Exposed The Shocking Truth About Magnets Why Most Magnetic Therapy Fails To WorkÖ(Part 2)

Louise: What should people learn from this?

Dee: The most important lesson to take from this is always wear magnets directly over your area of pain and by doing this you will give yourself the best chance of feeling a benefit. Also people should understand that just because they have tried one type of magnet and it didnít work for them not to dismiss magnetic therapy altogether because there is a very strong possibility that they were not using the correct magnet for their needs. The vast majority of the 2076 people who did not benefit from wearing the magnetic bracelet would have benefited had they used the correct device for their specific pain area.

Louise: What other common reasons are there why users donít benefit from magnetic therapy?

Dee: When trying to establish why someone has not benefited from magnetic therapy the second thing we look at is are they using the correct strength of magnet?

Not all magnets are created equal. Making sure that you have the correct strength of magnet will be the difference between relieving pain gaining absolutely no benefit whatsoever. Itís absolutely vital for any one who is currently using or contemplating using magnets to thoroughly understand what is the appropriate strength of magnets to use for healing purposes.

A minimum strength per magnet is required to ensure that the magnetic field is powerful enough to penetrate through the skin and into the blood stream. If a magnet does not have a minimum of 800 gauss (the unit of magnetic measurement is called gauss) then it will not penetrate into the skin.

The stronger the magnet the deeper the penetration into the skin and the wider magnetic field, so for more serious ailments and chronic, longstanding conditions such as arthritis for example, stronger magnets are recommended. 1,500-2,000 gauss magnets are considered to be high strength.

For extreme pain and very severe conditions super strength magnets are advocated. These are magnets that have a gauss rating of 3,000 or above. Super strength magnets are rapidly gaining in popularity as they such a deep level of penetration and create a very large magnetic field. Results are more rapid with this strength of magnet. They are recommended for people who suffer with severe pain, for example from fibromyalgia, M.S., M.E. and severe arthritis.

When speaking to people who have not benefited but are wearing magnets over their area of pain we commonly find that they are wearing weak magnets that are less than 800 gauss in strength, or they are wearing an 800 gauss magnet when the severity of their condition warrants a much stronger magnet.

Louise: What do you suggest these people do?

Dee: The advice is always the same. Find out what strength of magnets you require, place the correct strength device directly over or as close as possible to the area of pain and leave it in place 24 hours a day 7 days a week until the pain has gone.

Louise: What other things do people do that could prevent their magnets from working?

Dee: A common mistake is not leaving the magnets in place for long enough. Magnets need to be worn 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The magnets begin to work the moment you first place them on and as you keep them in place day and night it will only be a matter of 3-6 weeks on average before pain relief is felt.

What will happen is, as the magnetic field starts to reduce inflammation (swelling) and increase endorphin (the bodyís own painkillers) levels, to regain mobility and movement. Over a period of days or a few weeks the benefits gradually increase over the next few weeks. As long as the magnets are left in place day and night this process happens in 93% of people, whoa are using the correct device and strength for their pain.

Itís natural to be impatient and we all seem to live in a world of instant gratification, where we want results instantly. With magnetic therapy you must be prepared to have a little patience and wait a short while for the results to become evident. If you take the magnets off after just a day or two then no benefit or relief whatsoever will be felt.

In my opinion if you have had severe pain for many years waiting a few weeks for that pain to be resolved is not too much to ask.

Louise: Why should people use magnets during the night, what extra benefits do the magnets give at night-time?
