When you turn on a Himalayan salt lamp , it releases negative ions into the air which purifies it. This kind of light therapy has been around for many years all over the world, but it has recently become popular in the United States. Salt lamps have been the buzz for a while now, so I decided to give it a try this semester.
This product scientifically claims to help purify the air, help migraines and headaches, enhance the immune system, enhance serotonin levels and decrease stress. But does this product actually do what it says? For the most part, I believe so!
My salt lamp sits on my nightstand by my bed, and I turn it on throughout the day for usually four days out of the week.
I feel as if the air in my room has improved since having the lamp on throughout the semester. When I first moved into my apartment, the air seemed dusty and congested. Now the air feels a lot cleaner than before.
Personally, I don't think that the lamp has helped me deal with migraines and headaches since the headaches I get are usually from a lack of caffeine in my system (college student problems).
It's hard not to get sick when you're in college, but I have gotten sick more during previous semesters than I have this semester. I would credit that due to having my salt lamp this semester.
I do feel more calm and content when I am sitting near the lamp in my room, especially if I am doing homework in bed or writing journal entries.
Overall, I would say the Himalayan salt lamp is a decent product. I am satisfied with the results thus far. If you would like to give light therapy a try, I would recommend trying the Himalayan salt lamp technique!
