SALT LAMPS FOR AIR PURIFICATION AND IONIZATION (TOPIC 3.1.1)
Scientific research has proven that the amount of ions in the environment, acceptable by the human, is ca. 1000 – 1500/cm3. And normally in closed rooms were electronic appliances are utilized and a few people work at the same time the amount of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm3.
Scientific research has proven that the amount of ions in the environment, acceptable by the human, is ca. 1000 – 1500/cm3. And normally in closed rooms were electronic appliances are utilized and a few people work at the same time the amount of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm3. The positive effect of negative ions can be experienced on a visit to the Salt Mines, by the sea, or walking right after a storm. Now you know how important it is to make sure that the harmful effect of electric smog should be reduced to a minimum in the rooms where we work. So to increase the number of negative ions in the environment, air ionizers are used. These air ionizers generate the negative ions and balance the atmosphere of the room.
Salt Lamps – made of a salt crystal are natural air ionizer that effectively boosts the number of negative ions in the room and reduces electric smog – concentration of positive ions. In salt lamps the ionization effect is additionally enhanced by heating the salt crystal with a bulb installed inside the lamp. As a result, the lamp improves the quality of our environment, and thus our well-being.
Many of us live and work in surroundings dominated by technology; computers, TV’s, copy machines, printers microwaves, air conditioners, heaters, just to name a few. These so called “conveniences” emit an excessive amounts of positive ions into the air we breath, which can result in mental and physical exhaustion and effect overall wellness.
The most DANGEROUS levels of positive ions occur in POLLUTED CITIES. Exhaust fumes from cars, trucks, and buses; factory smoke, cigarette smoke, dust and soot, and electro-magnetic pollution all combine to create a potent mixture of POSITIVE IONS and OZONE that gradually destroys our lungs and ruins our health.
Perhaps you have noticed that your feeling of well-being is intensified in pure mountain air, or at the seashore, near a waterfall or after a thunderstorm. This is due to the higher concentration of negative ions in these surroundings. It is no coincidence that healing spas are, as a rule, located in areas with foaming salt water or roaring mountain springs which generate plentiful negative ions which causes air particles to achieve electrical or ionic balance.
Negative Ions Vitamins of the Air? (TOPIC 3.1.2)
When certain kinds of winds begin to blow throughout the world, hospital admissions, suicides, and crime rates skyrocket. One country- Switzerland- even accepts the blowing of the “Foehn” during the commission of a crime as mitigating evidence in court..
For centuries people know about ability of Salt Crystal Rock to improve air qualities by enriching air with ” Negative Ions ” and ionized air beneficial to humans. Salt Crystal Rock and lamps made from Salt Crystal Rocks are natural air ionizers. Negative Ions produced by Salt Crystal Lamps effectively, and naturally improve the quality of the air by producing negative ions – the “Vitamins Of The Air”. High concentration of Negative Ions can be found in nature, concentrated in air by the billions; on Mountain Tops after Thunder Storms, near water falls, forests, and by the Sea. Negative Ions give the air its invigorating freshness, airborne bacteria free, clean which is so beneficial for humans.
When certain kinds of winds begin to blow throughout the world, hospital admissions, suicides, and crime rates skyrocket. One country- Switzerland- even accepts the blowing of the “Foehn” during the commission of a crime as mitigating evidence in court.
These “notorious” desert and sea winds are also linked to minor illnesses and malaise epidemics. Victims’ claims range from sleeplessness, irritability, tension, migraine, nausea, palpitations and hot flashes with sweating or chills, to tremor, vertigo, swelling, breathing difficulty, and frequent intestinal movement. In addition, elderly persons are affected with depression, apathy, and fatigue.
What causes these “witches’ winds,” as they’re often called, to differ from others? What do they possess or lack that make them a dread to the lands or oceans they blow across? Nothing more than an ambulance of invisible, minute particles with an imperceptive electrical charge- positive and negative ions.
According to the experts, positive ions rob us of our good senses and dispositions, while their stimulating everything from plant growth to the human sex drive.
In nature, ions are formed in a variety of ways. About half are created by radioactive gases. Radioactive substances in the soil, cosmic rays, ultraviolet rays, air flow friction, falling water and plants all produce the other half. For example, they stream off the leaves of plants, most notable pines and asparagus ferns.
