The power of the natural stones.
The Power of Natural Stones Stone Therapy, or litho therapy, is considered by some to be a superstition of the ages. However, thanks to the serious and rigorous work of a Doctor of Science Philosophy, Robert Blanchard, litho therapy has just gained in scientific explanations.As for plants, We know empirically that stones have effects on humans. But most of the traditional knowledge about the healing power of stones is now buried, almost impossible to find. This is why the modern practice of litho therapy must be based on a well-founded and scientific knowledge to be perceived as suitable for a care approach.Between geology and mineralogy, alchemy, oligotherapy and energy medicine, between the search for the philosopher’s stone and ancient practices dating from the caveman, the lithotherapist seems to be a profession of scholar.
The first thing to know is that a serious lithotherapist does not do magic, he works according to the physical and chemical properties of the stones, their frequencies and their «vibratory» qualities as well as their implications. This approach requires solid historical, cultural and diverse knowledge such as chromotherapy, energy medicine, and many other knowledge complementary to Western medicine.
Stones are not inert bodies. Despite their appearance of molecular stability and immutability, stones are like all bodies in the universe: they are characterized by physical constants such as mass, heat, radioactivity, electromagnetism…
Like all elements of nature, they are also energy plants made of atoms and electrons. And it is through electrons that they exchange ions with neighbouring bodies, and in this case we are neighbors. All the stones thus evolve constantly by manifesting oxidations, reductions, transformations in other bodies… The laws of these exchanges are described by physical chemistry. The combinations of chemical elements contained in stones are as varied as that there are different stones.
The scientists showed that each stone interacts with the outside by ionic, thermal, electromagnetic or even radioactive exchanges depending on the greater or lesser presence of aluminium, lithium, iodine, bromine, of silica, nitrate, potassium, chemical elements that make up the picture of chemist Mendeleev.
All the elements of a chemical composition have their wave function and it is the latter which transports the energy of the elements. That is how the stones will exchange the information they contain with us. For this they take the path of the ion channels.
According to Michel Lazdunski: Ion channels are membrane pores that control the passage of electrical charges between the exterior and interior of the cell. They thus react to the electrical activity on which many functions of the organism are based. Ion channels open and close cell pores to change the internal environment.”
Historically, a brief look back is therefore necessary to see more clearly in this area. We find the trace of the first mineral pharmacopoeia on Sumerian tablets, a list of therapeutic indications of a hundred minerals including alum, sulphur, gypsum… But it is in Egypt that we find the most traces of it. Papyrus dating from 1,600 to 1,500 BC indicate the use of a number of mineral drugs: limestone, calcium carbonate (antiacid), magnesia (laxative), copper salts (antiseptics and astringents), etc.
