There are two basic types of magnetic bracelets: bracelets that have a magnetic closure that secures them to your wrist, and bracelets that contain magnets that — according to some alternative medicine practitioners — deliver health benefits.
In this entry, we talk about the second type of magnetic bracelets — specifically, high-quality bracelets from Sabona — in terms of how they can help your pharmacy better serve customers.
History of Magnetic Bracelets
According to the “Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine”, magnets have been a part of the healing arts in China since about 200 B.C. Using the natural power of magnetic force, the bracelets work the same today as they did back then, when construction for the Great Wall of China began.
So, exactly how do magnetic bracelets purportedly deliver health benefits? As livestrong.com explains, “In keeping with Chinese medicine, the two poles of the magnet produce diametrically opposing benefits and usually, the negative pole should face the body. This allows the “qi,” or the body’s natural energy paths, to open and flow freely, promoting health.”
All you do is wear the bracelet, and let it work its magic. But, in the absence of in-depth research on the health effects of magnetic bracelets, the question remains: Do they have a positive effect?
One benefit believed from wearing copper bracelets, is that the skin will absorb the copper and in this fashion copper will get into circulation very efficiently, even more than most dietary copper.
What the FDA has to say
As with many other alternative treatments, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t recognize the efficacy of magnetic bracelets, other than to warn against wearing them if you’re pregnant, or you have a pacemaker or another type of electrical implant that a magnet could compromise.
But at a time when the green movement underpins a resurgence of interest in alternative medicine, many patients are interested in trying out low-risk, alternative therapies on their own, in hopes of avoiding medical bills and unwanted side effects that come with some prescription drugs.
