HOW CAN BEAKED HAZEL WOOD
Beaked hazel wood can relieve acid-related ailments such
as acid reflux, ulcers, heartburn, and other acid-related ailments. Our necklaces are a great remedy to
take the edge off of heartburn and morning sickness during pregnancy.
Hazel wood also helps relieve skin problems such as
(psoriasis, eczema, acne, and diaper rash) constipation, headaches, migraines,
canker sores, and the occurrence of dental cavities when these ailments are
related to excessive acid in the body (and sometimes they are not).

remedy, but our customers experience tells us that generally Baltic Amber
provides greater relief for teething discomfort than beaked hazel wood.

vegetables. When the body becomes more
acidic than alkaline the medical condition of acidosis develops. Acidosis weakens many of the body's systems
that help keep it healthy and disease free.

- It is not recommended to wear it in the pool, spa,
or in other highly chlorinated water.
life span of the necklace will depend on the level of acidity of the body.
In general, a necklace will maintain its therapeutic value for 4-12
months. Higher acidity may mean a
shorter lifespan of the necklace. A
necklace is losing effectiveness when the ends of the wood beads darken
and/or symptoms return. If you've chosen a necklace with gemstone beads, the benefit of the gemstones last a lifetime. When it is time to replace your hazel
necklace, keep your gemstone beads! Just rinse them off from
