Could Shungite Help Mitigate the Negative Effects of EMFs?

I’ve been concerned about EMF and the rapidly growing amount of electronic pollution being produced for more than 15 years, beginning with my book on the subject, Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution

I wear a shungite necklace 24/7 as personal protection against EMFs. In fact, I am such a believer that years ago I shared my passion with creative genius Valerie Burke, who transformed a real need into reality with her company, The Shungite Queen©.

The beautiful Shungite jewelry from Shungite Queen©, specifically the necklace, bracelet and earrings, is what I personally use to protect my body from the damaging effects of EMF.  

I give these Shungite items away as Christmas gifts every single year as well because I know that it protects my body from the non-ionizing radiation produced by mobile phones and mobile phone towers, smart devices, and even WiFi.

Not only are the unique pieces stunning and eye-catching, but they really work.  I have actually tested the Shungite jewelry on my body against other pendants of EMF protective devices, and this stops EMF waves from penetrating.  That’s why I wear shungite 24/7, even to bed.

What is Shungite?

Shungite’s healing properties were first examined by Ukrainian scientist Grigory Andievsky. He concluded that shungite’s fullerenes act as adaptogens in the body, working at a cellular level but also systemically.

Fullerenes are the large spherical carbon molecules in shungite that attract free radicals to their surface, where they get trapped. Fullerenes are also the basis for carbon 60, which has a growing following due to its purported benefits for everything from cancer to fighting viruses and bacteria, to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.

Some experts believe shungite’s benefits are more energetic, which is supported by the work of Regina Martino and others.

Two rat studies demonstrate shungite’s radiation-protective benefits:
  • Shielding with shungite decreased the severity of damage from high-frequency electromagnetic radiation in Wistar rats. (Kurotchenko et al 2003)
  • Shungite was found to produce antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects against UVB radiation-induced skin damage in hairless mice. (Sajo et al 2017)
Whatever the mechanism, people report a wide variety of improvements on a surprisingly vast array of ailments when they use shungite, including reduced pain and inflammation, better sleep, improved moods and more.

Shungite water has been shown to have some powerful healing effects of its own, dating back to the18th Century with Peter the Great. Peter noticed shungite’s powerful healing effects and constructed a shungite spa for his soldiers. Many had been poisoned by a type of ore they were processing. Men who drank water from a nearby spring that ran through the shungite deposit recovered in just three days—much faster than normal.

In her book, Regina Martino describes a study at the Ukrainian Academy of Medical Sciences involving volunteer cancer patients. The group drinking shungite water had their blood panels return to normal within two to three weeks of radiation therapy, whereas the control group took three to four months.

Since the time of Peter the Great, the Karelians have been harnessing their local shungite treasure for all manner of things from relieving pain to suppressing allergies, rejuvenating tissues, detoxing, boosting immunity and fighting respiratory infections.

What Don’t We Know?

The level of environmental toxicity on our planet today is unprecedented. Not just electropollution, but chemicals, toxic air and water, and the like.
With the potential links Dr. Havas found between 5G and COVID-19, I am even more concerned about the implications of our ever-expanding daily EMF bombardment by the telecom industry, for ourselves and our planet.
Is shungite as effective against 5G’s millimeter waves and 4G? I can’t say. It does seem to be effective with countless other frequencies, so I have no reason to believe millimeter waves would be any different.

Of course, we don’t know what we don’t know.

We can say that shungite appears to have some EMF protective benefits, and positives for the immune system, and even some antiviral and antibacterial potential, but we don’t know if these translate to lowering one’s risk for COVID-19. This is a brave new world and we’ve only begun to dip our toes into the pool.
As with all treatments, we must find effective measures that have minimal downsides – no nasty side effects – and shungite meets that mark. It is completely safe when used appropriately.
I hope this at least this gives you a little more to think about, and a basis upon which to draw your own conclusions. Keep reading, and keep questioning with eyes and ears wide open!
