Hi, I am inquiring what healing gemstones/ crystals would be good for the following situations:
1. My husband has congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, recovering drug addict and anxiety. He is a Libra.
2. I have chronic sinus/cluster/migraine type headaches ,situational depression and Barretts esophogitis I am a Capricorn.
3. As an added note, we were first married 3/11/77, divorced in 1980 and are remarrying next month. We consider ourselves spiritually married and this is just a formality. We have healed our past.
Thank you so much.
Welcome to our shop and thank you for your questions. It looks like I have my work cut out for me here, so let's get right to it. I will deal with each situation separately, so you can easily see which stones go with which issue. In the interest of time and brevity, I will list two stones per issue, making it easier for you to make your choices.
