The Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps: Half Full or Half Empty?

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

First I have to say, I am a metaphysical girl. What do I mean by that? I am a spiritual being; I belief in Angels, Energy Healing, the Power of Crystals, then Energy of the Earth, and a Higher Power. One of the loves of my life, my 25 year old son, is an engineer. He’s a science guy. While I love him with all of me and love to debate with him often about the differences in our beliefs, it makes me really check into things that I believe in so that I can have an intelligent sparring match about certain topics with him. One of those topics of our disputes was the Himalayan Salt Lamp. The benefits stated below are in fact found, but on such a small-scale, that I could not find documented scientific evidence.

This is what just one Himalayan salt lamp company touts: Emits negative ions that fight against electromagnetic radiation and fights fatigue and sluggishness; It also increases the flow of oxygen to the brain, protects against airborne germs, increases work productivity and creativity, improves bone strength, soothes allergies; Sleep better & wake refreshed.

First, Electromagnetic Radiation is emitted from your TV, computer, cell phones and all electronics that seem to be attached to our hips and in some cases used in our daily lives more than 10 hours out of our day. These daily emission of electromagnetic radiation contributes to lowering the melatonin levels within our bodies. Lets look at why melatonin is so important to us. Melatonin plays an important role in the sleep cycle, sometimes called “The Dracula” of hormones as it only comes out at night. Lower levels of melatonin affect your immune system, your mental health, and is the regulator of sex hormone production. This is huge. Melatonin deficiencies have shown in patients with cancer, heart disease, ulcers, and even Alzheimer’s. I personally had a low level of Melatonin when I lost my thyroid and my sleep was disrupted regularly. Aside from the issues of not having a thyroid, not being in the right mind as well due to lack of sleep and proper necessary hormone levels throughout the body was truly awful.

When the heat from the salt lamp warms the crystal, a negative electrical charge is emitted, ionizing our atmosphere, which in fact helps to neutralized harmful EMF radiation. Just imagine though, this small Himalayan Salt Lamp and the huge amounts of electronics that we surround ourselves with daily. Negative Ionization is truly a benefit here, but, unless you are a person who is off the grid, so to speak, the electromagnetic radiation of all of these electronics, far outweigh any negative ions the salt lamp can produce. You can certainly do better for yourself here and put a salt lamp in every room you spend a considerable amount of time in, including your office, which might be significantly favorable in the hormone department of your body.

Secondly, negative ions are proven to increase the oxygen in our brain and other organs, as well as boosting the serotonin levels which results in higher mental energy and alertness, and makes us feel happy. It’s for this reason that most people feel more refreshed and happy while at the beach… Running water is considered the world’s greatest source of negative ions. While with this lamp, we’re talking about just a small amount of negative ions in your home or work space. But doesn’t that account for something? In my world and belief system, every little bit of good you do for yourself is growth to all of you; physically, mentally, and spiritually. And every little bit of kindness you give to yourself, is negating (even if just a minute amount), the toxicity that surrounds us on a daily basis.

Thirdly, the salt lamps are also said to be Hydroscopic which means it attracts water vapor from the air to it. In attracting the water vapor, along with that vapor, it’s also attracting things trapped inside the water molecules like mold, bacteria, allergens, and other contaminants improving our air quality by trapping it to them into the salt crystal. Talk to the person who has severe allergies, or severe asthma and see how they feel about improved air quality. To them, even the tiniest amount of improvement can be expressed as monumental in their ability to breath and feel well because they are getting more oxygen to their brain than usual during allergy season. Personally speaking on allergies and someone who is allergic to dust; I work in an office building that is not always properly cleaned or air purified as maybe I would do to my own home, and this is life altering daily, not just allergy season.

Salt lamps may even help with SAD – seasonal affective disorder. Due to the soft orange hues and soothing colors reminiscent of a sunshine effect, they tend to be calming and increase can even increase clarity and focus of daily chores or work that sometimes gets to be overwhelming during this time. Some people suffering from SAD have been starting to put these lights on timers to relax the mind during a time of less sunlight. Again, it may not be a cure-all but any bit of relief is better than no relief, and this is all natural.

