Magnetic therapy is also helpful in treating insomnia. Sometimes the body’s natural clock gets disturbed. To overcome insomnia this clock needs to be reset. It is controlled by a hormone melatonin. The pineal gland is responsible for melatonin production. This gland is responsive to magnetic fields. When a strong magnetic field is placed around the head the pineal gland is stimulated and produces melatonin. Over a small period of time the body clock resets and sleep patterns become normal.
