Do you suffer from allergies? Do you have a lot of static electricity in your house? Do you sit in front of a computer monitor much of the day? Are you working under fluorescent lighting? Many things in our homes and work generate an over abundance of positive ions also known as electric smog.
All our wonderful electric devices that make our lives easier at the office and in our homes are creating problems for our health. Computer terminals, fluorescent lighting, forced air ventilation systems and some modern building materials generate a huge amount of harmful positive ions, also known as electric smog. This smog deteriorates the condition of air, which hazardously affects our physical and emotional state.
Using salt lamps can make a big difference in the way you feel. There have been scientific studies to prove that once the salt in the lamp is heated by the bulb, negative ions count can go up as much as 300%. The salt lamps are beautiful, maintenance free and a natural alternative to improve air quality.
Negative Ions are responsible for strengthening the functions of autonomic nerves, improves metabolism, strengthen the bodies immune system, cleans the air of dust and molds along with bacteria and pollen. The salt lamp helps to relieve tension and improve sleep. If you are suffering from asthma by adding negative ions to the air you can help remove the airborne pollutants.
The salt in the lamps are from the Himalayan Mountains and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You will want a lamp with a UL listed cord and the bulb can be as small as a night light bulb. The lamp remains on twenty-four hours a day and as the salt is warmed it emits the negative ions. This is a great idea to put in a childs room. It gives off a soothing glow which induces relaxation and sleep as well as works for a night light.
Salt lamps are a wonderful addition to your home and they have been used for their health benefits in many other countries for years. The lamps are easy to take care of, of course you want to follow the directions for each lamp. Keep in mind that each room in your home may need more then one lamp for the best effect. A rough rule of thumb is one pound for every ten square feet.
