: My brother's girlfriend sufferes from arthritus legs and hands. Rather than getting her basic bath accessories I wanted to give her something she would really appreciate. Does anyone have gift suggestions for arthritus sufferers?
Yes, Neodymium Magnets- that would do her alot of good. I use them and know the neodymium, rare earth magnets help soooo much.
I use 10,000 or 11,000 gauss usually. They come in small gold plated dots that I've glued inside some of my rings. With in 3 days they will take away swelling, stiffness and pain. Large ones are so strong they can snap together and pinch your fingers. Even mess up credit cards, monitors and people with pace makers and such should not wear them. They come in various sizes up to 1-1/2"x1/2 and can be held on with velcro wraps or tape from WalMart's health department.
I found a site on here tonight that is really inexpensive. If you would like to purchase magnets for her pain and want more info then please email me.
