I have a friend who wears one and swears by it. The clasp on my bracelet broke, and I am unable to find a new bracelet. Any suggestions on where to purchase one? I've tried Walmart, K-Mart and CVS. about 5 years ago, djopgenort said... For $10 if it seems to help -- go for it! Who knows -- maybe the "awareness" of the bracelet keeps him oriented a specific point in space (his wrist), or gives him confidence so he moves more purposefully. HOW it acheives those results is almost irrelevant --that "placebo effect" is good stuff, especially since it's not replacing any working "conventional" treatement! about 6 years ago, MusherMaggie said... I am surprised (or maybe not) to hear you discount supplements as being of value while admitting that dementia drugs have limited benefit. A good healthy diet, with added high-quality supplements, can have dramatic effect on well being! over 6 years ago, besteone said... I pray for everyone who is a care giver to the elderly, for their patience and skills, and love they give. I also pray for the elderly person(s) that they have the peace and patience with their conditions and their caregiver. This isnot an easy time for both. I pray for myself being 78 and numerous medical conditions that I can make my way through the end of my life with dignity and pleae no pain. I pray in Jesus name. over 6 years ago, momma123 said... Seeing is believing. I did in the local mall. It does work for your balance. Try it before you buy it. You will see. I could not believe it. I tried over and over to see if maybe it was mind over matter. over 6 years ago, romamire said... This enables me to find perspective in an otherwise suspicious conundrum. I can use this for objective information for my ailing partner. Thank you over 6 years ago, Mrs Knutson said... In addition to your information : there is an amazing book our that can be gotten on Amazon.com. It is called: The Brain Training Revolution by Dr. Paul Bendheim, a noted neurologist. He has studied the brain for 30 years. The book is written for seniors. The Brainsavers program for exercise and cognitive workouts works. It worked for my husband and can work for you, I urge you to read it. If anyone is interested in the Brainsavers program let Dr. Bendheim know. Thank you! over 6 years ago, Incostress said... There has just been a big thing about this on the UK TV and the manufacturers have been ordered to pay compensation to their customers as there are not any medical claims nor medical trials to say it does what it does. You know the saying if it sounds too good to be true then it is!! Personally I find yoga and meditation a good solution, but again it isn't a cure. If you have health problems the best thing to do is to seek medical advice from a qualified doctor or physiotherapist. over 6 years ago, rufus41 said... I would like to hear from someone wearing this bracelet that has had any type of problem especially a problem with their heart or blood pressure. Thank you. almost 7 years ago, want2b29 said... I heard about this miraculous bracelet on TV also. Being a sceptic by nature and life, I've learned that there is "always' a gimic involved in statements such as the one I was hearing about on TV. People were immediately cured of balance problems, energy, falls, etc. I said to my husband, "do you think that if these bracelets would do away with these problems, wouldn't our doctors know something about this "miraculous" wrist band"? After all,if this item could do all it says, a lot of peple would stand to profit from it and our doctors would be shouting it from the rooftops. Iam now 65 and I suffer these problems, especially balance and falling and I would be so happy to hear of a "cure" but, I'm not buying a magic bracelet that's going to fix these "major" problems for us seniors. Please don't believe everything you see or hear. Before you send your money to these people, call your doctor and ask him/her what they think. almost 7 years ago, a fellow commenter said... I was a dope and tried iRenew and the product is garbage. Several weeks ago someone gave me an EFX band and I noticed some change overall. I think there may be something to these, but as with anything, there will be knock offs that sully the name of reputable vendors. I'd recommend trying an EFX band.
