I have been posting deals for the Titanium Tornado necklaces for a few months now so I thought it was time to find out more about the science behind it. For years I have seen these necklaces worn by a lot of professional baseball players so I never doubted that it was safe. But how does it work and is it effective?
When I started reading more about it, I found out that a lot of the baseball players rely on these titanium or Phiten necklaces. Some are wearing it because of their own superstitions but others wear it to promote good health.
Phiten has been around since 1983. It was started by a self-taught alternative-medicine guru. Yoshihiro Hirata believes the necklace “regulates the body’s energy flow by stabilizing ions.” It’s also said to ease neck and shoulder pain, increase blood circulation and relax your muscles. So it’s easy to see how athletes like Josh Hamilton, CJ Wilson, Sergio Garcia and Jennie Finch wear them.
But do they really work? Or is this another example of hype over science? According to an article I read on Yahoo Voices, titanium is a metal that conducts electricity well. And mixing titanium with your natural bioelectric current could help stabilize your current. But is there science to back that up. Not according to the Food and Drug Administration. They do not recognize this as therapeutic. So is it safe? Titanium is a non-allergic metal so you should not have any problems with it.
Sometimes it’s not about science but how it makes you feel. And if wearing a titanium necklace makes you feel like you are doing something good for your body, then it won’t hurt! And you will be cool wearing one!
