For thousands of years, Baltic Amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments. Long ago it was considered one of the leading medicines of its time. Baltic Amber is the most esteemed amber in the world, and the healing qualities of Baltic Amber make it unlike any other type of amber found in the world. Our Baltic Amber jewelry is also an unique piece of history since Baltic Amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin.
Baltic Amber is made up of 3-8% succinic acid. This is some of the highest concentrations of succinic acid found in nature, which is a big part of what makes it so special. Succinic acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and its presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways.When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skins warmth helps the amber release trace amounts of succinic acid which are then absorbed into the skin. While wearing a piece or two of baltic amber jewelry may not cure all that may ail you, it has been a proven benefit to many!
How can baltic amber help us?
- Pain Relief - Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc.
- Strengthens the body's immune system- In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.
- Restoring Energy - The human body naturally produces succinic acid. The salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state. Succinate is a raw material and a catalyst in the Krebs Cycle which is one of our main sources of energy. During the Krebs Cycle carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are metabolized for energy.
- To help break a cycle of (chronic) inflammation - Where chronic inflammation is present, disease lurks. When the bodys cells are chronically inflamed the human bodys immune system response is to increase production of free radicals. Chronic overproduction of free radicals results in inflammatory-related disease. Chronic inflammation is a common denominator of many seemingly unrelated diseases.
Can my child "chew" on the amber necklace?
No! Our baltic amber necklaces are made for wearing and NOT for chewing or placing in the mouth.
Amber necklaces are NOT a toy, and these necklaces contain SMALL PARTS. The jewelry should be removed whenever the child is sleeping or unattended by an adult. Parents should supervise their children at all times while the necklace is being worn. Although the necklace is knotted in between each bead, amber beads are not a stone and can crack and break under too much pressure.
The pain reducing effects of amber are experienced by skin contact. We recommend tucking the necklace under your child's clothing so that they become unaware that they are wearing it.
