Negative ions directly applied onto the skin are delivered directly to the body through the skin's surface via conduction. This greatly differs from ambient air ions delivered through the popular negative ion generators used for air cleaning, which NASA reported positively affecting only 26% of people. The direct conduction of negative ions allows for an immediate response and change in the body's electrical field for all people, assisting them to achieve an optimal physiological state.
When negative ions are applied to the body, the calcium and sodium circulating in the blood are ionized. This increases the blood's pH and can have an overall alkalizing effect on the body. Proper blood pH is essential for optimal health.
When the amount of negative ions in the blood increases, there is an increase in inter-cellular communication. Cellular metabolism is facilitated, and as a result there is an increase in cellular nutrient uptake and cellular hydration. In addition, cellular waste materials are efficiently excreted. With the increase in cellular metabolism, an optimal cell function can be rapidly revived.
Indoor environment, city living, automobiles, exposure to electronic devices, EMF's (electro-magnetic fields), and environmental pollution all result in increased positive ions in one's body, tilting the ratio of ions towards the positive. This results in a physiological imbalance, which may have detrimental health consequences. Too few negative ions in our body can cause a number of health issues.
