    Customer Testimonials

    When I first wore these copper bracelets, I had a lot of pain in my thumbs and was losing strength in my hands from swelling and arthritis. The pain disappeared in a few weeks and has not returned, except once when I quit wearing them for a while. One of my first bracelets got lost, and I just received the new one and it has reduced pain in my arm and right side of my body. These are magic bracelets with the combination of copper and magnets, and lovely too. I'm proud to wear them, and do, day and night.

    I did have to quit sewing when my arthritis got bad at age 50 but thankfully I found Sergio’s copper bracelets. Been sewing and quilting every day since then.
    - Sandy C. 


    I have worn your bracelets for about 20 years. I have tried others, some were very pretty, but without the magnet spacer at the ends, I get a weeping sore under the ends. So all I buy is yours because they cause no other problems and relieve the arthritis in my hands. 
    - Christine T. 


    I love your jewelry and somehow it made my carpal tunnel pain disappear! Thank you! Thank you! I work at a large clinic and my colleagues cannot yet believe that I replaced my ugly brace for a beautiful Sergio Lub bracelet!
    - Lonnie F.


    It has been about six weeks since I have been wearing one of Sergio’s copper bracelets. I do now know whether or not it’s the bracelet (must be) but I have virtually no more pain from arthritis and my golf handicap has improved considerably.”
    - Richard W. 


    I am a person who has had rheumatoid arthritis for over 20 years now. It has 
    caused me quite a lot of pain and trouble through the years. I do take medications that I am fortunate to be able to take through my health insurance, however, there are times that the medications just don't keep the inflammation and pain down, and pain medications may be disruptive to the body.

    I find magnetic therapy very helpful and have been using them over the years. Since I discovered Sergio Lub, I am a customer for life. Gone are the days of plain or sub-standard pieces of jewelry. I love (!) my Copper Sage Magnetic Bracelet. I can literally feel the strength and energy from it. Of course I have many other designs as well, but I use the larger piece on my right side due to scoliosis, and I always wear one on my left side too.

    Since I am such a believer, I also sell to friends, family and co-workers. My husband loves these too and swears that his magnetic Seven Metals has cured his tennis elbow. While we don't make claims for the medical community, we can tell you what has helped us.

    I just want everyone to know that I personally am a believer in this therapy, it works for me, and I highly recommend it. Besides, I think they look great on me and my wonderful hubby too!
    - Stephanie T.


    Just recently I started experiencing some pain in my hand. I put the bracelet on just to wear it and most of the pain went away. 
    - Marcia 


    On my recent vacation to Canada, I purchased one of your magnetic copper bracelets, and I can’t tell you how much it has helped my chronic wrist pain. It has been a joy to wear.
    - J.H. 


    Your product is wonderful. My wrist is pain free as long as I wear it. I have worn it since 2000 and have no problem holding a pen, typing, or writing.
    - M.J. K 


    We are in our mid forties and have been noticing some joint stiffness. Since we started wearing the bracelets we feel much better. 
    - A.W. 


    I started wearing your bracelet three weeks ago. I have osteo-arthritis in my left hand, and had to wear a brace all day. Since wearing your bracelet, I no longer need a brace!
    - Sheila D.

     

    The Antimicrobial Properties of Copper

    The antimicrobial properties of copper have been touted for centuries ever since ancient peoples first wore the brilliant metal. Today, as we face heightened health concerns that run from chronic arthritis to circulating viruses, we’ve been asked to share a compendium of information on the topic.

     

    1. 

    Copper and its alloys (brasses, bronzes, cupronickel, copper-nickel-zinc, and others) are natural antimicrobial materials. Ancient civilizations exploited the antimicrobial properties of copper long before the concept of microbes became understood in the nineteenth century.

    The antimicrobial properties of copper are still under active investigation. Molecular mechanisms responsible for the antibacterial action of copper have been a subject of intensive research. Scientists are also actively demonstrating the intrinsic efficacy of copper alloy "touch surfaces" to destroy a wide range of microorganisms that threaten public health.”  Read more …

    Metallic Copper as an Antimicrobial Surface  

    “Bacteria, yeasts, and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces, and the term “contact killing” has been coined for this process. While the phenomenon was already known in ancient times, it is currently receiving renewed attention. This is due to the potential use of copper as an antibacterial material in health care settings. Contact killing was observed to take place at a rate of at least 7 to 8 logs per hour, and no live microorganisms were generally recovered from copper surfaces after prolonged incubation. The antimicrobial activity of copper and copper alloys is now well established, and copper has recently been registered at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the first solid antimicrobial material.”  Read more …

    Rediscovering Copper Properties

    Old records show that over 500 years ago, the Aztec civilization treated sore throats by gargling with a copper mixture. Earlier yet, in India, Persia, and Egypt, copper was used to treat lung diseases and skin conditions. In the 1800s, European physicians were using copper to treat arthritic patients. Research in the 1900s added the beneficial roles of copper compounds for mental and heart health.  Read more ...

    Copper Destroys Viruses and Bacteria. Why Isn't It Everywhere?

    "Today, we have insight into why a person handling copper day in and day out would have protection from a bacterial threat: Copper is antimicrobial. It kills bacteria and viruses, sometimes within minutes. In the 19th century, exposure to copper would have been an early version of constantly sanitizing one's hands.

    Since then, studies have shown that copper is able to destroy the microbes that most threaten our lives. It has been shown to kill a long list of microbes including norovirus, MRSA, a staph bacteria that has become resistant to antibiotics, virulent strains of E. coli that cause food-borne illness, and coronaviruses—possibly including the novel strain currently causing the COVID-19 pandemic."  Read more ...

    Copper Can Destroy Respiratory Viruses

    “Hospital administrators should take a new look at copper, new research suggests, with evidence emerging that the metal can halt the spread of a wide array of diseases. Long before Pasteur invented the germ theory of disease, copper, and alloys such as brass, were touted as protectors against ill health. While many such pre-scientific remedies have failed rigorous testing, copper has been demonstrated to be a powerful antibiotic.  Read more …


    The molecular mechanisms responsible for the antibacterial action of copper are still being studied by our scientists and we are not aware of research being done yet regarding the antimicrobial properties of wearing a copper bracelet.

    Knowing the scientifically proven ability of the red metal in preventing the spread of disease, it seems reasonable to assume that wearing copper may help us deal with public health challenges.
