Case Study- Vanessa 51 years

    For the last 8 years Vanessa has suffered from a very rare syndrome called ‘Stiff man syndrome’, it is a neurological condition that effects muscle control, causing muscle spasms, rigidity and pain. Vanessa’s condition not only affected the large muscles of the body but also the muscle of the face. When Vanessa developed stiff man syndrome her speech began to slur and she had difficulty in forming words. In April 2000 she lost her power of speech altogether, only returning very occasionally for a few minutes or at most a few hours. Vanessa had to communicate via a typewriting speech box.

    Vanessa was first seen in our clinic in August 2004, her loss of speech remained as well as suffering with intense facial spasms which twisted her mouth and left eye. She was not very optimistic about her chances of success with magnets as there were no reported cases of treatment for stiff mans syndrome with magnets. She was how ever very willing to try magnetic treatment as she was finding it difficult to cope with the facial muscle spasms. The most Vanessa hoped for was an easing of the facial spasms.

    Vanessa was prescribed individual bar magnets 2,600 gauss/260 m tesla to be placed over the muscles that went into spasm, a magnetic pillow and 4-6 glasses of magnetised water per day. Vanessa was reviewed at 10 days, she had used the bar magnets and the pillow daily and the results were extremely impressive. The facial spasms had completely resolved, plus totally unexpectedly her speech had also returned. Vanessa could not describe how life changing the effects of the magnets was to her. She was once again able to express herself.
    Vanessa continued to sleep on the pillow pad but she removed the bar magnets from her face, after regaining her speech for 13 days she became unwell and her speech again deserted her. She immediately replaced the bar magnets and within just 2 hours the spasms had stopped and her speech returned. Vanessa’s speech stayed with her for a few more weeks and she then she once more fell ill, her condition is very debilitating and when an exacerbation occurs her speech is lost very quickly. She desperately wanted to retain her speech so she chose to use a magnetic mattress cover with the hope that the sustained exposure to such high strength magnetic fields would keep her condition in remission. She also drinks magnetised water daily, wears a bracelet and uses a magnetic eye mask for the facial spasms instead of bar magnets.
    Vanessa has periods were she feels very well and has her speech, but also still suffers from relapses, were she feels very drained and does lose her speech. She feels that overall there has been a tremendous improvement to her condition within the last 6 months. Since using magnetic therapy Vanessa has had perfect speech for 46 days within the last 6 months, compared with 9 days of speech in the previous 6 months with out using magnets.

    Magnetic devices are perfectly safe to use and you can not overdose on magnetism. It is for this reason that they are now widely available over the counter. You can safely use magnets with out the need for medical advice but you may not get the best possible results. If it is at all possible the best way to use magnets is to seek trained professional advice from a magnetic therapist before commencing treatment.
There are a number of trained magnetic therapists in the UK and their details can be found from the CMA (Complementary Medicine Association) or the BCMA (British Complementary Medicine Association). Many magnetic therapy suppliers claim to be trained professional but they do not actually hold any recognised qualifications. All trained magnetic therapists will have completed a course which is provided by a college or university which is regulated by either the CMA or BCMA.

    If you are unsure about a magnetic therapists’ credentials always ask to see evidence of their qualifications, for example certificates of accreditation. If the therapist can not provide these then they are most likely not a qualified therapist and their advice can not be relied upon.
