The Copper Theory
Various forms of copper have been used for medicinal purposes right through the history of mankind. The ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Persian, Hindu and Aztec writings record more than a few consistent medicinal uses of copper.1 Today, as more information becomes available, alternative health care and home remedies are gaining popularity. Health publications include copper bracelets as a home treatment to possibly ease the pain from arthritis in some people who seem to get an insufficient amount of copper from their food. Helmar Dollwet, Ph.D., of the University of Akron, has studied this copper connection and thinks the dissolved copper from a copper bracelet entering the body through the skin may be the only way for them to get the copper they need.2 Another study found patients wearing copper bracelets absorbed an average of 13 milligrams of copper throughout a month. “This could bring many people into the recommended daily intake for copper (1.5 to 3 milligrams). Copper absorbed through the skin gets into circulation very efficiently more so than most dietary copper.” Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is without doubt one of the bodys own copper-dependent enzymes that reduces pain and inflammation. The body may use copper to make more of its own SOD.3

The Magnetic Theory
Magnets have been used in different cultures over time by those who imagine magnets worn on the body promote good health. The theory is that magnet therapy may be a good suggestion by affecting the circulatory system, the blood glide in the body. Increased circulation is a good suggestion because the body gets more of the nutrients it needs from the blood.
