Healing Minerals: The Health Benefits of Tourmaline

Updated: Feb 20, 2019

There are many nutrients that we can consume from food form or supplement form that can help us to heal from various ailments.  That is what Science Based Nutrition was founded on, which I practice.

The advantages of nutritional healing tools are; they are natural and you don’t have the potential side effects that come with pharmaceutical chemicals, which don’t occur in nature.

There are also healing energies of certain minerals (often referred to as “healing minerals”) that can be very therapeutic not when you swallow them, but when your body is exposed to them from the outside.

 They are the minerals that heal from the outside in, not the inside out.

In my opinion, the most amazing of these minerals is tourmaline!

Tourmaline – The Superstar Mineral

Tourmaline is one of the world’s most complex and powerful healing minerals. It is a semi-precious mineral. The word “tourmaline” comes from northern India and means “mixed colored stones”.

Because tourmaline is found in so many different colors, they were often confused with other types of gems. Tourmaline is not a single mineral, but a group of minerals with several crystal patterns.  

Tourmaline is among the most intricate of all healing minerals, containing many elements, including, but are not are not limited to; aluminum, boron, silicon, chromium, oxygen, hydrogen, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron and lithium. These elements are  bonded to other elements and are not free to enter into the human body.

Each tiny tourmaline crystal has a north and a south pole and generates a tiny electromagnetic field. Humans generally can’t perceive this energy, but animals seem to be able to, since many animals migrate using the earth’s electromagnetic field.  They have a built in GPS.  

The health benefits of tourmaline have been well documented for thousands of years.  Tourmaline has been used for various treatments by many cultures all over the world.

Tourmaline helps to promote health and well being, by putting our cells into a high energy efficiency and highly balanced mode, by stimulating our mitochondria in our cells to burn fuel more efficiently.  The mitochondria are known as the “powerhouse” of the cell.  When the mitochondria produce more energy, cells can use that extra energy to heal.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction

There is a growing consensus that all chronic diseases that are known today, may have a common root cause, which is mitochondrial dysfunction.

This includes, but is not limited to; cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimers and dementia, learning disabilities including autism, autoimmune diseases and fibromyalgia.  


There are many causes of mitochondrial dysfunction.  Our modern environment has created the “imperfect storm”, which includes; genetically modified food (GMOs), toxins, pesticides including Glyphosate (Roundup), prescription and over the counter drugs, gluten and EMF that is also called “dirty electricity”.

What Makes Tourmaline So Special?

Tourmaline produces three energies.

Energy # 1 – Far Infrared: Through Thermal-Photonic Conversion  body heat is transformed into far infrared energy. This occurs on the surface of the tourmaline. The smaller the particle size, the greater amount of far infrared is produced per gram of tourmaline.

Energy #2 – Negative Ions: Negative Iions are generated by tourmaline when it is in contact with kinetic energy. This can be from pushing, pulling, stretching, striking, rubbing or oscillating. This is called a piezoelectric effect.  Negative ions will make the tissue more alkaline, which is a healthier cell environment than an acidic environment.  Negative ions also stimulates formation of blood vessels, increased blood flow and higher blood oxygen levels.  Negative ions scavenge free radicals, reduce oxidative stress and reduce inflammation.   

Energy #3 – A Pyroelectric Effect: A mild therapeutic flow of electrons are also produced by the tourmaline particles, with a rise or fall in temperature. Tourmaline particles also generate an energy field, since they have a north pole (negative) and a south pole (positive).  Everything from a bar magnet to the earth that has a north and south pole produces an energy field.  Tourmaline is no exception.   

This energy may be the most powerful and beneficial energy. Tourmaline generated energy fields are related to the Schumann Resonance, which is between the earth and the ionosphere.  That resonance is 7.83Hz and is referred to as the earth’s “heartbeat” or “pulse”.   

 What Makes Tourmaline So Special?

FIR Industries is the only company in the world that has patent pending technology to bond nanometer sized mineral particles to fabrics, textiles and fibers. These products are called theTourma®Line.

Tourma®Tape is one of the cornerstone products from FIR Industries.  Tourma®Tape is different from any tape on the market. The mechanics of a kinesiotape provides the therapy. The Tourma®Tape itself actually provides therapy.  That therapy is provided by the energy produced by the tourmaline particles that are in the Tourma® Tape itself.  Users have reported great clinical success treating many varying conditions.    

Tourma®Blankets and Tourma®Mats for Pets also contain nanometer sized tourmaline particles.  Tourmaline particles can increase serotonin production, as well as alpha brain waves, which can result is promoting deep and regenerating sleep.

The smaller the particle of tourmaline is, the greater the energy will be for each gram of tourmaline used. This comes directly from a study published on PubMed.gov. FIR Industries uses nanometer sized tourmaline particles, which is the smallest particle size that can be produced today.
