Titanium Products For Health?…


Somehow I cannot help but think of the six million dollar man tv series I grew up watching when I think of the word or rather the metal titanium. Anyhow what sparked my interest was when I came across a Phiten Store in Marina Square. In fact I had passed it by a few times in the past and even looked in once, however I was skeptical that the products even worked. I mean how many copper bracelets or magnetic bracelets shops claimed more or less the same benefits of circulation and pain relieve just by using their products. But what got my attention this time, was that they their products were now being sold in Changi Hospital!

So far I experienced two very interesting demonstrations at their store to show that their products actually work. During the first demonstration I actually felt the slight change in the tension of the muscles. However in the second demonstration which was different then the first, I couldn’t quite tell if it was working the way it should as it involved lifting two big and filled bottles of water by the handle. ( think it has to do with the fact that I am used to lifting heavy weights)

Anyhow I decided to give their necklace a try since it looked rather cool and sportive. I have noticed that I am much calmer then I otherwise would be after wearing it for more than 24hours. Also waking up from the bed seems more effortless than before, perhaps due to the increase in circulation. You might say that it is all psychological, but hey! You can always try the products out yourself to see if they work.

Their products were originally designed for use as a medical aid, helping to improve the flow of blood in coma patients and others suffering from immobility. The research and development has spanned over twenty years, and until recently, only the wealthy could afford them. Finally, however, the price has come down and now their products have become a standard and are a great alternative for those who do not like constantly taking pills for relieving body aches and pains.

I got this interesting article off another site not related in anyway to Phiten…..

An Explanation of Titanium

Titanium (atomic number: 22; element symbol: Ti )

Titanium was discovered by a German chemist in 1791 and named 1795 for the Greek mythical characters known as Titans. They were giants who pre-dated and gave birth to the Greek gods. Titanium is a sliver-white colored metal which is resistant to rust, heat, and seawater, and are hypoallergenic It is often used for medical tools and technical tools in various fields. The living body conducts electric currents throughout itself, related to the nervous and muscular systems. Disturbances in the body’s electric current can generate various maladies. In our everyday lives, we are constantly exposed to various electromagnetic waves, which can harm the body. Titanium, with its strong ionization tendency, promotes better electrical through the body and helps counteract the negative electromagnetic waves in our environment. The results include improved metabolism and the reduction of muscle stiffness and pain. Athletes and medical specialists both have begun recommending the curative properties titanium recently.

The special characteristics of Titanium

Titanium possesses such extraordinary qualities such as the following:

1. it is lightweight

2. it is sturdy

3. it will not rust

4. it does not produce allergic reactions in the human body

Because of these highly –regarded characteristics, Titanium is now used in everything from everyday products such as eyeglass frames, golf clubs, watches, cameras, to such highly advanced products as medical equipment, as well as parts used in the space aeronautics industry.

Titanium has recently begun to garner further interest as sports professionals and athletes, from high school soccer players to runners in the international marathon, in baseball league to golf PGA, have been wearing titanium necklaces, titanium bracelets and titanium coated-tape around their necks, wrists and arms. Many who wear these titanium bio jewelleries have reported that there is a miraculous beneficial effect of improving blood circulation and reducing muscles stress. This has cause an increasing trend of wearing titanium bio jewelleries in sports. In fact, it is an essential accessory for many professional players of major league sports clubs and sports associations now. Titanium has been proven to be so popular in sports that television shows have been broadcast special features stories around this new phenomenon. The New York Times has also reported this new phenomenon under the heading “Is Your Bat Speed a Bit Off? Try a Titanium Necklace “ in June 22, 2005.

How Titanium affects the Body, and its Benefits.

Electricity is constantly flowing throughout the human body. Muscles respond sensitively to minute amounts of this electric current. Human cells are composed of atomic nuclei as well as electronic nuclei. Electronic nuclei emit positive and negative charges that delicate balance each other. In order words, it is probably not an overstatement to say that our bodies are controlled by electricity. However, if for some reasons the positive and negative charges in our cells are upset and the delicate balance them are disrupted, the electric currents in our bodies become uneven and unbalance. This results in such aches and illnesses as stiff shoulders, lower back pain, headaches, dizziness, ringing tone in the ears, diarrhea, constipation, and severe ocular pain.

According to Eastern Oriental medicine, every organ, whether it is the brain, heart, liver or kidney, maintains its own electromagnetic field. When the dedicate balance of these fields are upset the flow of “ki” or life energy, is disrupted, leading to illness.

