Note: Crystals cannot be an alternative for medical attention nor can they be a substitute.

Many people believe in the healing power of crystals. They can boost the energy they transmit to the body, or draw out and soak up unwanted energy from the body. The premise behind crystals can be energy protection, grounding, and combating the negative energy that’s coming to you while at the same time eliminating the sadness you might have.

Let me be clear. Depression is a complex problem. It requires multifaceted approach. You won't be able to deal with it just by using crystals. Most likely you would have to change your diet, improve your life style, manage your stress much better, include some meditation in case of mild depression, etc. But crystals have their place and can be used as auxiliary tools, especially in combination with mindfulness and meditation.
