Magnetic Jewelry: How it helps to ease pain
We talk a lot around here about how magnetic jewelry helps to ease your pain.
What we don't talk a lot about is HOW it helps to ease your pain.
Have you ever wondered how a magnet can do that??
In the early 2000's, Thomas Skalak and Cassandra Morris set out to find the answer to this question. The specific claim they examined was this -- "Can magnets increase blood flow?"
In a nutshell, here is what they found.....
Blood vessels that had been dilated BEFORE exposure to magnets became constricted AFTER exposure to magnets.
And, blood vessels that had been constricted BEFORE exposure to magnets then became dilated AFTER exposure to magnets.
Ultimately, this implies that the magnetic field can cause the blood vessels to relax, increasing blood flow.
This is important in the pain relief process because when we suffer an injury, it is the dilation of blood vessels that causes swelling around the injury. When the blood vessels relax, the swelling goes down. When there is no swelling, our injuries heal faster and there is less pain. It is the swelling that we want to get rid of to ease pain.
The same thing works with arthritis. When arthritis is painful, there is swelling around our joints. Using magnets to increase blood flow, decreases the swelling and eases the pain.
