Advantages Of Magnetic Therapy For Treating Arthritis

We looked at the secondary symptoms arising from arthritis and how it can be effectively controlled in the post titled Magnetic Therapy For Arthritis Pain Relief. We will now dwell on the advantages of magnetic therapy for treating arthritis.

Tissue stimulation

Magnetic fields can penetrate the joints and stimulate the repairing of tissues giving the body a good chance of slowing down the advance of arthritis. The stimulation of affected tissues also provides pain relief.

Joint Stiffness

Along with relieving pain and helping gain good night’s sleep in a matter of few days of treatment, magnetic therapy gradually helps the joints overcome their stiffness over several weeks of treatment. The joints are strengthened and their range of motion gets better. After this, there can be a lull in the progress.

It is important at this stage to keep up with the magnetic therapy treatment. Though progress will not be rapid as in the early stages, the results are quite amazing after a significant period of time compared to the previous condition of the arthritis sufferer.

Effectiveness of magnetic therapy for arthritis treatment

Magnetic therapy for arthritis treatment is a lengthy process. The best way to counter arthritis through magnetic therapy is when treated in its early stages. This gives the body the best chance of stopping or slowing down the advancement of arthritis.

Early detection and treatment in humans has been known to recover affected joints. Short term controlled studies have shown magnetic therapy treatment to effect improvement in symptoms of knee osteoarthritis.

Magnetic therapy avoids use of powerful pain killers

In cases of advanced arthritis where the cartilage in the joint is eroded and the resulting pain is severe, the only benefit of magnetic therapy in this situation is to help provide drug free arthritis pain relief and avoid the use of strong painkillers.

If the severe condition requires a joint replacement, then magnetic therapy can help in the pre-surgery and post-surgery phases to help reduce the pain and discomfort arising from the surgery.

Supporting treatments

Magnetic therapy has been known to be very effective in treating arthritis when it is used in conjunction with other supporting alternative treatments such as acupuncture.

Difference between magnetic therapy and conventional medicine

With conventional medicine, the biggest benefit is temporary relief from symptoms. The powerful drugs cause other harmful side effects totally irrelevant to the condition being treated causing more problems than anything. They cannot halt the progress of arthritis at the tissue level.

With magnetic fields, they can stimulate the tissues at the structural level thereby slowing down the progress of arthritis. Depending on the individual being treated, the magnetic therapy treatments can be scheduled for fixed number of hours each day at certain frequency fields. Long term steady magnetic therapy treatment on a daily basis can help slow down the advance of arthritis and go on to reverse the arthritic process.

Magnetic Field Characteristics For Sleep Disorders Treatment

The way the human body reacts to magnetic therapy treatment for sleep disorders comes down to the characteristics of the magnetic fields used in the treatment.

The various magnetic field characteristics impacting sleep disorder treatment are:

The frequency of the magnetic field

Electromagnetic devices that allow the frequency to be set at levels below 15 Hz are the closest to simulating brainwave entrainment of sleep level frequencies. The order of frequencies from 3 Hz to 300 Hz are termed extremely low frequency (ELF) radiations.

Higher wave frequencies are known to cause drowsiness in some patients while others become alert when subjected to it. It is best to stimulate the whole body including the head with magnetic therapy treatment before hitting the sack.

The strength of the magnetic field

The strength of the magnetic field is measured in Gauss units and is defined as the iron weight that can be lifted. Gauss is the electromagnetic unit of flux density. A magnet that can lift 1 lb of iron weight is approximately 240 Gauss. If it is 5 lbs, its Gauss equivalent would be in 900 to 1250G. Overall, the strength of the magnet depends on its size, weight and material out of which it is made.

The strength of the magnets depend on the ailment being treated. Chronic ailments like back pain, rheumatoid arthritis etc require powerful magnets of the order of 3000 Gauss.

More sensitive body parts like the ears and eyes can be treated with magnets of the order of 500 Gauss. By rule of thumb, in magnetic therapy, a magnet of at least 500 Gauss strength is needed for treatment of disorders of any kind.

The size of the magnetic field

Apart from the strength of the magnetic field in Gauss, the size of the magnet also plays an important role. The penetration of the magnetic field is vital to magnetic therapy healing and it is a combination of strength and size of the magnet used.

