Magnetic Therapy By Abigail Bown

Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF):

Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields uses magnetic energy to put electrical impulses where you feel pain. Electrical impulses are "a sudden flow of electrical current in one direction." Electro-magnets affect our sensory nerves so they can affect how much pain our sensory nerves feel and control it.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields Mat

This is a PEMF mat. It has electrical coils inside of it and when electricity gets passed through them, it creates a magnetic field that goes through the body. Magnetic fields can reach deeper in the body than heating pads which is a part of what makes them so good. When blood cells are irritated, they are stacked but the magnetic field passes through them and separates them. This helps the infection heal faster and get more oxygen.

Magnetic Bracelets

Examples of Magnetic Bracelets

Magnetic Bracelets use magnetic fields to improve people's overall health. Since blood contains iron, magnetic bracelets help improve blood flow.

Benefits of Magnetic Bracelets

  • Improves circulation: magnets draw blood to the arm and hand. Improved blood flow can also speed up the removal of toxins from your body.
  • Reduces Inflammation: inflammation is result of infection or strain but since there is more blood flowing, it heals quicker.
  • Helps you relax: the bracelets can make magnetic waves pass through the body, which relaxes our bodies' tissue.
  • Better sleep: can improve melatonin production (melatonin: 'a hormone that controls sleep and wakefulness").
  • Less pain: magnetic bracelets help our bodies make endorphins which are a hormone that can act as natural pain killers.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Body MRI)

Body MRI is a noninvasive way for doctors to find problems or diseases in your chest, abdomen and pelvis. Noninvasive means "not requiring the introduction of an instrument into the body." MRIs use radio waves, magnetic fields and a computer. Radio waves control the magnetic position of the atoms in your body. The atena on the machine then picks them up and sends them to the computer. The computer does many calculations and we end up with a black and white or colored detailed body image.
