What Are Salt Crystal Lamps And How Do They Work?
There has been a recent surge from traditional western medicine into a holistic approach for dealing with health problems or diseases. For instance, the ancient custom of Chinese practicing acupuncture is now a recognized profession since the late 1990’s. Another form of fighting diseases naturally comes from salt crystal lamps. This is also a widely understood Pakistani holistic approach to keeping your body healthy although this technique was developed in the 21st century.
The Himalayan crystal salt lamps actually have been said to help improve chi or qi inside the body. The ancient Chinese people believed that the chi was central to the body being able to handle pain. A salt lamp is also known for reducing allergens in the air as well as reducing seasonal affective disorder. The lamps support the immune system while boosting serotonin levels in the body. Improving mental alertness and promoting a healthy well-being are all attributes that come from salt crystal lamps.
Basically, how a salt lamp works is that the crystal lamps are natural ion generators. Once the lamps are on they emit negative ions which combat the positive ions that are being released into the atmosphere from our daily lives. Positive ions are distributed from everything from the television we watch, the light we switch on and even closer to our bodies by the cell phones that we use.
The negative ions released from the lamp help to neutralize the positive ions that are released. When our bodies are exposed to positive ions all the time we tend to feel lethargic and depressed because the energy levels are lessened in our bodies. The heat from the lamps generates moisture in the air and the salt and the humidity combine to make negative ions and are released through the heat.
The Himalayan crystal salt is known to be over 250 million years old however, just recently used to combat electrons in the air. Recently being referred to as the last 100 years that is. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and even scents that can be emitted from them depending on how they were produced after expulsion.
