Magnetic Therapy Bracelets

What it says on the tin: Magnetic bracelets.

Why do fast days go so slowly?

Posted by Ab Cdef on October 11, 2016

BOOSTER BLACK TITANIUM MAGNETIC THERAPY BRACELET 32 MAGNETSCLASSIC BOOSTER TITANIUM MAGNETIC THERAPY BRACELET 32 MAGNETSI am writing this article on the eve of Yom Kippur, the most sacred and solemn day in the Jewish calendar.  It occurs ten days after the Jewish New Year and is a Fast day – that is fast in the sense of not eating food. The day itself seems to go by interminably slowly, if only because the fast lasts 25 hours and orthodox Jews spend most of the day praying.

The reason I mention this is not make a big deal about the trials and tribulations of being Jewish but rather to suppose the question: is there a magnetic bracelet or bangle that can help one make it through a fast more easily – or even improve ones energy levels in general.

The answer to the former is no, or at least not specifically. There is no magnetic jewellery product that can improve ones ability to go without food. So bad news for religious zealots, overweight gluttons, etc.

There are however certain magnetic jewellery products that will boost your psychological energy levels if you believe in them and make you feel more confident. Of course, this could be described as the placebo effect or a psychosomatic response. But we’ve been through all this before, and when you’re talking about bracelets that have both powerful magnets and a very nice appearance, an overly academic analysis of the science off of very limited value.

Sports magnets are very much about the here and now. The same goes for energy pendants.

And there is now evidence that magnetic therapy – or transcranial magnetic stimulation to be precise – can help teenagers suffering from depression. And if it works, that’s one thing that’s got to be good.

What people are saying about magnetic bracelets

Posted by Ab Cdef on August 3, 2016

brs4-1-mt-510We’re always hearing expert opinions on magnetic bracelets, from sceptics to parapsychologists to interested parties to those who have an interest in stopping them (i.e. the pharmaceutical companies). But what do ordinary people have to say about magnetic bracelets? To find out, I decided to conduct a sort of review of customer reviews- and I made some interesting discoveries. For example one reviewer on Amazon, wrote:

I did research if they actually worked and what differences they all had. I finally came across this one… and thought lets just give it a try if it works it works. And to my amazement it does work! It actually takes away the pain. I never take it off. It hasn’t lost it colour or anything. It’s really good and pretty!

Okay that might sound like a puff piece. And who knows. Maybe it was a shill working for the retailer that sold it (NOT – I hasten to add – a retailer in any way associated with this blog).  But one swallow does not a summer make. So I went further afield and looked at some of the less than five-star reviews. Some of them were quite surprising. For example this 3-star review of the same copper magnetic bangle as above:

looked fantastic on,even felt I got some relief,however after 4 weeks my arm changed colour and I had to stop wearing it as the bruise coloured ring made me look rather odd!

Another customer sent in a comment explaining that the colour is supposed to come off on the skin as the copper is meant to permeate the skin. One can wash off the surface colouring from the skin, without affecting the copper permeating the skin and working with the magnets to ameliorate the underlying problem. But what about non-copper magnetic bracelets, where all the effect is dependent on the magnets? Here’s a 4-star review for a loop magnetic bracelet:

bras-3a-mtbI’ve had pain in my shoulder for a couple of years. I play squash and beach volleyball a fair bit and probably don’t have the best posture so I imagine these combined to cause the pain. This band was recommended to me by a friend who had a similar problem.

Now, I don’t know whether it is psychological or not, but since I’ve had this band (been a few months now since I bought it) the pain has been a lot less frequent and less intense when it does hurt.

Cautious approval there, combined with a modicum of healthy scepticism. One wearer of a 5-in-1 magnetic bracelet, also gave a 4-star review, in which he stated:

Lot’s of debate around whether or not these bands work or not, personally feel they do.

51gsnSjq9SL._AC_UL160_SR160,160_Pretty straightforward then. Another commented of a titanium magnetic bracelet:

Don’t know if it actually works, but has seemed to help me with arthritis in fingers.

I think it’s fair to say that a pattern is emerging here. Customers appear to be saying that they do not know if the science behind it is valid, but it appears to work for them. This is very important, because if they do not know that the science behind it is valid, then it cannot be that it is working because they believe it! In other words, the effect is not psychosomatic! The wearers are cautiously sceptical or at most open-minded and open to positive persuasion. But their experience tells them that it does indeed work.

