You do not know what you are missing if you have never had a Himalayan salt lamp. It is as if you have your window open continuously and a soft glowing natural source of fresh clean air enters your room.
Before we show you the benefits of having a Himalayan salt lamp, we first want to teach you a small chemistry lesson:
An ion is an electrically charged molecule. Ions can be both positive and negative. This is due to lack or surplus of one or more electrons. The atmosphere around the earth is always filled with positive and negative ions.
One of the disadvantages of inhaling the positive ions in the air is that the cilia (microscopic hairs) in the trachea pollute, they become slow and do not work so well to keep the contaminated particles out of our lungs. When the Himalayan pink salt lamp is on, it absorbs the positive ions. This will have a beneficial effect to keep your lungs clean.
Although the name suggests otherwise, positive ions create everything but positivity in your home. Positive ions mainly arise when using devices such as a microwave, vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, electric toothbrush or air conditioning. These devices cause a change in the air which hinders us during breathing and can cause us to cough or sneeze.
Positive ions can also contribute to stress, difficulty sleeping, migraine and asthma. Fortunately, there are also negative ions which can bring the positive out of balance so that the air becomes clean again.
Negative ions are created by beautiful natural phenomena. When you hear a waterfall, the breaking sea on the shoreline or a lightning bolt, our body loads and refreshes. Thunderstorms in – for example – a forest creates 10,000 negative ions per square meter, while only 100 negative ions per square meter is created during a thunderstorm in a busy city. This is a bizarre difference!
With this basic knowledge of the behavior of positive and negative ions we now show you which 10 benefits a Himalayan salt lamp can offer you. Look for this on the next page.
