Magnets have been used to aid in healing for centuries and modern doctors use them to promote healing when broken bones don’t heal well on their own. How do magnets help? One possibility is through the perineural system.
What is the Perineural System?
The perineural system is the system of connective tissue that surrounds each nerve fiber and runs throughout the body wherever there are nerves. Scientists have found that this connective tissue carries a current of its own, separate from the signals passing through the nerves that it surrounds. They call this current a “current of injury” because it is generated at the site of the injury and continues until the wound is healed. It tells the body where the injury is and how bad it is so that the body can send the proper response to deal with the problem.
How Do Magnets Help?
The perineural system carries a semiconductor current, like the current that flows through the computer you’re reading this on, and is sensitive to magnetic fields. When an injury is slow to heal, the problem could be that the connective tissue is not able to generate and maintain the “current of injury”. There could also be a block in the system so that the signal doesn’t reach everywhere that it needs to go, similar to the energetic blocks that an acupuncturist might treat.
By applying a magnet or magnetic field to an injury, the magnetic field might stimulate or strengthen the perineural system to kick-start the healing process. I believe this is what happens when a doctor applies a pulsed electromagnetic field device to a broken bone. In our house, we use small magnets to aid in healing the small cuts and bruises that our kids may get while playing.
I believe there are many ways in which magnets help to stimulate and balance the body. Kick-starting the healing process by stimulating the perineural system is one way in which magnetic fields help the body to heal.
Disclaimers and Disclosures
I am a massage therapist and use magnets with my clients and my family. I also sell magnets through my network marketing business. I am not a doctor and do not diagnose conditions or prescribe magnets for any particular condition. The science that I mention in this article comes from James L. Oschman’s book Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis.
