ION THERAPY

If you’ve ever felt depressed, anxious, or stressed for no reason at all, you might be suffering from what’s known as positive ion poisoning. These dangerous little ions are small enough to be absorbed through your skin and lungs, and are not visible to the naked eye. In fact, you’re likely breathing them in right now, as most homes are polluted with positive ions.

Positive Ions are generated by electronic devices such as phones, computers, TV’s, fluorescent lighting, toxic chemicals, carpet, upholstery, paint, pet dander, pollen, mold, air pollution, etc.

Other potential downsides of absorbing too many positive ions include higher inflammation levels, mood swings, chronic pain, worsened allergies, and more.

Negative Ion Therapy

When we introduce negative ions into an environment with positive ions, the unstable positive ions are neutralized. They clear the air of airborne irritants such as pollen, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, dust, pet dander and cigarette smoke. Negative ions are very beneficial for humans!
Negative ions produce biochemical reactions in the human body that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost energy.

Where do negative ions come from?

It should not come as a surprise that you will find the highest concentrations of negative ions in natural, clean air. At the foot of the waterfalls, the bursting of the water droplets releases electrons which ionize oxygen molecules into negative ions. Ions are found in high quantities in dense forests, waterfalls, oceans, and after heavy rain and storms.
One way to experience all the benefits of negative ions, is to spend a lot of time outdoors. If you don’t have access to the outdoors, then you might want to consider buying a negative ion mat, generator, or wristband. Negative Ion mats come in all shapes and sizes, as big as a bed or as small as a chair. Direct contact with your mat regularly will ensure that you are surrounded by negative ions. Generators plug into the wall and they will purify the entire room you’re in. Smaller ionic bands and necklaces generate negative ions on the go. Generators and Matsare great if you’re in one spot all the time but if you’re always on the move you might want to consider a negative ion wristband or necklace instead.
