Himalayan Natural Rock Salt Lamps – Part 2

Today I wanted to expand more about my Himalayan rock salt lamp. Ever since I put one in my mother’s bedroom, I’ve noticed she has slept better, snored less, and even minimized her consistent coughing. And she has been coughing for a while now. I don’t believe it’s all placebo, as I have used the same lamp and woke up feeling very refreshed as well as having more vivid dreams. The brochure that came with the lamp also mention other benefits, such as help with insomnia, depression, and S.A.D. But the main reason behind the benefits of salt rock lamps is to help purify the air naturally.

When the rock salt lamp heats up, it produces negative ions. At first you would think it’s a bad thing because of the “negative” part of the description. But negative ions are actually good for you. According to WebMD website, negative ions are “odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments.” The article can be read here. Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C. says, “Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.”

There are immense amounts of negative ions in the mountains, the countryside, pine forests, around the beach and near waterfalls. These negative ions brings oxygen to your brain, lift your mood, and boost your immune system. Columbia University studies of people with winter and chronic depression show that negative ion generators relieve depression as much as antidepressants. They also help lessen depression and cure Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). So this is possibly the reason we feel so refreshed and happy after a day at the beach.

But if we are not as lucky to live near the ocean, we can now put one of these Rock Salt lamps in our homes and office. They are much cheaper and neater then purchasing a negative ion generator . The more I learn about this rock salt, the more interesting it becomes. What is better than not having to take tons of medication just to feel better? There are some handmade soaps with Himalayan rock salt available for sale as well. I think my next stage will be to try to find some Himalayan Salt and add them to my own handmade soaps. The Himalayan salt contain 84 trace minerals, more then any other salt. They include magnesium, potassium, bromide, and calcium. And these are readily absorbed into the skin.  Supposedly the trace elements are so small your cells can easily absorb them.  I am williing to give it a try.

    That’s very interesting about your mom’s situation. S is a big fan of something similar to this, does he also have one?

    Hi Gina,
    I did get S one of these lamps for Christmas – a large one. I find most people who are into “spiritual and alternative health” like the lamp very much. The large ones were selling fast too.
