About 20 years ago before my husband, Dr. Len Saputo, was using the photon stimulator to help his patients with pain, inflammation and a variety of other ailments, I had a very sore thumb joint that radiated into the palm of my hand below my thumb and into my wrist. I also had a “trigger” thumb that developed at the same time. My thumb joint was throbbing and so painful that I went to the orthopedist for a cortisone injection after trying DMSO, acupuncture and various alternative creams. After a while, it started hurting again. After my third injection, the doctor said he couldn’t do any more injections and if it continued to bother me, he’d like to operate. I was not happy about that idea, especially since my husband’s cousin had recently had surgery on his thumb and developed a serious MRSA infection and it was now a gaping wound and he was getting massive amounts of antibiotics.
Coincidentally, my husband came home from work with a beautiful copper and brass bracelet that he said one of his patients made and gave to him (Sergio Lub) and he wanted me to have it. Nothing was said about the healing properties of copper. I thought it was pretty and put it on and ended up wearing it to bed all night. In the morning, it was as if a miracle happened. I was pain free and even the trigger thumb disappeared.
I was so excited that when my brother in law complained of a “tennis wrist”, I loaned it to him. He excitedly called me a couple of hours later to report the disappearance of the pain in his wrist and was back on the tennis court playing. I have loaned it to others and recommended Sergio’s healing copper bracelets.
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.
