What is a Copper Bracelet?
A pure copper bracelet is made by manipulating copper into bands that can be easily wrapped around the wrist or upper arm. Because of the soft nature of copper itself, these bracelets can be creatively moulded to mimic styles of jewelry which suit regular, everyday fashion.
For centuries, the healing properties of copper have been known around the world, with different civilizations finding uses for the element in health and wellness. Think of the pharaohs in Ancient Egypt, and the way they would adorn their arms, necks and head with copper jewelry. Common copper bracelets are more recent manifestations of this kind of use, and their intent is to help everyday humans with joint pain.
Magnetic Copper Bracelets Benefits
🚅 Improved Circulation
It has long been believed that magnetic therapy helps promote blood circulation to the area of the body where the magnets are in contact with the skin. Since copper magnetic bracelets are worn around the wrists, you can aim to improve the circulation throughout the entire arm down to the fingertips. Poor circulation is the cause of many of the health concerns that we face as humans. By improving circulation, we are able to combat the root cause of many health ailments and take advantage of a wide range of benefits.
🚅 Pain Relief
The use of copper magnetic bracelets as a remedy for pain relief has been a debated subject for many years. That being said, the number of customers that have reported the healing benefits of copper magnetic bracelets for relief of their carpal tunnel and arthritis pain is too large to be denied. We
Many of those who suffer from arthritis or carpal tunnel become tired of taking these oral medications for the pain relief because of the side effects, more often than not, outweighs the relief such medications provide. As a result of this, copper bracelets with magnets have become a very popular alternative for people looking for relief, as they can be worn continuously, with little to no side effects.
Most arthritis sufferers attest that copper magnetic bracelets are safe, as they can be worn all day long, and enable them to move with minimal restrictions and with fewer pains.
🚅 Reduced Inflammation
Improved circulation and a proper nutritional balance of copper in the body can help alleviate inflammation in joints. With the number of joints in the hand and arm, targeting the wrist by wearing a copper magnetic bracelet could be a powerful option to combat joint inflammation. This is why many people with tennis elbow (tendinitis) and golfers elbow trust magnetic therapy bracelets to help alleviate pain and focus on recovery for those areas of the arm.
🚅 Mineral Supplementation
Scientia Press, a website dedicated to science and history, advocates the healing benefits of copper bracelets. These benefits are attributed to the body’s absorption of trace minerals through a process called Transdermal Micronutrition (TDM). This process describes that microminerals of iron and zinc, which are present in copper, combine with sweat on the skin. The body then absorbs these minerals, and if patients are deficient in these minerals in the first place, they begin to feel better.
People suffering from copper-deficiency also insist that copper indeed combines with sweat on the skin. As a result, copper magnetic bracelets provide them with enough copper for daily intake, as they believe that Micro-minerals absorbed through sweat are stronger than minerals taken in supplement form because they move directly into the bloodstream and they bypass the liver.
🚅 Cardiovascular Diseases
Copper-deficiency has been linked to certain cardiovascular diseases. Various research studies have been conducted, and many of them have proven that people with chronically low amounts of copper in their bodies are more likely to have high blood pressure, and are suspected of having increased risks in suffering from cardiovascular diseases.
Many of these sufferers have been using copper magnetic bracelets assert that using copper magnetic bracelets, along with proper diet and exercise, helped reduce their blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and have helped alleviate symptoms of different cardiovascular diseases they’re suffering from.
Theories and Medical Research
As you research copper bracelets, you will find a symphony of theories and opinions about whether they work and, if so, how they work. In truth, the function of copper is still not fully understood by most health practitioners.
The first thing one needs to understand about copper is its relationship to the human body in general. Copper is a highly necessary mineral in the normal function of both males and females. It is almost solely responsible for our antioxidant enzymes, as well as metabolizing Vitamin C.
Copper deficiency is an actual condition, and almost all inflammatory related diseases can be linked back to it, including the various dreaded forms of arthritis.
Doctors and scientists alike have pondered whether copper bracelets work and if so, whether they can help with joint pain and arthritis. Many studies have been conducted using a range of volunteers and a mix of pure copper bracelets as well as placebo versions (i.e. mock copper).
Dr. Sarah Brewer reported on one specific study conducted on 240 patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. The researchers in that study were not only monitoring the improvement in the physical conditions of the patients, but also the changes in the copper levels of the bracelets used by them.
At the conclusion of the study, it was determined that those wearing the pure copper bracelets could report significant improvement in pain levels, compared to those who merely wore the placebo bracelets. What’s more, each of the pure copper bracelets was shown to have lost an average of 13mg of copper throughout the trial compared to their starting levels, suggesting that compounds of the element were likely absorbed by the body.
A similar study was conducted in England by a different group of researchers. They were concerned with the question of whether copper helps with pain and brought together 70 individuals suffering with the same aforementioned rheumatoid arthritis. Unlike the findings of the previous researchers, it was the conclusion of these researchers that the wearing of copper bracelets did not result in sufficient alleviation of pain and was no different from wearing a placebo.
Both of the above-noted studies were focused on testing the theory that copper may help with joint pain and arthritis because of its absorption into the body. Not everyone is convinced by the theory of absorption, however. Some proponents believe that copper bracelets actually work because of something known as iontophoresis. This loosely means that copper draws sulphates out of the body and up into the skin, which, according to these proponents, is why the skin underneath a copper bracelet eventually turns blue-green.
