The Healing Crystals for Headaches

By Felicia Eisnnicher •  5 min read

Headaches are in general a sign of stress, overtiredness, tension, or various kinds of illnesses. If you always suffer from headaches, try using the best crystals for healing headaches listed below.

These can originate from the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, or the brain’s membranes. If there’s no obvious external cause such as a blow to the head, then the causes are typically blood pressure, inflammation, or other changes in the composition of the body’s fluids.

Any of these may arise from one of the following or from any combination:

  • Feverish illnesses such as flu, colds, sinusitis, cerebrospinal meningitis, conjunctivitis, or encephalitis
  • Tension, especially because of eye strain (reading in bad light or working for long periods in front of a computer monitor) or bad posture (tension of the back and the back of the neck when driving)
  • Hormonal changes for instance before menstruation
  • Digestive or metabolic disturbances (feelings of an empty stomach, hunger, or low blood sugar)
  • Changes in blood pressure (high blood pressure, falling blood pressure in connection with migraine or blood circulation disturbances in the brain)
  • Hypersensitivity in connection with the changing weather (in connection with the poor air quality with lowered oxygen content or the hot autumnal winds)
  • Emotional causes (major problems or heavy things on your mind)
  • Problems with the cervical spinal column and nervous system
  • Severe diseases such as kidney problems

With the wide range of possible causes, it is only sensible to consult a doctor if your headache lasts for over 24 hours.

There are various ways to possibly cure and treat headaches such as removing earrings, necklaces, hair bands, and hair slides. Also, you can try stroking the forehead gently with your fingers, over the head and towards the back of your neck.

 Also, you should add other activities and treatments such as physical activity in the fresh air, having a foot massage, applying cold compresses to the back of the neck and/or forehead, and taking alternate hot and cold baths or shower. You can also try stimulating and calming essential oils.

Or you can also try applying crystal therapy. Any application of crystal treatment can depend on the diagnosis caused by headaches. However, the following crystals have all proved to be helpful. Here are some of the best crystals for healing headaches.

This powerful purple stone is highly beneficial for tension headaches having their origin in eyestrain and from the tension in the spine or in the back of the neck.

To use amethyst, you will need a druse the size of a saucer and stroke the forehead over the top of the head to the back of the neck without making contact. Make 4 – 5 parallel strokes from the front hairline to the ear, repeating it 3 – 4 times on both sides. This should help make the headaches go away.