Ions are apparently also created by the phenomenon of “subterranean suspiration.” As Fred Soyka, author of The Ion Effect, told the first Ions and Light Conference held this summer in Atherton, California. “Solar and lunar influences cause the water table to rise, forcing air out of the earth.” This prompted Federal Aviation Administration research psychologist, Bruce Rosenberg, to charge the earth with having “bad breath.” Being negatively charged, he said, “it breathes positive ions.”
Normally only about one atom in 100,000,000,000,000,000 is ionized, making a total of maybe 1000-2000 ions per cubic centimeter (that’s like a handful of planets floating in a circle 4 billion miles in diameter). These are usually balanced pretty evenly between positive and negative, with a slight edge toward positive. “However, the normal may not be the optimal,” Fred Soyka told New Realities. “On the seashore, where water is always falling, you have about 2000 negative to 1000 positive. That seems to be the ratio that human beings respond to most favorably.”
We have all experienced this positive effect, regardless of our proximity to waterfall or the ocean. Every home has a built-in, natural ionizer- the shower. Our daily bath rituals are, in effect, the practice of preventive medicine. Research has shown that falling water creates thousands of negative ions by splitting otherwise neutral particles of air, freeing electrons to manifest their vitalizing function. These electrons join up with smaller air particles, thus giving them a predominantly negative charge.
Waterfalls have always been the favorite habitat of mystics and artists. The inspiration and romance generated at places like Niagara Falls and Yosemite have a direct relationship to the lowering of serotonin levels in the blood, caused by the waves of negative ions from the spray of these falls.
Those notorious desert and sea winds mentioned previously raise the ion count, but over-balance the positive- up to a ration of 33 to 1 positive. As the winds blow through arid areas, they stir up dust and the neg-ions are leeched out. In Israel such winds are called the Sharav; in the Alps the Foehn; along the Mediterranean the Sharkiye (called the Sirocco in Italy and the Xlokk in Malta); in Africa the Simoon, France, the Mistral. There’s the Boras of the Adriatic, the Karaburan of the Gobi, the Zondi of Argentina, the Tramontana of Spain. In the U.S., the Chinook plagues the Rockies and the Santa Ana the southern California desert. Still other winds pos-ionize India and Australia. But whatever their name, throughout the world, they are known to blow no good.
One might postulate that the culprit is really humidity, wind or temperature changes, not positive ionization. That has been considered, but doesn’t account for the fact that weather-sensitive people react to the approaching Sharav 12 to 24 hours before meteorological instruments do. Positive ionization remains the culprit. So much for natural pos-ions.
The really lethal doses of pos-ions lie within our polluted cities, which William Radley, president of Bio-Environmental Systems, refers to as “ion prisons”. Car exhausts, factory fumes, tire dust, cigarette smoke, cooking and heating fumes, dust and soot gobble up neg-ions, either neutralizing or positively charging them. Inside, steel and concrete building act as electro-magnetic Faraday cages, absorbing the charges of negative ions. Synthetic building materials, clothing and furniture covering eat up more; so do the metal ducts covering heating and air conditioning outlets. The positive static charge of plastics takes care of the rest so that in a typical interior, the neg-ion count may be below 100 per cubic centimeter. (the minimal amount for optimum human functioning is about 1000/ccm.) In the words of Dr. William Rea, Chief of Surgery at Brookhaven Medical Center in Texas, “Houses don’t breathe like they used to.”
Several people have investigated the mechanisms of pos-ions debilitating effects. According to the Russian ion pioneer Vasil’yev, ions act on the endings of pulmonary afferent nerve fibers, altering the functional state of the central nervous system and through it, the peripheral organs. Sulman et al (1970) found that weather- sensitive people excrete more of the neuro-hormone serotonin than non-sensitive people. Serotonin is secreted by the pineal gland and the intestines. It affects sleep, mood, nerve impulses, blood-clotting and contraction of smooth muscles. LSD effects are caused by serotonin inhibitor and chronic serotonin depletion is characteristic of some types of mental anomalies.
Sulman’s work supports the findings of American ion dean Dr. Albert P. Krueger, who discovered that the specific negative ion of oxygen -O- speeds up the rate at which serotonin is oxidized in the bloodstream.
