It seems like every few months new studies emerge that increase our concerns about the damage electropollution does to our bodies. When it comes to cell phones, cordless phones, computers and other Wi-Fi devices, the news feels like a never-ending trickle of doom and gloom. EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are linked to DNA damage, brain cancer, inflammation, fatigue, reproductive abnormalities, premature aging, and a barrage of other health problems. Every day, more and more people are searching for ways to engage in EMF protection.
Your cell phone may even be sabotaging your weight loss efforts. In a 2013 observational study, Samuel Milham, MD, PhD, makes a convincing case for dirty electricity driving the obesity epidemic. Electropollution is known to zap your thyroid, and impaired thyroid function plays a key role in weight gain, fatigue, mood irregularities, and other health struggles.
And then there’s 5G, the next generation wireless coming soon to a lamppost near you. We will be bombarded by ultra-high frequency bursts in an even denser electromagnetic cloud than exists today. In a sense, EMF protection is becoming more vital. Unlike 4G, plants and even rainwater can absorb 5G frequencies, so we can start eating and drinking our radiation as well. 5G paves the way for the “Internet of Things,” driverless cars and artificial intelligence. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, how about some good news, for a change? A mineraloid called shungite shows great promise in helping protect us from EMFs.
If you’ve never heard of shungite, you’re not alone—it may be the world’s best kept secret, as well as the oldest. Shungite is a hydrocarbon-based rock dating back more than 2.5 billion years to the Precambrian era. In 1887, shungite was named after the village Shung’a in Russian Karelia, the home of the earth’s one-and-only outcrop of the mineral.
This amazing stone may be new to Westerners, but the Karelians have been using it medicinally for centuries — long before EMF protection became a “thing.” Shungite lore dates back to the reign of Ivan the Terrible, at which time it was simply called “local slate.” It has wide-ranging health and industrial uses due to its extremely unique molecular structure.
Over the centuries, shungite has been said to treat everything from allergies and infections to inflammation, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, digestive maladies, and skin conditions. In Russia, shungite has been studied extensively in the treatment of depression, trauma, and other mental/emotional problems. There are even healing rooms made of shungite!
The special properties of this mineral result from gigantic hollow carbon structures called fullerenes (or “buckeyballs”), named after the late Buckminster Fuller who was famous for his geodesic dome architecture. In 1991, Science magazine dubbed fullerenes “molecule of the year,” and in 1996, the scientists who synthesized them in the lab were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Scientists did not know fullerenes existed in nature until 1992 when they were discovered—guess where? In shungite!
Shungite, for EMF protection and more, can be used a number of ways. The stones can be worn on or close to the body, or placed around the home. There is even something called “shungite water” that you can make from a specific type of shungite, which is then consumed or used in the bath.
Shungite has significant antioxidant properties. It is antiviral and bactericidal, and it has a remarkable ability to grab on to chemicals like chlorine and fluorine, volatile organic compounds, drugs, and radioactive particles. The Russians have been using it for years in water purification, and just recently it is under investigation for assisting in the Fukushima clean up effort.
Shungite studies, as well as anecdotal accounts, point to a long list of potential health benefits including the following:
- Protection from ionizing radiation, non-ionizing radiation (including EMFs), and geopathic stress
- Immune booster and healing accelerator
- Anticancer (slowing cancer cell growth)
- Pain reducer
Shungite Transforms EMFs, Neutralizing their Effects
We love our technology, but we have to be smart about using it. Few of us are willing to live off the grid or give up our electronic devices, so we need some natural tools to safely and effectively shield us from this every-present radiation. That’s a tall order and why shungite is big news!
In her book Shungite: Protection, Healing, and Detoxification, bioenergetics researcher Regina Martino details the health benefits that have actual scientific backing. One of these is its ability to offer some protection from electropollution (non-ionizing radiation). Martino has extensively studied the impact of shungite on the human energy field. Through repeated experiments, she has determined that when an individual has shungite in or around them, the negative effects of EMFs are greatly reduced.
Shungite does not absorb EMFs—it structurally “transforms” them, changing their wave forms in a way that neutralizes disruptive biological effects.
These benefits are not limited to non-ionizing radiation—shungite may also mitigate the effects of ionizing radiation. A 2017 study showed how a topical shungite preparation protected hairless mice exposed to UVB radiation. Similarly, a Ukrainian study found that rats exposed to radiation and given shungite water for 15 days showed a 95 percent survival rate, compared to 63 percent for the control group.
How to Harness the Power of Shungite for Ourselves
Black shungite can be carved and polished into forms, such as spheres, making beautiful functional art. It’s used for jewelry, pocket stones, and sculptural pieces that can be placed around a space to mitigate the effects of EMFs. Shungite placed near an electronic device does not interfere with the device’s function, but positively alters the emanations. Shungite jewelry should be metal-free or at least contain a minimal amount of metal, as metal is essentially an EMF antenna.
For maximum benefit, shungite should be placed both on your body and around your living or working space, especially in high-EMF zones, to create overlapping shields of protection.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for this shiny black miracle mineral! To learn more, I direct you to a new 2018 Special Report by Valerie Burke called Shungite: The Electropollution Solution. She is dedicated to helping others embrace EMF protection and she is making this report available to you as a FREE download, from her website at the link above. I introduced you to Val last year in my blog post about EMF jewelry.
In her report, she includes dozens of scientific studies and articles, as well as covering the different types of shungite and best uses for each, how to tell real shungite from fake, how to make shungite water, and more. The report is great because it has all the latest information—minus the myths—under one cover.
Electromagnetic fields are ubiquitous today—we can’t see them and we can’t escape them, so the more protection we have, the better. If you decide to invest in some shungite or shungite jewelry, make sure it comes from a reputable vendor who is selling the real thing—not just some black rock imposter. Unfortunately, this is an issue now that the word is out.
Remember, the best way to reduce EMFs is to limit your exposure. Turn off your cellphone. Unplug your Wi-Fi. Move your cordless phone base station as far away from you as possible. Make your sleep environment as EMF-free as you can. Many people don’t realize how badly EMFs are affecting then until they’re away from them for a while.
And for those times when you can’t unplug, adding a little extra boost of EMF protection — shungite — to your life may be the perfect prescription!
