Are the Dinosaurs of Medicine the Innovators or the Sceptics?

In 2013, Steven Salzberg declared Battlefield Acupuncture the worst quackery for 2011. Follow this link for…his explanation.

Battlefield Acupuncture was pioneered by Dr Richard Niemtzow and is administered at the point of injury to provide comfort and pain relief to wounded soldiers. Salzberg uses pejoratives such as pseudoscience, nonsense and unscientific to label acupuncture, as well as other complimentary therapies such as magnetic field therapy.

 

Astroturfing and its relevance to agendas behind magnetic field therapy

The content of this TEDx talk is impressive. Sharyl Attkisson, an authentic investigative journalist explains the concept of astroturfing, how vested interests skew agendas.

Powerful companies and movements engage in astroturfing to fool you that there is widespread support for or against an agenda, when there really isn’t. They manipulate you into thinking you’re weird or gullible, when you’re not.

 

Static magnets providing hope for post-polio syndrome pain sufferers.

While polio may have been eliminated in the industrialised world, there are still thousands of post-polio sufferers living with the after effects of chronic pain. Polio Australia has been established specifically for post-polio survivors and is an excellent resource.

 

DISCLAIMER:
The type of magnet used is this study is not a Quadrapolar magnet, but a flexible rubber magnet with alternating poles of concentric rings, available on the Q magnets website by clicking HERE.
The safety and effectiveness of Q magnets has not been established in the treatment of post-polio pain.

Ridiculous arguments against magnetic field therapy deserve comical responses (II)…

This is the second drawing in our comical response series…

Some of the arguments put forward by skeptics against magnetic therapy are so hilarious, we’ve come up with a few comical responses of our own. How many times do you hear people say magnets are too weak or they don’t penetrate deep enough to do anything. It’s like someone saying why would you want to carry a brick mobile phone with you, they’re too heavy and all you can do is make a call.

Use of magnets post-surgery

 

We get many enquiries from people wanting to know how magnets might help after surgery and particularly for nerve regeneration.

 

The most relevant study looking at the use of static magnets post-surgery is by Man et al. This showed reduced postoperative pain, less need for pain medication and faster recovery. See summary of study here and references below.
