Bedridden arthritis sufferer who was facing a double knee replacement is now 'pain free' thanks to £30 copper insoles
Daily Mail, March 12th 2013
- Keith Young, 69, was bedridden by painful arthritis in both of his knees
- He had to give up golf and country walks with his wife, Elsa Young
- Feared he would need a knee replacement but tried insoles as a last resort
- Within a week his mobility had increased and he is now 'pain free'
A father-of-three who suffered such painful arthritis he feared he would need a double knee replacement says he has been cured by a pair of insoles.
Keith Young, 69, was bedridden when he was hit by crippling arthritis in both knees three years ago. Mr Young, who was a keen scuba diver, golfer and fisherman, was in so much pain he considered ordering a Zimmer frame or undergoing knee replacement surgery.
However, in a final attempt to avoid these desperate measures he tried inserting copper insoles into his shoes. Within five weeks, the retired print firm boss noticed the pain was beginning to ease and now he is back on the golf course.
Mr Young, of Valentia Island, County Kerry, Ireland, said: ‘I had arthritis in both knees. It was getting worse and worse. ‘I'm overweight and 69-years-old and I was dreading the thought of needing two replacement knees. ‘It got so bad I ended up walking with a walking stick and was considering a Zimmer frame.
This lasted for two or three months. ‘The pain and the swelling were unbelievable. I took so many painkillers and paracetamol. I was at my wits’ end. I used to stay in bed two days a week and then I ended up bed ridden. ‘I was extremely depressed and putting on more weight due to the fact I was unable to exercise. ‘I am an active sort of bloke, always have been. I used to walk regularly, play golf and scuba dive.’
The father-of-three believed he was being plagued by old football injuries when he began to feel pain and discomfort in his knees late in 2010. He visited the doctor who told him to see how things went for a while and 'come back if his condition worsened'. Within weeks the arthritis began to impact on his ability to enjoy his active lifestyle.
Between early 2011 and mid 2012 Keith was forced to give up golf. He also found it impossible to enjoy his regular walks in the countryside with wife Elsa, 67. Defying his wife's wishes, Keith refused to go back to the doctor amid fears he would need a knee replacement.
Mrs Young scoured the web and stumbled upon a website selling copper insoles. She bought him a pair and he inserted them in his shoes, before spending the day sitting down watching television. Within a week, he was more mobile, and was soon fit enough to join his wife on an occasional walk to the shops. Five weeks later he started to accompany Mrs Young on walks in the country with the help of a walking stick.
Now, he is nearly back to full fitness and is looking forward to getting his golf handicap down in April when the spring weather arrives. He is now also able to walk briskly without pain. He said: ‘My pain has gone. I am no longer depressed and have cut right back on the pain killers. ‘After being bed ridden for six weeks because of the pain I was very depressed. ‘I felt like I didn't have much to live for but now I can honestly say the Copper Heelers have been a life saver.’
The apparent healing powers of copper were first pioneered by the ancient Greeks who used copper bracelets to ease aches and pains (the insoles claim to contain 14 times more copper than bracelets). Copper Heelers are said to contain 14 times more copper than the bracelet. Copper is an essential mineral in the body and is thought to keep blood vessels, the immune system and bones healthy. The Arthritis Foundation reports there is no scientific research to prove the effectiveness from copper bracelets. However it also says there is scant research to prove there are no benefits.
The mother with crippling arthritis who's now running a half marathon - all thanks to a pair of copper insoles
Daily Mail, November 9th 2012
- Helen Basson, 39, feared she would end up in a wheelchair after being diagnosed with arthritis in every joint of her body
- But three months after inserting the copper insoles she astounded doctors by beginning to walk freely
- Mother-of-three now planning to run a half marathon
A mother-of-three is training for a half marathon after beating excruciating arthritis - thanks to a pair of £30 copper insoles.
Garden designer Helen Basson, 39, feared she would end up in a wheelchair after she was diagnosed with arthritis in every joint of her body after the birth of her third child.
Her condition was so bad she was unable to lift her baby out of his cot or get into the bath unaided. But within three months of inserting the copper insoles, recommended to her by her mother-in-law, Mrs Basson astounded her doctors by beginning to walk freely. She is now planning to take part in a half marathon in February.
She said: 'I couldn't do anything. I had to be helped off the toilet and getting in and out of the bath was extremely difficult. 'It was terrifying - I was a young woman and I feared I would end up in a wheelchair.
The low point was a check-up at the hospital when they inserted a fluid into me and discovered I had arthritis in every joint. There was a time when I thought I wouldn't be able to walk again, so running a half marathon will be incredible.'

Copper is an essential mineral in the body and is thought to keep blood vessels, the immune system and bones healthy. The Arthritis Foundation reports there is no scientific research to prove the effectiveness from copper bracelets. However it also says there is scant research to prove there are no benefits.
Mrs Basson first noticed something was wrong after her son Theo was born in May 2004 and she was unable to straighten her left arm. It wasn't long before the discomfort spread to her knees, wrists, hips, elbows and ankles. She went downhill so quickly she was unable to walk more than 100 metres.
Mrs Basson, who lived in Devon before her children were born but now lives in France, was shocked when a rheumatologist at her local hospital in Nice told her the arthritis was in every joint of her body.
The agonising condition left her in too much pain to vacuum, iron or clean the house - meaning her husband James had to do everything.
Then late in 2007 her mother-in-law recommended the 'copper heelers' which had eased the pain for her some months earlier.
Within three months of inserting them into her sandals Mrs Basson, who refused drugs prescribed by doctors, began to notice a difference.
Setting herself small goals she started to walk more, building the distance up gradually. When the condition eased she started training for the Rock 'n' Roll Nice, a half marathon around the streets of the city in southern France.
She said: 'As well as inserting the copper heelers I changed my diet and stopped having dairy, alcohol, caffeine and gluten.
Now I am able to do everything I want to do. I have even started sailing again. 'The doctors are amazed. They cannot believe I have managed to control the arthritis without any drugs. 'I still get a few aches and pains, but I have learned to manage the condition now.'
Tony Andrews, of The Original Copper Heeler, the company which invented the copper insoles, said: 'I was passionate in finding a completely natural, drug free solution to stop the torturing pain of this 'quality-of-life' destroying disease. People from all walks of life are wearing the copper heelers.'
