Stress is an inevitable and unavoidable part of everyday modern life. Work deadlines, financial worries, relationship issues, health concerns, and the 24/7 connectedness of always-on devices keep our brains in a constant state of fight-or-flight response. While we cannot eliminate all stress from our hectic lives, it is vital we utilize healthy coping strategies when we feel overwhelmed. Unmanaged chronic stress can seriously impact both our mental and physical health.
When we experience events or thoughts perceived as threats, our brains activate the sympathetic nervous system, flooding our bodies with stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline that lead to the following:
- Our hearts beating faster
- Breathing more rapidly
- Muscles getting tensed up
- Rising blood pressure, etc
This prepares us to fight against or flee from danger. However, persistent activation of the body’s stress response causes wear and tear on our systems, ultimately exhausting our capacity to bounce back when yet another stressor comes along.
Can stress cause headaches?
One of the most common physical manifestations of long-term unmitigated stress is persistent tension headaches and migraines. Stress activates the muscles in the neck, jaw, shoulders, and scalp to tighten and contract. This sustained contraction restricts blood flow and oxygen to the muscles themselves and triggers painful spasms.
For those prone to migraines, stress also causes blood vessels in the brain to constrict and then expand, sparking debilitating head pain. Additional stress-related symptoms like insomnia, teeth grinding, anxiety, irritability, nausea, and fatigue frequently accompany these headaches.
How is stress treated conventionally?
Doctors conventionally treat stress headaches with varying degrees of effectiveness.
- Over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can temporarily dull muscle contraction pain but carry risks of gastrointestinal bleeding or liver damage with sustained high use.
- For migraine sufferers, prescription abortive or preventive medications often come with side effects like drowsiness, nausea, and constipation.
- Pain management without addressing stress reduction is not getting to the root cause behind tension headaches or migraines.
Seeking out relaxing hobbies, getting regular exercise, practicing mindfulness meditation, improving sleep quality, and learning cognitive restructuring techniques can help lower stress hormone levels. However, when lifestyles overwhelmingly promote constant sympathetic nervous system activation, biology sometimes needs a helping hand to regain healthy equilibrium. This is where innovative biomagnetic stress relief therapies are providing drug-free relief.
Biomagnetism uses medium to high-intensity therapeutic grade magnets of varying sizes and electromagnetic polarities to detect and correct pH, cellular metabolism, and electromagnetic imbalances within our bodies brought on by stress. Through biomagnetism’s kinesiology or muscle testing, accredited biomagnetism therapists first conduct a thorough search for points of abnormal acidity or alkalinity. The complex physiology-biophysics relationship between electromagnetic poles and pH helps explain why acid-alkaline imbalance causes diseases, especially chronic stress.
How does an accredited biomagnetism therapist identify stress and heal it?
Stress triggers our bodies to produce excessive acidity, altering our inner electromagnetic state away from homeostasis. You can think of homeostasis as a state of equilibrium, where the pH of the body stays somewhere between 7.35 and 7.40, indicating balance inside the body and optimal functioning of its organs and systems. If the figure goes below 7.35, it means that the body is acidic, and if it is higher than 7.40, then it indicates higher alkalinity. Both these states indicate imbalance, and such states leave the body vulnerable to pathogens or other diseases.
A biomagnetism therapist, after identifying imbalances and their corresponding biomagnetic pairs, places pairs of medium-strength stationary and movable neodymium biomagnets on either side of the targeted treatment points. These magnets rebalance abnormal pH levels by emitting reversed polarity electromagnetic energy back into the cells. This serves to recharge cellular electromagnetic function just as a jump start resuscitates a drained car battery.
Scientific medical research indicates positive patient outcomes from biomagnetic therapy for multiple stress-induced conditions like inflammation, headaches, fatigue, and mood changes. Patients self-reported lower stress levels after their biomagnetic sessions, indicating this treatment directly targets the sympathetic nervous system.
FAQs About Biomagnetic Pair Therapy & Stress:
Q1: Does biomagnetic therapy work to reduce stress?
Biomagnetic therapy works by using magnets to balance pH and electromagnetic energy in the body that gets disrupted by stress. The magnets help relax tense muscles, regulate nerve signaling, and recharge cellular function to directly reduce the body’s fight-or-flight stress response. This brings the body back into homeostasis or acid-base balance.
Q2: What can I expect during a biomagnetism session?
During a typical session, an accredited biomagnetism therapist will conduct kinesiology or muscle testing on your body to detect areas of abnormal acidity or alkalinity. The therapist will then place sets of medium-strength biomagnets on targeted points on either side of the body. The magnets painlessly emit polarized electromagnetic energy to rebalance your pH.
Q3: How many biomagnetic therapy sessions are needed?
The number of sessions needed varies per individual but often ranges from 8-12 visits. Typically, positive effects in stress reduction and headache relief are noticeable after 2-4 visits, with continuing cumulative benefits after consistent long-term treatment. Maintenance sessions spaced every month are recommended to sustain results. Consistency is key to successfully lowering stress-induced symptoms.
The non-invasive nature and lack of side effects make biomagnetic therapy an excellent addition for anyone looking to get stress levels and stress-related health issues under control through natural means. Be sure to communicate openly with your biomagnetic therapist so they can customize an effective treatment plan.
With stress being an inevitable daily fact for most people living in our fast-paced 21st century, it has become imperative that we utilize every safe, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment option at our disposal to mitigate chronic stress’ disastrous effects. If you find yourself constantly struggling with tension headaches, migraines, anxiety, poor sleep quality, or just feeling emotionally and physically drained, speak with your doctor about adding biomagnetic therapy.
When combined with lifestyle changes that lower daily stress triggers, repeated biomagnetic treatments offer a side-effect-free solution to effectively conquer stress while preventing long-term stress-related health consequences.
