Fact 3: The strength of your magnetic bracelet is just as important as using it for the right condition.

Not all magnetic bracelets are created equal. Making sure that you have the correct strength of bracelet will be the difference between you relieving your finger, hand or wrist pain and you gaining absolutely no benefit from the bracelet what so ever. Using the correct strength bracelet is imperative.

How To Know Which Bracelet Is The Right One For You

It is absolutely vital for any one who is currently using or contemplating using magnets to thoroughly understand what is the appropriate strength of magnet to use for healing purposes. A minimum strength per magnet is required to ensure that the magnetic field is powerful enough to penetrate through the skin and into the blood stream.

If a healing magnet does not have a minimum of 800 gauss then it will not penetrate into the skin. Having said that, an 800 gauss magnet is by no means weak. It does have sufficient strength to stimulate blood flow and reduce inflammation.

The unit of magnetic measurement is called gauss. The unit gauss has been replaced in industry with a more up to date measurement the Tesla. However in medicine magnets are still rated in gauss as the gauss measurement allows for a more precise calculation of lower strengths, than those used in industry.

The stronger the magnet the deeper the penetration into the skin and the wider magnetic field, so for more serious ailments and chronic, longstanding conditions, stronger magnets are recommended. 1,500-2,000 gauss magnets are considered to be high strength.

For extreme pain and very severe chronic conditions super strength magnets are advocated. These are magnets that have a gauss rating of 3,000 or above. Super strength magnets are rapidly gaining in popularity as they offer such a deep level of penetration and create a very large magnetic field.

Results are more rapid with this strength of magnet. They are recommended for people who suffer with severe pain, for example from fibromyalgia, M.S., M.E. and severe arthritis.

You Have Hundreds Of Bracelets To Choose From -
How To Tell The Weak From The Strong

Ok, so you know what strength bracelet you need and you start to look at different suppliers to see find a bracelet that suits your needs and is the best quality for the most competitive price. Thatís totally understandable; we all like to shop around.

Suddenly you have walked into a minefield; all these bracelets look the same. Each supplier seems to have the same sort of bracelets, open ended bangle ones, coiling hematite ones and stainless steel or titanium ones. How on earth are you going to know which is the strongest and which is best for you.

Oddly enough, even though the bracelets on one website may look exactly like the bracelets on another website it doesnít always equate that they are the same strength. In actual fact they can vary by as much as 2,000 gauss per magnet and that makes a lot of difference to their ability to reduce pain.

The other pitfall you face is the number of magnets in each bracelet; even designs which look identical donít always have the same number of magnets in them. For instance, the open ended bangle type bracelets can have either 2 or 6 magnets in them and not all suppliers list how many magnets are in their bracelets.

The phrase BUYER BEWARE is not too strong a caution when navigating the murky waters of buying a magnetic bracelet. To help simplify this very complex choice below is a table that reveals the different types of bracelet sold by a number of suppliers and the strength of the magnets they use in their bracelets.

One last word of caution,

Regardless of where you buy your magnetic bracelet from, you should always ascertain the strength of the magnets and the number of magnets. They should be at least 800 gauss per magnet. Anything less than this will not have any effect on the body at all.

If the retailer will not tell you the strength of their magnets or does not know the strength of their magnets then simply walk away.

You should NEVER buy any therapeutic magnet if you do not know the strength of it!

And one more thing, do not be dazzled by cheap tricks and illusions. If a retailer refuses or cannot tell you the strength of their magnets but says that they can prove their strength because they can pick up a fork or knife with the bracelet do not be fooled.

A weak industrial disc magnet which is 18mm in diameter can pick up a fork but it will only be around 800 gauss. This does not denote strength merely size.

Basically, the ability to pick up cutlery is linked to size not strength. A 3,000 gauss magnet which is 4mm in diameter will not pick up a fork but it is substantially stronger than a 800 gauss magnet which is 18mm in diameter.

The larger surface area is responsible for picking up the fork not the strength. Even a large 800 gauss magnet will not penetrate into your body as fast or far as a smaller 3,000 gauss magnet.

The final word; strength is always more important than size. Ask about the strength and ALWAYS choose strength over size.
