Default Pensioner discovers 'miracle cure' for arthritis

Pensioner discovers 'miracle cure' for arthritis after glueing 2p coins to the inside of his shoes

Johnny Franks, 85, read that copper could help him bend his knees so stuck some in his trainers
He said he couldn't bend his knees but a month after wearing the shoes he is 'cured'
Experts are split on whether his new soles are actually working

The medical world has long debated whether copper can help ease the pain of arthritis.

While some sufferers swear by a bracelet, others use expensive insoles.

Johnny Franks, however, reckons he’s found the cheapest aid of all – 2p pieces glued to the inside of his shoes.

Another reason to get rid of coins and notes and go digital?

Great story

2p's are cheap so I'd be surprised if they got rid of them unless it was to replace them with something cheaper...but then they'd be making £1 coins from copper wouldn't they!

There is I believe a pharmaceutical treatment for arthritis using real gold. Copper isn't the only metal believed to help....

There is very little copper in a 1p or 2p. Stick a magnet on one, they are mostly steel. Copper content has reduced over the years and was reduced further sometime last decade when it was realised that people were melting them down. Briefly, as copper prices increased, there was a time when you could get more than 2p of copper from a 2p coin.

Bit more expensive but, hey, if you've got it use it! I wonder if it'll cure other illnesses?

Not necessarily more expensive.. after all, foil blocking on the packaging for fancy high value items e.g. aftershaves/perfumes, sometimes use real gold leaf. You can buy cables and electrical equipment with lots of gold plated connections..

Every human being has some gold in their bodies from a fairly early age.

Some cultures consume gold e.g. in India I believe they will consume gold leaf.

Didn't know that one! It's true, too, about the expensive packaging and it's so wasteful! I really do hate waste!

A friends dad was a carpet fitter. He is now retired. His knees were hammered from his job. He swore by the copper bracelets you wear on your wrist. He has run the London marathon and the New York marathon.

So there must be something in this theory.

I know people who've had gold injections for arthritis.

Apparently you need the very old 2 pences pre 1992. When I used to work as a barman, there were a group of regular heavy drinkers all around 60 years of age, each night they would have 4 or 5 pints to get get warmed up, then start on the double vodka's, at least 4 double vodka's each. Each night before they left they used to ask me for very old 2 pences pre 1992 and stick a couple in their mouth, then proceed to jump in their cars and drive home.

According to these guys the 2 pence copper coin in mouth does work to beat the breathalyser as long as it's the pre 1992 one which is mainly copper, supposedly the breathalyser machine comes back with an error code. I know this group of drinkers are still drinking in the same pub as of today and still driving home.

I saw a test of mythbusters before regarding the copper coin in mouth to beat the breath test, only problem being they used a brand new coin which I'm pretty sure wasn't even made from copper, hence the myth was busted.

I'm not saying whether it does work or not, just letting you know how these old guys do it.

Slightly off topic.

There are thousands here in N.I. who swear that spraying WD40 on their arthritic hands knees etc. has helped a great deal in stopping the pain. I have used it on my knees and the effect lasted for months!

I'm not recommending this, just stating what I heard.

from the comments section on the The Mail site:

Quote:
This will work through an action called plasamatic osmosis. This means that the acidic salty moisture from sweat glands in the feet will slightly erode the coin releasing the copper molecules which are then absorbed. Copper molecules are found in natural sources and are essential for healthy bones and connective tissue. Copper sulphate is used in agriculture CuSO4.5H2O to improve the land. Nearly all food contains some copper so the coins in shoes idea is not so stupid.

Madness to use a toxic chemical like WD40 on skin -World War Dolores 40!

As for copper isn't there high levels in Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia...

We are all short of Minerals many of them and vitamins and doing just one thing aint gonna cure,you got to get rid of the toxins the free radicals..Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber a few times would do better!

I heard that if you put a handful of raisins in an open dish, just cover them with a little gin and wait until all the gin has been absorbed, then eat the raisins. It's supposed to be very good but as I don't like gin I have never tried it.

Those coins are pretty new, and I am almost certain that they've removed most of, if not all, the copper from 2p coins.

Copper is required for collagen formation. If a copper deficiency is the reason you cant produce collagen and have arthritis, then obviously it will cure your arthritis if taken or put on your skin.

This explains why it only works for some people, as there are many reasons you can get arthritis, copper deficiency being only ONE of them.

Dear Mr Watson

I am writing in reply to your Freedom of Information request of 7 March.

Copper-plated steel 2p coins have a composition of 93% (??3%) mild steel and 7% (??3%) copper.

Yours sincerely

Hasn't worked for me, but neither did the fish oils, magnets and the creams, gels and oils that you can rub on. There is a dog and horse liniment that has a menthol base which gives temporary relief but we are all different.

If this man has found relief then I celebrate his good fortune. I find that avoiding the nightshade veges and flouride wherever possible is very important.
