Himalayan Salt Lamps
These beautiful lamps
come attached to a wooden base and the
light bulb and 3-foot long cord with on/off switch are all included. Each one is unique in size, shape and even in color.
Benefits of Salt Lamps
A series of scientific studies show that salt crystal lamps can
increase the negative ion count by up to 300%! In Nature negative ions are created by wind, sunlight, surf
waterfalls and rainstorms. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen.
A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost its electrons in polluted air. In fresh country air we
find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter - the size of a sugar cube. Near strong surf or close to a
waterfall up to 10,000 negative ions can be found, however the number of negative ions in major capital
cities at rush hour does not even reach 100
The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally, it was found
to speed recovery in burn or asthma patients, but was later discovered to affect serotonin levels in the
bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and positively impact our reactions to sensory stimuli. The greater
level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved will being and enhanced human performance
on mental tasks.
Ionized air also substantially reduces the number of airborne
bacteria indoors. Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of
California, found that an amazingly small number of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them
out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.
Salt Lamps are not medical devices. However, by emitting negative
ions, they can reduce a number of indoor air pollutants. Negative ions have many known benefits, including
providing relief from sinus, allergies, hay fever as well as migraine headaches, reduce the severity of
asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration,
increase lung capacity and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.
