There have been some studies on magnetic insoles with the results being variable. I have used them on some patients but couldn't really tell an overwhelming difference. There are also differences in the the types of magnetic insoles as well. NIKKEN (a world wide company) is one brand that is sold through individuals through multi-level marketing. You might be able to get some more information from their web site.
I would not ever suggest that these would be a substitute for proper medication and diet for your health problems.
