This website is about magnets, electromagnets and your health.
Topics include magnet history, electromagnetic theory and medicine.
Can a magnet really treat pain, muscle ache, arthritis and fibromyalgia?
We try to give a balanced contrast between magnet hype and medical truth.
Permanent Magnet, Electromagnet, Pain Relief and Alternative Medicine
( Magnetic Field, Lorentz, Faraday, Cell Membrane, Pole, Gauss, Tesla, PEMF)
( Pain, Muscle Ache, Tension, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Joint Problems, Bone Disease )
Magnets have a long history, some of it good and some of it bad. Modern medicine uses magnets in supportive roles such as MRI imaging machines. Magnet therapy is not part of mainstream medicine but is used by individuals to treat themselves for pain, tension, sore muscles, body aches and joint problems. The recent troubles with pain relievers like Vioxx, Bextra and Celebrex have forced many people to search for alternatives to prescription drugs. We try to give a balanced account of how a magnet affects pain and human health by exploring magnet history, permanent magnets, electromagnets, terminology, specifications, cell membranes, nerve thresholds and current medical research.
