It is unlikely in our experience. A wristband will help the tissue in the direct area in which it is placed. It will also have the beneficial effect on the blood as it circulates. Perhaps over a period of week/months as it helps flush out the waste deposits in the blood it may result in some benefits, but why wait that long? In placing magnets of sufficient power to the area concerned the relief should be seen within hours. The benefits to the system and detoxification effects remain the same.
