    Hi guys, has anyone ever heard of Copper Heeler insoles? My dad has caught a glimpse some early morning TV infomercial selling these things and is convinced he needs them! :rolleyes: if so what are your views in them?

    Many thanks, Tommy :D

    Surely the facts that they were advertised on late night TV and all the evidence for them on their website is testimonials is a big enough red flag.

    Look at this crap:

    What baffles me however is why they are being endorsed by Doctors from the University if London.

    Why not strip a bit of insulation off some copper wire and bung that in the boots? Then you don't have to pay for it.

    Very high in copper is your liver, as are oysters, cocoa and chocolate... viz. there are easier ways to get copper into your body. Personally, I like to swallow about 27 pence in one and two pence denominations on a weekly basis, but then that's how we roll with it in the Black Country- alriiiiigggghhhhhht, Noddy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8NOH7vlcKg

    Its absolute bull**** that copper has healing properties. Every single study has shown that it doesn't.

    If someone gets better using this product or any copper product --> placebo.
