What Are Negative Ions?
Simply put, ions are atoms OR molecules that take on an
In our modern world, we have too many positive ions, and not

chemicals, and even winds, such as the Santa Anas in Southern
California, rob the air of negative ions, and put too many
positive ions into the air.
Salt crystals naturally create negative ions, so halotherapy

Why does that matter?
Because more than 40 years of research, conducted around the

Various acute or chronic respiratory diseases
Other studies show that negative ions reduce:
And negative ions can dramatically increase your:

after a thunderstorm, itís hard to expose yourself to as many
negative ions as you can inside a halotherapy room. Itís an
enjoyable way to spend 45 minutes literally recharging your
