Ayurvedic and Astrological Prescription|
Ayurvedic doctors generally are also Vedic astrologers or work in conjunction with one, for a vedic horoscope will show weakness in certain cosmic energies which can be counteracted by wearing particular gems. This is due to the fact that different planets radiate different cosmic colors or energies, and weakness of certain planetary rays will mean insufficient absorption of particular cosmic colors. The (natural) gems are set into rings or necklaces with the back open so that the gemstone comes into contact with the skin.
Besides treatment of present maladies, such gems are often prescribed to ward off disease. They also strengthen certain "subtle" energies so can have benefic effects in attracting positive energies toward a person. This may be desired in areas of love and relationship, business, or many other facets of life to boost the positive energies, or to ward off or lessen negative ones that are causing distress.
Ayurvedic Gem Medicines
In India and Tibet especially there are pharmacists expert in making gem medicines called pisthis and bhasmas, as I mentioned previously. The bhasmas are prepared by crushing the gems into a powder, then burning them to ash in a special crucible for this purpose. The ash is then prepared with certain herbs or oils in a process that makes them nontoxic that they may be ingested. Pisthis are prepared without burning the gems to ash in preparing coral and pearl medicine. Gold and silver are also commonly made into bhasmas and have a strengthening effect on the nervous system. The preparations are made into pills or balms, but often left as a powder that the physician will mix into a medicinal preparation. They are extremely powerful and should never be taken without the expert advice of a qualified ayurvedic doctor.
Gem elixirs, on the other hand, may be made without using up the gemstones, so they may be used time and time again. The elixirs are prepared by placing the gems in separate bottles of 95% pure ethanol alcohol. They are left for 1 week to 3 months, depending on the gem elixir being prepared. We do not put more than one type of gem in any one bottle, although up to 5 of the same gem may be placed in one bottle. The bottles are then placed in a box and put in a dark place until ready. Either blank homeopathic pills are sprayed with the elixir, or a few drops are placed in a cup of water or juice to drink.
Another method is to soak the gems in a bowl of water overnight and drink the water. This method does not allow storage of the elixir, as the potency dissipates within a few hours. Therefore when making in water the patient must drink the elixir right away. Adding a few drops of alcohol can preserve them for a few days, but no more. Gem elixirs cannot harm us, even if wrongly prescribed, so are safer to take than pisthis and bhasmas when not under the care of an experienced ayurvedic doctor.
Throughout history these preparations have been used not only in India and Tibet, but also in Arabic countries and Europe. In my newest book (to be released in 2000) I have devoted an entire chapter to the medicinal uses of gems throughout history, and in all parts of the world. It should be noted that the Native Americans also used the science of gem therapy long before the Europeans arrived here.
Crystals or Gems?
Often I am asked about using crystals, there being so much propaganda about using them for healing. There is no comparison between using natural precious gems and semi-precious crystals. Quartz crystals have utility to be sure, but they are more transmitters (or amplifiers) of energy from a healer than they are capable of transmitting energy of their own. They absorb energies and therefore may be used in certain prescriptions to reduce fevers, but they must be constantly cleansed and purified to avoid passing the malady to the next user.
Precious gems, on the other hand, have stable properties inherent within them that anyone can utilize. Also note that cut and polished gems give far superior results than gem crystals left unpolished. The more brilliance and fire the gem projects, the more its energies can be used in healing. It should be noted that fake gems or synthetics have no healing potencies whatsoever, regardless of brilliance or fire perceived by the eye.
Frequencies in healing and electronic gem therapy
Every mother has experienced and naturally knows that rocking a crying baby back and forth once or twice a second encourages the child to sleep. What is occurring is that the rhythm is bringing about Delta brain waves. Massage can also induce Delta brain waves, as well as Alpha or Theta. These are the most important frequencies for healing. Delta waves are 0.1-3.2 megahertz, or cycles per second, and heal pain for they induce deep relaxation and sleep. Theta waves pulse at 3.2-7.8 megahertz and are used to heal trauma. They exist while dreaming, in deep meditative trance, or under hypnosis. Alpha waves pulse at 7.8-14 megahertz and heal through allowing an internal "balancing". We are relaxed and our attention is divided between internal affairs and the external world. Beta waves pulse at 14-25 megahertz and keep us focused on the external affairs of our lives being of an invigorating nature. High Beta waves are over 25 cycles per second and are never used in healing. This is the state of brain function under high anxiety, panic attacks, or schizophrenia.
In Europe health care professionals are on the cutting edge of technology in gem therapy. Not only alternative practitioners are using it, but traditional allopathic medical doctors have found its use so successful that the technology’s use is increasing rapidly. The most successful of these instruments combines the use of gems, color filters, frequency, and electronic amplification. The therapy is extremely versatile and effective for the majority of disorders of the body.
These electronic gem therapy instruments use low voltage lamps with three powerful lenses to focus the light beam. Inside are placed specific gems and color filters. The lamps are plugged into a precision electronic instrument that has digital monitors to display vibrational rate and intensity that can be adjusted with controls on the panel. By combining the natural healing frequencies with the gems and color filters the vibrational rate of cells, organs, or glands in the body are affected, thereby increasing the "pranic" or "chi" energies inherent within them.
This author began using one of these amazing instruments while living in England. The results were so positive that many doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals who heard of our work came to see its efficacy and inspired some to recommend patients, while others purchased the equipment for their clinics. We now use two different such instruments in our work now based in Pecos, New Mexico.
Medicine for the new millennium
Gem therapy combined with a common sense approach to better diet, exercise, and attitude of life has shown to be a most wonderful tool for healing. No drugs are used, or invasive surgical techniques, although we have seen dramatic results also in healing the body after surgery. For some ailments that are very advanced, drug therapies (or herbs) and surgery may be necessary, but use of gem therapy afterwards vastly improves nervous and immune system function and helps the body to recover far more quickly from the side effects.
It is being used to treat chronic pain, emotional pain and exhaustion, nervous disorders, skin problems, injuries, infections, allergies, and also muscular and skeletal problems in countless clinics in Europe and the United Kingdom utilizing different frequencies through the electronic instruments. Practitioners of gem therapy in Asia are now beginning to also use such instruments to increase the potency and bring more rapid results to their clinical work.
Health care workers using accupuncture or acupressure can train the gem lamps on the accupuncture points, marma points, or meridians of the body. The chakras can also be energized using the appropriate gemstones. This balances the patient’s vibrational rate and increases the biological energy levels. Opening the chakras accelerates emotional, physical, and spiritual development and can lead to developing higher states of consciousness.
Many people who have experienced the benefits of gem therapy either through wearing natural precious gems on the body or through the use of the electronic instruments with gems have considered it miraculous. A majority of patients treated to date have gained positive results immediately and experience rapid recoveries. It is not a miracle therapy, though, for it is based on sound scientific principles. The marriage of the ancient science of gem therapy used for thousands of years by cultures east and west combined with electronic instruments has brought a new utility to the science, and without doubt will be further improved upon in the future for even more amazing breakthroughs. As more health care professionals use and experience results using gem therapy we are sure to see effective procedures arising to treat disabling and life-threatening diseases now considered incurable. As the inimitable Ben Franklin once said "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" and using this therapy widely to protect against diseradiant health for everyone.
