Is There Real Science Behind the Effects of Negative Ions on the Human Body


I have been spreading the word about the benefits of negative ions and it is quite natural if you were to ask if there was any “real science behind this invisible phenomenon?” If you ask me, “Is There Real Science Behind the Effects of Negative Ions on the Human Body?” Probably better than the science that most of us do have access to, but the answer is, “yes.” There is plenty of science that verifies the efficacy of negative ions and negative ion therapy.

Beyond mother nature, this invisible energy can be measured by a variety of testing equipment, and thanks to studies being done by institutions such as the Columbia University in New York, where Michael Terman, PhD, says, “The action of the pounding surf creates negative air ions and we also see it immediately after spring thunderstorms when people report lightened moods,” and also reports, “The best part is that there are relatively no side effects.”

Terman also warns us about buying ion generators because the ion emissions that are reported in advertising can be highly overrated and may not be sufficient to yield an effective antidepressant dose.

For those who are looking for solid science and reputable research studies on the positive effects of human exposure to negative ions, they have been studied since the 1930s but the technology dates back to oceans, beaches, waterfalls, lightning, and storms. Dr. Svante August Arrhenius, a Swedish chemist, is credited with the discovery of negative ions. He formulated a theory regarding ionization (i.e., electrolytic dissociation). Dr. Phillip Eduard Anton Lennard, a Nobel Prize winner, confirmed that negative ions (i.e., anions) can be found in high concentrations at sea sides and in the basins of waterfalls.

Over at the Center for Applied Cognitive in Charlotte NC, Pierce J Howard, PhD, author of The Owners’ Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research, says, “Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.” And according to Howard, “They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”

Dr. Howard reports that some of us are more receptive to and are therefore more positively impacted by the exposure to negative ions, about one-third of us, and you can tell if you are noticeably positively affected by opening a window and taking in a breath of fresh, humid air, roll down the car window, or step outside.

A study conducted by the Department of Human Health Science, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Hachioji, Tokyo, Japan concluded that “Exposure to negative air ions significantly reduces blood pressure and heart rate.”

British researchers at the Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences in Liverpool exposed male subjects to negative ions and measured physiological responses, including body temperature, heart rate and respiration, while at rest and during exercise. Negative ions were found to significantly improve all physiological states, particularly during rest.

According to JM. Olivereau based on research conducted at the University Paris VI, a multitude of studies indicates that research works conducted on various forms of headaches indicate measurable reduction results with negative air ions.

A study conducted at the University of Surrey, England, by Dr. Hawkins reports headache complaints decreased by 50% with negative air ions.

A.P. Krueger at the University of California Berkeley concludes that no harm can come from exposing oneself to high levels of negative ions, specifically that no one as yet has found that the negative air ion concentrations may be harmful.


Pharma Science vs Natural Science

The pharmaceutical companies control the greatest majority of wealth on our planet, so they have the resources to pay for the science that supports their products. Time and time again, we see the long-term results of their studies, as patients have suffered or died from the results of their preliminary studies, then, on the other hand, there is the natural science that does make surprising discoveries and the results of these discoveries are sustainable over time. In the battle of pharma science vs. natural science, the negative ion is one such discovery that hangs in the balance.

There is much ado about negative ions in the emerging sciences that cause you to wonder if there really is something to this energy that surrounds us each and every day and how it affects our bodies and to a certain degree who we are and how we integrate with the world around us.

The health benefits of negative ions have been widely reported since the 1950s and scientific studies have been conducted by accredited and reputable research bodies and medical professionals, which has fostered the experimentation and use of negative ions in the treatment of a variety of maladies. While you might think that this research may have been promulgated among Eastern philosophical circles, the scientific research was conducted in Russia, Europe, and the United States.

What Does the Research on the Effect of Negative Ions Indicate?

Scientific conclusions of these studies have revealed a surprising array of potential medical applications for this unseen energy, which cannot be bottled and profited from by pharmaceutical companies.

