What would you recommend for my son who has ADHD, anxiety, and sleep problems?
Question: I found some of your information on Pinterest and have been learning a little about about crystals. I am about 2 weeks into this journey. My 10 year old son has ADHD and a lot of Anxiety. He is medicated and still has a lot of issues. I have been using essential oils with him and they help but sometimes we need more. Today he was throwing a giant fit about homework and I told him to find his worry stone (Snowflake Obsidian) he grabbed it and started to become calmer and I also put some oils on him. Within moments he was able to finish the homework with no further issues.
So I have a couple questions if you don't mind helping me.
1. Is there a website or something you could suggest for help to learn more?
2. What other stones would be good for him to use? for ADHD, anxiety and for sleeping are the main issues.
3. is it ok to use multiple stones at the same time?
4. Also he wants a bracelet to wear the stones on/in and I wondered if there is something say fabric or leather between his skin and the stone will it still be as effective or does the stone need to be directly on the skin?
wow sorry that ended up being more than my original intention. Any little bit of information you can send my way would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
Answer: I have already created a couple of pages that offer crystal tips to help with these issues for your son. Yes, it is ok to work with multiple stones, although if you can I'd keep it to 3-5 crystals. You can find my crystal suggestions for ADHD, anxiety, and sleep (listed as insomnia) in the Prescriptions section of my website.
You will find quiet a few crystals overlap. Sodalite would be a good one for him to assist with the ADHD, insomnia, and mind chatter. Take a peek at the link above to find more crystals so he can pick his perfect ones.
Crystals work at their best when they can touch the skin, especially if they are small. However, as long as he has it near him in his energy field they will work perfectly.
