Frequency wristband, necklace and gadgets may just be a placebo effect
Also known as energy bracelets, wellness companies joined the frequency wristband and necklace bandwagon. Food supplements like Amino Boosters are bundled as ‘gifts’ when you buy specific packages.
They even offer a version suited for your pet, which they claim is the world’s first frequency pet tag. These energy bracelets or wristband claims it induces some ‘power balance.’
Some brands like AlphaSpin by JM Ocean Avenue have big health promises and are incredibly pricey but do they work?
What these frequency energy gadget claims
Sellers of these frequency accessories claim it can help alleviate insomnia. You get better sleep with it and feel healthier throughout the day.
Power Balance Silicone Wristband claims it can improve your immune system and get through the day with cosmic energy when you wear it.
AminoBoosters Wristband tells you you’ll be healthier just by wearing it.
AlphaSpin is ridiculously costly. It claims you will get the cosmic – zen-like power of the universe! It promises a healthier body, a happy mood and claims to attract the “good vibes” and intrinsic energy of the universe.
They say that powerful energy resonates everywhere, and these accessories are capable of harnessing and transferring this energy, be it scientific or spiritual, to your body.
Is it a placebo effect?
Well, a lot of people buy and swear by it, so it is difficult to debunk. However, a ‘placebo effect’ is likely the reason for these testimonies.
The nature of these energy bracelets comes from religious tradition. Therefore it is not based on new technology, but spiritual and philosophical ancient knowledge.
A Hindu tradition
Subtle energy systems have been harnessed using stones and metal objects in ancient times. In Hinduism, a chakra (Sanskrit chakra, “wheel”) is thought to be an energy point or node in the subtle body.
Chakras are believed to be part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such, are the meeting points of the subtle (non-physical) energy channels called Nadi.
Nadi is believed to be channeled in the subtle body through which the life force (prana) (non-physical) or vital energy (non-physical) moves.
Various scriptural texts and teachings present a different number of chakras. It’s believed that there are many chakras in the subtle human body, according to the tantric texts, but there are seven chakras that are considered to be the most important ones.
Well, if it doesn’t work, there’s no side effect.
A logical conclusion
There are no scientific studies that prove these energy gadgets work. A simple scientific google will give you a “hoax” and “scam” result for these types of objects.
If you want to increase your balance, get more strength and energy, go to the gym, and exercise. Eat healthily and take food supplements that work.
More importantly, instead of meditating on the cosmic energy to enter your body, pray to the creator of the cosmos.