Krueger also found that pos-ions slow the sweeping action of the tiny hairs in our throats form 900 to 600 beats per minute and cut mucus flow, thus lowering our resistance to airborne allergens. For example, the pos-ion carbon dioxide (CO2) causes contracture of the back tracheal wall. Pos-ions also cause vasoconstriction and increased respiration rate.
Oddly enough, notes ion author Soyka, “About five percent of the population seems to react well to a positive charge. They feel euphoric.” If pos-ions are the bad guys, neg-ions wear white hats and shoot silver bullets. Their beneficial effect was first discovered in 1932 by Dr. C.W. Hansell at RCA Laboratories. Dr. Hansell was startled by the violent mood shifts of a co-worker who sat beside and electrostatic generator. He observed carefully and discovered that his colleague was ebullient when the machine produced neg-ions, morose when it made pos-ions.
Subsequent researchers (mostly abroad) have found that neg-ions reduce neurosis and anxiety, heighten appetite and thirst and stimulate sexual behavior. They improve performance of voluntary movements: 81.2 percent of drivers with neg-ion generators scored in the top half on reaction time. And in school they sharpen mental functioning and reduce error rates. After a year with neg-ion generators in their classrooms, a group of kindergarten teachers reported that their students concentrated better and showed almost no “weather effect”. Hyperactive kids were calmer, absenteeism was down (except on Mondays) and the teachers themselves felt less fatigued.
Neg-ions promote alpha brainwaves and increase brainwave amplitude, which translates to a higher awareness level. Neg-ion induced alpha waves spread from the occipital area to the parietal and temporal and even reach the frontal lobes, spreading evenly across the right and left brain hemispheres. All of this creates an overall calming effect.
On the physical side, they have given relief from hay fever, migraine and burn and post-operative pains. Along with the burn pain relief, they lessen infection, dry the burns faster, heal them more quickly and leave less scarring. After operations, not only did 57 percent of Dr. Igho Hart Kornblueh’s patients treated with large do ses of neg-ions (10,000/ccm) feel less pain (as opposed to 22.5 percent of controls), but restlessness and infection were also reduced and healing quickened.
But why are ions therapeutic? Partly because they kill germs. Back in the 1930s, a Russian team headed by A.L. Tchijevski found that large ion doses of either polarity retarded bacteria colony formation on plates. Ionization also sterilized enclosed air. Later experiments duplicating Tchijevski’s work noted an exponential bacteria decay rate of 23 percent per minute for untreated air, 34 percent per minute for air with pos-ions, and 78 percent per minute for negatively charged air. They concluded that the pos-ion decay rate was due to simple bonding of the ions with the bacteria, whereas the neg-ions actually killed them.
Interestingly, animals larger than microbes find neg-ions beneficial. Rats learn better and are less anxious. Mice live longer. (Mice with flu die more quickly if deprived of neg-ions.) Silkworms eggs hatch earlier, larvae grow faster, spinning begins sooner, cocoons are heavier. Chickens lay more eggs and grow more plump. Sheep grow faster and supply more wool.
And in the vegetable kingdom, plant seedlings grow up to 50 percent more when charged. Fruit stays fresh longer: after 10 days, ionized tomatoes were still fresh while untreated controls rotted.
Researchers offer a variety of reasons for ion effects. Dr. Krueger explains that plants benefit from both positive and negative ions because “ions expedite both the uptake of iron and its utilization in the production of iron-containing enzymes…. (and) stimulate the metabolism of ATP in the chloroplasts and augment both nucleic acid metabolism and oxygen uptake.”
In humans, most researchers think that neg-ions act on our capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen, accelerating the blood’s delivery of oxygen to our cells and tissues. Dr. R. Gualaterotti of the University of Milan says they make wider cell nuclei with more volume. The weight of evidence supports Krueger’s theory that ions break down serotonin in the bloodstream.
Lest negative ions sound too much like a cure-all, testers report that neg-ions work only so long as they’re being inhaled. As the charge is most readily absorbed through the olfactory nerves, you need to breathe them in through your nose, not your mouth. Dr. Krueger cautions that “the biological (non -clinical) effects produced by atmospheric ions are not dramatic; on the contrary, they tend to be limited in degree.”
But that’s atmospheric ions. Artificially generated ions are another story. Just as positive ions can be generated artificially by pollution, so can negative ions be man made- with negative ion generators. It’s true, you can’t plug in an ionizer at night and expect new muscles in the morning. But their effects are not always subtle. “People are allergic to the Twentieth Century,” says Bio-Environmental Systems President William Radley. “Our architects and interior designers are poisoning us. Some people are so sick or so intolerant of chemical that sometimes the results of ionization are quite dramatic.”
