Crystals have been used for thousands of years in many ancient cultures as a natural part of medicine, for elixirs, protection, good luck, rituals and other purposes.
How can crystals lift headaches, improve our skin, support concentration, bring inner peace or energise and improve the quality of water or oils? A crystal's mineral constituents, structure and method of formation give it a specific vibration—an electromagnetic field, which does not alter nor get out of balance. It has been scientifically proven that the nuclei of human cells emit light impulses that are used for internal communication between cells and for coordinating tissues and organs. These biophotons are apparently affected by the electromagnetic resonance of crystals, although the exact mechanism is still to be discovered, though it could be described in the way the vibration of a guitar string makes the guitar body resonate.
When the electromagnetic field of a crystal comes into contact with the biophotons it influences:
- energy flow in the body (which may be called the meridians or activity of the chakras);
- stimulation of electrical nerve impulses;
- activity of the hormonal glands;
- metabolism of cells, tissue and organs
