The history of magnetism has been written by the earth itself. The earth's strong magnetic field has a direct influence on all life. This is associated with the electromagnetic vibrations of atoms, which form the core of every living being.
This influence was recognised extremely early on in human history, and the therapeutic properties of magnets were used for healing purposes.
Per- Christian civilisations, such as the Chinese, used magnetic stones in conjunction with acupuncture points in order to remedy imbalances in the human body, and allow the "Chi", or life energy to flow freely once again.
Hieroglyphs from Ancient Egypt also show magnetic therapy was indispensable. The legendary Cleopatra is said to have worn a magnetic amulet to heal a range of illnesses, as well as to preserve her beauty and youth looks.
Aristotle's records document magnetic healing procedures, and there are further detailed findings from the middle ages to the present day.
Nowadays even mainstream medicine is intensively studying the effects of magnets. For example, in 1994 the International Institute for Health in the USA created the new term "Biofield" and "Biomagnetism". Biofield research focuses on the almost imperceptible magnetic field energies which pervade the human organism. The energies revitalise the human body keeping it in "full swing" thus ensuring that we feel healthy and full of life. An imbalance in the Biofield results in tiredness, or even exhaustion and illness. Feelings of stress, anger, tension and worry also have an electric charge which can have a negative influence on the body's sensitive magnetic field.
This knowledge has given a fairly self-evident conclusion: Wearing magnets has a decisive effect on the promotion of our own well-being! The step from this idea to the invention of magnetic accessories was a small, yet a decisive one.
There are some interesting recent studies on using magnets with women experiencing the symptoms of menopause.
It is estimated that 8 out of 10 women in the UK experience symptoms leading up to the menopause. Of these, 45% find their symptoms difficult to deal with so you are not alone!
