Crystal healing has been a type of pseudoscience alternative therapy used for a variety of conditions known to the human body. Stemming from multiple ancient healing ideas, they offer a chance to rebalance the energy systems (Chakras) while connecting to the chakras of the body.
Throughout the use of these traditional healing practices, I notice many people feel the need to preach to me that they are fake. I don't care what others say to me since I know what works best for my body however this can be quite annoying. If you have something negative to say, please keep it to yourself. Maybe they are only working because of a placebo effect but at least someone is receiving benefits, right?
There is no straight scientific evidence stating that crystals directly heal humans, yet we see many spiritual healers and traditional therapists using this method to treat anxiety, depression, stomach ulcers, kidney function, alcoholism and many more ailments/diseases. Personally, I like to have scientific evidence to back up what I preach on here and there is data showing how crystals can give off and focus our energies. Research is up and coming about this topic, making it exciting to talk about.
I do know that I feel different when I carry or use my crystals throughout the day. I feel safer and more grounded in my energy. Whether this is the placebo effect or not, I will continue to use them as their beauty continues to amaze me.
One of the oldest medicines known to man is within the practice known as Ayurveda (meaning the knowledge of life and longevity). Stemming from Ancient India, this is the type of information I hope to pursue studies in throughout my life to be able to share with others. One of the main concepts is the mind and body are ONE. They are not separated and healing needs to be focussed on helping all dimensions of health.
