    Do you think crystals actually help "heal" the human body?

    I know there are a lot of trends out there that follow "new age" practices of using certain stones or crystals to heal the human body and many people swear by it but on a scientific standpoint, I am struggled to find any sound research on it. I am not denying the claims of these people because I have dabbled in used frequencies (sound) for helping manage pain and I know that does work, at least for me.

    What are your thoughts on healing stones and crystals? Have you ever read any scientific research on the topic?

    To be blunt, I don't think they would do anything on a scientific basis. However, if they have a placebo effect that makes people feel better, so be it! (As long as they're not spending heaps of money on this.)

    Y E S 100% I have witnessed the power of crystals (Emeralds in particular) firsthand in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2.
    Chaos Emeralds are NOT to be doubted.

    On a slightly more serious note, my sister has a bunch of crystals for whatever reason (idk how they're supposed to work), and my best friend growing up...well...his whole family was 100% all-in on crystal healing and reiki stuff. They had Reiki Level 3 certificated framed on their walls and he would touch his dog and violently shake his hands saying that he was healing him. Placebo has been shown to actually cause biological changes in a person so I don't doubt that it works to some degree, but not for the reasons they think it does.

    Whenever my sister talks about this stuff I start spouting off Shadow the Hedgehog lines. "Chaos Control!" "Let me show you my real power!"
    Am I a dick? Yeah. Is it funny? Ohhhh yes.

    There's a girl at work who has crystals all around her computer to protect her from blue light and she even places water in a crystal bowl on her windowsill to collect "full moon water". I think the science behind all of it is bullshit, but as Mantis pointed out if the placebo effect is strong enough there may be some measurable changes in one's health.

    Hello practicing witch here! Iím a sucker for crystals and to be honest, yea, most of their healing powers are probably all in my head. Modern witchcraft at its core is really just setting your intentions, manifestation, and the law of attraction. Crystals are a tool to help guide those intentions and are physical reminders of the goals youíve set or the energy you want to put out into the world. This may come off very silly, but honestly it only works if you believe it does.

    I would never use a crystal in place of actual medical treatment, and I would say the majority of the witch/new age community feels this way too. Itís more of a Ďsupplementí and encourages meditation and mindfulness. I believe that some of them do help with my anxiety, but it could also just be the tactile sensation of holding an object in my hand and focusing on the textures.

    Will there ever be hard scientific proof that crystals emit certain energies or do different things? Probably not. But Iíll enjoy my dragon hoard of shiny rocks none the less. At least they make a pretty decoration.

    Smokey quartz and hematite work well for me to calm my anxiety. Both of their properties include anxiety relief, but hematite is all supposed to block other people's emotions from affecting you.

    Diabolos is my home server. I was using a gaming laptop to play but that fried so I'm waiting on a new PC to come. I just started to get really into it too

    I can tell from my own experience that something that can be refered to magic exists. But it is different and more scary than what you seem to practice.
