At Sergio Lub bracelets we use only solid metals (with no plating to wear off). They are pure copper and its alloys:
- Red Metal: Pure Copper, 100% jewelry grade copper.
- Yellow Metal: Jewelers Brass, 85% copper + 15% zinc (two essential minerals).
- White Metal: German Silver, 65% copper + zinc + nickel + silver.
- White Metal: Sterling Silver, 92.5% silver + copper.
Treat inflammation with pulverized copper. - Eber Papyrus, worlds oldest medical text.
Copper, when in contact with the skin, forms chelates with human sweat and is thus absorbed through the skin. Think of a bracelet as a time-release source of copper. - Dr. R. Walker, University of Newcastle, Australia.
Copper chelates are more effective and less toxic than drugs being used to treat arthritis. - Dr. J. Sorenson, University of Arkansas, USA.
Copper is an essential element for the enzyme that regenerates the cartilage lining our bones and to clean up the radicals destructive to human tissues. - Excerpt from the book: The Copper Bracelet and Arthritis by Dr. Helmar H. A. Dollwet, Professor of Biology, University of Akron, Ohio, USA
Benefits of Wearing Magnets
Each one of our magnetic bracelets contains two powerful rare earth neodymium magnets encapsulated in stainless steel and providing a permanent magnetic charge of 4,000 to 5,600 Gauss per bracelet. For precautionary reasons - if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker or other electrical implant - please consult your doctor before wearing magnets.
In 1954, Dr. Linus Pauling, received a Nobel Prize for his discovery of the magnetic properties of hemoglobin. Pauling found that iron, and many electrolytic salts in our blood, circulate bio-magnetically. Therefore, the proximity of a magnetic field may result in an acceleration of circulation and the transfer of energy to all areas of the body.
Chinese doctors have known for millennia that a magnetic field, when next to the body, could markedly increase the wearers vital life force, known as Chi. The observed benefits were found to increase with the magnets proximity to acupressure points. We position the magnets in our bracelets to cover the two important acupuncture points of the wrist.
Replacing a Lost Magnet
In the rare case that a magnet becomes missing from one of our bracelets, please write us with a self addressed and stamped envelope so we can mail free replacements (one of each size). You can then easily glue the new magnet with a 5 or 10 minute 2-parts clear epoxy.
Copper Bracelets and Green Wrists
Q: Will This Bracelet Turn my Wrist Green?
A: Perhaps, it Depends on the pH of Your Skin.
The green marks are more likely to happen when we are stressed and therefore our sweat is more acidic. The extra acid dissolves more copper than we can absorb and the excess accumulates under the bracelet.
Copper is an essential mineral that is absorbed through the skin and this natural invisible process becomes visible when we experience physical, emotional or mental stress.
This ability to be an early stress indicator is one of the reasons that copper has been worn for ages around the world.
Copper marks can easily be washed away, or you may try taking a nap and awake to discover that the green was absorbed while you rested.
