Do These Products Really Work, or Are They Scams?
Scam! Don't Buy it! It won't work! There is absolutely no evidence that these products
work! Do not be fooled by advertisers who are trying to get your money!
Why do people buy things like HeadOn and
iRenew? Because of the advertising! Repeat something often enough and
some people will believe it. Use terms that sound scientific, and some people
will believe this appeal to authority. Provide testimonials from satisfied customers
and some people will believe that they can be the next happy owner of whatever you
Head On is a Homeopathic remedy and there is no way that it could possibly have any
ability to relieve the symptoms of a headache, other than via the Placebo effect.
In Homeopathy, herbs and other items are added to water or other liquids, then the
solution is diluted again and again until there are very few molecules left of the
herb. The theory is that the greater the dilution, the more powerful the strength
of the remedy. Some Homeopathic remedies are so diluted that there is NO herb
or medicine in the solution anymore! Homeopaths claim that the water that held
the original herb or medicine has a "memory" of the item in the original solution;
what!?!?!? Water is water, nothing more, nothing less! No scientist has
ever produced any data that gives any credence to the idea of water having a memory.
The British Parliament published a report on Homeopathy on February 22, 2010 stating
that there is no evidence that Homeopathy works beyond the Placebo Effect. Read
Same with iRenew which is often advertised on Fox News. Do they advertise there
because that audience has a large share of Fundamentalists who believe happy stories
for which there is no scientific proof? I don't know! But is it just a
coincidence that iRenew, who has to be frugal with their advertising budget just like
any other company, chooses to market to an audience with a higher percentage of viewers
who believe the Earth is 6000 years old than other media outlets? Yes, I am
just saying this to be controversial. Yes I am stating a hypothesis while offering
absolutely zero evidence. Do you tend to agree with my supposition anyway?

What is iRenew? It is a bracelet with embedded frequencies which will make you
feel better and more balanced. Don't you know that the body has an energy field
and it will have a better energy field if it is near a bracelet with embedded frequencies?
How exactly do you embed a frequency in something, anyway? A frequency is the
number of oscillations something makes in a given unit of time. You can't embed
one in anything; its not a thing that could even be embedded. It is a property of
something that is vibrating or repeating a pattern over and over.
This product is just the same as the Power Balance Bracelets which sell for about
$60 in Australia. The product has to be between 1 and 3 inches from your body's
energy field? The body has NO energy field! And if you wear it, it is
less than 1 inch from your body, yes?
But why not try iRenew? It comes with a 30 day Money Back Guarantee! Oh
yeah, less "P&H". It's "only" $20 plus that non-refundable $8 P&H.
How much do you think they make it for? Probably less than a buck! Even
if you send it back, they still make a profit! They get to earn interest on
your 28 dollars for over a month, then they get to keep $8 for Postage and Handling;
$10 if you're in Canada. How much was postage anyway, a few bucks? They
probably would still make money even if everyone buys one and sends it back!
iRenew uses the old chiropractor con where they try to put you off balance. These
are Applied Kinesiology Body
Tricks (must-see video)
Using simple laws of physics, a person trying to convince you of the benefit from
their product can manipulate the way they conduct these subjective experiments.
You have to watch the video!
These products sometimes "work" because people believe it will work and have the personal
experience of seeing it work on others on the commercial. Why should you trust
the people in the commercial? Do you know them? Do you know that they
are telling the truth? Could they merely be saying what they are being paid
to say? Do you know that there are actors who specialize in providing testimonials
for infomercials? Could this
person be one? No matter what the product, if enough people try it, there
are bound to be some people who think they are getting a benefit from it. Of
course their improvement may just be due to chance; everyone has days when they feel
better than other days. If I put a piece of lunch meat in my shoe one morning
and happened to feel more in balance that day, is my subjective feeling of improvement
due to treading on turkey all day? If a Native American Indian does a rain dance
and then it pours, did they 'cause' the shower or is it mere coincidence. "Correlation
does not imply causation" - just because one thing happens before another,
or at the same time, does not mean it is the cause of it! Smart Greeks know
that "cum hoc ergo propter hoc" and "post hoc ergo propter hoc" are logical
If you tend to be gullible, then products like these may work due to the Placebo effect.
The placebo effect occurs when you really believe that there will be a benefit from
some item or action. It happens when you believe that a doctor is giving you
a medicine or treatment that will make you better, or will at least make you feel
better. If you look back at your life and realize that you are easily fooled,
or often put a lot of faith in the statements of authority figures without understanding
the subject that they are speaking of, then you may be able to derive a placebo effect
from a homeopathic product or one of these balance promoting bracelets with frequencies
embedded in them. If you are gullible, don't feel bad. There is nothing
you can do, scientists
have found a gene for gullibility and you may have it. On the other hand,
you might be able to reduce your gullibility by learning some science, logic and critical
thinking skills. But then your life would be worse off because you would not
be able to benefit from these simple and relatively inexpensive remedies. Sometimes
it is better not to know the difference between reality and fantasy. Remember,
ignorance is bliss!
