Empowering Healing with Crystals: Support for Cancer, Chemotherapy, and Radiotherapy

Jimble Stevens

The journey through cancer, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy is a huge one however you look at it, it's often accompanied by a whirlwind of emotions and physical strain. Crystals can be a brilliant complementary therapy to use along side medical treatments (or alongside other holistic therapies if you chose not to go down the medical route) Crystals are believed to offer not only physical support but also emotional and spiritual healing, helping with a positive mindset essential for overcoming such a daunting experience.

I've put a lot of thought and research into this subject and these are, what I believe to be the most beneficial crystals for this journey.

Crystals for Cancer Support
Amethyst: Known for its calming and soothing energy, amethyst is excellent for relieving stress and anxiety. It helps balance emotions, providing a sense of peace and stability during turbulent times. Amethyst is also believed to support the immune system and be a powerful healer bringing energies back into balance enhancing overall health.

Rose Quartz: Often called the stone of unconditional love, rose quartz promotes self-love and emotional healing. Its gentle energy is comforting, helping to alleviate feelings of fear and despair. Rose quartz can also foster a positive outlook, essential for maintaining hope and resilience.

Clear Quartz: This powerful crystal is known for its ability to amplify energy and intention, as well as being a powerful overall healer. Clear quartz can help strengthen the immune system and bring clarity to the mind, aiding in focus and mental clarity, making it a versatile tool in healing for cancer.

Smoky Quartz: With its grounding and protective qualities, smoky quartz is excellent for dispelling negative energy and emotional blocks. It helps in detoxifying the body and mind, promoting a sense of grounding and stability. This lovely stone is thought to be a powerful one to use when undergoing chemo.

Carnelian: This vibrant crystal is known for its energising properties. Carnelian can help combat fatigue and boost vitality, making it particularly beneficial for those undergoing chemotherapy. It also supports the body's natural detoxification process.

Malachite: Often called the stone of transformation, malachite is believed to absorb negative energies and pollutants, helping to cleanse the body of toxins. Its protective energy can support the body during radiotherapy, shielding against radiation and promoting cellular regeneration.

Hematite: Known for its grounding and balancing properties, hematite helps in stabilising emotions and enhancing mental clarity. It is also believed to support blood health and improve circulation, making it beneficial during chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Positive Mindset
The power of positive thought cannot be overstated, especially during a health crisis. Our consciousness is a powerful tool that truly can influence our biology. 

The Power of Consciousness
There is a growing belief that our consciousness can be more powerful than our biology. This perspective suggests that our thoughts, beliefs, and intentions can significantly influence our physical state. Positive thinking has been proved to boost the immune system, lower stress levels, and improve outcomes of serious illnesses - If you fancy some inspiration I recommend  looking up "Marisa Peer" on you tube she has many videos about the power of words and she herself also overcame cancer at one point.


While crystals aren't a substitute for medical treatment, they can offer real support in the journey through cancer. Their lovely healing vibes combined with the power of positive thought, can help to provide comfort, strength, healing and hope. These crystal friends always have your back.
