For thousands of years, humans in tune with the crystal kingdom have used Amber as a treatment for pain. The most common use is to reduce teething pain in babies and toddlers. At this point, there is no scientific evidence that amber reduces pain yet there is a theory that explains how amber works.
Baltic Amber contains succinic acid, a pain-relieving substance. When Amber comes in contact with human skin, the heat causes succinic acid to be released. It is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. This process stimulates the thyroid gland to increase drooling and reducing inflammation in the ears, throat, stomach and respiratory system.
Succinic acid derives its name from Latin succinum, meaning amber. Succinic acid is naturally found in the human body. It is found in living organisms’ mitochondria. Succinic acid is an integral part of Cellular Metabolism and the all-important Krebs Cycle. The Krebs cycle occurs in the matrix of the mitochondria and generates a pool of chemical energy (ATP, NADH, and FADH2). Without Succinic acid living organisms would not be able to function properly or have the energy to thrive.
There are are some who say succinic acid cannot be released from Amber via body temperature. But there are many variables that have not been included in these “studies” that can contribute to the findings such as sun exposure, a persons natural skin oil, or precious metal like gold surrounding the amber (as traditionally worn in ancient times).
Although this has not been proven there are many theories for those with the skills and drive to prove this and more.
Amber is metaphysically known to bring solar warmth into the body. It increases prana or chi present in the chakras & meridian pathways. Amber is a natural botanical resin that has fossilized over time. It is said and for told by many throughout the ages (Paleolithic, Phoenician, Greek, Roman, European, Assyrian and Egyptian) wearing or holding Amber speeds up the recovery from physical dis-ease or ill-ness. Emotionally Amber releases deep seeded fears and gives one the courage to overcome life's challenges.
