I remember my Grandpa swore by his for his arthritis. Ever try one? They even sell them in the gift shop at the hospital I work at! Wonder if its the whole placebo effect or if anyone has had some actual results.....

My body reacts weird to copper- it seems to increase my electrical charge and I shock everyone I touch. I have family members who swear by copper and others who swear by magnets. I have no clue if either helps.

I had a client who swore by his "metal" braclet. I'm actually not sure if it was copper or magnet or what. But he was in construction and said that it got rid of terrible pain.

I forgot about that . . . I was, at one point, going to try it. What could it hurt???
