Taking vitamin and mineral supplements internally can give a body what it needs to stay healthy. Patches that deliver small and slow amounts of medication via the skin can help heal as well (i.e. nicotine patches, hormone patches, sea-sick prevention patches). So it should be no surprise that science is (re)discovering a hybrid of the two – minerals you wear, in the form of Therapeutic Gemstones.
When my doctor prescribed Therapeutic Gemstones, the image of a woman draped in jewels lamenting “I have a headache – bring me the emeralds!” came to mind. I looked into Therapeutic Gemstones because I was curious and humored…and wanted to get well. I learned that gemstones today are used in lasers to perform delicate surgeries, and in computers to propel information around the globe, so why not in healing as well? Some may find it hard to imagine that an object resembling ordinary jewelry could improve health and wellbeing. I figure if wearing a necklace helps my body get or stay well, then why not wear the necklace? I have no problem letting minerals or mineral energy absorb through my skin – while looking elegant at the same time.
Here’s a quote from Former Clinical Assistant Professor University of Washington School of Medicine, Mark A. Tomski: “After 25 years of practicing medicine, I have found gemstone energy medicine to be the link between ancient and modern treatment. Therapeutic gems have made me a more sensitive and receptive practitioner and have been an indispensable adjunct to my practice.”
I’m currently wearing gemstone necklaces of Mother of Pearl, and Black Onyx. Not only are they pretty, but also they seem to be affecting my health in subtle positive ways. If you’d like to learn more about Gem Therapy, click here.
