The Salt Sanctuary
What are the benefits?
Health and Wellness is one of the chief topics of discussion we are all subject to on a daily basis. In an industry plagued with misconceptions, how does one pick a starting point? We can all agree that a focus on our physical and mental well-being is paramount to the performance of our bodies and minds. We can notice it within days of quitting smoking, adopting an exercise routine, or making the switch to a healthier diet.
Himalayan Salt Lamps attract the moisture in the air, quickly heating it up to where it can evaporate. This adds an extra electron that causes a cleansing effect, resulting in a purifying atmosphere. Purified air increases level of blood flow to our brain, stimulating the production of serotonin, the feel-good monoamine neurotransmitter.
When we ‘purify’ the water we drink, we remove all the bad stuff. Unfortunately, this process also removes the trace minerals our bodies need. Insert Himalayan Sea Salt. This wonderful supplement contains 84 toxin-free minerals, which we can effectively reintroduce to our bodies either by ingesting or soaking in it.
By ingesting Himalayan Sea Salts we can combat acid reflux, aid in digestion, and support effective intestinal operation – all while balancing pH levels in our bodies.
Add a scoop of Himalayan Sea Salt to your bath. Relax. Allow the salts to naturally absorb into your body while detoxifying you and providing an unparalleled replenishing experience. Ironically, it adds moisture to your skin while you bathe! Imagine a powerful detox agent that leaves your body feeling both energized and refreshed. To add one more benefit, implementing it into your life through digestion will show you beneficial results within days.
How Does It Work?
IONS. We have all heard of them, but what do they do? There are two kinds of ions: negative and positive. Positive ions are light, capable of floating, carrying with them allergens, bacteria and even some molds. Negative ions cause positive ions to clump together (think of a magnet amongst a pile of metal shavings). This causes the cluster to become heavy enough to fall to the floor, thus neutralizing the problems they can cause.
In nature, we find negative ions in lightning, which is why we feel like the Earth has been cleansed after an electrical storm, particularly when combined with sunshine. Falling also produces negative ions, explaining how alert we feel after a morning shower. It is no coincidence that people rush to the ocean for a vacation, as the movement of the sea produces the same negative ions for us to bask in.
Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain: resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says 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.
“They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”
And for a whopping one in three of us who are sensitive to their effects, negative ions can make us feel like we are walking on air. You are sensitive to them if you feel instantly refreshed the moment you open a window and breathe in fresh, humid air.
