What Himalayan salt lamps are made of
Himalayan Salt Lamps are made out of pieces of Himalayan salt crystals. They are a very nice decor feature for any room, however their real value is in their ability to balance the Electromagnetic Radiation in a room. When the lamp is turned on, the chunks of salt produce negative ions, which produces positive effects on indoor air. For this reason placing a Himalayan salt lamp in every room can be very beneficial for your health.
Why you need one in every room
Household and office electronics like televisions, cell phones, computers and tablets release positive ions into the air constantly. Since electronics are used constantly in everyday life, there’s often an overflow of electromagnetic radiation (EM), which, although not visible to the eye, is believed to cause some serious long-term, negative health effects. Constant exposure to EM radiation is known to cause fatigue, increase stress and weaken the immune system. Since Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions and cancel out positive ones they provide balance. By neutralizing electromagnetic radiation, they help reduce artificial frequencies and even prevent static buildup.
How Himalayan salt lamps can keep your airways clean
Studies have found that the little hairs inside the windpipe called cilia have decreased activity when exposed to positive Ions. These cilia act like tiny air filters keeping foreign particles out of the lungs. This is a major factor in immunity. Negative ions have a stimulating and positive effect on cilia. One more reason to use Himalayan salt lamps as a health precaution, by keeping the lungs and airways clean.
what is hygroscopy!!!???
Himalayan salt lamps also clean the air through a process called hygroscopy, as contaminated water particles are attracted to the salt crystal. This same process will remove cigarette smoke, dust, mold, mildew, airborne germs and other things that are floating around contaminating the airspace. This is an amazing benefit for people who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other breathing conditions.
Himalayan Salt Lamps Make You Feel Better
Spending time close to a salt lamp can increase the levels of chemicals serotonin and tryptophan in the body. As these are both associated with regulating mood, salt lamps have been attributed to easing symptoms of anxiety and depression.
They create a warm atmosphere
Aside from the health benefits, they bring a warm, relaxing glow to any room and create an extremely soothing atmosphere.
