Importance of Fresh, Clean Air

Fresh, clean, outdoor air is “alive” with a combination of both positively and negatively charged oxygen atoms. Indoor air that is reticulated through air conditioning and heating systems becomes polarized, containing only positively charged ions. Indoor air pollution from carpeting, paint, upholstery, wallpaper, ceiling tiles, and hundreds of other synthetic products, release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde and benzene into the air making it even more unhealthy.

Fresh air refreshes the cells, lowers body temperature, improves lung functioning, improves the sense of well-being and kills bacteria and viruses in the air. High concentrations of negative ions are essential for high energy and a positive mood. In nature, negative ions are generated by tumbling water, like the ocean surf and waterfalls and though electrical thunder and lightening storms.

Unfortunately, most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, often with windows that are sealed shut, breathing very little fresh air. If you are stuck indoors most of the time, there are some things you can do to “revive the air you breathe.

1. Get a room ion generator and keep it in the room you spend the most time in.

2. Take breaks outside in the fresh air whenever possible, and open windows whenever it is practical to do so.

3. Have indoor plants throughout your house and in your workplace. NASA scientists have discovered that many houseplants are able to extract volatile organic chemicals from the air thus filtering out toxins as well as providing a constant source of oxygen.

4. Installing a decorative indoor waterfall will generate some negatively charged ions that will help to purify and recharge the air.

Take some time out to get fresh air, regularly! [ Copyright © 2004 World Image Naturals™, Inc. ]
