Metabolism, which is the process of obtaining nutrients from the blood and excreting waste out of the body is vital to the human cell. The more negatively charged ions in the blood the healthier the cells and the more efficient the cells metabolic processes.
If there are more positively charged ions in the blood, the slower and less efficient the cell’s metabolism. This causes the body’s cells to weaken, get sick more frequently and age faster. Eventually the body’s immune system will shut down.
We as humans are surrounded by ions. Positive ions are frequently found in the air we breathe. These free radicals migrate in many places, harmful chemicals, pollution from exhausts, smog, electrical and electronic equipment, fluorescent lighting, synthetic fabrics and fibers to name a few. Positive ions have had a major impact on our health due to the amount of time people spend in unnaturally charged electro-climates, a staggering 50 to 100%!
US Dept of Agriculture
A recent study by the US Dept of Agriculture found that ionizing a room led to 52% less dust in the air and 95% less bacteria in the air. (Many of the pollutants found in the atmosphere reside on floating dust particles).
The Fifth Element: Crystal Rock Salt
Salt crystals will boost the number of negative ions in a room. The dry negative ion rich environment at Salt of the Earth help to clear out bronchial tubes and sinuses and to kill bacteria and other microbes.
