Curiosities and general information
Copper bracelets are luminous jewels believed to be able to exert positive influences on the health of those who wear them.
Already known at the time of the ancient Egyptians, they were in fact worn and known as beneficial and healing objects.
From the energy point of view, these bracelets are considered able to rebalance the psychophysical well-being of the person wearing them.
In fact, it is believed that their appearance changes depending on the state of health of those who wear them on the wrist or ankle: brightness is therefore synonymous with good health while opacity would indicate a state of stress or infirmity.
100% pure copper bracelets are universal jewelry, wearable by both men and women. They can be customized according to taste and are found for sale online and in ethnic stores in various shapes and colors. They are flexible and adapt for this with ease to each person.
To clean these jewels and make them effective and beneficial again, simply wash them with cold water and dry them with a clean cloth. To eliminate the possible oxidation of the metal, simply immerse the jewelry in a solution of vinegar and salt.
The health benefits of copper bracelets
Copper, in contact with the skin, is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The bracelets composed of this material in fact, together with the magnetic bracelets, are traditionally used to combat headaches and counteract rheumatic disorders.
Their effect, although not yet proven by official science, would be to relieve the pain and swelling caused by joint inflammation and to avoid stiffness due to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Therefore, even when a subject suffers from such discomforts, his mobility is not totally compromised by the disease thanks to the effect of copper which, simply worn on the wrist, manages to release a sort of substance useful to reduce inflammation and the consequent pains on the whole body.
In this regard, some scholars argue that the copper of the bracelet is absorbed by the body through the so-called transdermal micronutrition (since copper is an excellent conductor of heat) and, thanks to this process, the person benefits from it.
Even the absorption of copper through sweat is considered more effective than the oral intake of a supplement; since in this way it enters directly into the blood without having to pass through the liver, and the process of preliminary metabolization is avoided.
These bracelets would also seem useful in case of tiredness and physical fatigue, as well as being able to strengthen the defenses of the immune system.
Moreover, they seem to favor the distension of the muscles and prevent the onset of infections. Copper, in fact, was used since ancient times for its antibacterial properties, able to block and prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses and microorganisms.
As evidenced by the ancient papyri, in fact, copper was used to disinfect wounds and to purify water.
Wearing these bracelets would also have positive results on the well-being of the psyche:
The two ends of the bracelet, properly separated and kept at a distance from each other, would be able to convey the positive energies towards the person and to remove the negative ones to the outside.
Copper itself is, in fact, an indispensable metal for the human body, for several reasons:
- promotes the functioning of metabolic processes;
- contributes to the formation and maintenance of the musculoskeletal system;
- it is important for the development and maintenance of different organs, among which: the heart and brain;
- affects cholesterol and glucose metabolism;
- it also plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells and in the absorption of iron in the body;
- it is very important both during pregnancy and in the period of lactation, since breast milk is not naturally rich in copper;
- contributes to the increase of immune defenses;
- hinders the development of free radicals
The alchemical principles want copper to be associated with the planet or the goddess Venus and, therefore, it represents the symbol of justice and love between living beings. Precisely for this reason, many argue that wearing a pure copper bracelet allows the individual to get in touch with nature and always feel in balance with it, with his own being and with the other beings who are part of it: whether they are men, animals or plants.
Copper promotes harmony between the physical body and the astral body, and is used to direct energy flows.
Finally, copper stimulates the activity of the Chakras, or the vortexes of energy that connect the body to the universe.
For the most skeptical it is impossible not to consider the fact that the beneficial effects of the copper bracelet have not been scientifically proven.
In addition, the copper bracelet can not be considered an alternative to medical care:if there are pathologies or particular deficiencies to be treated, you should not arbitrarily suspend the use of drugs prescribed by your doctor; nor neglect the fundamental importance of making an adequate diet
or to lead a healthy lifestyle, so as to bring to the body the right amount of all the substances that are vital to it.
Beyond the actual therapeutic validity of these jewels, therefore, their use is still safe and free of contraindications and side effects.
They can therefore be appreciated and worn as elegant accessories with an oriental look.
People who are allergic to copper, may experience allergic reactions, especially in the skin.
- There is also another case in which it is necessary to avoid wearing the copper bracelet, that is when a subject is suffering from Wilson’s disease, characterized by the accumulation of copper in the tissues. It should be noted that this is a very rare case study.
Wearing a pure copper bracelet can cause an unpleasant unwanted effect, but very easy to solve, or the wrist, or any other part of the skin that is directly in contact with the metal, could turn green. This is due to the oxidation that copper undergoes in a completely natural way, especially when the skin secretes sweat. To solve this small inconvenience, however, just wash the part with soap and water.
