One of the most common requests by optimal-wellness seekers is for ways to enhance brain function and to reduce the risks of cognitive decline and nervous system dysfunction that are often associated with aging.
There is no doubt that having an optimally functioning mind and healthy brain is at the top of the list for quality of life. So much depends on it. At the upcoming Longevity Retreat, Dr. Sara Hazel will explore and provide multiple avenues for brain support, including new gemstone therapies and a variety of other natural healing methods.
At the same time, and in harmony with these healing principles, Gemisphere has released the Star Aqua and Earth Aqua combination necklaces. These Aquamarine combinations use gemstone-energy formulas that encourage subtle-body healing to rejuvenate the central nervous system. Both necklaces can help support optimal mental functioning, but Star Aqua has the most direct effect on the central nervous system.

SO WHAT PUTS OUR BRAINS AT RISK and underlies EVERYTHING FROM “BRAIN FOG” TO STROKE AND DEMENTIA?
Many factors that jeopardize mental function have been identified. They include the following threats:
- Chronic stress
- Environmental toxins
- Too much sugar and simple carbohydrates in the diet
- Lack of physical exercise
- Lack of mental exercise
- Injury from sports, falls, and motor vehicle accidents, and other blows to the head
- Lack of proper nutrition
- Lack of proper blood and lymph circulation
- Generalized inflammation in the body
One of the newest areas of research in brain health is the effect that many kinds of chemical and electromagnetic pollution may be having on the brains of millions of people.
The role of gemstone energy medicine in IMPROVING brain health
Brain function is greatly dependent on the circulation of healthy blood and lymph into and out of the brain. Our blood and lymph may contain many things that could have a negative impact on our health. Two examples are high levels of sugar or trans fats. Although we have some control over those things, many other inflammatory chemicals are harder to identify and control. For our brain’s sake, we want to reduce the presence of toxins and inflammatory factors across the board. Health practitioners that focus on careful and effective protocols may use nutrition, sauna and hydrotherapies, lifestyle changes, chelation, and eliminative organ support. (Note that it is safest to have trained medical practitioners manage major detoxification strategies).
Gemstone therapy can play an essential supporting role in this arsenal of healing methods. The energetic support that gemstones offer can speed and ease the process of healing. Because of chronic stress and lowered vitality, many people struggle under the weight of our modern toxic burden. The combination of White Beryl, Blue Sapphire, and Aquamarine in Gemisphere’s Star Aqua necklace strengthens the vital force and contributes to purification in the subtle bodies and physical tissue. When used properly, this and many other gemstones and gem combinations can be used to support brain and nervous system health.
Longevity Retreat lead Dr. Hazel has spent two decades managing the natural healing of thousands of patients. She has found that correctly chosen and applied therapeutic gemstones help reclaim the vitality of many people who struggle to respond to other methods.
Dr. Hazel will be bringing these gemstone techniques to the retreat experience.
THE GEMSTONE THERAPIES TAUGHT AT THE longevity RETREAT WILL COMBINE SINGLE-GEM PLACEMENTS IN SPECIFIC FORMULAs SIMILAR TO THOSE IN THE STAR aqua AND EARTH AQUA NECKLACES.
In the upcoming retreat, gem therapies will be enriched by the venue’s natural surroundings and mineral waters. While science has been engaged in studying the effect of nutrition on the brain for many decades, it turns out that our brains may also need greater exposure to nature itself. More and more studies show that time in nature can improve cognitive performance and mood for many people. Time in nature improves the mental development of children as well as the functioning of people with Alzheimer’s.
One of the many reasons we chose the Carson Hot Springs Resort is the limited amount of electromagnetic pollution present at the venue. While we can never escape ALL electromagnetic and environmental pollution under normal circumstances, we can limit our exposures and increase our protective and healing methods to counteract what we do experience. Carlson Hot Springs is an ideal environment to do so.
At the retreat, among the many ways we’ll tap the healing powers of nature, we will apply earthstones like the Agate in Earth Aqua to create greater attunement with the natural world.
Many environmental medicine doctors and other health practitioners have noted the importance of a healthy lymphatic system on mental function. (Read about a recent discovery here.) Supporting the lymph’s ability to remove metabolic wastes and inflammatory chemicals may have a large impact on mental function. The Star Aqua necklace has many benefits, but a central one is to support health strategies that improve the central nervous system through purification of the lymph and cerebral spinal fluid. Alternating Star Aqua with Carnelian and Sodalight provides a full spectrum of mental cleansing support. Carnelian encourages the upliftment of mood and vitality while supporting the cells to release wastes into the lymphatic system. Sodalight energetically absorbs the energies that can so easily fog the mind with negative or chaotic vibrational patterns. The addition of a Blue Sapphire necklace will enhance the mind and the intellect.
In addition, the Longevity Retreat will present techniques using White Beryl and Aquamarine. These will be combined with lymphatic massage and single-gem placements on points of the body for longevity, brain health, and improved facial appearance. We will also introduce new gemstone tools for mental cleansing, including Golden Beryl. Single Golden Beryl gems will be combined with White Beryl, Indigo, Lapis Lazuli, and Blue Sapphire for energetic purification of the mental subtle body.
We hope to see you there.
