Frequently Asked Questions
When should I wear the Original Copper Heeler Insoles?
All the time, whether you are sitting, standing, exercising or walking. The Original Copper Heeler is meant to be worn no matter what footwear you have on.
When will I get relief?
Everyone is different but customers and medical professionals have told us that many people feel better within a few days while others take a couple of weeks for full effect. The key is to wear them every day.
My arthritis isn’t too bad so why do I need a pair?
The United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a report in 2013 that claims over 50 million Americans have either osteo or rheumatoid arthritis and that number is expected to grow to 67 million by 2030.
Arthritis limits mobility and is a gateway to other life-threatening diseases including heart disease and high blood pressure and the leading
cause of worker disability.
How does it work?
Copper has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain. The ancient Romans and Egyptians, among others, knew that copper was an essential element and that through absorption the body is able to fight pain and win.
But my arthritis isn’t in my foot. Does that matter?
The simple answer is no. The foot has about 250,000 sweat glands and the receptors spread throughout the body. So the healing properties of the Original Copper Heeler Insoles work wherever you have pain. Customers say that hip, elbow, neck, knee, arms and hands wracked with arthritic pain find relief.
I have sensitive feet. Will the insole bother my feet?
The only reason you’ll know you have them on is the pain you previously suffered is either lessened or gone. We use pure, jewelry-grade copper that comes in a variety of sizes. It is molded and curved to fit inside footwear. Many people tell us that the insoles make their feet warmer in cold weather and work just as well in the warmth of summer.
I have had surgery for joint pain and still take painkillers.
Can the Original Copper Heeler insole still help me?
Medical professionals and their patients tell us that with many people using the product works better than traditional modern methods of pain management. At the same time, the Original Copper Heeler does not heal arthritis, joint disease and is not intended as a cure.
What about copper bracelets?
Copper bracelets have been used for many years with success. What makes our product different is that the bottom of the foot has 250,000 sweat glands and the body absorbs copper better through the feet than anywhere else in the human body.
Are there any side effects to wearing the Original Copper Heeler Insoles?
Some people notice a slight green color on the bottom of the feet but that’s just the body’s way of telling you the copper is being slowly absorbed through perspiration.
What about socks and stockings?
Wear them! Copper and all its healing properties will be absorbed through any porous material.
Should I buy more than one pair?
You can move the copper insole from one pair of removable insoles and use them in different types of footwear. Though many customers do buy multiple pairs and leave them in because maximum comfort is realized when the Original Copper Heeler beds down and stayed fixed in the shoe.
Can I use them in all sorts of footwear?
Absolutely. Whether you are going out on the town in your best shoes, puttering around the garden or lounging in a pair of comfy slippers you can wear the product. Please note the copper heeler is not guaranteed if worn in soft bedded footwear as the movement may cause them to crack.
What if I don’t love the product?
Since introducing the heeler Insoles we have offered a money-back guarantee on every pair. So rest assured if you don’t love them we will accept them back and refund your cost.
