We all enjoy our creature comforts of modern convenience. Some of them we could not imagine living without. But a lot of the electrical appliances produce powerful electrical fields which emit harmful currents that build up over prolonged exposure causing ill health and other negative effects.
Some say this could be a direct cause of cancer and I would imagine most of us are familiar with the discovery about cell phones and the connection to brain cancer. The story behind this story however is inconclusive and to be perfectly honest I have no opinion on this because I simply have no idea one way or the other. I was always taught, ‘If you don’t know, don’t say so.’ Like I said the evidence is all inconclusive.
What I do know and what many professional golfers know too, is that magnet therapy does work to reduce pain. But beyond that there is significant findings that point to a definite protection from these harmful energy fields. It acts like a repellent.
We are over exposed to all kinds of electric energy fields that are constantly emitted from so many appliances, telephone wires, electric power stations, cell phone towers and so much more. Magnetic Therapy Offers Protection from prolonged exposure to these harmful electric energy Fields. So not only does Magnet therapy relieve pain it also protects you from harmful energy noise reducing risks to your health.
To be perfectly honest I did not even know we were surrounded by harmful energies putting off powerful electric and magnetic fields. When you think about it though, it does make a lot of sense. Scientists believe that our body goes through cellular regeneration and repairs itself while we sleep. It is said that these electric and magnetic fields are damaging to this delicate procedure and interferes with the process. Read the rest of this entry »
Ice is an important and natural treatment with many advantages. It is an effective painkiller which can be applied to the injured area, giving instant relief. Ice also prevents excess swelling or inflammation developing. This helps to restore full mobility faster and prevents scar tissue formation, helping an injury to heal up to 75% quicker.
How injury causes inflammation
Ligaments, muscles and tendons have elastic properties due to a protein called collagen. If they are over-stretched (such as a sprain during exercise, or because of an accident), the collagen and local blood vessels tear. Blood and fluid then escapes into the spaces among the injured fibres, resulting in a build-up of fluid. The body releases histamine to help bring nutrients to repair the tissues, which makes the blood vessels dilate even further. Unfortunately, this creates an excess inflammation or swelling as the fluid around the injury stagnates. Because the blood circulation is hampered, toxins are released due to lack of oxygen. This results in pain and (often) further muscle spasm and scar tissue soon starts to form. The excess inflammation must be cleared from the site of injury before the toxins can be removed and nutrients can return, allowing the healing process to begin properly. (Inflammation may be visible on the surface of the skin as a swollen bruised area, but will not show if it is deep inside the body.)
How Ice Treatment (Cryotherapy) works on an injury
As soon as inflammation starts, ice treatment can be highly effective. By decreasing the flow of fluid into the injured tissues, it allows the blood to circulate, which helps to remove the toxins. Fresh oxygen is able to reach the injury and the release of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation slows down. Nutrients reach the torn fibres and help to repair the area.
