Crystals have healing effects in alternative medicine. Alternative medicine is the term used for medical products and practices that are not part of standard care. Standard care is the medical practice what the general doctors, nurses, and physical therapists practice. Some of the examples of alternative medicine are homeopathy, acupuncture, traditional medicine, etc.
Because everything is made up of energy; crystals are capable of helping by stabilizing and balancing the energy given off by everything around us. As our body is made of energy, there are specific points in our body known as Chakras from where the energy flows. The healthy Chakras mean how well the energy flows. The crystal healers follow the philosophy of Chakra systems. There are so many crystals found on Earth, and they have different healing properties.
Healing that crystals can cause are:
- Balance of overall mind and body connection
- Removing the negative energy that has been disturbing the chakra
- Crystals can be an amazing tool to boost meditation
- holding or being near a crystal can positively alter our consciousness
- studies have shown and proven that using crystals for healing may be used as a placebo effect.
