Does EMF Jewelry Really Work?

I am frequently asked if gemstones really have health-promoting qualities, or is it a lot of hocus pocus and woo woo. After all, we have no mountain of science to substantiate these claims - at least what we Westerners consider to be "valid science." Yet gemstones and crystals have been used across the globe for millennia for a myriad of healing purposes. If there were nothing to this, I'd expect this practice would have been abandoned long ago.

When people ask me if EMF jewelry really works, I have a long answer and a short answer. The short answer is, I don’t know! There is no way for me to objectively test it out. I am not an expert. The long answer is, there are as many explanations as there are people offering an explanation. 

My background is in the sciences. Thirty years ago, I would have pronounced all of this stone healing stuff rubbish. But over the past few decades, I’ve realized that the more I learn about the world, the more I appreciate the expansiveness of what we don’t know—and how arrogant we would be if we claimed to have it all figured out. Western science is helpful but not the end-all, be-all.

I have created my EMF jewelry based on information gathered from experts in the crystal healing arts—people who know far more than I about these matters.

What I can tell you is that many people with EMF sensitivity (electrosensitivity) report feeling better in the presence of certain stones and crystals. These folks are exquisitely sensitive to the electromagnetic soup surrounding us today. Based on my own experience and that of others, I’m a believer.

As for an explanation as to how they work, I don't know. Crystal expert Robert Simmons has a theory. He postulates that because certain crystals act as resonators and transducers of electromagnetic energies (think of how galena and pyrite are used in crystal radio receivers), it's not too great a leap to imagine they are capable of transforming or amplifying other forms of energy in ways that are not detectable by scientific instruments. It is also conceivable that our bodies and/or consciousness are capable of detecting or "feeling" these energies, particularly when we are in touch with the appropriate crystal.

My recommendation to you? Put a few stones in your hand and decide for yourself!
