My Medicated Mid-Life Baltic Amber and Succinic Acid
My Medicated Mid-Life
Baltic Amber Beads
Facebook, as I waste many minutes of my life. I found something NOT wasteful of
my time. A Facebook friend asked about Baltic amber beads for her teething
baby. Now, I’d never heard of such a thing, and me being the curious sort, and
this friend having some pretty cool ideas, I decided to do a little research.
Turns out, this Baltic
amber could alleviate arthritis and carpal tunnel pain.
I found several
sites to choose from, and finally settled on a website based in Dallas- my ‘hood.
Essentials.Com “When you wear Baltic amber, and its primary substance,
succinic acid, comes in contact with your skin, trace amounts of the oils are
released and are absorbed into your body. As Amber warms against your
body the succinic acid is absorbed into your bloodstream which facilitates
This has my
attention. I take enough meds that anything natural could offer welcomed additional
relief. The main ingredient of Baltic amber, Succinic acid, has the possibility
for a myriad of healing facilities. I found several websites discussing the
value for its’ use. The popularity in Europe seems to be more substantial than
within the US.
According to Way
of the Wild Heart. “Succinic acid
is a powerful antioxidant shown to stimulate neural system recovery, eliminate
free radicals and modulate the immune system. It is also used to discourage
disruptions of the cardiac rhythm and to ease stress. Succinic acid helps
restore strength and energy to the entire body, enhances brain function and so
helps to improve awareness, concentration and reflexes.”1
Further, succinic acid may aid in reducing inflammation. “Inflammatory
immune cells, when activated, display much the same metabolic profile as a
glycolytic tumor cell. This involves a shift in metabolism known as the Warburg
effect. Emerging evidence is now pointing to a role for the Warburg effect in
the immune and inflammatory responses. The reprogramming of metabolic pathways
in macrophages, dendritic cells, and T cells could have relevance in the
pathogenesis of inflammatory and metabolic diseases and might provide novel
therapeutic strategies. This has implications in the repair and regeneration of
cells, inflammation, cancer and neurological disease.” 2
More to come as I research
and possibly test this application.
