This really isn’t an RV topic, but I wanted to share something with you, besides the fact that we are still moving from the bus to the Winnebago, between a never-ending series of rain storms that have made the move a real hassle.
Like most people, I have seen magnetic jewelry for sale at RV rallies and craft shows, and probably like most folks, I really didn’t give it a whole lot of credibility. I had heard that wearing a bracelet of magnetic hematite could reduce all kinds of physical pain, and over the years I have even had friends tell me that they have had amazing results when they tried the things. Still, I guess I am too much of a skeptic, so I wasn’t convinced. Until now.
For two or three months now, I have been dealing with a lot of pain in my right elbow, to the point where it seemed like I was taking Advil or Tylenol a couple of times a day just to keep the pain at bay. I’ll be having my annual checkup at the VA hospital in Lexington, Kentucky soon, and it was one of the things I had planned to talk to my primary healthcare provider about.
I have also been dealing with either a bone spur or something on my tailbone, which over the winter got so bad that I could not ride my bicycle, and just sitting in the office chair I use at my desk was extremely uncomfortable after more than an hour or two. That was also on my list for when I have my medical checkup.
Last year at our Ohio Gypsy Gathering rally, vendors Russ and Debbie Davis were selling magnetic bracelets, and they gave me one. I promptly laid it down on my desk and forgot all about it.
About three weeks ago I came across the bracelet when I was sorting through all of the stuff I allow to pile up on my desk, and I slipped it onto my wrist just to get it out of the way. About three or four hours later I suddenly realized that my elbow had stopped hurting! I was amazed, because the pain had been there so long, and it took me a while to notice that it was gone.
I have been wearing the bracelet pretty much fulltime ever since, and if I had not experienced it myself, I’d still be very skeptical. If I had to put it in mathematical terms, I’d honestly have to say that the pain has been reduced by 80%. My elbow still hurts if I lay on it wrong at night, or if I leave it extended in any position for a long time, but otherwise, I really am not aware of it any longer.
Just this week there was a vendor at the Carriage RV rally selling magnetic bracelets, and I bought a couple more. When Miss Terry and I were talking about how much the bracelet has helped my elbow, I suddenly realized that the pain in my tailbone has been dramatically reduced too.
Yeah, I know some of you are shaking your heads right now, but all I can tell you is what I have experienced. I can’t explain how it works, but for me, it does. I’m not selling magnetic jewelry, and I’m not pointing you toward any particular vendor who does. But I know I have felt a tremendous reduction in my pain levels since I’ve been wearing the bracelet, and for the few bucks they cost, you might want to give one a try. What do you have to lose?
