In these days of hectic lifestyles the Himalayan Natural Crystal Lamps are a great solution. Even medical professionals have advocated their use to ease depression, insomnia, and stress. Also, they negate positive ions in the air and emit healthful negative ions, which is a boon to those suffering from allergies, dander, asthma, and blood pressure. Today's electronic items emit positive ions which make us feel sluggish and fatigued, and the lamps overcome this.
