TOURMALINE is a semi-precious mineral stone well known for its incredible ability to aid in the detoxification process of the human body. It is one of only a handful of minerals that, when heated, can emit negative ions and far-infrared rays. Negative Ions play a key role in helping to detoxify and enhance the body’s overall well-being and have long been associated with improvements in mood and physical health.
Studies have shown the increased incidence of chronic disease is directly related to toxic overflow in the body. Tourmaline produces a detoxifying, cleansing effect on the nervous system, as well as the organs and tissues of the body. It has been shown as a useful aid for improving circulation, reducing stress, improving brain alertness and activating the immune system.
Tourmaline is known to have a highly stabilizing effect on our nerves and is a powerful agent for reducing toxin-related ailments.

GERMANIUM is known to immensely detoxify the body of toxic metal substances like mercury and cadmium, Germanium stone is also known to assist with depression, cancer, food allergies, and viral infections. Consider Germanium stone as a strong antioxidant to help support the body’s immune system and blood flow to the brain.
When Far Infrared Rays are absorbed into the various organs of the human body, they activate, revitalize, and strengthen them. They promote micro-circulatory flow within the human body, improving overall health. When heated, Germanium can emit a high percentage of Far Infrared Rays between 4 to 14 microns. This frequency overlaps and resonates with the wavelength of 9 microns emitted by the human body.
Negatively charged ions from millions of germanium atoms attract harmful amounts of charged ions from the body. In this process, hydrogen ions accumulated in the body are combined with oxygen atoms and are eliminated.
Germanium is known to:
- Strengthen the immune system
