I have a rose hematite in my childhood rock collection. I think it is mainly iron and maybe silica or quartz? How does it help you sleep?

I'm not even sure if it is helping -I'm just wondering if it's helped anyone else. Just today, I took a nap -I usually wake up really groggy and don't sleep well if I sleep during the day -but this time I was wearing a hematite bracelet and I slept well and woke up refreshed. I'm wondering if the hematite can actually help with that.

Hematite is a naturally magnetic rock. Some people think magnets can help with a number of things. Whether a fact or a placebo I don't know. If you think it helps you keep using it. Just don't rub a magnetic strip from an ID card or bank card on it as it will mess up the card.

I make jewelry and yes, hematite has magnetic powers and can help with sleep. I've pated links below that tell you the healing powers of many stones. Hope it helps.

Those just prove I need more jewelry!

I'll have t start making it again and mailing it to my adopted forum family. Used o sell it at craft shows and teach it in the after school and camp programs. Too unfocused to bead these days (hands shaky) but I do find the painting class relaxing and stimulating at the same time. Thinking of painting a Buddha for Klark for Christmas.

hello

whenever i sleep with my hematite anklets on i actually have a very very hard time falling asleep it is probably beacause when you were them you become grounded and connected to the earth and it makes you unable to dream and go to your "happy place" :P

I have never seen a single scientific source that says anything about healing properties of any stone. Electromagnetism doesn't work like that.

Show me proof, I say.

We're all celiacs and supporters, and as such should understand that answers lie in science and research, not wive's tales.

Yea but it is still fun to read and wonder. The amazing thing about the brain is that if someone thinks something will work sometimes it will. It doesn't hurt anyone. Well unless, for example, they go out and have 12 beers and think their amethyst will keep them sober. :lol:

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.
