2. Reducing Asthma Symptoms
According to studies, Himalayan salt lamps are highly effective at treating asthma symptoms, as well as allergies. This makes a lot of sense, seeing as salt is hygroscopic. What this means, is that the lamps will attract water molecules from the air and trap dirt, pollen and smoke along the way.
Anyone with asthma will be particularly prone to these contaminants and may find that they lead to swelling in the wind pipe – which is what leads in turn to asthma.
Likewise of course, it is small particles in the air which are also responsible for many people experiencing allergic reactions. Here, the reaction is a result of the body mistakenly interpreting a non-harmful substance as a potential danger. The result is that it reacts as it would do to poison – hence the swelling, the nausea etc.
By removing these elements from the air Himalayan salt lamps may be able to remove the very things that cause these two conditions.
