I'd give it a go, why the heck not. I've wasted money a lot less responsibly.

Well yeah, but that's not how the placebo effect works. You can't just go "I hear the placebo effect can fix a lot of the symptoms so here let me take these sugar pills and everything will be better". Knowledge of the product being a placebo entirely precludes its psychological effects.

And here's my question to you. If you had excruciating joint pain, and somebody told you this bracelet would help alleviate it, and you got one, and it did, would you care?

Allow me to answer your question with another question. If someone offered you something they called magical beans, and promised it would sprout into a goose that lays Faberge eggs, would you take it? For free, of course you would. But what if it was a dynasty league and they asked for Strasburg in return?
