Mosquitoes find their victims by smell. Specifically, their sensory organs are trained to zero in on sources of carbon dioxide and lactic acid because these chemicals lead them to warm-blooded animals, like you and me.
Chemical repellents like OFF! repel mosquitoes, but not because mosquitoes don’t like the smell of these repellents. Rather, it’s because the chemical DEET is very effective at masking the smell of carbon dioxide and lactic acid. When you’re wearing DEET, the mosquitoes can’t smell you and so they leave you alone. Natural repellents like geranium oil or citronella work the same way, they just don’t seem to be quite as effective as DEET.
Gold Salts for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Oral (by mouth)
Intramuscular (by a shot or injection)
gold sodium thiomalate
How It Works
It is not understood exactly how gold works to treat rheumatoid arthritis. But gold salts appear to accumulate slowly in the body and, over time, they reduce inflammation and slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis.
Gold injections are given every week for the first 22 weeks. After that, gold may be given less often if it is working.1
Why It Is Used
Gold is used to reduce inflammation and slow disease progression in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Gold is not usually the first treatment given to people with rheumatoid arthritis, since methotrexate and other disease-modifying antirheumaticdrugs (DMARDs) are available.
BY DR. ROBERT C. BRIGHT
Gold has been known to possess a warm energy that brings
soothing vibrations to the body to aid in the healing process
Think, does anyone completely understand the importance of energy and how energies affect the body? Does anyone realize the significance and ramifications involved spiritually, mentally and physically when the body adapts to different energy forms, patterns and forces? In generations past, the techniques and philosophies of health, along with experiments with energies, often included various metals and their effect on the body. The effects of gold are subtle, but definitely apparent.
When studying energies, we find that in some older societies and older countries, gold was used for healing or was thought to have had healing properties. They used, at that time, 24-karat gold, not gold alloyed with other metals. Other metals change the properties of the pure gold and the vibrations emitting from it. If a person took pure gold and put it on an infection or a sore spot, it was said to help heal the wound and control infection. It was considered that gold possessed an energy that brought warm, soothing vibrations to the body to aid healing, for when the body relaxes and the blood vessels in the cells aren’t as constricted, blood can move through the tissue spaces more easily. Since all healing is the growth of new cells replacing the dead cells, the body would heal much better and faster, just as those people who have learned to meditate and use the other various arts of relaxation can testify.
Something impossible has happened. Yet the “impossible” has been proven to be true. Laboratories around the globe have confirmed that the rate of radioactive decay—once thought to be a constant and a bedrock of science—is no longer a constant. Something being emitted from the sun is interacting with matter in strange and unknown ways with the startling potential to dramatically change the nature of the very Earth itself.

Being in the watch/jewelery business off and on for many years.
I've seen people who've reacted strangely to different metals touching their skins.
Let's talk about gold. The gold jewelry you wear is not 100% gold.
It comes in different karats. 24k is pure gold. 18k is about 75% gold, 14k is about 58% gold and so on.
24K = .999
18K = .750
14K = .585
10K = .417
The other percentage of the metal is an alloy usually silver and copper. So depending on the mix of silver or copper in the alloy you get different colors.
Now it's possible that your sweat is eating away at the copper in the gold. Do you notice any green tinge to the jewelry?
Or possibly even the silver. I've seen some people that put silver on and turn it black.
So it could possibly be you are really eating away at the bracelet.edit on 8-1-2014 by grey580 because: (no reason given)
If you are in a hard water area where a lot of chlorine is added, or swimming in chlorinated water, hot tubs etc it is possibly from chlorine stress

My thinking is in line with yours. I will say I love that show about real life super humans. You know the one that are magnetic, or can absorb electricity or swim in ice cold water etc etc etc. We are discovering that their are allot of special people around the world. Some we can explain answer some we have no answer for.
Need more info. Like does it happen over time, how long.
Are you sweating.
Working with chemicals.
Types of clothing worn.
Where are you geographically. Could be environmental.
Do you know for sure about the purity of the gold. For instance person caught selling gold in mall that in tests showed had little or no gold in it, despite being stamped so. This could explain your issue.
Lots of actual data missing here to give real answers lol.
