YOU HEAR THE BENEFIT OF “NEGATIVE IONS” A LOT WHEN IT COMES TO SALT LIGHTS BUT YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF WHAT NEGATIVE IONS ARE. HOW DOES THE SALT LIGHT WORK TO RELEASE THESE NEGATIVE IONS?
Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. But that’s not all. Not only do negative ions help our mood, they are also natural air purifiers.
Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that a small quantity of negative ions can kill bacteria and quickly remove them from the air thereby reducing the chance of infection. So Well Himalayan Salt Lights are an excellent source of negative ions. If you suffer from asthma, allergies, or immunity problems, our salt lights can give your entire system a boost. Himalayan salt is even strong enough to reduce mold, fungus, and other bacteria from your air, so that you can breathe – and rest – easy. By creating a balance of ions in the air, they stimulate natural drive and healthy energy.
Sounds great right? But how exactly is the Salt Light releasing these negative ions? The emission of ions is primarily caused by the alternating actions of the salt’s ability to first absorb water, and then evaporate it. When a light warms, it attracts water molecules from the air to its surface. Negative ions build up and are then released. Negatively charged negative ions help cleanse the air because they attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively charged. The larger particles formed by this interaction then fall to the ground, and out of the air we’re breathing. The ions cleanse the air of harmful dust, electro smog, bacteria and other toxins. As a result, the salt crystal light improves air quality and your body’s health.
WHILE LIVING IN A WORLD THAT IS ADVANCED IN TECHNOLOGY MAY BE CONVENIENT AND EXPANSIVE, IT MAY ALSO BE HARMING US WITH UNHEALTHY EMFS (ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS). SO WELL SALT LIGHTS CAN HELP MITIGATE THESE EMFS.
One of the issues nearly everyone faces today is exposure to EMFs, or electromagnetic fields. Actually, electromagnetic fields are essential to life on earth. An electromagnetic belt surrounds the Earth. Every form of life depends on this electromagnetic field of vibration, known as the Schuman resonance frequency. The Schuman resonance frequency states that the average resonance frequency of this belt—the resonance frequency of the earth—is 7.83 Hz (cycles) per second, which can be measured via EEG in the human brain.
The EMF of a typical television or computer monitor, however, is approximately 100-160Hz. The consequences of continuously exposing our bodies to these higher electromagnetic fields (EMF pollution) can cause nervousness, insomnia and poor concentration, as well as stress our immune system.
Crystal salt, in its neutral state, exhibits an exact frequency oscillation value of 8-10 cycles per second. The lit salt light therefore, reinforces the earth and our body’s natural resonant frequency, which helps combat the more harmful higher EMFs (100-160Hz) from computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.
