Okay, so it’s all over bar the shouting. Britain has decided – albeit narrowly – and we are truly a nation that is split down the middle. There is even a geographic aspect to the division. And it is not really grounds for rejoicing, even if one is on the winning side. After all, a house divided against itself cannot stand.
But even if divisions themselves cannot be abolished, the divided can at least be reconciled under the banner of peaceful coexistence. There are some worlds in which opposites attract. Hence marriage! And, of course, magnetism. Magnets attract not only iron but also other magnets. But then it’s a matter of orientation.North poles do not attract other north poles. They attract south poles. Otherwise the magnets would disintegrate!
But there is another sense in which we can negate the harmful effect of division.And that is by seeking common ground in those areas where it can be found. Human beings may differ in their political convictions. But there are certain things that nearly all of us desire. Like prosperity, happiness and – most important – health.
But health- or rather healthcare – is proving to be a major challenge these days. The costs of providing healthcare to a growing (and maturing) population are going through the roof. Part of the problem is that modern medicine is a victim of its own success. There are medical treatments available today – at a high price that in the past were not available at any price. And this is alone puts a strain on a National Health Service that is committed to providing the best healthcare available. Add to that the fact that our population is both growing numerically and aging, and it becomes easy to see why the NHS is having such a hard time coping.
This, naturally, encourages people to seek out private treatment instead, to jump the queues at NHS hospitals, clinics and GP surgeries. However, not everyone can afford private treatment. By and large, these private doctors and clinicians are very expensive. It’s the economics of supply and demand…
So what’s the solution? Well, truth-be-told, is that there is no “one size fits all” solution. But there is a school of thought that holds that if you want to promote health in society you need to explore all the options and not just those of conventional medicine. And that is why we, the people, should push for more alternative medicine and therapy. This, of course, includes therapy magnets for healing.
And this, neatly segues into my theme – to which I return, yet again, with no apologies: therapy magnets. By that, I do not mean going into a therapist’s office and spending a fortune on being hooked up to electromagnetic machines. Rather, I mean wearing magnetic on one’s person to counter such chronic ailments as osteoarthritis, which has been proven to benefit from magnetic therapy.
And if one is going to wear a healing magnet on one’s person, it might as well be pleasing to the eye and aesthetically positive, whether it be copper bracelet for arthritis or one the many men’s bracelets packed with sports magnets. My reasoning is that just as magnets are attractive to other magnets and to red blood cells, aesthetic attractiveness has a powerful effect on one’s mentality, promoting the kind of positivity that counters pain and promotes an internal sense of well-being.
Remember that disease is a word that comes from dis-ease. In other words, the opposite of disease is being at ease. And healing bracelets with extra strong magnets that also look good, will certainly promote a sense of ease.
