Magnet therapy, magnetic therapy, or magnetotherapy is an alternative medicine practice involving the use of static magnetic fields.
Subjecting certain parts of the body to magnetostatic fields produced by permanent magnets has beneficial health effects.
Magnetotherapy could be defined as the treatment of illness or health conditions using magnetic current, and it has been extensively researched and the physiology of its benefits has been widely documented throughout time, also.
All life forms have developed under the influence of earth’s geomagnetic field. Although this field is relatively small, it plays a major role in many bodily functions. All tissues of the body and nervous system carry electromagnetic charges. These in turn, react to magnetic fields. Cell regulation is governed by electromagnetic currents of the body.
The body itself creates a magnetic field (called biomagnetism) which can be measured by sensitive magnetometers.
In disease states these body electromagnetic potentials are altered and again are measurable. The effects of magnetics on the body are called magnetobiology.
In fact, magnets have been used for healing purposes for thousands of years. The term “magnet” comes from Magnesia, a province in Asia Minor, where ancient Greeks discovered the rock known as Magnetite, that attracted ferrous material.
Greeks and Chinese recorded the use of this mineral in their medical literature hundreds of years ago, as proof that medical use of magnets has been reported throughout the ages, and recently, Magnetotherapy has been the subject of worldwide interest.
Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome
Many of us have heard of Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome. It is the name given to a host of symptoms that arise when a person has limited exposure to the Earth’s natural magnetic field.
But how can that be possible? Other than astronauts, we can’t leave the Earth, right?
Physiologists have determined that we receive about a third of our energy from external sources, like the Earth’s magnetic field.
Japanese expert Dr. Kyoichi Nakagawa, M.D. believes that our exposure to the Earth’s magnetic field is reduced by the amount of time we spend inside shielding of steel framed buildings and cars, and that this may interfere with our health.
The effects of Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome can include headaches, stiffness in the muscles, insomnia, constipation, and fatigue. Long term deficiency can result in disease, reduce our ability to heal, and leave us more susceptible to microorganisms (bacteria and viruses) and toxins in our environment.
Engineer José Fernando Guerrero, from Mexico City and a Mérida resident for the last 9 years, explains: “Magnetic therapy and magnetic products are magnetic supplements to improve our exposure to natural magnetic fields, basically restoring the proper balance of your body using magnets”.
“So, if you want to know more about the benefits of our magnetic therapy to improve our health, come to the talk this coming Saturday July 15th, at Semilla Yoga, a Yoga Center located on Calle 15 # 210, Col. Garcia Ginerés. The talk is called “Magnetotherapy, how can it help you?” and will start at 11 AM.”
