Wednesday, September 12, 2012 :: Baltic Amber Necklace {Review & Discount}

Hazelaid is an online retailer of natural healing remedies including Hazelwood, Baltic Amber, Magnetic, Ointment, and Soap Nut products. Established in 2008, they are well-known in the holistic, natural-preferring communities I'm part of. I've been intrigued with Baltic Amber for a couple years now and immediately thought of contacting Hazelaid. Baltic Amber's positive benefits for teething babies really resonates with my personal natural mantra, but Buddy is way past teething so this review was for me! I was thrilled to get a great response and have the opportunity to review one of their Baltic Amber necklaces for myself.

For those of your unfamiliar with Baltic Amber, basically it works by releasing succinic acid into the body when warmed by your skin. Succinic acid is naturally found in the body, and is a natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic. By adding more to your body from Baltic Amber, you can potentially see an improvement in chronic pain, inflammation, and other ailments. I have a few patches of eczema, Calcific Tendonitis in my shoulders (causing pain and horrible range of motion), and also evidence of some general inflammation that is possibly related to my infertility issues. I know that Hazelwood would be better suited for my eczema (I'll be reviewing one in the future), but mine is very inflammed to begin with and I figured the Baltic Amber's anti-inflammatory properties might have a positive effect on it.

In light of my recent efforts to improve my health as much as possible, I went with the lightest color available, the semi-polished Super Butter! Baltic Amber Necklace. The lighter, least polished Baltic Amber releases the most succinic acid. They do come in a variety of shades and even multi-color shades. I chose the 16" since I'm not a big fan of long necklaces, and you really want to keep the necklace on your skin to be most effective anyway. I love the rich, buttery yellow of this necklace!

Call me crazy, but I've had some pretty awesome results from wearing my Baltic Amber necklace almost 24/7 for about 6 weeks now. Although going gluten-free has improved my eczema slightly, I still had a bit of inflammation left that made it always look raised and puffy on the back of my neck. Since Baltic Amber works best when worn closest to the ailment, I knew I had a good shot at helping my eczema with this Baltic Amber necklace. Within one day, ONE DAY, it improved and was no longer as inflamed as usual. I've never seem it look this good!! I still have my eczema, but it's not as "angry" looking as it used to be. Also, my shoulders? I can actually raise my arms all the way up without any pain at all. I have not been able to do that in a few years since I first started having issues with my shoulders! So, the inflammation is mostly gone in my shoulders, and I only feel the calcified part rubbing if I over-extend past normal range which is, well, normal! I can finally reach up into my kitchen cupboards without pain and risking injury!

So, yes. I'm totally in love with my Baltic Amber necklace from Hazelaid. I'm thrilled. No, I'm not just making this up! This is really my honest opinion and experience. Based on my results, I absolutely believe that Baltic Amber would be beneficial for teething babies too, and I now see why it has been a trusted remedy for thousands of years around the world and seems to be gaining popularity at the moment among natural-preferring mamas. And, caring for your Baltic Amber properly can mean that it will last a lifetime so you can use it for years or among several children. Because there are knots between each bead, an unfortunate break doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to fix it, and you won't risk loosing a bunch of beads either!

Some people (and even a popular baby website recently) have spoken against Baltic Amber. It makes me so angry when people bash natural healing remedies, saying it's all a hoax and such. Those are usually the same people who don't believe eating a real food diet can improve your health either. And the same people who are paid millions in advertising by baby formula companies and other groups who are nowhere near natural (it's about money!). Just like with conventional drugs and treatments, not all will work on every person. However, odds are pretty great that you will notice a difference in your inflammatory ailments by wearing Baltic Amber from Hazelaid. I believe Baltic Amber is the real deal. It's not some "hocus-pocus", rock-worshiping type of thing. It's simply a natural remedy with healing properties that really works for a lot of people.

*Obviously I've had some pretty amazing results. This DOES NOT mean you will experience the same, if at all. As with anything, each person's body will react differently. Please do not take my experience as a way of diagnosing or treating your own ailments. Always seek the advice of a medical professional.*
