Tourmaline is of important component in The Harmonic Shield patch. What is Tourmaline ?
Tourmaline gemstone is a semi-precious mineral stone well known for its ability to aid detoxification processes in the human body. It’s one of just a handful of minerals that are both piezoelectric and pyroelectric : when put under high pressure or when dramatically heated or cooled, tourmaline creates an electrical charge that emits both infrared waves and negative ions. These characteristics are key to its capacity to promote detoxification ¹
The word tourmaline takes its origins from the Singhalese phrase "tura mali," meaning "stone mixed with vibrant colors." From magenta to teal-blue, meadow-green to vibrant yellow, and even black, this powerful healing stone is known to change its color in different kinds of light. It’s said there are no two tourmalines with the exact same color, and historically it’s been revered as a "magic" stone, able to protect whoever wears it
Scientifically, it’s known that tourmaline aids the body's detoxification process in a range of ways ¹
Health Benefits of Tourmaline Gemstone
Research indicates chronic disease is often related to high levels of toxic substances in the body. As a catalyst for reducing toxin levels, tourmaline can contribute to improvements in toxin-related health issues. It’s also known to help relieve stress, increase mental alertness, improve circulation and strengthen the immune system. Tourmaline has detoxifying, cleansing effects on the nervous system and other organs and tissues of the body. Preliminary research using tourmaline gemstone on animals and plants has also found it to have activating effects on animal and plant metabolism
Why are we interested in a mineral that can emit Far Infrared Rays and Negative Ions ?
Far-infrared rays are invisible waves of energy that penetrate all layers of the body, including the innermost regions of tissues, muscles and bone. FIR and negative ions gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detoxify the body. They increase blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry our blood, promoting its oxygenating and regenerative effects on all major organs of the body. This this in turn promotes improved functioning - including their ability to dissolve and process toxins
Negative ions are also important in determining our moods. Michael Terman, PhD, of Columbia University in New York, has researched negative ions and reports that "The action of the pounding surf creates negative air ions. We also see this immediately after spring thunderstorms, when people report lightened moods.² Columbia University studies on depression in winter have shown that depression can be relieved as much through negative ion generators as it can through the use of antidepressants - without some of their negative side effects. These ions increase oxygen flow to the brain, increasing awareness and mental energy ³
Many professional athletes have reported great performance improvements after using therapeutic gemstones such as tourmaline. Swedish Olympic world-swimming champion, Glen Christiansen, was reported as having stated that, "The green tourmaline necklace gives me a lot of strength, and allows me to recover faster from hard workouts." "Curiously enough," she also added, "it gives me more sexual interest and power." This gem has been reported to boost sexual energy in men, as it increases blood flow and circulation in the body. The gemstone is also reported as helping to ease emotions, increasing vitality and vigor in both men and women 4
How Is Tourmaline Gemstone Good For You ?
The far infrared rays that Tourmaline emits create the same electrical resonance in the body as is normally found in water. This has a very soothing effect on the nerves. As three quarters of the human body is composed of water, this resonance creates an increased vitality in living tissues, enhancing energy levels and stimulating metabolism
