Magnetic Therapy for Relief and General Wellness

For More Than Twenty Years, Before It Was Even Fashionable, Our Family Has Been Using Magnetic Relief Products

What seems like ions ago, my brother introduced me to magnetic therapy. My first thought was, what in the heck is that, followed by, laughter.

But my Bro had the last laugh after he demonstrated what magnetic energy could do for my body.
He repeatedly spun the magnetics on a small handheld item called a MagDuo for about ten minutes, in the air, around my body, and up and down my arms.
But before doing that he had me stand with my arms out and asked me to reach my arm back as far as I could. After the air around my body had increased magnetic energy, he asked me to try to reach my arm back again, and I couldn't believe that my arm went further back by what seemed like an entire foot! Essentially it increased my range of motion. I can see why golfers love it!

Thus began my learning about the benefits of magnetic therapy.

Of course, I'm not a doctor, and the research I undertook was from reading and talking to others who used the products. What I learned about magnetic therapy was amazing.

What Magnetic Therapy is and What it Isn't
  1. It's not a cure for anything
  2. It's wellness therapy
  3. It provides relief to an area, or the body in general
  4. The results are similar to Acupuncture
  5. Magnetic energy apparently clears your Meridians
  6. It's said to increases blood flow to an area
  7. It's considered prevention as well
  8. Don't put magnets on a fresh injury (As an example, a sprain), Ice is always best first to draw blood away from the area, then about 24 to 48 hours later you could consider applying magnetics. Remember magnetics draw blood to an area, and you don't want blood drawn to an area that has a fresh injury. 
  9. All Magnetic Products are not created equal. The Magnetic Gauss (the measurement of magnetic flux density - magnetic induction) matters. Be sure to research the company selling the product to ensure they're not fly-by-night. We use Nikken magnetic products and have never used another brand or type. Nikken has been in business since about 1989.

What I find hilarious about all of this is that we've been using Magnets since the late 1990's and back then I remember receiving many snarky-giggling comments from nay-sayers, and today it's basically accepted.

Ha figures.

To understand how magnetics work on our body, it's best to watch the above video.

The Magnetic Products We've Used for Over 20 Years
  1. Magnetic Insoles for shoes
  2. Every bedroom in our home has a Magnetic Mattress Pad or Magnetic Blanket, or a Ceramic Reflecting Blanket on the bed
  3. We have magnetic wraps for elbows, wrists and knees
  4. I've worn a magnetic necklace for over 20 years (I've gone through 3 of them - it relieves my neck tension)
There are many additional magnetic relief products available that I couldn't possibly list here. Some are, bracelets, pet pads, sleeping masks (that mask is awesome!)… there's so many more. If you do a search you'll see the list is practically endless.

For me, I feel as though magnetics slowed down the onset of an auto-immune condition that I was diagnosed with in 2016. By slowed down, I mean, it's quite possible I could have had this condition show up ten years earlier based on the extensive history of auto-immune diseases in my family.

So many of my family members have been struggling with a variety of auto-immune diseases for decades, long before I had the issue show up. My problems didn't show until my late 50's, so in that sense I was lucky. But I want to stress that there's no hard proof to support my belief that magnetics slowed the onset, it's just something I feel.

There's a saying I heard about using magnets: "May you never know what you prevented".

Of course, you should always consult a doctor before starting a new therapy. However, don't be surprised if your doctor isn't into magnetic therapy. Many aren't, although I do believe there's a paradigm shift coming.

Reviewing Custom Magnets and Buttons

Zazzle is a great way to make customized buttons and magnets.  There are so many fun ways to use these magnets and it is fairly inexpensive to create your own.

 

A Fun Memento from a Trip

It is always fun to have a small memento from a trip, but sometimes the items in the gift shops can be really costly.  With Zazzle you can create your own personalized souvenir using your photographs and a bit of creativity on Zazzle.  I created the button below by importing my photo into Zazzle and then adding some text on the design.  The photo is of a lighthouse in Michigan.  We found it at the end of a penisula near Traverse City.

Recipe Magnets

Do you have a favorite recipe that you still need to look at the instructions?  Create a recipe magnet and use it to stick the recipe on your refrigerator for easy access when cooking or baking.  I have several of these recipe magnets and they sure are handy.  No more worries about getting the paper recipe spotted with food stains and the recipe is always at eye level.  Here is one I created for a favorite microwave applecrisp.

Celebrating a Special Event

Buttons and Magnets are great way to celebrate special events. I have used them for conventions at church by putting the theme of the convention on a button. They also work great for birthdays, anniversaries, themed parties and other milestones. Here is a button I made for my granddaughters birthday. It can be customized by changing the name or age.

Magnets

Magnets come in either a round or square shape.  You can order them in 5 different sizes ranging from 1.25 inches to 3 inches.  The are printed on 100% recyled paper and are covered with a scratch and UV resistant Mylar.  One really nice feature is that there is no minimum order, so if you want just one for yourself you are in luck.  There are discounts for larger orders too.

Buttons

Buttons also come in both a round and square shape and are printed on 100% recycled paper and are covered with a scratch and UV resistant  Mylar.  The buttons come in 5 sizes from 1.25 inches all the way up to a huge 6 inch button.  There is no minimum order for buttons and there is a discount on orders of 10 or more buttons.
