Improve your mood

You know that feeling when you just want to huddle in the sofa with a good book and some tea? Well, to set the tone for that ritual and to put yourself in the right mood, you can place a Himalayan salt lamp in your living room.

With the right lighting, your mood is bound to improve, and the lamp’s warm, soothing glow will help you relax for hours on end.

Purify your indoor air

The salt in these lamps is said to absorb moisture from your indoor air, but it also absorbs and retains dust and pollution, as well as cigarette smoke.

The heat from the lamp will then allow the “trapped” water to evaporate, but the harmful particles stay in the salt. With this simple process called hygroscopy, your lamp can improve your air quality.

Boost your sleep quality

Himalayan salt lamps have the potential to produce negative ions, which are, it turns out, positive for our sleep quality. If you keep the lamp in your room, but you find it difficult to fall asleep with any light on, you can turn them off at night, but let the ions set the stage for better sleep.

Keep those allergies under control

Another common respiratory issue so many kids and grownups have? Pesky allergies! Whether they are caused by pollen, dust, or anything in between, Himalayan lamps can keep your indoor air cleaner. That means your allergic reactions will be under control and you can use other means such as plants and essential oils to soothe your respiratory system even more.

Add more natural light

Thanks to their gentle pink hue, these lamps are very useful especially during the colder months of the year when you have less sunlight exposure. Their warm light is gentle for your eyes, and it gives your home a beautiful look and feel. That can be helpful if you’re dealing with seasonal affective disorder or simply feeling blue when the weather isn’t all that sunny.

When combined with other healthy decorative measures, the Himalayan salt lamps can do wonders for your wellbeing. We often need some help in alleviating stress and improving the quality of our life. Sometimes, all it takes is minor changes in your environment such as adding a few lamps here and there. If you find yourself in need of more lifestyle changes, book a consultation with us and start 2022 with the right goals in mind!

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

— Cindy Toste

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
