|Our Baltic amber jewelry is a unique piece of history. The amber beads are fossils from an ancient forest which existed 40 million years ago or more.
Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin.
For centuries, Baltic amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments and discomforts. 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.
It is said that when Baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth draws trace amounts of healing oils out of the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin.
Baltic amber contains 3-8% succinic acid which is some of the highest concentrations found in nature, and this is 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.
Baltic amber is worn by our customers for a number of health and wellness benefits. It contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of the discomfort and symptoms associated with: dental issues (such as the emergence of new teeth, orthodontic brace adjustments, TMJ), growing pains, allergies, sensory disorders associated with autism, headaches and migraines, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and shoulder discomfort, tendonitis, menstrual cramping, restless leg syndrome, back and knee discomfort, joint pain from chemotherapy, and many more. In order to be effective Baltic
amber must usually be close to the site of the discomfort. For example, a
necklace would not necessarily/likely be effective for growing pains in the
legs. For this we would recommend an ankle bracelet.
How can Baltic amber help us?
In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.
- Strengthens the body's immune system
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.
When the human body reacts to stress, the body's cells begin to use oxygen more quickly. Oxygen plays a central role in the intercellular creation of energy and a lack of oxygen can result in feeling lethargic.
Oxygen is alkaline-forming in the blood and maintaining a slightly alkaline blood pH helps keep us healthy. Whenever the body functions in a state of low oxygen, it is much more susceptible to illness.
- To help break a cycle of (chronic) inflammation
Where chronic inflammation is present, disease lurks.
When the body's cells are chronically inflamed the 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. What color/style do we recommend?
