New York Times Article from 1997 shows the purview of magnetic therapy research and development

by | Feb 7, 2024 | History

Back in 1997, an article in NYT described the state of magnetic therapy research. The author, Dr. Lawrence E. Altman, M.D. writes an elegant article that not only shows us the stigma and criticism faced in the early days but also describes Dr. Valbonna’s early work with magnetic therapy in practice for treating post-polio syndrome pain

The article also gives a good purview of the work of other doctors and scientists in the field such as Dr. Lauro S. Halstead (post-polio) and Ann Gill Taylor (fibromyalgia, phantom limb and stump pain among amputees). One can feel the stigma and criticism in that era when magnetic therapy was considered fringe.

1997 is not a long time back at all, phones were getting smarter already. We could say magnetic therapy is now an emerging complementary modality. The availability of information and possibility of collaboration online has done wonders for wider adoption.

The NYT article also touches upon the matters of funding among other challenges faced by magnetic therapy promoters. We are proud to say that as original innovators, our product, i.e., the Q magnets are a patented Class I medical device in Australia for pain relief and as such can be purchased over the counter. This opens exciting research opportunities for medical professionals interested in advancing magnetic field therapy. We welcome collaborations and contributions to further Q magnets application. Research and design is ongoing as new and improved features and applications are developed to make Q Magnets more user friendly and to improve their therapeutic effect. So if you’re a medical researcher and would like to contribute to magnetic field therapy, we’ll be happy to hear from you.
