What is ‘Magnetic Therapy’? Put simply, it is the use of magnets to treat or ease the symptoms of various diseases and conditions, including pain.

There are excellent articles on the Internet explaining and debunking magnetic therapy and we will provide links to some of these at the end of this essay. However we don’t wish to just restate this information, so the main focus of this essay will be to explore some ‘what if’ scenarios. What if magnetic therapy really did work the way magnetic therapy proponents say it does? How would our bodies really react?

While these scenarios are no doubt obvious to those that investigate and subsequently criticise magnet therapy, those that purchase magnetic products seldom think too much about the ‘science’ claims. But by using some basic science and logic anyone can quickly see that magnetic therapy just couldn’t work the way they say it does.

Although we’ll mainly refer to ‘Magnet Therapy’ in this essay, ‘healing with magnets’, ‘biomagnetic therapy’, ‘bio-magnetics’ and ‘bioelectromagnetic therapy’ are some of the other names given to this scam.

Do they really work or are they just a scam, a waste of money?

No, they don’t work. It’s a scam. Magnet Therapy From Wikipedia