So this is my own personal hypothesis. Just as being on a beach with the salt air, helps many people feel and breath better, so too, does the salt lamp. While they may not may an enormous difference in negative ions, a benefit is a benefit and better than none at all. Salt lamps definitely don’t hold a candle to an air purification system, but much like the relief attained by breathing in the salt air at the seashore, it can be an additional healing asset in your life. Truly, the way I see it is, you absolutely could be a “glass half empty” kind of person, and don’t want to hear about any of these so-called “tiny” perks because you consider them to be too insignificant to care about. That is definitely your right, but in my opinion, any slight improvement to your health, mind, & body, is worth it, because YOU are worth it!! Lastly, with the aesthetics alone, you have can add a salt lamp to any room to serve merely as a beautiful accent piece.

I’d love to hear what experience you may have with a salt lamp. Immediately, when I got mine, I noticed a difference in my breathing as well as my energy level, which I’ll be honest, truly did surprise me. I just love mine!!

Everything To Know About Payday Loans Online

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Payday Loans are the loans which are granted for a very small amount of time on the guarantee that they would be repaid as soon as the next salary or income from their source of earning. Such loans have an extremely high rate of interest and are called by different names such as payday advance, payroll loan, salary loan, small dollar loan or cash advance loan. A payday loan can be offered to anybody irrespective of their credibility. The bank does not see the credit worthiness of the borrower in case of granting this type of loan as it is granted for only 15-20 days and is not long term. The borrower should, however, keep in mind that taking a payday loan would not increase his credibility in the market. He, nevertheless, should have a steady income, permanent bank account and a work experience of at least 6 months to avail this loan.

Online payday loans are becoming more and more popular these days. One the best thing about online payday loan is its simple application process. The application takes less than 5 minutes to complete and the portal is usually open 24 hours a day. The borrower can simply file the application for the loan online and the funds are transferred by direct deposit to the borrower’s account. The repayment of loan in such a case is directly withdrawn electronically from the borrower’s account after he gets his next salary or after his post-dated cheque becomes mature. A list of the Direct Payday Lenders is as follows:

  1. Check Cash: They give their approval application within 5 minutes by providing loans online or at their offices is U.S.
  2. CashAdvance.com: They provide an online payday loan once the customer is approved by checking his valid account and not any prepaid or savings account.
  3. Cash Central: This is one of the oldest payday lenders in the country with a 24*7 online application portal.
  4. MypaydayLoan: This too provides the customer with an approval response within 4 minutes of a completed application form. It is one of the largest of its kind in the country.
  5. Blue Trust Loans: It funds loans between $300 to $1250 in almost every state. With a payoff time of 6 months approx.., these loans have no penalty for repayment.
  6. MoneyLion: They offer loans to almost every state in the country with varying rates and terms in each state. It has loan programs available for consumers on all ends of the credit score spectrum.
  7. Net Credit: It provides an instant approval decision with no borrowing limits for first timers. Applicants are eligible for $1000 to $10000 loans.
  8. Maxlend: They have many different loans and terms and credit worthiness is not a criterion which is considered. It offers personal loans up to $1300.

There are some jurisdictions which limit the amount of interest charged on loans including payday loans. Depending on the method used, the annual percentage rate (APR) of each loan may be different. In U.S.A, for example, the Uniform Small Loans Laws (USLL) has fixed the APR between 36% to 40%. The major advantages that these types of loans provide major profitability to the industry, welfare for the households is increased as people who do not require short term loans can avail long term loans easily and it provides a service which is unavailable in the market as the requirement of the loan is usually by people who have exhausted all their other options of buying short-term credit. This type of loans is also criticized by some people on the ground that they drain money from the low-income group communities by charging exorbitantly high rate of interest. Also, in some countries, the collection practices of the lenders are extremely aggressive unlike in countries like U.S where there is a standard collection practice set by the law.
