Magnetic Bracelets for Men

Therapy Using Magnetic Ion Technology
Magnetic ion bracelets are basically designed to help calm your nerves. They are utilized in golf, for example, because golf can be a nerve-racking environment making you feel uptight. In addition, it's claimed that you can have enhanced cell regeneration, and that you can revitalize your body from the stresses of normal life by using magnetic ion bracelets. Most companies use two-dimensional magnets, which are inexpensive to make and do not penetrate deeply enough to be effective. However, some companies are employing alternating north-south polarity orientation, which in effect increases the area of the magnetic field, and these supposedly penetrate deeper into your muscles and tissue fibers.

The concept behind magnetic therapy comes from the fact that we are surrounded by positive ions that get absorbed into our bodies from such sources as mobile phones and other electronic devices, so some magnetic ion bracelets have minus ions to help counteract this affect. Having too many positive ions in your body can cause a decrease in concentration; it can promote muscle and joint pain, and can even make you feel sick to your stomach. By using these magnetic ion bracelets you can supposedly help restore the balance in your life.

Magnets and Therapy

These therapeutic bracelets can be worn on your wrist, ankle, or you can get ones that are necklaces. They are offered in a vast range of colors and sizes to suit your taste and preferences. I personally have never tried magnetic ion bracelets, but I guess the concept sounds reasonable enough. Even if they don't work, I'm wondering if there is a placebo effect, fooling your mind into thinking it is beneficial therapy and that they are good for your health.

So I'm curious, have any of you ever tried using magnetic ion bracelets, or other similar gadgets, such as copper jewelry, or other ionic products? Have you found them to do as they claim, or are they just a waste of money? I know that these items are very popular amongst golfers.

Magnetic Ion Bracelet
If you have been following along with my posts you may have noticed my interest in magnetic ion bracelets. My wife bought me a golf glove with negative ion technology built into it and I have been wearing it when I play golf or when I am practicing, but I don't think I have had it on long enough to know if it is working yet. So I decided to buy a bracelet that had positive magnets in it. That way I could wear it all the time to see if I can feel any difference with it.

Magnets, Golf, and Ionization
I was in Orlando and my wife and I we're shopping around at a flea market and I came across a booth that was selling magnetic and copper bracelets. The magnetic bracelets had a sign near them that claimed that they are good for athletes, such as golfers. The price was only $25 and the magnets seemed to be pretty strong, so I bought it. I like the look of it, it is silver and very well built. I figured that if the magnetic ion therapy ended up being useless at least the bracelet still looked nice and I could still wear it for fashionable purposes.

Magnetic Therapy Conclusion
Well, I have been wearing the bracelet for a while now and I have to admit that I still haven't really noticed any difference. Every so often I test the strength of the magnets to make sure that they still work and they are still very strong. Mine have began to rust a little. Since I don't feel any real affects, I am going to buy a negative ion bracelet to see if it has any affect. In time, I will be able to make the determination of whether or not, magnetic ion bracelets, work for me. So what are your thoughts?

12/5/09 Gift Ideas for Golfers

Golf Golf Ideas from Amazon
It has been a couple of days since I have updated this blog about golf gifts that you can purchase for the avid golfer in your life. As I have said in previous posts, all the items that I mention here are bestsellers over on

The Samsonite Golf Trunk Organizer (Model 615) is still the hottest selling item right now on Amazon. The price is $29.95, which makes it a great bargain and it really can help keep yourself, or anyone else that loves to play golf, really organized.

Here are 3 new items that are also selling great over at Amazon, that can be used as unique gift items for golfers:

The first one is the Nike Tour 2 Mixed Recycled B-Grade Experienced Professional Golf Balls (60-Ball Pack).

A lot of golfers are hesitant to buy high-quality golf balls because they oftentimes lose quite a few when they play a round of golf. However, you could get them these 2 bags of mixed, recycled golf balls for a pretty good price. That means the golfer you're buying a gift for will get 60 good quality golf balls. They come in easy carrying mesh bags and even though they are slightly off color and have small mars on the cover, they still play almost as good as brand new balls, but at a much lower price. Trust me, if the person you are buying a gift for is a high handicapper, he or she will love having these golf balls! If they are anything like me, we are always looking around on the golf course for lost balls that fit this exact description. My bag is full of golf balls like this. You don't feel as bad when you drop one into the water or if you fly one into the woods. Tip: These bags of balls are an assortment of Nike golf balls, and the bag is re-useable.

The second bestselling golf gift idea is another golf ball product. The Top-Flite XL Distance Golf Balls (15-Pack, White) are good golf balls for a really good price and instead of coming only as a dozen in a box, you get 15 golf balls.

My final personalized golf gift idea is the Wilson Golf Bag Tag/Score Keeper.

This handy device makes it easy for golfers to digitally keep their golf scores. It is hand held but also has a clip so it can be attached to a belt loop or to a golf bag. It is only $7.25 and almost any golfer will love it.
