Merryn’s Musings

Polarity Screens

“Always interested in preventative medicine for myself and others, I decided to pay a visit to a Holistic Health Exhibition held in London. I spent some time talking with a very enthusiastic sales person about the use of Polarity Screens which is a device that she claims has vastly improved her overall health by using them just fifteen minutes twice a day…The differences are endless and I have bought them as presents for several of my friends. I highly recommend them for any of these reasons but the effect is accumulative and I feel stronger energetic wise.”
