Shungite and Orgonite: Debunking the myths

Share Article

Are you familiar with the intriguing mineral known as shungite? Predominantly found in the expansive landscapes of Russia, this black, lustrous mineral has been causing quite a stir recently. An increasing number of people are intrigued by the stories of its purported therapeutic properties and its ability to shield us from electromagnetic radiation, or EMF. However, are these stories grounded in fact, or are they merely folklore?

The composition of shungite is a unique amalgamation of carbon-based elements, with fullerenes being one of its key components. These specific carbon molecules are a topic of extensive scientific investigation due to their singular chemical and physical properties. They’ve been probed for their potential use in various domains, from the medical field to the electronic sector.

One of the highlights of shungite is its supposed capacity to absorb and neutralize EMFs. In today’s digital era, we are surrounded by electronic devices like mobile phones and computers that emit these invisible energy waves. Some claim that shungite acts as a protective barrier against this electromagnetic radiation. However, while it’s true that prolonged exposure to EMFs can potentially harm human health, we must note that the idea of shungite being a definitive solution is not backed by substantial scientific evidence.

Research into shungite’s efficiency at absorbing EMFs has been somewhat equivocal. Certain studies, such as this one suggest a level of effectiveness, while others contradict this finding. Moreover, even if shungite does absorb some form of electromagnetic radiation, it remains uncertain whether this is adequate for safeguarding against the potential health risks of continuous exposure to electronic devices.

Another frequently mentioned advantage of shungite is its alleged anti-inflammatory and antibacterial attributes. Although this mineral has been utilized in conventional medicine to address various conditions for centuries, we must emphasize the lack of robust scientific evidence to support these claims. Some research does indicate that shungite can deter specific bacteria types, but the translation of this into tangible health benefits is still under scrutiny.

Intriguingly, another substance has drawn attention in similar discussions – orgonite. A blend of resin, metals, and quartz, orgonite is claimed to balance bio-energy, or “orgone energy.” Some believe it can also protect against EMF radiation by absorbing and transforming it into positive energy. However, the science behind these claims is still in its early days, and much more research is required.

So while shungite and orgonite have their fascinating aspects and have been part of various traditional practices, it’s important to tread cautiously. Claims regarding their benefits, especially in relation to EMF radiation, need more scientific backing. It’s essential to rely on well-researched, scientifically supported methods for promoting health and well-being, and for protection against potential hazards like EMF radiation.

How EMF Radiation Impacts Athletic Performance

As an athlete, you’ve probably analyzed several aspects of your life and routine to optimize your performance. You may have started a regimented diet to eat more macro- and micro-nutrients to energize your body on and off the field. You may have taken more supplements or reduced your intake of alcohol to make sure you’re more hydrated. You may have taken ice baths to improve muscle inflammation and help with recovery.

However, you may be ignoring an aspect of your routine that inadvertently affects your performance — something more nefarious and hidden than you realize: EMF radiation.

What is the Blood Brain Barrier? EMF + the BBB

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a highly selective membrane that separates the circulating blood from the brain’s extracellular fluid and maintains a stable environment for optimal neural function. However, electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation from electronic devices can significantly affect the BBB’s permeability, potentially leading to harmful consequences for brain function. Long-term exposure to EMF radiation could potentially lead to a range of neurological disorders. It is essential to take steps to reduce exposure to EMF radiation to minimize the risk of neurological disorders and promote optimal brain health.
