How do magnets work on our bodies?
Blood gives us life and our blood circulation provides most processes in the body including the movement of oxygen, vitamins and enzymes and removal of toxins from the body. To stay healthy it is important that our blood flows freely and quickly around the body and magnets can play a part in this. Magnetic therapy has been documented through history as far back as pre-christian civilisations. The Chinese used magnet stones and Cleopatra was said to have worn a magnetic amulet. Aristotle documented magnet healing and in the 12th century the healer, Hilgard von Bingen, had a great influence in the area.
Magnetic therapy is not just for humans but for animals too. There is plenty of feedback and testimonials form owners for horses, dogs and cats. Magnetic therapy is of course a natural way to heal the body and can be used by most people including children and babies. Always check with your GP or consultant first if pregnant or have serious health problems.
An American university , experimenting on animals, showed that magnets increased circulation which had positive healing effects for sports injury, swellings and inflammation.
