I've always been kind of skeptical of the holistic approach to virtually anything. I had a bad experience with a Doctor back when I was trying desperately to get pregnant who was very into holistic medicine. Since then, I have been hesitant to try a natural approach to healing and to be completely honest my first reason for reviewing the Himalayan Salt Lamps was because they looked neat. I know silly right?! I thought they were beautiful and I was willing to see what they could do because of it.
Himalayan Crystal Salt contains 84 different minerals and elements that can provide healing properties for not only us but our environment. Because of all the technology we have now a days, there is a lack of balance in the atmosphere. In order to keep a healthy balance, the air (that is filled with ions) needs to have an equal amount of positive and negative ions. The electronic devices give off an abundance of positive ions unfortunately causing "stress, insomnia and other sleep disorders, sinus and migraine headaches, allergies, asthma, and a host of other health ailments". Himalayan Salt Lamps produce negative ions naturally which can help alleviate symptoms caused by the disorders from positive ions. "Negative ions cleanse the air by removing dust, pollen, and bacteria. They also offset the effects of positive ions produced by electronics such as computers and televisions."
So what do I think after using my Himalayan Salt Lamp for a week? I think if I had more time to evaluate it I may have more details for all of you than I have. My salt lamp is beautiful! It gives off a certain energy when you walk in the room and at the same time it is extremely relaxing. I have it in my bedroom on a dresser next to the crib (and our bed). I have been sleeping really well the past couple days which could be directly because of the salt lamp. Don't tell my husband though because these salt lamps can also help with fertility when kept in the bedroom and I have been feeling a little more frisky lately (he he)! I've been shopping around the site lately and honestly wanting to purchase a few more! The customer service there is great too making me so comfortable purchasing from them.
Cost: $29.99 Mini Himalayan Salt Lamp
Available to purchase: Your Salt Lamps
Recommendation: I think if you are interested and/or curious then you should give them a try. These are not too costly for what they are supposed to help everyone with and they are again beautiful! However, I am not going to claim that they will cure anything or actually help any of the above issues for you personally. It depends on the individual person of course, but I will probably purchase another one myself.
