Magneto Therapy.

Magnets exert a powerful attraction on the iron content in the blood, penetrating the outer layers of skin, muscle and fatty tissue to the capillaries that feed directly into the bloodstream. By attracting iron and perhaps other inorganic molecules to a diseased area, circulation is increased. This is enhanced by the increase of oxygen and other vital nutrients to the affected site that assists in healing. The combined effect is regulating the PH of the cells and tissues, balancing, ionizing and oxygenating them and generally relieving congestion and pain by improving blood circulation. Magnets are widely used to help patients suffering from headaches (including migraines), constipation, bronchitis, hypertension, hemorrhoids, glaucoma, and many other serious diseases. One of the most common causes for pain is ‘edema’, which results as a fluid build-up in the cells or in the inter-cellular spaces. When a magnet is placed on the limb above the edema, it helps pull the fluid out of the affected limb and eases out the pain. Sometimes fluid is trapped inside a nerve sheath or a closed space resulting into inflammation or infection of that portion of the body. Application of magnetic field to such areas pulls the fluid out of the cells – thus relieving the pain. If the fluid is trapped in a closed space, the pain may increase initially when the magnet is applied. In such a situation, treat the affected area up to tolerance. Remove the magnet when pain increases, and re-apply it as soon as the pain subsides. In due course tolerance will increase as the inflammation or infection subsides. Injury occurring in a certain part of the body can generate pain in some other parts also. This is known as referred pain. Scar formations on the skin or inside the skin are some of the potent areas for referred pain. Injury and scar tissues maintain a positive magnetic field, which leads to a compromised and disordered metabolism – often culminating into pain. Exposing such areas to a magnetic field restores the disordered metabo

Hi, I m a 55 yr old white female, 5`4 , 180 lbs. I had childhood asthma and bronchitis, and were given steroids frequently. I seemed to grow out of it at age 17. During the last 14 yrs I ve developed Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue, RA, for 14 months my SED rate stayed at 53-108 and they could not find out why, Cushing s Syndrome, neuropathy of the feet, and most importantly - Hypogammagobulinemia. I rec d IGG iv s monthly for 4 yrs, then lost insurance 6 yrs. ago. I m disabled and on Medicare, I haven t rec d IV s in 6 yrs. During that time I ve had pneumonia 17 times, once was septic pneumonia, constant sinus problems, PCP infection and a rare form of arthritis associated with the hypo (the Dr. couldn t tell me the name of it). I have contacted Medicare, foundations and pharm companies trying to get help to start treatment again. Reaching out to any possible help has been met with apathy and no one would try to point me in the right direction. I m really worried and would like to know my chances of surviving if I can t get the IGG treatments. Thank you very much for your time.

I recently was diagnosed with bronchitis. I was given antibiotics for it and I have been taking them for about three days. The period of time (2 weeks) I suffered from the symptoms of the bronchitis without going to the doctor included the development of a whooshing or rushing sound in my left ear. I ve been looking this symptom up and I was wondering whether or not it was pulsatile tinnitus and if this symptom is common with upper respiratory tract infection.
