Our Magnetic Underlay is proudly Australian made here on the Gold Coast. With a comprehensive range Magnetic Underlay and Magnetic Supports we have your whole body covered. Without telling you my wife’s age (I would be in trouble), Jannese was selling magnetic pillows with her family business at the Sydney Royal Easter show even in her early teens. So she has a wealth of experience in this field that we can pass on to you the customer. I suggest you take some time to watch a number of the videos on our magnetic therapy range.
Magnetic Underlay's or magnetic mattress pads and pillows have been around for some decades now and the benefits of Magnetic bedding, particularly magnetic underlay’s has been seen to assist aches and pains. When it comes to therapeutic benefits of magnets, we can hopefully help you with everything you need to know.
Studies have indicated that multiple benefits such as pain relief and restful sleep, as I will describe in some research studies. How do they work? Magnets embedded in the magnetic underlay and pillows may be several inches from the body's surface, and their relationship to any specific acupuncture sites keeps changing. Their effectiveness suggests that benefits do not depend on precise placement or field strength, which falls off with the square of the distance from the patient. The reason why the underlay's works so well is because of the much greater number of magnets used as well as their stronger gauss strengths. Keep in mind it is the accumulation of all the magnets in one place (e.g. my Queen Underlay has 400 magnets, 480 including the pillow count) thus, these factors may overcome the lack of skin contact and the lack of local acupuncture sitting.
Insomnia and other sleep disorders:
Restful sleep is vital to health, to allow the body to recuperation time after the days many stressors. A magnetized underlay pad helps to promote a restful sleep. (Dr Lawrence Author Pain Cure Alternative himself sleeps on one). The muscle relaxing effects are only part of the benefit, as you can imagine now that you have learned how magnetism stimulates healing and homeostasis. Without claiming that it has been validated, here is one foreign report:
- A double blind clinical study was done in Japan in 1990 with magnetized mattress pads in three hospitals.
- The 431 subjects were tested and observed closely for any side effects. The magnetic pads used 104 magnets, each of them 750-950 gauss strength.
- More that 70% of the patients had results within five days.
- The improvements in back and lower back pain ranged from 68.49 to 92.04%
- The improvements in lower limb pain from 66.82 to 97.47%
- The improvements in insomnia from 76.82 to 94.98%
- The improvements in Fatigue from 70.64 to 94.98%
These remarkable ranges of improvements and in an amazingly short time. Reportedly there were no side effects. (Source Dr. Kazup Shimodair, Tokyo Communications Hospital.)
(It should also be noted that the magnetic experience queen underlay has 400 x 1200 gauss magnets, substantially superior to the pads used in tests.
To be more specific, I received an inspection report dated the 5 November 2009 from my raw magnet supplier indicated that the North Side of the 18 x 5 millimetre diameter magnets used in my magnetic underlay had an average surface strength of 1214.5 gauss.
I use all North Facing Magnets in my magnetic underlay
Magnetic Underlay and Fibromyalgia
Dr Agatha Cobert from Newton Centre, Massachusetts, and affiliated with Tufts University, gave the first report of a just completed study on the effect of the magnetic underlay on Fibromyalgia. This is a mysterious pain condition with no clear cause that hits seven times more woman than men. Most patients go from Doctor to Doctor, and take test after test, even before getting the correct diagnosis. Then there is the problem of getting relief. The list of symptoms is a long one, headed by pains and rigid muscles, and often including stiffness, migraine headache, trouble sleeping, pervasive fatigue, depression, and gastric disorders. There are several "tender points". Neurotransmitters are involved in Fibromyalgia, and as you have learned, nerves transmit pain signals. The requirements to confirm the diagnosis, as Dr Colbert noted, are chronic pain present for longer than three months, both above and below the waist, and at least eighteen tender or trigger points. To date there are not satisfactory treatments, though trials have been done on drugs.
In the test started in March 1997, approved by Tuffs Medical School, the question was: Does sleeping on magnetic mattresses influence the pain and sleep disturbances seen in Fibromyalgia? The thirty subjects were not allowed any medications or other new treatments during the study. The doctors in the study did not know which mattresses (some had not magnets) went to which patients. Using a questionnaire, the patients marked the changes in their symptoms, the number of tender points, and so on. The point count in the magnetic group went way down, other pain symptoms went down, and the sleep pattern improved. The functional ability was not that significantly changed.
The patients also kept a daily record and were able to call in twenty four hours a day. A biostatistician on the project who works for the NIH was extremely sceptical in the beginning, then stated that the statistical differences in pain and sleep left no doubt.
The patients who were on the sham mattresses were given an opportunity to try the real ones, and a month or two later all patients were given the opportunity to buy the mattresses or return them. All the sham mattresses were sent back, but all the magnetic mattresses except one were purchased by the patients.
