    Hi Margarita, I truly appreciate your article on shungite water.

    I am new to this awesome stone. It has helped me tremendously with pain. I wear a shungite bracelet and carry an elite noble in my bra. The first few days, I experienced a slight headache and I am sure I was detoxing bad energy and I noticed that I had an overall well-being feeling which continues to last.

    My question now though pertains to how much shungite water to give my Shit Zhu/Maltese, she weighs, 7 lbs and her water bowl holds two cups…I drink the shugite water, I have a 1 liter glass container with nuggets of the elite noble. Should I put a nugget in her water bowl? I read on another site that pets can tolerate 3 nuggets in their bowl…what do you suggest?

      Hi Verna,

      I just love hearing that! So cool it banishes the pain you are experiencing. I wonder what is a source of the pain…

      I surfed through the Russian Internet for a while and unfortunately could not find any recommendations on shungite dose for pets. Just read stories of owners telling that their cats, horses, dogs when given a choice between a shungite, filtered, rain or even spring or well water, choose the first. And there are a couple studies conducted on animals. For example, after given shungite infused water or fullerene containing substances, lab animals with cancer live twice as long, chickens have larger eggs, pets less often contract parasites and enjoy a greater tolerance to infections. One site recommended introducing it to pets gradually. Since your dog is tiny and thus more vulnerable than larger dog breeds, sudden intense detoxification and other cleansing mechanisms can make her sick. So, introducing shungite water gradually makes sense in your case.

      To make shungite water for my Standard poodle I use the same amount of stones as for myself but put twice or three times as much water. He is about 55 pounds. I don’t put shungite directly in his bowl but in a separate glass jar. The stones are there all the time. I just clean the jar and the stones about once a week. I recently met a poodle breeder and she was surprised to hear that he is seven years old. She said that he has an excellent physique. Of course, that’s not only because of that. Besides, he was drinking this water for less than a year. But still. Regarding the shungite amount or concentration I don’t see why not try the same approach for your Shit Zhu/Maltese.

      Just in case, to be on the safe side, what you may want to do is this:

      1) Give her water with 25% shungite water for a week. Prepare shungite water the same way as you would for yourself, but add 2-3 times more water.

      2) Then, in a week, give her a choice – fill one bowl with whatever water she usually has and the other bowl with 25% shungite water. Animals naturally sense what their body needs – think of this as an “instinct of health”. Humans can’t compete with animals in this regard.

      3) If she chooses shungite then start giving her that. Gradually, make it to be 100% shungite water. The author of this book on shungite gave his cat a week to get used to it. Shit Zhu/Maltese is about the same weight, so give her a week or so to adjust.

      Also, I dug a bit for western articles dealing with shungite effect on animals. This US paper lists carbon-60 fullerene (C60) as one of the anti-aging supplements for animals including dogs. And it mentions shungite as one of the natural sources of fullerene. Consensus is always good.

      If you need any clarification, just let me know.

      Wish you and your little one a splendid feeling of health!

    hi Margarita…just checking. you firstly say drink it through the like you would normally do but then at end you say ” i personally drink 250 ml per day. That is only 1 glass. Could you explain. thanks, Jo

    • Margarita

      Hey Jo,

      Just seeing this comment, apologizing.

      Now, I may drink up to a litre per day.

      I said 250 ml because that’s the amount that was convenient for me – due to being lazy making more shungite water 😉

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Have a beautiful day!

    Do you need to only drink Shungite water in order to receive the benefits? Or can you alternate between shungite and tap/other filtered water?

    • Margarita

      Hi Brie,

      The more shungite water you drink the better.
      You can certainly alternate.
      I drink filtered water when out of shungite water and for cooking/tea.