So the evidence of customer feedback from previously unconvinced customers is that magnetic bracelets work to alleviate pain. Maybe the “experts” should take heed.

Let’s unite behind magnetic therapy

Posted by Ab Cdef on June 24, 2016


Okay, so it’s all over bar the shouting. Britain has decided – albeit narrowly – and we are truly a nation that is split down the middle. There is even a geographic aspect to the division. And it is not really grounds for rejoicing, even if one is on the winning side. After all, a house divided against itself cannot stand.

But even if divisions themselves cannot be abolished, the divided can at least be reconciled under the banner of peaceful coexistence. There are some worlds in which  opposites attract. Hence marriage! And, of course, magnetism. Magnets attract not only iron but also other magnets. But then it’s a matter of orientation.North poles do not attract other north poles. They attract south poles. Otherwise the magnets would disintegrate!

But there is another sense in which we can negate the harmful effect of division.And that is by seeking common ground in those areas where it can be found. Human beings may differ in their political convictions. But there are certain things that nearly all of us desire.  Like prosperity, happiness and – most important – health.

But health- or rather healthcare – is proving to be a major challenge these days. The costs of providing healthcare to a growing (and maturing) population are going through the roof. Part of the problem is that modern medicine is a victim of its own success. There are medical treatments available today – at a high price that in the past were not available at any price. And this is alone puts a strain on a National Health Service that is committed to providing the best healthcare available. Add to that the fact that our population is both growing numerically and aging, and it becomes easy to see why the NHS is having such a hard time coping.

brt4-15-mt-510This, naturally, encourages people to seek out private treatment instead, to jump the queues at NHS hospitals, clinics and GP surgeries. However, not everyone can afford private treatment. By and large, these private doctors and clinicians are very expensive. It’s the economics of supply and demand…

So what’s the solution? Well, truth-be-told, is that there is no “one size fits all” solution. But there is a school of thought that holds that if you want to promote health in society you need to explore all the options and not just those of conventional medicine. And that is why we, the people, should push for more alternative medicine and therapy. This, of course, includes therapy magnets for healing.

And this, neatly segues into my theme – to which I return, yet again, with no apologies: therapy magnets. By that, I do not mean going into a therapist’s office and spending a fortune on being hooked up to electromagnetic machines. Rather, I mean wearing magnetic on one’s person to counter such chronic ailments as osteoarthritis, which has been proven to benefit from magnetic therapy.

And if one is going to wear a healing magnet on one’s person, it might as well be pleasing to the eye and aesthetically positive, whether it be copper bracelet for arthritis or one the many men’s bracelets packed with sports magnets. My reasoning is that just as magnets are attractive to other magnets and to red blood cells, aesthetic attractiveness has a powerful effect on one’s mentality, promoting the kind of positivity that counters pain and promotes an internal sense of well-being.

Remember that disease is a word that comes from dis-ease. In other words, the opposite of disease is being at ease. And healing bracelets with extra strong magnets that also look good, will certainly promote a sense of ease.

High street woes

Posted by Ab Cdef on May 23, 2016

Unique Bio 4 Elements magnetic bracelet

Ladies braceletHigh streets are always changing. One shop closes and another opens up. Sometimes we see a shopfront with white-painted windows and a lawyer’s notice on the door saying that it has been repossessed for non-payment of rent. That happens when the shop has cash-flow problems. Sometimes the shop goes into liquidation or receivership.

And then, there are times when you see a whole load of charity shops in the high street. That means the landlords cannot find commercial tenants and are looking to produce their business rates. When shops are made available to charities, the freehold owners pay lower business rates (or possibly even no rates at all – but don’t take this as legal advice!). The trouble is, when they manage to find a tenant, they can throw the charity out at short notice.

Anyway, what am I rabbiting on about? I using this as a clumsy way to segue into this week’s blog about the fact that it’s practically impossible to find magnetic bracelets on the high street. So if you want, for example, a Unique Bio 4-elements stainless steel magnetic bracelet like the one on the right, you have to buy it online. The same is true of the Ladies Booster black titanium magnetic therapy bracelet on the right.

