Health benefits of magnets Login/Join

Do any of you have experiences with using magnets to help with ailments? We use to use special blankets on the expensive horses that had magnets in them. I had a waist wrap that had magnets in it when I was a teenager recovering from cracked ribs.
I helped an older gentleman that had magnet socks & he loves them. Have any of you tried them? Did they help? What brand? I am thinking of getting my dog a bed with them.

Zero.
Absolutely zero.

Crystals and karma alignments have the same effect.

There are no health benefits to magnets. None. Zero. Zilch. It is quackery.

Any perceived benefit is placebo.

See, I figure a lot of the benefits have to do with the placebo effect, but I'm in the camp of the mind is a powerful tool & it does no harm. My thing is that my dog isn't going to have the placebo effect because even if I tell him it's gonna make him feel like a young pup again, he doesn't really have a clue what I'm talking about.
I think the wrap I had as a teenager helped mainly because of the compression value, but again, the magnets wouldn't have hurt anyway so no harm.

Didn't mean to invalidate your experience. If you think they do something, by all means continue.

My girlfriend was asking about "Magnetized Water". I get a lot of pseudo science questions from her.

No.

Yes placebos work, magnets don't.

The magnets only work if you use them with copper socks or bracelets. Wink

Other than believing they will work, I can't see any benefits. For someone suffering from chronic pain, say, from arthritis, this is not to be completely discounted. The human mind has a way of making things happen when it really wants to. But even this benefit is lost on animals, which don't think this way.

They are an aid to peaceful coexistence. Your sweetie puts important stuff on the fridge for you to note WITH MAGNETS, like a party or gathering four months in the future. Gives you plenty of time to psyche yourself up for the event.

Essential oils, homeopathy, astrology, chiropractors, and magnets.

I think the healing salt cave in the local office park closed recently, so there's hope for humanity.

An article on the world's most powerful magnet. The article finishes with a statement that researchers have not found a benefit to wearable magnets.

A sockful of nickel-cobalt magnets can be an attractive alternative to a sockful of marbles in a free-for-all - mainly due to the many sharp corners, but apart from that, my belief in magnetic healing is non-existent.
