Negative ion therapy is a health treatment that is based on the idea of using negative ions to rid the body of toxins that lead to a number of different health problems. The basis for negative ion therapy as a health care alternative rests in the idea that the atmosphere is loaded with negatively charged electrons or ions. By using those electrons to remove elements that have an ill effect on the physical and emotional well being of the individual, the body’s immune system can begin to make the necessary repairs and bring the individual back to being healthy. Because the purpose of this therapy is to remove the toxins from the environment and the body, any condition that is interfering with the natural function of the muscles and nervous system are isolated and reduced through continued use of the therapy. As the obstacles to good health are brought under control, the individual begins to enjoy an improved state of physical and mental health.



Negative ions are in the air that we breathe as well as in our bodies. They neutralize free radicals, revitalize cell metabolism and enhance the immune system. In addition, they purify the blood and balance the autonomic nervous system, producing deep sleep and healthy digestion. Negative ions also protect the body and mind from the harmful effects of environmental stressors such as electromagnetic fields (EMF). See below for more on the healing properties of negative ions.

What are Negative Ions?

For thousands of years, people have noticed "the electricity in the air", but it is thought that the formal study of ions did not begin until recently. In 1899, two German scientists, Elster and Geitel, discovered that there are particles in the atmosphere that carry electrical charges. These particles were later named "air ions" by the British scientist Faraday. "Ion" was taken from the Greek language, in which it means to "go" or "wander about."

Ions are invisible particles, either molecules or atoms, which bear an electric charge. Atoms, for instance, consist of an atomic nucleus that contains neutral neutrons and positively charged protons, as well as circling electrons that are negatively charged. When an atom is in a neutral condition, the number of protons (+) and electrons (-) is equal. When the number of protons and electrons is not the same, the particle becomes an ion that is either positively or negatively charged. Generally speaking, positive ions are harmful to the human body, while negative ions are good for it.

Electrons are highly sensitive to shock, impact, electric current and atmospheric change. Air pressure or heat, for instance, can cause electrons to escape from atoms and disappear, increasing the number of positive ions in the air.

As mentioned above, the balance of negative and positive ions in the air can easily become unbalanced. A good example of this can be seen in the changes in ion levels associated with storm activity. Several hours before a storm, for instance, low atmospheric pressure causes the number of positive ions in the air to increase dramatically. In contrast, during a storm, negative ions increase.

The ratio of negative to positive ions is criticall, because negative ions are able to neutralize the harmful effects of positive ions. At the beginning of the 20th century, the ratio in the atmosphere was 1.2 negative ions for every positive ion. However, in recent years, the ratio has reversed and now there are 1.2 positive ions for every negative ion. This is due to air and water pollution, electromagnetic fields, and other factors.

Positive and negative ions are also in our bodies, and the ratio of ions in the air we breathe influences the ratio in our bodies. Ions enter the body through the lungs (respiration) as well as through the skin - especially through meridian (acupressure) points, which have weak electronic resistance. Then they travel through the blood and lymphatic systems to cells in the body.

2% of the oxygen we breathe turns into free radicals in our bodies. When these free radicals combine with free radicals produced by other sources (such as heavy metals, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and positive ions), they become more harmful. Negative ions work to prevent oxidation by neutralizing the free radicals in cells. As a result, cells are revitalized, and immunity and resistance are strengthened. Negative ions also work to balance the autonomic nervous system and improve gastrointestinal function. They can relax the mind and body, giving deep sleep, increased metabolism, stabilized appetite and blood pressure, enhanced recovery from physical exhaustion, and help one feel refreshed. Negative ions are essential to overall health.
