iRenew Bracelet Scam

by admin on September 28, 2010

I normally do not write on physical product and spend most of my time researching Internet products but I am going to be letting everything come into focus now because enough is enough.

Do you know what a biofield is much less what your biofield is? Apparently they do and with these natural frequencies they can adjust your biofield to restore your natural balance and harmony around you.

Give me a break, they are saying they have new laws of physics and that with some natural frequencies they can change your “biofield” but yet they do not put forth any real studies, no real evidence. I agree it may be a placebo and have some psychiatric effect on a person because the mind is so powerful.

Enough pseudoscience as we have had enough of that, show the real results, I do not want any type of testimonials because I can fake those and so can anyone else. Show the clinical studies, scientific journals, what about the peer reviews? These are things that are normally done in science.

However lets remember just where you saw this great infomercial, that’s right it was an infomercial and we do not believe in what we see on TV we have to verify right?

Dear Matt,
I understand that you are mad about all these con-men making a lot of money ripping people off. But if you want to write about it, I suggest you learn to write better. Don’t use poor English and have run-on sentences. My writing is not the best either, but I don’t broadcast that fact.

Regards

Matt,
I saw a MLM version at a local flee market called C-Prime. I went up and did the balance test. They had 10plus 8×11 signs that said Diabetes, Cancer, Balance, Wellness, Pain etc. Just the one word on each sign to get people attention. Then they would do a balance test and people would buy for $60 each. It is a leather band and a small metal plate on the inside of the band (made in China)
As a Mechanical Engineer understand free body forces, it was easy to see what they did make you off balance. The most common one was… you stand with one foot up and they put pressure down on your left arm (but also a little pull to your left). The pull to your left is what makes you off balance. Then put on the bracelet on and do it again, but this time no pull to your left. So you can easily keep your balance.
I asked them how it works and they said it was different than those “scam magnetic and crystal bracelets”. It has a small piece of metal that has the proper frequency your body should have to get your body in the proper frequency. They also said something about the earth and water frequency. I ask them what instrument they use to measure the frequency and they did not know. I got their contact information and ask them and the company “How they measure the frequency?” and I have never gotten and answer. I have taken a few courses in mechanical frequencies and control theory. I don’t remember anything about the earth and water frequencies. And the leather would dampen and change the frequency of the metal to almost zero.

I did one of those balance tests in the workplace years ago and no bracelet or special apparatus was needed to get a good outcome after first having an unsuccessful outcome with a loss of balance. This product is a scam and is craptastic.

@Charlie,

For gawd’s sake. Other than your anal-retentive critique of Matt’s writing skills, what insight did you offer with regard to the product?

Answer: ZERO.

I really don’t know why these scams are allowed to be on tv- There should be some sort of protection for the public..Most of us know it’s a scam but they are ripping off the old and sick that will try anything..The telivision network should be fined and their license pulled–and slammed with e-mail from the public..

All I have to say is if people purchase the braclet for $20 and they notice a difference even though it is a “scam” then why the big fuss. $20 for piece of mind to some people is worth it. There are a lot of Scam’s on TV we all know it so I don’t understand why you are all making such a big deal about it.

My girlfriend just placed an order over the phone. In 4 to 6 weeks I’ll be back and let you know what happens, if anything. I have noticed a few pro football players wearing them.

I ordered the 2 for 1 over 2 weeks ago and have not recieved them, even tho they were shipped on the 19th of February. Hope I didn’t just get ripped off.

You guys are all fucking stupid everything they sell on tv is a joke!!!!

randy June 6, 2011 at 12:41 pm

so you mean to tell me all ads on tv is a joke too. It may not be a 30 minute infomercial but it is still selling you something in the alloted 1/2 minute time they have your attention.

How do you find out about anything that works??

Nancy Anderson July 30, 2011 at 10:29 am

This is a TOTAL waste of $20… Don’t fall for the hype! The bracelet is this cheap plastic crap and the IRenew label (which is supposed to be the part that makes it work) is nothing but cheap nickel stuff. It probably cost the company 2 cents to make the bracelet and they sell it for $20 plus shipping & handling. Save your money and do some aerobics exercise instead – will help your balance in the end.

I don’t know about you but I have felt a benefit from this braclet. Not total energy rebuild but definetly balance. I work in the re-roofing business and team rope as a hobby. I have noticed a better sense of balance standing on a steep roof and better balance in the saddle. There is also an almost electric type of feel after I have worn it for a few hours and I need to take it off. Maybe it is me but I do not think this is hype. Had a friend (a very succsessful person in other industries) that was involved in a multi-level marketing company and he that swore by these bio-magmentic products. I tested his products and by God the claims are true. Medical research has shown the benefits of magnetic applications. People have been wearing copper bracelets for years to combat arthritis and other joint problems. This may not work for everyone but it has helped me.
