The science of electromagnetism is quite strange, and therapists say that exposing certain parts of the body to magnetostatic fields shows healing effects. Magnetic jewelry is available in the form of rings, bracelets, pendants, anklets, chains, earrings, necklaces, etc. Therapeutic jewelry has become popular among people for its health benefits as well as for its unique style. However, you should consult your health care practitioner before wearing it, as wrong position of the jewelry might show adverse effects.
Today, magnetic accessories are widely used as a replacement for painkillers and blood pressure medication. The theory behind its working, although correct, requires certain conclusive proof.
▶ The magnetic field is also known to have a positive effect on chronic conditions, like, cell degeneration and tissue inflammation. It reduces the pain associated with such degenerative diseases.
▶ Magnetic healing jewelry is also worn by people suffering from insomnia and depression. It has the ability to calm down one's mind and induce sleep and relaxation.
▶ Magnetic healing jewelry increases the rate of circulation that can flush away toxins from the body. This includes elimination of excessive calcium deposits from certain areas of the body and hence, helps in curing the ailment.
▶ People often wear magnetic jewelry for vitality and gaining physical energy. This happens because the rate of the flow of oxygen to the tissues and cells is enhanced by wearing the jewelry for a certain period of time.
▶ Flushing out toxins from the body makes one look and feel younger. Thus, people like to wear magnetic bracelets for a youthful, younger look.
Magnetic jewelry has certain properties that help to alleviate health complications. Ideally, the body part that has been diagnosed with an ailment, is exposed to the accessory (also known as the reflexology point), so that it is subjected to the electromagnetic field. This process is known as magnetic therapy.
A permanent static magnet is used for creating the electromagnetic field. The effectiveness of the accessories depends upon certain factors - the penetrating ability of the magnet, the strength, polarity, and the size of the magnet.
There are two principles that work behind the therapeutic cause of magnetic jewelry. The first is increase in rate of blood circulation when the iron in the blood is magnetized. This leads to elevation in the level of oxygen. The magnetic field created through this, might also lead to enhancement of the level of endomorphins produced inside the body, which act as natural painkillers. They also repel the charged ions in the blood, thereby increasing circulation of the blood inside the arteries.
The working of magnetic jewelry is associated with the science of magnetic poles. The North pole of the magnet or the positive end has a relaxing and calming effect on the body while the South pole or the negative end of the magnet is known to have an activating and stimulating effect on the body. As a whole, it ultimately leads to reducing inflammation, pain, and healing body ailments.
People with pacemakers should not wear magnetic jewelry. Pregnant women are also advised to not wear any kind of magnetic accessories. Take your therapist's advice before opting for these jewelry items to prevent their negative effects.
