The immune system, the body’s defence mechanism, protects us from bacteria, viruses, fungi, toxins and the like. It is also impacted by our emotions and thoughts, which strengthen or weaken it.

It is vital to ensure that our immune system functions as well as possible by making sure we give it the opportunity to combat threats from our external and internal environments effectively.

Balance is key.  A balanced lifestyle, healthy eating, exercise and adding stones and crystals enable us to improve our body’s immune responses and remain healthy.

Crystals have been used to restore balance and heal since the times of ancient Egypt. Records showing the use of crystals in Egypt date back 5 000 years and they were used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine practices as well.
