Magnets fight back the moon

Magnets these days are used in advanced diagnostic devices, but in the past they served certain weird purposes. Back then, the moon was thought to be responsible for intermittent episodes of depression and hysteria. An Austrian physician knew the best way to beat the moon’s forces — magnets! Drape magnets all over the patient’s body and watch a medical miracle as body fluids get redistributed and mental equilibrium restored!

Some people use magnet therapy for treating pain, such as foot, back, or joint pain.

Research studies have been done on magnets, but there are not consistent results showing that magnets help with pain relief.

Young children and pregnant women should not use magnetic field therapy, because the safety of this therapy is not proved. People who have medical devices or implants with a magnetic field, such as a pacemaker, should not use magnet therapy, because it could interfere with the function of the implant.

Magnet therapy is not thought to have negative side effects or complications when it is combined with conventional medical treatment.

Talk with your doctor about any complementary health practice that you would like to try or are already using. Your doctor can help you manage your health better if he or she knows about all of your health practices.