A small sized magnet of order of 15000 Gauss can penetrate only a couple of inches below the affected region. On the other hand, a magnet of larger size but of a moderate order of 1500 Gauss can penetrate the region of treatment completely.

The number and duration of exposures of magnetic field treatments

The number of times the patient is exposed to magnetic field treatment be it on a regular or intermittent basis, it depends entirely on the individual in question and the nature of the ailment being treated.

For sleep problems, local exposures are ideal if costs are an impediment and this can be achieved by use of devices with static magnetic fields or pulsed electromagnetic fields.

If a full body exposure is the preferred mode of magnetic therapy treatment using ELFs, then the entire body is restored to a balanced energy state and sleep problems that are an offshoot of other problems in the body also tend to get alleviated thus providing better sleep at night.

Magnetic therapy products from Woolrest BioMag contain powerful static magnets that help in alleviating sleep disorders to leave you refreshed after a sound night’s sleep to let you meet the challenges of a new day. Take a 60 day risk free trial and find out what a good night’s sleep is all about.

Effects Of Magnetic Fields On The Human Brain

The brain is known to be sensitive to the geomagnetic fields of the earth. A decrease in the earth’s geomagnetic field can increase the chances of sleep paralysis and an increase in the geomagnetic field levels can cause a marked increase in dreams. When you sleep in a direction parallel to the earth’s magnetic force field, it can strengthen sleep.

Absence of the geomagnetic field is known to cause decrease in the duration of sleep periods and inability to enter the third and fourth stages of sleep marked as deep sleep. This has been observed in space missions though the patterns observed observed were not consistent across all astronauts.

Brainwave Entrainment

Brainwave entrainment is the method of making the brainwave frequencies resonate in step with an external vibrating device to make the brain attain a certain brain state. This is based on the presumption of frequency following where the human brain has the potential to change its dormant frequency to correspond to the frequency of the external stimulus.

It is through experiments that the response of the brain can be predicted and this response can change from one stimulus to another. For example, light or sound can make the brain react much more than static magnetic fields.

For one, static magnetic fields cannot simulate brainwave entrainment. Also, the static magnetic fields should have impact of at least 100 Gauss on the brain tissue to impact the area of the brain under the influence of the magnet.

It does not ensure the spreading of the impact to other parts of the brain. The magnet tends to reduce electrical activity in the brain. This can be due to two reasons.

It can be due to reduction in oxygen levels in areas of the brain under the influence of the magnet. It must be remembered that the strength of the magnet decreases with distance from the center of the magnet. So a higher gauss strength is required to create an impact of 100 Gauss on the brain.

Some of the areas of the brain influenced by magnetic fields are:

Hypothalamus

The hypothalamus can be stimulated by electric charges produced by magnetic fields to induce sleep. The hypothalamus controls the circadian rhythms (body clock) and the sleep rhythms.

Brain Stem Stimulation

The stimulation of the brain stem can expand the brain blood vessels.

Brain’s own wave radiations

The brain in its normal state is the origin of its own electromagnetic waves like alpha, delta, theta etc. These waves help in maintenance of ionic concentrations across large areas of the brain.

Improved Well Being And Sleep

Magnetic waves help in reducing depression by increasing slow wave activity and by increasing the 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) or Serotonin secretion. This is a neurotransmitter that contributes to feelings of happiness. An offshoot of this is improved sleep patterns.

REM Sleep

The onset of melatonin late after dusk heralds the sleep cycle. Magnetic fields can simulate the effects of light on melatonin secretion. This is similar to the case of patients with sleep deprivation who enter Stage 3 of deep sleep or REM sleep.

Magnetic therapy products from Woolrest BioMag consist of magnets that expose the body uniformly to powerful static magnetic fields throughout the night and help in restoring the body to a balanced energy state through better sleep to face the rigors of a new day.

Effectiveness Of Magnetic Mattress Pads – Scientific Data

A controlled double blinded scientific study was conducted by three hospitals in Japan under the stewardship of Dr. Kauzo Shimodaira to test the efficacy of magnets in magnetic mattress pads.

The study involved 431 patients, 216 males and 215 females. The patients had existing problems of back and neck pain, insomnia and fatigue.

