular choices for reducing stress. One of the several studies conducted on magnetic therapy is that of the University of Virginia. In their study, patients were divided into groups. The first group received fake magnet, the second group continued with their original treatment methods. The third group exposed their entire body to a uniform magnetic field. It could also be adapted to help treat bowel disorders. However, when using magnetic healing for treating disorders like bowel problems, it is still best to consult your doctor. Magnetic healing is not intended to replace recommended and doctor approved treatment. But it could be used to enhance positive results. The magnet s South and North poles have different applications as well. One thing you should remember is that the magnet s north pole is magnetically negative while the south is magnetically positive. You should use the north pole for body infections, alleviate pains from menstrual cycles, inflammations, for cold and accompanying symptoms and for scar tissue healing.
