Fibromyalgia is a rather elusive disease characterized by widespread muscular and myofascial aches and pains. The most common sites are the back, shoulders and the joints, accompanied by pain and stiffness. Studies now show that those with the disease are experiencing drug free pain relief by using magnetic therapy to block pain receptors.
"Approximately 5 percent of the population is affected with this disease. The exact etiology is not exactly known, however most physicians agree that the fibromyalgia patient experiences pain amplification due to abnormal sensory processing in the central nervous system," states Dr. Bakst. "It is here that the use of magnetic therapy may well have its beneficial salutary effect."
The pain that people with fibromyalgia experience is truly profound and widespread. It is accompanied by muscular aching, numbness, tingling and burning. It affects the sleep pattern leading to mental fatigue, anxiety and stress. Many patients turn to over the counter medications and steroids to help alleviate the symptoms of the disease. Stronger drugs, antidepressants and local injections are other medications sought to deal with severe and widespread pain.
"Since the problem is one of distorted sensory processing we have been led to investigate the use of magnets for this pain. The use of magnetic therapy is a drug free means of alleviating this pain," states Dr. Bakst. "By using magnets with a depth of field, you can effectuate the nerve impulses. The way magnets work is rather complex. Basically, the outside of a nerve is coated with magnetically positively charged ions. When the painful stimulus occurs, these ions pour into the interior of the nerve thereby initiating the nerve impulse, which then travels to the brain. Our products place a huge negative magnetic field over these positive ions. The negative magnetic field will impede the flow of these positive charges and will stop the flow of these magnetically charged particles to the brain, which is a means of treating the painful stimulus with a medication free modality," Bakst explains.
According to Dr. Bakst, two clinical studies prove the effectiveness of using magnetic mattress pads for the treatment of pain of Fibromyalgia. "Based on these studies, we recommend a complete system for the treatment of and the alleviation of pain and tenderness due to Fibromyalgia. We recommend our magnet mattress pad in addition to other products such as our magnetic chair pad, magnetic back belt and magnetic insoles to continue the effects of the magnetic alleviation of the pain impulse."
Dr. Bakst stresses that there is no such thing as pain if the impulse does not reach the brain. Using highly powerful negative magnetic fields has been demonstrated to arrest the pain in 80 to 90 percent of patients with this affliction. Anyone suffering from Fibromyalgia is encouraged to visit the Dr. Bakst website to find out more about this drug free pain relief alternative.
