Negative Ions: Proven to Heal
In Philadelphia's Northeastern Hospital, severe burn patients receive some unconventional yet effective treatment thanks to Dr. Kornblueh, who, in 1959, put to the test his belief in the benefits of negative ions. After studying the brainwaves of burn victims suffering severe pain, Dr. Kornblueh found that exposing these patients to a high quantity of negative ions essentially eliminated their pain. In fact, in eighty-five percent of cases, negative ions were so effective that pain-relieving narcotics, such as morphine, were completely unnecessary.
For example, in one instance, a factory worker was rushed to the hospital after suffering second-degree burns to his legs and back. Within minutes of being exposed to negative ions, the pain was gone. The hospital was so convinced of the benefits of negative ions through Dr. Kornblueh's studies that it had negative ion generators installed in all post-operative wards. Throughout the years, the hospital has further found that negative ions do more than deaden pain: they also reduce the risk of infection and promote faster, more complete natural healing of wounds while lifting the spirits of the burn victims.
One of the reasons negative ions are so effective in healing burns is due to the ions' natural ability to remove pollutants from the air. As contaminants such as allergens, bacteria, and viruses are eliminated, wounds are kept cleaner, resulting in decreased irritation of wounds and reduced possibility of infection. Thus, wounds are able to dry out faster and therefore heal more quickly and thoroughly, resulting in less scarring and ultimately reducing the need for skin-grafting.
While negative ions do not actually kill airborne micro-organisms, they do effectively eliminate these hazardous particulates from the air, in the same way that negative ionization works in the earth's natural atmosphere. Upon being released from a negative ion generator, as in the case with a room ionizer, the ions attract to positively charged particulates, including dust, mold, and germs. As these particulates and ions form clusters, theybecome heavy and fall out of the air to surfaces where they can be disinfected rather than causing infection mean that you’ll have to wipe clean all the surfaces where the particles settle.
However, it is not only the fact that negative ions effectively remove air pollutants that makes them so valuable in treating burn patients. These powerful ions also promote healing of the body's systems and cells. As negative ions are released from the room ionizer, they circulate in the air, and as they are inhaled, the result is: increased oxygen levels in the blood, relaxed nerves, revitalized cell metabolism, and strengthened the immune system. Together, these effects revitalize the body; thus, supporting and advancing the healing of wounds.
On top of the physical benefits of negative ions, these charged particles promote healing by lifting the spirits of patients. Negative ions, which abound around waterfalls, at the beach, and in the mountains, are actually known to reduce depression and irritability, increase alertness, and improve sleep. Therefore, those patients given the advantage of recovering in a room with a negative ion generator demonstrate a much greater optimism than those who are not exposed to room ionizers.
Over the years, Dr. Kornblueh and his associates have proven that the benefits of negative ions are extensive. With their ability to eliminate air pollutants, promote physical healing, and lift spirits, negative ions offer severe burn patients at Northeastern Hospital - an advantage of which everyone should perhaps be aware. With numerous healing effects, negative ion generators, such as room ionizers, can work wonders in the restorative process of burn victims as well as in anyone exposed to these powerful healers.go google and find out more on negative ions benefits. there is lots and tons of proven effect of negative ions from medical write up till to layman terms. i have read up a U.S. Dept. of Agriculture report sometimes ago and they also found ionizing a room / interior will led to 52% less dust in the air, and 95% less bacteria in the air (since many of the pollutants found in the air reside on floating dust particles).
if ion negative from those ionizer is not working, those air con manufacturer wont include it as part of their air con system. im using a sharp plasmacluster in my room and it have clear up my blocking nose each time i wake up in the morning compare to those non ionizer function air con. expensive model of toyota like camry also incorporate plasmacluster from sharp for their air condition. for further info, u may log into sharp website for their info on plasmacluster which is more advance as they incorporate ion positive but in controlled manner for balance.
some ppls may say their car ionizer didnt give any obvious result is due to the wrong car ionizer the bought which serve no functions as said. for Kenari / Kelisa ionizer, basically is a good one. lets say ur ionizer is working unit (still functioning and free from accumulated dust, as most ppl tend to neglect to clean up accumulated dust at the air inlet), do ur car have bad odor from your air conditioning (but subjective to ur cooling coils is not clogged from accumulated dust which will give some weird smell too)? do u find that dust is easily acumulated on ur dashboard? i have one kenari and a myvi for comparison, i found the different IMHO
additional like pandan leave / charcoal is also a good option for addtional odor removal practice too.
