The life force of the minerals kingdom is the gemstones. The gemstones can be described as stores of the cosmic energy sent to the earth by the cosmos, and other planets within our solar system. These gems are considered a bridge between Earth and all the other celestial bodies. According to Vedic Astrology and Ayurveda, gems harness special energies which can enhance a person’s quality of life that site.
White light can be divided into seven colors (as in the rainbow) and two invisible ones, ultraviolet and infrared. Ayurveda considers the balance of these cosmic rays an essential part of physical and emotional well-being. Disease begins when the body is deficient in any one of these cosmic radiations.
These cosmic rays, which are found in abundance in natural gemstones, can never be exhausted even though they have been used in gem therapy for years. It is possible that the gem we think it looks like does not reflect the actual cosmic colors. It is easy to see the true cosmic color of a gem by looking at it through a prism. While ruby and emerald are actually green and red, the actual cosmic color of a gem is indigo, blue sapphire and pearl emit violet and orange colors respectively. Many other gemstones also transmit visible colors. The concentrated colors of the gemstones are released to the physical as well as the ethereal bodies when they are used for healing.
Vedic and Ayurvedic astrology both recommend specific uses of gemstones that amplify cosmic rays. When gems are properly used and prescribed, they can create a positive effect on the individual’s emotional, physical, and spiritual health. The nine light rays visible and invisible colors are transmitted by the specific nine gems. Ayurveda’s thousands-year-old literature has spoken of these gems’ healing powers. Here are some of the many health benefits that these gems can bring to your body.

Gems work best in special “gem therapy” lamps. Advanced uses may also include an electronic instrument which emits an extra vibration on the light that passes through the gem and then beams the energy onto the affected area.
This instrument and lamp is used in top resort spas for stimulating and relaxing, and for increasing skin elasticity. Certain spa treatments are now available to be combined with other popular treatments like facials or massage. Balaji Gem Instruments’ “Navaratna Gem Lamps” was displayed at a Resort and Medical Spa. It attracted crowds because they gave complementary treatments to spa guests and owners to prove how effective it is.

His comment is not only a statement that could be considered prophetic by natural health practitioners like Ayurvedic doctors, chiropractors, and Ayurvedic physicians, but also by a handful of progressive allopathic surgeons and doctors.
