Crystal Cures, Part 7

We continue our series on gems as medicine


Customers with a taste for the unusual may be interested in gem therapy, a discipline developed by a professor at the University of Pisa in Italy. It’s based on another alternative discipline, floritherapy, developed by British homeopath Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s. Here are some symptoms, the plants Bach recommended to treat them and the gems suggested for the same symptoms.

Exhaustion, Tension

Plant treatment: Oak.

Gem treatment: Malachite to understand limits, chrysoberyl to understand oneself.

Low Blood Pressure

Gem treatments: Turquoise to relax, topaz to reduce stress.

Guilt, Inferiority

Plant treatment: Pine.

Gem treatments: Pink quartz to stimulate self-esteem and self-respect.
