As we age, health issues become more prevalent. This includes problems with chronic pain and conditions such as arthritis. Aging individuals are constantly searching for new ways to cope with medical conditions and ailments with some discovering the healing power of crystals. 

 

Today, there is more information on crystals than ever before, from the different types to the impact that they could have on our health and wellbeing. There are crystals for the home, children and even pets. You may even see crystals in places of business in the hope that they will improve the wellbeing for all people. 

 

People have found that crystals can help with a variety of physical conditions. Others use crystals for emotional or physical benefits, and still others believe that the energy they provide offers benefits to the soul. 

 

But could crystals be the right choice for seniors?

 

What Do We Mean Be Seniors?

 

‘Senior’ is a term commonly associated with the eldetly. However, in this instance a senior could be anyone over the age of forty. It’s at this stage that medical conditions which will cause an impact later in life begin to develop. As such, anyone over the age of forty could find fantastic benefits from using the right crystals to promote positive energy forces. 

 

What Crystals Are Available?

 

There is a massive list of crystals available that could help seniors suffering from different conditions. For instance, Blue Calcite and Emeralds are believed to help with the general process of aging that causes emotional and mental symptoms. 

 

Alternatively, Alexandrite and Amber may have a positive impact on those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. 

 

Apache Tears and Aqua Aura could also be beneficial for those suffering from depression. This is a common condition in the senior population, particularly for those with hearing difficulties. 

 

How Do Healing Crystals Help Seniors?

 

Research is constantly exploring the potentially profound benefits of crystals for seniors. However, holding a crystal, placing one on your body or adding them to your home environment can promote emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Crystals are able to achieve this by interacting with the energy field of your body or Chakra. Many people have reported improvements in physical and mental conditions after introducing certain crystals into their daily life. 

 

As such, crystals could be an option worth exploring for both seniors and their caretakers.   

 

What To Consider? 

 

If you are exploring crystals to help with issues of aging, then there are various factors to consider. You need to think about where you are placing your crystal in the home. Ideally, you should select a spot that is a mindful place. Alternatively, you can carry them or wear them on your body in the form of a bracelet or necklace. In doing so, you can ensure that the crystal is in direct contact with your energy field. 

 

Ultimately, crystals are part of the study of nature. They may impact our health and our energy to provide fantastic and extraordinary benefits for senior individuals who incorporate them into their daily lifestyle, including for pain relief.

About You Are Not Alone

About Adrian Allotey, Owner, Certified End-of-Life Doula I am currently living my best life by responding to a calling on my life; service to elders and their loved ones. My life’s calling came as a result of being present in my 106 year old, loving grandmother’s journey until her last breath. Although I loved her dearly, I often felt troubled that I couldn’t be there for her like I wanted. Life got in the way; being a wife and mother and having a successful career. She was pretty healthy, but she lacked companionship. I knew there were things that could improve the quality of her life such as long talks, sharing stories, cooked meals, and transportation to the doctors, stores and church. I did my best, but there simply wasn’t enough time in the day to show up like I felt she deserved. Her passing gave my life’s purpose clear; service to elders and their loved ones. I made it my life’s mission to promote the final years as a sacred, beautiful, honorable stage of life. I became a hospice volunteer and a certified end-of-life doula, a person who assists in the dying process, much like a birth doula does with the birthing process. Working with elderly patients has been life affirming so much so that I left a career of 20+ years. Along with my team, we serve as non-medical elderly companions who specialize in physical, emotional and spiritual care. We meet our clients on their terms, see them as whole, and build relationships with them and their loved ones. Our self-care regimen, personal growth and intuition allow us to mindfully hold space and provide comfort for elderly people and their family in a non-judgmental, loving manner. Our motto “heart to heart" is evident in the holistic elder companionship we provide. Holding this space decreases the stress and fears family members face when looking for care for their loved ones; whether they are in need of respite relief, work long hours or live long distance. We can help. Through extensive end-of-life doula training, we are able to provide support, education, and suggestions for comfort. We have a toolkit of available resources to ease the anxious person and their family members including virtual “elder cams,” essential oils, crystals, reiki, mindfulness practices, etc. We are often referred to as “angels”, “Godsends”, “extraordinary”, “beyond belief” and words of the like. Contact us TODAY to see how we can be of assistance to you TOMORROW and we promise to assist in enhancing the life of your loved elder.
