Magnets were used in the 20th century B.C. The legend tells us that Cleopatra wore a special magnetic bracelet to save her youth and her health. Many famous doctors used magnetic flux treatment. For example, the great German doctor, named Paracelsus, who was the personal doctor of Queen Elizabeth, William Gilbert, and the most famous doctor of the 18th century, Franz Mesmer all used magnetic flux treatment. They used it for pain relief, gait problems, nervous system disorders, and the treatment of colic.
The intake of medicines became very popular and wide spread. Therefore, people forgot about the natural method of magnetic flux treatment. It is worth admitting that magnetic therapy was discovered again in the fifties of the 20th century in Russia and Japan.
Space exploration has shown that the terrestrial magnetic field has a positive effect. The scientists have discovered that astronauts suffer from developing osteoporosis and depression after their missions. But, it was also discovered that it was possible the development of these diseases if the artificial magnetic field is created in the spaceships and their environmental suits.
For the last few years, the terrestrial magnetic field has changed due to the technological progress of computers, radios, mobile phones, television, and many more things affect the magnetic field of our planet greatly. We also spend a lot of time in concrete and metal buildings and in cars, trains, and in automobiles where the magnetic field is reduced. And, today, Japanese doctors have discussed the so called magnetic field deficiency syndrome. The symptoms include shoulder muscle tension, backbone pain, headaches, myaalgia, sleep disorders, dyspepsia, blood disorder problems, and general weakness.
Therefore, the method of magnetic therapy includes magnetic flux treatment and has become popular again. Nowadays, many doctors offer their patients many magnetic things to wear. For example, you can wear bracelets and rings. In addition, you can have magnet therapy in your home. It is labeled general magnetic flux treatment.
There are also special medical devices for magnetic flux treatment. They are used for the healing power of magnetic flux that works as an anti-inflammatory agent, decongestant, vasoconstrictor, sedative, immunomodular, and regenerative power. This electro magnetic therapy is highly effective in the case of radiculitis, osteochondrosis, asthmatic bronchitis, colitis, gastritis, pardontonis maxillary sinusitis, musculoskeletal system injuries, and the postoperative period. Sedative and hypertensive action of the magnetic field makes electro magnetic therapy irreplaceable in the cases of hypertension and hyper excitability.
Generally speaking, electromagnetic therapy is more effective thanks to its power of penetration. In this case, the resonance is very important. As we know, the vibrating system responds to other vibrations if its own vibration frequency is equal to the vibration frequency of the source. By the way, the human organism consists of many vibration systems. One separate cell is also a separate vibration system.
Today, modern scientists analyze the vibration frequency of different tissues and different body organs as well as frequencies for different pathologies. The reason for this appears to be evident. It makes the methods of electro magnetic therapy and pulsed magnetic therapy more effective and harmless. There are some data bases of therapeutic frequencies, but still there needs to be some improvements and specifications.
