    Testimonials

    I went to the hospital today to get an ultrasound done.  The lady doing the ultrasound was wearing one of your old bracelets.  It was definitely one of your magnetics. She told me that she has to wear it everyday or the pain in her arm is intolerable. She is very serious about wearing it every day for some 20 years.

    Several years ago while riding our motorcycle, my hand would not hold the throttle grip without hurting.  Girls in my shop often wore copper bracelets when they had an issue, so when I saw this, it came to mind that I should try it.  I was taking some over the counter drugs twice a day for arthritis pain but I still had difficulty in working the throttle of the cycle. Then we stopped at a jewelry store that also carried Sergio Lub bracelets and I said let’s try it. Twenty-two years later, using these bracelets, there has been no more arthritis pain and no more over the counter drugs.  I wear these 24/7 and good-bye pain.

    I purchased my original Sergio Lub bracelet in Maine eight years ago and since then, thanks to its health properties, I have avoided a scheduled rotator shoulder surgery. Wearing the bracelet, this 71 year old Gramma can once again throw a softball. I never take it off.

    A friend in choir came to practice in a thumb brace and after she told me about her troubles, I lent her my Sergio Lub bracelet. She texted me the following day to say that not only had her thumb stopped hurting, but she had already ordered her own.

    I bought one of your bracelets from our bookstore. I was having a nerve problem in my wrist and it disappeared after two hours of wearing it! Now I'm telling everyone to get one.

    I first did not believe in copper bracelets but my knuckles were inflamed as large as golf balls so I tried wearing a Sergio Lub.  I am happy to report that my pain went away in three days and the inflammation in a couple of months. I wear two bracelets now.

    I purchased my copper and magnet bracelet with reservation 
    about two years ago. I was experiencing constant lower back pain and I was told by the store owner about the positive affects of copper and magnets. I have been suffering with back pain and ankle swelling for over ten years starting at age 22. I was open and willing to try new methods of ridding this pain, so I purchased a bracelet. After about three weeks, the pain ceased and I was able to get out of bed easily, bend and walk and exercise without pain! I continued to be pain free for two years. I won't go another day without wearing one.

    I have arthritis, and after wearing Sergio Lub, I was able to close my hand. I have not taken them off my wrists since purchasing them. Also, the second one I purchased was for a pain I had in my left top thigh and after having the bracelet on for a period of time the pain never came back.

    From Weapons to Bells - Copper in History

    From Weapons to Bells - Copper in History

    Copper was the most valuable metal for a thousand years.

    As our technology advances different metals become more valuable.  Silver for example was more valuable when we used it for photography.  Platinum demand soared with catalytic convertors, and now lithium is in great demand thanks to the new batteries. 

    The metal that was most highly desired for the longest time is copper.  This is because copper is needed to make bronze, the metal used for making the best weapons during the Bronze age.  In China this period started around 1,700 BC and ended 1,000 years later with the adoption of steel weapons around 700 BC.

    Many people heard of the early Chinese strongman who listened every morning to a tune that involved the ringing of each one of his large collection of bronze bells.

    The common understanding was that he enjoyed the music.  This was probably true, but there was a more practical and less known fact.

    After winning a war, the prevailing leader will keep his own guard well armed and will order all other weapons melted and made into bells.  Listening to a familiar tune was a quick way to take inventory and, if a note was missing, then know that trouble was brewing and to prepare accordingly.