Today, we live our everyday lives surrounded by all kinds of household electrical appliances. Whenever these appliances are operated using electricity, they invariably produce electromagnetic waves. These waves always disrupt our biological electrical currents and damage our physical health. However, a life without electrical appliances and equipment is now no longer feasible. Therefore, in order to live healthier lives, we must help balance and repair the disruptions to our biological electrical currents. To put it more simply, we need to bring in electricity from outside of our bodies-this idea is the crux of all medical treatments using electricity or magnetism.

Electrons or cluster of electrons that produce electrical charges are called ions. Many methods of medical treatment use the effects of ions, or ionization. For example, ultrasound and irradiation using low frequency waves are often employed in the treating of muscles pain, or in the rehabilitation of patients with partial paralysis. These treatments take advantage of the fact that when the body is exposed to electrical current of electrical waves, it becomes heated. The increased warmth encourages a more vigorous flow of blood throughout the body, simulating sympathetic nerves and causing the capillaries and vessels to expand. This in turn improves metabolism, and encourages cells to expel toxic wastes more easily. Furthermore, appropriate warmth helps to relieve pain and bring about relaxation. Other beneficial effects include the loosening of muscles, the alleviation of pain and spasms, and the increased alkalinity of such bodily fluids as blood and lymph node fluids.

The disruption of biological electrical currents can also be corrected by using metals. Metals by nature emit positive and negative (minus) charges, and it is the degree to which these charges are emitted that determines their ionization strength. Ionizing propensities differ from metal to metal, it has been generally recognized that aluminum possesses the strongest such effect, followed by zinc, iron, nickel, tin, lead, copper, mercury, white gold and gold. However, until recently, it has been discovered that Titanium is believed to have an even higher ionizing effect than any of these metals.

Titanium is thus extremely effective in correcting the disruptions in a person’s biological electrical currents, thereby eliminating any unpleasant and painful symptoms. The excellent results derives from wearing a titanium bracelets are due to the fact that titanium emits electrical currents that are beneficial in correcting and balancing a person’s disrupted biological electrical currents.

  7. Is their any way titanium can leave a metallic taste in the mouth? and if so, why does that happen?

    • Not that I know or have heard of. Metallic taste in the mouth usually occurs from other causes…..

      Metallic Taste in Mouth, scientifically known as ‘Dysgeusia’, is a condition in which the taste of your mouth changes to something very sour and foul. You might feel as if you have something metallic inside your mouth, even when you are not eating anything. The one and only symptom of metallic taste is the continuous presence of a bitter and acidic taste in the mouth. Though the problem is not too dangerous, the result is that you do not feel like eating anything and your health goes down. In this article, we have provided a list of all the probable reasons that might leads to metallic taste in your mouth, along with the possible remedies.

      Causes Of Metallic Taste
      In the following lines, we have mentioned the main causes of metallic taste in mouth, along with the exact type of taste the causes lead to.
      Copper Toxicity (Metallic Taste)
      Dental Caries (Foul Taste)
      Dental Conditions (Bad Taste)
      Fluctuation in Estrogen Levels (Metallic Taste)
      Gastritis (Foul Taste)
      Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease (Bitter Taste)
      Heartburn (Acid Taste)
      Jaundice (Bitter Taste)
      Lead Poisoning (Metallic Taste)
      Medications like Antibiotics, Prenatal Vitamins and Antidepressants (Metallic Taste)
      Mercury Poisoning (Metallic Taste)
      Oral Infections like Gingivitis or Periodontitis (Metallic Taste)
      Poor Oral Hygiene (Metallic Taste)
      Postnasal Drip (Foul Taste)
      Pyrosis (Acid Taste)
      Scombrotoxic Fish Poisoning (Metallic Taste)
      Selenium Overuse (Metallic Taste)
      Tooth abscess (Foul Taste)

      What To Do
      Though we don’t get to hear much about Dysgeusia or ‘Metallic Taste in Mouth’, the problem is fairly common. After knowing the causes of the problem, let us try to explore what can be done to remedy it.
      You can fight against the metallic taste by having citrus juices, lemonade and foods marinated in vinegar. They not only break through the taste, but also help in saliva production that facilitates washing away of the metallic taste.
      Every time you brush your teeth, make sure to brush your tongue also. It will help in lessening the metallic taste.
      You can also try rinsing your mouth with a solution made of a teaspoon of salt and eight ounces of water.
      Another option is to make a solution of 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and eight ounces of water and rinse your mouth with it.
      Eat raw condiments like cloves and cinnamon in very small portions. This will bring temporary relief from metallic taste.

      Dental Hygiene
      Maintaining a strict dental hygiene is very important to get rid of the metallic taste in your mouth. Brush your teeth twice a day, to stay away from cavities and keep your teeth clean. Formation of plaque in your mouth may be contributing to the intensity of the metallic taste. Sprinkle some baking soda, mixed with salt, on your toothbrush and clean your teeth with this solution, at least once a day. This will not only break the plaque layer, but will also help you fight other dental infections. The acid presence in the mouth is neutralized by baking soda, which leaves a cleaner taste in your mouth.

