Himalayan pink salt lamps are lamps that absorb water and particles from the air, it takes positive ions with them. When the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air, it expels negative ions that will have the opposite effect on our airways Cilia (microscopic, hair-like structures that extend outward from the surface of many animal cells and are important in the cell cycle and replication, and cilia play a vital part in human and animal development and in everyday life) increasing activity to keep your lungs clear.
These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, have special properties and high mineral content. The heat from the bulb in the lamps cause the salt to emit the negative ions which bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them. The newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation.
The negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home. Symptoms of asthma, allergies and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products as they cleanse the air naturally.
Ionized air also substantially reduces the number of airborne bacteria indoors. Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishing small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.
Even though they are not a “medical device”, Salt Crystal Lamps, by emitting negative ions, significantly reduce a myriad of indoor air pollutants. Negative ions have known benefits which may provide relief from sinus migraine headaches, allergies and hay fever, they may reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity, and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.
