Can a piece of jewelry really help heal you? Perhaps, if it’s a piece of Magnetic Jewelry. Those who are devotees of wearing magnetic jewelry say that the research shows pain is often linked to poor circulation and a lack of oxygen in the affected area. When there’s swelling, fluids are trapped in the affected area and cell wastes are not carried away as efficiently as they should be. It’s been said that the magnets in the jewelry help to relieve pain and inflammation by increasing blood flow to the affected area(s) which can be anywhere from head to toe, literally. If you wear magnetic earrings, for example, you may relieve pain in the ears, neck, jaw, and sometimes, even headaches
The proper way to get relief is to buy jewelry with strong magnets and wear them as close to your skin as possible, as close to the site of the pain as possible. You may not get immediate relief (you should wear the jewelry 24/7 until the pain is gone), but you have the benefit of wearing cool looking jewelry while you’re working on that pain relief!
One company that has high quality, magnetic jewelry is L Michaels Designer Magnetic Jewelry with all their magnetic jewelry designs sold under the exclusive US Patent # 6,427,486. Their fashionable, Healing Magnetic Bracelets are all assembled by hand and are composed of Neodymium magnets. This type of magnet is known to provide the best Conductive Field and are the most widely used for healing purposes. The bracelets are composed of 40-60 individual, 5,000 gauss, sintered, Neodymium magnets, coated several times with nickel, copper, epoxy (and gold if gold is part of the design). Get a necklace-sized piece, and you might have enough for a ring, too.
I really like the clean, sleek, modern lines and bold statement the black magnets make with a touch of shiny metal, but there are lots of other options and shapes, in silver and gold, black, and even with semi-precious stones. Each bracelet measures 1/2″ wide and 8 1/2″ long so they fit just about any wrist (I removed some of the magnets on mine, because my wrist is thin). I particularly liked this gold and black bracelet, that can be re-organized with the bars and balls anywhere you want them to sit. The company has over 200 different styles/sizes to choose from among their bracelets, anklets, chokers, necklaces, and rings Buy yours, and make a design that’s all your own. Since they are magnetic, they just pull apart and attract, together.
As with many things I review, I cannot say for sure that magnetic jewelry will provide pain relief (or a lot of relief) to everyone–everyone is different. I can say for sure that magnetic jewelry makes a unique statement and is worthy of your attention as a fashion accessory. Fashion Tip: the magnetic bracelet makes a unique ponytail wrap (around an elastic) because the magnets hold tight and form a perfect ring — instant hair bling!
I had a bad headache when I started writing this review, and at this point, it’s diminishing, but was it the magnets alone? I can’t really say. According to what I’ve been reading about magnetic therapy, some people get almost instant benefits in about 48 hours, and for others, it could be a month to see a noticeable effect, with the average time about two weeks. If you want to focus on a specific part of your body that aches, you can simply massage the area that hurts with your jewelry by gliding it back and forth across your skin, although you can’t keep that up for long, You can try skimming off a few of the magnets from your bracelet, ring or necklace, and tape them directly to your skin. Keep them there as long as you feel pain.
L Michaels Designer Magnetic Jewelry is fashion forward and has a “cool” factor, but magnets are still alternative therapy when it comes to pain relief. If you want to use them for more than a fashion statement, I’d suggest you wear the magnetic jewelry along with using more traditional healing and pain relief methods. And, be sure to keep your magnetic pieces away from children, who have been known to swallow the magnetics or put them in places (e.g. noses and ears) that they’re not supposed to go!