This is a pity. Not that there’s anything wrong with buying online. Indeed buying online is now the norm for many people. But there are some who still like those shopping trips – especially the ladies. And it’s only fair that they ought to be able to buy these beautiful products online.

Maybe one of these days, some smart, slick, smoothe-operating entrepreneur will get round to setting up a shop in the high street – no, an emporium – to sell magnetic jewellery. Until then let’s just keep dreaming.


The last one is the Men’s Black Titanium magnetic therapy bracelet with 40 magnets.

Back on track

Posted by Ab Cdef on April 30, 2016



Right now I am listening to the song I’m Sorry, on the television. It is being used as the background in some advertisement. But the reason I mention it is because it should really be the title of today’s blog as I am truly sorry about all the time I have been away. It has been exactly a month since I last blogged to you. And that is too long. I should be putting in an appearence here at least once a fortnight. I could make excuses. But what would be the point? I have kept you waiting and that is all that matters. It is unforgivable.

Mea Culpa, mea culpa, mea maximuma culpa..

I should be a founder member of the Procrastinator’s Association – but I haven’t yet got round to applying and in any case they have a three year waiting list.

And now to business. The subject of my sermon – er blog – today is ankle bracelets.

Ankle bracelets – or anklets to give them their shorter name – date back to the time when it was an outrageous thing for women to display their ankles. Victorian England is perhaps the most famous example, but not the only one. Of course, it was no problem in saucy France, where they invented the Can-can (or is it the Cannes, Cannes?). But some cultures even today demand that women cover themselves from top to toe. There is, however, a tradition that when previously forbidden body parts are displayed in a cultural change, they are also adorned with jewellery. Yesterday it was anklets, today it’s belly-button piercing. Tomorrow it’ll be…

But I digress.

Anklets are a well-established item of ladies jewellery. But why magnetic anklets? Is there a need for them. I think there is. After all, not aches and pains are concentrated in the upper part of the body. People can have pains in their legs as well as their arms, their feet as well as their hands, their ankles as well as their wrists. And magnetic bracelets work best when they are close to the affected area.

How do I find out about magnetic therapy bracelets

Posted by Ab Cdef on March 30, 2016

One of the questions most often asked by people who are just starting to become interested in magnetic bracelets for therapy and pain relief is “How do I find out about magnetic bracelets and their use in magnetic therapy?”

Well the best answer is by looking up the resource page of Magnetic Therapy Bracelets. On that page, you will find all sorts of useful articles and pieces of information. For example, if you are interested in buying a magnetic bracelet to try it out, they have advice on selecting the right bracelet for you. They also have some interesting information on the history of magnetic therapy. They discuss magnetic therapy and health, within the context of alternative medicine and also the specialised use of magnetic therapy for sports injuries – those nagging injuries that can put top sports men and women off their game for weeks or even months, despite medical intervention.

There is even a section on magnetic therapy for animals.

Some of these pages – it has to be admitted – are sparse in their content. But rumour hs it that they are soon to be beefed up with more detail. Wath this space… or rather that space!

Give some one you love a magnetic bracelet for Valentine’s Day

Posted by Ab Cdef on February 8, 2016





St. Valentine’s Day is coming up in less than a week. Wouldn’t that be a nice time to give someone you love a present? Of course, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what to give. There are flowers, cards, and of course that good old standby: the romantic, candle-lit dinner. And then there’s jewellery. The good thing about that is that it applies equally to both genders.

Although traditionally it has been the man who buys the gift for the woman (and traditionally the relationship itself has been between a man and a woman) it does not follow that we can’t break with this tradition.

By that, I am not trying to get men off the hook. If you really love her, you’ll buy her a gift. But the idea in this egalitarian age is that St. Valentine’s Day should be a time for the exchange of gifts.

And so, in honour of St Valentine’s day, Magnetic Therapy Bracelets is doing a promotion. The image on the left shows, just one of the items in the promotion. But there are plenty more. And many others not on promotion but in the wide range of magnetic therapy products available for you.

magnetic bracelets to alleviate winter arthritis

Posted by Ab Cdef on January 28, 2016

Magnetic bracelets and arthritis

As we move towards the end of the first month of the year 2016, the cold weather of winter lingers with us. Those of us who suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis know that this is not a happy time of year. Aside from the winter gloom, the cold brings pain to the joints which is a real bummer – pardon my French. In the past, I have blogged about the debate between the sceptics of  mainstream medicine and those of us who live in the real world. But I think that on this occasion, it is all right to bypass the debate and cut to the chase. Magnetic bracelets offer effective palliative therapy. They do alleviate these arthritic pains. They work. We know they work. And those of us who suffer from arthritis – especially rheumatoid arthritis – should at least try them.

