Finally, scientists managed to prove not only that Acupuncture works but also how it works! They just identified a biological molecule, called adenosine, which has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It also has an impact on the heart and in regulating sleep. Adenosine seems to become active in the areas that are treated with acupuncture. The needles increase the levels of adenosine 24-fold during and after an acupuncture session.
This is very exciting news, indeed. I hope that it will give incentive to more scientists to undertake similar work. Hopefully, it will also provide incentive to governments around the world to provide funds for further research. We should not let the pharmaceutical companies have sole control of our well being.
And, since crystal healing is very similar to acupuncture (they both work at an energetic level and they use the same points and meridian), it would be an excellent point of departure to explore how adenosine increases during crystal therapy.
