There’s a large amount of people in the United States and around the world that are embracing alternatives to western medicine. From acupuncture to reflexology, there are many ways to deal with ailments apart from medications and surgery.

This unique belief in medical alternatives spills over into the world of gems as well. There’s been known to be great power in crystals and gems, using them in tune with nature to promote healing within the body.
