What Is So Great About Tourmaline?
1. Far Infra Red
The sun heats up the earth during the day and the earth then emits far infrared radiation at night, which are the same healing energies emitted by a sauna. Tourmaline is also known to emit far infra red energy. It is theorized that body heat is absorbed by tourmaline and is then it radiated back into the body, accelerating the healing process.
2. Electromagnetic Energy
The earth is more negatively charged than the human body. Most people have too many positive ions, which are associated with acidity, free radicals, aging, oxidative stress, and chronic inflammation. Being in contact with the earth makes us feel better since we gain negative ions from the earth. Mountains, waterfalls, beaches, and oceans, all naturally have more negative ions. Did you ever feel the air after a thunderstorm? It is invigorating and chockfull of negative ions. We can breathe in negative ions, or absorb them through our skin. The geomagnetic field on the earth’s surface is produced by the north and south poles and averages about 0.45 gauss. The gauss of the human body is a mere fraction of that of the earth’s.
Tourmaline crystals mimic the earth with a north and south pole of their own and can act as electron donors and produce more negative ions. Negative ions are associated with more alkalinity, less free radicals, anti-aging, reduced oxidative stress, and inflammation reduction.
3. Serotonin Production
These negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and can naturally stimulate increased levels of the mood-enhancing hormone serotonin, which is nicknamed “the feel good hormone”. Prozac also increases serotonin levels but has many potential side effects. Serotonin is well documented to reduce the feelings of depression, relieve stress, relax and boosting daytime energy levels, produce quality sleep at night and wake up more refreshed.
4. Schumann Resonances
Each cell in the human body has an electric field. It is theorized that the human body is the healthiest when the frequency of the electric field is that of the earth, at 7.83 HZ. This is referred to as Schumann resonances. Tourmaline crystals are like “mini earths”. They have a north and south pole and their own electrical field, similar to the earth’s. It is hypothesized that tourmaline helps the body to resonate closer to the ideal 7.83 HZ, therefore balancing the body closer to the optimum function.
Studies of people with winter and chronic depression, done by Columbia University, show that negative ion generators, relieve depression as well as antidepressants. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and increased energy.
Tourmaline-Infused blankets offer all of the benefits of negative ions. That is why they are considered by many as “First Aid For Your Mind & Your Body!”
