The mystery of magnetic bracelets
Magnetic therapy is not a real mystery although when the ancient Greeks and Egyptians were using magnets to supposedly pull disease from the human body several thousand years ago, the use of magnets was a complete mystery to them. But what these ancient peoples did know is that this magical magnetic force worked, even if they didn’t understand how. And here is how it works
- Static magnets of sufficient strength increase the flow of oxygenated blood around the body by combining with the protein found in the red blood cells called haemoglobin. This has iron at the centre of its molecule and the two opposing magnetic forces increase the potency of the iron in combination with the oxygen, ideal for the management of pain and inflammation anywhere in the body
- Magnets influence the electrical communication between the individual cells in the body which are essential for the physiological traffic that constantly moves around the body
- Everybody has an electromagnetic field surrounding their body. Magnets can influence this in a beneficial way. Disruption or disturbance to the body’s electromagnetic field is thought to be a major contributor to the contracting of certain diseases
What ailments and conditions can a copper magnetic bracelet help with other than arthritis?
First off, copper bracelets can really help with the pain and discomfort of osteoarthritis and not just in the fingers and the joints of the hand and wrist either.
Because the impact of the magnetic field can be taken from the wrist to the heart via the bloodstream, strong enough magnets will allow this benefit to be pumped around the body by the circulation. So, copper magnetic bracelets can help with arthritis in lots of different locations in the human body plus there are many other conditions and problems which can benefit from this form of therapy. These include psychological and mental conditions:-
- Low Mood
- The psychological withdrawal cravings associated with quitting smoking
Here are some of the benefits of wearing a copper magnetic bracelet when it comes to physical problems. A copper bracelet can help with:-
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Hypertension or high blood pressure
- Sport injuries
- Period pains and cramping
- RSI or Repetitive Strain Injury
As well as managing pain and inflammation and reducing or eliminating reliance on conventional medication which can have serious side effects, a copper magnetic bracelet can also be worn in a proactive way to help promote good health in conjunction with other measures like diet and exercise.
Is copper good for arthritis?
Copper can reduce the joint pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and that’s before you combine it with the winning effect of static magnets.
Copper was used in the 19th century by French physicians to treat arthritis and was administered in the form of a poultice based on a mixture of lard and copper acetate and copper tablets by mouth. Nowadays, science has moved on a bit although it is not fully understood still how copper can improve the joint pain and inflammation of these two diseases. Here are some popular and common theories:-
- Copper is a catalyst to ensure enzyme reactions occur properly
- Copper contains several metalloenzymes and one of these, copper-zinc superoxide dismutase, has powerful antioxidant actions which can reduce inflammation. People with copper deficiency or low copper diets show a reduction in the effect of this metalloenzyme and reduced effectiveness has been linked to connective tissue problems affecting joints, bone and blood vessels
- Copper is an important element in the synthesis of collagen which is a key structural protein found in the make up of joints and is a crucial promoter of elastic joint cartilage
- In a more general context, copper is thought to have an analgesic effect on pain and inflammation
Copper can be absorbed in tiny amounts through the skin by the wearing of copper jewellery. The rate of absorption is between 100mg and 150mg of copper in the course of one year and relies on consistent usage of the bracelet for around 12 hours every day. The usual way to assess copper absorption is to weigh the bracelet or anklet at different points during the year and record the findings.

Are there any downsides to copper magnetic bracelets?
Copper as a base metal will oxidise (rust, in plain English) and can tint the skin green on the wrist of the wearer. This is the process of passing the copper into the skin, but some people that are looking to purchase coper bracelets may not be aware of that. Also, some people (About 1% of the population) with delicate or sensitive skin will react to copper so it doesn’t suit everyone.
