Although very uncommon, shungite can prompt a healing crisis. If you suddenly begin feeling worse instead of better when you start wearing your shungite jewelry, or when you start placing shungite nearby, you could be experiencing a healing crisis. This is also known as a “detox reaction,” “Jarisch-Herxheimer” reaction, or "die-off." (Davis et al, 2013; Lancet 1977)
A healing crisis is a response to toxins being released from your tissues faster than your body can eliminate them. In other words, it suggests a congestion in a body system. Your cells release toxins into circulation, but your organs cannot eliminate them quickly enough (bowels, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin).
Some of the more common symptoms include:
Although certainly unpleasant, these symptoms are nothing to be concerned about – they’re actually a good sign that shungite is working.
Besides protecting us from EMFs, shungite is also a powerful detoxifier. Its effects vary from person to person, but those who are especially sensitive may experience some temporary symptoms. These commonly last no more than a few days but can occasionally persist a bit longer.
People who are battling serious illnesses may experience stronger reactions. These can be immediate or delayed - even after beginning to feel better, a person can slip into a healing crisis and experience a brief resurgence of symptoms.
It is important that if you do stumble into a healing crisis, please don’t just “push on through.” Pushing yourself in this compromised state stresses your body, which is counterproductive to your goals. Detoxing too quickly triggers increased cortisol release from the adrenal glands, which can lead to unstable blood sugar levels, electrolyte imbalance, and other health-defeating processes that slow the healing process.
It is not necessary to experience a detox reaction during detoxification - the goal is to help your body detox without triggering one. If a reaction occurs, the remedy is to adjust the “dose” while providing your body with some extra TLC.
The following are some effective ways of preventing, reducing, and resolving detox symptoms.
