Jewelry, which works to manipulate the energy frequencies inside the human body, has existed since the 1980s. There have been numerous studies conducted to understand whether these work or is it just a placebo effect. In one study, researchers had concluded that the bracelets worn by many did nothing more than providing the wearer with a mental boost. In short, if someone has a hidden talent inside them, then the positive bracelet would work to bring it out with positive results.
Often, there have been a lot of questions thrown at how the magnetic bracelets work to help a person control specific medical ailments. In this blog, we will help you know both sides of the coin, .i.e. whether the positive bracelets do bring any reasonable change in the person wearing them or is just plain rumor.
The Magnetic Therapy
As per the American Cancer Society (ACS), magnetic therapy is useful for reducing pain and other ailments in different parts of the body. The promoters of positive bracelets claim that the magnetic bracelets and rings work, as specific cells and tissues in the body emit electromagnetic impulses. In short, the energy from these bracelets works to correct the imbalance in the body and maintain good health.
Magnetic therapy has proven useful to decrease migraine headache, repair damaged bones, improve circulation, and even cure cancer. But, the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) clearly states that these bracelets do not have any medicinal value.
The Static Magnets
Magnetic therapy also includes the use of metal magnets fixed on bracelets and other jewelry. One wears these for a different amount of time depending on the ailment for which the person is receiving the treatment. The length of the procedure varies from a few hours to some weeks. The ACS has also stated that the majority of bracelets, especially magnetic ones sold are known as static or constant magnets as the magnetic field is stationary.
The magnetic bracelets are known to have therapeutic value, as this influence the blood flow on the wrist arteries. The magnetism emitted from the bracelet increases the electrical conductivity of the blood and increases the number of ions. The ionization process helps to improve the blood flow.
Those supporting positive bracelets and other types of bracelets believe that the healing powers of magnet speed up the metabolism and reduce the presence of acids in the body. However, the American Cancer Society states that cancer cells can never live in an environment where the amount of acid is low. It is likely that magnetic therapy can help in reducing the spread of rumors. They also maintain that the magnetic field can easily adjust nerve impulses, kill fatty deposits on artery walls, and help boost the emotional well-being of the individual.
What the Manufacturers Claim
The majority of the manufacturers promoting the bracelets claim that these have a holographic technology. These holograms resonate at the same frequency of the body cells, which enhances the performance of the body.
Some manufacturers claim that the positive bracelet contains negative ion power, which offers health benefits. When the wearer inhales these ions, they enter the bloodstream and help in improving the working of the body.
The Placebo Effect
One sure way through which these bracelets work and enhance the performance and health of the wearer is through the placebo effect. The placebo effect is generated by a placebo treatment, which is not caused by the placebo. It includes the person’s belief that the bracelet would produce positive results, which will lead them to work harder. As they try harder, they end up being better than their previous self is. In the end, they credit the natural bracelet for success. However, it is nothing more than the placebo effect at work.
