The Scoop On Ions

I’ve always loved a good thunderstorm!  The sound of the rain on the windows can be both exciting and soothing.  There’s just something so cleansing about the earth after a good rain.  It’s undeniable.  When I learned about positive and negative ions, I realized why.

What is an ion?


Ions are molecules that have gained or lost an electrical charge.  They are odorless, tasteless, invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance. They are created in nature as air molecules and they break apart due to sunlight, radiation, moving air and water.

Negative ions are GOOD. Think mountains, waterfalls, beaches and rain. That’s why when we visit these places or after a thunderstorm we feel so refreshed.  Negative ions are exceedingly beneficial for a person’s metabolism.  You can’t overdose on negative ions.  They act as pure water to cleanse away dirty poisons.  They uplift your spirits by increasing the flow of oxygen to the brain resulting in higher alertness and increased physical energy.   Negative ions are a natural anti-depressant.

Positive ions are BAD.  They are the cause of many major health and soil problems. They are, to a large extent, products or by-products of government and military exercises and projects going on in the sky above us.  Atmospheric projects of military weather control are spraying barium salt and other chemical aerosols down upon us and the soil.

Negative Ions (Yeah!) Positive Ions (Boo!)



What many have suspected for years has recently been brought to light.  Last week, according to MIT’s Technology Review, it was noted that “Sometime next year, Harvard professors David Keith and Frank Keutsch hope to launch a high-altitude balloon, tethered to a gondola equipped with propellers and sensors, from a site in Tucson, Arizona. After initial engineering tests, the “StratoCruiser” would spray a fine mist of materials such as sulfur dioxide, alumina, or calcium carbonate into the stratosphere. The sensors would then measure the reflectivity of the particles, the degree to which they disperse or coalesce, and the way they interact with other compounds in the atmosphere.”

In case you weren’t aware:

Sulfur Dioxide irritates the nose, throat, and airways to cause coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, or a tight feeling around the chest. The effects of sulfur dioxide are felt very quickly and most people would feel the worst symptoms in 10 or 15 minutes after breathing it in.

Alumina or Aluminium Oxide contact can irritate the skin and eyes.  Inhaling it can irritate the nose, throat and lungs.  Repeated exposure can lead to lung damage.

Calcium Carbonate is a physical irritant of the eyes, nose, mucous membranes, and skin of humans.  Contact with the eyes causes redness, pain and inflammation of the eyelids.

The reason I mention chemtrails is because they place an overabundance of Positive Ions into the atmosphere.  None of those compounds are good for us or the earth.  I don’t know about you but I don’t care very much for the idea of being used as a guinea pig without even giving my consent.  This is not a sci-fi movie.  This is real life and it’s happening to me and you.



Tesla experimented with electromagnetic flux and studied the earth’s gravitational field.  He discovered that the ionization of the atmosphere altered when it was charged by radio wave transmissions in the low frequency range of 10 to 80 hertz.  He also discovered that he could manipulate positive and negative ionization by manipulating radio frequency.  In addition, his experiments discovered that with positive ions people and animals became tired and lethargic while negative ions gave the effect of feeling active and energetic.

How Positive Ions Affect Us


Have you ever noticed that right before a storm your body may ache or you experience a headache?  Perhaps you feel overly anxious or irritable.  Here’s why.  The storm’s onset produces an imbalance in the air.  A lack of negative ions and an excess of positive ions. When there are too many positive ions in the air, the positive charge is transferred to you in the air you breathe from you lungs to your blood.

With every breath, air ions are carried into your respiratory tract to be transferred across the lungs into your bloodstream where they are taken up by the thrombocytes.  If they enter by part of molecules of oxygen, the positive ions are transported by your red blood cells.  Positive ions cause thrombocytes to release the allergy producing hormone serotonin which may cause serotonin hyper-function syndrome or “irritation syndrome”.

It is believed that serotonin is responsible for many of the unpleasant symptoms exhibited by persons breathing positively ionized air. Elderly people may experience difficulty in breathing and become depressed, apathetic and extremely fatigued.  Asthmatics wheeze, rheumatic’s joints ache, people experience sleeplessness, insomnia, irritability and tension. Hair and skin have an ‘electric charge.’ Migraine patients suffer with nausea and vomiting, and optical disturbances. People with heart conditions complain of palpitations, heart pain and oppression. Women before the age of menopause complain of hot flashes with sweats or chills. Hay fever patients get bad attacks of rhinitis with conjunctivitis, even though it isn’t even hay fever season.  Serotonin acts as a bronchial constrictor and slows the clearing action of the cilia thus allowing mucus to thicken.Even the healing rate of wounds has been known to slow down causing the risk of infection to increase.

Positive ions can contribute to mental illness.  There is evidence that when the positive ion index goes up during the Dog Days of Summer  so do violent crimes such as road rage, bank hold-ups and sex crimes.

As you can can probably surmise on your own, we want more Negative ions and less Positive ions in our lives.

Negative Ions


Negative ions are extremely beneficial to a person’s metabolism.  It is impossible to get an overdose of negative ions.  Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness and mental clarity.  They purify the body and wash away dirty poisons.  The more you are exposed to them the better and more uplifted you will feel.  They are found in abundance in places like the mountains, waterfalls beaches.  That’s why you feel so good when you go to those places.   Rainstorms also release an abundance of negative ions.  I have always felt cleansed after a rainstorm and now I know why.

In addition, amazingly all the ailments listed above that are caused by Positive ions can be reversed and alleviated by being exposed to Negative ions!  This is the only time when a negative creates a positive effect!

The beautiful thing about nature is that it has provided us with everything we need to live a long and healthy life.  You don’t have to go out and buy negative ions.  Nature has gifted us, all of us, with all the negative ions we could ever need.

So get outside as often as you can!  Go to the mountains and the beach.  The next time it rains open your windows!  Or better yet, take a walk in the rain and let those wonderful little negative ions work their magic!
