As we move deeper into the 21st century, means of alternate healing are becoming more and more popular. These options aren’t necessarily new, though — some have been around for centuries.
With the modern-day means of healing, medical treatment and medicines becoming increasingly scrutinized, many people are turning to the more esoteric and alternative means. And they’re achieving better results.
The Stress Epidemic
It is safe to say that life in the 21st century is far more stressful than in previous times. The world has gone through many changes, with wars, epidemics, stock market crashes — all events that can take their toll on our daily lives.
What makes 21st-century stress worse is that we see it lead more and more to chronic diseases and ailments. Many studies have found that stress increases the fight-or-flight hormone cortisol. Now, it is known that small amounts of cortisol are healthy and necessary for the functioning of the body. But as we know, far too much of a good thing can be just as dangerous as too much of a bad thing.
Very high levels of cortisol over a long period of time can lead to high blood pressure, weight gain, Type 2 diabetes, and adrenal fatigue. These are all potentially life-threatening ailments.
What Makes Crystals Different from Traditional Medicines and Treatments?
Crystals come straight from the earth and possess radiant energies that have been known for centuries to work with the energy systems within the body. As living beings, we are made up of energies and our body functions based on these subtle waves that flow through us all the time.
Because crystals can hold and transmit these healing energies, they are an incredibly effective and affordable way of treating many ailments within the body — most of all stress. What makes them even more affordable is that they are rechargeable. All you have to do is put them in coarse sea salt under a full moon overnight, and the energy of the moon and sunrise will restore their earthly powers.
So Why Is Crystal Healing Better?
Because there are many different types of crystals, all of which have their own specific healing powers and can pinpoint the treatment of particular ailments, your options are not limited. You will be able to find the right crystal to treat exactly what needs to be treated.
Crystals are cut into all shapes and sizes and can be worn as jewelry, which makes their healing powers consistently available to you. No need to worry about remembering to take medication. There are also no negative side effects to the healing methods of crystals, unlike with medications and other forms of treatment.
A way to reap the healing and stress-relieving benefits of crystals is to keep a small bag with a variety of stones under your pillow. Just don’t forget to recharge them regularly.
