Copper insoles were invented by Original Copper Heeler.
Around 10 million people in the U.K suffer from arthritis. It affects people of all ages, including children. Copper insoles are lightweight, ultra thin, and contain 14 times more copper than a traditional copper bracelet.
What they do
Insoles can utilise the pain-relieving properties of copper—a trace mineral, which like iron and zinc, is an essential nutrient for wellbeing. It helps in the formation of haemoglobin, and protects nerve fibres and the immune system.
Studies also suggest that copper may reduce the development and progression of arthritis. Because the body cannot make copper, it is necessary to supply it with regular amounts.
The idea of ‘copper therapy’ has been around for thousands of years. Historians of medical science can trace the use of copper as far back as the early Greeks. Testimonials from Copper insole users indicate that whatever the scientific reasons, wearers feel significantly better when using copper.
How they work
When copper comes into contact with the skin, it forms chemical compounds called chelates, which play an important role in oxygen transportation. The 250,000 sweat glands on the soles of the feet provide an ideal environment for optimum copper absorption. When a copper insole is placed in the shoe, it provides a convenient and complementary way of encouraging copper into the body, where it is circulated to bring pain relief.
Studies show that copper is an affective anti-inflammatory and can relieve discomfort. Furthermore, they also show that maintaining the recommended level of copper in our bodies can have a positive effect on health conditions, in addition to inflammation. For example, copper can benefit arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, rheumatism, osteoporosis, sports injuries, and more.
Charles Goldman, M.Inst. Ch.P D.Ch.M, a chiropodist says: ‘For a number of my patients the Copper Heeler has been life changing. Pain can be extremely difficult to manage and many people have exhausted the options available to them. My patients find the Copper Heeler convenient and comfortable with a cumulative effect on their pain. I favour anything that can lead to a reduction in the need for drugs with long-term side effects.’
