Question

Can copper bracelets relieve the pain of arthritis, and do magnets have healing properties?

Answer

Kat - The answer to the magnet question is, no. There's absolutely no evidence that magnets have healing properties. It's all a scam. In terms of copper bracelets, there's a lot of old wives' tales about copper bracelets and when they've been investigated for arthritis, again, the scientific studies don't actually show any significant benefit. There may be psychological benefit. The placebo effect as we know is extremely powerful, but no. There's no real scientific evidence.
