How To Use Himalayan Salt Lamps For Better Sleep and Mental Clarity

Most of us have probably seen or used the Himalayan rock salt in our home for cooking purposes. And we know of its immense health benefits in reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. But, there are also some other benefits of this salt which can improve usual health problems like headache, insomnia  allergies and so on.

We all know the harmful effects that the wireless world of today can cause. But do we know how they harm us? All the wireless mobile equipment that we use releases certain positive ions into the environment creating electronic smog, which cause great harm to our health. They can cause cancers too.

Positive ions do not cause any positivity, in fact, it’s the opposite. Insomnia, allergies, mental health problems are just a few of the problems. This happens because our brain is exposed to 20 times more amount of electronic smog than what it can handle. It has become very necessary in today’s lives to neutralize these positive ions.

What can neutralize positive ions? Negative ions, of course. Opposites attract each other. The inedible Himalayan salt is the source of these negative ions. The negative ions released attaches itself to positive ions in its surroundings like dust, mould, irritants, allergens and the electronic smog. They are then neutralized. The air around us becomes fresh and pure. We feel an aura of positivity and freshness around us. It would seem like you have just visited a beach or a waterfalls. Your environment becomes lovely.

With its delicate pink, rose-like color, Himalayan salt is visually distinctive and prized for its purported nutritional profile as it contains a high number of essential minerals.

Sea Salt and Detoxification

Himalayan salt has been used to help detoxify the body in the form of a brine treatment. Most commonly done in the form of a bath, brine baths purport to detoxify the body through osmosis. As the sodium binds the water to the outer layer of your skin, moisture is preserved. Toxins are released from your body, while your skin absorbs the healthy minerals from the sodium into your body. It is recommended that the brine bath be as close as possible to normal body temperature, around 97 degrees Fahrenheit, and that you use 2.2 lbs. of Himalayan salt for approximately every 26 to 32 gallons of water.

Sodium

As a natural source of sodium, Himalayan salt provides an essential mineral for healthy bodily functions. Sodium helps to regulate blood volume and thus blood pressure, as well as helping to control muscle contractions, nerve transmissions and heart functions. Sodium can be found naturally in a number of foods, but it can also be consumed as added salt, as in the case of Himalayan salt. The daily recommended amount of sodium to be consumed daily is between 1500 mg and 2300 mg, for men and women between the ages of 9 and 50.

Mineral Content and Consumption

Himalayan salt is widely touted for its mineral content, containing 84 minerals in total. In addition to sodium, Himalayan salt is relatively high in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and chloride. It also contains traces of boron, fluoride, iodine, zinc, selenium and copper, all of which are necessary for bodily health. As a naturally occurring salt, Himalayan salt contains all these minerals without chemical processing or refinement. Because it is harvested naturally, Himalayan salt’s mineral benefits are available regardless of what form the salt is consumed as. Himalayan salt is most commonly found as coarse grains, fine grains, or large blocks which can be used as serving platters that delicately “season” the food they serve.

Put on the Lights

How do we use it? You have to buy a Himalayan salt lamp first. It consists of a salt with a bulb which supplies light. The bulb also heats up the salt, releasing the negative ions. In a humid environment, the salt may appear wet because the salt attracts moisture from the environment. But the heat of the bulb makes it evaporated easily. All the positive ions are neutralized and removed.

The benefits are immense. It can relieve headaches, migraines, arthritis, respiratory illness, blood pressure problems and stress-related problems. You are refreshed like you just visited a beautiful scenic location.

Stay Positive

Most importantly, you feel relaxed, cool, calm and composed. The whole environment around you fills with freshness and positivity. Your day goes well. You feel happy and safe. These salts obtained from ancient oceans are meant to improve your lives in all possible ways. Do not ignore to keep it in your homes and light it up in your own little way.
