Negative Ion Generators

    Can someone recommend a negative ion generator that does NOT create ozone? I understand they exist and have slightly more voltage control circuitry in order to avoid ozone as a byproduct. Not having a lot of luck finding one so far....

    not exactly what you're asking but Himalayan salt lamps are natural ones when heated. I will be purchasing a small hot plate to heat mine at night without needing to emit visible light. Also creates a stabilizing magnetic field that mitigates some unwanted EMF (in my case from airplanes passing overhead).

    Do you have any data on how many ions that would release per volume of salt? Any idea how much the commercial units create?

    no data, but qualitatively I can feel a very helpful difference. (I had been dealing with EMF hypersensitivity). The more the salt block is heated - stove works better than candle, I don't have a lightbulb one - the better the effect for me. Also works better for me to carry the heated salt block around with me to support my own magnetic field, rather than placing it near a possible EMF source away from my body.

    I have one ion to mention here and will give no context..............Ag.

    I put on my humidifier that puts out AG+ ions to purify the water. Immediate improved signaling - less EMF hypersensitiviy - in an room wide area. Bigger coverege than my small heated Himalayan salt lamp - which now has a hot plate for overnight heating right near head of my bed.

    Can you recommend one of these Himalayan salt lamps?

    What my original question was noting is that most ion generators produce ozone as a byproduct of the same process that creates the ions. Breathing in ozone is dangerous and can damage lining of the lungs.

    Which humidifier are you referring to? What is make and model?

    That is the exact one that I have. No idea if it is helping or not, sorry but I like it. We even saw one in a small Fossil store in Colorado that was HUGE. I estimate is was 2-3 feet tall and about 40-50 pounds.

    The URL I gave you was a search result on Amazon that shows MANY different products. Can you supply a link to the particular one you like? I know zero about these things.

    Nicole, where do you keep your lamp?
    Wondering about night time use... stove heated lamps ?? have you seen any?

    Thanks Non...so that must be what lilreddgirl is using to carry around...clever.
    Have a friend that is being impacted with nnemf and perhaps that's a way to go protem...

    I wouldn't want to bet my life that those didn't have some kind of heavy metals bound up with the salt. Since it is not a food, I doubt they test for it. Where was the salt obtained, and how pure is it?

    A biochemist I hired made me aware of this issue for chemicals in general, and his thing is to always order pharmaceutical grades when they are available. Food grade doesn't even guarantee you that there are not heavy metals and contaminants (arsenic in rice is at very toxic levels these days). This item isn't even food grade, so it's not wild speculation or worry.

    Here is the one I have for the house. It was on sale when I got it $18.00.

    And this is the one that I have at my desk at work.
    http://www.amazon.com/HemingWeigh-N...18651088&sr=8-7&keywords=Himalayan+salt+lamps

    I turn on the one at work as soon as I get in. And like I said, I got all sorts of weird feelings when I started using it but that is all gone now.

    Jude, the one at home I have on when we are awake and it is in the living room where I sit.

    I wouldn't suggest a dimmer switch in a salt lamp, though.

    This one looks really nice:

    http://www.amazon.com/WBM-Himalayan-1326-Natural-Purifying/dp/B001C4AHHE

    Since these lamps work by taking moisture out of air, I wonder if we should use a small humidifier with them?

    What kinds of feelings were you getting at first?

    What heat setting are you using on that hot plate? I would worry about that not being very stable, fire risk, etc.

    What is the reason for that recommendation?
