Fact: According to the April 2003 New England Journal of Medicine, 1 in 4 people currently experience side-effects from prescription drugs, and when these side-effects surface, most doctors fail to act. This is sounding an alarm to the millions of Americans who take prescription drugs each year. They are looking for safe and natural alternatives with little to no side effects. Savvy Americans are taking responsibility and turning to the internet to do research looking for health options and solutions. Often times, they become more informed than their doctors. In the process, they are learning about a new trend for preventative health...pulsed magnetic fields for self-treatment right at home. Where modern medicine in America falls short is prevention. What consumers are finding is that pulsed magnetic fields are "pure prevention" before problems even start.
Pulsed magnetic fields prevent and manage stress reactions in the body. Once a stress reaction occurs, it can take hours, even days to recover. Though, mild chronic daily stress causes untold damage to humans, research has shown that pulsed magnetic fields produce a number of general anti-stress changes in the body, both to ward off stress, that is, create stress resistance, and to decrease the hormonal, immune, neurologic, soft tissue, cardiac, vascular, low pH and low-oxygen damage caused by stress. Since the effects of stress are also cumulative, a daily routine of reducing the physiologic response becomes necessary to ward off long-term damage and ensuing physical problems like irritability, headaches, hypertension, gastritis, arrhythmias, depression, fatigue, immune deficiencies, etc.
Another consideration is that the United States spends much more on health care than other industrialized countries, yet does not seem to get any more benefits from the increased spending, according to research. According to experts, it needs to be determined whether Americans‚ increased spending on health care translates into more resources for patients or simply higher income for health care providers. However, according to the report Americans seem to be getting fewer real resources than people in other industrialized countries. Health Affairs 2003;22:89-105 This translates to the need for other health solutions that are lest costly and more effective. Fifteen minutes of full body application of pulsed magnetic fields seems to be the new preference of choice for self-care.
Pulsed magnetic fields have already been in use in Europe for at least 30 years. What has been found with the ongoing use of pulsed magnetic fields to the body is an induction of electrons, which creates a natural resonance that the body and its cells recognize and work to maintain. Based on extensive research, this new health concept is now being introduced into the United States and Canada with a new home health appliance called Magnopro.
Questions abound with the introduction of this novel health technology that consists of a full body mattress, a small pillow and control panel that is plugged into a wall socket.
"How do pulsed magnetic fields work?"
The human body is electro-magnetic in nature. We all know the brain and nervous system are electrical. By adding a balancing charge to your cells, your lifestyle improves because your cells are calibrated. Thus, with continued use you will find you feel more vital because your cells are better utilizing the water, food and air you take in. Increased elimination of waste byproducts also occur.
"I want to see real improvement with stress relief. How soon will I see results and what changes might I expect to see?"
Some people see immediate relaxation, deepened and clearer breathing, relief from discomfort of one type or another, and better sleep that night. Some people need a few days to a few weeks to feel more energy, have body aches go away and see an improvement in their sleep.
"Is the Magnopro like a massage and does it affect my muscles?"
Pulsed magnetic fields are similar to a massage in that they do increase blood flow and relax muscles. The results of pulsed magnetic fields are more profound since electro-magnetic balancing occurs in the body's cells.
"Can you feel pulsing while lying on the mat?"
No, the magnetic field is so gentle and low that most people cannot detect it.
"How much time each day do I use the Magnopro? Do I sleep on it?"
No, you do not sleep on the Magnopro. One fifteen-minute treatment upon rising or after work is all you need. For best results, using the Magnopro again before bedtime will assist in sleep and regenerating a tired stressed body.
"I am a busy person and have a full schedule. How will I fit using the Magnopro into my daily routine?"
Use the Magnopro on a bed or in a chair while watching TV, opening the mail, talking on the phone, holding a loved-one, reading, filing your nails or simply relaxing!
"Are there any contraindications?"
People with severe mycosis or epilepsy should consult a doctor before use. It is not recommended for use by pregnant women or by people with heart pacemakers.
"Is this product safe?"
Yes, it can be used safely on children, animals and adults of all ages. Pulsed magnetic fields are noninvasive and nontoxic, which makes them ideal for gradual body rebalancing.
"Will I experience any side effects?"
There are no undesirable side effects. If a dull headache, increased thirst, slight fatigue and achy muscles are initially experienced, persist with increased water intake. These symptoms will clear when toxics have released from the body.
"Would using Magnopro lower my overall health care costs?"
Yes, ongoing lifetime use of pulsed magnetic fields lowers stress levels in the body. This can prevent disease before it starts. Taking this kind of preventative approach will lower health care costs overall by reducing the need for more costly treatments such as medication or surgery.
