“Why they always look so serious in yoga? You make serious face like this, you scare away good energy. To meditate, only you must smile. Smile with face, smile with mind, and good energy will come to you and clear away dirty energy. Even smile in your liver.”
—Ketut from Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”
To me, true happiness comes when you can be truly happy in every cell of your body — when you can even smile in your liver. But is it that simple? Can you still smile in your liver if your liver isn’t happy? As it turns out, there are many reasons your liver might not be smiling, both emotional and physical reasons.

You probably know that our metabolism is made up of thousands of biochemical reactions that are vital to our health and survival. But did you know that metabolism does more than just break down fat for energy? It is also responsible for using energy to create new hair, skin, nails, organ tissue, cells, etc.
Metabolic functions depend on healthy organs. Hormones determine our metabolic rate, and are secreted by the pancreas, thyroid and adrenals. Some of the ways these organs and their respective hormones affect metabolism are as follows:
Amethyst, the most valuable of all of the quartz minerals, is often used to make jewelry because of its beauty and durability. However, it was also used in ancient times to address many common ailments, including hearing problems, headaches, sleeplessness, mental stress or disorders, and alcohol addiction.
While even the most open-minded person in search of useful and safe healing alternatives may wonder if it’s true, the value of amethyst as a healing alternative is neither legend nor myth. Rather, it’s an established fact based on a number of studies and conclusions from health experts, including the following:

SAD is a mood disorder that typically affects us when the weather becomes colder in September or October, and ends in April or May when the weather becomes warmer. People with SAD feel depressed during the shorter days of winter, and more cheerful and energetic during the brightness of spring and summer.
According to Dictionary.com, summer is “a period of fruition, fulfillment, happiness, or beauty.” Winter is “a period of time characterized by coldness, misery, barrenness, or death.” And so there you have it — your reason for hibernating through the winter.
But none of us know how many days we have left, so we want to get the most from each day. Life is a gift, meant to be lived to its fullest, appreciated, experienced, and not taken for granted. So how do we find our mojo through the cold and dark days of winter? Do we jump on a flight to a tropical paradise and hang out there until we are graced with the sun once again here? Tempting, but not realistic, perhaps.
Don’t despair, there are some things you can do that just might make you feel light, bright and shiny again!

