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.

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:

    • Umm Spicely is one of the few I trust, and they tested negative after some asshat came here claiming gluten on them last time. I wasted my money and time Nima Testing my spicely organic spices. I use them as a gluten free chef, and baker.

      I also have UC and I can tell you, anything but the smallest amounts of garlic, onions, or hot peppers will set off my UC. It HATES garlic and onions and I have to use them just slightly, spicy peppers it is picky some days it is alright with paprika in small amounts same with ancho, and tiny pinches of Cayenne other days even cumin might make it angery. It is a really picky disease, and you sort of have to stick to easy herbs on bad days for seasoning to appease the colon gods. PS Marshmallow Root, Aloe Vera inner filet juice, and Slippery Elm can be great so soothing the beast. I am doing the family turkey this year with poultry seasoning, and butter flavored coconut oil, avoiding garlic, only using a 1/4 sweet onion and a celery butt on the inside, and for flavor injecting it with liquid smoke and putting bacon over it. My keto dressing this year with my UC also has the onion omitted, just using poultry herbs and a bit of celery sauteed and pulsed ina food processor.

      I had to remove grains from my diet completely, fruits, sugars, carbs all caused my UC to flare up so they all had to go. I changed to a ketogenic diet.
    • I agree with the advice given.  You could also ask for the rest of the celiac panel since you were barely positive on the DGP IGG.  This will help determine if the slight positive was a fluke.  Make sure that you have been eating gluten for at least 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood test.  If you had been gluten free, the tests would not be accurate (invalid).  All celiac disease testing requires you to be on a full gluten diet.   I personally tested positive on only the DGP IgA, but my result was not borderline like yours.   I am sorry that your result is not clear.  ☹️
    • We never eat at LAX.  We do bring our own food or purchase gluten-free snacks while traveling through various airports.  Often you can find fresh fruit options.  If going international, do not rely on any airline to remember to load a gluten-free meal. You may end up starving!  
    • Your celiac test results are normal.  But four weeks may not be enough time for your body to develop antibodies specific to a gluten exposure.   Celiac centers recommend 8 to 12 weeks for blood tests and only 2 to 4 for an endoscopy to obtain intestinal biopsies.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Since you already have one AI issue, maybe you can go directly to an endoscopy.  This is something you need to discuss with your doctor as insurance has a say....ugh!   Even if negative for celiac disease, I would look to an autoimmune diet that may help relieve your AI flares.  I would encourage you to really rule out celiac disease first, if possible.  
    • Welcome!  While it may be true for you (your biopsies may have revealed damage while you had been gluten free), researchers recommend a gluten diet for all celiac tests.  Amounts and times may vary.    Why because experts really do not know how each individual reacts to gluten.  A person can heal in as little as two weeks or damage can last for months to years (for a variety of reasons,like refractory celiac disease or a hidden gluten sources). To insure the best diagnostic outcome, it is best to be prudent and be on a gluten diet.  😊 I am glad that you are doing well.  Nice to know that antihistamines can help reduce some symptoms of DH.  I do not have DH, but I do deal with chronic autoimmune hives.  Thank goodness for antihistamines!   Please continue to share your DH tips.  We do not have as many members who have DH and we could use your expertise.
