Medicinal benefits of wearing copper bracelets has a long history, all the way back to ancient Egypt, as reported by the Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine. Today, you can find copper bracelets in many places like health food stores and holistic healing centers. Despite their popularity, scientific data backing up the claims of healing are lacking. For those who advocate the use of copper bracelets, proposed benefits focus on reducing joint inflammation and easing pain. Unless you have an allergy to the metal, a copper bracelet is unlikely to have detrimental side effects and you may be pleasantly surprised.
