All life on this planet has a bioelectric field of energy surrounding it and thus can easily be influenced by things like electromagnetic pollution and more. Furthermore, the cells of our body typically carry a negative charge. One of the ways toxins negatively affect our body is through the absorption of what’s known as positive ions.
Positive ions are small molecules that have gained a positive charge. Most forms of pollution, toxic chemicals, pollen, mold, pet dander, and other harmful chemicals in the air all carry a positive electrical charge, making them positive ions. And unfortunately, in today’s world, there are significant quantities of positive ions in the air, much more than what our ancestors and hunter-gatherers had to deal with. They are especially problematic in congested cities, office buildings, and industrial zones.
If you’ve ever felt depressed, anxious, or stressed for no reason at all, you might be suffering from what’s known as positive ion poisoning. These dangerous little ions are small enough to be absorbed through your skin and lungs and aren’t visible to the naked eye. In fact, you’re likely breathing them in right now as most homes are polluted with positive ions.
Other potential downsides of absorbing too many positive ions include higher inflammation levels, mood swings, chronic pain, worsened allergies, and more.
What Generates Positive Ions?
In general, anything that’s toxic or has electromagnetic capabilities will generate harmful positive ions including:
- Electronic devices like televisions, phones, and computers
- Fluorescent Lighting
- Toxic carpeting, upholstery, and paint
- Air pollution, especially in crowded cities and industrial zones
Most studies have found that levels of positive ions are extremely high with homes, cities, and office buildings.
What Generates Negative Ions?
To experience all the benefits of negative ions, you’ll need to spend a lot of time outdoors. Here are just a few places where negative ions can be found in high quantities:
- Dense forests
- After heavy rain and storms
If you don’t have access to the outdoors, then you might want to consider buying a negative ion generator. These devices usually come in two forms: one that you can plug into the wall that purifies the room it’s in. And smaller ionic bands that generate negative ions on the go.
Generators are great if you’re in one spot all the time but if you’re always on the move you might want to consider a negative ion wristband instead.
