Copper health

Recently my awareness was brought to a support group on Facebook that deals with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. After a short questionnaire I was accepted with a warm welcome to the group by one of the admins and other group members. On the actual site, many members introduced themselves, sharing information of what has worked for them. A small percentage has actually overcome their diseases, while others were inquiring, eager to learn how to change their stars.

So far I have downloaded what is to be my ultimate food guide, and there is much that needs to be changed in addition to eating the right foods. It can be overwhelming to say the least, but it needs to be broken down into smaller steps to see what things can be implemented now, while layering on more as I go. Copper is perhaps one of those things, and it might be holding some answers for me.

After my initial introduction, a member has commented and left a picture for me to check out the “As seen on TV – Copper Gloves.” It is said that they help with stiffness and arthritis pain and it led me to do a little more research. I found copper drinking vessels and the benefits sound quite promising. It is said that drinking water from a copper cup helps….

Kill bacteria

Stimulate the brain

Regulate the functioning of the thyroid gland

Soothe arthritis pain

Boost skin health

Slow down aging

Improve digestion

Get rid of anemia

Lower the risk of cancer and heart disease

I think all of us could benefit from this. Has anybody tried or heard of this? I would love to hear your findings.

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Agree. Informative. My uncle wore a copper bracelet and my ex wore these knee compression sleeves that were infused with copper. It helped them relieve joint stiffness/pain. Have you thought about taking copper pills? I’ll have to read up on it.

    1. I have not checked into copper pills yet and have to read up in that as well. I got some copper gloves you wear at night and it takes a minute to get used to going to bed with gloves. I don’t know if they help and make a big difference as far as stiffness but they are definitely soothing while you wear them.

  2. I have tried the copper infused gloves but found they did not work. My father wore a copper bracelet for thirty years and swore by it. But, he also swore by his Buckeye that he kept in his pocket. I bought copper cups a few months ago but honestly have never tried them. I think I will start using them. Can’t hurt I suppose.

  3. Not tried it, but we do need trace amounts of copper for health. Copper bracelets have been around since ancient times, along with many copper artifacts. Copper will kill bacteria which is why they have been uses as water pipes for many years. Copper has been tested for arthritic pain relief with inconclusive results. While lots of people feel relief, researchers were not able to rule out subjective placebo effect for many of the tested subjects. If it works for you Rhapsody, embrace it. If not, we’ll copper looks lovely as jewelry! 😍❤️❤️❤️

    1. I found the same and my copper gloves feel soothing when I wear them overnight, but I think I still have the same amount of stiffness in the morning. Still a little win if we can feel content and catch a little break I guess. ❤️
