Magnetic Therapy is a powerful therapy to treat many health related problems.So, when you opt for magnetic therapy, you should know the cares and precautions to be taken, in order to gain maximum benefits and to avoid unwanted reactions.
Precautions to be taken during Magnetic Therapy:
- Do not take any cold drinks or eatables during or after the application of magnets, as they may unnecessarily dampen the effect of heat produced during such application.
- Do not take a cold bath immediately after the application for at least an hour.
- Avoid use of magnets immediately after a full meal at least for two hours. There can be a sensation of nausea or vomiting if magnets are applied immediately after a meal.
- Avoid using medium-power magnets on delicate parts like brain, heart or eyes. Ceramic magnets are suitable for application to these organs for not more than 15 minutes.
- Pregnant women should not apply strong magnets of SEM or SUM type, as these may sometimes cause abortion, especially if two similar poles such as north poles or south poles are used simultaneously.
- Avoid using medium-power magnets and ceramic directly over the womb.
- Magnetized water as a recommended medication in various diseases should be taken in moderate doses. It should not be taken like plain water.
- Keep the magnets with a suitable keeper to avoid loss of magnetism.
- Do not use a magnetic bed or magnets on your chest if wearing a pacemaker or defibrillator. A magnet within a few inches of these instruments can interrupt their function.
- Do not use a magnetic bed for 24 hours daily in case of medication. This could suppress your adrenal glands, resulting in slow energy recovery.
- Do not use magnets on the abdomen for 60 – 90 minutes following meals. This causes peristalsis.
- Do not use positive magnetic energy on a prolonged basis unless under medical supervision.
These are some basic information about the care to be taken during magnetic therapy. After the therapy, donâ€™t forget to ask your therapist about the precautions to be taken to avoid unnecessary problems or risks.
