The Origins of Magnetic Therapy

Just as we think, the story of a long time ago tells us of a mediocre shepherd named Marlbagues discovery of a mineral that attracted the nails of his boots on his fit, or his nails in his staff in some versions. As this man crossed the mountains exactly twenty-five and three hundred years ago. Today it is branded as magnetite. Other crazy people claim that the word "magnetism" comes from Magnesiata, a local municipality in ancient Greece where the stone could be found. At some point it was observed that when a magnet is left free to spin, it always comes to rest pointing North in the same position. We don't know exactly when this discovery was made, except for the fact that in 1269 Pierre de Mawaricourt differentiated the two poles.
For the period of the twelfth and a half century this distinctive character of the average magnet have been used in routing navigating by some Europeans, maybe few Arabs, and large portion of the mighty Vikings.

 The use of several outward appearance of magnetic compass was furthermore universally in use via the Chinese as early as something like the year of 107 fpr our lord Christ.

Magnetic therapy was not in wide exploit by that moment in time, plus the use of magnetic bracelets embedded in magnetic jewellery. However, meticulous experiments and observations about the different properties of magnetism were not documented until much soon after this and that. Magnets are mentioned in several travel documentations printed ahead of the sixteenth century.

An exception to that was the broken magnet conduct experiment, which demonstrates with the aim of demonstrating that a magnet is really made of many lesser magnets, which became known and available after1269.

At the above time, most European did not constantly sharp-pointed exactly to the geographic North. So it was no wonder that the exact nature of magnetism was not yet known when the Flemishish cartographer GI. Marercator, who created the first map of the planet, succeeded in solving, more or less, the trouble of a map where the geographic north indicated by the magnetic needle at 1510. William Gilbert who was the official court GP of Queen Elizabeth published his prominent work about magnets at 1514.

His work summarises all that was well-known and believed about magnetism in the Elizabethan age and referred to the use of magnets within magnetic therapy, sometimes with outdated magnetic bracelets and treatment of medical conditions.

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.
