Magnetic Field Therapy
What is magnetic field therapy?
Magnet therapy uses natural or artifical magnets or magnetic field devices to act on the body from the outside with permanent or pulsating magnetic fields and to alleviate and heal complaints and diseases. Already the Egyptian priests used the 'cosmic' power of magnetic metal to treat illnesses. Hippocrates also describes healing with magnets.
Today's theory states that the magnetic field activates all body cells and causes oxygen accumulation in the tissue, which improves the cell metabolism. Bone formation should be stimulated, the hormone and immune system is stimulated, the nervous system is calm. Although there is largely no scientifiy evidence of these effects, a lot of people doing the treatment perceive positive effects.