Those that subscribe to this theory believe that it is therefore the lack or presence of copper in the body that will determine whether or not the bracelet is able to provide any kind of tangible effect on the wearer’s joints.
So, the final theory for copper bracelets advanced by some proponents is that the belief that the wearer holds about the bracelet is where the true power lies.
When looking at the many theories surrounding the use of copper bracelets for arthritis, one thing seems to be clear: while the science does not definitively support a link between copper bracelets and reduced pain, many users of copper bracelets report significant pain reduction through their use.
It seems that there is widespread hype and genuine support by individuals who have chosen to ignore the nay-sayers and try the bracelets for themselves, many of whom have found exactly what it is they were looking for — mild to strong relief from joint pain.
As a result, copper bracelets remain a recommended form of self-healing by holistic healers, reiki practitioners and botanical pharmacists around the world. Their popularity is significant even in eastern cultures, with copper bracelets being sold from the souks of Morocco all the way to the street markets of Indonesia.
How To Use A Copper Bracelet Each Day
A copper bracelet, to a serious user, should essentially become like an additional limb. As mentioned, these bracelets can join your ritual jewelry (such as your wedding ring or medical tag) and be on your person more often than not.
Those who say they have success with copper bracelets seem to be the religious wearers who actually never take them off unless absolutely necessary. This makes sense, as the longer the copper is left on the body, the more significant any impact is likely to be. Wearing the bracelet for two hours each evening, for example, means that there is little to no chance for any copper absorption to take place. Wearing it at all times means even wearing it to bed and in the shower, or while washing the dishes.
If you are simply using a copper bracelet as a preventative aid for expected future bodily ailments, then, according to some proponents, wearing it for half of the day will suffice. According to proponents, the best way to do this is either to wear the bracelet all day as you are out and about, or all night while you sleep.
Typically, for treatment of disease, proponents advise wearing your copper bracelet on your left wrist. Anyone who suffers from anemia, however, is encouraged to wear their copper bracelet on alternating wrists in order to distribute micro-minerals such as iron.
One of the biggest perks of copper bracelets is how long they last. According to some proponents, will only need to replace your bracelet after two years of continued use for optimal effect, but this can be extended if you are not a constant wearer.
How to Clean Copper Jewelry?
Your copper bracelet will rarely collect dirt or grime, and if it does it is easy to wipe down with a damp cloth, the same way you would any other mental object. That being said, copper is a unique substance in that it tends to oxidize very easily, and oftentimes one will confuse this copper oxide (also known as 'patina') for regular filth.
The best way to understand patina is to think of copper coins, like pennies, found in most currencies around the world. Dull looking coins are usually assumed to be incredibly dirty and undesirable, when in reality it’s usually just a layer of oxide that can be easily removed with proper care. Now, that’s not to say pennies aren’t dirty, but the dirt you need to worry about is likely in the form of bacteria and therefore invisible to the naked eye!
As a rule, make an effort to regularly polish your copper bracelet with a gentle cloth. If copper oxide begins to form on your bracelet, then use one of the following methods to strip it off:
The Lemon & Lime Method
Cut a lemon or a lime in half, and sprinkle salt on the open fruit. Rub the exposed, salty side all over the bracelet until the oxide appears to be scrubbed clean. Use the rough face of a kitchen sponge to further loosen any extra oxide. Rinse, and use beeswax as an extra layer of protection if so desired. The Salt & Vinegar Method
Use a shallow dish to drench your copper bracelet in a generous amount of white vinegar and salt. Rub the mix all over the bracelet, until all of the oxide has been dissolved away. Use a cloth to polish.
You can also bring vinegar and salt to a boil on a stove and drop the bracelet into it. The oxide will wash away after a few minutes.
The Ketchup Method
This method works best for light oxidization. Simply rub store-bought ketchup all over the bracelet and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rub it off with a soft cloth, give it a rinse, and then use a clean cloth to polish.
The Flour, Vinegar & Salt Method
Measure a cup of white vinegar and a tablespoon of salt into a bowl. Slowly add flour into the mix, stirring and watching as it turns to a thick paste. Coat the copper bracelet in this paste and leave it to sit for an hour. Use warm water to rinse it off, and a soft cloth to polish.
The above cleaning methods are all at home solutions to solving the problem of copper oxide. There are store-bought products on the market that can be used to do the job, but there really is nothing quite as satisfying as simply using a lemon to revive an old piece of jewelry.
As a further preventative method, regularly coating your copper bracelet with a thin layer of Vaseline can drastically reduce oxidization. Unfortunately, copper oxide occurs simply because of copper meeting air, so it’s very difficult to ever guarantee that it won’t happen.
How to know if your copper bracelets are pure copper?
Copper is proven to be absorbed by the skin, so it is likely that so will lead or other impurities it may contain. Copper, being such a friendly metal, it readily combines with many other elements.
The copper purity at least to be 99.9% to release copper and let your body absorb.
Some use brass, bronze or alloy material with copper color plated outside. You can’t tell from outlook. The easy way is to bend it, if hard to bend it, it should be brass or alloy.
The most effective way, is cut copper bracelet inside with a knife and check if inside color is same with outside copper. If same, it is pure copper. If the color is yellow or silver, that is not pure copper.
