The effect of magnetism on the nervous system

The nervous system, like other parts and attributes of the human body is subject to the effects of magnetism and magnetic products. That is the view of such researchers as G. W.  de la Warr, Dr. Albert Roy Davis and Dr. A. K. Bhattacharya of India.

The Central Nervous System is comprised of nerve cells known as neurons which generate energy that can be transmitted through their outer walls along something called an axon. If one thinks of the neurons as miniature batteries, then the axons are like the electrical wiring that they use to carry the current. The wiring analogy is very appropriate because axons are covered by an outer layer called myelin, which acts like the insulation layer on an electrical wire. The myelin also increases the speed at which the impulses are conveyed along the axon.

When a neurons is activated, it transmits a signal to the central nervous system. The connections that link the neurons are called synapses and there are something like ten trillion synapses in the brain and spinal cord. This makes the layout of the central nervous system far more complicated than the national grid that brings electricity into people’s homes in even the largest developed countries.

Neurons can be activated by the sense that we call touch. But this sense is actually several things that tend to be lumped together. Touch, temperature, body position, pain and the state of muscles all convey signals to the nervous system that the person then “feels”. It is the sheer complexity of the nervous system that makes it possible for it to convey such precise information. Most of us can distinguish the touch of a sharp object from a blunt one because of this precision. And we can tell where are limbs are with our eyes shut for the same reason.

These signals – which ultimately reach the brain – are based on electrochemical impulses. Specifically, nerve cells carry a negative charge on the inside and a positive charge on the outside. When a nerve is stimulated, the positive charge is increased allowing positive ions to enter the cell. This charge  is in turn passed on to the next cell, until ultimately it reaches the brain.

Because of the relationship between electricity and magnetism it is possible to use the negative pole of a magnet to reduce the positive charge at the surface of a nerve ending and thus decrease its capacity to transmit pain. This turns the magnet into a kind of local anaesthetic, although it does not remove pain in its entirety.

Thus it can be seen that magnetic products have a theoretical as well as a practical basis for palliative therapy. Magnetic therapy pain relief is therefore not a purely psychosomatic effect but rather the result of the underlying physics and physiology of the human body.

Treating Arthritis with Magnetic Bracelets

It appears to us from the feedback we are receiving from our customers that they proud supporters of using the unique benefits of treating arthritis with magnetic bracelets. Many others, mostly people that never used magnetic therapy, remain sceptic.

For this reason, it has become an issue of controversy between those that did not try magnetic therapy and do not believe in it, and those who actually used magnetic therapy.  

And so it remains a hot topic in the world of medicine today.

With an estimated 8.5 million people in the UK suffering from different forms of arthritis, the suggestion that the inflammation that arthritis brings can be eased with something as simple as magnetic bracelet, it is no wonder that it is such a debated issue.

According to, there has been in recent years, and continues to be large volume of research conducted about using magnets to eliminate arthritic ailments which has demonstrated that magnetic bracelets, can be an effective method of pain management.

In the United States alone it is reported that as many as one in three adults are being affected by different forms of arthritis, with more than 70 million Americans suffering from the disease.

The Arthritis and Glucosamine Resource Centre reported that in a research carried out to whether or not magnetic bracelets are effective in fighting arthritis pain which questioned whether a ‘placebo effect’ of wearing a magnetic bracelet is the cause for arthritis patients endorsing that the bracelets create pain relief, it was concluded that arthritis patients should embrace magnetic bracelets with an open mind.
