On Sunday, a lady from church saw me limping, and said that she had something to show me that might help.
Tonight, she showed me magnetic shoe inserts. I'm listening politely, and thinking "BS!," but then the demonstrations came.
She had me hold my arms out in front of me, hands clasped together, and she proceeded to push me back by pushing up on my arms (mechanical advantage). Then I stood on the inserts, did (what I thought) was the same thing, and I didn't get pushed back.
I'm very concerned that I was taken for a fool, but I can't figure out how. All I could find on the web was that it might have been the "power of suggestion" but is there some other common trick that's employed?
I mean, if they help that much, why not, but if it's magnetic snake oil it's of course not worth the money.
