Meditation in a Medallion


I love two things: science statistics and jewelry. This is an internal dichotomy that I have yet to fully understand but have come to accept. (Throw in my long-term dedication to a Buddhist orphanage in India and a career in fashion and it gets even more complicated.) So you can imagine my delight when I started reading about Q-Link accessories. The website has page after page of science studies and numbers, including the fact that a mind boggling 40% of all adults suffer from adverse health effects as a result of stress, and approximately 80% of health problems in the US are stress-related. (I’m going to go a step further and venture to say that 110% of New Yorkers have some health problem due to stress.) According to the website, the thing that makes Q-Link so unique is the “wellness enhancing factor” provided by the company’s sympathetic resonance technology (SRT-3) which basically takes specially activated crystalline wafers and copper coils and uses them as a “tuning fork”. This then helps your body’s natural energies and frequencies. While I don’t really understand what any of that means, I was impressed by the results found during studies conducted at UC Irvine, University of Vienna, and Imperial College London, all of which demonstrated significant effects on living systems (in math terminology, “significant” means that there is a negligible chance that the results found happened by chance). Among other findings, doctors who tested the Q-Link found that it instantaneously amplified healthy energy states – and decreased energy drains caused by a wide variety of stressors.

So if you could do something to reduce your stress that doesn’t involve abstaining from alcohol or exercising more, wouldn’t you do it? And what if I were to say that it would even make you chicer? Oh and not to mention the fact that Madonna has been spotted sporting one of these guys. Below is one of my favorite pieces:
