The Magnetic Theory & The Copper Theory
Copper wristbands and magnetic products are considered to be unproven remedies. However, magnets have been used in different cultures over the years by those who believe magnets worn on the body promote good health. The theory is that magnet therapy may be beneficial by affecting the circulatory system, the blood flow in the body. Increased circulation is beneficial because the body gets more of the nutrients it needs from the blood.
Various forms of copper have been used for medicinal purposes throughout the history of mankind. The ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Persian, Hindu and Aztec writings record various consistent medicinal uses of copper.*
Today, as more information becomes available, alternative health care and home remedies are gaining popularity. Health publications include copper bracelets as a home remedy 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.**
Another study found patients wearing copper bracelets absorbed an average of 13 milligrams of copper during 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 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.***

Does this bracelet fit any size wrist?
Elegant Medical Alert
Yes, the bracelets are available in multiple sizes.
Can a link be removed to make it a little smaller?
I would like to know if this is waterproof?? I never take my bracelet off normally due to the severity of my illness.
I ordered the l/xl bracelet. It ended up being very large for my wrist. I had to take it to a local jewelry store to have a link taken out. The link had to be drilled out since it was not made to be taken out. I love the bracelet and now wear it all the time since it fits well. Ive had lots of comments on it.
