Shungite and Why You Need It

Working at Teaneck's Rock Collage, a holistic healing shop that specializes in crystals (all of the crystals), I've had the pleasure of learning about a miraculous stone called Shungite. This little gift from nature is ancient in time but is a novice to most in the wellness community, and almost unknown to the general public. The truth is, everyone should know about Shungite, because it has the capacity to change your life.

Shungite's Origin Story

Originating from Lake Onega located in Karelia, Russia, Shungite's properties were known by Peter the Great, emperor of Russia during 1719. He believed so strongly in it's healing properties , that he had a spa made entirely out of the stone for his soldiers to use when they fell subject to illness. Since then, it's been a marvel to science, as there is still an ongoing debate if the is naturally produced by the Earth, or if it was a meteorite that crashed here centuries ago.

Hundreds of years ago Shungite was used to heal everything from hypochondria to kidney stones, leaving one question standing today: What are the ways you can use Shungite?

1. Purifying Water

For our (amazing) clients and viewers who reside in Teaneck and the state that is New Jersey, it was publicized in November 2018 that New Jersey water was a carrier of a carcinogen known as PCFOA. Otherwise known as perofluorooctanoic, which is known to create disease within the body, from thyroid issues to cancer. I've linked the original article below for you to check out.

Common water purifying options are to purchase a Brita, or to shell out up to $5,000 for a Kangen water alkalizer. The cons? A Brita only filters out chlorines, leaving other toxins like fluorides, pharmaceuticals and heavy metals in the water. The Kangen is a reputable brand and machine, but without the funds to obtain one, it can leave you feeling hectic, lost and frustrated.

This is where Shungite comes in: Being made out of 98% carbon, and containing molecules called fullerlenes , hollow nano molecules that are capable of neutralizing close to any type of toxin.

Best Water Purifying Method

When placed in distilled water, Shungite is capable of wiping out all traces of nitrates, chlorines, bacteria, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, fluorides , radioactive particles, viruses and pathogens. It is best to rinse off your Shungite before placing it in your distilled drinking water. Allow the stones to sit anywhere between 8-24 hours, after that, enjoy your purified water! You can do this for a water jug and for personal water bottles, for both holders, glass is preferred over plastic.

2. Protecting You from EMF

Everyone's been talking about EMF, but what is it exactly, and what are the consequences ?

EMF or ElectroMagneticFields, are created by differences in voltage and magnetic fields are created when the electric current flows According to WHO, electromagnetic fields affect us because our human bodies have their own electric and biochemical responses (e.g., nervous system, digestion, brain function, heart function). So exposure to EMFs can interact with your body in adverse ways, causing fatigue, sleep disorders, burning of the skin, muscle and joint pain, brain fog, depression, infertility and cancer.

You can check out this article by Body Ecology to find out what the main culprits of EMF are

When it comes to protecting yourself and your family from EMFs there is such a thing as shielding, which is exactly what it sounds like: Inserting a boundary between you and these toxic forces.

Shungite is able to neutralizes these EMFs the same way its able to purify water: the fullerlenes.

Best Methods for Shungite EMF Protection:

For home: We recommend purchasing Shungite pyramids and placing them anywhere your electronics reside, especially near microwaves, laptops and routers

For phones: If you have a modern day cell phone, you are carrying a pocket full of EMFs, and most, if not all of us, cannot drop our phones in the Hudson and take up a nomadic life with no need for texting or CCing emails. Fortunately for everyone, we do carry Shungite Cell phone protectors, a mini slate of Shungite that adheres to the back of any cell phone, providing a shield between you and any EMFs.

For your body: Wearing anything from pendants, bracelets and even a pair of earrings can drastically reduce the amount of radiation you are absorbing.
