There are more negative ions near the sea
The Wind Is Made Up Of ....
Yes, the wind is made up of different things. How can this be, you ask? No I don't mean dusts and dirt particles, rain and anything else physical that we can see.
The wind is made up of positive and negative ions. When there is more of one than another we are affected. We are adversely affected by positive ions in the air and positively affected by negative ions in the air.
Physical and Mental Symptoms Caused by Wind
The Swiss Meteorological Institute, in 1974 conducted a study that showed some winds could cause physical problems. Winds can actually cause physical problems, for example 'headaches, dizziness, eye twitching, nausea, fatigue, saline disorders, water retention, respiratory problems, asthma, slower reaction time' and manymore serious problems. Mental disorders are also caused by an increase of positive ions such as nervousness, emotional unbalance, irritation, apathy, listlessness, insecurity, anxiety and depression.
People who are affected by allergies are often affected by the wind.
The Chemistry of the Wind
Well who would have thought that so much that affects us can be accounted for by Chemistry? I always seem to be mentioning Physics or Chemistry.
Let's presume at the moment that we all have an idea of what an atom is, okay?
Now atoms can get unbalanced. Some lose their positive or negative charge. They are then called ions. The hot dry winds carry positive ions - they have lost their electrons. At the seaside where there is more moisture in the air we have more negative ions - the air has lost its protons. We can also experience negative ions in the air after a thunderstorm or near a lake.
I hope you experience negative ions in your air today
