In these days of high doctor and medication costs, people are looking for alternatives to modern medicine. The news frequently tells of the harm that might be done by using some of today’s medications, even though government regulations try to keep people safe. Or perhaps even modern medicine cannot help people feel better, no matter how many medications they try. Many people are looking into healing techniques that have been used for centuries in hopes of finding relief for their pain or healing from other types of physical illnesses. In this quest, they have discovered that natural stones and minerals can help them feel better without some of the side effects that medications can have.
Individual stones and minerals have been used for specific healing qualities for thousands of years. People use stones for healing by wearing the stones or carrying the stones with them. The belief surrounding healing with natural stones and minerals is that the body is made of energy. When this energy is disrupted either physically, mentally or spiritually, some action needs to be taken to get the body’s energy flowing again. Using certain stones by wearing the stones, carrying the stones or placing them on the body is believed to get that energy flowing again, helping the body feel better. For example, crystals have been used for their healing energy. Each stone or mineral used has specific ability to heal specific illnesses, whether mental or physical. And a person certainly loses nothing by trying out a stone or minerals healing properties. They do, however, have everything to gain if the stone helps with their illness.
