Our bodies are composed of cells, and each cell works like a magnet with a north pole and a south pole. The magnetic field of each cell, then, is responsible for drawing into the cell things it needs and for transporting out of the cell things no longer needed. Because of this, magnets can be used therapeutically to soothe pain, reduce inflammation, stop bleeding, stimulate healing, and much more. Generally, it is best to use an unipolar north pole magnet for these purposes. The magnet can be placed on the affected area, such as a finger or a knee, for several minutes to several hours, depending on the strength of the magnet. Magnets are not advised for people wearing pacemakers or defibrillators or on expecting mothers.
A magnet is also a convenient healing tool to have in your “backpack” for preparedness situations. You can get yours at Herbs etc today!