Some of them include the effective treatment for

  • Depression
  • Regulating mood swings
  • Respiratory problems
  • Healing wounds
  • Burns
  • Insomnia
  • Cortisol reduction
  • Airborne virus elimination
  • Cancer treatment

Heightening human potential, such as

  • Increased cognition
  • Strengthening memory and recall
  • Reduction of recovery time in athletes
  • Increased reflex reaction
  • Improved musclebuilding

You can see why this concerns the pharmaceutical companies and the medical community they support. The idea that something that is invisible, cannot be seen, bottled, patented, or trademarked, and therefore profited from, can heal or improve the performance of human beings is ludicrous and a threat to their solvency (and superiority). This is no doubt why you will find other studies that may contradict the original findings and scientific conclusions financed by the pharmaceuticals.

A proactively wise person will exercise his or her due diligence by conducting his or her own research before challenging anything the doctor might say or warn you about. It has become a common response to say, if you question a thing, Google it and see. Only you may need to dig a layer deeper when trying to conduct research that may run counter to pharmaceutical science because there seems to be data that suggests that Google might be in bed with the pharmaceutical companies and will alter search results in favor of these corporate giants. So, looking for alternative search engines that do not filter their results may be advisable.

To think that by just walking on the grass barefoot, lounging by the lake, taking a walk on the beach, sitting on a dock, smelling the fragrance of live ocean waves, or taking a stroll outside following a storm, that any of this could have any medicinal benefit is absurd.

They might try to dissuade the medical community and the general populace by propagating misinformation, but the fact remains, “it works.”


How to Connect to Your World

God has given you everything that you need to enjoy all the best things this life has to offer by learning how to connect to your world. Your world was pre-loaded with soothing and healing energies that you may access just by placing yourself in the natural energetic fields which can be found in certain places and circumstances.

Waterfalling: Enjoy a natural negative ion shower

So, where are these places where you can nearly feel the love of the angels swirling around you? You can schedule a visit to a natural body of water, as a beach or lake, and you can maximize your connection to the planet by kicking off your shoes and walking with your feet in the sand. This is a tremendous bonding of your human body with the earth’s mother, and you can feel the efficacy of it immediately.

Granted, you may not live near a large body of water, so do not give up. Next, look for a place where you can find naturally growing grass in the dirt of our planet. Remove your shoes and walk barefoot on the grass. It is best to balance your body above your feet and move around in the grass. Feel free to take breaks to sit, and grasp the grass with your toes, then get up and continue to ambulate barefoot in the grass. The best effects can be noticed walking on the naturally moist grass, either from the morning’s dew or a fresh rain.

How to connect to your world requires removing any synthetic barrier that may exist between you and the earth, which is a lot less common in our present-day culture than it was for our ancestors. And all you need to do is to bare your feet. No cheating here, if you really want to experience the fullness of the energetic cleansing. That means, no socks, no flip flops, or sandals. No walking on the path or boardwalk, get those bare-naked feet into the sand or in the grass.

You spend so much time separated from your world, that you probably don’t even remember what being connected to it feels like. We’re separated from the world by wood, concrete, and asphalt, especially in the city, and natural bodies of water and grass growing from the earth may be hard to find. Grass can grow in dirt separated from the earth, and you will not be able to plug into the planet’s energy if it is disconnected. You might be able to recreate the feel of natural grass, which can be therapeutic, but you will not tap into the energy.

This energy is verified and measurable by the scientific method and has been identified as negative ions. These negative ions permeate all body tissues, blood, bone, and brain barriers, soothing the holistic being and boosting your immunity and these effects are increased as more connective exposure is achieved over time.

You will also find the air and the wet surface of the earth (even if separated by synthetic barriers) after a storm completely energized with the mother earth’s naturally negative ions. Get out in nature’s remnants after a storm connects with your flesh and you can feel the soothing heartbeat of your world.

If you are stuck in the city and have no way to get to bathe in natural negative ions, science has provided ways for us to access negative ions, which even though they are not necessarily naturally connected to the world, science reinforces that the same benefits can be realized by exposing yourself to negative ions, in whatever way you can find to get yourself into this powerful field of energy.

One way could be to get a grounding mat. You can stand barefoot on the grounding mat that is plugged into the ground circuit of your home or office, and you find yourself bathing in the flow of negative ions. Other methods of getting in touch with negative ions include using a negative ion pendant, or having a Himalayan salt lamp nearby,

If you are using any of these other methods to shower yourself in negative ions on the office or at home, think about removing the producers of positive ions from the room that you’re trying to use to charge yourself with negative ions. As you may have guessed that they will cancel each other out, and there may be little or no negative ion flow for your body to absorb.

