HJ: Considered one of the most precious substances on Earth and a supreme tonic in the Ayurvedic system of medicine, Shilajit has long been revered for its tremendous health giving properties. Perhaps more than anything else, Shilajit is a profound source of minerals for the body, which are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain from food, mainly due to the devitalization of our soils from over farming. Furthermore, Shilajit contains Fulvic and Humic Acids which are powerful detoxifiers with a particular affinity for heavy metals and toxic compounds. Shilajit is a building substance, meaning that it rejuvenates the body and restores it to optimal function after any level of depletion. Essentially, it is a powerful medicine that many of us here in the West would benefit greatly from.
Over 3 thousand years ago, the ancient Sanskrit holy texts made references to a mysterious substance called Shilajit, which they described as “the destroyer of weakness." The texts referred to the powerful health and spiritual benefits and positive changes that were experienced by those who used it. This sacred substance was prescribed for thousands of years for many different health problems and became one of the most treasured substances used in Ayurveda (Indian) medicine.
In Ayurveda, Shilajit has been used historically to benefit a myriad of conditions. used for general physical strengthening, anti-aging, blood sugar stabilization, injury healing, urinary tract rejuvenation, enhanced brain functioning potency, bone healing, kidney rejuvenation, immune system strengthening, arthritis, hypertension, obesity and many other applications. Shilajit helps to increase the core energy responsible for your sexual and spiritual power. It is commonly referred to as Indian Viagra. Indian Yogis on seeing the powers of Shilajit considered it to have divine powers capable of healing the body of virtually any ailments and above all restore youthfulness. It has been said that there is hardly any curable disease which cannot be assisted with the aid of Shilajit. In Ayurveda, it is highly revered as an overall panacea.
In Sanskrit the literal meaning of Shilajit is “Rock Like" – the power to make our body like a rock enabling it to withstand the ravages of time. Shilajit has that unmatched power of arresting and reversing the aging process.
Shilajit, also known as Mumijo, is Fulvic and Humic Acid. Humic substances are considered nature’s own best medicine for plants, animals, humans, and the Earth herself. This soil substance has the ability to clean up the Earth’s environment, neutralize radiation and deadly toxins, restore the agricultural lands, fuel the spark of life in living organisms, disarm and kill infectious pathogens, destroy the deadliest viruses, avert most, if not all imbalances, and restore diseased and damaged tissues and organs in plants, animals, and man.
Fulvic and humic acids balance and energize cell life and biological properties once it comes into contact with the cell. If the individual cell is restored to its normal chemical balance and electrical potential, we have given the cell life where death and disintegration would normally occur. This is due to the ability of Humic Acid to break down the salt acids that build up on the cell membrane, and the ability of Fulvic Acid to transport nutrients into the cell and flush toxins out of the cell. Fulvic and Humic Acids will break the bonds of inorganic matter and transform them into organic matter, including radiation and petroleum, and remove them from the body.
Humic substances are the sum total of all once living organisms, mostly plants, disassembled by nature’s brilliant decomposition and recycling processes, then highly refined by millions of species of beneficial soil-based microorganisms. These tiny beneficial plants refine, purify, combine, and re-refine, until tons of once-living matter are converted to pounds and ounces. Yet miraculously, when it is all said and done, the end product is not inert basic “dead” mineral elements, but is transformed into the world’s most complex and ultra-compact molecules.
Even the nucleic acids, RNA and DNA, of the earlier life-forms remain intact. The molecules are ultra-condensed and highly functional, rolled up into tight little balls that are supercharged biochemical and phytochemical powerplants, similar to storage batteries or fuel cells. Where did this supercharged power come from? It is sunshine light energy captured during plant photosynthesis, and through decomposition it is converted and stored within the interior of the world’s most refined and complex molecules.
The incredible story of Shilajit
About 200 million years ago, India was a large island off the Australian coast separated from the Eurasian continent by the Tethys Sea. The Indian continent drifted north at a rate of about 9 meters a century. This movement led to the eventual disappearance of the Tethys Sea. 40 to 50 million years ago the Indian continent collided with the Asian continent. This caused the sea bed of the Tethys sea to be pushed up and keep moving up to eventually form the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan mountains continue to rise more than 1 Centimeter a year. During this transition the mineral rich and fertile soil of the sea bed gave rise to a lush and dense tropical jungle. As the ground continued to be pushed up to become mountains a lot of the plants became trapped by layers of rock and soil and remained preserved for thousands of years. These plants had never been exposed to any chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides. They are gradually transformed into Humus, a rich organic mass that is food for new plant life. Due to microbial action and the tremendous pressure from the weight of the mountains the Humus was transformed into a dense, viscous, mineral rich mass. This is Shilajit.
The rediscovery of the power of Shilajit is said to have been made by Himalayan villagers observing large white monkeys migrate to the mountains in the warm summer months. The monkeys were seen to be chewing a semi-soft substance that flowed from between layers of rock. The villagers attributed the monkey’s great strength, longevity and wisdom to the strange substance. They began to consume it themselves and reported a broad spectrum of improvements in health. It seemed to give them more energy, relieve digestive problems, Increase sex drive, improve memory and cognition, improve diabetes, reduce allergies, improve the quality and quantity of life and it seemed to put a stop to all diseases.
