3 ways to gain the benefits of Shungite

There is no doubt about it, screen time lately in most households has been unavoidably through the roof and if you’re anything like me and super sensitive to the electromagnetic field, the increase in screen time may have left you feeling a little wired and mentally fatigued?

With this in mind, now more than ever is the perfect time to call on your crystal collection and put them to good use! In particular, now is the time for your Shungite to help purify some of those electro nasties.

Firstly a little bit of background info on this incredibly fascinating rok!
Shungite is named after and originates from Shunga in Karelia, Russia where it has been used for centuries in folk law medicine and for purifying water. In fact, in the 18th Century Peter the Great insisted that the Russian Army carry shungite on them to purify their drinking water and to use for wound healing.

Now to the fun stuff! Shungite's healing properties and how to incorporate them into your daily life.

Here are our top 3 ways to gain the benefits of Shungite:

- Protection against EMF's
Studies have shown that Shungite is able to provide protection against electromagnetic emissions. Whilst shungite does not eliminate EMFs, it creates a protection by changing harmful man-made EMFs into wave forms that are more compatible with our human biology. Shungite's protective characteristics are reportedly present whether the rok is in direct contact with your body or just nearby making it the perfect rok to keep close by your TV or nearby when working on your computer.

- Purify Water
Numerous studies have confirmed that adding Shungite to water has a number of health benefits. Placing high quality Shungite in water for a minimum of 2-3 hours has the ability to not only purify the water from so many different nasties but also to add beneficial mineral components back into the water.

- Reduce Inflammation
Whilst the research is still a little scarce in this area, there was a study in 2017 where researchers measured lower levels of inflammatory markers after continuous exposure to Shungite for 7 consecutive days. The reduced inflammation, included cytokines or proteins which is involved in inflammation. Because of these results, the scientists speculated that shungite may be useful for inflammatory diseases. Again, more research is necessary.

This powerful mystical beauty has been around for centuries working her magic to protect and purify and now more than ever is the time to put her to work, hold her close and drink up!
