First a little history lesson: Baltic Amber is fossilized tree resin which has been revered since about 9500 BC for its beauty and healing properties. Amber was a traditional remedy for teething in Europe as recently as the 1900's, where it was believed to have had analgesic and calming properties. More recently, a new generation of moms has discovered amber. Amber teething necklaces are enjoying a comeback, and just about anywhere you go, you're bound to see someone (big or small) wearing amber.
|Baltic Amber for back pain.|
Inspired by Finn asked me to review one of their necklaces. It's really a thing of beauty, and I put it on as soon as I got it. I was kind of expecting some magical thunderclap that would suddenly heal all of my various ailments, but, of course that is just silly. After a couple of days, though, when I went to put
it back on after a shower (you shouldn't bathe in your amber), it was missing. After searching for a while, I gave up and went to bed. I woke up the next morning with a very unpleasant surprise: a migraine!
Now I do suffer from migraines, but I never wake up with them. And this was a bad one. I took ibuprofen, had coffee (that's my usual remedy) and went about my morning, getting ready for work. As I was feeding the cats,
I laughed out loud. The necklace was curled up next to the cats' dish! One of my kitties tried to steal it!(Or was it sabotage?) I put it back on and before long, my headache was gone. I know - I know...it was probably
the meds and caffeine, but still. What's even more awesome is I haven't had a migraine since. And I'm not entirely sure, but I think it has helped with some chronic shoulder pain I've been having.
