Crystals can keep depression away. That's no secret to those of us who use crystals every day, but it's always nice when medical studies support our experiences.
A study by world re-known doctor, Dr. Norman Shealy, shows that the use of crystals can have a huge impact on keeping depression away. Dr. Shealy conducted a wonderful study where he gave Quartz crystals to depression patients who had improved using his program. He gave the patients in the control group a piece of glass instead of a quartz crystal.
The study was double-blind so the patients did not know they were receiving glass instead of a Quartz crystal; and the nurses distributing the crystals also did not know they were handing out glass to patients. All patients were asked to wear their "crystals" around their neck for three months. Three months later, with no further treatment (not even anti-depressants), 70% of the patients who received the Quartz crystal remained out of depression. In stark contrast, only 28% of the patients who received glass remained out of depression.
This study shows what a wonderful tool crystals can be for increasing emotional health. Crystals can bring emotional stability and increase happiness, while absorbing the negative energy and negative emotions in your system. This results in greater emotional balance and an increase in overall well-being, since the connection between mental and physical health is now well-documented. Hopefully, more doctors will follow suit and conduct more studies on the amazing results of crystal healing.
