I'm always on the search for new natural remedies. I try to avoid all drugs, unless I'm in pain or truly need an antibiotic. I've had sinus issues for the past 9 months. I've tried 6 rounds of antibiotics, nasal aspirators, Green Volcanic Clay, used humidifiers, teas... I've tried many more, but those are the ones that stick out the most. The Green Volcanic Clay worked for a while, but the infection came back. Then I heard about Hazelaid and thought I'd give them a try.
Ella has suffered from constipation for 2 years. No matter how much juice she drinks, fruit & fiber she eats, the poor child still has issues. I heard that Hazelaid could also help with this. Ella and I also have a arm skin rash, which is hereditary, that we've tried various scrubs to get rid of and nothing has helped. Let me tell you about Hazelaid before I get into our results.
Hazelaid is a line of hazelwood and amber jewelry with natural, organic healing properties. The hazelwood, from the hazelnut tree, has the unique property to absorb excess acid produced in our bodies when it is in contact with our skin. The Baltic Amber, a natural resin, releases its healing oils when it warms from contact with the skin. These oils contain succinic acid which are easily absorbed into the skin and then to the bloodstream. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways.
Hazelwood was first used by the Native Americans to help their children with teething pain. If you suffer from: Arthritis, Sinus Problems, Osteoporosis, Acid reflux, Heart burn, Ulcers, Constipation, Acne, Cold sores, Dental Cavities, Eczema, Headaches and Migraines.. it is highly probable that you are suffering from an acidity imbalance. The hazelwood products could prove beneficial to your ailments.
Baltic Amber has been used in Europe as "teething jewelry" for hundreds of years. Natural amber beaded necklaces are a completely non-invasive remedy for rashes, upset tummies, earaches, fevers and colds. Baltic amber is a natural analgesic that will help calm your child and is recognized by allopathic medicine specialists as antispasmodic and anti-fever. Many adults report improvement of arthritis discomfort and carpal tunnel pain in their hands when wearing amber jewelry.
I had a hard time picking which necklaces I wanted for the both of us since our symptoms fell into both categories. Severine, the owner, was amazing to work with while trying to figure out what was best for our family. She told me the hazelwood would be the best for Ella and she told me I should go with the amber. I was torn because I was wondering if my long lasting sinus infection was from acidity and that's why I wasn't getting better, so I decided on the combo. The inside of the hazelwood bead will start to turn black when it absorbs enough acid from your body, so you can tell if the necklace needs to be replaced. Well, after wearing my combo hazelwood and amber necklace for a month, my sinus problems still remain. My hazelwood hasn't changed colors, so I'm thinking this isn't acid related. See, that's what I get for not listening to Severine! I'm hopefully going to order the Amber necklace soon! But my arm rash is drying out and going away. (note: these are just MY results... every body is different!) Am I disappointed? No way! This necklace is beautiful and only $20.95. So you're paying what you would for any necklace, but with the chance of healing your ailments.
Ella got the children's hazelwood necklace and it is adorable. She has loved wearing it and doesn't want to take it off. The hazelwood is drying out her arm rash as well and the bumps are disappearing. As for the constipation- she's now going 3-4 times a week as opposed to twice a week. She's still wearing her necklace in hopes it will continue to help. Since we haven't seen results as obvious as some, please go and read the testimonials for people these have truly worked for! Everyone is different and there is no way to tell if you are suffering from an acidity balance.
