Therapist and healer Mita Bhan says thyroid malfunctions could cause irritability, sleep disorders, anxiety and depression. She recommends wearing healing crystals
Thyroid can affect adults, teens, even children. Two kinds of thyroid exists: hypothyroid where the thyroid gland is underactive or sluggish leading to weight gain and difficulty in shedding weight and hyperthyroid or an overactive thyroid which results in weight loss and inability to gain weight despite increased intake of food.
Apart from the physical symptoms related to weight, depression, anxiety, irritability, sexual dysfunction, sleep disturbances, negative thoughts and fears are other symptoms associated with it; these can be minimised with alternative therapies like crystal healing.
Balancing properties: Healing crystals for thyroid can be worn as bracelets, pendants or carried around in your pocket in the form of a tumbled stone. If you are not one for carrying or wearing crystals, placing a large stone by your bedside/office table works just as well.
The following healing crystals can be used for balancing symptoms associated with hypothyroid and hyperthyroid.
- Amber, more of a resin than a crystal is a lovely goldenish-brown and is especially helpful in underactive thyroid glands. Amber boosts absorption of iodine and has been used since ancient times for iodine deficiency. It is best worn as a necklace or a pendant, and is easily available and affordable.
- Blue Chalcedony, a beautiful pastel blue crystal works primarily as a relieving stone soothing an overactive thyroid and reducing nervous tension. It can be worn as a pendant or a necklace and reduces anger, anxiety and mood swings.
- Aquamarine, bluish green in colour is readily available, but is expensive. It works as a balancer for both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid. An effective regulator of the glands, aquamarine also helps release negative thoughts, memories and unnecessary attachments to people and incidents of the past.
- Royal blue with silvery-gold flecks, lapiz lazuli has been a popular choice for healers since centuries. It harmonises the thyroid glands, promotes mental harmony and focuses on what’s truly important.
Healing crystals work slowly but surely. Effects can be felt within a week of regular contact with the crystal. Wearing them has no side effects, but wear them only after cleansing the stone and having it energised by an energy healer. Attend an energy healing session with crystals to get a feel of how they work.
