Research into the Effects of Negative Ions

Many doctors in Japan have been studying the effects of a reduced number of negative ions in the environment and the effects on the human body. They have found that low levels of negative ions in the atmosphere results in supressed immune system, nervous system and digestive function.

Nanzandoh Medical Clinic published the findings of their research into this, which showed that negative ion therapy was effective in treating high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, tinnitus, nerve disorders, respiratory and digestive systems, thyroid and skin issues.

This is because negative ions neutralize free radicals in the body by preventing oxidisation in cells. Some of the healing properties of negative ions are as follows:

  • Cell rejuvenation – by revitalising cell metabolism
  • Promote better digestion – by easing tension in the stomach and intestines and promoting the production of digestive enzymes
  • Strengthen the immune system – by promoting production of globulin in the blood resulting in resistance to illness
  • Increase metabolism – by stimulating the exchange of electronic substances in cell walls
  • Blood purification – by increasing levels of calcium and sodium in the blood stream
  • Recovery from exhaustion – by increasing oxygen levels in the blood and therefore accelerating recovery from fatigue

Another clinic in Shinshu has treated Alzheimer’s patients with negative ion therapy after research was carried out in Shinshu University, which found that negative ions work to heal damaged cells tested in mice.

Dr Tomoh Tsubushi (medical professor at Tokyo University) conducted research that found that negative ion therapy could normalise blood pressure, reduce serotonin levels and accelerate recovery time after exercise.

Research by Shiseido (A leading Japanese cosmetics company) found that breathing air that contained a high level of negative ions stabilised brain waves and resulted in a feeling of calmness.

There have also been studies conducted in the USA, which have found that exposure to positive ions for ten minutes reduced breathing capacity.

Further research at Oxford University in England found that negative ion generators improved the condition for patients suffering from asthma and bronchitis.

Surround yourself with negative ions to feel the benefits of this natural health treatment. Tourmaline is a stone that is a natural negative ion generator, so wearing tourmaline infused jewellery can increase the levels of negative ions being absorbed by your body.