But they also work in other ways. For example, at the visual level they work on the senses and the emotions in the same way as they work on the bloodstream and circulation at the magnetic level. I have written elsewhere about the power of magnetic bracelets  to alleviate winter gloom just by their sheer brightness and visual appearance. Shiny stainless steel and sparkling Swarovski are more than a match for gold and diamonds – not to mention, a lot cheaper!

Classic Ladies Bio 4 element titanium magnetic braceletThe winter of our… discount?

Okay, bad puns aside, January is a great month for picking up bargains and discounts in sales. But even as January gives way to February, and we look forward to St Valentine’s Day, there are reductions to be had. So, let neither the winter gloom nor the pains of arthritis get you down. You can treat yourself to an affordable magnetic bracelet to brighten up your life or alleviate your arthritic pain.

And also remember to shop around for those bargains. The best price yesterday might not necessarily be the best price today.

Gifts make you feel better

And if you are generous of spirit, you can buy one as a gift for a loved one. Take for instance this Classic Ladies Bio4 Elements Titanium Magnetic Bracelet. Do you not think that would bring a smile to the face of your wife, fiancee or girlfriend? I can assure you, it would.

And as mentioned above, we are coming up to that day when lovers show each other just how much they truly love each other. And as the Good Book says: it is better to give than to receive.

What if my arthritis affects my lower joints?

I’m glad you asked. Because Magnetic Therapy Bracelets also has a range of beautiful anklets for women that are just perfect for this. They look nice and feel wonderful. Whether it be stainless steel or ultra-light titanium, regular magnets or four-in-one, these anklets offer aesthetic appeal to augment a well-formed ankle and relief from the strains and pains of cold-weather arthritis.

If you’ve never thought of it before, think of it now. And try one, ladies… try one!

Bracelets, Bangles and Boudicca

Posted by Ab Cdef on December 17, 2015

BoudiccaI used to love the eighties band The Bangles – a “girl band” who could actually play their own instruments! They were a real example of “Girl Power” long before the Spice girls (an overhyped vocal band with no instrumental talent) took up with the slogan and made it their own.

Boudicca2But through the ages there have been many exemplars of Girl Power: Elizabeth the First, Cleopatra and, of course, Boudicca, the Iceni queen who wreaked havoc in Roman Britain after she was flogged and her daughters raped by the vicious Roman conquerors. Apparently, they took exception to her husband leaving her his kingdom in is will. It has even been suggested that they actually killed her daughters. Although neither Tacitus nor Cassius Dio mention it, scholars today have suggested that there was a superstitious belief that it was unlucky to kill a virgin. So they may have raped them first in order to make it safe to kill them without angering the Gods!

Boudicca’s response according to Tacitus (whose father-in-law was a Roman commander based in Britain) was to draw upon the collective outrage of the people – not only the Iceni her own tribe) but also some of their rivals and local enemies – to attack Romano-British cities and set fire to them. Three cities fell to the might of her army before she lost the so-called Battle of Watling Street, where superior Roman tactics and discipline prevailed.

But why do I mention this? Well firstly I have been fascinated by Boudicca for some time now. A few years ago I wrote a thriller called the Boudicca Parchments, a modern story with an ancient twist in which a Jewish-style marriage contract with one of her daughter’s names is discovered in an archaeological dig. On its cover, the book featured a picture of a golden torc (a type of rigid or semi-rigid necklace) of the kind that Boudicca was said to have worn.

This leads to what I am actually getting at. On the Magnetic Therapy Bracelets site are copper bangles that remind me of Boudicca’s torc. The Copper Ropes Magnetic that looks a lot like some of the Golden Torcs that have actually been discovered in Britain during archaeological excavations at Roman-British sites. There is another, the Two Tone Magnetic Bangle that also looks a bit like this.

They both look very nice – and if you don’t like those two, there are hundreds of others to choose from.
