The Power of Magnets
After years of suffering with back pain, a friend of mine suggested I stick a magnet in my knickers, and I’ve never looked back.
Up until then I didn’t know anything about magnets, apart from them being handy for holding take-away menus to the front of my fridge. I mentioned it to friends, slightly worried they were going to think that it was some new fad I’d been conned into buying, but I was surprised to find out that I wasn’t the first to discover this amazing new innovation.
When I say new, I’ve since found out that the use of magnets for pain relief has been around for thousands of years. With ancient things in mind, I thought it was time my cynical husband gave it a go for his painful frozen shoulder that he’d had for years. With a trendy new bracelet he didn’t care if it was going to work or not, and told me he hadn’t notice any difference, but he whinges less these days so I’m certainly suffering less.
A female friend of mine had a poor pup who had terrible arthritis, and was close to getting the ‘goodbye’ injection to put him out of his misery. Just before making the dreadful decision, someone recommended to her to try a magnetic collar, and what happened next was unbelievable.
Before wearing the magnetic collar he could hardly walk, stiff from the arthritis, but within a day of having it on there was a definite improvement. Within a week he was like a puppy again. One thing you can count on in life is your dog not lying to you. They are probably not thinking ‘I’ve got a new collar, I’d better liven up my act!’, so maybe the magnets were actually working. He wasn’t cured of arthritis, but it made a massive improvement for the last few years of his life.
Not long after this, my friend was hitting menopause and dreaded taking HRT (hormone replacement therapy), so was looking for natural alternatives. After the astounding effect they had on her dog, she thought she’d give the magnets a go herself. She felt an increase in energy, an improvement in her mood swings, and she slept better every night.
Obviously, this therapy doesn’t work for everyone, but from personal experience it brings a new lease of life, and to some people it makes certain pain disappear. Magnetic therapy is non-invasive, and although not necessarily life changing, it does improve lives.
Having been aware of magnets a few years, and discovering first-hand the positive effects of them, in the last 18 months I have set up a business sharing the power of magnets. They are non-invasive, inexpensive, and something that can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere, anytime.
