3 Tips for Wearing Magnetic Bracelets
Magnetic Bracelets are recognized to ease pain, increase energy, improve sleeping (and more!). The benefits are many and can really make a difference in how you feel!
As with many things we use, though, there are a few 'dos and don'ts' that you want to know about wearing magnetic bracelets. Follow these, and you'll be sure you are getting the most benefit from your magnetic bracelet.
*** Know the magnetic strength of any magnetic jewelry that you wear. Gauss is the unit of measurement of a magnetic field and is used to measure the magnetic strength of a magnetic device.
Magnets used to relieve pain and provide health benefits should be greater than 800 gauss. Any less and it may not penetrate the skin. For best results, you really want something rated between 1,500 and 2,000 gauss or higher.
There is no limit to how much magnetic strength can be worn. The greater the strength, the greater the results. The stronger the magnet(s), the deeper the penetration and wider the magnetic field, meaning pain would be decreased over a larger area in the body.
*** To ensure your magnetic bracelet will be effective, your bracelet must fit correctly. If your bracelet fits too loosely, the magnetic field will not be able to penetrate your skin. If the bracelet fits too tightly, it might cause your arm or wrist to swell and affect your circulation.
To ensure your bracelet fits correctly, first measure your wrist with a tape measure. Wrap it leaving the tape measure flat and tight. Then, add 1/2 inch to the measurement. This should allow for a snug fit, but also give you room for a bit of a gap giving your wrist some “breathing room”.
*** Wear your magnetic bracelet close to the are of pain as possible. Magnetic bracelets only bring pain relief in the area closest to where they are worn. So, if you have arthritis pain in your feet and ankles, you'll want to wear a magnetic ankle bracelet. For pain in your hands, a magnetic bracelets. If you have neck pain or headaches, a magnetic necklace would be the way to go.
If you don't notice immediate relief when you first start wearing magnetic bracelets, don't give up! For some people it can take up to 2 weeks of consistent wear before they notice a change.
