Healing Yourself with Crystals

What is disease?
o Conventional medicine recognizes illness as a pattern of tests and symptoms that lead to the diagnosis of a named disease. It is normally assumed that diseases will have identifiable causes, for example infections, injuries and chemical imbalances in the body?

o Oriental medicine believes disease is brought about by different means: internal causes (the emotions); external causes (the weather); and varies other causes such as bacteria, viruses, drugs, pollutants and diet.

o Modern complementary medicine sees disease as a state that results from physical, emotional, mental or spiritual imbalances, which cause you to be ill at ease with some aspect of yourself. Cause could therefore include such as thins as negative thinking, suppressed emotions, an addictive personality or other behaviour traits.

The Healing Power of Stones
When we wear stones, display them in the house or garden, or use them in ritual, we can access their healing powers. We can pick stones to heal us on a number of levels. One of the best ways is to pick a stone that will augment an element that is lacking in our chart, or will balance and fortify an element that predominates in our chart. Gemstone therapy is an alternative technique for strengthening the body and healing emotionally, help to relieve pain, depression, anxiety and stress. There are many different gemstones.
