Himalayan Salts & Lamps
In contrast to your everyday or normal bath salts the Himalayan salts allow the salt to be stored in the upper callus layer of the skin and binds water. This then actually maintains a natural and protective film on the skin and the skin does not dry out. This is the reason why these salt baths are so good for dry skin, but any skin type can benefit.
The cleansing effects of a 30-minute Himalayan Salt bath equal that of a three-day fast. The toxins are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin. This reduces the acidity in our body and balances the pH factor of our skin.
Himalayan Salt Lamps
Europeans have been aware of the Health Benefits of salt for generations, and people suffering from chronic congestive problems go to clinics located in salt mines for treatment! It’s called SPELEOTHERAPY. The very dry, negative ion-rich environment of these salt mines helps to clear out the patients’ bronchial tubes and sinuses, and to kill bacteria and other microbes.
A series of scientific studies have shown that salt crystal lamps can increase the negative ion count of the air we breathe by up to 300%. Although salt lamps are not considered medical devices you will find them in many therapy rooms as they have been shown to significantly improve both physical and mental health and offer relief from anything from allergies like hay fever to sinus problems, headaches, asthma attacks and help our lung capacity and reduce our susceptibility to colds and flu.
The health benefit and reactions by lung disease patients,asthmatics and allergy sufferers is astonishing to say the least. When salt lamps are turned on,the light bulb heats the pure salt,which causes the salt to release what are called negative ions.These negative ions are released into the air and surround the lamp.Negative ions are very healthy for us and provide a long list of health benefits. *When the salt lamps are switched on the release of the negative ions counteract unhealthy positive ions,which are released from televisions,computer monitors,microwave ovens,vacuum cleaners,heaters,cigarette smoke.The contract between negative ions and positive ions neutralize the ions to no longer a threat to our health. *Reduces allergy symptons and Asthma sufferers. *Encourages better sleep-salt lamps are commonly placed beside the bed and they eliminate the positive ions while people sleep-able to breathe easier and therefore enjoy more restful sleep.
