Magnets have been used for thousands of years to combat a whole host of varied health complaints and conditions. They work by enhancing the electromagnetic field around the body that helps to speed up the healing of injuries, boost energy levels, reduce pain from the likes of arthritis and period pain, as well as encouraging a better night's sleep.
Cleopatra is said to have been a big fan of magnets, as well as Queen Elizabeth I. However, in today's world our bodies are under more intense pressure to cope with increased amounts of stress, processed foods, pesticides and electrical pollution, so there's all the more reason to use magnets.
The key to how they work is based on solid scientific research that the electromagnetic field produced by magnets allows blood to circulate more effectively and be thoroughly oxygenated. Getting a good supply of fully oxygenated blood to any damaged areas then assists healing, as well as giving an overall feeling of greater wellbeing.
There are lots of different magnet products on the market that target different areas of the body. One company, Norstar for example, make everything from magnetic pillows, earrings and wristbands, to solitary magnets that can be placed wherever they are needed and a magnetic mattress pad designed for all round good health. Our tester tried out Norstar's magnetic mattress pad, here's how they got on:
Norstar Mattress Pad
The mattress pad is available in a range of different sizes to suit the size of your bed. You simply lay it over your mattress and under your sheet and you can't even feel that it's there. The first night I used it I had the best night's rest I had had in ages. Generally I find that I do sleep more soundly when using the pad and this has had the knock on effect of giving me more energy to face the day with. I have also found that I have felt much more focused at work, an added bonus I wasn't expecting. As the mattress pad has the highest concentration of magnets of all the Norstar products it is recommended that you drink lots of water to aid the body to rid itself of toxins that the magnets encourage the body to lose for the best results.
