A friend of mine sent an article on the use of magnet therapy in treating diabetic neuropathy. Another friend with equally good intentions passed along the claim that the salvia plant held the “cure.” Over my four decades as a T1D there have been scores of new treatments presented, from sources both credible and, well, not.
This cartoon is an obvious spoof on an alternative treatment that may, for all I know, work very well for some people (I don’t claim to be a doctor). But like all therapies – traditional, integrated, or radical – one needs to follow protocol. Eating magnets to control neuropathy or blood sugar (ringworm or stuttering) is advocated by no one, I promise you. You’d be much better advised to use them on your fridge.
