I have been to see a friend in Wales this week, who had a lot of joint pain. She now uses something called a Medicur Unit. "Medicur is a fully portable system, which when activated, provides pain relief by promoting the natural healing process, including the regeneration of bone and tissue. It works by releasing gentle, electro magnetic emissions, which penetrate deep into the affected areas. Having no leads or complicated settings it fits snugly in the hand allowing the user to take it wherever he or she wishes to travel."
My friend swears by it now. She said it took a few weeks before she felt some relief, but now she would not be without it. If you are interested contact: Snowden Healthcare, 37 Abbey Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 5NG. Tel: 08700 771 772.
They have a Freephone number for free consultation concerning your condition: 0800 026 4663. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
They also sell self adhesive plasters warm on the skin, containing high purity zinc and copper in a magnetic field to provide pain relief. I have no recommendations for these yet.
If anyone is using either of these products at the moment, please let me know what you think!
NB: I have had a lady contact me to say that she uses the Medicur Unit to help with relaxation and sleep. She uses it on low to help her get some sleep at night.
May 2012 - Additional Info from a member:
I also use the medicur device for grade iii osteoarthritis in my knees and also to try and manage pain for the herniated thoracic disc over the last 12 months. It definitely works for my knees and I can get the pain to a level where I can sleep, also it has taken the edge off my thoracic pain. I think it is a brilliant device and would recommend to anyone.
