Crystals For Cramps   Leave a comment

I’ve been on an epic quest, for the past 10 years or so, to find a natural way to alleviate my menstrual cramps.  I haven’t had much success until very recently, when I started using crystals to ease my discomfort.

I first started learning about crystals when I began researching natural ways to shrink my fibroid tumor.  It was suggested, through my readings, that one should use a Rose Quartz crystal to help in the shrinking process.  So, I went out and purchased my first crystal.  I’m not going to lie, I was definitely very skeptical.  While I love alternative healing methods, something about crystals just didn’t quite jive with me, but I figured, what could it hurt?  I began using the crystal regularly for my fibroid and then one day, while suffering from menstrual cramps, I thought, why not use my crystal then?  I was shocked, when after a few minutes, my cramps subsided!  I couldn’t believe it!

As time went on, I received another crystal as a gift; Citrine.  I eagerly looked up the uses for Citrine and was intrigued when I found out it could be used for reproductive issues among other things.  I began using the Citrine and Rose Quartz together and have been pleasantly surprised with the soothing effect they have on my cramps.

Here’s how I use them specifically for my menstrual cramps.  Ahem!  Crystal Basics 101:  Crystals line up with our Chakras.  Each chakra emanates a different color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet).  Thus, if a crystal is the color of the chakra it can be used to balance it by placing it on the corresponding chakra.  In the case of menstrual cramps, the chakra effected is the Sacral Chakra.  The Sacral Chakra is found about 3 inches below the naval on the front and on the lower back on the spine.  There are several placements that work.    For me, laying on my stomach and placing the crystals on my spine seems to be more effective than laying on my back and placing them below my navel.  I also like to split them up and place the Citrine on my back and the Rose Quartz on my lower abdomen.  I also use them with a heating pad as well.  A little bit of trial and error will help you figure out which is most effective for you.

I am still researching exactly how and why crystals work.  I’ve found some interesting explanations of the power of crystals.  The best I’ve read so far is from Kellie the crystal deva.  She states, “The reason why crystals and gemstones are wonderful and powerful healing tools are because of what science calls its piezoelectric effect.  (You can see this effect in the modern quartz watches). Crystals and gemstones respond to the electricity that is coursing through our body, and if the energy is sluggish, the constant electrical vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance, and stimulate these energies.

I need to note here that crystals only work for me when I am experiencing mild menstrual cramps; the kind that are uncomfortable, but not overwhelming.  When I am experiencing severe cramping, the crystals have a minimal effect on me.  Everyone responds differently, so you may find that they work for you regardless of the severity or only when mild, like me.

If you’re like me and have been suffering with menstrual cramps for years and are tired of popping painkillers like candy, give crystals a try.  You may find the relief you’ve been looking for, and your stomach lining will really appreciate it!