Since the 1950s, manufacturers have produced dozens of ion generators for laboratory and home use. Early machines ionized atoms and molecules via high-voltage electrical fields, incandescent materials, ultraviolet light, x-rays and alpha- or beta-radiation from the isotopes. The output of the electrostatic, incandescent, and ultraviolet generators tended to deteriorate rapidly. In addition, electrostatic and ultraviolet machines produced ozone, a toxic oxygen allotrope, as a by-product.
Dr. Krueger used tritium-based generators during the ‘50s. Tritium is a betaradiating hydrogen isotope with a half-life of 12.5 years. A minute amount of the gas is sealed in zirconium and deposited on a stainless steel foil. An electrical potential difference varying from 300 to 2000 volts DC is used to separate pos-ions from neg-ions before they recombine in the plasma. Tritium machines allow precise dosages, but unfortunately tritium is so dangerous that it’s illegal (except in fusion power plants). Thus, the tritium generators manufactured during this period were seized by the FDA.
During the 1960s, ion collectors drew air through an electrostatic field between parallel plates or concentric cylinders; the ions were collected on the plates. Present ion units apply a high-voltage electrical signal directly to the air to create an intense electric field around the emitters.
Why not set up a monster ionizer over Manhattan? Well, a safety dictates a size limit. Dr. Robert Massy of the University of the Trees reported at the Ions and Light Conference that, whereas a 5,000 volt machine produces less than .05 parts per million of ozone (the limit allowed by the FDA), extremely high-voltage units invariably fail to meet standards. Although most people in the U.S. are not ion-wise, generators have been popular elsewhere in the world for decades. In World War II, Luftwaffe planes were Negatively ionized by electric field generators, in order to reduce pilot fatigue. And it worked! (Electric field generators are like female ion generates: instead of ejecting ions, they attract them.) Germany and USSR use them in government buildings, hospitals, schools, factories, restaurants, health spas, beauty salons, homes, offices, cars and trucks. In Canada, Fred Soyka notes, “Ionization has become a household word. My book became a best-seller and innumerable articles have come out.”
The U.S. has equipped nuclear submarines with ion machines. Ionizers are being used industrially in auto spray paint booths, food processing plants, grain storage bins and chemical spray factories.
Architects and designers are beginning to see the health benefits from fountains and rooftops solariums placed in urban environments, echoing the wisdom of their forefathers in the Roman culture. The growing recognition of our biological needs amidst our artificial interiors is opening up whole new industries aimed at replicating nature indoors.
In addition, we could all take Rosenberg’s advice and wear underwear of polyvinyl chloride to attract neg-ions. From BVD’s to PVC’s then, it’s the negative ion generation.
Several machines are now in the market for home and office use ranging in cost from about $70 to several thousand dollars. You just plug them in and they ionize away. But, here are some considerations to keep in mind. If something or someone is between you and the generator, the ion count around you will drop. If you and the machine are in contact with the same dielectric material (as, for instance, if it and your arms are on the same desk), a charge will build up between you and it, and this charge will repel ions. (Supposedly this doesn’t happen with the latest machines.) Also, you own static charge will often repel ions, especially in dry, indoor wintertime air. Synthetic clothing absorbs ions: wear cotton or wool, which have neutral charges.
At the Ions and Light Conference, Fred Soyka told New Realities of some in-progress Swiss research on ion machine frequencies. Frequencies of 60-100 Hz (cycles/sec) are stimulating to a person, while less than 25 Hz are relaxing. “If you have 60-100 frequency machine,:” Soyka says, “you may have trouble sleeping well with it on. Manufacturers ought to look into machines with adjustable frequency ranges. Some European machines already modulate frequency, so people can dial their needs electrically.” A problem with ionizers has been determining their effectiveness. A typical generator may supposedly churn out 100 billion ions per second. But how many of them survive a yard past the machine? Ion counters do exist, but until now no store or salesperson selling generators has had one around. Inexpensive units are now on the assembly line. Ion counters must be used carefully: within a room the ion concentration varies a lot, depending on how far you are from the generator, from conducting wall, from charge buildup on insulating walls, from curtains or draperies.
