Alternative medicine is a broad term that refers to health-oriented treatments that don’t necessarily utilize medications. Magnet therapy falls under this category, since it is non-invasive, and also a treatment that can be done in the comfort of your own home. With magnetic theory, users are operating on the theory that the strong magnetic fields created by magnets can lead to an increase in blood circulation, which has the potential to help with cell growth, renewal, and health.
Some doctors recommend magnetic therapy, some are neutral about it, and some have never heard of it. If you’re considering it for the treatment of a physical or mental condition, check with your doctor before starting any new treatment or stopping a current one. But, it’s a pretty safe assumption that magnetic therapy in most cases won’t hurt , and it just may help.
