How I Stay Healthy

I keep myself physically active on Qberry farm. I try to eat local produce and use low temperature cooking methods.
I avoid using medication to treat symptoms but try to find and remove the cause of the symptom.
I use the same movement therapies that I recommend to my clients.
I use strong magnets to support my spine and prevent swelling when I work.

My Experience with Health Challenges

By 1994 at the age of 54 I was failing in my cleaning and landscape business. I could not work long enough at a time and could not lift heavy trash cans. My spinal injuries were beginning to ankalose. [look like bamboo on X-ray film]
Looking for a career change that would make me healthier I chose Massage School and was able to fine employment with my chiropractor.

Commented on Magnet Therapy 7 years ago

It should not have side effects. If the cuff itself iritates the skin ore the magnets are turned around so that the stimulating side rather than the calming side is toward the elbow it could be a problem with long treatment time. Remember the magnets are an aid to function of the fluids at the site of treatment. You may need the assistance of a therapist with tension coming from a distance away from the elbow.

Although much of what is sold as magnet therapy is of sham quality, my study and experience in application indicates that when properly applied as part of a healthcare regime it is highly effective in reducing swelling and improving metabolic processes.

Slipped disc is a misnomer. Most often it is a dehydrated disc that begins to bulge like a tire that is low on air. Just like a tire low on air when the car turns the tire can move sideways on the rim. If such a sideways motion is detected between your vertebra the muscles may be triggered to clamp down on it to stop the motion which if sustained make the problem worse. So will traction help? Usually yes. The fluid that hydrates and inflates the disc to its full height has to be sucked out of the bone above and below it. This normally happens by bending and twisting but traction makes it easier and bending and twisting under traction or laying down is more effective. Inversion tables or using an exercise to move the spine while laying down are effective means of traction.

There is a method called Structural Relief Therapy which is much more gentle and effective. It requires no anesthesia because pain is within tolerance of client. The procedure involves assessment of structural restriction then holding the arm in a relief position for 90 seconds. Arm is then moved slowly to newly tolerated range of motion. If the case is due to tearing and formation of scar tissue there are methods of lifting and separating scar tissue with injections.

I was skeptical that most magnet therapy products would not have enough benefits to justify the cost. My years of investigation proved this to be true. But magnet therapy dose work if applied properly with magnets of sufficient strength. I obtain commercial neodymium magnets 1/4 inch thick one inch to 3 inches in diameter depending on the area and depth to be treated. I consider the mechanism of the treatment to be that the magnets speed up the electrons in water molecules so that they become more active in body function. As a massage therapist I find that most pain originates where fluids have been blocked and application of the magnets speeds up recovery of normal circulation. To explain this further I have started a website magnet-therapy-how-why.com Hans Albert Quistorff, LMP Antalgic Posture Pain Specialist

Depending on the depth of the problem, The strength, size, and the placement is critical for effective relief and stimulation of repair. Because it is an aid and stimulant for tissue repair it needs to be in place consistently until repair is complete. Pain will return if repair is not complete.
