A few weeks ago I was approached by Philip Stein to talk about their Health Bracelets.  Reading on their website I learned Philip Stein claims their bracelets act as a sort of antenna that “channels the frequencies naturally found in the environment toward our bodies to promote overall well being.”

I can hear you rolling your eyes! I rolled my eyes too. I mean it sounds pretty new agey. Except that the online reviews have been surprisingly positive.  Philip Stein has sold thousands with almost no returns.

Dozens of people have written online reviews talk about how it helped calm them, made them feel more energetic and sleep more deeply.  The company kindly offered one to my friend, a LA based actor (if you saw you’d say ‘oh yeah…that guy) who was in town for MBFW, unfortunately he was swamped (as was I) and I never got the bracelet to him.  So I started wearing it.

A few reviewers described a tingling feeling in their fingers when they first put it on.  I felt that too. I DID notice one thing. When I ate things that were bad for me, candy, soda etc, I felt REALLY bad right away.  Queasy, indigestion, etc., and I found myself craving foods that were good for me.  Fruit vegetables, wanting water rather than juice.

But all in all my head felt clearer, my thoughts more succinct.

Are the Philip Stein Health bracelets supported by science? According to their webpage:

“We are working with research institutes around the world to scientifically demonstrate the ways in which our proprietary Natural Frequency Technology positively affects the human body. Preliminary studies have been very promising. Results from double blind studies at the Neurokinetics Institute in Canada and at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida suggest improved balance, ocular focus and a reduced feeling of lightheadedness when standing up abruptly – all wellbeing indicators.”

Of course I can’t help but notice there are no links to the studies or dates the studies took place.

However I can tell you I’ve read dozens of reviews who say they felt, better less stressed, and like me experience an odd “lighter” feeling as though I’d set some heavy down or taken off an heavy article of clothing.

If nothing else the bracelets are super stylish and durable. They are not cheap but they do come with a 30 return policy. But the company insists they have had very few returns and I can tell you from my experience I can see why.
