Influence Over Mood
One of the most popular reasons individuals look into Himalayan salt lamps is to help with seasonal affective disorder (SAD). These lamps are thought to be effective for other forms of depression and mood disorders as well. Research is showing negative ions can help to increase serotonin production, which gives individuals a boost in their overall mood. Negative ions may also help increase the amount of oxygen in the brain. The problem here is the studies used negative air ion machines, rather than Himalayan salt lamps. These two devices emit different types of negative particles. That being said, therapies all over the world use pink and orange lights to help patients increase their level of focus and be more positive. Although the reasons are not fully understood, emerging research is backing the idea that Himalayan salt lamps influence mood, although not for the reasons individuals initially suspected.
