HA! I sure as heck didn't think so. At least not until I was introduced to the "PureEnergy" bracelet. It has honestly changed my life. So, of course, I want to share my thoughts about it with all of you.
It all started when Scott & I went to the Big E. We went with our friends, Nicole and her husband, Dan. Nicole, being incredibly outgoing, (I wish I was!) walked right up to one of the venders who was selling the "PureEnergy Band".
The signs around his vending area said, "Want to relieve stress & anxiety? Try a PureEnergy Band!"
UM... HI! I'm like the poster child for anxiety. I've been battling with it for years, but after the Sandy Hook School tragedy in my hometown, my anxiety had gotten worse. It started to impact the way I lived my life. And that scared me. After I opened up about my struggle with anxiety on the blog, I got a whole lot of positive feedback that really helped. And though it did get better, it is still something that I live with almost every day.
Anyone who has the key to absolute anxiety relief would be my best friend. But, I thought... there is no way. There is no way that some silly rubber bracelet could completely destroy my anxiety. So, as Scott & I watched... Nicole talked to the man about the bands. He explained about each one and then continued to demonstrate how they work, by doing a balance test on her.
She stood straight and had her arms outstretched for balance. Then, she was asked to lift one foot so that she was balancing on the other foot. The vender then put pressure on one of her extended arms and asked her to push up on his hand as he tried to push down on her arm. Within seconds, she had almost fallen over.
Then, he asked her to hold the PureEnergy band in one hand as he did the exact same balance test again. This time though, Nicole had a lot more balance and didn't fall over! It was pretty incredible to watch. After he talked with her some more, she asked her husband to try the demonstration.
The vendor demonstrated on Dan, and he too became less suspicious of a possible scam. They both ended up purchasing PureEnergy bands.
Then the man wanted to demonstrate the balance test on me. And I did it. It was awesome, I'm not gonna lie. He had me pretty hooked, but still not entirely convinced. And he could tell.
Other people had started to group around his vending area. A married couple approached me and said, "Buy one. You won't regret it. We've been wearing our bands for 3 years and haven't taken them off. They've been a lifesaver!"
That all sounded great.... but...."How on earth can this bracelet get rid of anxiety? Anxiety has nothing to do with my balance," I said to him.
He babbled on about the "frequencies" in the bracelet and how they just have a way of easing the anxiety you feel in your chest/shoulders/neck.. or wherever you happen to "carry" your stress/anxiety. He said, "How about you buy one and try it out and if you don't feel any relief, you can come back by the end of the day and I'll refund your money"
I thought... ok... SOLD!
Guys- I kid you not. I put on the bracelet... and within 10 minutes I was feeling better. I can't even explain it in words. It just felt like a HUGE weight had been lifted off my chest. I felt more relaxed. I could feel it in my shoulders, my face, my neck, my back, and my chest.
It is also supposed to help you sleep better.
I am a good sleeper for the most part... but I often get up several times because of back aches or what have you.
Since buying the bracelet and wearing it at night... I sleep like a baby. In the 2 weeks that I have had this bracelet, I have only woken up twice from a deep sleep.
I don't have any pain in my shoulders anymore. Or my neck. Or my back. The pain is gone! Also-- during dance class, my left ankle usually hurts a lot (I sprained it real bad years ago and it just has always hurt). Since buying the bracelet, I have no pain in my left ankle at all.
I haven't had any feelings of anxiety. I have not had one anxiety attack in two weeks. I'm pretty pain free. And I sleep better.
Guys, I haven't taken this thing off. And at this point, I don't think I ever will.
And no... I didn't receive any money for writing this review. I just honestly wanted to share this with all of you. I think it's so cool that this rubber bracelet has changed my life in so many great ways. The only thing that frustrates me about it is that you actually have to see and feel it to believe it because I can't describe the feeling in words. It just works.
