I went off the ear magnets for about three months. Just started back on them for weight loss.
I really have to say, they do have a positive effect on me, for curbing my appetite for sweets.
Something else I'm thinking of trying, magnets on the pinky finger of both fingers. I did this for a week.
Before I started back on the ear magnets, I put magnets on my pinky fingers before going to bed.
Two different mornings, I woke up with a slight pain, discomfort, in the appendix area of the stomach. Each morning I got this pain, I discontinued the magnets on pinky fingers. When I started back up, I'd get the pain again, in same area, in the morning.
