Italian Study Shows Static Magnetic Fields Benefits Pain.

DISCLAIMER:
The type of magnet used is this study is not a Q magnet.

 

An Italian study using neodymium magnets sewn into textile supports worn 2-8 hours/day for 4 months has shown significant benefits over and above placebo. The 48 subjects enrolled in the study suffered from osteoarthritis or osteoporosis and were assessed for pain perception at 2 and 4 months after commencing the trial.

The perception of pain was significantly reduced in the active group (36% reduction) and increased in the placebo group (3.4% increase) (p<0.001). In addition, there was an improvement in the quality of sleep in patients with osteoarticular pain.

Multipolar static magnetic field may provide relief to side-effects of pain medications…

DISCLAIMER:
The type of magnet used is this study is not a Q magnet.
The safety and effectiveness of Q magnets has not been established in the treatment of erosive gastritis.

Every week, new research is published strengthening the claim that static magnets can be optimised for therapeutic effects. While the magnetic device used in this study is not a Q magnet, the multipolar arrangement does exhibit similar properties.

Researchers at Semmelweis University (Budapest) conducted a randomised, double blind placebo-controlled trial to investigate the effects of a multipolar static magnet device on symptoms related to erosive gastritis. The same magnetic array has previously been shown to have an analgesic effect on mice and increased the pain threshold in humans (see references below).

Magnetic Revolution: Why magnetism is a new frontier in medical research.

 

The use of magnetic fields is fast developing into a most promising area of medical research. Magnetism is cutting edge in the areas of cardiology (remote magnetic navigation, spatially targeted therapeutics), surgery (reflux management system), oncology (magnetic induction hyperthermia), radiology (MRI) and pathology (magneto-optic screening), while the use of medical magnets in pain management is gaining credibility amongst medical practitioners.

The principle reason for this magnetic revolution in medicine is science. That is, by testing, validating and refining the optimisation process. Innovation produces more effective technologies and their commercialisation improves the lives of patients. Magnetism in medicine has the added advantage of its non-invasive nature with few side-effects and relatively low-cost. Unfortunately, most people’s concept of magnetic therapy is bipolar magnets in underlays and magnetic jewellery, however these are just a diversion to the real innovation.

Cochrane Review Supports the Use of Electromagnetic Field Therapy

DISCLAIMER:
The type of magnets evaluated in this review are electromagnetic fields (generated by electricity) and not static magnetic fields as Q magnets are defined.

 

The Cochrane Collaboration published an important review in October 2013 called “Electromagnetic fields for treating osteoarthritis (Review)”.

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 iron (Fe) in the blood in not attracted to a magnet field.

The scientific principles around iron in haemoglobin have now made it possible to simply detect the malaria parasite using a combination of magnetic fields and laser light. Many clinics use LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) in the treatment of pain which can be very effective and possibly improved by using Q magnets in conjunction as a “take home” therapy. So it’s great news to see magnetic fields and laser combine once again, 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.
