ZENTASIA: “The Benefits Of Having Himalayan Salt Lamps In Your Home”

Himalayan Salt Lamps are carved out of the Himalayan salt mines and are natural negative ionizers and dehumidifiers.

The air around us is filled with electrically charged particles. Positively or negatively charged, they are called ions, continually occurring in the atmosphere. They must be kept in balance.

Negative ions are air molecules created naturally in lightning storms and rainstorms, next to waterfalls and near strong waves, by means of sunlight and wind; they are abundant in forests, in mountain areas and in proximity of water. This is why we feel energized in fresh country air or by a waterfall. Research conducted in the last decade concluded that negative ions have a positive effect on health like improving mood swings, relieving seasonal depression, fatigue, stress and headaches as they affect oxygen and serotonin levels in the bloodstream.

Dr Albert P. Krueger, microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, stated:

“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.”

However, the environment we live in today has far more sources of positive ions than in the past, creating an electrical imbalance in the air and in our bodies. We are exposed to 20 times higher frequency patterns than normal. Excessive positive ions are produced by the discharge of high-voltage networks, air conditioning, microwaves, TVs, radios, radar systems and computers.

The most dangerous levels of positive ions occur in highly populated and polluted cities. Exhaust fumes from cars, factory smoke, cigarette fumes, dust, radiation, as well as harmful chemicals, toxins and electromagnetic disturbances, all combined, create a potent source of positive ions that gradually build up and deteriorate our health. They can damage cells and are believed to be a major reason for an accelerated aging process and cancer.

To neutralize the harmful effects of excessive positive ions in our surrounding, putting a salt lamp in every room is highly advisable.

Himalayan Salt Lamp Benefits

1. Salt lamps are Natural Negative Ionizers: The heated salt crystal absorbs the water molecules from the ambient air and evaporates them, a process during which negative ions are released abundantly, creating a healthier, more balanced atmosphere.

2. Salt Lamps neutralize artificial electro-magnetic wavelengths produced by harmful electronic devices surrounding us that cause nervousness, insomnia and lack of concentration. They amplify the natural frequency of 8 to10 cycles per second in the human brain, which is the normal resonance synchronized with the resonant frequency of the planet’s electro-magnetic field (7.83 Hz or cycle per second) and stabilize alpha wave rhythms in our brain.

3. They are Natural Dehumidifiers: Salt is hygroscopic, naturally attracting moisture. It absorbs the excess humidity in any given room creating a dry environment, while killing bacteria and other microbes. Therefore, salt lamps help purify the ambient air, while eliminating bad odors in the process.

4. They beautify the surrounding as they create a relaxing atmosphere promoting stress reduction, better sleep and an overall sense of well being.

Numerous health benefits are gained from Himalayan Salt Lamps: they enhance the immune system, reducing susceptibility to colds and flu. Having them in your vicinity helps clear the sinuses, eases up migraines, headaches, allergies and hay fever. They improve lung capacity preventing respiratory-related illnesses and soothe asthma attacks. They increase alertness and productivity as well as concentration, healing fatigue and depression syndromes.

ALEX ‘EARTHIE MAMA’ DU TOIS: How to Make a Detox Bath”

Our bodies are subject to many harsh chemicals in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the body care products some of us lather on our skin. If the toxins remain in the body it is possible for our organs to become increasingly toxic leading to all kinds of possible illness. It is possible to recognize when your body might be needing to detox. If you are feeling sluggish, bloated, achy in the joints, having brain fog or just need to relax, a Detox Bath might be just what you need!

These are the ingredients I use in my Detox Bath

(I use about 1/4 cup of each one and add 20-40 drops of Lavender Essential Oil)

Magnesium Flakes ~ Adding Magnesium Flakes to your body, provides magnesium through the skin. Magnesium is necessary for heart function, bone density, muscle cramping, sound sleep, many metabolic reactions in the body, and much more. Many people are deficient in Magnesium and this is a great way to get Magnesium in the body and relax at the same time.

Bentonite Clay ~ Bentonite clays helps in the detoxification process stimulating the lymphatic system to deeply cleanse by pulling toxins out through the skin.

Baking Soda ~ Baking Soda helps to drain the lymphatic system of toxins. Baking Soda not only helps soothe skin rashes, it helps to restore the acid/alkaline balance in the body. Baking Soda has also been known to counter the effects of radiation.

