This is What Happens to Your Lungs, Brain and Mood When You Get a Himalayan Salt Lamp
By Kat Gal
Have you ever heard of Himalayan salt lamps?
I hadn’t either until a couple of years ago, when a good friend of mine insisted that I help her find one.
I didn’t understand her sudden quest for this strange object, so I turned to my little helper, Google, to find out about the amazing benefits of this mysterious pink salt lamp.
Let’s begin with himalayan salt.
WHAT Is Himalayan Salt?
Himalayan salt is not just an ordinary salt. It has less sodium than regular salt and is considerably full of calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. Himalayan salt aids you in a number of ways, ranging from promoting healthy digestion to helping you lower your blood pressure, therefore also improving your cardiovascular health. Regular salt is FAR from this powerful.
This information alone is enough reason to use Himalayan salt when cooking versus any other salt.
But WHY use this salt as a lamp?
To make these lamps, large, crystalline chunks of this healthy salt are used. Believe it or not, having this pretty pink, salty illumination in your home can do an even greater amount of things for your overall health than just consuming it alone.
For instance, Himalayan salt lamps can help you with many commonly suffered conditions, such as:
- Blood disorders
- Skin problems
- Respiratory issues
You and I, just like all human beings and living things, are bioelectric in nature. You have particles that are electrically charged and therefore, affect the way you feel or behave. A balance between positive and negative ions contributes to your health, well-being, mental health and emotions, according to Assistant Professor, G. S. Rahi at Fayetteville State University.
Himalayan salt lamps help your body to create this balance.
Pierce J. Howard, PhD further explains that negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to your brain. This is incredibly beneficial to your health, because it leads to more mental energy and higher alertness. Imagine what you could do with all that energy?!
Himalayan salt lamps also protect you from germs in the air, leading to less allergies, irritations and sneezing. Of course, the lamps won’t clean for you… vacuuming still remains your job. Still, they can help you to keep your home healthy.
Best Places To Keep Your Himalayan Salt Lamps
It is also important for you think think about where you place these lamps. Don’t think only about decorating purposes, but rather, think about where their balancing effect would be the most beneficial in your life. Bedrooms are common locations, as well as living rooms and kitchens. If you are unsure or want to ensure full benefits, just decorate your entire place with them. Trust me, your body and your mind will thank you!
