The Use of Magnets
The use of magnets in medical sciences is not new, about 2,000 years before acupuncture was practiced (about 6,000 years ago) magnetic field therapy was used to treat disease with energy in China. At that time one fitted natural magnetic rocks into shoes, and through movement when walking, electrical currents were created and permeated into human tissue. Hippocrates used magnetic stones for healing purposes and Paracelsus made healing with magnets a permanent element in his medical practice.
