The crystal salt lamps of the Himalayas, besides having a warm and environmental brightness, produce negative ions naturally. It is known that negative ions help relieve symptoms caused by allergies, sleep disorders, migraines and depression. Negative ions help mitigate common indoor air pollutants such as dust, mold, moisture, and electromagnetic fields from computers and other television devices. When I bought a salt lamp, I was not too sure of them. I bought a pair to try to tell me that if they did not work, they would make really great night lights. As a mother of eight children, you can imagine that she was busy and was not trying to prove them. When my son Ryan was 5 years old, I suffered from migraines every day. I lived with constant pain. This migraine lasted four days. He was in a dark room for days, lying on the bed screaming. We circled our pediatrician and nothing could alleviate his symptoms. We gave him ten times the normal dose and he was always hysterical.
Finally, at that moment I realized that I had to calm him down. He had read that the salt baths of the Himalayas had calmed down, but he had never tasted them. So I threw it into the bathtub with salt from the Himalayas and plugged a salt lamp into his room. After a few minutes in the bathroom, he calmed down. After twenty minutes, his headache had completely disappeared. He dressed and went down the stairs shouting: “Mom, I can see you again!” I felt so bad that I did not even know that I had lost my sight. It was almost four years ago. To date, he has not had a migraine. During his trip, he only had two small headaches that we could try giving him edible salt from the Himalayas.
