Known world-wide for his vast body of scientific work, NY Yankees hurler Randy Johnson had this to say.

“Liquid titanium is supposed to generate positive and negative ions in your body that will allow the blood to flow better, and increase circulation in those areas”.

Combine this product with the aforementioned life wave energy patch and baseball can have their super athletes without using banned substances such as human growth hormones and the like.

Who cares if some jock endorses it? The real test will be if Oprah likes it.

One more thing… Since titanium melts at 3034 deg. F, would it not be a little uncomfortable to wear?

Imagine what one of these things will do for those who’ve had their DNA “activated!” They’ll have to create a whole new sports league for the new super-human race!!!

Personally, I think this sounds even more far-fetched than LifeWave - if that’s possible.  I’d wonder if I really was getting a length of titanium (liquid or otherwise) wrapped in nylon, or just the nylon.  And $23 seems awfully cheap for something like this….

I was wondering… if it’s liquid titanium then how do they go about wrapping it in nylon?

Here are some more of Phiten’s Aqua Titanium products for all you people who are looking to do your Christmas shopping for your gullible friends before the big holiday rush: http://www.sunpowerusa.com/phiten.html

There’s also a Chinese website that goes into more depth on the production of the stuff:  http://www.phiten.com.hk/html_en/cpyl.php

Here’s what they say, for those of you who can’t open that page from work:

Phiten’s Phild Processing:
The act of “Phild Processing” titanium was originally developed by a Japanese chiropractor to treat muscle pain and stiffness. He soon found that his system was most effective when the body’s electric current was in distress, mainly due to stress and fatigue.
The unique “Phild Processing” process produces a carbonized titanium powder, which is used in Phiten products. By emitting a uniform wave, the powder helps to seriously control electrical disturbances in the body. The elimination of pain and discomfort is almost immediate and some people feel pain-free for the first time in their lives. Phild Processing has been found to be effective for the temporary relief of pain from bursitis, sciatica, tendonitis, headaches, certain types of arthritis, and premenstrual syndrome.

About Aqua Titanium:
Phiten’s original technology causes titanium to dissolve in water to produce Aqua Titanium, which lets the titanium particles permeate each fiber of the material fabric. Titanium is a safe, hypoallergenic metal with strong, rust-resistant characteristics. Widely used in the medical and sports fields, this light metal also has the ability to regulate the body’s natural electric currents through cell ionization. Thus users of titanium products can relax and achieve a better performance when playing sports.

About Aqua Gold:
Using Phild Processing, Phiten successfully make gold dissolves in water to produce Aqua Gold. It can moderate the nervous system and maintain the balance of hormones.

What is Body Current?
There is always weak current flowing inside our bodies to transmit messages to control our movement. If a person is healthy, the current flows regularly. However, since people nowadays always work under pressure and surrounded by electric products, the flow of body current is affected and hence you will feel tired, stiff in muscles and pain in body parts easily. If the flow of body current is managed in a better way, it will make your muscles soother, enhance blood circulation and metabolic rate, and your body movement will become smoother.
Phiten’s products can help stabilize the current inside human body, which relieves pain and stiffness in muscles and joints and improves blood circulation and body balance. Our products are also effective for the temporary relief of pain from bursitis, sciatica, tendonitis, certain types of arthritis and numerous other conditions.

Visible proof:
In this experiment, photos showing body heat were taken before and immediately 30 minutes after Liquid Titanium was applied to the back.
The result: body temperature rose, back muscles relaxed, and blood flow was improved.
The heat generated acts in two ways. First the increase of heat in a localized area of the body relaxes the muscles and stimulates blood flow. Increased blood flow helps your body to better cleanse the bloodstream from pain causing agents. Secondly, heat blocks the free nerve endings in the skin to prevent them from sending pain signals to the brain, thereby helping you feel less pain.

So, who’s going to buy me some Aqua Titanium patches to go with my LifeWave patches?

I wonder if you put them right next to each other, if they’ll cause a rash.

I am a skeptic! A friend of mine brought some Phiten Titan (love that name) discs for a friend who was having shoulder problems. My remark at the time was that they will probably have the same effect as those magnetic bracelets.

Since I was also having a rotor cuff problem, I placed two of the patches on my shoulder and forgot about them. A few hours later my friend asks me how my pain was. I slowly put my arm up, then when I brought it down a wave of pain almost slammed me to the floor.

Needless to say, you might know my response (it contained a few clucking words)!

The next morning, however, I realized I had the best night’s sleep since three weeks before. And the pain was almost non-existent. The trigger for the wave of pain was still there, but the surrounding ache was gone.

Again, I am a skeptic, but after further testing (I also have a herniated disc that’s been dogging me for 20 years), there does seem to be relief from certain types of pain.

Some mechanism that relieves pain is at work here and needs to be investigated.

Maybe “I want to believe”.

Since you’re a skeptic, I’m sure you know that the above statement based on the anecdotal evidence you provided is not true.

So “liquid titanium” isn’t really liquid titanium, but rather some kind of titanium solution?
