Why we need magnetism

It has been known for use that certain animals and insects respond to magnetism – bees being the most obvious examples. However for years it was believed that human beings had no magnetic sensory equipment. But recently research at Caltech using highly sensitive equipment has detected magnetic material in the human brain that closely resembles what has already been found in magneto-sensitive animals. The material in question consist of sub-micron particles. Indeed the Caltech estimate of their size is about 100 Angstrom units (i.e. ten nanometers). This size is comparable to the circuit lines on the most advanced of today’s silicon chips!

Clearly this discover heralds a great advance in our understanding of the effects of magnetism on human beings. It is becoming increasingly clear that we are no different to other animals when it comes to these effects.

But the earth’s magnetic field is diminishing. It has dropped by 50% since the year 1500 and continues to lose about five percent of its strength every century. Some people predict that within the next 2000 years, the field will either vanish or reverse itself. The latter is more likely as we know from the geological fossil record that earth’s polarity reverses every half million years or so. But the possibility that it will simply vanish cannot be ruled out.

Japanese biomedical expert Kyoichi Nakagawa claims that there is such a thing as Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome (MFDS) which is caused by this reduction in earth’s magnetic field, coupled with the fact that many people now live in high-rise accommodation where they are further from the earth’s magnetic field. Worse still, he argues that symptoms of MFDS can be confused  with symptoms of other ailments, making it harder to detect.

In a paper published in the Japan Medical Journal (No. 2745 December 4th, 1976), DR. Nakagawa argued that not only was the phenomenon well-established but that the cure was also relatively straightforward: Magnetic jewelry. The question – magnetic bracelets do they work – will draw different answers from different people, but Dr. Nakagawa has no doubts.

At the time of his paper, he suggested that men might want to wear such items at night to avoid embarrassment. But that was in 1976 and in a relatively patriarchal society. In the more progressive that world we live in today, there is no reason why magnetic bracelets for men should be a source of embarrassment and both sexes should be comfortable wearing titanium magnetic bracelets or for younger people trendy silicone magnetic bracelets. For women, the colourful hematite bracelets are another alternative.

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 Arthritis-Relief.co.uk, 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.
