Copper Bracelets
« on: January 17, 2022, 06:23:39 pm »
I've started to have some achey joints and wonder how you have found copper or magnetic bracelets.  I am a coal man so out in all weathers and quite often wet. (Did i mention i live in Wales :raining:). The ones I've seen with magnets have a velcro strap which would be better for me as i shower every day and don't really want to remove a copper bracelet daily as it would probably weaken and snap.  Any views would be appreciated :thumbsup:

I was given a magnetic one years ago. Threw it out - made no difference at all

Never tried copper
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

They tend to leave a green mark around your wrist!

Not tried magnets. Tried copper and only difference was my wrist went green BUT for what it is worth my father in law, who swore his copper bracelet helped him,  had a dog with arthritis and he wrapped copper around his collar. In spite of my cynicism the dog seemed to improve and maintained that improvement. In short therefore , although I am not a convert, I just think there might be something in it!
Give it a go, why not.

I take glucosamine and chondroitin supplements, having seen them make a big difference to my ageing dogs over the years.  I get iMove for me, YuMove for the dogs, from Lintbells.

I take various other supplements as well, but am never 100% certain that they make a lot of difference.  The glucosamine does, though.  I have recently started taking boswellia, and I do think that may be helping too. 

I have never felt drawn to try bracelets.  I have sensitive skin and would expect them to irritate me too much, I think.

Let us know how you get on!

My elderly dog is on Yumove plus, also Librela which was intended for human use (stops the specific pain pathway of rheumatics) She is much better, but how much of that is due to rest and natural recovery who can say?
 I can't use Yumove because it contains 'greenlipped mussels' and I am allergic to shell fish....


@philcaegrug why would you have to remove your copper bracelet every time you shower? You would have to wash it anyway so why not just keep it in place and make sure you dry it and your wrist thoroughly.  You can pick up a copper bracelet for from 6 online, so it's no big deal.

My biggest concern would be wearing a copper braclet whilst dealling with animals .... having nearly lost my ring finger when ring caught on gate with bullock pushing gate ....  I guess copper is a fairly soft metal and would bend in such instances but worth thinking about if you are dealing with livestock daily

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

I had the most awful infection in my arm from wearing a watch with a metal strap (not the expanding type) whilst working on a pig farm.  I got knocked over, the watch strap sprang open in the kerfuffle, the pointy part got dug into my arm, along with a lot of pig poo, as I fell.  I ended up at hospital with the most swollen arm you ever did see, getting heavy duty antibiotics and holding my arm upright for several days, and I still have the scar. 

A year or two later, my Mum wanted to buy me a watch for my birthday, and took me to her local House of Fraser store, Rackhams in Birmingham City Centre.  The watch I liked the most had a metal strap so I explained why I didn't want it.  Of course they could swap the strap, so I chose a leather one, the assistant fitted it and all was good.  She and Mum were then trying to persuade me to have the metal strap as well.  The assistant gently suggested that perhaps on days when I did not think I would end up on a pig farm, I might like to wear the other strap.  I was so taken with her sales style I gave in, but despite not working on another pig farm and going into computing shortly afterwards, I don't think that strap ever came out the box, lol. 

Edited to add, these days we don't feel the need to wear timepieces, do we, having our phones with us at all times!  Back then, not wearing a watch at all whilst working on the farm didn't even occur to us.

From Sally: << Edited to add, these days we don't feel the need to wear timepieces, do we, having our phones with us at all times!  Back then, not wearing a watch at all whilst working on the farm didn't even occur to us. >>


I haven't worn a watch for the 1/4 century I have lived here, and I don't carry a big 'orrible phone around either. The light tells me close enough what time it is, and should I forget then the geese will remind me vociferously  :roflanim:
On the odd days when I do need to know the time, perhaps for an appointment somewhere, I cannot relax all day.


Degloving injuries are a definite danger, not just when working with animals but also machinery, such as tractors, quads, motorbikes.  Long hair, even in a plait can be lethal if you get it caught in machinery, or horror of horrors, a PTO  :o :o :o
