Product Review: Pure Energy Band

So Mom came home from an afternoon shopping trip a few months ago and dropped a small box into my lap. “I want you to wear this every day,” she said to me. The box contained a small rubber bracelet with two holographic circles. The package read Pure Energy Band for Pain, Inflammation, and Circulation. “Did you really spend money on this?” I asked, completely skeptical. Don’t get me wrong, I totally support alternative healing. Still, I found it hard to believe that a piece of rubber could provide the results that the box claimed.

Mom paid $20 for the bracelet, though a quick Google search showed me that these little things can cost as much as $50. Crazy, I thought. I put the bracelet on anyway, since I was in the middle of a flare and desperate for some relief.

I’ve worn this thing religiously every day for 6 months now and haven’t taken it off for more than 5 minutes at a time (since the band is rubber, you can shower with it). I’m not really sure the bracelet is as effective as the claims make it out to be. For one, I can say with 100% certainty that you’re still going to flare and feel pain. However, my flares are not as frequent anymore. But even then, I’m not going to attribute that to the bracelet because there are too many other treatments that I have to factor in to how I’m feeling.

Bottom line: Purchase at your own risk. If you’re looking for something to stop your arthritic pain completely, this isn’t it. Save your money. And like I said, I can’t guarantee that the changes I’m feeling have anything to do with the bracelet. Personally, I would never spend my money on one.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Thank you

      Actually, to have a basic blog on WordPress doesn’t cost anything. I don’t pay to have this blog, unless you want to count the amount of time I put into it. Just create an account, choose a name and template for your blog,and you should be good to go. WordPress also has forums that offer lots of advice and support.
