I recently purchased a Himalayan Salt lamp to reduce EMF (Electromagnetic fields) exposure and to help with getting restful sleep which are two very important things in trying to heal from any chronic illness. We are exposed to constant electromagnetic fields from tv’s, microwaves, cell phones, tablets, laptops, you name it. Our bodies do not get a break in this technology driven world.
What do EMF’s do to me?
They stress the immune system and inhibit healing. They break your DNA strands, create stress hormones, weaken the blood-brain barrier, disrupt cell functioning, clog your detox pathways in the body. Our bodies were not designed for this type of constant exposure.
So what does this lamp do to help that?
In forests, the dense trees create an oxygen-rich environment, and near oceans and waterfalls, the cool salt breezes are highly charged with healthy negative ions that feed our cells. That’s why we always feel we can breath better and feel more relaxed and alive in those calming environments. While we cannot always be near a forest or the ocean, we can duplicate some of their benefits by bringing natural elements into our indoor environment.
Himalayan salt lamps are hand excavated so you only get high quality, fair trade products imported from the foothills of the majestic Himalayan Mountains where these ancient salts are dried and crystallized from the oceans. They’re not only beautiful to look at, but they are natural air ionizers and purifiers.
How Do Salt Lamps Actually Ionize?
Salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. They are “hygroscopic,” which means that they attract airborne water molecules (humidity), which is a natural property of sodium chloride. Since they do not generate the negative ions, they need a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) to accelerate evaporation, which does produce negative ions. It is this evaporation that generates the negative ions, which are beneficial to our health.
Salt lamps last indefinitely, and they never lose their ability to generate negative ions or help mitigate EMF fields, and require only the replacement of 15-watt bulbs to keep their power and beauty for a lifetime, making them as affordable as they are attractive and functional.
Where To Use Them
Try it next to near your bed and breathe easier and get deeper, restful sleep. Harness its ability to combat EMF pollution by placing one next to your computer or tv. Try one or more in your office, kitchen, living room or any bedroom. Or group several together for a dramatic accent that benefits, beautifies and lasts a lifetime.
