Angela Drewett had suffered from aches and pains in her joints ever since her teens. What doctors diagnosed as rheumatism had affected various parts of her body over the years.
Five years ago, when Angela was 62, her condition started to deteriorate. The pain in her spine, knees, hands and neck worsened to such an extent that she was barely able to walk 50 yards at a time.
‘I was in constant agony and had to rely on painkillers to get me through each day’, says Angela. Earlier this year, Angela bought a magnetic bracelet that, it was claimed, could help relieve conditions such as arthritis and migraine.
Although sceptical at first, Angela now believes the bracelet has given her a new lease of life.
Some people find the concept that something as simple as a magnet can help relieve pain and discomfort difficult to accept. However, several scientific studies support the use of magnets in the treatment of medical conditions, and there are countless reports of people who have found that magnetic therapy has relieved a variety of conditions, including arthritis, menstrual cramps and headaches.
It is still not known for sure how magnets work, but what is known is that magnetic fields exist in all living things. Some scientists believe that an imbalance in the body’s magnetic field can lead to pain and disease.
It is thought that magnets may help rebalance the body’s energy, thereby restoring health and relieving pain.
There is also some evidence that magnets improve blood flow, helping with the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues.
Angela spotted an advertisement for magnetic bracelets in a magazine last February.
‘I admit I was doubtful whether the bracelet would have any effect’, she says, ‘but because it came with a money back guarantee, I decided I had nothing to lose by trying it.
’In fact, Angela was amazed at the results. Just a week after first putting on the bracelet, Angela’s pain began to lift and her friends commented on just how much more freely she seemed to be moving.
Over the next few weeks Angela’s discomfort continued to ease and she was able to resume many activities that were previously beyond her.
‘Now I can do much more in and out of my home, and I no longer need to take painkillers during the day,’ she says. ‘Many of my friends now use magnetic jewellery and have felt the difference. It may not work for everyone, but I urge people to give it a try.’
