The Positive Effects of Negative Ions

The Positive Effects of Negative Ions

by Sarah on January 13, 2009

My Himalayan salt rock lamps just arrived, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! In addition to their striking appearance and fond memories they trigger (in me, anyway), the heat from the light releases negative ions into the surrounding atmosphere.

I know what you’re probably thinking – who needs more negative in their life? Actually, in relation to ions, we all might. Negative ions, or anions, are actually a misnomer – they have many positive effects on humans (and plants), including improvement in allergies and respiration and even Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Nature creates negative ions naturally, and you can find especially high concentrations of them in places like Niagara Falls. The negative ions neutralize the positive ions in the air (again, a misnomer – positive ions do not equal good!) caused by dust, allergens, EMF pollution, and more. Do you ever feel sleepy or find yourself losing large amounts of time in front of a computer? Try placing a negative ionizer next to it and see what happens.

I keep one at home and one at work. Additionally, the ionizing lamp promotes the flow of Chi in your home (if you follow Feng Shui) and can enhance meditation, concentration, and relaxation too.

So the next time you’re feeling down, know it’s ok to ‘fight fire with fire’!

Where did you purchase the salt rock lamps from? I think it would be awesome to get one!

I just ordered mine online – but you may be able to find them locally. When we were down in Hilton head island last summer is the first time I learned about them. I walked into a holistic health shop and there was one on display. I was drawn to it instantly. It gives off a very warm glow. You will love it!

Can you post the link so I can check them out?

Very interesting, I’m already planning on getting one, or more.

Thanks for following me on twitter and turning me on to your site, looks pretty decent. Alas you unfollowed me for some reason and blocked me from following you… just minutes afterwards. Strange!
