Just been reading an article in one of the supplements in the sunday mirror about insoles called copper heelers theres a few claims off ppl with R.A that these insoles are very beneficial to joint pain etc and a few medical ppl doctors consultants etc are talking them up. Was just wondering if anyone on here has either used them or heard of anyone else using them and if they're any good or not.
Copper heelers?: Just been reading an article in one of... - NRAS
I got a very expensive bio magnetic bracelet a few years ago after reading how groups of mechanics never seemed to get arthritis in there hand or wrists as it was down to being in contact with copper and magnetic parts but iam sad to say I wasted my money but the first few weeks of using the bracelet I did have headaches!
The bones going up to my thumbs started hurting in 2000. I got copper bracelets because my father would never wear them and he had terrible arthritis in his wrist. Anyway, the pain stopped soon after I started wearing the bracelets, but last year, 2017, the pain started again and seems to have spread to other places, so I was wondering about these copper heelers, but it sounds as if they aren't likely to help.
I've tried lots of different remedies and cures over the years but none have worked for me. I do feel that when we're in pain we're vulnerable and willing to try anything but ask yourself these questions ....if they worked why do our consultants make us risk taking drugs with potential dangerous side effects? If they worked why aren't the NHS investing in them? Why aren't we all cured by now? Why are they so expensive?
People do try to make money out of the vulnerable.
Perhaps for some people they do believe they work and if you feel you want to buy some then perhaps if you are cured you can come on here and tell us all and we can get some too

Hey Linda your not wrong and I kind of agree with what you are saying but I have got to say I saw a reflexologist recently and a few other people and have had blood work done and many other things and found out I was still suffering with gut issues and nasal congestion from ear infections that I had many years ago when I was a child and even though no one I am seeing is gonna make any promises that they will cure my RA. I will say this since I started doing things like tui nu massage and acupuncture etc I would never of realised that my body was so damaged and still after years and years off antibiotics.
thanks . I will let you know how things work out for me but what I have noticed is that since the reflexologist told me that I was still have gut issues, adrenal issues etc I can do things like take supplements and other things that will perhaps heal a lot of the congestion that is still going on in my body.
It is scary to think that that I am still having gut issues from the antibiotics that I took many years ago as a child.
I may always be on a small amount of medication but my goal is to remove any of the toxicity in my body and to stay positive.
Hope things work out for you as well.
I read about this & on looking on various websites found that it is usually directed at OSTEO arthritis sufferers....not those with RD!
It's like all the headlines we read " Magic Cure for Arthritis" but they never say what type arthritis they mean....mind you as far as I have found 99% of the general public think Arthritis is Arthritis full stop!
If only they knew!
I've given up taking notice of those articles & just keep on taking the drugs in the hope that one day I find the one that will last for longer than a couple of years!
