Now who would have thought of putting magnets in everyday knee sleeves or knee braces? And Why Magnets?
An easy way to get familiar with magnet therapy is through Dr Gary Null’s book, Healing with Magnets. If you go and look inside and read the short introduction, it is easy to see why Magnet Therapy has a strong and dedicated following in the alternative health field.
An additional source would be this article, published at the Foundation for Alternative and Integrative Medicine and I quote: “Many believe with religious-like fervor that their magnets will cure any disease you can name, from cancer to AIDS to eczema. That’s like the modern doctor’s blind belief in chemical drugs for health. Both extremes are enthusiastically wrong and dangerous.”
As we saw in the Saker’s request for healing help in the past week and his collective reply, not only is the community right into alternative or natural health, but also well read and knowledgable. So, this interesting product comes our way at a good time. It is good to remember that we are all individuals and we are not ‘one-size-fits-all’ in terms of health. Magnet therapy may work excellently for some, but not at all for others. Having said that, the knee sleeves from our community member and supporter may be just what you wanted and you can support a community member as well.
If you are using knee sleeves or braces to support creaky and achy knees, these would be good to try. They are available on Amazon. Take a look at the 100’s of reviews.
Thank-you to Eric, a long time reader and supporter of The Saker, for bringing your very unique knee sleeve to our attention.
There was a time when a knee sleeve was nothing more than a thin piece of elastic tubing, but thanks to modern technology, For-Knees is now able to offer you the latest evolution of this compression knee sleeve.
Comfortable But Strong, our knee braces are made from a stretchable and breathable blend of cotton yarn, latex yarn, and tourmaline fiber for maximum comfort. We’ve also designed our weave to be thick, to provide maximum support and compression.
Nanotechnology Far Infrared Rays – The tourmaline (a semi precious mineral) fiber that is woven into our knee sleeves absorbs your body’s own heat and reflects it back as Far Infrared Rays for warmth that can relieve arthritis and joint pain, reduce muscle pain and spasms, and counteract joint stiffness and Raynaud’s Syndrome.
Super-Strong Magnets – Also woven into each knee sleeve are 13 strategically placed supermagnets, that are made from boron, iron, and neodymium, with a rating of 1,000 – 1,200 Gauss (0.1 – 0.12 Tesla).
Who Are For-Knees Knee Braces For? They are perfect for athletes and those who enjoy any type of indoor or outdoor activity, including basketball, golf, hiking / walking, jogging, tennis, or yoga, whether you’re recovering from a knee injury or you simply want to help protect your knees before you encounter any problems.
They are also great for those who suffer from arthritis, age-related joint pains, or who need additional support following surgery.
Available In Two Sizes Our knee braces come in Small (11 – 13 inches, or 28 – 33 cm), and Medium / Large (13 – 17 inches or 33 – 43 cm). Note that these measurements should be taken around the knee from the middle of the kneecap.
