Athletic performance is a complex trait that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.
The human body possesses an enormous, astonishing, and persistent capacity to heal itself. Disease generally occurs when we abuse our bodies or deprive them of basic requirements to keep us healthy over extended periods. Every second that we’re alive, the cells in our bodies are endlessly working to bring us back to a natural state of homeostasis or equilibrium. When we turn to medicines or physical manipulations of our body’s systems to heal us, we are really only facilitating our bodies’ natural ability to heal from within.
Air ions are floating around us all the time. Some are negatively charged and the rest are positively charged. It is known that negative ions depletion or the lack of presence is the source of a wide range of human health problems, both mental and physical. Scientists say it’s all about ions, or, more specifically, negative ions. Ions are charged particles in the air; some are charged negatively, and some are charged positively. Negative ions are basically produced through water molecules, which is why they are in such beautifully abundant supply near fresh, flowing water supplies such as rivers, streams, seas and waterfalls.
Negative ions may also boost the immune system and help the body heal itself.
A study published in 1986 showed results from wounded healing of rats whose skin had been deprived of epidermis. Their skin was healed in three hours because they were exposed by negative ions. The scientist behind the research said that if soft tissue is deprived of oxygen it will promote the growth of harmful microorganisms such as Clostridium perfringens and Staphylococcus aureus, both can be killed by negative ion if pulsed to damaged tissue.
In 1959, a researcher named Dr. Kornblueh treated 138 burn victims at the Northeastern General Hospital with negatively charged air. What he found was that almost 60% of the burn victims experienced a significant reduction in pain and discomfort, while at the same time healed faster and more thoroughly. The hastening of the process may have been due to the ability of negative ions to prevent microorganism infection.
Japanese scientists called for analysis of long term effects of artificially made negative ions. With the hope of recommending the use of generators that produces negative ions to improve indoor atmosphere of places with high level of positive ion such as work environments.
The more you know about how your body works, the better able you are to make the choices necessary to enhance both the quantity and quality of your life!
