Would magnetic therapy work for a person with
arthritis who will not take medication. Thanks.
Magnets have no support of any significant scientific research. Some people still could find that they feel better using a magnet, but there is no scientific reason why they should. It should be noted that magnets have been sold, in many areas, under multi-level marketing schemes.
Thank you for your question.
