When crystals are being sold for generic unspecific things like “This crystal will remove your negative energy” it’s probably fine, but when it’s offered for actual mental illnesses that require real therapy and medicine you can fuck off.
lmao i like how it includes instructions for if your kid is like “im not carrying this stupid rock”
As someone with a mental disorder, I can say in response to the above comments that although the stones OBVIOUSLY DON’T cure disorders, they CAN work in tandem with therapy and medicine as a kind of reassurance. Belief is a powerful medicine and if a person believes in the power of the crystals, they can be used as a sort of way to “take the edge off” on a bad day, because even medicine and therapy don’t work 100% of the time. I often keep a bit of amethyst in my pocket, and play with it in my hands when I’m going through a thing.
