In your opinion, which crystal is the best when it comes to detoxifying the toxins in your body such as inflammation?
First, let me say that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. ¬†Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.¬†
With that said, for your condition, I would like to start with some general crystal information on inflammation and toxins.
Inflammation is the first warning signal (MAYDAY!) put out by your immune system when a foreign object (antigen) enters the body.¬† Inflammation is the first line of defense, helping to rid the body of the germs or toxins and stopping the infection from spreading to the rest of the body.
I personally believe that¬†Bloodstone is one of the best overall detox stones out there. Other stones that can help to draw out toxins would include Amber, Larimar, and/or Malachite.
Other Detoxifying stones include:
Chlorite Included in Quartz
However, in order to really give you a more direct response and subsequent recommendations, it would help to know what type(s) of inflammation we are talking about. Crystals to help detox and reduce inflammation to the liver will be different than crystals that can help to detox and reduce inflammation to a bone or muscle.
In my research, I have found that, for instance, at the intestinal level, foods can cause inflammation of your intestinal wall through such things as allergies, bacteria, or other toxins. For intestinal inflammation due to toxins, I may recommend Amber, Carnelian, or Peridot, as these all help specifically with inflammation and detox in the intestinal area.
If the inflammation is in the throat,¬†Topaz may be recommended, as it is specific to that area and so on.
Sometimes, inflammation is caused by a germ (viral, bacterial) and is not the same as a toxin, and again, more specific recommendations would be offered in this case.
I hope these suggestions will help to get you started. A really great reference to assist you would be our "Issues and Ailments Guide". This list helps to locate not only general information on what crystals can help with inflammation and detoxifying, but also specific areas (liver, lungs, etc) for crystal recommendations as well.
Much love and healing to you.
With love and crystal blessings,
