When negative is positive: The impact of negative salt ions on health and well-being 1200 800 INHALEUM

In today’s world, we are constantly surrounded by ions, both positive and negative. The pervasive electromagnetic radiation from computer screens, phones, and other devices, polluted air, and chemicals all contribute to an excess of positive ions, which negatively impact our health. At the same time, we are faced with a deficiency of negative ions, which are beneficial to our health.

How negative ions are created

Negative ions are formed when electrons are released from atoms and combine with oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the air. An electron carries a negative charge, and its combination with an air molecule creates a negative ion. These beneficial ions are naturally found near mountains, beaches, waterfalls, during storms, and even in your shower.

In addition to natural sources, however, negative ions can also be created artificially, such as through halogenerators. These special devices used during halotherapy grind salt into microscopic particles, which are then dispersed into the air in the salt room. These salt particles release high concentrations of negative ions into the air, which, when inhaled, have various positive effects on our health and overall well-being.

How negative salt ions enhance health and well-being

A negative ion-rich environment promotes health and overall well-being in several ways:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety: Inhaling air rich in negative ions during salt therapy has been shown to lower stress hormone levels and alleviate symptoms of depression.
  • Improved sleep: Struggling to fall asleep? Negative ions can enhance sleep quality and reduce snoring.
  • Increased energy levels: Negative ions boost oxygen flow to the brain, which is why you often feel energized after a salt therapy session.
  • Enhanced mood: When negative ions enter the bloodstream, they neutralize free radicals and trigger biochemical reactions that increase serotonin levels – the mood-regulating chemical.
  • Respiratory health support: Negative ions can ease breathing by reducing inflammation, widening airways, and facilitating mucus clearance. This is particularly beneficial for those with asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues.
  • Strengthened immune system: Negative ions in the salt environment bolster the immune system, helping the body combat bacteria, viruses, and allergens.
  • Skin regeneration: Salt particles that are not inhaled and remain on the skin help balance its pH and promote regenerative processes. Skin becomes firmer, and cell growth and microcirculation improve. Salt therapy can also alleviate symptoms of skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

Don’t neglect your health

Halotherapy is beneficial for overall well-being even in the absence of specific health concerns. Take charge of your health and well-being! Try salt therapy and discover a path to prevention and a healthier life.
