If you suffer from chronic pain in your back, you may find yourself turning to the unique wonders of alternative medicine.

We who hurt chronically go through drugs, heat therapy, vitamins & minerals, massage -- anything we can think of just to try to feel better. There is a power in denial and distraction, in the power of positive thinking, the power of prayer. Therefore, one wonders how much positive thinking enters into the possibilities of healing through use of gemstones.

This is not to say I discount the possibilities. Today I’m researching and writing about the various gemstones which have a widespread reputation for combating chronic pain. Any feedback or helpful comments or experiences from readers will be chronicled in future blog entries. I want to hear from you!

The gemstones that are commonly believed to assist in the relief or prevention of pain are:

Amethyst: to assist in nerve damage, nerve pain,or neuralgia.

Carnelian: acts against arthritis and rheumatism.

Garnet: controls inflammation and promotes heat to affected areas.

Jasper: decreases pain in any area of the body.

Lapis Lazuli: lessens pain of neuralgia.

Malachite: to ward off rheumatism.

Sapphire: for general health.

Topaz: cures gout.

A gem I found recommended widely for pain of any and every kind is sapphire. My thought is: I have to get me some of those!

The use of gemstones in treating pain is introduced in several ways. Some require just wearing them as jewelry, but some treatments include using electronics in their application, oils, ointments, and/or meditation with use of the gemstones. Over the next several days I will be researching and reporting on the various methodologies that I find using the healing properties of gemstones.

And you dear reader I hope will send me your own research and knowledge and feedback. Anyone who has your own related blogs or websites, I welcome you to send your link and I will share it with all my readers!
