On the possible physical foundations of health related effects of crystals

Med Hypotheses. 1991 Nov;36(3):213-5. doi: 10.1016/0306-9877(91)90134-k.


I propose a possible physical mechanism to account for widely claimed health related effects of crystals. The hypothesis relates the mechanism of such action to the isotropic diversity of crystals which leads to an enormous information storage capacity of crystal lattices. Sublattices of particular isotopes form an interactive network similar to simulated neural networks based on spin glass models.
