Many people can literally feel the winter chill in their bones and joints. Cold weather can cause stiff joints to be even sorer, making it difficult to complete everyday chores. However, magnet therapy offers a new option of treatment that many people say has helped ease their pains. It has been used for thousands of years around the world - and is still being used today.
Aristotle wrote in 111 B.C. about the healing effects of magnets. And in the 1600's, Queen Elizabeth's doctor wrote an entire book on the subject. This magnetic theory revolves around the premise that magnets affect the circulatory system and the blood flow. The increased circulation gives the body more of the nutrients it needs from the blood. Some researchers believe that certain types of illnesses are caused by imbalances in the body's biological and magnetic fields. Some joint pain is caused by similar, repeated movements of a joint, such as golfers┐ pain ┐ it has been said that bioelectromagnetic therapy can help here too.
While consulting with your doctor is the best way to begin treating stiff and sore joints and aches and pains, magnetic bracelets may offer an alternative solution to the pain through the chilly winter season and the rest of the year. However, never were magnetic products next to a watch, during pregnancy, or if you have a pacemaker.
Hematite is one of the most common minerals, being the principle ore of iron. The color of most red rock, like sandstone, is caused by small amounts of hematite. Although usually black in jewelry, it may also be responsible for the red color of garnet and ruby. All non-crystalline forms of hematite are transformations of the mineral Limonite that lost water, possibly due to heat. Hence the recent excitement of the discovery of grey hematite on the planet Mars ┐ suggesting there was once water present. Only well formed hematite crystals are cut and polished into cabochons for jewelry, beads, and ornaments.
Hematite is a protective stone and it's energies help you connect with the Earth and its benefits. Use this stone during meditation to escape the illusionary chains of physical reality and become more connected to your true, spirit self - its been used as an aid to astral projection. It also bolsters low self-esteem, making you feel more comfortable and better about yourself. Its grounding and soothing energies can help you relax and unwind both physically and mentally. Hematite is said to be closely tied to the blood due to its iron content. Believed to aid the kidneys, speed tissue regeneration, and contribute to improving the blood, and so the overall health of your entire body.