Now the owner of Luminous Lotus Healing, it’s easy for Sonya to recognize the transformation she has made over the years. Her past focus seems a far cry from her current lifestyle, and she knows it.
“I’ve done many different things, and I just felt that it wasn’t enough to just make money,” Sonya says, but she is also quick to give credit to the traditional business course. “The whole process helped me tremendously. I gained a lot of knowledge and credibility.”
The combination of business savvy and a natural interest in the alternative-health world spurred an entirely different path: one that has allowed her to know what works and what doesn’t, and what’s important and what could use a little less focus. One thing that has always been clear, however, is her positive perspective.
“Anything is possible,” she says. “Keep your mind open and trust yourself. Allow the good things to happen and don’t second guess it. Savor the moments you feel good about yourself and life.”
With an open view, a variety of tools to make anything work and a genuinely positive spirit, Sonya started her journey.
A destined discovery on the path to health
Always interested in the natural, alternative lifestyle, Sonya knew there were other options when, after feeling ill for some time, she couldn’t find relief in traditional medicine. Experiencing muscle aches and brain fog, she wasn’t sleeping and was feeling the toll on her body.
“Basically, nothing was working. I tried everything. I thought I had, anyway,” Sonya explains.
In her effort to take control of her health, she discovered something that would do just that — and much more. Help came in the form of the Amethyst BioMat, an all-natural way to approach health and healing. Inquisitive at first, she immediately noticed the transformation she was hoping for.
“I was so curious about the BioMat,” Sonya says. After giving in to her curiosity and giving it a try, she was hooked. “I was able to think again, and get off my prescription drugs.” she says.
The BioMat, an infrared heating mat designed to help the body heal naturally, is also a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved medical device that has been around for 14 years: a fact Sonya doesn’t take lightly.
“There’s already been so much research on the BioMat that it’s easy to find out what you want to know,” she says.
How the BioMat works
The Amethyst BioMat has three components that allow it to help a variety of health issues. The infrared rays safely penetrate 6-8 inches into your body, thus warming your body from the inside out. The benefit doesn’t start or stay at the surface and is able to truly affect the cells and nerves of the body. Why? The rays increase circulation and allow more oxygen to relieve pain and stress.
The BioMat also holds a couple components that are less than commonplace: amethyst crystals and negative ions.
Metaphysically speaking, amethyst crystals have several healing properties. They are calming, and are often used to help with addictions, sleep issues and chakra balancing. Scientifically, amethyst works as a super conductor for the far infrared rays that are emitted by the BioMat. This is such a powerful healing tool because it safely allows the far infrared rays to penetrate into the body due to the natural element of the crystal.
Along with the infrared rays and amethyst crystals, the BioMat emits negative ions which help the human body’s cells regenerate. Due to ionization, blood is purified and becomes more alkaline. Many sicknesses, including cancer, cannot live in alkaline environments.
“The BioMat restores optimal health. To put it in a nutshell, whether there’s something wrong with you that you’re trying to fix, or you’re an athlete trying to optimize your abilities, the BioMat will help you achieve your goals.” Sonya explains.
Who the BioMat helps
The BioMat is the perfect option for the everyday struggles such as aches and pains, arthritis, migraines, stress and anxiety, insomnia and fibromyalgia.
The BioMat covers a wide spectrum of solutions. Whether you’re an athlete who wants to improve performance or recovery time or you’re struggling through a more severe health issue like cancer or cancer recovery, the BioMat brings you relief for both your physical and mental distress.
There are very real and clear medical benefits to using the BioMat (approved by the FDA in 2011), but Sonya also acknowledges its instant ability to help people simply relax. It naturally causes you to enter into a meditative state, aiding in depression and anxiety.
“It addresses nonphysical things because it reduces cortisol and increases serotonin,” Sonya explains. “And if you really need to see results and you have something going on in your body that you need to solve, the BioMat can help give you relief for all of it.”
The BioMat goes up to 158 degrees. Don’t let that number scare you away, though.
“It doesn’t feel that hot when you’re on it,” Sonya clarifies. “Even a simple heating pad has the potential to burn your skin. A BioMat cannot burn you… once people try it, they know the difference immediately. With eight temperature settings, you’re always in control.”
Healing from the comfort of your own home
Sonya offers individual BioMat sessions at Luminous Lotus Healing, and she teaches clients to approach using the device in a more consistent way, too: by buying their own for home use. The best results are achieved by using it frequently and consistently in the comfort of your own home. Once someone has purchased a BioMat, she suggests they visit her for the other healing modalities she offers, like crystal therapy, Reconnective Healing and Access Bars.
“The BioMat is super easy to use yourself,” she says. “You don’t have to carve extra time out of your day to use one. You just incorporate it into what you’re already doing.”
Whether that means healing your body while you relax by adding a BioMat to your bed or floor, or even your living room sofa, you can heal while you read, meditate or sleep. There’s even a mini mat to bring along on road trips or to your office for a long day of sitting and working on the computer, with it doubling as a therapeutic and healing “seat warmer.” There’s a BioMat for every scenario.
A safe sanctuary
Sonya admits that her journey is far from over, and she does have a firm grasp on the kind of growth and evolution Luminous Lotus Healing will continue to see.
“I don’t want anyone to ever feel like they’ll ever be judged about anything. I want to help people be happier and healthier on their own paths,” she says. “I want it to be a safe place, a little sanctuary with time away from things that are bothering you — to get time away and to get in touch with you and feel good about it — to heal and grow, not only physically, but a place to heal and grow emotionally and spiritually too.”
Success across the spectrum
“I was doing BioMat therapy in an assisted living center when a man came down and said that he would love to tell his 86-year-old wife,” Sonya remembers. She knew the woman was resistant and thought it might be a struggle. She was wrong. “I’ll never forget what she said with tears in her eyes: ‘Isn’t my husband the most wonderful man? It’s so wonderful that he brought me here. This is the first time in years that I’ve actually felt warm.’”
Another successful instance came in the form of restoring control of one client’s health after cancer. “I had a client who was in desperate fear of her cancer returning,” Sonya says. “She thought she might be terrorizing herself into more cancer. After purchasing her own BioMat for home use, her health and her attitude shifted, and she realized she could be in control of healing herself.”
