Homeopathics and Gemstone Formulas: A Comparison of Energy Medicine Remedies

Homeopathic remedies and gem formulas are both energy medicine remedies. They look the same, as each is comprised of tiny edible white spheres, or pillules. They both work energetically to help the body heal conditions for which mainstream medicine has found no cure. And they both can access a person's physical, emotional, and mental aspects to promote greater health and harmony.

Alternative health practitioners work with both types of remedies, although gemstone therapists tend to focus on the gem formulas and the application of actual healing gemstones.

The differences between these types of remedies include what they are made of, how they are made, and the theory behind how they work. To start, homeopathic remedies are made of sucrose or lactose. Gem formula remedies are prepared using all-natural xylitol.

They are each made differently as well. To make homeopathic remedies you begin with a material, usually a specific plant, although certain minerals and salts may also be used. The plant is macerated and placed in an alcohol solution to draw out the plant's healing properties. The result is called a mother tincture.

One part of a mother tincture is put into a container to which nine parts of a water-alcohol solution is added. The mixture is then "succussed," or shaken with impact, to make a 1X potency. To make a 2X potency, you take 1 part of the 1X potency mixture and add it to 9 parts of the diluting solution and succuss. Common homeopathic potencies begin at 6X. This means that one part of the mother tincture is now combined with a million parts of the diluting solution.

Gem formula gemstone energy medicine remedies are made from top-quality healing crystals fashioned into spheres. These gemstones are arranged in certain geometric patterns that support the healing purpose of the formula. This arrangement is called a "gemandala." The energies of the gemandala are transferred into the xylitol pillules directly using a special device. This device imprints the gem energies into the molecular structure of the xylitol. Once the imprinting is complete, the remedies are ready to use. No succussing or other processing is required.

When a gem formula spray is being made, gemstone energies are imprinted into 180 proof alcohol to produce a mother tincture. This mother tincture is diluted with enough water to yield a solution of 10% or 20% alcohol, depending on the formula. Again, no succussing or further processing is necessary.

So, another difference between these two types of energy medicine remedies is that homeopathics are sold in different potencies. Gem formula remedies are standardized, however, they could be made stronger if they were left in the imprinting device for a longer period of time.

The final step in making homeopathic remedies is to spray the sugar pillules with the desired homeopathic dilution. When taking a dose of homeopathics, it is recommended that you do not touch the pillules, simply because doing so can remove the solution from their surface. Because gemstone energies in a gem formula are …

Heal Your Liver With Eden Energy Medicine

Your liver is the largest physical organ in the body. It is involved in digestion, metabolism, storage and distribution of nourishment, filtration, detoxification, and immune function.

You'd think having short legs wouldn't be a problem. Less body to nourish and protect, right? But according to the online article, "The Ten Weirdest Clues to Your Body's Health," that's not the case!

"If your legs are on the stocky side, you may need to take better care of your liver. In a 2008 study, British researchers found that women with legs between 20 and 29 inches tended to have higher levels of four enzymes that indicate liver disease . Factors such as childhood nutrition may not only influence growth patterns, but also liver development well into adulthood, say researchers.

Prevent it: Avoid exposure to toxins your liver has to process, which will keep it healthier, longer. Wear a mask and gloves while cleaning or working with any type of harsh chemical. Limit alcohol intake to one 5-ounce glass of wine or 12-ounce bottle of beer daily. "

Eden Energy Medicine can be another easy way to support your Liver's health. Massaging your hands and feet on a daily basis will keep your liver strong and healthy. It's a lovely form of self-care as well, which can take place in a bubble bath, in bed, while watching a good movie or listening to good music. If you have a partner in your life, try trading foot and hand massages as a form of nurturing, nonsexual touch.

The acupuncture points on the feet that are most effective for keeping your liver clear are found at the "V" where the big toe meets the second toe on the top of the foot at the base of the metatarsal bridge. If nothing else, be sure to massage these "source points" of Liver chi several times a day.

Your liver is very important to hormonal health. If you have PMS, sedating Liver Meridian can help immensely with groin pain. The simplest way to sedate Liver Meridian is to lie down and place your fingertips where your legs attach to your body. Rest in this pose for two to three minutes.

You can also sedate your Liver Meridian by holding specific acupuncture points. This is known as acupressure and it is usually the most effective. Here's how:

1. Simultaneously place the middle finger of one hand on Liver 2 (inside of big toe where it meets the foot) and the other hand on Heart 8 (make a fist; see where the pinky touches the palm? That's Heart 8). Press in lightly. Hold for two minutes.

2. Repeat on the other side.

3. Then place the middle finger of one hand on Liver 4 (a little dip in front of the anklebone) and the middle finger of the other hand on Lung 8 (on the crease of the wrist just below the thumb).

Don't panic about pinpoint accuracy. Meridian points have a range of a dime to a quarter. …
