Ionic Crystal Salt Lamps Positive Ions
Ions are nothing more than atoms or molecules that have gained or lost an electron
Positive ions have lost an electron through the process of air pollution and other environmental causes.
The "airtight" (Hermetically Sealed) construction of today's homes and offices prevents the electrical nutrients of the outside air from treating the air inside our homes and workplaces.
Our modern convenience electrical appliances such as high-voltage networks, heating and cooling systems, cell phones, TVs, radios, transmitters, radar systems, computers, exhausts, fluorescent lighting, cigarette fumes, etc., produce large quantities of positive ions creating an electrical imbalance in the air and causing the deterioration of our physical and emotional well being.
When workplace Negative Ion concentration is lowered, workers complain of headaches, lethargy, dizziness, nausea, depression and irritability.
Beware "positive ion poisoning"!
Along with all the benefits modern technology has provided, unfortunately the 20th century industrial environment has drastically upset ion levels and the "natural" electrical quality of the air.
While very few human activities add the beneficial small negative ions to the atmosphere, many practices increase the levels of positive ions.
Positive ions are also produced by combustion, by electronic apparatus and by synthetic materials and fabrics - all of which are extensively used in urban societies. And outdoor air quality, while important, is not the major issue.
The problem is further compounded by central heating and cooling systems and by the effects of people crowded together and breathing in confined spaces.
Most indoor time is typically spent in relatively tightly sealed "energy efficient" buildings, where many pollutants - both gases and particulates - become concentrated and reach their highest levels.
It's also indoors - including inside cars, trucks, airplanes, etc. - where, as Albert Krueger, MD (the late UC Berkeley researcher and founder of the Air Ion Research laboratory) argued, most individuals are exposed to either ion depletion or a condition called "positive ion poisoning.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that average people spend 80-90% of their lives indoors, where the air is usually worse.
