Osteoporosis is a debilitating condition often known as the ‘silent disease’ because it is only diagnosed when someone breaks a bone. In the UK there are approximately three million people suffering from Osteoporosis; the ‘silent disease’ causes more than 230,000 fractures happening every year.
Despite being more common in seniors, this bone condition can affect women and men of all ages. With bone density decreasing rapidly, women especially can find themselves fighting against Osteoporosis and subsequently bone fracture. The decrease of the hormone Oestrogen during menopause is a key factor as this hormone helps to maintain bone strength. After menopause this hormone is no longer produced. Women have 30% less bone mass than men and as a result of this, they are more prone to experience Osteoporosis.
Let’s now take a look at some wonderful crystals that can aid this condition.
Malachite is a great stone to have in your pouch as it has very strong healing properties and helps to reduce pain and other symptoms of Osteoporosis. This powerful healing stone can be placed directly on the affected area to absorb the energies of the malady.
As Osteoporosis can be very distressing, the use of Fluorite can be of great benefit as it has calming qualities and will reduce the pain and swelling. Fluorite is a wonderful crystal as it has diverse properties. It comes in many colours and the ideal one for Osteoporosis is Blue Fluorite. It balances the body energies promoting inner harmony and equilibrium to the wearer. It is an excellent stone for everyday use and helps to counteract most of the symptoms of Osteoporosis increasing bone density and facilitate the healing of fractures.
Amazonite is also a very soothing stone for the sufferer. This gorgeous green stone with cream veins helps calm the brain and nervous system and promote optimum health. It is a ‘must’ stone for Osteoporosis as it is said that Amazonite helps with the assistance of calcium absorption into the body.
Sunstone and Citrine (the ‘happy stones’ I mentioned in a previous article) have a place in your pouch of crystals for Osteoporosis. These stones help with the absorption of Vitamin D. They have a strong connection to the sun, which is a source of Vitamin D, helping to supplement any deficiency. Vitamin D helps to absorb the calcium in our diets for stronger bones. Sunstone is also a great anti-depressant and will help the wearer to feel more positive and enthusiastic about life.
Stilbite is also a very calming stone and will help you maintain a positive attitude. Keeping good thoughts is the basis for any type of healing but when it’s too difficult, due to pain and discomfort, Stilbite will facilitate it.
Scapolite is a lovely crystal that also brings peace of mind and calm during this debilitating condition.
Crystal healing is a complementary aid to Osteoporosis.
It's important to use all the conventional routes to prevent Osteoporosis such as to increase calcium intake through diet, supplement and food rich in Vitamin D. General exercise and weight bearing types of exercises are great to maintain bone density. Lifestyle factors, such as smoking and excessive drinking, also contribute to Osteoporosis.
Always keep crystals out of reach of children.
Please ensure that crystals are cleansed and energized before and after use.
Keep crystals from damage by placing them in a velvet or satin pouch.
Make sure you always use crystals with the best intentions for yourself; crystals will work with you then.
Hope you are all having a wonderful summer.