Poor measurability partly explains why shoddy machines have been marketed (and confiscated by the FDA) in the past. Today, regrettably, the field is still not without its quacks. According to Bruce Sullivan, president of Environmental Sciences Corp. “Some people are selling generators for thousands. One company calls its machine The Air Doctor.”
Advanced technology has eliminated most problems associated with previous ion devices, and as such there are more on the market today. Moreover, it is now possible to create higher voltages with lower current, thereby reducing or eliminating the production of ozone (Federal law prohibits more than .05 parts per million ozone level). So to ensure that a device meets the buyer’s needs, one should carefully examine the manufacturer’s literature.
In addition, buyers should look for a warranty on parts and labor, including a description of the room size affected by the machine, and even a money-back trial period offer. A list of authorized service centers should also be provided to the consumer. So caution is still the watch-word since industry standardization has yet to be instituted, although industry standard for ion measurement and output are currently being drawn up by several manufactures.
The first call for some kind of industry standards was issued by ion pioneer Igho Hart Kornblueh back in 1961: “Standardization of the generating and metering equipment by an independent authority would terminate the hasty and regrettable trend to market ion generators of questionable safety, quality and output.” Today Fred Soyka echoes his words: “Measuring the sending capacity of these machines is very important. You should by able to say, like when you buy a 60-watt light bulb. I’m getting an ionizer of this and this capacity. And to correlate that to room sizes.”
A giant step was taken at the Ions and Light Conference, where the International Bio-Environmental Society was formed to set up standards and regulations within the industry. “We’ve already gone through our Inquisition on ionization,” said president Bruce Sullivan, “We don’t need another one.” The Association is building a box within which the ion output of different machines can be counted at a standard distance and humidity.
Ions have been around for eons. Science has had its eye on the ion for 80 years. But public ignorance, generally non-ionized interiors and lack of generator standards is the hallmark of a science and industry still in its infancy. Dr. E.R. Holiday thinks we know as much about air today as we did about food 70 years ago, when biochemists thought protein, fat, and carbohydrates were all we needed. Then a substance was discovered that prevented rickets: the first vitamin. Ions might well be, as Holiday suggests, “the vitamin of the air.”
CASE STUDY FOR NEGATIVE IONS & SALT LAMP(TOPIC 3.1.3)
Humans respond most positively to a ratio of 2 negative ions to 1 positive ion, but such a ratio is rare at best. Yosemite Falls has a negative ion count of over 100,000 per cubic centimeter. Fresh, country air has a negative ion count of around 2,000 to 4,000 per cubic centimeter. Los Angeles during rush hour has a negative ion count of around 100 per cubic centimeter.

Fresh, country air has a negative ion count of around 2,000 to 4,000 per cubic centimeter. Los Angeles during rush hour has a negative ion count of around 100 per cubic centimeter.
Various human activities and electrical appliances produce positive ions which are the reason for the deterioration of our physical and emotional well being; eg discharge of voltage in high-voltage networks, heating and cooling systems, TVs, radios, transmitters, radar systems, computers, exhausts and cigarette fumes. Scientific tests have revealed that the ratio of negative to positive ions should be between 1.02 to 0.98 and the air’s composition of negative ions should range between 1000-1500/cm’. Measurements have shown that the number of negative ions decreases to 200/cm’ in a closed room containing several people.
Salt crystal lamps can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%. In nature Negative Ions are created by means of wind, sunlight, surf, waterfalls and rainstorms. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen. A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost its electrons through process of air pollution.
Ionised air also substantially reduces the number of airborne bacteria indoors. Dr. Albert P.Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishing small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.
Speleotherapy or underground climatotherapy is an alternative treatment for asthma and other diseases used in Eastern Europe. It involves the patient spending 2-3 hours a day underground in subterranean caves or salt mines over a 2-3 month period. This rather old therapeutic modality without a scientific explanation seems to give some benefit to patients with asthma, allergies, insomnia, lung related diseases etc. These benefits are attributed to the negative ions generated by the salt in the mines
MORE POSITIVE IONS THAN IN THE PAST (TOPIC 3.1.4)

SALT CRYSTAL LAMPS ADD BEAUTY AND ENERGY (TOPIC 3.1.6)
Energy within crystalline salt from this planet’s primordial ocean; the very soup from which all life originated. Beautiful and wonderful for indoor air quality and ambience.
