Goitre: A Serious Problem if You Are Experiencing It.


This correspondence has been edited for privacy. Jenni is enquiring about a crystal to help her heal her goitre.

Jenni’s email/letter.

Hello Sue and Ron

Just found your website and it sounds like you’ve been on a wonderful journey.

I have a goitre on the left side of my neck which feels rather like there’s a boiled egg that’s been cut in half under my skin and while it’s not painful, it’s starting to impinge on my throat – not affecting breathing or swallowing but sometimes feels like I’ve got something stuck in my throat or like the lump you get when you’re about to cry.  I’ve had it scanned and there are nodules and it’s growing, slowly, but they couldn’t detect any cancer with a fine needle aspiration, and I’ve been battling with doctors not to have my thyroid removed and go onto thyroxin for the rest of my life. 

About 6 months ago I had an appointment with a nutritional doctor and have been taking bulk supplements since then but the goitre is not going away.  She also commented on my digestive system not working.

I’m doing some work with XXX on past hurts at the moment.  He thinks the supplements aren’t doing me any good due to my digestive system not assimilating them.  He’s got me doing a 10-day liver cleanse twice and he also recommends colonic irrigation (not done yet). Plus I’ve started listening to his meditation CD to release past hurts daily.

Her sister recommended crystals.

My sister has been having some great results with using a crystal on her knee so she recommended trying using a crystal….and that’s how I found you.  Sorry about all the waffle – just wanted you to know I’m working on it.

Just wondering if – after reading your site – if either Aquamarine or Blue Lace Agate might help…..would earings place them



close enough to my thyroid – like the heart shape blue lace although 3cm is pretty large for an earring.  How would I best place the crystal to affect the side of my throat….and which one(s) would you recommend?  Given your Crystal therapy training, I’d rather get your advice than just guess.

Kind regards and blessings


Our Response.

Hi Jenni,

Sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. You caught us at a busy time and we don’t like to respond without due consideration to your query.

It seems that you are on the right track. Usually, a number of factors contribute to conditions like Goitre, and all need considering. The causes are thought to be connected to a variety of triggers. These include environmental toxins and pollution, radiation exposure, smoking, an increase in viral and bacterial infections related to thyroid disease; as well as eating too many foods with high gluten, soy or iodine content.

An Iodine absorption test.

Paradoxically, iodine deficiency is often a culprit and the most common cause of goitre or an enlarged thyroid. An easy solution is to purchase some aqueous iodine and smear some on your abdomen, covering an area about the size of a fifty-cent piece. You may end up with yellow-tipped fingers. If you are deficient, you will find it absorbed to the level you require over about eight hours. You can do this daily if required. If after 24 hours most is still unabsorbed, you may assume you are getting sufficient through your diet. Whichever way, iodine is a key element in thyroid health and daily application in this manner, should not hurt. Many use Amber for iodine deficiency because it can boost iodine absorption. Wear it as a necklace or a pendant for best results.

Please take a look at our article: Balancing Your Thyroid with Healing Crystals.        

Beneficial Crystals.

Directly answering your question – Yes, Aquamarine and Blue Lace Agate would be beneficial. Often you can buy earrings made of these stones. You could also wear a pendant, keeping the chain shorter than usual, to wear it just below your throat. Another idea is to insert a small tumbled stone into a wire cage and worn similarly. You might also consider pinning it onto your collar near the goitre.

Unfortunately, for most people treatment continues as an ongoing process because nearly all thyroid conditions are chronic issues and are seldom reversible. But we always love to hear about a successful outcome. Crystals help to restore energy balance and allow the space for healing to take place.

Crystals to assist your digestive system.

In addition to the work you are doing with your nutritionist and XXX you might like to consider these crystals to help you energetically absorb the appropriate nutrients from your food. Apatite, Brazilianite, Green Kyanite, Leopard Skin Jasper, Moonstone, Serpentine and Vanadinite all assist with nutrient absorption. Bornite or Peacock Ore assists in balancing the right nutrient levels for your body.

You can wear these crystals as jewellery. (You can also improve their performance by programming them to aid nutrient absorption and regulation). Or you can carry one or two in your pocket.

A Crystal Grid to help vitalise your food.

You may want to construct a small crystal grid to vitalise your food. Use about a dozen stones set in a circle, utilising one or more of the crystals listed above. Placing your food inside the grid will energise it. To do this, simply place your plated food, within the grid for 1-2 minutes prior to eating. You can achieve even better results by holding the intention that the food is imbued with the energy of the crystals. As you consume the food, eat it with intention and purpose; Allow it to invigorate your spiritual being, nourish your physical body and provide what is needed for your highest good.

Dealing with additional symptoms.

As you have found, your goitre sometimes causes additional symptoms such as swelling or tightness in the neck. Fortunately, you aren’t having trouble swallowing or breathing. However, to avoid this, or should it become a problem consider using one of these crystals; Blue Calcite, Blue Fluorite and Blue Topaz soothe the throat in general and add cooling energy to reduce swelling. Honey Amber and Honey Calcite provide a soothing effect to the thyroid gland. They can also reduce coughing, trouble breathing, or hoarseness.

Results may be obtained by wearing these crystals as explained above. Alternatively, you may get relief holding your chosen crystal over the thyroid gland for 5-10 minutes. Do this 2-3 times daily or as needed. The crystal could also be taped in place with Micropore tape.

All the best,
