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 Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
