THE GOLDEN HEALTH SERIES | Part 6: Gold Is More Than Just A Pretty Accessory
Let’s go over the basics first.
Gold is a chemical element with the symbol Au (from Latin: aurum) and atomic number 79. In its purest form, it is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, dense, soft, malleable metal. The timeless beauty and classy appearance of gold continue to make it one of the most popular metals for making jewelry.
However, many different cultures have long believed in the healing power of certain metals – gold included. In fact, there are several good reasons to wear gold jewelry. Throughout history Gold has been used for its healing properties for centuries in various cultures. The metal is thought to have the ability to regulate body temperature and circulation, as well as improve joint function and reduce inflammation. Wearing gold jewelry is said to provide relief from arthritis pain, skin conditions like eczema, and even migraines. Additionally, it’s believed that gold can help regulate hormones, so it’s often worn by women during menopause or during pregnancy. Some even consider gold a natural antidepressant because of its ability to boost mood and energy levels.
What does science say?
Gold has been used in traditional medicine for centuries and there is now scientific evidence to support some of these practices. Studies have shown that wearing gold can improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote cell regeneration. Gold is also known to be hypoallergenic and non-toxic, making it a safe alternative to other metals. Some research also suggests that golden jewelry may be able to help relieve anxiety and depression.
