    Has anyone out there ever tried a copper or Q-Ray bracelet? I know some golfers out there swear by them. I do not see to many out on the trapline.

    Thanks

    I think they are a clever way to separate you and your money...no more..no less...

    They only work if they are ported.

    Snake oil at best! The only people that really benefit from them are the ones that sell them. If you think they work for you, then go ahead and waste your money. Same goes for the magnetic jewelery they push these days.

    Come on guys. Where is your faith?

    Where the mind goes so follows the body.....in the "old" days my late father (small town physician) cured many a patient with sugar pills.

    Jerry- You make a valid point. The placebo effect is real and can be important.

    I see many people purchasing prescriptions and after some time they get better. I wounder what might happen if they did not take their prescribed medicine? Possibly many would simply get better after some time.

    I hope there really aren't people who buy this nonsense - are there?

    Not saying one way or the other........but most of the "medications" only treat the symptoms, until the body heals itself.............or not!

    Neil- It might not be nonsense. I wish I had purchased several tons of copper bracelets a couple of years ago. Copper has gone up in value more than Plumbum.

    How else you gonna balance your Yin and Yang and you'll look suave on the trapline. 60 bucks is a bargain.

    Rick,

    Now don't be trashing those Magic Rocks. They really do change one's outlook on life. Especially if you throw them hard enough and hit your mark! Just be sure not to be around when they recover! :)

    Now if you want something of value, wear some lead bracelets and jewelery. It's soon to be worth more than gold or silver and if you get desperate, you can melt it down and get a few shots worth.

    I've heard from a lot of people that they have had some benefits from Copper and Magnets. If it works for them, that's a great thing. They just never did much for me and I probably have at least an ounce of copper and magnetic material buried in my body somewhere. I've worked with enough of it over the years and I'm sure all of those small "accidents" have imbedded enough of it, permanently.

    about two years ago I started to learn how to write with my left hand because my right index finger hurt so bad I couldn't write. (Old football injury). My wife bought me this copper ring because she believes it helps. Having been married for 20 years I knew to put it on and shut up. I really was just biding my time until I could conveniently loose it. After two days I realized that my finger did not hurt anymore. I don't care if it is in my mind or not as long as the pain is gone.
