Crystal/stone healing-anyone else?

  • By IamStable

    I am a Christian woman who is miserable with her RA. Yes, I see a good rheumy. Yes I take everything she recommends. It has been 6 yrs and I see myself going downhill more every 6 months or so. No I don’t work, yes I have insurance, yes I’m on disability. I am blessed.
    Of course there is no rhyme nor reason to this disease. Some days are “ok”. Many are not. So I looked into healing stones/crystals.
    Real or imagined, they help. Really. Look it up.

    Thanks for writing IamStable. I can’t personally speak to the efficacy of healing stones/crystals, but, as you say “real or imagined, they help” you and I’m glad you are getting some relief.
