Subject: Crystals to Help with Excessively Sweaty Hands
Date: 07/04/10
From: Christian
To: Healing Crystals

Hello everybody,

First of all, I'd like to thank you for all the interesting and amazing information I found on your web site! I believe that crystals can help us, and that's why I need to ask to if it's possible to find one (or more than one) that can eliminate or diminish my problem with sweaty hands. I can remember from the age of five that I already had this problem, and now I'm 39 and it's almost never stopped (especially during summer times)!

For me it's a hard problem to deal with because it causes difficulties in normal relationships. It also would be interesting to know from which chakra disorder my problem depends (for example excessive adrenals answer or something). Please consider that it can happen when I think I'm completely calm and relaxed too, but obviously It gets harder when worried.

Somebody says that it can be a way to keep others away from us, but I'm not very convinced of that. If anybody of you could help me I'd be very grateful!

All the best, Ciao.






Good Morning Christian,

I must share the standard disclaimer 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, I did a little research and found out some information that may be useful to you.

What you are describing sounds very similar to a medical condition called Palmar Hyperhidrosis. Palmar Hyperhidrosis is a scientific term that means extreme sweating of the hands. My first question to you is, have you been to a medical professional? You see, there are two levels of
hyperhidrosis. I think this is the first thing that needs to be medically determined.

1. Primary hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands in the nervous system
2. Secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by an underlying condition. This underlying condition could be a disease like diabetes, or a thyroid problem. In order to treat secondary hyperhidrosis, you’ll need to treat the underlying condition directly.

In my research, I found a number of suggestions that can possibly reduce the sweating. For instance, sweating occurs when the body temperature rises. It is suggested to drink more water in order to keep the body temperature cooler so there will be less sweating.

Another suggestion was to use corn starch or antiperspirant on the hands to help absorb or block the excessive sweat. There is limited success reported.

While there are seven chakras that are most commonly talked about, we actually have literally hundreds of chakras throughout our bodies. And, yup, we have them in our hands as well — they are called "Minor Chakras". One of the best books I can recommend to study more on the hand and other chakras would be Hand's of Light by Barbara Ann Brennan. She is one of the foremost authorities on chakras and energy.

In your case, until it is determined if your issue is primary or secondary Palmar Hyperhidrosis, we really will not know if the hand or other chakras are to be considered. We really need to get a handle on the cause first and foremost. Here is a website that may be helpful to explain more about your condition:

As for crystals, I would like to recommend the following for two reasons :) First, I read somewhere that the minor chakras in the hand corresponded with the color Pink. I also read in my research that sweating of the palms could be traced to the sympathetic ganglia which are located in the upper part of the chest cavity. This is where the Heart Chakra is located, and while associated with the color green, it is also associated with the color pink. I know this sounds like over simplistic logic, but I truly do feel we are being led to this for a reason :)

I would recommend the following crystals for your consideration:

Pink Tourmaline
(Tourmaline has the physical property of being pyroelectric, meaning that it can develop opposite charges at opposite ends of the crystal, when heated or cooled, creating a kind of static-electricity effect. An interesting suggestion for those who have hyperhidrosis is a small electric type of charge applied to the hand. Pink Tourmaline would be a natural charge.)




Rose Quartz

I hope this information will be helpful. Blessings to you as you work to relieve this condition.

With love and crystal blessings,
