I've seen more than one old timer in my days that wear the copper bracelets and swear by them. Anybody have any good experiences with them?

I think there is good reason you dont see arthritis sufferers wearing them anymore. Turn your wrist green and provide no relief.


Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

An old woodsman I knew was never without his and swore by it. Beats me!

Maybe...it MIGHT work a little in the beginning stages of the hurt, but I wouldn't bet any money on that..probably more of a placebo effect....

You might check out negative ion bracelets. A lot of benefits to wearing one.

My grandad was a believer in copper for arthritis. The old timers back then didn't go for pills like people do today.

I worked as a hydro lineman, for many years . I had quite a few people ask for a short piece of copper wire. They wanted an old piece , that had , been used , that current had travelled through, claimed it worked. I usually gave them a piece of number 2 guage copper, about 1/4 inch. old243

If I don't wear one in a couple days I won't be able to pick up a cup of coffee. My wife's been wearing them for 20 years and told me to try it, didn't know that's why she was wearing them! Told her I don't believe in that voodoo witchcraft, well I tried it and if I don't wear a copper bracelet I have to take meds regularly. I'll wear the copper bracelet instead of taking meds.
Ask my PCP why that works, he said I don't know it's not supposed to, so go figure.

Some swear by magnets as well.


Some individuals use statistics as a drunk man uses lamp-posts — for support rather than for illumination.

Well, bacteria and many fungi can't live on copper surfaces...maybe copper has other properties as well?

Are they wearing them for arthritis in their wrist or anywhere in the body?

Psychosomatic effect most likely, I'll stick with my hydroxychloroquine.
