How Do Magnets Work To Heal The Body & Ease Pain?
At the moment, the scientific and medical community is beginning to take far greater interest in magnetic therapy and other forms of alternative medicine and complementary health.
It is becoming more and more apparent that the human body is not based simply on biochemical reactions, but also electro-magnetic interactions.
A common misperception is that magnetic therapy attracts the iron in blood. This is not correct. The iron in hemoglobin is in a chemically-bound state. It's not magnetically-sensitive.
Biomedical research explains that the vast majority of the biological chemicals within our bodies are actually electro-chemical ions. They have either positive or negative charges, and produce electro-magnetic fields.
The electrical signals produced by nerves are the most well known example of how the body uses electro-chemical ions. The careful balance of positive and negative ions in and around nerves maintains a slightly negative charge. When triggered, the balance of ions shifts, and becomes more positive. This sends a pain signal to the brain.
Over decades, research has discovered that all physical and behavioral functions are controlled by electro-magnetic fields produced by ions. The balance and movement of different ions signals and regulates different biological processes. And most fascinating of all is the discovery that these ions can be influenced by external magnetic forces.
Studies have provided indisputable evidence that negative magnetic fields actually constrict and dilate the walls of capillary blood vessels. This response assists the body with regulating blood circulation.
Capillaries constrict to reduce blood flow near areas of injury and trauma, decreasing swelling and pain. When swelling is removed, capillaries then dilate to increase blood flow. This carries oxygen and nutrients more efficiently to speed up cellular repair.
Negative magnetic fields enhance the body's ability to quickly adapt and regulate these biological responses. This leads to greater pain relief and faster healing.
