Magnetic therapy is one form of alternative health treatment which I consider rather interesting. Basically what it is about is how magnetic fields have shown to have a beneficial effect on our health.

There are several ways how magnetic therapy today can be done. Your alternative health practitioner may use special devices that produce magnetic fields; those are then used to stimulate certain areas on the body quite comparable to acupressure or acupuncture.

The magnets built into this type of jewellery can then help say if you have arthritis or some other health problem.

In addition to jewellery that uses magnets that can provide various benefits, another sort of jewellery is also said to be beneficial and this is ionic jewellery.

Ionic jewellery is often made from certain precious gems that have a natural ability to create negative ions. Pretty much like as is the case with magnetic fields, negative ions have scientifically be shown to have a variety of benefits.

Some say that the negative ions from those power bands can also help with physical ailments and pains while others point out that they are very good for lifting energy levels or helping with problems like insomnia.

Recently, a new type of jewellery can be seen that combines the both things, magnetic therapy and negative ions. This is jewellery that has magnets built in but will also create negative ions. In other words, with this jewellery you’ll get the best of both worlds, magnetic therapy and the benefits of negative ions.
