Do you feel stressed and tired too often through your life due to working on computers daily for too long? Just know that this is normal due to the electromagnetic field a computer, and every electrical device, creates around it which is the main culprit of the symptoms of tiredness, stress, low concentration, insomnia and other related health problems.
There have been tons of solutions all around the web to work around this critical problem, and most of them just suggest things like: drinking water, having a 10 mins break every 45 minutes, walk everyday for at least 30 mins, train your eyes, and so on.
Here, the solution we offer is totally different, and has been so positively effective on the overwhelming majority of users who tried it. This innovative solution is a natural Himalayan rock salt lamp.
There is a model that works on USB power cable [Check it out] and is made especially for those who need a quick portable salt lamp solution to take with them everywhere.
What are Salt Lamps?
Salt lamps are simply large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside. They can be solid pieces of salt or decorative baskets filled with large crystals of salt.
It is important to make sure that the lamp is from a pure Himalayan Crystal source and not a cheap imitation made from rock salt.
Himalayan salt lamps are made from pure, food grade, himalayan salt crystals and can even be powdered to use as salt in recipes if needed.
The Health Benefits of Rock Salt Lamp
You don’t know what you’re missing if you’ve never owned a Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp. It’s like having an open window – a softly glowing natural source of fresh, clean air – on your desk, in your living room, next to the bed, or anywhere you choose to put it.
Before we dive into the health benefits of using Himalayan pink salt lamps in your home, it may be helpful to first have a brief chemistry lesson:
With this basic understanding of the behaviors of positive and negative ions fresh in your mind, let’s take a look at the top 10 benefits of the Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp.
Here are 10 health benefits of using this type of lamps:
- Cleanse & Deodorize the Air
- Reduce Allergy & Asthma Symptoms
- Eases Coughing
- Increase Energy Levels
- Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation
- Better Sleep
- Improve Mood & Concentration
- Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder
- Reduce Static Electricity in the Air
- Environmentally-Friendly Light Source
The importance of negative ions…
Salt lamps are natural negative ion generators. At any given time, there are both positive and negative ions in the air. As a flashback to freshman science:
Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or at the beach.
Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air.
The unique combination of salt and a light source in salt lamps are what cause the negative ions. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning that it attracts water to its surface and this water evaporates quickly due to the small amount of heat from the light source (this is also why salt lamps tend to sweat and appear wet in humid climates). The negative ions are generated during the evaporation process.
Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by negative ions.
WebMD explains some of the benefits of negative ions in the air:
Places like waterfalls and beaches where negative ions are naturally produced can have a negative ion concentration of up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter whereas busy cities can have negative ion levels as low as 100 ions per cubic centimeter.
How to Use
It is possible to buy machines that create negative ions, but I’ve found that salt lamps are more natural and very effective alternative.
Better use salt lamps often in your home, and especially in winter months when it isn’t possible to have the windows open or to spend as much time outside.
Have now a solid salt lamp or a basket lamp in each room of your home and you’ll certainly love them for their ambient glow and their negative ions.
