i bought one of those bands. and it works for me. my backache is a thing of the past.and my gym workout has improved drastically.
its funny how some people say some thing is crap. if they never tried it. or can prove its crap.u might say its all in Ur head.
maybe. but if i am thinking this band is healing me and that tricks my mind in healing me. so be it. then it is still doing its job
they say its a proven fact if you give some one a sweet that looks like a pill in a expensive pill holder. and tell them its extremely expensive
and good pills. they will use it and there headache will disappear.

Placebos should be dirt cheap. The Power-you-can't-push-me-down-Bands aren't.

That's why the FSM gave us double blind tests. Yay! Check out

Power & Balance test put the the "REAL DOUBLE BLIND TEST"

But I'm guessing you're gonna come back with "Well I dunno about that..." because you know, who believes proof anyway...

The "placebos work, so what's so bad about them" argument is tired and full of flaws.

Out of the top of my head:

They cost (sometimes a lot of) moneyThey turn people away from evidence based treatmentThey misinform and promote misinformationThe effect is unreliable
Unfortunately "The world wants to be deceived."

I saw a video about this bracelet a while ago, about the angles and the placement of the feet, (before and after) that explains quite well whats happening. I can't find it now but a friend of mine was carrying on about this last night. I would like to send her this video. Anybody knows what I am talking about and where to find it? The one above here still leave room for interpretation.
