Back To Blogging

I haven’t blogged in a while, but people say I should get back to it.

We have been very busy. We are up to over 17,000 CopperZaps sold. Word of mouth is increasing, and more past customers are reordering for gifts.

We have fielded thousands of questions about using copper to prevent colds naturally, and also flu and other problems. We have taken many great reports from customers. When they tell us CopperZap has made their lives better, that’s the most gratifying thing about this whole exciting adventure.

To meet the demand, we have grown to 10 employees. They have melded into a great team of dedicated individuals that work really well together and do all our manufacturing, marketing, order-taking, and customer service.

That leaves me no excuse not to get back to blogging.

What Is Natural Cold Prevention?

Many remedies have been tried for centuries to prevent colds naturally, everything from garlic to Echinacea tea to zinc tablets. These are natural, so they don’t carry the risks many unnatural remedies do.

The only problem is, none of them work well enough. They may lessen a cold, but they generally can’t stop it completely.

Then scientists discovered copper’s ability to kill viruses.

CopperZap is the first product that delivers just enough natural copper to the exact right spot to kill cold viruses and completely and naturally stop a cold before it starts. Copper is the best natural cold prevention.

Turns Out CopperZap Is Not Just For Colds And Flu

When we started six years ago, we thought CopperZap was just for colds and flu.

Boy were we wrong.

Almost immediately we started hearing from customers that it could help with flu, sinus trouble, congestion, and cold sores. Not everybody, but a high percentage of people with these problems said copper either helped or relieved the problem entirely.

People say it also prevents them from getting sick after airplane flights and after being around sick people. People say it stops infections in cuts and skin lesions so they can heal faster. Some say it can eliminate canker sores and finger warts.

From other reports, we have learned that copper water, which the latest Directions tell you how to make using a CopperZap, can sanitize retainers, dentures, sponges, etc. It can also reduce mold and mildew and deodorize support garments and joint braces.

Natural cold and flu prevention is still the primary target for CopperZap. But our customers have taught us copper can do a lot more than we thought!

Sleeping Better Without Stuffiness

A gentleman who did not want to be identified publicly recently ordered a CopperZap. He said he wanted to try it out and if it worked he would order one for his daughter. He called a week or so later and said he had used it several nights before bed, because night time stuffiness often disturbed his sleep. “It works,” he said, “It’s the best sleep I’ve had in years!” He ordered one to be sent to his daughter as a gift.

16 Flights … Not Even A Sniffle

A frequent flyer says:

“Traveled to NY and Florida in November. Two week cold upon return. Traveled to NY and PA in December. 2 week cold. Read about CopperZap and though skeptical, send Doug an email. Picked up CopperZap from Doug 2 days before next business trip. On 16 flights from January 11 to today, March 17. Used CopperZap every day whether flying or not. When traveling, 4 or 5 times per day. Not even a sniffle since January 11! And I think my seasonal Arizona spring allergies are actually not quite as bad. I am so grateful for this product! My health in general and when traveling in particular have been transformed! AND I am a total believer!”

This Is So Cool

Just came across an earlier email I had overlooked:

“We just got ours in the mail. I have had a freakin headache for the past two days. Mainly from the pressure from my congested sinuses. Totally blocked and sounded like I was talking with my nose plugged. Finally I get desperate and pull this thing out and use it. Within minutes, my head cleared and all the junk in my nose and throat moved (I’ll put it delicately). I am shocked, no more headache, no more congestion. This is so cool. I don’t normally buy into this stuff, but once you read about it and then use it you will be amazed.”

Copper Against Ebola? It’s Well Worth A Try

Post by Jennifer Rickard

I keep an eye out for articles and news on copper and its germ-fighting capabilities. I was pleased to come across an article featuring Bill Keevil in Science Daily dated October 30, 2014.

I’ve begun to think of him as a friend, the way I do when I see a local newscaster at the grocery store or bank. My face lights up in recognition and I say hi, only belatedly realizing that just because they’re in my living room at five o’clock, doesn’t mean I am in theirs.

Bill Keevil and I go back over a year – to when I first started researching copper’s antimicrobial properties. He is prominent in the research, even though there are well over 100 studies, many done by other researchers. He is Chair of Environmental Healthcare, professor and researcher at the University of Southampton in the UK . (His work can be seen on several Youtube videos.)

In this latest article, he touched on a subject that’s been on everyone’s mind since late last spring or early summer – Ebola. Probably most Americans had never heard of the hemorrhagic fevers until this one made world news. And now they know more than they ever wanted to.

This article is entitled “Could Copper Prevent Spread of Ebola?” Because Doug and I are so involved with learning about and teaching people about copper’s ability to kill viruses, bacteria and fungi, it was one of the first questions we asked. We tossed the idea around and decided that yes, of course it could. Copper kills over 170 different disease-causing germs.

Because of limited access to laboratories with the required safety clearances for Ebola, no testing has been done. But Professor Keevil says this, “Based on our research on viruses of similar genetic structure, we expect copper surfaces to inactivate Ebola, and to help control the spread of this virus if employed for publicly-used touch surfaces.”

We wonder if copper might help in this way, too: a healthcare worker rubs copper in the nose, on the face and hands before suiting up to attend to patients. He does the same thing afterwards, maybe several times for the next few hours. Other people living around this disease might also be protected by keeping their skin and nostrils “copperated”. (Doug coined the term). It’s thought that copper ions remaining on the skin may keep protecting for some period of time afterwards.

It just might save a life. Wouldn’t you say it’s well worth a try?

Early Adopters Wanted

I have been completely mystified that CopperZaps are not flying off the shelves. I couldn’t understand why something so cutting-edge and more importantly something that is easy and works so well meets with such skepticism.

Until I remembered a class I took in grad school that taught me about the Innovation Adoption Lifecycle. In medical fields, there’s another term for a similar phenomenon. It’s called the Normalization Process Theory, but I am not going to go there!

In the Innovation Adoption Lifecycle, there is a bell curve of users that illustrates the percentages of them along that curve, as they adopt a new product or technology.

So, according to this curve, only 2.5% of people are innovators. Early adopters make up another 13.5 percent of people. Early majority and late majority each comprise 34% and lastly, the laggards make up 16% of people.

There’s my answer. It isn’t mystifying after all – just frustrating, but completely understandable. The phenomenon of keeping up with the Joneses may not be about prestige after all. Perhaps it is just that 68% of people are adopting new products all around the same time. I am impatient for that day.

It Works Again!

Penny Crosby just sent us a second testimonial:

This product is amazing, once again it saved me from getting sick. Copper zap works far better than any product I have ever tried including the flu shot. I work as a Personal Care Giver. I can’t afford to get sick, and that was nearly impossible to avoid until I tried this product. I started feeling flu like symptoms head ache, body ache, sore throat. I used my Copper Zap. Twelve hours later I felt as good as new. I was so worried I was going to have to miss work, which I can’t afford to do, I have people that depend on me and thanks to Copper Zap they can. This is a must have product. Everyone must have one. IT WORKS.
Thank you
Sincerely Penny Crosby

She followed up with another email saying “it’s a great product we support it 100%. I’m so grateful to have one it has saved me from getting sick more than once.”

Thanks, Penny!
