Although Salt Lamps are not considered medical devices, they do provide health benefits. Also note: there are numerous studies that show positive benefits and other studies that show no benefits. Use your own judgement when purchasing a salt lamp.
- Clean and Deodorize the Air
Himalayan Salt Lamps purify the air by the power of hygroscopy. Hygroscopy is the scientific name for attracting water molecules from the surrounding air. The Salt Lamp absorbs these molecules and any foreign particles that they may be carrying. The water is evaporated back into the air, but the pollutants are trapped inside the salt. These pollutants often include mold, dust, allergens, smoke, pollen, and bacteria.
The negative ions produced by the Salt Lamps can provide an invigorating experience. Inside our houses and work places we are overwhelmed by positive ions. These positive ions drain our bodies of energy. Nature produces the most negative ions. This is why a walk outside for fresh air can feel energizing.
Try using a Salt Lamp in the room where you spend the most time. You should notice a difference in about a week.
- Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation
We are bombarded with EM (Electromagnetic Radiation) these days through our electronic devices. Computers, cell phones, tablets, and other appliances put out EM which in turn has a negative effect on our health. A Salt Lamp can effectively neutralize the effect of these devices and the long term effects on our health.
Another side effect of positive ions in the air is that it takes away our ability to have restful sleep. Positive ions can produce irregular sleep patterns by reducing oxygen and blood supply to the brain. A Salt Lamp can reverse this by producing negative ions that can help provide a more restful and natural sleep.
