    I'm new to this site so this question might have already been posted, but I've heard from some people that these bracelets help. Has anyone ever used them or know anything about them? Thanks

    I have been using a Copper Braclet now for a few years.

    I reckon its helping with my Arthritis as I would be a lot worse.

    look too good to be true, doesn't it? I'm willing to try just about anything non invasive that doesn't cost a fortune. Got nothing to lose, right? And not like you can have a bad side effect from something external, right?

    A coworker's mom has Lyme/Rheumatoid/FM and she swears by MAGNET THERAPY. I know like nothing about it, but she's offered to let me borrow a bunch of her magnets (I guess they're special in some way? I dunno. Apparently you tape them to aching bits, and it helps almost immediately. Shes also lending me a Magnetic Mattress. I can't imagine what thats about...think its like a single person mattress pad with magnets in it? Of course, if it works well (or at all!) I'll post more info here.

    Don't know about the copper. Probably next time I see a late night Qray add I'll give into the temptation to give it a whirl. Anyone ever use that specific brand?

    and she said they helped her hands. She had OA and her granddaughter (me) does, too. Now, I don't know if it did or not because I was young and healthy and didn't think a thing about illness. Never thought I'd ever be sick.

    Live and learn. So, that's my only experience with them. I did buy a pair of magnetetic insoles and I really don't think they do a thing. My feet still hurt.

    My grandmother lived to be 90...I was 45 when whe died about 12 years ago. She never had an operation and even though she had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and was very bad about taking her meds (only when she thought she might have a hard day), she lived a long, productive life. Got to be something in that, don't you think?

    Anyway, thanks for the thought. I'll check to see if anyone thinks these items help.

    the copper one just left a green ring around my wrist which was very hard to get rid of.

    The magnetic one made the joints of the arm I had it on ache something awful after wearing it for few hours--really a shame cause it is a pretty piece of jewelry.

    I know lots of people swear by all the magnetic things you can buy (some of it is quite costly) but I didn't have any positive results from using them.

    i have a friend with arthritis that says her copper bracelets help her. she didn't realize they helped until she quit wearing them. i once read an article---wish i could tell you where---it gave an explaination as to why they work. there really is a scientific reason. it has something to do with a specific organ in our body----i'm sure my very vague explaination is alot of help.LOL!!

    a friend loaned me one and it felt wonderful to sleep on it, really helped the pain, too bad I had to give it back, they are fairly expensive so I can't buy one

    Made SURE it had a money back Guarantee.

    It did nothing.
    (It supposedly reverses ions or something).

    Got my money back. (After I threatened).

    a magnetic bracelet. It works for me. When weather fronts are coming, my right wrist hurts from a break when I was a kid.

    Everyone is different, and their pains are caused from different things. I got my bracelet at a pharmacy for 4.95 and found one at a thrift store for 57 cents! ;)