Energy within crystalline salt from this planet’s primordial ocean; the very soup from which all life originated. Beautiful and wonderful for indoor air quality and ambience, yet there’s more to share about our products! Yes, it gets better :).
” Feeling good ” – everyone wants it, correct? However, an increasing number of us are not feeling as we should. Modern life in this world tends to drain us of time and energy we need to remain balanced – with the imbalance due in large part to …you guessed it – life in this world . There is good news though…. ionic salt lamps
Himalayan salt crystal lamps increase the energy and vibration within a room. When a salt lamp is illuminated with a small light bulb or with a candleholder a warm, ambient glow is created – in colors ranging between red, orange, peach, apricot, to off-white; soothing and inviting to the eyes, without a doubt. The warmth of the bulb or flame accelerates the negative ion production while its light offers soothing to the senses.
in contrast, pure vibrational energy is formless and invisible. Yet everything at its essence is energy . We live our lives in a matrix, or web, of energy – an energy field . Everything known to the senses is energy….solid and tangible outwardly but on a deeper, invisible level it is pure energy. This is scientific fact and backed by quantum physics.
. Energy is contained within every thought and sensation
. Ideas are forms of energy.
. Success and failure constitute energy and the results of energy
. Our health is a matter of energy
. Illness is energy
. Lack of direction in life – energy
. Conflicts with other people – again, energy
This vibrating energy encompasses everything in existence. If you practice in experiencing this each day, it will become a reality for you
It is one thing to understand this conceptually and quite another to re-align our thinking to take advantage of this very dynamic situation that we find ourselves in. Use of Himalayan salt crystal lamps can add these good vibrations with inherent bio-photonic energy stored and crystallized for over 250 Million years.
Feng shui masters and connoisseurs have known about the special properties of salt crystal for ages; Ionicsalts’ salt lamps increase and enhance the “Chi” of any space. We’re nurtured by our surroundings, mentally and emotionally. We enjoy the the coziness of home and the escape from such stress and chaos that this world so often can bring. Whether we prefer our homes elegant, simple, chic, or even spiritual – we like them to express who we are. Spiritual surroundings can help soften the drain of rush hour, cell phones, meetings, and a 70-hour work schedule; and yes, even the stress of retirement – we all have those moments sometimes when we want to move to the Antarctica and live with the penguins!
Home decorating is seeing an emerging trend, spiritual décor ; which is aimed at awakening the spirit and soul we are all blessed with. Only recently have decorators and designers in North America and South America began to learn about and understand the value and usefulness of salt crystal lamps in this regard. Visually warm and pleasing, our salt lamps fit with virtually any style of furnishings and bring soothing energy and ambience – anywhere.
These aren’t simply chunks of rock salt with a light bulb or candle inside. This is very ancient, very special, and completely beneficial to your surroundings. Our salt lamps are attractive, meaning people are drawn to them and enjoy looking at them. We know this from experience in our office building. Natural ionizing ” sol ” magnets, in a way. See if your pets can tell the difference…I’m betting more than any human can.
FENG SHUI, SALT LAMPS, AND SALT CRYSTAL (TOPIC 3.1.7)
In order to understand how our salt lamps can benefit you in ways besides health, let’s touch on the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui . The term “Feng Shui” translates from the Chinese language literally into “wind water”
Manipulating the energy surrounding us all …..
In order to understand how our salt lamps can benefit you in ways besides health, let’s touch on the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui . The term “Feng Shui” translates from the Chinese language literally into “wind water”. Things we cannot see are represented by wind while things we cannot grasp are symbolized with water . Feng Shui can help bring harmony to this aspect of our lives, the “unseen”.
If you’ve read earlier pages in our site, you’ll know that acording to current physics laws and ancient Chinese philosophy, everything in physical existence is made of energy. We call this energy “Chi”, also literally translated means “breath”. Good chi is as essential to a positive, healthy life as the breaths we take each moment.
We are talking about the essential lifeforce of everything. Through proper placement of feng shui enhancers, a beautiful salt crystal lamp for instance, a person can create a balanced and harmonious level of sheng chi within their surroundings, even around their surroundings, and find themselves with a happier, healthier, wealthier life full of positive energy and motivational force.
