Magnet Therapy – A History

February 22, 2012

 

Magnet therapy is an old idea.  Ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Chinese cultures have all written about using magnets to treat health conditions from arthritis, to gout, to headaches.  NASA recognized how important magnetic fields are for life on our planet back in the 1960’s. From then until now artificial magnetic fields are used in space for the health of the astronauts.  Magnets assist in preserving bone mineral density, improving circulation, and improving the quality sleeping.  The artificial magnetic fields  reduced the effects of being away from the planet’s magnetic field.

Magnetic therapy has been an accepted treatment option for centuries.  The National Health Services of Britain recently began permitting physicians to start writing scripts for magnets.
