Benjamin has been wearing an amber bead necklace for quite a while now, and he gets a lot of comments on it so I thought I would post about it. Amber necklaces are really common in Europe, Australia and New Zealand as they have some really fantastic healing properties, and I definitely think they are helping our little guy. I have noticed that he is considerably less fussy when he is teething when he has it on, than when he doesn’t – and what Mamma is not in favour of that hey!
Besides looking darn cute, here are a few pros:
Providing pain relief –
Baltic amber’s remarkable medicinal properties include analgesics that reduce or eliminate pain associated with headaches, joint stiffness, dental discomfort such as teething, etc.
Strengthening your immune system –
Succinic acid is the primary substance in natural Baltic Amber and has remarkable ability to boost the body’s immune system, to enhance natural healing, and to protect the body from infection.
Restoring Energy –
Succinate is a raw material and a major catalyst in the Krebs Cycle, one of our main sources of energy. During this cycle, our bodies metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for energy. metabolized for energy. Our own bodies naturally produce the same succinic acid to some extent. Succinic acid contains salt which is one of the key substances in cellular respiration as well as intercellular energy production. As a result, succinic acid restores both oxygen and energy to depleted cells and aids the body in returning to a normal, fully functional state.
Maintaining Wellness -
Under stress or duress, the human body’s cells require more oxygen more quickly. A lack of oxygen can result in lethargy as oxygen is vital to the intercellular creation of energy. When the body has low oxygen, it is much more at risk of illness. A healthy body is one that has a slightly alkaline blood “ph” balance which means that oxygen is being fully absorbed in all the critical areas with ease.
Breaking a cycle of (chronic) inflammation -
Whenever there is any form of chronic inflammation, disease is a good probability. With chronic cellular inflammation, the body’s immune system will automatically increase production of free radicals which can, in excess, cause inflammatory-related disease. Chronic inflammation is quite of the underlying factor in many seemingly unrelated illnesses.
I hope that these necklaces become popular in the States soon, I am such a fan and would love to see more little babies wearing them!
