Choosing the Right Piece of Magnetic Jewelry

Magnetic products on the market today come in a variety of forms. They can be taped to the skin, worn in braces, or slept on in the form of pillows and mattresses, but the most popular form of wearing magnets is in the form of magnetic jewelry.

This is not a new idea. Using magnets for medicinal purposes has been practiced for thousands of years. In fact, it is said that Cleopatra adorned herself with magnetic jewelry to preserve her youthful looks and ward off headaches.

Over the past decade, the use of magnets for a healing purpose has become increasingly popular, especially amongst people who are looking for an alternative to traditional medicine. However the subject does remain controversial. Even though hundreds of people testify to the healing effects of the magnetic jewelry daily.

The most common and popular form of magnetic jewelry is the bracelet. Worn on the wrist, on either arm, it has been shown that it is not just beneficial to the arm but the magnet can be of help to the whole body.

It is advised that the magnet be worn either on or near the pulse point. Another option is an ankle bracelet, with the magnet itself being placed just behind the ankle bone. However, it is advised that you try a few different products to find the best solution for you. Not everyone likes wearing some forms of jewelry, but luckily, magnetic jewelry takes on many different styles and designs so there is sure to be something for everyone.

However there are cases when magnetic jewelry should not be worn. It is understood that you should never use magnets if you have an internal heart pacemaker. The magnets could interfere with the signals of the heart, and this could have serious consequences.

You should not use magnets if you have an internal insulin pump, as the magnets will have an effect on the pump and it will not function as it should. It is also advised that you should not use magnets if you are pregnant. In any instance, if you are unsure about using magnets, it is always a good idea to seek professional medical advice.