Before commencing the study, the blood pressure, red blood and white blood corpuscle readings were taken.

The study itself used 375 active magnetic mattress pads and 56 placebo magnetic mattress pads without magnets. The study was conducted over a period of one year.

At the end of a year, 301 patients reported positive improvement to their condition while 74 reported no improvements.

Out of the 301 patients who felt positive improvement, 200 could feel the positive effects within three days of starting the treatment.

Statistics Of Experiment Involving Magnetic Mattress Pads

Symptoms Cases No Results Positive Results
Neck and Shoulder Pain 66 19 47
Back Pain 31 6 25
Fatigue 64 11 53
Insomnia 70 11 61

After the one year experiment, the research team tested the patients for any deleterious side effects that may have occurred over the period of study. Readings of patients’ blood pressure, red blood and white blood corpuscles were taken and compared with those taken before the commencement of the experiment.

There were no variations in the readings showing absence of any side effects. There were no visual, hearing and digestion related problems either.

Dr. Shimodaira concluded the study with these words – “The magnetized health mattress is proved to be effective on neck and shoulder pain, back and lower back pain, lower limb pain, insomnia and fatigue and to have no harmful side effects.”

Scientific Merits Of Magnetic Therapy

Though skeptics always like to trash magnetic therapy as an ineffective alternative treatment, the scientific aspects and related merits of magnetic therapy have to be taken into account.

It was in 1954 that Linus Pauling received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of the magnetic properties of hemoglobin in the blood.

He discovered that iron plays an important part in cell metabolism apart from being an active carrier of oxygen. It is clear that iron and about five other electrolytic salts in the human blood stream circulate biomagnetically. Hence magnetic therapy can influence the natural magnetic currents circulating in the human body to its great benefit.

This is why exposure to strong static magnetic fields every night when going to sleep on a magnetic mattress pad or magnetic mattress topper can help in healing of bones, alleviate pain and gain improvement in enzymatic and vascular activities influencing circulation in veins and arteries.

The very electrical nature of cells proves the electromagnetic changes at the cellular level that in turn lead to phsyiological variations thus causing structural regeneration at the tissue level.

Magnetic therapy from Woolrest BioMag in the form of magnetic mattress pads can help alleviate pain and help in bettering the quality of sleep. The magnetic mattress padscome with a 60 day money back satisfaction guarantee . You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying one out.

Chronic Back Pain Related To Lack Of Cellular Oxygen

As chronic back pain in most cases is due to lack of oxygen, the muscles in the lower back area suffer from poor cell oxygenation. They are unable to metabolize waste products like lactic acid.

The reduced levels of oxygen cause a dull throbbing pain over the affected area. If the oxygen deficiency increases, the back muscle spasms can make life miserable.

Each nerve cell and muscle cell in the body requires the right amount of oxygen to function properly. Moreover, the nerves themselves are sensitive to variations in oxygen levels in cells.

The Three Types Of Peripheral Nerves

Motor Nerves

The brain and spinal cord send signals through motor nerves to all the muscles in the body. Motor nerves are closely associated with the day to day physical activities like running, walking or picking objects with fingers. Damage to motor nerves can cause weakness in the muscle, difficulty walking, cramps and spasms.

Sensory Nerves

These nerves send messages from the various muscles in the body back to the spinal cord and brain. These nerves are associated with feelings of heat, cold, sharpness, roughness etc through sensors in the skin and within the body.

Damage to sensory nerves can cause tingling, pain, numbness and high level of sensitivity to touch.

Autonomic Nerves

These nerves control the involuntary or semi-voluntary functions of the body such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion etc. Damage to autonomic nerves causes the heart beat to become slower or faster.

Spells of dizziness even when standing up, sweating excessively or total lack of sweating are some of the symptoms. In addition to this, autonomic nerve damage can cause diarrhea, vomiting, pupil dilation, problems with passing urine etc.

In the next post, we will look at the specific relationship between back pain and oxygen deprivation.

Magnetic therapy products from Woolrest BioMag help in improved blood circulation by exposing local areas of the body to powerful static magnetic fields and reducing inflammation through drug free alternative treatment accompanied by better sleep.
