Fibromyalgia is a chronic (long-lasting) disorder that causes pain and tenderness throughout the body, as well as fatigue and trouble sleeping. Scientists do not fully understand what causes it, but people with the disorder have a heightened sensitivity to pain.
There is no cure for fibromyalgia, but doctors and other health care providers can help manage and treat the symptoms. Treatment typically involves a combination of exercise or other movement therapies, psychological and behavioural therapy, and medications.
I met the lovely Kirsty @spooniekirsty on Instagram back in 2021. I had never heard of Fibromyalgia and followed Kirsty along with her journey.
Since then, my son has been diagnosed with possible ME/CFS and we suspect, Fibro too. It is the most difficult thing to watch a loved one go through.
As part of what I do with Breathe, I decided to investigate which healing stones could help with pain. Calming the nervous system often helps with pain.
The single best way to calm the nervous system is to breathe…
And so…. The Breathe 10 Breaths Spoonie Kirsty, Fibromyalgia Bracelet was conceptualised.
It consists of mostly anxiety reducing semi-precious stones that can help with pain, acceptance and mental health and they include:
Smoky Quartz which helps to ground ourselves while transmitting all negative3 energies in our body into positive energy. Using this crystal can make us heal and become more optimistic.
Amethyst helps us overcome fatigue and helps to get rid of our emotional blockages. People who struggle with Fibromyalgia usually experience a lot of stress, making Amethyst one of their best allies to find peace during the healing process.
Citrine eases depressive moods and releases hidden resentment and anger. It gives us a more positive outlook on out challenges and allows us to find the bright side of all our circumstances.
Rose Quartz, the stone of love. This crystal makes us more empathetic to oneself and clears out resentment, anger, rage, and other low-frequency emotions that make fibromyalgia more difficult to deal with. It helps us love ourselves a little more, to be a little less tough on ourselves.
Carnelian has been shown to combat depression, negativity and a lack of motivation. It also stimulates the muscles and promotes proper circulation and of oxygen in our bodies.
Aquamarine is a calming crystal that also works as an anti-inflammatory, easing the pain of people struggling with Fibromyalgia or CFS. It can enhance our inner peace and calm us when embarking on a healing journey\
Hematite is known as a reliable detox stone. Hematite is a great all round gem when it comes to clearing out the body of anything unwanted. Along with flushing out toxins, this stone can help improve circulation and bring strength and vitality back to those who feel tired and washed out.
Features: The bracelets are strung on bracelet wire and feature a clasp, extender chain and little ‘pause and breathe’ charm. These findings are platinum coated, so really quite a strong coating. Over time they may tarnish.
What you will receive: Bracelets will be sent in a hand stamped organic cotton bag, together with a card detailing stone properties, how to use the bracelet and with care instructions. Included will be a Breathe origami heart, a mini chocolate, a herbal tea.
This makes a GREAT CARING GIFT!!!!
