Dr. Carlos Vallbona is the former chairman of the department of community medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. As a physician, he has treated a large volume of patients experiencing pain. It was during this time that he heard remarkable testimonials about magnets from his patients. In fact, other medical professionals were telling him the same thing about magnets.
Like many medical professionals unfamiliar with magnetic health therapy, Dr. Vallbona was initially skeptical about the healing abilities of magnets. However, with a growing number of patients and medical doctors showing support for magnetic therapy, he took it upon himself to find out the truth behind pain relief magnets.
Initially, Dr. Vallbona and his colleague, Carlton Hazelwood, Ph.D., used magnets for the pain in their own knee.
...
One of Dr. Vallbona's first patients to be treated with pain relief magnets happened to be a priest with post-polio syndrome. The priest had difficulty raising his left hand especially when gesturing while giving a sermon to his congregation. After being treated with magnets, Dr. Vallbona recalled "the priest said this was a miracle."
Dr. Vallbona realized this was a great opportunity to scientifically test the effects of magnetic health therapy on chronic pain in the body. In addition, he knew the implications this study would have on the millions of people living with pain. The data from this study would be a valuable resource for people experiencing pain. This would allow them to make an informed decision on improving their health with magnets. Another significant factor was if this study showed magnetic health therapy to be safe and effective, it would have advantages over the side effects of prescription medication and drugs.
Coming from a medical background, Dr. Vallbona knew that other medical colleagues had reservations about magnetic therapy. It was because of this belief that he sought out to perform a thorough investigation involving pain relief magnets that would yield scientific evidence to evaluate the effects of magnetic health therapy on chronic pain.
