Why do Indian women wear bangles?


I have two reasonable answers for your question

Reason1: Normally the wrist portion is in constant activation on any human. Also the pulse beat in this portion is mostly checked for all sorts of ailments. The Bangles used by women are normally in the wrist part of ones hand and its constant friction increases the blood circulation level. Further more the electricity passing out through outer skin is again reverted to one’s own body because of the ring shaped bangles, which has no ends to pass the energy outside but to send it back to the body.

Inorder to put this in control, or in a way we can say to avoid such impatience problem from occuring, women were asked to wear bangles and some other ornaments waist belt, anklets, armlets. Even Ear rings also have their own significance. Read here to know: Why we pierce ears and why we wear ear rings.

Reason2: Gold is dia-magnetic which means it repels magnetic field. As we are on earth (hopefully you too!:) ), we are surrounded by magnetic fields. Our heart work on small electrical impulses for its functions. When these electrical impulses get opposed by earth's magnetic field, power of the heart to pump the blood reduces. In order to prevent this, we wear gold.

Gold is a dia-magnetic substance and repels magnetic fields. As it is worn upto the heart position (in the form of pendants), heart will not get the interruption of earth's magnetic field. Hence it does not need to do the 'hard work' to pump blood, which ultimately increases the life of heart.