Items that produce the counterproductive positive ions found in Electronic Magnetic Fields (EMF) include phones, entertainment centers, computers, televisions, tablets, smartwatches, and other electronics, especially those that may be connected to Wi-Fi.


Benefits of Negative Ion Therapy

For over 250 years, our world has been pumping pollutants into our atmosphere and dumping toxins into our water, and if that wasn’t enough, we are being showered in toxic electronic transmission frequencies that have been growing in intensity over the last 80 years.

There are very few life forms including flora and fauna which would not test positive for these contaminants, they have become a part of out world, and in the most industrialized areas, the pervasive effects can be easily reviewed, not by testing the air or the water, but by reviewing the quality of life of the inhabitants of the area in any geographical location.

What do you find?

  1. Decreased life span
  2. Weakened immune system
  3. Lack of energy
  4. Pervasive cancers
  5. Increase mental illness, sickness, and disease
  6. Irritability, anger, hatred in the rise
  7. Increased rate of aging
  8. More allergies and respiratory issues
  9. Loss if mental acuity and physical agility
  10. Reproductive problems and birth defects

Not only are the people suffering from the minimal quality of life and are not living longer, but the wildlife native to these localities is at risk of extinction as well. Our communities are deteriorating right before our eyes, and it’s easy to understand why people might feel hopeless, asking questions like, “What’s the point?” or, “What could one person do?”

One person may not be able to battle a system that is clearly out of control, but one person can be proactive and focus on what he or she could do to protect him or her-self from the meaningless destruction of quality of life. Some will move to remote properties and live off the land. These people are referred to as Preppers or off-grid. Others still remain in the cities, suburbs, and towns, and must find their own ways to find methods to safeguard themselves against the powers that place them in harm’s way every day.

We know that positive ions (which though they sound “positive” they are hugely negative and life-threatening) are produced in the body by exposing oneself to all this toxic energy and contaminants, and this is responsible for our rapidly declining health.

And it’s not just you who is suffering the effects of these positive ions, but it affects your children, and your pets, putting them as risk as well. There has been a growing awareness of the positive effect of negative ions on the human body for the last 65 years.

A basic interpretation regarding the benefits of applying negative ions to an environment flooded with positive ions can be found in stormy weather. When Mother Nature is having her way with us in terms of weather systems, the whole environment is heavily influenced, especially the human body, and you can see the effects by again measuring quality of life. People get headaches, irritable, suffer from lack of energy, depression, the immune system declines, and if the weather systems persist for too long, people get sick, they feel a resurgence of effects from previous injuries, and start going to their doctors and hospitals. Yet, when these same people are exposed to negative ions during the weather event, they immediately start to feel better.

Applying negative ions to a human body that is high in positive ions has an instantaneously noticeable and measurable effect. You can easily measure the effect, not by hooking you up to fancy equipment, but by how you feel. People who felt lethargic feel more energetic. People who had headaches or generally not feeling well instantly start feeling better, and those who are suffering from irritability start feeling more peaceful and serene, and it goes on and on (and on and on).

What are the most powerful ways negative ions can benefit you?

Better Sleep

Most people who suffer from pervasive positive ion energy have trouble sleeping at night and its one of the things that you are likely to notice soon after exposure to negative ions. You might think that this is based on anecdotal testimonials, which it is, but it is also backed up by science. For instance, in one scientific study conducted on athletes, they noted the positive effects of applying negative ions to competitive sports participants. They measured increased performance and shorter recovery times, but what they didn’t expect to find was that the athletes who were exposed to negative ions were experience better, deeper, sleep overnight. You can expect this as well.

Sufferers of insomnia and sleep apnea have also claimed to have enjoyed the better sleep provided by the negative ions.

Respiratory Recovery

People suffering from respiratory issues report rapid recovery from being exposed to negative ion energy. Negative ions are known to moderate blood pressure by dilating blood vessels which positively supports a healthy cardiovascular system, reducing heart attacks and strokes across the board.

