At My Healthy Bliss we are unabashed beach people. We love the ocean, and try to be near it every chance we get. Do you ever wonder why the sea side with it's crashing waves has such a blissfully peaceful and calming effect on you? Or have you ever stood near a waterfall and noticed this same calming effect? The huge volume of water going over the rushing waterfall or crashing in waves onto the seashore produces a tremendous amount of negative ions in the atmosphere which have incredible positive effects on our bodies.
Conversely, all of the many, many electronic devices in our homes and offices give off tons of positive ions, which make us feel sluggish and blah, at least and may have negative health consequenses at worst. And don't even get us started on the electromagnetic fields (EMF's) that all of our devices create.
Naturally, as is our usual modus operandi at My Healthy Bliss, when we heard about the many possible benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps, and some of them were pretty outrageous, we did what we always do: we researched, we read, we researched, we read some more, we researched some more. We read lots of positive opinions and studies and some negative ones. The bottom line? We feel that Himalayan Salt Lamps deserve a place in our every day detox regime.
There doesn't appear to be any argument that Himalayan Salt Lamps produce negative ions. Your salt lamp is not going to charge the atmosphere with as many negative ions as a waterfall, of course, but it does emit negative ions, and we figure some is always better than none.
There seems to be science to back the claim that the lamps purify the air, thereby reducing allergens and dirt in the air. The salt does attract and absorb water molecules in the air, trapping the contaminants the vapor carries in the salt. I wouldn't believe any one claiming that their allergies or asthma has been completely cured by a salt lamp, but for those of us with occasional allergies or breathing issues, anything that helps clean the air is always welcome.
We love our Himalayan Salt Lamps at My Healthy Bliss and one thing we can say for certain is that they are beautiful! Himalayan Salt Lamps impart a peaceful, lovely ambiance to any room with their serene pink glow. We keep them by our computers at home and on our desks at work, in every bedroom and kid's room, near our televisions and any electronics, and in the kitchen.
Himalayan Salt Lamps from My Healthy Bliss are just another step toward a healthier environment for you and your loved ones!
