What is ebonite stick. Its application and properties
At the mention of the phrase "ebonite stick" most people have a single association - a school lesson, a physics teacher, small pieces of paper, which miraculously stick to an electrified stick. The teacher gave us answers to all the questions that arose after seeing manipulations with an amazing subject. We grew up and forgot about the existence of such a unique invention of mankind, as ebony sticks. But in vain ... Many scientists have devoted their lives to studying and studying the properties of ebonite.
At the beginning of the XIX century, the American inventor Charles Goodyear discovered a new substance to the world. He did this by accident. While working in his laboratory, Charles accidentally dropped a mixture of sulfur and rubber on the stove. The substance, which turned out, is known to all mankind as ebonite. The material was very hard and durable.
Even in ancient Greece, the ability of some materials to acquire an electric charge was known. It concerned amber.If you rub amber with wool, it will attract light objects. "Electron" is the Greek name for amber. The physical body, rubbed with hair and capable of attracting small particles, began to be called electrified. The concept of "electricity" has appeared.
Why can I electrify an ebonite stick?
It's all about the dielectric property of this material. The ebonite stick, rubbed with wool, concentrates all electricity on itself and acquires a negative charge. Wool has a positive charge, but is a very poor conductor of electricity. An electric field is formed around the stick, so the entire charge is accumulated on it.
Ebonite is resistant to acids, fats, salts, it is gas-tight. The material can change its color. It is produced in dark brown or black, but under the influence of the sun's rays ebonite oxidizes and acquires a green tint. At the same time, it does not lose its properties. In the dark, ebonite again turns black.
In its composition only rubber and sulfur. Additional ingredients can be white and black soot, coal dust, ebonite dust.Despite the fact that ebonite is a very durable material, it is easily amenable to mechanical stress.
Since the beginning of the twentieth century, natural and very expensive materials such as turtles, tusks of elephants, horns, hooves, and fangs have been replaced with ebonite. They began to produce crafts and souvenirs. Chess, scallops, mouthpieces for pipes, coasters, pens, ebonite money holders looked no worse than their counterparts from natural materials. In the modern world, this unique rubber is used:
- in electromechanics (as an electrical insulator);
- in pharmaceuticals (as acid resistant);
- in the national economy (production of souvenirs, handicrafts, billiard balls);
- in medicine (electrotherapy, reflexology).
Ebonite stick and its healing properties
After much research and observation, scientists have established a positive effect of ebonite products on the human body. An improvement in the quality of blood, an increase in the amount of oxygen in the cell, and the restoration of its liquid crystal structure were noted. To achieve a therapeutic effect, it is enough that an electrified ebonite stick rub against a person’s skin in a sore spot.Contactless use is also possible: you can drive a stick over a sore spot 2-3 mm from the body. When a wand rubs against a human body, a positive charge arises in it, and a negative charge in the body. Opposite charges attract. Useful bio-currents appear in the sore spot. Negative charges leave the body, then re-form, re-leave, re-form. This activates the body's metabolic processes, improves blood circulation and saturates the tissues with oxygen.
When ebonite treatment is applied
In medicine, this method is called electrotherapy, or reflexology. Ebonite rod or stick affect biologically active points. In contact with the skin, useful bio-currents occur. In combination with reflexology, the effect of electrotherapy is achieved. This treatment is applied:
- with flu and colds;
- inflammation of the lungs;
- asthma, shortness of breath;
- with sinusitis;
- with angina;
- with hypertension and hypotension;
- after a heart attack;
- with problems with the intestines;
- in diseases of the liver;
- with rheumatism and radiculitis;
- with joint disease.
The time of one session should not exceed 15 minutes. All movements are clockwise. The human body must be dry. After the procedure, the wand should be washed with soap and water.
This method of treatment is not a panacea for all diseases, but a good analogue of traditional chemical medicines, which has no contraindications.
