Brief Review On Magnet Therapy For thousands of years, magnet therapy (also known as magnetic therapy) had been known to be a safe, simple, effective and economical form of alternative therapy. From a scientific point of view, magnets had been proven to help the body to regain its self-healing electromagnetic balance naturally. 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. And more and more medical professionals are jumping on board and recommending the therapy as a complementary form of treatment. There are different kinds of magnets used in this kind of therapy. Those horse-shoe magnets that we often see in comics and cartoons are useless for magnet therapies. The most common magnets for therapeutic use are the flat ceramic magnets or at best the neodymium magnets. Gall bladder In gall bladder problems, the left leg is usually pulled into the hip socket by tight muscles. The south-pointing pole applied to the hip can correct it. While the magnet is in place, gently pull the shortened leg at the ankle until both ankles are of the same length. (The same can be done on the right leg if there is an imbalance. There were noted reductions of pain and other discomforts in cases of arthritis, post-operations headaches (migraine) and pre-operations insomnia. It was also found to provide pain relief in sports-related foot injuries, fibromyalgia and relief in sinus problems. Precautions As usual, medical experts strictly prohibits the use of magnet therapy on people who are pregnant, wearing pacemakers, defibrillator, insulin pump or some other electronic medical device. In turn, the blood vessels widen and helps accelerate the healing process. The process allows more blood to pass through the capillaries and improves the blood flow. This natural movement takes away the toxins in the system and brings in nutrient-rich blood to the injured area. The improved blood flow and the fluid exchange in the injured tissue help reduce discomfort and inflammation.
