Found near the small village of Shun'ga in Russia, the remarkable mineral known as shungite formed naturally more than 2 billion years ago from living single-cell organisms. Used in Russia healing therapies since the time of Peter the Great, shungite contains almost the entire periodic table of the elements as well as fullerenes, the hollow carbon-based molecules that recent research shows are able to slow both the growth of cancer cells and the development of AIDS virus.
Citing many double-blind scientific and medical studies on shungite, Regina Martino explains its many protective, healing, and detoxifying properties, including its ability to counteract the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields and radiation from computers, cell phones, Wi-Fi, and other electronic devices and appliances. Acting as a natural antioxidant, immune booster, pain reliever, and allergen suppressant, shungite and "shungite water" can be used to treat skin ailments and musculoskeletal diseases, accelerate the healing of cuts and wounds, cleanse internal systems, and increase the body's intake of vital energy. Detailing Shungite's many micro-elements and biologically active substances, Martino reveals how the stones have been proved to purify and revitalise water. Exploring the energetic properties of shungite, she reveals how it facilitates energetic transfers between the chakras and higher energies outside the body and can be used to harmonise living spaces.
Truly a marvel of the natural world, shungite offers protection against the perils of our modern technological world and healing for both body and spirit.
