According to Google Trends data, searching ‘crystals for fertility’ was up 180 percent in the past 12 months
Searching ‘fertility crystals’ was also up 110 percent, which suggests people are looking for more alternative ways to help them conceive.
Before we tell you more, we (the IVF babble team) must say that we love crystals and we don’t want to dismiss their powers or the incredible feeling they can offer, but for us, there was no way a crystal was ever going to get us pregnant. We needed, amongst many other things, lots of IVF and ICSI amongst us. However, we think everyone reading this, will understand the need to do anything you can to enhance your chances of getting pregnant – to make you feel better emotionally, and to feel like you are doing everything you can.
Our thoughts are mirrored by the doctors at IVF Spain who gave us this quote:
“We believe in the impact of the state of our patient’s mental well-being on their fertility treatment, and so although we do not believe a crystal alone will overcome fertility issues, if it helps our patients to feel comforted, calm and less stressed then that’s great”.
This need to feel more in control is why there is a growing market that taps into alternative methods, such as acupuncture and now it seems crystals. (Take a look at Glamour magazine that has featured a great report on the different fertility crystals and how they might help you.)
So what are crystals used for?
Spiritual healer and founder of the Rebel Alchemy, Julie Higgins, told the monthly women’s magazine that a crystal healer works to stimulate the energy and restore balance to mind and body.
She said. “When someone has fertility issues, it can mean they have an imbalance or blockage in the Sacral Chakra.
“The Sacral Chakra is a woman’s powerhouse controlling reproduction, work, career, finances, creativity, self-esteem, sexuality, relationships, and emotions.”
She said using crystals to help with fertility can be a long journey as they must be cleansed and programmed before a patient can start to work with them.
“Using crystals for healing is a long journey as you have the wear them constantly on your body,” she says.
