After my stroke back in 2014, I needed all the help I could possibly get to recover the left side of my body.
One of the first things I did was purchase an amethyst bracelet (like this) to wear on my left side (my weak side). I wore it night and day and it helped me balance and stabilize myself quite noticeably. It also helped me get my seizures under control.
Amethyst has quite a reputation for being an incredible asset to assist in all kinds of healing.
From The Crystal Bible:
"Amethyst boost production of hormones, and tunes the endocrine system and metabolism. It strengthens the cleansing and eliminating or organs and the immune system. An excellent cleanser for the blood, Amethyst relieves physical, emotional, and psychological pain or stress and blocks geopathic stress. It eases headaches and releases tension. This stone reduces bruising, injuries, and swellings and treats hearing disorders. It heals dis-eases of the lungs and respiratory tract, skin conditions, cellular disorders, and dis-eases of the digestive tract. It is beneficial for the intestines, regulating flora, removing parasites, and encouraging reabsorption of water. Amethyst treat insomnia and brings restful sleep.
At a subtle level, Amethyst balances and connects the physical, mental, and emotional bodies, linking them to the spiritual. It cleanses the aura and transmutes negative energy and stimulates the throat and crown chakras."
After I noticed such an incredible difference from just wearing the bracelet, I decided I needed to purchase one of the infrared mats to further my healing. I should not have been surprised to find that they are made with amethyst. (This is the mat I have.)
Only 24 hours after using it the first time, I noticed a huge difference in my balance issues and feeling like I had a hollow head. With continued use, my seizures have stopped completely. Granted, my seizures were small electric jolts and misfires, not flop on the floor seizures that most people are familiar with. However, the jolts and misfires were 40-50 per day and were very draining. Having the small ones put me at a greater risk for a big seizure and I'm glad I didn't experience one of those!
This mat is also embedded with PEMF therapy at 7.83 hz. I don't use the PEMF therapy a lot on it but when I do, I will notice the difference for a week. I feel more grounded, balanced, stable in my feet, and my head is more clear. Because the PEMF is not a reverse therapy PEMF, I use it sparingly and only when I need it. (You can read more about PEMF devices here and why reverse PEMF waves are important.)
Instead of a very expensive PEMF device (between $3500-$5500+) I choose to use an affordable TENS/EMF combo unit to do wave stimulation where I need it. I use it on my upper back to keep my muscles clear of tension and my blood flowing freely to my sweet little brain. The one I use is FDA cleared. (My sister uses her's to prevent tension migraines and it's worked for her.)
Amethyst has proven to be a huge affordable addition to my healing repertoire after my stroke. My dog fights me for space on my mat and my daughter is always putting it in her room to lay on. I'll never be without one, again.
Someday I want a room full of amethyst and healing salt lamps. <3 Goals!
Happy healing everyone.
