My husband has high blood pressure that is mostly controlled by medication, but occasionally it skyrockets to dangerous levels for no apparent reason. He has red stones he holds in each hand when this happens. They were recommended by a yoga teacher years ago. I don’t remember the name of the stones but the red color is supposed to help with blood and heart issues. They work for him. We can’t explain how or why but they almost always bring down his blood pressure. He carries them in his pocket any time he leaves our home.

Whether the stones themselves have restorative powers or whether believing they do is the key doesn’t matter. Either way yours worked for you and his stones work for him.

A mystery of nature or a mystery of the mind? Does it matter?
