What we can learn from a doctor’s 1880 article on the therapeutic use of magnets.

Summary of what we can learn… 

  1. The stigma from people promoting magnetic therapy products was already well established by 1880.
  2. Simple treatments can avoid the risk and side-effects of more toxic therapies.
  3. The concept of improving the magnetic apparatus used, what we refer to today as the optimisation process was already being contemplated.

 

In 1880, an article published in the Scientific American Supplement, by retired US Army Surgeon-General William Hammond M.D. stated…

Cupping with Q Magnet Application Case Study

Cupping is applied by suction within a “cup” on the surface of the skin. An after effect is the stagnation of blood, which can persist for a few weeks after treatment. The application of Q magnets over haematomas has been shown to leave a white circle underneath where the magnet is applied only in a matter of days. Numerous examples have been documented such as these four…

New Research Paper Explores How Magnets May Relieve Pain…

 

Pain signals are transmitted by tiny electromagnetic pulses via the nervous system.  Over the years, researchers have proposed many mechanisms for how static magnets might effect nerve cells (neurons) in a way that has therapeutic value.

Some suggestions like magnets attracting iron in the blood are just plain wrong. We have provided a theory of how Q magnets might alleviate pain here, the basis being changes to Sodium (Na+) and Calcium  (Ca2+) ions permeability across the cell membrane. The flow of Na+ and Ca2+ ions through gates within the nerve cell membrane are how these tiny electromagnetic pulses, called Action Potentials reach threshold voltage in order to discharge. The action potential is the fundamental pulse of the nervous system.

The theory of how Quadrapolar magnets provide pain relief goes like this…

Knee Pain – Acupuncture, Low Level Laser and Q magnets pain relief

 

Acupuncture is a popular complementary therapy for knee pain, however a recent study did not recommend acupuncture for chronic knee pain in patients over 50 years. In this article we review the research and show how acupuncture can be combined synergistically with Q magnet therapy as a supplementary treatment for even better pain relief (see references below).

 

We have had feedback from many people claiming Q magnets complement acupuncture for the relief of pain from knee osteoarthritis.

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), psychiatry (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS),  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.
