What is magnetotherapy?
Magnetic field therapy is a form of therapy that activates the body's self-healing powers . Even ancient times knew about the healing effects of magnets . For example, three centuries before Christ, Aristotle described how the application of magnets or stones containing magnets healed wounds and relieved pain .
Magnetic field therapy is suitable for treating a wide range of complaints and disease symptoms , such as sciatica, migraines, osteoporosis, rheumatism, diabetes mellitus, neurodermatitis, psoriasis, tumors, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular diseases and more .
Where is magnetic field therapy used?
In principle, magnet therapy is suitable for the treatment of a large number of diseases or injuries, both in humans and in animals.
- On the head, migraines and tension headaches can be reduced .
- Pain in the back , such as a herniated disc and other spinal pain can be relieved .
- At the knee z. B. treat osteoarthritis and joint pain .
- At the onset of osteoporosis, therapeutic magnetic radiation can improve the bone structure .
- Tinnitus can be alleviated by magnetic field therapy.
- Those affected by depression report improvements .
Magnetic therapy stimulates the restricted or disturbed microcirculation in the body. This activates the self-healing powers and supports important endogenous regulatory processes . People benefit from this in many ways.
- Pain is relieved or disappears completely.
- Swelling goes down, spasms are relieved.
- Healing and regeneration processes are activated and accelerated .
- blood circulation is improved and the metabolism.
In this video, magnetic field therapy is explained again.
A number of studies have shown, among other things, improved blood circulation and oxygen supply in the tissue , an improvement in the energy metabolism and a normalization of the natural electrical potentials within the body cells.
In general, the more applications, the higher the efficiency of magnetic field therapy.
Who should avoid magnetic field therapy?
- Wearers of cardiac pacemakers and other electronic implants (e.g. insulin pumps).
- People with severe angina pectoris .
- people with acute bleeding .
- People with severe fungal diseases .
- People suffering from epilepsy .
- People with severe cardiac arrhythmias (grades 3 and 4).
- Persons suffering from acute tuberculosis .
- People with an overactive thyroid .
- People with fever (above 39°C) .
- During pregnancy , the use of magnetic field systems should only be used in exceptional cases and after consultation with a professional prescription.
