SOLVE IONIC IMBALANCES
WITH NATURAL CRYSTAL SALTS
Written by: So Well
People are becoming increasingly concerned about the poor quality ofair that they breathe within office buildings, motor vehicles, and even their own homes. In fact, the EPA notes that levels of air pollutants indoors are typically many times that of outside air, even in smoggy cities. Not only are we exposed to toxic fumes produced by synthetic carpets, electronics and paints, but a sizable portion of the air molecules are positively charged (meaning that they lack an electron). These so-called "positive ions" have been shown to cause stress, headaches, lethargy, and temporary depression.
Their chemical opposites -- termed "negative ions" -- neutralize positive ions, and thus help to clean the air and reduce those health problems. Moreover, frequent exposure to the negative ions can dramatically increase an individual's energy, mental alertness, and overall sense of well-being. For many years, people suffering from asthma and other symptoms have gained tremendous relief from underground asthma treatment (speleotherapy) in salt mines, where negative ions are plentiful.
The most convenient and environmentally friendly way to feel these healthy ions is to take a walk in the park, in the woods or to the sea. Wearing natural fibers and sitting away from the computer as much as possible. To add these healthy ions to your own environment, is to use natural crystal salts, including those that have been crafted into lamps, which generate even more negative ions as a result of the light and heat exposure.
The beautiful crystalline structure of ancient salt deposits is a result of their constituent minerals drying under intense pressure, not unlike diamonds. But salt crystals are far more colorful, ranging from light shades of pink, yellow, and orange, to the more intense hues of dark red, deep blues and lavenders. Not only do people find the light of natural salt lamps to be quite soothing, but the negative ions given off by the lamps are the same wonderful ions we smell in the air after a thunderstorm. These ions have a refreshing and energizing effect, helping to purify the air and thereby benefit the people and pets breathing that air.
These types of lamps are being used world wide in holistic spas and medical treatment centers. The most common types of disorders treated are breathing problems, such as asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, and various allergies.
The very best salt crystals are those that are mined in an ecologically responsible manner, and crafted by dedicated artisans into attractive and safe lamps that can be used indefinitely. Suchlamps have been tested and verified to release ions, even when notlit. They produce the same wonderful ions that we feel after a thunderstorm and when standing close to a natural waterfall. Eventhough the crystal salts and ions themselves are odorless, people canreally feel the difference breathing the energized air. These lamps are a natural alternative to man made machines and offer a radiant and healthy light that can be used in every room of the house and office safely.
