Gout is an exquisitely painful form of arthritis caused by uric acid crystals. Normally uric acid stays dissolved in the blood and most (70%) is filtered out and flushed from the body via the kidneys. In some people, however, uric acid crystallises out in certain joints or soft tissues, and its needle-like crystals cause debilitating inflammation, with redness, pain and swelling.
Gout is becoming more common, and affects around 1 in 40 people, of whom the majority are male. There is also a strong hereditary link. Some people with high levels of uric acid do not develop gout, and some people with low levels do. If you have inherited a tendency towards gout, magnetic therapy can help to support your medical treatment.
Although there are no clinical trials involving gout, anecdotal evidence supports its use, and there is research to show that magnetic therapy can improve painful joints. Magnetic therapy stimulates the circulation, reduces pain, and promotes the healing of inflamed joints.
“I have used magnetic therapy for over twenty years, and found personal benefit from wearing a Trion:Z bracelet that generates both a magnetic field and negative ions. Although many people like to rubbish the use of these innovative approaches for well-being, I urge you to try it for yourself and form a genuine opinion without jumping to a knee-jerk conclusion.” – Dr Sarah Brewer ,