Just by breathing the air, we are putting our physiology at risk by breathing in the toxicity all around us (which also is true for what we eat, drink, and otherwise expose ourselves to either intentionally or unintentionally) we are ingesting contaminants that find their way into the bloodstream, thereby clogging and disrupting normal blood flow, negative ions help to reverse these conditions.

Lungs also clear and benefit as well from other respiratory problems are reduced such as hay fever, emphysema and bronchitis, and others.

Increased Immunity and Viral Protection

More science measuring the effects of negative ions on human physiology measures greater immunity by stabilizing the ionic balance of the body. This harmonic balance allows the natural immune system to operate more efficiently. Which offers an increase of 40% protection from invisible viruses. And the approach of applying negative ions does not interfere with other medications, such as antibiotics.

What Other Benefits are Measurable?

Exposure to negative ions measurably increases natural levels of essential sodium and calcium, while promoting a greater alkaline pH balance. Not to mention countering depression and other negative mental issues such as irritability and angry outbursts by boosting serotonin levels in the brain.


Positive Ions Bad Negative Ions Good

What’s all this hubbub about negative ion energy? We are hearing a lot about negative ions being good for us, but on the surface, “negative” doesn’t sound very positive, does it? It turns out that when it comes to ions, you must just accept that positive ions are negative and negative ions are positive (kind’a how I think about some conditions of algebra), it just is what it is.

The world and all its technology produce ambient energy, toxins, and pollutants that bombard our bodies with positive ions, which is “bad” and we can counter these bad energies by interrupting the positive ions with negative ions, which are “good.”

I first found out about this from Japanese technology that is rooted in energetic material found to exist in that particular part of the world.

Remember that we are talking about energy. Everything is energy, you are energy, I am energy, the space between us, every cell of your body, the space between the cells, everything in the universe, and even the void of outer space is energy. Everything, even the rocks are made of energy. In Japan, 26% of the ground surface is covered by volcanic deposits including volcanic rock which naturally emits energy in the form of negative ions. If you are an energy-sensitive person, and you are visiting Japan for the first time, you may be able to actually feel the energy, and if you have energy sensing equipment, you can certainly measure it. The places where it measures the highest are where the greatest deposits of volcanic rock have settled.

The people from Japan mostly take for granted that they live atop these energetically charged negative ion-producing minerals from inside the volcanic rock. It feeds their soil with energy which enhances the energetic value of what is grown around it. The food that comes from this energetically charged soil has been attributed to playing a major role in the extensive health and longevity of the people who live there.

Their soil is enrichened by the minerals that exist in the volcanic rock that emits high concentrations of negative ionic energy naturally without any external power source. This is quantum science energy at work in a natural environment, allowed to do its work without the intervention of technology.

Since the Japanese live in an environment rich with this energy and eat the food that is born in and infused with this energy, they enjoy long, healthful lives, especially compared to their fellow beings that reside in other countries, such as the United States of America, Canada, and the United Kingdom. In these other countries, they and the other people who live outside Japan, just do not live as long.

Traditionally, Japanese people have used this negative ion energy stone technology to aid in sports performance and to increase the healthful recovery from wounds and disease. They are credited with boosting intelligence, and personal performance, as well as treating a variety of negative emotional states and other physiological ailments.

Scientists in Japan were the first to reveal this energetic technology and they are credited with its discovery. After the release of this information, Japanese entrepreneurs began harvesting energy stones and exporting them as good luck charms, to aid in boosting the immune system, and in alternative healing modalities.

Now that we understand this technology, we can reproduce the results by combining all 70 natural mineral components with the highest precision to provide a constant flow of negative ions with unsurpassed output. This is how quantum science emerges and evolves over time. In the present day, we do not have to harvest from Japan’s Mother Nature.

This engineered volcanic rock is heated and cooled, increasing the heat until the moment that all of the mineral components meld perfectly and resonate with this powerful negative ionic energy in perfect orchestral harmonic resonance, resulting in a bio-ceramic form.

This specific frequency of ionic energy is said to easily pass through the body’s protective layers, infusing the bloodstream with negative ions that help to reduce stress and depression by boosting serotonin and elemental energy in the body. You can also expect to enjoy increased mental concentration and physical dexterity and performance.