Epsom Salts ~ Epsom Salts is used as a method for detoxification. The magnesium sulfate that is in the salts help to detoxify with medicinal and cleansing actions like if you were soaking in a sulfur hot spring. Epsom Salts helps relax muscles while pulling toxins out.

Essential Oils ~ You can use any of your favorite essential oils. I love to use Lavender Oil. If I don’t have oils I will break off a branch and some flowers and put it straight in the bath. Lavender is great for soothing the skin and helping with scrapes, cuts, bruises and skin irritations. It is also great for relaxing and unwinding after a long day right before bedtime.

* You can also add Apple Cider Vinegar as it balances the body back into an alkaline state. It soothes and softens the skin too. Himalayan Pink Salts helps rid the body of toxins as well as helps with skin problems, joint pains, insect bites, poison oak/ivy irritations and much more.

Relax and Detox while you take a quiet moment for yourself and your overall wellness.

Please feel free to write me with questions or comments!

I love hearing from you!

In gratitude and service,

~ Alex

DAVID GUTIERREZ: “Himalayan salt: The ‘purest’ salt in the world and its numerous benefits”

himalayan salt

Salt is just sodium chloride, and it’s all the same, right? You use it to add flavor to your food, and keep your body’s sodium levels from going too low or too high, and that’s it, right?

That may be true of highly processed table salt, but as with most other foods, salt varies widely in terms of purity, quality and micronutrient content. According to many natural foods advocates, the purest and highest quality salt you can find is Himalayan crystal salt.

Himalayan salt, which is often pink in color, has its origins 200 million years ago in crystallized beds of sea salt. When the Himalayan mountain range formed, these former seabeds were covered with glaciers that later protected the salt from pollution. Himalayan salt has been called the purest on earth.

Sheltered for millions of years

This unique purity is part of what causes many people to prefer Himalayan salt even to sea salt. Since Himalayan salt originated in the oceans, it contains many of the same micronutrients as sea salt. But because it has been insulated from the ongoing pollution of the oceans, and because it is less processed than salt extracted from the ocean, it is less contaminated, and may contain higher levels of trace nutrients.

In fact, some sources claim that Himalayan salt contains all 84 trace nutrients required by the human body. Believers in energetic healing say that the unique crystalline structure of the salt stores vibrational energy, which can then be transferred to human cells and promote health.

Certainly Himalayan salt is a far better choice than normal table salt, which has been treated with chemicals including bleach, that strip away all the minerals except for sodium chloride. It then typically has synthetic iodine and anti-caking agents added to it, both of which make it harder for the body to absorb the nutrients therein.

Indeed, some natural health advocates believe that the negative health effects widely attributed to salt may actually stem from the highly processed salt that most people consume. The correlations seen in those studies are also probably skewed by the fact that so much salt is found in processed food, and therefore the people with the highest salt intake tend to be those who eat the most processed foods and the least whole foods, fruits and vegetables.

Eat it, cook on it or bathe in it!

Advocates of Himalayan salt say that it has been shown to have a wide range of health benefits, including promoting vascular and respiratory health, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, stabilizing the pH of cells, improving hydration, preventing muscle cramps, strengthening bones, promoting healthy sleep, slowing the effects of aging and even boosting libido. Consumption of Himalayan salt may also help remove heavy metals from the body.

Himalayan salt can be used to replace normal salt in any recipe, and can be ground as finely as needed. If purchased in large slabs, it can also provide unique cooking benefits. These thick salt slabs can be heated up and used as excellent cooking surfaces that distribute heat very evenly. They can be used to sear vegetables or meat, or even fry eggs. The slabs can also be used as flavor-enhancing serving platters – chilled for foods eaten cold, or even frozen for cold dishes like ice cream. Because salt is naturally antimicrobial, the slab only needs to be rinsed or scrubbed after use, not disinfected.

Himalayan salt is also prized for its air purifying effects, and can also be bought in the form of crystal rock lamps. It makes an excellent bath salt, and is said to contain more than 80 skin-nourishing minerals. Bathing in Himalayan salt is said to soothe muscle aches and stimulate healthy circulation.

Himalayan salt can usually be purchased at health food stores. It is also available online.
