Magnetic field therapy uses different kinds of magnets on the body to help boost your overall health. It may also help treat certain conditions.
There are several types, including:
- Static magnetic field therapy
- Electromagnetic therapy
- Magnetic therapy
How its Works?
Human body naturally has magnetic and electric fields. All our molecules have a small amount of magnetic energy in them. The thought behind magnetic field therapy is that certain problems happen because our magnetic fields are out of balance. If you put a magnetic field near human body, it's believed things will go back to normal.
Ions like calcium and potassium help our cells send signals. In tests, scientists have seen magnets change how these ions act. However, so far, there isn’t evidence that magnets have the same effect on cells when they’re in human body.
