Magnetic Fields and Laser Combining Once Again to Improve People’s Lives…

In a previous post, we debunked the myths around magnetic therapy and blood flow and explained why the common assertion that the iron (Fe) in blood being attracted to a static magnet is absolute nonsense.

The scientific principles around iron in haemoglobin have now made it possible to simply detect the malaria parasite in blood by using a combination of magnetic fields and laser. Many clinics use LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) in the treatment of pain which can be very effective and is often greatly improved by using Q magnets in conjunction as a “take home” therapy. So it’s slightly ironic that once again magnetic fields and laser is combined, this time as a diagnostic tool.

As you know, haemoglobin in red blood cells contains iron and is the carrier used to transport life giving oxygen around the body. The malaria parasite digests haemoglobin as a food source, but the isolated heme component which contains the iron is toxic. So the parasite cleverly converts the heme into an insoluble rod like crystal called hemozoin.

Pain Relief from Osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia

I first heard about Q magnets from my sister who said they had helped her with her fibromyalgia pain.

Despite the price, I decided to purchase a set and used them for low back pain and then pain practically anywhere.

The magnets really do WORK!

I like that they are small and lightweight, yet powerful. I have osteoarthritis in my spine, a small tear in one of my lumbar discs, and muscle spasms/ nerve pain caused from Fibromyalgia.

Within an hour of putting the magnets on using BSN tape to secure them, my pain usually diminishes and I feel much better!

Relief from Nausea and better Sleep with Q magnets…

Q magnets can be applied to the P6 acupuncture point to assist with better sleep and provide relief from nausea.

Since the Q magnet needs to cover the acupuncture point to be most effective, the more accurate your placement the smaller the Q magnet device you can employ. But sometimes it’s better to purchase a larger device anyway so it can be used effectively on other areas of the body, particularly the larger joints such as the knee and shoulder and for lower back pain.

To find the acupuncture point P6, measure three fingers widths down from the crease in the wrist and it’s located in the grove between the two large tendons which are easily felt.

The smallest device we would recommend for acupuncture points is the QF10-2, you could also use a QF15-2 or QF20-3.

Application of magnetic fields in medicine is expanding and reducing the need for surgery in children…

The use of magnetic fields in medicine continues to develop every day. This BBC article describes an application for using magnetic rods to straighten curved spines and reduces the number of surgical procedures needed particularly for children.

The principle may be similar to this technique used at the Texas Children’s Hospital to lengthen bone prosthesis. This procedure takes around 20 minutes and uses an external magnetic field to drive a motor which then turns a screw to lengthen the leg. See the video below…

Do you need prompting to remember to use your Q magnets for pain relief?

You wouldn’t believe how many times we hear customers say… “I put up with this pain for weeks, before the lights went on and I remembered my Q magnets!” Unlike most drugs, with Q magnets you get pain relief and reduced risk of re-injury.

Now that you have your own set of Q magnets for ongoing pain relief, there are so many uses.  So instead of reaching for the systemic aspirin and/or anti inflammatories you can now use your Q magnets specifically over the affected areas.

The suggested placements work very well and are an excellent guide to placing them correctly.  Simple aches and pain can be relieved in a few minutes by simply placing them over the injured area.

If you have a headache you can place the devices over your temples, forehead and/or back of the head for a pain free result.

Magnetic Field Therapy – Paradoxically, few people are actually well informed about it.

 

In a journey through the history of magnetotherapy, Giordano, et al. (2009) concluded that…

Magnetotherapy has been applied and continues to be applied in many branches and fields of medicine, as it accelerates the healing of fractures, has analgesic and anti-inflammatory
properties that can help in inflammatory or degenerative diseases of bones, joints and the peripheral nervous system, and stimulates the healing of open skin lesions (such as bed sores, diabetic ulcers, etc.)

and

Magnetotherapy has so many fields of application in medicine, we may therefore ask why doubts, prejudice and limitations to its therapeutic use still exist? The answer may be that although many people prescribe and use magnetotherapy, paradoxically, few people are actually well informed about it.

When you understand the history of magnetic therapy, it’s easy to see where the doubts, prejudices and limitations to its therapeutic use originated.

Why Q magnets are a such a great therapy to self-manage pain..

 

Recently The Lancet published a comprehensive review on effectively managing pain. It said…

…use of more than one class of analgesic drug or technique concurrently—multimodal analgesia—or adjunct complementary therapies could hold promise in the future.

The fact is, there has been very little progress in the treatment of non-cancer pain in the past 10-20 years and pharmaceutical companies are even leaving the area.

Q magnets as an adjunct complementary therapy have arrived and are working for pain sufferers today.

Treatments such as Q magnets can be used as an adjunctive therapy by doctors, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals and used by the patient at home for  the self-management of pain. They can help decrease the reliance on pain medication and to cope with or even eliminate pain as these two case studies published in Pediatric Neurology show.

How pointing to the results of one study can be totally misleading…

 

In an article on livescience.com that was critical of magnetic therapy, the author made the comment that…

The deathblow to magnet therapy should have been the large, randomized, double-blinded study on pain published in 2007 in Anesthesia & Analgesia. Yet sales of therapeutic magnets remain legal.

We have made numerous mentions of this study by Cepeda, for example here and here. It’s clear that the Quadrapolar magnets used in the study were not even placed over the post-surgical wound, but around it. It’s unlikely that any of the magnetic field from the magnets applied to the patients would have enveloped the target tissue, that being the wound which is the site of the inflammation.

Static Magnetic Fields May Have an Anti-inflammatory Effect at The Cellular Level.

 

This in-vitro (cell study) experiment demonstrated convincing evidence that exposure to a strong, inhomogeneous static magnetic field (iSMF) for up to 24 hrs has a significant inhibitory effect on the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-α from macrophages as compared to negative, untreated control. There is also evidence that low-dose naloxone with morphine has a similar effect of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines (Lin, et al. 2010).  This suggests that the action of iSMF-exposure may be similar to that of serum morphine.

Effective pain relief for knee pain, back pain, tendonitis…etc, etc…

We initially purchased the Q Magnets to relieve pain in my wife Julie’s knee. I knew that they would be effective because I had been a previous Magnabloc user, but Julie was very skeptical. I explained to her the science behind the product and why it works so well and she decided to try it. She wore the magnets for a day and experienced some pain, but after some adjustments and proper placement she has had complete relief from the pain.
