Shungite and EMF’s

Should you be concerned about EMF’s?

What are EMF’s?                                                                  EMF Spectrum

An EMF (which stands for “Electromagnetic Field”) is a field of energy created by electrically charged objects. An electromagnetic field has two “components”, an electric component & a magnetic component. The electric field is produced by stationary charges, and the magnetic field by moving charges (currents). Electromagnetic fields are also often referred to as “Electromagnetic Radiation” (EMR). You can’t see, feel or hear electromagnetic fields, apart from light, which is in the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences defines EMFs as “invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that is associated with the use of electrical power.” A wide range of electronic devices emit EMFs including baby monitors, mobile phones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, smart meters, and other wireless devices.

Mobile phones…most people can’t live without them these days!  Although many continue to poo-poo the risks, there is plenty of data to make our alarm bells ring.

Mobile phones emit microwave radiation in the 2 to 5 Gigahertz range. In 2016, the National Toxicology Program released disturbing preliminary results from the largest ever mobile phone study showing a link between mobile phone radiation and cancer.[2] Rats exposed to the frequency of radiation emitted by mobile phones develop two kinds of cancerous tumours: gliomas in the brain and schwannomas in the heart. Sadly, these results are in alignment with several observational studies finding links to the same types of tumours in humans, plus acoustic neuromas and meningiomas.[3]

After an extensive scientific review, in 2011 the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization) released a report classifying mobile phone radiation as a possible human carcinogen.[4] In 2015, 190 independent scientists from 39 countries sounded the alarm for stricter controls on mobile phone radiation.

Yet, in spite of all this, many governments continue to insist mobile phones are completely safe, and the CDC even deleted cautions from their mobile phone fact sheet.[5]

One study found that using a mobile phone for just 20 minutes per day increases brain tumour risk by 300 per cent over the course of five years.[6]

Whatever risks mobile phones and other electronic devices pose to us, they pose an even greater risk to our children. Holding a cellphone to your ear allows between 10 and 80 per cent of the EMFs to penetrate two inches into your brain—which is especially concerning for infants and children whose heads are smaller and with their delicate brains are still developing.

Shungite offers protection against both ionizing and non-ionizing EMFs. It’s not clear what the full range of frequencies might be that it affects. Several studies suggest shungite offers protection from ionizing radiation, such as ultraviolet and X-rays. A 2017 rodent study discovered a topical shungite preparation imparted significant protection to hairless mice exposed to UVB radiation due to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.[21]

Shungite and your WiFi Router

WifFI RouterOur measurements show that cubes & pyramids made from type two Shungite, when placed adjacent to the antenna of a Wi-Fi router will significantly reduce the Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Field, without a noticeable reduction in the range of the Wi-Fi signal. It is important to note that the positioning of the piece of Shungite is critical to success, it must be as near to the antenna as possible. If the Shungite is placed for example, at the opposite end to the antenna, then no significant reduction is seen.
Our router showed a peak reading of 0.2 mW/cm2 (milliwatts per square centimetre) without Shungite. This reading was reduced to below 0.01 mW/cm2 with Shungite in place. Readings were taken at a distance of 50cm from the router.
We measured with Cubes of size 4cm & 6cm, Pyramids of 4cm & 6cm & a tile 10cm x 10cm x 1cm. The 6cm cube & 6cm pyramid were the best performers although all pieces showed a similar significant reduction in the EMF.

Please be aware that you need to look up the specifications of your own Router to see exactly where the internal aerial is. Then you can place your Shungite as close as possible to that area. We do not have the ability to show each Router’s specifications and where you need to place the Shungite.

Recommended Types of Shungite For Household Items

We believe Shungite to be the premier stone of choice, to help protect us from ElectroMagnetic Frequencies. We use it throughout our home, especially in areas with higher amounts of electronic devices (eg, computers, wifi routers, microwave ovens, cordless home phones, radio alarm clocks and mobile phones). We also wear Shungite all the time or carry tumbles with us in our pockets.

WiFi Routers – Cube or Pyramid 4 – 6cm
Desktop Computer – Pyramid 4 – 6cm
Cordless Telephones – Tile
Radio Alarm Clock – Cube or Pyramid 4 – 6cm
Microwave – Cube, localized Pyramid 4 – 6cm, Tile
Car – Tile
Meter Box – Cube or Pyramid 6cm + Tile
Laptop/ Ipad – Tile or Pyramid 4cm

” Shungite Protection, Healing and Detoxification” by Regina Martino

The choice of protection can be divided into two distinct systems: either wearing or carrying the protection or changing the signal emitted by the apparatus localised protection.
In the first case, we are modifying the parameters of our own energetic system by using a stone that increases its concentration or density by reinforcing the first chakra. This method allows our bioenergetic system to continually correct the harmful interference.
In the second case, we apply the protective influence to the harmful source and this corrects and transforms the electromagnetic waves into biocompatible emanations. In the case of pulsed electromagnetic waves ( WiFi, cordless phones, mobile phones) the corrected influence emanates with the same strength as the original, harmful source but in a biocompatible way.”
