the british medical journal released a study last month about using magnetic bracelets in treatment for joint pain of the hip and knee,

some folks swear by it. cant say myself. sure sounds interesting, magnets are cheap.

cant say about any side effects. except maybe pulling fence staples out of old posts when you walk too close to them.

My wife's knees were in bad shape.She was to the point,at 37 years old,where she could not walk up the stairs to our second floor without having extreme pain.She had orthoscopic surgery,to the tune of about $7,500 in bills. While she was in the recovery room,the surgeon told her that she would have to have it done again in a year or two because this procedure didn't totally take care of the problem.

Sure enough,six months later,she couldn't navigate the stairs again because of the pain.

I had been hearing about high powered magnetics for pain relief from a program on shortwave.I ordered two pair of high powered magnetic insoles for her as a Christmas gift.The studies say it takes awhile to work,and to give it time.

Needless to say,she was skeptical.Yet she wore them.One pair in her house slippers and the other pair in her walking outside shoes.We didn't talk about it for awhile.Then one day in the following February,about 45 days from Christmas,I saw her bouncing up the stairs with a load of clean laundry.When she came back downstairs,I asked her how the pain in her knees was.It was then she and I both realized she had no pain!It has been 4 years and 6 pairs of insoles later,and she is painfree in her knees.The magnetic "therapy" is the only thing that could have changed the situation.No other operations,drugs,excercises or therapies.

I have a brother who is a pediatrician and a sister in law who is an OB/GYN.They both say magnetic therapy is a bunch of hooey.My wife's knees say different. Mark.

So how would I go about magnetizing my hands? So far, the pain is just in the last joint of both pinkies, and I'm getting a little pain and stiffness in the last joint of my forefingers. My hips ache every so often, as do my "pinky toes."
The insoles would work for sure for my toes, but what about fingers?

Look for Lyon Magnetics.They are in Wisconsin,I think.I'll look for the address.Probly won't see it until tomorrow as I have a school board meeting tonight and they usually go way past my usual bedtime.

As for your fingers,they have various products for every part of the body.I think the fingers are helped by a glove you wear at night.Hands and wrist are helped by a glove with no fingers on them.The also have a high powered magnetized brick that you magnetize drinking water with by setting the glass water jug on top of it for awhile.The health effects are said to be substantial.Probably the most interesting aspect of magnetic therapy,to me,is the testimony I heard from callers who used a high powered magnetic skull cap for migraine and chronic headache relief,and had great success.Who knows?
Maybe there is something to it. Mark

I mean no disrespect here, but "magnetizing" drinking water? I'm having a little problem suspending my disbelief quite that far...

next parade pay attention - when those shiny-headed farmers remove their hats, if they all just turn katoonk towards the passing flagpole, yup it might be the water! good thing the schoolmarm Ms Primdoilie didn't have her virginia upgraded, otherwise everytime the guys stood up to sing a hymn, you'd hear "katoonk"! lol

None taken at all.I only advocate what I have personally seen.The rest is up to the individual.I think,however,that water molecules and other particulates in that water can be affected by magnetism.Take a look at their info if you care to. Have a great evening. Mark

good to read that mark. i am glad you responded.

if it works it aint hokey in my book.

i had accupuncture for two torn rotator cuffs. it worked despite what the ortho guy said. that was 10 years ago. sure glad his knife didn't carve on me.

from what i have read the magnets work with the electrical impulse that our bodies generate.

thanks again for telling us about your wife's success.


Here's the email addy    Posted 01-10-2005 at 14:32:11       [Reply]  [No Email] Good luck! Mark
