Today we’d like to introduce you to April Maguire.
April, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am the founder of MagneHealth Inc. I started MagneHealth, a magnetic jewelry company, over ten years ago when I discovered the healing properties of magnets.
After working for years with computers, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. I had to use a bulky brace that was prescribed at that time by doctors to keep my hand straight. It was not only cumbersome but ugly!! It was difficult to use the computer and to write with the brace, and I even had to sleep with it!
My husband found a magnetic bracelet at an airport while he was on a business trip that he brought home for me to try. It worked!! However it was rather ugly, so I started making pretty magnetic jewelry that I could wear every day and accessorize with my outfits.
The magnetic bracelet helped to alleviate my severe carpal tunnel symptoms. I was relieved and thrilled to discover a type of pain relief not available through traditional medicine, which would typically include medication and/or surgery that can cause unwanted side effects. Magnetic therapy has no known side effects, except if you have a pace maker or defibrillator, or are pregnant or nursing.
That was over 10 years ago and I am still wearing magnetic bracelets and rings for many different ailments. My carpal tunnel returns at times, as it is a recurring ailment activated by overuse of the wrist. In my case, I overuse my wrists when making jewelry, using the computer, etc. When my carpal tunnel does occasionally return, I sleep with magnetic bracelets around my wrists and by morning the pain is gone.
I use magnetic rings for arthritis, headaches, appetite suppression and many other ailments, including symptoms of Lyme disease, and multiple concussions. As someone who has felt the positive impacts of magnetic jewelry it is my mission, and the mission of MagneHealth Inc., to spread the benefits of magnetic healing to as many people as possible.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There are many obstacles in running a business. We are constantly struggling with our inventory levels. Inventory issues include, which products sell well, which products don’t, how much to order so that we have it in stock and don’t run out. On the flip side we can’t order too much or we will have excess inventory that doesn’t turn fast enough. Now China is having problems with their factories and we may not be able to get any product from them at all. We may have to source from another country or find alternate ways to make our jewelry.
We also face cash flow issues constantly as a small business. It’s a difficult environment in which to obtain funding from banks for a small business. So, we have to find alternate ways to obtain funding without paying outrageous rates from private lenders. We need cash to buy inventory, pay overhead and payroll costs as well as new product development so that we can stay on the cutting edge in a competitive retail environment.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the MagneHealth story. Tell us more about the business.
We are an online retailer and wholesaler of magnetic jewelry. Our magnetic jewelry helps people with many ailments such as headaches, arthritis, carpal tunnel, appetite suppression, tendonitis, insomnia, etc. We hear from many people that have used our products saying that they are helped and feel relief from these ailments after wearing our products. Our products are sold in drugstores, pharmacies, hospital gifts shops, gift shops, garden centers, florists and many other types of stores and of course online through our website – www.magnehealth.com.
One thing our customers love is our customized charts detailing magnet placement for healing. Our charts show you where to wear the magnets to heal certain ailments. These charts were developed by MagneHealth and are proprietary.
I am very proud that we can help people to heal naturally without medications and without any known side effects. Magnetic therapy has been around for centuries and has been used in conjunction with other natural remedies such as herbs, food therapy, gemstone therapy, acupuncture and acupressure.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
One could say that I have had bad luck with all the health issues that I’ve had which motivated me to find natural cures for my ailments mainly because modern medicine could not help me or the cure was to be put on drugs for life that had side effects that I found intolerable. I wanted to get to the root cause of my health issues and to fix them not to simply mask them with drugs. So, I consider these health issues to actually be good luck in that if I had never experienced them, I could not have discovered all the wonderful benefits of magnetic therapy. I could not help thousands of people to heal naturally.
