Balancing Positive and Negative Ions for Your Health

I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to talk about ionization and proper ion balance in the body.

Lately I have used a new vial called the "Polarity" vial to muscle test ion balance in the body.

The human body is a balance of postive and negative ions. Most of us are inundated with positive ions, which are emmitted by electronics, radiation and UV rays, fires and lightening, and more. Positive ion generation has increased with us living in the "concrete jungle" which disrupts natural ion balance. The increasing use of electronics is where we are also seeing much of our positive ions coming from these days.

Negative ions are generated with evaporating water such as on the beach or waterfalls, in nature and ionic minerals. Since we spend less and less time outside, we no longer absorb as many negative ions.

Negative ions increase oxygen carrying capacity in the body, particularly to the brain, resulting in increased release of serotonin and other feel-good neurotransmitters. Negative ions also have been found to alleviate depression, allergies and asthma. Negative ions boost immune system function as well.

I muscle test each of my patients for ion balance in his/her body, to see if there seems to be any imbalance. With chiropractic kinesiology and certain treatment techniques that I have learned from my mentor, optimal ion balance can be supported and increased during treatments!

I also encourage all of my patients to get outside into nature to get your negative ions! You don't have to be at the beach to do this. Walking on the wet grass in the morning barefoot is a great way to absorb some negative ions. You may also see some pink salt lamps in my office, which are emitting negative ions into the air constantly.
