    Last year a study found that magnetic insoles seemed to provide significant relief to diabetics who suffered from a painful condition called peripheral neuropathy. The study consisted of a test that measures how well nerves are conducting signals from the feet and the application of magnet insoles for those that showed positive in the test.

    The results for Jeanette Castner, a diabetic, show that her diabetes has, in fact damaged those nerves. In her case it has made her feet extremely numb, which is more serious than it sounds. The problem is called diabetic neuropathy and it is a major disabler of people with diabetes. According to Dr Michael Weintraub of the New York Medical College, “you can have numbness and tingling like your feet are asleep, or numb or tingling or burning to the point where you can’t even put pressure on them.”

    But Castner and the other diabetics in the study have gotten significant relief from their neuropathy by using an ancient alternative treatment- magnets.
Nineteen patients in a well-designed scientific study, published in the American Journal of pain management, wore magnetic insoles 24 hours a day . They then rated their pain twice a day for four months. The trick was making sure that the pain relief was really due to the magnets.

    Dr Weintraub designed the study so one foot had a placebo insole and the other a real magnetic insole. After one month they switched insoles so the placebo was on the opposite foot and the magnet on the other foot.
    The results showed that the foot with the real magnetic insole showed significant improvements in the neuropathy in 90% of the diabetics.

    As to why magnets seem to work, there are a few theories, but the bottom line is that no one really knows. To better understand the benefits of magnet therapy Dr Weintraub is setting up a national multi centre trail, but in the mean time there are no reasons not to give magnets a try.