    • My husband and I have titanium wedding bands (we were married in the summer of 2009). A few months ago, my husband started to complain about a metallic taste in his mouth and we figured that it must be the ring. He stopped wearing it and the taste went away (after about 5 days). I noticed last week that I had a metallic taste in my mouth. I stopped wearing my ring and the taste has gone away. We’re thinking that perhaps it’s not pure titanium (we purchased the rings online from a vendor in the US). We’re shopping for new bands now.

      • I would have the same suspicions too….by the way Phiten’s titanium products go through some sort of phild process perhaps that is why their products don’t leave metallic tastes in one’s mouth?? Anyhow here’s wishing you and your husband happiness and a blessed marriage! :)

  8. I am wearing a titanium necklace for 2 days now and i do sleep better and wake with less ache on my shoulders. The salesgirl advice not wear more than 10 cm away from affected area which i did.

    I have had this shoulder ache since a few years now and was surprised to find it less painful after only 1 hour of 200 doze of the titanium healthy necklace which i borrowed from a friend over dinner. After which, i immediately made my purchase over at Taka Sport section counter. Good to try for your self if you dun think it will work for you.

  9. how about if i am wearing a titanium watch… does it have the same effect as the necklace?

    • The difference is the patented phild process for Phiten, hence I cannot say whether it would work the same way.

      cheeres

  10. I have titanium inside me from a spinal fusion. Ofcourse there are major downsides to being cut open, but in the long run, will titanium help me in an energetic sense?

    • Sorry dear, only professional doctors can answer that question. Hope all is well with you…cheers

    • Im suppose to have titanium screws put in my hip to hold my hip and pelvic together. I have a fluid leak that was caused from back surgery in 2000. I can have an open surgery like u or this. I am having sciatic nerve issues. S1 L5. Scary….

      • God be with you….praying you have a speedy recovery..

  11. Bought a phiten titanium necklace and lotion last week and yesterday did my usual leg workout and felt the burn and knew for sure I would be up with leg cramps through the night but for the very first time I was able to sleep through to morning without monsterous leg cramps unlike the way I always did after a leg workout. Let alone this time I was able to do deeper squats and lunges wearing the necklas this time and did not feel the drain of exhaustion that I usually felt.

    • Great news! Thanks for sharing…

  12. I read that there is a degree level of titanium from 1 to IV.my friend gave me an cut of ring size comes from titanium tubing of 1 inch diameter.Is there any beneficial to used it?

    • I honestly don’t know, the products I mentioned in this blogpost usually undergoes the phild process. However if any part of the pure titanium tubing touches your skin, I’m sure if will help afterall it all began with titanium being used to help with the circulation for bedridden patients who could not move.

  13. sir,m going to implant my teeth so i have to use titanium screw inside my root .is there any chance of bad effect on my body?

    • You’ll need to check with a certified doctor sir, but I doubt there is any negative effects otherwise they will invite expensive lawsuits.

  14. I started to use it caused I felt without energy, not depressed but steady without energy, I was not at any kind of stress or problem, working at home and having more time for hobbies, eat healthy and with daily exercise. So I decided to give it a try, I knew Phiten products cause they were clients some years ago but have not reason o buy it then.
    The same day i bought it I had a better sleep, less effort to stand out from bed and feeling normal. I believe that this kind of products also have the psychological side, so a good thinking about its effects may contribute to a wellness. I been using Homeopathy since 2009 and feel / prove its benefits, so I believe in helping your body in the more natural ways you can heal itself, the better.

    I strongly recommend to give it a try to a Phiten necklace, the Asian medicine has millenniums of natural research. If its logical that acupuncture works repairing your body energy and stops/promotes electrical flow, so do titanium close to your body for long periods of time.

  15. I totally disagree with all this!! I have an actual titanium plate with 4 titanium screws in my neck and it has done nothing at all to improve the flow of energy in my body. It has not made me feel better or be able to focus longer or any of the other claims of these products. In fact it has done the exact opposite to me.

    • Sorry to hear of your condition. Not trying to be smug or anything but is the titanium you have from Phiten too? All I’m saying is that their products go through a phild process. In any case if it doesn’t work for some it still makes a nice fashion accessory.

      Hope there comes a time where you won’t need them in You anymore

  16. I use phiten product for the last 12 months, Before i use phiten product i never had gastritis, but since i wear phiten product i had gastritis twice in 6 months, i don’t know yet if the titanium dangerous for stomach mucosa or not