Chi comes in two varieties – one good, one bad. The good type is Sheng Chi; the bad type is Sha Chi . The word Sheng translates as meaning “vital”, “life”; while Sha becomes “evil” or “deadly”. Many people are senstive to one or both forms of energy, and others are not aware of the presence either way.
Sheng Chi is held by beautiful items, places, even people. Beauty is pleasing to the eyes and adds comfort and sense of well-being. Of course, tastes vary and one person’s beauty is another’s fright but generally opinion gravitates toward the beautiful. Build a home in a beautiful, scenic environment and it will exude sheng chi. A clean, organized home that’s well-ventilated with ample lighting is also bathing in the “vital” energy. The people living in this house are enjoying good Feng Shui. They have more ennergy in work and in play….they feel better physically and mentally because of the Sheng chi which they surround themselves with.
On the other side of the coin, we have Sha chi belonging to ugly and bad things of our world. Uncomfortable in their presence and unpleasant to the eyes, by nature things of this sort are shunned and unpleasant. Living in a house near a landfill or dumpsite or an unclean home ridden with pests and bugs is bad Feng Shui. People living in these surroundings inevitably find themselves with more illness and horrible circumstances
Beside Air Ionization and Negative Ions production, Salt lamps Illuminated by a light bulb, also produce a beautiful, pleasant to the eyes, mind, and sole, natural Glow of different colors and shades from orange to yellow. This Light Color Glow and Ionized, Clean, Fresh Air create a special atmosphere of calming meditative balance, tranquillity, peace and well – being for humans.
FENG SHUI, SALT LAMPS, AND SALT CRYSTAL (TOPIC 3.3.1)

More than just a pretty salt lamp…
Science has only recently discovered the effects salt lamps and salt crystal can bring through soothing light and color – and with powerful negative ions. However, for ages humans have known of the positive effects of this salt, along with its cleansing and neutralizing effects on your health. Genuine Himalayan Crystal Salt is the most beneficial, most salt available on this planet. It was formed over 250 million years ago, when the light and energy of the sun dried up the original, primal ocean. This crystal salt is completely pristine and natural, identical in composition to that ancient sea. It also contains all 84 elements found within our bodies.
We are not referring to simple rock salt or table salt; because rock salt assumes a crystalline form doesn’t mean that it is of the superior quality that we have been talking about here. Elements within rock salt are not integral to the salt’s crystal grid, but instead cling to the outer surfaces and crevices of the crystalline matrix. This is the fundamental difference between rock salt and crystal salt. A salt crystal manifests a superior structure while rock salt is a cheap alternative to table salt – and is at least a natural, wholesome product.
There is no type of salt in this world that can compare to Himalayan salt crystal, including any of the many varieties of sea salt. .
In nature, negative ions are created through forces of rainstorms, waterfalls, lightning, sunlight, ocean waves, and wind. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter – the size of a sugar cube. Up to 10,000 negative ions can be found near heavy surf, or close to a waterfall. However the number of negative ions in metropolitan areas often doesn’t reach 100! Think about that next time you’re stuck in traffic.
Consider our salt lamps to get back the energy you’ve been missing
Several scientific studies show that salt lamps bind positive ions with their own natural negative ions. With the warmth of a light bulb or candle, they begin to attract humidity. This causes a field of ions to build up. Salt crystal lamps can also neutralize the electronic smog in a room caused by computers, TV’s, monitors, appliances, etc. . Additionally, the various colors of the lamp have positive effects. The therapeutic wavelengths of the colors of these crystals are visible to our eyes and affect reorganization of the epidermal skin tissue. These are also used in allopathic medicine for treating skin cancer. Furthermore, testing on young children diagnosed with ADHD (attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder) clearly indicate that use of salt lamps dramatically limits these symptoms after just seven days. Symptoms returned when the salt crystal lamps were taken away!
As many of us sit in front of televisions or computer monitors, we are bombarded with “electriconic smog”, an electro-magnetic frequency of around 100 to 160 Hz. (Hertz). Our brainwaves, however, vibrate at around 8 Hz.; a rate which is equal to the Schuhmann Resonance Frequency. In other words, while watching TV or working at a computer, our bodies are exposed to the vibration of frequencies 20 times faster than our brainwaves. The results are nervousness, insomnia, and lack of concentration. Moreover, this electromagnetic pollution causes the increased production of destructive, and often cancer-causing, free radicals.
