The irrational and remarkable bias against the therapeutic use of static magnets

Sep 30, 2018 | News, Sceptics

The bias against the therapeutic use of static magnets in society is as irrational as it is remarkable.

An article titled – “What are the best methods to help reduce knee pain” was published in The Australian on September 28, 2018 as republished from the The Times of UK. The author, Peta Bee claimed that magnets “work by increasing the circulation of iron in the blood”. This description is comical and completely contradicted by published research as explained in this article on debunking myths around magnetic therapy and blood flow. The published clinical trial used to justify the author’s rediculous comments was a 2009 paper using magnetic and copper bracelets; see references below.

Twice we attempted to post a comment, not our words, but quoting a published Harvard Medical School clinical trial using static magnets for knee pain and twice the comment post was denied publication. You could call this a classic example of astroturfing, where vested interests promote agendas.

Below is the quote from a reputable researcher, from a published Harvard Medical School study. Compare this description of how static magnetic fields might have physiological effects to the juvenile description from the author of the article….

“Scientists suggest that magnetic fields can influence important biologic processes in the following ways: decrease the firing rate of certain neurons, particularly c-type chronic pain neurons; change the rate of enzyme-mediated reactions, which may play a role in inflammatory cascades and free radical generation; modulate intracellular signalling by affecting the functioning of calcium channels in cell membranes; and cause small changes in blood flow.”

According to Dr Goiz, the biomagnetic pairing technique involves using pairs of bipolar magnets to balance pH, improve the immune system and overcome disease. Studies that show positive benefits for pain relief are achieved when multipolar magnets such as Q Magnets are specifically placed on areas such as trigger points and nerve connections.
