Headaches can have several causes and therefore many remedies. Whether it be a small pain or a full-blown migraine, headaches can negatively affect your life.
Standard headache pain relief usually involves taking acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin, or caffeine, or a combination of them. While many of these prove effective in relieving the pain associated with headaches, they are not natural pain relief. Depending on the type of headache you have, and the severity, you may want to first try some natural approaches to pain relief. Natural ways to reduce headache symptoms may include acupressure, diet, yoga, essential oils, ginger, and crystals to name a few.
Crystals might sound like an unusual source of pain relief, but you may be surprised to know that there is a scientific theory that crystals can offer healing therapy. This is based on the Vibrations Theory, that all matter vibrates on a unique frequency. This relates to crystal healing with the theory that specific crystals vibrate on frequencies that can interact with the frequencies of a human body and assist with healing.
Often, headaches can be stress or tension related, occurring when you are busy and taking on too much all at once. When you start to feel a headache coming on, step away from your phone or computer and take a few minutes to lay down, placing crystals for pain relief on and around your head.
The best healing crystals for headache relief will differ from person to person, and you will have to experiment to see which ones work best for you.
Some popular crystal options for headache relief include Amethyst, Clear Quartz, and Selenite. You can also try Aquamarine, Angelite, Blue Lace Agate, Bustamite with Sugilite, Citrine, Hematite, Lapis Lazuli (migraines specifically), Moonstone, and Rose Quartz.
One of the most powerful crystals for headache relief is Selenite. Selenite healing crystals can unblock stagnant or stuck energy, to help promote a smooth flow of positive energy. Envision your headache as an energy blockage, and the Selenite helping to remove this block and any negative energy. To use lie flat on the ground, place the Selenite crystals on your forehead and the ground, around your head. You can also try this technique with Amethyst crystals.
Clear Quartz and Quartz crystal points are other good options for headache relief. A Quartz crystal point is especially powerful as it helps to direct the negative energy and pain away from your body and release it through the point. Next time you have a headache, sit in a quiet place with the lights turned down and hold a Quartz crystal point to your forehead. You want the flat side of the crystal to be touching your forehead and the point directing away from you.
