Hi

Does any one on here know much about Quartz crystals? I was talking to a friend of mine a few weeks back and he was talking about how they can heal you, as they help ballance your chakras (do they even exist) etc.

I dont know if this is true, I have an open mind about this kind of thing.

There is no scientific evidence that crystals are conduits of magical energies useful for healing ,

as for chakras,

The alleged energy of the chakras is not scientifically measurable, though some have tried to connect the chakras with physical organs such as the pineal gland and the thymus.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Den.

He also mentioned about how they do something with watches to tell the time, he said that it does a similar sort of thing with the chakras.

Hi there,

As Den said there is no proper evidence to back these medical claims up.

You'll probably often here people saying that alternative therapies work. Again, the problem is our good old friend "anecdotal evidence". There could be a myriad of reasons why someone thought that there therapy worked. Ranging from anything to a placebo, or just the illness passes away naturally (ie - the body heals itself).

Cheers,

Rob.

Do you not think that there is something out there, that Science has not quite been able to pick up on yet?

Regarding the crystals? I don't think so to be honest...

One thing that gets me wondering about this so called "healing energy". Let us say there is some kind of mystical energy that exists for a moment, and that people or crystals can actually project it.

How could one even control or focus it? How much energy should be given to each person? What type of energy is it?? How could this energy even heal the body?? Why would it heal the body?? - it's just energy!

Even if this "energy" existed, none of these spiritual healers would really know how to test it scientifically (yet alone proof it actually exists). We know how much medication is given to the human body in order to maximize its effect. Too much or too little could be detrimental. How do we know this? through medical trials and years of research.

Oh, I forgot to say... there IS NO PROOF that this type of ENERGY even exists. I was just having a wee thought experiment to myself. Rolling Eyes
