According to researcher Valerie Burke, Shungite has wide-ranging health (and industrial) benefits stemming from its extremely unique molecular structure. It is touted as offering everything from radiation protection to treating infections, inflammation, allergies, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, digestive problems, and skin conditions. In Russia, shungite has been studied extensively for the treatment of depression, trauma and all sorts of mental/emotional problems.
Shungite is the world’s oldest hydrocarbon-based rock’s it is not a mineral in the strictest sense of the word, although it’s often referred to as one. Shungite comes from only one place on Earth—an area known as Karelia, which is a geographic area divided between Russia and Finland. In 1887, shungite was named after the village Shung’a in Russian Karelia, near the shore of Onezhskoe Lake. The Karelian rock formation, known as the Zazhoginsky deposit, contains about 35 million tons of shungite and shungite rock.

EMFs are now directly associated with the following:
- Reproductive effects (e.g., reduced sperm count and motility, reduced fertility)
- DNA damage and oxidative stress
- Brain cancer
- Cognitive problems (impaired reaction time, memory, brain fog)
- Fatigue and malaise
- Digestive disturbances
To learn more about the health risks of EMF exposure, Ann Louise Gittleman has an excellent and very readable book on the subject, Zapped.
