When NOT to use magnetic bracelet


Testimonies on the positive effects of magnetic bracelets to the body are sure to draw you in. But unfortunately, magnetic therapy is not for everyone. While these magnets have the power to heal, improve blood circulation, speed up cellular metabolism, they are not wanted on some occasions.

Treat this blogpost as an early warning for those planning to buy magnetic bracelets. We have enumerated below who should stay away from healing magnets.

Anyone with a pacemaker or defibrillator

This tiny box surgically implanted in the chest helps those with abnormal heartbeats regulate their heart rhythm. Thus, if this device suddenly stops working , the heart may stop beating and lead to death. As we have tackled in our previous blogpost, the static magnetic fields that magnetic bracelets emit can interfere with the electrical pulses that these devices send in order for the heart to function normally.

Those who have pacemakers in them should likewise not get too close with anyone wearing magnetic accessories like pendants and bracelets.

Anyone with insulin pump

Those suffering diabetes found a lifesaver through insulin pump. It is a device, as small as a mobile phone, that injects insulin into the body when needed. Pumping of insulin can be programmed with the device. Acting like a pancreas, it gives the body the right amount of insulin it needs.

Just like a pacemaker, magnetic bracelets and other accessories fitted with stones and minerals with magnetic properties can slow down, if not stop, the operation of an insulin pump.

Anyone with open wounds

The increased viscosity of the blood can potentially damage blood vessels and put anyone at risk of  heart attacks. Magnets reverse the blood’s viscosity and decrease the stickiness of the blood’s platelet. Using magnetic bracelets spares one with heart diseases from taking drugs which have negative side effects.

However, on one side, lowering he blood’s viscosity hampers the clotting process, or the body’s natural ability to heal wounds.

Pregnant women

We always find it best to err on the side of caution. Many proponents of magnetic bracelets advise women not to use magnetic bracelet or any accessories possessing magnetic materials. The magnetic fields that magnets emit stimulates new cell growth.

While there is not proof yet on the harm that it poses to a pregnant woman and her baby, the likelihood of new cellular growth in a fetus increases. An abnormal cellular growth is not good for the expectant mother or for the baby. It is, thus, advisable for pregnant women to avoid magnetic bracelet.

Anyone who are undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy

Anyone undergoing these treatments must avoid magnets with higher Gauss for the same reason as in pregnancy. Magnets promote cellular growth and it reverses the aim of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which is to stunt and stop the growth of cancerous cells. There are, however, some studies on the potential use of magnets in treating cancer.

Makers of magnetic bracelets and healing magnets state the contraindications in their online advertisements. In fact, award-winning QuanThor tells its would-be customers the contraindications. It advices pregnant women, those with pacemaker, defibrillator, insulin pump and other implanted electro-medical devices and those who got a localized cortisone shot within the last two weeks not to wear magnetic bracelets or receive any magnetic therapy in general.

Pacemakers and magnetic bracelets don’t go along together. Those relying on pacemakers should avoid using magnetic bracelet.
