Every cell in your body is intricately connected. Health issues such as depression, hormone imbalances, unhealthy gut, and chronic fatigue could have all been part of developing cancer. Therefore, mending them could be part of your strategic plan to heal cancer and enjoy vibrant health! Shilajit is an ancient mineral-rich resin that has been used in Ayurvedic healing for over 3,000 years. While the world of Western medicine has a lot of catching up to do in regard to double-blind and peer-reviewed clinical trials, I’m excited to share current Shilajit research and use cases.
With the reputations such as “the destroyer of weakness” and “conqueror of mountains” and being a staple of traditional and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years—it warrants a full blog post. Join me in exploring Shilajit’s incredible healing properties and the numerous ways it can enhance your well-being.
As always, please never try anything new before discussing it with your medical team and Breast Cancer Conqueror Coach because Shilajit may not right for every wellness warrior.
The History of Shilajit
Shilajit was first recorded in Sanskrit text over 3,000 years ago. It has been healing people ever since as part of Ayurvedic medicine. This blackish-brownish resin looks like tar goop. It comes from layers of rock found in several mountain ranges worldwide, including the lush and forestry Altai, Himalayan, and Tibetan mountains. When the temperatures rise, this medicinal substance oozes from crevices within the mountains. Over centuries, it slowly develops from the decomposition of plants. Thanks to modern technology, you can conveniently digest it via capsules, powder, and liquid forms. It can also be delivered to your door in days.
What Is Shilajit?
This remarkable mineral substance can help you tap into vibrant health benefits ranging from enhanced energy to increased longevity. The most beneficial aspect of this wonder substance is its high amount of antioxidants and fulvic acids. Antioxidants protect your body against free radicals that cause cellular damage that could lead to cancer and a long list of other health issues. Please learn more about antioxidants via these blog posts.
Fulvic acids are minerals that help your body detox and provide anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial benefits. They are formed when plants and other organic matter break down. Improved skin quality, boosted gut health, and interrupting the progress of brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease are just a few reasons why people incorporate fulvic acids into their daily life.
Some of Shilajit’s Health Benefits
Aging: The large percentage of fulvic acids in Shilajit may increase longevity and vitality.
Alzheimer’s Disease: The fulvic acid in Shilajit may prevent the accumulation of tau protein buildup in your brain. While tau proteins are an important part of your nervous system, too much of it clogging your brain may lead to damaging brain cells.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Shilajit may give you more energy by naturally boosting your body’s mitochondrial function, the part that helps your cells produce energy. This benefit is still in the works since studies have only been done on rats.
High Altitude Sickness: Hypoxia, acute morning sickness, insomnia, lethargy, loss of appetite, and high altitude cerebral edema are a few symptoms that are caused by someone quickly going from a low to a high altitude. Shilajit can act as a “health rejuvenator” for high-altitude-related problems. It does this by helping your body handle high-altitude stress and boosts your immune system.
Infertility: Shilajit can help increase male sperm count and motility. Mobility refers to sperm being able to move adequately, which is important for fertility.
Shilajit & Breast Cancer
Clinical research is just now starting to scratch the surface of Shilajit’s benefits, specifically for breast cancer. Of course, Shilajit’s anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial benefits greatly help improve your overall health, making for a better healing journey. And now we can add anti-cancer to the list. This exciting new study shows that Shilajit (Mummy, another name) induces cancer cell death and inhibits metastasis pathways in human breast cancer cells! However, the study mentions more research is needed to find specific details of how this works. As always, I will keep you up-to-date via this blog. Stay tuned!
Enjoy the journey! I have personally tasted and tested this interesting mineral and fulvic acid concentrate. Be aware of cheaper versions out there as they may contain some toxic metals. The company that I have investigated and tested their products on my body is Panacea Pure Shilajit Tablets.
