Keeping vampires, werewolves and zombies at bay
Friday, 9 December 2016
At this time of year - peace to earth and goodwill to all men - we still have to worry about all those who wish to do us harm: vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc. Did I detect a skeptical raised eyebrow Roger Moore? Well don't be so surprised. We can argue over whether these creatures exist but they fall into a category known to risk-managers as "low-probability, high impact." That means it's unlikely to happen but likely to be devastating if it does. A bit like a nuclear war. And we DO have nuclear bunkers, even if they're only available to the rich, the royals and the senior politicos and their civil service minions.
But why should the rest of us be deprived of the necessary level of protection? I don't mean nuclear war. There's precious little we can do about that. Magnetic bracelets can't stop radiation. And they can't stop politicians from being stupid. (Can anything?)
But at least we should have some basic - and affordable - protection against the un-dead, the creatures that come out when the moon is full and - most important of all - nocturnal bloodsuckers. (No I don't mean the taxman!)
Well now - thanks to Magnetic Products Store - you can. They are offering affordable magnetic bracelets that can repel vampires. Yes Vampires. MPS can absolutely guarantee that if you re wearing one of these bracelets, you will never be attacked by a vampire. (We make no representations regarding vampire bats, but they are usually found in South America.) But actual vampires? We absolutely promise that if you wear this bracelet, you want be attacked by a vampire!
But what of Zombies and Werewolves. Well the accused creatures only come out when there's a full moon. Nevertheless, to give you all-month-round security. MPS offers a magnetic bracelet that wards off werewolves.
And finally zombies. What can is say? You may think these are just a teenage obsession. But can be sure? especially when the insurance is so affordable? So if you want a bracelet t protect you against zombies, this is the one.
For eight days you shall dwell in booths

Living out of doors is not what most people aspire to. I mean nobody wants to be homeless. Yet a lot of us love camping. See this touching story about a father bonding with his two-year-old on an overnight biking, fishing and camping trip. Then after I read that, I found another.
But the reason I mention all this is because, at the time of writing, we are in the midst of the Jewish festival of Succot, when Jews, the world over, commemorate their wondering in the wilderness for 40 years, during which time they dwelt in improvised shelters. Now, whether or not you believe ancient religious texts, is up to you. But one thing we should all recognize is that we don't know everything. Not in science, not in nature, not in medicine.
Nature has its own way of dealing with things. That is why some people like to live close to nature, as the above examples illustrate, even in our brave new world of advanced science and technology. And that is why some people rely on alternative medicine and natural healing even in a world of laser surgery, antibiotics and the vast repertoire of high-tech machinery to be found in a typical western hospital.
That is not to say that we should not make use of every weapon in our arsenal in the war against disease. Just that we should remember that even in an age of laser-guided missiles and nuclear warheads, soldiers are still trained in the art of unarmed combat. Even though cities and entire countries can be obliterated at the mere touch of a button, soldiers are still expected to be fit- and fitness training form a major part of any modern-day military training regime.
The same, of course, applies to medicine. We have NMR and CTI scanners. We have X-ray machines. We have heart-lung machines, robotic, long-distance, surgery. We have advanced prosthetic limbs made out of resilient composite materials. We have air ambulances that can carry patients from mountaintops to hospitals. We have decompression chambers for divers suffering from the bends. And yet...
There is still room for alternative medicine. Whether it is the Jewish penicillin of chicken soup, or an FDA-approved magnetic band to prevent acid reflux. Natural medicine is here to stay.
Magnetic Bracelets for Rio 2016
Saturday, 13 August 2016
If you're interested in buying magnetic bracelets, what is the first thing you do? Quite likely, it is simply to look on the internet. Right? But when you do a search for the term "magnetic bracelets" in any of the leading search engines, you are greeted by a plethora of sites selling a vast range of magnetic therapy products from which to choose.
However, what is interesting is that the biggest such site in Europe - and the second biggest in the world - only appears at the very bottom of the list. Clearly, that is not much help if you are suffering from arthritis or looking for something to protect you from sports injury.
This is more to do with the way search engines work and there is pretty much nothing you can do about, except scan down the page to make sure that you are finding the best site. Unlike sport - or rather exactly like sport - coming first doesn't necessarily mean that they are the best. In fact, this analogy is very apt, because, for the last few decades, the Olympic games and other sports have been plagued by the scourge of cheating, in the form of athletes using anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
In the same way, some online retailers are able to bump up their search results by all manner of illicit means. These means go by the name "black hat" and they are to the online world what steroids (and bribery/gambling rackets) are to sport. And the analogy goes even further, because, in the face of these almost insurmountable problems, there is a grave temptation to embrace the philosophy known as: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
However, I myself do not espouse this particular view. I would rather be the last man standing in the realm of honesty (perhaps that should be the first man falling!) that embrace the dishonest approach of those whom I despise.
But if you are interested in taking up sport and inspired by the current spectacular of Rio 2016 - and let's face it, the Olympics always inspire us couch potatoes to take up sport - then you'll find that Magnetic Products Store has a fine collection of sports wrisbands and bracelets for men and women.
This includes the excellent ionTopia Range that has set the magnetic therapy world buzzing with its wonderfully diverse range of magnetic bracelets, bangles and wrist bands with powerful sets of magnets (3000 Gauss).
Just take a look at these and you'll see what I mean:
