Reduction of Inflammation and
Injured tissue emits a positive
charge. The magnets improve circulation, allowing blood vessels to
dilate and bring a greater volume of blood flow to the injured area.
This helps to bring in natural healers and to remove the toxic
by-products of inflammation – bradykinins, prostaglandin’s, and
histamines all of which contribute to inflammation and pain. Thus,
pain and inflammation are diminished and tissue healing is stimulated.
Magnetic therapy can help the
body ward off such microbial invaders such as viruses, bacteria, and
fungi. It achieves this, in part by increasing the immune function
through the oxygenation of white corpuscles, an important part of the
immune systems arsenal. A magnetic field can also function like an
antibiotic by lowering acidity, with the result that micro-organisms
have a more difficult time surviving.
The success of this therapy is
attributed, in part to its facilitating the migration of calcium ions
and osteoblasts to heal broken bones in less then the usual time. In
addition the migration of calcium occurs away from the joints to
reduce painful arthritic joint inflammation. The end result is the
non-invasive promotion of natural healing, without the use of
unnatural chemicals and drugs. Magnetic energy also softens or
eliminates scar tissue formed during the healing process. Some vets
put magnets into the dressings over fractures.
|Increased Athletic Endurance
Research and clinical experience show that magnets increase
energy. For many years magnetic therapy has been used around the
world on racehorses to heal injuries and enhance performance.
Although the effect of increased endurance and performance is
known, the cause is not definitively understood. It is felt that
magnetic energy warms up the muscles and joints so that
performance is increased. At least as important, serious injuries
are reduced. In addition, it is known that magnetic energy
increases blood flow to the muscles, thereby increasing strength
at these work sites.
The recent discovery of
magnetite in the cells of the brain helps explain the calming effect
of biomagnetic therapy. Magnacollar induces a hypnotic sleeping effect
on the brain by stimulating the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is known
to be anti-stressful, producing a sedating effect.
Magnets activate life promoting
enzymatic activity which in turn, encourage normal cell division. This
creates a healthier organism and may then slow down the ageing
process. Several studies on animals show magnetic therapy to increase
Magnetic therapy may be one of
the most effective methods for achieving relief from arthritis. It is
also thought that magnetic therapy may help reduce bone and tissue
As Magnacollar decreases
swelling of any kind it can be placed on a dog with red, itchy skin
with favourable results.
Some studies have shown that
using magnets for twenty four to forty-eight hours before surgery
results in better post-operative recovery. Additionally, wearing
Magnacollar after the sutures have been put in and all bleeding has
stopped can also speed up healing.
Magnets lessen the stickiness of
platelets, these are the blood components that produce the scab, so it
is best to remove the Magnacollar/ Magnaguard if the dog receives a
cut until the scab forms.
We are not saying that magnets
are a cure-all therapy for dogs. They should not be used by themselves
for any major disease or medical condition, but rather should be
looked at as a complementary therapy.
When using Magnacollar or
Magnaguard for long-standing conditions, where the tissues have not
been getting adequate blood flow, you might at first get an
exacerbation of symptoms. The discomfort usually passes in 24 to 48
hours. In the mean time a
painkiller can be used until the
body starts to recover its circulation. Alternatively use the
Magnacollar/Magnaguard for short periods of time at first.
It is essential that the magnets
be positioned in the correct way all magnets have a north and south
pole, the magnets used for Magnacollar and Magnaguard therapy although
very small are extremely strong and if positioned back to front can
have an adverse effect. Our products are individually tested at the
factory stage and again before they are posted. So it is important to
fit the products correctly as they have been designed to be worn.
The power of the magnet is one
of the most basic powers in nature. Magnetism is the force that keeps
order in the galaxy allowing the stars and planets to spin at
It should be noted that today as
we approach the new millennium magnetic therapy is well established in
other countries such as Japan, Russia, China, India, Austria and
Germany. Awareness is now filtering down to the general public in the
UK. Magnets have been used therapeutically to relieve pain and
discomfort for thousands of years, perhaps even longer than
acupuncture, which is two thousand years old.
It is thought that the earth’s
natural magnetic field was far higher in the past 2 to 3 gauss, as
opposed to ˝ gauss today. We live in an environment of wires,
computers, fluorescent lights etc all this creates electronic smog
that further diminishes the earth’s natural magnetic field.
Exposure to the earth’s magnetic
field plays an essential role in our health, a fact clearly
demonstrated when the first astronauts returned to earth sick. Their
illness was soon attributed to lack of magnetism in outer space, and
the problem was soon resolved when NASA placed magnets in their
spacesuits and spaceships.
To understand how magnetic
therapy helps to relieve pain, it may help to look at pain mechanisms
in the body. Pain is transmitted along nerve cells as an electric
signal. A pain signal depolarises a cell. Magnets appear to raise the
depolarisation potential of the cell so that the signal is blocked
from depolarisation, in effect blocking the pain, furthermore the
ability of the nerve to send pain is slowed by a magnetic field. These
phenomena can aid in the relief of pain throughout the body.
Magnets work by normalising pH
the acid alkaline balance, which in turn creates an internal
environment that is conducive to good health. Sick animals regardless
of the disease they have, are almost always in a highly acidic state.
Pathogenic activity loves acidity and the hypoxia (low oxygen) state
it creates. The magnet addresses this issue.
When our blood passes through a
negative magnetic field, we repolarisze each cell. That accelerates
the cell electrical spin. Speeding up electron activity causes cells
to repolarize. This increases capillary activity and circulation, it
carries out toxins and brings in nutrients increasing the bodies
It is not advised that bitches
in whelp wear either a Magnacollar or Magnaguard, as damage could be
caused to the unborn whelps.
There is no problem with you
trying your dog’s collar, but beware if you wear a pacemaker, do not
place it near your heart. Ankles, knees, or wrists are fine.
Magnetic therapy is an
outstanding, non-invasive approach to healing. Mainstream medicine
both veterinary and human probably doesn’t want to acknowledge it
because it often eliminates the need for patients to return for costly
