I suffer from idopathic scoliosis,
spinal stenosis, spinal oste-arthrits and a hip which needs
to be replaced! I am 59 years old...do you believe
magnetic therapy would help to
relieve the constant pain I am in?
Thank you for your email.
Magnetic therapy will be able to help you to reduce or even resolve the pain
that you are in but it is important to get the correct magnetic products.
You obviously have a very chronic back problem and need to get as many magnets
as you can onto that area. We do a package deal of a back belt, a bed pad, and a
water wand. This would be a great place for you to start. Ultimately you should
consider a mattress cover as this
would be the best thing for you but if you would prefer to start with something
smaller to see how you get on with
it I would definitely recommend the package.
The back belt is a soft neoprene strap that fastens around the waist or can be
worn lower down over the hips, depending on where you are in the most pain. It
fastens with velcro so is adjustable and comes in 2 sizes. It contains 12 x
2,400 gauss magnets which will work to help
reduce pain and inflammation. The minimum strength that should be used for
therapeutic purposes is 800 gauss, so you can see that these magnets are at the
higher end of the scale and have the
ability to take a way large amounts of pain. You should wear the back belt 24
hours a day 7 days a week, apart from bathing etc, until you have felt relief
then you can remove it or carry on wearing it all the time to prevent the pain
from coming back.
The bed pad would work in conjunction with the back belt to help reduce your
pain and promote healing of the area. The bed pad is a large cotton pad
that you place into your
bed, on top of the mattress but under your sheet. The sheet will keep it in
place whilst you are asleep at night.
The bed pad contains 20 x 2,400 gauss magnets so again is a strong magnetic
device. You should position this pad so that it covers the area that is in most
pain. During the night
the body is semi-shut down so it is more able to repair, heal and relieve, this
is why it is so important to also use magnets at night as well as during the day
and the bed pad is a good way of getting that extra magnetism during the night.
It is washable as 40 degrees and both the magnets
in the bed pad and the back belt will last for 10 years.
The water wand is also very important. Drinking at least 4 glasses of magnetised
water a day will greatly benefit you. It will help to flush out toxins from the
blood that have built
up over the years from general life and taking painkillers which will make you
feel more energetic and refreshed. It can also help with high blood pressure,
high cholesterol levels and can help maintain sugar levels. It will help to
reduce the symptoms of inflammatory bowel conditions and
some skin conditions and also improve general circulation.
But above all this you should really think about drinking magnetised water
because it will greatly increase the effect
that you will receive from using the other magnets on the outside of your body.
Drinking the water means that
you are ingesting magnetism, this is a good way of getting magnetism absorbed
into your system quickly. The magnetism on the inside will work with the magnets
on the outside and increase their effectiveness by 10%. You really will feel the
benefits much more quickly if you use this package altogether.
